They are trying to form an occult connection between the mass killings listed so far and the phase of the moon, the main point of the argument being
that many of these acts took place during the Crescent or Waxing Moon phase and are as such connected to a black magic ritual.
This is what the Islamic tradition believes.....
In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated, "South
Arabia's stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations." Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god's name
"Sin" is a part of such Arabic words as "Sinai," the "wilderness of Sin," etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained
true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the
chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god.
This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha,
that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the
name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known
The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia
demonstrate that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad's day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while
the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al-ilah, i.e. "the deity," meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed
out, "The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God." The Moon-god was called al- ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in
pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah
as part of their names.
and the Key of Solomon
For those matters then which appertain unto the Moon, such as the Invocation of Spirit, the Works of Necromancy, and the recovery of stolen property,
it is necessary that the Moon should be in a Terrestrial Sign, viz.: Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn.
For love, grace, and invisibility, the Moon should be in a Fiery Sign, viz.: Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
For hatred, discord, and destruction, the Moon should be in a Watery Sign, viz.: Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces.
For experiments of a peculiar nature, which cannot be classed under any certain head, the Moon should be in an Airy Sign, viz.: Gemini, Libra, or
But if these things seem unto thee difficult to accomplish, it will suffice thee merely to notice the Moon after her combustion, or conjunction with
the Sun, espe- cially just when she quits his beams and appeareth visible. For then it is good to make all experiments for the construction and
operation of any matter. That is why the time from the New unto the Full Moon is proper for performing any of the experiments of which we have spoken
above. But in her decrease or wane it is good for War, Distur- bance, and Discord. Likewise the period when she is almost deprived of light, is proper
for experiments of invisibility, and of Death.

on the subject of Devil worship
Human sacrifices are one of the principal characteristic traits of Devil-worship, but not the only one. There are in addition other devilish practices
which are based on the idea that the Deity takes delight in witnessing tortures, and the height of abomination is reached in cannibalism, which, as
anthropology teaches us, is not due to scarcity of food, but can always be traced back to some religious superstition, especially to the notion that
he who partakes of the heart or brain of his adversary acquires the courage, strength, and other virtues of the slain man.
The last remnants of the idea that the wrath of the Deity must be appeased by blood, and that we acquire spiritual powers by eating the flesh and
drinking the blood of the victim still linger with us to-day in the medieval
interpretations of certain church dogmas, and will only disappear before the searching light of a fearless and consistent religious reformation. We
must remember, however, that certain superstitions, at early stages of the religious development of mankind, are as unavoidable as the various errors
which science and philosophy pass through in their natural evolution.
Religion always begins with fear, and the religion of savages may directly be defined as "the fear of evil and the various efforts made to escape
evil." Though the fear of evil in the religions of civilised nations plays no longer so prominent a part, we yet learn through historical
investigations that at an early stage of their development almost all worship was paid to the powers of evil, who were regarded with special awe and
Actual Devil-worship continues until the positive power of good is recognised and man finds out by experience that the good, although its progress may
be ever so slow, is always victorious in the end. It is natural that the power that makes for righteousness is by and by recognised as the supreme
ruler of all powers, and then the power of evil ceases to be an object of awe; it is no longer worshipped and not even propitiated, but struggled
against, and the confidence prevails of a final victory of justice, right, and truth.

However, that is merely just a connection that can be made and not one that is necessarily active in these cases. As previously stated in other posts,
you can find evidence of mass killings closer to the full moon then any other. You should also consider the general population level of the area and
the likelihood that someone, somewhere is just gonna lose it.
Remember all the Post Office shootings?
If you really wish to form a solid link between the occult and these killings you will need more then just the Moon's phase at the time.
Look for obvious Occult references in the killings or in the evidence, not in the name of the person.
Look for common occult tools, like knives, bells, candles as well common occult shapes like the circle, cross or crescent moon to be somewhere visible
at the scene, at a shrine or on the persons body.
There are many 'Grimoires' or tomes of "Occult" knowledge out there, but most of those printed in the past 50 years can be discounted and of those
that come before very few actively mention evil rituals and rites. This isn't to say that they do not exist, but one must consider the mentality of
the church, the "Mob", and the conquerors of nations, who generally like to destroy such things in their entirety or merge them into their own
Also consider the possibility of straight possession by demonic forces as opposed to a ritual designed to appease them.
Finally look for 'name-dropping' of specific deities or demons before or after the event in question, assuming the suspect is alive, and refrain from
assuming that "Satan made me do it" means anything more then insanity unless you have enough side evidence to back it up.
On the subject of demons, be careful in any investigation and refrain from saying the names of any demons out loud as this draws their attention.
