Exposing the Ignorance and Evil Behind the Pandemic with Alex Berenson

"Yes, so let's just start there. I mean, February 2020, you were like investigating marijuana and other things and then the virus comes and you just decided, I'm gonna start looking into this and I started to come across your stuff on sub stack where, you know, Aaron gin, who you might know is another guy that was really into it in the early days. And I was so outspoken about the lockdowns and I was we were really into it because I really had nothing else to do. Everything was locked down. And I'm by no means an expert, but just my common sense instincts that something's wrong and you are so informative and so courageous early on, walk us through that because you probably never planned to be center stage of one of the most important medical issues that humanity's ever faced. No, I certainly didn't. And, you know, I was working on a book about really about U.S. drug policy that would have been and I hope to write one day still a follow-up to tell your children sort of broadly about this, you know, the epidemic of legalization, the sort of very broad campaign to legalize drugs that we've seen and not just cannabis, but really all drugs that we've seen in the last ten or 15 years. And so I was working on that and then of course, you know, like everybody else, I saw the videos coming out of China. I think we were all pretty nervous back in January and February. And then in March 2020 and I talk about this in pandemia, I've read that Neil Ferguson report the imperial college London report that said, oh, if we don't do anything, 2 million Americans will die, but even worse, if we do, if we do mitigate a million Americans will die and we need to really lock down our society. And, you know, within days that started to happen in New York and California and everywhere else, and then and then amazingly to me, Neil Ferguson totally changed his prediction. Ten days after releasing this report that really shocked the world and pushed the United States and Europe into Loch Ness, he basically said, oh, you know what? I was wrong. I was wrong by 95%. Did I say 500,000 deaths? I'm at 20,000. Okay, so look, the science or the data was evolving very fast around the coronavirus. Back at that time. And everybody's got the right to look at new data and change their views. But what was shocking to me was that the media was not willing to acknowledge what Ferguson had

"The naval divers notice these mysterious underwater visitors. Were nearly ten feet tall before anyone knew what was happening. These ten feet tall humanoids wearing no scuba gear swam even deeper into the icy waters disappearing into the murkiness below naturally. Of course the whole group was like What the navy guy charge of this group reported the strange encounter to lieutenant colonel. Kennedy's vieira of who conducted periodic training of reconnaissance stivers or frogmen from turkistan and central asian military regions. Colonels farah was also like What so he sent seven highly trained divers to lake baikal to capture one of the creatures so there at lake baikal the naval divers descended deeper and deeper into the increasingly frigid. Water apparently got lucky and encountered the same mysterious creature on their first try. One of them tried to throw awaited. Met over one of the creatures here. The divers luck ran out some kind of invisible force probably a high powered sonar wave. Shot the seven divers back. No one knows if it came from the humanoid creatures themselves or from some equipment that was hidden deeper in the dark waters. Whatever it was it blasted the divers with such force and speed that. According to local witnesses they were catapulted more than thirty feet into the air before splashing back down into the lake at which point one of them turned to the other. And said we're gonna need a bigger net that was jaws reference also. I'm kidding i'm pretty sure none of them could say anything at this point now because of my aforementioned terror of the water i myself have never had to surface from the great depths of any body of water let alone been thrown from the depths into the air and again i will say my terror is well placed because apparently the human body is not meant for such activities. If you surfaced too quickly from deep water you can get the benz which is not only a pretty good radiohead album. But it's a pretty awful disease where nitrogen leaks out of your blood into your body and wreaks havoc.

"The modern day fascination with old nasty started in nineteen thirty three when aldy mckay and her husband were driving along loch ness and we all know that lock is scottish for lake right so they were driving along the loc when less than a mile out in the water.

The creature was large enough that when it took its final dive under the water sent out huge waves.

"Yeah well so loch ness actually this is kind of another thing but up to about eighteen thousand years ago if you look at the history of the earth and and fossils. Loch ness was actually covered in ice. So i promise. I'm going somewhere with this because i know eighteen thousand years ago. Sounds like a long time but lochner ness was completely covered in ice and the ice only receded about seventeen eighteen thousand years ago according to fossil records that means that while it was covered in ice. This animal was under the ice right so under the ice with not enough fish to sustain it so it can't get any food from like the ground around it. It's just relying on the fish in the water right so if that couldn't have possibly happened it's too cold. Reptilian thing would not live through that so then people argue well. What if it's warm blooded. There's never been a history of a warm blooded creature like this ever in the history of the fossil record so that's highly unlikely we would've found something. So then the other argument while when the ice receded couldn't have traveled along the water to get there. There's a problem with that too. Because the there's evidence that shows the ice retreated in a certain way that would've meant that. If a large creature was swimming and ended up in the lock it actually would have been swimming against current in too little of water to actually sustain it for any period of time so it actually would have gotten beached but it wouldn't have had enough food to eat and it's swimming upstream so would have died on the journey. It never would have made it. So that's the. This is all the scientific stuff that i thought was like. This is really really really interesting. It's very interesting. Yeah so like when you look at it this way like i. I didn't even think until. I read this article. I didn't even think about the fact that the lock was too cold but it makes perfect sense. Does yes like this. Animal can't survive in this type of climate. It's not gonna happen like the animals that are there are a are the type of animals that can survive in cold weather like that. There's no reptiles found in that. Lock so the odds of happier. Just just none. There's just nothing there that would say it's true right. Yeah i think. I the the science on. It's very compelling. I never even thought of that either. Thought any of that but that just backs up the same thing that were saying. It's this this popularity and then in nineteen thirty four of this creature with two articles in the fake photo and then it just progressed from there in our you know twenty twenty one and we're we have a bunch of different sightings on google maps and kinds of stuff but none of them are. None of them are logical at all. Exacto yeah i mean that. That's kind of the thing and like even Just another little fun thing so another thing they said about loch ness in its ties getting linked back to the see the actual effectively for this type of animal. It's a trickle of water. And it's actually above sea level and the odds of a large sea creature traveling in a body of water that's above sea level to get anywhere because it's so much uphill and it's hard to do are really really low. I mean it's just gonna be a thing right. It's very interesting. Never never once thought about it. Because i knew. I knew that i think somewhere this lock connects to the ocean does not it does. That's what i was just talking about like the river. The river whatever river locked riggan sei..

