Cat People, Strippers, and Telekinesis: Tales from Alien Abductees

New York photographer Steven Hirsch tried to put a human face to alien abductees by meeting, interviewing, and photographing people who claim close contact with extraterrestrials.
Alien abductions make for a good sci-fi plot devices, but it's easy to forget that we walk among people -- in the real world -- who claim to have been visited, beamed up and probed by little gray men.

 New York photographer Steven Hirsch, 63, has met many of these people face to face. He visited this year's International UFO Conference to meet, photograph and interview people who avow close contact with extraterrestrials. Read more

New Jersey Couple Sues over Haunted House

A New Jersey couple is suing their landlord alleging that the house he rented them is haunted. I wonder how they plan to prove their claim in court.
This New Jersey couple is suing their landlord alleging that their landlord rented them a house that is very haunted. Michele Callan and Josue Chinchilla are suing over their $2,250. They left the home on March 11, 2012 claiming they were in “in mortal danger” if they returned. The owner of the house Dr. Richard Lopez who is an orthodontist is counter suing claiming that the house is not haunted and that his tenants are just trying to get out of their monthly rental payments and lease.

 “Frankly, there is something else going on,” Lopez’s lawyer David Semanchik told the Asbury Park Press. “She is a single mom, she has this fiance living with her. I think she is in over her head and she can’t afford the rent." Read more

Hunting Bigfoot in Florida

Amanda Petrusich describes her Bigfoot hunting expedition in the Florida Panhandle with the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization.
A Bigfoot's howl is multidimensional: a deep and undulating whoop that starts low and ends in a high, feral squeal or resolves completely, like a siren. The first time I unleashed one, while crouching on a bluff overlooking the eastern bank of the Apalachicola River, Matt Moneymaker — who, moments earlier, had loosed a robust, commanding shriek that echoed cleanly through the valley — responded with a hearty guffaw.

“I have a cold,” I mumbled by way of an excuse. It was nearly 2 a.m., and we were huddled in the dark in Torreya State Park near Bristol, on the Florida Panhandle. My craggy, toadlike holler did not yield a response. Read more

Israeli Scientists Search for Gateway to Hell

Israeli scientists are exploring Twins Cave, which ancient people may have believed was a portal to the underworld.
It's an ancient legend: Located in scattered areas of Earth are openings, doorways, gates, if you will, to some unseen underworld, also variously referred to as hell, Hades and Dante's Inferno.

Researchers exploring the famous Twins Cave outside of Jerusalem have uncovered evidence of some pagan rituals, dating back to the Roman Empire, that suggest people may have believed the cave was a portal to this underworld.

Bar-Ilan University archaeologists found 42 clay lamps -- dating to the late Roman period -- in a 70-foot-long vertical shaft inside the cave. It's speculated that the lamps may have been used in ancient rituals between the 2nd and 4th century C.E., to supposedly guide the Greek goddess Demeter into Hades to search for her missing daughter.

Did the Mayans Have Contact with ETs?

A documentary film Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond will show evidence of alien contact in ancient Mexico.
The ancient Mayans had contact with alien visitors who left behind evidence of their existence, according to a new Mexican documentary.

Sundance winner Juan Carlos Rulfo's Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond is currently in production for release next year to coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar, reports the Wrap.

Producer Raul Julia-Levy said the documentary-makers were working in cooperation with the Mexican government for what he said was "the good of mankind". He said the order to collaborate had come directly from the country's president, Álvaro Colom Caballeros.

"Mexico will release codices, artefacts and significant documents with evidence of Mayan and extraterrestrial contact, and all of their information will be corroborated by archaeologists," he said. "The Mexican government is not making this statement on their own – everything we say, we're going to back it up." Read more

The Big Muddy Monster

The Big Muddy Monster aka Murphysboro Mud Monster is a Bigfoot-like creature from the southern part of Illinois.
Around midnight on June 25, 1973, a young couple was parked by a desolate riverside for a romantic interlude when they came face to face with a huge, wet, hairy, mud-slathered monstrosity with a penchant for disturbing teenage lovers.

During two harrowing weeks in the summer of 1973, the rural town of Murphysboro, Illinois became the epicenter of a terrifying series of encounters with a huge, albino beast, which would come to be known as the “Murphysboro Mud Monster” or the “Big Muddy Monster.” Read more

After Almost 40 Years Ex-Military Pilot Reveals Close UFO Encounter

 After almost 40 years, ex-military pilot Larry Jividen reveals a close UFO encounter he had near Pensacola, Florida.
On the night of Feb. 6, 1975, Marine Reserve Squadron Capt. Larry Jividen was piloting a T-39D Sabreliner (see image above) combat trainer and utility aircraft with five Naval officer pilots on board for a special training flight. He didn't know the evening would evolve into a game of "tag" with an unidentified flying object.

Jividen hasn't spoken about that experience from nearly 40 years ago -- until now.

The nine-year Marine Corps officer -- and later commercial airline pilot -- had taken off at twilight for a two-hour roundtrip that began and ended at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla. Read more
