The 500,000km square stretch in the North Atlantic Ocean has been blamed for the disappearance of at least 75 planes and hundreds of ships over the centuries.

Experts believe mysterious aluminum object dating back 250,000 years 'could be ancient UFO technology'

The aluminium piece looks as if it was a handmade object .
A piece of aluminum that looks as if it was handmade is being hailed as 250,000-year-old proof that aliens once visited Earth.

Metallic aluminum was not really produced by mankind until around 200 years ago, so the discovery of the large chunk that could be up to 250,000 years old is being held as a sensational find.

The details of the discovery were never made public at the time because it was pulled out of the earth in communist Romania in 1973.

Builders working on the shores of the Mures River not far from the central Romanian town of Aiud found three objects 10 metres (33 feet) under the ground.

Why monsters sit on your chest and try to strangle you

Brazilians speak in hushed tones about an ugly monster - sometimes a giant man, sometimes an old hag, sometimes a scary demon - that sneaks into bedrooms while they're sleeping, sits on their chests and presses down on their throats so that they wake up gasping for breath and unable to move. It turns out versions of the same tale are told in many countries by many cultures about many monsters. While science has not developed a get-this-monster-off-of-my-chest cure, it has come up with an explanation for them.

A depiction of a Pisadeira
In Brazil, the monster is called Pisadeira and is most often described as an old hag with long fingers who jumps down from roofs onto the chests of unsuspecting sleepers. In Portugal, Pisadeira is sometimes depicted as old man (sadly, a Friar) and occasionally sits on the full belly of children rather than on their chests. In Spain, it's a large black dog or cat. The indigenous people of Canada believe the creature is a shapeless demon created by an evil shaman. Nigerians describe it as a scary old woman while the Japanese say it's a male spirit trying to suffocate his enemies. In Cambodia, it's a "khmaoch sângkât" - "the ghost that pushes you down." Victims all say they can see the monster or spirit but can't move or breath until it finally goes away.

Unseen foes: Hostile contact with non-human entities

To call them ufonauts would evoke unwanted associations with the long-haired, blonde entities of the Adamskian tradition or the Greys that peppered UFO research in the 1990s. In some cases there is no structured craft suggesting an interplanetary origin or even a actinic light that conjures up a paranormal provenance. "Things" appear to unchain a series of events in unsuspecting communities having absolutely no interest in matters involving ufology or even the human space age, now receding into the past as civilization chooses to journey inward.

Time and distance separate us from some of these events in such a way that it is quite understandable how contemporary researchers would feel more comfortable dismissing them as rumor, journalistic exaggeration or outright hoax. Publishing pictures of lights in the sky is far more satisfying, of course.

Nevertheless, I feel these cases deserve their day in court, despite the inability to put the events -- or their witnesses -- on the stand.

The baffled woman claims her recording equipment became jammed after she tried to capture the strange 'humming' phenomenon on video

A UFO enthusiast claims a strange multi-coloured light 'broke' her video camera as she tried to record it hovering over her house.

The woman, who reveals on her YouTube channel that her name is Melody, describes multi-coloured ball of light, that appear to be chasing an orange 'orb'. At several points throughout the footage, the mysterious ball appears to change from red to blue to green, but that wasn't the strangest thing she noticed.

In the video, Melody says: "There is a humming noise coming from this craft. "We're not sure if it's a form of military helicopter that was investigating that orange glowing ball, or was it some, UFO, perhaps an alien spacecraft? "As I came out to film it, our camcorder began to malfunction."

Possessed politicians? A brief historical look at exorcism and demonic possession

Jesus exorcising a boy possessed by a demon. From Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry, 15th century
At a recent Hillary Clinton campaign rally on Tuesday, October 11, President Obama took the opportunity to address some grave accusations waged against both himself and Hillary Clinton as of late, namely that they are demons. In reaction to a comment by radio host Alex Jones, who said the president smelled of sulfur, Obama playfully took a sniff of his own shirt sleeve and declared that he did not, in fact, agree with that assertion.

The accusation of demon possession has a long history within early Christian literature and liturgy - even if demon possession seems only the stuff of horror movies today.

For hundreds of years, demons were seen by early Christians as one of the main causes of disease. Consequently, demon possession and one of its cures, exorcism, were accepted parts of healing in the later Roman empire into the middle ages. A number of early Christian authors point to demons as the spreaders of sickness. In the third century, the writer Tertullian's Apology (22) even notes that such demons inflict "sickness and other grievous calamities upon our bodies." He also alleged that demons specifically taught women to use magical herbs. As Nicole Kelley, a professor of Religion at Florida State University has argued, demons were one way for early Christians to explain epilepsy and other sicknesses. Demonic thoughts could also creep in and cause havoc. The monk Evagrius Ponticus (345-399 CE) proposed eight cardinal demonic thoughts: gluttony, lust, greed, anger, sadness, acedia (sloth), vainglory, and pride. These eight would later be reworked as the seven deadly sins, as further developed by thinkers such as a monk named John Cassian and then Pope Gregory the Great.

Comment: The author is correct; historical misogyny in the form of accusations of demonic possession/evil is nothing new. For an in-depth discussion of these types of accusations as they relate to several other important historical issues, read: Witches, Comets and Planetary Cataclysms. (you'll be happy you did!)

UFOs over Charlotte? Strange lights appear in sky over North Carolina (VIDEO)

Video taken by C. Hulbert from near Le Meridien Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 15th, appears to show multiple flashing lights high in the sky above the city:

Previously-declassified British UFO archives RECLASSIFIED as Pentagon takes over UK's 'X-Files'

Long-buried files about UFO activity in the UK have been sent back to the National Archives for further censorship, despite assurances they would be released.

Authorities claim extra sanitization was needed after they noticed sensitive material had been missed which did not have a Freedom of Information (FoI) exemption - meaning it could not be released to the waiting public.

A spokesman for the National Archives told German paranormal website Grenzwissenschaft-Aktuell that:
"The National Archives (TNA) and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) had agreed a timetable for the release of these records which would have made the records available for the public at TNA this autumn.

Unfortunately, following the transfer of files to TNA in June, additional information which is covered by FoI exemption was identified, resulting in the files being returned to the MoD in August.

"This has delayed the release of these files. The MoD are now ensuring that all information that is covered by an exemption is identified."
