The Ghosts of Emily Gray

 : : :  PRESS  RELEASE  : : :


Author and artist C. Keith Carpenter has recently published his new paranormal novel, “The Ghosts of Emily Gray.”

The story follows Erin, the surviving identical twin of Emily who was tragically killed exactly one year ago.

Multiple apparitions of the dead teen simultaneously haunt the family while Erin tries to cope with the guilt of Emily’s death, haunting visions, a jilted ex-boyfriend who taps into supernatural forces to enact revenge, and a family that is quickly disintegrating.

Having made a break with the occult underworld, Erin struggles with her own identity as a person while dating the high school football star who is very different from her.

Carpenter writes a smart, riveting, and fantastic story with well-rounded characters and many twists and turns. He is a graphic designer and copywriter whose spare time is also devoted to creating a very popular fine art series titled Alterniverse: The Urth Chronicles.

Settle in for the night and immerse yourself into the nightmare. It is a book you won’t be able to put down until it is finished cover to cover. Sleeping afterwards, however, may be a difficult task.

The novel is available online and at other locations which are listed on the website www.GhostsOfEmilyGray.com

Rick Dyer: Did he really kill Bigfoot?

Breaking News Rick Dyers Tent Video Has Hit Th...
Breaking News Rick Dyers Tent Video Has Hit The NEWS!! (Photo credit: Racer X9)




Many of you may recall when the news hit the pipelines about San Antonio hunter Rick Dyer and his proclamation that he shot and killed a Bigfoot. Dyer stated that he killed the supposed creature between Loop 1604 and Highway 151 in September of 2012.

According to Dyer he is not remorseful in the least over the killing and is set to tour the US with the "stuffed" corpse of BigFoot. Dyer stated that Bigfoot is "real" and that extensive tests have been conducted on the corpse. Dyer also said the world would know he is the best Sasquatch tracker in the world. Dyer also said that the tests conducted were everything from DNA to 3D optical tests.

Dyer also provided a grainy cell phone video of "Bigfoot" outside of his tent showing interest in pork ribs that were nailed to a tree for bait. That being said, many experts in related fields of study have called into question not only Dyers claims but his legitimacy entire. Many reports state that in 2008 Dyer was involved with a Bigfoot hoax, and as such those who have commented on  his claims do not lend any real credence to his September 2012 story.

The sad part about this story is the fact that the hunter Dyer said that he had no regrets to shooting and killing this beast. If you assume he is telling the truth about killing Sasquatch, one has to wonder what kind of person is proud to have killed the elusive being? We would guess it is the same person that would be happy to take the corpse on tour to brag about it to the world. We at TPB hope this is all just another hoax by Dyer. It is far less bothersome than to believe someone could kill something so close to being human as to brag about it..

For those Bigfoot enthusiasts, you'll be interested to know there will be a new Bigfoot hunter-type show airing soon. This newest show claims to be different from other shows that are
The show, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" is set to air on Spike TV January 10, 2014.

Maybe we're slow...but whats the deal with Bigfoots foot?

English: Footprint on earth... Photograph from Maldives (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Ok its been awhile since we've posted anything on the site, apologies, there are a lot of things going on elsewhere so hope you guys have stuck around. We've been thinking on the issue of Bigfoot's foot for sometime now and this has plagued our brains considerably. So with that being said, we thought we'd throw this out to the smartest people we know, our readers,, yeah you..and ask you what your thoughts are, so here it goes..



Why is it that there is only one foot print of Bigfoot? I know someone out there will say there are multiple casts of both the left and right foot but where are they so we can go look?
It seems every time a "print" is found it is only one, which begs the question, is Bigfoot really "bi-pedal" afterall? We're beginning to wonder. You can go where one man has been and if he is barefoot in that area, you will more than likely see more than one foot print..why isn't this the case where bigfoot prints are located?
Another thing we have noticed is how perfectly formed the foot is, the toes in most seem to be all perfectly lined up, there's usually no wonky shapes....don't some of you think the foot print is a little too perfect most of the time?  If we were to look at our own footprints in the mud, or sand, we'd surely see some wonky prints some of the time. Maybe a big gap between poppa bear toe and the second toe, maybe the second toe is longer than the big toe, or the little toe is weird..at any rate, we just can't seem to find one that is unique looking, and when one is produced, it is sooooo unique looking that it looks like it isnt a bigfoot print at all.
What say you all?

