In the world of conspiracy theories, there are many recurring themes that are spun in different ways, depending on the worldview of the believer. A political event or natural disaster can be interpreted and explained differently, depending on the religious and political persuasion of the theorist, and be blamed on the Freemasons, Zionists, CIA, Satan, Iblis, or shape-changing Alpha Draconian reptiles.
Sometimes, this means that ostensibly prosaic conspiracy theories transform from sinister political skulduggery into wild supernatural intrigues. Read more

If the universe is so full of intelligent life, why haven't we found any? Because all the aliens are extinct, a new study says.
The number of stars in the universe is uncountable. The number of planets potentially even higher. Earth is just one small, pale blue dot orbiting a very average star. The probability that life is abundant in the universe should be high, yet we have located no undeniable signs of life beyond Earth. Read more

It’s possible that a “mirror universe” exists where time moves backwards, say scientists.
Although we experience time in one direction—we all get older, we have records of the past but not the future—there’s nothing in the laws of physics that insists time must move forward.
In trying to solve the puzzle of why time moves in a certain direction, many physicists have settled on entropy, the level of molecular disorder in a system, which continually increases. But two separate groups of prominent physicists are working on models that examine the initial conditions that might have created the arrow of time, and both seem to show time moving in two different directions.

UFO investigators have been demanding the release by governments across the globe of ALL confidential files they hold relating to UFO and extraterrestrial sightings.
It is called the disclosure movement and UFO conspiracists insist there is a worldwide cover-up to prevent the 'truth' that aliens have previously landed from getting out.

A British ghost hunter captured an eerie sight outside one of Britain's most haunted buildings.
According to the Pew Research Center, 18 percent of all Americans believe they have seen a ghost.
But the other 82 percent of us? Well, even if you’ve never seen a ghost, that doesn’t mean you don’t believe that they exist.
Personally, I was always an avowed skeptic until I stumbled upon a truly chilling video that appears to show a spectral figure trailing behind two small boys. Read more

Debra Diamond examines the near-death experience from the scientific point of view.
What’s a near-death experience? A delusion? A neurochemical imbalance? The aftermath of anesthesia on a dying brain?
Raymond Moody coined the term “near-death experience” in his groundbreaking book Life After Life, in which he outlined nine elements of the experience, including a life review, an outof-body experience, encounters with deceased loved ones and a decision to return to one’s body. Bruce Greyson, a professor at the University of Virginia, expanded the list to encompass 16 elements, including a sudden insight, experiencing scenes from the future and coming to a point of no return.
According to most NDE literature, common elements include an out-of-body experience, a feeling of peace with the universe and a connection with a brilliant white light. Read more

Dr. Brian D. Parsons reveals his list of the top ten paranormal news stories of 2015.
I bring you my annual list of the top stories of the paranormal world. There is no way for me to say this is the definitive way these stories should be listed and arguments for the arrangement could be made to put any one of the top ten at number 1, but this list is essentially my opinion on the matter based on a year with few groundbreaking or long lasting viral stories. I have been doing this list since the end of the 2009 season of the Paranormal News Insider.
How is this list assembled? Read more
