The Satanic Panic: Introduction
The Satanic Panic Reconsidered

Setting the scene, background historical information, chronology, and the psycho-social aspects that influenced a generation. This video covers 4 illustrative cases before going into the period from roughly 1968 to 1982.

The cases of import: Jimmy Savile, Jerry Sandusky, Jeffrey Epstein, and Marc Dutroux. These cases are instructive because they inform upon how we know that large-scale cover ups of heinous evil can take place over decades. 3 of the 4 are or were high profile figures praised by the mainstream media for years before they were caught in their acts of evil. These monsters also used charitable donations, charities, volunteer work, foundations, or institutions as cover for their nefarious deeds.

These four cases alone utterly undermine the claims of debunkers and skeptics who try to claim things of such a nature and on such a scale cannot take place. It can, it has, and it does (sadly) take place.

The Mismeasure of Man and the curious case of Dr. Stephen Jay Gould.
#StephenJayGould
#TheMismeasureofMan
#FraudinthenameofScience

Many years ago the late Dr. Stephen Jay Gould was kind of a hero of mine. I looked up to him and the work that he did. When at university, I took courses in which his books and other writings were assigned. Only many years later was I to find out what a few researchers had been slowly putting together: Gould manipulated data to get desired results.

Presumably operating with "pure" motives, Gould set out to show that Morton had manipulated his cranial measurements to bolster his "racist" claims. Nevermind that Gould never proved Morton ever even made any such claims.
Gould's book "The Mismeasure of Man" was originally published in 1981 and then came out with an updated and revised version in 1996 that ignored all critiques and criticisms. Yet the book was proclaimed by political leftists as the definitive rejection of Richard Hernstein and Charles Murray's "The Bell Curve".

The Lost Surreal of Remedios Varo

The art and life of Spanish-Mexican Surrealist (or para-Surrealist) painter Remedios Varo (1908-1963).

Varo's life was, unfortunately, cut down far too early. At the mere age of 54, this fantastic painter of surrealism and magic realism produced some of the most beautiful, dreamlike, fantastical, and eerie works that I have ever seen.

This video will be accompanied by an article that goes much more in-depth on the life and works of Varo, which I will link below.

Natural Theology: A Short Introduction

In this episode, I trace the origins of natural theology and place it within two contexts - that of the ancient Greeks and that of the Christian traditions. Natural theology is one of several routes used to prove the existence of God. It is important to note, however, the drastic difference between the God of the Philosophers, the God of the Deists, and the Christian creator God (ex nihilo).

I also take the opportunity to respond to weak attacks on classical liberalism and libertarianism by demonstrating that the central axiom or principle of libertarianism (the non-aggression principle) is easily defensible and supportable on grounds drawn from natural theology to natural law.

This is only a very short excursion into these subjects, but I believe the paths mentioned here are ripe for further research and examination.

"The Art of War" by Machiavelli discussed. A few weeks ago I performed a complete reading of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" and that inspired me to turn to Machiavelli's little-known work of the same name.

This episode offers a sort of primer or short overview of Machiavelli's position that he sets out in both "The Prince" and "The Art of War". I end the episode with a quick review of the 27 general rules of war that can be found in chapter 7 of Machiavelli's Art of War drawn from a short review article at War on the Rocks.

Science and the Replication Crisis

This discussion covers a special subset of problems within the history of ideas and history of science centering upon the reproducibility of scientific studies.

Many headlines have carried the stories far and wide relating to a so-called crisis in science. In this episode, I take a look at the scientific method, the idea of parsimony or Occam's Razor, Kuhn's concept of paradigms, and the studies and counter-studies related to the crisis.

A critique and analysis of Data and Society's report titled, "Media Manipulation and Disinformation Online". This is the second entry in a four part series investigating the far leftwing "progressive" establishment's plan to orchestrate map out their enemies online for future takedown measures.

I began by analyzing the New York Time's article on the Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) and follow that up with this co-authored entry from Marwick and Lewis. The 3rd entry will cover Lewis' Data and Society report on the Alternative Influence Network (AIN) and will be complete with the 4th episode covering The Atlantic Council's report "Whose Truth?"

Taken as a whole, these articles and reports put together an intelligence gathering process by the elite leftist establishment intended to be part of a plan to get more users of social media (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) shadowbanned, outright banned, unpersoned from the web, stalked by dangerous leftist mobs, and to inform content filtering devices and software in order to block content the political left deems objectionable.

