Scary modern cases of witch hunts and sorcerers

It is believed that in those dark ages, a lot of innocent women suffered because of the blindness of ignorant people who saw witchcraft in everything strange and unusual and sincerely believed in curses and malevolent damage from the evil eye. However, such “ignorance” is found in our days, as are cases of reprisals against witches.

10. Mexican killings

In April 1998, an enraged elderly man burst into the house of Modesta Navarro Nieves, in the small Mexican village of Guadeloupe del Cobre, and began to accuse the woman of being a witch and that she cursed him. He had a heavy club with him and he began beating the woman with it.

The attacker stopped only when Modesta’s husband returned who attacked him with a stick and, having being hit a couple of times, he rushed to run away. When the doctors arrived to help the battered Modesta, it was already too late, the woman died from the wounds inflicted on her.

‘Only’ 11 years later, the police managed to get on the trail of the killer and detained him. It turned out to be the 78-year-old Santiago Ineges Olivares. And a year before his arrest in another part of Mexico, an unspecified woman was attacked and killed after accusations of witchcraft.

9. The Gambian Witch Hunters

In Gambia (West Africa) in 2009 there was a massive campaign against local witches and sorcerers. The Witch Hunters, accompanied by police and soldiers, walked from village to village and took away all suspicious people, most often the elderly.

In total, about a thousand people were captured. Threatening them with pistols, they drove them to a special shelter, where they forced them to drink a toxic hallucinogenic “medicine” in order to deprive these “witches” of the ability to conjure. Many people died, having been poisoned by this swill, and those who survived were expected to be beaten, tortured by electric shocks or at best, bullying.

The main “witch hunter”, later assured that all this was done with the blessing of the president of the country. Such a “hunt” caused a great panic among the villagers and the people began to flee en masse to the territory of neighboring Senegal. Entire parts of Gambia were deserted before the witch hunters abandoned their activities.

8. New York Voodoo

On a cold January night in 2014, NYPD received a call to Estrella Castaneda’s house. Near the house, they found 44-year-old Carlos Alberto Amarilla with a Bible in his hand and it turned out that he had called 911 and confessed to the murder of two women in this house.

When the police went inside, they found Estrella Castaneda lying on the bed, dead with a pillow on her face, and her daughter Lina lying on the floor in the next room. Both women were brutally hammered to death.

In a statement, Amarilla described that he had met with Estrella and was her boyfriend, but then he allegedly suddenly found out that both of these women were dangerous witches who performed voodoo rituals and wanted to use black magic on him. Amarilla received two life sentences for double murder of the first degree.

7. Executions in Saudi Arabia

In 2011, a resident of Saudi Arabia, Amina Bint Abdul Halim Nassar, was convicted of “practicing witchcraft and sorcery”. In her house, bottles were found filled with a kind of “witchcraft” liquid.

According to anonymous sources, Nassar actively traded these potions, and for the creation of witchcraft potions in the country under the Sharia law, the death penalty was imposed. And despite requests for clemency from international human rights organizations, the woman was soon executed by chopping off her head.

In 2007, pharmacist Mustafa Ibrahim was likewise charged and beheaded after accusations of using magic. Allegedly, he entered the bathroom with the Qur’an and read something strange there. After this incident, a special anti-witch detachment was established in Saudi Arabia, which began to carry out propaganda among the population against the use of magic and witchcraft.

By the end of 2019, about 118 people in Saudi Arabia were accused of magical manipulation of the Koran and all this disinfo spread through anonymous scammers. What happened to these people is unknown.

6. Assault on a village witch

This incident slipped into the media in the late 1990s and occurred in an unspecified village somewhere on the Russian-Ukrainian border. A local resident, Sasha Lebedkin and his nephew, Sergei Gretsov, turned to the so-called grandmother, to ask her to remove the spell that supposedly hung from Sergei.

According to Gretsov, he was bewitched by 22-year-old Tanya Tarasova, who tried to force him to marry her, and when he refused, the girl decided to apply witchcraft. The sorceress tried to remove the curse, but then said that it was too strong.

Then, Gretsov and Lebedkin decided to take revenge on Tarasova. On the evening of February 22, 1997, they broke into Tarasova’s house and attacked her and her relatives with hammers. Tanya and her three younger brothers and sisters remained unharmed, but Tanya’s mother was killed in the attack.

At the interrogation, Gretsov and Lebedkin stated that they could not kill Tarasova because she “set fire to their eyes and sent strange animals to them.”

