Episode #026 - Gods and Aliens

In this episode we discuss gods and aliens and the ideas surrounding Ancient Astronaut Theory. Do you believe in extra-terrestrials? Do you think they visited and helped ancient human civilizations? Are you a supporter of Ancient Astronaut Theory? If your answer is a resounding YES, then this episode is not for you, because I take a look into some of the propositions made by Ancient Astronaut Theorists and offer my thoughts on the matter which may not jive with you and your alien putty, but do not worry there is always Stonehenge!

Later in the episode, I discuss the only alien abduction case I have helped with as a paranormal investigator. Hear the details as I share my diagnosis and methods of addressing the issue in my effort to help a friend. In A Corner in the Occult we learn about Lam, Aleister Crowley’s favorite martian, as well as the Typhonian Order which focuses on working and communication with extra-terrestrial entities, The Great Old Ones, as well as some of the darker aspects of metaphysics.

We hear a track from our featured artist and future guest Alka, an electronic music composer who incorporates magick, occultism, and estoric practices and systems into his music making process. We discuss evocation in the Essence of Magick. I read listener email and talk about James Randi. We see which two lucky listeners won copies of Etched Offerings, and to close we ponder the origin of deity. This episode is really out of this world!

  1. Great show Mr. Orapello!! I really enjoyed it. I thought you made some great points about the Alien Astronaughts. I know I always thought why give the credit for the ancient structures to anyone else but us? Why couldn't humans build those? As to if there are aliens, well, its a big universe. I'm just not so sure if "they" have been here.

  2. Thanks! I couldn't agree more! Glad you enjoyed it :-)

  3. As someone who read Von Daniken's work as it was first published (you do the math) I've long been entertained by all the tidbits of tantalizing trivia and more particularly the archaeological evidence which such publications manage to dig up. Even more entertaining is the link being made by some conspiracy theorists between such aliens, demons including the devil and the new world order which stories now fashionably include the term interdimensional where ever possible.

    Of course all of this stuff is merely simplistic pap designed to keep the curious well distracted from the paradoxical truth which exists simultaneously as both altogether obvious yet impossibly complex. Then we can ask, designed by who?
