I recently received a link to this critique of Richard Hoagland’s occult theories related to Mars: “Hoagland’s and Bara’s Dark Nonsense.” Though I don’t doubt Richard’s sincerity as to his beliefs (spent enough time with him to know he’s truly committed to his ideas — as if his history on that isn’t enough evidence), and can’t really process all his physics ideas, I know non sequiturs when I see them, and the Hiram Key by Knight and Lomas is riddled with them. The whole “Jesus is connected to ancient Egypt” trajectory is cluttered with logical flaws and imaginary evidence, as scholars of all religious persuasions of the New Testament and Egyptology have known for centuries. Any idea using Knight and Lomas is DOA.
