Episode 28: A Haunted Church

James and Timothy spend the night in a haunted church located in the river town of Columbia, Pennsylvania. Recorders are deployed throughout the church and parsonage with two short but interesting audio clips captured. In the middle of the night, Timothy notices a black object on the floor which has disappeared by morning. Chris Vera tells some of the ghostly encounters he and others have had in the church.

  1. I never noticed churches had red doors. So looking into it briefly it is common and we both know why just like in Star Trek why the Transporter room, and the turbolift’s door are red…Spring

  2. So if you look at the church you have the two animal totem poles on the left and the right. This is male and female, falling from mother on right then rising to Father and Mother up the left pillar.

    In the middle is the Yin Yang pole, if you look at the old first churches that little circular window- which is a flower bloom- was three rabbits.

    The Yang down pointing side of the pole points to the hare. So as I try and claim rabbit ears represent the dicot.

    Based on that it is a seed blooming up to a tree, and so the top of the church is the bird(bell,bill) house, as you know the yin points to bird…A Rooster…now you know why roosters are on roofs…

    this is also the riddle of why the chicken crosses the road and most people due to indoctrination would say to get to the other side not understanding the other side is a spring chicken(hare)…and that’s where all the Easter symbolism comes from… we knew it all along reducing it to a lame joke…that’s evolution

    GI JJJJJJJJJJJJJOooooooooooooooooooeee So you see kids sometimes knowing isn’t knowing at all and even when someone gives you all the information slapping you in the face with it, it doesn’t mean you have the ability to put it together nor comprehend it at all.

    Occult charlotas charlot lizards are really going to hate me…I rip off wigs…

    go back to sleep their only waking you up… to more lies…
