Humanoid Reports & Other Encounters / 2010 - August 2012: Part 1

The following article was forwarded by long-time humanoid researcher and colleague Albert S. Rosales. The full narrative will be presented in four parts...enjoy!


“Incredible accounts….by seemingly credible persons.” - Dr. J. Allen Hynek (1972)

Many cases from 2010 and 2011 are summarized in the issues of THE JOURNAL OF HUMANOID STUDIES and will not be duplicated here. After a busy 2011, 2012 has proven to be a most interesting year so far with numerous assorted encounters and cases, are we building up for something? Is this our last year to learn our real place in the cosmos? I suspect it will be my last year for collecting cases and I will start work in other projects.

The witness was visiting his mother and late at night left the house to visit a longtime friend who also lived in the city. It is only a 10 minute walk. However while walking his next memory was of having his eyes closed and hearing a calm, relaxing, soothing almost hypnotizing female voice saying, “Kevin…Kevin..Is ok Kevin we are here to help, it’s ok we are not going to harm you. We’re going to make you feel better.”
He then opened his eyes and at first there was a blinding light that vanished and he could now see a room and in the room he saw two ‘Grey’ aliens, very tall. He remembers that the room was of two different colors , 1 on the top of the wall and on the bottom almost like a trim around a room, the top color was purple and the bottom color was blue, it was a thin line of these colors trimming the room as light, as light seemed to emanate from them. He asked the aliens if they were going to harm him and what were they going to do. They replied telling the witness, “We are going to help you and fix you”. The witness was sure that his mouth was not moving as he ‘spoke’ to them. His next recollection was of each Grey on each side of him; he was then placed against a cold metal object and brought to a hall to the left of the room. The hall was dark and cloudy or misty like a fog and it must have been about 40 to 50 ft long. Before he got to the next room he saw to the right in the room a huddle circle ‘formation’ of at least 7 to 8 gray humanoids, they were all very tall. There was an ‘exit’ to another room next to them into a white colored hall. To the left of the groom was a smaller group of about 5 grays.
The room itself was round and dark and also foggy, there was also a dim light across the room. The walls of the room were indented almost like a V-shape he also noticed an odor in the air resembling Peroxide or Ammonia. As he was taken into the room he remembers looking at one of the grays that was so tall that ‘he’ had to bend down and looked directly into the witness’ eyes. Strangely at this point the witness felt no fear. Suddenly one of the gray humanoids inserted a small back tube inside the witness’ nose, which made a small noise. The humanoid had long fingers and had a small mouth which seemed to move up and down ‘like a fish’ but did not say anything. He remembers screaming after that was done. All the time he could hear a voice saying, “It’s going to be ok we are here to help”. It was a soft calm voice. He next remembers being ‘slammed’ down into a metallic table and moved to another area of the room. At this point the witness became defensive and began kicking the humanoids around him, one of the creatures fell against a wall and then fell down. The other ‘grays’ then quickly backed away, his next memory was of being on the side of the road again. He felt confused and tired. A police officer drove next to him and stared at him in a strange manner but did not stop to assist. It was now nearly 06:00 a.m., the witness had lost nearly 5 hours of time.
He additionally described the ‘grays’ as at least 7ft to 8ft tall with long fingers, slits for mouths and small black eyes. They communicated to him and among themselves telepathically. The witness used to have a ‘crooked’ nose before the event but is now straight. The colors inside the craft were white, purple and blue.

The witness, a young man named Soufian (involved in other encounters) had gone to sleep as usual and during the middle of the night Soufian began to experience a strange ‘dream’. In this dream he saw himself lying down in bed. There was a tall and slender female humanoid figure standing alongside the bed, about 1 meter away. The lady was wearing light colored robes; she had pale gray colored skin and long pale blond/white hair which hung down to her shoulders. She looked very healthy, with smooth skin. For some reason Soufian does not remember her facial features. Her arms and lower legs were exposed, and other than the skin tone looked human.
Soufian stared at this scene for a couple of seconds. Then without warning the figure was closer and appeared to have her hands down inside of his lower chest. He immediately felt excruciating pain, like the lady was moving his lower ribs back and forth and crushing down on them. From his current viewpoint he could not see whether or not his chest was actually opened up, but he feels that it wasn’t and that the hands of this being had somehow entered his skin. He watched himself struggling against what was taking place, but he felt that he was paralyzed and trapped. The intense pain continued. He tried shouting out but could not scream, there was just complete silence. The procedure seemed to go on for a very long time, possibly a couple of hours, although Soufian says that it could have been less but felt so long due to the pain. Then all of the sudden it was over. The lady vanished and he awoke with a shock. However despite the traumatic experience he had just undergone, Soufian soon drifted back off the sleep. In the morning he lay in bed remembering what had taken place. He could feel that his lower ribs were aching. At first he was frightened to check, but after about half an hour he looked over his body for any markings or cuts. There was nothing. He got up and went into work like normal. The aching pain in his ribs continued for several hours before finally dispersing. However his ribs continued to feel sensitive for at least another day.

Date: January 2010 Time: night
21-year old engineering student Ramon Alejandro Maldonado was vacationing in the area with his girlfriend ‘Zule’. That night while he relaxed in the pool and his girlfriend slept inside he noticed several strange lights moving around in the sky, but he ignored them. Later while in the bedroom with his girlfriend he argued with her and stepped out of the room and went to the living room. Suddenly the dogs began to bark and howl furiously and since the location was sort of isolated he feared that there were burglars outside. However as he nervously looked out a window he suddenly heard somebody ‘whisper’ in his ear the words ‘Plan Maestro” (Master plan) he immediately ran to the bedroom where his girlfriend Zule was and opened the door. Once he opened the door he found her crying and very nervous while questioning her she told him that while she lay in bed the room suddenly darkened and two beings which she described as ‘even darker than the dark room’ appeared. To her it seemed as if the bedroom was now empty except for her and the beings. She heard the beings tell her not to be afraid and not to cry. At that same moment Ramon burst through the door and the room returned to normal.

The witness was getting ready to go to bed when she looked out the window and noticed a strange but somehow ‘familiar’ object which was very close to the window and hovering low over the ground. The UFO was circular and she could the light on the inside of the craft with a ‘being’ inside it, but could only see the outline of its body…which was black. It was not human but humanoid in shape with a noticeably larger head than those of humans, shortly after the witness noticed it; it then rotated away from the spot and shot up towards the sky.

The witness had just exited a vehicle he had been riding with friends and was going to walk across a field surrounded by woods to an apartment complex. His reason for not going directly to the apartments what that he did not want someone at the apartments to see him with his friends. As he was crossing the wooded area heading to the field he felt a presence above him. Somehow ‘he knew it was a UFO without looking’. He started running through the woods to escape. That is when he heard a ‘twitching’ noise in the bushes in front of him. He turned and ran in a different direction but no matter which way he turned he would hear the same noises ahead. The noises kept him running in a circle. Then he became paralyzed and could only move in a jerking motion and fell to his knees. At this time ‘God told him not to open his eyes’, he became weightless for a few moments and next he was examined with some device that he called a scanner. As it moved around his head he could hear a buzzing sound similar to a radio being tuned across the band. The device made his hair stand up as it was moved over his head. While lying down (he assumes inside the craft) he hears someone say ‘he is still alive.’ Then he hears someone else say, he needed a transfer and then a string of numbers. For some reason he felt that these numbers were very important and related to future UFO research, that he should be hypnotized to reveal the ‘sequence’. The duration of the incident was about fifteen minutes. He then cried so much that his shirt was soaking wet. When he was returned (to the ground?) he was standing, his arms outstretched, looking up at the sky. The sky had been cloudy before, upon his return the clouds were gone and he could see the stars. He also added that they had scraped his skin in the stomach area he thought that they might have been collecting DNA samples.

