Are My Books Being Discredited Because I’m Actually Onto Something Important?

Especially in Europe, my books are mocked mercilessly for the last week. 

It might be a response to my portrayal of certain European “leaders” as traitors…

It could be because End Times and 2019 generates more attention at the start of… 2019.

Or just because my speculations are sometimes wrong

You could look at my very first book title: Nostradamus, World War III, 2002 – and dismiss it by saying WWIII didn’t happen in 2002.  But my argument in that book (written in the late 1990s) was that Nostradamus said there would be a 27 year period of increasing conflict between Islam and the West, starting no later than early 2002… And you could say there has been never-ending war across the continents since 9/11/2001…

But bearing in mind that I’m not particularly famous or important and that writing books on the possible end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it isn’t my day job… it also makes me wonder why I am suddenly being written up (and discredited) in hundreds of publications around the world in the last week.

* Even this blog post was only up for a few minutes, and had perhaps 3 views at best – before another tabloid mockery type article appeared about the post you are reading right now! – https://ascienceenthusiast.com/totally-serious-prophecy-says-the-apocalypse-will-occur-in-2019-for-real-this-time-guys/  As if my ideas aren’t questionable enough on their own… this one even added “Sharknadoes” to my list of claims!

I commented: “Thank you Dan! Within minutes of my writing a blog post about how my books are being misrepresented and made fun of without anyone paying attention to most of what I actually say, you helped prove my point with almost instantaneous mockery, and even sharknadoes! As one reader commented on the same blog post: “Readers of your books will have the discretion to see the difference between authentic sifting through of ideas versus inane prophecy declarations.” I don’t mind if millions of people laugh it all off, knowing a select few will be motivated to continue their search for evidence, and a better understanding of geology, mythology, religion and other relevant topics.”


If I were the tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist type – I would start wondering if I’m really onto something important with my newest POLE SHIFT book, and if there’s a smear campaign to discredit me.  Probably not…  But the huge surge in (negative) publicity for my writing does get my attention.

The mockery started with British tabloids and spread globally…  It stings a little to do years of research and write books from as scientific a perspective as possible and still be called:

“Prolific doomsday prophet David Montaigne”

David Montaigne, a popular Christian conspiracy theorist”

crackpot author David Montaigne”

I love how one article in Britain’s The Sun wraps up their commentary on me:

“Author Ronald Weinland claims the apocalypse will come on June 9, 2019, based on his readings of Mayan texts.  Weinland previously made failed predictions of Armageddon in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

What do you think of Montaigne’s bizarre theories? Let us know in the comments!”

Nice touch, throwing in someone else’s failed predictions as if relevant to mine.  (They also say “He claims Earth’s poles will flip on December 21, causing its magnetic south to re-locate to the North Pole, and the magnetic north to shift to Antarctica.”

I actually give evidence for pole shifts of approximately 30 degrees, like the last one that


moved the North Pole from the west of Hudson Bay – the middle of North America’s Ice Cap – to its current position.  It doesn’t make much sense for an “ice age” in North America while Siberia was warm and full of herds of big animals – unless the North Pole wasn’t where it is today…  But I guess they didn’t bother to read my POLE SHIFT book either.

Maybe someone could lump me in with even more irrelevant and preposterous comments from someone else to further discredit me.  Oh look, another recent article already thought of that: “Montaigne isn’t the first person whose come out with some ‘interesting’ ideas for 2019.  Going by the name Noah, one ‘time traveler’ claims that he’s been along to the year 2030 and has come back with some big news for the coming years.”  Nice touch, lump me in with someone who claims to time travel…

This article by METRO is more interested in my take on Nostradamus’ prophecies of WWIII. – but they still found time to misrepresent my pole shift thoughts and claim that I suggest “Earth’s poles could be about to flip, due to a series of signs in the sky last month.”  That makes no sense at all… though there are many other scientific reasons to think that a pole shift is coming, and many articles from scientific sources say the same thing…

I commented on one article:

“Thanks for the irreverent dismissal of some of my comments, Dominic! I can’t see the future – and I’ll be happy to be wrong on this, because I hope nothing happens this year – but I find it fascinating that we can use forensic astronomy to analyze the descriptions of the skies given in ancient prophetic visions and – just possibly – calculate when future skies will match the ancient details. Even Sir Isaac Newton had 4500 pages of notes attempting to do this – and he focused on the 21st century (though his alleged focus on the year 2060 was misrepresented in the press.) But sure, lump me in with a guy who claims he’s a time traveler from the future instead.”

