1948 ‘Aztec’ UFO Landing: New Evidence

New Mexico 1948:

A purported crashed UFO contains the bodies of sixteen dead aliens.

Bigfoot Expedition Gets Ticketed

Here at News From the Spirit World we encourage people to seek out the truth about strange events and interesting places, but we also encourage you not to try to make any money from it.

At least not without a permit.

This helpful hint seemed to escape Matt Pruitt, who went with around thirty or so people in tow to the Buffalo National River in Arkansas to hunt for Bigfoot. Some of the people on this expedition say they paid payed between $300 to $500 dollars to be part of a three day hunt for the legendary Sasquatch.

However, since Pruitt did not have any legal permission to charge people for such tours, he was slapped with a violation from Forest Rangers Billy Bell and Ben Henthorne after a  concessionaire in the Steel Creek Campground area had met a couple of park goers who told him about the Bigfoot expedition.

Pruitt is reported to have connections to The Bigfoot Field Researcher’s Organization.

Amityville Murders: The US Gov Did It!

As anyone who has ever looked into the history and circumstances of the real life Amityville Horror can attest to, the subject certainly has it’s fair share of debates and differing opinion. Whether it is a debate about how many gunman killed the DeFeo family to whether the whole Lutz story was a hoax, there are small areas of the internet where this is debated fiercely on message boards…

Of course, when you bring the internet into any paranormal debate, it also means you get your cranks and nutters, be it by design or by someone being a troll, they come in all shapes and sizes.

Off the wall theory’s are also their specialty as well, and the Amityville story pulls in some doozys, from Indian Chiefs to pictures of the devil himself to linking the whole affair to the music of Pink Floyd, there are some big fish tales out in the water behind Ocean Ave.

One of these is a gentleman who showed up at the Amityville Truth Board some time ago, with a desire to share his ‘fictional’ story about how the US Government was responsible for the murder of the DeFeo family, and involves the Italian Mob and futuristic weapons.

The importance of science in paranormal research

By D.A. Lascelles

An article in The Guardian caught my eye today and I felt it had relevance to this blog for a number of reasons. First of all, the title, Precognition studies and the curse of the failed replications, definitely hinted at a link to the spirit world and the accompanying photograph of a spiritualist gazing into a crystal ball only added to that appearance. Secondly, the main meat of the article touched on something very close to my heart with regards to parapsychology and any research into the spirit world – the importance of good science.

Naked Doctor Who Fans on Twitter? (Updated)

By Thomas Spychalski

The BBC television series Doctor Who has become a cultural icon around the world and more and more proof of it’s expanding reach can be found with how it has spread out online.

The show, which was originally broadcast way back in 1963 has a cult following of rabid fans that literally live and breathe the show, especially after it’s return to our television screen in 2005.

But like all icons, you know it has really hit the big time when the show finds its way into the stranger parts of modern culture, such as what appears to be a ploy to lure male Doctor Who fans onto a pornographic website to see naked female Doctor Who fans.

No seriously.

A lot of people I have met over the years that either are or claim to be paranormal investigators or have a strong interest in the field have very little knowledge and experience in an area of study, which to me should be a prerequisite to any one who wishes to study the field seriously.
