UPDATE (March 2017) — Mr. Cyr has now republished his book, with a few changes, under the title “After The Warning To 2038”. The book still contains much material plagiarized from my work.
Bruce Cyr currently lives in Okotoks, Alberta, Canada. He is the author of a book titled: After the Warning 2016. His book contains a substantial amount of material, taken directly from my writings in eschatology, without any attribution. Bruce Cyr has plagiarized my writings about the future, especially my book: The Secrets of Medjugorje and Garabandal.
In reading through his book, to determine the extent of the plagiarism, I discovered some disturbing claims by Bruce Cyr: bizarre conspiracy theories about Freemasons, Illuminati, and Global Elites, as well as his claim that 9-11 was a “false flag” attack on the World Trade Center orchestrated by the Bush administration. Quotes from Cyr’s book follow, with proper attribution, and my comments.
“9-11: ‘Who Dun It?’
“How do we look at Sept 11, 2001 and the destruction of the Twin Towers and other buildings on that day? There is much evidence of a set-up. In fact, the towers could not have gone down, with one airplane and fuel that burned up in three seconds.” Cyr, Bruce (2014-12-29). After The Warning 2016 (Kindle Locations 4707-4710).
Bruce Cyr believes that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center did not collapse due to the collisions of the planes. He calls this event “a set-up”. Claims such as this have come to be known as the “9/11 Truth movement”. The Wikipedia page on that term says:
“Adherents of the 9/11 Truth movement are conspiracy theorists who dispute the mainstream account of the September 11 attacks of 2001. The ‘truthers’, as they are called, sometimes pejoratively, dispute the commonly accepted account that Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners, crashed them into the Pentagon and New York’s Twin Towers, whereupon the crashes led to the collapse of the Twin Towers.” [Wikipedia ]
Cyr’s explanation of the 9/11 attacks is one version of this conspiracy theory. Cyr’s version, though, is particularly strange:
“It was visible to those who understand thermite and nano-thermite being used to blow the towers, thus creating extreme heat that creates distinct pyroclastic flows or clouds that occur in volcanic eruptions, also seen at space shuttle launches where great heat and energy is exhausted.” Cyr, Bruce (2014-12-29). After The Warning 2016 (Kindle Locations 4715-4717).
Bruce Cyr believes that the WTC Twin Towers fell because explosives were planted, in advance, by the U.S. government (specifically the Bush administration). He calls this a “false flag” attack, meaning that the U.S. government deliberately attacked the U.S. to have an excuse to go to war against the Middle East. To this discredited and foolish conspiracy theory, Cyr adds the absurd claim that the 747s that struck the Twin Towers were “flown by remote control”. Yet he maintains that the towers only fell because of pre-planted “nano-thermite” explosive charges.
“This complex was imploded intentionally, in order to create another ‘Pearl Harbor’.” Cyr, Bruce (2014-12-29). After The Warning 2016 (Kindle Location 4723).
His book repeatedly references Pearl Harbor, in association with his conspiracy theories about false flag attacks. In this way, he implies another conspiracy theory, that the U.S. knew about the planned attacks on Pearl Harbor, and did nothing to prevent the attacks, so as to have an excuse to go to war. See the Wikipedia page on this conspiracy theory. Who was behind the alleged 9-11 false flag conspiracy? Cyr explains:
“This group included high-ranking members of President George Bush’s staff that were also on Bush Senior’s Staff. This was an example of a false flag operation, to make it look like the enemy infiltrated a country to do harm. That country would then have visible legitimate evidence for retaliation. It could then go to war against that country or countries for their intended purposes. In this case, it gave the United States of America, a pretense to go to war to secure more oil for America and the ‘war machine,’ which are running out. This would line the pockets of Elitists in the United States and global oil companies spurring on many other international initiatives around the world.” Cyr, Bruce (2014-12-29). After The Warning 2016 (Kindle Locations 4729-4734).
In many places throughout his book, Cyr extends this idea of a false flag conspiracy to future events. He claims that a set of “Global Elites” (aka “Globalists”, or “Elitists”) are planning future false flag attacks, like 9-11, to manipulate the U.S. and other nations into war. Cyr’s book warns the reader about this imagined secret society of evil Globalists:
“This is an example of the changes that will continue to unfold by the powerful Global Elite and their disregard for humanity unless there is intervention.” Cyr, Bruce (2014-12-29). After The Warning 2016 (Kindle Locations 4745-4746).
Bruce Cyr’s presentation of Catholic eschatology is a mix of quotes from legitimate Catholic sources and material plagiarized from my writings, injected with a large dose of bizarre conspiracy theories. Not only does he think Pearl Harbor and 9-11 were both conspiracies, but his entire view of the End Times is perverted by similar conspiracy theories. I should also point out that, after taking much material from my work without attribution, he distorts some of my points, omits some points, and adds his own foolish claims and interpretations.
I have been studying and writing Roman Catholic eschatology for many years. My first book on the subject was published in 1998 (The Bible and the Future). I have written many books and booklets on eschatology. I have also studied and written books in other areas of theology: salvation theology, moral theology, Mariology, Biblical chronology etc. My translation of the Bible and my edit of the Latin Vulgate is available online here: SacredBible.org.
Sound Roman Catholic eschatology does not include conspiracy theories of any kind. None of the writings of Saints, Blesseds, Popes, theologians, and mystics of the Church about the End Times confirms or supports this type of conspiracy theory about a secret society trying to control the planet. When the Blessed Virgin Mary speaks (rarely) about the dangers of “freemasons”, she is using a figure of speech to warn about those persons who would chip away at the stones of the foundation of the Church: Her teachings. The danger is not from some secret society, but from our fellow Catholics who proudly think that their own ideas should replace Church teaching. The danger is that sinful secular society will excessively influence the faithful, so that they will wish to alter or replace Church teachings with grave errors and foolish ideas.
Subtract from Bruce Cyr’s book, After the Warning 2016, all the quotes from Catholic sources and all the material he plagiarized from my many years of labor, and what you have left is a set of misinterpretations, foolish assumptions, baseless claims, and bizarre conspiracy theories. Bruce Cyr is not a Roman Catholic theologian, and his book is not an example of sound Roman Catholic eschatology.
Worse still, Cyr claims to have received private revelations from Heaven, supposedly confirming his bizarre conspiracy theories. Since this type of idea is incompatible with faith and reason, with Church teaching and sound eschatology, with the writings of Saints and mystics on the End Times, and with Sacred Scripture on the same subject, his claimed private revelations cannot possibly be from God. Do not be led astray.
