Why, in the paranormal world, is there a lack of trust in regards science?

Is it simply that science doesn't support the notion of the paranormal and so people who "believe" need to come up with various bits of pseudo-science to support their belief system or is there something else?

I think it's more to do with the uber skeptics using science as a weapon against the paranormal than actual science. They are quite vocal in their 'attacks' and this is what most paranormal investigators come into contact with. There is an increasing amount of actual scientists looking seriously into many aspect of the paranormal, and there had been many legitimate studies in the past that had positive results. These are conveniently ignored by the cynics. For more info on this kind of thing you should read the book 'Randi's Prize'.
