About a thousand years ago, maybe a little more, the Northmen under the nominal leadership, perhaps even fictional, of Vladimir the Great were persuaded to accept Christianity. With that ended all great military opposition in the West to a concoction of a religion designed to domesticate the human race through social engineering. The ensuing carnage upon the unorganized and unarmed peasantry was both ruthless and calculated to produce a new type of human, a capon. Capons, an ignoble ending for once proud Roosters, are bred as a delicacy. Never has the upper echelons, the true initiates of Roman Catholicism, ever believed one word of their own dogma, that is for the capons. They have never forgotten the old gods, drinkers of blood and devourers of souls, for which they have fashioned their capons. It was the French poet Charles Baudelaire who first said the devil’s greatest trick was convincing people he did not exist. That may be so, but it was the pope’s greatest trick convincing people that the devil was god…
I always thought I was crazy, but I wasn’t, till I found out I was sane.
“In the period right after high school we would have parties at John’s parent’s home. His mother and father would frequently be gone for a week at a time on cruises to Watch Hill in their boat. It was at these party’s that I became aware that evil is a conscious presence with its own agenda, a disembodied intelligence separate from the incarnate beings through which it manifests itself.
To let it into you, to surrender to it with complete abandon, to let it take you where it will, is a primordial pleasure that nothing in this world has to offer. I remember floating through a drug induced haze and feeling a smug sensation of approval as people and events streamed passed me in a blasphemous parade.
Someone was having violent sex with Johns golden haired little sister’s friend in the dingy on the back lawn. Her shrieking was drowned out by Frank Zappa singing: It Can’t Happen Here, through no less than a dozen oversized speakers. I didn’t understand exactly what it all meant back then, but it all seemed so right. The song and the music were a disjointed and seemingly confused acid trip, synchronized with the hallucinogens I had ingested. Zappa kept repeating “I remember tutu” and incoherently describing the quintessential suburban family that has no worries in the world because “it can’t happen here.”
Zappa shouts out to Kansas, Minnesota, and Washington DC, derisively assuring them that it can’t happen here, not in the suburbs; “But.”
Jim was shirtless, flexing his huge muscles in the full length mirror propped up on the floor of the weight room that John had set up in the adjacent attic. He was bellowing like an animal with a weird light illuminating his Nazi blue eyes.
Frank Zappa continued ranting mockingly from the stereo accompanied by John now singing along as he laughed hysterically. John was still laughing when he looked at me with an eerie red light illuminating his face as he sang along with Zappa.
“Plastic folks, you know
It won’t happen here
You’re safe, mama (No no no)
You’re safe, baby
(No no no)
You just cook a tv dinner (No no no)
And you make it / Bop bop bop (No no no)
Oh, we’re gonna get a tv dinner and cook it up (No no no no no no no!)
Oh, get a tv dinner and cook it up
Cook it up
Oh, and it won’t happen here
Who could imagine
That they would freak out in the suburbs! (No no no no no no no no no no
Man you guys are really safe
John was hysterical now gesturing next door as he mimed “They had a swimming pool.” (36)
Next door was the former residence of the Defeo family, dead for four years at the time. The place is now known to the world as the Amityville Horror House. I don’t remember if they had a swimming pool. But I do remember hanging out in the kitchen with John who was sweet on Allison Defeo. We were about twelve or thirteen. Mrs Defeo was cooking TV dinners for Allison and her little brothers. She had asked John and me if we wanted one.
We had all attended Catholic school together. All of us; John, myself, Allison and her older sister Dawn were like one big happy family under the venomous tutelage of the Dominican nuns.
A year or two later the whole town knew John was at the bottom of those murders. He had even been caught lying to the police, telling them he heard their dog barking at the time of their deaths. John had soured on the Defeos after his father and Defeo Sr. had almost got into it on the front lawn, with Defeo a supposed Mafia hit man, making threats to John’s father.
This party took place four years after the murders and John had just been attacked in town by a crazed hippy friend of Butch, the only surviving member of the Defeo family. The guy nearly bit his finger off, screaming that he was Satan incarnate, and he was the real Amityville Horror. A lot of people in town thought that. Butch whose brain was always addled by drugs made a very convenient fall guy for those who covered it up.
The strangest part of the whole thing, and I never realized it till I wrote the book in 2012 that the above excerpt is taken from the Frank Zappa song John was playing was over ten years old at the time. It was from the mid-sixties, and all that stuff, starting with the offer to partake in a TV dinner would not take place till the seventies…
There were things when I was a child but I’d long since dismissed them. I was a hedonist by the time I was ten years old and didn’t believe in god, ghosts, the devil or the Easter bunny. That night at the party, I knew I’d been wrong about the devil. But I still don’t know about the other three…
This all goes back to Sumer, in the days before there were any Europeans. It’s important to remember that when someone tells a lie, if they are not an imbecile, they know they are lying. They know the truth. Culturally Europeans are rooted in Mesopotamia, not Rome and Greece and the ruins that were used to fabricate those civilizations.
