Friday Night Feature: The Double Warning

--By Betsy Balega This happened to me back when I was in high school in Pennsylvania. I was a junior, and there was a sophomore girl, Michelle D., who was trying to make a little extra cash, by selling Avon.I was making extra money, by babysitting, and to be honest, I was not into buying Avon. But, one Monday, we were chatting after school and Michelle showed me her Avon book.Understanding how hard it is for us kids to get extra cash, I decided to cut her a break, and I ordered some Avon, under $10 worth. She made out my order, then said, "You don't have to pay me till Tuesday, not tomorrow (which was Tuesday), but next Tuesday, when the orders come in." I was about to say, "OK." When I heard a voice say, "You will never pay this girl any money, because she is going to die, next Sunday, in a car accident, with her father." I kept quiet and said "Ok, next Tuesday is fine." I never gave Michelle the warning. The next Sunday, my Mom and Dad, and I went o

Ghostly Experiments

Tonight's guest, Dr. Richard Wiseman, has conducted scientific investigations into a number of interesting areas, including that of ghostly phenomena. He and his associates set up two large scale experiments to study why some people report ghostly sensations (such as seeing apparitions or feeling cold spots) in allegedly haunted locations. The first study took place in 1999 in England's Hampton Court Palace, which has long been said to be haunted by Catherine Howard, who was beheaded by order of her husband King Henry VIII. Over the years, some 300 people have reported strange occurrences in the gallery, where Catherine is said to have pleaded for her life. The study involved 1,000 members of the public who were given questionnaires about their experiences and also employed high tech equipment such as thermal-imaging. The results showed unusual sensations were tied to specific locations, though Wiseman believes "some of these experiences were caused by natural phenomena, such as su

Nibiru, Now or in 2012?

Tonight's guest, Marshall Masters has studied a variety of data to conclude that Nibiru (an hypothesized additional planet on a long period orbit) does pass close enough to Earth to create havoc. In an article on his website, he suggests a flyby is more likely to occur around 2012 than this year. This would correlate the event with the end of the Mayan calendar. Masters believes the most solid indications for Nibiru's presence are "precursor events" in our solar system. He lists such changes as Pluto undergoing global warming, increases in magnetic activity on Saturn and volcanic eruptions on Io, as all potentially having the same root cause. However he writes, "the fact is that if Nibiru were going to be here, an object this massive would have already been in the news for months…Sure, the government can make people, information and things disappear, but not entire planets." Meanwhile Nancy Lieder, the alien contactee, who has been predicting the arrival of Planet X in thi

Friday Night Feature: Strange Doings at an Abandoned Insane Asylum

--by Stu (kauff1111@juno.com) View Photos Here. The Philadelphia Hospital For The Mentally Ill opened in 1912. Because of unacceptable, deplorable conditions, the State of PA. took it over in 1937. The state finally closed the hospital in 1990 because of patient abuse and overcrowding. The hospital has nothing but horror stories. It was a very sad place. It held everyone from mentally ill orphans to the criminally insane. It now sits abandoned except for the weekend partiers, the urban explorers, and the ghost hunters. I live a mile away from it and frequently explore its twenty-five buildings, seven of them being super structures, and its catacombs. They are all connected by underground tunnels. The hospitals' history is straight out of a horror film. The stories are many, some true, some not. One in question concerns a mass grave on the grounds. It's referred to as John Doe's morgue. Another story is, a hatchet man used to chase people through the catacombs, this is tru

Eisenhower & the Aliens

Tonight's guest Robert O. Dean believes the US government has had knowledge of an extraterrestrial reality for quite some time. One fascinating account that would be corroboration of this, concerns a secretive visit that President Eisenhower allegedly made to Muroc Field (now Edwards Air Force Base) in 1954. He was there to view ET craft— and reportedly even watched a disc land. Gerald Light, an eyewitness to the encounter, who attended the meeting with a representative of Hearst Newspapers, claimed that Roman Catholic bishop James McIntyre and Edward Nourse of the Brookings Institute were also there. Light referred to the aliens as "the Etherians" (another reported witness, a British pilot, said they were basically human in appearance). According to Light's report, the aliens requested that Eisenhower make the public aware of their existence, but the President didn't believe people were ready for such a bombshell. "I watched the pathetic bewilderment of rather brilliant bra

Spotlight on: Mediums

Tonight's guest, Hans King, gleans knowledge from the Other Side through his mediumistic abilities. Mediums are "those who are able to tune into the faster vibration of the spirit body after death," writes James Van Praagh in his bestseller Talking to Heaven. This differentiates them from psychics, who don't necessarily have the ability to communicate with discarnate spirits. Another well-known medium, John Holland, refers to himself as a drawbridge: "I raise my energy, and the spirits lower theirs. A bridge is then built and using the power of love, we have a connection that flows, with feelings, words, and memories." Mediumships fall into two categories: mental and physical. Mental mediums typically receive their communications telepathically, but among the forms physical mediumship can take are: rappings, levitation, apports (appearance of objects) and channeling. In the case of channeling the discarnate spirit will speak directly through the medium, often in a voice that is d

