The Horrors of the Black Death




 Read More

Long ago, near the beginning of the world, Gray Eagle was the guardian of the sun and moon and stars, of fresh water and of fire. Gray Eagle hated people so much that he kept these things hidden. People lived in darkness, without fire and without fresh water.
Gray Eagle had a beautiful daugher, and Raven fell in love with her. At that time Raven was a handsome young man. He changed himself into a snow-white bird, and as a snow-white bird he pleased Gray Eagle's daughter. She invited him to her father's lodge.
When Raven saw the sun and teh moon and the stars and fresh water hanging on the sides of Eagle's lodge, he knew what he should do. He watched for his chance to seize them when no one was looking. He stole all of them, and a brand of fire also, and flew out of the lodge through a smoke hole.
As soon as Raven got outside, he hung the sun up in the sky. It made so much light that he was able to fly far out to an island in the middle of the ocean. When the sun set, he fastened the moon up in the sky and hung the stars around in different places. By this new light he kept on flying, carrying with him the fresh water and the brand of fire he hadstolen. It fell to the ground and there became the source of all the freshwater streams and lakes in the world.
The Raven flew on, holding the brand of fire in his bill.
The smoke from the fire blew back over his white feathers and made them black.. When his bill began to burn, he had to drop the firebrand. It struck rocks and went into the rocks. That is why, if you strike two stones together, fire will drop out.
Raven's feathers never became white again after they were blackened by the smoke from the firebrand. That is why Raven is not a black bird.

On the 25th August, 1835, the New York Sun newspaper published the first of six articles that collectively became known as ‘The Great Moon Hoax’. Dr Andrew Grant, a made up reporter, claimed to be a colleague of the famous astronomer Sir John Herschel who, so the article reported, had discovered alien life forms on the moon from his observatory at the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.

The article clamed that Herschel made the discovery with a powerful new telescope which had been installed in the observatory a year earlier and published his findings in the Edinburgh Journal of science, which had in fact ceased to exist a number of years previous.

The life forms supposedly found included goats, unicorns, two-legged beavers and bat-like, temple building humanoids complete with fur and wings.....Read More
