Some of the Wildest Conspiracy Theories Out There – Way Out There!

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 12:24 PM

Some of the wildest conspiracy theories have been thrown around in recent years. This article is about some of the most unbelievable of these theories. When you are out shopping at Walmart you may be walking above secret government tunnels. That knock at the door may be the ‘real’ “Men in Black.” Read on and discover all the things you never knew existed.


Tunnels Under Abandoned Walmarts

Not long ago, quite a few Walmart’s were shut down after it was discovered that all the stores had major plumbing issues. The managers of the stores were reportedly blindsided and had no knowledge of those plumbing issues. Due to the unusual circumstances, conspiracy theories quickly ran rampant. The most popular ones simply suggested that Walmart was trying to pull some subtle union-busting tricks, or perhaps was trying to find a better way to deal with underperforming stores. However, some people saw the government’s hand moving behind the scenes. What are these tunnels really for?

The “Real” Men In Black

These ‘government’ men usually wear dark suits, glasses, gloves, and hats—even, by all accounts, in the middle of the summer. They say they are government agents, and they tend to have odd mannerisms.

This has led people to speculate that perhaps the “Men in Black” aren’t humans and aren’t working for the government at all. The stories of these beings run the gamut of the bizarre. Some accounts describe beings who can make a coin disappear without a trace. Others say the men have almost no hair or give off the uncanny valley vibe—almost human, but not quite. Some theorists claim that during the height of the MIB sightings, even the higher-ups in the military issued reports stating that they didn’t know who these people were. Of course, if these men in black were real, it could just be that they were a very secretive part of the government that not all the top brass knew about or they could have been civilians playing their own little game. So, who are the “Men in Black?”

The Columbia Was Actually Destroyed by Alien Invaders

The Columbia disaster was a horrifying tragedy, and the world lost several highly skilled astronauts that day. After a sixteen day mission, the Columbia was reentering the Earth’s atmosphere when everything went wrong. The official report stated that, during takeoff, a rogue piece of insulating foam had put a hole in the ship’s wing. Upon reentering the atmosphere, this hole allowed the heat to spread to the rest of the shuttle, which basically tore it to pieces in the upper atmosphere.

It was a major setback for NASA, and it served as a lesson that even the smallest mistake can lead to catastrophe. However, conspiracy theorists had an entirely different idea on what had happened. They pointed out that strange lights were seen near the Columbia before it exploded. These theorists also helpfully clarified that the craft was too high up in the atmosphere to be shot down from the Earth, which they said leads to only one conclusion: Aliens blew it up. What do you think?

The Government Has Been Openly Allowing Alien Abductions For Decades

While most people might casually argue over whether aliens even exist, some people take it to another level. For the alien experts who believe in regular alien abductions, it’s not a question of whether anyone is being abducted, but by whom and for what reason. One theorist who believes in and investigates alien abductions has noted that many recent abductees claim that the government has a contract with the aliens and is secretly working with them. This contract allows the aliens to abduct people for their research in exchange for technological secrets. If abductions are real, it’s reasonable to assume that the governments would know something about it. There are thousands of satellites orbiting the Earth now, and aliens would have a pretty hard time sneaking past all of them. So, what is the truth?

Some of the Most Strangest Conspiracy Theories Afoot

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 2:00 PM

In modern times, we have been hearing about some pretty strange things. This article is about some of the strangest conspiracy stories… From “reptilian” politicians to chemtrails to HAARP… these are some of the most frightening conspiracies… But how many of them do you think are real?

Phantom Time

Roman Emperor Otto III misdated the Western calendar 297 years because he liked the idea of ruling in the year 1000 AD. Otto, the Pope, and others filled in this “phantom time” with some completely made-up history the Early Middle Ages. If this is true, the current year is 1719.

The Chemtrails Mystery

Since about the mid-’90s, some people, including some more famous believers, believe the cloud-like vapor trails emitted from planes – contrails – are actually chemtrails. Chemtrails supposedly are vaporized chemicals being sprayed into the atmosphere that aim to make the population ill and control the weather. There’s a sizeable campaign in the UK devoted to raising awareness of it.


