Vigrin Mary Sighting....This time in a Tree...AGAIN

Well you don't see hundreds of followers gather to worship a severed tree branch every day.... Unless you are a follower of Finding Bigfoot and Tree Knocking.

But in the little village of Pocboc, Mexico, the faith driven believers are coming from far and wide to pray next to a tree they believe contains an image of the Virgin Mary.
 
While it may not look so obvious to those without a large imagination (and a strong will to believe) religious villagers and tourists who are flocking to the site are so convinced of the likeness they insist it is a modern-day miracle.

Dozens of candles and flowers started showing up daily at the foot of the tree as an offering to the image that they consider a miracle, despite skeptics saying it is nothing more than a pattern created by the tree rings. 

Pocboc is in the municipality of Hecelchakan in the south-eastern Mexican state of Campeche, where Prince Charles and Camilla recently visited.
 
Residents of the village say that the silhouette of the Virgin suddenly appeared in the trunk of the Melina tree (Gmelina arborea) and now locals are being joined by Catholic faithful from far and wide.
 
A 75-year-old villager, discovered the image while on an afternoon stroll to her work as a cleaner at the local high school.  The director of the school where the cleaner was heading said: 'Nothing like this has ever happened around here before, it must be a miracle.'

Locals share 'For us it is a miracle. We believe that God sent it to give us his blessing, so there will be an end to suffering,' they said.
 
They are also going to ask the regional bishop if the image in the piece of wood could be considered as an official miracle.

Review: Inspectres Movie

     We were recently sent a screening of a New Independent film by its Director  Darren Orange for review.
 
     Dealing with the Independent industry like we do, we are strong supporters of Independent films,  yes the budgets are smaller, yes the equipment is not of the same quality..... seriously who can afford some of that gear, but the content coming out of the minds of these guys rival Hollywood.
 
     And if you have  been paying attention to what Hollywood has been producing, you'll notice that they are stuck in the Reboot rut, or simply rehashing a concept to death.... seriously Cinderella has been done to death, with yet another version about to be released.
 
     So finding the Independent Film scene has been a breath of fresh air.
 
   
 
 
 
 
Inspectres is fresh new comedy reminiscent of Ghost Busters, meets  Men in Black, meets, RIPD.
 
In a world where ghosts, ghouls, and goblins are a common place, the InSpectres are the only exterminators capable of eliminating these supernatural nuisances! After a run in with a zombie, Lucas joins the InSpectres as an agent in training. He, his mentor Tracey, and company embark on eerily funny adventure aimed at re-capturing entities freed from a government holding facility by a corporate saboteur. They encounter a variety of released oddities on their path to identifying the saboteur: an invisible Hollywood fan-boy, a party animal wolf-man, and a group of German gremlins who fix 8-Bit arcade machines. The motley crew tracks the culprit across the country to prevent Armageddon. In the end, the Inspectres' heart and persistence prove exactly why they are the ones who "...fight the forces of darkness so you don't have to!"
 
     The cinematography was  pretty Damn good,  as was it's scripting.  I hesitate  on special effects only because I do effects, and it's a pet peeve of mine, nothing more, I just have OCD When it comes to effects lol.
 
     However it is a fun film, and very entertaining, and talking with the director, who ironically is the nephew to a fellow Paranormal researcher I'm friends with, it has been a blast dealing with this crew.  I look forward, to seeing more work from these guys.
 
     For your first major project, you guys knocked it out of the park.
 
Kudos!
 
I give it....... 4 out of 5 PROBES
 
     Hope to catch up with you guys at an upcoming Convention sometime soon.
 
     GO HERE to purchase your digital copy,  GO HERE to purchase your physical copy for Christmas now.  It's available  to Stream, Download, DVD, and Blu-ray.

Bigfoot located, in Oklahoma..... and Damn! Squatch Tastes good

     While out on a recent adventure in Texas, tracking down some leads on some stories to come later, I had to do some trekking in Oklahoma.  And I am glad  I changed  my route on the GPS....
 
     Ok fine I made a wrong turn and GPS put me on a new path.
 
 
 
     They say all things happen for a reason, and I'll be one of the first to say wholeheartedly  who can deny fate.
 
