  1. If you're not disturbed that there are licensed mental health care professionals perpetuating the myth that there are "multi-generational nazi devil-worshipers who have secretly been running the government since at least the 1950s, control Silicon Valley, and force their own children to perform black magic rituals," then I don't even know what to say. Kudos to Grey Faction and its work to expose these people. Read more here.
  2. A Game of Thrones Tarot deck exists, and from an artistic standpoint it's quite impressive. In what's a possibly unfortunate circumstance for me, I've never watched a single episode of GoT, so I'm not able to comment on anything other than the surface impression of the artwork. Want to see the entire deck? Read more here.
  3. This is a puff piece of advertising disguised as journalism, but this interview about what it's like to be married to a psychic medium is actually really informative in terms of the vocabulary the psychic uses to weasel out of questions and create safeguards against why she hasn't yet won the lottery, found missing children, solved cold-case crimes, and so on.

  4. Why am I not surprised that a "Christian ex-witch" who believes that "the Illuminati controls our minds via flu shots" is a vaccine denier? Vax deniers are basically required to be anti-government conspiracy theorists because that's the only way to get around the problem of "doing your own research." If you "do your own research," this'll take you into the halls of government-funded research and "mainstream medicine" where -- if you stay long enough -- you might become a licensed physician who's part of the conspiracy.

  5. Ash Astaroth's Leviathan ritual may be the most clever use of social media in terms of ritual magic I’ve ever witnessed. Better than 10 years ago when I left the LDS Church I tried Wicca on for size, and naturally I found a study group online that did virtual rituals via a chat room. It was… a contributing factor to my decision to leave Wicca. Read more about the Leviathan ritual here.
  6. Are there daily practices in Satanism? Well, that depends on the Satanist. Read more here.
  7. On a related note, what does artistic devotion by Satanist look like? Read more here.
  8. Was Milton's "Paradise Lost" a scientific epic? Read more here.

  1. That Game of Thrones deck looks good, I keep seeing it pop up but I too, have never watched it haha! It just doesn't interest me at all for some reason, though I'm not a huge tv show viewer.

    1. I'll binge watch GoT on the day that it probably never comes to Netflix in Canada.

      We don't get shit on Netflix in Canada.