The Countess of Blood (Elizabeth Bathory).

By now most people have heard something about Elizabeth Bathory. At minimum most know that there was some queen, princess, or noblewoman who bathed in the blood of her victims, drank blood, or covered her skin in blood in order to maintain the look of youth.

But what is the truth about the Blood Countess? Did she find the fountain of youth in the blood of young victims? Was she even a mass murderer as she stands accused? What does history say? What are the facts?

In this episode, I offer both aspects but come down decidedly on the side that says Bathory was a serial killer who, along with her massively murderous and psychopathic husband (the Black Knight), tortured her victims for many years prior to turning to outright murder.

In this video I present both the original history that Bathory murdered anywhere from 35 to over 600 victims and I present elements of the revisionist perspective that Elizabeth was a healer who never killed anyone. The second perspective has far too much to overcome according to my research. However, self-professed "vampyres" often promote the revisionist perspective.

Castle Houska or Hrad Houska is said to have been built in order to cover a pit or hole which leads into Hell itself.

Terence McKenna famously referred to the MS 408 (The Voynich Manuscript) as an elegant enigma. Others call it the world's most mysterious manuscript. Both statements are true.

A short history of the Gigas Codex, which is sometimes also referred to as "The Devil's Bible".

With the name literally meaning giant book, the codex is surrounded by mystery and legend. Science has combined with history to offer a number of answers to age old questions regarding this book.

One legend suggests the book was composed by a condemned monk in a single night as he entered into a compact with the Devil himself. In exchange for his freedom, the monk had promised his monastery to create a great work to honor the monastery. However, when he realized he would be unable to complete the task, instead of turning to God in prayer, he is said to have turned to the Prince of Darkness instead. Promising his soul in exchange for his freedom, the massive tome was completed.

The real history actually confirms some aspects of the story. For example, graphalogical hand-writing analysis shows that the text was indeed composed by a single hand but must have taken about 25 to 30 years to complete. The book is typical of works of its kind during the time, but has a few elements which set it apart such as exorcism procedures which name specific demons, the depiction of a very large image of Satan, and spells related to healing and the like.

This will be the first entry in a month-long October or Halloween series of videos concentrating on the history and science of a number of occult topics.

Are you one of those people who taste the aluminum and ash? Who can almost smell the psychosphere?

If not, you still probably have at least seen or heard of True Detective. Season 1 was, in my view, one of the best single seasons of any show ever. Drawing deeply from the waters of cosmic horror created by H.P. Lovecraft and Robert Chambers. Lovecraft has influenced Steven King, John Carpenter, and countless other horror authors and film directors. The creator of True Detective, Nic Pizallotto, has very clearly drawn upon Lovecraftian concepts. Among those concepts is that of the psychosphere.

Another, tangentially related, concept is that of the noosphere which emanated from Teilhard de Chardin. Noosphere theorists also postulate the notion of an Omega Point which is very similar to the idea of the Singularity for Artificial Intelligence theorists.

In my productions, I frequently interweave these concepts so it is pertinent for my listeners to understand both.

Allan Bloom famously wrote a book called The Closing of the American Mind in 1987. However, the baseline for this text was set 5 years earlier in an article that he penned for National Review called "Our Listeless Universities". In both the article and the book, Bloom set out to explain the litany of cultural problems that we have been facing since at least the 1980s. Bloom traces these back, correctly I might add, to the universities. Specifically to the terrible ideas that first emanated from German universities which were later taken up by French universities and passed on the rest of the West.

Bloom's work is often considered to have been the point at which the Culture Wars were first announced and identified. Harold Bloom's The Western Canon, Roger Kimball's Tenured Radicals and The Long March, and Dinesh D'Souza's Illiberal Education flesh out many other aspects of the problems we are facing.

There are many topics that we are discouraged from asking.

It is important to contest those who do this boundary policing.

One way to do that is to make sure that everyone understands there is no danger in asking hard questions.

IQ should be considered no more controversial than height bell curve distributions, times in the 100 meter dash, or the time it takes to run a mile. There is not link between one's moral value or dignity or legal equality and IQ (or G).

Ultimately, IQ is just another number among the many ways that we can measure human capacities.
