Salem: Who’s Real and Who’s Not

Pope Gregory XIII, when reorganizing the old Julian calendar, established January 1st as New Year's Day in 1582. Protestants who wouldn't dare follow such Popeish nonsense continued marking April 1st as New Year's Day...hence, April Fool's Day.


Reverend Cotton Mather, in his Magnalia Christi Americana, recorded what can be described today as a major UFO sighting. Mather received a letter from a Pastor in New Haven, Connecticut, that described the “apparition of a ship in the air.” A large vessel was lost at sea in 1646, and one year later witnesses observed this ship appear in the sky above New Haven.
