Following several disturbing incidents involving cannibalism that have set the internet aflutter with rumours of an impending ‘Zombie Apocalypse,’ the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a statement on Friday saying that there is no cause to fear the walking dead.
‘CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms), agency spokesman David Daigle told the Huffington Post.
This is not the first time the CDC has addressed zombies. In the past, the government agency has released several tongue-in-cheek warnings about the undead.
A young woman screams uncontrollably as a priest recites a passage from the bible in a final attempt to exorcise the devil which has possessed her for 15 years.
It sounds like something from a horror movie, but this sinister scene is from a new real life documentary that highlights the extraordinary work of one of Europe’s only Vatican-approved ‘exorcists’.
Produced by Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik Horn Akselsen, the film entitled The Exorcist in the 21st Century follows Father José Antonio Fortea on his one man crusade to rid the World of demons.
Normally, Rebecca Jordan will take all the free TV exposure she can get for the psychiatric hospital that she’s turned into a tourist attraction known as the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. SyFy’s “Ghost Hunters.” Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures” and “Ghost Stories.” Discovery’s “Forgotten Planet.”
She even hosted an episode of CMT’s “My Big Redneck Wedding” on the 307-acre grounds. But she drew the line when producers for A&E’s “Paranormal State” called. They didn’t want to meet the ghosts behind the 2½-foot thick walls, she says. They wanted to get rid of them.
“And I was like, ‘Well, maybe you’re not the right fit for me. We do not want to get rid of our spirits! We want them to stay in the building!’ “Unless they want to go home,” she adds with a laugh. “And then they can go home. I’m not trying to keep anybody here who doesn’t want to be here.”
Every night, amateur ghost-hunting groups across the country head out into abandoned warehouses, old buildings and cemeteries to look for ghosts. They often bring along electronic equipment that they believe helps them locate ghostly energy.
Despite years of efforts by ghost hunters on TV and in real life, we still do not have good proof that ghosts are real. Many ghost hunters believe that strong support for the existence of ghosts can be found in modern physics. Specifically, that Albert Einstein, one of the greatest scientific minds of all time, offered a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts.
A recent Google search turned up nearly 8 million results suggesting a link between ghosts and Einstein’s work covering the conservation of energy. This assertion is repeated by many top experts in the field. For example, ghost researcher John Kachuba, in his book “Ghosthunters” (2007, New Page Books), writes, “Einstein proved that all the energy of the universe is constant and that it can neither be created nor destroyed. … So what happens to that energy when we die? If it cannot be destroyed, it must then, according to Dr. Einstein, be transformed into another form of energy. What is that new energy? … Could we call that new creation a ghost?”
A house in Euclid, Ohio, is arousing interest from ghost researchers because the owner claims that she has seen two ghosts having sex with each other.
“It look like, like ghosts having sex,” she told the Fox affiliate in Cleveland. “You can see the lady’s high heeled shoes!”
We’re used to seeing images of human faces in everything from mountains on Mars to pancake batter. But two scientists were surprised to see such a vision… in a testicular tumour.
The distressed face with a gaping mouth was spotted in the ultrasound scan of a 45-year-old man who had been suffering from testicular pain.
It made such an impact on Dr Greg Roberts and Dr Naji Touma from Queen’s University in Ontario, that they submitted the startling image to the journal Urology.
The rasping male voice sent a chill through the room. Hauntingly, it delivered a message from beyond the grave, describing in graphic detail the moment of death.
‘Just before I died, I went blind, and then I had an ’aemorrhage and I fell asleep and I died in the chair in the corner downstairs.’
The eerie voice — which can still be heard on audio tapes today — is purportedly that of Bill Wilkins. The recording was made in Enfield, North London, in the Seventies, several years after his death. Read More:
