THE NEVER-ENDING BATTLE BETWEEN BELIEVERS AND DEBUNKERS  by Sean Casteel. Is it possible to literally “speak” to the dead? Can a gifted medium actually help us to converse with a loved one who has passed on? The supreme logician, Arthur Conan Doyle, believed it IS possible, while his rival, the magician Harry Houdini, decried the practice as a cruel fraud. Read the story of their sometimes bitter feud in “Revealing the Bizarre Powers of Harry Houdini.” More…

ARISTOCRAT VAMPIRES WELL-TO-DO CORPSE MEDICINE  by Peter Fotis Kapnistos. “They have long been famed for their love of lavish banquets and rich recipes. But what is less well known is that the British royals also had a taste for human flesh.” Two 2011 books on medicinal cannibalism (or blood medicine) have revealed that British royalty routinely swallowed parts of the human body.  More…

THE BILLY MEIER SPACE PHOTOS CONTROVERSY  by Michael Horn. Somewhere, 1,340 photographs taken in outer space by Billy Meier in 1975, are in the possession of certain parties most likely affiliated with the CIA…America’s actual secret government. The people who stole those photographs know a few things. They know that Billy Meier’s contacts with extraterrestrials, ongoing now for over 72 years, are authentic. They also know – but probably don’t want to accept – the fact that the best laid, most nefarious, deadly and misguided plans for world domination set in motion decades ago…are doomed to failure. And there’s no gloating here because that failure effectively means extremely bad things for the people of this country…and many others. More…

THE TRIBUTE TO OUR JESTER – THE PLANTARD TAROT OF RENNES-LE-CHATEAU  by Mary Alice Bennett. Look closely at the original Jester or Fool card from the Marseilles French deck and it is obvious that this character portrays a member of the Saracen forces who fought the Templars. His skin tone is different, darker, and he is wearing a huge turban. More...

COULD WASHINGTON D.C. BE PROTECTED BY ANCIENT EGYPTIAN TECHNOLOGY?  by T. H. Hughes. For many decades, perhaps earlier than that even, people in the Washington DC area have noticed a strange occurrence when it comes to their local weather. Specifically, severe storms mostly in the summer when on a direct course to impact the District of Columbia tend to break or split apart at the last minute. Local weathermen have been asked about this many times. Acknowledging that the phenomenon does exist and occurs frequently, their usual explanation is that the storms split apart due to the heat island effect. This effect is caused by the concentration of structures and buildings of Washington giving off more heat than the surrounding area. Yet we generally do not see this with other cities. Storms generally tend to intensify over cities. More…

STRANGE HUMANOID ENCOUNTERS WITH TRANSIENT VISITORS  by Scott Corrales. At some point in the 1990s I had a conversation with Dr. Rafael A. Lara Palmeros, director of research for Mexico’s C.E.F.P organization regarding the motives of individuals who develop an unhealthy attraction to UFO and paranormal phenomena. Dr. Lara mentioned a case involving a certain gentleman from Central Mexico who openly expressed his wish to be “contacted by aliens”, as that would be the solution to all his problems, real or imagined. He went as far as to offer money – not small amounts, ether – to any researcher, contactee or psychic who could make his wish come true. More.

WILL THE VATICAN ANNOUNCE BELIEF IN EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE?  by Robert D Morningstar. For decades the Vatican has convened some of the brightest minds in the scientific community around the world to ponder the possibility of extraterrestrial life, and to prepare a public disclosure on behalf of the Catholic Church in case the existence of aliens is confirmed. More…

THE LONG ISLAND ORBS OF AUGUST 15, 2014  by Cheryl Costa. This story is about two interesting and perhaps related UFO sighting incidents on Long Island. The first sighting was at about 10 p.m. in North Babylon, NY located in Suffolk County. Harvey, a local resident, was walking up his drive way that evening and per chance glanced up and observed three red orbs. He tells us that for more than fifteen minutes he observed these objects several different times. More

UPROAR IN VALLE FERTIL OVER ALLEGED UFO IN ARGENTINA by Scott Corrales. Residents of the department of Valle Fertil report seeing a UFO flying over the area on Thursday afternoon. It vanished two hours later. Photos have appeared on social media showing a light in the sky, and local residents affirm that it is the unidentified flying object. Furthermore, minutes before the alleged UFO’s manifestation, there was a slight tremor that frightened the locals, who related it to the subsequent event. More…

ENCOUNTER AT EDWARDS by Jeff Krause. One of the most troubling aspects of the whole UFO phenomena to me, are the numerous accounts of encounters on military installations, and the subsequent cover up’s, and improper treatment of personnel involved. This is a practice that began within days of the crash at Roswell, when President Truman ordered the creation of the National Security Council by Public Law 80-253, approved on July 26, 1947, and thus the lid was successfully clamped down on the biggest event in the history of the world! More…

THE WONDERFUL WONDROUS GOLDEN AGE by Louis Hart. Back on a certain date in the year 2012 it was believed that great changes were to happen to this planet and its residents. Do you remember? There were three schools of thought as to what would take place. One group believed it was the beginning of a wonderful new golden age. That there would be a total overnight change in consciousness and everyone would awaken the next day with hearts so full of love that they were about to burst. More…

BOOK REVIEW ON SPIRITUAL LIBERATION by Ron Murdock . “Surrender to life. Allow life to lead you, don’t try to lead life. Don’t try to manipulate and control life. Let life possess you. You simply surrender. You give total power to life and be with it.” – Lao-Tzu. I first heard of Michael Beckwith when I read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Beckwith had made some contributions to the book along with a short bio of his at the end of the book. Not long afterwards I wrote an article on home Churches for UFO Digest. A person responded to my article and recommended that I check out what Michael Beckwith had to say. Finally I was able to get my hands on a book written by Beckwith, this being Spiritual Liberation. I started reading it to find out for myself on what Beckwith had to say.. More… Also read: BOOK REVIEW ON SPIRITUAL LIBERATION (Part II)
