It used to be common for western churches to hold onto human remains: bits of teeth and bone and hair and skin purported to be saintly relics, sometimes holy treasures kept and revered -- and sometimes the objects of the fraudulent relic trade.
A new discovery in Mexico, however, is a first for human remains in a church: a statue of Christ has been discovered to have teeth -- not teeth carved from animal bone or horn -- but actual human teeth.
The 18th century Lord of Patience statue in the parish of San Bartolo Cuautlalpan -- known for its gruesome blood and open wounds -- was about to undergo restoration at the National School of Restoration, Conservation and Museology. In preparation for the restoration, the team X-rayed the statue, to find eight adult human teeth adorning its mouth.
"It is common that the sculptures have teeth, but they are usually made of wood or bone carved individually or as a plate, but in this case has eight teeth of an adult," said team leader and school director Fanny Unikel in a museum video. "The teeth were probably donated as a token of gratitude. It's the first time human teeth have been found in a sculpture."
It is unlikely, she added, that the teeth were a holy relic, which are usually treated quite differently: placed on display inside a reliquary so that all might know their significance. It's much more likely that they were a gift -- much like parishioners would donate hair to make wigs for statues, clothing or money to their church.
Unikel also noted that the teeth themselves were in perfect condition in spite of their age.
35-year-old Mmatalamo Thobakgale from Southern Gateway in Limpopo, SA, says her breast was stolen while she was asleep.
She says she dreamt that she was having an operation to have cancer removed from her breast.
And when she woke up, her left breast had been mutilated.
The mother of two said she woke up in the early hours of last Monday with somebody on top of her.
"I managed to push this person off me and then I heard the door banging," she said.
Her husband and kids were gone and there were four knives lying on her bed.
She collapsed and when she woke up she saw her husband and paramedics around her.
"I was hysterical. I didn't even want to go to any local hospital because I believed my attacker would find me," she said.
Mmatalamo said the doctor's letter said she cut herself. "Why would I cut myself?"
After surgery at Pietersburg Hospital, Mmatalamo's older sister Maphuti Legodi took her to her house in Spruitview, east of Johannesburg.
Maphuti's husband Abel Legodi said Mmatalamo's husband called him.
"He said if Mmatalamo didn't come home he would divorce her," said Abel.
Mmatalamo's husband, Moswatsi Tobakgale said he was out with his kids when the incident happened.
"I am waiting to get an appointment with a psychologist for my wife," he said.
CONOP 8888, otherwise known as “Counter-Zombie Dominance” is no laughing matter. The U.S. military has always been the one place in government with a plan, forever in preparation mode and ready to yank a blueprint off the shelf for almost any contingency. Need a response for a Russian nuclear missile launch? Check. Have to rescue a U.S. ambassador kidnapped by drug lords? Yup, check, got that covered. How about a detailed strategy for surviving azombie apocalypse? As it turns out, check.
This is not BS. The United States Defense Department actually has a plan in place in case zombies invade the earth and the military has to destroy them to “preserve the sanctity of human life.” In a secret military computer network, a documentcalled CONOP 8888 provides a how-to defence against the undead. “This plan fulfils fictional contingency-planning guidance tasking for U.S. conduct operations that will, if directed, eradicate zombie threats to human safety.” Finally, the plan provides guidance to “aid civil authorities in maintaining law and order and restoring basic services during and after a zombie attack.”
The “worst case threat scenario,” according to the plan, suggests a rather dark situation: a zombie attack in which there would be high “transmissibility,” lots of zombies eating lots of people, zombies infecting humans at a rapid rate, and little or no immunity and few effective countermeasures.
Sound familiar? Did the US Government have a Ebola zombie plan in effect already?
The Government has always conducted inhuman experiments on it’s own people – here is the proof:
iPhone 6 Causing Chunks Of Users Hair To Fall Out.
With all of the problems that Apple is having with their new iPhone 6, they definitely don’t need this one!
First customers were claiming their phones were contaminated, then they claimed their phones were bending. Now users are claiming that they are losing chunks of hair when using their iPhone 6.
Users say that hair is getting stuck between the ‘flimsy’ aluminum and the glass.
Online forms have been filled with comments about how the new phones are ripping their hair off not only above the ear, but causing bald spots on the beards of men.
The new allegations have also prompted a number of funny adverts, suggesting the iPhone is good for shaving a woman’s legs and trimming a man’s facial hair.
Others have said the phone “has it all” and can save you money on going to the hairdresser.
But in reality, it is not funny at all. Chunks of hair are being ripped out and causing, mostly females, emotional distress.
What will Apple do now?
imam Rapes 5 Year Old After He Doubted Her Virginity. *This story is Very Disturbing. Proceed with Caution.
A Saudi Arabian TV preacher, Sheikh Fayhan al-Ghamdi, violated, t0rtured and killed his 5 year old daughter. His punishment? 13 months in prison and a small fine.
And why would a father ever do this to child?
Al-Ghamdi suspected his five-year-old daughter had brought shame upon the family by somehow losing her virginity. And in a horribly twisted interpretation of Sharia Law, al-Ghamdi used a cane and electric cables to do unspeakable things to his own child. A hospital social worker said the child had been violated “everywhere.”
The tiny girl suffered a broken back, crushed skull, numerous burns throughout the body, a broken left arm and multiple broken ribs. Even one of her fingernails had been torn off.
It’s heartbreaking to think that the little girl actually held on for 10 days before finally passing away. I can’t imagine the pain she felt during that time.
Saudi Arabia, which is under Sharia Law, allows thieves to have their hands severed and adulterers to be executed. In this case, they only sentenced al-Ghamdi to 13 months in jail.
Apparently to them, it was somewhat justified if it was true she had lost her virginity.
This murderer was not only released from prison, but he was officially cleared of the rape and murder convictions against his daughter. He currently walks as a free man.
