The conspiracy theorists were certain that the Roman Catholic church had faked 300 years of history, and this became known as the Phantom Time Hypothesis. On the surface they had some compelling facts on their side. In the 1500′s, the Roman Catholic church noticed that Easter was occurring later and later in the spring over the centuries. If something wasn’t done Easter was going to slide right into summer, and eventually the fall. Something had to be done.
(11) Thraxus Ares - FALSIFICAREA ISTORIEI NU ESTE SE PARE, DOAR O... Witches of Cornwall. Macabre evidence of age-old spells surfaces in an archaeologist's front yard Archaeologist Jacqui Wood holds a fragment of a cauldron unearthed from a buried spring-fed pool near her home.
This and other artifacts she has found point to a long history of ritual and witchcraft. (Manuel Cohen) Over the centuries, many in the British Isles have appealed to witches in times of need--to cure a toothache, concoct a love potion, or curse a neighbor. Witchcraft, the rituals of a number of pagan belief systems, was thought to offer control of the world through rites and incantations. Wood's home is in the hamlet of Saveock Water in Cornwall, a county tucked in the far southwest corner of the country. When I visit Saveock Water it is raining, which adds to its unearthly atmosphere. Wood was excited but busy with other projects and left the find undisturbed for a few years. While digging a hole for another project, Wood discovered a late Mesolithic clay platform in her field. Share. Dancing Plague of 1518. Engraving of Hendrik Hondius portrays three women affected by the plague.
Work based on original drawing by Peter Brueghel, who supposedly witnessed a subsequent outbreak in 1564 in Flanders The Dancing Plague (or Dance Epidemic) of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg, Alsace (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) in July 1518. Numerous people took to dancing for days without rest, and, over the period of about one month, some of those affected died of heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion. Events The outbreak began in July 1518, when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg. This lasted somewhere between four to six days. Historical documents, including "physician notes, cathedral sermons, local and regional chronicles, and even notes issued by the Strasbourg city council" are clear that the victims danced. It is not known why these people danced, some even to their deaths.

The Tanganyika laughter epidemic of 1962 was an outbreak of mass hysteria – or mass psychogenic illness (MPI) – rumored to have occurred in or near the village of Kashasha on the western coast of Lake Victoria in the modern nation of Tanzania (formerly Tanganyika) near the border of Kenya. The laughter epidemic began on January 30, 1962, at a mission-run boarding school for girls in Kashasha.
The laughter started with three girls and spread haphazardly throughout the school, affecting 95 of the 159 pupils, aged 12–18. Symptoms lasted from a few hours to 16 days in those affected. The teaching staff were not affected but reported that students were unable to concentrate on their lessons. The school was forced to close down on March 18, 1962. The school from which the epidemic sprang was sued; the children and parents transmitted it to the surrounding area. See also References Jump up ^ Jeffries, Stuart (November 21, 2007).

The Bosnian Pyramid Valley In 2005, archaeologist Semir Osmanagich discovered several structures covered by topsoil and vegetation. An international scholar of worldwide pyramidal structures, he recognized the manufactured angles and coordinates that characterize pyramids on five continents. Subsequent, excavations and scientific testing of artifacts have dated several structures from 12,000 to 34,000 B.C. Intentionally hidden, the covered pyramids were considered to be natural hills. The Ica Burial Stones of Peru. Ica stones. An Ica stone depicting dinosaurs.
The Ica stones are a collection of andesite stones found in Ica Province, Peru that bear a variety of diagrams. Some of them have depictions of dinosaurs and what is alleged to be advanced technology, and these are recognised as modern curiosities or hoaxes. From the 1960s Javier Cabrera Darquea collected and popularized the stones, obtaining many of them from a farmer named Basilio Uschuya. Uschuya, after claiming them to be real ancient artifacts, admitted to creating the carvings he had sold and said he produced a patina by baking the stone in cow dung. Description
