Göbekli Tepe Part 3

6/17/2018
More
Something or someone of great importance and influence had convinced and motivated these neolithic hunter-gatherers to put their way of life on hold and come together as a group to undertake such a tremendous project as Göbekli Tepe. This is likely the first time hundreds of prehistoric peoples had formed an organized collective in order to build a religious sanctuary. The work would've taken years to accomplish and the temple would be built upon for many centuries more. The result of this...

Göbekli Tepe Part 2

6/10/2018
More
What we've learned so far about Göbekli Tepe, is what it appears to be, which is that it is possibly the world's oldest sacred temple. We think we know who built it: a collective of hunter-gatherers, who had not yet learned the skills of farming. We also think we know approximately when. But the answers to the questions of how and why and what did it all mean to these Neolithic peoples may not be so easily obtained. In fact, since the 1960s at least in American archaeology, a debate still...

Göbekli Tepe Part 1

5/26/2018
More
In 1963, archaeologists from the University of Chicago and Istanbul University examined a site known by locals as Göbekli Tepe, or "Potbelly Hill." They dismissed the site at the time as merely a medieval cemetery due to the numerous slabs of stone thought to be grave markers. However, in 1993, German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt, who was doing work at another Neolithic site in nearby Nevalı Çori, heard about the report and decided to investigate it for himself. What Schmidt and his team...

EVPs at the KPW

More
One of the highlights of our appearance at the Kent Paranormal Weekend was participating in our very first Ghost Hunt! The event took place at the Kent Stage in Kent, Ohio which was first built in 1927 and since then has continued to host concerts, films, and various performances. The theater is also host to a cast of characters who were once somehow connected to this historic theater and whose spirits remain there. We explored the most haunted areas of the theater and tried our hand at...

Earhart's Plane Found?

5/5/2018
More
Of all the hypotheses of what happened to Amelia Earhart and her Electra 10-E, William "Bill" Snavely, Jr.'s may be the only one that starts with a found plane and traces her route backward towards her last known contact point. Operating on a hunch that due to low fuel, Earhart may have decided to turn back to a viable landing strip, which would have taken her directly over the path of Buka Island, east of Papua New Guinea. While in Buka searching for clues, Snavely received a tip that an...

Resurrection Mary Part 4

4/21/2018
More
If Resurrection Mary is just an Urban Legend, merely another variation of the "Vanishing Hitchhiker" then her story is a common one, with similar descriptions found in folklore all over the world. If she is a spirit, then she's also not alone, because it seems people of every country have come forward with testimony of meeting a real "Lady in White." If these ladies are a myth, or if they're real, or some combination of both, why are they so universally elemental? Why is she so primal? Do...
