Last Show Recap

Ancient Giants/ Occult Quest

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.

Ancient Giants/ Occult Quest

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - October 24, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: James Wasserman, Joe Taylor

In the first half, fossil restorationist Joe Taylor talked about ancient evidence for giants, his creationist views, and the fossils of large creatures. There is data which shows that there were men who were 12 to 15 ft. tall or even taller; these were not people with unusual medical conditions-- they were soldiers buried in their armor, he said, adding that they had six fingers and toes instead of five, and two rows of teeth. According to reports by Native Americans and others, the giants were wicked, and cannibalistic, and Taylor believes they were the 'fallen angels' written about in the Bible. Paleontologists claim the skeletal evidence for giants doesn't exist, and that these large bones actually belonged to animals, he noted.

Taylor found parts of about 30 or 40 mastodons and mammoths in West Texas-- an area that is quite dry now, but when these creatures were alive must have had a lot of foliage to support their herds. In contrast to Darwinists, he's found evidence that man & dinosaur lived at the same time. Further, some dinosaurs still exist in the Amazon jungle, according to witness testimony, he reported. Taylor doubts the accuracy of scientific dating systems such as carbon-14, which can estimate the age of artifacts up to 50,000 years old. He cited that carbon-14 is found in dinosaur bones which are supposed to be millions of years old. He also contended that the Earth is only around 6,000 years old, and that methods of estimating the age of the planet such as through limestone formations are faulty.

----------------------------------------------

In the latter half, author James Wasserman discussed the importance of the spiritual quest, the occult practices of Aleister Crowley, and how awakenings during the 60s and 70s were fueled by the embrace of Eastern religions, and Western Magic. At a young age, Crowley became exposed to mysticism and alchemy, and joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In 1904, he received a book by a direct voice transmission from Aiwass, a representative of the spiritual hierarchy that was supposedly guiding humanity through the next stage of its development, Wasserman detailed. In contrast to claims that Crowley was a practitioner of black magic, he views him as a luminary, and a great seeker and teacher.

The occult is about discovering hidden knowledge about oneself, and sometimes gets a bad rap because there is a secretive aspect to it, Wasserman commented. However, the Beat Generation in the 60s, breaking away from the conformity of the 1950s, helped to bring occult ideas out into the open, he noted. Sharing details from his memoir, Wasserman described his involvement at Samuel Weiser's occult bookstore in New York City, as well as how drugs such as LSD were used to reach altered states of consciousness, and expanded perception.
