When asked what I would like to write
about for this issue of the Dot Connector, the first thing that came
out of my mouth was,
"The Golden Age and how we got from there to
where we are now and what it all means."
That is the topic that has been
exercising my thinking for a number of years and I gave it an
Witches, Comets and Planetary Cataclysms,
where the topic was how the feminine energy of our society was
debased step-by-step over millennia, as a consequence of planetary
cataclysm beginning with the Great Deluge, also known as the Flood
But noticing what has happened is not the same as
explaining why and how it could happen sociologically speaking. In
that article I wrote the following:
"Regarding the alleged Flood of Noah, we can say that at more than
one point in our known history, civilizations and cultures have
collapsed and/or disappeared or been destroyed by
Researchers in the fields of archaeology and history are baffled by
the lack of any direct archaeological or written explanations for
the causes (as opposed to the effects), though there is a rich body
of myth and folklore that very well might provide the answers if
Some decades ago, certain natural scientists became intrigued by the
problem and, concentrating on the Bronze Age collapses listed above,
realized that the range of evidence suggested natural causes rather
than human actions like invasion or warfare. So, they all started
talking about climate change, volcanic activity, and earthquakes.
present, these types of explanations are actually included in some
of the standard historical accounts of the Bronze Age period, though
many problems still remain: no single explanation appeared to
account for all the evidence.
Immanuel Velikovsky upset everyone by suggesting that the Exodus -
but only the Exodus - was caused by a bombardment of rocks, dust,
carbons and so on as a result of Venus running amok in the Solar
He collected an amazing assortment of myths and legends from
around the world that strongly suggested that some sort of global
cataclysm was being described, but when, where and how, exactly, it
happened was rather iffy.
There were others who wrote and talked
about these matters before Velikovsky, including Ignatious Donnelly,
who deserves an honorable mention for ascribing the myths to the
Great Flood of Noah which he claimed was actually the destruction of
Atlantis as described by Plato.
Whether or not there was an advanced
civilization known as Atlantis is not our concern here, but whether
or not there was a flood, and when it may have occurred, is."
One thing I want to do is address this last remark above:
here is whether or not there was an advanced civilization known as
Atlantis and if there was, what sociological processes might have
been involved in its rise and subsequent fall, how mankind lost this
knowledge, and whether these elements are related by a common factor
that is present in our own civilization leading us in the same
Obviously, this is a topic for a book, and a book is
forthcoming, but for now, I'd just like to give an overview.
One of the first problems faced when dealing with this topic is the
issue of the falsification of history and the corruption of
scientific knowledge. Normally, for a book treatment, I would devote
several chapters to this aspect alone, citing examples and
I don't have that kind of space so I'll recommend books
by others and hope the reader will excuse my economy of words. This
is a complex problem with many interrelating elements, and, while I
have a great deal of material that backs up my hypothesis presented
here, I don't have the space for it. (I will write future articles
on individual elements, however, and it will all ultimately go into
I mentioned in Witches, Comets and Planetary Cataclysms that the
historical record of the past that we consider 'truth' nowadays, was
constructed at the end of a long period of planetary devastation
(the Dark Ages followed by the Black Death) and this was done to
restore order and control.
The Powers-That-Be of the time, which is
the same at about any time - religious and elite-class controllers -
set about to deliberately establish a view of the past that placed
themselves firmly in the seats of power, legitimating that authority
in the eyes of the masses; masses that are true believers in what
the elite tell them are much easier to manage.
We can observe the
same thing taking place in our own day, one example being
Christianity transformed from a religion of love, caring and peace
to one of war and retribution.
Actually, it just cycles around
because it was utilized similarly in 11th and 12th centuries which
followed the Dark Ages, now strongly suspected to have been a time
of cometary disaster in Europe. We might also notice that it was
shortly afterwards that the Black Death came to Europe.
even prompt us to consider the possibility that there is a
cause-effect relationship between periods of oppression of the
masses by the elite and cosmic intervention that levels the playing
field, so to say. (That's grist for another article! Look for it in
a coming issue!)
I've spent the past eight years or so buried in texts relating to
astronomy, geology, paleontology, archaeology, sociology,
anthropology, linguistics, genetics studies and more. The corruption
of science that I discovered there is another whole article.
also spent years reading a mountain of revisionist history by
authors such as,
...and many others.
(This short list is not a
recommendation and the absence of any other name is not a dismissal
of their work - just the names that come immediately to mind to
describe the genre. I do particularly like Andrew Collins and Knight
I would like to note that the word 'revisionism' somehow
carries a negative connotation, but the fact is that constant
revision of history as new data comes to light, is a normal part of
the scholarly process.
What I found - or realized - was that it would certainly be a very
good idea if the revisionists were well trained in the scientific
method, because they most certainly could make their cases tighter
without so many careless mistakes or baseless assumptions. But, on
the other hand, as for the work of the 'credentialed' scientists, I
found it to not be credible at all.
Despite the superior
methodology, financial backing, institutional and peer support, much
of it descends into nonsense when one realizes what is being omitted
in order to support the a priori premises on which are built such
elaborate, circular cognitive edifices.
So, let's get started. There are some indispensable concepts that I
need to get out of the way before we get to the fun part:
speculation on the available data.
Alexander Zinoviev, formerly of Moscow State University, was a
logician and sociologist, winner of the 1982 Alexis Tocqueville
prize for sociology, and member of many eminent academic societies
and organizations, i.e., pretty mainstream, but, as we shall see, he
obviously wasn't happy with the way science was being practiced.
wrote the following in the Foreword to mathematician, Anatoly Fomenko's, seminal work,
History - Fiction or Science:
"...What A.T. Fomenko and his colleagues had learnt over the course
of their research was the fact that the entire history of humanity
up until the XVII century is a forgery of global proportions - a
falsification as deliberate as it is universal...
The first global falsification of history as discovered and
brilliantly related by Fomenko was based on an erroneous temporal
and spatial coordinate system of chronological events."
Fomenko, History: Fiction or Science, Vol. 1, Delamere Resources,
It is unfortunate that neither Zinoviev nor Fomenko have factored in
historical or social discontinuities due to cataclysmic disruption
which can make it so easy for ruthless individuals to seize power
and re-create the past according to the needs of the present.
As I pointed out in Witches, Comets and Planetary Cataclysms the
falsification of history that Fomenko has clearly identified
occurred at the end of 300 years of disaster piled on disaster
beginning with the decimation of the population of Europe by the
Black Death. This certainly fits Zinoviev's model that, at a certain
point, the old, distorted representation of history no longer serves
and a new legitimation of authority is required to restore peace and
keep the masses under control.
What Fomenko notes is that the
temporal and spatial parameters of much later times were imposed on
the stories of the more distant past, but that does not entirely
invalidate those stories; it just means that things were
re-established and what was familiar to the 'trained specialists'
was utilized to give the new view of the past a more realistic
In the following remarks, Zinoviev is talking about the ongoing
falsification of history that is active today, here and now - and
notice that he designates the theory of evolution as the breakpoint
of this process, thereafter to be utilized as the standard-model
"My sociological research of the great evolutionary breakpoint
demonstrated that a new, blatant, global and premeditated
falsification was already in full swing. Prior to becoming familiar
with the writings of Fomenko, I had already known that the
falsification of the past was a rather common phenomenon inherent in
However, I was neither aware of the scale of this
fraud as described by Fomenko and his fellow scholars, nor of its
social type. My assumption had been that the blatant falsification
of history on a planetary scale that I had discovered was... the
involuntary routine falsification of minor details that results from
the mechanisms of gnosis... or the entropy inherent in the
framework of humanity's historical memory.
Its main subject is
modern history... [and] it is the extraordinary, premeditated and
complex falsification that has distinct social causes... [Fomenko's
discoveries] differ from [this] in terms of pertaining to a

Like Zinoviev, I had also become aware of the
history and I also thought it was just an accumulation of innocent
"Even if we are to suppose that all those who partake in the
creation of historical records see veracity as their mission, the
result of their collective efforts is often the rendition of their
own subjective views on history as opposed to what happened in
As centuries pass by, the stream of disinformation is fed
by various sources and tributaries, which, in their multitude,
produce the effect of impartial falsification of historical events.
This stream also feeds on murky rivulets of countless liars and
The false model serves its function for a certain while. However,
humanity eventually enters a period when this distorted
representation loses efficacy and stops serving its ends. This is
where people are supposed to start searching for explanations and
set out on their quest for a 'truth'..."
(Fomenko, op. cit.)
In short, Zinoviev is talking about exactly what has happened in our
own recent history and before we continue with his conclusions about
it, let us take a quick look at something I wrote in my book, Secret
"Richard Dolan's UFOs and the National Security State is the first
comprehensive study of the past 50 years of the U.S. government's
response to the intrusion of UFO phenomena in America.
evidence - which includes government documents - suggests that a
group of specialists working in the shadows, set up and executed the
most massive cover-up in the history of government; and that the
Human Potential movement and the subsequent
New Age movements, were
key elements of this cover-up.
In other words, they not only have

Cointelpro was the FBI's secret program to undermine the popular
upsurge, which swept the country during the 1960s.

groups could serve many functions which might include attacking
and/or disrupting bona fide groups, or even just simply creating a
diversion with clever propaganda in order to attract members away so
as to involve them with time-wasting activity designed to prevent
them from doing anything useful. Cointelpro was also famous for
instigation of hostile actions through third parties...
Now, let us take a few logical steps.
The UFO problem emerged into
the national consciousness in 1947, or thereabouts. Not long
afterward, a lot of people began asking a lot of questions. The
government wasn't answering, and so the people began to band
together to find out the answers for themselves. They started
forming groups. And this is where things get just a bit curious.
thing that was most threatened by the UFO/alien issue seems to have
Standard Monotheistic Religions.
Religion seems to be a
necessary component of political control. Social control - that is
the mainstay of religion - was most definitely under threat. In
fact, what seems to be true is that it is not even clear that
religions - as we know them - would have survived a full
disclosure. So the logical conclusion is that part of the main
reason for the cover-up was to 'protect the religious status quo'.
As things stood at the time, protecting the religious status quo -
mainly the social controls that stem from religion - was iffy at
best. After a century of scholarly investigation into many religious
texts, and the raising of many questions about the 'old time
religion', there were a lot of people in society who were most
definitely turning away from religious dogma.
It's fairly simple to
take the next logical step and see that a combining of the questions
of those who were disenchanted with religion, with the questions of
those who wanted to know just what the heck was going on in terms of
possible 'extraterrestrials', was seen as a dangerous and explosive
mixture. Something had to be done.
The activities of COINTELPRO in attempting to neutralize political
opposition have been pretty well exposed. But we are now considering
the fact that, in addition to political activists, it seems that
COINTELPRO has particularly targeted groups that are seeking the
truth about the interactions between the U.S. government and ultraterrestrials, or
That a long-time cover-up
of these matters has been in effect is certainly evident to any
The COINTELPRO files show the U.S. government targeted a very broad
range of religious, labor and community groups opposed to any of its
agendas, and it is only logical to assume that the same type of
operation would be created to cover up the 'alien agenda'.
theoretical COINTELPRO operation also goes far in explaining why,
when the sincere researcher of UFO phenomena enters this field, he
or she discovers only lies, lies, and more lies; confusion and
disinformation. That is most definitely the signature of COINTELPRO.
What all of this seems to suggest is that the Powers-That-Be (ptb)
have developed COINTELPRO to an all new level of social shaping,
cultural brainwashing, and the main targets of this activity would
include virtually anyone who is seeking the truth about the shifting
realities of our world. The cases of COINTELPRO activities against
political groups must be no more than the tip of the iceberg, given
that the great bulk of COINTELPRO-type operations remain secret
until long after their damage has been done.
By all indications,
domestic covert operations have become a permanent feature of U.S.
politics and social programming, and it is hardly likely,
considering the evidence, that the New Age and Human Potential
fields are exempt.
The implications of this are truly alarming. Those who manage to get
close to the truth of these matters, despite the many obstacles in
their path, face national covert campaigns to discredit and disrupt
their research and reputations. Clearly, COINTELPRO and similar
operations under other names also work to distort academic and
popular perceptions of the problems facing our world.
They have done
enormous damage to the search for the Truth."
(The Secret History of the World, 2006.)
Now, let's get back to what Zinoviev wrote, with the above model in
mind for comparison:
"One becomes aware of the necessity to update our view of the past
in accordance with whatever the present stipulates.
is the kind of craving that can only be satisfied by a 'bona fide
rectification' of history, which has to occur as a grandiose
paradigm shift - moreover, it has to be a large-scale organized
operation; one that shall result in an epochal falsification of the
entire history of humankind.
The issue at hand is by no means the falsification of individual
observations of historical events, but rather the revision of the
entirety of historical records describing the events which cannot be
observed as a principle since they belong to the past...
Trained specialists are a sine qua non for this - people whose
activity shall have to be organized in such a manner that their
collective output will result in the creation of a coordinated
historical Gestalt. What they really have to do is create exactly
the kind of past that is needed for the present, making use of
whatever available material presents itself.
The more recent and ongoing... global falsification of history is
based on a system of erroneous pseudoscientific sociological
concepts based upon ideology and aided greatly by the modern
information manipulation technology.
Fomenko's works describe the
technology of building a false model of human history which uses the
art of manipulating the temporal and spatial coordinates of events.
Many thousands of specialists in false historical models are already
working on this second falsification - their forte is the ability to
misrepresent historical events while giving correct temporal and
spatial coordinates and representing individual facts veraciously
and in full detail.
The actual falsification is achieved via the
selection of facts, their combination and interpretation, as well as
the context of ideological conceptions, propagandist texts that they
are immersed into, etc."
(Fomenko, op. cit.)
That is a grim indictment on science and the academic community,
isn't it? Is it true?
I've spent eight years immersed in this
material, pulling on threads, following references back to their
point of origin, reading archaeological site reports, entire books
that analyze the techniques of chipping stone and what that might
reveal about the stone chippers, and more. At the end of it, I can
only say that Zinoviev is correct.
The question arises immediately:
Some time ago I read social anthropologist Nachman ben-Yehuda's
exposé of the archaeology of Masada: Sacrificing Truth - Archaeology
the Myth of Masada.
He is another honest scientist who has taken
note of this phenomenon and undertook to document it in detail.
like a contagion, a spreading disease across all levels of society,
and it seems that it originates in pseudo-science that has taken
over the field of science, insinuating a completely different
content of meaning under what were formerly clear scientific terms
This has infected all fields of research exactly as
Zinoviev has said.
Let me say here:
I do think that the scientific method of cognition
is one of the best tools we have for understanding our reality, but
I have to say that the way it is wielded in mainstream science
reveals that it has become more or less doublespeak: a term that
originally meant one thing but whose meaning has gradually been
When you hear it bandied about nowadays, you can be
pretty certain that its user is not being the least bit scientific
in the original sense of the word but is rather a true believer in
the religion of science.
Now, let's come back to the fact that Zinoviev mentions specifically
the 'evolutionary breakpoint' - that is, the moment in our history
when the theory of evolution entered the stage of history and became
the ideological underpinning for the development of pseudo-science.
(Here, the book to read is William R. Fix's
The Bone Peddlers:
On the CBS Evening News of January 6, 1981, Dan Rather recounted
how, during the presidential campaign the previous autumn, Ronald
Reagan had told an audience in Texas that he had,
"a great many
questions about evolutionary theory" and further asserted that the
theory "is not believed in the scientific community to be as
infallible as it once was believed."
Obviously, Reagan was courting
the Bible-Belt voters.
But, since Reagan had presumed to speak for
the scientific community, it was not a surprise when said
'community' wanted to respond and this was the item that Dan Rather
The spokesmen for the American Association for the Advancement of
Science (AAAS) characterized Reagan's statement as "tremendously

