Mysterious Shipwreck Discovered Beneath Florida’s Ponte Vedra Beach

Shiver me timbers!

Volunteers patrolling a Florida beach last week stumbled upon a mysterious buried boat that may date to the early 1900s.

The shipwreck was first discovered on Oct. 16 by Peggy Friedmann, a volunteer turtle patroller at Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, reports local station First Coast News.

“I saw a part of the ribs of the boat sticking out of the sand,” Friedmann, who was combing a stretch of Ponte Vedra Beach at the time, told First Coast News.

Friedmann’s sharp eyes were doubtless aided by recent storms, which had shifted the sand around the ship and exposed parts of its timbers. In any case, word of the discovery eventually reached local archaeologist Chuck Meide, who set out with a team from St. Augustine’s Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program to investigate the boat’s newly exposed wooden ribs and keel, reports local station News4Jax.

“It’s always exciting for an archeologists to find a new shipwreck,” Meide told News4Jax. “We know the First Coast is littered with wrecks. We had visitors to St. Augustine in the 1780s who said you couldn’t walk 50 paces down the beach without running into the old wooden bones of a … wreck.”

Indeed, Florida is so known for its shipwrecks that the National Park Service made a map of some of the state’s most popular finds. Vital to the region’s development for centuries, Florida’s location amid maritime trade routes from multiple continents has made it a treasure trove for historians and adventure seekers.

Researchers hope that this recently uncovered ship’s construction methods will offer some clues as to where and when it came from, notes News4Jax. Meide has so far speculated that the boat may have been a shrimper from the early 20th century.

Local community website Ponte Vedra Now speculates that the wreck may be part of an oiler named the Fortuna II, which became stranded in the area back in 1938.

“There are probably about 450 shipwrecks off the Northeast Florida coast,” the website notes. “In fact, the sandbars offshore of the St. Augustine Fort are home to more shipwrecks from the 16th and 17th century than any place in America except the Florida Keys.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
