In culture after culture, people believe that the soul lives on after death, that rituals can change the physical world and divine the truth, and that illness and misfortune are caused and alleviated by spirits, ghosts, saints ... and gods.

Fear's Thunderous Boom

A very interesting video. Easily a fake but interesting none the less. Reminds me of my younger days when we would " fool around " with Ouija boards.

Caution to headphone users.

The hazards of Ouija board use are plentiful and well documented. The negative vibrations resulting from opening a pathway to the spirit dimension can be unexpected and plentiful. Mary and her friends decided to do it anyway.
The group begins by asking the spirit if it is here with them, to which it responds yes. Further questioning reveals its name is Fear, and is neither human nor dead. Perplexed, the group of summoners asks what the spirit wants.


Out of nowhere, a loud unexplained boom shakes the entire house, causing the group to scatter desperately from their seats.
Was this the sound of the spirit crossing into the human dimension, or perhaps even the home itself? Whatever the case, this supernatural entity has made a bold statement to make its presence known. Mary and her friends may have opened themselves a can of worms.