Ebola, Marburg, Enterovirus and Chikungunya these diseases were not even on the radar of most people coming into 2014, but now each one of them is making headline news. So why is this happening? Why are so many deadly diseases breaking out all over the world right now? Is there some kind of a connection, or is the fact that so many horrible diseases are arising all at once just a giant coincidence? And this could be just the beginning. For example, there are now more than a million cases of Chikungunya in Central and South America, and authorities are projecting that there will be millions more in 2015. The number of Ebola cases continues to grow at an exponential rate, and now an even deadlier virus (Marburg) has broken out in Uganda. We have gone decades without experiencing a major worldwide pandemic, and many people believed that it could never happen in our day and time. But now we could potentially see several absolutely devastating diseases all racing across the planet at the same time.
On Monday, we got news that the first confirmed case of Ebola transmission in Europe has happened. A nurse in Spain that had treated a couple of returning Ebola patients has contracted the disease herself…
A nurse’s assistant in Spain is the first person known to have contracted Ebola outside of Africa in the current outbreak.
Spanish Health Minister Ana Mato announced Monday that a test confirmed the assistant has the virus.
The woman helped treat a Spanish missionary and a Spanish priest, both of whom had contracted Ebola in West Africa. Both died after returning to Spain.
Health officials said she developed symptoms on September 30. She was not hospitalized until this week. Her only symptom was a fever.
How many people did she spread the virus to before it was correctly diagnosed?
Meanwhile, Ebola continues to rage out of control in West Africa. It is being reported that Sierra Leone just added 121 new Ebola deaths to the overall death toll in a single day. If Ebola continues to spread at an exponential rate, it is inevitable that more people will leave West Africa with the virus and take it to other parts of the globe.
In fact, it was being reported on Monday that researchers have concluded that there is “a 50 percent chance” that Ebola could reach the UK by October 24th…
Experts have analysed the pattern of the spread of the disease, along with airline traffic data, to make the startling prediction Ebola could reach Britain by October 24.
They claim there is a 50 percent chance the virus could hit Britain by that date and a 75 percent chance the it could be imported to France, as the deadliest outbreak in history spreads across the world.
Currently, there is no cure for the disease, which has claimed more than 3,400 lives since March and has a 90 percent fatality rate.
I have written extensively about Ebola, but it is certainly not the only virus making headlines right now.
Down in Uganda, a man has just died from a confirmed case of the Marburg Virus…
A man has died in Uganda’s capital after an outbreak of Marburg, a highly infectious haemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola, authorities said on Sunday, adding that a total of 80 people who came into contact with him had been put under quarantine.
Marburg starts with a severe headache followed by haemorrhaging and leads to death in 80% or more of cases in about nine days. It is from the same family of viruses as Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa in recent months.
There is no vaccine or specific treatment for the Marburg virus, which is transmitted through bodily fluids such as saliva and blood or by handling infected wild animals such as monkeys.
The Marburg Virus is an absolutely horrible disease, and many consider it to be even more deadly than Ebola. But the fact that it kills victims so quickly may keep it from spreading as widely as Ebola.
We shall see.
Meanwhile, a disease that sounds very similar to Ebola and Marburg has popped up in Venezuela and doctors down there do not know what it is…
“We do not know what it is,” admitted Duglas León Natera, president of the Venezuelan Medical Federation.
In its initial stages, the disease presents symptoms of fever and spots on the skin, and then produces large blisters and internal and external bleeding, according to data provided week stop by the College of Physicians of the state of Aragua, where the first cases were reported.
Then, very quickly, patients suffer from respiratory failure, liver failure and kidney failure. Venezuelan doctors have not been able to determine what the disease is, much less how to fight it.
Why aren’t we hearing more about this in the mainstream news?
Here in the United States, enterovirus D-68 has sickened hundreds of children all over the country. So far cases have been confirmed in 43 different states, several children have been paralyzed by it, and one New Jersey boy has died…
Parents in New Jersey are concerned after a state medical examiner determined a virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country is responsible for the death of a 4-year-old boy.
Hamilton Township health officer Jeff Plunkett said the Mercer County medical examiner’s office found the death of Eli Waller was the result of enterovirus D-68. Waller, the youngest of a set of triplets, died in his sleep at home on Sept. 25.
The virus has sickened more than 500 people in 43 states and Washington, D.C.— almost all of them children. Waller is the first death in New Jersey directly linked to the virus.
The CDC seems to have no idea how to contain the spread of enterovirus D-68.
So why should we be confident that they will be able to contain the spread of Ebola?
Last but not least, the Chikungunya virus is at pandemic levels all over Central and South America.
We aren’t hearing that much about this disease in the U.S., but at this point more than a million people have already been infected…
An excruciating mosquito-borne illness that arrived less than a year ago in the Americas is raging across the region, leaping from the Caribbean to the Central and South American mainland, and infecting more than 1 million people. Some cases already have emerged in the United States.
The good news is that very few people actually die from this disease.
The bad news is that almost everyone that gets it feels like they are dying.
In a previous article, I wrote about the intense suffering that victims go through. According to Slate, the name of this virus originally “comes from a Makonde word meaning ‘that which bends up,’ referring to the contortions sufferers put themselves through due to intense joint pain.”
Right now, the number of cases of Chikungunya is absolutely exploding. Just check out the following excerpt from a recent Fox News report…
In El Salvador, health officials report nearly 30,000 suspected cases, up from 2,300 at the beginning of August, and hospitals are filled with people with the telltale signs of the illness, including joint pain so severe it can be hard to walk.
“The pain is unbelievable,” said Catalino Castillo, a 39-year-old seeking treatment at a San Salvador hospital. “It’s been 10 days and it won’t let up.”
