Daily 2 Cents: Former NASA Employee Saw Humans on Mars -- 'Vampire' Burials Solved -- Did Wizards Exist?

Woman Claiming To Be Former NASA Employee Says She Saw Humans Walking On Mars In 1979

A woman named "Jackie," who claims to be a former NASA employee, called Coast to Coast AM in the U.S. She claimed she had seen evidence of two human figures walking towards the Viking lander on Mars in 1979.

A color mosaic taken by NASA's Mars Curiosity rover Mast Camera (mastcam) shows strata exposed along the margins of the valleys in the "Pahrump Hills" region on Mars in this undated handout photo courtesy of NASA. After 18 months of driving, scientists on September 11, 2014, announced that Curiosity had arrived at the base of Mount Sharp ahead of schedule, thanks to a somewhat serendipitous decision to take an alternative path that would be gentler on the rover's damaged wheels. Within two weeks, Curiosity will reach an outcrop of rock called Pahrump Hills, where the first drill samples of Mount Sharp real estate will be made

The "former NASA employee" asked the radio show presenter to solve a 27-year-old mystery for her. She claimed she had worked for NASA and that her job was to handle the downlink telemetry from the lander. The Viking lander was the first vehicle to send back pictures of the surface of the Red Planet.

She said that while she was working, she saw two people walking across the Martian surface. She continued that she and six colleagues were watching the footage of the Viking rover moving around on multiple screens when she noticed two men in spacesuits walking to the Viking Explorer from the horizon. She added the men's suits looked protective but unlike what astronauts wore.

The "former NASA employee" said she and her colleagues were maintaining the equipment when suddenly the video feed got cut off. She went on to say that when they ran upstairs, they found the door was locked and paper was taped over the door so nothing could be seen. She posed a question to the radio presenter asking whether or not the two men she saw were guys from NASA. The agency has yet to comment on the claim.

Blogs that report on UFO and conspiracy theories have backed the "former NASA employee." They claimed humans had been on Mars to polish off the lander's solar panels. Metro.co.uk wrote that this seemed off because if the humans were there, they could have filled petrol into the lander or take photos themselves. A few other conspiracy theorists claimed that in the sixties, there were secret landings on Mars. They further claimed that the Apollo landings were a cover-up for wider exploration of the solar system. - IBTimes


Mystery of 'Vampire' Burials in Poland Is Solved

The mystery behind several "vampire" burials in Poland has been solved.

People who were buried with sickles (curved, sharp farming knives) around their necks, or rocks at their jaws, to prevent their corpses from reanimating were natives to the area in which they were buried, according to a new study.

The fact that all the people buried as vampires were local suggests they may have been felled by a cholera epidemic that swept through the region, said study co-author Lesley Gregoricka, a bioarchaeologist at the University of South Alabama.

The skull of the "Vampire of Venice" was found in a mass grave with a brick stuck in its jaw.

Tales of the dead coming back to life have truly ancient roots, going back to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Babylonians and beyond, said study co-author Tracy Betsinger, a bioarchaeologist at the State University of New York at Oneonta.

For all these stories of the dead coming back to life, "the word collectively used is a 'revenance,'" Betsinger told Live Science.

Gregoricka and her colleagues analyzed bone fragments from the Drawsko cemetery, a Polish site where vampire burials were found. The cemetery dates from the 17th to the 18th century, the researchers said. Some people at the site were buried with sickles under their necks or rocks under their jaws, to prevent them from reanimating. (The sickles were intended to decapitate the people if they tried to rise from the grave, while the rocks pinned their jaws shut so they weren't able to feed on the living, Gregoricka said.)

The researchers then took a closer look at 60 of the 333 burials from the site, six of which were "vampire" burials intended to prevent a corpse from reanimating. The team analyzed the ratio of strontium isotopes (versions of the atom with different numbers of neutrons) in the skeletons. Because each location has a unique ratio of these isotopes, and people's bodies naturally take the elements up from the environment, analyzing strontium isotope ratios can reveal where a person is from.

