Doug's Darkworld

Greetings, blogographers! In our little corner of the internet today, I will be writing about a blog that has absolutely captured my own heart, in more ways than just one. It is an elegantly written blog with a minimalist layout, allowing for the words to speak to the reader for themselves. This blog is Doug's Darkworld.

"Welcome to Doug’s Darkworld, a blog about war, mysteries, history, strange things, science, logic, photography, cosmology, paleontology, anthropology,  current events, religion, propaganda, philosophy, psychology, sociology,  ghosts, paranormal events, movies, astronomy, space exploration, metaphysics, foreign policy, propaganda, and whatever else strikes my fancy. As the esteemed Robert A. Heinlein said: 'Specialization is for insects.'"
-from Doug's Darkworld blog 

Doug's Darkworld features a lot of my favorite discussion topics as premises for the posts, and naturally this piqued my blogging curiosity. I happened upon the blog as a bit of research for a short paper I am going to be publishing on the Conspiraverse site on the Philadelphia Experiment -- a supposed experiment taking place in 1943 off of Philadelphia that forced a destroyer ship to teleport hundreds of miles away in the blink of an eye, as well as merging some people to the ship's hull itself. There's even talk that some people disappeared entirely.

Anyhow, the guy over at Conspiraverse and I were chatting about the Dyatlov Pass Incident, which he linked amidst my Philadelphia Experiment research as a comparison event. There is an excellent post on Doug's Darkworld blog about the incident. Essentially, a bunch of Russian hikers got stuck in a snowstorm and exhibited odd behavior, like undressing in the clutches of a snowstorm and running miles away. 

Doug's take on all of these events really captures the sort of truly intellectual stance that I feel more people should be at least open to, if not embracing. I am proud to represent a mind like Doug's on my blog feature, and I encourage you to take a look at Doug's Darkworld.
