Our culture is a walking contradiction. Drives me crazy. We are on board with Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, or any “professional” atheist writing today…then these same people buying the books of these methodologically inept charlatans of logic, flock to theaters to see a movie about nothing more, or less, than our fascination with the paranormalContinue reading “Christ Goes to the Movies: The Conjuring and Resurrection”

Ghosts in the New Testament? Looking for Phantoms in the Gospel of Mark
INTRO With a name like ParanormalChrist, perhaps some biblical discussion on the Paranormal is in order, if nothing but to quell and satiate our fetish for paranormal activity. As has been argued in other posts, Christianity is a paranormal faith. It’s a faith that not only embodies paranormal elements in the general sense of thatContinue reading “Ghosts in the New Testament? Looking for Phantoms in the Gospel of Mark”
Zizek reads the Bible: Thoughts on Incarnation
/ The incarnation is the perverse core of Christianity and the perverse core of the perverted god’s that desire the absolution of a person for the sake of their own divine egos. When the falsely innocent Christlike figure of pure suffering and sacrifice for our sake tells us: “I want nothing from you!” fails miserablyContinue reading “Zizek reads the Bible: Thoughts on Incarnation”
Easter Hope is Paranormal Hope that our Bodies Matter
ParanormalChrist’s genesis is the very ambiguous event that we call the Resurrection of Jesus. It is this singular event that has shaped the contours of faith, belief, hope and dared to challenge the norms of creation by declaring that the impossible has happened and it has happened definitively in Jesus. And this impossible event, thisContinue reading “Easter Hope is Paranormal Hope that our Bodies Matter”
“I See Dead People”: Zombie Apocalypse or Resurrection of Jesus?
At the core of Christianity is a belief in the para-normal; there is nothing more para-normal than resurrection. Can we at least agree on this one point before you read the rest? The recent craze over the “zombie apocalypse” has got nothing on dead people coming out of tombs. Long before Woody Harrelson and “Zombieland,”Continue reading ““I See Dead People”: Zombie Apocalypse or Resurrection of Jesus?”
Dialectical Thinking is Paranormal
When it comes to thinking, dialectical thinking IS definitely paranormal. There is no other philosophical method that has the ability to show us that what we consider normal is actually not normal at all…that alongside the normal trapped in its web is something more true, more normal yet also allusive. Dialectic is the constant reminderContinue reading “Dialectical Thinking is Paranormal”
God of the ParanormalChrist: A Definition of Real
I will frequently be using illusively symbolic language on this blog. While many folks have an aversion to philosophical language, sometimes words like “being” “real” “truth” “virtue” simply can’t be defined in any plain, simple, way. To do so is to tame them, domesticate them, and to trade in a thoughtful life for one thatContinue reading “God of the ParanormalChrist: A Definition of Real”
What is Paranormal Christ?
Google “paranormal Christianity” or simply “paranormal” and see what happens…the perverse core of christian fascination with a reality more than the physical world will immediately become apparent. Our culture is fascinated with what happens “when we die” and where “we” will go when our bodies are no longer full of life. In general, this fascinationContinue reading “What is Paranormal Christ?”
