Mathis subscribes to quite a number of conspiracy theories, usually by the effect of "X person faked their death", "Y event was a hoax/staged" or "Z is an intelligence asset". Given that belief in conspiracy theories is often motivated by a sense of "special-ness", and Mathis claims to have overturned almost all mathematics and science, this isn't surprising.
- The Boston Marathon bombing was faked.
- The Sandy Hook mass shooting is a "scripted tragedy".
- Unsurprisingly, he's also a birther and 9/11 truther.
- All major internet sites, NASA, all universities, mainstream physics and basically everything else (like bookstores) are infiltrated by the CIA.
- John Lennon faked his death and is currently living in Canada.
- The Zodiac killings were faked.
- Stephen Hawking died and was replaced by an impostor years before his reported death.
- The Lincoln assassination was faked.
- The English Revolution was faked.
- That every single historical figure since at least the French Revolution, and perhaps since the Renaissance, Including Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler and the Romanovs has been a "gay Jewish actor" completely controlled by "mostly Jewish industrialists" and had their deaths faked.
- Every event, including the sinking of the USS Indianiapolis, the sinking of the Titanic, the Battle of Iwo Jima, Custer's Last Stand and literally everything else was either faked entirely or almost entirely, with fake photos and storylines.
- That since at least Shakespeare (who was a committee led by the conspirators) there has been an intelligence conspiracy to dumb people down by making entertainment and/or education be crappy or irrational on purpose so that the people who consume it become less logical or rational and thus less likely to oppose or comprehend the conspiracy.
- That everything above and more that happened since WW2 was a part of "Operation Chaos/Kaos", which is referenced frequently many of his papers. The point is to make people confused, irrational and "turn their minds to mush" so that people don't question physics establishment, resist the conspiracy and buy more things they don't need.
- Just... you name it, he has a theory about it.
Mathis regularly adds dozens of other equally absurd conspiracies.
[Addendum October 10, 2021: As you know, the assassination famously took place on the Ides of March, March 15. Why? We are told it is because the conspirators found it to be an auspicious date. However, we now have a different explanation, given to us by the Dido/Anna story above. Anna became Anna Perenna, who became a favorite deity of the Romans. Her festival was held in her grove on the first mile marker of the Via Flaminia, on the first full Moon of the year. And when was that? Well, according to the old Roman calendar that was. . . the Ides of March. So the date is pointing back to Anna, “sister” of Dido, who just happened to be the ancestor of Caesar in direct line. Anna/Dido faked her death in both stories, so the writers of the Caesar script thought it would be clever to fake his death on that date.]
More indication the assassination was faked is the way it is still sold by mainstream (Phoenician) historians. At Wikipedia, on the page for Caesar's assassination, they have a section on the three causes of it. This is the first section on the page. But it is ludicrously weak and makes no sense. 1) Caesar allegedly failed to rise for senators visiting him. So what? The senate had long since been bypassed and everyone knew that. Caesar could have gotten up and farted in the face of each senator one by one, and it wouldn't have made any conceivable difference. 2) Two tribunes allegedly removed a wreath from a statue of Caesar, and he deposed them for it. Again, so what? Caesar had been doing much worse things for years, including banishing and killing people, so again this just looks like a
poorly manufactured story. 3) At Lupercalia Antony placed a diadem on Caesar's head, and Caesar removed it. We are told Caesar was testing his popularity, to see if he could crown himself king. But he was already dictator for life, and held all power. So what he called himself was beside the point. Just a few years later the Emperors were calling themselves gods, and no one took offense, least of all the Senate. So the fact that historians have always been trying so hard to sell this assassination is indication it is fake. If it was real, the real story would suffice. The truth sells itself and does not need manufactured fairy tales to embellish it.
The next section at Wikipedia is even worse, though again it sticks pretty close to written history. We are told there were around 60 conspirators, and that they even considered propositioning Antony. Really? We are told Trebonius had already approached Antony a few months earlier, but Antony declined. That makes no sense. Antony was Caesar's second in command. Approaching him to be in the conspiracy would have been the stupidest thing imaginable, since it would have gotten immediately back to Caesar.
But the biggest problem is the one we have seen many times before, from Abe Lincoln to Bobby Kennedy to Olof Palme: lack of a guard. We are supposed to believe a few middle aged senators with knives would be able to bypass Caesar's guard, made of trained soldiers. You are supposed to believe Caesar was walking around by himself, with no other protection than a toga, but that is ridiculous. Things didn't work that way, not in 1986, not in 1968, not in 1865, and not in 44BC.
And if it were to count others amused by his writings, I'd be one of them. I like Mathis' writings, I like his art, and if I'd have enough money to spare I'd even commission a portrait. If anything, he is honest besides being intelligent and having a free spirit attitude. So what some of his opinions are far fetched and idiosyncratic? Is he really asking to be given a blank mental 'health certificate'? Harsh judgement, hopefully meant as a joke, though.In short, this guy's mad and writes for himself, for his own amusement.
Miles Mathis is a controversial figure. Some people think that there is a collective behind that pen name. Some people link him to MI6 based on the Britishisms he sometimes uses in his essays. I was following his web site for a couple of years and made an offline copy of hundreds of PDF pages for future reference. A tell tale sign that he is not liked by MSM is the Google search results. He would be smeared as a cook and conspiracy advocate at any opportunity.What did you find convincing about the hypothesis since you posted about it and do you think he might be right?
I think this guy just likes to pick a historical character and find a way to turn them into the center of a fake death conspiracy, and then just run with it.
I did not quite read through the entire article, but I did find this portion a bit interesting in displaying his depth of historical reading:
So, his source is Wikipedia, and his method of developing a theory for historical revision is something along the lines of:
"We are told Caesar was testing his popularity, to see if he could crown himself king. But he was already dictator for life, and held all power. So what he called himself was beside the point."
Regarding his opinions, one that Caesar was gay and, two that he faked his death. I do not know about the second, but the first is a misnomer. Caesar was not gay, as such. What we call today 'gay' was differently regarded in the times we call antiquity. From my fairly inaccurate general knowledge , because it is difficult to know with certainty, regular and refined features in a man that might apply to the notion of a woman's beauty of were highly appreciated in a man's appearance. Sexual relations were not equated to marriage between a man and a woman and marriage itself was more a transactional affair rather than a moral social institution.
With this understanding of the aesthetic preferences and habitual sexual practices roman society in antiquity, today, many people would have an instantaneous 'Eww' reaction. For me Julius Caesar was an important historical figure for many different reasons. So, what if he was what we call today 'gay', I say good for him, if that made him happy. Certainly, the revelation makes no difference for me today.
Pliny the Elder said:Two of the Cæsars, one of whom was at the time prætor, and the other had previously discharged that office, and was the father of the Dictator Cæsar, died without any apparent cause, in the morning, while putting on their shoes; the former at Pisæ, the latter at Rome.
I think it is worthwhile to note that almost everyone on this forum could be viewed as 100% certifiable from an array of various outside perspectives.Miles Mathis is one of those cases where the skeptics are 100% correct. The guy is certifiable.
