200-Million-Year-Old Cocoon with Bizarre Creature Inside

By Jeanna Bryner LiveScience Managing Editor

About 200 million years ago, a leech released a slimy mucous cocoon that unwittingly encased and trapped a bizarre animal with a springy tail, preserving it until researchers discovered the teardrop-shaped creature in Antarctica recently.

The cocoon looks like those produced by living leeches, such as the medicinal leech Hirudo medicinalis. Encased inside was a bell animal that looked similar to species in the genus Vorticella; its body extends 25 microns (about the width of some human hairs) with a tightly coiled stalk about twice that long. And like all eurkaryotes, the organism was equipped with a nucleus -- in this case, a large horseshoe-shaped nucleus inside the main body. (A micron is one-millionth of a meter.)

This bell animal lived during the Late Triassic Period, when the Earth was much warmer, with dense rain forests flourishing along what is today the Transantarctic Mountain Range where it was found. At the time, Antarctica was part of the supercontinent Gondwana, though it was still located at high latitudes.

Past research has suggested this coiled stalk, which is used to attach to substrates, may be one of the fastest cellular engines known, changing from a telephone wire-like structure to a tight coil at a speed of about 8 centimeters (3.1 inches) per second -- the equivalent of a human being walking the across more than three football fields in one second. [See Photos of the Bizarre Vorticella Creature]

Preserving soft tissue

Possibly even more amazing is the fact that this soft-bodied, microscopic creature survived the vagaries of time. Preserving a soft-bodied organism like this one for so long is tricky and requires some outside intervention to keep the tissues from degrading. In this case, rather than tree resin (called amber when hardened) that preserved dino DNA in the bellies of amber-trapped mosquitoes in "Jurassic Park," a mucous cocoon did the trick.

"This preservation is quite bizarre, but soft-bodied organisms cannot usually become fossilized unless they are rapidly entombed in a medium that prevents further decay," study researcher and paleobotanist Benjamin Bomfleur, of the Biodiversity Institute at the University of Kansas, told LiveScience.

Here's how the researchers think the hasty preservation took place: "A leech secreted a mucous cocoon that was deposited under water or in wet leaf litter, somewhere in a river system which lay in present-day Antarctica," Bomfleur said. This bell animal must have used its long, rapidly contracting stalk to attach itself to the cocoon soon after, becoming trapped and completely encased by the still-slimy cocoon, which hardened over hours to days.

"The cocoon with the such-enclosed bell animal then was deposited in mud that over time turned into the sedimentary layer where we found it some 200 million years later," Bomfleur explained.

The only other example of this type of preservation comes from a 125-million-year-old cocoon encasing a nematode worm and discovered in Svalbard.

Identifying the bizarre creature

When Bomfleur first noticed the tiny animal in samples he'd collected from Antarctica, he didn't know what he was looking at and didn't have time to consult with an expert in such microfossils, as he was working on his doctoral degree.

"Later this year, however, I finally found the time to look for someone with an expertise on freshwater microorganisms in order to get an expert opinion on the thing," Bomfleur said, adding he contacted Ojvind Moestrup of the University of Copenhagen.

Bomfleur recalled Moestrup looking at the fossil and saying, "It is often very hard or impossible to identify microfossils, but this one was easy. It is the ciliate Vorticella and the helical structure is the stalk."

Bomfleur and his colleagues detailed their research this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Possible UFOs over Denver

By Mike Krumboltz | The Sideshow

Straight out of the X Files comes this clip from Denver's Fox 31. Last week, a viewer sent the station a video of something ... something spooky. A flying object was buzzing in the sky, and it looked like maybe it was carrying little green men.

Was it really a UFO? Suspecting the clip was a prank, the TV station sent out its own photojournalist to see if he could document the same weirdness on his own. Guess what? He did.

Fox 31 aired the footage and interviewed several experts in the field. None could identify the flying object. Aviation expert Steve Cowell told Fox 31's investigative reporter Heidi Hemmat, "That is not an airplane, that is not a helicopter, those are not birds, I can't identify it." Cowell, while mystified, did come up with a less mysterious possibility. "Perhaps there is some sort of debris that is being raised by atmospheric winds."