Science historian, William Fix, examines the fossil
evidence with some care and this turns out not to be true at all.
fact, there is so much evidence of falsification, fraud, and
irrational belief among paleoanthropologists that one wonders why
some of these 'eminent scientists' haven't been run out of town on a
rail, tarred and feathered, or even - in some cases - arrested and
tried for fraud.
What was extraordinary about the AAAS statement was not just that
they characterized the statement of the President elect of the
United States as "tremendously unfortunate" but that they made the
ridiculous claim that "100 million fossils constitute 100 million
facts that prove evolution", a claim that Fix demolishes completely.
In March of the same year, 1981, a Judge Irving Perluss heard the
case of one Kelly Segraves vs. the State of California. Segraves,
director of the Creation-Science Research Center in San Diego, sued
claiming violation of the religious freedom rights of his children
in California schools.
The claim was that since California school
board policy does not allow the 'divine origin theory' to be taught
in biology, this was a violation of principle.
The judge ruled that
the rights of Segraves' children had not been violated but - and
this is a big one - the judge ordered statewide distribution of an
earlier school board statement cautioning that textbooks should
avoid dogmatism on the question of man's origin.
In short, textbooks
could not claim evolution as an established fact, but must make it
clear that it is only a theory.
Fossils are facts, and the facts tell a different story
than the one
evolutionist would have us believe
This trial made big news (which is interesting in itself) and Time
magazine headlined it: "Darwin Goes On Trial Again" (March 16,
The Time article noted that, over the previous several years,
apparently fundamentalism was on the rise and pressure from such
groups had already forced changes in biology textbooks. In one such
text, the discussion of the origins of life had been cut from 2000
words in the 1974 edition to 332 words in the 1977 edition. This
sort of thing is more and more common in our current day.
important here is that we see in these events the lines being drawn
at the same point in time that several other interesting things were
happening. The timing is so exact I scratched my head and said
"Huh?!" when I noticed it.
It relates to something I
wrote about in
my book, Secret History:
"What strikes me as an essential turning point in this
operation was the beginning of the 'expose' of two particular items
that hold sway in certain 'conspiracy' circles to this very day:
alien abduction and Satanic Ritual Abuse.
The Gray alien scenario was 'leaked' by Budd Hopkins.
Strieber's alien abduction books, including Communion, followed a
few years after. Prior to the publication of these books, the
ubiquitous 'Gray aliens' had never been seen before. In fact, a
review of the history of 'contact' cases shows that the type and
variety and behavior of 'aliens' around the world are quite
different across the board. But, along came Budd, followed by
Whitley and his glaring alien on the cover, and suddenly the Grays
In respect of Whitley and his Grays, allow me to emphasize one of
Dolan's comments quoted above:
"By early 1969, teams within the CIA
were running a number of bizarre experiments in mind control under
the name 'Operation Often'. In addition to the normal assortment of
chemists, biologists, and conventional scientists, the operation
employed psychics and experts in demonology."
This, of course,
brings us to the parallel event of that period of time: Satanic
SRA is the name given to the allegedly systematic
abuse of children (and others) by Satanists.
Whitley Strieber's book 'Communion'
brought the concept of 'gray
aliens' to the masses
As it happens, keeping our timeline in mind, it was in the mid- to
late-1970s that the allegations of the existence of a
"well-organized intergenerational satanic cult whose members
sexually molest, torture and murder children across the United
States", began to emerge in America.
There was a panic regarding SRA
triggered by a fictional book called Michelle Remembers.
was published as fact but has subsequently been shown by at least
three independent investigators to have been a hoax. No hard
evidence of Satanic Ritual Abuse in North America has ever been
found, just as no hard evidence of abductions by Gray aliens has
ever been found.
Nevertheless, the allegations were widely
publicized on radio and television talk shows, including Geraldo
Religious fundamentalists promoted the hysteria and, just as during
the Inquisitions, endless self-proclaimed 'moral entrepreneurs' both
fed the fires of prosecution and earned a good living from it. Most
of the early accusations of SRA were aimed at working-class people
with limited resources, and with a few exceptions, the media and
other groups that are ordinarily skeptical either remained silent or
joined in the feeding frenzy of accusations.
The few professionals
who spoke out against the hysteria were systematically attacked and
discredited by government agencies and private organizations...
Now, let's go back and think about our timeline. As it happens,
Michelle Remembers was published in 1980, co-written by Michelle
Smith and Lawrence Pazder, M.D. Budd Hopkins finished Missing Time
in December of 1980, with an 'afterword' by Aphrodite Clamar, Ph.D.
It's looking pretty 'coincidental' from where I sit."
Of particular note in the above passage is the fact that,
"with a few
exceptions, the media and other groups that are ordinarily skeptical
either remained silent or joined in the feeding frenzy of
accusations. The few professionals who spoke out against the
hysteria were systematically attacked and discredited by government
agencies and private organizations."
Keep this in mind as we review
what the media was - at the same time - publishing about science.
The Time magazine article mentioned above gave more background on
the Reagan/AAAS affair noting that Reagan had said that if evolution
is taught in public schools,
"the biblical story of creation should
also be taught."
Many educators interviewed for the article were
shocked at the upsurge in biblical fundamentalism (why should they
be shocked with the promotion of SRA and alien abduction going on in
the background?) and its effect on society, mainly education.
writers emphasized that many creationists actually believe that the
world was created in 6 literal days only about 5 to 10 thousand
The problem here is: why is there even a problem? As Fix notes, of
all the straw men that science has been tasked with knocking over,
the belief in the recent creation of the earth in any context should
be among the easiest, especially if the evidence for evolution is as
overwhelming as they claim!
Part of the problem was the AAAS itself and its senior members and
spokesmen. For some reason that we can only guess, considering what
I have included about Cointelpro above, these individuals were being
set up as spokesmen for the solution to - or antithesis of - the
burgeoning spiritual crisis that was taking place in society.
Time magazine article quoted paleontologist,
Stephen Jay Gould, as
"That evolution occurred is a fact. People evolved from ape
ancestors even though we can argue about how it happened. Scientists
are debating mechanism, not fact."
Considering that ordinary people
were being scared out of their wits by alleged spiritual attackers
in the form of Satanists and satanic aliens, on Geraldo no less, for
someone like Gould to come along and say this only gives the average
person the impression that he - and all his scientific fellows - are
personal representatives of Satan himself!
The fact is, the evolution issue is not quite as secure and settled
as the AAAS and some of its senior members claim. Internationally
respected paleontologist, Bjorn Keurten, also an evolutionist,
thinks that the human line has been separate from that of the apes
for more than 35 million years and that it is more likely that apes
descended from early man-types.
The troubling thing about this is the evident propagandistic nature
of it. That is to say, Gould is dogmatic and ignores the fact that
some very eminent scientists do not subscribe to the party line of
the AAAS. Gould does not even attempt to make the elementary
distinction between an opinion and an unequivocal assertion that may
not be true!
And so, lines are being drawn in the sand for some
reason that we hope to understand as we proceed.
There is more evidence that this was a very definite propaganda
The April 1981 issue of Science Digest carried an article
by science journalist, Boyce Rensberger ("Ancestors: A Family
Album"), wherein he stated:
"Except for those who believe in
miracles of special creation (events that, by definition, can
neither be proved nor disproved), no one doubts that our heritage
can be traced back nearly four million years to little creatures
that, as adults, stood only about as tall as a five-year-old today."
are as dubious as those of Creationists
Rensberger's statement that "no one doubts" is extraordinary. (I
would like to mention that 'the Big Bang' is definitely one of those
'miracles of special creation' that can neither be proved nor
The fact is that even among leading paleontologists,
there are many, many doubts about the human lineage. Certainly Rensberger, as a science journalist, knew that. Certainly many
educated laypersons knew it.
And then Fix asks the question:
employ such language? It seems almost calculated to discredit the
Fix recounts a veritable flood of published material from the '70s
and '80s that seemed to be more of a promotion than an even-handed
assessment of paleoanthropology.
Late 1980 - the same time as the
media promotion of SRA and alien abduction - was also the time of
the publication of
Carl Sagan's Cosmos. The fact is, much of what
Sagan wrote was superficial and glib, but more damning is the fact
that he presented Darwin's ideas as though nothing had been thought
about or reconsidered since then, though most certainly that is not
"The secrets of evolution are death and time - the deaths of
enormous numbers of life-forms that were imperfectly adapted to the
environment; and time for a long succession of small mutations that
were by accident adaptive, time for the slow accumulation of
patterns of favorable mutations."
Sagan emphasized the term "by accident" by italicizing it.
making it clear that accident is the fundamental factor in the
emergence of life forms including, and especially, the very
emergence of life itself in
the vastness of the Cosmos.
"Sagan invokes accidents the way others invoke God. His position
implies that not only man but the entire universe is, in the final
analysis, merely the result of a series of billions of accidents
over billions of years...
Scientifically, this position is no more capable of proof or
disproof than miracles of special creation, and all the laws of
probability are dead against it.
Philosophically, even a child can see there is too much order and
pattern in nature for this to be credible. It used to be said that
God geometrizes. Do accidents geometrize? In Sagan's accidental
cosmos, consciousness becomes an excretion of matter...
After years of reading scientific and quasi-scientific literature,
it was suddenly clearer to me than ever why society has developed
the cultural stereotype of the mad scientist...
Sagan insists on playing the high priest of materialism and does it
badly. If this opinion about accidents is perceived as the reigning
scientific wisdom, it is not surprising that many people have
forsaken the counsels of science entirely... the scientists
themselves are driving them away... with vacuous absurdities.
When Sagan excludes even the possibility that a spiritual dimension
has any place in his cosmos - not even at the unknown mysterious
moment when life began - he makes accidental evolution the
explanation for everything.
Presented in this way, evolution does, indeed, look like an
religion, a conceptual golden calf."
(William Fix, The Bone
Peddlers, Macmillan, 1984.)
If this is seen in the context of what I mentioned above: the media
promotion of SRA and alien abduction, things begin to look very
With the people being worked up about spiritual
matters on one side, and the scientific establishment being set up
on the other side to appear as agents of Hell and Damnation, and the
media behaving like demons with pitchforks jabbing first one side
and then the other, is there any wonder that the average person in
the U.S. has fled in terror back to the 'faith of our fathers'?!
short, the exchange between Reagan and the AAAS was just the tip of
the iceberg of much more serious problems in science where some
force within it is working to discredit it rather than enhance it.
William Fix writes:
"Scientists almost invariably overstate the case for evolution, and
creationists have as much access to the critical literature as
anyone else. But when it comes to defending their own theory,
creationists do not have a strong case in terms of biblical
scholarship or for a recent creation of the earth.
And yet the
creationists are stronger in the 1980s than they have been in many
decades, and their influence appears to be still on the increase."
(Fix, op. cit.)
Back in 1984 when this book, The Bone Peddlers, was published, Fix
was noticing the upsurge of a phenomenon that has become a
frightening reality in our own day - witness
George Bush and his use
of fundamentalists to justify his pre-emptive war policy, not to
mention his shredding of the Constitution and institution of what
amounts to martial law in the U.S. Sarah Palin and her Dominionist
background is another frightening feature of this upsurge and it
would not surprise me a bit if she were elected as President and
became the modern equivalent of Adolf Hitler in spike heels.
continues to pursue the problem and actually identifies the root of
"The most peculiar aspect of the debate is that the creationists are
sustained by events completely outside the question of evolution.
The Bible of course does not end with Genesis.
the Old and New Testaments are a number of prophecies indicating
that the nation of Israel would be reborn with Jerusalem as its
capital and that there will eventually be a great, final, and
dramatic last battle between Israel and an alliance of various
nations, including one 'from the uttermost parts of the north,'
(Ezekiel 39:2), a reference many see as pointing to Russia.
As everyone knows, Israel has in fact been reborn. As recently as
1980, the Israelis proclaimed Jerusalem as their eternal,
indivisible capital. And almost every week the political realities
in the Middle East can be seen falling ever more precisely into the
pattern required for consummation of the ancient prophecies that are
yet to be fulfilled.
This obvious and enormous fact hardly ever enters the argument, and
yet the contemporary Middle East situation probably has more to do
with the resurgence of fundamentalism than any other factor."
The issue of evolution itself is not something that we want to get
into here; again, that is a topic for another article.
Let me just
quote another bit from William Fix, who writes:
"When Kelly Segraves claimed in the California court that evolution
was a secular religion, there was more to the charge than courtroom
rhetoric. Indeed, he may have touched upon the central issue of the
In a detached, wider perspective it is almost impossible not
to conclude that what we are witnessing is a conflict between
competing systems of religious belief."
The 'big bang' theory is just another version of creationism - a
'primal atom' came from 'nowhere'.
That is the evolutionists
And that is the crux of the matter:
a totally materialist view of
reality versus one that includes consciousness as something that can
The creationists have been deliberately provoked
into reacting against the totally materialist view by the
Jewish-controlled media, retreating into their
the Zionist agenda perfectly.
What is troubling is the way the materialist evolutionists have been
provoked into their untenable stance which manifests equal
determination to hold the line against any single acknowledgment of
any process that is not totally random, accidental, and material.
Their story is that the Big Bang was the explosion of a primal atom
and all matter in the Universe was in this incredibly dense atom.
Everything that has happened since is just the result of random
jostling of particles that, over billions of years, may form
affinities by accident, and different forms of matter arise.
Eventually, some of this matter jostles against some other bit of
matter, some sort of electrical (or other) interaction takes place,
and that is 'life'.
The Big Bang theory is Creationism. Materialists believe that matter
sprang suddenly into existence with nothing prior. That primal atom
was there, and they make no attempt to explain it.
That's as crazy
as saying 'God was just there' and decided to create the universe.
"Creationists believe that the mind sprang
suddenly into existence fully formed. In their view it is a product
of divine creation. They are wrong: the mind has a long evolutionary
history and can be explained without recourse to supernatural
(Steven Mithen, The Prehistory of the Mind, Thames &
As you can see, Mithen is arguing from as false a premise as
He has already made a big leap of assumption that
when anyone speaks about 'mind' that they are speaking exclusively
about a mind that is tied to a physical body.
The fact is, it is not that examples of natural selection cannot be
found or observed, or that evolution has not been shown to have
robust explanatory powers in some contexts; it is that an equal - or
greater - number of contradictory instances can also be cited. A
close study of the matter indicates that the scientists at the
forefront of research have actually gutted classical Darwinism, they

same time, the public is not able to distinguish between experts and popularizers and naively assume that sensational articles on the
topic are based on demonstrated fact. More than one responsible
scientist has voiced concern that the real facts about Darwinism and
evolution are simply not reaching the public.
Darwinism or neo-Darwinism insist that there are clear
distinctions between science and religion. Indeed, there are obvious
differences in the style and content of a laboratory experiment and
a claim to divinely revealed knowledge.
But if you look just a bit
deeper and ask what is the belief structure of the man conducting
the experiments, you may find, particularly in the U.S. (which is a
problematical observation in itself), that the experimenter
subscribes to the variety of evolutionary theory that is based upon
an exclusively materialistic or mechanical hypothesis.

