  1. Quite simply, anyone who doesn’t use their brains and still claims to be a Christian isn’t reading their source material, closely, and should probably be ignored. That includes doctors. ESPECIALLY Doctors.

    The whole damned latter half of the book is about helping people in unconventional ways and “Love Thy Neighbour” probably extends to the Devil, too.

    Still, it’s interesting to see that a man who had to have Some scientific training and discernment can have biggotted views, like that.

    According to most spiritual handbooks, any action for good or bad “opens you up to demonic influence.” It’s called life, asshole.

  2. George Allen did not deliberately call the man a ‘macaca’ as a pejorative. His repetition of that proves that he had no idea what the name meant. He genuinely and absurdly fucked up his name.

    This is complete nonsense.

  3. I call bullshit on that cat thing, but hey, after some of the shit I’ve seen here who the fuck knows.

  4. That just makes it kind of Sad, then, doesn’t it?

  5. I have never been so drunk that I would hack off my oun wiener, tug on it a bit yes, but hack it off? This guy must have been on some great moonshine combined with coke or something….

  6. Somewhere between the drunk cutting his unit off and the two women attempting to get off with a cat, all I can think of is Dr. Hunter S. Thompson’s description of men in red flannel shirts getting incredible kicks from things I couldn’t possibly understand…

  7. Just wondering if you’d seen this yet. Probably, but I thought it was of interest nonetheless…

    Maine’s version of the Jersey Devil?

  8. Re: Asswipe Allen…

    What’s been conspicuously absent from the press is the fact that “macaca” is a common racial slur used by the colonial French. Surprise– Allen’s mother is a French woman. From Tunisia.

  9. […] There’s something not quite right about this story — the web presence backing this story up is kind of thin: the blog which announces the story is composed of precisely one post, and a link to a podcast which basically reads that blog post aloud. They urge us to buy a book called The King Arthur Conspiracy by one Grant Berkley, whose blog consists of, let me see now, two posts, four days apart, two years ago. The two other pages under the dragon2/dissident heirarchy which Berkley calls home (”Welcome” he says, modestly, “to the most important page on the internet”) are considerably less than inspiring and point to a non-existent Real History site, although I did pick up the Electrum Cross image from here. (There seems to be no background information on Berkley anywhere; apart from the book already mentioned, he is the author of Moses In The Hieroglyphs, published in January this year and co-authored, according to Wilson’s Wikipedia entry, with Wilson and Blackett again – but no reviews, nor even a sales rank – how does that happen?) There’s a site devoted to a guy called Adrian Gilbert, another New Age author, who points to another address, http://www.kingarthur-online.co.uk/ for Wilson and Blackett’s findings. Nothing there, either. Now, I don’t have any problem with the idea that British history isn’t quite what Academia insists that it was — but this story barely exists; I think I could have planted all the material out there in less time than it’s taken me to write this post. If these people have been working on the subject for thirty years, why is there so little evidence in evidence, only defensive bluster about the “academic establishment” ignoring them? Much as we might like these “dissident hostorians” to be really on to something, they aren’t doing their credibility any favours with what’s currently out there.
