Daily 2 Cents: Dragon Flying Over Ontario -- The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus’s Wife -- 'Small Black Flying Things'

Dragon Flying Over Ontario

Ryan in Canada called in to tell of his flying serpent sighting. The caller doesn't give a specific location in Canada but it's interesting that another flying serpent was reported by a man camping in the Sand Banks Park in Ontario, Canada. The UFO Report also has a 1976 case from Prince George, British Columbia in which witnesses observed a flying serpent over a highway:

“Last year I actually saw something. It was some time in the evening and it was actually moving like a serpent and I actually did take a few pictures of it. I looked at it pretty closely and it turned out it was actually a dragon and I don't know. Quite honestly, I think it might have been a dragon or not but it was moving like a serpent. It looked like a giant serpent, like one of those Japanese / Chinese dragons. It's really long and one part looked like horns. It was kind of blurry because it was moving pretty fast. Like when I first noticed it, I saw something shiny like moving like a serpent so I went to get my camera and I took a picture of it.”

I'm unsure whether or not the picture of the creature was ever sent to George Knapp, who was hosting that night.

The Government Of Mars Is Already Being Planned: A Glimpse At Martian Law

As NASA, tech billionaires, and other nonprofit organizations all vie to colonize the stars — with a particular eye on Mars as humanity’s next home — researchers in Seattle have recently offered a glimpse of what government on the Red Planet could look like.

As far back as 2010 — outlined in the U.S. National Space Policy and then given the budgetary green light by the NASA Authorization Act — the United States has advanced the idea that Americans could be living on Mars by the 2030s. A major milestone toward this end would be streamlining the ability to land human beings on an asteroid, which the space agency hopes to accomplish by 2025.

This is around the same time that Mars One, the Netherlands-based nonprofit research group whose stated goal is to establish a human colony on Mars by 2027, is slated to start rocketing the hardware needed to construct and maintain said colony in the Red Planet’s direction.

The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus’s Wife

On a humid afternoon this past November, I pulled off Interstate 75 into a stretch of Florida pine forest tangled with runaway vines. My GPS was homing in on the house of a man I thought might hold the master key to one of the strangest scholarly mysteries in recent decades: a 1,300-year-old scrap of papyrus that bore the phrase “Jesus said to them, My wife.” The fragment, written in the ancient language of Coptic, had set off shock waves when an eminent Harvard historian of early Christianity, Karen L. King, presented it in September 2012 at a conference in Rome.

Never before had an ancient manuscript alluded to Jesus’s being married. The papyrus’s lines were incomplete, but they seemed to describe a dialogue between Jesus and the apostles over whether his “wife”—possibly Mary Magdalene—was “worthy” of discipleship. Its main point, King argued, was that “women who are wives and mothers can be Jesus’s disciples.” She thought the passage likely figured into ancient debates over whether “marriage or celibacy [was] the ideal mode of Christian life” and, ultimately, whether a person could be both sexual and holy.

'Small Black Flying Things'

Oklahoma City / Tulsa, OK - 2001-01-06 - 9:00PM: I first encountered these entities in 1995 briefly in the early summer in OKC, (they are small black flying things unlike any "creature" or "animal" or typical walking alien you stereo typically see depicted on tv. They don't look so concrete, almost as if they have some sort of black holographic cloak surrounding them. When you look at them, it is like looking into a black void, you can't make it out and it doesn't make sense. I doubt they have wings, as their flight pattern doesn't suggest a wing flap type acceleration, because they are 50 times faster than any bird or land animal on earth. I noticed it first in a hotel bathroom, right before going on my first overseas trip to Great Britain at the age of 16. They are much smaller than humans, and Pinpointing it in the bathroom was very difficult, but I could feel it brush by my shoulders and head. I became violently ill, not sure why. I managed to make it to GB, a three week long trip away from my mom, and at that point she hadn't seen it and I NEVER spoke of it, but unusual things occurred in GB. Time went by, and I blocked it out of my memory, dismissing as some sort of demon because of religious brainwashing I endured growing up. In 2001, I had some mental instability and ended up in a psych unit, where I met a man claiming to be the entity. (20 page chapter in my book, but yes they can inhabit humans 😔) After a BIG ordeal, the man was released first, and then I was finally released as stable, and Mom was there to pick me up. At night, she took me to a hotel, where there was an indoor pool and sauna. I was the only person at the pool, the hotel itself was practically vacant. The black swarms began again, It would fly close to my head, disappear, reappear, and taunt me to the point where I told my mom I wasn't comfortable staying there. "Your professor said you could sleep on his pull out couch, do you want me to call him?" "Yes, PLEASE!" She got on the interstate and I could see it flying around the car. "Drive faster, Mom, there is something chasing us!!!" "I see it!" "Faster, go 85." She dropped me of at professor's, I took my knock out meds and got in bed. I left a small light on the kitchen. Prof's fam was asleep, I got under covers, closed my eyes, and felt something on legs. I opened eyes, and there he was, just sitting on my legs. I yelled screamed, professor came in turned on lights and saw it. I looked at prof and yelled go away. The entity sat on my legs all night, if I yelled it clamped down on my legs, so I stopped yelling. I passed out, woke up at 4 am and it was STILL there. By daylight it was gone. Prof was never well after that. He lost his job and mind and moved into a nursing home at age 53. - MUFON CMS