"Yeah but i feel like that to appoint we touch on it a lot. But if i think that. I'm gonna see bigfoot. Let's say i'm probably gonna see bigfoot. You know a little baby. Bear amana think it's bigfoot so for real so in one thousand nine hundred eighty three she discussed. How loch ness has for generations been credited for being the home of a fearsome looking monster almost exactly a month after the original article in the courier another account was published on the monster. George spicer and his wife had been driving around the loch when they caught a glimpse of something they had never seen. Before claiming that the creature was the closest thing to a dragon or prehistoric creature that they had ever seen moving across the road back towards the lock with some sort of animal in its mouth. Now this one. I couldn't hear. Because i thought it was somewhat interesting because at least from remembering stuff from when i was a kid reading about this i don't remember ever being out of the water or people talking about it being out of the water and i just miss remembering that no i do. Remember the story Ira george spicer looked familiar in than when you were going through it. Like i do remember at least one documentary. I watched and maybe it was more recently than i think but i remember someone being interviewed at some point. That talked about this sighting where it was like out of the water and doing the basically this exact story so i don't know if this is the one that i remember hearing about but it sounds really familiar to me. So of eventually the creature would be named the loch ness monster often described as having large build with a long neck one or more humps protruding from the raw the water while also brandishing the descriptions of sea serpent dragon or monster fish. They're described various different ways but for the most part long knack seems to carry throughout all the different stories. The body portion. I feel like there are a bunch of stories where they feel like it doesn't have a body like it's a giant snake or something but the long neck thing is like kind of notorious with nessie right for sure. Yeah while mckenzie's account is seemingly the first legitimate report of the creature. The first came far earlier. I mentioned earlier in the sixth century in a biography of saint columba. Is that right hope. So if an story recruiter in the river ness which is a totally separate body body of water but close by biting and killing a man before columba intervening intervened and told the creature to go back the creature as if being pulled into water by rope disappeared which the men believed was a miracle. So this is like this is like a i guess like a biblical ish story that this comes from but i put in here the very first one i think legitimate is the eighteen seventies one because there are a lot of different stories from medieval times in like sea serpents. And that kind of stuff. So it's a different body of water..

Investigators kept an almost constant vigil and in the nineteen sixties. Several british universities launched sonar expeditions in the lake. Nothing conclusive was found in each expedition. The sooner operators detected some type of large moving underwater object in nineteen seventy five and another expedition combined. Sonar and underwater photography in loch ness. A photo was released that appear to show with vaguely resembled the giant flipper of an aquatic animal further sooner expeditions in the nineteen eighties and nineteen ninety s resulted in more inclusive readings revelations in nineteen ninety-four that the famous nineteen thirty.

Nasty and up in loch ness. The year is thirty nine forty four bc a ripple between space and time opens a portal through which a single dragon is unlucky enough to plunge through. This dragon is an animator. Boga dragon hailing from the magical world of fabella the animator boga dragon at perhaps the strangest breeding ritual in all fabella. Procreation was the one and only thing they could naturally kill them on. Fortunately the beast were unable to resist the charm of the opposite sex unable to reproduce until they become servants. The male animator boga dragon died in the act of insemination while the female was left to carry a bb. That would kill her. As it crawled out of the stomach upon birth bbc skimmers were the first stage of the animated braga dragons long cycle skimmers could not get more than a couple feet off the ground upon birth but gradually gained the strength to fly higher as they grew into fliers flyers resembled the most traditional appearance of a dragon. They were able to breathe fire but could stay in this stage for a very long time. Eventually flyers began the metamorphosis and to the final serpent stage as serpents. Their ability to breathe fire disappeared along with oversight wings and sharp talons serpents swam around the see until they found a good meat and began the cycle all over again. As the elderly beast sword over the ancient scottish countryside she began to slide into her final stage of metamorphosis. The dragon naturally slides into the first body of water. She to survive as she continued to shift from flying reptile to in aquatic serpent. The problem here is that the dragon can't naturally die and less at mates and gives birth because old and nessie is the only animator boettger dragon in the region.