Venezuelan officials reported at least 1,700 cases as of Friday, and the number is expected to rise. Neighboring Colombia has around 4,800 cases but the health ministry projects there will be nearly 700,000 by early 2015.
So why is this happening?
Why are so many absolutely horrible diseases emerging all at once?

A falling baby, saved two times by the same man. Twin brothers, killed in along the same road, two hours apart. The world is filled with astonishing occurrences of coincidence and synchronicity that defy explanation. Are these incredible true stories of mere coincidence… or the hand of fate?
James Dean’s car curse
In September 1955, James Dean was killed in a horrific car accident whilst he was driving his Porsche sports car. After the crash the car was seen as very unlucky.
a) When the car was towed away from accident scene and taken to a garage, the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.
b) Eventually the engine was bought by a doctor, who put it into his racing car and was killed shortly afterwards, during a race. Another racing driver, in the same race, was killed in his car, which had James Dean’s driveshaft fitted to it.
c) When James Dean’s Porsche was later repaired, the garage it was in was destroyed by fire.
d) Later the car was displayed in Sacramento, but it fell off it’s mount and broke a teenager’s hip.
e) In Oregon, the trailer that the car was mounted on slipped from it’s towbar and smashed through the front of a shop.
f) Finally, in 1959, the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces while it was sitting on steel supports.
A falling baby, saved twice by the same man
In Detroit sometime in the 1930s, a young (if incredibly careless) mother must have been eternally grateful to a man named Joseph Figlock. As Figlock was walking down the street, the mother’s baby fell from a high window onto Figlock. The baby’s fall was broken and both man and baby were unharmed. A stroke of luck on its own, but a year later, the very same baby fell from the very same window onto poor, unsuspecting Joseph Figlock as he was again passing beneath. And again, they both survived the event.
A bullet that reached its destiny years later
Henry Ziegland thought he had dodged fate. In 1883, he broke off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, committed suicide. The girl’s brother was so enraged that he hunted down Ziegland and shot him. The brother, believing he had killed Ziegland, then turned his gun on himself and took his own life. But Ziegland had not been killed. The bullet, in fact, had only grazed his face and then lodged in a tree. Ziegland surely thought himself a lucky man. Some years later, however, Ziegland decided to cut down the large tree, which still had the bullet in it. The task seemed so formidable that he decided to blow it up with a few sticks of dynamite. The explosion propelled the bullet into Ziegland’s head, killing him.
Twin Boys, twin lives
The stories of identical twins’ nearly identical lives are often astonishing, but perhaps none more so than those of identical twins born in Ohio. The twin boys were separated at birth, being adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both families named the boys James. And here the coincidences just begin. Both James grew up not even knowing of the other, yet both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married women named Linda. They both had sons whom one named James Alan and the other named James Allan. The twin brothers also divorced their wives and married other women – both named Betty. And they both owned dogs which they named Toy. Forty years after their childhood separation, the two men were reunited to share their amazingly similar lives.
Just like Edgar Allan Poe’s book
In the 19th century, the famous horror writer, Egdar Allan Poe, wrote a book called ‘The narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym’. It was about four survivors of a shipwreck who were in an open boat for many days before they decided to kill and eat the cabin boy whose name was Richard Parker. Some years later, in 1884, the yawl, Mignonette, foundered, with only four survivors, who were in an open boat for many days. Eventully the three senior members of the crew, killed and ate the cabin boy. The name of the cabin boy was Richard Parker.
Twin brothers, killed on the same road, two hours apart
On 2002, Seventy-year-old twin brothers have died within hours of one another after separate accidents on the same road in northern Finland. The first of the twins died when he was hit by a lorry while riding his bike in Raahe, 600 kilometres north of the capital, Helsinki. He died just 1.5km from the spot where his brother was killed. “This is simply a historic coincidence. Although the road is a busy one, accidents don’t occurevery day,” police officer Marja-Leena Huhtala told Reuters. “It made my hair stand on end when I heard the two were brothers, and identical twins at that. It came to mind that perhaps someone from upstairs had a say in this,” she said. (Source: BBC News)
NOTE: our reader Linus wrote us after reading local newspaper Helsingin Sanomat: “Your story about the Finnish twins is missing some details: The first brother was killed by a lorry while riding his bike and crossing highway 8. He apparently didn’t notice the lorry in the snow blizzard. The second brother was killed by a lorry only two hours later while riding his bike and crossing highway 8. The second brother couldn’t have been aware of the first brother’s death, as the police was still trying to identify the victim.”
Three suicide attempts, all stopped by the same Monk
Joseph Aigner was a fairlly well-known portrait painter in 19th century Austria who, apparently, was quite an unhappy fellow: he several times attempted suicide. His first attempt was at the young age of 18 when he tried to hang himself, but was interrupted by the mysterious appearance of a Capuchin monk. At age 22 he again tried to hang himself, but was again saved from the act by the very same monk. Eight years later, his death was ordained by others whosentenced him to the gallows for his political activities. Once again, his life was saved by the intervention of the same monk. At age 68, Aiger finally succeeded in suicide, a pistol doing the trick. His funeral ceremony was conducted by the same Capuchin monk – a man whose name Aiger never even knew.
Poker winnings, to the unsuspected son
In 1858, Robert Fallon was shot dead, an act of vengeance by those with whom he was playing poker. Fallon, they claimed, had won the $600 pot through cheating. With Fallon’s seat empty and none of the other players willing to take the now-unlucky $600, they found a new player to take Fallon’s place and staked him with the dead man’s $600. By the time the police had arrived to investigate the killing, the new player had turned the $600 into $2,200 in winnings. The police demanded the original $600 to pass on to Fallon’s next of kin – only to discover that the new player turned out to be Fallon’s son, who had not seen his father in seven years!
