Accentuate the negative

I just found out why I (1) love astronomy, (2) have a fascination for UFOs, and (3) like Star Trek: The Next Generation:  My mother had Rh negative blood.

At least, that's the claim of an online book called The Rh Negative Factor, by Roberta Hill.  (You can read it in its entirety here.)

Hill's conjecture, which she claims to analyze in an "unbias" [sic] way, is that people with Rh negative blood have some pretty odd characteristics.  These include:

1. predominance of green or hazel eyes that change color like a chameleon, but also blue eyes.
2. true red or reddish hair
3. low pulse rate
4. low blood pressure and/or high blood pressure
5. keen sight or hearing
6. ESP
7. extra rib or vertebrae
8. UFO connections
9. love of space and science
10. a sense of not belonging to the human race
11. piercing eyes
12. para-normal occurrences
13. physic [sic] dreams
14. truth seekers
15. desire for higher wisdom
16. empathetic illnesses
17. deep compassion for fate of mankind
18. a sense of a 'mission' in life
19. physic [sic again] abilities
20. unexplained scars on body
21. capability to disrupt electrical appliances
22. alien contacts

Well.  My mom certainly was Rh negative; so are a good many people who have ancestry in southwestern France and northeastern Spain (and thus are likely to have Basque ancestry, amongst whom the allele for Rh negative blood is 65-70%).  It is responsible for Rh incompatibility syndrome, which killed my older sister and would have killed me but for the wonders of modern medicine and the RhoGAM shot, which suppresses an Rh negative mother's immune reaction against her Rh positive fetus.  My understanding was that the gene responsible for the condition was the result of a mutation that occurred amongst the ancestors of the Basques, probably something like 15,000 years ago.  But other than that, Rh negative doesn't seem to do much; people with two copies of the allele (like my mom) just don't have the Rh antigenic protein, and I thought that was pretty much that.

Little I know.

It turns out that besides all of the abilities and characteristics listed above, being Rh negative means that we are  descended from some combination of: (1) the Merovingian kings; (2) fallen angels; (3) the Nephilim; (4) aliens; or (5) Jesus.

According to Hill, there's all sorts of evidence for this.  For example, let's look at my favorite paragraph from her book:
I can only offer theories as to how this gene deletion could benefit mankind. Perhaps this particular protein that the RHD gene encodes for is a problem somehow and prevents people from receiving hyperdimensional information from the spiritual realm, and that could be why people are saying that RH negatives (& RH negative recessive people +/-) are more psychic. The RHD gene could have been a mutation or could have been put there by the fallen angels (aliens) to control us and keep us from accessing information from God and the spiritual realm. As we know, Jesus proclaimed that he was the new temple, and his body was acting like the Ark of the Covenant and therefore his Pineal gland was acting as a receiver and transmitter of hyperdimensional communication. It has been proven that the Pineal gland has tiny microcrystals that could act much like a radio receiver, or just like a crystal radio. Jesus Christ bloodline could represent a race of people that can act as messengers for God or as beacons of the light, therefore a new race of shepherds to guide souls back to Eden. Perhaps this bloodline could be Magdalene towers of the flock, and thus they emit a higher frequency which actually helps to raise all energy forms into a higher dimension. This would work with the scientific principle of resonance, as towers set the higher frequency tone for the rest of the people, then everyone would start to resonate with higher frequencies. Eventually as more people with the RH negative blood type are born, then they could help to raise the frequencies. This would create the effect of a net that people would start getting caught up within for the harvest or the ascension of the human race. That would explain the mysterious fish story in John 21, because we would be the net that the apostles, under Jesus direction, throw into the cosmic sea to catch fish. That would also explain the Basque marker of R-M153, which is the number of fish that they caught in the story. The number 153 actually is representative of the net, rather than how many fish/people will be caught for the harvest of the souls.
Oh.  Okay.  I mean, my only question would be, "What?"  After reading this (and this is, unfortunately, only one of many passages in this book that left my eyes spinning), I found myself wondering whether she can possibly be serious.  "Catching fish in the cosmic sea?"  "Crystals in Jesus' pineal gland resonating to higher frequencies and allowing hyperdimensional communication?"  The whole thing makes me want to take Ockham's Razor and slit my wrists with it.