What's the Largest Lake in the World?

"Siberia's Lake Cal is not your average. Lake. At forty, nine miles wide by three hundred and ninety, five miles long that seventy, nine by six, hundred and thirty, five kilometers. It's the world's largest freshwater lake and with history that dates back twenty, five, million years it's also Earth's oldest. But size and age aren't the only things that make this. Lake. Special. Lake by cow is also home to more than three thousand, seven, hundred different species, many of which are only found in the Baikal region. That's why by cows often considered the Galapagos of Russia. No in case it's bio-diversity doesn't dazzle you here's another but Julia fact. Lake by cow has its own version of the Loch ness monster. Its name translates to water dragon master and it's described as a giant sturgeon with a prominent stout, an armored plating along the back. The monsters history goes back centuries with ancient carvings depicting this terrifying creature. Interest peaked we thought. So here's a starter guide to this ancient beautiful and mysterious late, which is by the way a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Baikal is located in southern Russia near the border of Mongolia, its depth of five thousand, three, hundred feet about one thousand, six, hundred meters makes it the world's deepest lake about five hundred feet or two hundred meters it's also famous for its clarity of water and ice. When the lake is frozen, you can see dozens of meters or hundreds of feet down. And as we said at the top, it's also the world's largest lake that size twelve, thousand, two, hundred, square miles, or thirty one, thousand, six, hundred square kilometers makes it comparable in volume to the entire Amazon Basin? A first scale? It reportedly takes about three hundred and thirty years for single water molecule to flow from inlet to inlet. So. How did like by cow get so massive About twenty, five, million ago lake by CAL formed through fractures and shifting within Earth's crust. It wasn't Lake Baikal as we know it. Now, though experts believe it was a series of lakes similar to the Great Lakes in the United States while scientists aren't positive how lake by CAL went for many lakes to the behemoth. It is today they do have theories. It could have been sinking earth erosion earthquakes or increased water from melting glaciers although it's likely a mix of these factors and more. That unifying change took place in the pleasing epoch about five point three to two point five million years ago. But this lake isn't finished growing. It's expanding at a rate of about point seven inches to centimeters every year at the same speed at which Africa in South America are drifting apart. At this speed, some scientists believe lake by Baikal is actually an ocean in the making. The lake boasts twenty-seven islands, the largest of which spans two, hundred, eighty square miles or seven, hundred, twenty, five square kilometers and has its own lake mountains and the population of fifteen hundred residents. The locals connected to power van underwater cable in two, thousand and five, and we're connected to the Internet shortly after. Some Call Lake by Cao, the Galapagos of Russia not only because it has an impressive array of those nearly four thousand species but also because eighty percent of those animals are found nowhere else. One reason for this unique biodiversity is the lakes. Array of hydrothermal vents which are commonly found in oceans but lake by cow is the only freshwater lake known to have them. Cold water from the lake enters cracks in the Earth's crust through these hydrothermal vents. When the water reaches magma, it heats up, then returns resurfacing with minerals and heat. These rich minerals are probably the reason some of the lakes most unusual species were able to develop including several unique fish and the nerpa seal species, which is the only exclusively freshwater seal species in the world and its evolution is mysterious and some scientists believe it arrived by a prehistoric river from the Arctic But beyond seals fish other common animals found in the forests and mountains surrounding Lake Baikal include. Elk. Reindeer links wild-boar, and of course, the lakes frequently reported water dragon master. And this ancient lake has another air of mystery about it. UFO sightings. Many locals have reported strange lights and alien spacecraft throughout the years and several Soviet era documents mention ufo instance in sightings around Earth's largest lake. However for all of its natural wonder, amazing wildlife end stranger sides for lake cows one hundred, thousand permanent residents it's simply home. Made, occupations are forestry agriculture, fisheries, hunting, and tourism though that's currently on hold due to covid nineteen. Here's hoping they opened back up soon.

