In the first half of Thursday's show, leading spokesperson on the health dangers of genetically modified foods Jeffrey Smith talked about the passage of HR1599 , the DARK Act, which would eliminate states' ability to call for the mandatory labeling of foods as GMO. "It was basically a purchased bill by the biotech industry and Big Food-- they spent almost $50 million in the first half of the year lobbying," he remarked. The new bill, which will be moving on for a vote in the Senate, calls for voluntary labeling, yet no company has ever voluntarily labeled its product as containing GMOs over the last 14 years, he noted. It also eliminates local jurisdiction over GMOs, and this would invalidate over 130 statutes and ordinances in 43 states, including numerous GM-free zones, he warned.
The number one symptom from consuming GM foods is digestive disorders, but people also suffer from low energy, brain fog, food allergies, weight issues, mood imbalances, and joint problems, he outlined. Smith has documented cases where people show dramatic improvements over these issues when they switch to a non-GMO diet. He also detailed the serious problems associated with Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, and announced his new documentary project, Secret Ingredients, for which they are seeking financial support through crowdfunding.
Tarot & Magick:
In the latter half, writer and lecturer Lon Milo DuQuette discussed his work on Tarot and western ceremonial magick. He addressed the controversy over the Baphomet statue unveiled by the Satanic Temple in Detroit-- they want to have the 9 ft. tall bronze work, depicting a winged hermaphrodite with the head of a goat, moved next to a Ten Commandments monument near Oklahoma City's Capitol building. Baphomet was an old Gnostic symbol for the supreme being, and used centuries ago as a representation for God by Knights Templar. They sought an ugly image because they felt nothing could match the actual beauty of God, he explained.
Delving into the historical concept of demons, DuQuette described how medieval magicians would conjure them up as representatives of their flaws and problems, and give them new orders to act as agents of change in their lives. He touched on his research into the life and work of magician/occultist Aleister Crowley, who people are still arguing about 70 years after his death. Crowley most likely served as a secret agent/spy for Great Britain, he confirmed. Regarding the Tarot, DuQuette connected it to Qabalistic traditions, and said the cards function as a perfected divination system in the hands of an effective and knowledgeable reader.
Today in Strangeness:
On this date in 1958, Emilia Newcomb, age 22, spontaneously combusted while dancing at a party.