I always find it simultaneously maddening and amusing when people with (apparently) a slim understanding of science try to use scientific information to explain their favorite slice of the woo-woo pie.  (Fritjof Capra's The Tao of Physics is a good example, although I have to admit in Capra's defense that his understanding of quantum physics seems to be a good bit better than Hill's understanding of biology; I disagree with his conclusions, however, which are that quantum physics shows that the Zen Buddhists are right.)  Here, we have someone who has bought into the whole weird quasi-biblical Nephilim/aliens thing, and has latched onto a piece of biological research, and used it to support her conjecture that she's a descendent of superpowerful angelic beings.  (Because of course Hill herself is Rh negative; did I even need to tell you that?)

Anyhow, that's today's journey into the deep end of the pool.  I really recommend that you read Hill's book -- it's available free, online, at the site I linked above.  For the record, it reads much better after a liberal consumption of whatever your favorite libation is.  I found that after three pints of beer, it actually was beginning to make sense, which is one of the strongest arguments against consuming alcohol that I can think of.


  1. As I have an RH negative mother and presumably carry the recessive trait as well it's nice to know that I have met another person besides myself and my sister who carry the torch. Mom does have red hair and her mother was English and from Yorkshire and her father was from South Alabama so go figure about the Basque connection - doesn't add up for us. I had a blood transfusion from my father I believe when I was born and Mom may have also had the same shot your mother was given. There is strong bastardization of natural philosophy when it comes to children and childbirth. I am a massage therapist by trade working on an undergraduate degree in interdisciplinary studies so it's not the first time I have run across the idea of some kind of 'essentialism' as being responsible for everything from a child's sex to the child's sexual orientation.

  2. Hi, Skep, this can be easily verified. Surely one of the 35 churches that have a piece of Jesus` foreskin would donate a snip(cough)to determine the blood group. While they`re at it, they could induce the Second Third? Coming by cloning

  3. I am Rh negative. I truly feel that I dont belong in this world. I can also read people well and can tell them things about themselves that have them wondering how I even know that. Honestly.. I have no clue. It just comes to me.

  4. Kasandra....I too have never ever felt like i belong in this world. i have from a very young age,stargazed more than not....even to the point of taking the screen out of my window when i was supposed to be fast asleep in the wee hours of the morning to stare at the sky. I am RH 0 negative. I have extra vertebrae..2 i believe. I am ultra Empath....yes many psychic abilities all my life... from nightly astra flight journey above the tree topa to other countries and now i believe, in retrospect, perhaps even other dimensions....i have green eyes and have been told all my life they are striking...have akways knowb when things were going to happen and what...almost died at age 12 and left my body and floated up at the calling watching the nurses work on me...lucid dreaming is commonplace for me..i am an active participant in my dreams nightly and have always since young had bizarre dreams many times feeling that i even visit other dimensions! Yeah sound nuts i know. I am compelled to help everyon E....since young...and am drama to healing....i have 19 of the traits given her for RH negative people. I have always felt different...and long ago it was devastating..but i made it thru those years and now i help as many people and animals daily as i can. Drawn to nature and animals in a huge way....i need both in my life daily. I also have gitten many weird disease that no one else in my family has...but am dealing with all and still awaken feeling extrememly grateful and full of love to share. I needed to share this with you..and anyone else who reads this like us...and also want to and to please forgive my typos!!! Lol

  5. My name is Beth I am a read head, have a green eye and a blue eye, and I'm Rh negative. I have somehow known things from the past starting at a young age, I have always been interested in history and the cosmos and often have dreams of flying in mid air over places I have live. I know what people are gonna say before they say it, and I have dreams that do come to pass....
