Transylvania’s Haunted Forest, Known as Romania’s ‘Bermuda Triangle’

The universe is full of mysteries that challenge our current knowledge. In "Beyond Science" Epoch Times collects stories about these strange phenomena to stimulate the imagination and open up previously undreamed of possibilities. Are they true? You decide.

When most people think of Transylvania, the first thought that comes to mind is Dracula. But, setting Vlad Tepes (the person considered the model for Dracula) aside, the area’s majestic yet notorious landscapes are home to perhaps the world’s most haunted forest.

The forest in question is the Hoia Baciu forest located outside the city of Cluj Napoca in the historical region of Transylvania, Romania.

The area first gained notoriety outside the region when in 1968 biologist Alexandru Sift who, while on a scientific expedition to the forest, snapped a photo of a disc shaped UFO. The photo fueled ufologist interest across the world.

However, the forest is known for much more than just UFO related phenomenon. It is known as the “Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania” among the ghost hunting community and among paranormal investigators, such as Dr. Adrian Patrut, president of the Romanian Society of Parapsychology.
“Some experts believe that we are dealing with a genuine Romanian ‘Bermuda Triangle.’ The area certainly can be certified as such, especially with the exceptional video and photos, along with testimonies of researchers who studied it for decades,” said Dr. Adrian Patrut in the show “Science and Knowledge (TVR Cluj), according to

Visitors to the area tell of intense feelings of anxiety. Moreover, some who have ventured off into the mysterious woods have emerged with unexplained rashes, scratches, burns, and other effects like migraines, nausea, vomiting, and even missing time.

To make matters more menacing, some of the forest trees are twisted and distorted misshapen like those depicted in old fairy tales. This landscape adds to the anxiety experienced by visitors as they enter.

In one particular area of the forest is a clearing were no trees grow. Some paranormal investigators believe this area to be especially high in activity.

Many locals believe the site is haunted and that if they enter, they will not return. In fact, according to legends of the area, the forest is named after a local shepherd who, along with his 200 sheep, disappeared.

Other legends include that spirits of murdered villagers have been trapped in the forest and are unable to move on. Visitors to the forest often hear disembodied voices and sometimes witness disembodied heads floating amid the trees.

Dr. Patrut has been studying the site since the 1970s, but unfortunately, no conclusions about the forest’s strange atmosphere have come to light.

In recent years the site has attracted tourists to the area seeking either ghostly encounters or spiritual experiences, according to the Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures,” a show which did a short stint on the mystery forest (see video clip above).
Today even the legends remain buried in the shroud of campfire stories. However, the lasting impression of this forest seems to the consistency of the occurrences and the large amount of photographic evidence.

Scientists Speechless At What They Find Beneath Egypt!

For many generations, it has been questioned and debated. Many long hours and much time has been spent pouring over the evidence, yet with no clear answers and no hard proof.
However, today, more evidence keeps piling up that proves the ancients did have technology far beyond what we can even begin to imagine. 
Brien Foerester takes you down dark tunnels, beneath pyramids, and inside places you have only seen in your imagination. 

But now he goes even further and takes you beneath Egypt, where mysterious 100 ton stone boxes were discovered.  Some people believe they were used for burial purposes, but Brien clearly shows us how they were used for ancient ‘high’ technology.
Is it possible that the technology of the ancients was so advanced, it goes above and beyond ours today?
The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 1:9,  “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Where we believe we have gone forward and advanced throughout history, is it possible we are actually far behind, and that someone else a long time ago knew all the secrets we have yet to uncover?
I can honestly say yes.  The fallen angels had the knowledge handed down to them by God, and they taught their children, the nephilim, and all of humanity the secrets of technology they had acquired.

Time and again, mankind has been stunned by the ancient megaliths, wondering how they could possibly have been erected by the humans of that time.  But the nephilim and raphaim were extremely intelligent, insanely strong, and quite frightful to look upon.  They were also giants!  This is exactly how it was that ancient megalithic structures were built. 
Ancient technology is indeed a reality, and Brien shows you in the videos I have included below just how it could have happened.

Brien writes:
Inside a tunnel system carved out of the solid limestone bedrock in the desert of Egypt, more than 20 granite boxes made of precision shaped Aswan granite are a true enigma. Said by some to have been the burial places of prized bulls, their real function is far more intriguing. And they are clear examples of Lost Ancient High Technology created before the time of the Dynastic Egyptians.

PETALING JAYA: The promise of getting US$5mil (S$6.5mil) from the “netherworld” proved too good a deal to pass up for a 40-year-old businessman, who was duped into paying almost RM400,000 to secure a key to this “magical” world.

He was first lured by a con artist into buying a ring for RM2,000 in September, but ended up paying a total of RM393,500 (S$160,000) to perform a series of rituals in rented houses or hotels.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Khairuldin Saad said during the rituals, the victim was required to offer prayers and money to a “genie”.

“He purchased three suitcases to put in 519 bundles of paper resembling dollar bills.

“He then added real money into the mix as part of the ritual,” he added.

ACP Khairuldin said the victim had been paying the con man every month since September but lodged a police report early this month after not getting the promised money.

Acting on a tip-off, police arrested a Georgian national in a recreational park in Pandan Indah at about 9pm last Friday.

ACP Khairuldin said the man admitted to scamming the business owner and led police to a premise in Taman Cahaya Indah where the three suitcases and ritual paraphernalia consisting of candle sticks and pieces of cloth were found.

Police also seized the man’s mobile phone.

The case has been classified as cheating under Section 420 of the Penal Code.

In a separate incident, police nabbed a Congolese woman for conning an incapacitated man of RM10,000.
ACP Khairuldin said the woman approached the man, who is in his 30s, late last month in Ampang Point to introduce him to a gold investment scheme.

“She promised the man that he would get a 15 per cent to 20 per cent return on his investment in two weeks and he invested RM10,000 in the scheme,” he said.

ACP Khairuldin said the man, who lost his job as a ship welder due to chronic back pains, lodged a police report after realising he had been conned.

“We arrested the woman in her Taman Kosas residence at 10pm Monday.

“Her four-year-old daughter, who was in the house during the arrest, was handed over to the welfare department,” he said.

The case is being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.

Stunning Photos Of Mexico's 'Day Of The Dead' Record Attempt

Mexico celebrated the Day of the Dead with a new world record, as women in the country's capital dressed up as "Catrinas" and brought together the most "Skeleton Ladies" ever in one place.

The Skeleton Lady first appeared as a satirical engraving by artist Jose Guadalupe Posada sometime between 1910 and 1913. Posada originally created the character to poke fun at "people who pretended to be European, but weren't," Mercedes Sierra, a visual arts professor at Mexico's National Autonomous University explained to the Associated Press last year. "Skeleton" was a Mexican slang for someone too poor to buy food. However, the image was also a critique of social stratification. "Death is democratic. At the end, regardless of whether you are white, dark, rich or poor, we all end up as skeletons," the artist said at the time.

Hundreds of "Catrinas" showed up in the Mexican capital on Nov. 1.
