The Skara Brae Artefacts: Who Made Them, and Why? - Daily Grail
Tue, 02 Mar 2021 19:12:54 GMT
Our theme: "Taking another look at something, and coming up with a surprise." Greg Taylor discusses a remarkable paper proposing an eye-opening yet "fundamentally commonsense" use for some enigmatic Neolithic objects. Miguel (Red Pill Junkie) Romero offers Examples of Underestimated Archaeology Similar to Sutton Hoo. These are mostly monumental instances where time proved the greater importance of a find. Still on the huge end, a recent surprise has archaeologists thinking New Thoughts on the Origins of Stonehenge. This article summarizes the find and its import, linking to an academic source recounting the many scientific techniques--plus good 'ol digging--behind a more complex theory about the movement of stones and people from several Welsh sites eastwards. Returning to our start and amazing developments and interpretations from smaller traces of the past, CT Scans of Egyptian Mummy Reveal New Details about the Death of a Pivotal Pharaoh. Computed Tomography of Senenenre-Taa-II the Brave shows what X-rays taken in the 1960s missed, changing theories on how that not-completely-successful leader against the Hyksos died. And for something almost literally under our collective archaeological and historical noses since its 1871 discovery, see Stephen Luntz' Extinct Species of Goose Identified From "Egypt's Mona Lisa".

From Crop Circles to Time Travel: A Strange Connection - Mysterious Universe
Tue, 02 Mar 2021 19:12:53 GMT
The origins of crop circles and their purpose is a subject guaranteed to start arguments among even the coolest of forteans. So it's good news that it doesn't matter if ET phoned home via corn stalks and wheat sheafs. And it also doesn't matter if a group of pranksters created the formations overnight in the throes of a skeptical rager. What matters is the formations appear to call in ancient sources of power much like the stone circles around the world. Think on that a while because the potential seems endless. Anomalies within these creations are therefore no surprise. Crop Circles: “Missing Time� Experiences Within describes an experience not only of missing time, but a Woman-in-Black encounter that made little sense and left the witness ill and confused. (CM)

Tim Beckley and Jerome Clark - The Paracast
Tue, 02 Mar 2021 19:12:52 GMT
Joining Gene Steinberg and Randall Murphy for the 15th Anniversary of The Paracast are two old friends of Gene's, for a retrospective sallying forth into some predictions for the ufological future. You don't have to be an historian to appreciate the tales Tim and Jerry relate about some of the "colourful" (per Canadian Randall) people in UFO studies. The two in a sense exemplify the breadth of serious interest in the field. Tim regales the Paracasters and us with some "synchronicity stories," only a small portion of those he's experienced or collected and published in numerous works, including The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick And The Paranormal Synchronicities of Timothy Green Beckley. Jerry, himself author of many works including the fundamental The UFO Encyclopedia, 3rd Ed., will challenge many listeners with his theories about "event" and "experience" anomalies. An entertaining and thought-provoking listen. (WM)

UFOs Seen Flying Fast Over Brazilian City During Live Newscast - Mysterious Universe
Mon, 01 Mar 2021 19:16:22 GMT
Whatever their cause, anomalous events often inflict dramatic, even lasting effects upon those who experience them. While Paul Seaburn's analysis of this particular case seems very likely, the story within the story of its immediate and later effects upon the TV presenter are interesting. Brent Swancer continues the theme with Strange Skies, Sinister Government Forces, and the UFO Wave of Virginia. Here's a classic short-lived "flap" whose repercussions followed one radio reporter for the rest of his life. Anonymous scary phone calls, a ransacked home, and "MIB-types" and hijinks may well have contributed to a life-changing heart attack. Then there's Brent Swancer's Missing Time and the Strange Alien Abduction of Robert Matthews. Years after a bizarre experience in 1966, Matthews enlisted the help of Budd Hopkins to try to recall exactly what transpired on that October night. The results were classically frightening. And yet, Brent also tells of The Councilwoman Who Was Cured of Cancer by Aliens. Though her being convinced of the "alien nature" of her encounter certainly didn't help Lynne Plaskett's political career, she and the others here chronicled all appear sane, credible, human beings who have lived through remarkable events, whose nature remains mysterious.

The René Warcollier Prize - IRVA
Mon, 01 Mar 2021 19:16:21 GMT
The International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA), in partnership with iRiS Intuition, Paris, France announce a competition for the best research proposal investigating some aspect of remote viewing. The prize is named after René Warcollier, the 19th century French chemical engineer turned parapsychologist. Remote viewing, along with psychokinesis, was also one of the research topics of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) lab headed by the late Robert Jahn, former dean of the school of Engineering at Princeton University. The documentary by Anthony Chene entitled The Primacy of Consciousness features a narration/interview with the PEAR lab's Brenda Dunne, who explains how she began to work at the lab, the results of their studies, and how it implies that consciousness is a fundamental aspect of the reality we experience.

