PostSubject: Voodoo Histories   Fri May 15, 2009 5:35 pm

I only just heard the "Start of the Week" episode interviewing the author of this new book. After "Counter-Knowledge" by Damian Thompson I was hungry for more books debunking con-theos and, more importantly, looking at the psychology of conspiricists and the viral nature of their spreading. This book really sounds like it fits the bill!

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Voodoo-Histories-Conspiracy-Shaping-History/dp/0224074709/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1242397823&sr=8-1

As I have said before, we have any number of books written by top intellectuals questioning junk science in its many different guises, but very few addressing the equally insidious problem of pseudohistory. "Counter-Knowledge" did a great job, but we need to go further and there needs to be more work out there before this stuff starts becoming a really serious matter.

This is a book written by the long lost relative of Geoff and Dennis Thompson scratch They were all secretly separated by the NWO in a conspiracy involving aliens from out of space alien and the freemasons study

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Counterknowledge-Surrendered-Conspiracy-Theories-Medicine/dp/1843546760/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1242398147&sr=1-1

The interesting thing is that Damian Thompson is the editor-in-chief of the Catholic Herald. I know moderate theologians still confuse the more Dawkins-esque side of our movement, but nevertheless they still make up the majority of our population and, for me, every Catholic who rejects ID is a good sign.
