Key to the Sacred Pattern

Grail Seeker's Media Watch for the Week Ending 20 Jan 07

On Audio:

Dreamlands had an interview on the 13th with Christopher Jones, the lad that translated Otto Rahn’s book about the Templars, Cathars, and the Catholic Church (see the In Print section below) Good thing you can catch these on a pod cast.

This one will be good. On Monday 22 Jan 07; Coast to Coast AM will have Andrew Sinclair and Mark Pinkham on talking about Rosslyn Chapel. I wouldn’t miss this one.

On TV:

The History Channel is showing the Lost Worlds: Knights Templar show and Digging for the Truth - The Da Vinci Code: Bloodlines; Sunday 21 Jan 07 starting at 7pm EST

And on Tuesday 30 Jan 07; there’s Lost Worlds: Braveheart’s Scotland at 8pm EST.

On the Web:

Farshores reprints an article on 25 Dec 06 about some different theories about Oak Island from the First National News.

Why the Southern Poverty Law Center would have an article on conspiracies and the Catholic Church is beyond me. But, it is a good article..

In the News:

Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh take another stab at their lawsuit against Dan Brown in the English court system.

The Shiners come under fire from for misuse of their tax exempt status. I wish when people do pieces like this they would name specifics instead of listing general charges. Read critically.

The Baltimore Sun has a profile on Brent Morris the author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Freemasonry

Since the theme this week seems to be Freemasonry, the British Telegraph takes a look at what the real secret is of Masonry.

Out of the copious good-byes to Robert Anton Wilson, I think I enjoyed this one the most.

While not directly related to the Grail, Napoleon’s death has been ruled stomach cancer rather than poisoning. This puts to rest some historical conspiracy theories about the little man’s death.

In Print:

I’m a little slow on this one, but if you haven’t heard in October Otto Rahn’s work Crusade Against the Grail has been translated into English. This one is for those of you looking for information about the Nazis and the Grail.

Tip Site of the Week:

Microsoft Live Maps Not to be one upped by Google, Bill Gates has put Microsoft’s spin on a bird’s eye view of the world. There are very few differences between this mapping system and Google Earth. The interfaces are similar and I can’t tell too much difference in the 3D map features. The Microsoft version does seem to bookmark places a little easier than Google Earth. Oh well, it’s an alternative if Google Earth’s servers are down.
