The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: A Half-Shell HOAX?

Leonardo. Michaelangelo. Donatello. Raphael.

Four cartoon heroes named after four fictional characters of ‘Renaissance’ history.

That’s right. The great artists of the ‘Renaissance’ are a HOAX because the ‘Renaissance’ is a HOAX because history is a HOAX.

Nobody died, nobody got hurt, period. That’s a fact.

Okay, it is more my honest suspicion than a ‘fact’.

After all, what is a ‘fact’ in the first place? What can be said to be ‘known’?

Well, this isn’t the time or place for epistemological musings.

What matters is that this website, johnlebon.com, will be the first and only platform in the known world to investigate the legitimacy (or otherwise) of the stories of the four artists whose names were used for the chief protagonists of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci. 1452 – 1519.

Michaelangelo do Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni. 1475 – 1564.

Donato di Niccolo di Betto Bardi. 1386 – 1466.

Raphael Sanzio da Urbino. 1483 – 1520.

In the comment section of daibpdaibp’s brilliant piece about the ‘Alfred the Great’ Hoax, Brandon Berry joked about the historical legitimacy of the four individuals listed above. I was amused at first, and then I realised that this could make for an entertaining group project.

What if four of us each volunteered to investigate one of the four characters in question?

Brandon Berry was quick to accept the challenge and will taking a closer look at Leonardo.

Daibpdaibp then stepped up to the plate and will be inspecting the stories of Donatello.

Take No Gnosis was not to be left out of the party; he’ll be reporting back with his findings on Raphael.

That leaves Michaelangelo do Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (or Micky de Buon, as he liked to be called).

If no other Members of this site would like to enlist for this particular project, I’ll be more than happy to apply my Primary Source Research Method to the official story of Micky de Buon.

Alternatively, if anybody out there would like to take care of MDB, I’ll instead turn my attention to the broader story of ‘ninjas’, something I have long suspected of being nothing more than mythology (recently-fabricated mythology, no less).

The beauty of having several different people investigate the historical characters in question is that it will demonstrate the objectivity of the primary source approach.

This isn’t just myself or TNG or Al or DD or any other single individual noticing that the primary sources don’t exist.

This isn’t some quirk of us as individuals, or some kind of ‘blind spot’ which we all must be suffering from on a micro level.

It isn’t a matter of failing to find the primary sources because we aren’t ‘looking hard enough’, or ‘not looking in the right places’.

The primary sources can’t be found, because they don’t exist, because history is a HOAX.


NOTE: It is still, in my opinion, theoretically possible that history is ‘real’. Who knows?

Perhaps one of the four Renaissance characters about to be investigated may have a credible backstory, replete with primary sources of traceable provenance.

I don’t wish or intend to guide the outcome of the investigations, and if any of the Members partaking in this project find evidence to support the ‘history is real’ conclusion, I might just about be the happiest person on the planet to hear and read about it.

I’ll publish whatever the Members find, and am sure that the readers here will be pleased to inspect the research for themselves, wherever it may lead.


We are dealing — IMO — with a truly grand and spectacular HOAX, one which entails consequences and corollaries which few (if any) of us could have imagined we might be facing, when we first set foot in the ACT realm.

Forget Sandy Hook and the other Baby Hoaxes. Forget Osama bin Laden and the Moon Landings and the other Toddler Hoaxes. Forget even the Dinohoax and the Heliocentrism Hoax and the other Teeny Hoaxes.

As interesting and important and foundational as they all may be, they don’t come close to the History Hoax, in terms of what this tells us about ‘where’ and when we live.

‘Reality’ is not what we have been led to believe. Human civilisation is not what we have been led to believe. Humanity itself is not what we have been led to believe.

And as outrageous as it sounds, we are going to take another leap forward in demonstrating this to be the case, here at johnlebon.com, by inspecting…

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Das rite.

Could be a cool front cover for a book…

There is no set completion date for consitutent elements of Project Ninja Turtle.

Each contributor will take as much time as they need to sift through the sources and write up their reports.

Anybody who has taken a trip to Tucson will know how tedious, time-consuming and tiring the process can be. These things can’t be rushed.

To BB, DD and TNG, thank you very much for volunteering to take the drive with me out to Tucson. I promise not to play my 90s mixtape the whole way there.

Will we be joined by any other brave souls on this fateful journey? Only time will tell.

When it is all said and done, I predict that BB’s original joke may have acted as the genesis of something very special…

In the meantime, here’s a couple of ‘coincidences’ which some of you might find interesting.

    Muliti Purpose Logistics Module

    Have a look at the Italian Space Agency’s contribution to the ISS. Note the names of the modules in the first paragraph.

    Have a look at the logo halfway down the page!!

    Does reflection on the astronaut’s helmet get anyone’s sync senses tingling?

      My god DD, fun “facts”! I really got a kick out of that article. These Italians are true OG master level hoaxers. The program logo is a freaking Ninja Turtle! So legit. I have half a mind to purchase one on EBay to sew onto my denim jacket.