The New York Daily News quotes UFO expert Robert Sheaffer, author of "UFO Sightings." On his blog, Sheaffer writes, "The 'UFOs' appear at least several times a week [for months], we are told, usually around noon to 1 PM. Most flying insects become more active during the warmest part of the day."

Discovery News writer Benjamin Radford thinks bugs are likely the answer. "There are many obvious holes in the spacecraft explanation, not the least of which is that it's amazing that no one in Denver apparently noticed the extraterrestrial spacecraft launching and landing in the skies over the downtown area in the middle of the day. The most likely explanation? A bug or insect, probably a fly or bee."

Check out the clip and judge for yourself. Sure, it's probably a bug, but we much prefer the idea of aliens dropping by (the "E.T." kind, not the "Alien" kind).

Hikers take flight when what they thought was a bear resembles Bigfoot

By:Pete Thomas,

When the black bear you think you're looking at from a safe distance suddenly stands and begins to resemble bigfoot, and that creature stares directly at you, how do you react? The hikers who captured the accompanying footage recently in Utah's Provo Canyon seemed to act appropriately: They bolted through the woods, with the camera still running, to get as far away from the creature as possible. "We ran straight to the car after that, leaving our tent and everything behind. "It's probably all still up there," states Beard Card, the YouTube user who posted the video. This is one of the more realistic Bigfoot escapades in some time.

Naturally, skeptics are analyzing the video in the hopes of finding an explanation. Yet even healthy cynics are pretty impressed with what they see. They note that the witnesses don't appear to be acting. If they were, the skeptics say, they'd likely be a lot more vocal, and fall into the overacting trap. (Watch this video for full breakdown.) They also didn't stick around to get a great shot, which also rings of a very natural reaction, but didn't help when it came to capturing a better image.Nevertheless, the shot of what clearly looks like the animals big broad arms is extremely compelling, which is why Max Roth of Fox 13 caught up with Beard Card to talk about the incredible encounter. Card told Roth how they were standing there for a good chunk of time even before recording what they believed to be a bear at the time, while he was trying to get the camera to work. During their exchange, Card hit on their reaction. Here are a few excerpts.
CARD: "But when it stood up and looked at us--and we assumed it was a bear up to that point--but, when it stood up and looked at us, it was this massive animal. We don't know what it was. I mean, none of us believe in Bigfoot, so...we've talked about it over and over again since Monday when it happened and all of us are positive that thing wasn't a bear."

ROTH: "You're not a Bigfoot guy?

CARD: "Nope...none of us have ever believed in that kind of thing."

ROTH: "So what do you think it was?"

CARD: "I don't know!...We don't know what it was...I don't know if Bigfoot exist or not but that was a huge animal."

Below is an enhanced version of the video.

Whether this is an elaborate prank, or something really scary we don't know for sure. But for the full interview with Card, and more debate on the incident, it's hard to beat the Bigfoot Evidence blog, where believers and non-believers routinely square off.

Lost Civilisations: Mesopotamia

The great civilizations of Sumer, Babylonia, and Assyria are covered in this episode. Throughout the episode, we continue with the question of how Mesopotamia was related to biblical stories. We get a nice comparison between the myths of ancient Mesopotamia and the bible. More in depth, we focus on a discovery in the site of Kumran in Israel, the Dead Sea Scrolls, which include some of the earliest versions of the Old Testament. The ties with Biblical Archeology and Mesopotamia is evident when we view how these earlier archeologists wanted to prove the existence of places mentioned in the bible. The discovery of the Moabite Stone was among the earliest finds that confirmed the existence of place names mentioned in the bible and this kind of discovery eventually lead archeologists to the Middle East in droves in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and led to Iraq. Present day Iraq is the home to the bulk of the civilizations that made up ancient Mesopotamia. We next move to Babylonia, whose capital was Babylon. The site was excavated in the 1800s and was yet another confirmation of Biblical Archeology. The ties here have to do with the "babylonian captivity" of the Israelites by Nebuchadnezzer. The film then moves on the to the discovery of the Assyrians ancient capital of Ninevah. Finally, we end up at the most ancient site of ancient Mesopotamia, the civilization of Sumer, about 3000 BC. It is here that the episode attempts to tie in the concept of an ancient "garden of eden ...

