The Occult - Occultopedia: The Occult and Unexplained Encyclopedia
Welcome to Occultopedia, the premier internet index of the paranormal, occult and inexplicable. In addition to being the foremost online destination for information about the supernatural, unusual phenomena and the occult, Occultopedia also features a variety of resources for the pagan community, new age buffs, unexplained phenomena enthusiasts, curious minds, and skeptics as well.Occultopedia is the genuine article, the original and the best internet index of the extraordinary and uncanny, shamelessly copied by many, but never equaled.

Occultopedia is a work in progress, and is not completed. There are so many aspects to the occult and the extraordinary, it would be next to impossible to actually finish such a project.
