Bigfoot Video Declared Fake

It didn’t really need to be said, but I’m glad it was. I reported on a supposed video of Bigfoot in North Carolina last week, and pointed out how fake it looked. According to this article, The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO.net) has now debunked the video of a supposed Bigfoot crossing a road, dubbed […]

North Carolina man says he’s got video of Bigfoot

And here we go again with another supposed video of Blobsquatch. I mean Bigfoot. The video is posted below, and I have to say that the gait of this thing looks pretty fake, like a man in a suit walking too fast, and you really can’t make out much except for the legs. This may […]

El Chupacabra Mystery Solved?

I’ve never really believed in the existence of el chupacabra. It has no real supporting evidence of its existence prior to 1995 (not to the extend that other cryptids do, anyways), and always seemed more the spawn of the internet craze rather than a real creature. And now after 15 or so years of lots […]

New UFO Documentary: UFOs Do Not Exist!

I have to admit, I’m lagging behind in my paranormal documentary watching lately, even though I did get the opportunity to see the very well-done Eyes of the Mothman last month. So I was excited to see that another documentary is coming out, this time about UFOs. I’m glad to see other paranormal topics getting […]

UFOs need gold?

Everything in the paranormal community seems to be a double-edged sword lately. Stories like this usually start off making me optimistic, and then there’s the inevitable letdown. I initially saw this story, and thought how great it was that UFO hunters were finally getting some press in an era where ghost hunters seem to dominate. […]

250th Post! And Bigfoot backed by the ACLU?

So this is officially the 250th post here at The Occult Section, and we’re coming up on our first anniversary soon. It’s been a great year, and we’ve made a lot of new friends, as well as strengthened some existing friendships. So I just wanted to say a big “thank you” to Sarah Harvey, Courtney […]

Rendlesham Forest files missing from UFO documents

The paranormal community has been abuzz lately, due to the release of government documents by the British Minsitry of Defence. Paranormal enthusiasts were hoping to finally get their hands on some juicy UFO files, but the “Holy Grail” of England’s UFO incidents, the Rendlesham Forest case, had files missing. The British Ministry of Defence recently released […]

Fired for being a paranormal investigator?

Being a paranormal investigator comes with its fair share of ridicule, disrespect and prejudice. On the harmless end of the spectrum, you may get a little ribbing from friends and family. But on the other side of the spectrum, people can get angry at you and even discriminate against you. And as this story illustrates, […]

Is the eastern cougar really extinct?

One interesting aspect of cryptozoology is animals that are known to have existed, but are now thought to be extinct. In some cases, such as the coelacanth, the animal is discovered alive and well, even after having been thought extinct for millions of years. In other cases, such as the thylacine (or tasmanian tiger), and […]
