It was a really rough week to be a true believer. Here is a rundown of the faith-based and fantasy news courtesy of Doubtful News.

A deranged woman attempts to kill her mother thinking she is the anti-Christ.

Another deranged woman tells police she killed 22 people as a member of a Satanic cult. The Satanists disavow all connections.


Parents who sacrificed not one but two children to faith healing instead of medical treatment get jail time.

In the ultimate in blind faith, Pentecostal preacher Jamie Coots paid the ultimate price for snake handling. After being bitten repeatedly during services, he succumbs to a fatal dose of venom. The snake lives. His son vows to continue.

Ghosts were in the bathroom, scaring children and they were in an old pub scaring up some new business.

Want some of serial scammer Kevin Trudeau's supposedly worthless assets? Well, they are tasteless, I'll give him that.

You heard it here first. There is a worldwide UFO hoax planned by remote control tech people. If you hear the aliens are invading on April 5… now you know.

And finally, this story was so awful, it nearly made me sick. A family trusts a psychic to lead them to think their child died of a vaccine-related injury.