science is concerned with knowledge of the proven and visible, while
religion is concerned with mindless faith in the improvable and
It goes without saying that a geologist identifying a stratum of
fossils is on firmer ground than a theologian discussing the Trinity
but here's the rub: it is of greater relevance to take natural
selection as Huxley, Sagan, Gould, and others, employ it and ask:
natural selection really a proven fact based on demonstrated
knowledge or is it an unproven hypothesis to which there are so many
contraindications that belief in it is also, in the final analysis,
only a matter of faith?
Natural selection is no more visible than a
Evolutionists are often found taunting creationists that their
miracles of special creation can, by definition, be neither proved
nor disproved. Yet the evolutionists arrive at similar propositions,
especially when they exclude any possibility of something that
guides and propels evolutionary processes.
Karl Popper remarked of
such theories in
Conjectures and Refutations (1963) that,
which is not refutable by any conceivable event is non-scientific."
The main difference between the believers in miracles of special
creation and believers in accidental variations is that the former
has God pulling the strings and the latter has only jostling atoms
and molecules as its ultimate reality.
Not much difference, eh?
Modern science is in denial
about the problems with the theory of
It seems evident that evolution does function as a secular religion
for many people.
When they use the phrase 'no one doubts', they are
implying that some ultimate revelation has been received that can
only be understood by their high priests and devotees.
Alfred Russell Wallace, the co-founder of the theory of evolution,
eventually came to the conclusion that natural selection could not
account for man himself.
He wrote that,
"nature never over-endows a
species beyond the demands of everyday existence."
This means that
there is a major problem in accounting for many aspects of human
beings - at least for some human beings.
Stephen Jay Gould writes:
"The only honest alternative is to admit the strict continuity in
kind between ourselves and chimpanzees. And what do we lose thereby?
Only an antiquated concept of soul..."
Here Gould is expressing the core of evolutionary materialism,
postulate that matter is the stuff of all existence and that all
mental and spiritual phenomena are its by-products."
This is the
pivot of the debate.
What is more, as Zinoviev notes, this reduction
of all mental and spiritual phenomena to 'by-products' of matter is
no longer limited to biology and anthropology; it infects most of
modern philosophy, the psychological and medical sciences, social
systems, politics, and more. And this belief in evolution works to
limit research in such a way as to confirm their basic 'postulate'.
G.G. Simpson of Harvard was one of the most thorough and extensive
writers on evolution.
As he put it in
Tempo and Mode in Evolution (1944):
"... the progress of knowledge rigidly requires that no non-physical
postulate ever be admitted in connection with the study of physical
phenomena....the researcher who is seeking explanations must seek
physical explanations only..."
The late Weston La Barre, professor of anthropology at Duke
University, was consumed with ideological fervor against the 'enemy'
and wrote that all religions other than evolution are maladaptive
retreats from reality.
When considering the Platonic philosophy
which holds that ideas, forms, patterns, types and archetypes have
an existence and reality of their own and would, therefore, seem to
have an obvious relevance to evolutions and the origins of species,
he regularly compared Plato to Adolf Hitler. He neglected to mention
- as such true believers do on both sides of the argument - that
Hitler was a confirmed - even extreme - Darwinist, believing that
man evolved from monkeys, a proposition that Plato would have
The writings of many great researchers, including Carl Jung and
physicists and mathematicians, suggest that Plato was correct and
that there are immaterial realities such as souls, archetypes,
consciousness independent of physical brains, and more.
for this is actually more considerable than the rags and tatters of
evidence that are glued together to attempt to validate
macroevolution. And, of course, this means that the advocates of
materialistic Darwinism are the ones who are laboring under one of
history's greatest delusions.
Quantum physics indicates that not only does 'matter' seem to
dissolve into patterned vibrations at the most fundamental levels,
it has become apparent that there is a structuring role played by
consciousness. There is now much accumulated evidence that mind does
exist separate from the physical brain and that the phenomena such
as telepathy are not only demonstrable, but they conform to models
of the Universe with non-local causes.
In other words, the world has changed under the materialist
evolutionist's feet and there is much more to our reality than the
naive realism upon which neo-Darwinism is based.
The fact that most
contemporary evolutionists still cling to the old-fashioned, crude
and mechanical theories in spite of the well-known developments in
other scientific fields is more proof of the religious character of
And here we come to an interesting idea:
the difficulty for both
believers in purely mechanistic evolution and the creationists is
that any cosmology that is sufficiently explanatory of the phenomena
we observe in our universe, has deeper dynamics and implications.
The evolutionists and creationists both do not seem to be capable of
the truly abstract, subtle thinking required to parse these
It is as though both types are confined within a set
of cognitive restrictions that drive their perceptions, experiences
and priorities. When we collect the data on these types of
individuals - and they are found in all classes and professions - we
find a certain common factor that has been identified as the
'authoritarian personality type'.
This type of individual is
characterized by three attitudinal and behavioral clusters which are
Authoritarian submission - a high degree of submissiveness to the
authorities who are perceived to be established and legitimate in
the society in which one lives or the peer group with whom one is
involved or works. Naturally, if many of one's peers are personality
disordered - and there is a high probability of that being the case
in any field where authority over others is to be had - then one is
inculcated into submissiveness to psychopathological ideation.
Authoritarian aggression - a general aggressiveness directed
against other people that are perceived to be targets according to
the established authorities as defined in number 1.
Conventionalism - a high degree of adherence to the traditions
and social norms that are perceived to be endorsed by society - or
one's peer group - and its established authorities, and a belief
that others in one's society should also be required to adhere to
these norms. Once again, if the traditions and social norms are
established by authorities with control agendas, everything is
corrupted from the top down.
The Golden Age
as depicted by Pietro da Cartona
According to psychologist, Robert Altemeyer,
"authoritarians tend to
exhibit cognitive errors and symptoms of faulty reasoning.
Specifically, they are more likely to make incorrect inferences from
evidence and to hold contradictory ideas that result from
They are also more likely to
uncritically accept insufficient evidence that supports their
beliefs, and they are less likely to acknowledge their own
(Robert Altemeyer, Right-Wing Authoritarianism,
University of Manitoba Press, 1981.)
As we can see, this description applies equally to both sides of the
'debate', each rigidly submitting to their own chosen 'authorities',
over-identifying with their own peer groups, rejecting conflicting
evidence and attacking those who bring such evidence forward!
the authoritarian personality in mind, please, as we proceed.
Remember that it is not necessarily identified by what is believed,
but by how it is believed and promoted.
It's time to shift gears, but before we do, let me make my own
position clear. I do not believe in 'god'. I do not believe that a
god created this cosmos. I do believe, however, that pure, infinite
potential known as Consciousness is the foundation of all that
I believe that we are 1) quantum; 2) chemical; 3) biological
beings - in that order - and the quantum part of us is not material.
My views broadly reject the premises on which both Darwinism and
Creationism are based. However, I do embrace many of the ideas of
evolution because they are empirically evident, but the basic theory
of evolution as formulated by Darwin has been repeatedly shown to be
impossible. I reject the theory of the Big Bang which is, in the
final analysis, just pure Creationism under another name, another
Both Creationism and the Big Bang theory posit that
the Universe is created, linear and finite.
An eternal, infinite,
Conscious Universe does not require a creator - it is what it is.
Finally, I don't claim that this is the Truth, it is just where I am
now after 45 years of research. There is certainly much more that
needs to be discovered and understood.
Now, let's return to our
One of the problems with the view I presented in the Witches article
was that I was working strictly off of mainstream archaeological and
geological evidence. It's a useful view, of course, but I think we
can figure out by now that it is not the whole picture. That is why
I didn't want to engage the topic of whether or not a prior high
civilization existed at the time of the Great Deluge.
mainstream science denies that this is possible because, mainly, the
theory of evolution tells us that earlier means primitive.
mentioned, I don't want to go off on an analysis of the theory of
evolution here either, I'll just recommend a couple of very good
scientific books on the topic: Fix's The Bone Peddlers and
Shattering the Myth of Darwinism by Richard Milton. The
bibliographies in these two books will take you to other excellent
scientific works by mainstream scientists that will reveal the fact
that there are still a few real scientists not under the political
control of the AAAS and other corrupt pseudo-scientific

sociological process that deserves some attention.

