  1. 'There is no Shakespeare connection to Freemasons.' "It is an immense ocean that surrounds the island of Truth." -Francis Bacon I've met my share of "Laurel & Hardy" type Freemasons that have more interest in Casino Nights with their brethren than studying Alfred Dodd's works https://sirbacon.org/downloads/Dodd-Alfred-Shakespeare-Creator-of-Freemasonry.pdf and George Tudhope's Bacon-Masonry https://sirbacon.org/tudhope.htm. They just need the right oars in the water to begin the journey thru the Pillars of Hercules. A great gap exists that is Lodged in their history and closed attitude. The right response from them would be : " we don't know and would be open to an advancement in learning, so where can we be directed to read a worthy brother's work on the matter?"
  2. The Rosy Cross is Coming for the relief of man's estate......
  3. Dear B'Hivers, I LOVE the passion of this group. We are listening and hoping to do a show that will make you proud. As Kate says, we aim to raise awareness about this amazing man and his life. Keep the debate and passion coming, whatever your view! That's the beauty of Bacon's legacy. Keep sharing and if you tweet, I will retweet. I have been contacted by the chair of the SFB society who is very keen to help and spread the word across the world. Happy to do a Skype chat with you all one day! That would be FUN! Take care Tom May 1, 2023

  5. " Shakespeare's Imagery and what it tells us" Book by Professor Caroline Sturgeon, Stratfordian "I have not to my knowledge ever been answered by advocates of it." Roger Stritmatter, Oxfordian Reply to an Oxfordian, Roger Stritmatter, who conveniently uses a Stratfordian Professor, Caroline Spurgeon's short sighted book on Image Patterns and Shakespeare that instead ends up vaildating Bacon's imagery being Shakespearean and not negating it. @Roger Stritmatter In 1969 two writers in Baconiana set the record straight on Professor Spurgeon's book on Shakespeare Imagery. Spurgeon has an Image Problem. "In seeking Shakespeare she has discovered Bacon. " https://sirbacon.org/spurgeon.htm
  6. Suprisingly Fox didn't bring up Dominion's nefarious past.
  7. Roger Stritmatter responds back : Lawrence Gerald Mr. Gerald, my statement was quite correct and I am shocked that someone like yourself, with such an obviously incomplete and faulty comprehension of the Oxford case, should think it prudent to contradict me on such flimsy evidence. Unlike you, I will not try in this context to offer a summary that would require several books to complete. Most importantly, beyond the obvious discrepancy in the quantity and quality of evidence between the two theories, there is the small matter that compelling arguments against your theory, set forth in some cases more than a hundred years ago, by Robertson (style), Cole (patterns of Bible allusion), and Spurgeon (image patterns) all contradict your belief and have not to my knowledge ever been answered by advocates of it. Finally, would it be too much to ask you to stop making statements like "a person in your position"? That is really not, as I'm sure Alexander Waugh would say, "cricket." It is really just a disguised ad hominem, apparently compensating for a lack of research on your part. Good day.Write some books or articles. This matter will not be settled on youtube. https://shake-speares-bible.com/
  8. Another demonstration why people like Roger Stritmatter are not respected outside their "trump" like followers.
  9. Lawrence Gerald 5 days ago (edited) @Ron Roffel Pedigree is one thing but lack of character is another something Edward de Vere is missing. Alan Nelson makes this abundantly clear in "Monstrous Adversary." The Play "All's Well That Ends Well" also bears this out on DeVere's misogyny. https://sirbacon.org/oxfordallswell.htm Roger Stritmatter 1 day ago @EMETH ALETHEIA Unlike Baconians, Oxfordians use many documents and many forms of evidence to establish their case. It is quite true that the the 1632 memorials to Bacon are full of his praises. But it has also long ago been established that Bacon's prose style, his pattern of images, and his use of the Bible, are quite distinct from Shakespeare's. Whatever his role in "Shakespeare" was, beyond being Jonson's close friend and Oxford's "cousin" (as he refers to him in surviving correspondence), he did not write the plays and poems. Roger Stritmatter 4 hours ago @Lawrence Gerald Citing Alan Nelson about Oxford's character is like citing Donald Trump about constitutional law. Lawrence Gerald 0 seconds ago "Unlike Baconians, Oxfordians use many documents and many forms of evidence to establish their case." A most misleading statement made by someone in your position who should know better. The Bacon-Shakespeare Manuscript formerly known as the Northumberland Manuscript along with Bacon's Shakespeare Notebook The Promus are documents that establish Bacon's bond with evidence of his authorship. Bacon referred to himself as a " Concealed Poet." The 1626 Eulogies or memorials known as "Manes Verulamani" reveal what Bacon's peers (along with Ben Jonson) knew and thought by highly acknowledging Bacon's dramatic and poetic abilities. Years later the poet Percy Shelley said ‘Lord Bacon was a Poet’, apparently without ever having considered the authorship question. In case your not familiar with the Bacon Documents see : The Bacon Shakespeare Manuscript https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDn8gdBqnIM and Francis Bacon's Notebook, The Promus, the Source for Hundreds of Parallels with his Shakespeare Works written in Bacon's hand BEFORE the plays were performed and published. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTfUbKb7KqU

