LOOK AT FAMOUS OCCULTISTS By The Notorious Doctor Zoom Zoom
EDGAR CAYCE (1877-1945)
Known as “the sleeping prophet”, because he could seem to put himself
into a trance-like state during his readings. Cayce didn't charge for
his "readings", but accepted large donations instead. After his death,
his son started the Association for Research and Enlightenment so he
could charge people fees to research his father's previous readings.
Cayce combined the occult with Biblical teaching and even a dash of
Mormon theology (Cayce claimed his nanny as a child had been one of
Brigham Young’s wives). Both his father and grandfather were said to
have been involved in the occult.
There are different accounts of how Cayce “discovered” his powers, each
more fanciful than the next. One version has him in a coma with fever
at age 10, when he suddenly told the doctor in a trance-like state, “We
have been injured by a baseball to the base of the spine”. He then
instructed the Doctor to make a poultice from herbs and put it on
his neck. This supposedly saved his life.
Another account says an angel visited him as an 8 year old boy, asking
him his wish. Cayce supposedly asked the angel for the gift of healing.
Joseph Smith Jr. Was also supposedly visited by an angel as a child,
which might be the real inspiration for the story.
Yet another account says Cayce got laryngitis, and was cured by a
hypnotist. The laryngitis came back, so under hypnosis, the hypnotist
asked him for a cure. Cayce told the hypnotist the cure, and it
supposedly worked. Later the hypnotist supposedly tried asking Cayce
for cures of other people, which also supposedly worked.
The real source of Cayce’s powers seems to be less mystical. As
mentioned, hisfamily was involved in the occult going back to his
paternal grandfather. As an adult, Cayce worked in a health nut
bookstore, which had many books on folkcures, homeopathy, osteopathy
and quack medicine ( and probably some occult books too). Many of the
cures given in his trances use Osteopath terminology, and that’s
unlikely to be a coincidence. In fact, all of his cures seem to
have been based on folk cures and quack medicine of the day!
One would think with all of Cayce’s psychic powers, he could have come
up with a cure for things like Cancer, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, Heart
Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, and other incurable diseases, but he
didn’t. Although supposedly able to heal others, he couldn’t heal
himself. While he was dying of a fatal illness he predicted “In 5 days
I will be completely healed”. Instead, a few days later he died!
Cayce advised eating almonds to prevent Cancer, to which his followers
note that almonds have laetril in them. Laetril was actually proven to
be ineffectual against Cancer, but people into “alternative medicine”
still swear by it, even though it doesn’t work. Cayce also said a
person could smoke 5 or 6 cigarettes a day and not risk getting Cancer,
which is also not true according to doctors.
The “sleeping prophet” made many false prediction including, including
Hitler would be a man of peace, and Atlantis would rise from the
ocean in 1968 (it didn't). In 1968 the discovery of formations on the
ocean floor that look like a road off the island of Bimini were
heralded by New Agers as proof of Atlantis, but the “road” turned out
to be cracked rock that is found naturally throughout the world’s
ocean. Furthermore, it didn’t “rise from the sea” as Cayce said
Atlantis would, and is still on the bottom of the sea.
There are more false predictions as well. In 1934 he predicted this:
earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater
portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will
be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east
coast of America. There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the
Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the Torrid
areas, and there will be the shifting then of the poles—so that where
there have been those of a frigid or semi-tropical will become the more
tropical, and moss and fern will grow. And these will begin in those
periods in '58 to '98'."
Needless to say, none of these things happened. He made dozens of
otherpredictions that didn't happen as well.
Edgar Cayce; a false prophet and a fake!