of society does that sort of thing and what are the processes by
which it happens?
Is there a way to reconcile the material brought
forward by the revisionists with the facts presented out of context
by the mainstream falsifiers as described by Zinoviev above?
most important of all: Is there a relationship between what is
happening in our world today and what may have happened in a
previous high civilization that fell?
Are we replaying 'Atlantis'?
The myth of a lost paradise, or Golden Age, is almost universal
around the globe.
The Golden Age was supposed to be a time when
humanity was pure and good, and evil was unable to achieve
dominance. The most well-known treatment of the theme is found in
Greek mythology. The Greeks explained that life and civilizations
run in grand cycles, rather like the seasons of the year. There was
the Golden Age which, after a time, began to decline and gave way to
the Silver Age, which declined to the Bronze Age, which declined
into the Iron Age which, eventually, became Darkness.
This is echoed in the Hindu or Vedic culture, with its model of
We are said to
be living in the final days of the Iron/Dark Age, the Kali Yuga, at
the end of which Brahma will awake from his dream and the whole
cycle will begin again.
The length of these ages varies from one system to another and have
been interpreted and re-interpreted - much like biblical texts - to
support various theories at various times.
The theme is represented as the Garden of Eden in the
Judeo-Christian tradition, and that is where we find a most
interesting twist: women are supposed to be the cause of the fall.
Indeed, most of the world's creation myths speak about some sort of
ritual fault that occurred to bring about humankind's Fall from
Grace and many of these myths attribute this fault to something
having to do with sex.
In addition to the Fall from the Edenic state, there is also the
Flood of Noah and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which is
blamed on sexual excess. In the Sumerian myths, it is said that
humans copulating all over the place kept the gods awake and they
could get no rest, so they resolved to destroy the whole kit and
Many authors of revisionist history write about
Atlantis as though
it were the Golden Age.
However, there is a problem with positing
the civilization of Atlantis as the exemplar of the Golden Age
because, in Plato's exposition on Atlantis, he emphasizes the fact
that it was an evil empire that instituted a World War (though no
mention is made specifically of sexual excess or the depravity that
had taken over Sodom and Gomorrah).
But in my previous article, I
suggested that there was a way of life prior to the Deluge that was
rich, fulfilling, and stable - without warfare - for many thousands
of years. So, if that was the case, why the Deluge?
My thought is that Atlantis was the end-point of a cycle and the
Upper Paleolithic - before the great technological civilization of
Atlantis came into being - was the Golden Age. Fully actualized
Atlantis was the 'Iron Age/Dark Age' of that cycle and it was in the
process of trying to institute a New World Order when the
If I am correct, then we may come to some
approximation of the length of the cycle as well as some idea as to
where we are on that cycle, and thus, of our future.
The solution to sorting all this out is, I think, the solution to
the problem of reconciling mainstream archaeology with revisionist
Remember what Zinoviev wrote about the mainstream
"...their forte is the ability to misrepresent
historical events while giving correct temporal and spatial
coordinates and representing individual facts veraciously and in
full detail. The actual falsification is achieved via the selection
of facts, their combination and interpretation, as well as the
context of ideological conceptions, propagandist texts that they are
From this we may assume that the facts and locations given by
mainstream paleontologists, archaeologists and geologists are
accurate as far as they go:
it is the selection - they leave out a
lot! - and the way they combine and interpret them and place them in
an ideological framework (evolution), that is the mode of deception.
Having something to work with, in the course of sorting all this
out, we may also come to some idea of how it is that our
civilization is so completely dominated by liars.
There is clearly a substantial body of evidence that a sort of
'superman' human being known as
Cro-Magnon appeared suddenly in
Europe and he was something that had never been seen before in the
previous 200 thousand years (or more) of the existence of
Neanderthal man. The evidence shows that this new man was the
creator of cave paintings and other art that is astonishing in view
of the alleged primitiveness of his lifestyle.
between the so-called primitive life-style and the paintings is
pretty solid as far as I can see, time-wise.
However, as noted, this
was many thousands of years before the Deluge, so there was plenty
of time for an advanced civilization to develop after this, and it
is in the development of this technological civilization that I
believe we find the 'ritual fault' that brought about its demise -
and it may definitely be related to 'sex', though not in an ordinary
The revisionist researchers have certainly assembled plenty of
evidence for an ancient, high civilization.
This evidence is totally
ignored by mainstream science. They explain it away in the most
ridiculous ways, and if they can't do that, they engage in ad
hominem attacks. Most of this evidence for great cities appears to
date well after the appearance of Cro-Magnon and his obviously
'primitive' lifestyle - though that assessment of his lifestyle as
'primitive' may not be correct.
When we consider planetary cataclysm
and its ability to scrub the surface of the earth clean, we have to
understand that there's not going to be a lot of evidence to
examine. That there exists any at all is a miracle!
We have to work
with what we have, but let me say that the revisionists have more
solid evidence on their side than the evolutionist mainstream
pseudo-scientists even if the latter claim the degrees and the
methodology (which is admittedly good!) and all the grant money.
I've given the whole 'cycle of ages' thing a lot of thought after
reading everything I could on the topic and here's what occurs to
me, though it is only a first approximation and is going to need
some further work:
There are many cycles within cycles that are
experienced by life on this planet, by the planet, the solar system,
the galaxy, and even the Universe.
The longest cycle that could
relate to the earth as part of the Solar system is its orbit around
the galaxy which takes about 225 million years. I would call that an
'Aeon'. That is 9000 25,000 year precessional cycles.
One third of
9000 precessional cycles is 7.5 million years.
There are a number of ways to decompose these numbers and the most
satisfying is to reduce the Aeon period to 750 periods of 300,000
Let's call these 300,000 year periods 'Epochs'. Next,
300,000 can be divided into 4 'seasons', or periods of 75,000 years
each, which we can call 'Great Eras'. The same period is further
divided into 12 periods of 25,000 years each which is approximately
a precessional cycle or 'Great Year'. A precessional cycle can be
divided by four (the four Yugas/Ages giving a period of 6,250 years
for each Yuga). See first graphic.
The precessional cycle can also be divided by 12 giving a period of
2,083.3333 years. These latter we refer to as astrological signs, or
'Earth Ages'. Three signs belong to a Yuga/Age.
You can take any of the segments referenced and depict it as its own
'great cycle' and further divide it down into smaller and smaller
units. I have done this with the second graphic. In the first
graphic, you do not see the Aeon because that is simply too long a
cycle to be concerned with. The largest one represented is one of
But in the second graphic, I have reduced the time
periods so that each Astrological sign period of 2083.333 years is
divided into four Earth Eras of 520.8333 years. I thought I would
play with it a bit and make 2013 the end of the current Iron/Dark
Age/Earth Era and began subtracting these Earth Era periods and, as
you can see, the numbers turned out to be very interesting.
The first subtraction gives us 1492 which is when Columbus
'discovered' America. The second date, 971, is the year the Mosque
Azhar was built in Cairo, Egypt (970-972). It is believed that the
Norse explorer, Leif Eriksson, was born in this year. What we do
know is that, at the beginning of the 9th century, Celtic Britain
lay in ruins. This suggests that there had been destruction of some
sort prior to this time.
Nennius compiled a history of his people
which makes fascinating reading about this time, though it is often
rejected as pure confabulation by 'experts'.
Perhaps it wasn't?
The next date that comes up at a transition point is 450ad. This
was the time of Attila the Hun and the fall of the Roman Empire. The
date 1633 BC is the approximate time of the eruption of Thera and,
in my opinion, the time of Abraham and Sarai in Egypt, known there
by the names Ay and Nefertiti.
The point is that, even if it is only a first approximation, this
appears to be a very interesting way to look at the cycles of time
and you can be sure that it will be the topic of a future article
exploring it more thoroughly.
In the meantime, I think that many
readers may enjoy playing with this and seeing what happens if the
cycle is further decomposed and analyzed.
Getting back to our topic, there is a great deal of uncertainty
about the dates of various types of early humans. What I want to say
is that the Golden Age of legend was a Great Golden Era as depicted
in the first graphic and that more than one civilization has arisen
and fallen in the 300,000 years since the present Epoch began.
the Great Deluge, the alleged destruction of Atlantis,
estimated to be 12 to 13 thousand years ago was just the ending of
an age within an age within an age?
Perhaps entire sub-cycles of ages as described in the theory of the
Yugas played out between the time of the first appearance of
Cro-Magnon in Europe and the end of the Pleistocene around 12,000
years ago? I don't think that we can consider the life of humanity
either before or immediately after the Deluge to have been a Golden
Age by any stretch of the imagination.
But then, if we consider the
Upper Paleolithic as a sort of Golden Age (and we will see that we
have some reason to do so), and our current age, the Iron Age,
moving toward Darkness and Destruction, then where does the Deluge
fit into all of this? Well, half of a precessional cycle is 12,500
years and many experts working on this issue of cometary impacts and
the Deluge say that this is when it occurred: 12,500 years ago,
often abbreviated to 13kya.
Why is this larger cycle I am proposing
important? Let's consider the very big picture.
In their book,
The Sixth Extinction, Richard Leakey and Roger Lewin
(Doubleday, 1995), describe the present as a time in which we are
moving toward the extinction of at least 50% of all life on Earth,
possibly including humanity. They suggest that most of the
extinction is occurring due to human overpopulation and
overexploitation of the planetary resources.
But there is more to
this than what can be blamed on humanity as the research on cometary
impacts clearly reveals. Our current extinction is, apparently, just
part of a very large cycle.
Richard Firestone et al. write in
Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes:
"When people use the term extinction, they mean that many living
species vanished. This is just part of the equation, however.
Another side is that some species survived. In all past major
extinctions, with ecosystems out of balance, many of the surviving
species experienced explosive growth. This is what happened 13,000
years ago, when an unusual mix of conditions created favorable
conditions for the human species.
First, there were new genes. Spurred by genetic mutations that
produced a burst of creativity and technological resourcefulness,
humans became even more efficient predators. The Event killed off
many competing predators, and skilled hunters decimated many
surviving ones, ensuring that more people survived. The same
resourcefulness made humans better at finding food in every way, and
consequently human populations expanded rapidly.
Second, a benign climate, due partly to the green house effect of
the impacts, fostered larger human populations. The warmer climate,
coupled with humans' newfound resourcefulness, fostered the
invention of agriculture, freeing humans from a nomadic lifestyle.
The development of better housing, clothing, and weapons all allowed
human populations to increase.
Third, increasing populations led more people to live together in
villages and towns, where the division of labor allowed a larger
pool of skilled talent to develop. This fueled an almost constant
technological boom in many fields, producing, among other things,
pottery making, metalworking, and writing.
All that may seem positive, except that the burgeoning population,
initially fostered by the extinction Event, contained the seeds of
many of our current troubles.
When overpopulation occurs in any
species - whether it is rabbits, locusts, lemmings, or people - a
host of problems comes along with it, including epidemics,
starvation, extreme aggression, ecosystem destruction, and scarce
resources, every one of which is a major pressing problem in our
An extinction sequence comprises the following stages:
A major catastrophe leads to the disappearance of some species.
These disappearances lead to the overpopulation of some surviving
Overpopulation leads to devastating depopulation.
This equation has held true for every past extinction event. In the
current sequence, we have passed through the first two stages as a
species but not the last stage, depopulation..."
Allen West, Simon Warwick-Smith, The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes,
Bear & Co., 2006.)
There is more to this than Firestone et al., suppose, I think.
it is important to us to realize that what happened 13,000 years ago
was just the one of many extinction events.
If this unbelievably
violent cataclysm - in which almost all life on Earth was destroyed
- came as a global empire was seeking domination over others, we may
need to ask the question:
Does our living planet, its companions in
the solar system, and its parent sun, manifest some sort of
consciousness and do they, between them, have the resources to deal
with humanity - or any other species - whenever things get 'too
hot', so to say?
Was Atlantis such an example?
Did other destroyed
and buried civilizations whose names were completely forgotten for
hundreds, if not thousands, of years, become victims of their own
hubris in like manner?
Did a comet similar to
bring genetic variation or
mutation to earth?
Getting back to possibility of the existence of an advanced
civilization called Atlantis, this has been argued for a very long
time and many theories have been proposed.
I'm not going to examine
that here, I'm just going to highlight the fact that this is still
an ongoing scholarly discourse. I have here on my desk a paper
written by Emilio Spedicato of the University of Bergamo entitled
Galactic Encounters, Apollo Objects and Atlantis
- A Catastrophical
Scenario for Discontinuities in Human History.
It was first
published in 1985, revised in 1990, and again in 1997.
He writes in
"Recent findings about interactions of the Earth with
extraterrestrial bodies, particularly comets and Apollo-like
objects, are reviewed, with special attention to climatological
effects. We discuss the hypothesis that the last glaciation was
started by a collision over a continent and was terminated by a
collision over an ocean.
We propose that during the glaciation