Former Pentagon Official Lue Elizondo Reacts to American Airlines UFO Encounter - Mystery Wire
Mon, 01 Mar 2021 19:16:20 GMT
The recent flyby of "something" over an airliner in the New Mexican skies has Luis Elizondo beating the same drum about air security and safety he's promoted since leaving formal government service. This resonates with us. Paul Seaburn has certainly noted that American Airlines and the FAA Respond to Pilots' Report of UFO. Paul predicts "This long, cylindrical UFO won't be going away anytime soon." As with any robust UFO event, this one poses some "side mysteries," one of which has Keith Basterfield asking Why was the FBI Made Aware of the 21 February "Fast-moving" Cylindrical Object? He's stumped. And Kevin Randle weighs in on this angle in his The American Airlines Sightings and Other "V"-Shaped UFOs. Kevin remarks the historic nature of press and governmental agency interest in the sighting. (WM)

The Wisconsin Dogman Phenomenon: How Did it All Began? - Mysterious Universe
Mon, 01 Mar 2021 19:16:19 GMT
The answer remains officially elusive, but Nick Redfern's interview with Linda S. Godfrey, expert author and journalist who has tracked the menacing monsters of the Midwest United States for decades, provides a good primer on the original folklore from America's dairyland. In the early 1990s, Godfrey followed the local cryptid gossip from high school halls to a file drawer at the county animal control office cryptically labeled Werewolf. As she published her research, the Associated Press picked up the scent and since then Godfrey has been a hub of all things Dogman for witnesses the world over. Nick Redfern continues his dialogue with Godfrey in The Dogman: Looking at the Various Theories for What They Might Be. In true scientific fashion, again there are no final answers here when it comes to the lycanthropes' identity but the cryptozoological musing entertainingly entreats the reader to come to their own conclusion. Finally, hop across Lake Michigan to chase The Legendary 'Michigan Dogman'. Phantoms and Monsters has helpfully archived a "ripped from the presses" compendium of bipedal wolfish humanoid encounters revoked from the official record after the infamous 2007 Gable film was revealed a hoax.

How A Guy From A Montana Trailer Park Overturned 150 Years Of Biology - The Atlantic
Sun, 28 Feb 2021 19:19:43 GMT
Sometimes the most boring, and neglected, corners of science are the ones which will upset the proverbial apple cart. The oft-overlooked and humble lichen is a model of symbiosis, but how many organisms are living together in harmony? Weirder still is the chemistry which may be a source of novel compounds which may prove beneficial for humanity. Taking a left turn at Albuquerque, Ed Yong notes that our proud Montanan Toby Spribille was given a shot at university outside of the country, having a snowball's chance of admission within our fifty states, and for free. If socialized education can do something great for an American in a niche category of biology, just think of all the potential Einsteins, Hawkings, and Daystroms being lost to history thanks to a lack of access to higher education due to the laughable American "education" system, poverty, and, sadly, race.

Can The Laws Of Physics Disprove God? - The Conversation
Sun, 28 Feb 2021 19:19:42 GMT
One can not prove the non-existence of something, Monica Grady, but The Anomalist will assume your editor banged out your lede to attract clicks. Cringey atheist posturing aside, Ms Grady delves into some curious scientific and philosophical questions which notoriously haunted the fevered mind of William Corliss. From there, she pushes you down the rabbit hole of quantum weirdness, multiverses, and... Terry Pratchett? Perhaps there may be proof for the existence of a god in other phenomena? For example these 'Crop circles' Frozen Into The Surface Of An Alabama Creek Have Meteorologists, Social Media Baffled. The ice in the photo at Magnolia State Live looks like a topographic map but things are far stranger as James Spann explained on Facebook. A similar conundrum has been solved according to Kalama Hines since We Now Know The Story Behind The Shelley Crop Circle and it's absolutely delicious and it's finally back just like the McRib! Now that's proof of a kind and loving god. (CS)

Stunning Astronomical Study Indicates Our Galaxy May Be Teeming With Life - The Next Web
Sun, 28 Feb 2021 19:19:41 GMT
Where there's water, there's life according to a new study from the University of Copenhagen. Summing up the pertinent points of the thesis, Tristan Greene explains why planet formation from ice particles could be conducive to life. Cited in the study is the hypothesis of Venus, Earth, and Mars forming under similar circumstances as a tantalizing clue for aliens next door. Akshully, Until Recently, People Accepted the 'Fact' Of Aliens In The Solar System. Moreso, the existence of life on neighboring planets wasn't considered to be remarkable in the least. Have things really changed for credulous humans, or is it a phase change of belief based upon science? We trust Caleb Scharf to set things straight. Regardless if you-know-who are near or far, they'll always be welcome in Nicaragua. (record scratch) Say what? Nicaragua Creates Ministry Of Extraterrestrial Space Affairs which doesn't say much for a tinpot dictatorship nurtured by the United States during the 1950s with an atrocious record on human rights, widespread poverty, and so much more.

