“The Elephant In The Room That Paranormal Researchers’ Don’t Talk About”

I have been debating on what to write about, with concerns to paranormal research. I finally decided to go with the first story that I looked into when I started. That of course was the Amityville Horror story, and the people who publicized the whole thing, Ed and Lorraine Warren. Ed was born in nineteen twenty-six and he passed away in two thousand and six. His wife Lorraine was born in nineteen twenty-seven, and I believe she is still alive today, though I haven’t heard much about her lately. Ed was once a World War Two veteran, police officer, demonologist, author, painter and lecturer. His wife Lorraine was a clairvoyant and a medium who worked with her husband on paranormal cases.
I would like to say that this article is about how great these two people are, but that is not the case. Instead, I am going to explain how these two people have personally ruined the reputation of most spiritualists’ in the profession. How they have created one hoax after another, and was brought up on litigation charges’ because of schemes’. Most people that I have spoken to in the paranormal research field are vary conscientious, and work with a scientific approach. Their credibility is important to them and when they investigate, they attempt to debunk evidence in order to see if it can be explained. This is not the case though for the Warrens’, (and their nephew Frank Zaffis), of course.
I have recently noticed that the Warren crew, have pretty much infiltrated and taken over the entire Syfy network. I am upset with the name change of the channel too, but this take the cake though. On my page, I share allot of things’ that are posted by Huff Paranormal, but, that is only because their stuff has a good reach on the internet. This allows other material on my pages’ to reach to a broader audience, that is the only reason why I do this with groups such as these. I also get involved with political issues’ concerning the media and how they withhold news from the public. That is another reason why I post allot of things’ that I don’t agree on. Just because they don’t suite my preferences’, doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t share what they post.
Claims’ of the Warrens’ being called on by the church, with concerns pertaining to paranormal cases, that were profound and disturbing. These people and their “extraordinary” careers’ are what we need to bring into question. Over dramatizing situations’, that are serious to people having problems’ within their home. It isn’t bad enough that these people feel that their being haunted, or that their house is haunted, but the Warrens’ wish to plaster their story onto the Hollywood big screen too. Ed Warren would say, “Oh why not, lets get the story out there. Bad Publicity is better than no publicity at all.” Well Ed, lets look at the record shall we? Let us see what actually took place with you and your wife’s career. What your nephew Frank Zaffis is really doing to the paranormal field, and the nonsense that you have really created.
When the Warrens’ were first married, what most people don’t know about them is this, Ed Warren was also a painter. In order for him to get into the door to do any paranormal investigation, when he started out, he would stand outside of a residence and draw sketches’ of the house. Drawing attention from the owners of the house. After a little bit of conversation with the families’, he would eventually ask to see the inside of the residence. Miraculously too, when the Warrens’ were first married, Lorraine wasn’t a medium. As time went on though, while both of them went out to investigate haunted houses, she became one. This in other circles’ would be referred to as a scam. Con artists’ at their best, or worse, it all depends on how you look at it. Ed Warren even made claims’ of living in a haunted house as a child. Out of every story that I have read concerning the Warrens’ though, I have found nothing concerning this house. You would think that after years’ of living in such a house, a person would wish to return to it in order to investigate.
People who claim to be religious, should also know what most religious people believe, when it comes to spirits’. When discussing demons’ and evil spirits’ with religious people who have performed exorcisms’, one thing is always mentioned. These catholic priests’ and preachers who are not catholic, always warn people about inviting unwanted spirits’ into their life. Every time a person speaks to a spirit, that person is at risk of possession, according to exorcists’. I’m a skeptic so my stance on that is neutral, but if I was claiming to be religious, (like the Warrens’ have claimed), I would practice what I preach. No they don’t though, instead, they open the Warren’s “Occult” Museum. On their Web Page though, they don’t claim to be involved with any cults’. In fact they claim to be religious, stating that evil spirits’ and demons’ only purpose is to oppose God.
I don’t even want to make a comment about clairvoyants’, because honestly, I don’t know if it is real or not. I see it like Ed saw it in the beginning I guess. If you can’t see it, feel it or hear it and be able to record it, then it isn’t worth using as evidence . That was Ed Warren’s statement earlier in his life, but as time went by that changed. He had to raise the stakes’ and make Hollywood films’, or do interviews’ on sets’ that were darkly lit in order to cause mystery and suspense. This of course was because that was what the people wanted, so, lets give it to them. I’ve been watching videos’ and researching more about mediums’ too, but at the moment, I don’t have much to go on with what I know. I do know that it is always a good rule of thumb though, not to believe in someone who is doing these things’ for personal gain. Do not trust anyone on the internet who claims’ to be a clairvoyant or medium, who only wishes to sell potions and charms’ to you. They are nothing but scammers also.