Contrary to the initial hypothesis that the "vampires" were immigrants, the team actually discovered that all of the vampires were locals. - NBCNews


Lisa Rinna says her house is haunted

Referencing a discussion she had about “ghostly nosies” she heard in her Southern California home, the pouty-lipped wife of L.A. Law hunk Harry Hamlin wrote in her latest Bravo blog that she believes her home is inhabited by a friendly spirit who passed away there more than 30 years ago.

“Fact is, I can’t prove it, but I believe there is indeed a female ghost named ‘Karen’ … [who] died in the house back in 1980 … that lives with us,” the former Melrose Place star wrote.

Thankfully for Rinna, she considers the ghost in her home is more like Casper and less like Poltergeist, as she said Karen “absolutely loves” her teen daughters Delilah and Amelia, and “and loves to be around them.”

The newest addition to the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills provided a sad backstory filling the details of why she feels the supernatural presence.

“Karen had a 3-year-old daughter when she passed away, so I feel like she really presented herself to us when the girls were just babies,” Rinna wrote. “She’s a good ghost. A protective spirit that I’m grateful to share my home and family with.”

Rinna, admitting her intuition “sounds crazy,” said “it’s just a feeling” she has.

Elsewhere in the blog, Rinna says that she’s “loving [her] new role as a Housewife,” two weeks into the program’s new broadcasts.

“I have to admit, I am completely humbled and so incredibly grateful for all of the support and all-around amazingness you’ve shown me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and everywhere else,” she wrote. “I love reading everything you send my way and just know that I love each and every one of you right back!” - RadarOnline


Wizards: Did They Exist?

Myths and folklore from all over the world inform us of people with supernatural abilities who walked among us. Whether their abilities are attributed to God, the Devil, nature, or some other source, the ancient world is full of records of people who could reportedly perform magic at will. History has not been kind to the word “wizard”; when we hear it, we are inclined to think of fairy tales and fiction–and yet, when a religion recognizes people with the same powers, many of us are willing to call them saints and prophets of God. We are willing to believe in saints but dismiss wizards out of hand. Why should this be so?

We will explore several historical cases of people who seemed to have had magical powers and are listed in the “wizard” category. This is a brief history as all the facts on any of them could constitute many books. There are many more in history that have also risen to the rank of wizard (or a similar designation), but we have picked out a few examples to raise the question of whether these figures truly existed and if they truly had powers.

'Dreamwork for Visionary Living' by Rosemary Ellen Guiley

During her most recent guest appearance on Arcane Radio, dream expert Rosemary Ellen Guiley detailed how to interpret dreams and some of the criteria in her workshops. She also recounted her early experiences with dreams and what it has meant to her personally and for her career.

She also announced the publication of Dreamwork for Visionary Living, a practical guide to pro-active dreaming....and using your dreams in targeted ways to improve day-to-day living. This guide defines the power to transform your life...emotionally, spiritually, and even physically.

Rosemary has gathered techniques and wisdom from ancient times to the present, giving special emphasis to dreams that transcend ordinary reality and address our biggest spiritual questions: who we are, why we are here, where we are going, and what life’s journey means.

The book features 37 innovative dream labs, easy and practical ways to apply pro-active dreaming to any aspect of daily and spiritual life. I found the concepts very easy to follow and comprehend...and intrigued by the narratives added with the dream labs.

Some of the more fascinating chapters, in my opinion, dealt with healing, psychic dreaming, using dreams in the spiritual realm and out-of-body dreaming. I soon developed a divergent perception of ordinary daily routines. This has improved my focus while conducting research and writing. There are other techniques in this guide that I plan to implement into my life, especially the intriguing use of dreams for healing.

I highly recommend Dreamwork for Visionary Living for those who are interested in developing alternate means of self-help and for understanding how you can expand your sense of reality.

