A haunted history lesson

The healing power of prayer?
Health and religion have always been intertwined, most obviously through prayer on behalf of the sick. Does intercessory prayer for sick people actually help heal them? For thousands of years some people have believed so. But new Brandeis University research in the Journal of Religion this month shows that over the last four decades, medical studies of intercessory prayer—the prayer of strangers at a distance—actually say more about the scientists conducting the studies than about the power of prayer to heal…

Chile: What the Devil…?
“What the devil is in this photo?” The text goes on to say: Rosa Araya says that the only thing she did was take a photo of her nephews in the backyard of her house in Montegrande to finish a roll of film. Upon developing the roll, she became aware of two things. She had only focused on the boys’ heads and that some strange luminous dots forming a sort of saucer appeared over the skies of Valle de Elqui. Ufologist Patricio Diaz, when consulted by the “El Dia” newspaper, dismissed the possibility that the image was a hoax…

C2C guest blows it on Patterson-Gimlin
One of the painful things about surveying the cryptozoological field is to watch people that should know better misrepresent facts, conjectures, and theories. As usual, one of the worst minefields is the Roger Patterson-Bob Gimlin footage of an apparent Bigfoot taken on October 20, 1967, in Bluff Creek, California. Sometimes people just say too much about the footage, without any firm foundation in what they are uttering. It is as if the sandbar at Bluff Creek has turned into a bit of verbal quicksand for some folks…

Given away by strange, crop circle-like formations seen from the air, a huge prehistoric ceremonial complex discovered in southern England has taken archaeologists by surprise.

Slapper: The phantom of Akalai Flats/La Valentina
Paul Dale Roberts: Cathy Orange meets me at a very unusual spot. She tells me to meet her at Safeway, she has a story for me, plus she has to get her grocery shopping done. I follow Cathy Orange down the aisles, as she selects coffee, cheeses, variety of meats, bread, cucumbers, cereals and everything else that she can fit into her basket.

Supernatural saviours
I think most of us are familiar with the concept of the guardian angel, who stays with you throughout your life on earth, guiding you and shielding you from danger and harm. Some mediums believe most of us have spirit guides, known as “Doorkeepers”, that stay with an individual from a time prior to birth right through to the afterlife and beyond. Whether that is true I cannot say, but over the years I have collected many accounts of a mysterious benevolent force preventing death and injury in the lives of people, and here are just a couple of these intriguing cases…

In the image, taken by a tourist, the ghostly face of the caveman seems to hover in mid air staring in to the distance…

Study proves planets impact animal behavior
No one who owns one doubts the family pooch exhibits personality traits that seem remarkably human at times. Is there a way to rationally explain this? Incredibly, a new book describing the original and unusual research pursuits of award-winning French scientist Suzel Fuzeau-Braesch presents rigorous proof that man and animals — specifically pedigreed pups and cloned cows — are behaviorally impacted by where the major planets turn up in their astrological birth charts!