This video seems pretty accurate compared to the mistreatment I received in the articles.


But I prefer to let my books speak for themselves – in case you’re interested in more than me getting roasted in the press.

  1. Bearing in mind,when it comes to mainstream media we seem to be in an age of bad faith ,misnomic post truth i;e fake news i wouldn’t take it to heart.{maybe more of a unintended backward compliment}
    Readers of your books will have the discretion to see the difference between authentic sifting through of ideas versus inane prophecy declarations.

    • You are being ridiculed because you are batshit crazy! Your claims are pseudoscientific garbage at best.

      • I suspect that even if the main story of an ancient book is implausible, there is often a subtext between the lines with a message. In many stories the information is clearly astronomical, as described in Hamlet’s Mill.

  2. If they’re spelling your name correctly, then they are effectively giving you the publicity you appear to have been wondering how to cultivate.

    Only 0.1% of the population are going to have any ability to countenance the feasibility of pole shift (let alone a 12,000 year cataclysm cycle), so that makes reaching your audience incredibly difficult in the first place. However, it’s probable that that audience will also have an eye out for MSM ridiculing of crack-pots (smoke without fire, etc), and so some of them will check out where you appear in the Von Daniken/Ike/Velikovsky/Hancock spectrum – and so a few more will find you.

    However much it may appear to the contrary, ‘they’ do want the percipient to know, and you will help them get there…

    Prophecy will of course be ridiculed as the paranormal ability to predict the future, and this will probably be the linchpin of the case against you – even though, it is quite likely that long term directions (in knowledge of forthcoming cataclysm) would be disseminated quasi-steganographically in the form of prediction/prophecy.

    You cannot reach the mainstream audience. No-one can. The red pill is for a tiny few. So, there is no audience of yours there that would be lost by becoming labelled as an always-wrong prophecy-monger who believes the world is going to turn upside down “next year”.

  3. 2019 won’t be the end. The end will be when Jesus comes back and judges the nations. I believe it will happen within a few decades, no later than 2050.

  4. First they ignore you,

    then they laugh at you,

    then they fight you,

    then you win.

  5. Keep up the good work. Don’t pay them no mind. They just validate the idea of how truth is being withheld and silenced anyway they can. It’s one of THEIR Articles that led me to your blog and now I’m looking into your books. The truth will always outshine deception.

  6. So what happens January 1st 2020?

    • Time isnt only Gregorian based.

    • I hope I’m not making anyone think I feel the evidence proves 100% that anything must happen at a certain time. I have written about multiple clues that I interpret to point to December 2019 and I explain why in many of my articles and books. But I also realize that I worked to find a pattern and make sense of those clues. Maybe I’m right – the facts make me take that timing seriously and I have hoped others would assess my thinking. (One other researcher contacted me to let me know they independently came up with the same exact date for Judgment Day.) But that doesn’t prove anything. Facts can be true while a conclusion based on them is wrong.

      There is always the chance that, like staring at an ink blot test until you recognize something in it – maybe I drew a conclusion from clues that will prove to be mere coincidences. The way the astronomical clues and biblical clues seem to correspond amaze me – especially how the sun, moon, and planets move in a way that symbolically acts out every major step of an ancient, week-long Jewish wedding ceremony in the sky during Hanukkah this year. The groom (the sun) giving the bride (Earth) a ring takes 8 minutes in the Jewish wedding ceremony, and almost 8 minutes for a total eclipse’s “diamond ring effect” as we see the corona around the edge of the moon. That also fulfills Isaiah 13:10, which says the sun will be dark as it rises – because this total solar eclipse will be visible from Jerusalem at sunrise on December 26. Hopefully this – and everything else I wrote about – proves to be meaningless coincidence. Hopefully 2019 ends uneventfully, with nothing more exciting on January 1, 2020 than me humbly deciding that my days of trying to interpret end times Bible prophecy have ended. Time will tell soon enough.

  7. I guess if I’m truly onto something, not only would time eventually prove it – but I would also continue to suffer a campaign to discredit my ideas – out of all proportion to my importance (I’m not famous.) An army friend recently said: “You don’t take a lot of flak unless you’re over the target.”

POLE SHIFT: Evidence Will Not Be Silenced

Evidence suggests that pole shifts are both magnetic and geophysical, with a periodic cycle of recurring and predictable cataclysms involving huge earthquakes and tsunamis, changes in latitude and altitude, mass extinctions, and the destruction of civilizations, reducing them to myth and legend.