Why do many people dismiss "chemtrails" as a crazy conspiracy when there's historic events events like these?

Question by dumdum: Why do many people dismiss "chemtrails" as a crazy conspiracy when there's historic events events like these?
The spraying from planes of toxic CADMIUM over England--without people's knowledge! And the government waited for years and carefully documented cases of cancer deaths and made maps of the cancer cluster in that area--which was much higher than the national average.

With cases like these, why do many still assume that this could never happen again?
Cody The Conservative: I don't think it's a waste of time because the more people who know, the more people will be united and can have more power to change things. If it's only a few people, they can continue to ignore the complaints and concerns by saying it's just a "conspiracy theory."

Giant Gang Member Tries To Kidnap Little Boy

Victor Joseph Espinoza, a 425-pound gang member with an equally large rap sheet, is a accused of attempting to kidnap a 10-year-old boy on his way to soccer practice Friday evening, KABC reports.

Police in Santa Ana, Calif., said that Espinoza, 55, allegedly approached the boy and his 19-year-old cousin as they were walking to a local park. Espinoza grabbed the boy by both arms and pulled him close to his body. The boy managed to break free after a struggle, and ran to alert his soccer coach, who went looking for Espinoza.

"The little boy came crying at me, saying that man wanted to take him. He said that he grabbed him and he started smelling him," the coach, who wished to remain anonymous, told ABC Los Angeles. "I'm a parent, I worry about my kids, and I thought that I had to do something."

According to CBS Los Angeles, the coach found Espinoza by a bike trail, confronted him, and attempted to restrain him, but the suspect escaped.

In infrared footage from a police helicopter, Espinoza can be seen crouching under a tree in the backyard of a nearby home shortly before police arrest him.

KCAL reported that the abduction attempt happened in a well-lit park with many parents and soccer players around, and that Espinoza had attempted to abduct another child, a girl, earlier that evening. She also got away.

Santa Ana police office Antony Bertagna described Espinoza to ABC News as an "old school, old time gangster" with more than 60 prior arrests over 30 years. Some of Espinoza's prior arrests include drug possession, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder, according to Bertagna.

Espinoza is being held on $ 100,000 bail, and faces charges of false imprisonment, child annoyance, and added charges since he is a known gang member.

On-Going UFO Sightings in Otway, NC - Sep. 21, 2012 "The unidentified flying object was sighted Tuesday and Wednesday night over Otway, which is near Beaufort in Carteret County. Witnesses describe the object as six orange glowing lights that rotate into a V-shape, then slowly disappear. "It was six lights in a straight line (that were) above everything else," Otway resident Jonathon Willis said. Willis said his friends first spotted the object Tuesday. "I didn't really believe it at first, but last night proved me wrong," Willis said. "Something is out there." According to base officials at MCAS Cherry Point, MAW squadrons participate in night flights that sometimes involve illumination exercises. The training includes slow moving flares that could appear to "hover" as they glide down, First Lt. Hector Alejandro wrote in an e-mail to Newschannel 12. Alejandro said the training is performed on ranges, but could be seen from areas as far as Otway. Despite the explanation, some residents still attribute the sightings to extraterrestrial life."

Q&A: What exactly are "chemtrails" ?? Because I saw it yesterday!?

Question by Donnie Anderson: What exactly are "chemtrails" ?? Because I saw it yesterday!?
I've heard of something called the chemtrail phenomenon thats some how associated with the UFO phenomenon. Anyways, I never got to read up exactly what they are but planes flying in the sky leaving a trail of something behind it and no I'm not talking about jets. Jets have a trail but its small and goes away fast so its fairly short behind the jet flying. The chemtrail thing is the planes fly and leave it behind and it stretches all the way across the sky in a straight line. Anyways, can anyone explain further? and what does it have to do with UFOs?

VERY Bad Cop: Sergeant Gets In Trouble Over Racy Photos

She was not in uniform when she committed the offense.

Stacey Suro, 42, has been relieved of her duty as a sergeant with the Houston Police Department after officials discovered an assortment of risque photos Suro had allegedly posted online, KPRC reports.