possible for mankind to develop a high level of civilization. The

description of a political power active in the final period of the

certainly sounds like something happened between the time of the
cave paintings and the Deluge. It could be the same thing that is
happening in our own culture:
a creeping corruption that slowly, but
surely, poisons everything and leads an entire civilization to
So, it may behoove us to have some idea of what this
might have been, how it may have happened.
Our discussion of the
corruption of science above may have a great deal to do with this.
Everyone knows that there is something terribly wrong with our
world, but there are hundreds - if not thousands - of explanations
for why this is the case. Some of them are right or partially right,
some of them are just plain wrong and designed to keep people
ignorant. From my own point of view, ascertaining the truth about
our history - as close as we can get to it - is a very important
task in the process of figuring out what is wrong.
You can't figure
out how to break out of something unless you understand the nature
of it thoroughly - you kind of have to back-engineer things, which
is where studying history and the natural sciences comes in. Plus,
you have to have evidence sufficient to convince others that any
plan you might have is based on fact - primary reality - and won't
make things worse.
A social physician has the responsibility to 'do
no harm' and that means don't treat anything you don't understand.
I have theorized previously that the cometary destruction associated
with the Deluge may have been responsible for mutations in the human
population and these mutations led to a variety of psychopathologies
that have spread gradually in the population, incrementally
corrupting humanity and life on Earth, until we are where we are
That may have been what happened to
Atlantis via an even
earlier cataclysmic interaction, and I'm going to explain why I
What Atlantis ended up with, according to Plato, and what
we have today, was and is a corrupt global system that seeks
domination of the entire world. For Atlantis, in the midst of, or
immediately after, fighting a war of domination, the Deluge came
destroying nearly all life on earth in a single day and night.
Rather sobering if you think about it. Makes one feel like going
"But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day
that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came,
and took them all away..."
So, something corrupted the world of Cro-Magnon man long before this
time and whatever it was, it led peaceful hunter-gatherer types to
create a complex technological civilization that then took the
peoples of the world into an abyss; and this corruption may very
well have survived the Deluge and still be present in our own
It is a system that posits pure materialism as its
foundation, and excludes entirely the potentials of consciousness as
a factor in human dynamics (except as a by-product or 'excretion' of
matter). And when I refer to materialists, I actually include the
creationists because their position is actually as entirely
materialism-based as the evolutionists.
Let's look at a few facts
that may reveal to us clues to the origins of this mode of
Paul Mellars writes in
The Neanderthal Legacy:
"Perhaps the most intriguing and enigmatic aspects of the Middle
Paleolithic period is how and why it came to an end, after a period
of around 200,000 years of remarkable stability.
From the preceding
chapters it has emerged that while there were significant shifts in
the precise morphology and technology of stone tool production,
subsistence patterns, site distributions etc. at different stages of
the Middle Paleolithic, very few if any of these seem to reflect any
radical reorganization or restructuring of technological, economic
or social patterns.
Most of the documented changes appear to be more
cyclical than directional in character... none of these changes at
present suggests more than a reshuffling of basic cultural and
behavioral patterns which, in one form or another, can be traced
back into the time range of the penultimate glaciation...
Cro-Magnon cave art shows a high level of sophistication
The dramatic break in this pattern of
behavioral stability occurs
at the time of the classic Middle-to-Upper Paleolithic transition,
dated in most regions of Europe at around 35 - 40,000 bp."
(Paul Mellars, The Neanderthal Legacy, Princeton University Press, 1996.)
And then he asks the most important question in all of archaeology
What is the precise character of the behavioral
change and to what extent was this due to a major dispersal of new
The corollary question is, of course: why should
we encounter this particular combination of biological and
behavioral change at this specific point in the archaeological
sequence? It was, after all, a time when large parts of Europe were
still in the grip of an Ice Age. (Or, so we are told, though Allan & Delair make a convincing case for a different interpretation of Ice
Ages in their book Cataclysm.)
We note that the Spedicato paper cited above proposes that the last glaciation began with a cometary collision or explosion over land.
Perhaps we find here a clue to the sudden appearance of Cro-Magnon
I have here on my desk a paper by Rhawn Joseph and Chandra Wickramasinghe entitled
Comets and Contagion - Evolution and Diseases
They write in their conclusions:
"Correlation is not causation and thus no firm conclusions can be
drawn despite the wealth of evidence suggesting a link between
comets and diseases from space. Nevertheless, comets are an ideal
vehicle for sustaining and transporting a variety of microbes,
including viruses, from planet to planet and even from solar system
to solar system.
In consequence, when these organisms are deposited
on a world already thriving with life, genes may be exchanged, the
evolution of new species may ensue, or conversely contagion may be
unleashed, and disease, death, and plague may spread throughout the
Let us speculate that the genes that produced Cro-Magnon man may
have been brought to earth as the result of a cometary impact.
simplest version of this
panspermia theory is that proposed by Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe who suggest that life forms
continue to enter the earth's atmosphere, and may be responsible for
epidemic outbreaks, new diseases, and the genetic novelty necessary
The mechanisms proposed for interstellar panspermia may include radiation pressure and lithopanspermia
(microorganisms in rocks), deliberate directed panspermia from space
to seed Earth. Interplanetary transfer of material is well
documented, as evidenced by meteorites of Martian origin found on
There are several other things that tie into this. I would suggest
that the reader might want to have a look at
Planet-X, Comets &
Earth Changes by James M. McCanney and
Cataclysm by D.S. Allan and
McCanney's work is concerned with the Plasma Discharge
Comet Model. I highly recommend this book and wish I had the space
here to adequately summarize his ideas, but I don't.
These ideas are
about electrical charges of comets and how they interact with the
sun and the planets of our solar system. What is important here is
what McCanney remarks about the planet Mars.
"Mars is observed to have had oceans
in the past and these are gone and the atmosphere that held the
water and oceans and rivers in place is also gone. Why would a
planet nearly the size of Earth with vast oceans and a
substantial atmosphere holding it in place all of a sudden have
The reality is that if this had
happened millions of years ago, the vast dust storms that ravage
Mars every year would have erased or eroded the geological features
long ago... In reality, Mars could not have lost its atmosphere more
than a few thousand years ago, and there are historical records that
the ancients saw a large comet pass by Mars and lift off the oceans
and atmosphere in a single night...
The ancients are said to have
witnessed this and described it as a giant snake-like extension
coming out of the huge comet that eventually became the planet
If a large comet nucleus comes near enough to a planet to interact
electrically, that is, the comet establishes an electrical
connection with the planet, then what is called the 'surface
gravity' of the object is allowed to take over.
If this happens the
object with the larger surface gravity will suck at the volatiles
(air, water, etc.) and if this process is allowed to work long
enough, the object with the larger surface gravity will remove most
of all of the atmosphere and oceans of the smaller object. One
object is stripped of its cloak and the other receives a significant
pollution event. It is evident that Mars recently underwent this...
This also proves that the object was at least larger than the planet
Mars - as large as the planet Venus or larger. ...
Earth has in fact been involved in similar events but so far we have
managed to 'win' the tug of war... receiving what amounts to vast
pollution events (the rain of brimstone and burning naptha or
hydrocarbons as well as water flooding).
It is clear from this also
that the world's oil did not come from millions of years of decaying
fern forests (no chemist has ever developed a process to convert
decayed matter into oil).
The oil fell onto the Earth during such a pollution event when the
Earth performed celestial battle with a large cometary intruder. The
great earth-wide flood was also the result of the water in the comet
tail falling onto earth during the same or similar encounters...
Most scientists do not realize that comets can become very large and
that the volume of water, oil, etc. that is produced in the tail of
a very large comet would dwarf the atmosphere of planet Earth. When
the oil in the Mid-East was first used in quantity it was laying in
pools on the ground. When this was used up, they dug into the sand
and now we are drilling into oceans of oil that seeped into the sand
after falling from above during the many comet encounters that Earth
Another aspect of the arrival of new objects from outside the solar
system is that they many times arrive in multiples. This is because
whatever the source of these wandering objects from beyond, they
were formed or fragmented at the same time...
Since comets come in multiples... could it be possible that the
massive comet Hale-Bopp was a precursor or companion...?"
Planet-X, Comets & Earth Changes, 1980-2003.)
Now, even though I would dearly love to quote more of this
fascinating book, we have to move on.
The important thing about McCanney's theory (and you have to read the whole book to fully
appreciate it and understand why the corrupt scientific community
sought to silence him!) is the part about electrically charged
bodies being able to strip a planet and then, when encountering
another larger planet, the second planet can acquire all this
This material may definitely include organic material,
possibly even including atomized body parts of formerly living
creatures containing bacteria, viruses, and more!
This could explain
the sudden appearance of Cro-Magnon man:
a virus carrying a lot of
DNA from a former human host on another planet could have infected a
population of early hominids on Earth and, presto! Instant modern
Of course, where the human types lived that said DNA came from is
another question. Mars? Possible.
This is where the Allan & Delair
This is probably one of the most excellent
compilations of scientific data - sourced and referenced - I've ever
encountered on the topic of our earth's cataclysmic past.
note in their introduction:
"Some readers may recoil at the
abundance of references and might even regard them as irksome or
intrusive. In a work of this genre precise documentation is
Exactly. And for an OCD data and pattern recognition
junkie like me, this book is a delight even if I don't agree
entirely with some of the conclusions.
Allan & Delair bring serious questions to bear on the mainstream
interpretation of our reality and history and do it armed to the
teeth with science.
The case they make for a Golden Age world prior
to the Deluge is compelling and quite unique. Wielding hard data
from literally every field of science, they demonstrate that
hundreds of thousands of years of ice ages may be a myth created to
explain many anomalous findings on earth that uniformitarian science
had no other way to explain.
This data strongly suggests a
completely different planet prior to a worldwide cataclysm that they
say occurred in 9500 BC, but the latest research puts the most
recent major event back at least another thousand years. They refer
to it as the 'Phaeton Disaster'.
They also bring up the issue of the
'Fifth Planet' that is posited to have existed where the asteroid
belt now lies.
They propose that the Phaeton Disaster included the
destruction of this Fifth Planet and the celestial calamity - which
affected the entire solar system - left debris everywhere. Here,
again, they posit that this occurred at the same time as the Deluge
we have related to the destruction of Atlantis, 13,000 years ago,
though they suggest a different date. I think that here there may be
some conflation of a number of separate events.
As noted, Spedicato
proposes an event that initiated an Ice Age and another event that
ended it. Other sources demonstrate compellingly the evidence of
other great dyings on earth, so we don't have to confine ourselves
to just one or two episodes.
I don't have the space to work all that
out here, either!
In any event, Allan & Delair suggest that Phaeton was spawned in an
astronomically-near supernova explosion and that it was a portion of
exploded astral matter that came careening into our solar system,
instigated 'war in heaven', destroying the Fifth Planet, taking its
resources, engaging with the earth and dumping that water and oil
and so forth on our planet while changing its axial orientation,
completely reorganizing the arrangement of land and water
(obviously, if we acquired more water, there was more land prior to
that time and their map showing how it must have looked, based on
scientific finds, is fascinating), then Phaeton plunged into the sun
never to bother anyone again.
While I really like nearly everything
they have proposed in their book (and have supported with
references), I'm not too sure about this idea.
It's possible, of
course, but Victor Clube and Bill Napier have a good idea with their
Giant Comet that cycled around numerous times, and this ties in very
well with what McCanney proposes (echoing Velikovsky): that the
giant comet was Venus.
The giant comet that breaks up into numerous
other large comets and their shenanigans described by Clube & Napier
could then be chunks of the Fifth Planet running amok, and still
there, for the most part, threatening life on Earth. Of course, this
again includes numerous events going back much further than 9,500 BC.
This is where the application of a lot of scientific minds would
come in handy if they were allowed to work openly on such problems.
The important thing about their book is not only the detailed
collecting of data that supports their interpretation of what the
Earth must have been like prior to at least one Deluge, but also
their data (weaker because it is mythological, but still well done)
about the Fifth Planet being involved in this disaster along with
Mars and Venus.
Their description of the antediluvian world is
simply marvelous: a real Golden Age could have existed on such a
Now, just suppose that there were a Fifth Planet, where the asteroid
belt now exists, in our solar system as so many have theorized. And
just suppose this planet did have an advanced technological
civilization of some sort.
Suppose further that they were aware of
the possible imminent destruction of their planet and,
ships to earth carrying a small number of refugees from space or, if
there was too little time or their capacities weren't up to so large
launched engineered viruses toward Earth that
contained their own DNA
The other alternative is something like the
scenario with Mars as described by
perhaps the intruder
sucked off a great deal of material from said Fifth Planet and earth
captured it in a subsequent interaction (along with material from
Mars) and then dumped it on earth.
This could have included a lot of
organic matter, including viruses that had incorporated large
segments of the DNA of the advanced beings on that planet which then
infected a population of earth hominids, causing macroevolution in
just a few generations.
Such viruses as might be carried by space
rocks could also be the explanation of the disappearance of
Neanderthal. Just think 'Black Death'. I think the answers may be
found in some combination of these various factors.
Each of these books contributes a great deal to the solution of the
origins of mankind on earth, I think, as well as dealing with many
of the problems of archaeology, paleontology, geology, and so forth.
But there is more that we need to think about.
We know that the earliest known remains of Cro-Magnon-like humans
are radiometrically dated to 35,000 years ago though there are
important finds indicating that modern human types may have existed
on earth millions of years ago.
Naturally, these finds are
suppressed by the evolutionists (recall their missionary zeal to
spread their religion).
Anyway, I have a problem with the date of
the appearance of Cro-Magnon and here's why: In my book, Secret
History, I cite the research of Richard Firestone and William
Topping which demonstrates that there are a number of events -
including cometary or asteroid impacts, not to mention a host of
less dramatic things, that can - and have! - 'reset' the carbon
dating clock (as well as problems with other forms of dating).
Because we are fairly certain that there have been numerous such
events, we have to assume that things that are radiometrically dated
are probably much older, perhaps by a factor of two.
So, I'm going
to go with that for this hypothesis. (See Secret History for a
detailed discussion of this problem.)
Let's suppose that the planet Venus was the comet in question that
entered the solar system as McCanney proposes, supporting Velikovsky,
though the 'birth of Venus' from Jupiter is rejected. Suppose this
is the same Giant Comet of Clube & Napier only it entered the solar
system much earlier than they suggest.
Then, suppose that this giant
comet did the things that Allan & Delair propose in their scenario
and it did so, say, 70 to 75,000 or even 80,000 years ago.
reason I suggest this date is two-fold:
considering the dating
problem revealed by Firestone and Topping, I think it is safe enough
to think that most dates that paleontologists and archaeologists
work with are off by a factor of two
it fits neatly into the
Epoch I have proposed above. If we are looking at a species
extinction cycle, it must be a very long period and the 'Winter'
season of this 300,000 year cycle consisting of 12 precessional
cycles, began 75,000 years ago.
Oh, certainly, we could be anywhere
along any proposed cycle; this is just the one I am proposing right
now, speculatively, because a few things fit, including the
paleontological findings about Neanderthal.
The average time of his
full manifestation probably falls right around 300,000 years ago,
taking dating issues into account. (By 130,000 years ago, complete
Neanderthal characteristics had appeared according to the
evolutionists who we realize we cannot trust.)
There may or may not have been an advanced civilization on earth
prior to that time during a previous Epoch. Considering what happens
to the planet during cataclysms (read Allan & Delair for graphic
descriptions) it's not likely that much, if anything, would survive,
so we can't speculate much about that.
Going in another direction, I want to note again that
paleontological finds suggest that modern type humans did exist on
earth at that time - and even earlier - though they were different
from Cro-Magnon man. Anatomically modern human fossils - actually,
they are almost modern - data back as far as 195,000 years. (We may
consider the dating problem here, as well.)
Research 'Omo remains',
'Homo sapiens idaltu', and 'Skhul and Qafzeh hominids'.
that they are all 'almost'.
So, this mad chunk of rock comes into the solar system and becomes a
comet due to its interaction with the solar capacitor according to
McCanney's theory. It has the famed interaction with the Fifth
Planet - Tiamat as recorded in
the Sumerian stories - splitting it
A lot of it is left in smaller chunks and becomes the
asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, another big chunk goes
tearing off on its own as a 'giant comet' that may have disappeared
for awhile, but then was pulled back into smaller and ever smaller
orbits until it broke up in the heavens and bombarded the Earth
13,000 years ago.
The same chunk gave birth to other comets and
meteor streams as described by Clube & Napier, in earth-crossing
orbits, and we have a date with some of the larger chunks in the
That is, unless there is another player,
which we will come to shortly.
Was the planet Venus originally a comet?
Now, 'panspermia', as the
DNA-transported-by-comets-seeding-life-on-earth theory is called,
may get us off the hook as far as human evolution on earth is
concerned, but it does not get us off the hook when considering
where that DNA came from originally and how the individuals who
carried it evolved, if the arguments against evolution that the
panspermia scientists employ apply everywhere.
Obviously, they are
under the same constraints.
On the other hand, that may be a way out
in a different direction:
DNA could be a pure manifestation of
consciousness, a sort of first-level physicality, the interface
between the material and non-material worlds.
Pure information might
be able to geometrize itself in the form of DNA and, voilà! the
building blocks of life that are complex and capable of inducting
consciousness itself into matter come into being in an instant. Sort
of a mini-Big Bang with consciousness present to guide the
Astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle wrote in a little book
The Origin of the Universe and The Origin of Religion:
"More than a century ago Alfred Russel Wallace noticed that the
higher qualities of Man are acausal, like the Universe itself. Where
human qualities have been honed by evolution and natural selection
there is very little difference between one individual and another.
Given equivalent opportunities for training, healthy human males of
age 20 will hardly differ in their abilities to run at pace by more
than 10 percent between the Olympic runner and the average. But for
the higher qualities it is very much otherwise. From enquiries among
teachers of art, Wallace estimated that for every child who draws
instinctively and correctly there are a hundred that don't.
proportions are much the same in music and mathematics. And for
those who are outstanding in these fields the proportions are more
like one in a million. Having made this point Wallace then made the
striking argument that, while the abilities with small spread, like
running, would have been important to the survival of primitive man,
the higher qualities had no survival value at all.
Over a span of 12
years spent in the Amazon and in the forests of the East Indies,
Wallace... lived with primitive tribesmen... What he said was that
in his experience he never saw a situation in which an aptitude for
mathematics would have been of help to primitive tribes. So little
numerate were they that, in 12 years, he saw only a few who could
count as far as 10.
His conclusion was that the higher qualities,
the qualities with large variability from individual to individual,
had not been derived from natural selection. Abilities derived from
natural selection have small spread. Abilities not derived from
natural selection have wide spreads.
Wallace was writing only a decade after Maxwell's work on
electromagnetic fields, which even in physics were still seen as
mysterious. It therefore seemed reasonable to speculate that perhaps
there was some universal field which acted on matter so as to
produce intelligence once evolution had advanced to a suitable
This is an idea which still resurfaces from time to time.
today it comes so close to offending areas of certain knowledge that
for me, at any rate, it has no plausibility. I think the higher
qualities must be of genetic origin, the same as the rest. The
mystery is that we have to be endowed with the relevant genes in
advance of them being useful. The time order of events is inverted
from what we would normally expect it to be, a concept that is of
course gall and wormwood to respectable opinion...
In recent years I
have managed to earn the dislike of respectable societies by saying
that natural history was nearer to the truth in the first half of
the 19th century than in the second half."
In any event, we know that Cro-Magnon shows up in the archaeological
record rather suddenly.
We can't derive anything from that about how
he may have arrived - bodily or as an infection, so to say. What we
do know is that this was the most stunning event in human history.
I'm not even going to quote the numerous experts who write about
this event because everything they write reveals their helplessness
to explain it.
Many of them have the grace to admit it.
In any event, getting back to the Golden Age, after Cro-Magnon man
arrived in Europe, the region apparently achieved a sort of nirvana

of life what happened to change it?
If they went on to develop a
technological civilization (or some of them did) and were
responsible for the many incredible ruins of cities found all over
the globe, what drove them to do that?
And did only some of them do
it in only some places?
Were these the Neanderthal-human hybrids mythecized as Cain, Tubal-Cain, etc.?
And then, if they developed

remains - tell us, what led them to warfare, to attempts to
dominate the planet?

