Codex Gigas (Giant Book) is the largest medieval manuscript in the world. It’s remarkable to look at, but the story of it’s origin is certainly a strange one: Legend has it, that in the middle ages a blasphemous monk was set to be executed by being encased inside a wall. In the hope of redeeming himself and escaping this harsh penalty, he vowed to create a huge book to glorify his religion, a book that would contain the entirety of human knowledge. He promised that in a year, the book would be complete. However, on the last night, he became sure that he could not complete this task alone, so he prayed to the Devil, asking him to help him finish the book in exchange for his soul. The devil completed the manuscript and the monk added the devil’s picture out of gratitude for his aid. Although this is just a legend, experts have revealed that the book is so massive, that it would have taken a staggering 5 years of non-stop writing to produce it. Given the fact that the monk only had 1 year, the story doesn’t quite add-up and remains an eerie mystery.

“This is the craziest UFO phenomena true story, and it came from my Dad. 1960’s in Ethiopia, my Dad is just a child (9yrs. old) at the time playing with his best friend Gabriel after school. They were playing in the fenced backyard of my dad’s house. My dad turns his back for a second then turns to look back at his friend and Gabriel is gone… It’s important to note that my dad and Gabriel were from the top 1% of Ethiopia’s ruling elite, my dad’s father was Minister of interior of Ethiopia and Gabriel’s father was a 4 star General of Ethiopia. The backyard Gabriel disappeared from had 10 foot bricked walls with armed guards patrolling on the outside.

A couple of hours pass, his parents, my dad’s parents and guards are searching but no Gabriel. 48 hours pass, now there is a nation-wide search for this important General’s kid, it’s on the News, police are searching door to door describing him and what he was wearing when he disappeared (he was wearing a his private school uniform, white shirt, brown pants). Helicopters even searched the country side looking for him, still nothing. A month passes, then 2 then 4, people start loosing hope that he would ever be found and think the worst.

EXACTLY 6 MONTHS to the Day he disappeared, Gabriel appears back in my dad’s backyard….. He was wearing the same white shirt private school uniform and it was still clean, he looked exactly the same as when he disappeared…. This is where it starts to get weird, once they confirmed his was okay they starting asking where he had been. He said couple of nice men took him on a trip, he was in a white room that glowed and other children were there from different countries, he said he was surprised that the nice men who looked like white guys could speak Ethiopian and he could understand what the other children were saying even though they were not Ethiopian.

The white glowing room had no windows and the doors disappeared into the walls, there were buttons on the walls and if a kid pushed them a bed would come out of the wall. He said he was then all of a sudden in a city, that was glowing, clean, and cars were flying around him. He said there were people there but they looked strange, like us but different. One nice man was still with him and took him to a tall building, where he said he had to stay there for a while, but showed him a room that he could use for entertainment. Gabriel said, he could push a button and the room itself goes places, an open field, the beach, the room itself even flys. He said after a couple of hours he was taken back to Ethiopia and appeared in the backyard, he thought he was only gone a couple hours total. No one believed him, and Ethiopia being a super religious country, most adults around him thought he got possessed by the devil, Gabriel even was forced to see a priest to get the evil spirits out of him. My dad still kept in contact with him throughout their lives, Gabriel got a doctorate in Physics and I believe works Holland still.”

The Rock Cross.

jew-tube submitted: 

  I just read your post about the catacombs in Paris, France, and the paranormal things that occur there. This is a 100% true story that happened to me.

When I wish twelve I visited Paris on holiday, and the Catacombs were number one on my sight-seeing the list. My cousin and I went together, her being much older than me, and it was suggested by the cashier I do not enter. Back then I thought maybe because I was young she might think I would be scared by seeing so many dead people, but after my experience I understand why.

Erin (my cousin) and I walked along the musty corridors and at this point I felt nothing. There were passages from the Bible written on the wall in French about death and the relief of the afterlife, I read each on (despite being an atheist) in respect for the deceased. 

