Best part of the whole sotry? He was charged with setting up a religion associated with violence...

"So use D/M/Y." --Mark

I prefer Y/M/D, myself. If you think about it, I'm sure you'll realize how much more logical that is than anything else.

I personally will find kind of troubling if the cult leader of my favorite "Doomsday organization" decides not to join me once we go into the cave. That will be for me a red flag, even if detained.

Second, it is important to bring a calendar and a intrument to measure time. It seems Doomsday will be in May. As far as I'm concerned, it will be next month. So, they spend about 4 months inside a cave without power, water and limited food, just to leave the cave 1 month BEFORE Doomsday? Second red flag.

Third. They left because the cave collapsed. Didn't they even think on what was going on outside the cave? This would have been my point of view, if I was a Doomsday fan: If the cave was collapsing, chances are the Doomsday started a little bit earlier. The cave was not as solid to keep Doomsday outside. It was not true, but it makes a hole in the solidity of their certainty of the Doomsday events (and the cave). Red flag.

I find Doomsday cults a little odd myself, but that one seems to take the biscuit. From my perspective, it seems that those cultists got their eschatology mixed up; they seem to have no clue who are supposed to tell the hills "hide us" and the rocks "fall on us."

Better, in my mind, that when my doomsday comes (if, at no other time, then the hour of my death), I'd be found doing my duties of the moment. Far jollier than hiding in a cave anyway.

The end of the article said that the leader "blessed the cult members, many of whom were women." That makes me wonder what "blessed" is a euphemism for.

I think a big clue should be the fact that their leader didn't go with them in the cave . . . hmmm . . .

I do like the quote "Kuznetsov was said to have blessed his followers, many of whom were women, before sending them into the cave," What kind of blessing did he give them?

"All the guys can take a break, I'm going to bless all the women together in my bedroom."

I like that cop's endquote to that video: "Once you think you've seen it all, something else comes around!"

[Saddam did have WMD.

Or do you believe that all those Kurds gassed themselves?

a) if they've been used, you don't get to use them again

b) why was this not brought up at his trial?

c) (actually asnwering b) where did he get these WMDs from?

I like the Jewish God's rule. In essence, if what the prophet said does not come true, the prophet is killed.

Never underestimate the power of loneliness.

I am reading your post from our cave...
They provide WiFi here.

If you are a doomsday cult, why go hide in a cave. Surely the point of Doomsday is that the world will end....

Why are you not out partying your life away????

cult member: "woo hoo the world ends in 15 days, let's get wasted and have lots of non-commital s£x"
non-cult member: "I don't know, I have to get to work and file my time sheets"
cult member: "I bought some choco sauce and after we are going to go and thump Bush on the nose"
non-cult member: "well, why didn't you say, woo hoo"

Cults being funny is, of course, why Red Dwarf is considered a cult comedy.

Forgot to post this. Not sure when he updated last, but it's pretty funny to read through. A list of Doomsday Cults:

It also makes you wonder if they sometimes decide to merge like businesses. On the serious side...it is sad how many of these there are. I have personal experience with the Jehovah's Witnesses through family that is now out of there. They continue to spout out dates for the end of the world. They don't do it as much as they used to because it's bad for marketing. Everytime they miss it, there is a big drop in membership. Then, after a while, they throw out another one to help drive membership and scare the crap out of everyone. They've also been good at dismissing the dates they missed by saying..."well...you read more into it than what we meant"

I;ll go for the cult that chooses the Doomsweek that wipes out the male population through deadly virus. Of Course my cave is virus free, and I can offer to female believer a chance to get a better "piece of me" if they register during the "Trial session" (that is: every week end before Doomsweek).
On top of that I can create a cool Newspaper ("Doomsweek") that brings back lots of terrified females looking for guys that will "stay around". I need to find a trick to keep the males far away though.. Maybe put flowers, or shoes, or dresses on the cover of my Doomsweek magazine..?

“The comet was heading this way, but we prayed it off course."

Gee, sound like the Y2K hoax. Scott, are you ready to admit yet that the disaster scenarios (none of which happened in countries that did no Y2K work) weren't real?

Mark

[Then you will be surprised to learn that the U.S. National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) said that 500 chemical weapons were indeed found in Iraq. The story is here

Two words for you and Faux News:

Spent Rounds.

Shoot a cannon and you WILL get duds. These duds are still heavy, propelled miles and when it hits the sand it is still going at speed.

Now guess what happens?

The shell buries itself.

Hidden WMD's?

And is there ANY Intercontinental Ballistic Cannon available? No? So how the feck were they supposed to hit the UK or US with them as per our 45-minute dossier that got us into the whole stupid situation? Row the cannon to a couple of miles offshore and fire from there?

OK. Can SOMEONE here tell me WHY?

Why do you go

Month
Day
Year
?


Month/Day, I can understand.

Day/Month, I can understand.

Day/Month/Year, I can understand.

Month/Day/Year, I don't get. Except that you spent a long time not USING the year and got used to Month/Day and you were afraid your brain would implode (or, more likely other people's brains, 'cos it's always SOMEONE ELSE who's the thicky and you're the one going to have to wipe brain goop off your face when the bang happens to someone near you) if you used M/D and D/M/Y.

Most of britain get the idea of May 4th. They use it. They still get the idea of 4/5. And 4/5/2007 comes out naturally, whereas you can say May 4th, 2007 and there's no confusion possible about what each bit means. Heck, we use 4th May, 2007 too.

And still the lack of goop to clear.

So use D/M/Y. Sept 11th is going to remain 11/9 except by the media who like the simple mnemonic of 911. But that's the media for you.

you're wrong in making a joke of them, Scott.
Actually they WERE right.
The world WAS MEANT to end in that date.
Buth then, the Hawaiian court injunction delayed the CERN project...

Actually, Saddam did have WMDs - the intelligence failure was in a massive overestimation of the size of the programs, not in saying that they existed. There were no nukes or biological weapons, but they've found multiple stockpiles of chemical weapons of various types - mustard gas, even a bit of nerve gas IIRC. They also found some efforts to squirrel away capability to re-start development in case the sanctions were ever lifted, but nothing all that big. So while there was a pretty big screwup on the part of the US et al., saying that there were none at all isn't true either.

The Jehovah's Witnesses did the doomsday thing a few times and they are still going.

Michael

Cults are funny.

Except when they stick around for a few hundred years, call themselves a church or mosque or whatever and then get in the way of normal people trying to live.

Or did you mean funny peculiar?