Full Moon Open Lines

It was Full Moon Open Lines on the second half of Friday's program. One caller related a fascinating episode of when he belonged to a meditation group that was trying to raise their spiritual levels. After a session, the caller said he witnessed a member put his hand on the couch for support as he was about to stand up and "his hand went right through the couch like he was phasing in and out," and was vibrating at a higher plane. "I lived ten years in a dream," said Kevin in Springfield who told of having a life-changing dream one night involving a woman he didn't know at the time. In the dream they were living together and had two children. After the night of his long dream he said he broke up with his current girlfriend and couldn't get the dream woman out of his mind. Six months later on a trip to New Orleans he ran into the woman in his dream. "Are you Laura?" he asked her and she said yes. It turned out she had had the same dream about him. They have been happily married for

The Mad Gasser

Tonight's guest, Robert Bartholomew, has written about the case known as "The Mad Gasser," and declared it to be a classic case of mass hysteria. Back in September of 1944, the town of Matoon, Illinois was panicked by reports of a "Mad Gasser" or "Mad Anesthetist." The Gasser was allegedly roaming the community and spraying a peculiar smelling gas through the windows of unsuspecting victims.

Spotlight on: The Indigo Children

Tonight's guest Doreen Virtue has written about the phenomenon known as Indigo Children (the group that came before the Crystal Children) who have been so named because their auras are said to be indigo (dark blue with a touch of red). "The color indigo represents the third eye chakra, the energy center of psychic activity, which is believed to be wide open on most indigos," writes Wendy Chapman, the director of the Metagifted Resource Organization...

Columbia, Iraq & The West Wing

Richard C. Hoagland (website) appeared during the first half of Friday's show discussing a variety of topics. "Management at NASA knew Columbia was doomed at the get-go," Hoagland said and he believes some type of rescue mission could and should have been attempted. Hoagland also discussed the looting of the museum in Baghdad, pointing out the museum's offices were destroyed and the records of the collection were missing. He suggested that an inside job took place, which removed countless un-translated cuneiform tablets "because they contain the record of what really happened 7,000 years ago when kingship was lowered from heaven, when something amazing happened to launch full blown…all civilization on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates." A recent episode of the TV show The West Wing was also singled out by Hoagland for its insightful treatment of the life on Mars issue. In the plotline, it was revealed that the Department of Defense had concealed information about Mars, and

The Motel Shadow Person

--by Katie K. This story is PG-rated, but it is true and happened tome. A few years back, my roommate (at the time) and Iwould occasionally drive around the eastern half ofthe country, selling t-shirts for a young risingcountry singer (no one you'd know as he still hasn'trisen far!). Anyway, on one of these jaunts we drove from Wisconsinto Alabama overnight, driving straight throughthunderstorms, lightning and tornadoes in Tennessee.Needless to say, by the time we arrived at our motelat 4AM, we were exhausted. The singer's manager hadtold us that he reserved a pre-paid room for us which wewere very grateful for, so we checked in, planning ongoing straight to the room and getting some sleep. The room was a typical small motel room on the firstfloor with an entrance direct from the parking lot. Myroommate crashed out on the bed nearest the door whileI took the other one closest to the bathroom, thinkingI would fall right asleep. However, I w

Abduction Face Off

Tonight's guest Budd Hopkins and other researchers have long faced scrutiny for bringing to light controversial reports of alien abduction that many find too incredible to believe. For instance the 1996 PBS documentary program Kidnapped by UFOs? produced by NOVA was considered by many in the ufological field to be a hatchet job, deliberately ignoring research. Now in an article penned by Hopkins on his website, he outlines how the abductees themselves have come under attack by various debunkers. One newer report of skeptical research comes from Professor Richard McNally of Harvard who concludes that while abductees show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, it may stem from their strong beliefs in their alien encounters which he suggests are based on fantasies and sleep disorders. I examined the phenomenon of sleep paralysis (SP) for After Dark in 2001 and found that it was widely cited by skeptics as the cause of alien abduction reports. Susan Blackmore posited in th

Sounds of Hell

Friday Night Feature took the night off, so that we could bring you another special request-- your own personal mp3 of the ever-popular "Sounds of Hell." Allegedly the cacophony was recorded in Russia where someone placed a microphone into a hole that ran deep into the earth. Click here to have a listen. Some say this story falls into the Urban Legend bin. Check out this piece from the folks at Snopes.com for their take.

Sylvia Sees Into the Future

Tonight's guest, psychic Sylvia Browne has offered a set of predictions for the next 100 years on her website. Here are a few of them to consider: Aliens will begin to show themselves in the year 2010, they will not harm us, they simply want to see what we are doing to this planet. They will teach us how to use anti-gravity devices again, such as they did for the pyramids.Third floor of houses have rollback roofs to allow Hovercrafts to come and go. People will be able to simply "walk out" of their bodies upon death. There will be no US Presidency; our government will go back to a Greek Senate structure. Atlantis will begin to show itself by 2023 and be fully visible by 2026. West Coast goes under in 2026. Parts of the East Coast also get inundated. Tsunamis will wipe out a large portion of Japan. The Hawaiian Islands will have upheaval and be the site of a large new landmass. To read more of Sylvia Browne's predictions visit this page.
