Ultimate Survival Guide: Dealing With Werewolves

If Hollywood has taught us anything about werewolves, it's that they are scary, dangerous, and are often teenagers who like to play basketball. These lycanthropes are humans who have the ability to transform into wolf-like creatures during a full moon. Werewolves have superhuman strength as well as an incredibly developed sense of smell and hearing.

In other words, werewolves are not recommended as pets for children under the age of 12.

Of course, the best way to avoid a werewolf encounter is through prevention. Since a full moon usually occurs only once a month, this should be easy. However, at some time or another, you may find yourself walking down the street one night and, before you realize that there's a full moon, a hungry werewolf may already have sunk his fangs into your neck. This can certainly ruin your evening.

According to legend, the only way to kill a werewolf is by shooting it with a silver bullet. Unfortunately, this method was devised back in the day when the p…

Debunked: "Black-Eyed Children"

Much has been written on the myth of the "black-eyed children"- a favorite topic among paranormal researchers and ghost story aficionados.  According to legend, these creepy-looking kiddies with large coal-colored eyes pop up at night, tapping on windows and scaring the bejeezus out of the people who encounter them.

In most accounts, these black-eyed children seek permission to enter your home or car, asking to use a phone or for some other favor.  In practically every case, these mysterious individuals appear at night.  Witnesses claim that one look into their black eyes invokes a strong feeling of horror, and sightings of these creepy kiddies have been reported in virtually every corner of the globe.

Some paranormal researchers, such as David Weatherly (who has recently published a book on this very topic), believe that "black-eyed children" are demonic in origin.  Others believe that these children are alien in origin.  Still others insist that they are inter-dim…

Genetic Researcher Claims Bigfoot is Real

After a five year project studying the DNA obtained from 100 samples which may have come from Bigfoot, veterinarian Melba S. Ketchum believes that she has found evidence which suggests that the mythical cryptid exists.

At team of researchers at DNA Diagnostics in Nacogdoches, Texas, under Ketchum's direction, believes that Bigfoot may be a human relative which developed over 15,000 years ago as a hybrid between humans and an unknown primate, states a story published by the Huffington Post on November 30.

Ketchum's research suggests that Bigfoot is descended from the impregnation of a female human by an unidentified primate.  The team claims to have discovered three nuclear genomes belonging to the creature known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot.  The research team was comprised of experts in the fields of genetics, forensics, pathology, and other related disciplines.

While this is encouraging news for Bigfoot believers, Ketchum's study raises many questions.  Under what circumstance…