Ed Warren made a claim once that nobody could bring him and his crew into a house and fool them. That is because he was the one who did all the trickery. He also claimed that he not only did his investigations’ according to religious and spiritual beliefs’, but also by scientific methods’. I guess the fictional box that allows spirits’ to talk to people out in the open is scientific right? Of course the Warrens’ won’t ask for money and only want expenses, that is because their blockbuster movies’ are coming out. They don’t really need your money, because like Ed said, “we deserve the money we get”. Your story and their free service, provides them with publicity and prestige. These people have repeatedly committed hoaxes’, and sensationalized the pain and suffering of others’ to benefit off of it.
In their biggest case ever, Amityville, the story was refuted by eyewitnesses, investigations’ and forensic evidence. The Father in the story openly announced that the story was a fraud, then later when he was hard up for money, changed his story again. Claiming that the haunting was not a hoax and that it was real. A lawyer by the name of William Weber stated that he and the family invented the story. The Father, Mother and he sat over a bottle of wine and collaborated on what their story was going to be. The priest that was suppose to go out to the house and corroborate the haunting, in reality, didn’t have any paranormal experiences’ whatsoever. It was dramatized, in order for the story to sell, a book to be written and a movie made. That is what the Warrens’ are about.
These people are such con artists’ they even had the arrogance to release the movie, “The Conjuring”. Giving the impression that they investigated this haunting, when in fact they only visited the house once and never returned. I heard this out of Andrea Perron’s mouth personally in an interview, done by Paranormal Zone T.V. and hosted by Norene Balovich. Even though I am talking about the Warrens’, I do wish to say this. If you want to find out interesting things’ concerning the Paranormal. Check this woman out. She does interviews’ with people who are involved with hauntings’ and she finds out allot of truths’ that you won’t find in articles’ or in the movies’. I enjoy watching her shows on Youtube whenever I can. The fact that these people had to live through these events’ without help, and then the Warrens’ would swoop in and take credit for something they didn’t do, is amazing to me. See though, that won’t be in the movie or in interviews’.
When the movie “The Haunting In Connecticut” was released, there were a few facts’ that were left out, and the story was completely out of context. So much, that the Snedeker family filed law suits’ against the book writer and the Warrens’ themselves’. I watched the documentary on the supposed haunting, and I can see differences’ in the movie and the documentary too. I have seen old footage from the talk show, “Sally”, with the family and the once neighbors’ together on stage. Not one of the neighbors’ have ever seen or heard of any strange things’ that occurred in that house. Nor have the neighbors’ who now live in the house had any strange occurrences’ since then. This is the same with Amityville as well. In the interview on the “Sally” show, the neighbors’ not only pointed out that the son was a cancer patient. They go even farther, stating that he was also able to smoke marijuana and was selling it to the neighbor kids’ for money. The writer of the original book, (written by “Ray Garton”), stated that accounts’ of what actually occurred was foggy, because everyone had different stories’. Some suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction as well.
Those are the more popular stories’ though, if you really want to hear the outlandish stories’ that didn’t bring the Warrens’ good publicity, check out these. The Smurl Haunting consists of a family in Pennsylvania, who the Warrens’ claimed had three spirits’ and a demon. The demon sexually assaulted both the husband and the wife as well. The Warrens’ also claimed to have exorcised a werewolf in nineteen eighty-three. They of course wrote a book about the experience, but, there was no evidence in regards to photos’ or videos’ proving that a possession actually occurred. The subject of the investigation, (Bill Ramsey), had only bitten a few people. Claiming that he himself was indeed a werewolf. In nineteen eighty-one, the Warrens’ also convinced, (Arne Johnson), a convicted murderer that he was insane because of demonic possession. He plead not guilty by reason of demonic possession as well and was unsuccessful. Some believe that they were also attempting to do this with the boy who killed his family in the Amityville house before the Lutz family moved in too.
The insanity with these two people, don’t only stay within their own little insane world. It has spread out to their nephew John Zaffis, their connections’ with Tony Spera from the T.V. show, “Paranormal State” and Lou Gentile as well. At the time, I wasn’t too into the paranormal, but when John Zaffis first appeared on Syfy I questioned something. Just before John came out with his Syfy show “Haunted Collector”, Grant Wilson left “Ghost Hunters’”. I wonder if it could have had something to do with the fact that John Zaffis and the Warren occult was taking over the network. Of course I could be wrong, though, I did notice small changes that even occurred in Ghost Hunters’. Those changes seemed to be aimed at creating more excitement in show. All of a sudden though, here comes John Zaffis with his make believe machine that talks to ghost. I wonder if that was why Grant left the show or not? I also read something on Wikipedia that said he had a stalker too, but I also learned not to take what I read on Wikipedia too seriously either. That is probably a question that I will never have answered though, but I have thought about it, since it happened. Like I said in the title, “An Elephant In The Room”…
Let me point out some things’ before I end this blog, all the nice things’ are said, now its time for the real issues’. The little boxes’ with noises constantly coming out, and spirits’ talking to you, they aren’t real. Most paranormal researchers’, who are serious about what they do, record the surroundings’. This is because when they go into most haunted areas’ and listen, they can’t hear a spirit make noises’. Later when they review the recordings’ they hear sounds’ that they didn’t hear with their own hearing. The same sometimes goes with video footage also. I like what I hear, when I hear people say that the lights’ don’t have to be turned off in order to see ghosts’. I am a skeptic, like I said before, but that makes sense to me. Most of what I see concerning paranormal research, isn’t exciting, scary or mysterious. Its tedious, time consuming and requires allot of observational skills’, in order to find things’ that are out of the ordinary. Just like I mentioned before in a blog that concerned UFO sightings’, debunking is an important part of the process also.
