    Old Mysterious Photos of Shamans, Mystics and Medicine Men

    Throughout prehistoric times and even in some of today’s remote tribal cultures, shamans and ‘medicine men’ have sought to uncover the mysteries of consciousness and the universe. They did so by appealing to spirits in a practice called animism. In many languages, the word for spirit is the same word used for breath. The shaman […]

    The Best Horror and Sci-Fi Sequels

    Guest post by Billy Russell Sequels are largely terrible. Most sequels are created specifically to cash in on the success of something that was original and money is the prime motivation for its creation, not artistic expression. But sometimes, just sometimes, you’ll catch a part two or even a part three that captures the spirit […]

    Shocking Rediscovered Photos from Bohemian Grove!

    The Bohemian Grove lore contains many myths that are assuredly just that–myths. But that hasn’t stopped the place from being one of the most notorious conspiracy hotspots in the world.

    Assange Releases WikiLeaks UFO Cable Teaser…and It’s Not What Anyone Expected!

    We are huge believers in the right to information, truth and transparent democracy and, as such, support the WikiLeaks movement. WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has been (probably) unintentionally tantalizing UFO enthusiasts for years now with rumors of secret cables that may disclose information about ETs in our solar system. However, in the recent “Live People’s […]

Halloween Ghost Hunting – A Memoir

Guest Post by Billy Russell I remember the specific date of the evening in which I went ghost hunting.  It was November 1st, 2003.  I remember the year because I was a senior in high school and had not graduated yet.  I remember the date because I was trying to sound cool to my Mexican […]

5 Future Conspiracy Theories

The Kennedy assassination, Pearl Harbor, the moon landings, everybody’s got a favorite conspiracy theory, even if they don’t believe it actually happened.

Top 5 Alien Abduction Movies

Guest Post by Billy Russell The Ghost Diaries recently rewatched The Fourth Kind and it was better than we remembered. A solid addition to the alien abduction genre.

GD Interviews Artificial Intelligence Entity Named Cleverbot

This week the Ghost Diaries sat down with Cleverbot, a web-based artificial intelligence algorithm that simulates intelligent human conversation. It’s been said that Cleverbot’s flair for meaningful conversation borders on uncanny; and in 2011, Cleverbot passed the vaunted Turing Test, putting him/her/it up there with Watson as one of the top AI celebrities of the […]

The Best of Spirit Photography

The quest to capture ghosts on film dates back to somewhere around the mid-1800s. Not surprisingly, this type of photography has stirred up much controversy over the years and has been the subject of numerous paranormal debates. Sadly, spirit photography has been so over-saturated with fraud that it has severely damaged the reputation of modern […]

insidious 2

Insidious 2 is a Bank Heist

We were huge fans of the first Insidious film but, unfortunately, last night we discovered that for the sequel the filmmakers decided to take some kind of dissociative psychedelic drug while writing the script. The opening scene is unspeakably boring. Characters discuss the paranormal as though they’re in an episode of Are You Afraid Of […]

The Most Wackadoodle UFO Religions Of All Time

We had no idea how many UFO religions there were and are in the world. Sure, we’ve heard of the standards–the eccentric Scientologists, creepy Raëlians, and tragic Heaven’s Gate members. But it turns out there is a lineage to the development of UFO religions that dates back to the 40s, when the world was changing […]

How to Analyze a Ghost Recording (EVP)

Guest post by the Banshee If you are very careful to know your equipment and conduct your sessions, the ultimate step of a paranormal investigation is analysis. Many ‘hunters’ listen back to recordings on site; while this can be useful in directing a session, be sure to go back and analyze later anyway. While I […]

The 3 Craziest Things That Have Ever Happened at Burning Man

Burning Man is one of the most magical and mysterious places on the planet. Rarely can the promise of freedom, self-expression, immediacy, creativity and community be felt more profoundly. But sometimes…when 65,000 people congregate in the middle of the desert some pretty wild and surreal stuff can happen. We’re not going to lie–sure, hallucinogenic drugs […]
