    I’ll call him Fr. John. He was a charismatic Anglo Catholic priest. A friend of my brother Daryl’s we’ll call Henry died suddenly in a plane crash and he was upset because although Henry was a believer he was away from God when he died. So Fr. John said, “We have to have a requiem Mass for Henry.” They went into church and locked the door for privacy’s sake. Another priest we’ll call Fr. George celebrated the Mass. Henry was about twenty years old. He was just over five foot tall with a shock of blonde hair and a wide...

    ... Moving on to the 1990s, there is the very unsettling saga of Ray Boeche, an Anglican priest and a former state-director for MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network. In 1991, Boeche met (at Lincoln, Nebraska) with two US Department of Defense physicists working on a project to try and contact what were termed “Non-Human Entities,” or NHEs. While the initial assumption on the part of the DoD team-members was that the NHEs were extraterrestrial, that view soon changed. And radically so, too. Eventually, the project personnel concluded that far from being the aliens they purported to be, the NHEs were...

    In 2001 I was serving a Mormon mission in Guayaquil, Ecuador. As you might know, missionaries are paired up in twos and are called companionships. My particular companion at this time was a young guy from Chile. We lived in a little two level home made of cinder blocks and cement just on the outskirts of a small town near Guayaquil. We lived on the lower level. My companion had lived in this home for a couple of months before I moved in, and at this time, I had moved in 2 months prior. As you may know, missionaries have...

    SEVERAL YEARS ago the Sons of the Pioneers, a Mormon fraternal organization permitted me to accompany them as the only nonmormon on a re-enactment of the original mormon trek from Nauvoo, Ill. to Salt Lake City. Our seven day trip was made in simulated Conestoga wagons, modern cars rigged up with rounded canvas tops and life-sized oxen carved out of plywood firmly clamped on each side of the hood. We followed the original Mormon trail which led over prairie roads and mountain passes -- 1600 miles over which the intrepid pioneers had trudged on foot, pushing their two-wheeled handcarts, defying...

    A year after Amanda Berry disappeared in Cleveland, her mother appeared on "The Montel Williams Show" to speak to a psychic about what happened to her daughter. Psychic Sylvia Browne, who has made a career of televised psychic readings, told Louwanna Miller on a 2004 episode of the show that her daughter was dead, causing Miller to break down in tears on the show's set. "She's not alive, honey," Browne told Miller on the show, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper. "Your daughter's not the kind who wouldn't call." Miller told the newspaper that she believed "98 percent" in...

    There have been shows on toddler beauty pageants, raising multiples, and children living with other peoples’ wives. But now, a pair of producers is hoping to feature children who have lived past lives. Hoping to find children who ‘have inexplicable memories and experiences of another life,’ the producers insist that past-life memories are real and somewhat common. Speaking with the Huffington Post, husband-and-wife producers Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina hope to find children, aged 2-10, who have inexplicable memories that seem to be from past lives. ‘We wanted to tell these parents’ stories without trying to prove or disprove them.’...

    Imagine this. You and your better half are on your way home after a late night out on the town. You pull into a convenience store, and you wait in the car while he runs in for something. You’re sitting there in the dark waiting for him to return when suddenly you get an inexplicable, overwhelming feeling of terror. You sit up a little straighter and glance toward the driver’s side window. There staring in at you are two children – but not just any children. These are “Black Eyed Children,” and they want to get into the car with...

    “I saw a ship and two creatures inside of this ship… And they were connected to me, tapped into my mind through some kind of mysterious wireless connection,” explains Sammy Hagar in his new book, Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock. The brief memoir, whose release coincides with "Alien Abduction Day", is not the first instance in which the former Van Halen singer has offered public disclosures of ET contact. A new report from a Vancouver audio lab suggests that Sammy Hagar was covertly communicating about alien abduction as early as 1991.