A novel that unsuspectedly described the spy next door
When Norman Mailer began his novel Barbary Shore, there was no plan to have a Russian spy as a character. As he worked on it, he introduced a Russian spy in the U.S. as a minor character. As the work progressed, the spy became the dominant character in the novel. After the novel was completed, the U.S. Immigration Service arrested a man who lived just one floor above Mailer in the same apartment building. He was Colonel Rudolf Abel, alleged to be the top Russian spy working in the U.S. at that time.
Mark Twain and Halley’s Comet
Mark Twain was born on the day of the appearance of Halley’s Comet in 1835, and died on the day of its next appearance in 1910. He himself predicted this in 1909, when he said: “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it.
Three strangers on a Train, with complementary last names
In the 1920s, three Englishman were traveling separately by train through Peru. At the time of their introduction, they were the only three men in the railroad car. Their introductions were more surprising than they could have imagined. One man’s last name was Bingham, and the second man’s last name was Powell. The third man announced that his last name was Bingham-Powell. None were related in any way.
Two brothers killed by the same taxi driver, one year apart
In 1975, while riding a moped in Bermuda, a man was accidentally struck and killed by a taxi. One year later, this man’s bother was killed in the very same way. In fact, he was riding the very same moped. And to stretch the odds even further, he was struck by the very same taxi driven by the same driver – and even carrying the very same passenger!
Swapped Hotel Findings
In 1953, television reporter Irv Kupcinet was in London to cover the coronation of Ellizabeth II. In one of the drawers in his room at the Savoy he found found some items that, by their identification, belonged to a man named Harry Hannin. Coincidentally, Harry Hannin – a basketball star with the famed Harlem Globetrotters – was a good friend of Kupcinet’s. But the story has yet another twist. Just two days later, and before he could tell Hannin of his lucky discovery, Kupcinet received a letter from Hannin. In the letter, Hannin told Kucinet that while staying at the Hotel Meurice in Paris, he found in a drawer a tie – with Kupcinet’s name on it!
Two Mr. Brysons, same hotel room
While on a business trip sometime in the late 1950s, Mr. George D. Bryson stopped and registered at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. After signing the register and being given his key to room 307, he stopped by the mail desk to see if any letters had arrived for him. Indeed there was a letter, the mail girl told him, and handed him an envelope addressed to Mr. George D. Bryson, room 307. This wouldn’t be so odd, except the letter was not for him, but for room 307′s just-previous occupant – another man named George D. Bryson.
Twins brothers, same heart attack
John and Arthur Mowforth were twins who lived about 80 miles apart in Great Britain. On the evening of May 22, 1975, both fell severely ill from chest pains. The families of both men were completely unaware of the other’s illness. Both men were rushed to separate hospitals at approximately the same time. And both died of heart attacks shortly after arrival.
A novel that predicted the Titanic’s destiny, and another ship that almost followed
Morgan Robertson, in 1898, wrote “Futility”. It described the maiden voyage of a transatlantic luxury liner named the Titan. Although it was touted as being unsinkable, it strikes an iceberg and sinks with much loss of life. In 1912 the Titanic, a transatlantic luxury liner widely touted as unsinkable strikes an iceberg and sinks with great loss of life on her maiden voyage. In the Book, the Month of the Wreck was April, same as in the real event. There were 3,000 passengers on the book; in reality, 2,207. In the Book, there were 24 Lifeboats; in reality, 20.
Months after the Titanic sank, a tramp steamer was traveling through the foggy Atlantic with only a young boy on watch. It came into his head that it had been thereabouts that the Titanic had sunk, and he was suddenly terrified by the thought of the name of his ship – the Titanian. Panic-stricken, he sounded the warning. The ship stopped, just in time: a huge iceberg loomed out of the fog directly in their path. The Titanian was saved.
A writer, found the book of her childhood
While American novelist Anne Parrish was browsing bookstores in Paris in the 1920s, she came upon a book that was one of her childhood favorites – Jack Frost and Other Stories. She picked up the old book and showed it to her husband, telling him of the book she fondly remembered as a child. Her husband took the book, opened it, and on the flyleaf found the inscription: “Anne Parrish, 209 N. Weber Street, Colorado Springs.” It was Anne’s very own book.
A writer’s plum pudding
In 1805, French writer Émile Deschamps was treated to some plum pudding by the stranger Monsieur de Fortgibu. Ten years later, he encountered plum pudding on the menu of a Paris restaurant, and wanted to order some, but the waiter told him the last dish had already been served to another customer, who turned out to be de Fortgibu. Many years later in 1832 Émile Deschamps was at a diner, and was once again offered plum pudding. He recalled the earlier incident and told his friends that only de Fortgibu was missing to make the setting complete — and in the same instant the now senile de Fortgibu entered the room.
ARIZONA GAZETTE, MONDAY, APRIL 5, 1909
The latest news of the progress of the explorations of what is now regarded by scientists as not only the oldest archaeological discovery in the United States, but one of the most valuable in the world, which was mentioned some time ago in the Gazette, was brought to the city yesterday by G.E. Kinkaid, the explorer who found the great underground citadel of the Grand Canyon during a trip from Green River, Wyoming, down the Colorado in a wooden boat, to Yuma, several months ago.
According to the story in the Gazette by Mr. Kinkaid, the archaeologist of the Smithsonian Institute, which is financing the explorations, have made discoveries which almost conclusively prove that the race which inhabited this mysterious cavern, hewn in solid rock by human hands, was of Oriental origin or possibly from Egypt tracing back to Ramses. If their theories are borne out of the translation of the tablets engraved with hieroglyphics, the mystery of the prehistoric peoples of North America, their ancient arts, who they were and whence they came, will be solved. Egypt and the Nile and Arizona and the Colorado will be linked by a historical chain running back to ages which staggers the wildest fancy of the fictionist.