The witness (requesting anonymity) began having strange experiences some time in 2009 when she was about to commence life guard training. She was staying at her mother’s house for the week and it was also the time when there had been a volcanic eruption in Iceland that grounded planes across Europe for several weeks. She had read an article about the government testing a drone plane in Wales about 50 or so miles from where she lives. This drone could only be tested in restricted air space so it was quite interesting to be informed that planes across the UK and Europe were to be grounded because of the risk from ash effectively making all airspace restricted and leaving the skies free for the drones.
According to the witness, at the time she could see several formations of these drones in the sky at any given time in the evening. She also noticed another strange occurrence, lasers in short green bursts apparently raining from the sky. The witness became curious about all these events and made a huge amount of search engine requests combining these things. But low and behold her computer (a Mac) started behaving strangely and any software she tried to use also failed. After discovering that most people could not see these lasers (though a few did, she went to a friend’s house and they were pouring through her windows and bouncing around the room, even off the carpet and soft furnishings and her friend and husband could see them). When she asked her friends if they had noticed them they replied they had been coming in for several days and they assumed they were coming from satellites and pointing out of the window at what she thought were about 7 drones. According to the witness she could clearly see the drones when they were flying very high but obviously much closer than satellites.
One evening as she approached her mum’s house in her car she thought she saw someone run into an alleyway opposite her house. All these alleyways are gated and it was dark so not many people would want to go into them. She thought it might have been a burglar so she mentioned it to her mum. She then made a point of keeping an eye out of the window just in case the ‘burglar’ made a return visit. She could also hear noises coming from outside though she could not see anything from the window. She looked out the from door letter box and saw what looked like a tall very skinny man standing in front of a neighbor’s car facing where she was, his face looked like it had large eye sockets though they were dark and she couldn’t make out any eyes, his skin looked gray and wrinkly though stuck to the bones like it ‘dried and dead’. He seemed to sway very slightly. She opened the front door quickly but there was no one there. She went to the front window, but there was no one there. She went back inside and watched through the letter box window as a car drove by and the tall thin stranger turned his head to watch the car pass, and then resumed his posture facing her direction, another car passed and he did the same thing. She told her mum and she went barging out of the house to check but he was gone.
The lasers continued for several days and one day she had to call the police out when she was back at the house because she could hear noises in her attic and what sounded like muffle d speech, while she was on the phone with the police there was a loud banging coming from her daughter’s room where one of the loft hatches is located, when a policeman later checked the hatch and fell down her daughter’s wardrobe it made the same noise but the police could not find anyone in the house and no sign of entry.
The final and most significant incident happened on March 31 2010 at around 11:30 a.m. when the witness was on her way to meet a client when something very ‘odd’ happened. She pulled off the M1 motorway just south of Wakefield to call the client and tell him that she was 10 minutes away, she didn’t want to hang around too long as she had just performed a U-turn at a no U-turn sign and after a 2 hour drive she just wanted to get there, finished and go home. In front of her a lorry (truck) drove off and 2 large black saloon cars with blacked out windows pulled in front of her. She watched briefly as 3 men in black suits got out of the first car and made their way to the back door of the second car, which opened and the men started talking with someone in the back seat of the car. She then heard her cell phone signal indicating a text message so she picked up the phone and looked at the screen opening the message. The next thing she knew she looked up and the cars were gone, there was no text message on the phone and it was over 1 hour later. She also had a strong recollection of having had a long conversation with an alien being, tall and aqua blue in color. She was lying down at the time and viewing ‘her’ from chin upwards as she was above her head. The alien had large oval black eyes, and no nose to speak of, no real lips but a mouth. The alien ‘spoke’ to the witness without moving her lips and they discussed how the world needed to be saved, how peace was important right now, it was so important that she should make this happen in some way, that it was her ‘job’. She asked for more ‘tools’ to help her achieve this end and was told that they would see what could be done.
One of the stranger parts of this conversation was that she addressed the female alien in a word she didn’t understand but she knew it meant both commander and mother, she felt she knew her and that she was in charge though she also held status where ever they were. The witness ‘was at no means at the bottom of the pecking order but in a position to give orders if necessary.’ At no time was she afraid and was comfortable at all times. The only thing that worried her was the pressing matter of bringing peace to this planet before it was too late. She doesn’t know when ‘too late’ is, but she knows things that perhaps she had no real way of knowing. Some months ago she had an argument with a friend about why America could possibly get anything out of invading Afghanistan, to which she replied, ‘for the resources of course’ her friend insisted there was nothing there to be had. However just over a month later the news reported that gold, silver and lithium etc had been found abundantly in Afghanistan.
After finding herself an hour late in meeting her client and actually still assuming her car clock must have been wrong even though she knew it hadn’t been wrong when she last looked. When the witness arrived at her client’s home and began the ‘sessions’ she saw her client gasp as both realized that her pants were soaked in a thick red blood. She was shocked and felt a little disoriented. She then drove straight home and told her partner, his sister and daughter who were a little alarmed and surprised but offered no real comfort . The bleeding stopped the next day and nothing like that has ever happened since.

The witness was driving home from work in the evening and had taken his usual backstreet route home, which would take him only five minutes on a day with bad traffic. Turning from the backstreet onto the main road, he noticed a large buildup of traffic, more than what would usually be expected, even in peak-hour traffic. Curious, he detoured from his path, to take a closer look. There was a dark figure slowly walking through the traffic, and it seemed everyone was slowing down, trying to get a better look. He had encountered shadow people before, but never like this. This one was not avoiding people’s gazes like they usually do. This one clearly wanted to be seen.
A workmate of the witness was also traveling through the same traffic jam, and he talked to him about it at work the next day. In the end they decided that he would report the occurrence and the main witness wouldn’t bother, as it did not worry him. About a week later, he tried talking to his friend again about the event, but he seemed distant and distracted about something. He resigned from his job within the week, and he never had a chance to talk to him about it again.

A woman was driving her ex and his son back home from a birthday dinner at a favorite restaurant and was coming along a two lane stretch of road when ahead of them they saw what appeared to look like a large white ball that had moved out onto the highway directly from a cemetery above. She said it began coming towards them as if it were trying to collide with the vehicle and the closer they got to this thing they had a better look at it. She described it as appearing to be half-animal, reptile, half-human with human limbs. It had two arms and two legs and was crawling on its belly. She hoped that the creature would exit the highway and into the woods to prevent getting hit but it just continued moving directly at them and the vehicle. She slammed on her brakes to avoid hitting it and at that point the creature went from to ‘spinning’ like a tornado right before it made contact with the front of the vehicle.
Then she said it went beneath the radiator and vanished. She, her ex and his son were all quite shaken and terrified and said that whatever the creature was it wasn’t anything from this world. She continued describing it as having two human arms and legs, mid body alligator or reptile and white as snow. It crawled on its stomach like reptile. He ex stated that during the encounter it felt like time had stood still. Everything just slowed down. All three of them agreed that they had a very eerie feeling of something very evil present before they encountered this thing.

