The Mothman Prophecies (censored movie scene)
The following is the censored movie scene script (theoretical version) taken from the original Hollywood movie “The Mothman Prophesies” – starring Richard Gere as John Klein in the movie:
“The Mothman Prophecies”
John Klein: Last week, my friend got a strange phone call from an entity, spirit, whatever. It seemed to know everything.
Alexander Leek: Like God? And it made predictions? And they came true?
John Klein: Yes. His name was Indrid Cold.
Alexander Leek: It’s perception, John. They appear differently to everyone. A voice, a light, a man, a monster. If your friend thinks he’s talking to God, he’s off by more than a few degrees.
John Klein: How do you explain it? It knows everything.
Alexander Leek: Hey, Look up there. If there was a car crash ten blocks away, that window washer would probably see it. That doesn’t mean he’s God or even smarter than we are. But from where he’s sitting, he can see a little further down the road.
John Klein: I think we can assume that these entities are more advanced than us. Why don’t they just come right out and tell us what’s on their minds?
Alexander Leek: You’re more advanced than a cockroach. But have you ever tried explained yourself to one of them? Or more specifically, have you ever tried explaining 9/11 truth to a cockroach like dirty Larry Silverstein?!
Alexander Leek: Answer me truthfully: Has the Mothman ever tried to call you on the phone?
John Klein: Yes, he has – but every time I hear the phone ring, I’m scared outta-ma bloomin’ mind. I almost wanna sing that Lady Gaga telephone song: “…Stop callin’, stop callin’ I don’t wanna know anymore, I lost my heart and ma soul on the dance floor…” You know how it goes. But now I just pull the phone cord out of its socket and pray for the ringing to stop. But it never does.
Alexander Leek: So what’s the point of smashing up your phone, if it’s still gonna ring anyway? How are you ever going to know what the Mothman is, if you can’t be bothered answering the phone? There are known knowns, unknown knowns and garden gnomes in homes with domes, so answer your frickin’ phones! Now go-away, freak! Stop bothering me. Stranger-danger! It’s not like I even know you. We just met out here on the street, so why am I even speaking to you?
[Next movie scene:]
Indrid Cold: This is The Mothman speaking aka Indrid Cold. I’ve been trying to contact you via your telephones, but every time the phone rings, you go a bit ballistic and pull the phone cord out of the electric socket, don’t you?
John Klein: [speaking hysterically] How, for the love of all that’s pure and holy on this good Earth, could you have possibly have known that?! How?!! Are you a genie in a bottle? Have I rubbed you the wrong way? Are you a ghost, a phantom, an overgrown flying insect – like A MOTH perhaps? Just who, or what, the hell are you?!!!
Indrid Cold: I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but things are a little bit more mundane than what you wildly imagine. I work for the CIA and we’ve got highly advanced thermal imaging technology, and other more sophisticated spy equipment to see behind walls. So we can see what you’re doing right now. I’m sorry to shatter all your dreams about a mythical Mothman creature, but I’m afraid all the spooky goings on, really is just us everyday human spooks up to our old tricks again. If I was really a Mothman, would I really have a typical American name like Indrid Cold? That’s a name more suited to a CIA spook. Even you should’ve guessed that. I told you my name was Mr. Cold like about a million times, so how could you not easily figure it out?! Anybody would think that you’re an extreme Beatrix Potter fan, following her obsession with naming insects and other lowly creatures in novels with typical human names – like Mr. Jeremy Fisher. What kind of name is that for a frickin’ frog! Do you know that she had the audacity to name a lizard, A LIZARD – wearing a black and gold waistcoat, with the name of our esteemed scientist Sir Isaac Newton. She was obviously suggesting that he was a reptilian shape-shifter. I suppose ya all now think it’s hilarious to name a moronic moth “Mr. Cold” after a CIA agent. You’re one dumb A-hole, aren’t you?
John Klein: [Embarrassed] I suppose so.
Indrid Cold: In my work as a spook, I found out that the ‘Powers That Be’ were already investigating the possible collapse of the bridge in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, but they were going to keep silent about it, in order to claim the expected huge insurance payout once it happened. They don’t care about human life. Most so-called ‘disasters’ concerning man-made objects throughout history have been allowed to happen – obviously for the criminal undercover insurance fraud that goes on. So why does nobody ever notice these things! I feel like I’m takin’ crazy pills! For example; the Titanic ship disaster, now that was a classic false-flag insurance fraud event. But only those in the know, really know about it, if you know what I mean…and don’t even get me started on the 9/11 insurance fraud crime of the millennium.
John Klein: [seething anger] You know I’m really fed up right now!
Indrid Cold: Why’s that?
John Klein: I’ve just spent like frickin’ months running around in this frickin’ spooky real-life true movie, and you’ve made it all so bloomin’ boring right now. No-one wants to go to watch a movie about a CIA spook pretending to be a Mothman. Nobody! This frickin’ movie is gonna be shite at the box office! It’ll flop I tell you! Flop!!!
Indrid Cold: Oh, so you want scary do you?