As the pope’s “historians” tell us of his Greeks and Romans the Sumerians had no heaven for mortals. They believed in a shadowy netherworld for the departed, a dark and dreary place called Kur as in the earth, Irkallain in later Akkadian times. There was no judgment for the soul. In Kur, whether good or bad in life, all are dammed and the eternal reward of the dead is to eat only dirt and spend their days in envy of the living.
Kur is ruled over by the goddess Ereshkigal. In Akkadian times she was given the eponymous name Irkalla. One could receive dispensation from Kur only by her younger sister the great goddess Inanna. Gods don’t normally go to Kur unless they live there but Dumuzid, later Tammuz of the Semites and Adonis of Greek mythology, was the consort of Inanna and he is forever trapped there as her substitute.
Inanna in her pride had tried to extend her power over the dead and single handedly stormed Kur. But she was outwitted by her older sister and ended up trapped there naked and dead, hanging upside down from a hook until her lady in waiting, following her prior instructions should anything go wrong, manages to enlist the help of Enki and his knowledge of the waters of life to resurrect her. But she must provide a replacement; her lady in waiting is out of the question as is her favored warrior and hairdresser so she decides to give them Dumuzid.
Of course, academics tried to make another seasonal metaphor out of this story too. They claimed for over a century that Dumuzid returned from the dead every spring but a recently found complete tablet of Inanna’s Descent shows Dumuzid stays dead. Many scholars believe Dumuzid is the prototype model for Jesus…
Much like Xibalba, the Mayan place of the dead, Kur is the home of fearsome entities like Lamashtu the demonic blood drinking daughter of Anu. Anunnaki very simply means offspring of Anu, just like Elohim means offspring of El. It cannot be understood as anything but an indication of a god of the highest rank. Seven Anunnaki judge Inanna for her ill-advised assault on Kur. Cuneiform was not deciphered till the mid nineteenth century so all translations including Zecharia Sitchin’s are suspect.

In Sumerian eschatology, Nergal is the husband of Ereshkigal because he apparently is the only one who can satisfy her sexually. When the gods give a banquet for Ereshkigal, she sends an envoy in her place because she cannot leave Kur. Nergal disrespects the envoy and is summoned to Kur by Ereshkigal so she can kill him for the slight. Nergal accepts the challenge and brings with him a contingent of fourteen demons. When the two do meet he ends up violently dethroning her and more or less slapping her around.
He had been advised by Enki to take no offerings from her and not to have sex. But he finds the seduction irresistible and for six days neither comes up for air, thus sealing a marriage literally made in Hell.
Kur has an intelligence and powers all its own. Ereshkigal, originally ‘Lady of the Great Earth,’ has been abducted by Kur and forced to become its queen. When Enki sets out to avenge the abduction, he is repelled by Kur itself. It is these powers that Inanna wanted for herself. That they are sexual in nature is spelled out in the ancient Sumerian hymn Inanna and Utu.
Inanna, who would become the goddess of sex, originally knew nothing about it. She begs her brother Utu to take her down to Kur, where she may taste the fruits of the vegetation that grows there and gain knowledge of the deepest carnal secrets. He does, and she becomes the goddess of sex.(37)
Kur is also the home of the Gallûs, malevolent entities believed to be seven in number perhaps corresponding to the seven Anunnaki who judge Inanna. They are answerable to no gods and feared by all of them. They snatch the souls of the dead and deposit them in Kur.
It is the Gallûs that follow Inanna up from the underworld and demand she supply them with a substitute, which she does when she gives them Dumuzid whom they gleefully drag down to Kur to torture for all eternity. In Babylon the Gallûs were appeased by the sacrifice of a lamb at their altars.
But other maleficent forces abroad in Sumer couldn’t be so easily appeased, nor could they be commanded back to the netherworld by any god or demon king. Born of Kur but able to walk in the land of the living with impunity, they are the Udug-hul called utukku-lemnu in Babylon. “The ones poured out as progeny of Anu, they are children born of the netherworld. They belong to an evil nurse. They sucked the milk of an evil wet-nurse.” (38)
“There are few descriptions of the udug demon, and no pictorial references to it on either seal impressions or statuary.” There is an ancient Babylonian incantation that describes the udug as “the one who, from the very beginning, was not called a name… The one who never appeared with a form…” (39)
In ancient Sumer they believed all disease and afflictions were caused by malevolent entities. When calamity befell a Sumerian, particularly one of means, an Ašipu or white magician was called in. The Ašipu using what can only be described as empirical demonology would diagnose the situation and decide who, what and where it was coming from. Because he was only a man, he would then enlist the help of the god Asalluhi, later called Marduk by the Babylonians who worshiped him as their principle deity, in exorcising the offending entity.