5. The killing of “damned” children in Benin

In the remote villages of Benin, a poor African country, there is still a terrible belief that a baby born with its legs forward is a damned sorcerer. The tradition obliges to take such a child to the forest and kill it by striking his head against a strong tree.

More compassionate parents “just” leave such a baby in the forest under the bushes, where it soon dies of hunger and thirst or from the claws of wild animals.

“A child whose birth deviates from the accepted norm is damned and must be destroyed,” say people in Baatonou, Boko and Peul.

Infants whose teeth begin to grow too late, who were born after prolonged and painful contractions, or were born head first but facing the earth, are also suspected and the same fate awaits them. And if the child is completely normal, but because of the poverty of it’s parents, from the youngest years starts to steal food because of hunger, then it is also considered damned and can also be easily killed.

Western researchers who have visited Benin are horrified by such traditions and call them barbaric and completely inhuman. However, they cannot do anything, because such a practice is fully supported by the Benin authorities.

4. Attacks in Zambia

In January 2017, an 80-year-old Zambian resident traveled to the northern province of Copperbelt to visit her grandson. But as soon as she came to him, her little great-grandson, the son of her grandson, suddenly became ill and died suddenly.

Very saddened by the loss of his son, his father consulted a local healer and he blamed his great-grandmother for the death of the boy. He indicated that the illness of the child arose precisely with her arrival.

Early in the morning, all the neighbors of this family woke up from the heart-rending screams of a woman, her own grandson brutally beat her with a stick and shouted “Now it’s your turn to die, witch!”. After Beating the old woman, he then pushed her right into the fire. A little later, the grandmother died of wounds and burns.

A similar case in Zambia is far from uncommon, a lot of elderly people are attacked by their own relatives, who accuse them of causing damage, evil eye or other witchcraft. In 2017, about 25 old people and old women were brutally killed for this reason.

3. Lynch Courts

In 2008, in Papua New Guinea, villagers broke into a pregnant woman’s house and dragged her outside, accusing her of witchcraft that led to her neighbor’s sudden death. They threw a rope around the woman’s neck and hung her on a tree.

Fortunately, the rope was tightened ineptly and the woman managed to stay alive. For several hours she was hanging from the tree, struggling with the rope, but then she managed to free herself. Her unborn child was not injured either.

Similar cases in Papua New Guinea occur regularly, only in 2019 there were about 50. Local tribes are very superstitious and still believe in their own religions, and treat everything strange and unusual as an intervention of Evil.

In 2009, there was an absolutely terrible case when a crowd of teenagers accused one of their peers of witchcraft. They dragged her to a landfill, where they stripped her naked, beat her, and then tied her to a pile of tires and set them on fire.

The unfortunate remains were discovered only a few days later, when local residents began to complain about the unpleasant smell of burnt flesh, which was distributed throughout the district.

2. The killing of albinos in Tanzania

In Tanzania, albinos are considered supernatural beings associated with the world of spirits and magic. Therefore, every part of the albino’s body is worth its weight in gold, because it can bring good luck or cure diseases.

Because of this, albinos, especially girls, are literally hunted. There are frequent cases when murderers burst into the houses where the albino lived and chopped the child alive into pieces right in front of it’s relatives. In 2014 alone, there were more than a thousand cases of attacks on Tanzanian albinos and, according to human rights defenders, they will only increase.

To save albinos, they are trying to put them in special boarding houses, which are well guarded, but there are still very few such houses from benefactors.

1. Nightmare Christmas

At Christmas 2010, 15-year-old Kristy Bamu was visiting London with his 29-year-old sister Magalie and her boyfriend Eric Bikubi. Everything was quite normal and suddenly, at some point, Magalie and Eric attacked Kristy in a rage and began to beat him, and then tortured him with knives, a broken bottle and a hammer.

They demanded that Kristy confess that he was a sorcerer and that he wanted to harm them with ‘kindoki’ -or witchcraft. Kristy at some point, could not bear the pain and did it.

After that, the torture became even more cruel. With the help of pliers, the sister and her friend tore off Kristie’s ears, and then they dragged the bleeding teenager into the bathroom and threw him into the water “in order to expel the evil spirit from him.” However, tortured Kristy drowned immediately.

The court decided to give Eric Bikubi and Magalie Bamu prison sentences of 30 and 25 years, respectively.

Metaphysics & Psychology

Man is able to induce controlled hallucinations without psychotropic substances

The human brain is so cunningly designed that accidental damage or malfunctions in the neural network can generate large-scale effects that do not harm a person, but, on the contrary, deliver a lot of new sensations. 