I find that most good paranormal research, hasn’t really even been looked at. I would like to see more investigations done in Asia, because more serious hauntings’ have occurred there. There are stories’ of mental hospitals’ in Korea, old temples’ in India and even a military base in Japan. Places’ that are registered as some of the most haunted places’ in the world and some that don’t allow visitors’ after dark. There are churches’ in Europe that were build out of the bones’ of human bodies’ too. Those stories’ though, are never told. Concerning what I said about mediums earlier, I am a skeptic, don’t get me wrong about that, it is true. My sister though, believes that her place is haunted. I personally wouldn’t know anything about the subject, if I didn’t do the research concerning paranormal occurrences’. Now, I can hear strange noises’ in her apartment sometimes’. I think to myself, maybe there is something going on here, but, it doesn’t seem to be a malevolent spirit though. So the possibility is there in my head.
I decided to do this blog, on this subject in particularly, because of some posts’ that I have been made on my page. I find them disturbing, not because of the material, but because of the situation. The situation concerning the Constatino family is really horrible to say the least. The father ended up kidnapping his wife who left him. Doing this after years’ of abuse committed against her by the him. When the cops’ arrived on the scene, they used concussion grenades’, but the husband was able to kill her and himself. Before the cops could enter the apartment. The daughter, who is the only survivor, says’ its all her mothers’ fault and said her father was a good man and her mother is burning in hell. I guess she either didn’t get the memo that beating your wife was a bad thing, or she condones it. See though, that isn’t even half of it, after they die, and not even allowing their bodies’ to get cold in the grave. These mediums like Mable Jordan, start posting on the internet how she contacted the Wife, (Debby Constantino), from beyond the grave. Steve Huff did this as well. These people disgust me, and for the record, I don’t follow Huff Paranormal. I never have and I never will, they are nothing more than scammers themselves’, just like the Warrens’. These people are scavengers’, willing to do what ever it takes in order to get publicity.
It amazes me that Steve Huff was suppose to be friends’ with this couple too, and not once was the subject of abuse ever mentioned. Was friendship to this man so alienated and superficial, that he couldn’t see that something was wrong? Oh but days’ after their death, he is setting in the apartment taking paranormal readings’ though. Attempting to talk to his dear departed friends’ of course. I personally believe that people should be respected after their death for a little while at least. That is disgusting and shows no proof of morals’ on the part of Huff Paranormal. I give my condolences’ to the family if they read this and I am sorry for the daughter’s pain. Anger is a stage in the grieving process, and hopefully she can find peace with her parents’ somehow. A family has been destroyed and that is enough to say on its own, so let them be and let their family move on.

"Aliens' and UFOs', The Mystery Continues'"

After reviewing allot of video and reading quite a few blogs' and articles' too. I have decided to give my take on the subject that concerns unexplained sightings', and the people involved with them. At first I will not go into details' I will start out only with the basics'. Speaking about what I am seeing, later I can get into more detail about subjects' that interest me the most. So this blog will not deal with any details' about certain events'. I will mention a few though, but I won't be talking about everything that is involved with these topics'. If you wish to find out more about them, research yourself or wait until later blogs' that I post. Those will be more detailed and I will try my best to be as neutral about those topics' as I can, and if you wish to comment, feel free to. I encourage conversation in everything I post. With that said I will start.
From what I see so far, believers', are broken down into about three categories'. One category, believes' in doing investigations' according to scientific research. Deductive reasoning and analysis as well. Most of these individuals' are not regular people on the street either. They are scientists', politicians', retired military officers' and more. 
These people have set up their own organizations' that go out and investigate not only the sights', but are mostly interested in the cases involving landings' as well. With clipboards' in hand they investigate and place check marks' next to what needs to be checked. Some of the people who are involved in this camp are also ex-members' of Operation Blue Book. No this operation is not a fairyland make believe operation created by alien nuts'. It actually existed and it was sponsored by the government. The operation's true intention though, is under suspicion though. Many who worked for the operation claimed that it's true intention was only to stifle claims', instead of investigating them. This is why some of Operation Blue Book's members', went on to create organizations', after the program was ended. 
Many of these individuals' were also involved in the disclosure hearings' that took place in Washington too. A retired Minister Of Defense from Canada and military air force pilots', told their stories' in front of Congress. An investigator, who covered the briefs' for Watergate, and the death of Karen Silkwood in nineteen seventy-four, gave some interesting testimony also. Stating clearly in open hearings' that Silkwood was assassinated by the C.I.A., in order to cover up a smuggling ring of uranium. Uranium that was being shipped to Israel from the U.S. illegally. He also stated, that negotiations' were made between the U.S., Israel and Iran, with concerns' to these operations'. As I researched for myself, I found out that it was a fact, Karen Silkwood did die under mysterious circumstances'. This information of an assassination though,was not given until the disclosure hearings'. Previously, I did research in a separate issue concerning Israel and Operation Sampson. That really caught my curiosity right there too.