  11. Liked "nor so in his bloated and tedious The Baconian Heresy a work marred by selective suppression and gross misrepresentation of the facts and the evidence. " Thanks AP for saying it the way it is. Stratfordians like to refer back on Robertson's very low calorie book as evidence to support their Blind stupidity while demonstrating The Four Idols in action
  12. We can only thank A Waugh for this new video that has inadvertently given rise to Yann's astute discovery. Tell a falsity and uncover a truth. The antithetical nature of the Shakespeare authorship .
  13. Thou Standeth Before a Mystery. Waugh just demonstrated how he is a FRaud and conveniently blind to who Ben Jonson was lauding. He gaslights The Four Idols with his own brand of pomposity and reality distortion . He may have more Nobleman "gas" in his tank then the poor Edward de Vere who was infamously banished for letting one slip by in front of the Queen. Oxfordians desperately need to show that Ben Jonson was in their camp and this can be seen in the disaster film "Annoymous" aka "Erroneous" by director Roland Emmerich, who decided to fictionalize that Ben Jonson and DeVere were collaborators. This distortion of the historical reality contaminates the minds of their naive followers in order to maintain and uphold their authority as redeemers of the authorship. But all they are doing is replacing one outdated tradition with a very flawed candidate. We all know that Ben Jonson held the greatest esteem for Francis Bacon and his book "Discoveries" bears this out. He would not have written these remarks about his "Chief" unless he knew him intimately while protecting the mystery surrounding his true identity.
  14. Comedy and Tragedy are made from the same blind spot "Dominus Verulamous cannot be Sir Francis Bacon."-Alexander Waugh Anyone want to volunteer to enlighten Mr. Waugh?
  15. "He made a great discovery but, for me, he missed the point, trying to make his finding to fit with the "1740" and "De Vere" theory."
  16. Jardine and Stewart's book would have have been more aptly titled, "Hostage to Truth"
  17. Would have been great if Mark Twain had a follow up book entitled, "Is Francis Bacon Dead?"
  18. Re : Joe Walsh's song : I thought about not sharing this link below and then did anyway. https://sirbacon.org/antitheta.htm

  20. A. Phoenix wrote "Although for some reason Sir Roy Strong did not wish to draw to the attention of his readers the outer-cover and original contents of the Northumberland MSS, or Bacon’s collection of MSS, not least the Shakespeare plays Richard II and Richard III, at least we are now more able to appreciate fully its relation to the Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth. " This makes Sir Roy weak.
  21. I met Charles Hamilton in Berkeley, CA at some event a few months before he passed away in 1996. I found him to be quite full of himself and certainly knew very little about William Shakespeare and even less about Francis Bacon as do all biased Stratfordian leaning writers. As you state Eric, "trying to make his data fit his Stratfordian theory, " which compromises his reputation as any kind of respected authority. Bacon would have described Hamilton as the embodiment of The Four Idols of the Marketplace.
  22. British Library authorities support misinformation as seen in Andrew Dickson's article that suggests that "The Book of Sir Thomas More" "is the only surviving manuscript in Shakespeare's hand." https://www.bl.uk/shakespeare/articles/wretched-strangers-shakespeares-plea-for-tolerance-towards-immigrants
