  • UFO panel a blast from the past

    De Void ^ | Tuesday, September 11, 2012 | Billy Cox
    Not surprisingly, National Atomic Testing Museum executive director Allan Palmer has triggered a whinefest for having the gall to sponsor an upcoming lecture billed as "Military UFO Files: Secrets Revealed." Mainly it's coming from the How can you sully the Smithsonian brand with little green men? crowd. Palmer doesn't care. Although the Atomic Testing Museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian, it isn't a subsidiary. And when it comes to UFOs, like most reasonably intelligent people, the retired Navy commander would prefer an independent inquiry to a laughably outdated government fact sheet. "Well it is a little risky, because we've got...

    Yahoo News posted this photo and others today. As I looked over several, I noticed a strange flying object in one that is clearly seen above the mountains in the distance. Someone found a HD version of the photo and made a cool video of it. Tell us what you think it is below please. You should check out the photos on Yahoo because Yahoo photo links usually only stay around for several weeks. This photo is a bit baffling. The object could be a UFO or a flying insect...yeah NASA doesn't tell the public everything. If they said life...

    Startling footage of three UFO lights hovering the skies above Los Angeles is raising some interesting questions. Does this video prove the existence of aliens? And if so, why are the extraterrestrials monitoring Beverly Hills, of all places? The two-minute video is very high quality, and you can clearly see three lights moving in near unison. You can view the amazing footage here. Considering all the police, fire and news choppers flying over Los Angeles at night, it's certainly possible these lights were coming from helicopters. The only problem with that theory, however, is that there was absolutely no sound...

The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative. Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following...

They will provide accommodation, food and air tickets for him, his wife, me and his mother who is my ex-wife,” said Turki’s father.

The hideous beast was discovered by two horrified nurses after their dog Sam pulled it from the murky water.

I have had many autoimmune disease tests done. (Thyroid, Lupus, Lymphoma, etc) Everything has come back negative so far. (I just had 15 different lab tests completed) The only prescription med that would keep it at bay 90% of the time was Prednisone, but my specialist has taken me off the Prednisone due to the effects of long term usage of it.

    Mysteriously, five spacecraft that flew past the Earth have each displayed unexpected anomalies in their motions. These newfound enigmas join the so-called "Pioneer anomaly" as hints that unexplained forces may appear to act on spacecraft. A decade ago, after rigorous analyses, anomalies were seen with the identical Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft as they hurtled out of the solar system. Both seemed to experience a tiny but unexplained constant acceleration toward the sun. A host of explanations have been bandied about for the Pioneer anomaly. At times these are rooted in conventional science — perhaps leaks from the spacecraft have...

Thomas Daily Mail staff Monday March 20, 2006 Ohio's Appalachian Country The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot and the Jersey Devil are names recognized worldwide, hunted by those with an insatiable curiosity. For residents of West Virginia's own Point Pleasant, there is another name that should be on that list: Mothman. The reported sightings of the large, winged creature with red glowing eyes started in the late 1960s, coinciding with many strange happenings in the area, including some saucer-like unidentified flying objects and climaxing with the collapse of the Silver Bridge in December 1967...

"We have a lot of skeptics -- I am very skeptical -- but we seriously investigated something a lot of people are serious about," he said. "And when we come to the end, this is wonderfully interesting. "More than 80 million Americans believe intelligent beings from somewhere else have come here,"...

    Ten years after the U.S. Air Force closed its books on the claim that a UFO crashed in Roswell, N.M., in 1947, a top Democratic Party figure wants to reopen the investigation into the cosmic legend. Despite denials by federal officials, many UFO buffs cherish the notion that in early summer of 1947, a flying saucer crashed in rural Roswell, scattering alien bodies and saucer debris across the terrain. Now Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, who chaired the recent Democratic convention in Boston, says in his foreword to a new book that "the mystery surrounding this crash has never...

    Unexplained tree-top boulders found in forest By Judy Hess Staff writer JHess@bcdemocrat.com Something unnatural is going on in Yellowwood State Forest. The mystery began a few years ago when a turkey hunter, scouting in a remote area of the 23,000-acre forest, discovered a large boulder in the top of an 80-foot-tall chestnut oak tree. What he saw wedged among its branches was a boulder about 4 feet wide and a foot thick. The boulder was eventually dubbed Gobbler's Rock after the turkey hunter. It sits high on a south-facing slope overlooking a ravine near Tulip Tree Road in western Brown...

Not nearly so well known is that breaking eggs also can lead to new information about the evolution of birds and dinosaurs, a topic of hot debate among leading biologists. Drs. Alan Feduccia and Julie Nowicki of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have done just that. They opened a series of live ostrich eggs at various stages of development and found what they believe is proof that birds could not have descended...
