IGNORANCE INVITES

March 7, 2014

The dominant feature in my posts is probably my interest in the supernatural. Interesting things in current affairs creep in often enough, but religion and the supernatural have pride of place. I include the Christian religion as part of the supernatural because that’s where it belongs. Sometimes people see it as completely different, but that […]

OUT THERE OR IN THE MIND?

July 7, 2013

My blogging, reading and, writing are moving towards the mystic and the supernatural.  That’s odd for a person whose life span falls in a time when science is king, religion has been ‘disproved’ and no reality is recognised except that what we can sense for ourselves, or with the instruments  science has provided (like the telescope). Yet exclusive reliance on […]

SOMETHING OUT THERE?

May 27, 2013

I have written books with a witchdoctor heroine and become quite obsessed with the existence or otherwise of ‘unkown forces’. I don’t use the word ‘supernatural’ because I am not sure what ‘natural’ means. It makes sense for me to have this interest, because I am a Christian and Christians believe in ‘something out there’. […]

THANK GOD FOR IGNORANCE

May 12, 2013

Thank God for the centuries of ignorance when science did not afflict us with the truth and people were free to populate the universe with a glorious variety of supernatural beings. The trouble with science is that once reality is known it becomes much more difficult to create convincing alternatives. Once you KNOW it becomes […]

WITCHCRAFT AND PROOF

April 6, 2013

Nshila Ileloka here – fictional heroine of Chris Elgood books. I saw a tweet about assisting married friends to conceive. Could imitative magic help? Failing body parts, would names on back of images be enough? I believe one should make every effort to do the job thoroughly. Witchdoctoring works through a spiritual agency and the […]

ABU QATADA

March 27, 2013

Nshila talking – consultant assassin, witchdoctor and heroine of Chris Elgood’s three books.  I am disappointed to hear no whisper of some minion in the British Security Service searching for me. It’s just not possible that they have no contingency plan for eliminating Abu Qatada. The legal charade has gone on so long that somebody must have considered […]

WITCHPOWER SIX

February 28, 2013

Nshila Ileloka speaking again – fictional witchdoctor and consultant assassin. I am still annoyed that skills like mine are dismissed because they are seen as lacking scientific credibility. At a time when huge numbers of people are interested in paranormal ideas – and serious scientists are speculating about alternative universes – why is there so […]

WITCHPOWER FIVE

February 18, 2013

Nshila speaking. My present thinking about what works and what does not work, and why, is that the real power lies with the spirit agent who responds to my need. The procedures and artefacts (rituals, bones, etc) may or may not be aids to concentration, and any aid they provide may be to the spirit […]

WITCHPOWER FOUR

February 11, 2013

Nshila speaking.  Here is the first conclusion I have drawn from rigorous examination of my witchcraft activity. I am convinced that so-called magical actions are useless unless energised by the spirit in charge of these things.  So why do rules and procedures and spells exist at all? I think that they are contact points established by the […]

WITCHPOWER THREE

February 5, 2013

This is Nshila talking – the fictional heroine of three books. In my last post I explained a pseudo-scientific experiment I was planning to test the efficacy of my witchdoctoring procedures. It failed, but also helped me. I set up my control by doing all the usual things and Ellie McFain ignored her usual dog-walking […]
