The 12 Best "Ancient Aliens" Memes on the Internet

In the world of memes, there may be none whose hair lives in greater infamy than that of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, better known as "that Ancient Aliens guy!"

With his explosive bouffant 'do and ardent belief that ancient humans once interacted with alien astronauts, Tsoukalos has become an icon of memedom. Although Tsoukalos has appeared on multiple shows across multiple channels, was the consultant producer of 23 episodes of Ancient Aliens, and speaks five languages, he is most famously known for the History Channel still-frame of his emphatic upraised hands and righteously big hair:

And also, of course, for his simple but totally quotable meme catchphrase: “ALIENS.”

It’s no surprise, then, that a (probably) limitless number of Tsoukalos’ Ancient Aliens memes abound across the universe - I mean internet. As an homage to aliens, memes, Tsoukalos, and his hair, we’ve compiled 12 of the best Ancient Aliens-inspired memes for you to enjoy!

Written Confession: A Life of Paranormal Incidences

The following Confession was shared by via email:

Thought I'd let you know that I have had many "paranormal" things happen through out my life. It is a family trait and to me it is just normal life. Something needs to be truly remarkable to make it memorable.

My mother has had many psychic incidences during her life. One just happened to save my life when I was a toddler. 

We lived on an isolated farm that belonged to my father's parents, who also lived there but in another house. My father worked away. 

One day I began to choke. My mother couldn't fix it and didn't know what to do. It must of been quite bad because she grabbed me and rushed out to find my grandmother. When she was outside the garden gate she heard a voice in her head say words to the effect of "turn the child upside down". Which she did and whatever was stuck in my throat dislodged and I recovered. 

One time my when my eldest daughter was about 11 she woke up with a slight fever and felt unwell so I kept her home from school. An hour or so later I get a phone call from the school. They were concerned for my child, wanting to know if I'd taken her home. She had been seen at school that morning but vanished and they were very concerned. I told them she had not been to school and was home sick but they insisted she had been there. That evening there was an event on at the school that my daughter's class was involved in and because she had recovered we went to it. As we arrived one of her friends rushed up to her asking why she had vanished from school that morning. This other kid was adamant that my daughter had been there. This confirmed it to me that the school phone call had been valid.  I know of a phenomenon called "bi-location" and put the incident down to a case of this. I told my daughter that's what it was, no big deal. 

I have many stories, many more are forgotten. I've seen odd lights in the sky, had many out of body / astral events and encounters. Had a dark entity come into a house I was living in. (I'd never believed in them before or been scared like that).

I've had so many dreams that later came true. When I was young I was able to see what people where thinking, I could see thoughts forming. One very famous person - example happened when I was 15 and it bothered me so much it put me off ever wanting that to happen again. It was a member of the British royal family who'd just had a baby.

Demonic Possession is Real and On the Rise

Many people may be familiar with one of the most iconically frightening movies in film history: The Exorcist. The film features demonic possession, exorcism, and frame after frame of terrifying images. After watching (if you dare to watch!) you may be left disturbed, scared, or horrified. But the good news is, that movie is just a fake, made-up Hollywood plot! Right?

Not quite. Many people, of multiple faiths, believe demonic possession IS a real occurrence - and alarmingly, it is also apparently on the rise. 

Reportedly, over the last decade the U.S. has seen an increase in the demand for priest-led exorcisms, leaping from 12 to over 50. An exorcism training course held by the Vatican blames the increase in demonic possession on a decline in Christian faith and the internet for providing easy access to black magic, the occult and Satanism. 

With demonic possession becoming so prevalent in modern day, why does it still seem taboo to believe in such spiritual activity? Why do we not start looking beyond the curtain of Hollywood movie  sensationalism and take the subject more seriously? 

Because, according to Dr. Richard Gallagher, a private psychiatrist and a professor at New York Medical College and Columbia University, demonic possession is often treated as or confused with mental illness. Many medical professionals are hesitant to treat or evaluate for “possession” - a fact that needs to change if for the demonically possessed are to receive the proper help for their serious affliction. 

Read more about Dr. Gallagher’s insights and case studies about demonic possession here: www.yahoo.com/news/apos-demonic-possession-real-victims-081531844.html

Not included in Dr. Gallagher’s observations but something perhaps worth noting is the recent rise in teenage mental illness, which has also been attributed in part to internet activity: 

“In surveys of over five hundred thousand American adolescents, psychologist Jean Twenge and her colleagues found that adolescents, especially girls, who spent more time on screen activities (smartphones, Internet, and social media) were significantly more likely to have symptoms of depression and suicidal ideation than those who spent their time on non-screen activities...” (Read the full article here: www.google.com/amp/s/www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-personal-renaissance/201801/the-alarming-rise-in-teen-mental-illness%3famp.)

Two questions come to mind: 1) How much has the internet taken over our minds (and spirits)? And 2) Could there be any overlap or relation between the noted increases in these two urgent problems? 