Suro had over 100 photos of herself on her Model Mayhem page, some featuring her in revealing outfits and others showing her nude. Some of the photographs involved fetish and bondage content, according to the network's website.

Until the investigation is complete, the department cannot say whether or not Suro will be fired.

Q&A: What are some atheist perspectives on hauntings?

What are some atheist perspectives on hauntings?Question by Mark: What are some atheist perspectives on hauntings?
As a Catholic Christian I have my own opinions and theories about hauntings; that is, the seeming presence of some kind of echo or intelligent existence of a deceased person or persons who are able to interact with the living.

While I fully realize that atheists do not believe in a deity and largely do not believe in an afterlife, do any of you have beliefs about ghosts, haunted locations, etc?

Some have described "hauntings" as nothing more than some kind of electromagnetic recording within a building or area that "plays back" kinetic effects, as if the building itself functioned like a gigantic video or audio recording device. Others believe that, as the human mind operates on bioelectric energy, that some aspects of our existence are embedded into a location.

Of course, some atheists may very well believe that the spirits (or the animated intellect, or whatever you'd like to refer to it as) of the dead can exist in an environment and interact with the living. I honestly don't know, ergo my question.

I myself do believe in the presence of spirits and the manifestation of those who are no longer physically alive. I believe that they exist as a part of God's overall plan, or that they may be a reflection of the brokenness of the world due to the Original Sin of Adam. I know many of my Christian brethren have different opinions on this, but I've never heard what the atheists among us think.

And please, if you're just going to say "it's stupid to even ask" or "I haunted your mom last night" or some other pathetic attempt at humor save it. This is a question for mature people of different belief systems.

UFO Files - Alien Abductions: The Evidence - Part 1 of 5

An investigation of the 'alien abduction' phenomena. Over a million people have reported being victims of so-called alien abductions, UFO visitations, missing time and other related events. Some even claim to have had physical implants inserted in them by the extra terrestrials. Some say it's a sinister plot to colonize and secretly breed with the human race by beings from another world, while others say it's really a covert government 'mind control' program which uses aliens and UFO's as convenient cover. Or maybe it's just a distinctly human condition, a paranoia or mental illness, as the skeptics claim. One thing is for sure, for millions of people around the world, alien abductions are as real as it gets. We talk to the victims, the witnesses, the scientists, the believers and the skeptics, to try and get to the bottom of the mystery. We analyze the 'implants', we visit the 'support groups' and we test the 'abductees' with a Polygraph 'lie detector' test. An in depth investigation of a fascinating phenomena.

EVP: An Unbelievable Response

On paranormal investigations the use of control questions is an important part of all ghost box and EVP recording sessions. A control question is basicly asking something to which there can be only one possible correct answer to determine whether or not you are communicating with an intelligent life form. In this short video I used such a question and got more than I bargained for. Was this voice caught on tape showing intelligence, was it a spirit answering my question precisely, was it just co incidence?EVP or electronic voice phenomena as it is known is thought to be voices of those passed away trying to communicate with us captured on electronic devices. When trying to capture EVP, you can sit and ask questions or leave an audio recording device in a quiet room. When you play these recordings back, sometimes you will hear disembodied voices that were not present at the time, answering your questions or talking in general. This area of paranormal research was popularised when the film White Noise was released in 2005 starring Michael Keaton. The most popular method of capturing EVP is by using ordinary tape or digital audio dictaphone's or recording devices. One of the pioneers in this field was Dr Konstantin Raudive (1909 - 1974) and his experiments are still much talked about today.

Q&A: Spontaneous combustion?

Question by Malachi: Spontaneous combustion?
One wonders if we continue to stroke TR's ego enough and said swelling head continues to grow...will TR spontaneously combust?

Would this be an "unexplained paranormal phenomenon" or could this indeed be explained away by scientific fact?

My own view is one of practical faith. I once had a man tell me that "God was going to strike him down for sinning...." as I was looking for a little more clarification, I consulted my physically challenged friends -- the response I received was a vision of the man standing before me; then *poof* all that was left were some smoking boots and I heard a snicker.

