Hal Lindsey, in his recent book The Everlasting Hatred: The Roots of Jihad, writes about what he perceives as an ancient fight-to-the-death conflict between Judeo-Christian and Islamic orders. In an essay on his website, titled The Islamic Mindset, he comments that the US needs to realize "how official Muslim clerics think, or we will perish under nuclear rubble." According to Lindsey, many of these clerics preach that the US and the West are "The Great Satan," and the supreme enemy of Islam. "A nuclear-armed Muslim suicide bomber who kills a few million 'infidels' would be considered among the highest pantheon of Muslim martyrs," Lindsey continues. Though he doesn't believe that all Muslims are our enemies, he says there is particular danger from Muslim men between the ages of 18 to 45. Lindsey advocates the profiling of Muslims and Mosques in the US. "If this is done prudently," he writes, "it will verify who are our Muslim friends are who are our enemies." --L.L.
In an article posted on William Henry's website, he ruminates on the coming of Planet X, which he says the Sumerians referred to as "The Lord." The planet was inhabited by what the Bible called the "Shining Ones," Henry says, and he speculates that these beings had access to mind boggling technologies. "They operated a (star) gateway linking Heaven and Earth. They genetically altered the human body
to operate in this gateway.
They could create weapons of mass destruction and advanced human beings," he writes. Henry connects this stargate or wormhole with the "fiery furnace" of Solomon's Temple written about in the Bible. Sumerian scholar Zecharia Sitchin has also analyzed depictions of what may be this temple/gateway. "Buried deep beneath the sands of Iraq are the secrets of the Shining Ones of Planet X," Henry writes, adding that he thinks Saddam is well aware of such treasures. The return of the roaming planet "centers on the recovery of a technology once housed at Solomon's Te

Benjamin Creme, tonight's guest, first began presenting messages from Maitreya, the "World Teacher," in public forums in 1977. He says that Maitreya had spent the last 2,000 years in a "body of light" at a retreat in the Himalayas, but has now resurrected in a physical form that he "self-created" and that he lives and works in London.
As we kick-off another Friday night of Open Lines, here is a fascinating email to ponder. It comes from Sarah in Anchorage, Alaska: I'm forty years old now, and back in my early twenties, I died as a result of a misdiagnosed condition, and wrongly prescribed medication. I was 'gone' for a few minutes apparently, but was brought back by some very capable paramedics. Although I had an 'out of body experience', I don't want to go into that here, as it is the transformation I underwent, which led to my ability to have 'visions', that I want to discuss, as it pertains to the future of our country. Not long after my near death experience, I began having dreams that were unlike any I had experienced before, and if these dreams were 'recurring', they virtually always came true. As I said, this began in my twenties, and in those days, I lived in New Mexico-- I dreamed of everything from the mundane, to people dying, and about ninety five percent of the time, my visions were very accur
Tonight's guest, Richard Lawrence, co-wrote the book Contacts With the Gods from Space, with the late Dr. George King, which details King's amazing legacy of extraterrestrial contacts. Born in Shropshire, England in 1919, King became an adept practitioner of yoga as a young man, spending hours each day in the activity. But in 1954, sitting in his London apartment he suddenly heard a disembodied voice that commanded him: "Prepare yourself! You are to become the voice of Interplanetary Parliament." It was an alien intelligence he would come to know as Aetherius. A few days later King received a visit from a famed Yoga master who entered and left through a locked door. The master reportedly taught King to establish a mental rapport with the "Cosmic Masters."
Tonight's guest Douglas Mulhall writes that there is often a thin line between science and science-fiction in a recent article he penned for The Futurist . In fact, he says that a number of things that he had posited for the future had already come to pass by the time his book, Our Molecular Future, hit the shelves. Among those developments were:Super-strong building materials---aerogels that use nanotechnology Malaria genomes--- may lead to lifesaving vaccine Nanobacteria discovery--- suggesting heart disease may be treatable infection AI computers--- beating stockbrokers at their own game "These leaps constitute the kernels of a new molecular economy," Mulhall writes. But the problem with such fast flying future developments is that there is sometimes a public backlash against them due to fears of the new and untested. But "the rationale for proceeding with such risky technologies," Mulhall explains, "may to be to win the race against nature's next onslaught
Tonight's guest Joyce Riley has called attention to the dangers of vaccines. In an article posted on her website, Vexing over Vaccines, Dr. Alan Cantwell Jr. points to a number of alarming issues surrounding their usage. He also details information about the production of vaccines that many people may not be aware of. For instance, in order to develop vaccines, the strains are often grown on animal parts like monkey kidneys and chicken embryos or human cell lines derived from cancer cells.This can potentially lead to contamination and/or the introduction of animal viruses into the human population. In fact many believe that the AIDS virus may have been brought into the gay community by an experimental hepatitis B vaccine that was widely targeted to men in that group in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York from 1978-1981. It has also been posited that HIV in Africa originated from a polio vaccine that was contaminated with chimp and monkey viruses. While the debate o
As I walked home last night I was surprised to see a large telescope planted on a city street. A courtesy of the Sidewalk Astronomers, they refer to their mission as "urban guerilla astronomy." It was a kick to see the fine details of a lunar crater even as the noise and lights of the city surrounded me. Does the world seem a little crazier when the moon turns full as it is doing tonight? Lunar effects have been tied to increases in such things as homicide rates, births, casino payouts, psychiatric admissions, traffic accidents and suicides. Though numerous studies have found little statistical evidence to back-up these assertions, there remains an intuitive sense that tells youyes, things do get a bit wilder on the night of a full moon. Hey, that's when all the lunatics come out! Though full moon wildness may be more mythic than factual, there is some evidence that lunar cycles can have an effect in such areas as fishing, hunting and agriculture. Some pagans and Wiccans b
Tonight's guest Vendyl Jones and his Institute have been involved in archaeological excavations in the state of Israel. Recently, evidence has surfaced that there was once a Greek temple in the city of Dor, which is on Israel's Mediterranean coast.The area, which has been home to eight civilizations dating back 3,000 years, may have had a Greek presence around the seventh century BCE. The latest Biblical Archaeology Review analyzed the finds from a dig there. "Especially tantalizing was
a huge clay mask, much larger than an ordinary human face. All that was preserved however, was a gigantic eye, with an eyebrow and part of the forehead," wrote Ephraim Stern. Eventually other pieces were located and found to form the heads of two Gorgons. Gorgons are well known in Greek mythology (most famously Medusa) and have typically been depicted as monstrous beings with snakes for hair, fang-like teeth, and their tongues sticking out. In Greek culture representations of the Gorgon on s
Tonight's guest Dannion Brinkley was one of the first to bring attention to the "near death" experience (NDE). In the ensuing years since the publication of his book "Saved by the Light," numerous other accounts have arisen from people who returned to life after being clinically dead for a certain period of time. One such person was Pam Reynolds who appeared on Coast in December of 2001 and impressed Art Bell with her story. Reynolds underwent a drastic surgical operation known as "standstill" which involved stopping her heart, freezing her body and draining all the blood from it. During the procedure Reynolds' perspective changed such that she was looking down on her body. But then her attention turned to a light above her. "I had to look up to see it. I can't really say it was in the ceiling. Because it's as if everything faded away and there was no ceiling
I had a physical sensation right over my belly button. You know the feeling when you go over a hill really fast or you'r
Tonight's guest, Dr. Roger Leir, has yielded some rather interesting results from his implant removals. Long a staple of UFO/abduction lore, implants recently figured in as a plot point in Taken the mega mini-series that aired last month on the Sci-Fi Channel. In the series, implants were explained as the method the aliens use to keep tabs on abductees. While the jury still may be out ET implants, it seems that our government has had the technology to create and use "intracerebral implants" since the late 1950s. A device known as the "stimoceiver," implanted via the nasal cavity, can receive andtransmit electronic signals, and has been used in experiments on animals and humans. Invented by Dr. Jose Delgado ,it was found that through electronic stimulation of the brain, theexperimenter could induce emotions and behavior, controlling to a large degree the subject's responses. It is alleged that these devices havealso been used to induce a hypnotic state through radio wave
Beyond your garden variety nightmare, lie a breed of especially horrifying dream related experiences. Why, you could lose sleep just thinking about them! Here's a look at three such states.
Tonight's guest, James Arthur, believes that certain plant substances which alter human consciousness helped our species to evolve. The renowned thinker and American shaman, the late Terence McKenna also hypothesized about this.
Tonight's guest, Father Andrew Wingate, was acquainted with the late Jesuit priest (and beloved Coast guest) Malachi Martin. In fact he even assisted him on one of his exorcisms. The documented practice of exorcism dates back to the time of Jesus and was frequently mentioned in the New Testament.
Tonight's guest, Harry Braun, is an expert on renewable energy such as hydrogen. Fuel cells can be made to produce clean energy derived from hydrogen. But to use hydrogen on a widespread scale as a clean fuel and power source, the stumbling block has been how to find cost-effective methods.
Tonight's guest Bart Sibrel is one of a number of individuals who believes the 1969 moon landing was staged. While the debate continues on this controversial assertion, the moon itself has been the subject of a number of mysterious reports over the years.
Claude Vorilhon, a former race-car driver and journalist, encountered a harmonious 4-ft-tall space alien while climbing volcanic rocks in France in 1973. The being said he came from a distant planet and had long dark hair and almond shaped eyes.
Tonight's guest Richard C. Hoagland has had a long standing fascination with Mars, believing the planet contains evidence of previous civilizations. While this is a hotly debated topic, one thing is for sure. Mars is getting ready for its close-up. By late August of this year, it will be the closest it's been to Earth in 73,000 years! As the Red Planet moves in, it will be growing steadily brighter and larger in the sky. And by the time August 27th rolls around, it will be literally millions of miles closer to us than it is now. Mars will appear six times larger and 85 times brighter, and be outshone in the night sky by only Venus and the moon. According to Space.com, Mars comes into "opposition" every 26 months, when the Sun, Earth and Mars form a straight line. But this time around, because Mars is as close to the Sun as it ever gets on its orbit, it will be extraordinarily close to us. Just think the last time, Mars appeared like this in the sky, Neanderthals may hav
