UFOs: An Alternative Theory

If UFOs exist, what are they are where do they come from? Many people assume that they are extraterrestrial, but could they actually be from earth?
UFO’s have been sighted all around the world. Witnesses describe them as being far beyond current technologies developed by mankind and therefore must be the stellar vehicles developed by intelligent beings from a planet outside our own solar system.

But what are alternative theories not commonly discussed in the news?

This thought provoking question sent me on a mission to discover alternative theories that are backed by extensive documentation and evidence. It seems I was lead backwards in time to an ancient civilization on earth called Atlantis – a taboo subject according to modern scholars, however it had to be considered at some point in my studies.

Will Earthbound Comet Fulfill 2012 Prophecy?

The year 2012 is rapidly approaching, and so is our impending doom, according to many would-be soothsayers. Will the earthbound comet Elenin fulfill the 2912 prophecy?
It's nearly 300 million miles away and barreling toward us. The intruder from deep space, called called comet Elenin, crosses Earth's orbit on its inbound leg and again on its outbound swing around the sun later this year.

Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin discovered the innocuous little comet on Dec. 10, 2010, at International Scientific Optical Network's robotic observatory near Mayhill, New Mexico.

Presently the comet is a faint smudge of light in deep sky exposures. By late August comet Elenin should be visible to the naked eye as a dim "fuzzy star" with a tail. Over a few weeks the visitor will speed across the spring constellation Virgo and toward Leo on its outbound leg. Read more

The Tatzelwurm Lives!

Do recent reports of mystery lizards herald the return of the legendary tatzelwurm to its traditional alpine haunts?
Although the tatzelwurm – or clawed serpent – is the best-known Central European cryptid (see FT208:46–49), it tends to be dismissed as a thing of the past. However, sightings of the creature, or at least of large and unusual reptiles, continue to this very day. Because the tatzelwurm (with its regional names – stollenwurm in Switzerland, bergstutzen in Austria, or basilisco in Italy) is now generally regarded as a “mythical beast”, sightings tend to be reported as escaped crocodiles or “dinosaurs”. Yet they happen in the same regions as the traditional tatzelwurm reports, and are merely updated to fit current tastes.

So, when a boy observed something that once would have been called a tatzelwurm in April 2007 in Upper Austria, where tatzelwurms were seen repeatedly in the 19th century, it was reported as an escaped exotic pet: “A Lizard 50cm long. Unknown reptile in the Enns Valley. The observation, by a 12-year-old boy, has caused quite a stir. He claims to have seen a brown lizard, 50cm long, on the bank of the Enns River near Ternberg.” Read more

God's Wife Edited Out of the Bible - Almost

Like the gods of many religions, the Biblical god Yahweh had a wife. The fertility goddess Asherah was worshiped alongside Yahweh in his temple in Israel. However, Asherah is unknown except to a few scholars because she was edited out of the Bible - almost.
God had a wife, Asherah, whom the Book of Kings suggests was worshiped alongside Yahweh in his temple in Israel, according to an Oxford scholar.

In 1967, Raphael Patai was the first historian to mention that the ancient Israelites worshiped both Yahweh and Asherah. The theory has gained new prominence due to the research of Francesca Stavrakopoulou, who began her work at Oxford and is now a senior lecturer in the department of Theology and Religion at the University of Exeter.

Information presented in Stavrakopoulou's books, lectures and journal papers has become the basis of a three-part documentary series, now airing in Europe, where she discusses the Yahweh-Asherah connection. Read more

The 6 Types of Hauntings

Veteran ghost researcher Paul Dale Roberts explains the six types of haunting activity: residual hauntings, poltergeists, demon activity, intelligent hauntings, shadow people, and doppelganger hauntings.
Residual Haunting Activity:

Residual haunting activity can occur when something traumatic/stressful occurs, such as a murder or a rape. Negative energy is literally blasted into the atmosphere, causing the atmosphere to imprint or record the events. Like a recording tape, it will play the events over and over again. The entities involved in this residual haunting activity are unaware of their surroundings. This is not an intelligent haunting, there is no interaction between you and the entity.

Residual haunting activity can also be caused by positive energy blasted into the atmosphere. Many times you have heard ghost stories, where people can hear the sounds of a party. They hear music, singing, dancing, laughter and when they enter the room where they hear the party, there is no one there. Residual haunting activity can be the specters of living Read more

Lough Dubh Monster: The Irish Hogzilla?

Lough Dubh or Black’s Lake was the scene of a possible monster sighting in the early 1960’s. Dale A. Drinnon wonders if the Lough Dubh Monster is the Irish Hogzilla.
Lough Dubh Monster

After some wrangling over the point and in response to a anonymous posting at one of Karl Shuker's blog postings (suggesting a hippopotamus as a possible culprit), the easiest and most economic solution would seem to be that it was a feral boar hog, probably mixed feral domestic and wild boar hog. For one thing, whenever there is mention of a white or ivory horn on the snout it means a tusk, since ivory is what teeth are made out of and horns are made out of something else. This point turns up also in discussions of the "Congo Dragons" said to have "Ivory horns" which must also be regarded as references to tusks. The anonymous commentator suggested that if it was only one tusk that was seen instead of a horn, then it could have been a hippopotamus as well as a rhinoceros. And I replied then that a hog would be closely related to a hippo and more likely to turn up in Ireland. It could have been a feral pig wallowing on the mudbank that took the bait when a tasty morsel presented itself. Swine are also opportunistic omnivores which none of the other candidates would be. None of the other candidates would have taken the bait. Read more

Did a German Sub Make to Our Hollow Earth?