Asalluhi would in turn enlist the help of his father Enki, known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian times. This Babylonian system of exorcism has come to be known as the Marduk-Ea formula by scholars. In one of the Sumerian incantations that has survived intact to the present day, Asalluhi, who would become Marduk, the fiercest of all the gods, describes the Udug-hul to his father Enki with dread:
“O my father, the evil Udug (udug hul/utukku lemnu), its appearance is malignant and its stature towering.
Although it is not a god, its clamor is great and its radiance immense
It is dark, its shadow is pitch black and there is no light within its body
It always hides, taking refuge; [it] does not stand proudly
Its claws drip with bile, it leaves poison in its wake
Its belt is not released, his arms enclose
It fills the target of its anger with tears, in all the lands [its] battle cry cannot be restrained.”(40)
The Udug-hul cannot be cast out by either god or man and can only be driven off its human victim by a good Udug, usually paired with a Lama, called Lamassu in later Akkadian times. The Lama is a protective spirit or goddess. In Babylon they were depicted as a bull with a human head, but in Sumerian times as a winged female. As the exorcist, it was the job of the Ašipu to create a situation where these entities were paired off against each other.
Human sacrifice was practiced in Mesopotamia on a scale only equaled and surpassed in Mesoamerica and Europe during the last millennium. Basur Höyük, Arslantepe and the death pits of Ur tell a forensic tale of horrendous carnage, the victims stabbed through the head with a pike. ‘The Great Death Pit’ alone contained the remains of “74 individuals, six of whom were male and the rest female.”(41)
At Basur Höyük, a male and female twelve year old were found interred, with eight other children sacrificed as what archaeologists call their retainers, a polite euphemism for their eternal slaves in the netherworld. “The victims ranged in age from 11 to 20 years old.” (42)
Making sacrifice to the netherworld and the entities that come from it is as old as time itself. The Udug-hul are more formidable magically than Enki himself and can only be defeated by another Udug, the Shayāṭīn are worthy opponents of Allah, and Mot more than a match for Baal. It is inconceivable that from a race as unscrupulous as Man, there would not arise a subspecies that would consider it prudent to be on their side…
At least since the genocide of the Cathars in the thirteenth century, euphemistically referred to as the Albigensian Crusades by sycophantic academics, Catholicism has engaged in human sacrifice on a scale that would have made the Sumerians blush.
In the eyes of the Roman Catholic church, “the Cathars were heretics; as such, they had to be burnt. The smallest trace of “sin” had to be extirpated, the corrupt body had to be destroyed and evil exorcised in the flames. Even corpses were disinterred and burnt if the deceased were suspected a posteriori of having been heretics. Burning inflicted a double punishment, both temporal and spiritual, since the Cathar church considered that burial of a body was a necessary condition for resurrection.” (43)
Under the auspices of the Dominican order, the Inquisition was permanently established in 1229 at the Council of Toulouse to deal with the Cathars. Once known as the Black Friars, the Dominicans only real job now it seems is to fill Catholic schoolrooms with overly severe spinsters to browbeat the children. But the order was originally founded about a dozen years before the permanent establishment of the Inquisition to combat the Cathars by preaching Catholic dogma to the masses.
After failing miserably to convert any Cathars, the Inquisition was established, and the pope unleashed his dogs of war. From that point forward, torture of the most heinous kind imaginable to the human mind, and finally the burning of their surviving victims alive in macabre public spectacles became the Dominican trademark. There was and still is statuary of wolf dogs in front of their buildings proclaiming themselves “domini canes” or “hounds of the lord,” god’s own Hell Hounds…
When the Catholics were through burning all the Cathars, they moved to the Waldensians whom they’d considered heretics for almost a hundred years before the Albigensian Crusade but never tortured and burned. The Holocaust or “burnt offering,” had now become a Christian tradition, if not an addiction.
In the sixteenth and seventeenth century, it would be embraced by Protestants like a lost child. It’s conservatively estimated that some fifty thousand people, mostly women, were burned at the stake as witches in Europe during this period, many on the say so of information found in a book written by a man whom a century before had been judged to be clinically insane by his peers.
Contrary to popular opinion, the Inquisition hardly if ever prosecuted women for witchcraft. This was the work of a demented Dominican cleric Heinrich Kramer, author of what would become the definitive work on witchcraft; Malleus Maleficarum. The pope attempted to empower Kramer with his 1484 Papal Bull: Summis desiderantes affectibus, acknowledging witchcraft as real and the Inquisition and particularly Kramer’s power to prosecute it.
But the German clergy roundly rejected Kramer as a sexual deviate. He had dragged Helena Scheuberin, a well-connected woman who had publicly accused him of being in league with the devil, into court with about a dozen others. His obsession with the woman’s sexual proclivities astounded and embarrassed all who witnessed his prosecution of her. The Italian bishop overseeing Innsbruck; Karl Golser, would end up ejecting Kramer from Innsbruck and writing letters to all who would read them that Kramer was quite insane. Kramer would write the book as an attempt at vindication.
The Hollywood image of the Grand Inquisitor, brandishing his copy of Malleus Maleficarum, and prosecuting helpless women to be burned at the stake never happened in a papal court. The infamous witch trials of the Reformation, particularly in Germany where tens of thousands of woman were burned at the stake, mostly took place in secular courts.
Those that didn’t were the product of the infamous Spanish Inquisition and its murderous sibling the Portuguese Inquisition both of which were under control of their respective Monarchies. The papacy never really approved of the Spanish Inquisition, or its economically motivated cruelties toward converted Jews and Muslims under its Grand Inquisitor, the legendary Dominican fanatic, Tomás de Torquemada, a descendant of converted Jews himself.
But Spain, along with Portugal, was the preeminent military power in the world at the time. Their swords had been forged through centuries of warfare in the Reconquista. These were a people who had known only warfare of the most brutal kind imaginable for generation upon generation.
They would produce the Conquistadors, Europe’s answer to the Samurai, without the tautological Asian attempt at ethics, homicidal psychopaths on a Quest to steal what they could and murder the rest. As they would soon prove to millions upon millions of hapless Mesoamericans; nobody was arguing with them…
On March 31, 1492, the Edict of Expulsion was signed by the monarchs of Spain. The deadline for Jews to leave Spain was August 3, 1492, the Ninth of Av or Tisha B’av on the Jewish calendar. This time it was the monarchs who had little choice. It was the price Queen Isabella had promised to the Dominican friar, Fray Alonso de Ojeda, and Cardinal Mendoza for securing a papal sanction for her Inquisition.
The ships set sail before dawn on this day of fasting, commemorating the Torah’s fictional account of the destruction of the Temples. On board was Luis de Torres who was fluent in Hebrew, Akkadian and Arabic. Columbus expected to use Torres as an interpreter when they encountered the lost tribes of Israel. The expedition’s doctor and navigator were also Jews.
Columbus would need a Jewish navigator because he would be using a metal astrolabe invented by Avraham Zacuto, a Jewish professor at the University of Salamanca. The instrument was used in accordance with Zacuto’s astronomical tables and gave the exact hours for the rising of the planets and fixed stars. Zacuto’s astronomical tables, called Ha-á¸¥ibbur ha-gadol, were in Hebrew and would not be published in Latin until 1496.
It’s common knowledge that, right before he sighted the New World, Columbus and his crew bore witness to mysterious lights in the sky. What is not common knowledge is that Columbus was later hauled before the Inquisition for saying the lights took the form of a Jewish Menorah.
Columbus was heavily financed by Jews, among them were Juan Cabrero, royal chamberlain of King Ferdinand, Luis de Santangelo, chancellor of the royal household of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella and Gabriel Sanchez, treasurer of Aragon. Ostensibly, with the exception of Zacuto who fled to Jerusalem, all these men were converted and called Marrano (swine in English) Christians by the Catholics.
Although these men were called pigs, they were allowed to keep their immense fortunes and pretty much ran Spain in spite of the Inquisition. In fact, the letter formally announcing Columbus’s discovery of the New World was addressed to Luis de Santangelo, and it was from Santangelo that Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand would hear of the expedition’s success.
Columbus landed on Hispaniola and within a few years under his regency, Spain established Capitanía General de Santo Domingo, now the city of Santo Domingo, named after Saint Dominic, the founder of the Dominican Order. The Dominicans would once again oversee the genocide.
An estimated four hundred thousand Taino Indians had resided idyllically in the tropical paradise since time out of mind. They, or all of them that could be captured, were immediately enslaved and forced to work in the gold mines that Columbus had known were there long before he had embarked from Spain.
By 1508, their numbers had decreased to around sixty thousand because of the horrors inflicted upon them by Columbus, which included rape, murder for sport and using war dogs to disembowel them and eat their children. By 1535, only a few dozen survived. (44)
By then, the Dominicans were already teaching the gospel to the Aztecs…
