  1. Ryan Murtha : Is anyone interested in dissecting the Oxford argument? Maybe just for the sake of being objective and thorough we should. Of course Oxford was a ward of Bacon's uncle Lord Burghley, so any biographical correspondences can be adduced in Bacon's favor as well, he would have been well aware of De Vere's biography. If we are looking at a group of writers, is Oxford one of them? If I remember Larry told me he and Bacon didn't get along, but I haven't read anything about that. Many people are persuaded by these arguments, I haven't gotten into them deeply but I tend to think the whole thing has been manufactured as a smokescreen, as someone put it once to me. It could be seen in a wider context of pretty severe hostility towards Bacon in academia, the things they have said are just incredible. My intuitive guess is that because of Bacon's contribution to science, if he were acknowledged as the principal genius behind Shakespeare, the academic community would have to deal with a colossus and his influence would be hegemonic, everyone would have to defer to him and philosophy departments would probably be eviscerated, nobody would want to read people like Wittgenstein and Derrida etc. Nietzsche knew, but just as he became a Baconian he went nuts, go figure. I used a quote from him as an epigraph in my book, and I had the hardest time finding it in a search, I had to go to the actual book and find it. Google is hiding the fact that Nietzsche was a Baconian. These two links cast light on how Ben Jonson and Bacon thought very little of Edward de Vere. This article explores in Ben Jonson's "Staple of News" what he thought of DeVere. (search the page for DeVere past the mid point of article) https://sirbacon.org/bjonsffolio.htm Bacon being a non blood related cousin to DeVere both being temporary wards to the Cecil Family was able to observe DeVere up close and use it as grist for the mill. So it's no surprise that Bacon would write about him in an unfavorable light in "All's Well That End's Well. " Also Bacon would have known about the tragic incident that took place in William Cecil's household (Lord Burleigh) where DeVere stabbed to death a young unarmed cook. Cecil got DeVere off the legal hook for that. Oxfordians today overlook DeVere's despicable character because they have to. Hard to defend a spoiled rich kid misogynist who did not take all of knowledge to be his province for the betterment and relief of man's estate. https://sirbacon.org/oxfordallswell.htm

  4. The two men being Raleigh and Bacon? Cervantes? What references are you using for your understanding?
  5. Thou Standest Before a Mysterie! Congratulations Ryan!
  6. That's A. L. Rowse, a Stratfordian embarrassment. When the prima facie Oxfraudians call themselves "Legally trained Oxfraudians" along with their "imposing, intimidating photograph of the gavel," as Christina states, it makes me laugh and think of Putin's pernicious invaders in Ukraine that he spins as a "Peacekeepers Operation." One thing I can say about Francis Bacon is he did a pretty good job of revealing and concealing his Authorship so that every generation would have a chance to engage and test out his notions on Mediocra Firma and The Four Idols while undergoing the inquiry and treasure hunt. What does anyone think of the use of Stylometrics by some researchers as a way of determinating Authorship?

  9. Hello Yann Your videos are creatively well done and Great. Thou standst before a Mysterie! Would you consider having your own dedicated page on sirbacon that links to all your Bacon videos? Lawrence
  10. in a tribute Speech to Bacon said, " 'Give me a deep-crown'd bowl, that I may sing In raising him, the wisdom of my king.' What do you think Jonson means by that?

  14. 5.4 After the Fall – The Baconian Enlightenment Postponed For the more adventurous and patient reader there is a mine of supplementary information i n the writings of Alfred Dodd, but be warned that Dodd was a fanatical believer in the claim that Bacon wrote the Shakespeare plays. If one can sift out the credulity and hero worship from Dodd's writings, there is a useful quantity of historical information that can be separated from Dodd's thesis.)

  16. If I had to choose a fav Shakespeare Play would say The Tempest. It operates as an allegory and culminates Bacon research on Nature and Man and the Elements. Brilliantly conceived story and how to deal with power and the human condition and reconciliation.
