I'm going to start this article off with a confession, and a revelation as well (just so you know where I'm coming from).
I have absolutely NO doubt that there are many amazing psychic mediums working today, who can give you honest, insightful access to your loved ones who have crossed over to the other side.
I've not only had many, many personal experiences that has proved this to me beyond the shadow of a doubt, I have many close friends who are professional mediums, who can do exactly that.
That's the "revelation" if you will.
The confession is THIS:
Some mediums cheat. As a matter of fact, I've had FAR more bad readings in my life, than good ones. The bad ones are rarely due to cheating, rather...they are due to the medium NOT being all that good! Read more

John Titor popped up in the late 1990s, claiming to be from the future, and made some bold predictions about our future in this century. Who was he really, and what happened to him?
What if someone from the future popped up in our timeline and started answering questions from people on internet message boards? That's exactly what John Titor did in the late 1990s. Claiming he was sent from the future on a mission to retrieve an antique computer, he talked with thousands of people online and told stories of futuristic life in 2036. Many of his tales warned of imminent disaster for the world, but he said he couldn't help.
As abruptly as he appeared, Titor vanished in 2001. Did he finish his mission? Who - or what - is behind the legend of John Titor? Read more

Is the Shroud of Turin the burial cloth of Jesus? A series of experiments conducted by Italian researchers suggest that the Shroud of Turin is probably not a medieval forgery.
A series of experiments conducted by Italian researchers indicate the Shroud of Turin is likely authentic, but the team has not yet reached a definite conclusion.
Decades of research on Jesus' proposed burial cloth have revealed an array of conflicting ideas surrounding the shroud's authenticity. However, researchers from Italy's National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development believe their findings undermine previous theories that the shroud was faked in the medieval period, the Telegraph reports. The new claim seems to be stirring controversy again, as many point to previous research to the contrary.
Last year scientists were able to replicate marks on the cloth using highly advanced ultraviolet techniques that weren't available 2,000 years ago -- or during the medieval times, for that matter. Read more

If aliens have visited the earth, they surely would have left artifacts behind. If they have, what sort of articfacts would they have left, and how do we find them?
For many people, the very idea of needing to search for alien artifacts is ludicrous. After all, alien spacecraft can be seen in the skies of Earth every day of the week, and virtually every archaeological specimen older that three thousand years was fabricated, if not by extraterrestrials, then by dim-witted humans under the guidance of extraterrestrials. So for people who think along those lines, there's nothing to search for: the Earth is already overflowing with alien artifacts. But scientists (who are part of the Conspiracy) aren't allowed to admit that -- they have to look further afield. I've just been reading three fascinating articles on the subject at arXiv.org: Read more

Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar was executed in the northern province of Jawf for “practising witchcraft and sorcery,” the Interior Ministry said in a statement Monday. Newsflash: if she was caught, convicted, and executed for practicing witchcraft and sorcery, she wasn't a witch or sorcerer, or at least not a very good one.
A Saudi woman was beheaded Monday after being convicted of practising sorcery, which is banned in the ultra-conservative kingdom, the Interior Ministry said.
Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar was executed in the northern province of Jawf for “practising witchcraft and sorcery,” the ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency. Read more

A leaking roof in an Ethiopian chapel may lead to the Ark of the Covenant being revealed to the world.
A very British problem of a leaky church roof could be about to give the world the chance to glimpse the legendary Ark of the Covenant.
That's because the claimed home of the iconic relic - a small chapel in Ethiopia - has sprung a leak and so the Ark could now be on the move.
The Ark - which The Bible says holds God's Ten Commandments given to Moses on Mount Sinai - is said to have been kept in Aksum, in the Chapel of the Tablet, adjacent to St Mary of Zion Church, since the 1960s. Read more

From Mark Twain to Tupac Shakur, read about thirteen celebrities may be ghosts... or still alive.
Dead or Alive?
William Shakespeare called death, "the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns." Is the veil between this world and the next one porous enough to allow the spirits of the beloved dead to walk the earth once again?
Perhaps some of the world's most famous people that have seemingly "reappeared" are not ghosts, but in fact merely faked their demises and lived long after "death." Are these lucky 13 true emissaries from beyond? Or are they merely designers of a well-planned hoax? Read more

Finally, scientists are beginning to look at paranormal experiences, including the Ganzfield Effect, a method of inducing hallucinations without drugs.
The cognitive science journal Cortex has just released a special issue on the neuropsychology of paranormal experiences and belief, and contains a fantastic article on hallucinations induced by the Ganzfeld procedure.
The Ganzfeld procedure exposes the participant to ‘unstructured’ sensations usually by placing half ping-pong balls over the eyes so they can only see diffuse white light and by playing white noise through headphones.
It is probably best known for its uses in parapsychology experiments, but it is also used to induce hallucinations and sensory distortions which are much more likely to occur in the absence of clearly defined sensory experiences. Read more

The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage is one of the best-known, but seldom-used magical grimoires. The book describes an elaborate ritual whose purpose is to obtain the "knowledge and conversation" of the magician's "Holy Guardian Angel." During the period of the work, which lasts six months, the magician must pray daily before sunrise and again at sunset. Also, during this preparatory phase, there are many restrictions: chastity must be observed, alcoholic beverages refused, and the magician must conduct his business with scrupulous fairness. After the preparatory phase has been successfully completed, the magician's guardian angel will appear to reveal to the magician magical secrets.