Mental illness is real and serious. Demonic possession is also real and serious. It may be time to consider, as Dr. Gallagher does, how to equip mental health professionals to offer treatment for afflictions of both the mind and of the spirit in order to better aid those who may be suffering in the mind, or the spirit, or both.

Making It Rain: How Scientists in the '50s May Have Inadvertently Killed 35 People

In August 1952, the village of Lynmouth in Devon, Britain was struck by one of the worst floods the country has ever seen. Thirty-five people lost their lives when 90 million tons of water and thousands of tons of rocks battered the town. At the time, the disaster was classified as "the hand of God," and locals were left to clean up the very messy aftermath.

However, in the early 2000s - nearly 50 years after the devastating flood - intel emerged that suggests the disaster may have occurred at the hands of scientists rather than the hand of God. Declassified documents allege that the Royal Air Force staged cloud-seeding experiments in the Lynmouth area between 1949 and 1955, resulting in torrents of rain - and in 1952, 35 deaths. 

Although the RAF originally denied conducting any such weather-controlling experiments prior to 1954, Alan Yates, a senior lecturer at Cranfield College of Aeronautics and a glider pilot, claims the scientists asked him to assist them in a cloud-seeding project named Operation Cumulus. According to Yates, the project was successful in producing artificial rain, creating heavy downpours some 50 miles away from Devon. On the night of August 15, 1952, nine inches of rain fell in Lynmouth, swelling two rivers until they broke their banks and flooded the village.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

Or is it? While the Ministry of Defence claims there is no evidence that RAF scientists were responsible for initiating the Lynmouth floods, this is not the first time that "weather control" conspiracies have been theorized over. Governments have been implementing cloud-seeding for decades since the artificial rain-making method was discovered in 1946, and conspiracy theories about weather control have abounded for nearly as long. Although manipulating the weather sounds like a science fiction experiment, the declassified documents about Lynmouth's 1952 disaster suggest that weather manipulation is more science than fiction, and steadily continues to become a reality. As recently as May 2018, Forbes reported that China was launching a weather control initiative that would cover a land mass the size of Alaska.

With technological advances progressing on practically a daily basis, how far-fetched is it to believe that governments and other higher powers may have the ability, after more than 50 years of supposed experimentation, to alter weather? With recent meteorological disasters like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria laying waste to multiple countries in quick succession, at what point do we question whether such events are the results of the hand of God, or of the hands of government scientists playing God?

Tic Tac UFO Stalks U.S. Aircraft Carrier

The words "Supersonic," "UFO," and "Tic Tac" have probably never before been used in the same sentence. But according to the Pentagon, a supersonic UFO shaped like a Tic Tac stalked a U.S. aircraft carrier for days back in 2004, bringing these random words together in a strange but cohesive way!

In an alleged, leaked report written by the Pentagon, an "Anomalous Aerial Vehicle (AAV)" was seen on the radar of the USS Princeton, a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser, on multiple occasions, over several days. The report claims the anomalous object could hover in midair, make itself invisible, and move so fast that the USS Princeton crew originally thought they were encountering a ballistic missile.

The unidentified craft was described as "solid white, smooth, with no edges... uniformly colored with no nacelles, pylons or wings", and looked like "an elongated egg or Tic Tac." Based on its physical description and its aerial behavior, the AAV matches "no known aircraft or air vehicle currently in the inventory of the United States or any foreign nation."

So... to whom does this mysterious Tic Tac ship belong - and why are we only learning about it 14 years later?

The Ghost in the Basketball Machine

On May 30, 2018, the Philadelphia 76ers announced that they were investigating reports that their president of basketball operations, Bryan Colangelo, used several secret Twitter accounts to criticize the Sixers team, engage in debates with its staff, and release private player medical information. It's a discovery that's damaging to the Sixers team (and also to it's #1 fan, Tony Merkel!). If the reports are true, it's a strange, hurtful blow for one member of an organization's front office to deal against his own team.

Also strange is how Colangelo's alleged Twitter indiscretions were discovered: through A.I. No, not Sixers Hall-of-Famer Allen Iverson- the other A.I.: artificial intelligence.  The unnamed source who discovered the Twitter accounts claims to work in the artificial intelligence field and, after noticing a “bunch of weird tweets” aimed at the Sixers, utilized "an open-source data analysis tool to link five accounts through commonalities including similarities in who the accounts followed and linguistic quirks."  That sounds like a mouthful, but the premise is simple: a form of artificial intelligence used its robotic brain to analyze human behavior and start naming names. By comparing similar phrases, images, and topics tweeted by the various accounts, A.I. can almost definitively point its virtual finger at Colangelo as the Twitter account perpetrator.

While the use of A.I. is only a mentioned as a minor part of this breaking story, the implications could be major- namely by showing us 1) how artificial intelligence is already being used as a viable means of analyzing human behavior to identify the committer of a "crime" (Minority Report, anyone?), and 2) that we may never know if and when artificial intelligence is quietly running in the background, watching everything we do.

The news of Colangelo's reckless tweeting is the topic that's making waves throughout the NBA franchise, but how his secret tweets were discovered is something we should all take note of- and be conscious of as a "the future" of science fiction moves ever closer to the present!

Written Confession: My Husband Sees Demons

The following Confession was shared by Sherilyn N. via email:

I have a special husband who has the gift of seeing angels and demons. Unfortunately he mostly gets demons. It's taken me forever to type it out for him and I wanted to share it with you.

I'm going to write it from his point of view because it's much easier to explain. His name is Adriel.

Adriel

I was about 9 or 10 years old when I saw my first demon. It was nighttime and I wanted to sleep in my brother's room because I don't like to sleep in my room for some reason. My brother's and I would do that a lot for some reason; sleep in each others' rooms. My brother has a twin sized bed so we both were definitely not going to both fit which means I was sleeping on the floor next to the closet. Yep. Across the room there is a window; side note: we live in a two-story house with our rooms upstairs and parents' room is downstairs. In the middle of the night I "wake up" where it's not my body that's awake but more like an awareness that I'm "awake" and can see the entire room. It felt like it was my physical body but not really. I was sleeping on my side and lifted my head to look at my brother sleeping and wanted to see the rest of the room in this "state" of being when behind me I saw him. I knew it was a man because he had a more masculine face. He was crouched over looking at me from about a foot or so away so he wasn't crouching over me. He had his hands on his knees and had long sharp nails like the kind girls are doing today. It was dark so it was hard to see a lot of details but he had pants that looked like he pushed up or rolled up to his calves like capris, no shoes and I saw his toes had long nails like if they weren't being maintained for a while. He had a shirt that was kind of like a muscle shirt without sleeves and a little singed looking throughout, the pants also were in the same kind of condition. His skin was dark greenish like rotting flesh green and had something that looked like cracks. When I looked at his face he was looking straight at me and smiling like he was thinking "hi, I can see you" with his head tilted to the side. His face also had the same cracks as the rest of his body and his eyes were normal looking with the whites but the entire iris and pupil was just black. His teeth were sharp and he had spiky styled hair. I just stared at him with my mouth open and he just stared back unmoving for what felt like minutes but was probably 20 seconds. I had a feeling and slowly turned away from the demon towards the window where I saw a being jump through and land on his feet in front of the window. He was bright and I couldn't see his face like I wasn't allowed to see it. He wore a robe and was tall enough to almost graze the ceiling. He had sandals on (of course) and his skin was sort of translucent but I could tell it was skin. He stood there for only a moment and ran forward around the bed to where I was laying. He stood across from the demon who hadn't realized he was there yet. The demon acted like he knew the angel was there but he didn't really care much until he turned from me to actually look at the angel. The demon literally did a double take like if he knew who was there or which specific angel it was. The look on his face was surprise and terror at the realization. I don't know who it was. They had a brief stare down then the angel darted towards the demon. The angel placed one hand on the demon's forehead and the other hand on his chest and pushed him through the wall behind him. The both of them disappeared into the wall and I remember seeing the complete fear on the demon's face as he kind of tried to fight back but failed and they were gone.

THE NEXT DAY. I kid you not, in the morning I was sitting down in the kitchen eating cereal waiting for my dad to finish showering so he could take me to school. I was shoveling spoonfuls of cereal in my mouth when I looked up and there SHE was. I'll try to explain how the house looks like. There is a little hall leading to the kitchen which is really just the pantry on one side so it's not a huge hallway. If you're sitting where I was you can see straight down the "hall" to the front door and to the left there is the living room. The living room isn't visible from there because the pantry and kitchen wall are there. So the female demon was coming from the living room which is "behind" the wall of the pantry tip-toed like she didn't want to make any noise and walked right through the wall. I literally had a mouthful of cereal with my hand halfway going up when I looked up to see her doing to creeping. I stared at her with my mouth open and she was looking at me with a smile on her face like the one from last night while creeping. I blinked a couple times, swallowed my cereal and looked back down to just keep eating since it was gone. I had another spoonful in my mouth when I looked up and saw her sitting in the chair across from me. She had her elbows on the table and her chin propped up on her hands with the sharp-tooth smile still there. She was also sitting really weird in the seat like she was kneeling on it like some kids do, but I could see that her legs/feet were folded up on the back of the seat. I literally just stared at her and she stared back smiling before she disappeared. I put my spoon down and just yelled "Papiiiiiiii" for my dad. From what I remember was wearing rolled up pants like the other one and no top which is how I knew it was a girl. But it was weird because she didn't look like she was naked on top. I could tell she had bumps like breasts but no nipples to really seem like she was nude. Her skin was green-grey looking with the same burned cracks that the one last night had. She had no hair at all. Basically she looked exactly like the male demon (like twins or a couple) but was distinctly female with lighter skin.

Next one is quick and was at the same age, probably in the same year. I was outside by myself riding on my bike in the neighborhood, it was kind of close to sunset. I had accidentally run into a parked car and my bike was stuck so I was trying to pull it out. I looked up and saw a figure wearing a red cloak with the hood up. He had the cloak completely closed so I saw nothing of the body and nothing of the face. I stared at him for a couple of seconds when he just sunk down into the ground.

End

He has less detailed stories of more shadowy type stuff that are really short or sounds. He still sees them because a week ago he told me something was going "pst" at him from the kitchen and he could tell there was something out of the corner of his eye but when he turned to look he didn't see anything. If he turned away he could still see it from the corner of his eye. I won't be going in the kitchen by myself anymore. He has also told me about having various episodes of sleep paralysis which I think I have seen for myself. Sometimes I heard him breathing hard and making sounds like he's trying to speak and I wake him immediately to get him out of it.

That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed!

Tree-Throwing Bigfoot?

In this quick clip, oil workers have allegedly captured a large creature hurling an aspen tree from the edge of the woods. Because of the creature's appearance, wooded location, and show of physical strength, the video seems to naturally beg the question: "Is it Bigfoot?"

Skeptics will be quick to point out that this footage is characteristically blurry, like many Bigfoot sightings caught on film. But if it's legitimate evidence, then it's an awesome capture of the power and personality of an awesome cryptid!

So - is it Bigfoot? An angry, dextrous bear? Clever CGI? Check out the video below to draw your own conclusion, or click here to take a look at ThinkerThunker's extended analysis!

Guest Post: Michigan Dogman Goes for Children on Roof

This blog post has been shared with permission from Linda Godfrey. Her original posting is available on her blog site, Linda Godfrey's Blog. Thank you, Linda, for allowing The Confessionals to share this blog entry!

"In my previous blog post, I shared the encounter of a Michigan man who was confronted by a wolf-like creature sitting on the roof of his house, watching him. In the following report, we will see that it may not be any comfort to an eyewitness to be the one sitting on the roof, as dogmen don’t appear to see that amount of height as any barrier. Tina Cole gave permission to use her name and a sketch that she drew. In her own words, only slightly edited:

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 11.14.45 AM.png

''Bear with me here, because i’m trying to paint a mental picture for you:

I guess I should start by saying that the only people who know about this is my immediate family, my fiance (who’s encouraged me to contact you) and the person who witnessed this with me. This happened back in 2001. I was only 8 yrs. old at the time, my friend who was with me at the time was 7.

We were both very small.

I remember it was early August, and I lived/ live in a semi-inner city in Michigan, next to a very large park. At the time, my friend and I had decided it was a great idea to play in my very big back yard at night, because the neighbors had a bonfire going. It just barely lit that portion of my yard through a bunch of trees.

We had climbed onto the shed via the neighbor’s fence and a propped board. I mention this because it’s nearly impossible to climb to this day, being an adult. (I can send size comparison photos if you’d like. or a drawing if it would be easier.)

Anyway, we had our feet dangling off of the shed, with our backs facing toward the park. And without a word, my friend had jumped off of the highest part of our shed (which we were never able to do, I mean he practically flew) and headed straight for the house. After a long few seconds I turned around to see why he ran, and there was this thing.  It looked half dog and half human, there’s really no other way to describe it.

It had to have been over 8 ft. high (the height of the shed) and its reaching length was over 4 ft. Its ears alone had to have been a foot long, at least, and its eyes did that thing a cat’s eyes do when light reflects on them in the dark. Its hand was inches away from my ankle. Very, very hairy body. It was basically a dog. I don’t exactly remember the color of it, if it even had a color, but I do remember that whatever this was, was standing from the ground because we didn’t have a chain link fence, it was all parallel wood that you couldn’t stand on,) and it was MASSIVE. So tall that I could see [it] from its middle torso and up.  That was literally the fastest I’ve ever rolled away, I don’t even remember how I got down. Ran inside and told our parents. We had no idea what it was at the time so I vaguely remember telling my mom that there was a tall man outside with a very hairy arm and big ears.

All of the adults went outside really quick to check, but I guess they never found anything. To this day I’m still afraid of the fact that even if what I saw was a man in a VERY elaborate, A-movie horror costume, I was still almost abducted. Since then my mom has become a bit of a fanatic about it. Its caused me a lot of anxiety problems. My friend and I never mentioned it after that night, and we’ve since grown apart.

I’ve tried to get in contact with him so I could have some outside perspective and opinion, so I know I’m not crazy, but to no avail.

(Second letter, in answer to my questions)

I’m so incredibly sorry it has taken me so long to respond, I know you’re probably very busy and I don’t mean to waste your time. I can give you a pretty detailed sketch.

