Celtic Origins, Cyrptids & End Times

Show Archive
Date: Monday - October 9, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Doug Elwell, Sean David Morton

Publisher of the online travel journal, Mysterious World, Doug Elwell discussed the Celtic origins of Halloween, fairies and leprechauns. He also touched on his interests in cryptids, fallen angels and End Times prophecy. The word leprechaun means "little people," and these one-foot tall males seen in Ireland were thought to be cast off by fairies, he explained. They were known for playing music, hanging out, living in old ruins or trees, and occasionally stealing-- sometimes they could even kill or attack people if their environments were disturbed, said Elwell. While not seen much today, he classified them as fallen angels or demons.

Our "trick or treat" tradition of Halloween comes from the Celts, where costumes were used to hide recognition, by people who might choose to play a "trick" on those they were calling upon, he detailed.
Elwell spoke about Thunderbirds (also called Piasa), the huge eagle-like birds seen in the United States-- their name is said to come from their wing flapping which sounds like a thunder clap. The birds were alleged to pick up cattle as their prey, bringing them back to their nests-- the size of a "small house." Indian lore has it that they even were able to carry off a killer whale, he recounted.

Morton Update

First half-hour guest, intuitive Sean David Morton updated his predictions. Regarding North Korea, his "gut reaction" was they did not conduct an actual nuclear test. He believes Kim Jong Il will become more dangerous to China and that eventually North and South Korea will reunite. He also sees a "red mercury" explosion occurring in Washington DC, possibly this year, that will lead to the federal capital moving to Denver.
