Alien search telescope shut down

In some sad news, it seems as though funding for the Allen Telescope Array has been cut, and the observatory has had to shut down the array. From BBC News: The Allen Telescope Array (ATA) in California has been mothballed, according to the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (Seti) Institute. Funding for the observatory, which hosts […]

Zak Bagans to Host Paranormal Game Show

Ok, I won’t mince words here. I don’t like Zak Bagans. Maybe it’s because I’m not a 12-year-old girl who is more impressed by a guy taking his shirt off than actually investigating the paranormal in a serious and scientific manner. But who wants to see that, right? Anyways, it seems as though he hasn’t […]

New International UFO Museum on hold

For those who doubt that there is a conspiracy in Roswell, New Mexico, I offer the following proof that there is something strange going on in Roswell. But rather than UFOs, it seems like there is a conspiracy to withhold money in Roswell. From UFO events and museums in the area. I blogged a while […]

Spontaneous Human Combustion at Adult Video Store?

I don’t think we’ve ever covered spontaneous human combustion (SHC) here at The Occult Section, not because it isn’t a fascinating phenomena, but mainly because I haven’t heard of too many cases lately. I came across this story in The New York Post, and though the story has some mysterious and cryptic elements to it, […]

Community College Cancels Ghost Hunters Course

As if there’s not enough about the ghost hunting community to feel embarrassed about already, now it turns out that courses in paranormal investigating are being offered…right alongside basket weaving and microwave cookery. Yes, aspiring ghost hunters could (up until recently) take a course at a community college about paranormal investigations. People who call Harrisburg […]

New Bigfoot show on Animal Planet

I loves me some Bigfoot shows, and in my opinion, there just aren’t enough of them on TV. So I was happy to read the new announcement by Animal Planet that they will be airing a new show on Bigfoot. No word yet on when it will air, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that […]

Roswell UFO document: Fact or Fiction?

I mentioned the FBI’s new website “The Vault” last week, and expressed surprise that the supposed UFO revelation (regarding aliens crashing in Roswell, new Mexico) wasn’t a bigger story. But it was all over the web today. I’m not even going to post a link to any specific story, since there are so many of […]

FBI Unveils ‘The Vault,’ Including Unseen 9/11 Records and UFOs

Something interesting that has hit the web this week is that the FBI has upgraded its online database of documents, many due to the Freedom of Information Act, and more than 2,000 new documents are available to be searched for by the public. Dubbed “The Vault,” the database now includes documents on Al Capone, Marylin […]

Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar abducted by aliens?

Ok, I’m not sure how I missed this one. I guess between being wary of April Fool’s “joke” stories and landing an awesome new job (that I start Monday), it flew under my radar. But according to TMZ, Sammy Hagar (the up until now “normal” singer for Van Halen) claims that he was abducted by […]