The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program was a weather-control facility, surveillance center, and mind-control hub. Its official purpose was to analyze the ionosphere. HAARP had a main facility in rural Alaska, with hundreds of large antennae rising from the ground, forming what looked like a “bionic forest”, which seems to have fueled a lot of the conspiracies.

The RAND Conspiracy Theory

The think tank RAND is working on a new world order and basically controls all of us. It has steadily used its influence to replace rights with choices since the 1950s and aims to turn the world into a completely rational one, where love and selflessness no longer exist. It uses manipulative techniques to control dissent and create a “consensus” that works in its favor. It’s part of the wider Illuminati conspiracy, where RAND is a tool to implement propaganda and social control, to help the Illuminati carry out its plans of an authoritarian world government.

The Reptilian Elite

Shape-shifting reptile aliens control Earth by taking on a human form and gaining political power to manipulate humanity. “They” are the royal family, European aristocracy, and various global leaders — including Barack Obama, and probably the Queen of England — and the rest of us are humble followers. This theory is rooted in ideas from the 1888 book The Secret Doctrine, which is a study on the origin of the universe and humanity. It’s not exactly a “fringe” theory either as some twelve million Americans believe the US government is run by lizard people – or reptilians.

Roswell – Fact or Fiction?

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 10:15 AM

One of the greatest conspiracies of living memory took place at Roswell. You must know about it, right? A rancher discovered inexplicable debris in a pasture just outside of Roswell, New Mexico. The debris was said to be a crashed weather balloon, according to the local Air Force base, civilians are convinced that it’s the remains of an extra-terrestrial flying saucer. Nearly 60 years after the discovery of the mysterious debris and U.S. military issued reports citing the incident was actually a top-secret atomic espionage project named “Project Mogul”, some people still believe that we have been visited by otherworldly beings. What do you think? That’s what really matters.

Weather Balloon?

Although officials from the local Air Force claim it was pieces of a weather balloon from Project MOGUL, many embrace a much more interesting theory. The idea of a UFO is always exciting. When the Air Force made unsubstantiated claims and a variety of contradictory statements, there was fuel added to the extra-terrestrial craze. To almost everyone who saw the debris of the crash first-hand or has seen the photographs released in the newspaper, it’s very clear that whatever crashed, was not a weather balloon. But was it something more sinister?

Small Coffins?

Glen Dennis was a mortician in Roswell at the time claims to have been contacted by the military in search of several small coffins. Once he arrived at the base, he claims that things got even stranger. Later, according to Glen, a nurse even informed him that aliens had been recovered. Can the mortician be trusted?

A History of Disorder…

Extra-terrestrial beings have been described in multiple scenarios over Roswell’s history. Through time, an eerily similar account has been given from many different sources. They all speak of seeing small, thin beings with large eyes. These aliens almost sound adorable.

What Was MOGUL?

This was a top-secret atomic espionage project being held at New Mexico’s Alamogordo Air Field. The Air Force used sturdy high-altitude weather balloons to carry low-frequency sound sensors into the tropopause. The basic goal of this project was to send microphones into this sound channel to eavesdrop on nuclear tests as far away as the Soviet Union.

The Disappearance of Flight MH370

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 8:15 AM

One of the great conspiracies of recent years has been the disappearance of flight MH370. Since it’s disappearance there have been hundreds of rumors about the plane. Some say it was taken by North Korea, others say Vietnam took it. Some say the plane can be found on the moon—some even think the plane became invisible. This blog article is all about some of the wackiest, and most plausible reasons for the disappearance of flight MH370. What do you think happened to that plane?

North Korea Took it By Force

It didn’t take long for the most secretive nation in the world to be dragged into the MH370 rumor mill. Shortly after the plane disappeared, several conspiracy theorists questioned whether North Korea might be the “missing link” in the mystery. They pointed to South Korea’s claim that North Korea nearly took out a Chinese plane carrying 220 passengers on 5 March 2014, with Chinese Southern Airlines reportedly passing through the trajectory of a North Korean missile just seven minutes after it was fired. Three days later, MH370 disappeared.

