Παραθέτουμε τη γνωστή σε όλους βιογραφία - αγιογραφία (της γνωστής σειράς "Βίοι Αγίων" της wikipedia), ιδιαιτέρως όμως σε όσους, τυχόν, δεν έχουν αντιληφθεί ακόμα το τεραστίων διαστάσεων, πολιτικό, πολιτιστικό και κοινωνικό έργο του Προφήτη πλασιέ στο παρόν και το μέλλον αυτού του τόπου:
Liakopoulos DimosthenisDemosthenes Liakopoulos (Greek:Δημοσθένης Λιακόπουλος) is a controversial TV personality in Greece who can best be described as a national mysticist. Dimosthenis Liakopoulos has studied Physics in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and claims to have made extended studies -albeit, apparently, on a personal and not academial level- in Astrophysics, World and Greek history, the paternal texts of the Orthodox faith and the evolution of military technology throughout the centuries. He has worked for 20 years as a High School physics teacher. He claims to have worked for NATO for several years ; subsequently he quit and dedicated himself to TV-shows and book publishing. His first television show was "Dimosthenous Dialogoi" which included interviews of scientists, historians and politicians. His latest TV-show is called "Dynata kai Ellhnika" in which he promotes his personal beliefs about history, technology, and politics while advertising the books he publishes. These books are written either by himself or by some of his associates.See also: The Writers of LiakopoulosContents1 His claims2 Liakopoulos and Anti-Semitism3 Controversy4 Latest Developments5 Notes6 External links7 See alsoHis claimsHis unprecedented success is due to an eccentric mixture of what he claims to be apocryphal knowledge, history, and religious texts, which he regularly evangelizes in the books he authors as well as his TV infomercial, broadcast on various hours of the day by a multitude of small Greek TV stations.In his infomercials Liakopoulos promotes, at times aggressively, at times using rather naive arguments and at times with a substantial dose of humour, the sales of a series of books containing supposedly astounding revelations, which he claims to have been presented to him through father Iosif Vatopedinos and father Paisios of Mount Athos, as well as Saint John Trahonitis from Lemesos of Cyprus; he frequently invokes their authority to substantiate his claims, insisting that "the wise sage has said so!", Greek: "το είπε και ο σοφός ο γέροντας!", which has evolved into something of a catch phrase."O Kairos Gar Eggys" (The Time is Near) book coverThe books cover a multitude of conspiracy theories most of which have to do with the Apocalypse, "New World Order", "Global Zionism", "Extraterrestrials", "The Theory of the Hollow Earth" and other obscure topics. He combines elements from a multitude of conspiracy theories, blending them with pseudoreligious and pseudohistorical facts in order to present an explanation of world developments that is characteristic to conspiracy-themed publications. One example is his claim that according to religious texts of the Christian Church, Alexander the Great was instructed by the Christian God to seal the exits of the interior of the earth by building Pyramids. In this way the so called "putrid nations"—apparently something like the Morlocks in H. G. Wells' "The Time Machine"—have been trapped inside the hollow interior of the earth waiting for a chance to come out.Liakopoulos has stated that he doesn't always agree with all the theories mentioned in his infomercials, although it's not always clear which of them he promotes and which he only mentions ; this makes it much easier to distance himself from theories that appear in his shows and books, when they are proven to be obvious frauds.The most popular book he promotes is probably the two-volume series "O Kairos gar Eggys" ("Ο Καιρός Γαρ Εγγύς"—The Time is Due) which contains what Liakopoulos calls prophecies pertaining to the future of Greece and the world until the year 2024. In this book it is stated that Russian technology will be superior to the arms of NATO and will bring back Russia (referred in the prophetica texts as 'the Fair race') as a superpower during the upcoming World War III. Thence, the Byzantine Empire will become the most powerful nation in the world bringing a Golden Age with peace and justice to the entire planet.See alsoLiakopoulos and the RussiansPeople Liakopoulos speaks aboutPeople Liakopoulos speaks withLiakopoulos and Anti-SemitismLiakopoulos' commentary can be interpreted as anti-semitic, although he denies it. He believes that Jews like all other people desire to live in peace and harmony. However they are often being manipulated by what he calls the Dark side of Zionism. While he supports the "Bright Side of Zionism" which is the right of Jews to have a land of their own he believes that since ancient times the Dark side wishes to rule the entire world. To support this he offers some examples from the Holy Bible mixed with some of his own theories, the most known of which is the theory of "El and Nefelim".ControversyThe Centaur from Volos, a fictional exhibit  at the University of Tennessee Hodges Library, which Liakopoulos often displayed on his broadcasts as archaeological proof of Centaurs. The display is clearly entitled "Do you believe in Centaurs?" and was meant to mislead students in order to make them more critically aware, according to the exhibitors.Historical scholars universally reject Liakopoulos's claims as pseudohistorical, fraudulent, and devoid of merit.Liakopoulos has also been the target of severe criticism and mockery in popular culture, by numerous comedians (like George Mitsikostas) and also weblog authors, but continues to pursue the promotion of his publications. Despite the revisionist and controversial content of his books, it is assumed that they sell well, since Liakopoulos affords to pay for many hours of broadcasting on a number of TV-stations, most notably "Τηλεάστυ" (TeleAsty) (an ultra-nationalist TV station owned by politician Georgios Karatzaferis), "Extra-3" and "Seven". In his books, Liakopoulos blends racism and messianism—more specifically, a unique Greek mixture of the two called epsilonism, with orthodox christian piety, nationalism and anti-zionism (sometimes related to anti-semitism).Although Liakopoulos has a small number of followers, many people claim to watch his infomercials simply because they are entertained by his style and often outrageous remarks. Many wonder how can he claim to be a devout Christian orthodox and at the same time, conciliate his faith with 'heretical' themes, like aliens and hollow earth and consider him a hoaxer who knowingly promotes mythology as fact to become rich.Many of Liakopoulos's claims have been proven to be frauds which he knowingly disseminated. He had been displaying a photograph which he alleged to be the remains of an actual living Centaur for many months in his show. As skepdic.gr revealed (http://www.skepdic.gr/Entries/Kapa/centaur.htm), the so-called "fossil" was in fact a completely fictional work of art, put to display in Tenesee University under the humorous title "Do you believe in Centaurs?".The fact that Liakopoulos sells his books during prime tv time without a telemarketing sign, has resulted in the networks that carry his show "ΔΥΝΑΤΑ ΚΑΙ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΑ" ("Dynata Kai Ellinika") ("Loud and Greek") being penalized with heavy fines (up to €20,000) by the Greek National Council for Radio and Television (ESR) .Latest DevelopmentsIn June - July, 2006, mister Liakopoulos published a new, 5-tome work with the title "Gi, o planitis ton Ellinon" (Earth, Planet of the Greeks), in witch he claims that the Ancient Greeks had colonized almost every place in the world, from Far Asia to North America. This is considered (by himself) to be the greatest science work on his entire career as a writer.According to everyone else (except the faithfull ofcource), it is just another typical, pseudo-science work, only in greater scale this time.Notes↑ Greek National Council for Radio and Television decision (in Greek)External linksOfficial Website of Dimosthenis Liakopoulos (In Greek)The Greek Skeptic's Dictionary rebuttal of a hoax that Liakopoulos adopted to push the myth of Russian hyper-technologySatirical site of Liakopoulos' theoriesMore journalistic critisism for Mr. Liakopoulos theoriesSee alsoEpsilonismEpsilon TeamAnestis KeramidasKyriakos VelopoulosNikos KonstantinidisGeorgiades BrosEl and NefelimRetrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimosthenis_Liakopoulos"
