General : The names bond....scared bond!

Posted by Founder on 25-Aug-2006 21:45 (2295 reads)

JITTERY crew on the new James Bond film have refused to get on a stunt jumbo jet — because it’s HAUNTED.

Scared Casino Royale workers fear the 747 is protected by the spirit of a passenger who died from a heart attack on board.

They say the lights and warning systems have come on during filming — even though the jet has NO POWER.

Crew also claim to have seen the woman’s ghost gliding up and down the aisles of the 30-year-old plane.

One set worker said: “We were asked to stay on it overnight for one scene, but several of the crew refused.

“Some won’t get on board at all because of the ghost. It’s been a real problem.” The de-commissioned £2million former South African Airways jumbo will appear in several scenes.

In one, 007 Daniel Craig, 38, tries to stop a villain ramming it.

The plane is kept at Dunsfold Aerodrome at Cranleigh, Surrey. Spokesman David McAllister said: “I cannot discuss the film but I am aware of the plane being haunted. Everyone knows the story.”

General : Phantom Driver

Posted by Founder on 14-Aug-2006 22:01 (1988 reads)

My husband and I went on vacation in South Carolina in May of 2006. We were at a place called Homestead. We took this picture. If you enlarge it, you will see a man in the driver's seat. And there is also a ghost getting in the passenger seat as well. I didn't see this when I took the picture. I think it is amazing that ghosts can be right in front of you and you not even know it.

General : Rosslyn Chapel Ghosts

Posted by Founder on 06-Aug-2006 21:23 (1938 reads)

ACTORS rehearsing at Midlothian's Rosslyn Chapel for a Festival play claim to have spotted two ghosts in the famous building.

A cast member reported seeing a "fairy-like" figure in the grounds of the Chapel, while another said they spotted a person inside the building itself.

The actors are preparing to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream, which is being produced by the Roslin-based Nonsense Room Productions.

Producer Simon Beattie, who also works as a tour guide at the Chapel and appeared as an extra in Tom Hanks' blockbuster film The Da Vinci Code, said strange sightings were not unusual at Rosslyn Chapel.

"Last year we were rehearsing for a Fringe show, and when I was locking up I heard a child's voice in the crypt and so I shouted down that I was locking up," he said.

"When I went down there however, there was no-one there.

"We've no idea who the ghosts might be but it certainly seems that they are budding thespians and they have certainly livened up our rehearsals."

General : Djinn......The true Story?

Posted by Founder on 10-Jul-2006 17:51 (5782 reads)

In the western world we have grown up with the concept of demons and devils – the evil beings of the spirit world, according to traditional Christian beliefs.

Other religions around the world have their spirit beings, too, of course. In Islam, the djinn are a race of spirit beings that can be good or evil. (Djinn, or jinn, is the origin of the more familiar word "genie" in English.)

As we learned in the recent article "Exorcism is Islam," Muslims believe that evil djinn can sometimes possess human beings, as some Christians believe demons can possess people.

But what are the djinn? Our Muslim contact, who we identify only as M.M., and who provided the video of the exorcism, answers questions about these spirit beings.

Q: How were the djinn created?

A: Verses of the Koran and the Hadiths show unambiguously that the djinns were created of fire without smoke. According to Ibn ' Abbas, the expression "without smoke" means "end of the flame." Other scientists think that this expression means the purest of fires. What's important to know, quite simply, is that that the djinn were created of fire and therefore have a constitution completely different from ours.
The djinn were created before man. While the djinn were made of fire, man was made of clay and angels created of light.
In this way, the djinn are invisible. So if they are invisible how do we know they exist? Many things exist that our eyes do not see, but their effects are perceptible, such as the air and electrical current.
Also, this word was reported by Allah himself, and Allah does not lie.

Q: Where do the djinn live?

A: The djinn prefer to live in places not inhabited by man, such as deserts and wastelands. Some among them live in the dirty places (dustbins) and others live among man. The djinn live in these dirty places in order to eat the remainders of foods thrown away by people. Also, certain djinn live in cemeteries and ruins.

Q: Can djinn change form and appearance?

A: The djinn have the capacity to take many forms and to change appearance. According to the Imam Ibn Taymiya, they can take a human or animal, form such as a cow, a scorpion, a snake, a bird.... The black dog is the devil of the dogs and the djinn often appear in this form. They can also appear in the form of a black cat.
When a djinn takes a human or animal form, it obeys the physical laws of this form; for example, it will be possible to see it or to kill it with a gunshot or to wound it with a knife. For this reason, djinn remain in these forms for only a short time because they are vulnerable. In fact, they benefit from their invisibility to frighten people.

Q: Are djinn both male and female?

A: Yes, there are males and females among the djinn.
According to the Koran, the djinn have the capacity to procreate and can have offspring.

Q: Are djinn responsible for their acts?

A: Just like humans, the djinn are responsible for their acts. Indeed, Allah will take the day of the last Judgement to them.
According to the Imam Ibn Taymiya, the djinn observe obligations in relation to their specific nature. Being different from the human beings, their duties are inevitably different, too.
They have religious beliefs, too. Like human beings, they can be Christian, Jewish, non-believers or Moslems. The Moslems among them are just like the Moslems among men; some are pious, others are evil.

Q: Are djinn afraid of humans?

A: The djinn and men feared each other mutually, but the djinn were able to instil fear more intensely than men. The djinns are more fearful beings by nature, but they can also feel such human emotions as anger or sadness. In fact, the djinn benefit from these states, being better able to cause fear in the heart of man. Like bad dogs, when they sense your fear, they will attack.

General : Tot finds spook as she cleans TV

Posted by smutly on 08-Jul-2006 22:24 (2123 reads)

A couple claim their telly is haunted and insist this picture of their toddler dusting the set proves it.
Faith Taylor was helping mum Tracey tidy up when, unseen at the time, a mysterious face appeared on the TV screen.
Shocked Tracey, 31, only spotted it when a photo she took of Faith doing the polishing was developed. The mum is positive the TV was off and says there was no one else in the room.
She is also convinced Faith has seen the bespectacled spook before because when the 18 month old was shown the picture she exclaimed: “That’s Ben!”
Tracey, of Lower Ince, Wigan, shuddered yesterday: “I think we should get TV ghosthunter Derek Acorah down here immediately.” Faith’s dad Darren first spotted something odd about the photo as he flicked through the images on their digital camera.
He told Tracey: “It looks like the polish as made a face on that one.”
Next day Tracey took the camera to Boots to get prints and was confronted by the face. She said: “It really is dead weird.”