Vladimir Putin Was Behind It

It was surely only a matter of time before Vladimir Putin was accused of being involved in the disappearance of the MH370. However, what is surprising is that the accusation has come from a comparatively reputable source. Jeff Wise, a US science writer who was central to CNN’s coverage of the MH370 last year has come up with the theory based on the so-called “pings” that the plane emitted for several hours after it apparently went missing. Apparently the plane’s hijackers “spoofed” the plane’s navigation data to give off the impression that it flew south, but in fact took the Boeing 777 north and landed it in the Baikonur Cosmodrome, which is leased from Kazakhstan by Russia. One question has been left unanswered. Why Vladimir Putin would want to hijack a plane filled with passengers and land it at a Russian space port.

The First Plane on the Moon

Three weeks after MH370 went missing, that a media outlet announced that the aircraft had been found… Where? They said it was found on the moon. Drawing attention to an unexplained blip on the radar seen close to flight MH370 before it disappeared, the outlet said that… “The simplest explanation is that this is an intergalactic spacecraft that has swallowed the Boeing 777 whole and transported it to the moon for some extra- terrestrial reason.”

Plane Down… Plane Down

Soon after MH370 went missing somebody noticed that the aircraft in question was the 404th Boeing 777 to have come off the production line. The significance? On the internet, a “404 error” message is returned when a web page can’t be found. It was therefore interpreted as a hidden message about the fate of the plane, although what it might signify about its fate was unclear.

Shot Down By The United States?

A former airline director who has been investigating the disappearance of flight MH370 has claimed that the missing plane was shot down by American fighter jets who feared that it had been hijacked and was about to be used to attack the US military base on the Indian Ocean atoll of Diego Garcia.

The Deep, Dark Satanic History of Denver International Airport

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 2:17 PM

For years’ people have been obsessed with Denver International Airport. Why? Well there are those who believe the airport is part of a large conspiracy by the illuminati. The airport itself ran way over budget and nobody can work out why—some believe there are secret tunnels and warehouses beneath the buildings—others believe the airport is a sign of things to come… but what is the truth?

Swastika Runway?

An aerial view of the runways at Denver International Airport shows that they resemble the shape of a swastika. This is not a typical formation for an airport’s runways. However, an airport representative has said that the runways are designed that way so that they can be used simultaneously no matter the weather condition, since none of the runways overlap.

The Obscene Cost of Building

When Denver International Airport opened on Feb. 28, 1995, construction had fallen 16 months behind schedule, and $2 billion over budget. The final cost of the Denver airport was $4.8 billion, which is a lot of money. People wondered what it had gone toward. The airport itself is 35,000 acres, which is almost twice as large as the next biggest U.S. airport.

A Dedication To A Secret Society

The airport was dedicated on March 19, 1994, and a capstone was placed inside the airport to memorialize it. This dedication stone displays the Masonic symbol of a compass with a capital G inside. Underneath the symbol, the “New World Airport Commission” is credited with helping fund and build the airport.

What is the “New World Airport Commission”? Airport officials have said that it was a commission for the new “world airport,’ but the wording calls to mind the New World Order conspiracy. New World Order conspiracists believe that there has been a small group of powerful people working together in secret throughout history toward establishing a single all-powerful global government.

The Masonic symbol ties into this conspiracy. Freemasonry is a very real secret fraternal society that’s allegedly the largest in the world and may have existed as far back as the Middle Ages. Since this secret society has had many powerful members throughout history, people have long been suspicious that the Freemasons were looking to seize power. Perhaps they are involved in trying to establish the New World Order?

Not helping things: Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that if you add up the numbers in the airport’s dedication date, you get 33, which is reportedly the highest level of Freemasonry.

The Murals

One of the most startling things in the Denver airport are the murals that line the walls on Level 5 of the Jeppesen Terminal. Many think that the murals, painted by artist Leo Tanguma, tell the story of apocalyptic biowarfare destroying the world as we know it, with the New World Order taking over in its place.

