Conspiracy Theory Analysis: Unsolved & Unexplained

The Fourth Kind: Fact or Fiction? The Truth Behind The Film

Perhaps nothing captivates us more than stories and accounts that have an element of the unknown to them – incidents that remain unexplained and ultimately, unsolved. And there are a great many such cases to delve into that have so far eluded some of the best investigators, researchers, and would-be sleuths for years.

There are, for example, a number of people who have disappeared in strange circumstances, often with blurred ties to murky people or groups. When these groups have apparent ties to governments and official departments, these incidents perhaps become even more disturbing.

We might also concern ourselves with the many unsolved murders, many of which still frustrate and fascinate researchers decades after they were committed. And what of the deaths that are officially recognized as accidental or even from suicide, that many researchers believe were, in reality, cold-blooded murder? Such people, if we believe the conspiracies surrounding them, often had apparent secrets to reveal and shocking stories to tell in the weeks and days leading up to their sudden deaths.

There are also many bizarre events throughout history that remain largely unexplained, not least, perhaps, the several cases of entire towns or settlements simply disappearing overnight, or the many abandoned ships discovered floating on the oceans minus their crew, or even the many planes that have simply disappeared into thin air. The fact is, for all we know of our home planet, there are indeed events that remain unexplained…

Drained Blood, Medically Precise Cuts, And Unanswered Questions: The Cattle Mutilations

Without a doubt one of the strangest of all mysteries on the planet is that of cattle and animal mutilation – discoveries of dead animals with medically precise cuts and quite often drained entirely of their blood. What’s more, there is rarely any blood around the body itself, or any tracks as to indicate just who is committing these atrocious acts of violence. Might it be the work of aliens looking to understand life on Earth? Or might it be the acts of a top-secret government program…?

Links Between Cellular Memory And Organ Transplants

The idea that organ transplants could result in the recipient receiving the memories and even the personality of the donor is to most people, pure fantasy.
