(found out this about Deagle)
Deagle started a Christian ministry, Clay and Iron, back in the late ’80s and he was on the Prophecy Club lecture circuit as late as 2000. He was
ejected from the Prophecy Club roster for being a false prophet; the founder still has an apology on his website, telling PC fans that he’s sorry he
had anything to do with Deagle and a few other speakers who turned out to be full of it.
Deagle is not anti-Semitic (he encourages people of all religions to cooperate in fighting the New World Order), but he does refer to Zionism as “an
apostate arm of the Babylonian Talmudic Satanism subject to the Vatican.” I don’t know of any practicing Jews who talk like that, not even the
ones who oppose Zionism!
The thing is, Deagle STILL claims to be a Christian prophet in his public talks and on his radio show, websites, etc. He even told the Prophecy Club
that he is one of the two witnesses described in Revelations! He was visited by the Archangel Gabriel on many occasions, he said.
Now, perhaps Deagle was raised Jewish, but that’s unlikely. There aren’t many Jews in Novia Scotia.
I just want to add that I am not a mean-spirited person. I am not “attacking” Deagle out of spite or anger. I don’t want to censor him or cast
aspersion on his character. I saw him speak in Vancouver last year, and I just had a very strange feeling that he wasn’t being straight-up with the
audience, so I checked into his background and listened to hours of his recorded talks to see what he had to say. The more I listened, the more
disturbed I became by his inaccuracies (many of which can be attributed to mere lack of fact-checking; for example, he said in his Granada Forum talk
that the term “Shock and Awe” is the name of a Babylonian war goddess. Well, there aren’t any Mesopotamian deities with a name like that -
except for a very minor guy called Shakan, patron god of shepherds. But the Hebrew word “shekineh” refers to the presence of God within the inner
sanctum of the temple. If he had looked into this and other such claims before throwing them into his talks, he wouldn’t be spreading misinformation
and I wouldn’t have to criticize him at all!) Other claims are more problematic, because he’s either making them up or receiving them from highly
unreliable sources whom he trusts. Either way, not good. And yes, I do find it odd that a man who claims to be a brilliant doctor with cutting-edge
health solutions to offer us has such a serious problem with weight control. There’s nothing wrong with being overweight, but it’s obvious (as
“Another Person” pointed out) that he is not even following his own advice. I don’t know about you, but that does not inspire my confidence.
I’m not singling out Dr. Deagle. There are many such speakers in the alternative media, people who don’t check their facts, people who exaggerate
or confabulate or just outright lie. I don’t let the mainstream media get away with this, so why would I let Deagle and his ilk off the hook? In my
opinion, they must be held to the same standards as all other forms of media.
The bottom line is this: I don’t want to see people uncritically accept anyone’s statements or take his/her advice without looking into the issues
for themselves first. No one has all the answers, no one man can save the world, and it’s up to each of us to make informed decisions to the best of
our own abilities - not rely on someone else’s version of truth. We all need to cultivate the ability to discern useful/accurate information from
hogwash that someone is trying to sell to us for their own entertainment or profit.