Returning to the scene of where the main witness (involved in other encounters) and his girlfriend had seen a strange star display and had experienced electromagnetic effects. They sat in the car and waited. It seemed like an eternity passed. Finally, he saw something move, though not in the sky. Whatever it was, it was circling the car. Being dark he couldn’t get a good look at the figure, but he already knew what it was. Another or possibly the same ‘shadow man’ he had encountered before. Suddenly he stopped directly in front of the car, and the witness had an overpowering urge to harm it. Turning the key and starting the engine, he revved the motor, reaching for the gear stick to put the car in first. Suddenly, the figure put out an outstretched hand, palm facing them, as if telling him to stop. The witness refused, but the car seemed to follow his command, stalling at 3,000 rpms. Suddenly as quick as he’d appeared, the figure vanished, and once again, the spectacular star storm began. Attempts to start the car failed, and they quickly left on foot. Following these events, he had the car serviced, and nothing was found to be wrong with it.

After convincing his girlfriend once again that they had to return to the places where the previous experiences had taken place, they set out for a ‘final conflict’. They brought with them, iron bars, bags of salt and ‘holy water’. They knew what they were up against, but not how to properly fight it, so they figure they’d hit it with everything. Approaching the dreaded spot where the main witness had witnessed the traffic jam and shadow man, his iPod once again started cutting out. He was ecstatic. He was finally going to have solid proof, even if just for himself, that these things were real.
Approximately 200 meters away from the initial intersection, he reached to the back seat to ready his iron bar. The next minute there was a blinding light, and they were suddenly transported to the other side of Holden Hill. Three minutes had passed, but traveling no higher than the speed limit, it would have taken them between 10-15 minutes to travel that distance. His girlfriend and the witness stared blankly at each other, utter disbelief in their faces. He turned the car around and decided they would go back, but this time there was nothing. No shadows, no stars, no lights, no electrical interference, no car problems. It was as if the shadow man had found whatever he was looking for with them, and decided to leave on his own accord. Since these events the main witness cannot rest easy with the shadows. He feels their presence, always watching, ever waiting. He has never had a bad experience with what he can definitely identify as shadow people before, and he hopes never to have a negative encounter with them again. He feels that it meant no harm, but was perhaps ‘providing a warning’.

Excited to be in Ocean City the witness was outside on a deck on the first floor of a three floor condo building having a smoke, looking at the stars and watching the people across the street party on their 3rd floor deck. He was looking at the Orion Constellation and saw a falling star start from the left of Orion’s belt and continue through the bottom part of the constellation. The falling star was incredibly bright and it seemed like it took forever for it to finally burn out.
The people across the street left and went to the beach, so he went inside and got another smoke before he went to bed. He thinks it was about 15 minutes since seeing the falling star when he went back outside sat down and noticed a figure sitting at the patio table on the 2nd floor of the condo building across the street. He found it very strange because no one was occupying that unit. He was staring in disbelief how the strange figure looked. It was sitting at the table like a human would; with its left arm resting on the table and it appeared that his legs were crossed (for some reason the witness felt it was a male). The figure was tall, big, muscular, with a shadow/black like appearance and no visible features. The head was elongated and it was very large. The witness couldn’t believe he just sat there and stared since he feels he should had screamed and ran inside but somehow he didn’t. He could tell it knew that the he was there, but the witness eventually got up and left because it made no movement and he grew scared of what would happen. As he closed the sliding glass door after going inside the figure was still there.
That morning at daylight, he attempted to determine what could have made that figure on the deck but there was nothing on the deck but a table and 4 chairs.

The witness (involved in other incidents) woke up in the middle of the night and was paralyzed. She was able to move her eyes and hear her surroundings, but could not for the life of her move her body. She heard a commotion on the left side of the bedroom and as she turned her eyes towards that direction, she saw two small gray creatures communicating to each other. Not believing what she was seeing she began to panic when a third smaller gray came through the window with what seemed to be a mask in his hand. She began to scream but no sound came out her mouth, it was as she was screaming in her mind. As the gray humanoid approached her with the mask she felt a ringing/siren noise in her head and she apparently blacked out since she doesn’t remember seeing the gray humanoids depart. As soon as they left she was again able to move her body.

A father and son were parked on the side of the road in a heavily wooded area when a winged ‘monster’ casually glided up the road. It looked big enough to carry a full grown man away with no effort. When the wing flew over the hood of the car, they both instantly ducked down. The creature had a round human sized head with no beak and huge bat-like wings, the body was 5-6 ft in length easy, wing span was 25-30 ft easy, no feathers, bat-like skin, jet black, and a 4-5 ft skinny rat-like tail that stuck straight out. This creature didn’t flying like a bird it glided about 10 ft off the ground at a very slow speed. After 50 to 75 ft of gliding, it took one huge flap of the wings, never changing elevation and glided up the road until it disappeared into the woods. The adult witness is convinced that this creature lives ‘underground’ probably near some hot springs since it has no feathers.

Curiosity: Are There Secrets On Mars?

On Nov. 20th, NASA announced that the Mars rover Curiosity had apparently made a discovery "for the history books," but we'd have to wait a few weeks to learn what the new Red Planet find may be:

NASA has reportedly uncovered a significant finding on Mars, leading to speculation the U.S. space agency may hold evidence of past life on the Red Planet.

“This data is gonna be one for the history books. It’s looking really good,” geologist John Grotzinger of the California Institute of Technology, who said that NASA’s Curiosity rover has uncovered exciting new results from a sample of Martian soil recently scooped up and placed in the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument.

It remains unclear exactly what NASA has discovered on the planet. The space agency is reportedly conducting various tests to confirm data streamed from Mars to Earth.

Speculation over the potential finding comes just after the U.S. space agency announced a series of major findings regarding the surface of Mars and its atmosphere. NASA researchers using the car-sized mobile laboratory identified transient whirlwinds, mapped winds in relation to slopes, tracked daily and seasonal changes in air pressure, and linked rhythmic changes in radiation to daily atmospheric changes. The knowledge being gained about these processes is thought to be key to allowing scientists to better interpret evidence about environmental changes on Mars that may have led to conditions favorable for life. Continue reading at The Space Reporter

But wait - the next day, NASA started to roll back on the previous announcement....

WASHINGTON, Nov 21, 2012 (AFP) – NASA downplayed Wednesday talk of a major discovery by its Martian rover after remarks by the mission chief raised hopes it may have unearthed evidence life once existed on the Red Planet.

Excitement is building over soon-to-be-released results from NASA’s Curiosity rover, which is three months into a two-year mission to determine if Mars has ever been capable of supporting microbial life.

Its Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instruments have been sending back information as it hunts for compounds such as methane, as well as hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, that would mean life could once have existed there.

In an interview with US broadcaster National Public Radio, aired Tuesday, lead mission investigator John Grotzinger hinted at something major but said there would be no announcement for several weeks.

“We’re getting data from SAM,” he said. “This data is gonna be one for the history books. It’s looking really good.”A spokesman for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managing the project, appeared to pour cold water Wednesday on the hopes of space enthusiasts looking forward to an earth-shattering discovery.

