Couple claim 'possessed' doll has caused car crashes and illnesses

So, two "mystery illnesses", one of which affected a friend who presumably had little or no contact with the doll, "a spate of car accident near-misses that they also attributed to its influence" (so no accidents), and a seance table flipped over. Well, I had Covid, so did work colleagues, we all didn't have car accidents, and probably someone broke some furniture, so perhaps we are all similarly unaffected by the haunted doll.

This is how religions started ......  ;)     Bad things happen.   Why?   Well, it's because .....   and if you do this ....... it won;t happen again.   And coincidences never ever happen*

Humans haven't really changed in thousands of years.

 

 

*  statistically coincidences actually happen surprisingly often, far to often to be just a coincidence ;)

Lee and Linzi Steer, who own the Museum of Haunted Objects in Rotherham, England, acquired the doll back in 2019 from a donor who believed that it was possessed and caused car accidents.

Nothing like drumming up a little business.

Let's face it..... Many dolls look sinister, and it makes you wonder why their owners don't throw them in the trash.

WRONG!  Most people don't think like this.  Some people are just brain-dead throwbacks.

In rural India, witch doctors are the preferred first choice for treatments after a snake bite. The reason - most snakes in India aren't poisonous, so a witch doctor has a 90% success rate in treatment.

In the 10% they can't "cure", a doctor may be called- by then, the poison has caused septicaemia, the doctors success rate in saving the patient's life with anti-venom is only perhaps 5% of the patients they see. 

So, it is a no-brainer for the villagers- if you get bitten by a snake, if you want to live, you need to get to a witch doctor fast.

Im not at all surprized just some attention seekers doing it by claiming a doll was haunted based on a made up story about a haunted doll.

How much of this tale was inspired by the horror movie, Annabelle series? The Warrens have always been peddling dookey stories like Amittyville (sp) horror etc.

100% of the snakes in india are not posionous, though some are venomous.

Well, my whole family has just been through the wringer with "mystery illnesses" that they chalked up as seasonal sinus issues.

My mom had a car accident a few days ago & we have near misses on the road all the time.

Is it Annabelle? My mystery vibrating hanger I'd posted about? Bad medical advice & bad drivers? I'm figuring it's the last, but that could just be me. ;)

And the warrens made a great living off duping people, never once proving anything but hey when joe nickells called out ed warren ed warren didnt show nickells proof he threatened him, speaks volumes.