The Yearning for the Unexplained

"Colin dickey joins us now from Brooklyn his new book is called the unidentified mythical monsters, alien encounters, and our obsession with the unexplained Collin. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me on I want to start by talking about another book when it came out pretty much a hundred years ago with a fairly lurid title. What was the book of the damned? Oh the book of the damned, so Charles Fort's as the author of the book damned, and he was a, he was a writer who I think he was. He was on a path to be a kind of I. Guess what you would call a crank writer somebody who had the sort of wild elaborate theory about how human civilization was controlled by radio, being sent from Venus or something like that he unsurprisingly didn't get very far with that particular book and it's it's. It's been lost. It was never published a it got rejected and immediate he he would spend his days down at the new. York Public Library he lived in Manhattan, he would walk. The New York Public Library, and he would just spend his morning reading various newspaper, and scientific, Journal articles about various strange planed things that that he came across everything from ball, lightning, two frogs and fish, falling from the sky, blood rains, just various bizarre things that nobody really could understand. Understand, or how good kind of idea what what was going on here? And he just started collecting those, and what came the book of the damned was this oddball collection of these unexplained phenomenon, and rather than advocates, some kind of theory, what makes the book of the damned so great and strangest? He just kind of puts it all out there and says we don't really have explanations for a lot of these things you know, hence the idea of you know the. The the book of the Damn these for fourth. These are damned facts. These are damned stories because they're. They're excluded from from science and religion was like the early x-files. Yeah, exactly, it's except without going so far as to even say that you know. Aliens are behind it. It's sort of I mean in his later books for it would kind of try in kind of offer a thesis, but those are usually kind of its weakest moments when he's at his best. When. He sort of just kind of throwing out these ideas without necessarily. Of having to answer them, just kind of putting them out there on the table for the rest of us to kind of marvel at our physical copies of this book still around Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah, it's still in print. That's actually in public domain, so they're they're you know you can get lots of different editions of it? I got this this Great Hopi Dover Thrift edition of all four of his books, which is like twelve hundred pages in total and the massive unwieldy thing that kind of falls me from apartment to apartment. All right well, we'll talk about your book now. which will explain why a? Book of the damned might figure into things. Let's start with your subtitle mythical monsters, alien encounters and our obsession with the unexplained. Give us a sense of what territory your book covers. You know enlarge party grew out of the two thousand sixteen election grew out of a lot of the sense of misinformation conspiracy theories, and all these things that were were floating around, and a lot of which was being attributed to social media which I. Think is fair and accurate, but I also. Wanted to dig a little deeper into the genealogy of where some of these beliefs come from and. What I found again and again is you know? Just simply telling somebody, the factual truth about an a given incident or conspiracy theories is usually rarely enough because these beliefs are operating somewhere on a kind of more primal level. I really wanted to understand how we became a culture. That is kind of yearning for the unbelievable. That is yearning for something that is beyond the reach of science and religion, and so ended up going back to crypt the bigfoot lock ness monster chew copper things like that as well as the lost continent of Atlantis, and Maria and an aliens in and UFO's sort of these these three threads that really define the modern particularly in America kind of the twentieth century America's attempt to find something, magical and mysterious. Scientific Rationale Yeah I was GONNA. Ask about who the we is. I'm curious are Americans. Especially Gullible do we have a particular history with conspiracy theory and this mass, hysteria or mythology I'm not sure it's goal ability, and first of all I mean I think that in some sense, there is an almost conscious decision to believe the unbelievable that that runs through a lot of this. It's not entirely exclusive to Americans.