“John was delighted about the quality and range of information coming in from SAM during the day a reporter happened to be sitting in John’s office last week. He has been similarly delighted by results at other points during the mission so far,” spokesman Guy Webster told AFP.

“The scientists want to gain confidence in the findings before taking them outside of the science team. As for history books, the whole mission is for the history books,” Webster said.

Scientists do not expect Curiosity to find aliens or living creatures but they hope to use it to analyze soil and rocks for signs the building blocks of life are present and may have supported life in the past.

The $2.5 billion Curiosity rover – which landed in Gale Crater on the Red Planet on August 6 – also aims to study the Martian environment to prepare for a possible human mission there in the coming years.

So...did NASA jump the gun by over-estimating the find? Or...has 'National Security' once again come into play? Ever since 'Ham the Chimp' there have been lingering questions about our space program. In particular...what is the actual intent of exploring space? What answers are we really searching for? What do you think?

Just the Facts?: Phantom Island 'Un-Discovered' -- Daytime Disk UFO -- Stranded (at Home) in China

Phantom Island 'Un-Discovered'

For more than a decade it has featured on the world's maps. Viewed from Google Earth, Sandy Island appears as a dark, tantalising sliver, set amid the shimmering vastness of the Pacific Ocean.

But when marine scientists arrived at the island in the Coral Sea off Australia they were in for something of a shock: it didn't exist. Where there was supposed to be a sandy outcrop complete with palm trees, a few coconuts and maybe a turtle there was merely blue undulating water.

The Australian scientists, led by Maria Seaton, a geologist at Sydney University, had embarked on a voyage to study plate tectonics. They spotted that the enigmatic island lay along their route.

But there were several puzzling discrepancies: though the island appeared on the Google Earth map, there were no images of it.

It had also featured for the past 12 years on the usually reliable world coastline database. But there was no sign of it on their sea chart.

Dr Steven Micklethwaite, a crew member from the University of Western Australia, recalled: "We went upstairs to the bridge and found that the navigation charts the ship uses didn't have it.

"And so at that point we thought: Well, who do we trust? Do we trust Google Earth or do we trust the navigation charts? "

The scientist added: "This was one of those intriguing questions. It wasn't far outside of our path. We decided to actually sail through the island ... Lo and behold there was nothing! The ocean floor didn't ever get shallower than 1300 metres below the wave-base. There's an island in the middle of nowhere that doesn't actually exist."

Micklethwaite told the Sydney Morning Herald that the ship's captain was nervous about running aground and proceeded cautiously as they made their "un-discovery". "We all had a good giggle at Google as we sailed through the island. It was one of those happy circumstances in science. You come across something somebody has never noticed before."

The scientists would now send the correct data to the authorities to get the world map fixed, he said.

The non-discovery took place during a 25-day expedition by Australia's Marine National Facility, on board its RV Southern Surveyor research vessel. Had the island existed it would have belonged to France, since its location near the archipelago of New Caledonia is in French territorial waters. (If real and emphatically Gallic, it would presumably have been called Île de Sable, rather than the less than inspiring Sandy Island.)

Speaking on Thursday, Danny Dorling, president of the British Society of Cartographers, said it was not surprising that the error had crept in. "You can't create a perfect map. You never will," he said. "Our current world map is a collection of highly accurate satellite maps and some of the oldest data collected from Admiralty charts."

The mistake would have been surprising if the location had been a busy shipping lane or populated area, Dorling said. "The Coral Sea is in the middle of nowhere."

Humans have been making maps for thousands of years. They probably predate writing. (The earliest – a cave painting 30,000 years old – shows some early humans in a rectangle.) According to Dorling, maps serve two purposes: one practical, to help us navigate and find our way around; the other existential, to give us a sense of perspective, and to define our place on a large and ever-changing planet. "It gives you a sense of identity," he said.

Dorling also said that in the case of Sandy Island it was probably human error that had led to its creation. Charts were, after all, originally compiled by sailors using a watch and measuring longitude, with ancient sailors travelling by the stars. Far from being fixed, the world map is mutable too: with new islands and archipelagoes appearing following volcanic eruptions, and others disappearing in the same way.

The cartographer said it was just possible that Sandy Island – now a non-island, according to its Wikipedia entry – would have the last laugh.

"It's unlikely someone made this island up. It's more likely that they found one and put it in the wrong location. I wouldn't be surprised if the island does actually exist, somewhere nearby."


The legendary island has been the subject of discussion and parody since ancient times. According to Plato, Atlantis sank into the ocean "in a single day and night of misfortune". This was 10,000 years ago. No-one has been able to find it since. Numerous locations have been suggested: the Mediterranean, the middle of the Atlantic, Turkey, Crete, Bolivia, Peru, Mexico and southwestern Andalusia. Despite its enduring appeal, scholars can't agree if Atlantis really ever was a naval power, or a historical fiction dating back to earliest times.


Invented by Jonathan Swift, Laputa is a flying island or rock that features in Gulliver's Travels. Its residents use magnetic levitation to manoeuvre the island in different directions. Laputan society is divided between the educated - who practice maths and astronomy - and servants. A tyrant is in charge; he crushes his enemies by landing on them.

San Serriffe

Less famous, perhaps, than Atlantis but no less worthy, San Serriffe is a fictional island nation created by journalists at the Guardian. The nation was invented as an April Fool's Day spoof in 1977; a description of it ran over 10 pages and appeared to fool some people. San Serriffe was located in the Southern Ocean (not far from Sandy Island, relatively speaking) Its inhabitants were called the Flong; for many years the autocratic General Pica was its ruler; happily, it later became democratic. - Guardian

Daytime Disk UFO - Ulster County, New York

A reader has forwarded their recent report to NUFORC:

Occurred: 11/19/2012 11:50 (Entered as: 11/19/12 11:50)
Reported: 11/19/2012 1:49:21 PM 13:49
Posted: 11/19/2012
Location: Saugerties/Kingston, NY
Shape: Disk
Duration:7 seconds

Rocking, slow moving disk high in sky visible due to reflected sunlight

I was traveling south on the New York State Thruway between exits 20 (Saugerties) and 19 (Kingston). The sun was quite bright overhead - not visible to me. Ahead of me were high flying clouds approaching from the south (they then totally dispersed, on the trip back they were nowhere to be seen.) These were, again, HIGH flying clouds.

I was going 62 miles per hour (I know this because I watch my speedometer carefully and the car in front of me was a bit slower than usual). I had reached (approximately) the mid-way point (mile marker 96-95) between Saugerties and Kingston exits which are eight miles from one another. I’m unsure the exact direction since the road has many wide curves but it was the southbound lane (two lane thruway, I was in the right hand lane). It was approximately 11:50 AM (I checked the car clock a couple of minutes later at 11:54). I noticed a very bright, gleaming object reflecting sunlight. It appeared in the sky immediately to my left in front of me (impossible to know how high it was.) It was not low flying, it had no wings or rotors, and if it were at a cruising altitude of a commercial airliner, it would have been huge. It flew much higher than a small plane could or any helicopter, it was not a dirigible or anything easily identifiable. As directed, if I had to compare i! ts size to that of the sun (mid-day) it appeared flatter top and bottom, and perhaps 3/4 as wide.

