Church leaders in Florence fear that the practice of exorcism is getting out of hand as gung-ho priests mistake mental health problems for demonic possession.
Cinderella had her fairy godmother and George Bailey from It’s A Wonderful Life had Clarence. And both the guardian angels gave these characters hope when they had none. But these are just stories. Do real people have guardian angels? The Washington Times states that most Americans do believe in guardian angels who keep them safe in a dangerous world. And according to a new study, it's this belief that keeps them from taking risks, which non-believers would be more inclined to take.
Visitors from outer space or a natural phenomena? Surfers and early morning walkers were stunned to find thousands of 'alien eggs' on a Sydney beach this weekend.
The smell of cut grass in recent years has been identified as the plant’s way of signalling distress, but new research says the aroma also summons beneficial insects to the rescue. Such findings may help plant breeders know how to develop new varieties that are more resistant to insects and drought.
Liberia is to become the first nation in Africa to completely stop cutting down its trees in return for development aid.
Wind energy typically conjures up images of towering turbines being revved up by massive, spinning airfoils. At a much smaller scale, however, it’s also possible to harvest wind power from the friction of flapping flags.
A new study released Monday found that warming temperatures in Pacific Ocean waters off the coast of North America over the past century closely followed natural changes in the wind, not increases in greenhouse gases related to global warming.
It is difficult to find fault with a process that can create food from sunlight, water and air, but for many plants, there is room for improvement. Researchers have taken an important step towards enhancing photosynthesis by engineering plants with enzymes from blue-green algae that speed up the process of converting carbon dioxide into sugars.
Sometime in the early first century B.C., a ship went down in the Mediterranean Sea, just off a Greek island named Antikythera. The wreck itself wasn’t unusual. The island was surrounded by jagged rocks, which likely caused many a boat to disappear back then. But there was something different about this one. The boat contained a trove of statues, jewelry, and — most notably — what some scholars believe to be the earliest computer known to man.

At a press conference earlier this year, former Nasa astronaut Dr Edward Lu announced that there are around 1m asteroids in the Earth's vicinity "with the potential to destroy a major metropolitan area". He teed up an animated graphic to demonstrate how unprepared we are. The graphic showed the Earth in orbit among the dangerous asteroids we knew about and were tracking, around 10,000 of them.
The largest body of liquid on Saturn's moon Titan is the formidably named Kraken Mare, a sea of methane that sprawls some 400,000 km 2 across the moon's north polar region. Next week, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will perform a flyby of Titan in search of wave activity atop this colossal sea of hydrocarbon.

Recent surveys have shown that a significant portion of the population believes in ghosts, leading some scholars to conclude that we are witnessing a revival of paranormal beliefs in Western society. A Harris poll from last year found that 42 percent of Americans say they believe in ghosts. The percentage is similar in the U.K., where 52 percent of respondents indicated that they believed in ghosts in a recent poll.
Here's my latest appearance on the Joe Rogan experience. Joe had a surprise in store for me about two thirds of the way through the interview. It was all very spontaneous and on the spot but I'm still thinking through the implications of my first smoke in three years!
Analysis of ancient human bones supports the idea that the first inhabitants of Vanuatu developed horticulture as they ran out of wild resources.
A team of scientists have uncovered large stone cutting tools (LCTs) in the Danjiangkou Reservoir Region (DRR) of central China.
