Daily 2 Cents: Possible Remains of the Buddha Found in China -- Zimbabwe UFO Child Contactee Speaks Publicly For The 1st Time


Possible Remains of the Buddha Found in China

NANJING, CHINA—A skull bone that may have belonged to the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, was discovered in China hidden inside a model of a stupa, or Buddhist shrine used for meditation. A report in Live Science explains that the 1,000-year-old model, which measures around 4 feet by 1.5 feet, was found inside a stone chest in a crypt under the Grand Bao’en Temple in Nanjing. Inscriptions engraved on the chest explain that it was constructed during the reign of Emperor Zhenzong (r. A.D. 997-1022) during the Song Dynasty. An inscription found inside the chest explains that after the Buddha entered paranirvana, breaking the cycle of death and rebirth, his remains were divided into 84,000 shares, of which 19 were sent to China. These included the skull bone, which was found inside a gold casket, which was itself inside a silver casket. The archaeologists who made the discovery are agnostic as to whether the bone actually belonged to the Buddha. Buddhist monks have since buried the bone in another temple. For more, go to “Buddhism, in the Beginning.”

Autistic Boy Gains Ability to Speak After Just 2 Days of Cannabis Oil Treatment

At 10 months of age, Kalel Santiago of Puerto Rico was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma. He endured chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and surgery for two years—and survived. Then he was diagnosed with something permanent: severe autism that disabled him from speaking.

“While he was in the hospital, we noticed he didn’t speak at all and had some behavior that wasn’t right, like hand flapping, and walking on his toes,” his father Abiel Gomez Santiago told Yahoo News. “But we waited until he was 3 and cancer-free to look at his behavior.”

According to Yahoo, “He and his wife Gladys — also parents to two older boys, now 18 and 20 — did a cram course in educating themselves on autism. They tried various schools and therapies and eventually found impressive success with a unique surf-therapy school near their home.”

Eventually, the Santiago family stumbled upon a treatment of real potency and potential: CBD oil.

Through a fundraising program, they were able to receive a tiny bottle of the oil. Kalel was given oral doses twice a day.

Within just two days, he was finally able to speak. “He surprised us in school by saying the vowels, A-E-I-O-U. It was the first time ever,” Abiel said. “You can’t imagine the emotion we had, hearing Kalel’s voice for the first time. It was amazing. The teacher recorded him and sent it to my wife and me and we said well, the only different thing we have been doing is using the CBD.”

Soon after, he began using consonants, too, speaking like his parents never thought possible. “He said, ‘amo mi mama,’ ‘I love my mom,’” Abiel says. “I don’t know how to thank [the CBD oil makers].” - Autistic Boy Gains Ability to Speak After Just 2 Days of Cannabis Oil Treatment

Man drowns in lake while grabbling for fish

OXFORD, Miss. —A man has died at a lake near Oxford while grabbling for catfish.

Wesley Loptien, 30, died Saturday at Sardis Lake after going into the water to catch the fish with his hands, the Oxford Eagle reported.

Greg Raimondo of the Vicksburg District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said a friend noticed that Loptien had been underwater longer than usual and went in to look for him. He eventually found Loptien entangled in a root ball. The friend was able to free Loptien, but it was too late.

Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy said Loptien was pronounced dead at the lake.

Loptien's friend, Jason Foster, said Loptien had been grabbling since he was about 17 years old. Loptien was using respirators when he went underwater. - Man drowns in lake while grabbling for fish

Zimbabwe UFO Child Contactee Speaks Publicly For The 1st Time

One of the most outstanding UFO experiences involving a group of children took place on September 16, 1994. Approximately 60 children between 5 and 12 years old were playing outside their school on the outskirts of the capital of Zimbabwe when they saw a large spaceship and several smaller craft gliding over the scrubland.

The spacecraft landed beside their playground. The children claim that they were approached by beings from the ships and that the whole encounter lasted about 15 minutes.

Emily Trim was one of those children. As a young student at the Ariel primary school near the town of Ruwa in Zimbabwe, the incident was made famous when it was covered by the BBC, who interviewed the children soon after the incident. Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack traveled to the school to interview the children and recorded their extraordinary accounts.

To this day, she says, the incident still affects her. Standing only a few feet away from the beings she believes that she was given messages.

She has been painting and drawing mysterious and beautiful images she feels are a manifestation of the messages she received. Go to Video & transcript