The Mustang Statue That Kills

Something truly creepy is the blue horse statue outside the airport itself. Titled Mustang, but nicknamed “Blucifer” by conspiracy theorists, this statue is 32 feet tall and 9,000 pounds. Its eyes glow red at all hours of the day and night, causing some to speculate that the statue is meant to represent the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse from the biblical book of Revelations. The Fourth Horseman specifically represents Death.

The creepiest part is that the statue’s artist, Luis Jiménez, was actually killed by the statue. In 2006, before the statue had been completed, a piece of the statue fell on him and severed an artery in his leg.

Are Our Politicians Really Aliens?

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 8:01 AM

There have been conspiracy theories since the beginning of time. I’d like to look at some of the biggest political conspiracies of all time—from around the world. Sit back and discover some of the biggest secrets in the world—that may, or may not have even happened.

British Prime Minister Harold Wilson Was A Secret Soviet agent

Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn is thought to have claimed that Wilson was a KGB spy. He further claimed that Hugh Gaitskell was assassinated by the KGB so that he could be replaced as Labor leader by Harold Wilson. Furthermore, former MI5 officer Peter Wright claimed in his memoirs – Spycatcher – that he had been told that Wilson was a Soviet agent. MI5 repeatedly investigated Wilson over the course of several years before conclusively deciding that he had no relationship with the KGB.

Aliens and Roswell

The event that kick-started more than a half century of conspiracy theories surrounding unidentified flying objects. Something did crash at Roswell, New Mexico, sometime before July 7, 1947 and – at first – the US authorities stated explicitly that this was a flying saucer or disk. Numerous witnesses reported seeing metallic debris scattered over a wide area and at least one reported seeing a blazing craft crossing the sky shortly before it crashed. The conspiracy theory has been fanned by the US military repeatedly changing its story. Within hours of the army telling reporters that it had recovered a crashed saucer, senior officers insisted that the only thing that had fallen from the sky had been a weather balloon.

Did Nasa Fake The Moon Landings?

Some of the theories surrounding this subject are that the Apollo astronauts did not land on the Moon; Nasa and possibly others intentionally deceived the public into believing the landings did occur by manufacturing, destroying, or tampering with evidence, including photos, telemetry tapes, transmissions, and rock samples; and that Nasa and possibly others continue to actively participate in the conspiracy to this day.

The Almighty Illuminati And The New World Order

A conspiracy in which powerful and secretive groups are plotting to rule mankind with a single world government. Many historical events are said to have been engineered by these groups with one goal – the New World Order (NWO). The groups use political finance, social engineering, mind control, and fear-based propaganda to achieve their aims. Signs of the NWO are said to be the pyramid on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, strange and disturbing murals at Denver International Airport, and pentagrams in city plans. International organizations such as the World Bank, the IMF, the European Union, the United Nations, and NATO are listed as founding organizations of the New World Order.

Some Truths Behind The Assassination of the King of Camelot.

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 11:34 AM


The Kennedy assassination is still considered, by many, to be the ultimate conspiracy. New facts come to light all the time—some of them are disproven—some are never proven either way. What happened to the President is still a mystery—but this blog article is one that has been on my mind for some time. I’d like for us to look at some of the more unusual facts about the assassination.

The Limousine

The limousine Kennedy was riding in at the time of his assassination was a 1961 Lincoln Continental four-door convertible code-named the X-100. After it was examined for evidence following the shooting in Dallas, the X-100 was overhauled, cleaned and returned to service at the White House in mid-1964. It continued to carry presidents until early 1977 and is now on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.

War is Hell

Oswald was arrested in a Texas movie theatre, less than 90 minutes after Kennedy’s shooting. The film that was screening was called War Is Hell! It was billed as being about “Iron guts guys in action who kill for medals… dames… or just to stay alive!”.