Sylvia Browne Passes Away at 77

We decided not to rehash what can be easily found on the web about the details of where she passed and the like. What TPB has decided would be more interesting now is to discuss the medium and her legacy. Its about opening up and having a discussion.
Sylvia Browne perhaps was best known for her books and appearances on television, most notably the Montel Williams show. Montel seemed to place a great deal of faith into her gifts and you clearly got that sense of it when you watched her on his show. Browne was also quite controversial at times and did have quite a few well noted inaccuracies in her predictions. While no psychic can be completely right all the time, one does have to be very very careful when they reach great heights in fame to not let the ego cloud the vision, which may have been in part the problem with Sylvia Browne.
Her most wildly reported snafus were when she told the mother  of  kidnapping victim Amanda Berry that her daughter was not alive, when in fact the kidnapping victim was very much alive and found a decade later still with her captor. Additionally she told the parents of  young Shawn Hornbeck that their son was no longer alive and that his abductor was a dark male with dred locks. Shawn Hornbeck was in fact alive and his captor was caucasian.
While the public can accept that the gifts of psychics are not always accurate, one has to wonder at the same time, if it is a good idea to make sure "definitive" statements about death when speaking to desperate and pain ridden loved ones publicly or privately.  We have no actual data that can accurately predict Brownes true success rate, however many other well known mediums have been out spoken in her defense. What say you? Our readers, was she legit?

Alien Theories and Discussions

Alien
Alien (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
We've been studying Alien related topics for some time now and we love it when we all get in on the conversation. One thing we'd like to ponder today is a few Alien theories. We as humans tend to rationalize and explain everything we think, feel and believe in based on a certain set of human experiences and guidelines. We are completely handicapped by this in many ways. Its like trying to figure out the universe, based on an episode of the Brady Bunch isn't it? In short we only know what we know, the rest we can only look at based on educated guesses.

That being said, have you ever wondered why, if aliens do exist, why they don't just make their existence known world wide, all at once? Even remotely? From a safe distance? Could there be a viable reason? Most certainly there is...but what is it? Here's where theory comes into play, that is one thing we humans have no shortage of..Most of us agree, that alien intelligence would be superior to our own. This is why we have more theories than accessible evidence but that is ok, it's a start, right? Assuming they are far superior to us, can we then assume their reason for not blatantly making their existence known has to do with an understanding of human nature? Many believe they have been visiting our little blue marble for a long long time, and certainly they know we are not  a friendly species although we like to think we are. They may have actually fostered many ideas and inspirations man has had.

Man has repeatedly throughout history brutalized his own species, and most living entities on this planet. Has he evolved into a higher state of being, a less violent creature through out time? Honestly? No. We've managed to create weapons that can wipe out an entire country, we can manipulate bio chemicals to destroy life as we know it..so are we a kinder gentler species now? Far from it, if anything our growth and greed have made us more violent and more dangerous. We would like to believe we are different, we read history books and scoff at our own brutal past as if we've come so far but we've only made progress in our ability to deny our true nature.

So we can probably assume that aliens know we are violent and not to be trusted as a species, we likely appear quite primitive to them. We may be able to assume with some degree accurately that if they wanted to destroy us they would have done so by now. Mankind for them may simply be an experiment that they have been studying since the beginning. The randomness of their appearances world wide may also be very deliberate. Could they be simply leading us to them? Instead of them coming to us? Why lead us? That could take a long time at this pace, but perhaps that time is needed. We are far from knowing what is best for ourselves. We are but toddlers in a large play pen. Could this slow process between mankind and aliens meeting face to face, have to take this slow process simply because we just aren't ready yet?

Pyramids: Human Ingenuity or Alien Design?