John Klein: [speaking angrily] Yeah I want frickin’ scary?! And a CIA spook hiding behind a curtain as a Mothman just ain’t frickin’ scary!
Indrid Cold: Okay, I see your point. Actually, spooks don’t have any intellectual power whatsoever. Donald Trump does all our thinking for us now, and we’re not allowed to contradict him. So how about I dress up as a Mothman wearing a Donald Trump face mask? How’s that for scary?
John Klein: Yeah, I suppose that might work, but you’ve still like totally ruined the movie script.
Indrid Cold: [speaking creepily] …So you want scary do you? Well I’ll tell you about scary: I’ve been in the CIA business for many years and nothing can be scarier than a cosmic black hole – stretching you from head to toe – death by black hole. However, what comes very close to that, is listening to a YouTube lecture by Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad. We used to train our CIA agents in the Navy on how to fall asleep in 2 minutes. It basically involves them sitting or lying down, then relaxing all their muscles and repeating to themselves: “Think of nothing, think of nothing…” to clear their minds for sleep. Often the technique didn’t work, so we’d play the first half of sheikh Abdul-Hakim’s lecture on Islamic mysticism to them, and they’d be nodding off like a baby in no-time. It’s a great cure for insomnia; works every time. Sheikh Abdul-Hakim’s teaching method is a bit like travelling into a cosmic black hole. Every possible concept or thought is fragmented and stretched to a singularity of absolute stupidity – so it’s much like training the mind to not think at all. That’s what an Oxford and Cambridge University education does to you. British education takes compartmentalized thinking to a whole new level – like MK-Ultra mind control on steroids.
John Klein: How can you dare say that about the greatest Oxford and Cambridge educated Islamic scholar to ever to have emerged from the Western world?
Indrid Cold: Look John, I’m just being open-minded. I don’t know much about Islamic history, but I do know that they were very keen on scientific reasoning. According to U.K. physicist Professor Jim Al-Khalili, early Muslims even invented the “scientific method” technique. Science scholars today state the following:
The origins of the scientific method hearken back to the Islamic World, not the Western one. Around 250 years before Roger Bacon expounded on the need for experimental confirmation of his findings, an Arab scientist named Ibn al-Haytham was saying the exact same thing.
Little is known about Ibn al-Haytham’s life, but historians believe he was born around the year 965, during a period marked as the Golden Age of Arabic science. His father was a civil servant, so the young Ibn al-Haytham received a strong education, which assuredly seeded his passion for science. He was also a devout Muslim, believing that an endless quest for truth about the natural world brought him closer to God. Sometime around the dawn of the 11th Century, he moved to Cairo in Egypt. It was here that he would complete his most influential work.
Indrid Cold: “His [Ibn al-Haytham] message is, ‘Don’t take my word for it. See for yourself,'” Jim Al-Khalili, a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Surrey noted in a BBC4 Special. However, in Abdal- Hakim’s lecture entitled “Muslim Theology and Islamic Mysticism”, the sheikh says that it was the norm for Islamic scholars to put blind trust in the Prophet and the Word of God, without question. He says:
“……and this view has been quite widespread: You can’t really use reason to determine ultimate truth. For instance, there was a very famous Syrian theologian, following the literalist Hambalee school of law called Ibn Qudama, who died in 1223. He was very representative of this literalist tendency, and he wrote a whole book about dialectical theology, which was all about how wicked and blasphemous it is to use the mind in order to attempt to penetrate the divine secrets. So he says: “We must renounce the evilness of theology as shown in its condemnation by our religious leaders, who are universally agreed that its advocates are partisans of heretical innovations and abominable error” – A good piece of medieval rhetoric there, but fairly characteristic of a certain type of literalist polemic against any use of reason in religious discourse. That kind of attitude was fairly common amongst the ulimah – the religious scholars, and we can clearly see that it was even more common amongst the non-intellectual masses. God and His prophet didn’t use philosophy; so how can we have the temerity to do so?” – Sheikh Abdal-Hakim Murad
Many Islamic scholars would strongly disagree with the sheikh’s assertion that early Muslims didn’t encourage rational thinking in religious discourse. For example, concerning Quranic translations, Mohammad Asad writes:
“…It is more than probable that one of the main reasons for this lack of appreciation [of the Quran] is to be found in that aspect of the Qur’an which differentiates it fundamentally from all other sacred scriptures: its stress on reason as a valid way to faith as well as its insistence on the inseparability of the spiritual and the physical (and, therefore, also social) spheres of human existence: the inseparability of man’s daily actions and behaviour, however “mundane”, from his spiritual life and destiny. This absence of any division of reality into “physical” and “spiritual” compartments makes it difficult for people brought up in the orbit of other religions, with their accent on the “supernatural” element allegedly inherent in every true religious experience, to appreciate the predominantly rational approach of the Qur’an to all religious questions.” [Source: The Message Of The Quran – Mohammad Asad translation with commentary, page 4]
John Klein: So why do Muslims say that everything has already been written, or predetermined by God to happen? What’s the point of existing, or even rationalizing anything at all, if everything has already been predetermined anyway?