Empty The Pews with Ex-Evangelical Chrissy Stroop

"Hi I'm Christie stroup. I'm a transgender. Ex jellicoe sorry not sorry so you and I first met on twitter. I think around two thousand seventeen shortly after the election. Your Twitter Bio Reids X. Evangelical Writer and Russian History PhD Trans Girl and sometimes snark Easter. I'd like frito briefly. Tell us a little bit about your childhood. Where did you grow up? What was your childhood like so I grew up mostly in north suburb of Indianapolis called. Fisher's was born a small town in Northern Indiana. But my family moved down there When I was around five years old and after kindergarten and with the exception of half of sixth grade I was in Christian schools the entire time of my elementary and secondary education. And when I say Christian school I don't mean a Jesuit Academy or something like that you know the The schools that call themselves Christian schools or Christian Academy's they're usually more like the ones where second lady Karen Pence teaches art where they're very anti. Lgbtq or they mobilized the kids for doing culture wars kind of advocacy and involvements. Illiberal civics if you will so you know. I had a drilled into my head in church and Christian schools from a very early age that liberals are these horrible people who kill babies and we have to stop them and we also have to stop gay people from having rights. Can you talk a little bit? About the history of Evangelical Ism sure the Histories of Evangelical Ism that have been written a lot of them have been written by people who come out of the more like moderate to liberal tradition evangelical right if somewhat sympathetic to it and they want to locate the origins of Evangelical Ism and things like the second grade awakening in the abolitionist movement. And it's true that a kind of evangelical protestantism was a motivating factor for the abolition of slavery in Britain and the United States. But that's not really the ancestor the direct ancestor of what we call evangelical protestantism or what it has mostly become in the United States today. If you WANNA look at what evangelical ISM is in the United States today. And here we're talking mostly about white evangelical. There are some evangelical of color that would also fall into this category but there are also some Christians of color that some people would call evangelical somewhat not someone self defined as evangelical than some would not clear very different and they vote very differently. But you know this right mostly white evangelicalism. It's the descendant of slaveholders Christianity. It's you know the descendant of denominations involved is still all these denominations as well like the Southern Baptist Convention which split off of other Baptists over the issue of slavery because you know these northern Baptist groups decided that they didn't want they didn't think slave owners should be missionaries what became the Southern Baptist Convention. Thought that was very insulting so they broke away so they could have missionary owned slaves. And you know this is also seriously inflected through the Cold War anti communism and in American history that's really inseparable from the civil rights. Movement are far right-wing anticommunist they denounce Martin Luther King as a communist that sort of thing and you know initially people like Jerry Falwell senior. Who of course built the moral majority you know he? He mobilized Christians around opposition to civil rights legislation and integration and today evangelical. Who are still very much in that tradition They try to distance themselves from that history but it is their history and my history too. I mean I grew up that way and they still vote to uphold white supremacism. Even if they won't admit it and there's another key moment there too that I sort of forgot to go over earlier. Which is there. Were these debates in theology in the early twentieth century between the so-called modernists. Who are able to move away from Biblical liberalism and the fundamentalists and this is actually where the term fundamentalists came from. There is a series of pamphlets published starting in Nineteen fifteen called the fundamentals and today's evangelical are also very much the descendants of the fundamentalist side of those early twentieth century debates so evangelical in the United States. It's best to consider the type of fundamentalist Christianity even if some evangelical fundamentalists would define themselves against each other. If we take a step back and look at it through kind of a scholarly framework. It's it's very much a variety of Christian fundamentalism. I wanted to get a better understanding of really what your life was. Like as an evangelical Christian. Can you describe that to me? I mean were you happy yeah. That's a complicated question. And the kind of things that happen to you. When you end up rejecting the ideology when you change politically and religiously from your family and a high demand religious group and a thorough -tarian religious group like this. You know people will accuse you of quote unquote attacking everything we stand for a direct. I heard from multiple relatives of mine. They will accuse you of hating your entire childhood but I did not hate my entire childhood and they don't hate my entire childhood. Now I also definitely didn't get the worst of Evangelical Ism so as we now know there was a big expose. I think over seven hundred cases as far as I recall last year. Were exposed of child sexual abuse and cover ups in the Southern Baptist Convention. You know that didn't happen to me I. I didn't get the worst kind of corporal punishment. The worst guy was being spanked with a wooden spoon. But corporal punishment is highly emphasized and Evangelical Communities Spare the Rod and spoil the child and all that and any fundamentalist group they create these kind of parallel institutions and structures this whole parallel society alongside mainstream American society. So they look at outsiders as quote unquote the world. That's the phrase that they use. The world is scary. You're supposed to kind of go into it. Sometimes and convert people but most of our social life was people we knew through church and Christian school and so I was isolated that way and then they also build up kind of a whole system of as I said parallel institutions and even publishing houses books a Christian music industry this sort of stuff to reinforce a set of alternative facts if you will and to kind of expose and highlight that a couple years ago I coined the Hashtag Christian facts to look at the kinds of alternative facts that children raised in. This environment are indoctrinated with you. Know things like the Loch ness monster might be real. And that's more proof that humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time you know. There's a lot of really really really wild stuff. Some of it has much more well. Maybe just differently problematic implications and that I mean once you start to get into things like purity culture and what I like to call fake sex. Ed they tell you things like you know. Condoms can't stop the AIDS virus. Abortion causes breast cancer and lots of other stuff that's just completely made up

The property was once home to a church and later the bow skin. Cemetery legend has it that the church was destroyed when it suddenly caught fire during service the fire not only destroyed the building but took the lives of the entire congregation. It's sad that the fire was a direct result of a curse legend. Has it that a powerful magician once resided in the area one who had mastered astor the adver melon and was also a practitioner of necker mazzi one night the magician addition had achieved what had been believed impossible and had managed to reanimate the corpses of the bowl skins cemetery and though his intentions for doing so remain unknown the magicians effort's worth warranted or at least interrupted erupted by the church's minister thomas houston while the minister was partaking being in the grim task of reburying still writhing corpses the magician put a curse on the minister and his church now whether or not any part of that legend as any grain of truth to it the bowl skin in graveyard is still a part of the property and for crawley. It was another aspect of the property which made it so perfect for his undertakings. It's also took place during those years. Where's that the property was under his ownership. In eighteen ninety nine cruelly barricaded himself self in the bowl skin house and began preparations for the ritual the ritual itself required weeks of fasting fasting and intensive meditation and after those weeks of preparation were completed it was time to move on to the strenuous louis six month long ritual a ritual which required hours of uninterrupted practice exc seven days a week for six straight months it required an amount of dedication that few few were able to commit to it entailed a complete lifestyle change full of restriction and abstinence all things which wouldn't seem at all up cruelest alley however these these were indeed sacrifices that he was willing to make s cruelly was intent on contacting his guardian spirit in gaining access to the powers that provided the first phase of the ritual went as planned and according according to croly he was able to make contact with the higher being and was given instructions on which demonic entities he he was to summon and bind. It was the second phase of the ritual that proved to be troublesome. The forces summit proved to be stronger than even croly had anticipated according to his own accounts.

Even though outside it was a warm and sunny late this summer day strange voices were heard an odd shadowy figures were seen flitting about in the cemetery so these things didn't seem to get past locals either many reported darkness a seemed to come over the area in others reported seeing strange and other worldly looking beasts prowling at night as the rumor mer spread many became.