     Out on Hwy 69, about 53 miles North of the Oklahoma  / Texas  border, in a little  town of Caney, OK  you will come across a unique BBQ joint.
 
     Look to your left and you will see Bigfoot's BBQ.  A small family run diner that's huge on flavor.
 
     I always try to visit small businesses when I am out and about.  Fast food chains I can go to anywhere, and I am a big supporter of small business.  I can be frequently spotted at some roadside diner along Interstate Anywhere USA.
 
     Bigfoot's BBQ  just screamed to me STOP!  And who am I for confrontation.  So I marked my GPS  as I had a scheduled  meeting to get to in Texas.
 
     On my return trip I got all giddy pulling into the parking lot.  It's not every day you spot a location with a Cryptid in its name... and I seek these locations out!
 
     Boy let me tell you, mmm mmm mmm.  The expression here in the south is , "it's so  good you'll  slap yah momma".. ... sorry momma.
 
 
 
     I went with the pork tenderloin platter..(my cardiac Doctor will kill me).... wow my mouth is watering just thinking back to this experience.  Juicy, tangy, sweet heaven in your mouth.  No other way to describe it.
 
    
 
 
    
 
 
     Not only is the food great, the prices are easy on the checkbook  too.  The staff is polite, and the service.... my drink never ran empty.
 
 
 
 
 
     Oh..... there's a Bigfoot inside too awaiting photo opts too.
     To date  the best Cryptid  themed BBQ joint I've  been to yet.
 
 
    
 
 So if your heading through Oklahoma,  it's worth the drive on hwy  69... pop into Bigfoot's  BBQ.  Tell them Jaydee  from ParaPalooza  sent yah.
 
 
 
 
 
 
    
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Be safe, seek out your own oddities, and enjoy your travels.

Have you missed us? Blame the Gray's and their stupid Probes!

     Help!!! We've been abducted!
     You've probably noticed some lack of activity here in the Odditorium.  We just wanted you all to know, we are alive and kicking so to speak.
     Due to some extensive traveling, coupled with some tech issues, and some surgeries that popped up for staff and some of our family, it has affected or ability to get uploads to post in a timely manner.
     For that we apologize.  Even though stories haven't been showing up, we have been out traveling, seeking some oddities  and collecting data on some hauntings, a few cryptids, and a UFO or two.
     As you start to settle in for the Holiday season, do not panic, we will have your fix!  And point you to some interesting stories as well as some unique locations that you yourself can go exploring.
     If you have a location you think the Odd Crew needs to delve  into share it with us.  It's time we cashed in some Frequent Flyer Miles!
     Oddity Trippers Unite!......... It's  mythical creature hunting season again. Just avoid the probes... those are always unpleasant.

10,000 Year Old Cave Paintings Depicting UFO's and Extraterrestrials

Our little rock floating in space, continues to become more mysterious by the day, as 10,000 year old rock paintings depicting possible extraterrestrials and UFOs have been found in Chhattisgarh, India.


These can be added to the long list of mysterious and unexplained “ancient alien art” that seems to lend to the belief that our ancient world and the people who lived at that time had contact with beings that did not originate from this planet.

According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings depict extraterrestrials.

The Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture is planning to seek the help of NASA and ISRO for research regarding the paintings.

The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject. The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. The nose and mouth are missing, and in a few pictures they are even shown wearing spacesuits. We can’t refuse the possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things.

Antiquity is filled with stories of beings, materials and flying objects that, according to modern day thinking, should not have existed. For anybody who has studied ancient mythology, they would know that a large amount of evidence exists today to turn those ‘mythical stories,’ (as we interpret them) into stories of a possible ancient reality.

The Sky is Falling The Sky is Falling.... no wait that's a UFO.

The Sky is Falling, no wait that might be a UFO.  Or space debris, damn you NASA.


On October 26, 2014 - A metal sphere yet to be identified plunged from the sky and into Northern Brazil. Eyewitnesses, report the UFO weighs about 110 pounds and measures roughly 3 feet in diameter.

The sphere fell on Wednesday in the village of Riacho dos Poços in Brazilian Maranhão state. No casualties were reported apart from an unfortunate cashew tree that was severed by the object as it plunged to the ground.


