This has been a long time in the planning. I hope all of you will spread the word by linking to this post and informing people via email.

This October will mark the kickoff of the Institute for Paranormal, Preternatural, and Parapsychological Studies (IPPPS). It is an online institute. There are roughly 60 six-week courses. Besides myself, Dr. Judd Burton is the other faculty member. I may be recruiting other faculty as we proceed.

The goal of the institute is to conduct formal online courses on various topics that fall under the IPPPS acronym. Students will be reading the best academic material on the subject matter and engage in other weekly learning activities with fellow students and the faculty (and likely other guest lecturers).

Here are the divisions and “departments” in IPPPS:

Division of UFO Studies

Ufology and U.S. History

UFOs, Science, and Technology

The Alien Abduction Phenomenon

God, Man, and ET

Division of Preternatural Studies



Giant Folklore


The Occult



Religion and Mythology

Division of Parapsychology


Remote Viewing

Of the 60 courses, some have been selected for the 2010-2011 calendar year (first six week module begins October 4). Students can register at a deep discount until September 19.  I’ll be doing some UFO history courses and a couple classes going through the works of Zecharia Sitchin and Barry Downing.

For those who are interested in biblical and ancient studies, I’m launching an institute for that as well. See the Naked Bible blog for info. Those who read this might find the courses on the book of Enoch of interest in that other institute.

Please visit the site; all the details are there.  Hope some of you register!
