L. A. Marzulli Says Scott Wolter Inspired Him to Hunt for Nephilim and Europeans at America's Stonehenge
Comedian and macadamia nut farmer Roseanne Barr suggested that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a “Nephilim,” which the former sitcom star used as a synonym for space alien: “I think he’s an alien from another planet,” Barr told The Star. “He doesn’t seem fully human. Was this guy invented in a lab?” The reporter wasn’t able to follow Barr’s reference to Nephilim and so discussed it parenthetically as “fallen angel, son of god or space alien.” Barr meant this as a joke, but it reinforces the idea that the ancient astronaut theory and Ancient Aliens is seeping into everyday discussion in weird ways.
Specifically, the weird way seems to be through the good offices of the History Channel. They are the ones who are actively driving the demand for bad ideas and sparking still more. Our case in point today comes from our friend L. A. Marzulli, who is recovering from his recent admission that the “demon fairy” he hyped in both his Watches X DVD and his newest book is a fake. He has now capitalized on the hoax by portraying his admission that he had rushed to market with half-assed research as a brave stand toward integrity. Marzulli posted a 40-minute video outlining how he discovered the hoax but neglected to apologize for not having done the research before selling thousands of Watchers X DVDs and companion books based on unfinished research (over several years!) and his bottomless credulity.
In his video analysis, the narrator says that this is “another example of how Watchers sweats the details to bring you the truth!” Just not before charging you cash money for the lies.
Similarly, Marzulli ought to be reeling for a fascinating, thorough, and powerful analysis of the flaws in his DNA tests of elongated skulls from the Paracas people of Peru. Jennifer Raff offered an extraordinary critique yesterday through the expedient method of reading Marzulli’s own book, Nephilim Hybrids. You must read the piece for yourself for all the details, but the bottom line is clear: Marzulli’s team left too many opportunities to contaminate the samples, and the resulting discovery of “European” DNA is almost certainly due to contamination from Marzulli’s team. I was surprised to learn that despite the implication in Marzulli’s publicity materials for Watchers X, his tests were conducted not on skulls in Peru but on remains in a private collection in Oregon, for which no provenance was provided.
But to return to the issue at hand: Just before the demon fairy admission, Marzulli posted a new video about America’s Stonehenge, also known as Mystery Hill, and it represented a moment of cross-pollination between fringe historians united through History Channel patronage. Marzulli, who has appeared on History Channel shows like Search for the Lost Giants, said that he first learned of Mystery Hill from a very familiar source: “I first heard about this very enigmatic site while watching the History Channel’s show America Unearthed.” America Unearthed, hosted by geologist Scott Wolter, aired on both the History Channel and its now-defunct secondary channel H2. Wolter is currently hunting giants and Nephilim with his business partner under the Xplrr Media LLC banner.
Marzulli described the episode of America Unearthed about Mystery Hill as “mind-blowing.” He was particularly taken by the “complex” astronomical alignments of the site.
“In my opinion,” Marzulli writes, “and that of several other Native American people that I have talked to, Native Americans did not create these types of earthworks or sites.” He is indeed correct, but not for the reason he thinks. Virtually every archaeologist who has written about the site agrees that the site, as currently constructed, is a modern reconstruction of stone buildings that were originally made in the colonial period, likely as cold cellars or storage units. Historical photographs demonstrate that the “ancient” alignments and features were largely created by the owners of the site in the middle twentieth century as they rebuilt the site according to their belief in its ancient astronomical function.
Marzulli, however, is not content merely to accept Scott Wolter’s TV show as factual at face value; he also has to attribute the site to the Nephilim. In the program Wolter endorsed the speculative idea presented by Kelsey Stone, the son of the site’s current owner, that one of the stones on the site aligns with both Stonehenge and Beirut, Lebanon, “proving” a Phoenician connection to both sites. Because the stone is (a) irregular in shape, making an exact alignment subjective and (b) was repositioned in modern times, this alignment is entirely fictitious. However, Marzulli doesn’t care and determined that Satan is behind it. From his partial transcript:
I discussed this with a surveyor who was taken aback by the information I presented to him. He told me that the only way this could be done would by triangulation from the air. That statement immediately led me to think: who is the prince of the power of the air? […] It is contention of the Stone and his father [that] this site is about 4000 years old and was created by the Phoenicians. What Stone didn’t know was [that] the Phoenicians are the descendants of the Canaanites who were, in my opinion a Nephilim Tribe.
Note that Marzulli claims in his video that the Nephilim are “soulless.” He admits that killing descendants of Nephilim would be “genocide,” but he says that he supports their eradication because these people’s lack of souls means that they can be killed without consequence or sin. “So, is it genocide? No, it isn’t genocide. It goes back into this whole idea that we’re in a cosmic war between the fallen cherubim and the one-third of the angelic host which fell with them and the Most High God.” Marzulli, in earlier posts, alleged that the Nephilim were responsible for inducing homosexuality, and his colleague Steve Quayle claims that homosexuals are tainted with Nephilim genes. Do the math. It’s pretty clear what Marzulli is using his dog-whistle to say.
The cider-pressing or lye-pressing table displayed at the site as the “sacrificial” table becomes for Marzulli proof that Mystery Hill was the site of human sacrifices akin to those performed by the Nephilim in Peru, at Stonehenge, and in the Phoenician lands. He claims to have “accessed” the “chamber” beneath the sacrificial altar and concluded that it must have been for containing the human victim. This “chamber” is another fake, constructed when the “sacrificial” table was repositioned decades ago. Photographs show that the “table” was flat on the ground in the 1940s, and has at various times since then been high up on tall legs or close to the ground on short legs.
Marzulli says that he hopes the site will be excavated to search for human remains because he believes such remains will prove to be those of giants or fallen angels, whom he considers the builders of the site. He concludes his video thus:
So we have a disparity between mainstream archaeologists and those of us, like Scott Wolter and myself, as well as the Stone family that believe the Americas were visited by people from the Europe and the Middle East long before the days of Columbus. Is this site the remains of what I have come to call Fallen Angel Technology and Nephilim architecture? Like much of what we explore, it only leads to further questions.
Note the way that Marzulli is purposely tying himself to Scott Wolter, attempting to draw the History Channel’s cloak of “credibility” over himself. Those “further questions” are only question if you have a paranoid conspiracy mindset that is struggling to fit everything into a Nephilim framework and trying desperately to make every part fit, even when the facts are clearly against you.
