Life after death: Man’s ‘surreal experience’ of leaving world in his ‘spirit body’ exposed

“I could feel everything but had no sensation of pain; it was such as a pleasant feeling but very surreal.

“I wasn’t afraid at all and almost didn’t want to leave, but I felt like it wasn’t my time and wanted to go back to my body.”

Dave was eventually revived and awoke to a group of medics standing over him.

The experience, he said, has strengthened his belief life goes on after death.

Most medical experts, however, do not consider NDEs to be genuine instances of a person dying.

Alien on Mars: Conspiracy theorists spot ‘fossilised fish’ on Red Planet

Conspiracy theorists were sent into a frenzy when they believe they spotted a mudskipper fish – an amphibious fish which, as the name suggests, live in bodies of muddy water – on Mars. Not only does this suggest Mars was once inhabited by animals, but also that it contained large bodies of water, according to ET enthusiasts.

Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring made the bizarre claim on his blog ET Data Base.

He said: “I found this mud skipper fish in one of the Mars Gigapan photos today.

“The mudskipper is a fish that often chooses to live on land, mud, rocks and sand, but when startled it flips in the air and dives into the nearest water area for safety. This looks like an ancient fossil of just such a fish.

“This fossil is absolute proof that large bodies of water did once exist on Mars.

However, sceptics and NASA would say the ‘fish’ and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.

NASA said: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognisable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.

“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”

Another recent finding which supposedly supports the argument of life on Mars was that of a supposed statue of a Martian god.

The apparent statue is found enclosed between the bottom of two Martian cliffs, with Mr Waring claiming it is made out of copper or a “golden metal”.

New York Man Fakes Death To Avoid Jail But Typo Gives Him Away

NEW YORK (AP) — A Long Island criminal defendant tried faking his death to avoid a jail sentence, but the phony death certificate his lawyer submitted had a glaring spelling error that made it a dead giveaway for a fraud, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Robert Berger, 25, of Huntington, New York, now faces up to four years in prison if convicted in the alleged scheme. That’s in addition to pending sentences for earlier guilty pleas to charges of possession of a stolen Lexus and attempted grand larceny of a truck — punishment prosecutors say he was looking to avoid.

“It will never cease to amaze me the lengths some people will go to to avoid being held accountable on criminal charges,” Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said in a telephone interview.

Arraigned by video Tuesday because of the coronavirus pandemic, Berger pleaded not guilty to a single count of offering a false instrument for filing. A judge set bail at $1 but ordered Berger back to jail because of his underlying cases. His next court date is scheduled for July 29.

A message seeking comment was left with a public defender who took over Berger’s case after the lawyer who submitted the suspicious death certificate claimed he’d been used as a pawn and had nothing to do with the alleged shenanigans.

Scheduled to be sentenced to a year in jail last October on the theft-related charges, Berger fled the state, while taking steps to convince his then-lawyer, prosecutors and the judge that he had killed himself — including allegedly using his fiance to pass along a bogus death certificate, prosecutors said.

At first glance, Berger’s purported death certificate looked like an official document issued by the New Jersey Department of Health, Vital Statistics and Registry, but there was one big problem: Registry was spelled “Regsitry,” prosecutors said. There were also inconsistencies in the font type and size that raised suspicions, they said.

The real New Jersey Department of Health, Vital Statistics and Registry confirmed that Berger’s death certificate was a fake, prosecutors said.

Berger was alive, but not entirely well. While supposedly dead, he’d been arrested in suburban Philadelphia on charges including allegations he provided a false identity to law enforcement and stole from a Catholic college. He was sentenced in January to up to a year in jail, according to Pennsylvania court records.

Berger’s case was reminiscent of one six years ago in which a former Coast Guard petty officer-turned-shoe salesman posed as a former military lawyer, soliciting clients and appearing in court. That man, Kenneth Goldstein, was outed as a fraud when he started rambling in an un-lawyerlike fashion in a Long Island courtroom.

“You’re gonna get caught,” Singas said. “We say it all the time. Crime doesn’t pay. We’ll catch up with you eventually. In this case, it’s never a good idea to submit phony documents to the district attorney. We were able to make sure that he wasn’t able to get away with it.”

Alien news: Shape-shifting UFO seen over Rio de Janeiro – claim

An object in the sky appeared to change shape midstream, shifting from a five-pointed star to a pyramid in a matter of seconds. The person filming the footage, over Rio de Janeiro, had to double-take as the object appeared to change, even wiping the camera lens at one point to make sure there were no faults and to ensure the she was seeing was real.

