Book Review: Mothman: Evil Incarnate

Mothman: Evil Incarnate by Loren Coleman The tagline for Loren Coleman’s new book Mothman: Evil Incarnate is “The Unauthorized Companion to The Mothman Prophecies,” referring to the book written by John Keel and published in 1975. And that tagline sums up this book very well. Mothman: Evil Incarnate is by no means a stand-alone book. Rather, […]

Bermuda Triangle rogue wave theory

The Bermuda Triangle and the Rogue Wave Theory

Ahh, the Bermuda Triangle. The area of ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico that supposedly is cursed, and is responsible for the loss of hundreds of aircraft and ships, as well as the lives of those on board. Over the years, a variety of paranormal culprits have been blamed for the weirdness, from sea […]

In Search Of... Zachary Quinto History Channel

TV Review: In Search Of…

Whenever the inevitable question comes up regarding what first got me interested in the paranormal, my answer is always the same: the old In Search Of… television show hosted by Leonard Nimoy. In fact, I even make reference to it here on the blog in my bio. In Search Of… was a syndicated TV series that ran from 1977 to […]

Time Warp Joshua Warren

Paranormal Investigator Finds Las Vegas Time Warp?

I try to keep an open mind about all things paranormal, but I initially approach everything from a more skeptical point of view. I have, on occasion, come across things I can’t easily rationalize or debunk. But for the most part, the vast majority of paranormal or supernatural occurrences can be easily explained. I hate […]

Mysterious Sounds in Bucks County, PA

One of my favorite unexplained mysteries, from when I was a wee lad reading about such things in the library, is unexplained sounds. In fact, one of my very first “mysteries of the unexplained” encyclopedias had an entry devoted to the Barisal Guns phenomenon heard in 19th century Bangladesh, so named because they sounded like […]

John Podesta on Ancient Aliens

John Podesta on “Ancient Aliens,” says Hillary Would Have Declassified UFO Info

With a few rare exceptions, I don’t even approach anything political here on the blog, since I like to create a fun space and we are already bombarded daily by political garbage from pretty much every other news and social media outlet in existence. But how could I resist this completely bonkers story? I’ll summarize, […]

Max Spiers UFO researcher dies mysteriously vomits black liquid

UFO Researcher Found Dead After Vomiting Black Liquid

I have been hard-pressed lately to find truly compelling paranormal stories to write about. Nobody knows where Ghost Hunters will end up (but “Stay tuned! Big things are coming!”), Halloween is right around the corner so there’s a myriad of obviously faked ghost photos floating around, and there’s an Indonesian blobsquatch who looks like he’s […]

Paranormal Activity Blamed for Abuse of Patients

Many paranormal investigators believe that hauntings can be caused by trauma suffered by people who lived in the past. The theory goes that the people who suffered these tragedies cannot “move on” to the afterlife, and thus are stuck here on Earth, doomed to forever answer questions and demands such as “is there anybody here […]

SETI extraterrestrial signal

SETI Mystery Signal Elicits Hopes for Alien Contact

The big story today revolves around a mysterious signal that was detected by SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The signal apparently originated from a sun-like star some 94 light-years away, HD 164595. Now, UFO nerds enthusiasts like myself are remembering the “Wow!” signal that SETI found in 1977, a spiking radio signal from space which was […]
