TWO GOOD TO BE TRUE with Justina Marsh and Peter Marsh
JUSTINA MARSH was born in Florida but moved to the Midwest at an early age. Justina knew from a young age that she had some special gifts that others did not but did not know exactly what these gifts were. Her parents told stories about ghosts Justina would talk to or how she would point out orbs floating around the room. Justina’s great grandmother practiced as a psychic many years ago and she is part of a family lineage of psychics. She decided to pursue an education and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. Justina works as a chemist but also wants to do more. Justina was always interested in learning all she could about the world. She realized that she could help share information using her psychic abilities. She is very interested in the paranormal world and conspiracy theories.
PETE MARSH was born in Dorset, England. His family later moved inland to Wiltshire, England. Growing up, his formative years were spent not far from Stonehenge or from the Avebury stone circles. He always had an interest in the unexplained in the world. Pete trained as an engineer with qualifications in materials science. After moving to Norway, he emigrated to the United States to further his career. In recent years, Pete has become increasingly interested in the history of the world, which has progressed into studying spiritual beliefs. Pete continues to work as an engineer, and spends much of his spare time researching the true nature and purpose of mankind. Pete does not claim psychic abilities, but has learned to trust his intuition. Pete’s mother and grandmother were both psychically gifted.
TGTBT: Ghosts and Spirits
In folklore, a ghost (sometimes known as an apparition, haunt, phantom, poltergeist, shade, specter or spectre, spirit, spook, and wraith) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear to the living. In ghostlore, descriptions of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike forms. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.
The belief in the existence of an afterlife, as well as manifestations of the spirits of the dead, is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary, human-like essences, though stories of ghostly armies and the ghosts of animals rather than humans have also been recounted. They are believed to haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life. According to a 2009 study by the Pew Research Center, 18% of Americans say they have seen a ghost.
The overwhelming consensus of science is that there is no proof that ghosts exist. Their existence is impossible to falsify, and ghost hunting has been classified as pseudoscience. Despite centuries of investigation, there is no scientific evidence that any location is inhabited by spirits of the dead. Historically, certain toxic and psychoactive plants (such as datura and hyoscyamus niger), whose use has long been associated with necromancy and the underworld, have been shown to contain anticholinergic compounds that are pharmacologically linked to dementia (specifically DLB) as well as histological patterns of neurodegeneration. Recent research has indicated that ghost sightings may be related to degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. Common prescription medication and over-the-counter drugs (such as sleep aids) may also, in rare instances, cause ghost-like hallucinations, particularly zolpidem and diphenhydramine. Older reports linked carbon monoxide poisoning to ghost-like hallucinations.
TGTBT: Controversial Court Verdicts
Court trials have become spectacles for the American public.
Heroes and villains are made in the media and court trials have a way of dividing America. They serve as entertainment as the public roots for or against defendants.
Controversial cases always make for controversial verdicts; and we’ve seen many in the last years.
miracle is an event so marvelous that it seems like it was sent from above. ... Miracle, a noun meaning “amazing or wonderful occurrence," comes from the Latin miraculum “object of wonder." Dig way back and the word derives from smeiros, meaning "to smile," which is exactly what you do when a miracle happens.
TGTBT: The Death of Diana, Princess of Wales and the Conspiracy Theories
In the early hours of 31 August 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales died in hospital after being injured in a motor vehicle accident in a road tunnel in Paris. Her partner, Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the Mercedes-Benz W140, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene. Their bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, survived with serious injuries.
Some media claimed the erratic behaviour of paparazzi following the car, as reported by the BBC, had contributed to the crash. In 1999, a French investigation found that Paul, who lost control of the vehicle at high speed while intoxicated and under the effects of prescription drugs, was solely responsible for the crash. He was the deputy head of security at the Hôtel Ritz and had earlier goaded paparazzi waiting for Diana and Fayed outside the hotel. Anti-depressants and traces of an anti-psychotic in his blood may have worsened Paul's inebriation. No evidence was found that paparazzi were near the car when it crashed. In 2008, the jury at a British inquest returned a verdict of unlawful killing through grossly negligent driving by Paul and following vehicles. It was also found that none of the occupants of the car were wearing a seat belt.
Diana was 36 years old when she died. Her death caused an unprecedented outpouring of public grief in the United Kingdom and worldwide, and her funeral was watched by an estimated 2.5 billion people. The Royal Family were criticised in the press for their reaction to Diana's death. Public interest in Diana has remained high and she has retained regular press coverage in the years after her death.
TGTBT: The 27 Club
The 27 Club is a list consisting mostly of popular musicians, artists, or actors who died at age 27. Although the claim of a "statistical spike" for the death of musicians at that age has been repeatedly disproved by research, it remains a cultural phenomenon, documenting the deaths of celebrities, some noted for their high-risk lifestyles. Names are often put forward for inclusion, but because the club is entirely notional, there is no official membership.