City in the Mountain

According to Emile Frank’s book Mt. Shasta: California's Mystic Mountain JC Brown, a geologist for the Lord Cowdray Mining company of London, was prospecting for precious metals in the Mt. Shasta, California area when he came across an interesting geological feature which, upon further investigation, turned out to be a tunnel. After excavating the opening, Brown entered the tunnel, following it for a couple of miles and eventually finding rooms full of gold and copper plates, as well as ornate statues. He also found a burial chamber that contained 27 skeletons that ranged from 6-foot-6 to 10 feet in length, two of which were shrouded in mysterious robes:

Mt. Shasta is a most majestic mountain and extinct volcano, part of the Cascade Mountain Range, located in Siskiyou County in Northern California about 45 miles from the Oregon border. According to varied legends, Mt. Shasta can be considered as one of the most sacred places on this planet. It is said to be a focus-point for angels, spirit-guides, spaceships, masters from the Light Realm, and the home of the survivors of Ancient Lemuria, which sank under the waves of the Pacific Ocean a little over 12,000 years ago. Legend states that the Lemurians are well and physically alive, living in the subterranean city of 'Telos' underneath the sacred Mt. Shasta.

While exploring the mountain, JC Brown ran onto a section of rock in the face of a cliff which didn’t seem to match the surrounding formation. While examining the curious stone, he noticed it blocked the entrance to what appeared to be a cave. Brown, a geologist, thought the entire scene was unnatural and began to dig out the mouth of the cave, which was full of debris and vegetation. He began to see that it was not a small cave and after much digging found himself in a tunnel which curved downward into the mountain. Equipped with lanterns and miner’s paraphernalia he set out to explore. JC Brown later stated...

Three miles from the mouth of the tunnel I struck a cross-section containing gold-bearing ore and farther on, I struck another cross-section where an ancient race apparently had mined copper...

He believed the other cross-sections outcropped on some other part of the mountain. The decline continued approximately 11 miles inside the mountain to where he found what he called “The Village Blets”, where many rooms and chambers were found.

The rooms were literally full of various plates, all inscribed neatly. The walls were lined with tempered copper and hung with shields and wall-pieces made of gold. Some of the golden plates he found were engraved with certain drawings and hieroglyphics. Rooms opened into other chambers, one of which appeared to have been a place of worship. In addition, there were 13 statues made of copper and gold and a large sun design from which protruded golden streamers. The way the objects were strewn about, he had the feeling the occupants of the underground village had left on the spur of the moment. And then he came upon a macabre scene – in one chamber he counted 27 skeletons, the smallest of which was 6’6″ and the largest stretching out more than 10 feet. Two of the bodies were mummified, each clad in colorful, ornate robes. Brown spent many days exploring, studying the hieroglyphics, and indelibly imprinting them in his mind. He was excited about this great archaeological find and decided to leave the tunnel and its contents exactly as he had found them. He would return, he thought. But first, he cleverly concealed the entrance of the tunnel and marked on his map exactly were it was on the mountain.

For the next three decades, from 1904-1934, Brown’s activities are unknown, only that he studied the literature and philosophy pertaining to the lost Lemurian civilization, among other lore of prehistoric races. Years of study and comparison of the hieroglyphics and pictographs he had found in the tunnel convinced him that they were, indeed, records of the Lemurian race. And so, after 30 long years, Brown surfaced. In 1934, at the age of 79, Brown appeared in Stockton, California. His idea was to organize a group of people interested in accompanying him, at his expense to Mt. Shasta. They would explore further the ancient tunnel he had found in 1904.

Brown was able to gather 80 eager volunteers, including a newspaper editor, a museum curator, several scientists, and other solid citizens from Stockton. The group met nightly for six weeks to plan the expedition, and also to listen to Brown’s fabulous tales of lost continents, hieroglyphics, and the enticing descriptions of the treasure.

The expedition was scheduled to leave on June 19th at 1:00 p.m. The entire group was waiting at the designated time for their leader to appear. They had met the evening before in order to consummate the final details, after which J.C. Brown bid them adieu until the next afternoon. However, Brown was never seen again by any of the group, and what happened to him is anybody’s guess. They contacted in the Stockton police, but no trace of the man was found. He had completely disappeared.