Indrid Cold: I suppose it’s a bit like a scientist being able to predict with near 100% accuracy the results of a proposed experiment – due to knowing all the possible variables and reactions that may result – from all of the ingredients first put into the experiment for it to work. Now, if God is in control of everything, then how much more easier would it be for Him to know exactly what’s going to happen, with absolute accuracy? Just because you know what is going to happen, that doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t be happening in real-time, or that we don’t really have our own free-will to decide the outcome. With God all things are possible. Scientists say that we are all made of star stuff. So I believe that humans have the potential to turn themselves into a type of cosmic black hole. By not making the right ‘free-will’ choices, they can reach a singularity of absolute stupidity and thus self-destruct. If a person freely decides on self-destruction, then how can that ultimately be God’s fault, or His decision? I’m not in favour of the New Age philosophy that says that life is just a dream illusion, or that we’re travelling backwards in time in order to better know ourselves in a pre-determined world. That’s just escapist thinking to absolve people of their moral responsibilities in the here and now. This life is very real and very serious, so we’d better make the right choices now or they’ll be hell to pay – literally! If you want to know about the real Mothman, then read the verse in the Quran which speaks about people rising from their graves behaving like moths in the afterlife:
OH, the sudden calamity! How awesome the sudden calamity! And what could make thee conceive what that sudden calamity will be? [It will occur] on the Day when men will be like moths swarming in confusion, and the mountains will be like fluffy tufts of wool…. [Quran: 101:1-5]
If people are spiritually blind in this life, for example; by turning their backs on the poor and downtrodden, then they’ll also be blind in the hereafter – hence their behaviour being like blind moths, rushing towards the heavenly light – because there are none so blind as those who WILL NOT see. Moths are often used as an analogy for spiritual blindness. For example, Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was alleged to have said that he protects his ummah (community) by stopping them from behaving like blind moths, and thus burning themselves in hell-fire:
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the parable of myself and the people is that of a man who kindled a fire and when it lighted what was around it, some moths and insects started falling into the fire. The man tried to prevent them from falling in, but they overpowered him and rushed into the fire. Likewise, I take hold of your belts in order to prevent you from falling into the Hellfire, but you insist on falling into it.”[Source: Sahih Bukhari 6118, Sahih Muslim 2284]
John Klein: So who would you say was the very first Mothman Messenger?
Indrid Cold: You’re frickin’ obsessed with moths! The Mothman ain’t the only scary thing in this world you know! [Mr. Cold sarcastically imitates Mr. Klein:] Oooh, it’s the Mothman, run for the hills! It’s the great big fat hairy Mothman… Seriously, you’re behaving like a child – a child, I tell you!
John Klein: So what else could possibly be scarier in a Mothman movie?
Indrid Cold: What’s really frickin’ scary is Steve De’ak being able to prophesy that fake planes were used on 9/11 – by actually reading some science books and paying attention to the truth for a change, unlike most so-called ‘truthers’ doing absolutely nothing to help solve the crime of the millennium. The only Mothman-like prediction that Dr. Richard Gage can think of, concerning 9/11, is that jet planes hitting steel behave a lot like eggs when they pass through an egg cutter. Seriously, does anyone actually believe that baloney?! Since when has an egg ever bent egg-cutter steel in the same way that the alleged planes bent the steel of the Twin Towers?
John Klein: Yeah, that’s frickin’ scary alright. Hold on! What if Steve De’ak is the real mothman?
Indrid Cold: I’m trying to have an intellectual conversation with you, and all you can do is think about frickin’ moths. You’re obsessed with moths! For heaven’s sake stop it!
John Klein: Well De’ak’s surname sounds a lot like the Hebrew word “Da’at” meaning “hidden knowledge” at the heart of the “tree of life”, and Steve, undoubtedly, knows a hell of a lot, don’t he? Hey, movie producer, why isn’t Steve De’ak in this scary horror movie?!
Steve De’ak: [appearing suddenly outta nowhere as The Mothman] “I am in it!”
John Klein and Indrid Cold: [together, screaming scared] Aaaahhhhh!!!!
Steve De’ak: [speaking casually] Hi. I’ve been eavesdropping on your conversation. Yes, I am indeed the one and only Mothman. My name’s De’ak or Da’at – which means “hidden knowledge”. Ask me anything and I’ll instantly know what it is and tell you.
John Klein: What’s your favourite colour?
Steve De’ak: [acting annoyed] Seriously, I ask you to ask me anything and all you can ask me is “what’s your favourite colour?” What are you some kinda sissy snowflake freak? Well, okay, now that you’ve asked that stupid question; my favourite colour is red, because it’s an acronym for “Reason Educates Deniers” – R-E-D, RED! I intend to educate all deniers of real knowledge, such as that of 9/11 truth. So beware the wrath of The Mothman! [suddenly spreads his wings and takes flight]
John Klein and Indrid Cold: [together, screaming again in fright at the Mothman] Aaaahhhhh!!!!
