    Trump’s New Favorite COVID Doctor Believes in Alien DNA, Demon Sperm, and Hydroxychloroquine

    Virginia Teen Dies After Summoning Ancient Haitian VooDoo Deity Papa Legba
    - Did she really claim to see that (obituary)?

    Sounds like she might have been pushed over the edge with things (people questioning her on seeing a demon of sorts) and was a bit too "open-minded." Listening to the video in the one link and reading the comments, it's apparent that a lot of the people seem to have been involved with voodoo extensively, using the term 'Barons,' and 'Crossroads' (which if anyone looks into the origin/source of Eric Clapton's 'Crossroads' may recall the story of Robert Johnson who "went down to the crossroads" for some time and returned a skilled musician (which I assume he simply believed in himself more and trained better) and may have been inspired from Voodoo tradition/culture (evidently blues music was considered demeaning so in order to be such a musician you had to "sell your soul into it.")

    I'm a bit more open-minded about the possibility that noncorporeal intelligence exists but even those talking about the subject claim no physical manifestation would ever occur; in fact most people that claim to be involved with 'Satanic' groups and see spirits seem to be dubious in a number of ways.

    Car catches fire after candle burning inside falls over and ignites papers

    Even their delivery of this story seems like the situational-irony of the Onion. . . This was in Florida, so I suspect a candle isn't just a candle.