      ST, I think your brain would be a great addition to this apocalypse, and it would allow JLB to add another element by looking in depth at the history of Ninjas themselves, which I for one was probably still carrying dormantly as an untested belief. I noticed you dabbled a bit into primary sources in your Bangers article, which was a nice little surprise. Kudos to you.

    Riveting stuff! I for one can’t help but click a thumbnail like that. Looking forward to reading the completed works to see how others approach the subject and what they come up with. I have only taken time to look more deeply into Leo, so it will be interesting to see if my hunch about the others is accurate.

    I listened to the Tip of the Hoaxberge and read through the comments, and enjoyed the lyrical reference left in them, which I’d never heard before. So, I thought I’d leave one here, although mine is certainly not to be taken too seriously, just an enjoyable song that seems to strike a similar chord:

    “I started a joke which started the whole world crying

    But I didn’t see that the joke was on me oh no

    I started to cry which started the whole world laughing

    Oh If I’d only seen that the joke was on me”

    I highly prefer the 2001 Wallflowers version of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zK-DpbBxIes

    The history hoax in a nutshell:

    The figures in history you thought were ‘important’ such as The Beatles, Mozart, Shakespeare (both said to be freemasons but who has proof for that, never mind that they were actually the people they are claimed to be?), Da Vinci, Michelangelo, etc., were phony characters fronting for other ‘geniuses’ or people who achieved what can be called an ‘heart-ist-ic’ level of excellence in their symbolically FRAMED specialized field of expression within a wider symbolically FRAMED narrative of expressed events called ‘history.’ Those who don’t learn from fake history are doomed to repeat it endlessly and those who DO learn from fake history are doomed to repeat ‘moral corrections’ to hoaxed events without a clear signature on them.

    However, what does the fact that someone or a team of someones joined together to create a virtual reality or path of ‘excellence’ for others to strive for indicate? Does it indicate that talent, as we know it, excellence, as we know it, creativity as we know it, are phony and unnecessary aspirations as well?

    No, because if creativity itself was a hoax then human birth itself would be a hoax, since it is the original creative act. Women are usually not as motivated to be as externally creative as men because as Jim Morrison used to say, they have physical creation or the ability to give birth within them.

    What it indicates is that even the higher creative fields are fully controlled for an agenda and creativity itself outside a given accepted ‘moral’ paradigm does not exist because conceptual and linguistic prison walls are erected there. The walls of these linguistic prisons are not dictated by ‘reality,’ since no one can possibly know what reality is outside of a conceptual and logical framework pre-digested by them to go further forward, but is dictated by those who have imposed their own views on the so-called ‘real’ reality. There are no concepts for dealing for what’s outside that paradigm. ‘Truth seeking’ is nothing more than finding those hidden realities and re-conceptualizing them.

    So the real questions are:

    Is struggle even necessary to achieve what is called excellence or is it all completely as unnecessary as a dog or cat learning to hunt by instinct?

    Does creativity exist? Is c-lever-ness or conceptual sophistication even necessary?

    Why is so much being hidden if not for the hiding making actions easier for the predator and harder for the prey?

    If predator and prey are a hoax as well, then how do you explain the human diet, which, like that of other living things, has to have death before it can have life. Even vegans have to have much death before they can go to the toilet ten times a day with diarrhea and virtue signals.

    Negentropic your postulation that…………

    Da Vinci, Michelangelo, etc., were phony characters fronting for other ‘geniuses’ or people who achieved what can be called an ‘heart-ist-ic’ level of excellence in their symbolically FRAMED specialized field

    I think this is possibly half way to the truth. It appears that not only the high level of creativity but the shear quantity of artistic pieces by said renaissance artists were created by teams of collaborators (admitted in Raphael’s case) and working together their collective talent transformed the character Raphael and the rest of the turtles into icons. The conundrum is when? When did these pieces of art appear into existence, certainly not the 13th and 14th centuries.

    Why is so much being hidden if not for the hiding making actions easier for the predator and harder for the prey?

    This my friend is not the case, nothing is hidden, all is out there.
    The truth is nobody up to recently has checked what they were taught about our history or even been bothered to look…………….to the detriment of the human race

      TNG would it be accurate to say that prior to the Internet, the act of fact checking would have been close to impossible for almost everyone, bar the odd person with a boat load of cash and time to physically go and do the research?

      I’m sure the majority the research done by you guys, is done on the Internet and occasionally the hard copies are sourced.

      If this is so, is the ability to confirm a hoax, a very recent thing. If so, do you think it’s part of the plan???

    AP, You are of course correct, prior to around the turn of the Millenium it was indeed impossible to check all the things we are able to now, only the likes of Crowley with the resources had the ability to learn on a par with this generation and even then the time involved traveling would have been a disadvantage. The reason for this is now so obvious, “911” was indeed the start point, the ritual that initiated the great revealing. Since then momentum has been building and building, with each passing week.

    Our society has been lobotomised over the last 100 years and yet here we are……

    Is the ability to confirm a hoax, a very recent thing?

    No my friend people have been busting Hoaxes for a long time, but TBH I don’t believe half the bullshit that is fed to us now would have made it past an average Joe in the 1800’s. In truth prior to the downgrading of the education system generations now ash were much smarter on average compared to the normies of today. It is clear to see in the writings and works from the early 1900’s backwards.