The appearance of Cro-Magnon man brought various technological and
behavioral innovations, an explosion of symbolic artifacts, varied
and sophisticated representational art, and more.
All of these
changes are associated clearly and unequivocally with this first
appearance of fully modern human beings. The 'culture' of the
Cro-Magnon peoples is called 'Aurignacian'. There was a striking
uniformity of this Aurignacian technology over a vast area of Europe
and the Middle East that appeared without any convincing origins or

Paul Mellars' book The Neanderthal Legacy does so well. You will be
left in no doubt whatsoever that Neanderthals are not our ancestors
though, indeed, there may have been some extremely limited genetic
mixing as some recent DNA studies show.
These studies suggest that
this mixing was as long ago as 400,000 years and does not seem to
have occurred in Africa, but rather in nearly all other areas of the
planet except Africa!
So, that's a problem to be dealt with.
A facial reconstruction of Cro-Magnon man
A careful consideration of the characteristics of Neanderthals -
what little can be discerned, but mainly their lack of creativity
over 200,000 years or more of existence - along with the very small
percentage of DNA mixing, may actually give us clues as to what may
have happened that modern science is trying so hard to cover up with
their evolutionary theories: genetic human pathologies including
those that infect the very individuals who have taken over control
of our civilization and corrupted it with their mechanical,
materialistic world view.
It may very well be that certain personality pathologies among
modern humans, such as the authoritarian personality and psychopathy,
are due to the presence of some Neanderthal DNA that has recombined
in particular ways.
Here is why I suggest this:
if you study all the
available material on Neanderthals, you come to the idea that their
basic natures - in the emotional/spiritual sense - are that of the
The following quotes from Robert Hare's book,
Conscience, should make the comparison clear:
"Psychopaths are social predators who charm, manipulate, and
ruthlessly plow their way through life, leaving a broad trail of
broken hearts, shattered expectations, and empty wallets.
lacking in conscience and in feelings for others, the selfishly take
what they want and do as they please, violating social norms and
expectations without the slightest sense of guilt or regret.
bewildered victims desperately ask,
'Who are these people?' 'What
makes them they way they are?' 'How can we protect ourselves?'...
Psychopaths have what it takes to defraud and bilk others: They are
fast-talking, charming, self-assured, at ease in social situations,
cool under pressure, unfazed by the possibility of being found out,
and totally ruthless...
Psychopaths are generally well satisfied with themselves and with
their inner landscape, bleak as it may seem to outside observers.
They see nothing wrong with themselves, experience little personal
distress, and find their behavior rational, rewarding, and
satisfying; they never look back with regret or forward with
concern. They perceive themselves as superior beings in a hostile,
dog-eat-dog world in which others are competitors for power and
Psychopaths feel it is legitimate to manipulate and
deceive others in order to obtain their "rights," and their social
interactions are planned to outmaneuver the malevolence they see in

bonding, pro-social responses), concepts, feelings, and values
strike essential psychopaths as incomprehensible and with no obvious

They are incapable of treating other
humans as thinking, feeling beings.
So, combine a powerful animalistic instinctive nature with the
spiritual, creative, active, dynamic, adventurous brain of the
Cro-Magon and what do you have?
One has only to imagine the mixture
of the non-creative, almost parasitic Neanderthal personality with
the dynamic, creative, Cro-Magnon to get an image of the aggressive,
dominating authoritarian personality that is devoid of creativity,
has no ability to conceive of time and space, and functions totally
opportunistically - a hungry predator, though his hunger has new
modes of expression and fulfillment, even if it can always be boiled
down to flesh - to eat or mate with or both: pure materialism.
Perhaps that is the real 'Neanderthal Legacy'?
That is not to say that there is a single authoritarian or
If you read Barbara Oakley's book
Evil Genes, you
realize that there are different systems involved in what we term
Cluster-B personality disorders, including psychopathy. And each of
these systems is controlled by different sets of genes. That would
only be natural if we are talking about an event of mixing that took
place a very, very long time ago.
A neuropsych specialist of my
acquaintance has proposed the following:
"The population of each band of Neanderthals was probably very small
and was focused on survival in a rough environment. So I should
qualify and say Neanderthals were psychopath-like, since the
behavioral traits described certainly sound like it.
lacking in Neanderthals however, the intelligence and adaptability
to manipulate in large groups. I imagine that any significant
population comprised only of essential psychopaths would be
evolutionarily unstable. Maybe that is why they died out? They were
too psychopath-like but lacked adaptable traits.
The survival of Neanderthal genes including those that make one
prone to violence, aggression and lack of empathy would then require
an infusion of genes from a more evolutionary stable population -
one with traits of higher intelligence and adaptability in its
This is what would seem more conducive to essential psychopathy as we understand it, hence it begins with mixing. Before
that it was just a seed comprising aggression and lack of empathy
but that is not all that makes an essential psychopath. The
intelligence to do something with those traits i.e., the ability to
manipulate in various social situations is more like it.
According to Richard Bloom in
Evolutionary Psychology of Violence -
a book that I do not necessarily agree with in toto - even without
an individual's motivation to spread their genes in the short term,
groups do so in the long term. It would be even more imperative for
small bands of aggressive types dealing with environmental
disruption and population decline to rape females from a more stable
and increasing population. It's probably why rape is more rampant
during invasions and general upheaval.
There is numerous
documentation of primitive societies that raided for women. In
essence, invaders would be more motivated to rape females precisely
because of the increased probability that they may not survive the
Their genes are more likely to do so in offspring created by
That is to say, it was the mixing that created a problem amongst the
Cro-Magnon population. It was a hybrid, not necessarily a mutation.
Though, certainly, there can also be mutations across the spectrum
of types due to epigenetic factors, not to mention other
mutation-causing events, including cosmic factors. Some of the
research suggests that this mixing took place in the Middle East
between Neanderthal and the more gracile type of modern human.
there it could have spread to the more northern Cro-Magnon
This, of course, suggests that the pure Cro-Magnon type
may actually have come from the Fifth Planet physically rather than
being the product of a rapid mutation event. There are so many
factors to research it is really a shame that the evolutionists
control science and prevent us from openly seeking solutions to the
problems of our world.
I read an interesting paper recently, 'Neanderthal Settlement
patterns in Crimea - A landscape approach' (Ariane Burke, Journal of

I think one of the most useful books to read in order to really get
a handle on how they may have used their minds is Mithen's
Prehistory of the Mind.
It is a fascinating book even if it is
written by an evolutionist determined to persuade the reader to his
view. But, what he does include in the way of cognitive science is
excellent material to think about.
There is a good bit of space
devoted to analyzing the societies of other primates such as chimps
and large apes, in order to compare the workings of their minds with
man and to theorize how human thinking may have developed. He then
goes on to discuss the Neanderthal question and it seems obvious
that the Neanderthal society was rather similar to that of chimps -
sometimes disturbingly so. There may be more to the belief of the
evolutionists that they are descended from apes than is apparent on
For them, it may be literally true, but not necessarily
true for everyone! It all depends on the roll of the DNA dice.
There is a body of evidence attesting to mutations occurring at the
times of cometary events collected in

This evidence is in the form of legends of mutants that began to
appear after impact events. Most of these legends have to do with
alterations in body size (either giants or dwarves) and raging

really referring to periods when there were DNA polluting events,
and this could include events between Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon or
other hominids. Neanderthals were very short, Cro-Magnon man was
very tall, so a hybrid of the two could be either/or, and both
physical appearances could carry the personality of the Neanderthal
with the intelligence and creative drive of the Cro-Magnon. A
cannibal artist; not a pleasant thought.
What also strikes me as curious is the fact that redheaded
individuals are noted to have been the particular objects of
sacrifice in certain South American art.
It is now known from the
genetic mapping that Neanderthals were redheaded and pale skinned.
Were the natives there encountering some of these hybrids and
dispatching them effectively? Or, worse, were some of these hybrids

This is, of course, assuming that much of the
history of the Americas is much older than is presently allowed in
the evolutionary scheme.
Regarding that, Richard Firestone et al.
makes an extremely interesting series of comments in The Cycle of
"Our early ancestors had only
type O blood. Around 40,000 years ago
mutations likely occurred creating blood types A and B. Types A and
B blood are from dominant genes, so they spread through the
population and became more common.
DNA evidence suggests that B type blood probably originated in
Central Asia or Africa, where the percentage is uniformly highest.
Because the percentage is still very low in Australia and the
Americas, it seems unlikely that it originated in either of those
Some geneticists conclude that type B is the youngest
blood type, which appeared no earlier than 15,000 years ago and
later than 45,000 years ago, and if so, this distribution seems
inconsistent with early Americans originating in Asia and traveling
across the Bering land bridge. If they had done so, there would be a
lot more type B in the Americas.
For type A blood, the picture is more complicated, with apparent
origins in Europe, Canada, and Australia. Again, there is little
evidence that type A spread from Asia to the Americas. Instead,
paradoxically, it appears to have arrived in the Americas from
Europe long before Columbus did.
Is it possible that the Indians came from Europe? That idea seems
far-fetched according to traditional views, and yet, according to
Dennis Stanford, of the Smithsonian and Bruce Bradley, there is
intriguing evidence connecting Clovis flint-knapping technology to
the Solutrean flint technology in Spain at the end of the Ice Age.
In addition, Clovis points are very unlike flint points from Asia,
their supposed land of origin. Since blood types show a connection
with Europe, perhaps there is one rather than Asians, maybe the Solutreans really discovered the New World - or perhaps others did,
because, remarkably, recent studies of early South American skulls
suggest aboriginal or African origins.
Although type O blood is common everywhere, it is nearly universal
among natives of South and Central America, and much more common in
North American than in Asia or Europe. If people populated the
Americas from Asia at the end of the Ice Age after types A and B
arose, those people neglected to bring their normal distribution of
blood types with them.

origin of Native Americans. Called Diego, it evolved recently as a
mutation, and all Africans, Europeans, East Indians, Australian

Native Americans are the only people that are Diego-positive.
Diego-positive is more common among Native Americans than among East
Asians, raising the question of who got these genes first? From
blood types alone, a case can be made that the oldest indigenous
people are the Native Americans!"
(Firestone, et al., op. cit.)
The above might be seen as just confusing the matter, but if you
will read Allan & Delair's book, Cataclysm, it will all clear up!
Back to Neanderthals: it is curious to me to note that they also had
long 'bread-loaf-shaped' heads with a 'bun' at the back. The 'mark
of Cain', perhaps? It makes one wonder about the
Ica skulls from
South America as well as skulls such as those of Nefertiti and her
children and how that may relate to the institution of monotheism.
Periods of environmental stress enabled pathological types to rise
to the top and they used religion to fulfill their bloody fantasies.

One then has to consider such things as cranial deformation and
It is clear when you read studies of this sort of
thing that many of the cases cited in the literature (Nefertiti and
her children, for example) were not artificial deformation, but
natural, and maybe this bizarre, dolichocephalic head with the
extreme upward/backward extension was the Biblical 'Mark of Cain' -
It also strikes me that, since there is an association
between cranial deformation and circumcision, circumcision was also
done in 'imitation' of the 'new elite', these hybrid beings with no
souls. And if so, what was their genital structure? Were Neanderthal
genitals different in some way back then, something that has been
lost in the many generations of genetic recombination since those
ancient times - and circumcision was an attempt to make the normal
male organ look like that of the Neanderthal hybrid?

"When David Levy was born... his mother Sima noticed at once that
he was different from other baby boys. He had been born already

In any event, at some point, the serpent entered Eden probably in
the form of psychopathology from which a group of elites coalesced
and people were pressing their children's heads and whacking their
penises to make them look like the rulers or to 'please the god'.
After studying this topic (and cranial deformation was widespread
and still practiced as recently as 50 years ago in some places
including, believe it or not, Europe), I began to understand how
humans get so twisted and wonder how any normal human being,
subjected to those processes as infants, ever grew up sane at all.
If they weren't personality disordered to begin with, they could
become that way after being tied down with their heads compressed
for the first two years of life plus the genital mutilation factor
(which is a lot worse for women! My god!). (See
Saharasia by James
DeMeo and Artificial Cranial Deformation by Eric J. Dingwell.)
One point that needs to be addressed is the fact that a number of
revisionist history authors have created some really bizarre
fantasies about Neanderthals being gentle flower children decimated
by the evil, technologically superior Cro-Magnon.
These fairy tales
are based on sensationalistic journalism. Let me just say this:
reports of Neanderthal 'humanity' are greatly exaggerated. When you
study the original reports carefully, it is pretty clear that
Neanderthals had no beliefs or rituals and 'taking care of the
elderly and infirm' is possible in one or two very late contexts
probably due to imitation as a result of exposure to Cro-Magnon man.
In contrast to the stable, homogeneous society of Cro-Magnon man,
social anthropologists point out the astonishing diversity of modern
human societies as evidence for the plasticity of the human
psychology. Different societies have different standards, mores,
religious beliefs, customs, rituals, and so much more.
wonder how is this diversity even possible at all? The fact that
human beings, who are said to be all members of the same species,
can come up with so many different ways to order their lives, is
extraordinary. No other species has this variability.
One of the
things this implies is that a species capable of this diversity
across spatial boundaries can also be capable of great diversity
over temporal boundaries. That is, they can change and that can mean
growth or regression.
Another major point here is this:
obviously, in general, human
beings are not genetically programmed to be members of one or
another specific social group, though there may be some genetic
implications here (especially when you consider a genetic mix
between Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal).
What has been noted is that a
child born into one social order can be raised from infancy in
another social order and learn to function perfectly in that adopted
Each social group creates its own constraints and imposes them on
its members. This means that there is a lot of diversity to be noted
between different social groups, but within any one group, diversity
is not tolerated very well! (Remember the authoritarian personality
traits listed earlier?)
If you move from being a member of one group
to another group, you must change all your thinking, adapt to a
different set of constraints that are imposed on you by the group
you live among.
Of course, some people can move from the social group they are born
in to another quite easily because they are born with the mindset
that is normal for that group. Anthropologists don't generally stay
up to date on cognitive science findings.
What this means is that there is a genetic potential for
diversification regarding thought and conduct born into every single
human being, a potential that permits growth in any direction
whatsoever, that can be inhibited and/or shaped by society.
question is, how?
One theory of human society is that of the 'social contract' which
posits that a group of individuals get together and draw up an
agreement to their mutual advantage by which they will all abide,
and a 'society' is thus formed.
The problem with this theory is that
it is circular. It presupposes the very thing it purports to explain
already exists: that human beings are already constrained by some
values that allow them to get together to draw up this alleged
contract. Such a group must already be able to conceptualize a
situation in the future where they will benefit from being bound to
these other people in a contract. (Keep in mind that this is an
evolutionist's thoughts I am describing here!)
outlines the basic theory of anthropology regarding how societies
"The way in which you restrain people from doing a wide variety of
things, not compatible with the social order of which they are
members, is that you subject them to ritual.
The process is simple:
you make them dance round a totem pole until they are wild with
excitement and become jellies in the hysteria of collective frenzy;
you enhance their emotional state by any device, by all the locally
available audio-visual aids, drugs, dance, music and so on; and once
they are really high, you stamp upon their minds the type of concept
or notion to which they subsequently become enslaved.
the savage wakes up with a bad hangover and a deeply internalized
concept. The idea is that the central feature of religion is ritual,
and the central role of ritual is the endowment of individuals with
compulsive concepts which simultaneously define their social and
natural world and restrain and control their perceptions and
comportment, in mutually reinforcing ways.
These deeply internalized
notions henceforth oblige them to act within the range of prescribed
limits. Each concept has a normative binding content, as well as a
kind of organizational descriptive content. The conceptual system
maps out social order and required conduct, and inhibits
inclinations to thought or conduct which would transgress its
I can see no other explanation concerning how social and conceptual
order and homogeneity are maintained within societies which, at the
same time, are so astonishingly diverse when compared with each
other. One species has somehow escaped the authority of nature, and
is no longer genetically programmed to remain within a relatively
narrow range of conduct, so it needs new constraints.
range of genetically possible conduct is constrained in any one
particular herd, and obliged to respect socially marked bounds. This
can only be achieved by means of conceptual constraint, and that in
turn must somehow be instilled.
Somehow, semantic, culturally
transmitted limits are imposed on men..."
Anthropology and Politics, Blackwell, 1995.)
While I have great admiration for Gellner, I have to point out that
this theory of how to control human beings was understood in pretty
much this way many thousands of years ago.
In the course of my
reading, I once came across a passage translated from an
archaeological dig - a Hittite tablet - where the king wrote that
the priesthood needed the king to establish their religious
authority and the king needed the priests to establish his right to
rule. This control comes sharply into view in the falsification of
history. History, itself, becomes part of the control.
control of daily information is just history in the making.
how this process works on the individual level, a passage in Barbara
Oakley's Evil Genes describes what 'dancing around the totem pole
with ones social group' does to the human brain - including
scientists and creationists, both of whom have very strong
attachments to their belief systems:
"A recent imaging study by psychologist
Drew Westen and his
colleagues at Emory University provides firm support for the
existence of emotional reasoning.
Just prior to the 2004 Bush-Kerry
presidential elections, two groups of subjects were recruited -
fifteen ardent Democrats and fifteen ardent Republicans. Each was
presented with conflicting and seemingly damaging statements about
their candidate, as well as about more neutral targets such as actor
Tom Hanks (who, it appears, is a likable guy for people of all
Unsurprisingly, when the participants were
asked to draw a logical conclusion about a candidate from the other
- 'wrong' - political party, the participants found a way to arrive
at a conclusion that made the candidate look bad, even though logic
should have mitigated the particular circumstances and allowed them
to reach a different conclusion.
Here's where it gets interesting.

