    The Natufian Culture & The Garden Of Eden?

    Dark Matter and Dark Energy? Probably solved.

    We have certainly heard a lot of hubbub about Dark Matter and Dark Energy of late, and a lot of us were wondering if someone forgot to "carry the 1" somewhere in the calculations.

    Abbagoochie

    If something is totally FUBAR in the USA, it is almost always in West Virginia. The place is cursed. It doesn't matter if it is being a coal state during global warming, or the old news oxycontin epidemic, the moth man or Indrid Cold, or the sheepsquatch, or the countless cult compounds and...

    The Cadaver Synod

    For sheer perversity, this historical event is one of the most remarkable and hilarious, and presents some ongoing issues for the Catholic Church that they would rather not confront. Also, upon searching the forums, the only reference I could find to the Cadaver Synod was one of my own...

    Strange Blue Light Follows A Cruise Ship

    I am hoping the collective brilliance of you fine Forteans can help me with an interesting sighting one of my neighbors told me about that I have frankly not heard the likes of before. She saw the same thing on two occasions while on a P&O cruise in the Pacific in 2006. I don't want to dump...

    The Witcher (by Andrej Sapkowski)

    I was surprised to see that nobody had posted anything about "The Witcher" by Andrej Sapkowski. Why am I posting this now?

    A Legally Haunted House: Stambovsky Vs Ackley

    I have just stumbled over this little gem for the first time. Apparently in 1991 the New York Supreme Court ruled that a house was legally haunted, and not disclosing such information could void a contract. If ghosts don't exist, how can this ruling be valid? Ergo, ghosts must exist. The...

    Issue With Cursor On The Site

    When I try to correct something I have written something odd happens. I delete things, but then when I go to re-enter the correct text, the cursor jumps to the start of the word and I end up writing pirevam instead of vampire or somesuch. Is this a known issue? It is annoying. I hope someone...

    The Penanggalan

    The Penanggalan is a detached female head capable of flying about on its own. As it flies, the stomach and entrails dangle below it, and these organs twinkle like fireflies as the Penanggalan moves through the night. It is a creature of folklore from the Malaysian Peninsula with echoes in...

    JUCHE: The Religion you have probably never heard of that is larger than Judaism.

    While I expect that the Fortean Times forum audience is better informed about "matters fringe" than nearly everybody, I have posted this little tidbit in case someone has overlooked this totalitarian religious anomaly. Juche is the official religion of North Korea. Here are a few links to help...
