I’m too busy playing video games to do a Thursday post

So instead go check out this new MMO under development by Funcom (the folks who brought us the Age of Conan MMO). Set in the modern world, it’s based on the premise that, besides the everyday world we all know, a Secret World of demons, monsters,  and shadowy secret societies and conspiracies exists and exerts a very real influence on the “real” world. You can read more about it, from folks who know more about it than I do, at Kotaku here, here, and here. … Read entire article »

A chicken in every NOT!

(a “because its Thursday” special) So, Oprah Winfrey recently ended her “21 day vegan challenge” and decided to cap it all off by buying everyone chicken from KFC. I’m not even going to point out the obvious “WTF?” factor in this action. I’m not vegan by a long shot. As a dedicated omnivore, I’ve no intention of giving up my cheese or the occasional hamburger. But my girlfriend is a vegan chef, and a very talented one at that (food photos here, NOM NOM), and so eating vegan at most of my meals is not only NOT a big deal, I frankly don’t “miss” anything. And I’m sure someone of Oprah’s resources had the best of ingredients at her disposal as well. Maybe she really was craving chicken after her 3 meat-free … Read entire article »

Raelian’s Israeli “orgy for world peace” cancelled

I found this item about those crazy Raelians on Huffington Post thanks to Chez Pazienza over at Deus Ex Malcontent. For those not familiar with the Raelians, they are a saucer cult founded by French race car test-driver turned spiritual guru Claude Vorilhon. The Raelian ideology is the standard ancient astronaut world seeding theory, with heaping dollops of late 60s and early 70s free love, and generically spiritual “war is bad” platitudes. They have been in the news most recently for their support of, and claim that they had succeeded in, human cloning. Vorilhon, who currently goes by the name Rael and claims to be the son of an earthly mother of an extraterrestrial father, founded his religion after an alleged close encounter in 1973 where he met his father … Read entire article »

Oooo Hooo Witchy Woman

That last post about Sarah Palin’s involvement with Pastor Thomas Muthee got a lot of us talking about witchcraft, the ongoing belief in, and fear of, witches in various parts of the world, and the consequences of mob rule and even legislating faith and morality. I’ve recently been reading “Passport to Magonia” and I’m sure the various writings of Jacques Vallee, no doubt, could place this in a greater historical context than I could hope to do in a simple blog post. The fact remains though, that occurrences that most of us would attribute to happenstance, coincidence, or, if it were something truly spectacular, maybe even to UFOnauts or extra-dimensionals, are still interpreted as witchcraft by others (and not just in far off, exotic locales like Kenya, although reports from Africa are … Read entire article »

Witches, Preachers, and Politicians, Oh My!

I’ve been labeled a politico in the past. I’ve been villified by readers who labeled me a “Godless liberal” and a “conservative fundamentalist mouthpiece”, for the same article on the seperation of church and state. I was even fired from my first newspaper job for writing anti-pollution editorials. With Anomaly Magazine though I’ve tried to stay away from politics, leaving that territory on this site to my more political and conspiracy minded compatriots. (A notable exception being my last post, on the arrests of protesters at the RNC in Minneapolis, because there are some impositions on our liberties that just can not go ignored.) I don’t expect to be making any partisan pleas anytime soon. But a recent article from the TimesOnline , tying Palin’s success in her bid for the governorship of Alaska … Read entire article »

Suspicious Death of Scientology Critic Shawn Lonsdale

For those not familiar with the history of the Church’s criminal activities (including the “single largest infiltration of the United States government in history“ orchestrated in the UK by David Gaiman, father of The Sandman comics creator Neil Gaiman) and the past and current activism against them, you should know that Scientology is waging global war against Psychiatry and the world’s Goyim whom the church wants to eliminate. So why would this devoted anti-Scientologist activist suddenly commit suicide in such a bizarre and suspicious way so soon after the largest world-wide campaign gained public attention? [youtube]dwTDvfjcUJU[/youtube] Video excerpt above from BBC documentary about Scientology featuring Lonsdale. Excerpt below from He endured death threats and smear campaigns. He worked for a brief time in his younger days as a male prostitute, and … Read entire article »
