I found a question from George to Michael Cremo, the "forbidden archaeology" guy...
"Are they called 'sand scripts' because they're written on tablets of sand?"
Stupendous. Inimitable. Homeric.
I didn't hear the show in which he gurgled that out, so I don't know what Cremo's custom was then. But the last time I heard Cremo on with Noory, I was listening for any such stupidity, and I noticed something.
Cremo now carefully uses the full term "the ancient Sanskrit writings of India." Not just "Sanskrit texts," not just "ancient Indian texts," but consistently the full 1) ancient 2) Sanskrit 3) writings 4) of India. He probably does that now as an overabundance of caution; as verbal insurance against Georgie misunderstanding.
But I'm sure that Boy Blunder still hears "sand scripts," because of the way he tries to use the term "Sanskrit." Last July, I believe it was the last time Cremo was on with Noory --and I made a note of this. Georgie tried using "Sanskrit" in a weird plural noun form. Ex: "Michael, do the sanskritS
mention anything about...?" I.e., Noory thinks there is such a thing as "a single 'sanskrit'," thus he thinks the term is a common noun.
But hey folks~ Georgie thinks you send and receive "texas" on your mobile phone, so surely he would hear "-skrit" as "script(s)."
Anyway, I thought he'd been reading this stuff all his life??? Like perhaps some of you, I actually did
know the term "Sanskrit" at age 8, because I actually was
reading esoterica books at that age-- and since Noory is a lot older than me, he might have been just about able to start reading those books about that same time. Might have.
...Well, I mean, he has said he could read by age 18, right? He has said that Chariots Of The Gods?
was the first book he ever read (or maybe just "one of the first"), and it appeared in English in 1968. That book contains the word "Sanskrit." I wonder how he processed/es words that he absolutely didn't / doesn't understand...? Honestly, that's got to suck to be illiterate in a high-profile media position.
For years, people have been dropping the term "Kali Yuga" on "Coast," in speculation about the Big Unknown Change that's supposedly heading our way. Then some months ago, Georgie had an author on with a book whose actual title contains the word "Yugas." Georgie had no clue; hesitated and pronounced it "yoo-goss" and seemed to think it was a singular noun as he asked "whut the hyeck is theyut?"
There are other examples like that.
Illiterate AND doesn't listen. Hey, for all we know, he was fired 2 years ago, and is just oblivious of it.