"These phases can take between six to eighteen months to complete the first phase of the ritual was to make contact with one's guardian angel or spirit guide. Many practitioners including croly believe that one could construct in summon any idealized entity of your choice now. If the first part of the ritual is carried out properly the angel or desired entity would communicate with a practitioner it would offer guidance and instruct them on how to fully manifest this higher source of spiritual power it was then instruct the practitioner on how to accomplish accomplish the second phase of the ritual instructing them on which demons needed to be called forth and bound it was this second phase of the ritual. That was the most dangerous chris if the instructions were not strictly followed in their entirety or of the practitioner was weaken can intention or spirit the dark forces summoned could take possession of them driving the person to madness and even death if these entities were not properly bound. There's the added risk of opening being a portal or other worldly gateway which can unleash a multitude of entities and enter dimensional beings into into the area in fact cursing the land. If the would be able to move onto the third and final stage in this final phase the the ritual their guardian spirit would manifest in them granting them higher in more powerful source of spiritual or magical power afterwards the third book of labral mellon could be opened and unutilized this book contains spells and associated signals which allow the practitioner to access in hidden magical knowledge such as how to perform shape shifting negra nancy divination and even and how to use the dream state to control and alter the future there are two known own translations of the original labral mellon the german translation from the sixteen hundreds and the french translation insolation which was first published in the eighteen hundreds both versions differ slightly.

