Templar Secrets

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - February 8, 2005
Host: George Noory
Guests: Lionel Fanthorpe, David Grinspoon, Seth Shostak

Author and Anglican Priest Lionel Fanthorpe returned to talk about Knights Templar secrets and the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark may have originally belonged to the Egyptians and it could have had alchemical powers to transform energy into a mysterious "fifth element," he said. It was then taken by Moses, he suggested, and later possibly brought to Ethiopia through the Queen of Sheba, who may have had a son with King Solomon.

Eventually the Ark may have been hidden at Rennes-le-Chateau in France by the Templars. In 1885, Sauniere (mentioned in the novel The Da Vinci Code), an impoverished priest located there, suddenly came into wealth, and Fanthorpe, surmised that he may have discovered the Ark and sold it.

The Templars may have just been the "tip of the iceberg," with their secrets stemming from "ancient guardians" set up by ETs, he posited. But what if these secrets became lost or distorted in some way? asked Fanthorpe. Like a powerful technology, they might do either immense good or harm. The Templars, he said, could have been guarding the artifact itself or perhaps more importantly the "guidebook" for how to use it.

The Hawaii Streak

An animation created by the Night Sky Live project shows a mysterious streak that was captured by their cameras in Hawaii on Dec. 17, 2004. During the first hour, two guests reacted to the streak. First, astronomer Seth Shostak of SETI shared his analysis, suggesting that the object was at least 1,300 miles up and may have been related to a fuel discharge from a launched satellite. Next, planetary scientist David Grinspoon weighed in, commenting that the streak is currently a genuine mystery. While he finds the satellite theory credible, he said "it's not an open and shut case."