Valdir José Mendes, 46, told police the sphere landed several feet from his house leaving a 3 foot deep hole in the yard.

It made so much noise that Mendes was too scared to go outside. Later, curiosity did get the better of him and he went outside to find the cashew tree's trunk snapped in half by a mysterious metal sphere lying in a hole nearby.

Some 20 villagers joined Mendes to help him extract the object from the ground and examine it. Mendes says the sphere is hollow and if shaken some sort of liquid can be felt swishing inside. Locals quickly spread the news, as they reached the town of Mata Roma over 2,000 people flocked to see the "UFO".

Peter Costa, a meteorologist at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), says the object would probably be part of a satellite. "I'm sure this is not a weather balloon or part of it," he said

Military police confiscated the sphere and took it to the barracks in the nearby Mata Roma. They have not specified what the UFO's possible future will be.

In a statement the Air Force Command said it "does not have specialized structures to perform scientific research on this type of aerial phenomena, which prevents the institution to submit an opinion on these events."

Heads UP!!!!

Review: The Evil Within? More like The Horror Within

Sneaking around, climbing leaders, avoiding chainsaw men, and figuring out death traps?

First off, I would like to say "This is the game we've been waiting for". Godfather of survival horror games "Shinji Mikami" (creator of the Resident Evil series) brings us his latest master piece. 

My first 18hrs 25min 32secs play through on survival mode was insanely challenging, fun, and scary!

The game starts out with Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners, Joseph Oda and Julie Kidman arrive at a gruseome crime scene at a mental asylum. Sebastian, and Joseph investigates and see everyone in the asylum were massacred. They check things out in the camera room. Sebastian see's a mysterious figure slashing 3 police officers just a few moments before he, and his team arrived. Sebastian turns around, and the figure that was on the computer screen, is now behind him, then attacks him. Sebastian wakes up tied upside down in a meat locker filled with other corpse. Sebastian escapes, and fight through the world of evil, in the search of his friends.

Pros and Cons.

I have to admit this game does have one con.

The only problem I had with The Evil Within, was the bugs. The game just came out on Tuesday 10/14/14. Bugs were expected. I really didn't have that many issues with the game. I spent 3 days playing it, all day, and ending the session at 3 o'clock in the morning. The game is gory, but it doesn't over do it. There will be times that you have to run, because the enemies are unbeatable.

The things I enjoyed most about this game, was the game play, story, and the difficulty. The game play is a mixture of The Last Of Us, and Resident Evil 4. You're left with very little ammo at times, you have to use stealth instead. The story is amazing, you will be craving to play the next chapter, just to that happens next!

RATE?

I give The Evil Within,


-Amazing game play 
-Amazing story
-Keeps you on the edge at all times
-Horror is perfect
-Perfect puzzles, and traps

Like I said earlier there are bugs, but will be fixed soon.

Satan's Hollow, Portal to Hell Located!


Gateway to Hell, Located in Suburban America.........just outside Cincinnati actually.  Now we tend to just think that's a little extreme if you ask us.  I mean how bad could it be living in the Blue Ash region........seriously.

Legend has it, that Satanists some how opened a gateway, a portal into Hell, that just happens to be in a storm drain, in the woods behind an apartment complex.....

Yeah we don't get it either.

The Folklore (and we love us some folklore mind you), is so pervasive that the reported haunted tunnel system is called "Satan's Hollow"  Ohhh that does have a ring to it.  Satan's Hollow has become quite the hotspot for ghost hunters and local teenagers.

Blue Ash Police Department has stated that its rough on the homeowners, that people park in their driveway and try to gain access into the drainage system.  The landowner has ran people off numerous times (and we do not blame them).

It's reported that visitors commonly claim to hear screams coming from the drain system, or see floating faces in the darkness or the Shadow Man Demon guarding its entrance. (ok but what about the homeowners....... I mean they live right there......are they hearing things...... are they seeing things).

There is a YouTube story, that came out, that a Creepy team in Cincinnati has found Hells Door.  We refuse to name, or give links to this team for the mere fact as Scientific Researchers ourselves of the Fringe....... the mere lack of respect of this investigation team for Trespassing in the first place leaves us speechless.  Seriously, to not only trespass, make wild claims, but to post videos of you breaking the law!!!!  Good Grief Get a Life!

