The Oracle of Apollo

If in doubt, consult Apollo


The Oracle of Apollo

By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

In former times, it was thought to be prudent to consult with the purveyors of advice and wisdom prior to major undertakings, such as starting big wars.

One of the most important oracle “institutions” in ancient times was the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi, Greece. It swayed much oracular power for nearly one thousand years, lasting well into the times of the Roman Empire after Greece lost its former status as the leading “world power” of the Mediterranean area.

In later years, some historians claimed that the Oracle could not be relied upon, that certain of its proclamations were ambiguous or even turned out to be false.

Nothing of that sort!

People just did not listen carefully! Instead, they interpreted the pronouncements as affirmation of their own preconceived ideas.

One of the most famous examples of such misinterpretations was by Croesus (595-546 B.C.), King of Lydia, today’s area of western Turkey. Croesus was extremely rich and had significant power. His prior missions of conquests went quite well; the empire grew in importance and dominance. Still, just to be on the safe side, before going on the war path, it couldn’t harm to get a favourable reading from the Oracle. So, he consulted the Oracle about his possible attack on the Persian (today’s Iran) empire of the day, led then by Cyrus II (600-530 B.C.).

The Oracle’s answer was

“War will destroy a great empire.”

Just the answer Croesus had hoped for to launch his troops.

However, somewhere along the line, things went awry for Croesus and his troops. The empire that got destroyed was not that of his adversary Cyrus but his own.

If this story sounds vaguely familiar, it is no surprise. Throughout history, powerful regents of one sort or another made proclamations of absolute destruction and humiliation to others, only to be proven wrong in the end. In most of such cases, scores of people perished in such endeavours, from actual war to starvation from lack of food, etc.

Fast Forward to ca. 1950

After WWII, when nuclear bombs were developed and produced at breakneck speed by various entities, it was eventually recognized all around that the cumulative arsenal could destroy all life on Earth, several times over. As result, any strike and potential counter strike could lead to total annihilation of all civilizations, perhaps even wholesale destruction of all human life on earth.

This recognition, over time, gave rise to various conventions and treaties, including reduction of nuclear warheads (SALT Treaties), reduction of missiles, non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology, etc.


However, despite such intentions, additional players emerged, developing their own technologies and powerful arsenals and new players are emerging on the scene. Some nations view nuclear weaponry as an absolute necessity for their survival.

However, having nuclear bombs alone is not (or no longer) the only condition for that desire. As I surmise, it’s become a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy; only those who could muster both the nuclear technology and demonstrated methods of potential delivery to the perceived enemy may be getting access to the coveted seat at the “Round Table.”

In fact, having superior methods of delivery, i.e. the ability to build fast and powerful rocketry systems, is rapidly becoming of critical importance.

The New Rocketry

This new rocketry has hitherto unheard of capabilities. Flying at speeds of 12,000 km/h (7,500 miles per hour) over thousands of miles at heights of many hundreds of miles, such missiles would be difficult to intercept, even with the help of fast super-computers and the most modern anti-missile technologies.

If you don’t know where such delivery systems may get launched from, where or when, it could be time to consult the Oracle once more.

I suspect the Oracle’s answer would still be

“War will destroy a great empire.”

  1. When Putin asked, “Don’t they realize we have the bomb?” He didn’t mean the atomic or Hydrogen bomb, He meant a Super EMP bomb. Russia and China both have such bombs and have them in Polar orbits. North Korea has developed such bombs, got the tech from Russia and have 2 satellites in Polar orbit. Hopefully non nuclear. Any one of those bombs set off while still in orbit over a north-central state would instantly destroy all electrical generating stations and electronics in the entire US and most of Canada.

  2. Really? This fool wants to threaten us, America? We destroyed his pathetic nation and he lives, nicht in Das Deutschland, aber im Amerika.

    We don ‘t need people like him.

  3. The New Testament states that Apollos(Horus, son of perdition, Shiva; just a couple names what some call “the anti-christ”) will rise from the pit, given power from the Red Dragon(Satan), his father, during the latter days before the return of The Christ.
    Human and animal sacrifices have continued from the days of Nimrod’s sons death(Horus) up to modern day awaiting Nimrod(Satan) and Horus’s return.
    Most have been so conditioned as to discard the power of fallen angels and demons. Thank goodness my spirit will in sheol before that dark day arrives!
    Pray for peace everyone, and pray for those whom we call our enemies eh, as they have been forced to accept the way of life they live and brainwashed or forced to comply to their evil rulers

    God Bless

  4. Wow – I find it amazing that Centurion can find “threats” against the US in what Klaus has written.

    He then celebrates the destruction of a “pathetic” nation.

    As for not needing people “like him” – by which I assume he means Germanic people in general – Centurion has displayed his complete ignorance of history and military technological advancement.

    Germany was far ahead of the allies in military technology.

    They had developed jet engine powered fighters.

    They had developed rocket engine powered missiles.

    They were a few steps away from nuclear weapons.

    Had it not been for a stupid leader who wasted so much of their military capability on a futile invasion of Russia the second world war could have turned out completely differently.

    That this is true is borne out by the granting of a new home and lifestyle by the American government to the best of the German rocket scientists and the rapid improvement in American technology thereafter.

    The German scientists that Russia “stole” obviously made a significant contribution.

    The last thing we need right now is stupid insulting comments like the one above.

    The Germans were way ahead of the world then.

    Besides the populations of most countries are split on things like going to war and therefore half of the people who die in these wars – the civilian populations – are basically innocent.

    The last thing we need right now is stupid insulting comments like the one above because someone doesn’t have the comprehension to see there are still lessons to be learned from history.

  5. It would serve our Israel serving politicians right if they pushed the Russians, Chinese and Koreans to do an EMP attack on North America. Then the fools in the federal and state and provincial Capitols would be in the dark, broke and besieged by hordes of spoiled rotten, starving citizens who can’t afford a pot to piss in. Hello 6th century.

  6. Rosco, the only lesson from history is that the victors write it and the history we know isn’t the truth. Sure there is some truth in there when it suits the powers that be agenda.

    World Wars or World Culls you decide?

    When the establishment denies the commingled Ice Age, it isn’t stupid. It’s a cleverly planned strategy: Lulling billions into a false security, all the while setting them up to be culled by the cold and starvation.

    And yes Centurion needs to relax. The ordinary people no matter there race, creed or nationality are not the enemy. Fighting amongst ourselves is exactly what the ‘elites, want.

    Ancient sources describe the priestess using “laurel” to inspire her prophecies. Several alternative plant candidates have been suggested including Cannabis, Hyoscyamus, Rhododendron and Oleander. Harissis claims that a review of contemporary toxicological literature indicates that oleander causes symptoms similar to those shown by the Pythia, and his study of ancient texts shows that oleander was often included under the term “laurel”. The Pythia may have chewed oleander leaves and inhaled their smoke prior to her oracular pronouncements and sometimes dying from the toxicity. The toxic substances of oleander resulted in symptoms similar to those of epilepsy, the “sacred disease,” which may have been seen as the possession of the Pythia by the spirit of Apollo.[32]

    I notice Gore being shown beathing fire over the world, what has he been smoking, if its any good, can I have some before it runs out, or some Government tax inspector places a Carbon Credit tax on it.

  8. Thanks again Dr. Kaiser. You know where the world is heading. The USA-NATO have been positioning forces and weapons, and building up for World War 3 since the end of World War 2.
    Oliver Stone’s epic series “Untold History of the United States” spells this out in great detail.

    How will World War 3 end? Einstein said it best: “…World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.”

    Peace from Canada
