    The Untold Truth Of Lilith

    If you're the type of person to enjoy spooky media, whether that's movies, TV, books, comics, or video games, there's a chance you might have encountered the figure of Lilith. Depending on the source, you might know her as Adam's real first wife who preceded Eve, or maybe as the first vampire, or a succubus who gives men sexy dreams.

    The Untold Truth Of The Garden Of Eden

    The Garden of Eden, the terrestrial Paradise known also as the Garden of God, is one of the most famous settings in the Bible.

    Beautiful Baby Names That Have An Ugly History

    You can't judge a book by its cover, and you can't judge a name by its history. These baby names are absolutely gorgeous, but they have some pretty ugly stories behind them. "What's in a name?" Shakespeare asked in his tragic play Romeo and Juliet. While the Bard was a literary genius, I'm not so sure I can agree with the idea that names don't matter. If these names were as awful as their histories, they would probably be forgotten today.
