Scott Wolter: Graham Hancock's "Magicians of the Gods" Are "Ancestors of the Venus Families"
Let’s start today with a fascinating new discovery in Greece, where the old myth of human sacrifice to Zeus on Mt. Lykaion seems to have been confirmed by the first-ever discovery of human remains in an ancient altar dating back to the end of the Mycenaean period. According to Apollodorus (Library 3.8.1) and Hesiod, the mountain’s namesake King Lycaon tricked Zeus into eating human flesh and was turned into a wolf. Pausanias (8.38.7) records that on an altar on the mountain secret sacrifices occurred, hoary with age, and that Lycaon became a wolf because he had sacrificed a child on the mountain’s altar (8.2.3). Now for the first time there is some archaeological evidence, if it is confirmed that the adolescent male found on the mountain had been sacrificed, that these stories describe memories of Mycenaean religious rituals.
On another topic, yesterday I discovered that the origin point for stories of Knights Templar in the Americas seems to be a French article from 1902 that is based, ultimately, on wordplay and a lie. The wordplay involves identifying the Nahuatl name for temple attendants as the Templars, and the lie involves the original sin of assuming that the Mexicans were converted to Christianity by Irish monks in the early Middle Ages, paving the way for the Templars. I’m in the process of translating it, and so far, I’ve done about 60% of the article. I hope to have it translated by this weekend, minus the footnotes, which are the same length as the text and full of pedantic word games. It’s such a wacky and racist article that I am amazed anyone took it seriously. According to the author, Eugène Beauvois, the Templars, by dint of their “intellectual superiority” over Native Mexicans were able to force all of the peoples of Mexico to submit to them within a few years, despite being so few in number, and reigned as god-kings until the evil old Aztecs ended their 150-year reign.
Oddly enough, many people have taken this article seriously. It informed the Templar speculation of the former Vichy French Nazi collaborator Jacques de Mahieu, who in turn is cited by Scott F. Wolter on Templar activity in Latin America in his 2013 book Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers.
In a radio interview recorded about two weeks ago for the Euphomet online paranormal radio program, Wolter repeated his usual claims about the Kensington Rune Stone, vicious personal attacks, and his beliefs about God’s desire for “balance.” I only found out about this radio interview this week because, as I have mentioned before, Wolter and his company, Xplrr Media, lack a centralized clearinghouse for their activities, making them difficult to follow.
During the interview, Wolter also announced his belief that Graham Hancock is likely correct about a comet causing a widespread disruption of human civilization in the Ice Age. “I’ve never met Graham, but I really respect his work,” Wolter said. Wolter added that Hancock’s so-called “Magicians of the Gods” (whom Hancock views as the humans who inspired the Nephilim) are in fact “the ancestors of the Venus families,” who developed the “ideology” currently held by Freemasons approximately “10,000 years ago.”
Wolter’s ideas seem to reflect his acceptance of Masonic myths, particularly those that identify a secret stream of wisdom that the patriarch Enoch recorded on tablets, a story that is inseparable from Jewish legends of the antediluvian wisdom of the Watchers (the Sons of God), the fathers of the Nephilim. And thus the Nephilim subsume yet another fringe historian in their gigantic grasp.
“Academics can be absolutely maddening,” Wolter said in the interview. Around the 49:20 mark he refers to his recent withdrawal from Andy White’s class on “Forbidden Archaeology.” In so doing, Wolter said that White had “more going on behind the scenes,” and he refers, apparently to me, as “people I can’t be associated with, people with agendas, people who are not scientists.” He blamed these “people” (who, given the course’s speaker list, must mean me) for his decision to withdraw from the class.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Scott Wolter. Does he not have an agenda? Claiming any and all fringe ideas to support his Venus family-Templar-Holy Bloodline nonsense is evidence enough. As for "scientists", he has proven he has no understanding of science.

When did forensic geology become a science?
An Over-Educated Grunt
8/11/2016 12:18:19 pm
Mid-1950s when materials testing became standardized. It just doesn't apply here. A geologist is not necessarily competent on archaeological context.
8/11/2016 12:03:05 pm
Wolter couldn't help himself from falsifying numerical data for his KRS/Masonic numbers scheme:
8/11/2016 12:10:22 pm
That would be, there you have. Falsified data to make his points, pure and simple.
8/11/2016 12:08:10 pm
Can't fool me. Scott Wolter withdrew from the class because he couldn't find the room where the class was going to be held. It should have been easy, the room was marked with a hooked X.
8/11/2016 01:03:19 pm
What is it with the conspiracies? Sheesh. I didn't realize I had to clear every guest participant on my syllabus with every other guest participant on my syllabus. Oh wait, it turns out I don't.
8/11/2016 01:13:46 pm
Oh, I'm sure the conspiracy extends to, and includes, those guests you were able to schedule in place of Wolter. Namely, Harold Edwards and Henrik Williams, who have been quite vocal in their criticisms of Wolter.
8/11/2016 04:08:45 pm
Wolter is just a cowardly manboy who can't abide critical examination, which demonstrates the fact that he knows his facade is easily seen through by the discerning and educated. Jason was just an excuse to run away.

