Charles Fort

What Magic Is This?

Fish falling from the sky. People disappearing from one area only to be found in another. People igniting on fire for no reason. Such phenomena was finally given a voice in the early 20th Century all thanks to one man- Charles Fort. The word 'Fortean' is used by some to describe this phenomena but the thing is, cataloguing strange instances when reality seems to get weird should not be the only thing that Charles Fort is known for. The man who invented the Supernatural (a term Charles despised) has much insight into the odd currents of our reality and deserves a bit more respect, especially as things start to get much more strange.

11.11.19. Charles Fort: Prophet of the Damned

The Micah Hanks Program

On this episode of The Micah Hanks Program, we lead off with the latest update in the ongoing search for Amelia Earhart, as well as an unusual planetary appearance as one of Earth's neighbors makes a rare transit across the sun. We also discuss moon rocks, mystery objects falling from the sky, and our study of deep space with probes like Voyager 1 and 2, which might eventually be discovered one day by other civilizations far beyond our solar system.  Then later in the program, we turn our attention to one of the most influential minds of the 20th century, Charles Fort. It was Fort's The Book of the Damned--published one century ago this year--that ushered in a new era of thought in relation to anomalous phenomena in nature, sparking renewed interest and a wave of like-minded "heretics" that would follow in his footsteps. However, while Fort has been called "the man who invented the supernatural," arguably his most prescient contributions of all had to do with his collection of data pertaining to aerial anomalies, which seemingly anticipated our coming to awareness of UFOs. We examine Fort's writings that dealt with these cultural predecessors to modern UFO reports, comparing the similarities and differences, and studying the way that the discussion has changed in relation to the topic since the "pre-UFO" era when Fort wrote his magnum opus on "Forteana."   Below are links to stories featured in this week's episode:  Possible Bones of Amelia Earhart Sent in for Highly-Awaited DNA Testing Monday, Mercury Makes Rare Appearance with a Trek Across the Sun.

Charles Fort: The Father of Paranormal Research

Supernatural Tendencies Podcast

Charles Fort.The Father of Paranormal Research If you enjoy stories of the paranormal or supernatural, chances are, you had a story that sparked your interest. Bigfoot, Area 51, or possibly your own local folklore may have opened your eyes to fantastical circumstances outside of the normal and everyday. But how exactly did these strange tales become the topic of actual research and awareness?  For this we can largely thank one man. Making unexplained phenomenon his life’s work, he discounted nothing and everything at the same time. Exploring topics never before discussed such as ufos, spontaneous combustion and even poltergeist activity, He outraged some and inspired millions. Charles Fort, commonly regarded as the father of paranormal studies, started a trend that would echo through the years. Through compilation, skepticism, and a knack for finding the blatantly “weird”, Fort would form the world of paranormal research as we know it, even if through methods and means not in-line with how many perceive it today. Join us this week on The Supernatural Tendencies Podcast where we’ll discuss the life and times of this key figure in paranormal research history.