Vice-president Lyndon Johnson told CBS newsman Walter Cronkite in 1969 that he did not discount the possibility Kennedy’s death was the work of a foreign power: “I can’t honestly say that I’ve ever been completely relieved of the fact that there might have been international connections,” he said. Johnson requested the comment be removed from the interview for national security reasons and it only aired after his death.

The Oswald Charge

Oswald was charged with killing Kennedy and a police officer named John Tippit. On November 24, Oswald was himself shot by nightclub operator Jack Ruby while being transferred from the city jail to Dallas county jail. Oswald was taken to the same Parkland Hospital which had received Kennedy less than 48 hours earlier, but was pronounced dead a short time later. Ruby was convicted of Oswald’s murder in 1964 despite a plea of insanity. Ruby developed lung cancer in prison and died in January 1967, also at Parkland Hospital.

Unlucky Presidents

Kennedy was the fourth US president to be assassinated. Others were Abraham Lincoln (1865), James Garfield (1881), and William McKinley (1901). America’s 29th president, Warren G Harding, later revealed to have been a corrupt philanderer, was widely rumoured to have been poisoned by his wife in 1923. Coincidentally, Lincoln and Kennedy, who were elected 100 years apart, were both succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson. Andrew Johnson became America’s 17th president in 1865, and Lyndon Johnson became the 36th president in 1963.


In 1964, the report from the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, chaired by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren (the “Warren Commission”) found the shots which killed Kennedy were fired by Oswald, and that he acted alone. It also found Oswald wounded Texas governor John Connally, and killed Tippit while evading arrest. Earl Warren was a former Republican Governor of California, and the GOP’s 1948 vice-presidential nominee.

Other Theories

Alternate theories about the events of November 22, 1963 persist. The 1979 House inquiry fueled theories of a second gunman and a wider conspiracy. Before his death in 2007, one of the Watergate burglars, former CIA Agent E. Howard Hunt, alleged Lyndon Johnson was involved in a conspiracy to kill Kennedy. Historian James Reston Jr says Oswald’s intended target was Governor Connally, not President Kennedy. Perhaps most intriguingly, new analysis of the graphic home movie footage of the assassination shot by Abraham Zapruder has concluded that at one point his camera stopped, crucial frames were missing and that the first of three bullets fired by Oswald was deflected by a street sign.

The TOP 5 Conspiracy Theories

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 10:33 AM

When it comes to conspiracies there are certain ones that are above the rest. This blog article is all about the biggest conspiracies ever to become publicly known. From time travel, to mobsters, to Presidents this list has them all—and you may want to research these topics further.


The Philadelphia Experiment

In 1943, a US Navy destroyer was actually made invisible and teleported from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Norfolk, Virginia, in the Philadelphia Experiment or “Project Rainbow”. While records in the Operational Archives Branch of the Naval Historical Center have been examined, no proof confirms the event. Obviously, laws of nature would make the likelihood that the USS Eldridge was rendered invisible fairly slim.

Nonetheless, once the generators were turned on, the massive electromagnetic fields started to build up a fog that concealed the ship from view until the fog itself disappeared, taking the Eldridge with it. The joy of success soon dissipated, as the crew was found to be disoriented and nauseous. Months later, a final test rendered some sailors violently ill. Several went “missing.” Others lost their marbles while an unlikely lot were fused to the metal in the ship’s structure.

If this seems incredible, remember that it was also in the 1940s that the power and destruction of the atomic bomb was unleashed on innocent civilians.

Jimmy Hoffa

Jimmy Hoffa earned a reputation amongst peers as a tough and effective negotiator. After negotiating the union’s first national contract with trucking companies, the Teamsters Union membership grew to more than two million under his leadership. With time, this raised the ire of many, as Hoffa became the subject of many government investigations and prosecutions that ultimately led to his imprisonment in 1967.

Hoffa left prison in 1971, but disappeared four years later. The last time he was spotted was at Machus Red Fox restaurant in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and we have no reason to think that it was the food that killed him. Eight years later, he was finally declared legally dead.