This brings' me to the second category of believers'. These individuals' seem to believe in the old folklore about UFOs' and Aliens'. Some are conspiracy theorists' as well, adding the Illuminati to the twist and the Rothschild family themselves'. For a good understanding of these people, we first have to go back into history itself to explain. Back in the Eighteen-eighties' a vary popular German science fiction book was written. It was called The Vrilia. This book spoke of underground dwellings', where aliens' from another planet lived. According to the story, these beings' not only lived there, they have been here for thousands' of years'. Their mental capabilities' were so advanced, that they had to go beneath the Earth. If they ever surfaced, they would cause immense chaos, because of those abilities'. Humans' could not handle the presence of these beings and we would all parish because we were brought into contact. 
Stories' concerning Giants' have also contributed to this tale also. This originally started among the christian population with regards' to Genesis. According to this story, Angels' fell from the sky and had sex with animals' as well as human females'. This in turn produced Genetically altered beings' that devoured humans and are mentioned throughout history. The Anunnaki are mentioned by the Sumerians too in their texts' describing creation. Debates' between the religious cults' and alien believers' though, divide the issue of if this is related. The Ancient Astronaut Theorists' though, believe they are related. Sighting of remains' that belonged to giant human like beings' have been made all throughout history. Indians' have stories' that go back hundreds', maybe thousands' of years'. Paintings' of aliens' are on stones' that depict not only spaceships' but aliens' in spacesuits' too. 
The Vrilian though is what is the most interesting part of this category of alien believer though. After the book was written, it was thought that it inspired Hitler himself. An order known as Vril, began to develop just before World War Two. These were devout believers' in what the book taught and records do shows that this cult did have strong ties' to the Nazis'. Heinrich Himmler himself was a satanist, but also believed in this cause. A demented form of spirituality, sacrifice and extra terrestrial beings'. Developing into what the Third Reich would eventually follow. We can say that a form of Dementia itself fell over an entire country couldn't we, or was there more? The fact that the Nazis' were interested in building deep underground military dwellings' itself makes you wonder. Stories' like this also seem to cast doubt on the idea that Operation Paperclip was real too though.
After World War Two and well into the cold war, a story appeared in the Alien/UFO circles' that interested me. I can say that some of the story made me interested, because it was provocative. That wasn't the entire reason though either, circumstances' behind the storyteller's death were also a factor. His name was Phil Schneider and he was a contractor who worked for the government. In his claims', he stated that not only did he work for them, he also helped build Area 51. The provocative part of his story consists of him working in tunnels and falling into an underground layer. This area was occupied by aliens' who took him prisoner. Later, an elite crack commando force, fighting against the aliens', freed him. In the process of freeing him though, he lost fingers' on of his left hand as a result. Because of his work with the government, he was also tested and it was found that he had contracted cancer. He was in the final stages', during his last days'.
During his final days' Phil traveled around the country, speaking at conferences' and telling his story. As he traveled, he would also tell people at these conferences', that the government made several attempts' on his life. He spoke about the reason for why he was coming out with the truth also. Apparently a friend who he had worked with, was assassinated by the government. The person who he was referring to was involved with the Star Wars program, under Ronald Reagan, during the eighties'. This man was able to put a noose around his neck, tie it to a tree limb, get back in the car and shift his vehicle into gear. He was found dead in a park, after tying a rope to his neck and sitting on his car as it moved out from under him. The report said that it was a suicide of course.
During my research into this, I started learning about companies' based out of England, Marconi in particular. This company profits' off of building weapons of mass destruction. Scientists' hired by this company, develop the satellite systems' that go into submarines'. So that they can see what is happening in Phoenix, Afghanistan, India or wherever else they want to see. Not only did I found out about Marconi, further into my research I learned about G.C.H.Q, and England's surveillance program in Cheltenham. This one scientist wasn't the only death, there have been many more deaths' as well. Either by suicide or because of mysterious circumstances'. In a statement to the press Margaret Thatcher claimed that these deaths' didn't warrant an investigation. They were all coincidental. If only there were just three or four deaths', I could be inclined to agree, but that isn't the case. All through the sixties', seventies' eighties' and even into part of the nineties'. Over twenty-three scientists' have died, because of mysterious deaths'. Some have gone missing without a trace, and of course an investigation was unwarranted. Disclosure is a scary word I bet.
At the end of Phil Schneider's life, he was forced to wear a catheter and had to use a wheelchair. His body was discovered dead in nineteen ninety-six in his apartment. He was suppose to have committed suicide by hanging himself. With a hand that was deformed too much to do such a thing. He also had shoulder problems' as well. Yet, he was able to lift himself up and wrap the catheter hose around something three times'? I find his death more suspicious than the stories' he told. If this is not an assassination, then I myself would suggest that their is a cult out there. A society that is so bend on telling conspiracy, that they would help member's kill themselves' in order to do it. 
