Priory of Sion Debunking Articles


Robin Crookshank Hilton – Peddling Plantard Today

Paul Smith's review is nothing but a long diatribe of personal insults, pedantry and obfuscation with little or no substance.

Not worth reading.

Michael Baigent Profile and The Jesus Papers Reviewed

Paul Smith again conducts an almost a personal vendetta against Michael Baigent, particularly against his Jesus Bloodline proposal.

If a Jesus bloodline is not important then what are the first 17 verses of Matthew all about? Why is it important to give all of the lineage from David up to Joseph husband of Mary mother of Jesus? Why is it that this "Carpenter" is given this status?

If Jesus was 'King of the Jews' as the Magi said why aren't the reasons that this King failed to produce an heir spelled out in the New Testament, if only to give reason's why he didn't marry and he didn't reproduce.

Two Faked Photographs

Smith doesn't know that they're faked only that they may not be Beringer Sauniere. Trivia in its most basic form.

Sion Revelation - More Fantasies From Picknett and Prince

More fantasies from Paul Smith.

This is the most interesting thing here.

"During the late 1980s Geoffrey Basil Smith informed me that he destroyed his Priory of Sion archive when I enquired about the correspondence he received from Philippe de Chèrisey – Picknett and Prince in turn claim that Geoffrey Basil Smith showed this material to them in 1999 and yet Geoffrey Basil Smith cannot prove their allegations to be correct because he recently informed me that these letters "mysteriously vanished". This is fact."

So what was in this document? His laundry bill? You cannot prove your allegations to be correct either. The Sion Revelation has 530 pages and yet this is the best he can do. Just a personal and prejudiced opinion that its all fantasies.

You will notice that Smith hasn't said too much about this book, that's entirely because he knows that his entire argument has been blown away by this book.

An excellent read highly recommended.

Pierre Plantard the Traditionalist Roman Catholic

For once I agree with Paul Smith the Priory of Sion and CIRCUIT was a pro Vichy organisation, this only makes their claims ultra right wing and sinister it does not make all of their claims incorrect.

"The 1956 version of the Priory of Sion terminated in the same year that it was formed and had nothing to do with the Crusades, Godfrey de Bouillon, Merovingians, the Knights Templar or with the village of Rennes-le-Château – all these things became added when Pierre Plantard formed a partnership with Gérard de Sède during the early 1960s and these elements represented a literary deal between the two people as part of a book-selling agenda."

A totally and utterly wild guess with no substance whatsoever born of a deep prior prejudice. One thing is clear about these three people (Plantard, de Chèrisey and de Sède), they didn't have a clue what the real story was and were simply used by others as part of an agenda to put out the concept of a Jesus bloodline.

Wikipedia - Priory of Sion

Unfortunately Wikipedia quotes Paul Smith an awful lot. A trend that will be reversed very shortly.

Rennes-le-Château Debunked - Debunked MY AS-pect

Priory of Sion Debunked

For the record Pierre Plantard has ONLY confessed in court to not being a descendent of the Merovingian Bloodline and that he had made up (or simply guessed) an accusation that Roger Patrice Pelat had been a member of the Priory of Sion.

In early March 1981, French president François Mitterrand went in the Aude valley or more exactly to Razès, the area in the south of Carcassonne containing Rennes le Chateau. The goal of its visit was the tiny village and it was filmed in high profile and yes he was looking for votes. Mitterrand had been instrumental in the construction of the glass pyramid at the Louvre and several other esoteric constructions.

With him in his visit was a Roger Patrice Pelat, a French billionaire and was often seen in the French President's entourage. However Pelat died suddenly and unexpectedly during this visit. Plantard had accused Pelat as being the Priory of Sion Grand Master (bearing mind that Plantard had resigned this position some years earlier and was by then out of the loop). In an investigation into corruption against Pelat the French police took all of the Priory of Sion documents from Plantard's house and forced Plantard to give witness under oath in front of a judge Thierry Jean Pierre. It is here that Mr. Plantard de St Clair, the pretentious Saint allegedly claiming with the throne of France, and the PR rep at the public forefront claiming Grand Master of the Priory of Sion admitted that he was not after all descended from the Merovingian bloodline and that he had made up the story about Pelat.

It may be that Plantard had been making an inspired guess for it seems that Roger Patrice Pelat was not satisfied simply to be a billionaire and had been convicted of corruption in dealings with several chemical companies. However Plantard was under the impression Pelat was also a Priory of Sion initiate and on February 6, 1989 Pelat was accused by Plantard of being the Grand Master of the Priory of Sion.