In essence, the participants were not about to let facts get in the
way of their hot-button decision making and quick buzz of reward.
'None of the circuits involved in conscious reasoning were
particularly engaged,' says Westen. 'Essentially, it appears as if
partisans twirl the cognitive kaleidoscope until they get the
conclusions they want, and then they get massively reinforced for
it, with the elimination of negative emotional states and activation
of positive ones'...
Ultimately, Westen and his colleagues believe that 'emotionally
biased reasoning leads to the "stamping in" or reinforcement of a
defensive belief, associating the participant's "revisionist"
account of the data with positive emotion or relief and elimination
The result is that partisan beliefs are calcified, and
the person can learn very little from new data,' Westen says.
Westen's remarkable study showed that neural information processing
related to what he terms 'motivated reasoning'... appears to be
qualitatively different from reasoning when a person has no strong
emotional stake in the conclusions to be reached.
The study is thus the first to describe the neural processes that
underlie political judgment and decision making, as well as to
describe processes involving emote control, psychological defense,
confirmatory bias, and some forms of cognitive dissonance.
significance of these findings ranges beyond the study of politics:
'Everyone from executives and judges to scientists and politicians
may reason to emotionally biased judgments when they have a vested
interest in how to interpret "the facts,"' according to Westen."
(Barbara Oakley, Evil Genes, Prometheus Books, 2008.)
In short, a human brain that is calcified in a belief system -
believing it because their social group, peers, family, also believe
it - literally experiences pain if they try to open their mind and
think in an unlimited and unbiased way.
The same thing must happen
to a person trying to understand the different social constraints
that are accepted as perfectly normal in a different cultural group.
The implications are truly enormous. It can also explain why science
is so corrupt! This is, essentially, a look inside the brain of the
But there is more to this than meets the eye.
John Schumaker, in his
The Corruption of Reality, points out that human beings seem to
come hardwired with a need to dissociate. I think that this is
actually a need to make contact with the higher self - the field of
information, if you like, that is transduced by

Cro-Magnon ancestors, and some of us may have DNA that connects us
to our Neanderthal ancestors - just a roll of the DNA dice, for the
most part. (See Mithen's The Prehistory of the Mind for cognitive
In the Neanderthal-dominant individual (taking
that as an hypothesis), the brain's ability to dissociate can simply
be a normal state of being - a brain with no overseer or fully human
consciousness enabling the coordination of the various parts and
functions of the brain.
It can also result in other mental
disorders. In the individual with Cro-Magnon/fully human DNA
connection, the brain's capacity to dissociate has the potential to
be utilized in a completely different way:
a means of accessing and
connecting to archetypal realms, realms of pure consciousness.
In any event, it seems clear from the evidence that Schumaker
presents, that it is a hardwired function in all human-type beings
that is just waiting to be taken advantage of by any snake-oil
salesman that comes along.
It is also abundantly evident that those
who do not utilize this ability of the brain - those who suppress it
- suffer from a myriad of physical disorders.

There is an epidemic in the world today that doesn't get nearly
enough attention: the epidemic of stress.
According to the latest
statistics, human beings are 100 times more likely to have
significant emotional/mental problems than people born a hundred
years ago. Adult rates of depression and anxiety have tripled just
since 1990!!! Over 80% of people who go to a doctor with physical
problems also complain of excessive stress.
These problems are
increasing so fast that, within the next ten years or so, the
primary causes of early death and disability will be stress,
outranking most diseases, accidents and violence. So, something
serious is going on and it is really bad.
My guess is that it is due
to the psychopathic (aka Neanderthal-dominant) effort to totally
eliminate any concepts of spirituality from our reality.
This is, in
essence, what is at the root of evolutionary theory and why it
dominates science today. Science has been taken over by
Neanderthal-dominant individuals, human-looking beings who
effectively do not have a spiritual nature though they may certainly
have the higher brain functions with dead-end spirit connections; no
possibility of developing conscience.
Łobaczewski points out that psychopaths naturally adopt a
materialist, evolutionary worldview (because this is all they can

Łobaczewski is rare among psychologists in that
he accepts this 'spiritual' hardwiring as natural, albeit
undeveloped in most humans.
Given the above, it's not difficult to see how the corruption of
science plays itself out, and what it means for humanity.
Psychopaths, once in positions of power and influence, forbid areas
of science that they know are dangerous to their position. It's a
natural progression to apply this to the study of consciousness.
They promote their own inner landscape (materialism) via science and
project it onto humanity at large, effectively blocking the means by
which they can be identified as abnormal. By creating such a
semantic barrier, they can inhibit and shape our 'genetic potential
for diversification of thought and conduct' in the direction of
their choice. We lose the necessary tools with which to discover the
true origins of their pathology, and the true potentials within
By denying the existence of an ordering principle

So, how did they do it? How did pathological hybrids insinuate
themselves into a stable, peaceful, homogeneous society that had
been that way for literally thousands of years?
I suggest that it
was due to sex, due to some of these hybrids utilizing their
predatory skills to spread their genes among the Cro-Magnon
This is a problem that has exercised me to no end. It's easy enough
to just say that the hybrids went around raping women and spread
their genes that way; certainly, some of that occurred. But when you
consider the mixture of genetic types, you begin to realize that
there were certainly some of them that put that predatory hunger for
material goods and women to work in more creative ways due to the
brainpower that had been acquired by the mixing.
Not only that,
infants born of such rapes would be liable to become victims of
infanticide if there was not some compelling quality that prevented
it. So, the obvious pathological types would have extinct

a psychopath may use his eyes and words to entrance and
bait a woman to his bed where he 'bonds' with her via 'super sex'.
He uses tender, romantic words, gestures, promises, etc.
On the other hand, normal guys generally do not feel comfortable
gazing into the eyes of their beloved, speaking romantic words,
performing wildly romantic gestures and certainly, most men are
sexually inhibited or downright juvenile in their sexual behavior.

see stark depictions of the very 'cannibal artist' hypothesized
A psychopath observes his prey, does all the things that he has
learned will capture her, and then he bends her to his evil will.
Why don't normal men observe their intended, not as prey, but as the
object of devotion and giving? Why don't they learn everything about
her, what she is, what she wants, what she needs, and then give it
to her as an act of love?
Well, that's one thing that occurs to me. And the reason I bring it
up is, as I said, because the interaction between the psychopath and
his prey is a caricature of what seems to be part of the Cro-Magnon
religious view of the world that prevailed in the Golden Age, and
something that we have completely lost.
If the stories about Sodom
and Gomorrah are dim memories of
the destruction of Atlantis
conflated with later cometary impacts as I suspect, and if we
consider the ancient stories linking the Deluge to some 'ritual
fault' or sexual excess, we may now be getting some dim insight into
what that might have been.
It also gives all-new meaning to the
"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the
earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw
the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives
of all which they chose...
There were giants in the earth in those
days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the
daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became
mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
And God saw that the
wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination
of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
John van Seters thinks that the Bible was actually written very late
and was heavily influenced by Greek mythology. Other experts agree.
So is this just a take-off on the heroic tales of the Greeks which
are obviously about some seriously disturbed people? And are those
ancient tales redactions of memories of cataclysmic times? (Again,
see The Diluvian Impact and Man and Impact in the Americas for
fairly comprehensive coverage of the actual stories and myths.)
Getting back to the caricature problem: As I said, I think that what
psychopaths do is a caricature of what normal love between spiritual
people might be like, how we evolved to interact with one another
There are many people who feel acutely this lack of understanding in
our world, who long for Unity of purpose and to 'belong' to their
'own kind', so to say. This deep impulse is what the Black Magicians
such as psychopathic religious and political leaders play upon to
achieve their own entropic goals. This longing for Union with
another soul that understands and accepts one and loves
unconditionally and who gives all and to whom one can give all is
what is at the core of women who love psychopaths.
And it is at the
core of many people who become followers of religions and
ideologies, and whose 'passion' is abused so that they become
fanatics and 'radicals'.
In short, it seems to me that what psychopaths do works because they
have observed women and know what to do to lure and capture them.
And this works because these women have a certain 'something' inside
them that is looking for a real love and they mistake the caricature
for the real because they are ignorant of the facts of psychopathy.
They don't realize that they have 'spiritual love binding-sites'
that can be bound by a 'drug' (i.e., the psychopath) which does not
act in the way the real neurochemical would act (i.e., the true
spiritual love from a man who can give and receive true love).
idea raises a lot of issues, not the least of which is what
genuinely spiritual men need to do to get over their hang-ups and
learn to give on all levels: mentally, emotionally, physically and
spiritually; and women who need to learn how to distinguish the true
from the false.
Returning to our survey of what must have happened to lead humanity
from the Golden Age into the type of society that can create so much
cosmic discord that the celestial bodies themselves arrange for his
extinction, we find Ernest Gellner suggesting that, because social
constructs are little more than 'semantic limits' that are imposed
on people from the outside, change is possible.
But he notes that
this must be cumulative, a sort of heating the frog in the pan of
"[This] also makes social change possible, change based not on any
genetic transformation, but rather on cumulative development in a
certain direction, consisting of a modification of the semantic
rather than genetic system of constraints...
The preservation of
order is far more important for societies than the achievement of
beneficial change.... most change is not at all beneficial; most of
it would disrupt a social order without any corresponding

This is where we find the key to understand the corruption of

It seems that a new semantic construct has been
in process since the Renaissance. Oddly enough, the Renaissance that
gave birth to this new mode of thinking looked back almost 2000
years to the great minds of classical Greece and Rome for their
mathematical, philosophical, and logical approaches!
(Of course, Fomenko suggests, with strong evidence to back it up, that the
'ancient writings' of classical times were actually written during
the Renaissance itself and were masterful forgeries!)

authority, not experience, authority or spiritual beliefs. This
caused a shift in the way scholars saw themselves and the rest of
humanity. This was, in general, a positive trend. This method laid

attitude toward prior belief systems and histories.

sophistication of the remains that were discovered, and stories of a
lost Golden Age were rejected out of hand.
Along came Darwin and his
ideas became entrenched in all the sciences. So, it has been the
steady application of materialistic evolutionary thinking that is
behind the explanation of the order of the universe that prevails
today. There are, undoubtedly, psychopaths in the woodpile here

controls most of our social constructs and institutions - because we

There are other ways to induce changes and one of those is by the
use of shocks - physical or emotional - to the human system which,
if the shock is sufficient, more or less 'melts down' and becomes
plastic enough to remold in a new configuration of social beliefs

violence is a time-tested method used by elites to 'melt down' a
population and make them amenable to changes in the environment that
they would not previously have accepted.
However, there is a problem
here: the elites cannot do this openly against their own population
because it would not be tolerated; it would be seen as an in-group
And so, the violence must be presented as that of an
'enemy' or a different social group.
Certainly, there are changes that occur in a society as a
consequence of their organization being disrupted or destroyed by
war - enemy attack - and in some cases it only strengthens the
resolve of the attacked social group to hold more firmly to their
social construct. It can also lead to shifts in values that

propensity to resist so that the task of re-shaping the society in
question - 'pacifying' them, as they call it - is easier. Poland
under Hitler and later under the Soviets is a case in point. The
Germans considered the Poles to be an inferior race as they did
other Slavic nations.
So, according to the plan, the Poles were to
be sorted according to strictly racist criteria. Those Poles with
German ancestry were to be reclassified as ethnic Germans. The
transformation of Poland into a German province was to be carried
out over a short period of twenty-five or thirty years. Hence, no
mercy was to be shown to this population.
And, to guarantee the
success of this fast despoliation, the intelligentsia was to be
"It sounds cruel," Hitler reportedly told Hans Frank,
"but such is the law of life".
Let's use some social anthropology to try to figure out what our
Cro-Magnon society might have been like.
Ernest Gellner points out
that the ability to be able to 'get along' with others,
to avoid the chaos of the potential lack of constraint of the human
being, to figure out how to utilize deeply internalized concepts,
must have come first.
He asks the question:
which came first, this
extraordinary ability to self-regulate by agreement with others and
the wide variety of ways this can be done, or language which is
necessary to even do these things?
The two abilities are obviously
interdependent. Once you have the possibility of an unlimited range
of possible ways to behave, that behavior has to be restricted in
order to get along with others, and there has to be some sort of
system of signs that indicate the limits, if only in your own head!
Language is a set of markers that delineate the boundaries of our
conduct in our engagement with others; that is, language has
replaced genetic limits on behavior.
This means that a number of things must have come together all at
once: the possibility of a wide range of conduct, the means of
signaling the optional and optimal ways of behaving between members
of a group, and the presence of a system of inculcating those
individuals into the system, i.e., ritual.
This set of features must
have arrived jointly, and that is a big problem for science when
they try to use evolution as the explanation.
At the very same time, another set of features arrived. For most
species, fire spells threat. So does direct eye contact and the
opening of the mouth and the exposure of teeth. Combine these
elements with the placing of food between a group of individuals
other than parent and infant, and you have a recipe for conflict and
violence in any other species.
But, clearly, at some point, some
group of humans turned all of these signals around and transformed
them into the very essence of humanity. This change in behavior is
evidenced by central hearths with clear spaces around them where
diners gather in a circle. In the sharing of food and the
accompanying courtesies, humans exhibit their fundamental
distinction and separation from the animal kingdom.
Of all the things that humans do, sharing food is the least
'evolutionary'. No other species followed this path of mutual
sharing and support which required being able to conceptualize space
and time abstractly.
What logic of nature, as we witness it in the
animal kingdom, would follow such a trajectory so foreign to the
As it happens, the communal meal is an important symbol to almost
all ancient religious ensembles. The sharing of food penetrates to
the most fundamental differences between views about humanity and
the world at large. Perhaps they bear witness to Cro-Magnon vs.
Neanderthal? I think it was a Paleolithic ritual that was handed
down as a clue to reveal who was and was not pathological in those
Just think of 'The Last Supper' and its possible
'last supper' was something like:
'eat together - share food - in
remembrance of me - you are not animals, you are spiritual beings'.
Over millennia, bread replaced the original sharing of meat around
the fire, but the symbology was still the same.
The fact is, it
seems that the largest brains and most 'human' behavior originated
among those who cooked and ate meat.
Da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'

