For more than 40 years, scientists have tried to figure out what's causing large parts of Canada , particularly the Hudson Bay region, to be "missing" gravity . In other words, gravity in the Hudson Bay area and surrounding regions is lower than it is in other parts of the world, a phenomenon first identified in the 1960s when the Earth's global gravity fields were being charted. Two theories have been proposed to account for this anomaly. But before we go over them, it's important to first consider what creates gravity. At a basic level, gravity is proportional to mass.

Michael Dick of the UK had not seen his long-lost daughter Liza for 10 years. Why were they estranged? Your guess is as good as ours. All we know is that Michael went nuts looking for her. Where it Gets Weird:
We like to feel superior to the people who lived centuries ago, what with their shitty mud huts and curing colds by drilling a hole in their skulls. But we have to give them credit: They left behind some artifacts that have left the smartest of modern scientists scratching their heads. For instance, you have the following enigmas that we believe were created for no other purpose than to fuck with future generations. The Voynich Manuscript
Dr. Ian Stevenson is perhaps the most famous and respected researcher of reincarnation. In fact, in 1977, in the Journal of Mental and Nervous Disease, an entire publication was devoted to his work which cited Stevenson as being "a methodical, careful, even cautious, investigator, whose personality is on the obsessive side...Either he is making a colossal mistake, or he will be known . . . as 'the Galileo of the 20th century." One of Dr. Stevenson's most famous cases of "verified" reincarnation dealt with a little girl by the name of Swarnlata Mishra who, at the age of three, began giving details of a life lived by someone by the name of Biya Pathak.
Jim Templeton's photograph. The (also known as the and the ) refers to a photograph taken by Jim Templeton in 1964 at Burgh Marsh, situated near Burgh by Sands and overlooking the Solway Firth in Cumbria , England . Templeton claims the photograph shows a background figure wearing a space suit and insists that he did not see anyone present when the photograph was taken.
The Importance Of Nonsense One of the greatest surprises of modern molecular biology has been the discovery of "split genes" in higher forms of life. In the chromosomes of lowly bacteria, genes march along one behind the other, but in more complex organisms the genes are separated by segments of genetic material that apparently have nothing to do with the manufacture of protein.
Is there a science of anomalies? Westrum and Truzzi term their paper a "bibliographical introduction" to anomalies. Indeed, the article is laced with references to the great classics on scientific anomalies and worth reading for this aspect alone. But the authors go farther.
Bpm Equals Dowsing It is remarkable that this article appears in a reputable scientific journal. Williamson was stimulated to write about dowsing by apparent recent Russian successes with BPM (Bio-Physical Method) in locating minerals. BPM has created quite a stir in the USSR, with all the scientific trappings of conferences and journal papers. The Russians evidently use BPM in conjunction with aerial photogeological surveys in pinpointing mineral deposits.
Stacked Deck In Esp Experiment Balanovski and Taylor have assumed that the many purported extrasensory phenomena are very likely effected by electromagnetic forces -- the only known action-at-a-distance force they believe could be involved. Therefore, they assembled a wide variety of very sensitive electromagnetic instruments (antennas, EM probes, skin electrodes, magnetometers, etc.) and tried to find electromagnetic fields associated with people claiming paranormal abilities. Despite the high sensitivities of the apparatus, no ESP-connected electromagnetic fields were detected. (Balanovski, E., and Taylor, J.G.; "Can Electromagnetism Account for Extra-Sensory Phenomena?" Nature , 276:64, 1978.)
Inscribed Stone From Tennessee Necropolis The pictured stone was found during the early 1890s in an extensive cemetery near Nashville. The stone's back was hollowed out like a cupstone, while its front was inscribed with symbols. Barry Fell considers the symbols Libyan, pre100 A.D. style.
A Redshift Undermines The Dogma Of An Expanding Universe Halton Arp has closely studied the galaxy NGC-1199, which is the brightest member of a small cluster of galaxies. One of its companions is a galaxy so dense that it appears to be a star. This compact object sports a circular shadow and seems to be silhouetted against the central galaxy NGC-1199.
South Of The Bermuda Triangle On August 4, 1944, the 85-foot staysail schooner Island Queen departed Grenada bound for St. Vincent, carrying 75 passengers to a wedding. The black-hulled Providence Mark accompanied the Island Queen , and a friendly rivalry kept them neck and neck, often only a half mile apart.
Out-of-the-body traveller exerts no influence Many out-of-the-body travellers describe remote scenes observed during their ad ventures and some are credited with registering their presences on instruments and animals. Tests with a subject using "human detector" instruments a quarter mile away showed no consistent results while the subject was "out-of the-body." A kitten in the area gave no sign of a presence. Although the subject described some of the remote targets accurately, the results did not differ from chance. (Morris, Robert L., et al; "Studies of Communication during Out-of-Body Experiences," American Society for Psychical Research, Journal , 72:1, 1978.)
