Murder in the Name of god, QAnon, and Unproved Myths

Matthew Taylor Coleman, age a 40-year-old surfing instructor, husband, father, and QAnon devotee and fervent Trump believer, drove his children — 2-year-old Kaleo and 10-month-old Roxy — into Mexico, away from their mother and their vacation, and said “he believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them.”1 Coleman told investigators he was “enlightened by QAnon,2 popularized by Donald J. Trump (the twice-impeached, one-term president, two-time popular vote loser and serial rapist) and Illuminati conspiracy theories and was receiving visions and signs revealing that his wife … possessed serpent DNA and had passed it onto his children.” Rather of not Coleman was at the Capitol seige by angry seditionists and others who believed that they had a god-directed right to overthrow the government and install Trump as their god’s Chosen One who would reign unchallenged until his brother Jesus descended in glory to rule over the world purified of non-white christian heterosexual evangelicals, he had to obey QAnon’s warning to rid the world of demons–starting with his own babies.

Matthew Coleman is in Protective Custody with “Nothing but a Bible”

Matthew Taylor Coleman told federal investigators “he was saving the world from monsters.” He was only one of a growing number of one-time sane people turned conspiracy theorist Trump-loving cold-blooded murderers, who murdered his two young children with a shoot of a fishing spear into the checks to his 10-month-old daughter and 2-year-old son on August 9, 2021, leaving them to die on a ranch in Mexico fearing they had serpent-DNA3 that was passed on by his wife.4 Throughout history, women have been feared to have sexual relations with demons, serpents, monsters, and aliens and pass it to their children. The Bible mentions the Lilith only once, as a dweller in waste places (Isaiah 34:14: וּפָגְשׁוּ צִיִּים אֶת־אִיִּים וְשָׂעִיר עַל־רֵעֵהוּ יִקְרָא אַךְ־שָׁם הִרְגִּיעָה לִּילִית וּמָצְאָה לָהּ מָנוֹחַ׃)5, but the characterization of the Lilith or the lili (in the singular or plural) as a seducer or slayer of children has a long pre-history in ancient Babylonian religion.

J. A. Scurlock writes, “The lilû-demons and their female counterparts the lilitu or ardat lilî-demons were hungry for victims because they had once been human; they were the spirits of young men and women who had themselves died young.” These demons “slipped through windows into people’s houses looking for victims to take the place of husbands and wives whom they themselves never had.” Another, related demoness was Lamashtu, who threatened new-born babies and “had a disagreeable taste for human flesh and blood.”

Adam and Eve in Garden, Michelangelo portrayal of Lilith: Adam, the tree a symbol for the penis, and Eve: the forbidden fruit was the male semen

The figures of Lamashtu and the lilû and lilitu demons eventually converged to form one type of evil figure that seduced men and women and attacked children. This evolved from the demonic figure of Lilith, who  is a demonic figure in Judaic mythology, supposedly the primordial she-demon and alternatively first wife of Adam. 6 The liliths are known particularly from the Aramaic incantation bowls from Sassanian and early Islamic Iraq and Iran (roughly 400–800 C.E.). Coleman claimed he had “nothing but a Bible.” In Genesis 1-5 there is the myth of Adam and Eve, but in two different “creation” narratives with two distinct perspectives. Adam and Eve are not named. Instead, god created humankind in god’s image (meaning that the god enjoyed both genders genitalia: hermaphroditism (or intersex) who reproduces gametes associated with both male and female gentelia) and instructed them to multiply and to be stewards over everything else that the god made. In the second narrative, god fashions Adam from red dust and places him in the Garden of Eden. Adam is told that he can eat freely of all the trees in the garden, except for a tree of the knowledge of good and evil (sperm). Subsequently, Eve (that which lives, not a woman but a helper or servant) is created from one of Adam’s ribs to be his companion. They are innocent and unembarrassed about their nakedness. However, a serpent (one of the common images given to Lilith) convinces Eve to eat fruit from the forbidden tree, and helper gives some of the fruit to Adam. These acts give them additional knowledge, but it gives them the ability to conjure negative and destructive concepts such as shame and evil. God later curses the serpent who originally walked upright with Adam to crawl upon the ground. God prophetically tells the woman and the man what will be the consequences of their sin of disobeying God which the god knew before hand. Then he banishes them from the Garden of Eden to barren desert.7

Matthew Taylor Coleman was charged with two counts of foreign first-degree murder of United States nationals, according to the indictment filed Wednesday, September 8, 2021. The charges make Coleman eligible for the death penalty, but the Attorney General will decide at a later date whether to do so.

