Even UFOs Are Following Trump

Despite his stance on illegal aliens, UFOs were spotted following Donald Trump.
Take me to your leader.

That's what you hear in classic sci-fi  movies when the little green men land. But those words are also apropos in this election season.  When the 2016 presidential race ends, what leader will those ETs be taken to? Read more

Gigantic Ancient Monolith Discovered off Sicily Is 10,000 Years Old AT LEAST

More of the hidden history of the human race has been revealed. Researchers have discovered a gigantic monolith off Sicily that is 10,000 years old - at least.
During a high-resolution mapping of the seafloor surrounding Sicily, researchers discovered an ancient treasure: a stone monolith spanning 39 feet (12 meters), resting on the bottom of the Mediterranean.

Stunned, the researchers sent down divers with cameras and video recorders to get a closer look at the monolith, which had broken into two parts. They dove 131 feet (40 m) underwater in an area called the Pantelleria Vecchia Bank, located about 37 miles (60 kilometers) south of Sicily. Read more

The Black Man at the Crossroads

Blues legend Robert Johnson was supposed to have made a deal with the devil to obtain his musical talent.  Hoodoo has a tradition of crossroads spirits, but what exactly are these entities?
Note: Makes sure to read the section titled "controversy" at the end of this blog post.

In Hoodoo lore, The Black Man At The Crossroads is a survival of an African Trickster Spirit. Similar entities can still be found in the living religions of Voodou, Santeria, Lukumi, Candomble, IFA, and the like. Since Hoodoo is not a religion, The Black Man is not worshipped, but he is to be highly respected. Because of his trickster nature, the Black Man is often called, 'The Devil', but such title is most definitely not one that is synonymous with the Biblical Satan. Instead, the term, 'The Devil' is a reference to the trickster nature of the entity. Similar African tricksters associated with the crossroads have also been referred to as 'The Devil'. Read more

Fairy Circles Continue to Mystify

Fairy circles continue to mystify science. If fairies don't make them, what does?
A 2,000-kilometer strip of desert stretching across Namibia is pockmarked with mysterious “fairy circles.” From Angola to South Africa, millions of these bare patches of dirt (which can be seen on Google Earth if you know where to look) dot the landscape, each some five to 10 meters across. And they are not static; they grow and shrink and disappear and reappear. Read more

Hoodoo Papers and Petitions

The written word can have magical power. Here is how hoodoo practitioners use papers and petitions.
In the Hoodoo tradition, one is typically advised to write one's petition on brown paper torn, usually from a grocery type sack, on all four sides by hand. This is thought to make the paper pure. However, there are instances where the practitioner is allowed to cut the paper with a pair of scissors. The use of scissors is seen as symbolic of using weapons such as swords, knives, and daggers against one's enemies. Some situations in which you would cut your petition paper with scissors can include when driving two people apart, or working enemy tricks. Read more
