Book Reviews

Book review: 14th December 2010 Suite 101
An in-depth biographical exploration of the character known as Yahweh, Allah or simply Lord, seeks to uncover and evaluate who or what He was.

Few books have been written about God that are not specifically theistic or atheistic in nature, and beyond these traditions of belief and disbelief, scant attention has ever been paid to the personal history of God from a standpoint outside the Bible –

Interview: 6 November 2003 Nexus Magazine
When gold and platinum-group metals are transformed into the monatomic state, a fine white powder is produced. This substance was used by pharaohs and kings of the ancient world. It was also part of the secret knowledge of mediaeval alchemy and the Knights Templar.

Solomon, Knights Templar & White Gold - interview on Coast to Coast AM.

Date:   02-18-08
Host:   George Noory
Open Interviews Below

Historian Laurence Gardner traced the connections between King Solomon & his Temple, the Knights Templar, the Ark of the Covenant, Free Masonry, and White Powder Gold. Solomon, who lived around 1,000 BC, built the first temple of Jerusalem, set an example for 'kingship,' and was thought to have stocked his temple with treasures. The Temple changed hands over the years, and eventually became an Islamic mosque, Gardner noted.

The Knights Templar, a kind of ambassadorial military unit, conducted excavations at the Temple during the first Crusades. When they returned to Europe in 1128, they became a powerful knightly order, made wealthy by the treasures they had brought back from Jerusalem, he detailed.

The Ark of the Covenant, according to the Bible, was used as a kind of high-tech weapon during wars. The magical White Powder Gold or manna along with the Ark, suggest the ancient Hebrews had an advanced science. It was the knowledge of these ancient secrets that the Free Masons once had but lost, back in the 1700s, Gardner explained. Research on White Powder Gold and monoatomic elements begun in the 1980's, has revealed a number of unusual properties such as levitation, and possible applications in medicine and energy, he added.

Planets Everywhere

In the second half of the first hour, physicist James McCanney commented on new findings which suggest there could be a multitude of rocky Earth-like planets in our galaxy. With new telescopes being able to view other solar systems, he predicted that we'll eventually see comets forming planets in these systems.

There may be hundreds, if not thousands of undiscovered planet-sized objects in the far reaches of our own solar system too, he suggested.

Da Vinci Code Roundtable - interview on Coast to Coast AM.

Date:  05-29-06
Host:  George Noory

Scholars of ancient manuscripts and legends, Laurence Gardner, William Henry, and Glenn Kimball shared their reactions to the ideas presented in The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown's popular book which was recently turned into a movie. Gardner commented that in Brown's novel there is a murkiness blending fact and fiction, and that he is definitely wrong in stating some items as factual in his introduction - such as details about the Priory of Sion.

The three guests concurred with the theory that Jesus married Mary Magdalene. This is not what has been traditionally taught, so the revelation upsets the church hierarchy, said Gardner. Yet Kimball commented that every nun considers herself to be a "bride of Jesus." As evidence for the marriage, Gardner cited the New Testament's description of Mary Magdalene's anointing of Jesus' feet with oil. This was a long-standing wedding ritual, he said. Kimball believes Jesus and Mary had several children, including a daughter named Sarah (though this name was really a title that meant princess, rather than her actual first name).

Henry praised Dan Brown's work for posing valuable questions and bringing Gnostic thought to the masses. He suggested that the bloodline of Mary and Jesus may have faced persecution because they held a higher type of consciousness that threatened the church's authority. The church sought to quash the secret knowledge of transforming an ordinary human into a being of light, explained Henry.

Hamid Mir Update

First half-hour guest, journalist Hamid Mir spoke from Pakistan about his interviewing of Osama bin Laden in 2001. He said he is 100% certain that bin Laden is still alive. Mir also shared his conclusions that Al-Qaeda operatives have obtained Russian suitcase nukes which have been smuggled into the U.S. However, according to his investigations, Al-Qaeda only plans to use these weapons if they have "solid justification" i.e. as a retaliatory measure.

Holy Grail & Da Vinci Code - interview on Coast to Coast AM.

Date:  05-10-05
Host:  George Noory
Guests:   William Henry, Laurence Gardner, Robert Trombley

Investigative mythologist William Henry & historian Laurence Gardner joined in a discussion about Holy Grail mysteries and how they relate to theories in the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. As in that book, both Gardner and Henry contend that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and had children with her. Their bloodline, is what some consider to be the Holy Grail.

