It was perhaps the most bizarre and confusing opening ceremony in history. Even Swiss citizens were scratching their heads after enduring what some journalists called an “insane” performance (1).
It was the June 1, 2016 opening ceremony of the Gotthard Base Tunnel project that was 17 years in the making at a cost £8.5bn. The tunnel is 57km long and cuts through the Swiss Alps connecting Switzerland to Germany. Traveling at 155mph, the trains cut the travel time by an hour. It is a marvelous engineering feat, but the strange ceremony has greatly overshadowed that accomplishment.
The Internet is blazing with accusations that the ceremony was a satanic celebration of creating a passageway for the devil to emerge into the world.
The devil was the prominent figure in the ceremony, based on an old tale about the mountain range and how the villagers outsmarted the devil. BBC explained the ceremony as “celebrating Alpine culture and history”. However, the ceremony showed a freed Satan that conquered the world and this upset many Christians (2). Read more

There are two major problems with paranormal "skeptics." First, they don't actually know much of anything about the topics they attempt to debunk. This leads to the second problem: they regard themselves as brilliant and knowledgeable, and anyone with opposing views and experiences as a retarded mouth-breather. (Some also lie outright, but that's more of a personal character flaw.)
Although the average person may not be aware of the points Neel V. Patel brings up, ghost hunters certainly are. They openly discuss them and factor them into their investigations.
The all new reboot of Ghostbusters may have just breathed new life into an old franchise, and that success will probably crossover and generate renewed interest into the old art of ghost hunting. (I say art because it’s certainly not science.) Read more

Dark occurrences scared North Wales communities for over two decades, leading to police and church leader warnings.
Witches are usually associated with images of old hags, broomsticks and unfortunate women being dunked in ponds during centuries gone by.
However, in more enlightned, modern times witchcraft is broadly defined as anybody who practices magic, which can be used for good such as the Wicca movement.
But during the last few decades dark occurrences in communities across North Wales raised concerns that witchcraft has been used to satisfy more sinister goals. Read more

The end of the world has been predicted many times, so a global apocalypse on July 29, is unlikely. On the other hand, even the boy who cried wolf was right in the end.
Do you want the good news or the bad news? OK, the good news is that you won’t have to buy Christmas presents for everyone.
But the bad news is that the entire world is going to be destroyed in a fortnight’s time (July 29) – with cities collapsing as the Earth’s magnetic poles reverse.
(For some reason, nutty conspiracy theorists are OBSESSED with the idea of the Earth’s poles reversing). Read more
