Top Psychics Give Predictions for 2014

What's going to happen in the coming year? Top psychics give predictions for 2014.
The U-Predict Blogtalk radio show is not like other tarot shows on the Internet. We do not read for callers, we read for society in general. Some listeners may not enjoy the fact that some weeks we end up talking about politics. However, the political discussions are a part of the show because politics at every level (family, office, and government) affect people’s lives on a daily basis. Because of the dysfunction currently in Washington DC, there was no way that you could have a prediction show for next year without politics being a large part of it. Because of the nature of U-Predict sometimes there is no way of proving our accuracy with actual events. However, in the last three days the predictions made by the reading room for 2014 have already started to unfold. Read more

Your Grandpa's Bigfoot

The Bigfoot phenomenon is nothing new, says Lon Strickler.
The Bigfoot saga has been around a long time...and there are hundreds of accounts to back it up. I have posted 3 newspaper reports describing Bigfoot from yesteryear:

Capturing EVPs No Simple Matter

If you watch the paranormal TV shows, capturing electronic voice phenomena (EVP) looks simple, but Lee Arnold says it's not as easy as it looks.
Capturing and analyzing electronic voice phenomena (EVP) is more involved than many amateur ghost hunters realize, and this lack of understanding results in shoddy results at best.

I have to admit, until I really began researching EVPs I fell into this crowd of amateur ghost hunters armed with a single recording device who never put enough thought into it to collect results that were worth a damn. Read more

Time Travel Is Possible, Say Scientists

The subject of time travel has intrigued science-fiction writers from the time of H.G. Wells, but now scientists are suggesting that the concept is theoretically sound.
A closed timelike curve is a loop back in time (somewhat like the time portals in the Hollywood film Looper). That is, at certain "locations" in spacetime, there is a wormhole such that, if you jump in, you'll emerge at some point in the past. To the best of our knowledge, these time loops are not ruled out by the laws of physics.

Recent research of Todd Brun, Andreas Winter and I shows how a time traveler can copy quantum data at will, in violation of a fundamental principle of quantum mechanics often referred to as the "no quantum Xerox machine" theorem. The method involves looping a quantum particle back many times in the past and then reading out many copies of it in such a way that you don't disturb the past. Read more

The 4 Possible Types of Parallel Universes... and Can We Visit Them?

Most people have heard of parallel universes, but there are actually four possible types postulated by physicists. 
In the last decade, parallel universes–a thought experiment once reserved for geeks on rainy (or sunny) weekends–has become something of buzzword, up there with dark matter and time travel in its capacity to captivate. It used to be that no one actually believed in parallel universes, they just thought it was cool to think about. Then something called string theory (or the ‘branes’) came around and pistol-whipped us with the notion of other dimensions wrapped into the fabric of our own reality. The shocks to the system didn’t stop and, in recent years, scientists have actually begun to look for physical evidence of the ‘multiverse’. Read more

Top 5 Phenomena That Offer Evidence for an Afterlife

Wondering what happens after you die? Greg Taylor lists five phenomena which offer evidence for an afterlife.
In the modern age, the debate over the possibility that our consciousness might survive the physical death of our body is often reduced to a false dichotomy of science vs religion. As such, scientists sadly often ignore and ridicule reports of strange phenomena from those who have approached, and in some cases gone beyond, the threshold of death, even though such experiences have a profound effect upon those who undergo them. Do these phenomena offer evidence that we might live on in some way past the demise of our physical selves? Here’s a list of five areas, taken from the book Stop Worrying! There Probably is an Afterlife (Kindle/Paperback), which suggest that it might just be so: Read more

The After Death Writings of Mark Twain

Jason Offutt examines the possibility that Mark Twain dictated a novel from the Great Beyond.
Although Spiritualism is still around, it had its heyday from the mid-1800s to the early-1900s. The religion, which had nearly eight million members across the United States and Europe during that time, attracted members of the upper and middle classes, and with the use of séances and psychic mediums they talked with the spirits of the dead. Mediums Kate and Maggie Fox, Florence Cook, and Pearl Curran made worldwide headlines with their communications with the spirit world.

The Ouija board became a popular Spiritualist tool in the early 1900s, and mediums began to conjure up what they claimed were the thoughts of famous people long since departed. People like Mark Twain.

Samuel Clemens, otherwise known as Mark Twain, died in 1910. During the mid-to late-1800s, Twain’s novels, essays and short stories made him a worldwide celebrity. Through financial failures and personal tragedy, Twain, who in 1875 pecked out the first novel ever written on a typewriter, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” never stopped writing. Maybe even after death. Read more
