Looking at the whole spectrum of Paranormal Studies, in the major three catagories; The first question is what is Ghosts/Hauntings, Psychic Phenomena, and UFO/Aliens/ETs.

What purpose does it serve? is my second question. More particularly, what can we learn and apply?

These are the questions the paranormal community should be looking for the answers to and moving beyond the "proving to the skeptic".

What can "They" teach us?

Well that's an easy question. They can teach us about how we die. Where we go when we die. The aliens can teach us technology, the ghosts with death, the cyptids can teach us about animals in our world, ancient civilizations can link UFO's and technology and give us clues. As for every other paranormal thing, they can all give us clues on other topics and slowly let us understand the relation between certian paranormal beings or subjects. Basically knowledge beyong our conprehension

Personally I think that most of the more reputable people in the paranormal community are the biggest skeptics in the world. Using the scientific process one has a theory and then trys to prove it wrong, not right. With that in mind it's not hard to figure out why paranormal researchers focus on proving and disproving the subjects:

Paranormal subjects are controversial, they are generally unproven, so instead of blind belief researchers seek to apply a label of true or untrue to a given theory or phenomena. Then once a an idea is disproven it can be dropped or if it's proven it can be picked up by mainstream researchers with their big government and industry subsidized research budgets. The service that the paranormal community provides is the searching, and skepticism that is needed to discover what is really out there.

The search is the study.
