Bizarre and Amazing Cases of Real Talking Animals

One goal of many researchers and scientists in recent times has been the pursuit of communication between animals and human beings, trying to somehow bridge our disparate worlds. While animals obviously communicate with each other in a vast array of ways, there are many who have asked the question of whether there is some method to speak between species, and to this end there have been some positive steps taken, for instance the use of sign language in great apes or programs pursuing communication with dolphins. Yet beyond this is there a way that animals can actually speak language and use it Continue Reading

The story of Carl Edon – The most compelling evidence of reincarnation

Amongst all things paranormal, stories of past life memories and reincarnation have often fascinated me. There have been a number of stories from people who believe they have lived before. They believe that they have memories of a previous life and some even remember how they died. Their memories usually start from a young age, they remember events happening in the past life or places and buildings which no longer exist but after some research its found that they did once exist many years before they were born. Whether these people have actually been reborn or maybe we are all reborn Continue Reading

Grafton Elliot Smith, The Orang Pendek, and Mysterious Fossil Finds

Grafton Elliot Smith History is littered with amazing findings that have been lost to time and potential groundbreaking discoveries that have somehow fallen into the background. In the 1800s and early 1900s, there were supposedly some rather amazing such findings by a well-respected scientist, but which have nevertheless been downplayed or faded with time. It is a rather interesting historical journey by a man who may or may not have had a great impact on the field of cryptozoology and archaeology, but which is intriguing nevertheless. Grafton Elliot Smith was born in 1871, and was an Australian-British anatomist, anthropologist, and archaeologist Continue Reading

Bizarre and Frightening Accounts of Bigfoot Attacks

One of the most well-known and widely discussed cryptids of all time are the mysterious hairy, ape-like giants of North America, which are variously called the Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, Grassman, and other regional names. Seen all over the continent, they may differ in appearance or behavior, but one thing that is usually consistent is that for all of their size and strength they seem to be mostly peaceful and benevolent denizens of the forest, much more likely to run away or hide than to confront. Yet there have been many accounts from at least the 19th century all the way Continue Reading

Ancient Indian Petroglyph Depicts Mysterious Twin Suns in Earth’s Skies

Archaeologists in India believe the might have found the oldest known depiction of celestial objects in a curious example of ancient rock art. The etched stone was found at the Burzahom archaeological site in India’s Kashmir Valley. The stone was unearthed during a 1969 excavation, but has puzzled archaeologists ever since due to its enigmatic depiction of what appears to be two large objects in the sky, possibly twin suns or twin moons. Now, a new study claims that the mysterious carving may depict a particularly bright supernova which occurred around 4,500 BC. Is the Burzahom carving a record of an Continue Reading

First ‘Mind-Reading’ AI Can Literally See Your Thoughts

Last month, AI researchers at computing hardware manufacturer Nvidia developed a neural network which was able to ‘imagine’ scenes or images it had never seen before. This, naturally, led to a great deal of nervous hand-wringing by neo-Luddites worried that artificial intelligence will somehow make human beings obsolete or begin to distort our perception of reality in strange, terrifying new ways. Now, a team of Japanese computer scientists has taken things one step further into the nightmare realm by developing an AI that can literally see your thoughts. As usual, I just have to wonder: what could go wrong? As usual, Continue Reading

DNA of ‘Sunrise Girl-Child’ Reveals Origin of First Native Americans

“This could change everything” is a phrase that gets used far too often for unmerited discoveries, but this one deserves the superlative and more. “The study provides the first direct genomic evidence that all Native American ancestry can be traced back to the same source population during the last Ice Age.” Researchers studying the 11.500-year-old remains of an infant girl found in central Alaska were able to extract DNA from her skull and trace the genome to a previously unknown group of people that branched off from the first Native Americans either right after or right before they crossed the Bering Continue Reading

When Lightning Strikes: Unusual Lightning-Related Deaths, Past and Present

“Lightning never strikes twice,” or at least the saying goes. However, in 2017 it seems that first strikes were down in numbers as well, to the credit of lightning strike awareness campaigns. According to the National Weather Service, there were just 16 people killed by lightning strikes in the United States in 2017, the lowest number since record-keeping on lightning-related deaths began in 1940. These numbers are down significantly from those early years of record keeping; in 1943 alone, 432 victims of lightning strikes were reported. USA Today reports that in 2001, the NWS began upping the ante on awareness of Continue Reading

Mini Ice Age May Be Just Five Years Away

It’s the end of 2017 — time to look ahead to a better 2018 and beyond … unless you’re a mathematician working on models to predict ice ages, climate change and other things many would prefer not to believe in – models or not. However, if you fear the literal definition of ‘global warming’, this might be for you. A Russian mathematician working in the UK says her model, which she claims has a 97% accuracy rate, predicts a mini ice age beginning in 2021 and lasting for 33 years, dropping temperatures enough to put Britain’s rivers in a permanent freeze.

Mysterious Blue Snow Puzzles Russians in St. Petersburg

By Paul Seaburn It’s the hometown of Russia’s president Vladimir Putin, so anything unusual happening there gets high attention. So what kind of attention do you think a blue snowfall got? How about blue mixed with some deep purple snow? The strange-colored snow fell on Russia’s second-largest city on December 26th. The St. Petersburg Internet news source www.fontanka.ru reported that approximately 1 cm (0.39 inches) fell on that date, covering the ground, roofs, cars, windowsills and plants. “Eyewitnesses specify that it is not distributed evenly – by waves, as if the “paint” was blown off somewhere and blown by a wind rose.

Santa’s Horned Helper: The Fearsome Legend of Krampus, Christmas Punisher

In ancient times, a dark, hairy, horned beast was said to show up at the door to beat children, and carry them off in his sharp claws. The Krampus could be heard in the night by the sound of his echoing cloven hooves and his rattling iron chains. The strangest part was that he was in league with Santa Claus. The Christmas Terror The unnerving beast was no demon, however. He was the mythical Krampus, companion to Saint Nicholas (known as Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, etc.) While Saint Nicholas now has the reputation of loving all children and visiting Continue Reading