Many of Trump’s cult followers saw the COVID pandemic as a demon from hell and vaccine one of Satan’s tricks to put serpent-DNA (made, allegedly, from aborted fetuses–that it is not) into christian evangelicals who were to prepare the land for the dictatorship of Trump and their Jesus. To counter the COVID vaccine put out by Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, was to turn to animal dewormers. One of the most grotesque beliefs that is costing lives and money is the looney tunes of  Trump faithful pushing Ivermectin8 as a cure for COVID. Ivermectin is a horse dewormer. Throughout the pandemic, the anti-parasite drug ivermectin has attracted much attention, particularly in Latin America,9 as a potential way to treat COVID-19. There were widespread flaws in the data of a preprint study reporting that the medication greatly reduces COVID-19 deaths dampens ivermectin’s promise — and highlights the challenges of investigating drug efficacy during a pandemic. The paper summarized the results of a clinical trial seeming to show that ivermectin can reduce COVID-19 death rates by more than 90%10 — among the largest studies of the drug’s ability to treat COVID-19 to date. But on 14 July, after internet sleuths raised11  concerns about plagiarism and data manipulation, the preprint server Research Square withdrew the paper because of “ethical concerns”. Early in the pandemic, scientists showed that ivermectin could inhibit the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in cells in laboratory studies.12 But data on ivermectin’s efficacy against COVID-19 in people are still scarce, and study conclusions conflict greatly, making the withdrawal of a major trial particularly noteworthy. More damning, most of the paper was plagiarized.8 It is rightly lampooned by the Lincoln Project.14 A county judge with no training in medicine and 

no education in science, Judge Gregory Howard ordered West Chester [Ohio] Hospital to give Jeffrey Smith, 51, the antiparasitic treatment commonly used for livestock15 at the request of his wife Julie Smith who knew it might kill her husband. On Monday, Judge Michael Oster of Butler county issued an order16 that sided with West Chester Hospital, citing a lack of “convincing evidence” that the drug – used in small doses in humans against external parasites such as headlice, and in larger doses for animals including cows and horses – could significantly improve the patient’s condition. According to Oster’s order,16 Wagshul, who does not have medical privileges at West Chester Hospital, prescribed 21 days of the medication without having seen Jeffrey Smith. At a hearing on Thursday, Julie Smith, his wife, testified that neither she nor her husband were vaccinated against Covid-19.

Do Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19 Horses and People are not same

Oster’s order nullified the order issued by Howard. “Judges are not doctors or nurses,” he wrote. “We have gavels, not needles, vaccines, or other medicines.”18 As reports of ivermectin use continue, the federal Food and Drug Administration warned against using animal-strength forms of the drug as a treatment for Covid-19. “Taking large doses of this drug is dangerous and can cause serious harm,” it said, adding that the drug can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, delirium and death.19

Increasing number of deaths after Ivermectin treatment on humans have been reported since 1997.20 Ivermectin is especially dangerous in the elderly having scabies.21 The animal dewormer is especially popular, and dangerous, in Houston, Texas where hundreds of patients are taking it in desperation listening to fake doctors.22 Oklahoma hospitals deluged by Ivermectin overdoses push by preachers and other predators. “There’s a reason you have to have a doctor to get a prescription for this stuff, because it can be dangerous,” Dr Jason McElyea,23 a family doctor in Sallisaw, told KFOR, an Oklahoma TV station.24 “The [emergency rooms] are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated.25 Even the manufacturer states there is no scientific basis or meaningful evidence Ivermectin is effective against COVID. However, many of the tractor supply stores say their shelves are empty.

Florida had rogue doctors prescribing Ivermectin, with one having the ear of Florida’s governor.

Florida, under the misadministration of Governor Ron DeathSantis, has even a graver problem with a spike in calls from Floridians foolishly taking livestock deworming drug Ivermectin.26 Tuesday, August 31, 2021, the Florida Poison Control Center said it treated 27 patients so far in August for ivermectin. The tragedy was compounded by DeSantis doctor advised DeSantis to promote Ivermectin to treat COVID-19 despite FDA approval since he has stock in the stock dewormer. “The promotion of inappropriate use of this drug is irresponsible, reckless, and dangerous,” Fried said. “There is no public health or scientific support for its use to treat or prevent COVID-19, and there are serious safety concerns when it comes to self-medicating and humans using medications intended for animals. Individuals should look to their medical doctors when it comes to medical treatments – not online quacks.” Severe dangers of ivermectin ingestion include neurologic disorders, seizures, coma and death.26 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention28 (CDC) cited a case of a man who drank an injectable form of ivermectin intended for cattle. He suffered hallucinations, confusion, tremors and other side effects and was hospitalized for nine days.

One of the most dangerous men in the USA and a foe of medical science is the infamous blowhard of Info Wars: Alex Jones. He has no education nor training in medicine, and is a radical science denier. He embraces QAnon and all the myths it spews. Alex Jones of Info Wars took Ivermectin on air and bragged his family is taking it, too–urging others to do the same.29 There is no accounting of how many people watched Jones theatrics, took his wrong advice, and suffered because if his misinformation.