A Thorough Investigation
Under the direction of professor S.A. Jordan, the Smithsonian Institute is now prosecuting the most thorough explorations, which will be continued until the last link in the chain has been forged. Nearly a mile underground, about 1480 feet below the surface, the long main passage has been delved into, to find another mammoth chamber from which radiates scores of passageways, like the spokes of a wheel. Several hundred rooms have been discovered, reached by passageways running from the main passage, one of them having been explored for 854 feet and another 634 feet.
Before going further into the cavern, better facilities for lighting have to be installed, for the darkness is dense and impenetrable for the average flash light. In order to avoid being lost, wires are being strung from the entrance to all passageways leading directly to large chambers.
How far this cavern extends no one can guess, but it is now the belief of many that what has already been explored is merely the “Barracks”, to use an American term, for the soldiers, and that far into the underworld will be found the main communal dwellings of the families and possibly other shrines. The ventilation that blows through indicates another outlet to the surface.
Mr. Kinkaids Report
Mr. Kinkaid was the first white child born in Idaho and has been an explorer and hunter all his life. Thirty years having been in the service of the Smithsonian Institute. Even briefly recounted, his history sounds fabulous, almost grotesque.
“First, I would impress that the cavern is almost inaccessible. The entrance is almost 1486 feet down a shear canyon wall. It is located on government land and no visitor will be allowed there under penalty of trespass. The scientists wish to work unmolested, without fear of the archaeological discoveries being disturbed by curio or relic hunters. A trip there would be fruitless and the visitor would be sent on his way.
The story of how I found the cavern: I was journeying down the Colorado river in a boat, alone, looking for mineral. Some forty two miles up the river from El Tovar Crystal canyon, I saw on the east wall, stains in the sedimentary formation about 2000 feet above the river bed. There was no trail to this point, but I finally reached it with great difficulty. Above a shelf, which hid it from view of the river, was the mouth of the cave.
There are steps leading from this entrance some thirty yards from what was at the time the cavern was inhabited, the level of the river. When I saw the chisel marks on the wall inside the entrance, I became interested, secured my gun and went in. During that trip I went back several hundred feet along the main passage, till I came to the main crypt in which I discovered the mummies.
One of these I stood up and photographed by flashlight. I gathered a number of relics, which I carried down the Colorado to Yuma, from whence I shipped them to Washington with details of the discovery. Following this, the explorations were undertaken”.
“The main passageway is about 12 feet wide, narrowing to 9 feet toward the farther end. About 57 feet from the entrance, the first passages branch off to the right and left, along which, on both sides, are a number of rooms about the size of ordinary living rooms of today, though some are 30 to 40 feet square.
These are entered by oval shaped doors and are ventilated by round air spaces through the walls into the passages. The walls are about 3 feet 6 inches in thickness. The passages are chiseled or hewn as straight as could be laid out by any engineer. The ceilings of many of the rooms converge to a center. The side passages near the entrance run at a sharp angle from the main hall, but toward the rear they gradually reach a right angle in direction”.
“Over a hundred feet from the entrance is a cross-hall, several hundred feet long, in which was found the idol, or image, of the peoples god, sitting cross-legged, with a Lotus flower or Lily in each hand. The cast of the face and the carving shows a skillful hand, and the entire is remarkably well preserved, as is everything in this cavern. The idol most resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus far, it is possible that the worship most resembles the ancient people of Thibet. Surrounding this idol are smaller images, some beautiful in form, other crooked necked and distorted shapes, symbolical, probably, of good and evil. There are two large cacti with protruding arms, one on each side of the dais on which the god squats. All this is carved out of hard rock resembling marble.
In the opposite corner of this cross-hall were found tools of all descriptions, made of copper. This people undoubtedly knew the lost art of hardening this metal, which has been sought by chemists for centuries without result. On a bench running around the workroom was some charcoal and other material probably used in the process. There is also slag and stuff similar to matte, showing that these ancient peoples smelted ores, but so far, no trace of where of how this was done has been discovered, nor the origin of the ore. Among other finds are vases or urns and cups of copper and gold made very artistic in design. The pottery work includes enameled ware and glazed vessels.
Oriental temples. They contain seeds of various kinds. One very large storehouse has not been entered, as it is twelve feet high and can be reached only from above. Two copper hooks extend on the edge, (continued on page 7) which indicates that some sort of ladder was attached. These granaries are rounded and the materials of which they are constructed, I think, is a very hard cement. A grey metal is also found in this cavern which puzzles the scientists, for it’s identity has not been established. It resembles platinum. Strewn promiscuously over the floor everywhere are what people call “Cats eyes” or “Tiger eyes”, a yellow stone of no great value. Each one is engraved with a head of a Malay type.”
“On all the urns, on the walls over the doorways and tablets of stone which were found by the image are mysterious hieroglyphics, the key to which the Smithsonian Institution hopes yet to discover. These writings resemble those found on the rocks about this valley. The engraving on the tablets probably has something to do with the religion of the people, Similar hieroglyphics have been found in the peninsula of Yucatan, but these are not found in the Orient. Some believe that these cave dwellers built the old canals in the Salt River valley. Among the pictorial writings only two animals are found. One is of prehistoric type”.
“The tomb or crypt in which the mummies are found is one of the largest of the chambers, the walls slanting back at an angle of about 35 degrees. One these are tiers of mummies, each one occupying a separate hewn shelf. At the head of each is a small bench on which is found copper cups and pieces of broken swords. Some of the mummies are covered with clay and all are wrapped in a bark fabric. The urns or cups on the lower tiers are crude, while as the higher shelves are reached, the urns are finer in design showing an inter-stage of civilization. It is worthy of note that all the mummies examined so far have proved to be male, no children or females being buried here. This leads to the belief that this interior section was the warriors barracks.
