A Demon-Haunted World After All, Part 2

Twenty-five years after the release of Carl Sagan's landmark skeptic manifesto The Demon-Haunted World, it seems that this world is indeed more and more haunted by demons. But what are demons? Are they grotesque chimeras that Medieval artists borrowed from Ancient Babylon or are they something more subtle, elusive and real?

And was Sagan in fact the unwitting conduit for the worldwide demonic infestation?

The success of Sagan's book in certain quarters kickstarted a new debunking movement, largely spearheaded by CSICOP (pronounced "psyche-cop" or "Thought Police") and the James Randi Educational Foundation. The movement was very well-financed, well-publicized and well-stocked with luminaries and celebrities.

The JREF held annual meetings in Las Vegas and attracted a who's-who of Scientismistic superstars like Bill Nye, Michael Shermer, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Dawkins, Elizabeth Loftus, Chris Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, Adam Savage, Ray Hyman, Bill Nye, and (convicted felon) Brian Dunning.

The skeptical movement is all but moribund now, but it was extremely effective in helping tear down religion in America (established or otherwise) and instilling a mindless worship of "science" among people who have no idea how science is done or even what the term actually means.

Unfortunately, all these people who are so bloody certain how you should be living your life aren't so efficient at running their own...  

Let's start with Randi himself. This letter showed up on Google Groups some years ago by one "Philip Rubino." First let me be clear, I can't substantiate any of the claims of fact this person is making. But it's worth at least reading an excerpt to get some historical context on this very complex case:

Dear Sir,  
it may be interesting for you to know that James (The Amazing) Randi has for years been accused of sexually molesting underaged boys. There exists a tape recording 
(which Randi himself made) where you can clearly hear Randi on the telephone asking young boys for (sex).  
In order to distort the truth, Randi has fabricated the most ridiculous lie, that the police and the phone company had asked him to make the tape. He also claims that a postal inspector testified in court that the police had asked him to make the tape. That is another lie which is easy to check 
simply by reading the transcripts from the Washington, DC court where a jury found James Randi guilty of being a malicious liar. This is a miserable and ludicrous attempt to explain this very damning tape recording. Randi's concocted story can easily be proven a lie by checking with the police department and the phone company that supposedly asked him to make the tape.
The issue of these so-called "sex tapes" was actually raised in this 1993 court case:
A federal jury ruled yesterday that "The Amazing Randi," a magician, defamed a Finksburg scientist by calling him a child molester but the panel did not award any monetary damages.
The jury in U.S. District Court in Baltimore found that Eldon Byrd, 53, the scientist, suffered humiliation, mental anguish, suffering and damage to his reputation because of the false statements. But the panel found that he was not entitled to any monetary damages after hearing testimony that he had sexually molested -- and later married -- his sister-in-law.
Jurors deliberated over three days before they reached a verdict in the case that featured a plaintiff who dabbles in the supernatural, a defendant who debunks paranormal claims, and testimony on the mud-slinging battle between them that prompted the suit.
James Randi later made the following claims in the April 1999 edition of his Position Statement: 
"When...Eldon Byrd sued me in Baltimore a few years ago, his lawyer brought up the famous tape recording as evidence against my character. My own lawyer, at my insistence, asked that the entire tape be played for the courtroom and jury, so that the true nature of the record would be understood, instead of being misrepresented as it usually was." 
You can download the recordings as a zip file at this link and decide for yourself.

Devil Mayhem 666- there's a prophetic handle

Some years ago, another Google Groups document arose, with what the poster claimed were pertinent excerpts from the trial in question. Again, the usual disclaimers as to the veracity of this:
We now have a portion of the transcript of the Eldon Byrd vs. James Randi et al trial, dated May 26th, 1993. From a reading of this transcript it is abundantly clear that Randi's lawyer, named Diane Margaret Link, made every effort to persuade Judge Marvin J. Garbis not to let the jury hear the tape, which of course is the same so-called Blackmail Tape that we have referred to in "Smear" many times in the past. 
Here, verbatim, is part of that excerpt from the official record of that trial: 
MS. LANK: May I respectfully ask how the tape is relevant, your Honor? What defamatory statements alleged by Mr. Byrd are related to that tape? 
THE COURT: Fortunately, I don't have to persuade you that I'm right. I have to ultimately persuade the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit that I am properly exercising my discretion in this case, which I am doing. I have listened to the tape. I have carefully and agonizingly reflected on this. 
It is possible, it is possible that your client told this Court, this jury, and the New York Skeptics a bald face lie. It is possible. The jury is going to have to evaluate that. I don't know how they can evaluate that if they don't hear this and determine which version is true. If he has said a falsity about this tape and this is the tape he accused Mr. Byrd of manipulating, then I think it is relevant to this case, to his credibility and to the issues in this case with regard to whether or not he knew that other statements were false. 
The poster went on to comment:

So, according to James Randi, he was receiving obscene phone calls from teenagers in the area, and contacted the local authorities, and under the direction of the police chief (of Rumson, NJ- CK), he "went along" with the phone callers, in order to entrap them, and actual arrests were made... 
No phone company or Police force in the 50 US States has the authority to have anyone seduce an under aged boy over the phone... Randi said he had to keep the kid on the line so he could get the phone traced BUT the kid gives Randi his number and RANDI CALLS HIM BACK !!!! Randi would have no need for calling back if he'd already got the information the phone company wanted. There were no arrests for Obscene Phone Calls...
So if Randi was indeed lying and continued to lie for years and years about the nature of these recordings, how is he any different than the frauds he was exposing? Answer: he isn't, not one single bit. He's exactly the same, if not worse.

But who was this 'Eldon Byrd'? 

It's a very important question to answer, for it shows the kinds of waters Randi was swimming in, and how in many ways those same waters are now flooding the entire world. 

This excerpt from an article on Aaron Alexis, the gunman in the 2103 Washington Navy Yard shooting:

According to an FBI official after the shooting, Alexis was under the "belief that he was being controlled or influenced by extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves." 
Technology built around the Radio Frequency Hearing effect does exist, for example, Air Force patent # 6470214 patented in December 1996, allows sounds and voices to be heard ″When the expansion and contraction take place in the head of an animal, the acoustic signal is passed by conduction to the inner ear where it is further processed as if it were an acoustic signal from the outer ear.″  
Eldon Byrd of the US Naval Surface Weapons Centre who controlled the US Non Lethal Weapons programme in the early 80s, confirms that ELF and electromagnetic devices are feasible – but it appears that yet again, all details are contained within the secure 'black' world of hidden research projects. 

Maybe some of those devices are operational now. Maybe they're being mobilized on a massive, worldwide scale, along with a whole host of other invisible mind-plagues. 

Maybe too this is a good time then to bring up one-time RAF radar specialist...

...Sir Arthur C. Clarke:

The Independent, Saturday 07 July 2012  
The News of the World spiked an exclusive story exposing the science fiction writer Arthur C Clarke as a paedophile, according to a new book about life inside the newspaper whose closure was announced a year ago today.
In Hack, an account of his nerve-shredding days as a reporter on the News of the World and then the Sunday Mirror, Graham Johnson claims that although the NOTW prided itself on outing pederasts, editors made an exception for Mr Clarke because he was a friend of Rupert Murdoch.
Tipped off about the story, the Sunday Mirror sent Mr Johnson to Colombo, where he extracted an confession from the author that he paid boys for sex. "I have never had the slightest interest in children – boys or girls. They should be treated in the same way. But once they have reached the age of puberty, then it is OK," Mr Clarke was quoted as saying in the Sunday Mirror. 
"If the kids enjoy it and don't mind it doesn't do any harm … there is a hysteria about the whole thing in the West."
Speaking to The Independent yesterday, Mr Johnson said: "Roger [Insall] said that because Arthur C Clarke was a mate of Rupert Murdoch, the editor wasn't having any of it and despite Roger getting a lot of evidence that Clarke was a paedophile they wouldn't publish it."
I seriously doubt there were a parade of boys willing to service an old geezer like Clarke without remuneration, or worse, some kind of coercion. Which is kind of the crux of the matter, as we see here:

CANTERBURY, England (RNS) Richard Dawkins, one of the world’s best-known and outspoken atheists, has provoked outrage among child protection agencies and experts after suggesting that recent child abuse scandals have been overblown.
In an interview in The Times magazine on Saturday (Sept. 7), Dawkins, 72, he said he was unable to condemn what he called “the mild pedophilia” he experienced at an English school when he was a child in the 1950s.
Referring to his early days at a boarding school in Salisbury, he recalled how one of the (unnamed) masters “pulled me on his knee and put his hand inside my shorts.” He said other children in his school peer group had been molested by the same teacher but concluded: “I don’t think he did any of us lasting harm.”
“I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we don’t look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism, I look back a few decades to my childhood and see things like caning, like mild pedophilia, and can’t find it in me to condemn it by the same standards as I or anyone would today,” he said.
He said the most notorious cases of pedophilia involve rape and even murder and should not be bracketed with what he called “just mild touching up.”
Anyone sensing a pattern here? No? 

How about this recent story of a Scientismistic Superstar? 

'MythBusters' Adam Savage accused of sexual abuse by sister
Sara M Moniuszko, USA TODAY 
“Beginning in or about 1976 and continuing until approximately 1979, Adam Savage, would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse,” says her lawsuit, filed in Westchester Supreme Court. 
The suit says Savage, who was between nine and 12 years old at the time, would prevent Pacchiana from leaving the bed and anally rape her. 
He allegedly nicknamed himself the “raping blob” while masking the abuse as a game, according to the complaint.
To be fair, Savage denies the charges and claims his sister is mentally ill. And since I'm not Woke, I actually believe in the presumption of innocence. 

