Shakespeare, Jewish? Is That Anti-Semitic?

Emilia Bassano: a Black Jewish Woman Wrote Shakespeare? In his book Shakespeare’s Secret Messiah, Joseph Atwill argues that the Shakespeare plays were written by Emilia Bassano Lanier, who he  believes was secretly Jewish. Emilia’s father, Baptista Bassano, had emigrated to London from Venice to become a musician for the Tudor court. The Bassanos of Italy were Sephardic […]

Mateo Piso Christ, Sun of Jane the Virgin

The rather unlikely premise of the popular CW telenovela series Jane the Virgin is that the hapless Jane Villanueva has been accidentally impregnated at a routine gynecological checkup gone awry, in spite of her best efforts to preserve herself intact for a Catholic wedding. As the story goes, a sperm sample has been taken from the hunky heart-throb Rafael Solano, […]

Titus Andronicus as Elizabethan black propaganda

Readers of this website who have studied Gregory Bateson and the art of black propaganda, or for that matter have understood the Flavians’ purpose in creating the Gospels as a pacifist message to radical Jews, will understand that the perceived bona fides of the information source are crucial to the effectiveness of the message. That is, the […]

Genetics of the Oligarchs: Eloi, or Upstarts?

In H. G. Wells’ classic novel “The Time Machine”, the Time Traveler is translated to the year 802,701 AD.

Deuterium shell game

The introduction to “The Secret of the Three Bullets” (subtitled: “A New Generation of Micro-Nuclear Weapons is on the Battle Field”), by Maurizio Torrealta and Emilio Del Giudice, states that “it is just a novel… told as though it were a figment of the imagination”, and that “it is up to the reader to determine […]

Richard Carrier: meet Barnum & Bailey.

A slogan (attributed apocryphally to PT Barnum) holds that there is no such thing as bad publicity. And it can safely be said that Richard Carrier’s scathing review of Joe Atwill and the Flavian Origins theory of Christianity brings this slogan to mind. At our Postflaviana website, we do not mind returning the favor; as […]

Jerusalem: The Ultimate ‘White Man’s Burden’

In October 1943 (about the same time Bateson was developing the science used to create the counter culture), the Nazi armed forces still reigned supreme over continental Europe. However, on a global scale, Nazi power was rapidly faltering following the Russian victories at Stalingrad and Kursk. The Rommel offensive in North Africa and Egypt had failed in […]

Christianity is Flavian Vanity

In Caesar’s Messiah, Joseph Atwill showed that the Flavian Caesars, Vespasian and Titus, invented Christianity, more or less in the form we know it today. Remarkably, the emperors left behind a veiled confession (or boast) of their work, embedded in the Gospels and the works of Josephus. The religion was invented as wartime propaganda, primarily […]

Meta-historical Manifesto

The hierarchical concentration of wealth and power has been a persistent and fundamental aspect of human social organization. During ancient and medieval times, the powers and privileges of royalty were seen as being ordained by the god(s) du jour, and acclaimed enthusiastically by nearly everyone except a few malcontents. The arts, education, literacy and intellectual […]

Paleolithic Hunter-gatherer Egalitarianism

We begin our story in the Paleolithic era, long before the invention of agriculture or writing. For an understanding of human social organization at that time, we must look to the sciences of anthropology, archaeology and genetics. We argue that the militarization of human civilization may have taken place as a result of a confrontation […]

Indo-European origins of the Flavian system

How and when did hierarchy and militarism begin? The answer can be found in the archaeological record. The historian William Hamblin, writing in “Warfare in the Ancient Near East to 1600 BC”, defines the “military threshold” as “the point at which warfare has essentially become endemic in a region, and at which all peoples in […]

Nuclear Fusion

Because of its potential as a remarkably cheap and abundant source of energy, fusion technology has long held the fascination of nuclear scientists. (The term “Fusion” encompasses a wide variety of nuclear reactions in which small nuclei are driven together to produce larger ones, as opposed to “Fission” in which very heavy nuclei are split […]

Haroche’s Cockroach: A nuclear fusion breakthrough?

This information regarding cold fusion is being presented with great humility, in hopes that more educated and experienced physicists than myself will review my findings, and offer further thoughts or commentary. Muon-Catalyzed Fusion Muon-catalyzed fusion (MCF) is a little-known type of fusion reaction that occurs at ordinary temperatures and pressures. As the name suggests, the […]
