Man’s Hell on Earth! (Oct, 1937)

Man’s Hell on Earth!

Natural lakes of boiling water, spitting sulphuric flames, boiling mud, and incandescent lava, furnish the settings for a group of hideous demons which are worshipped even to this day.

By A. N. Mirzaoff

NOT long ago a group of French explorers came across a small group of islands off the southern tip of the Island of Kyushu or Kiushiu, Japan. Although there is nothing new about the existence of these islands, the average student knows little of their history.

UNSUSPECTED POWER (Feb, 1950)

UNSUSPECTED POWER

The Mysterious Influence In The Air You Breathe!

The SOUL OF THE UNIVERSE is in the air you breathe. Deposited in your blood—with each inhalation you take—is the intelligence that directs the course of the planets through the misty reaches of space, and the strange phenomenon of life itself.

Rosicrucians: The Memory of an Atom (Jan, 1942)

The Rosicrucians seem to have a knack for pulling science imagery into their ads.

The Memory of an Atom

Can The Past Be Awakened–
–and THE PURPOSE OF OUR LIVES KNOWN?

WERE THE ANCIENTS RIGHT? Does the whirling heart of an atom contain the secret of the universe? If everything from a grain of sand to the mighty stars—including man—is composed of atoms, do these particles contain the infinite intelligence which ordained and directs all things? Shall man at last find within them his true purpose in the scheme of things?

THE HOMOSEXUAL CRUSADERS (Dec, 1967)

I have no idea if the Templars were gay or not, but in general people will admit to pretty much anything when you torture them.

Also, apparently it was all the damn Moslem’s fault.

THE HOMOSEXUAL CRUSADERS

There is good evidence that history’s boldest warriors belonged to a secret homosexual order

By RICHARD STILLER, M.A.
Mr. Stiller, a former associate editor of this magazine, is now a writer in the medical and health fields.

Few historical events have so seized the imagination of Western Civilization as the great Crusades of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. From these passionate efforts of Christian Europe to wrest its holy places in Palestine from the Mohammedans have come down our most virile ideal: the warrior in a sacred cause.

DO WE HAVE TO DIE? (Nov, 1941)

Yes, we do. The Institute of Mentalphysics is still around.

DO WE HAVE TO DIE?

A strange man in Los Angeles, known as “The Voice of Two Worlds,” reveals the story of a remarkable system that often leads to almost unbelievable improvement in power of mind, achievement of brilliant business and professional success and new happiness. Many report improvement in health. Others tell of increased bodily strength, magnetic personality, courage and poise.

Man Can Now Talk With God (May, 1938)

I’m pretty sure this was always possible. The hard part is getting God to talk back…

Man Can Now Talk With God

Says Noted Psychologist

“A new and revolutionary religious teaching based entirely on the misunderstood sayings of the Galilean Carpenter, and designed to show how we may find, understand and use the same identical power which Jesus used in performing His so-called Miracles,” is attracting worldwide attention to its founder, Dr. Frank B. Robinson, noted Psychologist, author and lecturer.

Church Goes To Sea (Jul, 1937)

This kind of reminds me of the Boat Church in Ian McDonald’s excellent book Brasyl.

Church Goes To Sea

WHEN the congregation can’t go to church, the church goes to the congregation, along the Parana River in the Argentine.

This floating church, 108 feet long, has steeple, stained glass windows and altar. Built in the government’s Buenos Aires shipyard, the hull of an old vessel was transformed into a church by the Lincoln arc-weld process.

Before this floating church made its appearance, many of the church-goers of that section were unable to attend formal worship.

AN AMERICAN BISHOP’S SEARCH FOR A SPACE-AGE GOD (Feb, 1966)

AN AMERICAN BISHOP’S SEARCH FOR A SPACE-AGE GOD

BY CHRISTOPHER S. WREN

LAST September, the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of California left on sabbatical for Cambridge University in England “to find . out what I really do believe.” The Rt. Rev. James A. Pike —m had just been cleared by his fellow bishops of heresy—the third such charge against him since 1961.

What he believes is hardly typical of a bishop. “I’ve jettisoned the Trinity, the Virgin Birth and the Incarnation,” he told Look in his Cambridge flat recently. These were the heresy accusations of last fall. Bishop Pike also rejects the accepted views of God and prayer. “Everything I’m saying has a question mark at the end,” he explains. Even his musings will be controversial when he comes home.

Mental Poisoning! (Jul, 1939)

Mental Poisoning!

Thoughts that Enslave Minds

Tortured souls. Human beings whose self-confidence and peace of mind have been torn to shreds by invisible darts—the evil thoughts of others. Can envy, hate and jealousy be projected through space from the mind of another? Do poisoned thoughts, like mysterious rays, reach through the ethereal realms to claim innocent victims? All of us, from day to day and hour to hour, in every walk of life, in every circumstance, are possible victims of mental poisoning, unless we understand its nature, and can quickly recognize its infectious innoculation.