Telos was mentioned in a book written by a UFO contactee named George Hunt Williamson, called Secret Places of the Lion: Alien Influences on Earth's Destiny In this book Williamson refers to 'the ancient land of Telos' and places its location in the Colorado plateau area of the four-corners region of the United States.

Over the years, there are numerous accounts and sightings suggesting that ancient beings reside on Mt. Shasta. Some of the witnesses have described these beings as giants and covered with dark fur. Bigfoot sightings have been constant in the area for over a century.

According to researcher William F. Hamilton, who claims to have met representatives of the subterranean ‘city of Telos’ underneath Mt. Shasta. He stated they are usually tall, blue-eyed blonds who number in excess of over one-and-a-half million in their large 5-leveled, 20-mile long underground city. Mt Shasta has also been a major site for UFO contacts for decades.

Hamilton wrote a series of articles about a young woman named Bonnie Condey, who was working at a Hollywood strip club in the 1970’s, the IVAR theater, under the stage name “Atlantis”.

Bonnie took on the name Sharula Dux, and began giving channeling’s and prophecies and workshops, and spoke in great length and detail about Telos, which she described as a techno-spiritual city that resided beneath Mt. Shasta.

In 2006, William F. Hamilton lamented about bringing Bonnie to the attention of the public. At the club she usually cashiered, but sometimes performed. At first she did not want to be in the public limelight.

Its a long and sordid story as she seemed such a sweet girl. Born in 1953 in Utah, she claimed to me that her father, the high priest of Telos (later found out she lifted the name from one of my books) was over 200 years old and that she herself was really over 50 (really only about 24 at the time).

Later her story changed and has become embellished over the years. Now she makes a living as Princess Sharula. Hamilton states...

She told everyone that California was going to fall into the sea during the planetary alignment, the so-called Jupiter effect of 1982. I guess she wasn’t very good at prophecy. Everytime she promised me proof, it vaporized. She is just another charlatan!

Over the years there have been others claiming to be residents of Telos or 'in tune' with the subterranean city.

Juan Hu Nhu, in his book Mount Shasta Myth’s Exploded, suggests the modern versions and interpretations of Lemuria and Telos probably owe as much a debt of inspiration to popular television shows from the 70’s and 80’s, as they do to the esoteric Theosophical writings of Blavatsky and her contemporaries.

Journalist and influential ufologist John Keel was the one of the first people to talk about a strange phenomenon, he called “ultraterrestrials”, and suggests that they represent some kind of intelligent, extradimensional species closely tied to the human race, who reside in our immediate environment, and are geographically linked to otherworldy 'windows' or 'portals' which may be linked to specific geological areas on our planet which contain negative magnetic anomalies, which are found in places known to be hotbeds of UFO and paranormal activity.

Keel and other researchers believe that these ultraterrestrials are clever mimics and that some human beings are under the control of a strange force that controls and manipulates them in absurd ways, tricking them into playing a role in a bizarre game of deception. It's an interesting concept, that I also believe to a certain degree.

There is little doubt in my mind that we are sharing this planet with unseen entities who have been disguised as deities and supernatural beings for much of man's existence.

Daily 2 Cents: Ouija Boards Popular Holiday Gift Item -- Exorcism Used Against 'Mango Demons' -- The Irby Boggle

Ouija Boards Popular Holiday Gift Item

What better time to talk to dead people for fun than the festival to celebrate the birth of Jesus? Ouija boards are flying themselves off shelves and under trees this Christmas, according to trends data released by Google. The company has recorded a 300 per cent increase in searches for the spirit-bothering devices, fuelled by a terrible movie that was effectively a feature-length ad for a board game, an appearance on The Archers, and the Victorian belief that if the dead could speak, they would use a plank of a wood and the alphabet.

Ouija, released in October in time for Halloween, was, by all accounts, a cliché-ridden turkey about a group of teenage girls who experiment with a board and get scared. It has a disastrous 7 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the review aggregating site, but became an occult hit, to the delight of its backers. Hasbro, the toy company behind Monopoly, pushed for the revival of the film, which had stalled in development, and partnered with Universal to make it happen. Its Ouija Game, including a glow-in-the-dark version, is – sure enough – the biggest seller online.

