Mary Celeste: The Ghost Ship
Mary Celeste was a ship that set sail in November 1972 from NYC to Italy. There were a total of eight people on board, including Captain Benjamin Briggs, along with his wife and 2-year-old daughter. However, on the 4th of December 1972, the Mary Celeste ship was found in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, abandoned. The ship was found in perfect condition, seaworthy. However, it had been discovered that a lifeboat had been boarded in an orderly fashion. Why so? The world might never find out because no one has heard from the people on that ship to this day. Theories linked with this incident include some kind of attack by a sea monster or a gigantic octopus, pirate attack, or mutiny.
Is Reincarnation Possible?
In 1957, a tragic car accident took the lives of two young sisters; 11 years old Joanna Pollock and six years old Jacqueline Pollock. A year after their death, their mother welcomed twins Jennifer and Gillian. The disturbing part of this story is that when the twins grew old enough to be able to talk, they started to ask questions related to their dead sisters’ belongings, such as their toys. They also “recognized” landmarks their dead sisters would have been familiar with, such as the school they went to. Another strange thing was that every time they saw a car coming their way on the road, they would panic and say things like, “the car is going to get us!” Does this mean that the Pollock sisters were reincarnated?
The Disappearance At The Flannan Isles Lighthouse
The Flannan Isles Lighthouse is located off the west coast of Scotland. In 1990, it used to be guarded by a team of four people. One man had the duty of rotating at the shore while the three other men - James Ducat, Thomas Marshall, and Donald MacArthur - were the lighthouse's keepers. On the 26th of December 1990, the relief keeper came to the lighthouse to find that not even one of the keepers was there. Except for an overturned chair that was found in the kitchen, there was no sign that something was amiss.
No bodies of the keepers have been discovered to date. People have made theories such as some incident with a sea monster or even a ghost ship.