Internet Occultists Are Trying To Change Reality With A Magickal Algorithm - Motherboard
Sat, 27 Feb 2021 19:22:52 GMT
Surrounded by a world that doesn't care what you believe, it's unsurprising people are turning to magick as a last-ditch effort for sanity and empowerment. Somewhere out there is a Sigil Engine, don't worry Tamlin Magee links to it, to facilitate manifesting one's Will in according to the Law. Believe? Don't believe? Tamlin lays out the history of sigil magick, along with how to give it a shot. Now that we've popped your magickal cherry, why not join Jack Hunter in Exploring Shamanism, ETs, Ecology, And Spirituality with 3rd Eye Salon to really push your boundaries by exposing you to age-old ideas which may be new to you. "But The Anomalist, where are we going to score all this good stuff?" If you're not cool enough to be connected and score, Alex Tsakiris and Niles Heckman discuss Modern Shamans Harvesting DMT From Toads so you can really trip the light fantastic. On the other hand, you're probably a weirdo like Gareth Branwyn who found The Dolphin House, a documentary on John Lilly and Margaret Howe's attempts to communicate with dolphins.

The Chupacabra Lives On In San Antonio's Latino Lore, Like Our Bigfoot Or Loch Ness Monster - San Antonio Express-News
Sat, 27 Feb 2021 19:22:51 GMT
Looking beyond the terrible hoax videos and breathless yet disingenuous "documentaries" on Discovery Networks, René Guzman takes a deep dive into the cultural folklore of cryptozoology. In this case, it's all about the chupacabras. Nitpick — it's chupacabras not chupacabra. Why? Spanish is not English and the beasts are known for sucking on goats, plural, not just one single goat whose getting dried out and tired. It's a remarkably fun and informative read on the history of the chupacabras, its etymology and so-forth, to bring any normie grayface up-to-date with this notorious beast. Meanwhile Tim Binnall wonders if Bigfoot Filmed In Florida? Take a deep breath and dig this photo, and video, where sasquatch was spotted somewhere in the Florida panhandle. The footage demands one to be a believer, since the circumstances and eyewitness are unconvincing, but dare to see for yourself if there's a nugget of weird truth here. Slightly more credible are the Massive Cats Continuing To Be Spotted In Wales according to Jocelyne LeBlanc. Spotted? I thought cats tended to have stripes! Ahem. Here's more grist for the alien big cat mill, and it carries a lot of weight considering how the phenomena of ABCs endure throughout the United Kingdom. (CS)

Listen As Ghostly Child's Voice Calls For Help From 'Haunted' Mirror - Staffordsire Live

While the video Helen Kreft is sharing doesn't measure up to the film Poltergeist, but if you believe or you're getting on a Saturday buzz then see if Ian Griffiths's experiment passes your muster or not. The ever-credulous Tim Binnall's still on a tear with little kids having spooky encounters, and the latest footage appears to show a Ghost Pulling A Girl Under A Bed. Amidst all this sketchy footage floating through the internet, phantoms are a real problem in the real world. Consider Angela McLelllan's tale of woe because Owners Can't Sell Maine's Homeport Inn because there are too many ghosts. Never mind the pandemic continues apace, the housing market is flatter than a raccoon on the Garden State Parkway, but Jocelyne LeBlanc can't blame anyone for crying ghost in hopes of drumming up interest in their property.

Why Dying Can Bring You Back To Life: A Psychiatry Professor Has Spent 50 Years Studying Accounts of Near-Death Experien...
Fri, 26 Feb 2021 19:26:31 GMT
Bruce Greyson has been studying near-death and out-of-body experiences ever since he encountered a comatose 20-year-old student at a hospital in Virginia as a doctor-in-training five decades ago. When she regained consciousness, she related, quite impossibly, the conversion the young doctor had had with her roommate in an interview room down the corridor. Now as a professor emeritus of psychiatry and neurobehavioral sciences at the University of Virginia, Greyson has written a highly personal memoir of his life-long research into the subject entitled After: A Doctor Explores What Near Death Experience Reveal About Life and Beyond. Christopher Stevens of the Daily Mail concludes: “With so much evidence available for further investigation, the most vexing question now is not whether life continues in some form after we die, but why mainstream science is so resistant to the idea.“ (PH)

