Science is constantly reshaping itself through unexpected observations, new ideas, and revisions to old theories. While terms like "anomalies" or "alternative" may seem pejorative from an orthodox perspective, from an historical view these are the topics are the very life-blood of science. We must have heretics and revolutionaries challenging our beliefs, and advancing the state of the believable, otherwise science will stagnate into dogma.
This category includes a wide range and variety of topics dealing with alternative or "out of the mainstream" science. This includes unexplained phenomena, alternate theories, strange animals or people, and many others. Try to find the single best subcategory for your site.

Psychic phenomena, UFOs, ghosts, and reincarnation are related subjects that sometimes are addressed on Alternative Science websites listed in this category, but they are primarily covered in other categories. If you are submitting a site on one of these topics, consider submitting to one of the following categories, as appropriate:


Contains sites and categories dealing with anomalies found in the sky.
Please submit sites that deal with Flying Rods only.
Historically, alchemy is based on the ancient belief that all matter consists of various mixtures of four basic elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. In current usage, any chemistry based on ancient principles rather than modern physics may be included.
Sites dealing with alchemy as an alternative form of, or an alternative to, chemistry should be submitted here. Anything relating primarily to health or longevity should go to an appropriate subcategory of .
Objects found that are misplaced in time, such as ancient computers or spaceships.
Anomalous people have either origins or abilities that are scientifically inexplicable.
About "hums" and another anomalous sounds and noises.
Contains newsletters, newsgroups, forums, message boards, and chat rooms which discuss science topics that are not considered to be in the mainstream science studies, as of this time. For example, discussing where the "face" on Mars was built by alien beings would be a fitting subject for this category.
Please submit sites that cover unconventional scientific ideas in a discussion format.

Ideally, the topics would be very general in nature or cover a varied array of scientific fields.

Creationism, as defined in Webster's New Universal Dictionary, is the doctrine that matter and all things were created, substantially as they now exist, by an omnipotent creator, and not gradually evolved or developed. As such it is not only a religious view and an (unorthodox) scientific doctrine, but a philosophical position about the origin of the world and life.
This category is dedicated to discussion of creationism as a position in science or theist philosophy.

Sites concerned with religious aspects of creationism, or solely with the criticism of Darwinian thought, should not be submitted here.

In particular, this category is not for the debate about teaching creationism or creation "science" in US high schools, nor about evidence in the Bible for or against creationism.
Not for Creation Science sites. They should be submitted to Society/Religion_and_Spirituality/Christianity/Topics/Origins_and_Creation/
Cryptozoology is the study of hidden animals not formally recognized by science, but supported in some way by other forms of evidence such as eyewitness accounts or tracks. Examples include Bigfoot and lake monsters (such as the Loch Ness Monster).
Please submit general cryptozoology sites here. If your site deals with only one cryptid or type of cryptid, please submit it to the appropriate category.

If your site is all about chupacabras, then you would go to the chupacabra subcategory, and submit there.

If you submit a site to the wrong category, we will move it, and there will be a delay in listing your site.

Sites about dragons, mermaids, fairies, unicorns, and other fantasy creatures should be submitted to Arts/Genres/Science_Fiction_and_Fantasy/Themes/Fantasy_Races_and_Creatures/

This category is called "historical revisionism" to distinguish it from "alternate histories", which are "what if" scenarios acknowledged by their authors to be fictional.

E-zines and websites for published magazines devoted to multiple aspects of alternative science, anomalous phenomena, etc.
About the theories of Wilhelm Reich, who posited the existence of a "life force" called orgone energy, and their application. The study of orgone energy is also referred to as "radionics" or "orgonomy."
Orgone energy and Radionics ONLY should go here.
