In the middle two hours, researcher and writer on the subject of ancient mysteries, Adrian Gilbert, discussed the legacy of objects such as the the Stone of Destiny, and the Ark of the Covenant, as well as delved into stargates and prophecy. According to legend, the Stone of Destiny (which currently is displayed at Edinburgh Castle in Scotland) was originally the stone that the biblical prophet Jacob slept on when he had a dream about angels going up and down a ladder. The stone seems to have ominous properties, said Gilbert, comparing it to the Spear of Destiny, which was said to have pierced Jesus Christ.
When the Stone of Destiny was in Ireland, it was said to cry out when the right person stood on it who was meant to be King (though Gilbert conjectured it was probably the people nearby who were crying out). While some relics themselves may not be magical, they can make a link or connect someone to a saint, prophet, or holy person associated with them, he commented. Regarding the Ark of the Covenant, he doubts that the wood object still survives. Because it was covered with gold leaf, when sunlight hit it, it may have given off a strong electrostatic charge, which would account for its unusual properties, he theorized.
Gilbert spoke about stargates, which he characterized as specific places in the sky that act as time-markers for the long cycle known as the precession of the equinoxes. We are currently at the end of one cycle, which has been designated by the Mayan calendar, he noted. He believes that the "opening" of the stargate on 12/21/12 will herald a catastrophic war in the Middle East, and events foreseen in the Book of Revelation.
The last hour of the show featured Open Lines.
First hour guest, entrepreneur Ron Cutler shared business techniques and advice to help those interested in changing their lives. He suggested that in creating one's own business, a person should look for needs that aren't being met, have a unique selling proposition-- something that makes your idea stand out, and be able to learn from failures. Cutler also talked his own successful career path, syndicating radio comedy content.
Pictured is a replica Stone of Destiny, which is also known as the Stone of Scone. The ancient object, which has been thought to have magical powers, is now located in Scotland, but according to legend, the early Kings of Ireland were crowned at the stone. More here.
