Science Channel’s top rated show “The Unexplained Files,” will air a pilot centered around California’s respected investigators, the American Paranormal Research Association (APRA), on October 14 at 10pm.
American Paranormal Research Association (APRA), a scientific paranormal research organization specializing in research and documentation of haunted historical locations, has teamed up with world renowned scientist, Dr. Harry Kloor, PhD to document and classify paranormal phenomena. According to the council of graduate schools, the national research council and US department of education, Dr. Kloor is the only person to earn two PhDs simultaneously in any discipline. He holds PhDs in Physics and in Chemistry.
“The Unexplained Files” is an unabashed telling of some of the world’s best and most baffling true stories. The show uncovers profound and disturbing mysteries with smart investigative journalism and creative style that launches viewers into an exploration of the unknown.
What will happen when a world renowned scientist and a team of paranormal researchers go head to head with the unexplainable?
About the pairing, APRA founder Brandon Alvis noted, “Dr. Kloor brings a whole new dimension to our research into ghosts and hauntings. This is the first time a scientist of Dr. Kloor’s caliber has teamed up with a paranormal research organization. APRA has always been scientific in principle, with the assistance of Dr. Kloor and cutting edge technology we will take paranormal research to the next level. We are very excited to work with such a respected scientist and can’t wait to share our findings with the public and scientific community on “The Unexplained Files.””
Regarding joining forces with APRA, Dr. Kloor commented, “The universe is constantly amazing us with its magnificence. We discover new phenomena at all scales of existence from the subatomic world to galactic clusters. As a scientist I do not believe in the paranormal, because I don’t think it is something to believe in, but instead something to be explored, examined, and catalogued. For thousands of years we have encountered so called paranormal phenomena. Certainly much of it is our imagination and keyed to our pattern recognition-danger response system. But not all such events can be explained away. Is it really paranormal, or just odd or unusual science events masking themselves as paranormal? The only way to determine this is via scientific investigations that follow strict scientific methods. I decided to work with APRA because they too want to more than believe, they want to know, and they embrace the scientific method. They don’t adhere to the idea that science will “interfere or scare away” the phenomena, but think that hard science, if applied appropriately, could capture this phenomena. They are also open to the fact that many claims of paranormal have ordinary explanations. Like me, they don’t just want to believe, they want to know the truth.”