Speaking of "8 and 22" and the other KRS numbers, THE 1885 BEALE PAPERS share the same number sequences as the KRS proving they are connected and that the KRS is not from the 14th Century (ie: the forensic geology work was flawed). – The Beale Papers was a short pamphlet published in 1885 described a story of a man who was given instructions of what to do in case a prospector, Mr. Beale, did not return to Virginia from a mining trip out west. Mr. Beale had buried his gold, silver, and jewels cache in Virginia and the pamphlet included 3 coded pages, one each describing the specific contents of the cache, the location of the cache, and who the cache should be distributed to if he didn’t return.

How does this square with the observations that Joe Scales has made about the numbering sequence and what appears to be the falsification of data?

Did the Knights Templar even have a fleet to shuttle men, material, and currency around the Mediterranean in the first place ofr did they hire merchant ships? Did their supposed fleet have trans Atlantic capabilities? Could hey have navigated the Atlantic? Everyone of these fringe folks thinks it's do easy to cross the Atlantic. Befriend clinker designs and later ones could a typical box construction ship handle the currents and wind? Most be a naval engineer who can chime in. I've seen drawings on Minoans ships and I strongly question their ability to sail across into the Dover strait and into hudsons bay to mine copper.it all seems like hogwash from ancient peoples to Templars taking a quick five day journey to america
8/11/2016 08:04:48 pm
It is hogwash, and Beauvois, to his credit, unlike his successors, tried to get around it by suggesting that the Templars hired the Scandinavians to sail them to Nova Scotia (which he identified with Vinland), and they walked to Mexico.
8/12/2016 06:38:30 pm
I'm not a naval engineer, but my family history involves both navy and merchant marines and as such I've had a fairly basic education about boats, and ultimately the answer is:

But, of course the Vikings and Scotland have a storied history of their own, with fixed, intertwined connections, the same with all the other victimized countries in the region, which included France.

I have left room for the occasional valid un-blasted stonehole in this region. When you finally decide to study stoneholes in-depth instead of superficially, I hope you start by leaving room for the truly medieval stoneholes.

Why are the other people who wrote about this topic incorrect? Simply because they don't pre-suppose Scandinavian voyages into the interior of the Americas for which there is no evidence? Is it because they are academic?
8/12/2016 08:16:16 pm
John (too), you seem almost as fixated on the subject as I am. I'd like to help you overcome your skepticism by ignoring stoneholes for the moment and instead concentrating on something even more baffling to you...and that is how these medieval Norsemen came to be in the aforementioned region near the borders of SD/Mn in the first place. Questioning me about this baseline of what brought Norsemen here is certainly okay.

Carl, here's the possible pathway, in simplified terms: Scandinavia, Vikings, Scotland, France; Templar and post-Templars to America...always a possibility, as another viewpoint.
8/12/2016 06:48:59 pm
Gunn, it's only "easy to see how former Viking-era exploration knowledge may have been shared" if you COMPLETELY IGNORE the 100-or-so year gap between the end of the Viking era and the foundation of the Knights Templar AND the the fact that Christianity did so much to destroy "pagan" knowledge, including in Scandinavian countries AND a devastating volcanic eruption in Iceland. And of course, the fact that not so much as a single button or weapon or other piece of trash has ever been found anywhere along your supposed "inland route." They were not exactly known for "pack it in , pack it out," you know.

V...no need to get so personal, especially so quickly.

I also just published a book about the Beale Treasure and how it is related to the mystery in Minnesota. This came via a decipherment of the Beale Treasure location that included several place names associated with the Great Northern Railroad. This matched evidence I had already gathered that elements of the Hudson's Bay Company had left the KRS. This was done in association with Sir Hugh Allan who was not only related to Edgar Allan Poe but his stepfather whom I also found Poe's father blood related to. Both of these men were a direct relation of Colonel John Allan of Halifax Nova Scotia. All three were associated with the Society of the Cincinnati along with the Longfellow family of Grand Pri Nova Scotia. Poe's mother is an Arnold directly related to the builders of the Newport Tower who in turn are direct relations to the Lord Selkirk (Douglas) founder of the Red River Colony and controlling owner of the Hudson's Bay Company. Sir Hugh Allan along with James Hill (descendant of G. Washington) owned the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific Railroads. One more time. The KRS and TWO other missing stone legends are situated exactly on the borders of Rupert's Land of the Hudson's Bay Company. All of this is thoroughly documented in my last two books.
GUESS WHAT, FOLKS

Perhaps Mr Hancok and Mr Wolter shoul apply a little logic, any descendants from his mythical catastrophe after 10,000 years would number in the hundreds of millions and certainly not be a small tribe of Nephilim or a Venus "family"

While reading the attached sermon titled The Martyred President given in 1865, the Venetian Conspiracy was noted. Someone explained that Venice during the Roman Empire was much like DC is the Swamp of the American Empire. I'm sure the gatekeepers will push back on this analogy but they obviously knew about it back then.