It drifted "slowly" (in an easy manner) more toward the center of my windshield (this all took place in 7 to 10 seconds), stopped, rocked two times (like a plane rocking its wings) and slowly and smoothly went back to the original position. It was metallic (which caused the sun to reflect off it as I stated) and shaped rather like a disc (saucer). The road then curved widely and treed area came between me and that portion of the sky for several seconds (perhaps another eight) before I could get a glimpse of that piece of the sky again (which was extremely identifiable because of the formation of high flying clouds in an otherwise crystal blue sky). The object was no longer visible.

When I reached my destination and parked, it so happened that the formation of clouds was directly in my line of vision. I was able, standing still, to see that they were quite high. A commercial jetliner was climbing to cruising altitude (I am 40 miles from both Albany and Newburgh airports, so planes climbing are commonly seen). The plane appeared to be almost at cruising altitude and was quite high. It entered the cloud structures and I lost sight of it. I believe that the object I saw while driving also got "lost" into the cloud structure which explains why it was suddenly no longer visible (as the plane was suddenly no longer visible). This suggests to me that the object I saw was flying as high as, or close to, the altitude of the commercial jetliner (since the same formation of clouds provided cover for both, once entered).

The most interesting aspect was the "rocking," a lazy but precise maneuver, before it went back toward the direction where I had first seen it. It was oval, as I said, rather like ( ) but with brackets top/bottom and very bright due to reflected sunlight. It was obviously under control (the rocking indicates that to me) and was being deliberately maneuvered.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and she seemed to us to be quite eloquent and sincere in her description of her sighting. We suspect that she is a highly reliable witness. PD))

Pope Benedict Disputes Jesus’ Date of Birth

Pope Benedict XVI has revealed in the third installment of his trilogy, dedicated to the life of Christ, that Jesus may have been born earlier than previously thought. The calendar we use today, which commences with the birth of Christ and was created by a Dionysius Exiguus, a 6th century monk, may be mistaken. According to the Telegraph, the Pope explains in his book that Exiguus, who is considered the inventor of the Christian calendar, “made a mistake in his calculations by several years. The actual date of Jesus’ birth was several years before.” The suggestion that Jesus wasn’t actually born on Dec. 25 has been tirelessly debated by theologians, historians and spiritual leaders, but what makes this case different is that now the leader of the Catholic Church is the one asking the questions.

Pope Benedict’s book, Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives was published on Tuesday. Like the previous two installments, it’s predicted to be a best seller, and a million copies of the book have already been printed. It is expected that the book will be translated into another 20 languages for publication in 72 countries. The Infancy Narratives follows the life of Jesus from conception to his presentation in the temple at the age of 12. The Pope describes this third book as a “small antechamber” to the trilogy on Jesus of Nazareth, reports the Vatican Press Office. Continue reading at Pope Benedict Disputes Jesus’ Date of Birth

Stranded (at Home) in China

*An elderly couple refuse to move as a road is built around their apartment

*They insist the government's relocation compensation is not enough

A lone apartment building stands in the middle of a newly built road after an elderly couple refused to relocate.

Luo Baogen and his wife insist on living in the half-demolished building in the city of Wenling, in Zhejiang province, China because they believe that the relocation compensation offered by the government is not enough.

Now the only building left standing, the five storey block is a strange sight as cars drive around it while the couple remain living inside.

To ensure the couple’s safety, adjacent rooms in the building have been left intact but all their neighbours have moved out, according to local media.

The road paved through the Xiazhangyang village leads to the Wenling railway station and is yet to be officially opened.

Mr Baogen and his wife believe that the compensation on offer would not be enough to cover their rebuilding costs.

In the People's Republic of China, during most of the Communist era, private ownership of property was abolished, making it easy for residents to be moved on - but now the laws have been tightened up and it is illegal to demolish property by force without an agreement.

Property owners in China that refuse to move to make way for development are known as 'Nail Householders' referring to a stubborn nail that is not easy to remove from a piece of old wood and cannot be pulled out with a hammer.

Earlier this year, Hong Chunqin, 75, and her husband Kung, who live in the two dilapidated buildings with their two sons, had initially agreed to sell the property in Taizhou, in Zhejiang province and accepted £8,000 in compensation.

But then she changed her mind and refunded the money once work on the road had started.

Earlier this year, Niu Chuangen and Zhang Zhongyun dared to stand in the way of a local property developer in Zaozhuang, in the Shandong province.

As a result, the resolute couple, both in their 60s, have been left stranded on their tiny spot of land, while all around them the ground is dug up and skyscrapers erected.

The distraught pair were regularly threatened by gangsters and have had to fend over a number of attempts to illegally demolish their ramshackle home.

They were cut off from utilities in 2009 when a local developer started the enormous earthworks involved in building dozens of high-rise residential buildings in the area.

In another case, one family among 280 others at the site of a six storey shopping mall being built in Chongqing refused to leave their home for two years.

Developers cut their power and water, and excavated a 10-meter deep pit around their home, which their family had inhabited for three generations.

The owners broke into the construction site, reoccupied it, and flew a Chinese flag on top and then Yang Wu, a local martial arts champion, used nunchakus to make a staircase to the house and threatened to beat any authorities who attempted to evict him.

The owners turned down an offer of £300,000 but eventually settled with the developers in 2007. - Daily Mail

This Week On 'Beyond The Edge Radio': Brian Cano / Chris Mancuso - Investigators 'SCARED!' - 'Haunted Collector'

This week we welcome Brian Cano and Chris Mancuso From the paranormal investigation group 'SCARED!' and Syfy's 'Haunted Collector' to 'Beyond The Edge Radio'.

Brian Cano is the Tech Manager on the hit SyFy show, Haunted Collector. Best known for mixing old and new techniques of investigating, he often finds himself doing the physical tasks on the show, such as crawling under houses and up into attics. Ultimately, his goal is to quantify, measure and get empirical evidence to support the claims of paranormal activity reported while maintaining his skeptical edge.

As the resident parapsychologist of the SCARED! crew, he first recognized his desire to explore the unknown at a young age. Growing up on Staten Island, New York, Brian often took note of abandoned buildings recessed within the woods near his home during Sunday drives with his parents. They called to him, sparking his imagination and his curiosity. Alone or with friends, Brian began exploring the old and abandoned buildings, despite the countless rumors of what may have happened within their walls. Tall tales of Satanic activity, missing children or ghostly sightings were often told, but instead of deterring Brian from his new found hobby, this element of fear and danger only served to add to the allure for him. Since then, Brian has been looking into the darkness and exploring the dangers that come with the decay of civilization’s footprint. Expanding his experiences in urban exploration to include paranormal investigation, there are few places he will not go.

Since 2002 he’s been recording his adventures as one of the creators of SCARED!, a series of documentaries on paranormal investigation and urban exploration. Producer, graphic artist, editor, parapsychologist…in 2009 he added Internet Radio Host to his list of roles as he host of SCARED! on the Airwaves!, a weekly internet radio show which served as an official companion to the documentary series. The show is on indefinite hiatus, but he still appears as a guest on many internet radio shows, including a recent guest host spot on Unknown Origins Radio.