A letter from Karl Unger, a German crewman from the U-209 submarine, claims that the vessel made it to the hollow earth soon after World War II, says Rodney M. Cliff.
I first learned about German U Boats attempting to reach our hollow earth from a German living in Canada. The book I ordered was from Samisdat Publishers, Ltd, owned and operated by Ernst Zundel. He wrote a book about Hitler sending an expedition to Antarctica. I ordered his book. It was titled, Secret Nazi Polar Expeditions, published in 1978. It related how the Germans had taken a ship with a small airplane on it that they launched from their ship after reaching the ice near Antarctica. It flew over the ice to Antarctica and then back to the ship. But the book didn't say anything about the hollow earth.

Then in 2006 I received an email from Dianne Robbins, author of several books she has channeled from a person she says is Mikos that lives in the hollow earth.

The person Dianne emailed me about was Joe Watson of Talkeetna, Alaska, who had just contacted her saying that he had a copy of a letter written in the German language from a German submarine crewman named Karl Unger, that made it to our hollow earth soon after World War II. The submarine name was U-209 with Captain Heinrich Brodda.

Joe's original email to Diane was, Read more

Shambala: Myth or Real Location?

Jason Jeffrey explores the mystery of Shamblaa: Is it a myth or a real location?
I believe the idea of Shambhala has not yet come to full flower, but that when it does it will have enormous power to reshape civilisation. It is the sign of the future. The search for a new unifying principle that our civilisation must now undertake will, I am convinced, lead it to this source of higher energies, and Shambhala will become the great icon of the new millennium.
– Victoria LePage, Shambhala

For thousands of years rumours and reports have circulated that somewhere beyond Tibet, among the icy peaks and secluded valleys of Eurasia, there lies an inaccessible paradise, a place of universal wisdom and ineffable peace called Shambhala – although it is also known by other names.

James Hilton wrote about it in the 1933 book Lost Horizon, Hollywood portrayed it in the 1960s film ‘Shangri-la’, and recent films such as ‘Kundun’, ‘Little Buddha’ and ‘Seven Years in Tibet’ allude to the magical utopia. Even author James Redfield, noted for his New Age best seller The Celestine Prophecy, has written a book called The Secret of Shambhala: In Search of the Eleventh Insight Read more

17th Century Witch Chronicles Put Online

A 17th century notebook documenting witch trials has been posted online and is free to read.
A 350-year-old notebook which documents the trials of women convicted of witchcraft in England during the 17th century has been published online.

The notebook written by Nehemiah Wallington, an English Puritan, recounts the fate of women accused of having relationships with the devil at a time when England was embroiled in a bitter civil war.

The document reveals the details of a witchcraft trial held in Chelmsford in July 1645, when more than a hundred suspected witches were serving time in Essex and Suffolk according to his account.

"Divers (many) of them voluntarily and without any forcing or compulsion freely declare that they have made a covenant with the Devill," he wrote.

"Som Christians have been killed by their meanes," he added.

Of the 30 women on trial in Chelmsford, 14 were hanged. Read more

The Most Shocking UFO Sightings - and Hoaxes

Recently released British UFO files reveal some shocking sightings - and hoaxes - and say that Ministry of Defence officials did not consider author Philip Corso a reliable source of information.
Among many other shocking disclosures, a series of 8,500 documents released by the British National Archives have revealed that many Brits feared a devastating alien invasion back in 1967.

As Reuters is reporting, the 35 previously classified files -- available online -- mainly cover the period from 1997 to 2005. Included are photographs, sketches and detailed accounts of flying saucer sightings, along with correspondence between the U.K. Ministry of Defense and witnesses. Read more

Bigfoot's Face: First Full Facial Footage of Bigfoot

Legendary cryptozoologist Loren Coleman is hopeful that the first full facial footage of Bigfoot could be a breakthrough in cryptozoology - if it isn't another hoax.
This could be the most exciting news in years.

The Erickson Project could hold the key to more understandings about the Bigfoot question than has come along in decades.

Okay, that being said, let’s, nevertheless, list some cautionary notes.

What you are about to read could be hype to promote and sell a new film.

It could be an experiment in eyewitness/general public gullibility.

This news could be someone’s cruel idea of punking, pranking, and faking out those who wish to “believe” without thinking.

Or it could actually be a bit of a breakthrough in hominology, cryptozoology, and Bigfoot studies, and thus anthropology and zoology. Read more

6 Signs That You Might Be Psychic

If you've always suspected that you have extrasensory perception, Stephen Wagner lists six signs that you indeed might be psychic.
Those who have made a lifetime of the study of psychic phenomena suspect that most, if not all of us are psychic to one degree or another. I'm sure most of us can point to events in our lives that indicate instances of telepathy (communication of thoughts) or precognition (knowing what is going to happen). Perhaps it's only happened once or a few times.

Perhaps, however, it happens to you quite frequently. Can you then be considered truly, strongly psychic? Here are six signs to look for. Read more
