the idiocy of these goats

According to Our Gods Wear Spandex, a guide to the esoteric underpinnings of superhero myths by Chris Knowles, Arthur Conan Doyle fell out with Houdini because he refused to believe the latter wasn’t really magic. That would have been a funny conversation.

Also, Scientology-founder L Ron Hubbard teamed up with the American rocket scientist Jack Parsons in 1946 and tried to summon the Scarlet Woman, mate with her and bring about the Apocalypse. Aleister Crowley, top occultist, said, ‘I get fairly frantic when I contemplate the idiocy of these goats.’