All of which is appropriate, because the Ouija-board trend, circa 1890, was always about selling games. Spirit writing dates back much further. In 12th-century China, it was believed that spirits had the power to guide a "planchette" to write Chinese characters. In the late 19th century, when doubts about God inspired by Darwin's little birds led to a boom in spiritualism, planchettes became a novelty hit in the west. Elijah Bond, an American lawyer and inventor from Baltimore, devised and patented in 1891 "a toy or game by which two or more persons can amuse themselves by asking questions of any kind and having them answered by the device used and operated by the touch of the hand, so that the answers are designated by letters on a board".

Bond's talking board, with its planchette pointer (a small glass is now a popular alternative), was a minor hit in the séances of the time, but it was William Fuld, who had worked with Bond, who made it big. He marketed the board heavily, crushing competitors and copycats. Ouija was a portmanteau of "yes" in French and German, he said (as well as 26 letters, boards include the words "yes" and "no" so that spirits can answer simple questions more quickly). Fuld eventually passed the company to his children who in 1966 sold it to… Hasbro.

If there were any doubt that dead people don't tend to communicate in this way or at all, scientists have been on the case for decades. In the 1850s, Michael Faraday, the electromagnetism guy, devised an experiment to expose a similar spiritual fad. Table tipping required a group of people to rest their hands on a small table, which would then seem to become possessed and move. He created a system of movable cards that would show whether the motion derived from the table or the participants (it was them, of course).

Faraday and other scientists identified the ideomotor effect, which also explains how Ouija boards work (or don't work). Ray Hyman, an American psychologist and early figure in the modern skeptical movement, neatly described it in 1999: "Honest, intelligent people can unconsciously engage in muscular activity that is consistent with their expectations."

In other words, if the questioner at a Ouija board expects a yes or a no, or a word, their brain guides the hand accordingly without their realising it. Other hands in the group follow. Similar experiments show that looking at an object can further compel the brain to guide a hand in its direction. Sure enough, when the letters on a board are only visible to a "spirit", and not the players, their hands produce nonsensical responses.

Yet the creepiness of the exercise and the imagery of films like Ouija can make them fun, especially during teenage sleepovers. In a Halloween episode of The Archers last month, Kenton hosted a séance a The Bull, with far from spooky results. But those falling for the marketing this Christmas should beware the risks of messing with spirits, or at least one's own mind. Two years ago, a 15-year-old boy from Texas told police he had stabbed his friend in the neck because a Ouija board had told him to.

Reports abound online of players freaking out or even committing suicide after sessions. In 1994, a British judge was forced to order a retrial of a man jailed for life for a double murder after it emerged that jurors had used a Ouija board during a drunken night to guide them towards a verdict. A fresh jury found the accused guilty. That time, board games were banned. - Independent


Exorcism Used Against 'Mango Demons'

Residents of a mountain barangay in Cebu City, in the Philippines, claim that 35 students at their public school were possessed by evil spirits.

According to the report the mother of two of the possessed pupils believes that spirits hit the school after it cut down two mango trees to make way for a two-story building according to local paper Sun Star Cebu.

The 35 students apparently collapsed and started convulsing on Thursday, as around 3 pm.

The school's teachers sought the help of local officials, who called in priests from the Mary Help of Christians Parish in Barangay Buhisan.

Reverend Nicolas Ramos responded by conducting a Catholic rite of exorcism.

Some of the pupils appeared to respond to the priest's prayers, four more started convulsing and screaming just before the school celebrated mass.

While locals believe that this was demonic possession, Cebu's archdiocese cations it may have just been mass hysteria.

Mass hysteria generally occurs in a way that mirrors a given group's concerns. For example a lot of current outbreaks tend to be based around fears of strange smells, food poisoning or allergies.

