Lynmouth Flood Conspiracy Theory: Fact or Fiction?

November 23, 2015 10:36 am 11 comments

For many years, conspiracies about what the government have done and what they have carried out have grown arms and legs. What starts out as a disgruntled comment in the pub from one person soon turns into a blog post claiming ‘sources’ and using haggard footage and extremely specific circumstances to try and sell the idea of a conspiracy. Sometimes, though, the “tin foil hat brigade” have a point. One incident where they may have had a point comes from the Lynmouth Flood Conspiracy Theory. This is a theory that…

September 15, 2015 2:21 pm 19 comments

For most of us, the world of the occult and the “strange” is something that we simply avoid. Lots of humanity tend to stick to the idea that things outside of the ordinary are best saved for movies and for scaring children at Halloween. Unfortunately, not everything that we hear or read about that seems a bit out there is out there – sometimes, it’s more authentic than you could ever have feared. One such story that seems to have grown an incredible amount of legs in the last few…

Eisenhower’s Meeting with Aliens: The Facts

January 29, 2015 3:44 pm 6 comments

For many years, one of the most intriguing tales out there has been humanity and our contact with aliens. With so much out there it’s almost impossible to deny – for example, there have been numerous governments and former administrators around the world who have effectively “disclosed” – it’s no surprise that the variety as well as the severity of the stories has grown exponentially over the years. This usually comes down to one thing for most people, however – the fact that our top brass are well in the…

Philadelphia Experiment: What Really Happened?

January 1, 2015 2:29 pm 1 comment

Throughout recent history, the United States has probably been at the centre of more conspiracy theories and alleged cover-ups than anywhere else. Depending on how far down the scale you are ready to go, the Americans have done everything from blowing up their own harbors and towers to fixing stock markets and assassinating their own President. The amount of different ideas, theories and downright madcap stories out there that comes back around to the United States government is quite staggering – but one of the most perplexing, of course, is…

The official news story from the Roswell Daily Record

The Roswell UFO Incident: A Case Study

December 9, 2014 4:37 pm 1 comment

In the summer of 1947, either late June or the first week of July, a New Mexico ranch foreman named Mac Brazel reported finding strange debris in an open field near the town of Roswell. An intriguing narrative developed rapidly: The material may be from a crashed alien craft, called a “flying disk” or “flying saucer,” now known as a UFO. The U.S. government soon claimed it was a downdeed high-level weather balloon and dismissed the alien crash story. Over the years, the events have become known as “The Roswell…

Vitamin D to Improve Mood and Lift Depression?

November 25, 2013 1:47 pm 2 comments

We are learning more and more about the benefits and functions of Vitamin D each year and there have been several studies conducted that try to discover whether Vitamin D can play a role in either causing or aggravating depression.   I have always suffered with depression, particularly in the Winter months when I don’t get much sunlight.  Seasonal Affective Disorder (or as it’s know, SAD) is a common phenomenon that millions of people suffer from and the further away from the equator you go, the more likely you are…

The Top 20 Alien/Invasion Movies: Panic and Chaos

April 10, 2013 10:36 am 6 comments

I clearly remember watching the original “The War of the Worlds” on TV as a kid. My face turned white and my stomach sank to my shoes as the first alien craft emerged from the pod. I was convinced there were probably aliens OUTSIDE OUR HOUSE RIGHT NOW. It was that outstanding type of fear that made movies so special when you were younger – you get that great fear of every possible fictional idea being played out in front of you, giving you a taster of what it would…

5 Most Likely Ways the World Will End in 2012

September 24, 2012 9:48 pm 22 comments

Look around you. Of the next ten people you see, it’s likely one of them believes the world is coming to an end on Dec 21, 2012 (Reuters). And there is a good chance they are right. Why Dec 21, 2012? That’s the day the Mayan “long calendar” returns to zero. The last time it did that was 3114 B.C. The Mayan calendar returning to zero is considered to be a doomsday prophecy. But how? What catastrophe will take place to wipe us off the face of the earth? There…

Why Is NASA Covering Up The Real Reason We Have Never Returned to the Moon?

May 29, 2012 9:30 am 71 comments

Gene Cernan was the last human to step off the Moon when Apollo 17 set off on their return trip to Earth in December of 1972.  From the time Neil Armstrong made the first famous step on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, until December 14, 1972, when Mr. Cernan, Jack Schmitt, and Ronald Evans returned to Earth, twelve different men walked on the moon in 6 successful moon landings. And we’ve never been back.  Why? I believe I have the answer. First, let’s consider alternative theories like politics…

Two billion people around the world watched live on TV, and hundreds of thousands packed the streets and malls of London to watch the “Wedding of the Century”—a real-life fantasy pulled straight from the storybooks–Prince William marrying his fiancée Kate Middleton! There hasn’t been anything like it since the last “Wedding of the Century”, when Prince William’s father, Prince Charles, married the young, shy Lady Spencer 30 years ago on Jul 29, 1981. Many young girls who swooned to the romance of that ceremony, with Diana’s legendary 25 foot train,…

So I’m somewhat of a worrier when it comes to my health. I’ve been in and out of hospital (mainly checking myself in) with various mystery conditions ranging from tick bites (the possibility of contracting Lyme Disease) to tingling nerve sensations all over my body. I’m on various medications for my anxiety, depression and slight psychosis; I’m perfectly mentally stable…however my mind does wander, usually on to my health. A few years ago I noticed an outbreak of these little red spots all over my body. Immediately I was worried,…
