Viral Mythology

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - February 1, 2014
Host: George Knapp
Guests: Larry Flaxman, Marie D. Jones, Brian Tuohy

Behind every myth and legend, hidden within the art, song and structure of ancient times is an encoded layer of wisdom, science and truth passed down throughout history. Paranormal researchers Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman joined George Knapp to examine information that went "viral" long before the Internet, and later served as the foundation for mythology, sacred architecture and symbolic imagery throughout the ancient world. Ideas have been embedded in art since primitive times, Jones explained, noting how cave paintings, ceramics, statues and symbols conveyed important information to audiences prior to the written word.

Important messages were also transmitted through oral traditions, Flaxman added, pointing out that campfire stories changed as they were passed along from person to person. According to Jones, ancient stories about seemingly mythological characters share common motifs and are likely based on real events that became fictionalized through time. Knowledge was embedded in these stories, she said. The two spoke about a concept called 'cosmic cloud computing' which proposes the existence of an archetypal grid from which our ancestors tapped into information. This could explain how similar concepts, such as the Golden Rule, showed up in different cultures at the same time, Jones proposed.

Flaxman suggested that the Golden Rule, pi and other sacred numbers may have been shared with humanity by another intelligence. He also covered "archeoenigmas," or artifacts that seem to be out of place and time, such as an ancient object that appears to be spark plug embedded in piece of coal and a watch-type device dating back to the Precambrian period.

Sports Conspiracies

In the first hour, sports conspiracist Brian Tuohy shared his contention that the outcomes of professional sports events are fixed. The leagues manipulate games to generate more fan interest and better television ratings so revenue will increase, he suggested. The bigger problem, however, involves mob-controlled sports betting which Tuohy estimated at several tens of billions of dollars annually. "Organized crime and gamblers have gotten to athletes, have gotten to referees, and got them to fix games and shave points," he revealed, noting that evidence of this conspiracy can be found in FBI documents he obtained from his FOIA requests.
