Last Show Recap

World

Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., an authority in bridging science and spirit, and a leading voice in new biology, discussed his belief that that if we use the 50 trillion cells that live harmoniously in every healthy human body as a model, we can create a new "super organism" called humanity, as well as how cellular studies point to such concepts as immortality, spirituality and mind over genes.

First hour guest, college instructor Mitchel Townsend reported on his research paper which he believes proves that a Bigfoot-like creature resides in the Mount St. Helens area of Washington state.

World's Weirdest Places

Show Archive
Date: Sunday - October 28, 2012
Host: George Knapp
Guests: Nick Redfern, Jeffrey M. Smith

George Knapp was joined by Fortean researcher Nick Redfern for a discussion on paranormal hot spots that can be found across the globe. "I think there is evidence that there are places that do act like a magnet or a doorway" for strange phenomena, he argued. As such, Redfern explained that his research focused on examining isolated areas where multiple facets of the paranormal have been reported over considerable lengths of time. The town of Jefferson, Texas, Loch Ness in Scotland and Mount Shasta in California were some of these paranormal hot spots identified by Redfern. Over the course of the evening, he also shared his thoughts on the nature of mysteries like Bigfoot, Men in Black, and ghosts.

Devil's Gate Dam in southern California was one paranormal hot spot where, Redfern observed, "there's nothing positive about any of the weirdness that's gone on there." Located a few miles from Los Angeles, the canyon was a favorite haunt of notorious rocket scientist and occultist Jack Parsons, who was said to have performed arcane rituals there. Additionally, the area is home to a bridge where "in less than a century, more than 100 people have thrown themselves off to their death in the river bed below," causing the landmark to be known by locals as "suicide bridge." Redfern also noted that, in the 1950's, the location was the site of a series of grisly child killings. In modern times, Redfern said, there have been reports of a "winged humanoid-type creature" in the area.

Another location, detailed by Redfern, was a forest called Cannock Chase in the UK, which he called "a definitive window area" for paranormal activity. According to him, the area has been the site of UFO reports, abductions, and alien contact encounters as well as an abundance of sightings of "big cats" and "ghostly black dogs." Furthermore, Redfern revealed that, in 2007, several credible witnesses reported seeing a werewolf-like creature near an old cemetery in the woods. Appearing at first to merely be a large, out of place wolf, Redfern said that witnesses who glimpsed the creature reported that, once the beast saw them, "it would rise up onto its hind legs" and swiftly run off into the forest on two feet.

Proposition 37

During the first hour, leading spokesperson on the health dangers of genetically modified foods, Jeffrey Smith, discussed Proposition 37, a California initiative which would require the labeling of GMO foods. He contended that, as the election draws closer, the forces against Prop 37 are "spending more than a million dollars a day in blatant lies on TV and radio." Additionally, Smith lamented that these distortions are now being repeated by newspapers throughout California. One popular argument against Prop 37, that Smith dismissed, was that the bill would cost the average consumer between $400 and $1,000. On the contrary, he said, the actual cost would actually be a mere 73 cents.
