Dyfed Powys police annoyed with paranormal investigations

0
A police chief has hit out at cops being forced to answer "bonkers" questions from the public - such as how many werewoves, vampires and zombies have been investigated. Chief Constable Ian Arundale is annoyed at officers being forced to spend hours answering "bizarre" queries instead of being on the beat. So far this year his officers have also logged queries about witches, ghosts, demons, wizards, Big Foot and UFOs. The rural Dyfed Powys force in Wales is legally required to spend up to 18 hours finding the information needed to answer each request. Mr Arundale said: "We find ourselves not only dealing with the legitimate inquries but also the bizarre which are time-consuming and take a ...

8 out of 10 Americans believe in angels

0
Angels don't just sing at Christmastime. For most Americans, they're a year-round presence. A new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that 77 percent of adults believe these ethereal beings are real. Belief is primarily tied to religion, with 88 percent of Christians, 95 percent of evangelical Christians and 94 percent of those who attend weekly religious services of any sort saying they believe in angels. But belief in angels is fairly widespread even among the less religious. A majority of non-Christians think angels exist, as do more than 4 in 10 of those who never attend religious services. Beyond the religious gap, women are more likely than men to believe angels are real, and those over ...

Bishop says "Our Lady of the Underpass" hasn't faded

0
Some people believe it was just a stain on the wall. To others it was a miraculous apparition of the Virgin Mary. It was dubbed "Our Lady of the Underpass" for its location on Fullerton Avenue under the Kennedy Expressway. Since it was first noticed in 2005, the apparition has been defaced and painted over. The crowds of pilgrims have faded. But fresh flowers and recently lit candles still adorn the site, surrounding a framed photograph of the original image. Those signs of continuing devotion made an impression on Bishop James A. Wilkowski, who leads the Evangelical Catholic Church, a denomination independent of the Roman Catholic Church and claims 5,000 members. "This has not faded awa ...

Were the pyramids really made of a proto-concrete?

0
Don't tell Zahi Hawass (long time [and now former] Egyptian Minister of Antiquities) this, but there's a lot of evidence to suggest that many of the stones that the pyramids were actually made of a sort of proto-concrete rather than carved from large limestone quarries. This isn't a new theory either, about 2,000 years ago a Roman Navy commander wrote:In this way occurs a multitude of heaps (of minerals) which can be transformed into real rocks. They Egyptians make vases in this way...Romans themselves also had concrete, so it isn't far fetched to suggest this scenario. Consider for a moment that, as the article states:Other scientists, however, are using modern techniques to examine the sto ...

THE SUN has brought the incredible X-ray eyes girl to Britain and seen her amazing powers at first hand. Russian Natasha Demkina, 17, has stunned doctors in her home country with her ability to see medical conditions inside people. We flew her 1,500 miles to London to demonstrate her extraordinary powers on Sun reporter Briony Warden, who suffered multiple injuries when she was knocked down by a car in October last year. She is still recovering from the hit-and-run and uses crutches or a wheelchair to get around. Before Natasha arrived at Briony’s North London home, our reporter removed a leg brace and hid all clues to her injuries. Then the petite blonde teenager, who looks years youn ...

Lightning hits preacher after call to God

0
A congregation in the United States was left stunned when lightning struck a church moments after a visiting preacher asked God for a sign. Church members in the town of Forest in the state of Ohio said the preacher had been emphasising the importance of penance when, in the course of his prayers, he called on the heavens above. The lightning struck the steeple, then hit the preacher himself when it travelled through electrical wiring to his microphone. Local authorities said he was not injured. "It was awesome, just awesome," said church member Ronnie Cheney, who was among the congregation when the strike hit, told the Findlay Courier newspaper. "You could hear the storm ...

Photo captures image of an 'angel' in hospital hallway

When Chelsea Banton was born five weeks prematurely, doctors predicted she had 36 hours to live. Proving them wrong was the first miracle for Chelsea, now an Independence High School freshman. “She spent the first four months in a neonatal intensive care unit,” recalls her mother, Colleen Banton of Mint Hill. Before Chelsea was 2, she was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia, the first of several dangerous run-ins with the illness that have made her a familiar face in Presbyterian's pediatric intensive care unit. Among other health problems in her medical history: hydrocephalus, requiring a shunt in her skull and, later, several shunt revisions; life-threatening viruse ...