Even though this research (I laugh typing the words) team have tons of wild claims, and tons of supposed evidence, local law enforcement dismiss the claims as fabricated rumors...... as most legends are sadly.

No one's been sacrificed, no animals have been killed in the tunnel to open a portal to hell.

We've seen stories on this location before, and especially this time of year, all the spooky locations come to light.

But remember this, True Research, requires ethics, discipline, and scientific methods.  Not wondering to a storm drain in the middle of the night, trespassing.  NO TEAM SHOULD EVER TRESSPASS. I for one vote all Trespassers be Arrested ON SITE.

REAL Vampire Graves Uncovered in Bulgaria

     Not just some catching title to get you to click here.  We don't get paid for clicks just so you know.

     But Archaeologists are a little taken back at their latest discovery unearthed recently.  Archaeologists have uncovered medieval corpses buried with an iron stake to stop them joining the undead.


     These are the 6th and 7th vampires found in the past 2 years. The so-called 'vampire graves' contain skeletons which all have an iron rod impaled through their bodies where their heart would have been.





    


     The discovery, made at the ancient temple of Perperion, south-east of the Bulgarian capital Sofia, is further evidence that people really did believe that vampires could rise from the dead if they were not buried properly.

    







     In the 13th and 14th centuries, many Eastern Europeans held the belief that vampires were real, causing mass hysteria when people suspected someone of being one of the blood-sucking creatures.




    





     Scores of people were killed because they were thought to be vampires, similar to witch-hunts elsewhere in Europe and North America. However it may be possible that some towns had a ritual of hammering a stake into dead people's hearts to make sure they did not join the undead, even if there was no suspicion of them being a vampire.

Unknown DNA Sequences found in Paracas Skulls, Relatives of Bigfoot Perhaps?

     Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Inca Region, on the south coast of Peru. 

     It was here that a Peruvian archaeologist, by the name of Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery back in 1928 – a graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world.

     These have come to be known as the ‘Paracas skulls’.







     More than 300 of these elongated skulls were found, which are believed to date back around 3,000 years. A DNA analysis has now been conducted on one of the skulls and preliminary information regarding these enigmatic skulls has just been released. It is well-known that most cases of skull elongation are the result of cranial deformation, head flattening, or head binding, in which the skull is intentionally deformed by applying force over a long period of time. It is usually achieved by binding the head between two pieces of wood, or binding in cloth. However, while cranial deformation changes the shape of the skull, it does not alter its volume, weight, or other features that are characteristic of a regular human skull.

The Paracas skulls, however, are different.  The cranial volume is up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls, meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head binding/flattening. They also contain only one parietal plate, rather than two. The fact that the skulls’ features are not the result of cranial deformation means that the cause of the elongation is a mystery, and has been for decades. 


 
     The DNA samples consisted of hair, including roots, a tooth, skull bone and some skin. This process was carefully documented via photos and video. Samples from three skulls were sent to the geneticist, although the geneticist was not given any information about what they came from until after the genetic testing, so as not to create any preconceived ideas. It contained Mitochondrial DNA with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known thus far. But a few fragments that were able to sequenced from this sample indicated that these mutations could mean we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.

     The results of this analysis is only one phase of many.  The next tests will involve having the initial test replicated, and conducted on other skulls, so that the results can be compared to see if there are any specific Paracas characteristics.

     It will be interesting to see how these future test results turn out as it further deepens the mystery and has researchers asking even more questions than before.  Just who were the Paracas Peoples Relatives of Bigfoot perhaps? Decendents or Residents from Atlantis maybe.  Perhaps not even of this world, but from somewhere Out There!

Review: Willow Creek Bigfoot is On the Rampage.

 Director Bobcat Goldthwait has stepped into the Cryptozoology realm with his latest film Willow Creek.

Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are visiting the infamous Willow Creek, the alleged home of the original Bigfoot legend - the tale of huge ape like creatures that roam the forests of North America. It was there that in 1967, the legendary beast was captured on film and has terrified and mystified generations since.