On July twenty-third, two thousand fifteen, a mystery man was found dead in a parking lot. He was there for well over two weeks' and his body was decomposing. Oddly the mystery about this man thickened, when his fiancee went missing as well. As the story unraveled, it became more and more insane. When the fiancee was found the story she told was so intense, it could easily be made into a Hollywood movie. According to the fiancee and her assistant, who were both missing, this man was an alien from another planet. He was send to Earth to save us from ourselves' it seems, an alien superhero for mankind. 
The man's name was Jefferey Lash and he didn't have any family or children. He and his fiancee were together for seventeen years' and all the time he told her he was a government agent who did work with agencies' concerning security. She also knew of his story, that he was an alien super soldier send to Earth to save humanity as well. Lash was diagnosed with cancer also, and gave instructions' to his fiancee that when he died. His people would take care of him and to not to worry about it. Not only was she told this, but, her assistant was told this as well. Both females' actually believed the story so much, that on the moment of his death, they abandoned his body in a parking lot. Fleeing to Oregon out of fear that Jefferey Lashes associates would kill them for knowing too much. At this stage, the assistant', Dawn Vadbunker, apparently didn't let her family know that she was leaving state. So they reported her as missing to the police. 
After two weeks', the two women came to their senses' though and decided to return to Los Angelos. When they returned, they also went to the parking lot to see if Jefferey Lash's body was removed. Only to find it decomposing where they left it two weeks' before. Now that they saw they had made a grave mistake. They then contact a lawyer, Harland Braun, asking that he contact the local police and report the incident. In the initial investigation, the police not only find the decomposing body, they find a cache of weapons' and ammunition. Twelve hundred guns' and six tons' of ammunition was found and much more is thought to be scattered throughout Los Angelos. All belonging to Jefferey Lash. 
With no rational explanation for how he was able to buy these weapons', or obtain the money in order to do it. He also had seventeen thousand dollars' in cash on him and owned seventeen vehicles'. Some of these vehicles' were also militarized and capable of traveling on water and in harsh terrain. Though we can easily say that him being an alien is nothing but hogwash. What about the money? What about the guns' and ammunition? Reports' made from the police department say that nothing illegal was committed. These vehicles' and guns' with their ammunition was legitimate and no crimes' were committed in order to obtain them. The fact that a human body was able to sit in a parking lot, (in the middle of Los Angelos), is strange enough.
Now we come to the third category of alien believer. I like to call this the category that consists of the grey area. This area has allot of people who are really smart and diligent in their efforts' to find evidence of Extra Terrestrials', but are also mixing it up with folklore, conspiracy and things' of that nature. I watch videos' done by a cosmonaut who monitors' the International Space Station. He shows' good evidence, concerning lights' that steak across space and in our atmosphere. These occur regularly, some video evidence show that these lights' form around UFOs', while they are being filmed. The problem is this, even though the cosmonaut has the video, he constantly talks' about the Illuminati conspiracy to without information from the people. Then he goes into the spill about the dark government and their plot to control society. I don't care how smart you are. What you have for credentials', or what job you have had in the past. when the word Illuminati comes out of your mouth all credibility is gone. 
With the first category of believers' they state that out of all the investigations' they preform, only five percent is credible. To be credible, their has to be something that is not able to explained involved. Most of the the sightings' that are found is either explainable or they are thought of as a hoax. There  
are plenty of people out there too, who have this insatiable desire to come up with a good hoax too. They will go the extra mile to convince people of a conspiracy, alien sighting, or ghost haunting. Just so they can say that they fooled someone. I've found a few myself, one was concerning UFO sightings' in Mexico. The video was suppose to show an glowing object racing across the video feed. The only problem is, they had another smaller object that was glowing racing the other direction below that object. This is nothing more than a trick, using a pulley in order to create the effect. If order to find good credible evidence, it is always a good rule of thumb to attempt to debunk the evidence first. I encourage it on every post I put on my pages'

"The Art Of Silence And the Founders Of It's Faith"

The Art of Silence was originally a mistake made by Greek Philosophers' who traveled to Egypt. These individuals' wished to learn the inner meanings' of life that Egyptians' seemed to understand a bit more of. A symbol portraying a naked child, with his finger over his mouth is what started everything. Because of Aphrodite's indiscretions' she gave a rose to her son Eros who in turn was to give it to Hippocrates, in order to make sure that those indiscretions' remained silent. This was the beginning to the term sub rose, (or under the rose), and evidence can be seen all throughout history. Of course this story was handed down from the Egyptians', to the Greek and finally into the hands' of European Royalty and Nobles'. Hippocrates became Horus of course, and silence was symbolized by the rose. In old banquet rooms' roses can still be seen, just look up at the ceilings'. Where you see roses', that is where secrets' were to stay. What was said and done in the banquet room, stayed in the banquet room. Eventually, this practice was adopted by the church too, it's now called confessional. 