I took took this to mean "If *God* wanted to strike him down; he'd of done it already." So logic tells me that it is more likely a chemical response rather than a Divine Intervention...'cuz knowing the Powers That Be, as I do -- over half us would have blown up by now.
Interesting,I would have never thought Kundalini energy would be brought up as a consideration for spontaneous combustion...but I could see where people might think so; my tummy has gotten warm before.

The 5 Most Ridiculously Unnecessary Modern Inventions

They say necessity is the mother of invention. What they neglect to mention is that invention's dad is a moron and he sometimes pops by the house with a new piece of shit idea that's so staggeringly awful that he takes your silent awe as approval when in fact you're trying to think of a new way to say "What the fuck?" that is at once louder and more vulgar, and somehow requires the assistance of noted scholars and theologians.

People invent awful stuff all the time, and while there were a lot of really kitschy patents around the turn of the last century, you'd think that the dumb idea bank would be getting full up in modern times. But it looks like there's still room for people to squeeze one or two new turds through.

The Ongoing Story of the Loch Ness Monster

The Ongoing Story of the Loch Ness Monster

3_61_loch_ness_monsterLoch Ness is located in the North of Scotland and is one of a series of interlinked loch's which run along the great Glen. For many years now this has been the home of likely the most famous lake monster in history the "Loch Ness Monster" or better know as "Nessie". There have been nessie sightings going on in the loch for at least the last 100 years. Through many sightings and media reports the legend of nessie has continued to grow throughout the years.

Loch Ness is a massive loch reaching twenty two and a half miles long and between one and one and a half miles wide with depths in the range of 750-800 ft. It is the largest fresh water body of water in Britain. The loch is thought to have been connected to the ocean at two different points in history lending credence to the fact that large creatures could have become trapped in the loch. The size and depth of this great loch made it extremely difficult to explore even with modern technology. This alone helps to feed the possibility of there being a yet undiscovered creature inhabiting loch ness even today.

The sighting of nessie and various reports have offered an array of photo's and descriptions of the creature through out the years. Many reports have been published and details made public from as far back as 1933 by locals Mr & Mrs Mackay who spotted the creature while driving down the lochside and in 1934 on April 19th which is one of the most well known nessie sightings to date. This sighting was reported by Robert Kenneth Wilson and it was this sighting that produced the "Surgeons Photo" which is now a widely recognisable photo (shown above). This photo has had the most impact on the nessie legend over the last 66 years and brought up many many debates on its authenticity. This photo fueled the idea that the creature in the loch may be a thought to be extinct Plesiosaur. In 1960 Tim Dinsdale is credited with taking what is now considered to be the greatest piece of evidence proving the existence of Nessie. On April 23rd after being on the lake for several days exploring he took a 16MM camera video of the creature moving across the loch and then turning parallel to the far shore and headed down the loch before running out of film. The film was later developed and instantly became proof of some unknown animal inhabiting the loch. This film was further studied by the RAF in 1966 and a conclusion was made that it was not a surface vessel of any kind but some animate object in Loch Ness.

The debate goes on among scientist as to the question of the loch having enough food to sustain a breading population of such large creatures. Some scientist claim that studies done of the loch's food chain show 1-27 tonnes and many say that is simply not enough to feed such a population of creatures. Although other do argue that the large amounts of salmon that migrate into the loch each year along with the large amounts of eels could easily boost these food source numbers and easily sustain a food source over the years for such creatures.

With the amount of sightings from people living on the loch all there lives and visitors abound its hard to deny that there is something very interesting and mysterious about Loch Ness whether that be Nessie or not. The only thing that can be done is to continue to research the loch and take into account the new sightings and stories and keep a close eye out for the piece of evidence that can one day prove the creatures existence.

Does Loch Ness contain the creature everyone has become enchanted with? Does Nessie truly exist and is just waiting to be discovered?

Loch Ness Monster - One of the Most Famous Creatures of Cryptozoology

Loch Ness Monster - One of the Most Famous Creatures of Cryptozoology

loch_ness_monster_05For a long time the Loch Ness Monster has been a creature of cryptozoology that has been sighted in the Lake (Loch) Ness in Scotland. This creature resembles a large aquatic serpent plesiosaur, which today is best known as Nessie, a nickname given by its fans, whether existing or not, the monster is a celebrity today. In fact, there are video cams and web cams on different points of the lake waiting for Nessie to be caught. Many people have relocated to tents and mobile homes nearby waiting for the long time awaited "idol" in which there is a reward for whoever sees him arise from the depth of the waters either live or through the cams installed for that purpose.