Another passageway leads to granaries such as are found in the Oriental temples. They contain seeds of various kinds. One very large storehouse has not been entered, as it is twelve feet high and can be reached only from above. Two copper hooks extend on the edge, (continued on page 7) which indicates that some sort of ladder was attached. These granaries are rounded and the materials of which they are constructed, I think, is a very hard cement. A grey metal is also found in this cavern which puzzles the scientists, for it’s identity has not been established. It resembles platinum. Strewn promiscuously over the floor everywhere are what people call “Cats eyes” or “Tiger eyes”, a yellow stone of no great value. Each one is engraved with a head of a Malay type.”
One theory is that the present Indian tribe found in Arizona are descendants of the serfs or slaves of the people which inhabited the cave. Undoubtedly a good many thousands of years before the Christian era a people lived here which reached a high state of civilization. The chronology of human history is full of gaps. Prof. Jordan is much enthused over the discoveries and believes that the find will prove of incalculable value in archaeological work.
One thing I have spoken of may be of interest. There is one chamber the passageways to which is not ventilated and when we approach it a deadly, snaky smell struck us. Our lights would not penetrate the gloom and until stronger ones are available, we will not know what the chamber contains. Some say snakes, but others boo-hoo this idea and think that it may contain a deadly gas or chemicals used by the ancients. No sounds are heard, but it smells just the same.
The whole underground institution gives one of shaky nerves the creeps. The gloom is like a weight on ones shoulders and our flashlights and candles only make the darkness blacker. Imagination can revel in conjectures and ungodly day-dreams back through the ages that have elapsed till the mind reels dizzily in space.
An Indian Legend
In connection with this story, it is notable that among the Hopis the tradition is told that their ancestors once lived in an underworld in the Grand Canyon till dissension arose between the good and the bad, the people of one heart, the people of two hearts. (Manchoto) who was their chief, counselled them to leave the underworld, but there was no way out. The chief then caused a tree to grow up and pierce the roof of the underworld and then the people of one heart climbed out. They tarried by Palsiaval (Red River), which is the Colorado, and grew grain and corn. They sent out a message to the temple of the sun, asking the blessing of peace, good will and rain for the people of one heart. That messenger never returned but, today at the Hopi village, at sundown can be seen the old men of the tribe out on the housetops gazing towards the sun, looking for the messenger. When he returns, their land and ancient dwelling place will be restored to them. That is the tradition.
Among the engravings of animals in the cave is seen a image of a heart over the spot where it is located. The legend was learned by W.E. Rollins, the artist, during a year spent with the Hopi Indians. There are two theories of the origin of the Egyptians. One is that they came from Asia: another is that the racial cradle was in the upper Nile region. Heeren, an Egyptologist, believed in the Indian origin of the Egyptians. The discoveries in the Grand Canyon may throw further light on human evolution and prehistoric ages.”
The Smithsonian Says they have no record of this happening and stories of a massive cover up have be around since the story made print in 1909. I guess one must pose the question as to why this finding must be suppressed for over 100 years. Perhaps solid proof of things that proved lies in the history of our word, or a alien base kept hidden for who knows how long before it’s discovery in 1909. In a world that fears solid proof more each day, we man never know.
Police in New Mexico believe that surveillance video capture footage of a real life ghost at the station.
The footage, which comes from the Espanola Police Station, was captured on Saturday night when Officer Karl Romero saw what he believes to be a ghost moving across the monitor screen. That particular camera was monitoring a fortified sally port at the time, and when Romero claims he witnessed the bright white person walking across the screen, he immediately reported it to his supervisors.
His supervisors did not find anybody or anything in the monitored area, and now, Karl Romero is led to believe that the only logical explanation is proof of a ghost.
“I do believe in ghosts,” said Detective Solomon Romero to KOAT Action News. “I don't know (what it was on the video), but we've had some unsolved murders in the area.”
Police add that there is no way in or out of the sally port without setting off an alarm, so they would have known if somebody made their way inside.
Check out the undeniably creepy footage below.
The giant creature first thought to be a great white shark was rapidly declared by experts to be an unknown species of shark as it’s great weight and size were unheard of. Analysis of the teeth suggest the shark to be a parent of the Megalodon, an extinct species of shark that lived approximately 28 to 1.5 million years ago, during the Cenozoic Era.
The sea creature that measures an incredible 10.4 meters and weighs an astounding 15.6 tons is the largest living shark ever caught to date, great white sharks reaching an impressive 7 tons at full growth, a size that is no match for this giant prehistoric shark that can reach an imposing 20 meters in length and possibly weight up to 30 tons, depending on estimates.
More than 20 local fishermen were needed to haul the giant beast onto the shore before authorities later brought heavy machinery in
“This is an incredible opportunity to work on a real specimen instead of trying to figure out the whole picture from different fossil composites” admits Smithsonian paleontologist Jeff Mayor, visibly enthused by the discovery.
The specimen was revealed not to be fully grown and is estimated to be 2 or 3 years old and already twice the size of a full grown white shark, which takes 5 years to reach its full growth.
A quick autopsy revealed the creature lives under great depths, feeding on giant squid and other fish not commonly found near the surface, which makes the discovery even more incredible to experts.
“Are rising sea temperatures forcing these beasts to come up closer to the shores or was this animal simply hurt and suffering from a disorienting handicap, these questions are left unanswered” claims local marine biologist Rajar Muhammar.
The giant sea creature had a total of 276 teeth in its jaws, spanning 5 rows with it’s biggest tooth measuring an incredible 15 cm
The recent discovery has raised great enthusiasm from experts abroad who are pondering the fact that other thought to be extinct species might still be dwelling in the depths of the seas. “This is very exciting news for the future of ocean exploration as technology is permitting us to go deeper and deeper every day” explains marine biologist Suzan Chopper from the University of Sydney, Australia. “I just don’t know how well our submarines would do against a giant monster like this” she adds.