Brian has also appeared on the Travel Channel’s series, Most Terrifying Places as well as on the morning show, AM Arizona. Even when not a featured speaker, he manages to pop up on such shows as Celebrity Ghost Stories and the Sundance Channel’s Love/Lust: The Paranormal.

Brian’s work has been praised in several publications, including TAPS Paramagazine and Haunted Times Magazine. Various episodes of SCARED! have won awards at several film festivals.

Christopher Mancuso is a filmmaker and paranormal investigator from Staten Island, New York. Since 2002 he has served as the Lead Investigator for SCARED! an award winning series of paranormal investigation/urban exploration documentaries, which he produces, directs and edits with long-time friend, Brian J. Cano. Once a hardcore skeptic, his personal experiences in the paranormal field over the last few years have adjusted his viewpoint and transformed him to being what he considers a “skeptical believer”.

Outside of the paranormal, Chris is a fiction writer. He has written over a dozen screenplays. Several of his shorts have been produced by other local filmmakers and won awards, including Dylan’s Tree and Between Floors. His work as Co-Director on John Zaffis: The World Within documentary as well as the SCARED! series has earned him praise in TAPS Para-magazine and Haunted Times Magazine.

Chris has been a guest on the televised morning program AM Arizona and most recently he appeared on the Sundance Channel in the paranormal episode of Love/Lust. He has been a guest on Darkness Radio as well as numerous Internet radio shows. Chris lectures at various colleges, events and conventions around the country.

The Allagash Abductions

The following narrative details a multiple alien abduction that transpired in the state of Maine during August 1976. The Allagash Waterway abductions are an integral part of ufology and one of the definitive scenarios used for understanding the alien agenda. This case gained worldwide attention when it was dramatized in an episode of television's "Unsolved Mysteries."


Twin brothers Jack and Jim Weiner, along with their friends Chuck Rak and Charlie Foltz, became participants in an event involving a UFO sighting, missing time, and medical procedures performed by beings unknown. Not only were the four men fishing buddies, but they were all art students, having met at the Massachusetts College of Art. They set out for what should have been an uneventful, relaxing fishing trip. It was not to be. After being on the waterway for a time, the four fishermen had canoed to Eagle Lake. They had no luck there, and returned to the bank. As they were beginning to get low on provisions, they decided to do a little fishing at night. To be on the safe side, they built a roaring fire on the bank to use as a landmark in case they became turned around on the lake.

After a short period of time, all four of the men's attention was drawn to a large, bright light in the sky over the lake. It was much more brilliant than a star. Only a couple of hundred yards away, the UFO was hovering over a group of trees. The object began to move, and change colors, from red to green, then to a whitish yellow. The men were watching the object in awe, wondering what it might be. At this time, they estimated it to be about 80 feet in diameter. Charlie Foltz decided to signal to it with his flashlight. At once, the UFO began to move toward them. They were being watched.

The object silently made its way toward the men. They began a dash to the shore, paddling as fast as they could. A light from the object beamed down and engulfed the men and their canoe. The next thing they knew, they were back on the bank. Foltz again signaled the UFO with his flashlight-but this time it rose upward, and departed from their view. Then they noticed that the large fire they had started only a short time ago, was already burned to ashes, which should have taken several hours. What had happened to them?

It was obvious to the four buddies that they were missing several hours of time. Little was said between them at this time. They packed up their belongs, and headed back home. As time went by, the events of that terrible night on Allagash would begin to have an effect on their lives. The first man to suffer was Jack Weiner. He began to have awful nightmares of strange beings with long necks, and large heads. He could see himself being examined, while the other three men sat idly by.

The strange humanoid beings in Jack's nightmares were described as having metallic-like, glowing eyes with no lids. Their hands were like an insect's with only four fingers. The other three men also were having dreams of a similar nature. Finally, in 1988, Jim Weiner decided to visit a UFO conference, which was hosted by author Raymond Fowler. When the conference ended, he talked to Fowler, and related his remarkable encounter on the Allagash Waterway.

Fowler was very experienced in dealing with the exact problem that Jim, his brother and the two other fishermen were facing. He suggested to Jim that all four of the men undergo regressive hypnosis, a type of hypnosis that recovers lost memories. After the four men completed their sessions, it was determined that all of them had been abducted by strange beings from the UFO that engulfed them and their canoe on the Allagash Waterway. Part of the abduction involved very sensitive personal issues of the taking of fluid (semen) samples, and other humiliating medical tests.

The men all recalled the abduction procedure-some would recall one part of it, and some another part, but when combined, they showed a complete picture of a typical alien abduction. Since the men were all artists, they were able to draw striking depictions of the examination room, the instruments used, and the aliens. This information would be invaluable to those who study the phenomena of alien abduction. The four friends would also take lie-detector tests, which they all passed, further verifying their encounter. -


On Friday night, August 20, 1976, four young art students in their early twenties left Boston, Massachusetts for a canoe and camping trip in a wilderness area of Northern Maine along the Allagash River. The group consisted of identical twins, Jack and Jim Weiner, Charlie Foltz and Chuck Rak. Upon arrival at a staging point, they hired a pontoon airplane which flew them and their canoes to Telos Lake on the Allagash Waterway.

During the next several days they canoed and camped along the Waterway. On the evening of Thursday, August 26, they reached Eagle Lake, set up camp and decided to go night fishing for trout. The pitch darkness of the area necessitated the building of a huge bonfire to mark their campsite so that they could find their way back to it. Shortly after beginning to fish, Chuck became aware of a feeling of being watched. He told us that:

“I turned toward the direction from where I felt this and saw a large bright sphere of colored light hovering motionless and soundless about 200-300 feet above the southeastern rim of the cove."

Chuck yelled for the others to look behind them. There, rising above the trees was a huge oval glowing object. As their eyes became adapted to its intense brightness, a gyroscopic motion was noted, as if there were pathways of energy flowing equatorially and longitudinally from pole to pole. This divided the sphere into four oscillating quadrants of bright colored light. The color changes were very liquid and enveloping, as if the entire object had a plasmatic motion to it, like a thick sauce does as it starts a rolling boil.

Charlie grabbed a flashlight and blinked it at the object. Instantly, the huge rising glowing object came to an abrupt halt and began to slowly approach the canoe. Simultaneously, a tube-shaped beam of light erupted from the object and hit the water. A glowing ring with a dark center reflected on the water's surface, indicating that the beam was hollow. The object and its beam of light began moving toward the canoe. Terrified, the campers began paddling frantically toward their bonfire and camp as the beam swept across the lake directly at them and engulfed them.

It was from this point on that the conscious memories of the four differed according to each witness' vantage point. The next thing Charlie remembered was paddling for shore and standing at the campsite with the others, watching the object move away.

Chuck Rak remembers staying in the canoe after the others had piled out in panic onto the shore. Transfixed, still holding his idle paddle, he could not take his eyes off the object.

Jack and Jim were able to consciously remember a bit more. Jack said that "It was just behind us and I could see that we were never going to outrun the Beam. It was advancing too fast and I remember thinking, 'Holy shit! This is it! We'll never get away.' The next thing I knew, we were on the shore getting out of the canoe looking directly at the object which was now about 20 or 30 feet above the water. The beam was coming out of the bottom of it like the object was sitting on the beam. It hovered there, right in front of us, completely silent for what seemed like four or five minutes.