Gardner offered a critiqued of the Da Vinci Code, suggesting that some of the material presented as fact in the fiction work, were less than entirely accurate. For instance, he said the notion that Da Vinci encoded his paintings with hidden allegorical messages, while true, was more evident in certain works that Brown didn’t cite. Gardner also explained how Jesus likely survived the crucifixion. Historically, he said, it could take up to two weeks for people to die when nailed to a cross and additionally the idea of Jesus' resurrection was not compiled until the 4th century.

During Hour 2, Henry appeared solo and chatted about the Annunaki and ancient stargates, one of which may have resided in Iraq. He mentioned he is working on a new book about the symbolism of Atlantis, and theorized that in the center of Atlantis there could have been a vortex/stargate that became lost when the continent was submerged. Interestingly, he noted that the purpose of the human body may be to function as a "ladder or stairway into heaven."

The Lost Ark & Gold Powder - interview on Coast to Coast AM.

Date:  11-25-03
Host:  George Noory
Guests:   Laurence Gardner, Stan Deyo, Holly Drennan Deyo

Author and historian Laurence Gardner returned to Coast on Tuesday night, for a follow-up discussion of his book, Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark, which has been optioned to serve as the basis for a Hollywood film by Living Element Pictures. Gardner said he was pleased with the idea of "moving his academic work into mainstream entertainment."

The Ark could have been the ultimate "weapon of mass destruction" in its day, said Gardner who added that he believed the 1.5 ton pure gold object could store and release massive amounts of electrical voltage. Its location was last recorded in 1307 by the Knights Templar, he said.

Gardner also spoke extensively about the white gold powder, an exotic matter which has been associated with various unusual properties, such as levitation. He suggested that it acts like a "super conductor" and is composed of "light waves." The compound has been associated with DNA repair in one study, and could be potentially applied to cure diseases he said. An Arizona farmer, David Hudson, has become involved in employing the substance in such a manner, but its usage has not been without controversy. Gardner has set up a special page on his site which lists reputable companies that sell variations of this product.

Disaster Preparedness Tuesday's first hour guests, preparedness experts Stan & Holly Deyo discussed the location of safe places in the US in the event of natural or manmade disasters. While volcanic eruptions and solar flares are concerns, terrorist attacks in the US are a "real and present danger," said Stan.

The Deyos pointed out that 3.5 million Americans live within a 10-mile radius of a nuclear reactor, which could be the target of the next attack. They also speculated that a terrorist attack could be timed to take place after the US has been hit by a natural disaster, in order to take advantage of the country's increased vulnerability.

Ancient Secrets - interview on Coast to Coast AM.

Date:  06-17-03
Host:  George Noory
Guests:   William Henry, Laurence Gardner

Delving into mythic and historical enigmas were authors William Henry & Laurence Gardner who made a joint appearance on Tuesday night's show. Among the topics discussed was the Holy Grail which "has many attributes," said Gardner, explaining that it wasn't just a particular physical object, but a concept that represented the "ultimate quest."

William Henry expounded on the Blue Stones, which he believes the "stargate" gods of Sumeria once possessed. These stones, he suggested, could have transformative powers, altering humans so they would be capable of traveling through a stargate or wormhole. Possible evidence of these stones was gleaned on their recent Holy Grail Pilgrimage in France, where Henry said he saw Egyptian mummy cases at the Louvre that had blue stones attached.

A corollary to the stones is the "white powder," a substance derived from gold, which Laurence has been studying. Lore about it dates back to the earliest times, yet it is currently being experimented with for nuclear and astrophysics applications, Gardner said. It's also said to possess anti-aging properties and Gardner revealed that he has recently begun to ingest it. The website subtleenergies.com has information on one variant of this powder.

Mysterious White Powder - interview on Coast to Coast AM.

Date:  03-12-03
Host:  George Noory
Guests:   Laurence Gardner

"History is full of facts but not necessarily full of truths," said Laurence Gardner an esteemed historian, genealogist and author who was the guest on Wednesday's show. Delving back into ancient times, Gardner has sifted through arcane sources to reach an astonishing conclusion. He believes that a mysterious white powder was known to the Egyptians, Babylonians and Israelites and was used to power the Ark of the Covenant, which he suggests was a potent battlefield weapon. This white powder was derived from gold and had "magical and exotic properties," Gardner said.

He posited that the powder was taken internally by the Pharaohs and that it increased their perceptions and longevity. "These substances would change the physical being of the person," Gardner said, adding that they may have actually started to glow. That is why "they call them the shining ones," he added. The magical powder called "mfkzt" was also associated with levitation and superconductivity.

Gardner believes this formulation is the same as the elemental substance that was discovered in modern times called Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Element (ORME). This material could have applications in everything from medicine to fuel cell technology. It's "the ultimate key," said Gardner "with routes to the macrocosm in terms of space technology and the microcosm in terms of nanotechnology."