According to a paper in the British Journal of Psychiatry, religious mass hysteria was quite common during the renaissance, "between the 15th and 19th centuries, exceedingly strict Christian religious orders appeared in some European convents.

"Coupled with a popular belief in witches and demons, this situation triggered dozens of epidemic motor hysteria outbreaks among nuns, who were widely believed to have been demonically possessed."

The Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council has debriefed the teachers, teaching them what to do in case of another mass hysteria outbreak. - Times Live


The Irby Boggle

This story, which was originally printed in the Grimsby Telegraph in 1954, delves into the history of the village of Irby in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

On a clear day they can just see the grey waters of the Humber many miles away for Irby actually stands on the foothills of the Lincolnshire Wolds and they may wonder how it got its name.

There are two villages of that name in the county and to avoid confusion one was called Irby-upon-Humber and the other one, some five miles from Spilsby, was called Irby-on-the-Marsh.

In the distant past before the Humber marsh was drained, Irby was the last settlement between the high ground and the coast.

Within one mile the neighbouring village of Laceby is really a part of Grimsby's suburbia, but Irby is truly rural and is entirely devoted to farming.

The history of Irby goes back to the Normans and earlier to the invasions up the Humber of the Danes, Jutes and Saxons, to Roman Britain and before that to the settlement of Neolithic man living in stone caves on the hills.

There was once a colourful character as Lord of the Manor in those days – one Sir William Holles, who was described by his grandson Gervase as "happy in his bed, happy in his children and happy in his neighbours".

Relatives were worried that he might dissipate his fortune in riotous living.

He took a retinue of 50 stalwarts in "blue coats and badges" to the Coronation of Edward VI and made a habit of taking an escort of 30 to the assizes at Retford.

Sir William, who died in 1590 at the ripe old age of 83 despite his dissipation, also kept a jester for his amusement who frequently got into very hot water indeed.

One day the fool – John Oatesborne of Riby – overheard a man trying to sell his master a falcon for hunting.

It was described as "the sweetest, delicatest and best-conditioned bird" but the jester was next seen bursting into the dining room at lunchtime covered in blood and feathers and shouting that the hawk was "cursed for the worst meat he ever did eat in his life."

Another time the fool was bade by his master who was leaving for a visit to "have a care no one kissed his lady till he returned".

The first man of note to arrive was one George, Earl of Shrewsbury, who got hit on the head with a stave by the jester before he had time to enter the house.

Sir William planned to build a splendid manor house and divert the water from the Welbeck springs near Barton Street at Irby.

He had the foundations dug and intended using stone from the church of St Mary's in Grimsby, which was demolished during the Reformation.

He did not get much further before he died, and his family were pleased because the stones from the same church had been used at Healing and Hatcliffe and "had brought a curse on the owners".

Away from the moat up the winding farm lane past scattered farms is the village pump, the centre of life and gossip in the old days.

Its 108-ft deep well provided water for inhabitants and livestock. The oldest resident in Irby, Mr Herbert Taylor, who can still do a day's farm work at the age of 79, recalls a young girl who set up in business delivering buckets of water to the outskirts of the village at one penny a time.

From the pump and across the busy main road is a muddy lane through the fields which continues, so local legend has it, into haunted country.

Suddenly, the flat fields give way to a hidden valley of woods and stream called Irby Dale.

It is a delightful retreat in the daytime with its glades and its trees.

At night it is the haunt of the Irby Boggle, the ghost of a lovely young damsel who strolls through the glade by moonlight.

It is difficult to trace the story, but apparently she was murdered by her plough-boy sweetheart.

There is an old tree in the wood which is covered with initials carved into the bark and residents say that the swain and his lover put their initials there entwined in the time-honoured way.

Mention the "Boggle" to local people and the younger generation howls with laughter but the older ones say nothing. - Grimsby Telegraph


Malevolent 'captain' said to haunt NC house

MAYSVILLE | The deteriorating house in the 100 block of Belgrade Extension Road is occupied, according to medium Natalie Kauftheil.

It's just not occupied by the living.

