LOST WORLDS:

Mysterious manuscript's code has been cracked, 'Prophet of God' claims

GHOSTS, HAUNTED PLACES AND POLTERGEISTS:

Is Raynham Hall haunted?
Oyster Bay has its fair share of history and Raynham Hall has been a major part of it. The Townsend family built the home and lived there for generations.

However, a couple of months ago, some stranger looking images revealed themselves when scanning the same Google image of Loch Ness...

Lair of the beasts: Keep out!
Nick Redfern: Area 51, Hangar 18, Montauk, and the Dulce Base: these are just a handful of the many and varied select, highly-classified installations about which the governments of the United States, Australia, China, Russia, the United Kingdom and elsewhere prefer we, the general public, remain steadfastly ignorant.

Sounds bizarre? It is!..
