Just the Facts?: Flight 93 Angels -- Joseph Smith's 'Mormon President' Prophecy -- Chinese Bigfoot Quest
Ex-FBI Employee Claims She Saw Angels at Flight 93
A former police officer who retired from the FBI due to post-traumatic stress disorder linked to her role in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks has written a book about seeing legions of angels guarding the Pennsylvania site where a hijacked airliner crashed.
Lillie Leonardi served as a liaison between law enforcement and the families of the passengers and crew members killed in the United Airlines Flight 93 crash. She arrived on the scene about three hours after the crash.
Although Leonardi's book, In The Shadow Of A Badgecenters on her vision of angels, she argues her life has been changed more by what she didn't see that day.
"The biggest thing for me is that that there were no bodies," she said.
Leonardi, 56, remembers the burning pine and jet fuel stinging her nostrils. She said she also remembers a smoldering crater littered with debris too small to associate with the jetliner or 40 passengers and crew on board. Continue reading at Ex-FBI Employee Claims She Saw Angels at Flight 93
Joseph Smith: Mormon President = End of Days
But this review is about more than Mark Ames. This is about all of us. Because long after the snickering about Mormonism dies down, we are likely to wake up one November morning with a real-life “A Mormon President” of our own. And if the Mormons themselves are to be believed, it means we’re about five months away from the End Days.
According to a controversial Joseph Smith prophecy, when America degenerates to the point where “the Constitution hangs by a thread” — and most TV pundits agree we’re there already — at this time, a Mormon will be elected President of the United States, triggering a whole series of disaster-film plot twists: the end of the world as we know it; the overthrow of “gentile” rule; and the long-promised Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Only, instead of teleporting Himself somewhere interesting like Jerusalem, say the Mormons, Jesus will stage his comeback in Independence, Missouri.

Quest to find Chinese Bigfoot begins
A team of researchers will take an expedition to the Shennongjia forest of China’s central Hubei province, a forbidding 1,000 square mile reserve of high mountains and deep forests, to find evidence of the “Wild Man”.
For centuries, the villagers around the Shennongjia reserve have believed that the “Wild Man”, or Yeren, lives among them.
Standing just under seven feet tall (2.15 metres) and covered in dark grey hair, this Chinese incarnation of Bigfoot or the yeti has been spotted hundreds of times, the Age reported.
Size 12 primate-like footprints have been documented in the area, and long thick strands of hair have been tested by scientists, who concluded that they did not belong to any of the known creatures inside the reserve.
But no one has ever proven its existence.
This weekend, the team of 38 researchers drawn from several Chinese universities and research institutes will fan out across the Shennongjia reserve on an expedition to catalogue the region’s unique ecosystem.
Their trip will continue throughout August, and the researchers will collect data on some 1000 different types of animals that live in Shennongjia, including the golden snub-nosed monkey and a white-furred bear that is found only in the reserve.
If the researchers manage to uncover concrete evidence of the Wild Man, they will have succeeded where two previous major expeditions - one from 1974 to 1981 and one in 2010 - failed.
“I simply want to put an end to the argument that it exists,” said Wang Shancai, of the Hubei Relics and Archaeology Institute, when he set out in 2010.
In 2005, Zhang Jiahong, a shepherd in Muyu, near the forest, told state media he had seen two of the creatures, with “hairy faces, eyes like black holes, prominent noses and dishevelled hair, with faces that resembled both a man’s and a monkey’s".
Another explorer, Zhang Jinxing, spent years living as a hermit in the Shennongjia forest, and said he had seen footprints on 19 separate occasions, without ever finding the beast.
However, Zhou Guoxing, a former director of the Beijing Museum of Natural History and a paleontologist, has cast doubt on the idea that there may be a Chinese Bigfoot.
“There is no Wild Man in this world. I’ve visited every place where the Wild Man was reported in China. I’ve studied everything related to the Wild Man including hair, skulls and specimens. All of them are dyed human hair or come from monkeys and bears,” he said earlier this year.
He added that the local government in Hubei was simply trying to drum up tourist revenue. - dnaindia

Girl claims a little gray man was in her bedroom looking at her toys
We had just moved to the mountains near Trinidad, CO. My daughter was about three at the time. She did not want to go to bed because she was scared. I went to her room and laid down with her. I asked her what she was scared of and she described an event she said happened the night before. She said she woke up in the night and saw a little person standing next to her bed. She said it was looking at her toys. She then said it turned and looked right at her and she said she then ran to my room. I asked her what the person did, and she just said tha it was standing there. Mind you, this is coming from a three year old and I didnt want to hate her with questions because I wanted only her account of the event. Some of it was sketchy, but I did manage to get her to tell me that it didnt touch or hurt her. I then got a piece of paper and a black marker and asked her if she could draw Mommy a picture. She drew a fairly good picture of what looked like a little man that she said was gray in color. She did emphasize to me that its eyes had these lines on them like a bumble bee stripes but in a grid pattern. I
She said it was yellow and black. I got her a yellow marker and she colored in the eyes a bit and wanted me to help her draw the grid pattern in black. I asked her if it had a mouth or did it talk to her and she said it had sharp little teeth but didnt speak. I asked her if the face scared her and she said no, only when it looked at her did she get scared. Thats all the info I could get. I dont know if it was a dream, fantasy, or true, but I never allowed her access to anything remotely like it on tv or books, so Im not sure where she suddenly got such a detailed image. Ill always wonder about it, though. She suffers from a learning disability, dyslexia, and has trouble with focusing on a task. As a baby, we never had any notion that she might have these difficulties. They began after we moved to that house. Now we live in Texas and she is doing much better. Shes eight now. She insisted back then that she wasnt dreaming and that it was real. It was pretty frightening for her and me. - MUFON CMS