"Suddenly the beam was pointing up towards the sky. The object began to move up and away from us towards the southwestern sky and then shot into the stars and was gone in just a second."

Jim Weiner said that "There was no mistake that it was coming directly to us. Then I remember standing on the lakeshore watching the object hovering above the lake 50 to 75 yards in front of us . . . Then the search beam went upward into the sky and we saw it moving away at a tremendous speed. We all seemed to be in a state of shock . . . We just stood there unable to move or talk."

When the strange anesthetizing effect wore off, Chuck got out of the canoe and joined the others as they trudged dreamily up the beach to their camp. Even in this state, they were dumbfounded when they realized what had happened to the huge bonfire that had just been blazing several minutes ago. .

"When we left to go fishing," said Jim, "we set very large logs on the fire to bum for a good 2 to 3 hours. The entire experience seemed to last, at the most, 15 or 20 minutes. Yet the fire was completely burned down to red. coals." At that time, they had no memory of what happened during the time it took for their huge bonfire to burn down. This would remain a puzzle to them for years.

A few years later, Jim suffered a head injury which caused tempero-limbic epilepsy. During treatment, Jim's doctors asked him to report any unusual experiences that might be symptomatic of his condition. Jim described strange experiences that he and his friends had experienced since the UFO encounter. These included awaking at night to see strange creatures, levitation from bed, and temporary paralysis while something was done to the genitals. He also described their encounter with a UFO and the period of missing time. Jim's doctors advised him to contact a UFO researcher as they felt that Jim and his friends may have been involved in a UFO abduction experience. Jim contacted me during one of my UFO lectures in the Boston area.

In January of 1989, I initiated a formal investigation with MUFON Investigator and CEIII/IV specialist, David Webb (Solar Physicist) and with MUFON Consultant, Anthony (Tony) Constantino (Professional Hypnotist). It was conducted in a careful and meticulous manner over a period of 24 months.

It was obvious to us that the period of missing time had to be sandwiched between sighting the object and reaching shore. The beam of light hitting the canoe seemed to be the dividing point between memory and amnesia. During the first of a long series of hypnosis sessions, it was decided to concentrate on this segment of the terrifying encounter.

Under hypnosis, all four witnesses relived detailed and traumatic UFO abduction experiences during the period of missing time. All were transferred from their canoe into the UFO by the hollow tube-like beam of light. On board, they encountered strange humanoid creatures that exerted some kind of mind control over them so that they could not resist their demands.

All were made to undress and sit on a plastic-like bench in an area illuminated by diffuse white light. After looking at their eyes and in their mouths with a pencil-sized rod with a light on its tip, the aliens placed them in a harness and flexed their arms and legs. Then, one by one they were made to lie on a table where each was examined by a number of strange hand-held and larger machine-like instruments that were lowered over their bodies. During this segment of the examination, the alien entities removed samples of saliva, skin scrapings, blood, feces, urine and sperm from each of the abductees.

After the examinations, the abductees were made to dress and enter another room which had a round portal in one of its walls. They were lined up and made to walk into the portal. Strange sensations surged through their bodies as they found themselves floating down the hollow beam of light into their canoe which was now in shallow water near their campsite. The tube-like light seemed to hold the canoe steady as each was placed in it in the same seating positions they were in prior to the abduction.

As the hypnosis sessions continued, much detail was recovered about their on board experience. Also, it was discovered that the twins had had bedtime visitations by alien creatures and abduction experiences since early childhood. These experiences were relived in vivid detail under hypnosis.

During the course of the investigation an extraordinary event occurred. Jack and his wife Mary were abducted from their remote mountain home in Townshend, Vermont.

During the night of May 20, 1988, Jack's dog woke him up when he scratched at the door wanting to go out to relieve itself. When Jack got up to put him out, he was shocked to see a blue light shining through the kitchen window. He went out to look and saw a glowing object hovering over the field adjoining his house. He decided to bring the dog back in. In the morning, he thought he had dreamed about the whole thing. However, under hypnosis, he relived a shared abduction experience with his wife in minute detail. Mary only remembered dreaming about deer with big eyes coming to their bedside. She did not respond to hypnosis. The following is an excerpt from Jack's hypnosis sessions.

"It's blue. A blue light. And I think, 'That's funny. That's not the moon.' And then I go to the window and I look out the window and what I see is amazing. I see a big, bright light and it's right over the truck in the field outside the house. And I'm thinking, 'Oh my God! I can't believe that!' And so I say, 'Mary, get up. Get up and look!' And I run to the door and I go out the door and I'm running towards the light up in the field . . . Then I see the dog running alongside me . . . And so I pick him up and I run back to the house . . . The light is still there and it's moving . . . And then I put the dog back in bed and I'm thinking, 'I don't want to do this. I don't want to do this now!' I don't want to look at the light . . . So I'm going back to bed. . . . And I'm thinking, 'I don't want to deal with this now. Why are they here now?' And I'm scared . . . so I pull the covers over my head . . . and Mary's next to me. And then I know, I know that something's in the house. I just know that they're there and I'm under the covers and I think, 'Oh God, oh God! Why are they here now? I don't want this to happen.' (Gasps) And then the covers move and I feel something on the cover . . . And then the covers are down and I'm looking there and I was right. They're right there! Oh God! They're right there, right next to my bed . . . It has big eyes and a big head and it's dark and there's light behind it coming in the door. And it's just taking the covers away and I don't want to look at it . . . And I look at Mary . . . There's another one there and it's next to Mary. And I wish that I could do something but I can't. I have to do what they want. And the light is out there and they want me to go out there . . . They're lifting me. Mary's standing and they're making us move towards light . . . And the dog isn't doing anything. We're through the door . . . We walk up the lawn and I feel like I'm floating . . . our feet are on the ground, but my feet are not doing what I want them to."

Jack and Mary were brought to stand in front of a huge house-sized glowing object sitting on a blue light that enveloped its underside. The glow around the object itself was changing colors from white to yellow to orange and purple and back to white. No noise emanated from the~ object, but the air was filled with the acrid smell of ozone. Then, Jack and Mary were made to walk into the blue light under the object. Instantaneously they were transferred inside of the glowing object. Mary was separated from Jack, who was made to undergo examinations similar to the one that he and his friends had experienced twelve years earlier. After the examination, Mary rejoined Jack and they were literally floated across the lawn from the craft to their house, through the unopened front door and to their bedroom, where they went back to bed in a strange lethargic state of mind.

This experience left physical evidence behind in the form of burns on the bottom of Jack's feet. Jack also received a biopsy-like scoop mark above his ankle during another abduction. The scoop mark was located just above a scar left behind during an operation for an anomalous lump that had appeared overnight on Jack's leg several years prior. Jack's local doctor thought it was a cyst, but was unable to drain it so referred Jack to a surgeon who removed it. Jack was told that local pathologists did not know what it was and that it had been sent to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, for further analysis. However, when we checked Jack's medical records, we found that it was sent to military pathologists in Washington, D.C., where it was examined by a United States Air Force Colonel. Attempts for further information about the anomalous lump were thwarted as the surgeon would not cooperate with our enquiry.

During the course of the investigation we conducted witness background checks, examined medical records and diaries, cross-checked witness testimony, coordinated witness psychological profile tests, correlated witness accounts with other reports and conducted fifteen hypnosis sessions over a period of 14 months. The final 10-volume report numbered over 700 pages. It was made available to UFO researchers and became the basis of a book on UFO abductions to be published by Time-Life and several TV documentaries.

