  • 22 & 17: the Haunting of Rennes-le-Château

    May 12, 2006

    The legend of Rennes-le-Château is haunted by the reoccurrence of two numbers; 22 and 17. Most frequently, they manifest as important dates in the history of the legend, particularly so with the 17th of January, but this is not always the case. No satisfactory explanation has been given for the occurrence of the two numbers. Are they significant, or merely

  • A Short Explanation of Occam’s Razor

    May 12, 2006

    There are many variations on the definition of Occam’s Razor, a theory named after the 14th century English philosopher, William of Ockham.

    May 5, 2006

    The following has nothing to do with Rennes-le-Château. Or at least it shouldn’t. And it’s true!

    April 17, 2006

    Part of the legend of Rennes-le-Château is the negative, wicked and omnipresent energy that seems to permeate from this part of the Aude valley. Enthusiasts with more receptivity than I to these sorts of things tell me that the energy of the place is staggering. In fact, many are resolute that the energy is the true treasure! So just hold

  • Paranoia at the Chair of the Devil

    April 10, 2006

    Rennes-le-Château never disappoints. On my last visit, I stumbled across Michael Beignet and the NBC Dateline film crew, as well as a lovely lady from Gloucester, England, who is an ascended master from the future operating in the 10th chakra, capable of reading the Akashic record and speaking to dead Abbes. And that was in the first 15 minutes of
