(Investigator 162, 2015 May)



The Occultopedia website presents the supernatural and the paranormal — as does Investigator Magazine — but in addition we also get everything "occult and unexplained".

The home page says:

Occultopedia is the genuine article, the original and the best internet index of the extraordinary and uncanny, shamelessly copied by many, but never equaled. Online since 1995 … Occultopedia still is the principal online resource for those looking for the unexplained, the curious and the unusual.

The author, "Marcus", attended universities in Brazil and USA and "as a young man he spent a couple of years in the Amazon basin…"

Occultopedia describes many beliefs; has links to other websites; includes lists of books and references; and offers items for sale; but is short on skepticism and criticism:

Occultopedia does not promote or discredit beliefs and opinions about any of the topics encompassing the occult sciences and the paranormal, but only describes the rich variety of anomalous, unexplained, sometimes totally bizarre phenomena, and informs as for the meaning of the words and terms, providing clear definitions and understanding.

Occultopedia has a describing/defining/reporting agenda. Investigator in contrast publishes criticism and debates so that nothing of a seeming paranormal nature is endorsed unless it survives scrutiny.
