Trends we think will lead to future tech often fizzle out or go in previously unconsidered directions.

Did you know that The Bible actually talks about ghosts? No really, it's not something you were probably taught in Sunday school and I don't mean it in the sense of the resurrected dead either. I mean there are literally multiple scenes in The Bible where ghosts were contacted by mediums. One story in the Old Testament relates how a prophet was summoned from the dead to give advice to the King including how and where it happened. Today on DragonKing Dark we discuss ghosts in The Bible.

It's one of the most famous advanced artifacts in popular culture. It's past and even it's discovery is shrouded in mystery.

And the lies we are telling each other and believing because we don't know any better. We now live in an era constructed and...
