People often think of Karma as a vengeful force that turns the tables on poor behavior, giving bad people what they deserve, but it goes much deeper than that. In many ways, Karma is nothing more than a scale, balancing the good on one side and the bad on the other. The problem is determining what is good and what is bad.
From a possible alien civilization to ghost ships and planes, 2015 was a great year for unsolved mysteries.
The horror and scifi films of 2015....what to watch, what to skip
Four hundred years after 16th century, French seer Michel Nostradamus recorded thousands of predictions regarding our civilization’s future, our culture remains enthralled with his often foreboding prophecies. Documented using several languages including French, Latin and Greek, he wrote in a four line prose called a quatrain, divided into centuries, replete with colorful symbolism and cryptic messages. His complicated writing style has fostered much debate regarding the interpretation of the prose in his 942 quatrains, but some agree that on several occasions, he definitely got some wood on the ball.
As soon as the doll arrived on his doorstep, Anthony put an EMF detector near it, hoping to see a signature spike on the ghost hunting meter that might suggest a haunting, but was disappointed when the needle didn’t budge. He even tried to record an EVP by setting a digital recorder near the doll, but the recording was blank when he listened back. No EMF spikes and no EVPs. He shrugged, thinking it would still make a good chapter in his book. The lack of results didn’t stop him from taking precautions though.

You think you know Krampus? Think again!
Are you ready for next-gen alien entertainment?
Krampus is a beast of legends, harking back to both Norse and Greek Mythology. It was used for generations to keep children from misbehaving, while instilling within them a lifetime of phobias.

In 2014, a National Geographic study reported that 77 percent of Americans believe not only in the existence of aliens, but that they have been regularly visiting Earth. The majority’s acceptance that there is life on other worlds in the universe continues to be fueled by credible eyewitness accounts from military and commercial pilots. Even respected astrophysicist Neil deGrassi Tyson told Chris Hayes of MSNBC that we may have already been visited by alien life. Additionally, world famous and brilliant theoretical physicist Steven Hawking stated in his documentary Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking that “alien forms almost certainly exist”.
Has the onslaught of paranormal shows and movies minimized the lives of the dead? Have we stopped seeing them as people who have loved ones still mourning their losses and simply view them as opportunities for fame? Tammy Rosenfeld echoes this sentiment. “There is no integrity in the field anymore. Everyone wants their fifteen minutes of fame.”
Has Luke joined the Dark Side?
The Spider Gates Cemetery legends are astounding. Some say that it’s the eighth gate to hell, that a boy hung himself there in the 1800’s and that people often hear a roaring coming from the woods surrounding it. Other legends state that if you walk around the grave of Marmaduke Earle ten times at midnight, chanting “Marmaduke, speak to me,” that he will respond. The other legends aren’t even worth mentioning, they are so overblown.