We had been in the tunnels for about two hours now, and felt very drawn to a certain chamber, one with a large rock in the center. Erin was pre occupied with the history of the tunnels, and told me to go ahead and explore.
I was suddenly alone. All the Americans from before had shuffled onto a new chamber and there was no one left in the room but myself.

Then I did something I half-regret. I touched the large rock and traced my fingers over the cross carved on it.  I felt very faint at that moment, but I dismissed it as being underground too long. 
I felt pressure on my left wrist, but I was too afraid too look at it. I got very cold, and all the hairs on the back of my neck stood up, then felt like they were being forced down by something.
My nose started to ich and when I went to scratch it, it was bleeding get a lot. 

I decided to leave the room, Erin was waiting for me and we quickly left the catacombs to find a bathroom for my nose.

The next day my wrist and neck were bruised purple and black. My nose was very swollen. There were some faint green bruises on my hips identical to each other though I do not remember feeling pain there.

When I left the chamber in the tomb, feeling like I had upset a spirit of some sort, I apologized aloud to it.

The last thing I heard was a low growl saying: get out

Moscow Resident Captures Footage of a UFO Formation.

A man named Timur recently captured this video of four glowing orbs hovering over Moscow. The footage, which was captured just last month (January 2016), has already amassed tens of thousands of views.

When speaking with local media, Timur reportedly said, “There were four balls of light. A red one to the left, two white ones in the middle and a less bright one to the right. Sometimes the one on the right would disappear and come back. All together, they made the geometric shape of a rhombus. I’ve been living in the district for two years, and have never seen anything like that before.

After reviewing the footage, UFO expert Vadim Chernobrov says he believes the footage is genuine. “The lights cannot be explained as either an atmospheric or a cosmic image.” Vadim said. “The chance of it being some sort of mirage is also impossible due to the precise geometric form the objects have formed. Some have said they could look like Chinese lanterns but I would dismiss this possibility because of the movements and speed of the objects.

Many are still not convinced that the footage shows actual extraterrestrial aircraft. Some adamantly believe the lights were Chinese lanterns, while others speculate that they were normal aircraft, such as helicopters or drones. 

What do you think? Are the lights seen in this video of otherworldly origin? Or might there be a more conventional explanation?

Music Under the Bed

ichigen-moved submitted

  I used to have a fascination with music boxes. I have quite a few, even broken ones. I haven’t rid myself of them, I still find them beautiful; but now I will not turn them on.

Four years ago in my room full of shelves where I knew the location of all five music boxes, I lay reading. I had turned on one of my favourite boxes, a golden one with two blue dolphins whose tune I knew well. Sometime in the middle of my book the music ended and I continued reading for a few more hours, not wanting to leave the comfort of my bed to turn on another.

Eventually, I grew tired and placed my book down on my bedside. I turned off the lights and tucked myself into bed. It takes me a while to sleep, so I was just focused on shutting my eyes and getting comfortable. Not long after, I began to hear a tune.

It was unfamiliar, but beautiful. It was loud, louder than my boxes, but slightly muffled– as if it were close but hidden.

Hidden underneath my bed.

I lay there frozen, listening to this unfamiliar tune that slowly transitioned from a beautiful and interesting melody to one that was beautifully terrifying. At first I thought it must be my mind playing tricks, that I should just continue to lie there until it stopped or my thoughts were redirected– but it didn’t stop. It kept playing and I knew the sound was far too real to be in my head.

Without waiting for the end, I jumped from my bed, barely giving my feet time to hit the ground before I was aiming for the door and ripping it open. I ran into the living room where my family sat watching television loudly. Normally I would have heard it from my bedroom, and it wasn’t until then that I realized I had not heard a single sound from the loudness that always filled my house or the freeway just down the hill from us.

I searched under my bed countless times and have since bought a new one and completely replaced everything that was under or near my bed.

I still have not found the source of that traumatically wonderful noise.

