His book Behold a Pale Horse is like a bible to many.
Proud to count his book as one of the canons in my conspiracy bible. Although it was more of a collection of documents, Secret Weapons for Quiet Wars
made all the sense in the world as soon as I read it.
Yeah, I forgot to mention that part. Agreed-- Pale Horse is a great book. As I said before, i don't agree with everything the man says, but there is
quite a lot of interesting anecdotes and theories in that book.
Which reminds me-- one more thing that many Cooper Detractors will point to: His inclusion of a particularly insidious document-- The Protocols of
The Elders of Zion. Widely regarded as an anti-semitic hoax. I have an alternate theory. It's a little "left field" but an interesting, (maybe
plausible?) explanation for "The Protocols" that leaves anti-semitism on the cutting room floor.
There was a very fascinating book that came out a number of years ago, called Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Some researchers will tell you this book was
based on a hoax perpetrated by Pierre Plantard. Not everyone agrees on this. To make a long story short, the authors supposedly found a document in
the french (national?) library which talked about a secret society, which supposedly contained, as members, some of the greatest names from history.
Some of the members of this group, claimed descent from a group of french kings, the Merovingians, who supposedly traced their lineage back to Christ.
(This because, Christ was secretly married-- a secret kept from Christendom for centuries-- and a theory which has a good bit of evidence behind it.)
Christ was wed to Mary Magdalene and they had a child, who fled to france after the crucifixion. Hence, the bloodline.
Supposedly, much or all of European Royalty descends from this line. This neatly explains their obsession with inter-marrying as well as their belief
that they have the divine right to rule, by virtue of their "royal" blood.
Anyway, this secret society is supposedly active today. And because of the fact that they believe themselves descended from the son of god, aka "King
of the Jews," they called themselves "The Priory of Sion." Accept for a moment the existence of such a group. If they exist, it is not
necessary that you believe they are descended from Christ. It is only necessary that they
Thus, you have a group of very much non-jewish people (or only Jewish by a small percentage) calling themselves after "Zion."
So, my question: Could Priory of Sion = Elders of Zion?
