I need a bit of a break before I start reading Jacques Vallee’s analysis of “UFO” sightings in prehistory, so today let me catch up on some other news.
Last night Syfy began airing William Shatner’s Weird or What, a series that was first broadcasted in 2011. The first season aired on the Discovery Channel, and subsequent series were screened only internationally until now. The show examines unexplained phenomena, including ancient astronauts and lost civilizations, with some of the genre’s greatest hits, including cocaine mummies, Mystery Hill in New Hampshire, the Ica Stones, alien abduction, crystal skulls, etc. TV Guide stated that last night’s airing would explore whether the Hindu god Ganesha was an ancient astronaut, but TV Guide was wrong. They covered modern aliens instead.
It would be inappropriate for me to review the show because the producers of the program contacted me about appearing on an alien themed episode a couple of years ago, and I provided them with information and research assistance. After learning that I was not a believer in aliens, they decided not to use me on air and I believe the specific episode was never produced.
So, instead, I thought I’d pass along a piece of news about America Unearthed. Stanley J. St. Clair (yes, another Sinclair/St. Clair) reported that Scott Wolter is going to continue pressing the Henry Sinclair-Jesus Bloodline storyline in the upcoming season of the show:
The interesting point here is that Scott is obtaining a copy of the delightful full-color illustrated children’s book, Prince Henry St. Clair, Earl of Orkney, by British artist, Hazel Brown, which was published this winter by St. Clair Publications and may use it in an upcoming episode of the show, according to my communication yesterday afternoon with Scott.
I really hope this isn’t true. I am so sick of the Sinclair/Holy Bloodline/Templar conspiracy nonsense. Haven’t we trampled this idea into the ground yet? I’m wondering if I should make the effort to put out a new edition of Fred W. Lucas’ debunking of the Zeno Narrative/Henry Sinclair idea more than a century ago. It would be a huge pain in the neck to do because it would involve retyping the entire book, but if we’re going to get another year of this crap, it might be worth the effort to have it out there.
What I have done is submit to the printer the files for Unearthing the Truth: A Critical Companion to America Unearthed Season One, which will probably be ready for sale late next week. Here’s a sneak peek at the cover:
