DATELINE: Shatner Returns to Treasure Hunt
Cold Day in November!
We know how much everyone enjoyed William Shatner on Oak Island, but he must have also enjoyed it because he has come back for the final night of season 7.
His theory is worthy of the UnXplained,and we fully concur with him.
There is a fairly sharp start that indicates that Shakespeare may have been borderline literate: his father and mother were illiterate and only middle-class. His own education was fair, not royal and not comprehensive.
So, Shatner takes some relish in debunking the Bard and suggesting the real writer was a man with credentials, like Sir Francis Bacon, member of the Elizabethan court. There may even be several authors, as Shatner hints.
Cyphers in the original folio have intrigued researchers that there is something that matches Nolan’s Cross on Oak Island. In fact, Bacon was connected to Knights Templar through Rosiecrucians—and he may have known of the secret vaults on Oak Island—and chose to bury his Shakespeare originals there.
One can find that The Tempest may be confessional in terms of Bacon burying “my booke.” If overlaid on the final page of The Tempest, you find a spot that would correspond to the Eye of the Swamp on the Island.
We were amused when Rick Lagina called Bacon the Michelangelo of his day: if history is correct, they were almost contemporaries as Michelangelo’s death crossed the date of Bacon’s birth. Technically, he was right.
Parchment was found over 160 feet below the earth. Bookbinding material was found near the Money Pit deep down.
Even the Laginas seemed intrigued that Shakespeare’s first folio is there.