All Giza Pyramids in one shot. Русский: Все пи...
All Giza Pyramids in one shot. Русский: Все пирамиды Гизы на изображении. Español: Las Pirámides de Guiza (Egipto). Français : Les Pyramides de Gizeh (Egypte). Català: Les Piràmides de Giza, a Egipte. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
You know we've done a lot of posts about ghosts, and other creatures but today we're going to talk about the pyramids around the globe. We  love interacting with our readers so we'd love to have anyone weigh in their thoughts with regards to pyramids.

First let us say, no doubt mankind has created some impressive architectural wonders throughout our existence, but we've few to compare our work to. We might in  some cases be giving the creatures of our planet a less than favorable/fair review? Ants, termites, and birds come up with amazing structures of their own and when we consider they work with a far less advanced brain...well you get where we're coming from..
This leads us to the pyramids which have been found all over the world. They've been quite a mystery to modern day man, and seem to hold more questions than answered. Some are more sophisticated than others but they all seem to have structural purposes that leave man scratching his head.

Spirit Contact: Are we intruding and bothering the spirit world?


We've heard from time to time from mediums that some ghosts are tired of the constant attempts to communicate with them and we have to wonder if this may be true in some cases? In some instances the spirit world may be happy to know that someone is acknowledging them and may have messages of value to impart, but how about others? For instance, the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast in Fall River Massachusetts has been deluged with investigators, psychics, and every quija board carrying ghost enthusiast imaginable.
Lizzie Borden House (Bed/Breakfast)

No doubt hundreds have come to that place to find evidence of spirit activity and existence. So whatever happened to "Rest in Peace" and does it irritate the spirits in this B&B? Psychic Amy Allen alleged so in an episode of the Dead Files, and it is worth considering. So what say our readers? Do you think the spirits are bothered with the constant investigations, the constant demands to "touch someone" or "make a sound" or ? Please weigh in..

Paranormal States Ryan Buell Latest Tweet Update

For those that love Ryan Buell as much as TPB does, we saw this via facebook and knew we had to share this with all of you. There has been tremendous interest, love and concern for the Paranormal State Star and many of you have not only expressed love and support but concern and interest in his life and how he is doing, and what he is doing. We  hope you take the time to read:

Announcement:
Paranormal State & AGH Tour
Hey guys, I posted this via Twitter but thought I'd share here... You know, it's been two years since our last "new" episode of PS. And as you also know, I've had to take quite a lot of time off the past year-and-a-half. I haven't been in a place, health-wise, where I could even consider returning to TV or doing any major projects until now. I spent some time this summer taking meetings in LA and in NYC to see if there was any interest in me returning to TV, and to my surprise, there was/is a ton of interest. Most of them said the same thing, "we're ready to work with you, just keep focusing on your health and getting better, we are here, ready when you are." I asked you guys, back in May and July, how you felt about me/PRS returning to TV, and literally HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of you responded. Some of you may say, "well duh, what did u expect us to say? No?" To he honest, I didn't know what to expect. I've had to drop the things I was most passionate about in order to focus on my health. And two years is a long time. Perhaps there wouldn't be any interest. But I've been told by many, from old producers to agents, that our show, "Paranormal State," continues to do well in reruns. And our fan numbers keep growing. You want to know how I feel? I feel blessed. And sometimes, I feel I don't deserve it. You guys have been so supportive, through the ups and downs. And health-wise, it's true that I still have a long battle ahead, despite the battles I've won against this disease. But what's the point of living & fighting if you have nothing to LIVE for? Whether I ultimately like it or not, paranormal investigation is my life's work. I was doing it before a show and I'll keep doing it, with or without a show. PS is genuine because we really care about the work. And so, when it comes to returning to TV, I also wanted to make sure I had a good reason for doing so. And it needs to be the right time. Right now is that time. It's as good as it will ever be. And I want to do it again, because I'm older, (arguably) wiser and have more to offer, hopefully. We changed the world once already, and we can do it again. To come back with something different & once again groundbreaking! Other things are different also. We're building a new team, we have new goals and resources that I've kept very close to the chest, that only Serg, Eilfie and Chris know about, because we wanted to wait for the right time. So, I am ready to return and I've made the decision to once again be open to having a TV crew document our/my lives and our search for the unknown. So, where are we with that? Well, I've been dropping some hints here and there. If you're attentive, you'll be able to piece the clues together. Bottom line is, we're about to make a come back. And I have faith that you all will love what we are developing. B/C that's just as important to me. So there you have it. Yes, we are making the jump to return to TV. And soon I'll finally be able to reveal more than just a tease! My suggestion? Dust off those DVD's, keep watching our Twitters, website & Facebooks for info and most of all: get ready!

