Were You Born in the Year of the Snake? - The Chinese Zodiac

When I first found out that I'd been born in the year of the snake according to the Chinese Zodiac I wasn't particularly pleased about it. Because being born in the year of the snake suggested according to Chinese tradition that it was this animals qualities with which I was imbued. And in England the snake is not an animal revered, and to be named as such comes with negative connotations.

For in England to be called a snake is to suggest that you are of a treacherous nature, and a person of low moral standing. A back-stabber and a thief. And a person not to be trusted.

But despite all the exaggerated self doubt I'd felt at having found myself to be a snake no doubt fueled by an inner guilt that had always suspected that this was indeed so, I needn't have worried. For within the Chinese Zodiac the snake was not an animal to be ashamed of. But instead to count amongst a family's members a soul born to the year of the snake was a good omen. And the ancient Chinese believed that if there were a snake in the house, the family would always be free from want.

Personality traits of those born in the year of the snake:

Souls born to the year of the snake are quiet people, who are said to be possessing of great wisdom. Financially fortunate snakes are rarely lacking in money, although due to their thrifty ways those born under the snake can often be seen as selfish or stingy by those born to animals less careful.

Snakes are said to be vain and often worry about the opinions of others regarding their own actions, and as such tend to shy away from others preferring to rely upon themselves only.
Whilst tranquil as a calm pool on the surface snakes burn with intense passions within, and boiling blood courses through their veins. Usually good looking snakes can be fickle, and due to their good looks and vanity those born in the year of the snake are known to often indulge in extramarital affairs.

But although weak to the urges of the flesh snakes are touched with a tremendous sympathy for the feelings of others, and will always go out of their way to assist those less fortunate.

* And I have to say that in my case at least, this seemed to sum me up fairly well.

Famous Celebrity Snakes Include:

Were you born in the year of the snake?


The next year of the snake will be in 2013

* The Chinese Zodiac works on a 12 year rotation, so to find dates that fall under the snake outside of the above range add / subtract 12 years from those given.

And if like me initially you still don't like the idea of being a snake then there's always this:

“If you don't like your own character there may be a new one ready-made and waiting for you. For the snake sheds its skin with impunity." - Proverb.

Real Paranormal Activity Footage / Videos / Stories

Are ghosts, Demons, and the like, merely the imaginings of over-active, imaginative, and indeed, fearful minds. And nothing more than good source material from which to construct stories, and make movies. Or do these entities from other worlds, actually exist all around us, at any given moment, usually unseen, surrounding us, observing us, and on occasion, breaking through into our world. For good or for bad, altering (and occasionally wreaking havoc upon) the lives of the living.
The two recent Paranormal Activity movies would have us believe so. And so with that in mind, we decided to explore the online archives, in search of examples of ‘real’ paranormal activity, captured in homes just like yours, and uploaded onto the Internet, by people just like you.
Real Paranormal Activity Videos:
Can dogs see ghosts? - The supposition that animals might be able to see, or sense ghosts, is as old as man himself. And the question (as featured in the movie Paranormal Activity 2’), ‘Can dogs see ghosts?’, is a much debated one online. With many dog owners talking of the strange behavior displayed by their dogs at times. Including the unnerving experience of witnessing your furry best friend snarling viciously, or whining and backing away from, something we are unable to see. Making for interesting reading for those interested in cases of ‘real' paranormal activity. With a possibly surprising 74% of over one thousand people polled, believing that in fact, dogs CAN see ghosts. 
Can Children See Ghosts?
And if dogs can see ghosts, then what about children? Is your child seeing and talking to merely just their ‘invisible friend?’ Or to something more sinister? Children are often the main focus of paranormal entities, both in the movies, and in ‘real’ life accounts. With one idea being that as with dogs/animals, the innocence which (most) adults lose over the years, is what allows these (as yet) untarnished minds, to see into the spirit world, in a way that most of us ‘grown-ups have long since learnt to block out.
“Like a Little Bird...”
And nothing on this planet is surrounded by more accounts of ‘real’ paranormal activity than the tool of divination, known as the ‘Ouija Board’. Also known as the: ‘Talking Board’, ‘Witch Board’, and the ‘Devils Oracle’, the Ouija board is a ‘tool’ used to communicate with, and/or seek advice from, whatever it is that lurks, in the world unseen to us. Everybody knows somebody who has played with the Ouija board, or whose mother did when she was younger, and generally with terrifying results, leading to sworn oaths to never meddle with the Ouija board ever again. But is the Ouija board really anything more than just a simple board game? If truth be told, there really is only one way to find out for sure. And that’s to go play it. DARE YOU PLAY?

The Garden of EDIN - Aliens and the Garden of Eden

Type ‘Garden of Edin’, into Google, and it will almost definitely ask you, “Did you mean Garden of Eden?” Which, in this case, we didn’t.

What is the Garden of Edin?

The ‘story’ of the Garden of Eden talks of the biblical garden of God, a divine area in which the first man and woman were created (as you probably know). A story that, in many ways, the Garden of Edin theory runs parallel too. With one primary exception. In the idea of the Garden of Edin, the creator of mankind was not an all-powerful deity (in the current religious sense), but were instead, extraterrestrial beings. Entities from other worlds, who, having ‘stumbled’ across our planet in the course of their explorations, or with unknown intent, left a little something of themselves behind on our little blue planet, before departing. i.e. Us.

God was an Alien

And that’s the central idea behind the Garden of Edin. An idea that suggests that the creationist legend of mankinds birth is not wrong, exactly. But that the ‘God’ in question was somewhat misunderstood. And that rather than being an omnipotent entity conjured forth from the ether, were instead, members of an interplanetary-travelling alien race.

Genesis 1/26: 'And Yahweh said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness...'

An alien race that, as stated above, either with a now unknown intent, or out of experimentation, and curiosity while passing through. Genetically engineered the human race by splicing their own genetic material, with that of the primates, and simians they found to inhabit the Earth upon arrival.  Creating a race of beings, that would forever, question, and search for; the source of its origins.  

Where is the Garden of Edin Located?

According to legend, the Garden of Edin was located in the ‘East’. With some suggesting that it lay within Iraq, others, within Africa, while others still believe that the Garden of Edin, was in fact, the lost kingdom of Atlantis.

Who were the Aliens that Created Us?

This is of course, unfortunately, unknown (or at least, it is to the majority - with some believing in shady government conspiracies, and the withholding of knowledge). However, if you’re looking for a little more, who, what, why, when, and where. And you’re a believer in the philosophy that a picture tells a thousand words.  The following two movies, should to some degree either quench, or fuel, your interest in the idea of an Alien-made human race. And the potential consequences, of being the living science-experiment, of an advanced Alien civilization...
