The “Blood Red” Monster of Flatwoods, West Virginia–UFO Sighting, 1952

Aliens, Unexplained

UFO accounts and close encounters with extraterrestrials are often spectacularly mystifying, but they aren’t always terrifying–mainly, because we associate aliens with advanced beings, not actual monsters or beasts, though there are almost certainly trillions of unimaginably horrifying alien creatures spread out across our universe, beings we can’t even fathom. The case of Flatwoods, West Virginia […]

The Best Horror and Sci-Fi Sequels

Entertainment, Horror Movies

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 […]

The Most Mysterious NASA Photos of Possible UFOs

Aliens, Unexplained

The Ghost Diaries has never claimed that UFOs are necessarily of extraterrestrial origin. In fact, we’ve listed 8 possible explanations of UFOs: clouds (or natural causes), hallucinations, aliens, humans (or AI) from the future, holograms, secret government technology, human/alien cooperative technology, and last but certainly not least, glitches in the matrix. But to repeat, the […]

By Finding Aliens, Will We Find Demons?

Aliens, E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

There are few entities that dominate our society more than aliens and demons. Whether you’re talking about science fiction, SETI, or religion, either the search for extraterrestrial beings or ghouls from Hell will be present somewhere. Both so close and so far, humanity as a whole can’t quite figure out where these entities live or […]

Old Unmanipulated UFO Pics That Really Make You Wonder

Aliens, Unexplained

We have no idea what UFOs are. The vast majority of UFOs that aren’t lens flares or natural objects are probably drones or some form of advanced government technology. Think about it, over 60 years ago our government built the atomic bomb in an underground city (the Manhattan Project)–God knows what insidious teleporting and nanotechnology […]

Your Grandchildrens’ Descendents Will Live In A Dyson Sphere–Just Like the Aliens Do

Aliens, Science

Featured image by Julian Aguilar Faylona Barring a mass extinction of the human race–which, of course, is completely plausible–our technological progress will likely continue to grow exponentially, making the chances of a technological Singularity quite good. This Singularity will fuel unimaginable change on the Earth–the development of androids, strong artificial intelligence, posthuman entities that combine […]

‘Spooky Action’: 3 Mind Blowing Ramifications of Quantum Entanglement

Aliens, Science

The following is a highly speculative article about possible future uses of quantum entanglement. If overwrought speculation bothers you, we recommend you not read it. On the other hand, if you like imagining the dazzling potentialities of quantum theory, godspeed you black emperor! Sending Information Through Time One of the startling conclusions of modern quantum […]

Top 5 Alien Abduction Movies

Aliens, Entertainment

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. But the fact remains, they just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Intruders Mare Winningham stars in this alien abduction drama directed by Dan “Dark Shadows” […]

The Most Wackadoodle UFO Religions Of All Time

Aliens, Entertainment

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 […]

UFO and ET Disclosure at Burning Man 2013

Aliens, Entertainment

The theme of Burning Man this year was Cargo Cult, which encompasses a variety of millennial beliefs, including the ritualistic ‘myth-dreams’ of John Frum, the synthesis of commercial value with colonization, and, yes, UFOlogy. We were as surprised as anyone to discover that the cargo cult metaphor involves a kind of underground First Contact ethos […]

7 Ways To Hunt For Aliens

Aliens

Hunting for aliens isn’t easy. We’re confident that statement is true. The SETI Institute has spent the last 50 years searching for signs and signals of aliens in the Goldilocks zone (regions of space just right for human life), and have turned up nothing except for the apocryphal WOW signal, which never repeated. Now, a […]

Interview w/ Micah Hanks, Author of The UFO Singularity

Aliens, Entertainment, Unexplained

The Ghost Diaries’ first webcast features an interview with author and researcher Micah Hanks, whose book The UFO Singularity explores the UFO phenomenon within the context of exponentially accelerating technology and intelligence. There aren’t many UFOlogists who bring such analytical and trenchant critique to the field while also illuminating new paradigms in exobiology. Topics discussed […]

Aliens, AI, Alex Jones, and the New World Order

Aliens, Conspiracy, Entertainment

Fermi Paradox be damned, our gut instinct is that there are many advanced extraterrestrial civilizations flourishing beyond our solar system. In a universe containing hundreds of billions of galaxies, each one containing hundreds of billions of stars, to believe otherwise is just plain odd. But it could take a while for us to meet ET. […]

Movie Review: V/H/S 2 and the Horror Panopticon

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Zombies

We’re in the Golden Age of the found footage genre. In the empire of the panopticon, horror movies thrive off 24/7 street surveillance, surgical cameras, security cameras, microscopic cameras, smartphones, webcams, etc. We live in a hunted, stalked society, consumed and regurgitated like a freshly turned zombie’s black bile. Cameras are everywhere–watching our carefully scripted […]

Confessions of a Paranormal Researcher Pt. 1

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

– Guest Post by the Banshee Anyone who tells you that he or she is a “paranormal expert” should probably not be trusted. This might be a strange way to start a series of posts on The Ghost Diaries about my own paranormal work and research. Call me way too traditional, but I do not […]

Life in the Matrix: New Evidence Supports the Simulation Theory

Science, Unexplained

By Jake Anderson Nick Bostrom has become somewhat of a cult celebrity in fringe circles for his authorship of the Simulation Theory. This theory supposes that because of the overwhelming likelihood of technological singularities occurring in the universe, it is quite likely that advanced civilizations–either us in the future, or aliens in a distant galaxy–have […]

Human DNA Could Contain Signature of Alien Creator

Aliens, Science

By Jake Anderson For decades, scientists have searched in vain for an alien signal to present itself in the depths of space. SETI’s fruitless quest to make contact with an extraterrestrial race has yielded frustration and, increasingly, doubters who use the Fermi Paradox and the Great Silence to argue that we are alone in the […]