Fairies: Real or Insects?

Fairy image
Fairy?

It has come to our attention that there are a lot of people in society today that actually believe in fairies, and many claim to have either seen them or have photographs of them. We've seen some of the photos, and of those photos there are some that are pretty interesting while others look like insects and/or flying grasshoppers-moths. If you ask the photographer "How do you know this isn't a flying insect?" you usually will get this reply or some derivative of it, such as "You just know.." which speaks more to an intuitive knowledge over any factual one. TPB does give individual "intuition" credence as well.
However, that is hard for the average "Joe" to swallow. Fairies do have some history behind them to support their existence. There were, in fact a small race of people known as the Thuathe de Danaan in Ireland. Such small framed people were known to exist in Europe, the British Isles and in the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
Some believe fairies are nature spirits that live in wooded areas, near lakes and  streams etc. Fairies are believed to be Pagan and also are touted to have advanced psychic senses but are shy and reclusive in nature.
Like most things that man is intrigued by, some say no such existence can be accepted until indisputable evidence can be offered.
The problem with this is that there is no such thing as indisputable evidence, as all evidence can be disputed.  With that being said, still, great photos are always elusive and finding someone brave enough to authenticate them even more challenging. After all, with all of todays digital advancements, one can create almost anything, and say this is proof. For those that belief no evidence is needed, for those that don't no evidence is enough.TPB says, what harm is there in believing? What say you?

Astrology, Astronomy and Horoscopes Oh My...

Ok today we had a question posted on facebook that just begged for debate. Now truth be told if you believe in the paranormal, and you're reading this, we're likely preaching to the choir but at the same time, it was an interesting thread. Some religions believe Astrology, is evil, and goes against the wishes of God.

Now depending where you go and what you read you will get varying answers that are supposedly in the bible..however those that tell us what the bible says regarding astrology are putting a certain spin on things that most may not even know of.

For instance, I never  thought of astrology as being a tool of divination. In simpler terms I never believed its purpose was to be used to predict any future events. However, aside from that I do wonder, if it isn't a tool of understanding of ourselves, our true nature before the world gets its hands on us and changes what was meant to be.

According to gotquestions.org God placed stars in the sky for man to use to navigate and keep track of time. Here's where it gets interesting, according to this site, and I quote:

    The Bible says that stars, along with the sun and moon, were given for “signs” and “seasons” (Genesis 1:14); that is, they were meant to mark time for us. They are also “signs” in the sense of navigational “indicators,” and all through history men have used the stars to chart their courses around the globe.

 Ok, now here is what is actually in the Bible:

    And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so.

Now if you see there is a difference between the two, one is actually from the bible and the other is the authors interpretation of what it meant. See the difference?
"that is, they were meant to mark time for us."

 Here is the problem, this happens a lot with man..he decides to make what is, fit with what isn't..and vice versa. The truth is, this is the authors "spin" on what the actual Bible says. For the reader, lets say  someone who is reading the Bible and not relying on someones interpretations ie: priest, preacher...what do you think they would gleam from this sentence? For me, when I read it, what I see is it says the Heavenly bodies are there to help man, that he may look to them to help with time and signs. Since it is not clear what is truly meant by the word 'signs' are we not left to interpret that for ourselves?

Again on this same site, you will see where  the author of the post writes:

    "Astrology is the “interpretation” of an assumed influence the stars (and planets) exert on human destiny."

Now the most common definition we found :


    The study of the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs.

One says it is a study based on positions and aspects of celestial bodies  and how they may influence the course of natural earthy occurrences (which is a fact) and human affairs,  the other says it is an interpretation based on an assumption that stars and planets can influence human destiny. Whats the differences, the first description sounds a lot more like "divination." Why ? Because it fits with the authors overall assertion that it is against God's wishes.