Guangzhou woman finds live worms in KFC chicken wings
For those of you who, like us, planned on bopping over to Micky D’s for a hot chocolate after inhaling a 10-piece chicken wing meal from KFC this evening, we’d like to apologize in advance for (possibly) spoiling your late dinner plans. Yes, it appears that there has been another insect sighting of the fast-food assortment, this time in Guangzhou—and with worms. We’re disgusted to report that this instance also went unnoticed until the consumer was halfway through the infested product. Is god punishing us?
According to Apple Daily, a woman surnamed Liu ordered some chicken wings from the establishment on Saturday afternoon and saved some as leftovers. Upon returning to her half-eaten feast, she noticed the tiny white worms *squiggling* inside the chicken.
Liu called up some local reporters, who came by and confirmed the worm presence. Did maggots merely appear in the meat within hours? Was it the fault of the store? At the end of the day, it didn’t really matter, because after filing a complaint with the manager, the woman was only compensated with a free combo meal.
Apple Daily kindly provides some footage of the worms squiggling below.
Manila | A Filipino surgeon made a curious discovery while operating on one of his patient’s kidneys when he fell upon what appears to be man-made pearls.
The 54-year old patient who reportedly undertook surgery of his left kidney surprised surgeons when they found a dozen small pearls, weighting an impressive 1.3 ounces, inside his kidney.
The unusual discovery of pearls in a human body are the first occurrence of such a happening in medical history, a fact many experts find hard to believe.
A dozen small uneven featured pearls were found in the patient’s kidney
“If I had not seen this with my own eyes, I would’ve never believed this” comments surgeon Ken Guamatarez laughingly, who participated in the 5 hour long operation.
If the discovery has aroused much curiosity in the scientific community, no true conclusion has yet been made about how such a transformation within the human body could occur.
“Pearls are commonly known to be a by-product of an adaptive immune system-like function” explains biologist Mike G. Ward from Berkeley University. “Pearls are formed inside the shell of certain mollusks as a defense mechanism against a potentially threatening irritant such as a parasite inside the shell, or an attack from outside, injuring the mantle tissue” he adds. “It is very peculiar to find this occurring in a human body, I find this truly mind-bogling” admits the expert.
The patient, who has decided to donate his kidney’s pearls to the local University, hopes further studies will help to shed some light upon this fascinating discovery.
Beijing | Top officials of the Chinese Space Program have come out this morning and expressed their feelings that the American moon landings “were a complete hoax” reports the Beijing Daily Express.
200 high-ranking officials from the Chinese Space Program have signed a petition asking explanations from the American government and the release of classified NASA information concerning the American moon landings that would prove to the World that the moon landings were not an elaborately orchestrated hoax to fool the World about America’s space program capabilities.
These allegations have come up through recent analysis of pictures taken from the Chinese moon rover that allegedly found no traces of the American moon landings existing on the moon.
Pictures taken from Yutu, the Chinese moon rover, that has landed on the moon in 2013, allegedly shows no proof whatsoever of the American moon landings ever happening
World renowned Russian nuclear engineer Yury Ignatyevich Mukhin has also signed the petition as well as a dozen other top Russian engineers and ex-KGB agents claiming the Russian Government “had always been aware of the situation since the early 1970′s”These recent discoveries could strangely give credence to conspiracy theorists whom have claimed for decades that America had never gone to the moon but that the American moon landings were but an elaborate hoax to foul Russia into the space race and eventually, the nuclear arms race, with the purpose of ruining Russia, much like the financing of the Mujahideen forces during the soviet Afghanistan war successfully achieved.

‘Do you scan your veins before accessing your bank account? Use a microchip implanted in your hand to pay for your groceries? Or have a tattoo on your wrist that can unlock your smartphone?
If not, you or your friends may soon.
Once upon a time we only read about biometric identification and nanotechnology in apocalyptic novels, but now it is here.
And I recently encountered this technology. Just a few days ago while I was buying groceries, I noticed a button on a debit card machine that read “RFID tag.”
So instead of using cash or a debit card, I could have used an RFID tag to pay for my groceries. Or perhaps I could have even scanned my hand. That is, if I had an RFID chip implanted in it. The government and big corporations are promoting the technology.
In 2004, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the green light for Americans to have microchip implants to carry information. RFID chips are being used for everything from turning on your lights to turning on your cell phone to even tracking NFL players on the football field. Not all of them are impacts, but the technology works similarly either way.
Some Christians see the implants as the “mark of the beast” or warn they someday will be used for that purpose. The RFID implant technology is advancing just as the movie Left Behind movie — based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins – hits theaters. The Left Behind book series mentions a mark of the beast.
Man Has Implant Inserted In Hand
Ben Slater, an advertising director from Australia, had a microchip inserted into the webbing of his hand in a Melbourne tattoo parlor, and now is able to turn on lights and open doors without touching anything.
“The most obvious thing the chip allows me to do is store my contact information on it, so that I can just touch a phone with NFC (near field communication) and pass my information to their phone. That is a great party trick,” Slater told Daily Mail Australia.
“But it can also trigger an action on my phone to turn the house lights off, open a secure door which is set to recognize the chip or I could — and probably will — set up my car ignition to be linked to the chip for keyless entry and start up.”
Slater made the choice to get the microchip implant because he is interested in the future of technology.’
“I wanted to get the chip implanted to generate discussion,” he said.
“It intrigues me that we live in an age where this type of activity is even possible, especially for some seeming random guy in Australia to arrange to have done.”
Another technology allows temporary tattoos to unlock smartphones.
Barclays Bank Taps Into Vein Biometrics
Banks are looking to new technologies to thwart hackers. Barclays bank said it is working with Hitachi, the Japanese technology firm, to develop a biometric reader that scans a finger and identifies unique vein patterns to access accounts, instead of using a password or PIN.