Hoffa took on Big Business when it wasn’t hip, only dangerous. While many respected and revered him for what he contributed to social and employment causes, many other more powerful people sought to put him into “early retirement.”

Big Tobacco’s Big Denial

The list of companies that are socially irresponsible for either hiding facts turning a blind eye or simply ravaging foreign lands just increases as the days go by. But the credit for this list must go to Big Tobacco.

For years, cigarette companies essentially made products that, when used as recommended, would kill you. After the revelation was made that cigarettes were bad for you, Big Tobacco has tried to cover up one thing after another. And while cigarette smoking has reduced, the number of tobacco-related deaths never ceases to go up.

What does not help is that between greedy lobbyists and shallow politicians (is this not a tautology?), no end seems to be in sight. What they could do is replace all of the tobacco farms with hemp and use this as a natural substitute and more natural source of paper, rope and everything else possible. Just don’t hold your breath — whatever’s left of it anyway.

Martin Luther King Jr.

In recent years, Bill Clinton asked Janet Reno to review “new evidence” presented by the family of Martin Luther King Jr. about his assassination 30 years ago. The King family claims that convicted assassin James Earl Ray, who died recently, was just a fall guy caught up in a sweeping conspiracy that included then President Lyndon Johnson, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, J. Edgar Hoover, several army units, as well as organized crime figures.

Whether there is any truth to these claims or whether Ray’s defense lawyer fabricated them remains to be seen. Surely, the original account of King’s murder was rushed by the bureaucrats at the FBI, but more rhetoric should emphasize whether or not Ray was the murderer and whether he was helped by violent white supremacists or government agencies.

To this day, numerous people could be guilty of his assassination.

John F. Kennedy

On November 22, 1963, US Democratic President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas. While initial reports named the shooter as Lee Harvey Oswald, several events have since questioned this. Within days, Jack Ruby shot and killed Oswald in front of hundreds of people — obviously to shut him up.

Moreover, several people still wonder what involvement the Kennedy brothers played in Marilyn’s death and ask whether JFK’s death was a result of a settling of accounts. In recent years, Oliver Stone’s take on the assassination raised even more questions, as JFK could have been the target of various individuals and groups.

Even More Doppelganger Sightings

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 8:11 AM

We are taking a break this week from the BEK encounters to talk about another strange series of occurrences that are taking place across the United States. Doppelgangers. We have already shared some of these stories—which have been very popular with readers. These are situations when an unsuspecting person runs into a carbon copy of themselves. Nobody really knows the truth about doppelgangers—but take a look at this encounter and see what you think about it.

It almost felt like a dream. I woke up to my dog, Lucy, barking. She was upright on the bed where my husband and I were sleeping with our 7 month old daughter, staring at our door like an unknown stranger was out there rummaging around. I thought she was just freaking out over a house noise. We’d only had her for 3 months and she was still a puppy. It could have been anything- our roommate, a creak from the house settling, the awnings moving outside in the breeze- I wasn’t too concerned initially.

I decided the best bet would be to open the door and show her nothing was there. It sounds a bit silly, but it’s what we do with our daughter when she gets scared, and I figured it should work with a puppy, too. I opened the door and she raced to the front door. She stood there, snarling at the door. It was an angry, violent growl, one I had never heard her make before. I looked groggily at her and opened the baby gate blocking the doorway, planning to open the door and show her everything was OK.

The second my hand reached for the deadbolt, Lucy went wild. She started barking and jumped toward me, and when I touched the metal, she suddenly changed her temper. She whimpered, almost like she was afraid and backing down. As her mannerism changed, so did mine- I wasn’t calm anymore. My heart was racing and sinking at the same time. I had been flooded with a mixture of fear and dread. I looked through the peephole. I can’t explain why I looked, but I did. Outside were two kids.