However if we look at the actual definition, it doesn't sound like a tool for divination but an actual study based on what we do know. We do know that the position of the moon, and sun affect all of life on the planet. It is natural to assume these bodies also have an impact on man as well.

While some may want to believe or use astrology for a tool of divination, its up to the individual. However to assume anyone studying or believing in the logic behind the definition is somehow anti-God is ridiculous. Those planets were placed in the sky for a reason. Since there is not a lot of mention of other planets besides the sun, moon and stars, we have to assume that astrology is not fairly covered nor represented fully.

Let us remember that only a short time ago did man even know the earth was round, much less that there were other planets in the sky, and yet, they did have access to the bible. Since there is a great area that is not specifically addressed with reference to Astrology in its truest definition, why does man feel so compelled to try and explain what the bible says? At the same time God created them all. When the bible was written man was not aware of most of them that we today know of.

So what is your thoughts? Our brilliant readers? Is there some evil associated with studying planets and stars and how they may impact man and his life, his characteristics? What say you?

Oh for those that think there is a huge difference between Astrology and Astronomy, here's the definition and  I do say there is only a slight difference..
as·tron·o·my  (-strn-m)n. pl. as·tron·o·mies
1. The scientific study of matter in outer space, especially the positions, dimensions, distribution, motion, composition, energy, and evolution of celestial bodies and phenomena.  See Astronomy via: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/

Destination America's new show Mountain Monsters


If there is one paranormal show that is disturbing these days it is Destination America's 'Mountain Monsters'. The show documents Appalachian mountaineers that “investigate” various reports of creatures throughout the Appalachian mountain region. Recently the mountaineers were hunting down a creature called the “Wampus Beast” but have also gone after other creatures well. The name of the group of mountain monster investigators is called Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings, or AIMS.

At first glance, it seemed an amusing idea. Mountain men investigating sightings in the mountains may offer some comic relief, since many seem to be a colorful bunch of grand story tellers. What became bothersome about the show was how potentially dangerous and haphazard the men seemed to be. Every noise in the dark seemed to prompt the men to take aim with loaded rifles in whatever direction. With the use of traps and live bait the men attempt to lure these “creatures” but are also appear eager to shoot one if they think they are threatened.

It seems a reckless venture from all sides. None of the creatures they are investigating have ever harmed a human being, yet you hear “if it's big enough to kill a hog, it could kill a man...” and “if they are killing our livestock who's to say they won't kill a human or a small child.” Supposedly using that sort of logic is how they would justify killing one of these creatures. They could also argue their lives were threatened, however when you use bait and you seek them out from hiding you're assuming a certain risk. If these creatures are real, there is certainly no evidence to suggest they are any threat to humans.

Investigating these creatures, or obtaining evidence of their existence is a worthy endeavor under certain conditions, but to track them down with guns drawn in the dark seems an experiment in idiocy. Why do five or six men all need rifles just to investigate a creature? Personally they all look like idiots when any noise has them aiming blindly in the dark. God forbid someone walk up on these hillbillies in the dark. One thing I am impressed with and thankful for, these creatures all seem to be far wiser than their aggressors, they have to be, and so should we.

Dead Files: Hey Amy stop droppping the "F" bomb?

Time and time again we write about these shows on television and time and time again, we see psychics and investigators alike showing disrespect for the spirits. After all some of these spirits are children, some are from time long past etc. It is not necessary to use foul language in their presence and shows not only a lack of respect but a lack of professionalism. A psychic like Amy should know better than to be disrespectful of the dead. We've seen her all but scold homeowners that disrespect the dead, and then routinely use expletives around them with out any regard for their sensibilities. In short, you should not use or act any differently in the home of the dead than you would in the home of the living. Point blank.

Many Viewers Angry with Animal Planet and the 'Mermaids: The New Evidence' hoax

Animal Planet logo prior to February 3, 2008.

If you tuned into Animal Planets latest mermaid installation 'Mermaids: The New Evidence' then you know that it was presented in a documentary style format and was supposedly a follow up the original "mermaid" show that aired earlier on Animal Planet. If you missed the first show, the general premise was that there were "mermaids" in the oceans all over the world. The second installation presented their so called video and photographic evidence. Many watched, 3.6 million to be exact, only to discover later the whole show was a fraud, a hoax.

