Two Women See ‘Bigfoot’ After Florida’s Hurricane

CEDAR KEY, Fla. — Two women in Florida claim they saw an unidentified bipedal creature. The two sisters said they were driving in daylight north of Cedar Key one week after hurricane Hermine on September 11, 2016 when they spotted the bigfoot-like creature crossing the highway.

7 Signs That My Anxiety Wouldn’t Go Away Without Help

Like most people who have dealt with anxiety for as long as they can remember, I’ve always known that I worry more than most people. You can only hear the phrase “you worry too much” before you start to think there might be something different about you, and something you can do about it. Even though I’ve exhibited signs of an anxiety disorder since childhood, I just didn’t know that much about how anxiety works, and it took me a while to realize that my anxiety wouldn’t just go away without help. While it’s true that managing anxiety is part …

A Photographic Journey Through the Catacombs

These pictures of the catacombs are from a Spring Break trip to Paris and they hardly capture the haunting quality of the place.  The photographs were taken by Gabriel Penot.  The arch at the entrance is translated to saying:   STOP:  YOU ARE ENTERING THE KINGDOM OF THE DEAD The Catacombs of Paris have always been a source of endless fascination for me.    The catacombs are a series of labrynthian tunnels that burrow beneath the city of Paris.   The walls of these tunnels, or this ossuary, are covered in the bones of Paris’s dead.  Opened in the late 18th century, the underground cemetery …

Women and Priests: The Questions Hollywood Doesn’t Ask

Most Catholic priests take vows of celibacy, but in a large sense, they are married — to the Church. In other words, they’re taken. They’re not available. So why do women chase them? Last season on Fox’s “The Exorcist,” young Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) gave into temptation and had an affair with Jessica (Mouzam Makkar), a married woman. Let’s unpack that. Yes, he violated his vows of celibacy, but he also violated chastity, and committed adultery. He repented of all those and got back on track, but what about Jessica? She persistently pursued Father Tomas, even though she knew …

The Ghosts and Legends of the Cliffs of Moher

  The Cliffs of Moher are resoundingly beautiful.  They are a stark and foreboding reminder of the power of nature and their juxtaposition against the stark landscape of Western Ireland can only be described as breathtaking.  But as you wander the wind torn landscape you can’t help but feel they are also deadly.   I felt this as clearly as I had ever felt the whisper of death as I walked on the cliffs last month. Looking down, I became profoundly aware that one misstep would lead to my death.   As I clutched my son’s hand, I was even more aware …

3 People Have Died After Falling Into a Volcanic Crater in Italy

Supernatural Staffordshire: The floating Cavalier

When people meet me they often ask about the kind of paranormal experiences others have had. Even those who are sceptical to the point of mockery about all aspects of the supernatural are keen to learn what others believe they have encountered. As human beings we are instinctively curious about the world around it – it is perhaps the defining feature which took us from dwelling in the trees to living in cities. It seems more than likely that civilization would never have developed had the first modern humans peered out of their caves and asked what was beyond the …