There are many woods where I’m from, I’m surrounded by a very large, heavily wooded park, along with woods directly in front of the house. However, it’s an urban area, so I think that’s one of the reasons I’m afraid to tell anyone, because it seems like the most unlikeliest of places for this to happen. Everything is pretty dilapidated. Buildings, railroads, actual roads, you name it. But no matter where you go, there a deer everywhere around my neighborhoods. It’s a huge problem.

You can absolutely share my encounter. I need people to know. No anonymity necessary.
As far as other details go I can tell you the color of the fur must have been some shade of brown, because it wasn’t immediately noticeable, but it wasn’t too dark to see the figure at night. And quiet. Everything was so quiet and it didn’t make any noise. The next I can do is send you this drawing, which I will do, and a photo of the shed for size comparison, if it helps. I mean, because describing it just isn’t enough.'

I’m not sure why Tina didn’t offer the name of the urban area where she was located (and evidently still lives).  She may not wish to have her home’s location made public, as is her right. I have two other quick comments about the creature reported. First, regarding its height of 8 1/2 feet, that is quite high compared to most estimates of dogman size, but not unheard of. It may have been that everything seems larger to a small child, but she still lives at the place and so is able to make her estimation of its height as a grown person, too.

I also thought about the fact that she said it was very quiet, and that does make sense if it was sneaking up quietly on possible prey. And that adds another layer of fright to the story, which, as an example of a large, unknown predator stalking semi-urban areas just as bears and packs of coyotes often do these days, is already quite scary enough."

Written Confession: Adele's Encounter with Nebster the Sasquatch

The following Confession was shared by Adele H. via email:

"It was a cool sunny Spring/Summer morning, I know it was that time of year because if it was full blown summer i wouldn't have been sitting outside due to the heat.

I was talking on the phone W/my friend Gail, she was talking so I wasn't making a sound. There was a slab of concrete down in front of me, where we'd put scraps of food, popcorn, bread, produce, all kinds of left overs for the Wildlife to eat.

We had a lot of different Wildlife that came to R slab to eat, we had ~ Wild Turkeys, Muskrats, Turtles, Ducks, Squirrls, Geese, Raccoons, Opossums, Ground Hogs, all different kinds of wild birds. & now We know we had Sasquatches as well.

Anyway as I was sitting there talking to my friend, I was watching all the critter's that had come to eat,. out of the cornor of my eye of my eye I saw this flash of beautiful Blonde hair bounding to the slab, @ first I thought it was an Afghan dog, because it's hair was smooth as silk & 6/7 inches long, it looked like someone had just brushed it's hair there was a gentle breeze blowing, so it's hair blew gracefully in the breeze.

Once it got down to the feeding station, it was on all 4's I could hear this grunting sound like a pig eatting, By now I was talking to Gail & I said Ur not going to believe what I'm seeing, I wasn't sure what it was but I started explaining this creature to her. He had black or very dark brown face, hands & feet, they looked like wrinkled leather. his nose was turned up a little but yet it was kind of smashed into his face like a monkey. his eyes were black. I say He because I didn't see any female parts, nor did I see any male parts either, so I just figured it was a male. 

As I looked @ it I felt like I was seeing a Disney Character, I felt utopia, mesmerized, almost like I was floating, I felt kind of sick inside because I couldn't wrap my mind around what I was seeing. {By now I had told Gail that I'd call her back later} I was still in my chair trying to comprehend all that was happening, the next thing I knew this thing stood up on its back legs, it was 3/4 ft tall, @ the time I was 5 ft. so it was almost as tall as I was, or maybe he was, it was hard to judge everything as things were now moving fast & out of sorts, he walked up this small hill we had in R back yard on 2 feet like a Human..

By now I was shaking but I wanted to get a better look @ this thing, so I stood up but stayed by my chair. I felt kind of dizzy & wobbly rellay out of sorts.

When I stood up this creature dropped down on all 4's & took off like a road runner, he moved faster then any animal I'd ever seen move before. {It never occured to me that where a young 1 is there it's Mother or a watcher is also, until my Friend Dave Groves was talking to me about it years later & he said its a good thing U didn't make a move towards him. You see I didn't even think about it being a Sasquatch until we had moved away.} 7 1/2 years later & I started putting it all together.

I ran towards the house out of fear & I wanted to get my Camera in case this thing came back. I went out there long enough to take Photo's of the yard, & then I ran as fast as I could to get back into the house. I locked the doors  scared that this thing what ever it was would come after me it could have come from a UFO for all I knew.. I sat & shook & cried until Tim {My Husband} came home about 45mins/1 hr later. I was still shook up when he came in & asked me what had happened.