Notorious ‘Demon House’ Torn Down After Purchase By 'Ghost Adventures’ Star

Indiana’s so-called “demon house” is no more.

The home that sparked national attention over reports of it being infested with powerful demonic activity, leading to the purported possession of nearly an entire family, has been torn down, the Indiana Star reported.

The razing of the Gary, Indiana property followed its purchase by the host and executive producer of “Ghost Adventures,” Zak Bagans in early 2014.

Bagans said he now plans to release a documentary on the residence’s haunting later this year which will reveal the reason behind its demolition.

“Something was inside that house that had the ability to do things that I have never seen before — things that others carrying the highest forms of credibility couldn’t explain either,” he told the IndyStar via email. “There was something there that was very dark yet highly intelligent and powerful.”

One of its last residents was mother-of-three, Latoya Ammons, who sought religious, medical and law enforcement help after allegedly experiencing a series of disturbing events inside. Those included family members levitating, speaking in tongues, convulsing and acting extremely violent.

Some of the incidents were backed up by members of the local police department, as well as workers with the state’s Department of Child Services.

In one such incident, one of Ammons’ children was described as walking backwards up a wall inside of a hospital room, flipping into the air and landing on his feet. In another instance, at their doctor’s office, medical staff reported seeing one of the boys being lifted and thrown into a wall “without nobody touching him,” according to a Department of Child Services report.

After residing in the rental home from November 2011 until May 2012, the family was able to move to Indianapolis. The horrifying events were said to have then stopped for them. (Source)

The Edinburgh Vaults

a-little-action-is-all-i-need-d submitted
 
Have you ever heard of the Edinburgh Vaults? I think it’s something you would be interested in.

I was visiting a friend of mine who is currently doing her semester abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland, when we unsuspectingly went on the “Underground City Tour” - I am very easily frightend, I have to admit, but I never ever dreamed of something like this. I didnt know much about the history of Edinburgh, just as my friend who went with me. The tour guide first told us some historical facts like when they started building the town walls that surrounded Edinburgh for like 250 years. Those walls were built to keep enemys outside … but they also kept the inhabitants inside and the number of inhabitants started to increase rapidly because of several reasons. At first they started to build high houses (in 1600 they were able to build houses with 14 storeys … crazy) then they started to dig chambers into the earth. Soon the city was so overcrowded that people were forced to move into those chambers below ground (they built them in bridges and actually … everywhere). And this tour took place exactly in some of those chambers, or vaults  underneath the cowgate in Edinburgh. I was scared to death down there … you really just feel uneasy there, it’s a terrible feeling even if you don’t know what happened there .. I seriously think they are haunted.

Our tour guide told us that the ghost or spirits down there don’t like to be disturbed and start to attack- no “interact” with some of the tour visitors and we should check our body afterwards for scratches, blood or any other unusual marks (since a lot of visitors leave the vaults with scratches that haven’t been there before).

When my friend and I came home we started to watch TV before we wanted to go to bed because we needed some distraction (we were still frightened like we’ve never been before). After an hour my friend went to the bathroom to change into her pyjama and brush her teeth. 10 minutes later she came back to the living room with angst written across her white face. She just lifted her right leg and told me to take a look at her toe. It was full of blood and we were panic-stricken.
This happened about 2 weeks ago … and I still feel haunted, somehow.

(And if you are interested in those vaults, you should read The Town Below The Grounds by Jan-Andrew Henderson… I’m reading it atm, because I’m way too curious to forget my fear of paranormal sightings)

Malahide Castle

This 800-year-old castle is filled with many ghosts. The most bizarre story associated with the place is that of Puck, who was once a court jester. It seems that Puck got involved with a female prisoner on site, and shortly thereafter, he was found dead outside of the caste.

Some say that he was stabbed, and others claim that he killed himself. But before he met his end, he vowed to be the caretaker of the castle. To this day, Puck can be seen throughout the building. He’s even known to show up in tourists’ pictures. (Source)
