‘Why are so many plagues hitting the United States all of a sudden? Yes, one can always point out bad stuff that is happening somewhere in the country, but right now we are facing a nightmarish combination of crippling drought, devastating wildfires, disastrous viruses, dying crops and superbugs that scientists don’t know how to kill. And as you will see, we even have a plague of flies down in Mississippi. So what in the world is going on? Is this just a case of bad luck, or is something else happening? At the conclusion of this article, please feel free to tell me what you think. The following are ten plagues that are hitting America right now…’
‘Most people believe that the persecution of “witches” reached its height in the early 1690s with the trials in Salem, Mass., but it is a grim paradox of 21st-century life that violence against people accused of sorcery is very much still with us. Far from fading away, thanks to digital interconnectedness and economic development, witch hunting has become a growing, global problem.
In recent years, there has been a spate of attacks against people accused of witchcraft in Africa, the Pacific and Latin America, and even among immigrant communities in the United States and Western Europe. Researchers with United Nations refugee and human rights agencies have estimated the murders of supposed witches as numbering in the thousands each year, while beatings and banishments could run into the millions.’
‘If there’s one thing we know about the universe, is that there are huge swathes of it that we don’t understand — in fact, most of it we can’t even see.
We already knew about Dark Matter and Dark Energy, two despairingly complex and confusingly named pillars of the invisible cosmological infrastructure that has so far evaded detection.
Now to their ranks we can add “dark light”, after a team at CU Boulder found using data from Hubble that up to 80% of light in the universe is “missing”.’
‘When John Carter died of a brain tumour, his parents found comfort in the knowledge his heart would save someone else’s life.
But they had no idea whose … until an amazing chance encounter five years later brought them together with the man rescued by the transplant.
The 19-year-old stranger was giving a reading at a memorial service when John’s mother Freda broke down in tears and said: ‘This person’s got my son’s heart.’’
‘A US congressman was replaced by a robot body double after he was secretly executed, and the results of a recent vote should be thrown out, his opponent has claimed.
Timothy Ray Murray says on his website that incumbent Oklahoman congressman Frank Lucas is dead, and has been replaced by a body double. He says that a similar tactic was used in Kentucky in 2012.’
‘A team of Harvard scientists believe the remnants of an ancient Earth, dating to the time another planet collided with ours to produce the moon, may still be lodged deep within the Earth’s mantle.
If you thought it was a trip to see the Earth from space, then wait until you get a load of this: A team of scientists from Harvard University believe that have found evidence that an ancient Earth exists inside the Earth.’
‘As you may have noticed concerning forward movement in your life, we’ve been in Retrograde-land pretty much since the beginning of the year. First, just a note about the meaning of a Retrograde phase of a planet. The planets *appear* to move backward from our perspective on earth due to their orbits around the Sun. They don’t actually move backward (it would be very scary if they did:) But the *weird* sensation of watching a planet appear to move backward has had significance here on Earth since humans first looked up at the skies. ‘
‘The retired officer, known only as Captain Kaye, also claims to have served in a secret ‘space fleet’ run by a multinational organisation called the Earth Defense Force.
The ex-naval infantryman, who uses the pseudonym Captain Kaye, says he was posted to the Red Planet to protect five human colonies from indigenous Martian life forms.
He claims he then spent nearly three years serving in a secret ‘space fleet’ run by a multinational organisation called the Earth Defense Force, which recruits military personnel from countries including the US, Russia and China.’
‘A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from.
The water is hidden inside a blue rock called ringwoodite that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth’s surface and its core.
The huge size of the reservoir throws new light on the origin of Earth’s water. Some geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck the planet, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the oceans gradually oozed out of the interior of the early Earth.’
‘An Ohio mother says her 13-year-old stabbed her multiple times to please Slender Man – the same fictional horror character that allegedly inspired a grisly knife attack in Wisconsin last week.
The resident of Hamilton County, who has not been publicly named, told the station WLWT that her daughter was obsessed with the ghoulish Internet boogyman.
According to the parent, the 13-year-old girl has been suffering from longstanding mental problems, but she never imagined the child would try to harm her.’