Keen to explore more than 50 years of truth, folklore, misidentifications and hoaxes, Kelly goes along for the ride to keep Jim happy, whilst he is determined to prove the story is real by capturing the beast on camera.







Deep in the dark and silent woods, isolated and hours from human contact, neither Kelly or Jim are prepared for what is hidden between the trees, and what happens when the cameras start rolling...



Sadly, this movie was not what I was expecting.  I'm not fond of the Blair Witch found footage type movies.  I was when Blair Witch came out, but now for the past few years EVERYONE is doing that type of film.

Don't get me wrong........I've seen some BAD straight out movies about Bigfoot.

This one is entertaining, just not what I was expecting from Bobcat Goldthwait.


It's Still worth sitting down to watch.

Review: Alien Abduction

Alien Abduction (2014) directed by Matty Beckerman
 
This is the story of a family that runs into some trouble as they drive along a mountain road. There isn't a whole lot I can say about this movie, mostly because I lost interest as I was watching and played a couple of games and read my Facebook page.
 
 It didn't hold my attention until the very end. I would have to say that the last 2 minutes of the movie are the best with maybe an interesting scene near the beginning.
 
If you have nothing better to do or you just like alien abduction movies then you should not miss this one otherwise I say NAY.

There are alot of really cheesy, bad, spider movies out there, but I have to say that Big Ass Spider although cheesy, isn't bad. Aside from the Big Ass Spider and people getting eaten and torn apart its not all that scary but really frickin hilarious.
 
If you are in the mood for a light horror movie I say YAY on Big Ass Spider.
 
 
I would rank this one, a 3 out of 5 on Our Alien Probe Meter!

UFO Photographed In Broad Daylight

     A fascinating craft hovering in broad daylight over the California skies was photographed and submitted to MUFON along with detailed witness testimony:

     The eyewitness was coming home and pulled into his driveway. Above and beyond his neighbors home he noticed a bright orb hovering. It reflected the sunset orange, and that is what caught his eye. despite being a completely clear blue sky. At first he thought it could be a balloon or some sort of odd looking helicopter or drone, but it didn’t have any rotors. It appeared to have rods or antenna coming out of it Kind of resembling some older Russian Satellites like Sputnik.

     He went to into his backyard to get a better vantage point. It appeared to be less than a mile away over residences. Over a 5 minute period he grabbed his camera, then went back for his tripod for a better quality photo.

     Later grabbing his video camera and began to shoot video for about 20 min. Over the approx 45 Minute that it lingered, there was some wavering like it was being affected by air movement. At times it would descend behind a large tree, then reappear slowly as it came out from behind the tree.

     The object remained relatively stable then started to slowly drift away to the SW until it couldn’t be seen anymore due to darkness.

     UFO?, or a really interesting balloon to generate stories just like this one?  It really does resemble Sputnik.

Government Confirmation! Legendary Creature Does Exist.... {Video}

     You read that title correctly.  The Government has announced a supposed mythical creature, a legend that has stood the test of time, in fact does indeed exist.

     Ok so its not the U.S. government telling the truth for once.. {like they ever have}

     However if you jet up North to Iceland, there you will get the facts.   So just what are the facts you ask?

     The Icelandic government carried out an investigation by the Fljotsdalsherao municipal council and  has ruled that a legendary sea serpent named Lagarfljotsormurinn {Seriously I could barely type that name.......how the hell am I supposed to pronounce it}, which is rumoured to inhabit Lake Lagarfljot, actually exists.  The commission has ruled that a 2012 video of what is claimed to be Iceland’s most famous lake monster is indeed authentic.

     The Lagarfljótsormur, or ‘Lagarfljót worm’ is an Icelandic lake cryptid which is purported to live in Lagarfljót, a freshwater, glacial-fed lake in Egilsstaðir. The earliest recorded sightings of the Lagarfljótsormur date back to the Icelandic Annals of 1345, and have continued into the 21st century.

     However, sightings increased exponentially after a home video shot in 2012 went viral. The home video shows what looks like a long, serpentine form swimming in the glacial lake in eastern Iceland.

