Don't Just Save the Trees, Convert Them


Florida's trees had a canker problem back in 2001. The obvious solution was to destroy the diseased trees. A not-so-obvious solution was to call a Kabbalah-practicing rabbi. The Orlando Sentinel reports:

Researchers worked with a rabbi and a cardiologist to test "Celestial Drops," promoted as a canker inhibitor because of its "improved fractal design," "infinite levels of order" and "high energy and low entropy."

But the cure proved useless against canker. That's because it was water -- possibly, mystically blessed water.

The Sentinel alleges that the push to spread the Kaballah creed in Florida's forests came from then-Secretary of State Katherine Harris, who was apparently in contact with celestial drop-pushing rabbi Abe Hardoon:

In August 2001, Harris herself jotted a note to Hardoon.

"I would love to see this work," it says.

Whole thing here.
