Strange Angel is CBS new television series covering the occult practices of Jack Parson, Aleister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, and their influence over Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA. This made for television docudrama was inspired by the best selling novel: “Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA.” This story reveals how this key person involved in the early days of NASA’s space program was a devout satanist.
Actually, most people in America look at NASA as a legitimate space agency. Few would even venture to speculate that NASA was founded under the inspiration of the unholy spirit! However, although there is much evidence that NASA was founded in deceit, (i.e. fake moon landing) the TV series only focuses on the life of devout satanist, Jack Parson.
It seems that the goal of the TV series is to reveal Parson a strange and eccentric genius, rather than man inspired by demonic spirits. The show seems to gloss over what a completely unlikable person Parson actually was, and how poorly he treated many of those around him. It seems that the show was edited just enough to leave out the unscientific methods of Parson’s discoveries, to make one believe that NASA’s predecessor was doing real science. Although most of Parson’s discoveries were dangerous, primitive, and unorthodox, Parson was still given funding by the U.S. to form the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Actually, Parson was such a bad engineer that Parsons was expelled from Aerojet by new majority shareholders who disapproved of his “unorthodox and unsafe working methods.” Some of his critics stated that, “he was good at making things go boom.”
This was a widely anticipated television premiere. However, most IMDb comments stated that it starts out disappointingly slow. This might be due to the network’s reluctance to just come right out with the truth. I mean, after all, they are dealing with the topic of NASA’s satanic roots. The truth is that Parson was a hedonist who was having group sex with his 17 year old sister in law, wife, and church of satan pastor.
This was during the 1940’s during a time when this sort of thing was unheard of. So raunchy were the sexual orgies at Parson’s house, that the FBI had to investigate. After finding that his satanic rituals and orgies were no threat to national security, the FBI gave him a green light on his activities.
One of Parson’s groups’ key innovations was developing Jet Assisted Take Off (JATO) engines for the US Air Corps. It was during this time, that Parsons developed solid rocket fuel that was stable enough to be stored indefinitely.
Parson was a member of the church of satan and thelema along with L. Ron Hubbard. Thelema is an occult philosophy/religion that embraces libertinism and teaches that people should have the freedom to do whatever they want. “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole book of the law,” was coined by Thelema’s founder, Aleister Crowley. Mr. Crowley prided himself to be the most wicked man alive. It was through the inspiration of Crowley and his church of satan associates, the Parson became a practicing witch.
In 1945, science fiction writer, who would later become founder of Scientology L Ron Hubbard, developed a romance with Parson’s sister in law, Sara. The two of them ran off together leaving Parson jealous and dejected. He was so dejected that he developed a deeper interest in witchcraft and the darker side of magic, eventually becoming fascinated by poltergeists and ghostly apparitions.
There was never really a point in his life where anything was “normal” as is portrayed in the television series. The real Jack Parson’s had major emotional problems and hatred for Western Civilization. He hated the morals of the 1940s, and lived a sad and short life – dying at the age of 37 years old. I know the shows creators were going for a slow set-up, but not much at all actually happens in the episodes, nor is there really a hint of who Parsons really was or what he would become. This might be because Hollywood is trying to cover up the real cost of sin. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