In summation, this UFO abduction case is unique in a number of ways. It involved four credible persons who all consciously shared the same close-encounter with a UFO in 1976 during a canoe trip along the Allagash Waterway in Northern Maine. All percipients experienced missing time and relived traumatic complementary UFO abduction experiences under hypnosis. Two of the abductees are identical twins, which was of great interest to their alien abductors. Our enquiry revealed that each of the witnesses exhibited the typical benchmarks characteristic of other abductees. Lastly, all of the witnesses are artists and were able to provide detailed sketches of different aspects of their experiences. This has provided the UFO research community some excellent impressions relating to the appearance of alien beings, their instruments and their craft.

The many-faceted and intriguing elements of The Allagash Abductions also provided a catalyst for a detailed correlation of the witnesses' experiences with benchmarks exhibited in other abduction reports being investigated and studied. Such were derived from an exhaustive survey of 270 reported UFO abductions in the United States and abroad compiled by Dr. Thomas E. Bullard of the University of Indiana. Some major similarities noted were: alien interest in the reproduction system and the extraction of sperm from each of the witnesses; a series of UFO and related paranormal experiences that dated back to early childhood; physical marks on the percipients' bodies typical of those on the bodies of other UFO abductees; and, the overnight appearance of a lump above the tibia of one of the twins.

In addition, all witnesses were subjected to detailed interrogations, rigorous character reference checks, 12 recorded/transcribed hypnotic regression sessions and a battery of psychological profile tests. We also examined a number of alternate theories advanced to explain UFO abductions: hoaxes, fantasy-prone personalities, psychoses, birth trauma memories and archetypical images from the collective unconscious. Each of these theories was critiqued 'and eliminated in the light of the evidence collected during our investigation.

The investigation concluded that the moral character of the witnesses, the graphic reliving of their experiences under hypnosis and the extraordinary correlations between their experience and that of others provided overwhelming evidence that their experiences were objective in nature. Such evidence combined with typical physical effects on the witnesses' bodies prompted me to evaluate this case in the great significance category. - Raymond E.

Just the Facts?: NY State Says 'No' Protecting Bigfoot -- Man Arrested For Telling Kids Santa Not Real -- Woman Mummifies Husband

NY State DEC states that Bigfoot will not be protected

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation says there is no reason to protect Bigfoot since it does not exist. According to DEC Chief Wildlife Biologist Gordon Batcheller, there is 'no such thing as Bigfoot'. In a letter to Peter Wierner, the founder of the Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo, who called for a banned on hunting Squatches in New York, Batcheller stated:

The mythical animal does not exist in nature or otherwise. I understand, however, that some well organized hoaxes or pranks have occurred, leading some people to believe that such an animal does live. However, the simple truth of the matter is that there is no such animal anywhere in the world. I am sorry to disappoint you. However, no program or action in relation to mythical animals is warranted.

Russian Woman Mummified Husband for ‘Resurrection’

A headless mummified body found in a ditch in central Russia was there because of a failed Biblical miracle, not murder, Yaroslavl Region investigators said on Monday.

The man, a Pentecostal missionary, died of an illness, but his wife, a member of the same Christian denomination, preserved the corpse for three years, the local branch of the Investigative Committee said.

The woman expected him to return to life, the report said.

The mummified body was found in the village of Semibratovo in July, stashed in a plastic bag. It was missing an arm and head, soon discovered in a nearby trash dump.

The committee opened a case on murder charges, but eventually discovered the truth was quite different.

The man, whose name was withheld, worked as a missionary for the Pentecostals, including in the Siberian republic of Buryatia, the investigators said.

The family led an isolated life, with their five children brought up by the missionary’s wife, a certified preschool teacher.

The head of the family expired in 2009, but his wife could not bring herself to accept it, the report said. She preserved the body in the apartment and told the children he would come back to life.

The children were made to attend to their late father every day, speaking to him and “feeding” him broth. They reported to their mother that he conversed with them, but she never entered his room, afraid that contacting him prematurely could spoil the resurrection.

The family kept acquaintances at bay by telling them the man was too ill to speak to anyone. They used air fresheners to mask the odor of the rotting body.

The pretend play continued until last summer, when the family decided to relocate elsewhere in the region. Fearing that the body would be discovered, two of the missionary’s three daughters, aged 9 and 14, carried the corpse away to dump it. The arm and the head broke away in the process and had to be discarded separately.

The case was closed without any charges against the woman, who did not need hospitalization, the investigators said. But child protection services were looking into the incident. - RIA


Woman charged for sex with human skeleton

“I have never heard of a case like this and neither have my colleagues, so I dare to say that this kind of case is quite uncommon,” prosecutor Kristina Ehrenborg-Staffas told The Local.

A 37-year-old woman, who was arrested in September, was formally charged on Tuesday at the Gothenburg District Court for the crime of “violating the peace of the dead” (brott mot griftesfriden).

The prosecutor could not explain how the woman had managed to collect almost an entire skeleton, but explained that the human remains had been used in an “unethical” way.

"In the confidential section of the investigation we have material which indicates she used them in sexual situations," the prosecutor told the TT news agency.

The woman is believed to have used the human bones for sexual gratification. The evidence that the prosecution presented to the press on Tuesday included two CDs labelled “My necrophilia” and “My first experience” which contained a number of document files and pictures.

However, a psychological evaluation of the woman shows that she is not mentally ill, at least not in any legal sense of the term.

“Some of the photos show a woman licking a skull," Ehrenborg-Staffas told The Local.

"We claim it’s her, but she claims it's someone else and that she found the pictures on the internet.”

The prosecutor believes the woman is "fascinated" with death.

“She has a lot of photos of morgues and chapels, and documents about how to have sex with recently deceased and otherwise dead people,” Ehrenborg-Staffas told The Local.

“You have to ask yourself why she would have those pictures.”

Meanwhile, Katarina Öberg, head of the centre of Andrology and Sexual Medicine at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, admitted that this was the first time she had heard of such a case in Sweden.

“During my ten years I have never had a patient with necrophilia. Although, I guess it is not really something that one confesses to having,” she told The Local.

Evidence also included pictures from a morgue, which were found in a secret compartment in the woman's home, alongside body bags and a drill.

Police emphasized, however, that they had no proof the woman had been digging up graves, according to TT.

The woman pleaded not guilty and claimed she had not done anything illegal.

“She admits to having the bones, but says she collected them out of a historical and archaeological interest,” Ehrenborg-Staffas said.

According to the prosecution, the woman has also sold skulls over the internet.

The latest transaction was between the woman and a person in Uppsala, eastern Sweden. The buyer had allegedly stocked up on three skulls and a spine.

The strange case came to the attention of police by chance after they were informed that a gunshot had been fired from the woman’s apartment in September.

She had also reportedly bragged to some nearby children about keeping knives and dead people in her apartment.

When officers entered her apartment, they immediately called for back-up after finding skeleton parts and knives in the woman’s living room.

At first the woman was arrested on suspicion of murder, but these charges have now been changed to violating the peace of the dead.

If found guilty, the woman faces penalties ranging from fines up to a maximum of two years in prison. - The Local