And the spirit of a malevolent, mean drunk will let you know it.

“Animals don't even like this place,” Kauftheil said, noticing the lack of birds or woodland creatures on the property, roughly a third of an acre.

Purported to be haunted, some former residents of the house admit to witnessing paranormal activity, a finding corroborated by a Jacksonville Daily News investigation in 2005.

Kauftheil, who accompanied The Free Press on a return to the property Thursday, said she sensed a Native American chief from a village that once was nearby, two children from the 1800s who played outside and six spirits inside the house.

The most active of these, and negative, is that of a man thought to have earned his living on the river sometime before World War I.

The house dates from 1901.

He was married with a daughter and two sons. Standing behind the residence, Kauftheil picked up first on his wife.

“There's a female, but she's got the longer dresses, like early 19(00s),” Kauftheil said. “She's real quiet. Husband is abusive, loud, drunk. Three kids. … None of them really grew up, because, the little girl looks like 8 (years old). To me, they had to have had some money because she's dressed really nice. Pretty shoes.

Alien Abductions: Why?

Why do aliens see the need to abduct earthlings?

Professor David M. Jacobs is an historian and retired Associate Professor of History at Temple University specializing in 20th century American history and culture. Jacobs is also well known in the field of ufology for his research and authoring of books on the subject of alleged alien abductions. He has lectured widely, been interviewed, and participated in numerous television and radio shows on the subject of alien abductions.

Jacobs believes alien abduction on humans have been happening to create alien-human hybrids who are walking all over Earth today and will take over Earth soon. At age 71, Jacobs has made investigations on extraterrestrial abductions as his mission.

Jacobs, who currently working on his 5th book, was a professor for 36 years, teaching American history at Temple University before retiring in 2011. His first 4 books were printed by leading and academic publishers as he ensures to apply a scholarly approach to his research.

According to Jacobs, he has talked with around 150 people who claim they were victims of alien abductions. In his own estimates, based on public polls, space aliens kidnapped over a million Americans.

While he admits that the evidence on extraterrestrial body-snatching and extraterrestrial life itself is weak, he insists evidence exists. He cites the following evidence:

- Abductees have been reporting similar experiences and recalling common details, such as the mission to breed of human-like or insect-like appearance extraterrestrials.

- People were absent physically during the time they were abducted and some loved ones or families claimed they saw them disappeared.

- Sometimes abductees were taken in groups composed of people who never met before on Earth and shared their abduction experiences together when they met on Earth after the abduction.

- People return with strange marks, scars or injuries in which Jacobs claimed he had seen himself.

Contrary to David Jacobs' assertions, I have an opposing opinion in reference to alien abductions based on testimony and research I have conducted over the years.

As many of you know, I have been involved with documenting the David Eckhart family encounters and abductions since 2008. Over that period of time, David has described many of the scenarios he witnessed while under the control of his captors...including human experimentation and disposal.

The Eckharts are not the only alien experiencers I have interviewed and researched. One other multiple abductee described similar events they witnessed while in the company of these alien beings.

The one claim, that I'm sure will be controversial and ridiculed, is that many of the abductees are related to an ancient line of hybrids. For thousands of years, I believe that these hybrids have been identified, hunted down and disposed of by various alien races. I also believe that world governments have been cooperating with this systematic genocide since the 1950's. The descriptions of abductees enduring heavily invasive experimentation (recounted as long deep incisions made in the back) and the ultimate disposal in huge, cylindrical-shaped incinerators bolsters my theory.

The reason why these exterminations are taking place is not an easy one to pin down...but much of what is metaphorically described in the Book of Enoch may offer some clues as to why this is occurring. The term Nephilim, the offspring of the 'sons of God' and the 'daughters of men,' may be a broader representation of extraterrestrials combining the DNA of different species. The Bible states that the Deluge was the means of destroying the Nephilim. Who is to argue that some of these Nephilim survived and continue to mix among the modern human population?

I may go into a deeper explanation at a later date, but I wanted to 'put it out there' for a reaction. I'd be interested in your thoughts?
