I know y'all remember the movie, Men In Black, with Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. Well, all the continued news coverage of the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter debacle that we've been getting here in North Carolina got me thinking.
Now hang with me y'all. I know you don't see the tie in between these two things yet, but I promise you will.
This story of their affiar and the child they conceived was just sitting there waiting to be discovered. From all accounts, any one of the major news organizations could have followed the trails these two idiots left. Did any of them uncover this life altering, politics altering story? Hell no. It took what is commonly referred to as a trashy tabloid to do it. It took a supermarket tabloid to throw the truth in our faces.
Here it comes. Here's the tie in.
Do you remember the point in Men In Black when Tommy Lee Jones' character told Will Smith's character that the only newspapers out there that told the truth were the supermarket tabloids? Well, here we have a real life example of that. And, that got me thinking. Do you ever wonder if those out there, supernatural things that only the tabloids talk about are real?
Yeah, I know. I have a really screwed up thought process...LOL.
Now, I'm not saying I believe the tabloids. I don't think there are two-headed alien babies left in every cabbage patch and I don't believe Nadia Suleman got her stomach that flat after octuplets without surgical help. I'm just saying there seem to be a lot of things science can't explain.
What paranormal or supernatural things do you wonder about? Do you think all the stories about UFOs are bunk or do you think there is an element of truth? What conspiracy theories do you think have some level of merit and which are utter bullshit?
I know I think UFOs exist. When my mom was in her early 20s, her family was on there way to Japan. Towards the tail end of the flight, my mom saw something off the wing of their plane that definitely did NOT fit any known aircraft parameters. My sister has also had a classic "lights in the sky" UFO experience. Before you just dismiss these as people not knowing what they are looking at, both my mom and my sis grew up around Air Force bases and know what planes lights look like and these were NOT plane lights.
How about reincarnation? Now, I don't think that all reincarnation stories, like some of Shirley MacLain's wackier stories, are true. I do think there may be some souls out there that are reincarnated...or there would have to be another paranormal explanation for the things that happen to these people. A person near and dear to me lived over in Europe years ago. One time when they were doing the touristy thing and visiting sites with historical significance, this individual had a very odd experience. While on the way to a specific battlefield, this person started having vivid images pop into his head. These images were like memories. He was seeing actual scenes from the battles that occurred there during World War II. These scenes were from a combatants point of view. This particular battle was not one that was famous. It was not one that was taught about in American schools. Because these images were so vivid and seemed so real, this person went on a research mission when they got home. He ended up having to look in German books and resources to find the information he needed but, it turned out that everything he saw in his visions had actually happened during that battle. Definitely qualifies as a thing that makes you go hmmmm!
And, finally, people in my family have learned to pay attention when our inner voice is screaming at us to either do something or don't do something. It's usually not good at all when we ignore that voice. A very small example of this occurred when we were moving back to the US from overseas. We had a dog that my dad went jogging with every night. This one night, my dad was getting a weird feeling. For some reason, he was getting a feeling that they should skip their evening run. But, on this occasion, he shook off the feeling ans decided to go running because the dog was so full of energy. While they were out running, our dog Tinkerbell got hit by a car and died. This is just one example of many, many times that a person in my family (my dad, me, my sister, my niece) have gotten a feeling or a message (for lack of a better word) that has proven to be true.
So, once again, What paranormal or supernatural things do you wonder about? Do you think all the stories about UFOs are bunk or do you think there is an element of truth? What conspiracy theories do you think have some level of merit and which are utter bullshit? Come on and sahre with us.
