We try to give you variety here at TDG. UFOs, monsters, poltergeists, masons and zen – the Thursday news briefs.

  • By collecting thousands of cases of children who spontaneously (without hypnosis) remember a past life, Dr. Ian Stevenson offers convincing scientific evidence, if not proof, for reincarnation.
  • New archaeological evidence suggesting that the first national leader of the British Isles was a Scot. Let’s hope the next one is too…
  • Here’s columnist Stephen Strauss with a sceptical take on the Global Consciousness Project.
  • Hava a look at this remarkably detailled UFO photo snapped by a teacher from Dorset in the UK. Real or fake?
  • Did a UFO crash in Nebraska in the 19th Century or was it one of Bill’s failed Philedelphia experiments?
  • Here’s another photo of a British UFO, this time from Grangemouth, Scotland. Do they steer by means of some electrokinetic principle?

  • A granite artwork known as the ‘Cursing Stone’ blamed for bringing misfortunes of “biblical proportions” to a city has been saved from destruction.
  • The Israel Defense Forces believe incoming recruits and soldiers who play Dungeons and Dragons are unfit for elite units because they are detatched from reality. They’re asking for a fireball up the nose.

  • A Guernsey couple watched in amazement as ball lightning entered their home.
  • US scientists are trying to teach a parrot to surf the web. Arthur, an African Grey, can switch between four “sites” at the moment, but this is very much the beginning of the project. I think Shadows is ahead of them there.

  • The tragic case of Tina Resch, the troubled teenager at the centre of possibly the most famous modern case of poltergeist activity.
  • We are visited and controlled by UFOs from the M15 Globular Star Cluster – the densest Black Hole driven ‘Core Cluster’ – the capital of the Universe (India Daily).
  • Could poltergeists be caused by faultlines in the ground which our ancestors marked with sacred sites and some now call ley-lines?
  • A blast from the past issues of DUAT magazine: “Mysteries of Rosslyn Chapel, the Templars and the Grail.”
  • The Mogollon Monster, Arizona’s version of Bigfoot.
  • The hunt for artificial muscles has taken a macho step further with an arm wrestling contest between three prototypes and a girl.
  • The United Nations yesterday approved a declaration urging governments to ban all forms of human cloning, including the cloning of human embryos for stem cell research – but Britain will defy the UN.
  • The latest edition of New Scientist is now available online. Check it out here.
  • Saturn’s largest and hazy moon, Titan, has a surface shaped largely by Earth-like processes of tectonics, erosion, winds, and perhaps volcanism.
  • The melting of sea ice at the North Pole may be the result of a centuries-old natural cycle and not an indicator of man-made global warming, Scottish scientists have found.
  • To go with our current poll, here are some gallaries of masonic-themed American art – “Art From the Lodge Hall”.
  • Lastly, to destress your day and give you some wonders to contemplate, we bring you 101 zen stories.

Thanks Shadows, as always a link angel.