King Louis the seventh's entire family died when he was just a baby, from smallpox. Because King Louis's governess refused to allow "doctors'" to use bloodletting, he survived. Unlike his oldest brother who died earlier, because of the practice. This though isn't a part of the story, so I will move on. Being the only successor to his grandfather's thrown, at the age of five Louis the Seventh was crowned king of France. According to history, King Louis died because of syphilis, and left many illegitimate children. This was due to his cousin, (twice removed), who was made regent, until Louis was able to rule. Ruling in the king's place, (the Duke of Bourbon), out of fear that his family might lose the thrown to the House Of Orleans. Decided that the young king should have children as soon as possible. An heir had to be born, and before this young king was even old enough to mate it seemed. At the age of eleven the king met his betrothed wife to be, for some reason he just was not interest. Maybe if it wasn't for the fact that she was only three, so they found him a replacement. A young princess from Poland, who was old enough to conceive. It took three pregnancies', but finally an heir was born. At an early age the king was introduced to sex, his thirst was unquenchable. Many female visitors' appeared at the palace, for late night visits' and many children out of marriage were conceived. 
Because kings' needed heirs' to their thrown, royalty placed sex above everything else. Henry viii, what a bastard he was, the women he married and divorced at will. Leaving the church for his desire for flesh and at the end of his life being handicapped. His lack of children though, and no male who could inherit his kingdom. This again, brought the need for an heir. With one wife, he became so furious that he framed her for incest and adultery. Claiming her to be a whore, who had sex with family members'. Being gracious though he allowed for her beheading to be done with a sword, instead of with the customary blunt ax. 
It is now known about King James, and his homosexual tendencies' too. How he frequented playhouses', and always in the company of young male companions'. The idea that playhouses' in London, were not too reputable in those days'. That would be unthinkable to most intellectuals' today. "such foolishness!!!" It's true though, only reprobates and homosexuals' attended, and no royal subject would be caught there. This though isn't spoken, stories' concerning King James, Francis Bacon, Chris Marlowe and Shakespeare himself, have arisen from this topic. Some have claimed that Shakespeare did not exist. Mark Twain even traveled to London, to investigate himself. Walt Whitman made a comment on the subject, but took no stance on the topic of course. Probably out of fear, that his own sexual preference would be questioned also. Was Shakespeare a pen name, for someone else to write under? Could it be true? Buggery and Sodomy surround and slandered his family name. His son in-law, was supposedly arrested for it. His writing and the people he worked with, were entrenched in it. Oh but none of this could be true, could it?
Oh but who could leave out the man of mystery, Saint Germain himself. It is hard to tell if he was a forger, a thief, lover or just plain crazy man. His story went down as legend, mystery and folklore all at the same time. It is really hard for anyone to say, if this man really even existed. He played footsies' with royalty and nobles' during wild orgies', proclaiming that he was three hundred years' old. The son of an exiled noblemen from Romania, "Francis Rakoczi", the second one that is. He was a musician and a scientist, who wrote better than most and could make diamonds out of thin air. He was hiding from the House of Hapsburg because of his family name, and visited royalty with ease. Taught the art of music by his uncle "Gian Gastone" and raised by a homely duchess, "Violante Beatrice". He was either conceived by her and Rakoczi, or she took him as her own, it isn't quite clear. I've heard two stories', one of his mother being a homely noble women with a homosexual husband. Rakoczi of course had sex with her out of sympathy too. He was mentioned by Voltaire, Casanova and Charles of Hesse-Kassel was known to have befriended him. With claims' of alchemy being used, creating jewels, fabrics', dyes' and cosmetics' of course.
Whether Saint Germain existed or not, it doesn't really matter, the story that was told was profound. During those days' secrets' were kept and folklore brought them out. Rakoczi, his family and his family before him, suffered at the hands' of their enemies'. He fled for his life and end up in Constantinople in exile, for turning against the Holy Roman Empire. All of his life, his father's life and his grandfather's before him, their family was always held hostage. When wars' were ended hostages' were taken, in order to keep peace among the people. Orders' of chivalry, (like the Order Of The Golden Fleece), would choose families' among their own noblemen, in order to take them as hostages'. They were taken into custody but not put into prison, instead, they stayed in castles' that belonged to members' of the order. 
At the time when Rakoczi was still in Romania. There were many struggles' between Romanians', the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire. In order to fight against the Spanish, Leopold the First had to make peace with the Ottoman Empire. By doing this, Romania had to pay tribute to the Ottoman Empire too. Politics' during those times' were confusing. Not only did the Ottomans' have power over Romania, the Holy Roman Empire did too. Rakoczi and all of his family, could have been Princes', but, they were forbidden to sit on the thrown by the Ottoman Empire. The Holy Roman Empire, would repeatedly take the Rakoczi family as hostages. Sorting out the process is still kind of confusing, but I intend to write more about it, because it is pretty interesting to learn about how all of this worked. 
