Before adding a request please:

Also, when adding a request, please include as much information as possible (such as webpages, articles, or other reference material) so editors can find and distinguish your request from an already-created article.

Remember to add your requested biographical article to Wikipedia:Requested articles/Biography/By profession too.

If the country of nationality to which your requested biography applies doesn't exist (anymore), create an appropriate subsection below, or ask an experienced Wikipedia user for help and advice, e.g. on formerly, historical nationalities, multiple nationality owning and stateless persons. Remember a request is just a temporary, embryonic stage of an article. It is the content of the article itself that makes the difference. Appropriate categorization will eventually sort the biographical article on the subject of applying nationality, ethnicity etc.

United States[edit]






Maxwell is seen as a big name in the world of 'conspiracy theorists' and served as an example for various authors and researchers in the field, including Michael Tsarion and David Icke .

Maxwell was editor at Truth Seeker Magazine for three years, made documentaries for CBS TV Network and presented his own radio show under the ABC banner .

Maxwell was born and raised in Florida where he and his grandfather went crab fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. He noticed similarities between humans and crabs when, climbing on and pulling each other down, they refused to cooperate and so none ever escaped the bucket. One of Maxwell's hobbies , alongside symbolism and word interpretation, is the so-called 'astro-theology' (not invented by him); a theory that states that religions are based on astronomical events.

Thus the story of Jesus (birth, crucifixion, resurrection, 12 apostles), like many other beliefs in the world, would be based on the faith of the sun god Horus . Remarkably, all these beliefs show, sometimes at least, similarities to the cult of Horus. Jordan Maxwell has been the preeminent researcher in studies of the Occult and religious philosophy for over 50 years, at the great expense of his personal life. Jordan says he never had a choice and was compelled to pursue his lifetime’s work.

Jordan’s motive was never monetary profit or gain, but rather a relentless pursuit of truth, which made him easy prey for a multitude of conniving, ruthless opportunists looking to make a quick buck off a lifetime’s worth of work and sacrifice. Being a preeminent researcher and independent scholar did not leave time to pursue being the consummate businessman, and particular self-serving characters took advantage of this as an opportunity to exploit.

Over the years, Jordan had a string of peculiar personalities come into his life, ostensibly offering help, only to find out later their true intent — take for themselves everything Jordan was trying to do. This caused Jordan severe economic harm, and made it very difficult for Jordan to obtain the necessities required to sustain life, let alone pay legal fees to defend his rights, but Jordan battled on for his name, image, and life’s work, and now he continues with his research and work.)(,,