One was just a smidgen shorter than me, and didn’t look much younger. I’m 21, and she looked to be 16 or 17. She was slender and pale. Her hair was a light shade of honey blonde, and she wore it long, about mid-back, with long, thin, blunt bangs in the front that covered most of her eyes. She wore jeans, a light-wash that’s popular right now, and a thin-looking olive colored pullover style hoodie. She held the hand of a small girl, who looked to be around 3 or 4, in the same style jeans and a button-down ivory cardigan. The smaller one looked at the floor shyly, but had the same shade of hair, tied back in a ponytail. She held a stuffed toy under her free arm, and it was identical to one my daughter has- as was their style of dress. Had it not been for the feeling of overwhelming dread and fear, I probably would have asked these children in and given them some tea or hot chocolate to get them out of the bitter cold. Something about them seemed off. At this point, I hadn’t made any noise- I hadn’t shushed the dog or grumbled, nothing- I hadn’t turned on any lights, these kids had no indicators I was at the door. The older one spoke.

She had a voice that was mature, confidant, strong, and completely accentless. She held her head tilted downward, and I couldn’t see her eyes. She said “We have to use your phone.” I stood frozen in fear. How did she know I was there? She raised her head to face me directly, and that was when I saw her eyes. There was a reason I couldn’t see them through her bangs before- they were black, or midnight blue, or a dark, dark purple- they were otherworldly. she said. “Our mother is worried.”

As someone who has always been interested in creepy stories, I knew what she was the second she looked at me through the door. I have never been one to believe in these things- as a staunch Atheist and skeptic when it comes to the paranormal, I had written off many a ghost story from friends and family members eager to tell their tale. I didn’t believe it. Still, I couldn’t rationalize my way out of this- I was standing with nothing but a thin wooden door between me and a Black Eyed Kid. There was no questioning what was right in front of me.

I did not answer her. Slowly and silently, I backed away from the door, Lucy still cowering at my ankles. She kept talking. “Just let us in to use your phone.” I took another step back, and with that step, the tone changed. At first, she seemed polite. When I took that second step back, she became commanding, almost hostile. We’re not going to hurt you. If we wanted to do that, we would have broken in. I’ll ask again. May we come in and use your phone?” Lucy snarled at the door, and I inched backward, though something inside me seemed to be slowly pulling me back toward the door. It wasn’t a physical pulling so much as a subconcious need to go back and let them in.

I got to my room, covered up the window, locked the door, and sat there in the dim light of the nightlight. I heard her call me back to the door once more, and then quiet. I didn’t go back to sleep that night, and I haven’t slept right since. I know from reading about them that BEK’s can’t just come in without permission. I know they haven’t hurt anyone, but I still fear I’ll be the exception. When I told my husband, he said it was just a dream. He keeps telling me to forget it, but this lingering feeling of sadness, this dread when the house is silent at night, this fear of a knock at the door… this tells me otherwise.

More Doppelgangers

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 8:44 AM

We are taking a break this week from the BEK encounters to talk about another strange series of occurrences that are taking place across the United States. Doppelgangers. We have already shared some of these stories—which have been very popular with readers. These are situations when an unsuspecting person runs into a carbon copy of themselves. Nobody really knows the truth about doppelgangers—but take a look at this encounter and see what you think about it.


In the summer of 1978, I was out of school for the school holidays. I was eleven years old, or so and I had been in my room playing when I went to my family’s kitchen. We lived in rural Idaho. My mother, father and I lived with my grandmother. My grandmother was sitting in her rocker with a strange, puzzled expression on her face and asked me, “What do you need a dollar for?” I knew nothing about wanting a dollar, and I asked her what she was talking about. She said that I had come downstairs and had asked her for some money. When I said that I hadn’t she believed me. She said that sometimes ‘strange things happen—and that sometimes things can look, act and feel like humans, but they aren’t.”

After that she grasped me and held me in her arms. We prayed together, and I truly felt a bond with a grandmother who had never been that interested in me. As we hugged the room felt deathly cold and the front and back doors flew open with a huge gust of wind. I will never forget the incident. My grandmother was a very wise woman. I still wonder to this day who, what and why something would want to impersonate me? Sometimes I think it was just a spirit trying to help me bond with my grandmother—other times I think it’s something more sinister. It never happened again though, and I am thankful for that. What do you make of that?