    American Psychological Association ^ | 01/2011 | Daryl J. Bam
    The term psi denotes anomalous processes of information or energy transfer that are currently unexplained in terms of known physical or biological mechanisms. Two variants of psi are precognition (conscious cognitive awareness) and premonition (affective apprehension) of a future event that could not otherwise be anticipated through any known inferential process. Precognition and premonition are themselves special cases of a more general phenomenon: the anomalous retroactive influence of some future event on an individual’s current responses, whether those responses are conscious or nonconscious, cognitive or affective. This article reports 9 experiments, involving more than 1,000 participants, that test for retroactive...

    Soulsearchers 'see ghosts' during Carlisle restaurant investigation Last updated at 13:18, Thursday, 14 October 2010 It’s a cold, October night in Carlisle. Fog rolls in over the cathedral, lit up against the black sky and stoops to kiss the cobblestones outside the restaurant. Inside, the customers are gone. The tables, still laid as if for a ghostly banquet, are occupied by seven men and women, awkwardly observing a reverent hush. Two burly Scotsmen are flitting about with bits of machinery, recording the readings on digital screens. Only two people seem relaxed. They sit at separate tables, scribbling their thoughts into...

And while they can't name a suspect, they think it has something to do with a hidden cache of Nazi gold. It helps that both of them happen to be paranormal investigators. They live in San Antonio but on a visit to the Rio Grande Valley, the two unveiled their theory Tuesday and shared a forensic examiner's report on the dug-up remains of Adam G. Martinez.

    A new study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life reveals some startling differences between Republicans and Democrats on issues of spirituality and supernatural phenomenon. The study, "Many Americans Mix Multiple Faiths," reports that a significant number of Americans practice a mixture of religious beliefs, and "many also blend Christianity with Eastern or New Age beliefs such as reincarnation, astrology and the presence of spiritual energy in physical objects." The report is not specifically about partisan differences, but the results of the study are broken down by party affiliation, among many other categories. And the news on...

    In the new movie The Men Who Stare at Goats, which opens today in the United States, George Clooney plays a former member of a secret sect of soldiers trained by the U.S. military to deploy a host of paranormal weapons against the enemy. Their deadly talents supposedly include the ability to kill a goat via psychokinesis—by staring at the beast they can make its heart stop with thought alone. The movie takes some liberties in the name of comedy, but the program it's based on is real. During the Cold War, the U.S. military became convinced it was losing...

    TORONTO -- A first date with a playful, late-night search for ghosts inside a University of Toronto landmark ended in tragedy yesterday when a 29-year-old woman plunged to her death. Leah Kubik, just two weeks shy of her 30th birthday, was found without vital signs inside a courtyard just before 2 a.m. "They were believed to be exploring an old building because it's rumoured to be haunted," Toronto Police Const. Wendy Drummond told the Sun. The Gothic-style, 134-year-old Connaught medical research building was the site of a grisly murder in 2001 but paranormal experts stress it's not haunted, only rumoured...

    Paranormal: An Encounter With Black-Eyed Kids by Jason Offutt Posted: 13:15 February 4, 2009 There’s something wrong with these children. They approach quietly, yet boldly. They’re young, usually teens or slightly younger. They insist on coming inside your house to use the bathroom, the telephone or just for a drink of water. But for some reason you’re afraid. Why? They’re just kids. Then you notice their eyes – black, as if the pupil had poured over its banks. You don’t let them in – or do you? Black-eyed kids. The term has floated across cyberspace since Jan. 16, 1998 when...

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is well known for pushing the boundaries of science and technology in search of ways to give the U.S. military an edge—robotic pack animals, self-navigating vehicles and plant-based jet fuel, to name a few. Less well known is the agency's Cold War-era investigation into how paranormal phenomena like extrasensory perception might be used by the U.S. to get a leg up on the former Soviet Union and, perhaps more importantly, by the USSR against the United States. Working with Washington, D.C., think tank RAND Corporation, DARPA determined that paranormal research by the Soviets...

