Irish school claims to catch another ghost on camera as original is debunked by fact checkers




By: Alex Kack



The Deerpark Christian Brothers School in Cork, Ireland was the subject of a fair amount of media attention after a video went viral purporting to show a ghost causing havoc in the school halls.

The video showed a  'wet floor' caution sign flying off the ground, lockers opening and emptying on their own, and other examples of alleged otherworldly vandalism.

The school quickly sought to monetize off the occurrence and the newfound notoriety it brought, billing themselves as “the world's most haunted school” and planning a Halloween party and tour that would cost visitors five euros to attend.

The fact checking website Snopes.com declared the video to be a hoax and found a number of issues that lead them to believe it had been edited. Namely that the video was shot at eye level from a tripod mounted camera and not a security camera as the school had claimed, mismatched shadows and other continuity errors.

The school has since released a new video they claim is also evidence of a haunting. The new video was apparently recorded on October 26th and shows a chair being thrown across a hallway. No word yet on whether the creators learned from their previous mistakes.

Government Program Researched Stargates, Other Dimension

These new revelations come in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
Many of these topics have been the hall mark of science fiction for decades. Among the subjects studied were traveling through worm holes or “stargates”, warp drives, invisibility cloaking, ‘high energy laser weapons’ and the viability of experimental new metals.
It seems unlikely that any of the projects funded produced any tangible or actionable results, however the federal government appears to have took these types of experimental and theoretical science projects seriously enough to fund them.
Prior to this disclosure it was presumed that Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, had primarily served to investigate alleged UFO sightings.

The Roman Catholic Church has chosen to translate the rite of exorcism from Latin into English for the first time in history. The decision was made by the Catholic Bishops of America last month.