We are talking about hallucinations, influences on the sensory system, which stem from the inside of the brain itself. Modern technologies make it possible to purposefully launch such reactions without harm to humans.

The technique of guided hallucinations is based on the Ganzfeld effect, which states that when the brain receives a powerful stimulating signal in only one area, it automatically begins to “think out” signals in other areas. 

For example, if you peer into the darkness and listen to white noise, the brain draws an imaginary picture, although the eyes do not receive a single photon of light. And if you run noise on the screen in absolute silence, the brain will complement them with sound hallucinations.

Hallucinations

One interesting experiment with guided hallucinations was conducted by TV host and inventor Derek Müller, who locked himself in an anechoic and completely darkened chamber for 45 minutes to conduct a sensory deprivation experiment. 

His brain, which at once lost 90% of the signals from the outside world, remained fully functional, and Derek did not go crazy. Moreover, in the absence of external stimuli, he began to feel the subtlest vibrations of his heart and the flow of blood through the veins. 

It was not a hallucination, it was just that the brain switched to processing the signals that remained at its disposal, amplifying them and presenting them in the form of sensations understandable to the mind.

Angels showed the End of the World to a child from Indonesia?

In early October, on many eschatological and conspiracy sites (The End Times Forecaster , 444prophecynews.com), a video was posted by a girl named Jacqueline, who lives in South Africa. The video tells that on September 16, in some altered state of consciousness, similar to a lucid dream, Jacqueline was given a warning: on October 10, 2020, there will be some kind of nightmarish geological catastrophe – either a volcanic eruption, or an earthquake. 

Jacqueline does not specify where the catastrophe will occur, but immediately after the volcanic eruption, she saw President Trump in Washington and the destruction of the Washington Monument with fiery stones falling from the sky. The full text of Jacqueline’s video was posted on the forum and can be viewed at the link, but her revelation itself is not very informative. It is only clear that on October 10 something may bang, and very strongly. Another thing is much more interesting. 

Since Jacqueline was shown truly creepy things, she, like anyone in her place, doubted that all this was true. However, she noticed that in her dream, before the horror broadcast began, she was shown a calendar on which she read the KIMIKO inscription.

“Kimiko” is a popular Japanese female name that literally means “wonderful unusual child”, so Jacqueline decided: if she got it right, then she needed to look for a girl from somewhere in Japan who would kind of hint at her deciphering what was shown in her dream. 

Kimiko was never found, but another girl named Catherine was found. She lives in Indonesia, is in 4th grade and is 9 years old. Jacqueline had her dream on September 16, and on September 18 some angels took this Catherine to heaven in a dream and showed her what would be on Earth in the very near future. 

According to Catherine, everything will begin on October 10, 2020, when some kind of catastrophe occurs – a catastrophe, most likely of a geological nature. Buildings will collapse and coastal cities will suffer from terrible tsunamis. At the same time, a terrible rain will pour, which in some regions will flood buildings up to the fourth floor. Thunder will thunder in the sky, which is 10 or even 20 times stronger than ordinary thunder, and after the thunder, hail will fall the size of a car windshield. But besides the hail, all the planes located there fall from the sky. 

However, the End of the World will not happen as life goes on and Trump wins the US election. After that, Israel will begin to restore the Temple, but they will not have time, since a war will start around. At this moment, the Earth will face unprecedented catastrophes.

A huge new planet will appear in the sky and the atmosphere will take on a reddish tint. It will get hotter. H achnut erupting volcanoes, and terrifying winds will become commonplace. And further, in the region of the Bermuda Triangle, a hole is formed in the lithosphere, and armada of some strange flying machines will appear from there. On TV they will say that these are good aliens. 

In parallel , a total vaccination will take place on Earth, after which people who have received the vaccine will be endowed with some unthinkable ability to communicate with their gadgets – phones will show them everything at the click of a finger and connect to subscribers with the power of thought. But happiness will not last long, because then the skin of the vaccinated will begin to turn green and many will be covered with ulcers. Further, these people mutate into a kind of zombie who will engage in cannibalism and those who have not taken the vaccine will become their preferred food. And for those who will not be eaten by mutants, aliens will chase in their flying cars, kidnap, throw bombs at them and burn them with rays. 

Finally, to top it all off, mutations will affect flora and fauna. So, insects will become gigantic, and algae will begin to crawl ashore and whoever gets into their nets will be devoured. Mutations will affect birds, jellyfish, and the rest of the fauna. Dinosaurs and real fire-breathing dragons will appear, which will fly everywhere and pour fire on everything. 

