How about the goats themselves you ask? Here’s Gonzo, a Tennesee sufferer of this syndrome…

Scientists Suggest That Cancer Is A Man-Made Disease

Basing their findings on research conducted at the University of Manchester’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, professors Rosalie David and visiting Villanova professor Michael Zimmerman assert:

“In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases. The virtual absence of malignancies in mummies must be interpreted as indicating their rarity in antiquity, indicating that cancer causing factors are limited to societies affected by modern industrialization”.

Moving from prehistory to modern times utilizing literary and mummified remains, there is little occurrence or reference to cancer, until the 17th century, where the team found the first reports in scientific literature of operations for breast and other types of cancer.

It has been suggested that the short life span of individuals in antiquity precluded the development of cancer. Although this statistical construct is true, individuals in ancient Egypt and Greece did live long enough to develop such diseases as atherosclerosis, Paget’s disease of bone, and osteoporosis, and, in modern populations, bone tumors primarily affect the young.… Read the rest

Aliens Arriving Today! Seriously.

Just another Wednesday? Not so fast. Retired air force officer Stan Fulham predicts October 13, 2010 as the tentative date for a fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles to hover for hours over the earth’s principal cities. Fulham believes that this event to be the first in a series intended to avert a planetary catastrophe resulting from increasing levels of carbon-dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere dangerously approaching a “critical mass.”

I suppose there’s no need to be on the internet, you could just look up to the sky where the visitors will be hovering. For more information, click here.

There are many versions of this event online, with predictions of contact “by the end of the year”.… Read the rest

Terence McKenna 101: “The Future is Mental”

As more time passes, the research and conclusions postulated by philosopher and modern psychonaut Terence Mckenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) are proving themselves to be fact rather than fiction. His eloquent observations on the mind-body connection and in turn the human relation to the environment are essential to anyone who feels the growing disconnect between the western way of life and the natural/ecological world.

Also poignant is the political aspect of his talk, drawing the parallels between the dissolving of the soviet system to the eventual deterioriation of the western system

This is a fantastic 1991 presentation where he outlines the basic tenets of the Archaic Revival and the psychedelic experience and it’s place in the western modern technological world.

USAF: Aliens Still Controlling Nuclear Arsenal

USAF letterOn Monday The National Press Club will be hosting several retired USAF and RAF officers who will be testifying to the intervention and active monitoring of ICBMs by unidentified flying objects while they were stationed at missile facilities:

“I was on duty when an object came over and hovered directly over the site,” Salas said, regarding the March 16, 1967, event at Malmstrom AFB in Montana. “The missiles shut down, 10 Minuteman missiles. And the same thing happened at another site a week later,” he said.

While this story has been picked up by the illustrious Fox network here, there are other more detailed accounts of these events here, which include scans of the “declassified” documents. Salas has also penned a book about the events at Malmstron AFB in 1967 entitled Faded Giant.… Read the rest

Wall Street Vampire Slayings

Wall Street Vampire SlayingsTomorrow, September 22, at 11:09 pm in downtown Manhattan, the Aaron Burr Society will gather for a “Wall Street Vampire Slaying” that from the description provided, lands somewhere between more recent anti-war die-ins and the use of the absurd by the situationist movement to draw attention to the greed and self-indulgences of Wall Street and Western Capitalism:

“On the night of September 22, 2010 there will be a Vampire Slaying of Wall Street Bloodsuckers, traitors who wrap themselves in the flag.

Symbolic Slaying 11:09 p.m., arrive at 10:30 p.m. in front of the New York Stock Exchange at Wall & Nassau Streets, NYC 10005. Slayers after–party TBA.”

See you there!… Read the rest

Catholic Church Brings Back Indulgences, Heaven Now Available for a Price

Plenary Indulgences, one of the main issues that caused Martin Luther to rebel against the Catholic Church, has been reintroduced here in New York City and I’d assume across the country. Here’s how it works, according to the NYTimes, who as you know is not exactly the bastion of research, but I believe this description of the practice is accurate:

“According to church teaching, even after sinners are absolved in the confessional and say their Our Fathers or Hail Marys as penance, they still face punishment after death, in Purgatory before they can enter heaven. In exchange for certain prayers, devotions or pilgrimages in special years, a Catholic can receive an indulgence, which reduces or erases that punishment instantly, with no formal ceremony or sacrament.”

So they essentially “call ahead” after you die to ensure they aren’t too rough on you in the afterlife…
