    Robert Forte, The Softer Side of CIA Psychedelic Mind Control |407|

    Hi David, I'm a bit late to this discussion but it does seem there is a wide range of knowledge and opinions on the topic. For anyone looking for more background info there are several documentaries. There is one called "The Net: LSD, The Unibomber, and the Internet" I saw about a decade ago...

    Al Borealis Created a Podcast That Dives Deep Into Topics That Matter |389|

    Hi David, Sorry for the late reply, I've traveling for work. The point I was trying to make with my comments about Magic, is that like you I also thought magic needed that "paranormal" or "supernatural" component you reference to be "magic". This is cut and paste from the definition of...

    Al Borealis Created a Podcast That Dives Deep Into Topics That Matter |389|

    Hi Alex, As recently as a year or two ago, I'd consider topics such as Magic, the Occult and Alchemy as pure bunk. However, I've since come to believe differently about these topics. Magic is real, it just isn't what I thought it was based on movies and TV. In its simplest form is injecting...

    David Mathisen is changing the way we think about Hercules |337|

    Hi David, I certainly will visit your site and read more about your work. I'm not very familiar with the subject matter, but I believe man has somehow "lost" something from our ancient past. When I downloaded the Podcast I really didn't expect to hear a theory that may provide an explanation...

    David Mathisen is changing the way we think about Hercules |337|

    Sorry for being late to the party, but I am new to Skeptiko and just listened to this podcast a few days ago. I found this interview and David's theory to be fascinating and it triggered a thought in me I wanted to share. In ancient times, pre-book, pre-alphabet and even pre-language, man...