on communal eating
The point is, on this earth - or on the Fifth Planet or Mars - there
must have been a beginning and anyone who wants to understand the
human dilemma cannot avert their gaze from the question of how it
We know that human beings are alienated from themselves
and each other, and we desperately need to understand why in the
fullest sense, not just a hodge-podge of theoretical patches. Of
course, this presupposes that man has an 'essence' to begin with.
Paleontology tries to discover the steps that would lead animals to
fully human behavior. Maybe it isn't steps, maybe it is just simply
the difference between what is animal-driven and what is truly
human? But still, the research is useful to us in analyzing the
Anthropology tries to discover by what steps can one
proceed from a certain social order that is reasonably stable,
imposed by ritual, to a society where humans can, of their own
volition, commit themselves abstractly and at a distance, to
specific behaviors that are not genetically imposed, i.e., the
alleged 'social contract'.
Gellner believed that we live in such a society - the social
contract kind. He felt that the ritually constrained society was
neither normal nor acceptable.
He failed to notice all the myriad
ways in which dancing around the totem pole has been replaced by
other equally effective ways of inculcating an individual into a
group identity - the authoritarian dynamic that is probably driven
by psychopaths and the semantic blocks they place on humanity via
their promotion of certain sciences and embargo on others.
According to the mainstream scientific view, the
Revolution - the switch to agriculture - was one of the steps that
led us to where we are today. This event involved the development of
a system for the production and storage of food.
Apparently, a human
society already highly diversified and in the process of changing
over to growing and storing food was already - according to Gellner
and others - a 'ritually restrained society'.
"But it [agriculture] was also a tremendous trap. The main
consequence of the adoption of food production and storage was the
pervasiveness of political domination.
A saying is attributed to the
prophet Muhammad which affirms that subjection enters the house with
the plough. This is profoundly true. The moment there is a surplus
and storage, coercion becomes socially inevitable, having previously
been optional. A surplus has to be defended. It also has to be
divided. No principle of division is either self-justifying or
self-enforcing: it has to be enforced by some means and by someone.
This consideration, jointly with the simple principle of pre-emptive
violence, which asserts that you should be the first to do unto them
that which they will do unto you if they get the chance, inescapably
turns people into rivals. Though violence and coercion were not
absent from pre-agrarian society, they were contingent. They were
not, so to speak, necessarily built into it.
But they are
necessarily built into agrarian society...
The need for production and defense also impels agrarian society to
value offspring, which means that, for familiar Malthusian reasons,
their populations frequently come close to the danger point... The
members of agrarian societies know the conditions they are in, and
they do not wait for disaster to strike.
They organize in such a way
as to protect themselves, if possible, from being at the end of the
With agriculture came domination
So, by and large, agrarian society is authoritarian and strongly
prone to domination. It is made up of a system of protected,
defended storehouses, with differential and protected access.
Discipline is imposed, not so much by constant direct violence, but
by enforced differential access to the storehouses. Coercion does
not only underwrite the place in the queue; the threat of demotion,
the hope of promotion in the queue also underwrites discipline.
Hence coercion can generally be indirect.
The naked sword is only
used against those who defy the queue-masters altogether...
...the overwhelming majority of agrarian societies are really
systems of violently enforced surplus storage and surplus
protection... Political centralization generally, though not
universally, follows surplus production and storage... A
formalized machinery of enforcement supplements or partly replaces
(Gellner, op. cit.)
The next step is, of course, writing because writing is necessary to
keep track of what is stored, who is in the queue in what rank, and
Writing then leads to something else interesting: the
codification of meanings and the storage of these codifications,
generally dogmatic ideas. This means that ideas can be shared across
time and space. If the doctrine is centralized and endowed with a
single apex/origin, i.e., an exclusive and jealous god, this can
have very bad consequences across time and space.
This then leads
back to coercive semantic techniques with a kick: it is widespread
and centralized with a very small ruling elite. There are the
specialists - priests - who legitimate the beliefs, and the
specialists of violence that enforce it. Their pre-eminence
testifies to the fact that the maintenance of social discipline is a
problem and is seldom attainable without them.
Society constituted on the principles of the agrarian surplus and
storage way of life cannot manage without the help of the elite and
once they have acquired an elite, it is very, very hard to resist
their growing demands, and even harder to get rid of them. Moreover,
an agrarian society based on accumulating, storing, and dispensing
material goods is easily converted to an industrial society, and so
Anthropologically and sociologically, that's the short
version of how it happened. Somehow, man with full conceptual
abilities leapt upon the stage of history and started dancing around
the totem pole and really hasn't stopped. Evolution, doncha know?
So, what do I think that society was like in the Golden Age? Again,
the answer can be found in social anthropology.
According to the most recent archaeological and paleontological
research, the very oldest form of religion that can be identified
with Cro-Magnon man was the worship of the Celestial Mother Goddess.
The sculpted figures of the Paleolithic era are, in a way, directly
connected to contemporary images of the Virgin Mary who would, in
the terms of my previous article, be a class-A 'witch', or Holy
Thus it seems that there has been a continuous transmission
of this striking concept throughout human history. The implicit
message in the image of the goddess is a vision of all life as a
The feminine image is like a lens that focuses our
perception of the universe as a sacred whole, alive and giving, and
we on earth are the children of the Cosmos. In this context, you
could say that the Holy Grail is the Goddess religion - using
religion in its original sense, something that binds people
The earth and all creation were the same substance as the
goddess and the Divine was immanent as Creation.
The Venus of Willendorf
an example of a Paleolithic era mother
This is what we have lost. Nowhere in our present Dark Age is the
goddess image - the Holy Grail lens through which to view our world
- to be found.
The image of the Virgin Mary is not one of Queen of
the Earth; she is, significantly, only 'Queen of Heaven'. Since
mythic images ultimately govern a culture, and ours is a culture
that has debased the feminine for many thousands of years, we find
here the root of the horror of our reality: that we have desacralized Nature. The earth is not experienced as a living being,
instead, it is polluted almost to the point of destruction.
'Pollution' originally meant the profaning of the sacred, so the
term is quite apt.
Here is where we must consider the organizing principle of
Cro-Magnon humans no matter where they came from. At some point,
there was an impulse to form societies whether this was due to
spontaneous generation of DNA or long, slow, painful evolution
somewhere, some time, somehow. It doesn't matter which it was, the
principle is still the same.
Clearly, something special happened for
animals to become human, something that differentiated man from his
proto-human ancestors (and thus far, evolution, as it is formulated,
has been abysmally inadequate to explain this).
We can examine the society of Neanderthal to see what Cro-Magnon was
distinctly not! Proto-human gangs - Neanderthals - were small,
cohesive bands dominated by violence. The strong dominated the weak,
but they needed to be cohesive to survive. It was rude and vulgar
competition and conflict for resources, both food and females. The
cohesion was enforced, a sort of rule by thuggery.
environment is not conducive to any kind of innovation such as the
creation and development of tools or the ideas that would lead to
tools. Studying the history of Neanderthal man suggests that this
was, indeed, life in the Neanderthal camp. Two hundred thousand
years of the same old recycled tool kits with never an innovation.
Innovative individuals, as we know them in our own societies, are
very often not physically strong or aggressive. Perhaps they think
because they are less able to act in the world physically or perhaps
they become less aggressive because they think so much.
such individuals would not survive in a rule-by-thugs society
because the thugs would not only steal their innovations from them,
(and be unable to reproduce them themselves) but would not feed them
either, so such a dog-eat-dog society is not a place where
creativity and innovation can flourish.
Depiction of Neanderthal life
in the Krapina cave in Croatia
Cro-Magnon societies included communal hearths, communal activities,
and the sites show that areas were set aside where groups of people
performed different tasks for the good of the group as a whole.
thus it is suggested by Marxist social anthropologist, Yuri Semenov,
that communism (the real kind as practiced by the early Christians,
not the Soviet version which was totalitarianism with the name of
'communism' attached) was something practiced by the earliest true
humans - the thing that made them human, or at least expressed their
humanity - and something which was the essence of life itself.
In an egalitarian, sharing, communistic community where each
individual is taken care of and gives back what he is capable of
giving, innovators can flourish.
The toolmaker that cannot hunt gets
fed in exchange for making the hunting tools, to give a very
simplistic example. The bottom line is this: without a communistic
system in operation, there would be no advances for humanity at all.
The problem is, we are inculcated into a psychopathic reality from
birth and all our thinking processes (programs, if you like),
develop as a way to survive in such a reality. Those programs
include the early implantation of a competitive, dog-eat-dog, us-vs.-them,
We simply cannot imagine life in a
different world where caring replaces competition, where no one ever
asks 'am I my brother's keeper' because all understand from infancy
that 'I am my brother'.
This is because psychopaths lack these
essential human qualities that foster social ties, sharing, bonding,
caring (what Łobaczewski called "natural syntonic responses" that
are a product of our human instinctive substratum).
Communism definitely explains how early humans could have survived
and developed societies; we can see that it was a necessary
condition, but we can't see how it came about. What would turn an
animalistic creature that is only concerned with food, mating,
possibly warmth, and little else into a gentle, caring strong man
who looks after the weaker members of his society?
Science cannot answer this question satisfactorily. Oh, yes, they
use 'natural selection' as the god that endows humans with a
collection of characteristics by killing off the ones that don't
have them, but the same problem exists: a whole set of
characteristics would have to have emerged fully formed on the stage
of history at once.
It is totally absurd to follow the evolutionary
line of reasoning on this point where it is said that natural
selection operated on bands of individuals rather than individuals
because that already suggests that a band of proto-humans included
members that acted in truly human ways.
And keep in mind that I am
in no way denying the workings of evolution in a general sense:
is clear that evolution is a big part of the processes of life, but
there is something more to it than the strict materialistic version
Agriculture goes hand in hand with the dominating, punishing God.
From Babylonian mythology onward, (and undoubtedly before, but this
is the earliest that is recorded), Nature began to be described as a
chaotic force to be mastered, and the god took the role of
conquering it and imposing order on the chaos. The goddess became
almost exclusively associated with Nature and the God took on the
quality of a countering 'spirit' - an opposition that had not
As a result, humanity and nature became
polarized - in opposition to one another - and it is the
Judeo-Christian mythology that incorporated the Babylonian myths,
giving rise to our present day afflictions.
This attitude is implicit in the assumption that the spiritual and
physical worlds are different and opposed, and this has led to other
splits in our thinking, divorcing mind from matter, soul from body,
thinking from feeling, intellect from intuition, making things black
and white, evil and good, and with no understanding of the third
The feminine principles of spontaneity, instinct, and intuition,
have been lost as our guides to experience the sanctity and unity of
In Judeo-Christian thought, there is no feminine dimension
and our culture is formed in the image of a masculine god who orders
everything from outside and beyond creation where, of course, the
Virgin Mary is under his thumb.
It was only in 1950, by popular
demand, that the Virgin Mary was finally declared 'Assumed into
Heaven, Body and Soul'.
In other mythic constructs, the goddess did not go away entirely,
even if she was debased; for example, Zeus (and other gods)
'married' the goddesses and they retained their places to some
extent, presiding over fertility, childbirth, the home, and even
Hebrew mythology - which was adopted by Christianity - however,
forced the goddess completely underground; she became dragons:
Leviathan and Behemoth or the evil Canaanite goddess, Astarte, and
more abstractly, Yahweh's wisdom - Sophia - or his presence -
Eve, the temptress, was human and susceptible to evil, and
Adam gave her the name of the goddess:
'Eve, mother of all living'.
This little twist was fatal and limiting to the feminine principle.
But the reality of the feminine principle is always there, lurking
in the subconscious of man. The action of the goddess, denied in
formal doctrine, acted implicitly and indirectly, unacknowledged,
but persistent and often distorted. Attempting to eradicate the
feminine principle was equivalent to trying to destroy fully half of
humanity, not to mention half of the human psyche in all humans, men
Cro-Magnon came from somewhere, and something corrupted the world of
Cro-Magnon. Whatever it was that led peaceful hunter-gatherer types
to create a complex technological civilization that then took the
peoples of the world into an abyss, may very well still be present
in our own society.
And it is doing its darndest to destroy the one
thing that could save us: True Science.
It was in the discoveries of science that the goddess first began to
emerge again. And here, the image emerges as it was in the days of
old: not a personalized being, but rather a vision of sacred life, a
whole, in which all living beings participate and relate dynamically
to one another.
Physics demonstrated that in the subatomic universe,
there was chaos that was waiting and willing to become real in a
relationship with the observer, sort of like love between the lover
and the beloved. The web of space and time is a characteristic image
of the old goddess myths where the mother goddess once spun the
cosmos as a web from her eternal womb via a spindle, whorls, to
become the cosmic web of life.
The Ocean of limitless energy is the
image of all the mother goddesses who were born from the sea. But of
course, even in physics, the goddess was assaulted with the
splitting of the atom. In short, the predominant mythic image of the
Dark Age - the god without a goddess - continues to perpetuate and
support the oppositional and mechanical paradigm that science itself

technologies that we don't have. These technologies were subtle,
working with natural energies, in harmony with the world and the
people rather than seeking to overpower it.

their emphasis on spirituality and loving and honoring Nature and

staggering. The comforts enjoyed by the Cro-Magnon peoples
continually surprise archaeologists, and it is a certainty that they
were surrounded by the most sophisticated and enthralling art ever
known. There are numerous indicators that our Golden Age ancestors
lived not only a rich and comfortable life; they also lived longer
To draw this discussion to a close, I want to say that science -
true science that is open enough to explore even our spiritual
realities - is our only hope.
It has only been via scientific
research that we have found the disjecta membra of a lost
civilization, a universal prehistoric cosmology that sustained a
Golden Age for many thousands of years. We still have some of the
ideas and stories about the nature and the origin of man that were
formerly the birthright of people around the entire planet Earth.
If we admit the possibility of agencies of consciousness involved in
evolution, then we may also consider that these agencies can be
numerous and different. Given the great diversity of Nature, we can
suppose that there are as great a variety of spiritual agencies as
there have been forms of life on Earth.
Archangels, angels, and
devils are familiar classical ideas that are today considered
outmoded between the monotheistic gods of creationism and
evolutionism. But the existence of hosts of spiritual agencies was
the answer articulated by the ancients.
