Nah, that's just Christian rubbish that was invented to
make the older religions look bad as Christianity spread and took over.
I presume you're aware that ley lines are not manmade. I don't think it's all that unusual that religious structures have been built on ley lines
for centuries, and as older "pagan" holy sites were co-opted by the Church, those same sites were used, new churches being built on the ruins of the
I won't argue against the existence of ley lines... I've traveled the line from Tintagel to Glastonbury to Avebury and there are at least 7
significant churches, holy wells or stone circles along that line.
I do take exception to the notion that the Templars were involved in all the sites he lists. I'm not an expert on the subject, but I was under the
impression that the Templars themselves weren't as active in the UK as they were on the continent. Sure, there's the legend that after their
dissolution by the pope some of the remnants went to Scotland and joined the Hospitalers under Robert the Bruce. (Which leads to many of the Rosslyn
chapel connections) But, for instance, I've never heard the Templars associated with Glastonbury before seeing that site, and he doesn't seem to do
much to back up those claims.