{Oh look we found the video.  Lets take a peak shall we.}
 




{Ummmmmmmmmm.........  I got nothing!}

     Well anyway the Lagarfljótsormur {seriously my fingers cramp every time I type that name} is typically described as being 90 metres in length {that's 295 friggin feet people!}with many humps, and has also been reported outside the water, lying coiled up or slithering into the trees. In ancient times, sightings were considered to precede a great event such as a natural disaster. {Mothman anyone}

     In 1963, the head of the Icelandic National Forest Service, Sigurður Blöndal, reported seeing the giant worm, and in 1998 a teacher and students at Hallormsstaðir School also claimed to have witnessed the legendary creature.

     In February 2012, the Icelandic national broadcaster, RÚV, published the home video thought to show the Lagarfljót Worm, however, skeptics claimed that the video simply depicts an inanimate object moved by the rapid current.  Undeterred by skeptical explanations, the Fljótsdalshérað municipal council established a 13-person ‘truth commission’ to determine whether the video shot by Hjörtur E. Kjerúlf was authentic. {we're not sold on this video..... to many variables at play}

     The inquiry has just completed its investigation, and has determined that the video is authentic and recommends further investigation and research into the Lagarfljótsormur.
{Someone call our Travel Agent.....I'm serious I have Creature Miles to Cash in Damnit}The commission may have also been somewhat ‘motivated’ by the burst of tourism caused by the 2012 video.  A sightseeing boat named Lagarfljótsormurinn, which operates on the lake, seeks to preserve the traditions of the Lagarfljót Worm for cultural and tourism purposes. {Most locations tied to a legend or haunting do the same thing.... all in good fun, and business sense}

     If the video is authentic, and actually depicts a living creature, it may not be as monstrous as the legends say. Many species of fish have been found which resemble ‘sea monsters’ described in mythological tales, for example, the frilled shark (Chlamydoselachus anguineus), and the giant oarfish (Regalecus glesne). It might just be that a similar species may inhabit Lake Lagarfljot, leading to the development of legendary tales over the centuries.

Life After Death, Proven by Scientists.

As someone who has actually been in that boat, someone who has been on life support with their heart on one table, as I lay on another table with only a machine pumping my blood for hours as they did their best to repair my heart.  It made me think, made me speculate even more on the great beyond..........that next step in our journey as spiritual beings in a physical body.

I even told my beautiful wife  just as I was going under (don't recall much of those 2 days but remember this.....) Honey,.........I'm going to do an experiment during all this.

My attempt was to have an OBE, or Out of Body Experience, to try and hear the conversations while I was under, wonder around and observe existence from a different perspective..

Well, my memory from that traumatic event last summer, is but a blur to me.  It took me months to have any sort of normal memory.  I do not remember several days including the day of the surgery, so alas my experiment failed.

However Scientists have been doing some tests, and this is what they are turning up!

Berlin: A team of psychologists and medical doctors associated with the Technische Universität of Berlin, have announced this morning that they had proven by clinical experimentation, the existence of some form of life after death. This astonishing announcement is based on the conclusions of a study using a new type of medically supervised near-death experiences, that allow patients to be clinically dead for almost 20 minutes before being brought back to life.

This controversial process that was repeated on 944 volunteers over that last four years, necessitates a complex mixture of drugs including epinephrine and dimethyltryptamine, destined to allow the body to survive the state of clinical death and the reanimation process without damage. The body of the subject was then put into a temporary comatic state induced by a mixture of other drugs which had to be filtered by ozone from his blood during the reanimation process 18 minutes later.

The extremely long duration of the experience was only recently made possible by the development of a new cardiopulmonary recitation (CPR) machine called the AutoPulse. This type of equipment has already been used over the last few years, to reanimate people who had been dead for somewhere between 40 minutes to an hour.

Near-death experiences have been hypothesized in various medical journals in the past, as having the characteristics of hallucinations, but Dr. Ackermann and his team, on the contrary, consider them as evidence for the existence of the afterlife and of a form of dualism between mind and body."

The team of scientists led by Dr. Berthold Ackermann, has monitored the operations and have compiled the testimonies of the subjects. Although there are some slight variations from one individual to another, all of the subjects have some memories of their period of clinical death. and a vast majority of them described some very similar sensations.

Most common memories include a feeling of detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of an overwhelming light.