At no point does Plantard say that the Priory of Sion was a hoax made up by himself and Philippe de Cherisey. But there has been a slight of hand here making Plantard's none bloodline confession a confirmation that it was ALL a hoax. It wasn't, we have NO evidence that this is the case but alas Pierre Plantard and Philippe de Chèrisey are no longer around to defend themselves.

IF (and it's a big if) the Priory of Sion has been around for centuries then they would try to defend themselves from exposure even appointing sympathetic judges and using intimidation in order to preserve their anonymity. Remember the accusation is that the Priory of Sion (or the hidden order behind it; a Priory is after all a public portal to an Abbey) have been controlling everything for 1000 years. Perhaps they still are, including the forcing out of false confessions from former Grand Masters.

Priory of Sion Parchments

Priory of Sion and Jean Cocteau

That the Priory of Sion is a subversive and ultra right wing organisation is not news to most researchers. That the stories about it are all lies and nonsense because it's members have sympathies with the Nazis is a slight of hand that only the simple minded will fall for. That the Priory of Sion has right wing fascist tendencies merely reinforces the truth of it in most thinking and knowledgeable minds. Ergo Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion.

Priory of Sion Anti-Semitism

In the early 1930s the Nazis were sympathetic to all Jews who agreed to leave to form a homeland in Palestine. The only Jews that were persecuted by the Nazis where Jews who elected to stay in the respective homelands. This has been a policy of Sion from the early twentieth century.

Pierre Plantard's Criminal Convictions - A Chronology

Paul Smith is of the view that if a person has been dishonest once then he will always be dishonest and will always tell lies. In Paul Smith's world going to prison will never reform a person.

There's a point to this revelation of Henry Lincoln's real name I know there is. If only I can find it.

Two flags were allowed to fly in the Third Reich, the Swastika and the blue and white Zionist flag.

For the record I am of the opinion that the Priory of Sion is a sinister pro Fascist organisation, this however does not make everything they say null and void.

Bottom line

If the parchments lead to a discovery then all that went before regarding is validity are null and void. So try to solve it, even if it was made in the 1960s, don't abandon them as this is unscientific.

Please read the following in context


Protocols of the Learned elders of Sion

    1. I pass now to the method of confirming the dynastic roots of King David to the last strata of the earth.

    2. This confirmation will first and foremost be included in that which to this day has rested the force of conservatism by our learned elders of the conduct of the affairs of the world, in the directing of the education of thought of all humanity.

    3. Certain members of the seed of David will prepare the kings and their heirs, selecting not by right of heritage but by eminent capacities, inducting them into the most secret mysteries of the political, into schemes of government, but providing always that none may come to knowledge of the secrets. The object of this mode of action is that all may know that government cannot be entrusted to those who have not been inducted into the secret places of its art ....

    4. To these persons only will be taught the practical application of the aforenamed plans by comparison of the experiences of many centuries, all the observations on the politico-economic moves and social sciences - in a word, all the spirit of laws which have been unshakably established by nature herself for the regulation of the relations of humanity.

    5. Direct heirs will often be set aside from ascending the throne if in their time of training they exhibit frivolity, softness and other qualities that are the ruin of authority, which render them incapable of governing and in themselves dangerous for kingly office.

    6. Only those who are unconditionally capable for firm, even if it be to cruelty, direct rule will receive the reins of rule from our learned elders.

    7. In case of falling sick with weakness of will or other form of incapacity. kings must by law hand over the reins of rule to new and capable hands.

    8. The king's plan of action for the current moment, and all the more so for the future, will be unknown, even to those who are called his closest counselors.


    9. Only the king and the three who stood sponsor for him will know what is coming.

    10. In the person of the king who with unbending will is master of himself and of humanity all will discern as it were fate with its mysterious ways. None will know what the king wishes to attain by his dispositions, and therefore none will dare to stand across an unknown path.

    11. It is understood that the brain reservoir of the king must correspond in capacity to the plan of government it has to contain. It is for this reason that he will ascend the throne not otherwise than after examination of his mind by the aforesaid learned elders.

    12. That the people may know and love their king, it is indispensable for him to converse in the market-places with his people. This ensures the necessary clinching of the two forces which are now divided one from another by us by the terror.

    13. This terror was indispensable for us till the time comes for both these forces separately to fall under our influence.

    14. The king of the Jews must not be at the mercy of his passions, and especially of sensuality: on no side of his character must he give brute instincts power over his mind. Sensuality worse than all else disorganizes the capacities of the mind and clearness of views, distracting the thoughts to the worst and most brutal side of human activity.

    15. The prop of humanity in the person of the supreme lord of all the world of the holy seed of David must sacrifice to his people all personal inclinations.

    16. Our supreme lord must be of an exemplary irreproachable.