Seeing this creature changed my life totally, I used to go out & work in the yard from the rising of the sun until it was dark out & Tim would have to come & ask me if I wasn't going to come in. After this encounter happened I wouldn't go out in the yard unless Tim came out W/me. He found this to be very odd behavior from what I was like before. He said don't be silly, I said I'm not being silly, U'd be afraid if U saw this thing just like I did and am, he'd just shake his head, he believe that I saw something, but he didn't understand the impact that it made on my life.

I tried to explain what it was I saw & he said it was just a Ground Hog,  I said does a Ground Hog walk erect on it hind feet & stand almost as tall as I am, he said Nope. I said I rest my case. I named this thing the Nebster, where I came up W/the name I'll never know but I had to name it something so Tim would know what I was talking about. 

I tried to go back where I saw him run to, it was in a grove of tall trees & low bushes, but there was to much Poison Ivy back there so I stopped going back any further.

We didn't live in that trailer much longer after that because it had Black Mold in it, the owner before us vented the dryer under the house instead of outside.....

....I wrote a report before this 1 but as I've read it, I see where I had left a few things out & had some mispelled words, so I've re-written my report. I also have Multiple Sclerosis & sometime I don't remember to add some vital parts.

We've since moved out to Zeeland Mi. we've had encounters here as well & now I know what it is that is leaving foot prints in the snow. 

Although the sun had melted the tracks somewhat, U can still see the 5 toes.

We also found a strange foot print under R carport  about 1 year ago {2017} & had an expert look @ the print & he say's it's a Dogman's print, much to my dismay. I'd rather face  SASQUATCH then a DOGMAN any day of the week."

 About the photos below:

"Here R the photo's of the yard where it took place, in a few of the Pix's U can see the arm of the chair where I was sitting, {The Nebster} what I named the Juvenile Sasquatch so my husband Tim would know who or what I was talking about, was down by the bird bath, if U look @ where my chair is sitting & look @ the bird bath, U'll see how close I was to him. I also put in the Google earth shots so U could see the whole area. The interstate runs East & West.

My Trailer which is no longer there, but a new 1 was put in it's place.  

The drive way sits to the West There R carports on both sides of R old driveway.

Where I was sitting in my chair, my chair was facing East. behind the wiskey barrels is the pond that turns into a Creek, theres a photo of an appartment parking lot, that is where the creek starts, & it ran down into the pond the pond then runs South or to the right of my chair."

Egyptian City in the Grand Canyon: Smithsonian Coverup or Historical Fabrication?

Did an ancient civilization live in caves found below the Grand Canyon? Was an Egyptian tomb excavated in the desert of Arizona? According to a front page story from a 1909 edition of the Phoenix Gazette, evidence of an ancient people was discovered in the Grand Canyon region, including a city of caverns, Egyptian artifacts, and a lost pyramid - a discovery that has allegedly been covered up by the Smithsonian Institution.

This isn't the first time the Smithsonian has been accused of covering up or outright destroying evidence of great archaeological discoveries. Most famously, the institute reportedly disposed of thousands of remains of giant humanoid skeletons during the early 1900s, although mainstream news outlets do not corroborate this story; the claim is outright denied by Snopes.com; and the original poster of the story is a noted "entertainment news" site. Be that as it may, the debate over the existence of the giant human remains still continues.

In the same vein, the Smithsonian may or may not have hushed up knowledge that ancient Egyptians once dwelt in Arizona. Is it possible? Is the evidence substantive, or based on conjecture? Although admittedly there is "no tangible proof" that the lost cave city really existed in the Grand Canyon, the theories are fun and compelling. David Hatcher Childress examines the stories - take a look here and consider them for yourself!

When a Bigfoot Photo... Isn't

In the world of Bigfoot, researchers and enthusiasts are constantly searching for answers and evidence about the existence of this famous but elusive bipedal cryptid.

Sometimes, compelling proof is presented to the community that points to Bigfoot as alive, well, and very real. At other times, the community is rife with zoomed-in images, red circles, and pareidolia - the phenomenon in which the mind sees supposed patterns where none actually exist.

The images below, taken and shared by Jason Parsons on the Pennsylvania Sasquatch Research Facebook page, demonstrate how someone might perceive a Bigfoot form in a photo when, in fact, there isn't. 

On the PSR Facebook page, Jason writes:

"What looks like a Bigfoot looking through a gap in the trees, with fingers touching the branch, looks totally different when taken with a professional camera.

First photo is taken with an iphone 7 zoomed in.

Second is taken with Canon 5d mk3

Here we can CLEARLY see that a blurred and distorted image of what might look like a Sasquatch, is in fact (and in most cases) just leaves and shadow."

In no way is either Jason or The Confessionals attempting to prove through this post that Bigfoot does not exist. Rather, the post and photos provided serve as an illustration of how we in the Bigfoot community should examine evidence with a practiced eye, and from different perspectives, to establish viable proof. In our excitement to discover Bigfoot, we should continue searching for evidence that he's "out there" somewhere and acknowledge the extraordinary instances when he is there in a photo... and also understand that sometimes, he just isn't.