In order to work, the finger must be attached to a live body. The finger is put into a scanner that plugs into a computer and resembles a small helmet that a Star Wars Stormtrooper might wear, according toReuters. Once the finger is scanned, the vein pattern is matched and stored on a SIM card.
Some banks in Japan use vein biometrics, but Barclays said it is the first bank to use it globally.
“Biometrics is the way to go in the future. We have no doubt about that, we are committed to it,” said Ashok Vaswani, chief executive of Barclays personal and corporate banking.
Vaswani said criminals were also getting more sophisticated, so banks need to stay ahead of them.
“You can’t let these guys create a breach in the dam. You’ve got to constantly stay ahead of the game,” Vaswani told Reuters.
No doubt, Left Behind will stir up much debate about the Rapture, but one thing that Christians can agree on is that Christ will return.
In fact, four in 10 Americans believe that Christ will return soon, according to a poll taken by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. We don’t know when Christ will return, but we are living in perilous times.
Tucked away behind the Ohio woods exists "Satan's Hollow" - a storm drain that supposedly serves as a gathering spot for devil worshipers.
"It's one of the best known, but least seen, urban legends around here," local blogger Rick Fenbers wrote. "A group of Satanists supposedly used to meet there in some type of altar room and conduct their rituals. ... They must have been pretty good, because the legend claims they managed to open a doorway to hell."
And, while it may simply sound like local folklore, some insist it's not. As WCPO-TV noted, many claim they've heard screams from inside the tunnels at night. Others say they've seen things that can't be explained.
Paranormal filmmaker David Scott published a YouTube tour of the site and said he was terrified throughout the shoot.
"This is one of the scariest locations I have ever investigated," he said.
Footage from his video shows the inside tunnels emblazoned with "666″ and other signs associated with the devil.
Rumors even persist that a demon known as the "Shadow Man" guards the portal to hell.
"He is some kind of hall monitor from hell, left here by Satan to guard these tunnels," Fenders explained. "The Shadow Man is said to appear in the form of a human, only completely blacked out. Hence his name."
Nevertheless, local law enforcement insists there is no paranormal activity taking place at "Satan's Hollow." Instead, they chalk interest up to rumors continuing to persist and say that because the storm drain is on private property, it's also a burden on those who live nearby.
"It's rough on the homeowners," Blue Ash Police Lt. Steve Schueler told WCPO. "People park in their driveway and try to get into the drainage system and nobody likes that. (The owner) has had to chase off some people, for sure."
Officers additionally dispute charges that the location is used for sacrifices.

"We've never had human sacrifice or any animal killings," Schueler said. "We've never had any of that."
"We've talked to some kids and warned them," the officer added to WCPO. "We were all teens at one time and did crazy stuff. We try to give them a warning and get them on their way."
However, despite warnings from authorities, it's likely the "portal to hell" will continue to attract curious visitors.

Medical staff in the central Colombian town of Honda have discovered a potato growing inside a patient's vagina, in an ill-fated attempt to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
The discovery was made when doctors attended to a 22-year-old woman complaining of abdominal pains this week, according to Colombia Reports, the country's largest and most respected English news website.
The young woman explained that she had been advised by her mother to insert a potato into her vagina as a means of contraception.
"My mum told me that if I didn't want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there, and I believed her," the unnamed patient told doctors.
After leaving the potato in place for two weeks, the patient began to experience intense pain in her lower abdomen. The potato had germinated and grown roots inside her, the website said.
When the nurse examined the patient, she found roots emerging from the young woman´s vagina.
The offending root vegetable was removed without need for surgery and doctors said there would be no lasting physical effects on the young woman.
Carolina Rojas, the attending nurse, pointed the finger of blame at the woman´s mother for giving her daughter bad advice on contraception methods.
The bizarre case sheds light on a lack of sex education, despite it being obligatory in the South American country.
A recent campaign by the organisation Bienestar Familiar, the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare, aimed at reducing the high levels of teenage pregnancy in Colombia found that young people's general rejection of conventional contraception methods coupled with a patriarchal society often saw girls pressured into having unsafe sex.
Colombia Reports stated that the Colombian Ministry of Education sociologist Maria Eugenia Rosselli, said that the lack of "sex talk" between young people and their parents had created a void of information, leading to high levels of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.
A 18-year-old girl in Batken, Kyrgyzstan went through a hair-raising medical procedure in order to have a nine-pound hairball removed from her stomach.
Ayperi Alekseeva was admitted into a hospital recently after she complained of stomach pains so severe that she was unable to eat anything, or even drink water.
X-rays revealed the hairy blockage and realized they needed to operate quickly.
“It was actually the only alternative, nothing else would solve the problem," surgeon Bahadir Bebezov said, according to News.com.au.
Bebezov said the hairball formed in Alekseeva's stomach because she had a nasty habit of picking up hair from the carpet and eating it and also chewing the tips of her hair.
"In fact her stomach was so badly swollen from hair and bits of wool from the carpet that it literally just oozed out as soon as the wall of the stomach was cut," Bebezov said according to the Telegraph.
After going through the ordeal of major surgery, Alekseeva has promised her hair-eating days are over.
She's not the only person who paid a price for having a bizarre taste in snack foods.
In October, 2012, doctors in Indore, India removed a hair ball weighing nearly four pounds from the stomach and small intestine of a 19-year-old girl.
Like Alekseeva, she too had a taste for hair, but combined it with chalk.
An ancient prophecy romanticised by ISIS militants warns of a battle between an Islamic army and an 'infidel horde' in Syria which will herald the destruction of the world.
The 1,300-year-old hadith, which is a report of the deeds, teachings and sayings of the Prophet Mohammed, refers to the 'horde' flying 80 banners as they take on a Muslim army in the Syrian town of Dabiq.
It warns of a 'malahim' - the equivalent to Armageddon in Christian teachings – in which the Muslims ultimately prevail.