Jason let's get back to your pterodactyls citing and tell us what happened. So yes, Georgia's assets venue ninety two summer route fishing in this creek, and we're getting ready to head back in my friends, Ernie gone. And I hear this this call of something I think my head out from beyond the tree line. And I see it. I think is the largest blue Heron ever seen in my life thing wingspan between eight to ten feet and flu like like a Heron again, we're well south Dallas for cattles, we egrets herons. So it wasn't then communist seeing it just like it. But as it got literally five feet in front of me and it pass right in front of me. The tip is no no more than five feet from me. I was there were no feathers on this creature. And where I thought had been if you've ever seen a Herron flying. You know, they stick their legs out immediately behind them in its legs was actually a tale. That was a long stiff tail that came to Flanders the end sort of diamond shape, and it just went soaring on I got a chance to see much clearer for a longer period of time as it as it was leaving before banks away. Again, I was able to see it sort of in almost like a top profiles. Banks, right and. I was shot to say the least. This in. Of course, I'm saying, what did I just see my friend comes back, of course. Right after the thing disappears. He's like what's wrong? Like did. You see that is what the pterodactyl, and he laughs and says your out of your mind and just walks away. And it was at the moment. It's sort of realized knows ever gonna believe me. I didn't believe me at first I thought it was a Heron just a really big one. But until I got five people in the same realized what it was and like all big twelve year olds you, I had a giant and book dinosaurs. I started flipping through it trying to find the janitor Dak than it was of course. Yeah. I was familiar with the transit on the one that everyone loves it. So the Flintstones on everything that has been in a crest, but didn't have a tail and what I saw had. No, you know, it had a beaked like face, but it wasn't a be it didn't have a crest and had a long flange tail and so slipping through and I found the ram Frank, Lloyd. Family of a of pterodactyls, and of course, which means to speak and basically imagine a lizard with bat like wings and sharp teeth. But in the top of the tip of its snout has hasn't. It has an extra tooth coming out of it to give it sort of the speakers look, and at the end of the tail has a diamond shaped flange and IRAs. Exactly what I saw. But like, I said, I know one believes me, and I just wouldn't have believed me. So I kind of kept us myself for the next twenty years if it was a pterodactyl a dinosaur. What the heck is going on here. Well, that's exactly what I said. I mean to be honest. I it wasn't like I was unfamiliar with again, I've been a fan for years and years Loch Ness, monster loved it. Locally in Bombay loved it. But those were always out in the middle of some exotic location. This not Dallas, Texas. And so that's really what a lot of my life has been trying to find out. How could this things things have have have been around? And where are they hiding? How are they living over the years and working to find a lot of people have seen pterodactyls even here in the in the United States North is Oklahoma? Some people have seen the larger ones flying as far north as Alaska, but they seem to be fairly common around the Rio Grande valley. We get a lot of reports out of there. Now, the question becomes how are they still alive? And that's sort of where I go back to what the book is about is any any model any scientific bottle has to be able to make predictions, right? And there's predictions has to be testable. Well, if you if the biblical model, regardless of your youngest creationist or a guy voluminous. There were however you want to interpret the scriptures. The common theme is there isn't that wiped out almost all life on the planet and anything that survived came through it. It wasn't sixty five million years ago. It was much more recent than that how recent is up for debate. But that the dinosaurs. And we call Pleistocene animals, and all these other things existed much more recently than what we would commonly believe. Now, see I think the Loch Ness monster is a please ius sore. What are those fin dinosaurs? Yes, that is that is definitely one possibility. I'm actually fifty fifty on that one. But that's a different kettle of fish what? Specifically, the do the marine animals could have survived very easily. Yeah. Pretty cataclysmic event like a flood. But when you have these vertebrates, again, some of them would have adapted to life in a in a new environment. Similar remain the same. But the fact is they would have stayed the populations that would have been very very small maybe even hundred because it would have been inherently dangerous or aliens people would have stayed isolated in humans moved into populations. They would've wiped them out. Because you would have seen very very strange and anything that seems weird to us. We like to destroy that's just how humans role, and we see a lot of in in really when you go back to the stories of the nights tales. In fact, one thing they started doing is an artist and a love of our of our history. I noticed that there was a definitive point where when we were with a dragon tail that flange diamond shaped hill actually emerges in artwork. And because you go back to that balloons. They had dragons they have plans tells the Egyptians that they didn't have flange tails, but in Europe, the women and originally doesn't have a flange tail but around the fourteenth and fifteenth century that flange tail evolved or appears just out of nowhere and artwork in what I found was there a records LA small dragon being killed in again. Vessel late fourteenth century and stuff in in brought to Paris where is on display for years. Now, they didn't have all the chemicals we have to preserve the by. So so the que they would build a gas of it or a an approximation of it out of other animals, and they put that on display later. It's that secondary creation that was on display and was drawn by several artists later in that century, actually go and find them online, but it's a very decayed skeleton, and it's clearly a gaff. But what's interesting is what it shows in the timing. It has I believe it was a they believe it's the stove and ermine which is the type of weasel, but they put a tooth at the very tip of its snout to two to the three surviving etchings show that has a set of wings, but they put three claws on it. And it only has one set of legs and has a long long tail and it's. At that time that the flange starts to merge in dragon artwork. And of course, that must've your mediaeval B-Series gave the dragons were very rare at that time. So it's led me to conclude that what happened was that Iran. Frank. Species survived, and it least existed in Europe for a while was probably either wiped out whereas becomes very very endangered. But during that period one was killed and put on display and artists were able to actually see it instead of being people of. Them being descriptions of these creatures being related to an artist later it made his didn't understand how people saw they don't understand how to pull out the necessary information. So they ended up drawing something that looks very weird to us. Right. He said, well like Sakakah tricks is described as having the head of a chicken and the body of the chicken, but the tail and legs of a dragon. So when these ours withdraw, that's exactly how they would draw. It it looks very very bizarre in until you realize that when the west twenty years or so, well, we discovered this many theropods or the to the the bipedal dinosaurs. Like, a velociraptor a T Rex may have had feathers. In fact, some very had that for proto on him. Well, if you're seven peasants living in you know, Becca stand in the middle ages. And the only thing you have is a chicken, you know, you don't know what a dinosaur. What these things are. And you see something like that. What you describe it as well. It looks like a chicken, but a dragging also. And so a lot of artwork depicts. What seems to be very fan, particularly ancient artwork that the modern ones where we've we've we've turned them into fantasy, but they destroy their artist. Trying to recant recreate what someone has told them in a way that only language they had they had available to them. And. As I started realizing that I can you can serve tracks him throughout history. They show up again. And again, and again, but again, the only reason they could do that and remains so relatively unchanged from how we see them in the fossil record is if they died very very recently, which matches the biblical story. And that would be an amazing story. Now, let's talk about the UFO's in the bible as well. What have you discovered there? Well, the interesting thing is people talk about you in the bible and the answer to that is. Well, yes, and no the. Lame assumption that people make about angelic beings because it's a very complicated topic is that they seem to assume they have supernatural powers like superman and can fly the wings. I can tell where they can do all these fancy stuff we see movies. But when you look at the scriptures hers specifically, yes there are to be higher orders of angels. They can't do that. Although I would argue most of those cases the person who's talking seems to be in a trance-like state. Right. So it's a vision that this is going to be a physical event. That's all these fancy powers. It's mortgage. They're being gathering show things. But when we get you see angels in the natural form like when Elijah C opens the ask God to open the eyes of Elisha, his his compatriot. He describes seeing angels in chariots himself is is is taken a fiery whirlwind talks about chariots. It does appear that angel Ingela quarters are made of a material. These are that we think of angels is being almost a psychic entity. Right non-compulsory, non material in any form. But it doesn't seem to be true. They seem to be very much us in a lot of respects just different. And it would make sense that since we're tool users. We have vehicles that we can travel in that they would do the same. A lot of UFO saying seemed to be or or you know, you have your orbs which seems to be just the energy for these are these are basically to rip off Star Trek themes appear energy. So we would see them as orbs we'd see them probably as more mathematical shapes, then something we would see the living creature per se..

