The Dangerous Deception behind Paranormal Phenomena Today
Until recent years, the Bible stood as the spiritual benchmark for Western belief and behavior. Zombies, vampires, and other dark creatures were reserved for far-flung horror stories. Ghosts, hauntings, UFO sightings, and alien abductions were rare tales from the fringes. No more. The doors to paranormal spiritual p

Tales of UFOs, Bigfoot, and journeys to another universe to meet ascended masters and beings from other planets in distant universes or even alternate planes of existence. Are they just the vivid imaginations of science fiction developed from misguided individuals? Are they real life experiences albeit hard to comprehend to the average individual? Or are they the product of spiritual forces bent on warping and twisting minds in an effort to lead humanity down a path of mental, physical, and ...more

The author's premise is "that a diabolical conspiracy is afoot; a plot to lead human hearts and souls eternally astray". He defines this paranormal conspiracy as "the diabolical plot to overthrow the Judeo-Christian worldview and plunge the world into darkness and chaos not unlike that of the cinematic zombie apocalypse" (The description of this book was misleading. It's not actually about paranormal stories in "today's pop culture" as most of the events in the books are from the 20th century ...more

One Minute Book Review-The Paranormal Conspiracy by Timothy Dailey

The Summary:

Dr. Dailey gives us a new look at the possible source of paranormal phenomena in our world.

What I liked:

I got this book on a whim, it just sounded interesting. But when I learned more about Dailey, I started worrying, and wondering exactly what I had gotten myself into. I don’t think it’s any secret

I received this book through the librarything.com early review giveaway. I found this book to be confusing in some parts. To me it kept going back and forth. It didn't explain everything that was in the summary.

The book was interesting but really did not explain some things fully....Very good explanations of the spiritual connection......I read an advanced copy, maybe the edited edition will explain further.

As a kid I watched every episode of the X-Files. Who didn’t watch that show? They made it cool to believe in UFOs and the extraterrestrial. And there was a time in my life when I really believed I saw a UFO. I later came to realize, and actually confirm, that what I saw were the lights shining from a local grocery store upon the nights sky. As a kid I really wanted to believe UFOs and aliens were real. While I was pretty skeptical about Bigfoot, I believed the Loch Ness Monster was probably ...more

What a confounding book. On the one hand, it's meticulously researched and engagingly written, full of sad and mysterious stories about those who have succumbed to the machinations of the "Paranormal Conspiracy." On the other, the author suggests not scientific explanations for these accounts, but declares that parallel dimensions of demonic entities are responsible for the growing popularity of paranormal pop culture over the last few centuries. So it's not aliens, or Bigfoot, or spirits we ...more

The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth about Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings
By Timothy Dailey

As a Christian I see our world being obsessed and overrun with the occult and paranormal. It is seen in music, television shows, books, and even children’s cartoons. The sad part is how widely accepted it is by even those who profess to know Christ. Because the supernatural seems to have no other explanation, ridiculous and impossible stories are believed. I know these things are but a smokescreen t

From familiar names to unfamiliar names. Whether we are been told of the life of Carlos Castaneda or talking about the Bili Ape. We get accounts that the author feels ties in more to the evil spirit and demon realm; or that brings in the old argument of Patterson - Gimlin or what the figures are for life on other planets to come here.

If hearing about an abduction that stops because the name of Jesus is said (I am sure I have hear the first account in the 90's), or the mystery of Cicada 3301, or

3/5 stars

Let me start by saying that I am a fan of the paranormal. I am also a Christian. So I don't take the paranormal very seriously. It's just fun to think about. Like, I love Harry Potter, but I know that there's no such thing as wizards and sadly magic is not real.

The book starts out a bit preachy, which almost scared me off. I was afraid the whole book would be about how fake it all

"The Paranormal Conspiracy" sells itself as a book about teenage vampires, UFO sightings, alien invasions, ghost stories, the zombie apocalypse and how Christians should respond to the paranormal in pop culture. Instead, it explores at length the cases of explorer Percy Fawcett, who disappeared while searching for the lost city of Z in the 1920s; Joe Fisher, who died mysteriously after renouncing his belief in reincarnation in a 1991 expose; and Cicada 3301's Internet puzzle. It's all over the ...more

I was raised in a Christian family and I have strong Christian values and morals. I also believe in Ghosts and have had personal paranormal experiences. This is primarily why I was eager to read this book. Sadly all this book has is claims about a dark conspiracy against Christians masquerading as the paranormal. The blurb is not accurate for what is inside the cover. I seriously believe this is aimed at making money by grabbing the attention of those of us who enjoy watching shows with zombies, ...more

"The Bible doesn’t have much to say about demons. Or angels. Or really any manner of supernatural beings aside from the Lord Himself. Which in no way stops our contemporary culture from being fascinated with the idea that there is a world just out of sight that has a direct impact on our daily lives. Popular fiction focusing on this world of both the Christian and secular variety has become fairly mainstream. And so Timothy Dailey’s The Paranormal Conspiracy is timely and relevant. That it is we ...more

We live in a world where vampires, zombies, and paranormal creatures are commonplace topics in pop culture. In the book The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth about Ghosts, Aliens, and Mysterious Beings, Timothy Dailey, PhD, asks how Christians should respond to a culture inundated with the paranormal. This is the first book I have read on this subject, and it is a very interesting examination of how a Christian’s saturation in the paranormal affects his spiritual connection to God. I enjoyed ...more

I was a little disappointed in this book. I would have rather Dailey looked at many events rather than concentrating on just a few. The in depth stories of a few people do bring a human element to the book but does limit the impact so much. He does conclude that the phenomenon has occult origins. Also, while he does assure readers that God is greater than the malevolent forces, he gives no strategy for Christians.

I received this novel through the Goodreads giveaway! I found Timothy Dailey to be a knowledgeable source who uses valid references; however some of Dailey's theories stumped me. Overall an interesting read that I enjoyed.

The Paranormal Conspiracy is an interesting and yet comical read. It tells of different conspiracies involving, ghosts, Bigfoot, alien encounters and abductions, etc. I am not sure what to think of the conspiracies and the stories surrounding them but I did find them entertaining.

After finishing the book I decided that it was very confusing in parts. The concept is great, I just could not focus long enough on the book to really get into it. It does make you think about things spiritually, but I just was not too impressed.