Orders' which were regulated by knights', nobles' and royal families' such as these. Caused individuals' who weren't in those classes, to create secrete societies'. That is why the Rosicrucian, Free Masons', and other Hermetic Groups' were created. In Germany, if you were accused of committing a crime. You were summoned to a hearing held by a secret court. Instead of getting your summons in person, it was nailed to your door, a tree, or someplace where you went. The only sentence for any crime was death. If you found out who members' were in the court, then you were sentenced to death also. In order to be cleared of charges' you had to take oaths' in court, if you were a member of the court. If you weren't and you had a family member who was, then that family member had to take the oaths'. If nobody in your family was a member, then a percentage of the members' had to agree to take oaths' on your behalf. That is when most criminals' would decided to run, usually somewhere that wasn't ruled by the Holy Roman Empire.
So next time you hear about an old folklore, or a story that has been passed down from one generation to the next. Remember, there might be something to that story that is important. People from long ago didn't have the freedom to express themselves', like we do today. The story of Hansel and Gretel tells us a story that most aren't aware of. That is because most people have never read or have even heard about the original version. Hansel and Gretel were both abandoned in the forest by their mother and father. This story was inspired by an epidemic that occurred in Germany, a century before the story was written. Parents' were so poor that they would end up dumping their children in the woods', because they could no longer feed them.

"History Of The Mystery Schools' For Today's Modern Man"

Throughout history, man has always used ritual burial as a form of worship. Man has always felt that the human consciousness and the soul, survive after death. As far back as archaeologist have been able to go, evidence of this fact is clear. We not only dress and prepare our dead, we create rituals’ to send them on their way into the afterlife. Some religions believe that certain actions’ need to be taken in order to cause a needed effect in the afterlife as well. These facts’ can be found by studying the history of Ancient Egypt, as well as many other societies during those times’. Societies’ that are not bound geographically in the same regions’ of our planet too. 
History has presented so many amazing facts’ about our past, showing rituals’ that our ancestors’ preformed and structures’ build for their Gods’. Archaeologists’ have searched diligently, in search for the origin of these rituals’ and the reasoning behind them. One thing is certain though, as time goes by, these forms’ of worship always turn into some form of competition. Some would say that this in and of itself is a mystery, but, I know better than that. Christianity itself holds the answer to that mystery. When Christianity first developed, there was never a golden age for the religion. Not everyone agreed on the same ideologies’, concerning Jesus. Just as it is with other forms’ of religion, Christianity, was broken down into factions’. Most, believe that searching into the far past only shows’ individuals’ who were ignorant. These people are far from knowing the truth of what was really going on though. 
There were mystery schools’ in the past that taught their followers about the experience of death and rebirth in the here and now. Immortality of the human soul was the great question of the day. Because this was such a hot topic in those days’, questions’ concerning Jesus himself was and is still a popular discussion. Allot of conspiracy theorists’, theologians and historians’, have noticed similarities’ between Egypt’s paganism, the Christian Bible and the Torah. A passage that have been overlooked repeatedly in the book of Revelation in the christian Bible is a good example of this. It states that their dead bodies’ will lie in the streets’ of Sodom and Egypt, also indicating that this was were Jesus was crucified. Revelation 11:8 is the actual verse, if you wish to check it out for yourself. Many Pseudo Archaeologists’ and historians’ believe this verse to be proof, stating that mystery schools’ in Giza actually did exist. That these facts indeed were covered up by popular christian belief. Claiming that our religious beliefs today are ethical and not mythical. 
The question then is this, is to question blaspheme, and to blaspheme to go to hell? Is it virtuous to follow blindly and not to question? Is blind faith the highest form of virtue, when evidence shows that even Thomas was in doubt. Where one belief promises the rewards’ in the hereafter, the other promises the reality in the here and now. In Giza, their Egyptian Ideologies’ promised the spiritual experience before death. These teaching though, (before the new kingdom), were taught only to the elect few. Thus, the mystery schools’ origins’ are assumed to have started here. Some have even wondered how Jesus gained such knowledge, (not taking into consideration that he was claiming to be the messiah), and coming from Giza also brings’ questions’ of what his teachings actually were. Not only did Jesus have such mastery with words’ and came out from Giza, but so did Moses, Pythagoras, Plato, Solon, Herodotus and Pliny. To this day these men contribute to society and the way we think.
There are questions’ concerning time that is unaccounted for in Jesus’s life. It is said that in order to educate a largely ignorant and illiterate populous, it is best to simplify concepts’. To the degree where these people can grasp those concepts’ of course. By doing that, some believe that the Bible only teaches’ the outer teachings’ of Jesus. These actions’ in turn, resulted in decimation, degradation, despotism and superstition. These teachings’, (to some), are aimed at people who hear and hears not, sees but sees not. The inner teachings’ though are thought to be in greater amount. So much that every book written, could not contain the amount that Jesus taught. It consisted of a working system of knowledge, with experiences’ that could not even be achieved. As I researched this subject to the best of my ability though, this is what I learned. The teachings’ of Jesus were never written down by Jesus himself. Not one piece of literature was written in Hebrew, his native tongue. The first christian Bible was written in Greek and was horribly written as well. When it was translated into Latin, the writing was even worse. Not one stitch of evidence proves that Jesus ever wrote anything. The case is the same with Socrates, Pythagoras and even Plato for that matter. John’s books’ were the first attempt at connecting Christianity with Jesus. Years’ later it was determined that John, (who wrote the passages’ in the Bible), was not the disciple. 