There are many theories surrounding the Loch Ness Monster. Considering the time from when it was first reportedly seen to today, it is possible that any actual living Nessie's could be the offspring of many generations from the original monster. Mosy researchers believe that there is more than one Nessie or there is a possible underwater passage that allows the monster to travel. In the United States, a similar monster has been reported in Lake Champlain, Vermont. This creature is known as Champ or Champie, supporting the idea of a possible underwater passageway allowing Nessie to travel from Scotland to the USA, changing its identity.

Although the monster was widely publicized in the early 1960s, the first report was made in 1930. However, the documented sighting of a plesiosaur, a water-bound creature, in 1923 made cryptozoologist believe that the specimen of these monsters existed in the lake at least 200 years ago. However, the description of the creature's appearance suggests an older origin. Expeditions to the bottom of the lake began in the early 1970s, when a group led by American Dr. Robert Rines obtained vague underwater photographs.

Although, many people claim to have seen the monster in recent years, the cameras installed show movement in the lake but no clear shots of Nessie and nobody has claimed the reward yet, but Nessie's enthusiasts keep watching the lake religiously.

In the United Kingdom, the confirmed existence of Nessie is irrelevant because the monster has a mythological meaning to the British people, but particularly to the Scottish that do not need proof to believe in the monsters existence. Modern urban legend or traditional Celtic myth, there is a popular belief rumored from person to person by way of legend saying that a certain hornpipe melody has the ability to attract Nessie to the surface, however only a few people that know the music are still alive today.

There is a website that describes this and numerous other creatures of Cryptozoology in detail. The website is called: Unknown Creatures, and may be found at this address =>

Chemtrails - Poisioning The Very Air We Breathe - Look To The Skies

Chemtrails - Poisioning The Very Air We Breathe - Look To The Skies

Ever notice a jet flying in the sky and how a line of white trails from behind it? Then see how it disentegrates a short distance behind it? This is known as a contrail or vapour trail. Now see the jet flying over head. Hey! it's contrail isn't disappearing behind it! It's miles and miles long! It goes from horizon to horizon. What Gives!?!?

This is know as a chemtrail. A trail of chemical being sprayed by a jet. What the chemical is one can only speculate. Some say it's aluminum oxide. Designed to reflect sun light back out to space to reduce or prevent global warming. Others say that it's a virus, like influenza or something, designed to make the weak immune system recipient sick. And some even expire. In an attempt to reduce the world population so that the New World Order can gain control easier.

In some reports chem trails have reduced the population in some areas by 12%. Other reports and photos show how highly populated areas are sprayed heavily. You could play tic tac toe in the sky. So much for a clear sky. In some movies chem trails have been captured on film.

So the next time that you're outside on a bright sunny day put on your sun glasses. Peer up at the sky. And chances are you will witness one of the scheduled sprayings for your area. Don't be fooled thinking that they're just cirrus clouds.

Following are several links to copy/paste into another browser window. Many showing pictures of chem trails and several links to follow. One even offers a chem trail buster. We must put this to an end.

Are Crop Circles Hoaxes Or Other Worldy Phenomena?

Are Crop Circles Hoaxes Or Other Worldy Phenomena?

Crop circles gripped the imagination, attention and interest of the world ever since the earliest circular formations discovered in the 1960's. The scientific association, the media, and the New Age believers almost always showed some interest in the appearance of new crop formations. The M. Night Shyamalan movie Signs, which starred Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix, and many other fictional works used crop formations as a main feature in their subject matter.

A crop circle design is created when a field of rapeseed, rye, wheat, corn or barley is flattened into what usually appears to be a pattern of circles and/or some other geometric shape. The earliest field formations consisted of simple circles, but the designs generally evolved into more and more complex patterns ever since, with some designs becoming a highly involved triple Julia set or even with some formations exhibiting three-dimensional qualities. The patterns found in sacred geometry can often be found in crop formations.

