There's a transuniversal nexus where creationism and conspiracy theory collides with UFO lore and stories about a lost race of ancient giants. It's called the History Channel. These are also some of the topics on tap at the Watchers Conference where L.A. Marzulli and Russ Dizdar will talk about fallen angels, Bible prophecy, and other things covered in their books.
"A lot of it will be about the idea of the giants in Genesis 6," says Marzulli, author of The Nephilim Trilogy. "What amazes all of us researching this stuff is that we know that the Bible is filled with supernatural events. If you take the supernatural events out of the Bible, there's not much left. But today a lot of so-called Christians are afraid to even look [at] or entertain the idea that the supernatural is manifesting."
Marzulli, who describes himself as a Biblical literalist, says America has a "truth embargo" in regard to aliens, giants, and the end times. "Anybody who talks about UFOs or lights in the sky is ridiculed," he says. "There aren't many folks looking into this stuff and connecting the dots. And those of us who are doing this full time realize that we're not in Kansas anymore."
Dizdar's portion of the Watchers event is custom-fit for conferees whose interests in conspiratorial esoterica lean more in the direction of 1980s-era "Satanic panic." Dizdar, like Marzulli, has been a guest on the late-night fringe history radio show Coast to Coast. He specializes in spiritual warfare, mind control, and Satanism.
"We will arm the people who come, and I mean arm them," Marzulli says. "We will let them know what's going on, and they can connect the dots for themselves."
