I think the research in the paper is good and can agree the story about journalists helping to expose some pedophile priests was made up. I do have some questions about his genealogy research that I want to address in another topic.
But this is on the second to last page:
It should have been pretty easy to do. Really?So how do we explain that? Well, logically, it indicates one of three things: either the Church was completely in on it from the start, they were infiltrated, or they were blackmailed into silence.What do I mean by blackmailed? Well, if the Church wasn't in on it, and was only a target, we would have expected them to have blown the project completely. They would have gone on TV and told everyone these priests and bishops weren't real Catholics and weren't working for them. It should have been pretty easy to do. Except for one thing: it would require blowing the MATRIX entirely. If you go on TV and tell the world that top state officials and wealthy families are staging major show trials and placing huge fake stories in the top newspapers, you have just blown not only the current project, but all projects—including your own.
The rest of the quote also shows his lack of understanding about how the "MATRIX" works. It could have written by another person than the one doing the research.
And then this:
Does someone interested in the truth have to justify why he doesn't support a project based entirely on deception? A project that has an impact not only on Catholics but on all people, as he showed earlier?Of course this begs a very big question, one I cannot really dodge after all I have said above. If I admit the Catholic Church is part of the big historical con, why shouldn't I support this project run against it?
As a reader, I would say that this is really unnecessary, actually a waste of his time. I would suppose his supporters would agree.
And what about the content of his justification? It boils down to this: They are evil but still better than the "plutocrats", their supposed opponents. I am open to that but can you really hope to show that in 2 paragraphs? I am not impressed:
??...Catholics, who have given us some of the greatest art
in history... The church was honest.
OK this should be taken into context, he is obviously referring to a particular period in history and on a particular subject. Probably a time when the church was more powerful than today. But then why should it have weight on Miles' behavior today ? Earlier he wrote that the church cons the masses each day and depends on the MATRIX for his daily existence.
What do native English speakers think of his use of the word "admit" in the second quote? Notice that he has not brought any evidence for his claims about the church.
Instead of this waste of time, I would have liked him to explore the other interesting possibilities he mentioned:
'Either the Church was completely in on it from the start, they were infiltrated,'
Did the church had anything to gain with this particular hoax? Possibly, It could have drawn the public attention away from real victims and perpetrators. Because it was fake there was zero risk that secrets would be brought to light. In other words: everything was controlled.
An interesting question that he didn't ask is "was it a reality that "the church" covered up cases of pedophilia, thereby putting more children at risk?. I think so. I am not exactly defending the Catholics here but keep in mind that it is the majority religion for my country and for my family.
Staying close to the subject of the paper, I was wondering if anybody would like to take a closer look at a world famous pedophile from Belgium, Marc Dutroux. I find it hard to do myself, but I could help providing the stories. There is a conspiracy theory that I think most Belgians who want to know the truth take very seriously, with much support in the mainstream media. It contains much more horrible elements than the official theory. But it is entirely possible that both the official and the conspiracy theories contain fabrications, possibly to protect other pedophiles.
One of the most silly stories was his escape on 23/4/1998 that led directly to the resignation of 2 top ministers and a historical police reform.
Another silly story: Marc Dutroux made a home video of himself building a secret room in his basement, where he would hold his victims captive. During a home search the video was seized by the police. Had they watched it, 2 of his victims would have survived. It was sent to a laboratory where there was no video player available, so it was not watched for a year.
Here is a list of names of important characters:
Marc Dutroux (Du trou= from the hole)
Michelle Martin: his wife and accomplice
Michel Lelièvre: accomplice, betrays him after arrest (Le lièvre= the hare)
Bernard Weinstein: former accomplice, murdered by Dutroux after being drugged (wein=wine stein=stone, Zweinstein is the name of the school of witchcraft, Hogworts in the Dutch translation of Harry Potter)
Michel Nihoul: convicted swindler with the face of a gangster, gangleader of Dutroux according to the conspiracy theory, but only convicted of selling drugs to him
Michel Bourlet: 1 of the 4 judges investigating the case
Michel Bouffioux: investigative journalist, one of the 3 most important proponents of the conspiracy theory
Michel Fourniret: French serial killer without direct connection to Dutroux but with many, many similarities, was also investigated by both Michel Bourlet and Michel Bouffioux
Rene Michaux: policeman in charge of shadowing Dutroux, accused of protecting him or at least being incompetent, national scapegoat
Stéphane Michaux: forester that discovered Dutroux after his escape, national hero
Michel (pronounced just like Michelle Obama) is not an unusual name in Belgium but not that common. In my Thunderbird address book I counted only 1 Michel for 1394 e-mail addresses.
Here is a video that covers the entire case, including the conspiracy theory. It is clearly professionally made, with a narrator with a Britisch accent, but I am unable to find the source. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGCwVniRPkQ
There is a rumor about plans to make a Hollywood movie about it: http://nordpresse.be/marc-dutroux-au-ci ... stan-bale/
