Anomalies Research Society is a network of experienced researchers of diverse backgrounds who investigate paranormal and anomalous claims.
Mission: To be a respected network of ethical, evidence-based, rational investigators by reaching scientifically sound conclusions regarding extraordinary claims. We do this by first establishing the validity of the claim through examination and fact-checking, consulting with professionals, and documenting the cases for the purposes of education and public understanding.
This is not another gadget-laden ghost chasing crew. ARS is not about playing pretend scientist or “proving” anything. Members take very seriously the role of paranormal belief in society and understand that personal experiences perceived as paranormal are emotional and frightening.
Started by a geologist and photographer, we aim to provide a unique objective evaluation of paranormal and anomalous events and claims – hauntings, ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot or other mystery animals, natural anomalies, and strange events.
