Strange Stories

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - July 13, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Lionel Fanthorpe, John M. Curtis

Author of over 250 books, Lionel Fanthorpe shared unusual stories and also discussed various "time slip" events. These are incidents where people seemingly slip into the past or future for brief periods. Two women were visiting the Palace of Versailles and appeared to see scenery that dated back over a hundred years. In another instance, a man stopped at a restroom and when he came out cars were moving completely silently as though he'd gone into the future, said Fanthorpe.

He also talked about the Flannan Isle mystery, in which three lighthouse keepers disappeared together around 1900. Three great gulls were seen flying away and legend has it that these men were turned into seabirds.

Fanthorpe recounted the "Oak Island Money Pit" tale. At the end of the 18th century, three teenagers in Nova Scotia discovered a patch of earth on an island they were visiting and began to dig, thinking they had found a pirate's treasure. At each 10 ft. level oak logs were found, but only more landfill was beneath. An adult team dug down 100 feet whereupon the site became flooded. Subsequent expeditions over the last 200 years have had no more success, reported Fanthorpe, who theorized that the pit could be a special grave set up by a religious colony in order to protect from grave robbers or possibly treasure hidden by the Knights Templar, 100 years before Columbus arrived in America.

Middle East Update

First hour guest, columnist John M. Curtis presented analysis of the current conflicts in the Middle East. He does not see the Israel/Lebanon situation escalating much further, and suggested that the attacks could have been calculated by the U.S. to let Israel "soften up" Hezbollah. He also pointed at Iran as triggering the conflict to deflect attention away from them at the upcoming G-8 summit.