Written Confession: Miranda C.'s Experience with Evil

The following Confession was shared by Miranda C. via The Confessionals' Facebook page:

"A couple of years ago my husband went to something called an encounter. It's a big movement in the Christian community. We were warned before he went that things might change between us and that satan would try to cause problems when he returned. We laughed it off and away he went.

A little background before I go on though. We both grew up in Christian homes but his family was way more active in the church than mine. My family quit going when I was in middle school but I had always considered myself a Christian.

Matt(husband) and I never really discussed religion. We would go to church with his family on occasion and did all of the holidays but we weren't members of any church. At one point I decided that we should get involved in one but that didn't last long and so when he got invited to encounter it was kind of out of the blue but he was willing to give it a try. I was excited for him and when he started to doubt going I would encourage him. 

The time came and he went. The day he got back I was really excited to see him but it's almost like the second he returned something changed within me. He was a completely different person when he got back: on fire for Jesus. He seemed to be high on life and ready to live for the lord.

I, on the other hand, went dark. I started to question my beliefs. I became angry and depressed. I thought about killing myself.(Not normal for me.) Matt and I fought all of the time about christianity and the kids. I hated myself and hated my husband for going to encounter. Divorce came up a lot. It was almost like something was trying to torture me. It was horrible!! This went on for months.

I finally decided that I needed to go to encounter to try to get out of the darkness I was in. It felt like there was something inside of me trying to keep me from going and it was a struggle to actually make myself go. But I did. And the second I got there, it felt like a huge weight was lifted. Like I physically felt better. When I returned home, Matt and I were excited to finally be on the same page after so many dark months(or so we thought) and were laying in bed talking when I decided to get up to get ready for bed. The second I stood up I instantly felt sick all over so I laid back down and felt this dark vibration above my body. It floated there for a second and then took off. My husband didn't know what was wrong. We grabbed a bible and prayed together and slept with a light on because whatever it was, it was evil. 

It was a terrifying experience and looking back, I know something evil was trying hard to get me to end my life. I have left out a lot of details because I already have a novel going but this was just one of my paranormal experiences!"

"Since a toddler, I have had something following me, making noises, moving stuff, and talking to me randomly. My family can attest to this, and my employees have unfortunately experienced things during overnight jobs. I'm used to it, but occasionally it can get me to jump."

Written Confession: Ninie T.'s Creepy Boombox

The following Confession was shared by Ninie T. via The Confessionals' Facebook page:

"1988. I had a boyfriend of a couple of years and we lived a block away from the house his family lived in. He was always teasing me and I was so naive back then lol. Except for when he told me his house was haunted. His whole family attested to it even the grandma and grandpa. I would just not really believe them.

We were living together at the time and he had gone somewhere without me. I had stayed home to get some things done. I needed something I don’t remember what but I decided to walk to his family’s house a block away knowing someone Had to be home. I knocked and walked in and called out and no one was home. I thought maybe someone might be sleeping upstairs so I quietly trudged on up and knocked on both bedroom doors. No one was home apparently and I just felt so like... I don’t need to be here and so I left quickly. I got outside in the sunshine and fresh air and I swear I felt better but I kept looking behind me. Home was just a block away and weather was nice birds were singing and so I walked into my house and turned on this little boom box I had and proceeded into the kitchen to clean some more. All of a sudden the music shot up to its loudest volume. Scared me. Was unexpected and sounded terrible so I ran back into the room to turn it down reallly fast and I started walking away again. And it did it AGAIN. I stopped heart stopped my whole body just stopped and I ran fast as I could to yank the plug from the wall and hit the door. Screw the cleaning. I was done until boyfriend got home. And then I told him what happened and he proceeded to say yuuup. Was the ghost. He was a stupid redneck boy. Hmmp. 🤗"

Written Confession: Darren H. and the Haunted Location That Followed Him Home

The following Confession was shared by Darren H. via The Confessionals' Facebook page:

"My wife and i went to one of Australia's most haunted locations. An old homested called monte cristo .This place is rather haunted and has a notorious history which is rather famous now a days and is used as a tourist attraction. Any way we spent a few hours touring the place and my wife came to the opinion that ghosts dont exist and set about saying this aloud around the place .

Fast forward a week and we had come to notice some strange noises and eerie feelings around our place. We then decided to consult a friends mother who is a psychic about what was going on. She was of the belief we had bought home with us the spirt of a young bloke who wanted to prove he existed. We were instructed to light some white candles and tell the spirit we believed in him so he would leave. A day later or so the activity increased which made my wife imcreasingly frightened so i made the smart descision to challenge the spirit . I said out loud to it to pick on me and leave my wife alone. The rest of the day was un eventful till around two in the morning when i awoke to the bed sheet shaking up and down on us and immediatly thought what the hell is the cat doing...i then remembered the cat was outside. This was the last we heard from that spirit.. he ceratainly proved he existed to my wife and i......not that i needed convincing."

