Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

After my first encounter with "Satanic Nephilim hybrids", I didn't think I'd be running into any more fusions of alien abduction lore and Satanic ritual abuse (SRA) narratives. So far as I know, alien abductees rarely recover memories of human abuse under hypnosis (David Icke's Reptilian/Illuminati survivors would be an exception), and ritual abuse advocates...

Pimp My Tomb

I immediately recognized the Canadian filmmaker, Simcha Jacobovici, who (alongside James Cameron) is touting the 27-year-old discovery of tombs bearing the names of Jesus and members of his family, including a son. I taped Jacobovici's 1999 documentary Quest for the Lost Tribes off CBC when it originally aired, intending to watch it in more depth... Continue Reading →

Holy Blood, Holy Crap: The Da Vinci Code Lawsuit and Michael Baigent’s The Jesus Papers