    A new concept for a time machine could possibly enable distant future generations to travel into the past, research now suggests. Unlike past ideas for time machines, this new concept does not require exotic, theoretical forms of matter. Still, this new idea requires technology far more advanced than anything existing today, and major questions remain as to whether any time machine would ever prove stable enough to enable actual travel back in time. Time travel research is based on bending space-time so much that time lines actually turn back on themselves to form a loop, technically known as a "closed...

I found out about this thanks to alert reader Steven Moe, who sent me an article from The Press of Christchurch, concerning ''the discovery of several dead sheep high in the trees of Tunnicliffe Forest.'' Right away, I said to myself, ''Hmm.'' I base this statement on the well-known fact that sheep are not...

    SALEM — In a paranormal public hearing last night, dozens of psychics argued before a city licensing panel about what the future holds if Salem cracks down on rogue clairvoyants. Unfortunately, no clear vision emerged from the meeting. One side told councilors the city needs to embrace its standing as the Witch City by allowing more licensed psychics. But opponents warned that oversimplifying the process could bring predators bent on making an easy dollar, rather than ethically telling fortunes. The debate unfolded before a hearing of the City Council's licensing committee, which is pondering tightening its regulation of Salem's fortunetelling...

    West Barnstable group uses tools to identify voices from beyondYARMOUTHPORT - Three words. "Did anybody answer?" And David Sircom ripped off his headphones and backed against the wall. Just three words. His disbelief vanished. "I always believed there was something after death," Sircom said, "but not that you could interact with them." He'd asked out loud if there were any spirits in his home that wanted to communicate.The first time he heard nothing. A few hours later on that fall morning in 2000, he tried again. Sircom started his tape recorder, asked his question and waited a few moments. Then...

    Can This Black Box See Into the Future? - DEEP in the basement of a dusty university library in Edinburgh lies a small black box, roughly the size of two cigarette packets side by side, that churns out random numbers in an endless stream. At first glance it is an unremarkable piece of equipment. Encased in metal, it contains at its heart a microchip no more complex than the ones found in modern pocket calculators. But, according to a growing band of top scientists, this box has quite extraordinary powers. It is, they claim, the 'eye' of a machine that...

    I know what you are thinking......... Haunted Television, Yeah Right! This television has a very violent past. And many different stories. Here is the first, one I can verify. We purchased this television in a estate sale 2 years ago, after we experienced a house fire and lost everything. We figured we got a good deal, and thought maybe the seller felt sorry for us. We understand now that they were probably willing to just give it a way. Now, at the time we were not aware of the history this TV. But after odd experiences of our own, and...

    In Disneyland of the Gods, John Keel writes of the Black Knight satellite. Never mind the almanac. You won't find it listed with Sputnik or Explorer. Black Knight is the name given to a radar blip discovered in 1960. This mystery satellite was found in a polar orbit, something neither the US nor the Soviets had accomplished. It was several times larger and several times heavier than anything capable of being launched with 1960 rockets. It shouldn't have been there, but it was.

The bird, a captive African grey called N'kisi, has a vocabulary of 950 words, and shows signs of a sense of humour. He invents his own words and phrases if he is confronted with novel ideas with which his existing repertoire cannot cope - just as a human child would do. N'kisi's remarkable abilities, which are said to include telepathy, feature in the latest BBC Wildlife Magazine. N'kisi is believed to be one of the most advanced users of human language...

    Charles Berlitz, who just died, was known as one of the world's top linguists and grandson of the founder of the Berlitz language schools. Yet his true claim to fame was as author of "truth is stranger than fiction" books that were actually just plain fiction. A Time magazine reviewer summarized all of Berlitz's paranormal works in describing one as taking "off from established facts, then proceed[ing] to lace its theses with a hodgepodge of half-truths, unsubstantiated reports and unsubstantial science." Among his vast repertoire: "The Mystery of Atlantis" (1969), "Mysteries from Forgotten Worlds" (1972), "The Bermuda Triangle (1974), "The...
