My name in pixels

One of his coleagues in this campaing is Matthew Dentith who runs a radio program called the Dentith Files which exists to lampoon conspiracy theories. Dentith is undertaking his PhD with Auckland University, his thesis subject being the debunking of conspiracy theory. Dentith provides Hamilton with a platform to expound his own ‘nazi conspiracy’ theory.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the world of Metapedia, the Wikipedia for the Far, Occult-obsessed, Right. Whilst I don’t get an entry all to my own, I do feature in Scott Hamilton’s entry; obviously I must try harder.

My comrade and I spent a goodly portion of last night following links like two Conspiracy Theorists following the money, but our search did not produce fruit. “Dr.” Kerry Bolton, who gets a glowing write-up, seems a most distinguished fellow. Apparently he got a PhD in Historical Theology in 2006 and another PhD in Theology in 2007. As someone who is writing a PhD I’m very envious; I can’t imagine writing one in two years, let alone one a year.

But, and this is odd, no one seems to know which accrediting institution awarded these higher level qualifications.

And the peer-reviewed journal he has submitted work to… Doesn’t Patrick Boch remind you of a young H. P. Lovecraft?

If I were more musically inclined I’d make the title a Prince reference, but that isn’t happening.

Celtic New Zealand Book Notes

(The image comes courtesy of the Fundy Post, who alerted me to the orginating publications presence and location within the University of Auckland’s library.)

So, 1999. As the image above should show to the discerning viewer, something was happening back then. A glut of Celtic New Zealand thesis tomes were produced.

Now, I’m fairly sure 1999 was the period in New Zealand where cheap offset printing became a reality and a whole host of small press publishers appeared, needing things to print. That is what I’m assuming; it may, of course, be utter tripe. Still, these books did appear and people like DoutrĂ© do treat publication, in any form, as some kind of public vindication of their theories. That so much paper should be wasted on such projects is scary.

Back to work for me; I have a test to write.

What is real and what is not?

The discussion of Martin DoutrĂ©’s Celtic New Zealand thesis saw the not infrequent mentioning of one Kerry Bolton. Now, I’m not writing a thesis on Mr. Bolton, but someone did, that someone being Roel van Leeuwen. As many of you will know, van Leeuwen’s Master thesis has been pulled from the shelves at the University of Waikato whilst it undergoes an enquiry, an enquiry that began when Bolton complained that the thesis made him out to be a bit of a Nazi whackjob.

Now, whether or not the thesis does make him out to be a bit of a Nazi whackjob or whether he actually a bit of a Nazi whackjob is neither here nor there. I think I’ve made my position clear enough in previous correspondence. However, what is interesting is this. It’s a blog devoted to, according to its author, exploring the existence of Satanism and Black Magick in Aotearoa. What is especially interesting about it is that it appears to be a blog trying to do a hatchet job on van Leeuwen.

I’m not one for vapid Conspiracy Theorising and I’m not going to add a `but’ to the end of this sentence. I can’t say for sure that the `Satanism in New Zealand’ blog is seeking to discredit van Leeuwen (and if it is, who really reads blogs anyway? I know we do but we’re hardly important, are we?) but it is interesting (for the third time) to note that there are no posts not devoted to the van Leeuwen thesis on Kerry Bolton.

Which might just be because there isn’t much Satanism and very little Black Magick going on here. If I were the Fundy Post I’d like to, say, Cliff Richard’s `Devil Woman’ right now, but I won’t. Instead, I leave you with the best of `Jazz Club.’
