Ba'al Chemtrails Enhance Devil Frequency

He's finally done it. "Firefighter Prophet" Mark Taylor now has his own tag here on Augoeides, just like evangelical elder statesman Pat Robertson. He must be thrilled. For that matter, maybe they both are.

His latest is this gem, which... well, just read it.

During an appearance on the Bless to Teach show this weekend, Taylor declared that chemtrails are not just a secret government program designed to quell an unruly populace, they’re also a tool used by Satan to cut people off from God, or something like that.

In a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch, Taylor said that “everything in life gives off a frequency” and that “all of creation cries out to God in the frequency,” which is how humanity worships God. To counteract this, Satan uses chemtrails to turn humans into “giant antennas” receptive to a devilish frequency that’s designed to tune out God’s frequency.

“All the spraying is to detract us from hearing God’s frequency,” he said. “They are spraying aluminum and barium in the chemtrails and if you look on the periodic table—barium is BA, aluminum is AL; it spells BAAL.”

Of course, Taylor is referring to the Old Testament Canaanite god Ba’al, which was often portrayed as the main enemy of the Hebrew god Yahweh. According to Taylor, this is “no coincidence.”

The levels of wrongness here are just staggering, even for Taylor, who has said some doozies ever since he decided that he was a honest-to-goodness prophet.

My comments follow below.

Level 1 - Aleister Crowley reportedly once marveled at a student who told his that the Qabalah was the structure of the universe, since he considered such a notion akin to asserting that a cat simply consisted of the letters C, A, and T arranged in a particular order. Taylor seems to believe it, though. Apparently you just need to put BA and AL together and you don't just get the name of an ancient Semetic deity, you get the deity itself!

Level 2 - "Ba'al" is not the name of a specific deity. It is a title that simply means "Lord." You need to put a proper name after it for it to refer to a particular being. Presumably, had the ancient peoples who worshipped "Ba'al" converted to Christianity, the same title would have been given to Jesus, who is constantly refered to as "Lord" in English.

Level 3 - Frequency is associated with spiritual and paranormal forces, but it's not clear that the only frequencies that exist are "God" and "The Devil." That reeks of the Manichean heresy that permeates much of modern evangelical Christianity. In fact, every spiritual force in the universe has a frequency, which is one of the main tenets of ceremonial magick. But it's a continuum, not a binary. There probably isn't even a single "devil," but rather various chthonic entities who are happy to play the part in magical operations.

Level 4 - The government is not spraying anything into the atmosphere. People only talk about "chemtrails" in the first place because they don't understand that the visibility of contrails (which are mostly water vapor) depends on atmospheric conditions, so whether you see a trail behind a jet or not, what's coming out of the plane is the same jet fuel exhaust.

Level 5 - Even if the government were spraying the atmosphere, there's no reason they would spray it with aluminum or barium. Neither chemical is psychoactive, so it wouldn't be "mind control." It also wouldn't be geoengineering, which at our current level of technology would have to rely on sulfate compounds, or cloud seeding, which at least has been attempted with mixed results.

Level 6 - Taylor would have a much better case if he argued that the chemtrails were sulfates, because he could then draw a link from geoengineering to both nefarious liberal environmentalists and the devil - since everybody knows that the devil and demons are associated with Sulphur. He could even do some of that witless letter association, since the chemical symbol for Sulphur is S and that's the first letter of SATAN! But he's apparently too dumb to even reason it out that far.

Six levels of wrong, right there. Something this epically stupid clearly earns Taylor his tag.

Interestingly the waste product of aluminium (AL) mining is fluoride (F) a toxic substance. The same stuff they put in toothpaste. However, chemically fluoride is an amplifier element and pharmaceuticals add fluoride to drugs (particularly sedatives) to increase their potency by orders of magnitude. Why fluoride is added to drinking water goes back to WW2. Apparently Allied bombers were told not to bomb IG Farben buildings in Germany during the raids because they heard (through spies) the Nazis were experimenting with mind-control substances developed by IG Farben that could be added secretly to the public's water supply. Both Stalin and the allies were very interested in this experiment and stole its secret (which was fluoride) after the war to implement it in their own territories water supply. The so-called benefit of fluoride to prevent teeth cavities was dreamed up in case people found out and objected to the mass medication project. (Of course any reasonable person knows that they don't have teeth in their stomach, which is where flouridated water goes when you swallow it, but this discrepancy was never considered a problem since sedated people would not have the clarity of thought to notice it...80 years on and they were right.)

Probably Taylor has been exposed to Nobelium, Boron, Radium, Iodine & Nitrogen, resulting in a condition of "No BRaIN"!

Sounds legit!
