Are children more psychic than adults? From the mouths of babes – true stories that will scare you speechless
It is often said that children have a sixth sense that is particularly attuned to spirits of those who have passed away. The predominant cause cited is because their conscious minds, controlled primarily by the left brain, are not as developed as adults. Others feel their laser-sharp psychic ability is simply because they are more open to possibilities than “trained” adults who over time, program children to tune out and dismiss anything they see and hear that doesn’t fit into the physical world.

Guildford, located in the United Kingdom, is considered to be one of the most haunted places on earth. Visit the town center any night of the week and you’ll find several “ghost tours” where locals will take you on a walk about the city while pointing out the many haunted locations scattered throughout the town. In fact, there is evidence that bolsters their claims. Guildford has produced one of the most convincing pieces of ghostly evidence, a picture that has confounded the experts. The general consensus is that the picture is real and untouched. Amateur photographer, Mark Baker, 37, who took the picture, has no idea what the figure is and insists that the picture has not been altered in any way.

Dan explained that his café, the Curiositeaz Vintage Tea Room in Perth, Scotland, has produce other unexplained phenomena.

On May 16, 1986, when former town marshal David Gary Young and his wife Doris Young took 154 children and 13 teachers hostage at Cokeville Elementary school in Wyoming, and kept them at bay with a shopping-cart sized bomb attached to five hairpin-trigger blast caps, it should have ended in great tragedy – one of the worst in American history. Yes, the bomb did explode and it exploded in a room packed full of children, but the only persons to die that day were Mr. Young and his wife. In what is called “The Cokeville Miracle”, the lives of the children and teachers were spared. If you ask residents of the town how such a thing could happen, they will look at you, smile, and answer in one word – Angels.
