In 2002, Michael Tsarion published a book called Atlantis, Alien Visitation, and Genetic Manipulation. It’s a bizarre and complicated conspiracy theory involving global powerbrokers who conspired to hide an ancient catastrophe from human knowledge, yielding a worldwide cult of solar worship and mental control of the masses. (It’s apparently some warmed-over Victorian solar-hero theorizing mixed with modern paranoia.) This, he says, is due to aliens from Atlantis and is also the reason for what Tsarion views as humanity’s penchant for “evil.” Tsarion, of course, feels that he can define evil for the entire universe, whose various amoral black holes and violet gases and tentacle-bearing space travelers bend to his will.
I would like to point out an interesting prophecy Tsarion offered. In the first edition of the book, from 2002 (as given in my 2004 copy, though the most recent edition claimed a 2000 publication date for the first edition), he writes that the succeeding decade would bring about a revelation of “the truth”:
During the next 10 years, the human race is destined to finally discover the facts about its true origins and destiny. As part of this discovery, we have to address the overwhelmingly important question of how the phenomena of evil came into the world and into the consciousness of Earth’s human inhabitants. This is a question that should be on the mind of every living man and woman.
That, of course, would have corresponded perfectly with the alleged Maya Apocalypse of 2012. Indeed, Tsarion wrote another book called 2012: Is It the End of the World? Now, as you will recall, this never happened, and Tsarion continues to crank out books complaining, among other things, that history is being manipulated by an evil elite who murdered Meriwether Lewis to suppress the truth about white colonization of pre-Columbian America. Yes, that again. It’s amazing that this material stayed so secret that only Michael Tsarion, Scott Wolter, and a cast of thousands were able to ferret out the clues. We should all be relieved to know that even when the aliens return to punish us all for our evil sins, the most important thing is that white people were in America first!
So how did Tsarion react to his failed prophecy that humanity would awaken to its alien overlords by no later than 2012? In 2011, Tsarion released a Kindle edition of the book bearing a new copyright date, 2011, and still including the same claim that ten years out, the truth will finally emerge. I guess that resets the clock to 2021 for the tardy aliens to come enlighten us.

Wait, now 2012 resets to 2021? LOL.

Actually, I assume that he just republished the old book with a new copyright date and didn't think anything about the text inside.

There is a prophecy attributed to Mother Shipton that in the 19th C ended "...the world shall end in 1881."

So, we were genetically created to be a labor force and compatible breeding partners, given advanced knowledge of the stars, taught all the necessary skills, humanities, sciences and mathematics to become civilized AND received the concept of "evil" from extraterrestrial beings, who coincidentally, became the basis for our religions.

Does he say how these global powerbrokers discovered these ancient catastrophies?

Inherited, of course, from the ancient cults formed to protect the secret from the earliest times. Very Cthulhu cult-like, actually.

Of all the alternative historians, I find Tsarion the most troubling. He doesn't go out of his way to get his mug all over cable television, pumps out loads of work, has a farm of self-referencing web sites, a side gig as a special kind of astrologer based on a system he designed, and a Jordan Maxwell devotee with the same irritating habit of hinting at hidden information without ever really explaining it. Plus he has some "mysterious backstory" of being both Northern Irish and Tibetan and somehow being initiated into the deep historical traditions of both cultures.

You're missing the point badly. Read the book that I co-wrote and that Tsarion wrote the foreword to before making ridiculous claims.

Tsarion's work is very in depth so correct on so many levels especially the philosophy and psychology and also the ancient history that is hidden from most.

WOW... people are sooo serious...Read the book,it's a funtastic adventure.I don't think we're required to believe anything.Whether it's Tsarion,Sitchen or Beetle Bailey,it seems like alot of people need some form of "enlightenment".Hehehe
You're a moron

So you want to dismiss the historical facts about the colonization of America by vikings and others, because it's inconvenient for your little fascist system of political correctness. What a genius.

I first encountered Tsarion a year ago when researching Holocaust denial. His website contains pretty much all of the most extreme antisemitic theory in existence. He claims in one interview that Nazi "Germany was the greatest civilisation the world has ever known... everything we have been told about that country is lies and I've spent years of back-breaking research stripping away those lies..."

yes exactly and now I've been binge watching unslaved.com and so much more. I've been listening to and reading Michael T for almost 3 decades and he is brilliant.