    If so, do you think it’s part of the plan???

    Who’s plan? Who owns the Earth?
    Officially that would be Queen Elizabeth II as she owns a sixth of the known land mass making her the wealthiest company/corporation in existence, why would she want to give that up by fueling a possible rebellion to her feudal system?

    The technology we now have aids us all in the hunt and it is a gift but also a double edged sword.
    The technology is the key is it not? Where does it originate, it is no coincidence that the microchip was introduced, it is no coincidence that the smart phone now infests this world.

    So again, who’s PLAN?

    Is it yours?

    Maybe the guy sitting on the top of the mountain a few hundred years ago trying to give away his inheritance to a carpenter made the plan………………………………………….but I doubt it.

      I haven’t really gotten into the Crowley section, so I’m a little less educated on that side of things. I have no idea of his resources, or the type of bloke he was. Although I am intrigued to do some reading on him.

      The 911 thing I have put a lot of time into. I’m Mc member so the rest of the info is not available, but it sounds like a mind bending possibility. A turning point with those for eyes to see. It’s really a case of worlds with in worlds.

      The education situation is not something I can compare, as I don’t know about the type of information we were thought 100 years ago. What I do know is cramming information in from the outside creates great regurgitater’s. The ability to think is slowly becoming a thing of the past for the average man on the street. Even the above average man, is still a compilation of recorded responses, they are just slightly more beneficial responses that the average man is programmed with. I sometimes get the awareness that we are like a bunch of wind up toys. Walking around in predictable patterns with the same responses over and over. I catch myself doing it at times, but thankfully les and less as time goes by.

      When I say plan I would be basing it on the following presuppositions:

      the earth and its history is a story we have been fed by some group or company’s agenda.

      the financial system we use is rigged in the favor of the banks.

      our educational system doesn’t teach us how to think.

      911 was an organized plan long before the towers were constructed.

      These few points and no doubt dozens/hundreds more, all point to a structure. Who created this structure and for what reason???

      The carpenter your mentioning is Jesus I’m guessing. This area would probably take every mind on this site, working together for weeks or months to cut through the mountains of BS around that story.

        I have just taken a good hard look into the origins of the New Testament after looking into ANCIENT GREEK versions and their sources. I have also prior to this looked into the King James Bible and its origins. I also know that JLB has already done his own research into the Bible. I will be showing my evidence in a YT video soon, but what I can say is that no matter what bible version you look into they all track to the same three documents. One of these documents is obvious fraud and is no where near complete, is virtually illegible, held in the Vatican, the other two are nowhere to be found. All three are not ancient for sure and have no primary sources.

          You’re killing it TNG! Looking forward to the Bible video! So… which came first, the New Testament or the Old Testament? Personally, I prefer the JLB and TNG online testaments. I’m not personally Mandela affected, but your judgments and insights seem impeccable… so, currently I’m not sure what side of the great JLB/TNG turther divide to fall on.

          Now that sounds fascinating . 1 billion plus Christians and all can be traced back to 3 sources, 2 missing and 1 is and old illegible document in the Vatican. That is absolutely insane. But sure have you looked around the world lately…….

          I don’t mean to steal TNG’s thunder and I am also looking forward to his findings on the Bible Hoax.

          For those interested, I outlined my own research on the Bible Hoax on a Member Update Video (those were the days).

          FMVU #7, published on 11-11. The numbers were on my side. And to this day that is one of the most important pieces I have released (imo).

      JLB and members like yourself have directly me more towards the idea that these “high level players” don’t have any more sense for it than we do. I think a lot of the occult imagery out there is monkey see, monkey do type stuff, where I suspect that the message behind the symbols has become more confused over time. I have suspicions now that artists like Zemeckis really don’t fully understand the deeper meaning behind the archetypes in their works. Though they may have great insight and knowledge, I suspect they desire analysis of their work that will give them greater understanding. Just a hunch. I recently had a bit of an epiphany as to my personal interpretation of a particular archetype frequently referenced… the twin towers. It was derived from what I suppose is the closest to a primary source as I can imagine for the subject. I’ll explain my thoughts in detail in due time… I believe I’ll make a video analysis about the Back to the Future films, because they contain many of the archetypes I wish to explain. I believe my explanation/theory can account, to some degree, for our apparent collective historic amnesia. Of course, it is only a model I have created for myself, because it gives me the best/most complete/only understanding I have for this world.

      I’m sure I’ll have this piece on Leonardo wrapped up long before I do the BTTF video. Currently my research has brought me to investigating the credibility of Giorgio Vasari and his book Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects. I suspect the others working on these four “Renaissance ” characters will also find themselves researching this Giorgio Vasari character. Giorgio Vasari’s work is the basis for the biography of many artists like Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo. I’d be interested to see what others have found out about Vasari and The Lives.

      I wish I had 40 hours a week to devote to this stuff, but like many other PCs I am actively trying to manifest my own life dreams/personal business, which has me working overtime… that and all the endless distractions…