The shows writer/creator Chris Foley admitted that the show was presented in a realistic way so that people would at least consider there may be a possibility of some unknown creature in our vast oceans. Many watchers though, feel the show was misleading and believe that Animal Planet has lost a great deal of credibility as a direct result of this latest venture. There were some obvious clues that the show was lacking some authenticity as the guest scientist did have the “deer caught in the headlights” look on his face during the show.

The audience kept waiting for him to say something insightful and were no doubt dismayed to discover no such insights were forthcoming. There was some obvious computer work involved but then again, hindsight is 20/20 as they. The big question here is, now that we know that shows like Animal Planet will stoop low enough to mislead and fabricate “evidence” will this make it harder for those that are trying to argue on legitimate phenomena? Will the real backlash from this “creative stunt” be that those that have valuable evidence get thrown out with the bathwater now? Regardless of whether you believe in the existence of mermaids or not, there should be a very visible line between telling a good story and representing something falsely as “evidence.” When Animal Planet blurred that line, they blurred their authenticity and credibility as well.

Ghost Hunters Mid Season Premiere

Well if you're a die hard Ghost Hunter fan you wont have to wait for long before the Mid Season Premiere airs. Come June 12 th,  9/8 c the members of the Taps team will be back in the saddle again. Touting themselves as "Televisions #1 paranormal reality series" we can only speculate as to whether they will live up to the billing. In the past viewers as well as TPB readers have conveyed the shows have lost something in the years to follow their initial success. We've pondered the whys and what ifs, and what abouts no end to try and figure out if Ghost Hunters could improve on their failing popularity. Many of you, our loyal and most brilliant readers shared your thoughts and here's what some of you had to say..:

  1. Eva ThomasDecember 7, 2012 at 7:13 AMI have noticed a huge difference in Ghost Hunters lately. For me it just does not have the zing it did in the past. It is like the zest of doing the job is a little lost, if that makes sense. 
  2. Richard C RyderOctober 4, 2012 at 9:15 AM I think that the show is better without Grant so far... with that being said, I wonder who will step up and take his place. I think the shows so far this season seem to be more based on the roots of when their show started. I like what they've done lately and think that they have had some incredible finds, especially last night's show.
  3. AnonymousFebruary 20, 2013 at 11:23 AM Honestly, I can't watch the show anymore. We are left with two very pompous and conceited individuals,(Steve and Jason) and the show just seems so empty. I was growing old of the show anyway, "Hey, did you hear that?" "Is anybody there?" "What was that?" etc. I've done some growing up since the show began and it seems so lame now. Grant was a class act, the genuine article, no airs or posturing, just professional investigating. I really looked up to him. Steve seems like such a sneaky opportunist and Jason is so full of himself that there is no balance between the team. And then all the new characters, they really lack personality. Yeah, I'll continue to watch "Ghost Hunters," the reruns when the show was a class act! Sorry guys, but I think  Grant was smart to leave before the show loses it's luster. All I can say is, dudes, you really should stop while your show is still afloat, you're just going to ruin it for the entire paranormal genre...
  4. AnonymousFebruary 15, 2012 at 8:20 PM  I must say that Grant was one of my favorites and I believe due to the ridiculous guest stars, flash light tricks and Grant not wearing his wedding ring might have something to do with him leaving. I guessed who was going to be leaving, but the reasons why are still up in the air. Plus, Grants hasn't been looking too well lately. Again, it could be due to his health or home-life. I just wish he would come out and say why and get all out in the open. We love you and wish you would stay, but we understand.

Hunter claims to have shot and killed two Bigfoot Creatures

Our first questions to our readers is this, what would you do if you suddenly encountered two Bigfoot creatures in the woods? Secondly, is it right to kill any creature that you aren't even sure of what it is? The reason we at TPB ask, is, what if this was just two hoaxsters dressed in ape suits and a nervous shooter decides to take aim? Should it be legal to shoot the unknown? Should the hunter have just turn around and run?
While there are blurry images, foot print casts, recorded howls and the now famous Patterson Bigfoot tape, which many believe is the only legitimate footage available. What would it take to prove this large ape creature exists? A dead body, or enough remains from the body to acquire a dna sample. Without hard evidence there can be no true conclusion, however this can not only be hard to obtain, but at what cost?

