At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

THIS DAY IN WEIRD


On This Day in Weird, April 29...

1980: Leland Jensen, a convicted child molester and founder of a splinter sect called Bahá'ís Under the Provisions of the Covenant, predicts the destruction of Earth in a nuclear holocaust. When that prophecy flops, Jensen recalculates, announcing that Halley's Comet will be drawn into Earth's orbit on the same date in 1986, colliding with Earth precisely one year later. Wrong again, on both counts.
