'High Voltage Humans,' the Shroud of Turin, and a possible secret space program were among the fascinating topics explored this past week on Coast to Coast AM. And, here at the C2C website, we told you about another remarkable revelation concerning UFOs from the Pentagon, a bizarre form of 'monster bait' being used at Loch Ness, and a huge gold nugget worth a small fortune that was discovered by a man in Australia. Check out our round-up of highlights from the past week ... In Coast You Missed It.
One of the most vigorously debated mysteries in the history of paranormal lore surrounds the controversial Shroud of Turin and whether or not it truly features a supernatural depiction of Jesus Christ. On Tuesday night's program, author Barrie Schwortz revisited the history of this iconic esoteric enigma and provided some first-hand perspective on the case thanks to his role as the official photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project. Having personally examined the cryptic cloth, he concluded that it could not have been a painting nor a photograph.
This past week featured tales of treasures both discovered and yet to be found. First, an Australian man armed with a metal detector unearthed a massive gold nugget weighing a whopping three pounds and worth nearly $70,000. Meanwhile, a company in Canada launched an ambitious treasure hunt in which three cases worth $100,000 dollars have been hidden in three of the country's major cities. Starting on June 1st, Canadian residents hoping to find the riches can purchase sets of clues from the group which, if solved, point in the direction of the treasure.
Can the human body cause electrical disturbances? This intriguing question was explored on Saturday night's program when paranormal researcher CJ Romer discussed the phenomenon of 'high voltage people.' These individuals' strange 'ability,' he explained, can manifest in various ways such as a person possessing a high level of static electricity around them or having an inexplicable effect on nearby appliances. One particularly prevalent type of event occurs when they approach a streetlight and somehow cause it to flicker on and off.
Mysterious sea creatures popped up in the news this past week in a pair of decidedly different stories. First, it came to light that German tourists visiting Loch Ness have taken to tossing candy into the water to entice the legendary 'monster' said to reside there. The source for this strange behavior? A TV commercial from their home country. Meanwhile, on our side of the Atlantic, a Canadian woman walking along the shore of Shuswap Lake in British Columbia, Canada captured footage of an odd anomaly emerging from the water that may have been 'Shuswaggi,' a fairly obscure aquatic cryptid that some believe lives in the area.
In both the UFO research world as well as the conspiracy theory community, there have long been rumors and speculation that there could be a clandestine space program secretly ferrying human out into the cosmos. Dr. Michael Salla explored this possibility on Monday night's program, detailing curious cases of odd craft and strange government activities which could be clues that such projects exist. In fact, based on his research, he postulated that "there are several million people on Mars" as part of a breakaway civilization that left the planet by way of secret space travel technology.
The latest development in the quest to get answers about UFOs from the government saw a rather remarkable turn of events week when the Pentagon conceded that they do, indeed, have an interest in 'unidentified aerial phenomena.' Although this has been largely assumed by UFO researchers for years and past government programs looking into the enigma are known to have existed, the confirmation from the DoD that they have investigated the phenomenon in recent years was heralded by many as another sign that the 'powers that be' could be gearing up to finally shares some answers about the topic.