The Kingman, Arizona UFO Crash Case -- Historian Harry Drew Searches for the Truth - Spectral Vision
Fri, 26 Feb 2021 19:26:30 GMT
A relatively famous "non-Roswell" alleged UFO crash case gets a look from Timothy Green Beckley and Sean Casteel. While a key witness swearing an affidavit under an assumed name seems questionable, what follows is an entertaining discussion of the several Kingman episodes with Harry Drew, who indicates "there is always something more to discover around the original Kingman, Arizona, crash sites." Over in North Carolina, The Brown Mountain Lights: A Historical Inquiry covers a long-running phenomenon. Micah Hanks dedicates this podcast to the memory of Robert Ashmore, a prime Lights researcher. Another long-time strange location gets more publicity in Post Malone Visits Skinwalker Ranch with the Owner by Duncan Phenix. The piece features a segment of a Post Malone interview with Joe Rogan that indicates how UFO news sometimes gets interpreted outside of the immediate "Community." (WM)

Creatures That May Have Lived Longer Than We Thought: The Mammoth, Part 1 - Mysterious Universe
Fri, 26 Feb 2021 19:26:29 GMT
Nick Redfern offers his perspective on the theory that woolly mammoths may have survived well past the Jurassic era and into relatively modern times. In this and his second installment on the topic, Creatures That May Have Lived Longer Than We Thought: The Mammoth, Part 2, he examines anecdotal evidence of encounters with the massive beasts. While some of the accounts may well have been real, and allow us to entertain the possibility of a small breeding population of mastodons, others are too embellished and fantastical to entertain in any serious way. Redfern maintains that it is the domain of any fortean to decide for themselves what does or does not smack of truth. Skepticism is after all, not only healthy, it is timeless. (CM)

Exclusive Interview with Anthony Bragalia on the Pentagon Papers - Maussan TV
Fri, 26 Feb 2021 19:26:28 GMT
The center of the recent kerfuffle about whether five Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRDs) released to Bragalia actually related to UFO materials offers his first ever interview to Mexican journalist and rather controversial ufologist Jaime Maussan. Bragalia "doubles down" on claims about the correct interpretation and import of the response to his Freedom of Information requests. Three of the documents had already gone public per Keith Basterfield's The Defense Intelligence Agency Releases Two More AAWSAP Defense Intelligence Reference Documents. Bragalia asserts a distinction reinforcing his own initiative's importance, and solicits the help of listeners to pressure the Pentagon. Micah Hanks allots the second half of a podcast to this debate and the larger matter of UFO researchers' interpretations while discussing UFO Evidence: Angel Hair and Mystery Metals. Hanks notes Robert Bigelow's assertion to George Knapp that "We never had any" supposed UFO/UAP materials during the Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies work for the Pentagon. But last year's July 23rd New York Times article No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon's U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public reported that Eric Davis' examination of some stuff "led him to conclude, 'We couldn't make it ourselves.'" So Has Government Compartmentalization Lost UFO Materials? Tom Rogan and Michael Mataluni share their thoughts on this possibility. (WM)

American Airlines Confirms Encounter With Unidentified Cylindrical Object Over New Mexico - The Drive
Thu, 25 Feb 2021 19:29:38 GMT
A follow-up to the Tyler Rogoway article we reviewed two days ago authenticates and reproduces the relevant portion of an audio from an "outright strange incident" on Feb. 21. A cylindrical object overflew an Airbus flying at 36,000 feet. After a fashion American Airlines confirmed the event, and offered that the FBI is apparently investigating the matter. Rogoway expected and received information from the FAA, as he details in FAA Releases Statement On Airliner's Encounter With Unidentified Object Over New Mexico. Tyler's a little disappointed with the FAA statement, but is not done with his efforts. He also considers, and tentatively rejects, the explanation Metabunker Mick West proffers of a Learjet. The person who originally recorded the audio offers more background to ABC's David Furtado in Radio Picks up Close Encounter over New Mexico. (WM)

Scots Psychic Snaps 'Ghost of Girl' At Scots Castle Where She 'Smelt Rotting Meat' - Daily Record
Thu, 25 Feb 2021 19:29:37 GMT
The cynics among us might feel inclined to a little eye-rolling at this poorly-written tartan tale, in which a "young spiritualist developed a love of exploring abandoned places just before she fell pregnant at 19." Quite how these two events are connected or relevant to what seems to be pareidolia isn't clear, but the writer of the piece perhaps should seek his own niche in life and preferably one which doesn't involve written communication. And we're not done with the eye-rolling yet, thanks to a Ghostly Monk Captured on Camera at Haunted Conisbrough Castle, but good luck in finding him on the pics to which the article links. And finally, a 'Ghost Child' Calls For Help From 'Haunted' Mirror In Derbyshire, according to a local "psychic medium" who found it all rather spooky. But what else should be expected from a haunted mirror? (LP)