Written Confession: Mike N.'s Paranormal Night

The following Confession was shared by Mike N. via The Confessionals' Facebook page:

"I had been on my guard since the last visit. It was the first time I felt threatened/scared. At this time I was not very well versed with the finer points of hauntings or how to deal with them. It was a week night so it was off to bed early because I am a natural early riser. I was awakened around midnight by a horrible nightmare that left me and the sheets soaking wet. The details of that dream have faded over the years but still remember the darkness of it.

I got up to get a drink of water and to let the sheets dry out a bit. I climbed back into bed shifting more to one side to stay off the damp sheets. As I laid there trying not to think of the nightmare I caught an "off" sound that came from the end of the bed. My ears perked up as I strained to hear the sound again. I decided to grab a pillow and propped my head up on the sleigh bed's footboard. Just moments later I did hear the sound again. It came from the wall that was just feet from my head. I shot straight up and turned to face the sound. The sound was nothing I had ever heard or have ever heard since that night. I can only compare it the sound of a can of spray paint being discharged but much, much lower in tone.

As I stared at the wall and sound I tried to pin point what part of the wall it was coming from. However the sound would be toward the lower part and then sound off up toward the top. They came 5-10 seconds apart. Then 4-5 seconds apart. Shooting from the top left to the bottom right. All of a sudden it was a constant repetitive mean disturbing LOUD over and over again. I had back up from the foot of the bed mid way through staring with WIDE eyes trying to figure out what the h#*ll was going on.

I soon realized that I did want to be where I was at. I jumped from the bed and headed for the front of the house. As I entered the utility room the sound got stronger and louder. It was coming from the bathroom that was opposite from my room. I flipped the light on in the utility room as I eased up to the bathroom. The sound was deafening. I stretched my arm into the bathroom to turn on the light. The sound was coming from the bathtub and wouldn't you know it the shower curtain was closed. I was pretty much freaking out at this point and wasn't about to enter the bathroom and open that curtain with my hand.

I looked around the utility room and saw the broom. I quickly grabbed that and slowly creped into the bathroom. I had the broom stretched out cause I wanted to be as far away from that tub as possible. I hooked the end of the shower curtain and jerked it open. And there, right there in front of me was nothing. Nothing but this evil, evil sound going around in circles over and over pausing from second to second to stop in front of me to give me a "well howdy do" to let me know it knew I was there.

I was shaking in my undies. Tears were streaming down my face and was unable to comprehend what I was witnessing. I have since learned that mean hauntings feed off your fears, well let me tell you there was plenty of fodder to feed from. I was absolutely terrified. This moment only lasted about a minute or two but seemed like hours. It continued going around and around in this small space of the shower/tub getting madder and madder. The low deep spraying sound was so loud at this point. After the few minutes it made a move to the lower part of the tub constantly making the sound and going in circles. Here's odd part, IT went down the drain. You could hear as the tone changed as it entered the opening and how the sound carried as it went into the plumbing to fade out.

I was left standing there with a broom in my hands shaking. I quickly left the bathroom and went to the front room. I was pacing back and forth trying to figure out what had just happened and what I was going to do next. I knew I had to calm down some how. That sound just seemed to continue in my head over and over.

After a bit I knew I had to get to bed because I had to be a work in a short time. With EVERY light on I eased into the bedroom. I climb into bed sliding all the way to the other side of the bed with my back on the edge of the bed. I was facing the door way and could see pretty much all of the room. I laid there for only a few moments when I felt something set on the bed right where the previous visitor stopped. It sat on part of my leg as it made itself comfortable. I was able to see the bed compress down as this happened. Sigh, I screamed like a little girl and ran to the front room and picked up my shaking. I was back to the pacing around like crazy again trying figure my best move.

The thing was I didn't have anyplace to go. There was such a heavy, intense, thick, mean feeling/vibe that radiated from the door way into the utility room. It's presents was so, so forceful that I found myself in the furthest corner of the front room. I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I felt so mean. I was afraid it was going to spill into the front and fill it up with this thick soup.
I wanted to run and fast. But I was in my underwear and it was February in AR which means very cold. I had to set in the corner of that room for hours to pass until that feeling of being watched by a mean thing to fade away. When it did I ran into my room quickly gabbing whatever clothes I could find and throw them on as I headed out the front door."

Ghostly Rider Captured on Drone Camera

In this day and age, drones catch some strange, scary, and head-scratching stuff that we miss down on the ground. In recent paranormal news, a UK man believes his drone has captured footage of a ghostly rider at medieval Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire. His film clearly shows something darting down the castle grounds, but is it really an otherworldly equestrian, or another kind of anomaly?

This is not Berkeley Castle's first ghostly encounter - as the oldest continually inhabited castle in the UK, Berkeley Castle is famous of the murder and subsequent haunting of King Edward II.
