Andrew Jackson Davis: 19th Century Prophet

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Andrew Jackson Davis: 19th Century Prophet

Show Archive
Date: Monday - May 8, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: John DeSalvo, Stanton Friedman

Researcher Dr. John DeSalvo discussed the predictions and spiritualist ideas from 19th century prophet Andrew Jackson Davis, a contemporary of Abraham Lincoln. Davis first tapped into clairvoyance after being "mesmerized" and his first book Principles of Nature was published when he was only 21 in 1847. It featured some of his scientific and medical predictions, which DeSalvo declared to be more accurate than seers such as Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce. Among Davis's statements which proved to be true-- there are nine planets in the solar system (Neptune and Pluto had yet to be discovered at that point), Venus has high mountains of ejected rock, the solar system revolves around another point besides the sun (the center of the galaxy) and electricity will be utilized for a wide variety of purposes.

DeSalvo presented Davis's views about death and the afterlife. Presaging the spiritualist movement, Davis predicted that contact with the spirit world would lead to a new era of communication. When people pass on, he described a spiritual cord (similar to an umbilical cord) which conducts their essence into another realm. The soul makes progress in the afterlife, as a kind of continuation of what we did on Earth, he said. Davis also shared tips for the living in his writings.

During the first portion of the interview, DeSalvo gave an update on the Egyptian pyramids which he has studied extensively. He has heard rumors that secret tunneling is going on at the Great Pyramid at Giza, and that a mysterious black stone slab has been discovered in a previously hidden chamber. In his opinion, such investigations should be done in the open using an international team.

Friedman Update

First hour guest, ufologist Stanton Friedman reacted to the recently revealed UFO study commissioned by the British Ministry of Defence. Only parts of it were classified which suggested to him that the study's authors didn't have access to high level material. Additionally, he noted that they didn't factor in physical trace cases in the formulation of their conclusions.
