The Heretic Volume 9

The Heretic 9

Our good friends at The Heretic magazine have released Volume 9 of their fantastic electronic publication, and the new issue is chock-full of fascinating content ranging through the fields of alternative history, lost civilisations and technologies, the occult and more.

Here's a summary of the articles in the new issue:

In Two Blind Beggars, the Biblical Scholar Peter Cresswell discusses the peculiar tale of Jesus, as described in the Book of Mark, when he heals one blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, on the way out of Jericho. What Peter discovers about the conventional tale is the sort of thing that only a true heretic could uncover.

The Carolina Bays and the Destruction of North America is a perfect example of just how versatile Heretic regular, Ralph Ellis, truly is. Ralph’s research on this controversial topic has received the attention of academia, as it should yours. Is there no topic that he cannot master?

The best selling author Adrian Gilbert needs no introduction. His books have sold millions across the globe and now, making his Heretic debut, we could not think of anyone more qualified to discuss The Need for Modern-Day Heretics than he.

In The Pollen Gods, Heretic Editor Andrew Gough delves into the mystery of the curious stone bags that are portrayed on Assyrian reliefs and in the art work of many other ancient cultures. What Andrew has discovered will surprise you. Has he solved the mystery of ‘what’s in the bag’ once and for all?

In Stellar Gnosis – Liber Astrum,Payam Nabarz tells us: ‘The aims of following stellar workings are to increase the knowledge of the constellations and the ‘heavens’.’ But that is just the start of Payam’s fascinating examination of the ancient mysteries.

The intrepid explorer Francis O’Donnell, recounts his trip to the then tumultuous Peru, over twenty-five years ago. Frances augments his remarkable journey with spectacular photographs and asks, To Whom Does Art Belong? Anyone who has watched in horror as antiquities in Syria and Iraq are destroyed by military extremists will appreciate the importance of this question.

Both Heather and Gary had contributed to The Heretic prior to tying the proverbial knot and now we are proud to feature their truly remarkable joint work as Mrs and Mr Osborn. In Hy-Brasil and the Fire Eye of the Goddess, Heather Elizabeth Osborn and Gary Osborn present a fascinating thesis about how a lost island, the mystery of Rendlesham, the Tuatha dé Danaan and the Irish settlement at Tara are all related. Essential reading for all questers of the truth.

David Alan Ritchie has never shied away from controversy and his latest article for The Heretic, an extract entitled The Old King from his sensational new book, is bound to be the most heretical thing you have read in decades, if not ever. What if history did not unfold as we have been told? What if Scotland was the real and original Holy Land?

Nallein Satana Al-Jilwah Sowilo is an amazing woman. Not only is the subject matter of her articles unique, fascinating and bold, but she has written them (this is her second article for The Heretic Magazine) with no internet and no PC, while assisting Yezidis in Iraq. Necromancy of the Sadhus, however, is a fabulous article by any standard and what Nallein shares will enthral you.

Stewart Swerdlow is a legend for those in the know. He was an early mentor of David Icke and remains a brilliant and multi-dimensional subject-area expert on all things Illuminati and alien-race related. In False Flags, Fake History, Bogus Governments Stewart draws from a yet unreleased book of his to shed light in the murky reaches of our shadowy government elite.

Here's the Editor's introduction, from Andrew Gough:

The Heretic Volume 6

The Heretic Volume 6

Our good friends at The Heretic magazine have returned after a bit of a hiatus with Volume 6 of their fantastic electronic publication, and the new issue is chock-full of fascinating content ranging through the fields of alternative history, lost civilisations and technologies, the occult and more.

During their break from publication, editor Andrew Gough and creative director Mark Foster have completely updated the way The Heretic is published, as well as designing a new website that has plenty of fascinating content as well.

Here's a summary of the articles in the new issue:

Richard Stanley and Scarlett Amaris have worked beneath the radar of the mainstream for some time, but that is about to change. In Through a Kaleidoscope Darkly; The Life and Work of Irène Hillel-Erlanger, the authors examine a brilliant young scientist whose invention, the titular ‘kaleidoscope’, enabled him to uncover the hidden nature of the universe.

In The Cat and the Mouse in Ancient Egypt Egyptologist Sofia Aziz makes her Heretic debut with a fascinating and seldom explored study of the cat and mouse in ancient Egyptian society. What she reveals will surprise and even amuse you.

Duncan Burden is no stranger to the mysteries of Freemasonry and, in fact, his extensive research, and experience in the Craft, has enabled him to offer new insights into the ancient society. In A Hidden Message in Freemasonry Duncan offers a fresh new hypothesis into the secrets of Freemasonry that will leave you wondering why no-one has ever noticed it before.

If you are not familiar with the brilliant work of Aaron Cheak PhD, then let The War between Symbolists and Egyptologists: René Schwaller de Lubicz in Egypt, 1936-1951 serve as your introduction. Aaron examines the far-reaching influence of the controversial Egyptologist, and renaissance man, René Schwaller de Lubicz, on artists, academia and the many others who were influenced by his remarkable work and, most tellingly, how this led to our appreciation of ancient temples.

In Mount Sinai Discovered, Heretic regular Ralph Ellis offers an alternative candidate for the elusive location of the biblical Mount Sinai. While rejecting the traditionally accepted site, and the popular alternative belief that Mount Sinai is Jebel al-Madhbah, near Petra, Ralph offers a new, compelling and controversial thesis that just may leave you speechless.

Rev. Father Nathan Montgomery Glover bursts onto the scene with his Heretic debut, All Roads Lead to Constantinople: From Ancient Byzantium to the Tübingen Circle and Beyond – The Heretical Timeline of the True Rose-Croix. So you think you know about the origins and significance of the Rosicrucian order? Think again.

Heretic Editor, Andrew Gough, challenges the conventional notion of Original Sin and travels to the Turkish/Syrian border in search of the truth behind the dogma. What he discovers reveals that the biblical account of the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden may not be what it seems, and that the notion of Original Sin may be a memory of the last Pagan god of the ancient world, the Mesopotamian god, Sin.

In Searching for Lost History from Space Angela Micol recounts her personal journey and challenges, which led to the discovery of a significant and exciting new temple complex in Egypt and how, in the process, her work spawned a whole new genre of research: satellite archaeology.

In The Ark of Isis newlyweds Heather Elizabeth Osborn and Gary Osborn collaborate on more than their recent nuptials and state, ‘The symbology of the Ark is a powerful, archetypal reminder of our forgotten history and ancient past, while also representing our future.’ But that is just the beginning. The symbolism of Ursa Major, ships and water are but a small clue to the authors’ innovative and convincing thesis.

The paintings of Nicolas Poussin have been scrutinised for clues for hundreds of years. Louis XIV obsessed over them, particularly Poussin’s masterpiece, Les Bergers d’Arcadie. He was not the only one. In Poussin’s Arcadian Vision: Search for the Golden Age, author and Rennes-le-Château expert, Guy Patton, explores a new and exciting explanation for the significance of the enigmatic painting.

The Otherworld in the Andes by Freddy Silva is a tour de force of an article, representing years of first-hand research that examines the belief that Peru’s most iconic sacred sites may have been part of a global tradition of secret initiation rituals. This is not to be missed.

Marylyn Whaymand proves there is no substitute for respecting the facts while challenging the dogma. In her thought-provoking article, Who were the Minoans?, Marylyn examines new discoveries, linguistic clues and DNA evidence, before arriving at a tantalising hypothesis.