Serious investigators of the crop formation phenomenon, regardless of how basic or involved the patterns are, often wonder whether they are the result of simply being man-made (most likely), an effect of freakish weather, or something of otherworldly or paranormal in origin.

The History of the Crop Circles

Records of crop circle formations date back as far as the 1880's in England. According to these early records, crop circles were thought to be caused by freak storms that created round impressions in the cultivated fields.

There has been little interest in crop formations and little written about them until almost a century later. Crop formations again attracted more interest in the press when more sightings were reported in the 1960's. Crop designs did not just appear in England, they also occurred in many places all across the globe such as in Australia, Canada, China, Japan, and Russia. Areas and locations considered to be ancient, sacred and holy were often near the formations of crop circles. Most crop circles were discovered in the southern portion of England, mostly in the area of Wiltshire County.

Multiple explanations were created regarding the formation of crop circles. One theory stated that crop formations were the effect of strange weather such as whirlwinds and tornadoes. Another concept joined or linked crop circles to disc-shaped UFO's and otherworldly beings such as aliens.

The mystery behind most of the crop formation phenomena was destroyed when two pranksters by the name of Dave Chorley and Doug Bower claimed to have created most of the crop circles in Wiltshire County themselves using planks, rope and other locally found tools under cover of the darkest hours of the night.

Some Crop Formations Still Defy Explanation

After the time that Dave Chorley and Doug Bower came forward claiming that they created the crop circles that appeared on the fields of Wiltshire County, later research revealed that eighty per-cent of all documented crop formations are of human origin. However, a twenty per-cent of carefully recorded and researched crop formations had no indication of being created by human hands and therefore still had no "earthly" explanation. What then could be causing the unexplained twenty per-cent?

Many paranormal researchers and scientists were forced to conclude that the remaining unexplained group of crop formations had to have other explanations for their occurrences. Experts decided on the creation of "cereology" as a serious area of research to help solve the problem of finding out the actual truth behind the formation of the most genuine field designs.

Crop Formations That Are Well-Known

The following are a few highlights of various significant circular formations that appeared after the 1960's:

* The solar system formation, discovered in Longwood Warren, Hampshire, UK. With a similarity to the planets of the inner solar system and an obvious absence of the planet Earth, this formation attracted much interest to scholars and scientists alike.* The dumbbell formation, first discovered in Chilcomb Farm in UK. Assumed to be the first of the dumbbell formations, where two circles were connected by a line and flanked with two rectangles at each side. Formed in 1990.* The Barbury Castle tetrahedron. Barbury Castle is a Neolithic fort in the United Kingdom. Because it depicted one of the sacred hermetic symbols, the symbol of the Trinity, it was considered highly significant. This tetrahedron design appeared in the fields near Barbury Castle in 1991.* The "Tree of Life" formation. Another Barbury Castle configuration that appeared in May of 1997.

Crop Formations and Sacred Geometry

There is an obvious connection between crop formations and sacred geometry. Sacred geometry is an aspect of geometry for the purpose of communicating an eternal truth, expanding consciousness and spiritual awareness. There is also a sense of balance, centeredness and well-being that comes from the sheer beauty and elegance of the sacred geometry often used in the design of a crop formation. Sacred geometry carries its own meaning and message whether it be created by extraterrestrial artists from a higher realm, or as in the vast majority of cases, simply stomped-out by Earth-bound human designers. Many sacred jewelry designs are based on crop circles or on sacred symbols often found in crop circle formations.

Best Evidence - Top 10 UFO Cases - Feature Film

A look at ten of the best evidence UFO cases of all time, as chosen by a group of the world's most prominent UFO researchers.

Residual Hauntings Aren't Recordings, But Views in Time

Residual Hauntings Aren't Recordings, But Views in Time

abbey_monk_ghost_story-523x611-425x497Residual Hauntings are not naturally occurring recordings of past events into the surrounding environment. The truth is they are views in time. When you stand on the Gettysburg battlefield, the only thing that separates you from the men who fought there is time. In other words, you are there and so are they, you both occupy the same space. If people do give off psychic energy under incredible situations, this energy flows through time like water leaking through a dam. Residual Hauntings are not recordings, they are the actual events happening at that time, except by emotional or psychic energy it punches through time to our present day and we witness the event as it is happening in the past. The event happened only once in time. The true name for a residual haunting should be a "Time Leak Haunting", or just a "Time Leak".

No law of physics prevents time travel. But there are many things that tell us events cannot be "recorded" into their surroundings and then played back at a later time. The basic laws of mass and energy don't work that way. But physics is learning more and more about time such as space-time. Einstein determined that space and time are one and the same. They are merged together in something called space-time. Space-time can be manipulated, stretched, changed, etc.

Could the heightened emotional or psychic energy given off by one or thousands of humans be enough to punch a whole through or manipulate space-time?

We already know that we can view the past. Just look through a telescope at a distant star in the night sky and you are looking into the past. What you are seeing through your telescope is actually what the star looked like hundreds, thousands, or millions of years ago. What you are looking at may no longer even exist. When you look at the sun, you are looking at it 8 minutes in the past. We know this because we know the distance to the sun and also the speed of light. If the sun were to explode we would not see it until 8 minutes have passed.

Witnesses in present day Gettysburg have reported seeing and hearing a long line of troops, wagons, and horses. What they were seeing is Lee's Retreat after the battle of Gettysburg. It was a massive train of wagons carrying the severely injured Confederate troops. This massive train stretched for miles. The sadness and pain of this retreat no doubt expended huge amounts of emotional energy. Confederate General John Imboden wrote down an actual account of Lee's retreat:

"... from almost every wagon for many miles issued heart-rending wails of agony. From nearly every wagon as the teams trotted on, urged by whip and shout, came such cries and shrieks as these: 'O God why can't I die!', 'My God why will no one have mercy and kill me!', 'I am dying! I am dying! My poor wire, my dear children, what will become of you?' " - from the diary of Confederate General John Imboden, July 1863.

The human energy whether emotional or psychic is so great that it pushes the event across the dimension of time or across space-time. What would happen if someone from our time enters into this train of confederate soldiers when it next appears? I don't know.

Isolated Amazon Tribe Massacre Mystery

IROTATHERI, Venezuela -- Venezuelan officials and journalists investigating reports of a possible massacre in a remote indigenous village in the Amazon have found people peacefully cooking plantains over a communal fire, and no sign of any killings.

Yanomami Indians in the village of Irotatheri spoke with journalists through a guide, who translated their accounts that there had been no violence. The government flew in journalists by helicopter Friday after a report of killings in the community by an indigenous group.

The villagers stood and watched in apparent amazement as the helicopter passed over their huts and landed nearby in a clearing. Women in the village carried their babies in slings, and people of all ages had their lips bulging with tobacco leaves that they stuff into their mouths and keep there without chewing throughout the day.

Leaders of the Horonami Yanomami Organization released a statement late last month saying that people from a nearby village had visited Irotatheri and reported a mass killing of unknown proportions in early July.

About 40 people live in Irotatheri, a collection of huts that officials say is 19 kilometers (12 miles) from the border with Brazil.

The villagers still largely keep to their traditional ways, wearing face paint and loincloths. But government officials who reached the village ahead of the journalists brought the people T-shirts to cover themselves, and also brought hammocks and cooking pots, which the Yanomami quickly accepted.

Officials gave them pasta and dried manioc that they could cook in their new pots, and also handed them their first spoons.

A doctor traveled with the group and was providing check-ups. Many people in the village were treated for skin ailments and conjunctivitis.

The villagers performed a dance for the visitors, holding bows and arrows.

The Yanomami are one of the largest isolated indigenous groups in the Amazon, with a population estimated at roughly 30,000 on both sides of the Venezuela-Brazil border.

The Yanomami have often had to contend with Brazilian gold miners, who for years have crossed into Venezuela and torn up the forest, leaving water laced with mercury. But military officials who reached the village said that patrols in the area had found no miners.

The government is providing the community with a radio so it communicate with the authorities if they have problems. Two men from the village climbed aboard a helicopter for the first time and flew to a nearby military outpost in La Esmeralda to learn how to use the radio system.