"loch ness" Discussed on This American Life

"A two known is seen the mid or heard the mid. While the walls all over the world that we learned about for today's program. This next one is the most mysterious while the may or may not even exist. Bryan reboot into it. I read about this possible wall in a blog post. It's a travel blog by no straying guy. And he tells the story of a bizarre tour he took in North Korea. The post is titled North Korea's Loch Ness, monster the concrete wall for decades. The North Korean government has complained about the huge concrete wall that divides north and South Korea a wall it claims that South Korea put up at the urging of the United States as a permanent barrier to reunification. A while that's been a source of anger for the North Koreans for years for them. It's a symbol of the diplomacy and bad will of South Korea. One peculiar thing about this wall, though, North Korea says it can only be seen from the northern side. But you can't see it from the south. It also doesn't show up on Google earth or satellite images. But in North Korea. There's a place where tourists can go. See it. That's where the blogger WAM, according to the post, he arrived at a small bunker. Where North Korean Colonel delivers a whole lecture about the concrete wall. He stands there in uniform with a pointer, stick there's a photo of this on the blog with a big mural behind him of the wall snaking along the border, though. Curiously it's not a photograph of the wall. It's a painting. The Colonel runs the walls dimensions, which are listed on the mural as well as geometric diagrams demonstrating, the ingenious engineering that makes it only visible from the north. It's built into a hill. So from the south it just looks like Greenland, it's invisible which the Colonel explains allow South Korea and the United States to claim that there isn't a wall between north and South Korea. Which is exactly what those countries say. And then the kernel invites the tour group outside to see themselves, the bloggers handed a pair of binoculars, the bug A writes that he half expects her to be a stencil of a wall taped on the lenses when he looked through there isn't. But as he stares out from the survey shin deck into the DMZ or demilitarize zone. The four kilometer wide stretch of land that buffers North Korea from south. He does see something. He includes a photo. He took of it. Could this be with the North Koreans were talking about? He writes, Leinen and see what you make that. I did lean in. And honestly, I could not tell what the hell was going on in this photo. It's super blurry taken from Colombia's away on a hazy looking day. There are shrubs and hills in the DMZ and yes, some type of brownish structure on top of the hills. But it's really hard to make out. It is like one of those Loch Ness photos. This blog posts confused me. Was there a wall between north and South Korea or not the news media seemed unequivocal on this question? The reports I read said the walls, not real one headline from Reuters North Korea has south to tear down imaginary wall, the blogger didn't want to be interviewed. So I ended up on the phone instead with a tour guide named Simon cockerel who runs one of the most popular tour companies or takes people into North Korea says he's been in North Korea more than one hundred sixty times. So I've been even nearly to the concrete wall at self. You've been nearly to the concrete wall it self. Yes. That's right. So it is it is it is a wall. It is a thing. It exists. You're talking about as if it exists it, in some way entirely does exist. Simon says he's done that whole tore the stray Lian blogger did how many times have you seen this wall? I would have to guess maybe forty or fifty times. Did you ever any of those viewings question? Whether what you were looking at a wall. I honestly don't think did. I mean, it's not a hologram. I mean, that's probably a semantic case to be made that it's not hoebel because on the southern side of it. It's a hill on the northern side of it. It's a wool. So it has the characteristics of a wool if you'll looking at it from the north which after release the only side from which you can see it. What are the characteristics of a wall as you see them?.

Did if the classic creatures of legend and hearsay Bill, the Loch Ness monster, for example, or sasquatch are two can't be for your tastes. Perhaps your interest would be piqued by the group slaying. A giant snake with an elephants. Head said to hang out in caves of northwestern, South Africa, or the yeah, we basically the big foot of the astray, Ian outback or the Pingree a giant slot like Abe reportedly lurking in the Amazon rainforest on the border between Brazil and Bolivia if you're game to dive into the waters of cryptos zoology, you'll be there awhile because they are fathomless science, however will rarely dive in there with you. But it has on occasion made an exception for the yeti. If you were to ask, hey, are the yeti just a bunch of bears genetics would say, yes, the yeti or the great white abominable. Snowman of the Himalayas is one of the world's most beloved cryptos. It's a major figure in the folklore. Nepal and hikers are constantly reporting to have seen a giant white ape like creature stocking around the mountains. Some even claimed to have brought home a piece of one of these beasts a tuft of hair Abon, some skin a tooth or some abominable Deng. These yeti souvenirs have made their way into museums and private collections over the years. And now nine of them formed the basis for a study investigating the reality behind the folktales. The study published in the proceedings of the Royal Society b finds that of the alleged yeti bits, genetically sequenced by the international team of researchers all reveal themselves to be a very commonplace origin, eight bears and a dog. There was diversity in the species of bears. One Asian black bear was represented one Himalayan Brown bear and six to betton Brown bears. Other researchers suggest that similar genetic studies should be able to help unravel other cryptos legends where previous genetic studies of possible. Cryptos looked only at mitochondrial DNA this research team gave. Cave, bones, and wads of hair. The full works applied PCR amplification Maddock Andrea sequencing by the Conrail genome assembly and Filo genyk analysis. According to the researchers this makes the most rigorous analysis of anomalous or mythical Hamad like creatures today. Eight the team also sequenced mitochondrial DNA of Twenty-three Asian bears. And compared them with bears around the world. They found the Tabet and Brown bear to be more closely related to American bears than they are to their neighbors, the Himalayan bear. In fact, the two species probably split along two separate evolutionary lineages around six hundred and fifty thousand years ago during a major ice age. And just in case you're wondering who compiled the bare parts that the team used their research. They were assembled by eight 2016 animal planet team for a special titled yeti or not which explored the myths behind the monster.