Conspiracy theorists were quick to jump to explanations, stating it must be an extraterrestrial UFO.

Self-proclaimed alien expert Scott C Waring has analysed the footage and believes it is genuine proof of extraterrestrials here on Earth.

Mr Waring wrote on his blog ET Data Base: “This UFO was recorded over Rio De Janeiro. It was reported in July 19, but was recorded May 7, 2020.

“The UFO is clearly a geometric shape, but that shape changes within seconds. I see a five sided star, and then seconds later it has become a pyramid!

“Remarkable and bizarre and yet it’s real raw footage. The shape shifting cannot be explained in any terms.

“At one point even the woman seemed to wipe off the lens of the camera to make sure it was seeing what was in the sky.”

While the existence of aliens has never been confirmed, the US’ Department of Defense has recently acknowledged a video from a US Navy pilot’s radar footage of a mystery UFO with “glowing aura” and flying erratically.

The video first circulated back in 2017, but it took the DoD three years to acknowledge the video’s existence.

According to Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough, the sighting was released “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos”.

She said: “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”

When the 2017 footage emerged, a former Pentagon employee Luis Elizondo, who headed up a secret official UFO program, said it was “compelling evidence” we might not be alone in the universe.

Mr Elizondo said: “These aircraft – we’ll call them aircraft – are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.

“Things that don’t have any obvious flight services, any obvious forms of propulsion, and manoeuvring in ways that include extreme manoeuvrability beyond, I would submit, the healthy G-forces of a human or anything biological.”

Near death experience: ‘I went to a place where I had no body’ Claims of the afterlife

The person who only gives Gary as his name came close to death after suffering from a large Saddle Pulmonary Embolism (blood clot) between the lungs and the heart. During his brush with death, Gary said he was transported to a place where he was no longer in his body.

This place was like outer space but packed with some wild hallucinations. Writing on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Gary said: “I went to a place where I had no body and drifted in space above a hard flat surface.

“I was a long way off the ground. I was drifting while being suspended but still wide awake and very aware of my surroundings.

“I was above a sky filled with individually coloured drops like the candy of liquorice or differently coloured candies with chocolate inside.

“There were millions and millions of them coming from the right to the left above me and filling the sky. Actually, they were the sky.

“Although I was far above, I could see each one individually as they were pushed or making their way across the sky. I could have watched them for hours and hours.

“I could move by just thinking about being somewhere different. The chocolate multi-coloured drops were moving to a point in the sky where they were falling down, like a waterfall.

“They were dropping from a long way up as a wall of multicoloured drops falling into into a large gap in the ground below me.

“I moved closer to the edge of the gap and peered over the edge.

Video shows the horrendous amount of droplets we spew out when we don’t wear masks

Researchers filmed the droplets produced when people talk, sneeze, and cough. Masks blocked a significant amount of droplets from escaping into the air.

The results, recently published in the medical journal Thorax, underscore the critical importance of wearing masks amid a newly emerged pathogenic virus that spreads mostly by airborne transmission between people.

‘Serial’ team’s new podcast spotlights the anti-racist work that needs to be done

If the title of Serial Productions’ new podcast makes you uncomfortable, good. That’s the point. 

It’s emblematic of what makes Nice White Parents such a powerful, vital example of the anti-racist work white Americans need to be doing right now if we have any hope of even beginning to make good on our recent promises to support the equality of Black lives.

Nice White Parents, released on July 30, is a five-part limited series from the team that redefined podcasting back in 2014. Instead of complex true-crime cases, however, Nice White Parents puts a different criminal on trial: the white liberalism that has helped perpetuate the segregation of public schools in America for decades under the guise of progressive ideals.

The path to upholding white supremacy can be paved with good intentions, especially when it comes to unwitting white parents.

This American Life alum Chana Joffe-Walt tells the story through an on-the-ground investigation into the School for International Studies (SIS), a New York City public school that was predominantly serving students of color. That is, until a flood of white parents who couldn’t get their kids into preferred white schools instead decided to enroll them there,  causing it to become a battleground of racial tensions and inequalities. It’s a story that comes from a personal place for Joffe-Walt. She began reporting on it after shopping around for schools as a new parent herself, only to discover she was part of a larger history of white parents who have shaped our public school education system into what it is today — which is to say, a system that overwhelmingly and repeatedly fails students of color. 

On its face, the integration of white kids into an underfunded school of mostly Black and brown kids might sound like progress. In reality, the podcast reveals, the path to upholding white supremacy can be paved with good intentions, especially when it comes to unwitting white parents just trying to do what’s best for their kids.

Quickly, Nice White Parents shows that, rather than making schools better for the Black and brown families they integrate with, influxes of white families basically do the public school equivalent of gentrification. They come into underserved communities of color and capitalize on the opportunities those underprivileged communities can’t, all while promising that the wealth and resources they bring will improve life for everyone. Instead, the wealth and resources white folks bring into these public schools only displaces the underserved communities that were there before them, replacing what they built with whatever serves the needs and desires of the white families. 

For example, in the case of SIS, a white father new to the school offered to use his skills as a non-profit fundraiser to bring more donations into the school than the PTA could’ve ever dreamed of before. But what was sold as a golden opportunity for all soon leads to racial disparity and divides. He creates a fundraising group separate from the PTA, which was predominantly led by Black and brown parents. That new group of white parents then gets sole control over where those funds get allocated, putting a lot of it toward a bilingual program for French. It’s a decision that flies in the face of the needs and preferences of the PTA parents and their students of color, many of whom come from households that would benefit much more from an Arabic or Spanish language program.

Like all of Serial Production’s podcasts, from its flagship season on Adnan Syed to S-Town, Nice White Parents zooms in on the specificity of a single case only to reveal how it’s part of a larger pattern of national (if not universal) importance. It doesn’t matter if you don’t live in New York, don’t have kids, don’t attend public schools. If you’re a white American, the problems raised by Nice White Parents are your problems. Like so many other issues of race in this country, they won’t get fixed until white people do the uncomfortable work of recognizing our role in creating the problem, and consequently taking responsibility as the only people who can fix said problems.

The two episodes of Nice White Parents we received early access to expose facts I can’t believe I hadn’t known before. New York City, for example — both the symbol of America as a diverse melting pot and as a bastion of white coastal elitism — has one of the most segregated public education systems in the country. If you’re an underprivileged person of color living there, you probably already knew that. If you’re white, you probably had the privilege of not knowing or reckoning with the enormous consequences of this racial disparity. 

Joffe-Walt has been reporting on the failures of the American public school system for years. But the cutting poignancy of Nice White Parents lies in how she owns her personal role — along those of with other well-intentioned, often liberal white parents — who have perpetuated the segregation of schools for so long after the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional. 

What’s happening at SIS now isn’t new, but rather history repeating itself. Back when Brown v Board of Education outlawed school segregation, a rash of white parents sent letters demanding the new integrated school of SIS be built closer to their white neighborhoods so they could send their kids there. So it was. The problem was that none of those progressive white parents supportive of racial integration actually ended up sending their kids to SIS. Their performative allyship instead only succeeded in moving the school further away from the predominantly Black and brown communities that did attend the school.

Nice White Parents reveals the uncomfortable truth that, both then and now, white supremacy is very often not cloaked in a white hood. It can be cloaked in virtue signaling and white saviorism that’s harder to identify, particularly when it comes to the desegregation of public schools.

Here’s how it happens: Parents from a racial majority understandably always want their kids to benefit from every possible privilege they can afford. But those privileges are also the benefits inherited from white supremacist structures. So even the nicest white parents, the ones most vocally opposed to racism, keep taking advantage of those systems that give their kids a leg up, all while robbing Black and brown kids of those opportunities.

White supremacy today is not always communicated through the explicit terms of white power, either. Rather, it’s left implied through far more subtle language, like a wealthy French donor explaining that he wants to invest in SIS’s French-language program because he believes French culture will be spread across the world to those who’ve never encountered it before via “soft power” initiatives like this.

Today, segregation gets to hide behind white liberal evasion.

Ironically, though, none of the white parents or liberal donors at SIS who are repeating the same mistakes of the past are at all educated or even aware of the racist history they’re perpetuating.

In some ways, the segregation caused by nice, progressive white parents is more insidious than the racial segregation of public schools that came from outright bigotry and racism. At least before, the phenomenon of white parents protecting their children’s privileges at the cost of everyone else in American society was called by its proper name. 

Today, segregation gets to hide behind white liberal evasion. Mayor Bill de Blasio, for one, blames  housing issues for the racial inequalities of New York’s public schools, placating concerns over it with a “diversity task force.” But how could his task force fix a problem he refuses to call by name (segregation), caused by something he’s even less willing to recognize (white supremacy)? When pressed about his refusal to say the word “segregation” by a reporter during a press conference excerpted on the podcast, de Blasio dismisses the criticism as him not wanting to “get lost in the terminology.” 

But whatever terms we use, the same harm is being done to underprivileged families of color. Only now they have to deal with the racial gaslighting of folks refusing to recognize that racism is, in fact, what’s happening.