The scientists say that they are well aware the many of their conclusions could shock a lot of people, like the fact that the religious beliefs of the various subjects seems to have held no incidence at all, on the sensations and experiences that they described at the end of the experiment. Indeed, the volunteers counted in their ranks some members are a variety of Christian churches, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and atheists..

“I know our results could disturb the beliefs of many people” says Mr. Ackermann. “But in a way, we have just answered one of the greatest questions in the history of mankind, so I hope these people will be able to forgive us. Yes, there is life after death and it looks like this applies to everyone.”

Kind of reminds me of a Movie.......

Spirits toss a Pint of Ale without Spilling a Drop

A Cornwall couple have come to the conclusion that their 17th century pub has more than just the spirits you put in a glass.  The couple, Jenny Heard and Martin McConn laughed off the ghostly tales tied to the historic Crow's Nest Inn on Bodmin Moor, in Cornwall.

But just days after their arrival the couple witnessed a full pint of Proper Job ale flew off the bar, landing on the floor - without spilling a single drop.



When they raced over to inspect the mess they were stunned to find the glass was standing upright on the stone floor and none of the beer had spilled.

As the oldest building in the village that bears its name, the Crow's Nest has long been a focus for thirsty locals and moorland visitors alike, appearing on Joel Gascoyne's famous Map of Cornwall as far back as 1699.

Numerous paranormal events have been chronicled over the years, from a bell that was said to ring on its own, to a clock that constantly ran ten minutes fast no matter how many times it was wound back.

Locals say there are several Spirits in the traditional pub, including the spectre of a local woman who was murdered in 1844.

Jenny said: "It went terribly cold in the bar all of a sudden. Everybody in the pub just stopped and looked around to see how it could have happened, but the doors were all shut and nobody was standing near the glass at the time it moved."

Woman dies during exorcism

Police in Pakistan have launched a murder investigation after a young woman was reportedly beaten to death during an exorcism to “exorcise demons” from her.

The Report said the 24-year-old woman from Lahore, had been suffering from undiagnosed problems for some time and that her family had taken her to several doctors.

Her condition had not improved and so her family decided to take her to a local Pir, a Pir is a Muslim saint or holy man, who they believed could confront “the demons tormenting her”.

Police told the media that the young woman’s cousin, had taken her to the healer, identified as Pir Afzal. . During his so-called treatment, the Pir is alleged to have tied her up with ropes and began to beat her.

“When the young woman started screaming in pain, her cousin tried to stop him but the Pir told him that the blows were not hurting her,” a neighbor told the local newspaper.

At that point, the young woman fainted and efforts to revive her failed. The Pir then told the cousin to take her to hospital, where she subsequently died.

Police have reportedly arrested the cousin of the young woman and are looking for the pir.

Proof Aliens Exist? Body Found in South Africa


July 2013, it was reported that there was a discovery of a mysterious dead body that looks not of this world. The alien-like body was found outside Nature's Valley in South Africa by 17-year-old Curt-Leigh, the son of SANParks ranger Llewellyn Dixon.  The dead body of the bizarre creature was long and thin, with rough teeth and a shrunken head. The picture and alien claims created an internet storm back then, and it scared the local residents who proclaimed they have found proof of extraterrestrials. They said the body is of an alien who lived and died on planet Earth.


Skeptic who did not believe in paranormal and extraterrestrial claims speculated it could be a seal crossed with a monkey charred beyond recognition, or a donkey, aborted horse, badly shriveled dead dog, or even a Tikoloshe (a supernatural beast in Zulu mythology).


The mysterious claims came to an end after a local doctor Dr Magdalena Braum of The Crags Veterinary Clinic performed an autopsy of the alien-like creature and confirmed -- it was nothing more than a mummified baby baboon.

She explained saying, “It was a newborn female baboon, with umbilical cord still attached to her body. It was most likely killed by the bite through her skull soon after birth, possibly infanticide, which is very common in some primate species when a new male takes over the troop."

Further, she said the baby baboon is mummified as it was carried by the mother after death -- a common habit of female baboons to carry the deceased infants on their tail section for as long as 3-4 weeks before discarding them finally.

The Veterinary doctor says this is the reason why the creature has unusually long and narrow mid-body segment, that it is just a stretch.
