    Some Cities Now Threatening Jail Time & Fines For Kids Over 12 Who Go Trick-Or-Treating

    Halloween has adapted over the ages from once being an ancient Celtic celebration of Samhain (marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year) to being ‘Christianized’ in the west as a time that begins the three day observance of All Saints’ Eve (Halloween), All Saints’ Day (All Hallows’) and All Souls’ Day, that dates between October 31st to November 2nd. This trifecta is a time intended to remember the dead, including martyrs, saints, and all faithful departed Christians. Of course today, most in society have strayed far from the intended traditional sense of the day to a more ... Read More

    22 Out Of 25 Popular Burger Chains Just Failed Their Antibiotic Use Report

    The modern-day food industry seems to pay no attention to health. Thankfully, global consciousness is shifting in several ways including how we live as humans, view our health, our economy, education, politics, and the environment. You could say that humanity is going through one MASSIVE change. Today, billions of animals in the United States alone are raised, tortured, and slaughtered for human consumption. This reckless production and consumption, in turn, has created enormous environmental and health problems that continue to accelerate. That being said, awareness on this issue (food) in particular, has come along way. We are seeing changes in the ... Read More

    Note To Selfie: Drop The Mask

    What if we all put down our masks? What if we agreed, that there would be no more disguises? What if we allowed each other to be our authentic self? Imagine the effect on Instagram. It boggles the mind. Too many people believe the content uploaded on social media is actually showing us truth. Far from it. The material chosen to be uploaded to Facebook, or liked on Instagram, bears little resemblance to true life. Each photo has been carefully chosen after taking a mind-numbing series of retakes. Each photo must be meticulously studied to ensure the subject looks nothing ... Read More

    Notable Scientist Publishes A Book About ‘Real Magic’ That Nobel Laureates Are Endorsing

    Is magic real? That depends on how you define it, but yes, I believe ‘magic’ is definitely real, and I’m clearly not the only one. Cases of ‘supernormal’ powers and ‘magic’ of all kinds have been reported throughout history and across almost all cultures–at least until religion was invented and these topics were ushered into the realm of the ‘demonic.’ Proponents of what we now call ‘magic’  include nearly all ancient literature from all parts of the world, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras, all the way to Moses, Jesus, Milarepa and Mohammed. Donald Lopez Jr., a professor of Buddhist and ... Read More

    Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Hollywood has rather overstated the reputation of today's piranhasScientists have unearthed the fossilised remains of a piranha-like species that they say is the earliest known example of a flesh-eating fish. This bony creature, found in South Germany, lived about 150 million years ago and had the distinctive sharp teeth of modern-day piranhas. These Jurassic marauders used their razor teeth to tear chunks of flesh and fins off other fish. Other fish were found nearby which had been attacked by the ancient piranhas. "We have other fish from the same locality with chunks missing from ... Read More

    The Man The CIA Wants You To Forget

    Michael C. Ruppert was an ex-LAPD Narcotics Detective and whistleblower who came out against the CIA in the late 70’s. He claimed they tried to enlist him in protecting and helping to facilitate their drug running practices. When Ruppert declined involvement and came forward he said he was threatened, wrongly discredited, and even shot at, but that didn’t stop him from speaking up. “I will tell you, director Deutch, that as a former LosAngeles police narcotics detective that the agency has dealt drugs throughout this country for a long time.” – Michael C.

    A Jury’s $289 Million Verdict Against Monsanto Might Be Overturned By The Judge

    Not long ago, school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson became involved in the very first lawsuit to go to trial alleging glyphosate causes cancer. The case made global headlines when the jury at San Francisco’s Superior Court of California deliberated for three days before finding that Monsanto had failed to warn Johnson and other consumers of the cancer risks posed by its weed killers. We’ve seen the same issue with similar substances like DDT, which was sprayed for years before it was finally banned decades ago. The unfortunate thing is that DDT is still highly present in the environment and in our ... Read More

    Mental Health Disorders To Cost $16 Trillion Worldwide By 2030

    Pediatric vaccines represent a $40 billion dollar market, and with emerging studies showing numerous causes for concern, coupled with the scientific fraud we’ve seen conducted by multiple pharmaceutical giants, it’s imperative that we really start to question the medicines being prescribed to us, and the influence that the medical industry has on manufacturing these medicines as well as providing medical education. It’s truly a shame that for the majority of human history, various cultures developed and utilize natural medicines effectively, but with the birth of chemical medicine (via John D. Rockefeller), all of the traditional ‘hospitals’ were completely destroyed, along with their methods ... Read More

    7 Thought-Provoking Short Films You Can Watch Now For Free Online

    The world of film has always captivated me. Whether it be its ability to present a supernatural reality I’ll never get to experience, or its ability to accurately depict an emotion I can relate to, there really is something surreal about going to or staying in to watch a movie. And while the subscription numbers to popular film and television streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime certainly suggest that I likely don’t need to sell you on choosing to watch them, I do believe that a pitch needs to be made for the particular variety of them that I’m ...

