Come Join My Cult..

A week ago I started doing a podcast that contains interviews from the archives of my radio career. This week’s is an hour chatting to David Icke, the previous week was with David Aaronovitch, on the subject of his book “Voodoo Histories: The Role of Conspiracy Theory in Shaping Modern History”. The interviews are all being put out for the first time without any major edits. When broadcast, mainly around 2007-2009, they all needed cuts to fit into their allotted timeslots.

The previous week features a good ol’ debunking session with a journalist from The Times:

    I don’t really see the belief system of a man who makes the absurd claim that there are intelligent reptilian alien humanoids walking among us as ever really hitting mainstream status.

      Consider this then, belief is the end of reason. Once a person has committed to believing in anything they have arrived at a termination point, they no longer need reason their position since there is no reason to put any further thought into it.

      Have you ever tried to argue with a believer about anything?

      Basically, all i am saying is that the system exists with out reason.

      …have you been to a church service in the last 20 years? I still cringe at the years of early development I lost to their mythological system.

            …we must me linked through the HAARP. I was thinking the same thing until I realized the fun in loading up a cart w/ an IV kit, car battery/cables, flexicuffs & an assortment of small implements suitable for pushing the imagination in a decidedly chilling direction.

    Flippy, which one would you think liked dolphins most? I’d say Flippy,
    wouldn’t you? You’d be wrong though. It’s Hambone.”