When the issues of segregation in public schools are pointed out to white people — particularly white parents — they blame forces larger than themselves, pointing to inherited issues that aren’t their individual fault or aren’t within their power to fix. It’s a sneaky way to pass the buck to Black and brown people instead, asking them to fix issues of race-based poverty, housing inequity, and lack of school funding, despite all of them being directly inherited from that same history of slavery, immigration, and white supremacy they also certainly did not create nor have the power to dismantle.

Recent Black Lives Matter uprisings seem to have finally gotten allies to understand that the work of dismantling white supremacy needs to start at home, where we must confront embedded racism not only within ourselves but also the families that raised us. 

The necessary tension Nice White Parents forces you to sit with is the fact that the fight for equality isn’t just about personal sacrifice or labor. It requires an even more fundamental evolution away from the tribalism of individual family legacy, and toward a worldview that values our larger human family as much as our immediate flesh and blood.

The first couple episodes focus on identifying the pattern and history of public school segregation rather than offering any solutions. But in a meta way, the uneasy labor of this podcast is precisely the first step that needs to happen, not only to fix school segregation but for so many of the issues caused by systemic racism in America.

People like to say that racism is taught, learned behavior rather than instinctual. Well, this is how it’s taught. It’s not just openly racist white parents teaching their kids that whiteness is better. It’s the far more subtle and wordless behaviors of an education system that values whiteness over all else, and encourages white kids to take up all the resources and space previously given to Black and brown kids. Meanwhile, those Black and brown children are taught that their cultures and communities are inferior and expendable, forcing them to take up less space if they want to continue to participate in our public education system.

When it comes to kids, we’re not only talking about the next generation who will make up the future of our society. Because when we look ahead at our children’s imagined futures, we’re also in conversation with our own past: what we wish we’d grown up with, what we promised we’d do better when we became parents ourselves. Kids are our legacy and, as such, kids are where we lay down the groundwork that continues the deep-seated racism that has always defined America’s past, present, and future — until white people actually start doing something about it, that is.

When white parents look at their kids, they get to see all the opportunities that lie ahead of them in a world systemically built for their success. But the futures of Black and brown kids are marred by the visible and invisible forces of racism that try to rob them of opportunity, hope, and sometimes their very lives.

Surprisingly, perhaps no one has highlighted the power and importance of Nice White Parents more than Fox News, which reported on the conservative backlash triggered by a mere three-minute preview clip of the podcast.

“Everything has to be a race war,” said Fox News pundit Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, coming to the defense of those nice white parents being “blamed” for racism. “But this really upsets me.”

Good, Karen. It should upset you. The realization that you are the driving force behind white supremacy should terrify and upset us all. So sit with those feelings of being unsettled, upset. Then go do something about it or shut the hell up.

Nice White Parents is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google.

GIANT alien spotted in Antarctica with entrance into mountains – claim

The existence of continues to be debated, but one conspiracy theorist believes he has the proof. Said ‘proof’ comes in the form of an apparent alien giant found on the slopes in Antarctica using Google Earth.

Near to the apparent giant is what appears to be a doorway, which according to prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring is 22 metres high “that seems to fit well”.

Mr Waring wrote on his blog ET Database: “I found a giant figure in Antarctica today and its not far from a giant entrance to a cave opening.

“Now Google ruler says this figure is 20 metres tall. Google ruler also says the entrance to the cave is 22 metres tall.

“That seems to fit well. Now a 20 metre tall alien would surprise a lot of people, but honestly what does size have to do with intelligence?

“Nothing I would think. Reports of aliens 4-5 metres tall have come out of Russia in the past and giant skeletons of human like creatures have been found many times.

“This photo was taken by a satellite, an object with no bias, no agenda, no care except to record what it sees.”

However, sceptics and NASA say the structure and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes where they do not exist.

This would mean the ‘giant’ and ‘doorway’ are just rocks or marks on the snow.

NASA said: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognisable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.

“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”

Mr Waring has argued humanity has the strength to deal with such a shocking alien revelation if NASA were to admit it.

He said: “Much like COVID-19 did to the people in each country as it spread, because the public once believed that such a pandemic would be impossible, and yet, the human race has changed their perspective on that very fast.

“That’s how disclosure of intelligent aliens would be, but it would not kill people or frighten them as much.”

UFO sighting: Chilling video shows bell-like UFO hovering in sky that ‘looks 100% real’

Conspiracy theorists maintain the weapon was developed in occupied Poland and the technology was later captured by the US.

However, the story has been debunked multiple times as pseudoscientific rumours or an outright hoax.

Brian Dunning, the host of the Skeptoid Podcast, wrote in his book Conspiracies Declassified Die Glocke has “no historical basis at all – outside of esoteric fiction”.

But what about the Lausanne UFO sighting? If the video footage is genuine, it is most likely a case of pareidolia.

Pareidolia is a bizarre effect that causes the brain to see recognisable shapes and patterns where they do not exist.

End of the world: Hidden Bible code ‘prophesying COVID-19 after bat meat warning’ exposed

The Bible code, also known as the Torah code, is an alleged set of encoded-words hidden within the Hebrew text of the Torah, that according to its proponents, have seemingly predicted significant historical events including the election of US President Donald Trump. Christianity and Judaism share the first five books of the Bible, which also make up the Torah – known as the five books of Moses, and a number of rabbis, priests, mathematicians and professors have claimed within the original Hebrew versions of these sacred texts are secret messages left by God. The hidden code is said to have been cracked centuries ago by mathematically selecting letters from the texts which appear to create words, but was populated by the documentary ‘The Torah Codes: End to Darkness’ by filmmaker Richard Shaw in 2015.

{%=o.title%}

Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson – who featured in Mr Shaw’s film – continues to study the so-called code, regularly uploading his findings to YouTube which appear to offer insight into world events.

In January he claimed coronavirus can be found in the Torah by using the Bible codes.

Pointing out numerous news stories discussing the coronavirus outbreak originating from China’s markets – which were reported to have included everything from rats, snakes, bats and pangolins – Rabbi Glazerson revealed an excerpt from the Book of Leviticus that spoke about the importance of not eating these meats as they are “impure”.

He highlighted consistent letters highlighted equidistant from one another in the text  – something known as the Equidistant Letter Sequence (ELS) on which Bible codes scholars heavily rely.

This ELS contains the Hebrew letters “kuf, reish, vav, nun” – meaning corona. 

He also points out other highlighted ELS instances in the same section. 

One spells out “vav, yud, reish, vav and samech” which is virus. 

The other spells out “alef, bet, reish, mem, het and yud,” which spells out the phrase “eiver mehai,” or limb from the living. 

In another part of the excerpt, he highlights the letters “samech, yud, nun and yud,” which translates to Chinese.

He exclaimed: ”You have it exactly in the section of the Torah that says things you should not eat.

“I separated for you the impure things, then you will be for Me a holy people.

“It’s amazing finding this, coronavirus, China and the limb from the living, which causes what we see now.”

Later that month, the Rabbi went one step further.

He explained that he had apparently discovered that the texts contain the phrases “Iran Atomic” and this year – which in the traditional Hebrew calendar is 5780.

Rabbi Glazerson then claimed that the end times are predicted for 2021, adding that the prophecy can also be found in the Book of Leviticus.

He said in January: “It is a very interesting and significant table.

“Hoping we will soon have Messiah coming and he will finish and burn out the enemies of Israel.

“And then peace and quiet will come to the whole world.”

Researchers have been using a special programme called SofSofTorah to trawl through the pages of the holy book for some time now.

They claim this is helping them piece together information and prophecies being delivered to them from God.

It was developed by Dr Alexander Roetenburg, who has a PhD in mathematics, and computer scientist Professor Robert Haralick.

Using this piece of software, analysts have been able to trawl through the ancient texts and present their findings from the so-called code.

Judaism’s end of days heralds the coming of the Jewish Messiah ushering in the kingdom of God who will apparently rule during the Messianic Age which will see the end of the world as we know it.

Rabbi Glazerson believes the current end of days process began in 2016 – and will end in 2021.

Dr Eliyahu Rips, a Torah codes researcher who became the first to use computers, previously said: “We cannot pretend that we have a full grasp of it but using the means at our disposal we can see it is real.”

His team published a paper on their findings as researchers continue to produce a steady stream of reported predictions and links the world events.

Codes are said to be found in the Torah in diagonal strips across the text, or in columns in the original Hebrew.

Software is used to make the study of these easier, with all of Rabbi Glazerson’s findings being presented on a computerised version of the Torah.

The primary objection against Bible codes is that information theory does not prohibit “noise” from appearing to be sometimes meaningful. 

If data chosen for ELS experiments are intentionally or unintentionally “cooked” before the experiment is defined, similar patterns can be found in texts other than the Torah. 

Although the probability of an ELS in a random place being a meaningful word is small, there are so many possible starting points and skip patterns that many such words can be expected to appear.

Critics add that it is also possible to “tune” an ELS experiment to achieve a result which appears to exhibit patterns that overcome the level of noise.