But why do we see so much of this kind of thing from such a small group? And what about the other douche on MythBusters?

As far as I know, he's still just a raging douche.


One of the big projects that the Skeptic movement was very, very heavily invested in was the False Memory Syndrome Foundation. The group claimed to be crusading against a wave of dubious abuse accusations raised during therapy-- particularly hypnotherapy-- sessions. But a look at the founders of this group tells a bit of a different story.
Peter Freyd: (Co-founder) Accused of childhood sexual abuse by his daughter Jennifer, who is a professor of psychology at the University of Oregon. Jennifer: "During my childhood, my father sometimes discussed his own experiences of being sexually abused as an 11 year-old boy, and called himself a 'kept boy'" Peter Freyd graduated to male prostitution as an adolescent.
Ralph Underwager: (Co-founder) Forced to resign from the FMSF, which he helped found a year before, because of a remark in an interview which appeared in Paidika, an Amsterdam journal for pedophiles. He said that it was "God's Will" when adults engage in sex with children. Told a group of British reporters in 1994 that "scientific evidence" proved 60% of all women molested as children believed the experience was "good for them."

CSICOP's "human sexuality" bureau was run by an interesting guy as well:
Vern Bullough--Dean of Natural and Social Science at State University, New York, who is a CSICOP Board member. Vern Bullough is also listed as a board member of Paidika, the Dutch paedophile magazine.
Given that there actually are a large number of very well-known and very widely-used drugs that can actually very easily erase the memory quite efficiently if administered by an abuser to a victim -- from Scopolamine to Rohypnol to benzodiazepenes to ether to simple alcohol -- one really has to wonder why the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, ostensibly an advocacy group for people falsely accused of abuse, is packed to the rafters with mind control experts.

Here's a small sampling:

Martin Orne:  Member of Scientific Advisory Board of the FMSF, has been at the center of the creation of a Manchurian candidate, has worked with Navy Intelligence, Air Force Intelligence, the Human Ecology Foundation (a major CIA funding front for MKULTRA), and almost certainly also the NSA and Army Intelligence
Michael Persinger: Clinical neurophysicist and professor of neuroscience, whose work over the years has focused on the effects of electromagnetic fields upon biological organisms and human behavior.
Harold Lief: Former major in the Army medical corps. Close colleague of the co-FMSF board member Dr. Martin Orne and consulted with him on several studies in hypnotic programming and behavioral modification experiments at the University of Pennsylvania.
This did not arise in a vacuum
Louis Jolyon West: CIA and military contractor, and an expert on multiple personality and other things... history includes controversial LSD experiments for the Central Intelligence Agency and even more controversial plans to construct secret installations for the “study” and modification — by electric shock, chemical castration and other means — of the behavior of citizens, particularly minorities.
Margaret T. Singer: She began to study brainwashing in the 1950s at Walter Reed Institute of Research in Washington, D. C., where she interviewed U.S. soldiers who had been taken prisoner during the Korean War. She came to Berkeley in 1958 and found herself in a prime spot to study the cult scene of the 1960s and 1970s.
Elizabeth Loftus: (In) November 1995 two separate ethics complaints had been filled with the APA against Loftus. Jennifer Hoult and Lynn Crook had recovered memories of severe childhood sexual abuse, found corroborating evidence, sued their fathers, and won. Hoult's father, who was defended by Loftus, appealed the case as far as possible, losing each time. Jennifer was awarded $500,000 in damages... Jennifer's father became an active member of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation after the trial.
Press darling Loftus has also testified at the trials of convicted murderers like Ted Bundy and the Hillside Strangler, as well as serial molester Father Paul Shanley.

On their behalf.

Bill Nye the Not-Actually a Science Guy's personal peccadilloes seem quite mild in context, but he also aired this category-1000 cringe-tornado straight from the social engineering desk a couple years back. Just don't go thinking Nye is normal.


So all that might be old news to some of you, but to me it's less about old news and more about reverse-engineering the current clusterfuck going on out there.

You can't really understand how we got here unless you can retrace the bread-crumb trail and realize exactly where we are.  Because I probably don't have to tell you that the same agendas and agencies are playing out now, only on a macrocosmic scale. Even a lot of the same players are involved. It's all just bars and measures of the same grand symphony.

If you've been reading this blog for a while you know I don't believe MKULTRA and the rest were ever actually based in real science. Certainly a lot of real scientists who examined Ewen Cameron's work, for instance, proclaimed it contained absolutely no scientific value whatsoever.  

I think the real goal was to create empty, soulless vessels-- what some call 'NPCs' -- to be possessed by demonic spirits. I don't mean silly Pazuzu-type creatures or whatever; I mean the kind of raw, reptilian-brain demonic energies that blanket a society just before it succumbs to atrocity on a massive scale. 

And it seems to be very important to start this process when the target subject is young.