In general, the girl tells something that is impossible to believe – no reality can stand that. However, the probability that reality is real, according to estimates of the theory of probability, is no more than 50%. That is, we live in the Matrix with a probability of 1/2, although nothing can be proved / disproved somehow. But if we take into account various strange quantum effects and other miracles, then the probability of the Matrix is ​​already seventy percent and 30% remain for a flat / round Earth, for the rest of “natural science”. Therefore, maybe we are now on the eve of the reboot of the Matrix, during which we will begin to load characters from other entertaining games. 

It is possible, of course, that all these stories were invented by her mother, but similar stories are told by other children, and even adults, who were thrown either somewhere into the astral plane, or into the next world, or generally into the deepest warp. Different, unrelated people cannot tell the same tale. Therefore, most likely this is not a fairy tale and there is something in all this. But what – here we do not know, so we just have to wait and see.

Clinical death helped the inveterate egoist to change his attitude towards life. He is grateful for this experience

William F. did not live the most righteous life. His selfish, authoritarian behavior caused a lot of suffering to the people around him, especially his wife. And it is not known how his marriage would have ended if one day William had not had an accident.

On that fateful day, November 6, 2019, a man was riding a motorcycle and crashed into a truck as it changed lanes. William tried unsuccessfully to get out from under the heavy truck, as his helmet got stuck under the front axle of the car.

A policeman was the first to come to help, then an ambulance arrived. The motorcyclist was evacuated by helicopter to the hospital. The man in the helicopter told William not to sleep, but he collapsed into unconsciousness.

What William saw in oblivion made a strong impression on him and changed his future life.

William’s near-death experiences

The next thing I remember happened on a large field. There was a fence about 100 meters away from me. There was a black hole in the fence on the other side of the gate.

I was drawn to the gate. The closer I got, the more love and warmth I felt, the more selfishness and bad feelings went away.

When the gate was about five steps away, and I was about to open it, someone’s hand stopped me, grabbing my forearm. Looking at this man, I noticed a few more.

– You need to stop. I watched you for a long time, son, you made a lot of mistakes. Do you know where you are? The man asked.
“I’m not sure,” I said, looking around.
“You are dead,” he said.

I panicked.

“You’re scared,” he remarked.
– No.
“Then [during your life] you were always afraid of it for no reason,” he said softly. I nodded in agreement, and our dialogue continued.
– Do you feel that everything is under your control?
“I don’t know… no.
– You have never controlled anything in your life. It’s an illusion …
– Yes, you’re right, – I nodded again.
– You are given a choice that many do not have. God gives you a choice: come back and correct your mistakes, or you can go through the gate. If you enter this gate, all the regrets of life will torment your soul until you are given another chance. It will feel like eternity.

I still have regrets about my past life, ”he added after a pause. – If you come back and do not start working on yourself to become better, if you do not find happiness in the righteous way, you will always remember and crave the feeling that you are experiencing in this place now, but you will not get here again.
When you return, recover, heart and mind will be restored. You are given something great … But you understand that God already knows your choice.

Then he looked at me and asked:

– What are you going to do?
“I’ll be back,” I replied.

At that moment, the feelings that gripped me were gone, and I let go of the gate.

“See you again very soon,” he said at last.

Then I woke up and saw my mother. I told her that I was back for good and that I would not go anywhere. She had a tired face.

“You’ve been in a lot of pain,” she said.

I said that everything would be all right with me, and told that I saw Him. She clarified who exactly. I replied that I did not know for sure, but they gave me a second chance. Mom laughed and said that probably my grandfather kicked me in the ass to bring me back here.

William’s life has changed

William underwent several operations, but the doctors said that physically he would not be the same. Among other things, the man had to learn to walk again.

About a month after the accident, thoughts of the pain inflicted on his loved ones and loved ones flooded into William, so he focused on correcting the mistakes of the past and changing his future.

Five months later, William was walking without limping. Now she runs for several kilometers, and the only evidence of an accident is scars.

The biggest proof of the reality of what he saw during clinical death is a complete change in himself, says William.

“I saw mistakes, especially in my relationship with my wife, and I understand things that I didn’t understand before. It is strange to think that someone was watching my life from a distance and knew about my actions. If I had not changed, I would have yearned for death. “

“I used to have sociopathic tendencies and no empathy. I have never felt guilt or remorse. Now I am selfless and empathetic, I feel the emotions of others, and it is overwhelming. I know how people feel just by looking at them. This is a kind of intuition.

Remorse and guilt help me re-evaluate the past. I also notice that when I do something instinctively, in the old way, I realize it and I can stop. “

“People believe when I share my experience because they see a big change in me.”