Some of you may have recently heard the story of hunter Justin Smeja who appeared on the show Monsters and Mysteries this past March. Smeja was featured on a segment of the Monsters and Mysteries show for having shot not one but two Bigfoot creatures while hunting in the Sierra Mountains. One creature was larger, and one was believed to be a juvenile. Smejas reasoning for shooting both in haste was out of panic and fear.

Later the hunter felt was he refers to as “great remorse” after approaching the dying juvenile and seeing just how human they appeared. Once Smeja was sure the creatures were dead, there was an attempt to cover and conceal the bodies shortly before leaving the area. Before going any further, reports as to whether Justin Smeja is lying about his experience have been countered it a lie detector test in which Smeja passed. For those also wondering, dna samples have been obtained, however the results of those findings have yet to be revealed.

The bottom line is this, what do you feel the moral implications are here. If Bigfoot exists, is it right to hunt and pursue this creature to the point that we take it's life in order to prove it exists? Is it necessary?Is man's need to know, more relevant than the life of the Bigfoot? Now that someone has claimed to shoot a Bigfoot will this encourage more to try and hunt and kill one? There are multiple monetary rewards across the world. Why wouldn't this creature hide? One has to ask, at the end of the day, which one is the beast and which one truly is, more human?

Black eyed Children..Real or Urban Legend?

Black Eyed Child?
Ok, it has been ignored long enough we suppose, but have our readers heard of this? Supposedly these children are strangely approaching people and homes the world over and the general consensus is, they are not to be allowed inside your home.

A quick little search online turned up plenty of written articles on the subject but we've seen nothing that could possibly make this seem more than urban legend. That being said, we'd love to hear our readers opinions and feedback on this...and would YOU let them in?

Here's some big questions, if they are all over the world, and people have had encounters, our big question is, as with all phenomenon, where's the pictures?

Where would these children come from and has anyone ever called the authorities and if so what ever came of it, surely this would headline the news, wouldn't it?
Anyone have an encounter? Urban legend or a clever way to promote a book.. your thoughts? Why? Because our readers are smarter than everyone else's :-)

Famous Unsolved Murders and psychic impressions

It is often frustrating to see some who has a golden moment to converse with a world renowned medium and ask questions about finding their soul mate. Speaking for TPB we'd be more interested in gaining insights into the more broad spectrum unsolved, unknown mysteries, in particular, famous missing persons and or famous unsolved murders.
Here are a few unsolved murders we'd love some insight on from psychic mediums:

Original poster to the The Boy in the Box case...

The Boy in the Box
This disturbing case emerged back in the late 1950's in Pennsylvania where a young box was found in the woods nude, covered in bruises with blanket inside of a cardboard box. The child died as a result of head injury and was between the ages of 4 and 6. This case has been unsolved now for 56 years. It is a shock to think this abused youngster died anonymously, and with few traces or evidence of having ever existed. The saddest part is, this childs killer could still be alive today.


















Jon Benet Ramsey
The most bothersome part of this whole murder is the complete lack of logic to it. Here you have a child that was well provided for, living a life of privilege, with a seemingly adoring family. Discovered missing early Christmas morning from her bed only to be discovered by father John Ramsey in the home's cellar. There was a ransom note recovered at the home that requested a specific sum of money for the return of the daughter. Why would the murderer kill their victim if money were the motive? Why would a kidnapper ask for such an odd dollar amount of money? This would be a great unsolved case to get feedback from the psychic community.

The Black Dahlia
Also known as Elizabeth Short. This case has strange written all over it and theories abound. Why would anyone want to slaughter a young lovely 22 year old in such a way as to complete mock her life. Around 60 people confessed to the murder of Elizabeth Short, some in fact were even women. Shorts body was severed in half, a long gruesome cut across her mouth from ear to ear and found in an area that would make her easy to find.
This is just a few of the big questions we'd have, what would you be curious about???
