Podcast #79: Was the “John Carter” Movie a Leak by Those “In the Know?”


John Carter of Mars
And Richard C. Hoagland: An
Int’resting combo.

This episode is around a half hour long and it’s one I’ve been wanting to do for awhile; now, I’ve finally gotten it out. Richard Hoagland says a lot of crazy things — let’s just get that out there. I think very few would disagree with that statement. He’s supported some more insane things over the years, such as Judy Wood’s claim that the Twin Towers were hit by a particle energy weapon. He’s supported some rather sane things over the years, such as the moon landings were real.

The topic for this podcast episode falls into the former category: The movie, “John Carter,” was a leak by those “in the know” who are speaking directly to him and others “in the know” that this is really what Mars was like. Yup, that’s right — Mars in ancient times was as depicted in the John Carter movie, complete with hunky, shirtless men. And the Ninth Ray, AKA Richard’s hyperdimensional torsion physics.

There’s also both a puzzler, Q&A, and correction from last episode. And to repeat the announcement from the last two episodes:

If you’re going to TAM, I’m planning another li’l get-together, probably Saturday night around 7:45-9:00 (now with times!!), in a suite in the hotel. There are now more than 2-3 people who’ve responded, but under 10, so there’s still plenty of room. I’m going to try to record it and the hope is for it to be sorta a Q&A and/or discussion or something like that about the general topics of the show. You can tell this is incredibly well planned at the moment. IF you’re at all interested, send me an e-mail so I can give you updates.

  1. Strictly speaking, Hoagland has, in fact, advanced a testable statement. He has written that, when a tuning fork is aligned parallel to the axis of a massive spinning object, its inertia will increase and its frequency decrease. If aligned parallel to the plane of rotation, the reverse will occur.

    This is what he has utterly failed to demonstrate, despite taking his 40 year old wristwatch to exotic places, accompanied by his girlfriend.

    And of course, as you say, mathematical theory is absent from everything he’s ever written on this.
