Hidden images found in 500-year-old Mexican codex

THE so-called Codex Selden – one of the many pre-Hispanic manuscripts left behind by a “lost civilization” that lived in Mexico before the Spanish conquest – had puzzled scientists for years.

For nearly five decades, most of the contents of the deerskin manuscript had been obscured by a layer of plaster. This, along with the fragility of the material and the inability to see the manuscript through traditional methods, has thwarted all efforts to decipher the mysterious document.

But a new imaging technique has for the first time allowed historians to peer through the material on top to reveal a…

'Poltergeist' case baffles police

A MOTHER and her son were forced to move out of their home after a campaign of terror by a 'poltergeist'.

Police officers attended a house in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, on August 8 and 9, following reports of disturbances at the property.

While at the home, they reportedly witnessed paranormal activity including clothes flying across the room, flickering lights and even a 'levitating Chihuahua'.

The family dog, which was playing in the garden, was discovered on top of a seven foot high hedge by officers with more than 20 years experience in the forces according to the Daily Record.

Are We Living in a Simulated Universe?

THE YEAR is 2050 and super-intelligent robots have taken over the planet – except you have no idea, because you're living in a computer simulation, depicting what life was like in 2015.

Everything you see and touch right now has been created by robotic overlords who are using humanity as playthings in their virtual game.

That's the radical theory put forward by a number of scientists over the years, who claim there is a possibility that our world as we know it is fake.

It may sound ridiculous, but this 'simulation argument' is being taken seriously by physicists who say…

Magic spells unearthed in Serbia

ARCHAEOLOGISTS are trying to decipher magic spells etched into tiny rolls of gold and silver that they found alongside skeletons of humans buried almost 2,000 years ago.

"The alphabet is Greek that much we know. The language is Aramaic – it's a Middle Eastern mystery to us," Miomir Korac, chief archaeologist at the site in eastern Serbia, told Reuters.

The skeletons were found at the foot of a massive coal-fired power station where searches are being carried out before another unit of the electricity plant is built on the site of an ancient Roman city.

Mexico’s Creepy ‘Island of Dolls’

Among the many chinampas (artificial islands) dotting what was once Lake Xochimilco near Mexico City, one island in particular has turned over the decades into a creepy tourist destination – the La Isla de las Munecas, the Island of Dolls.

La Isla de las Munecas is perhaps the most infamous of Xochimilco’s chinampas due to its bizarre history and status as one of the spookiest, most haunted places in Mexico.

The island’s haunting story began during the 1950’s when Julian Santana Barrera, a loner who had made the chinampas his home, supposedly witnessed a young girl drown in a nearby…