Earlier I mentioned that Christianity was broken up into factions’. This is where that plays a roll in the story. Many different people believed in Jesus, having their own ideologies’ and all separate from what other factions’ ideologies’ were. As time went by, these factions’ fought over who worshiped Jesus properly. Either the smaller factions’ eventually joined bigger factions’, or they simply died off. While this was going on, Christianity wasn’t even a word. Rome converted to Christianity and the christian religion began. It was created by the roman emperor Constantine, who gathered all of the christian scholars’ together and wrote the first Christian Canon. A few of the original books’ were taken out as time passed, but this was definitely the first Canon. When finished, Rome made it law, that any books’ that were not added to the canon, were to be considered heretic and illegal. A word that would go down in infamy for centuries’ to come, because, the penalty for owning any of these books was death.
Out of fear that they would be put to death as a heretic, worshipers’ hid these books’ that weren’t included in the canon. Greek and Roman philosophers’ were forced to convert from pagan beliefs’ to Christianity, or be put to death also. Alexandria was almost burned to the ground, while scholars’ such as Hypatia, were dismembered, burned at the stake and put to death in the streets’. Ancient Egyptian temples’ were desecrated or destroyed, replacing pagan symbols with Christian symbols’ instead. The writer John, mentioned in the New Testament of the Bible himself, was also exiled to a remote Island. Constantine still used his passages’ in the Canon though. Oddly enough, the story takes a dramatic turn again. After Christianity became Rome’s chosen religion, Constantine began to slowly favor Gnostic beliefs’. Greek and Roman Philosophers’ who were once pagan, began to incorporate those philosophies’ into Christianity also. History shows, that different from what popular belief may say, Rome was not defeated. It was abandoned. Before Constantine’s death, he had finally decided that it was time to move his capital. He abandoned Rome resettling in his new capital Constantinople.
I do concede to the idea that Greek philosophers’ obtained their ideas’ from Egypt though. I also know that in order for any scholar to obtain a true education during that era, he had to travel to Egypt. Greek and Roman Philosophy became the standard, and Egypt was forgotten though it seems. Methods’ of teaching through mystery schools’ are seen in Greece, though, Egypt was now teaching the mysteries’ to its people openly during the new kingdom era. Mystery schools’ could have survived in Egypt or the history of them could have been taught still, that we will never truly know. I can see why most of these Pseudo Archaeologist believe this too. An injustice has been done to Ancient Egypt and her contributions to society have not truly been recognized by modern civilization. Nobody can deny the precision and skill that was put into building the Great Pyramid. The Egyptian use of methodology in these matters also. The fact that today our architects’ are still unable to do what this society did, with the same tools’ that were available to them. These traits occurred not only in Egypt though, but in other societies’ throughout the world also and in different regions’ too. 
Egyptian belief passed down to the Greek philosophers’, the idea that the visible and the invisible were all a part of nature. They understood the concept of Microcosm and Macrocosm as well. Egyptians’ were well versed in healing for people of that era. During the time of Ancient Egypt, different societies’ had working knowledge of Astronomy, distance, and were able to recognizing nearby planets. They understood Mathematics’, recognized the procession of the equinox and local star groupings’. A few individuals’ even knew that our world was in an ever turning order of cycles’. Yet we have been fooled into believing the idea that all people from the past thought that the world was flat? Such nonsense needs to be stricken from our minds’. None of what I have said even deals’ with what the Jews’ or civilizations in the Orient and America knew. That is because this subject covers’ so many areas’, and it would take more time than what I wish to spend with writing this blog. I’m not saying that I won’t wright about it, but, I will write about it in another blog to come. These teachings’ though for sure had to have been passed down to Plato, Pythagoras, Euclid, Plotinus and the list goes on. Especially considering that this was during times’ when free thought was not permitted, by the powers that be.
I can’t say that the mystery schools’ of Egypt were connected to the Greek and Roman schools’. Nor can I say they were connected to Hermetic Groups during the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance era. I can say that the information had to have been passed down from one source to another though. By any account, the effects’ of the mystery schools’ from Egypt, Greece and Rome, can still be heard. Stories’, conspiracies’, folklore and legends’ that have been passed down through time. Isis and Osiris became mysteries’, with connections’ to the old testament, Torah, Jesuit Priests’ and the Catholic Church. Pillars’ represented a families’ bloodline, and they were favored by God himself. A holy stone that traveled throughout the world, only to rest under a royal thrown. Sat on by kings’ and queens’, while they were being crowned and taking their rightful places’ as rulers’. A temple that inspired stories about its architect, murdered for the secrets that were given to him. The king that build that same temple, who gathered immense power from demons’ and wielded it at will against evil. Grading systems’ that were used by hermetic groups’ and still used today in order to grade our children. Ceremonies’ for the graduates’ who finish their education, using ritual and speeches’ of celebration.