    A long walk: New insight into history of dogs and humans

    Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Dogs have been going on walkies for a very long timeDogs were part of a key moment in human history - when our ancestors began trying their hand at farming. As the first farmers moved out of the Middle East, herding animals such as sheep and goats, dogs tagged along too, say scientists. The DNA evidence fills in some of the gaps in the story of how wolves became the dogs of all shapes and sizes that we know today. Farming began in what is known as the Fertile Crescent of the Middle East ... Read More

    US senator Elizabeth Warren faces backlash after indigenous DNA claim

The Cherokee Nation slammed the results for showing trace amounts of native DNA. US President Donald Trump later took to Twitter to taunt Ms Warren. Many analysts speculate that Ms Warren, whose heritage Mr Trump has often mocked, is running for president. Ms Warren has not claimed to be a citizen of any US tribal nation. "Even they don't want her," Mr Trump said on Tuesday in response to the statement by the ... Read More

    Brain Imaging Shows Autistic Brains Contain HIGH Amounts of Aluminum

    A study published earlier in 2018 should have made headlines everywhere, as it discovered historically high amounts of aluminum in autistic brains. The study was conducted by some of the worlds leading scientists in the field. Five people were used in the study, four males and one female, all between the ages of 14-50. Each of their brains contained unsafe and high amounts of aluminum compared to patients with other diseases where high brain aluminum content is common, like Alzheimer’s disease, for example. Of course, this caused people to downplay the study, citing a low sample group, but that’s not entirely a valid argument given ... Read More

    Epigenetic Memories Are Passed Down 14 Successive Generations, Game-Changing Research Reveals

    This article was written by the Greenmedinfo research group, from Greenmedinfo.com. Posted here with permission. Until recently, it was believed that our genes dictate our destiny. That we are slated for the diseases that will ultimately beset us based upon the pre-wired indecipherable code written in stone in our genetic material. The burgeoning field of epigenetics, however, is overturning these tenets, and ushering in a school of thought where nurture, not nature, is seen to be the predominant influence when it comes to genetic expression and our freedom from or affliction by chronic disease. Epigenetics: The Demise of Biological Determinism Epigenetics, or ... Read More

    Catholic Church Ignores Pedophilia, But Bishop Warns Reiki & Energy Healing Are Satanic

    It is wisely said that, ‘you should clean up your own backyard first before you come running over to fix mine.’ Obviously, this wisdom continues to be lost on the clergy of the Catholic Church. According to this Irish News article, Catholic Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan has said he is establishing a “delivery ministry” of people who will attempt to rid others of the devil and warned that using reiki or other new-age healing methods could open one up to the possibility of encountering malevolent spirits. He said he had received “several requests” from people to help deal with evil forces. On the ... Read More

    Scientists Receive Green Light To “Resurrect The Dead” Using Stem Cells

    Death is a controversial subject in the medical field for many reasons. People rely on doctors to save them and their loved ones, but when fate has its way, the whole world can feel out of order. And while the death of a loved one may not feel final at first, we soon come to realize that, at least for the living who remain, it does mark an end. That’s why it seems like a controversial yet incredible move for a US biotechnology company called Bioquark to have been given permission to recruit 20 clinically dead patients and attempt to bring ...

    Stephen Hawking Had One Last Warning About The End Of Humanity Before He Died

    In a collection of essays which will be published posthumously, the late Professor Stephen Hawking made an eerie prediction regarding the future of humanity. Professor Hawking, who died in March 2018 at the age of 76, suggested there would be a new superhuman race, on account of the wealthy elite editing their own DNA and that of their children; manipulating factors such as memory, resistance to disease, cognitive ability and longevity. The legendary theoretical physicist believed advances in genetic engineering could lead to a new superhuman species, ultimately resulting in the destruction of the rest of humanity. In an ...
