here's one of the better vids of a believer being bombarded with questions the moment his/camping's bullshit hit the fan:
if camping had any balls he would've drank some cyanide kool-aid like those nike wearing, heaven's gate real talkers..
"Through chatting with a friend over what he acknowledged was a very difficult weekend, it dawned on him that instead of the biblical Rapture in which the faithful would be swept up to the heavens, May 21 had instead been a "spiritual" Judgment Day, which places the entire world under Christ's judgment, he said.
The globe will be completely destroyed in five months, he said, when the apocalypse comes. But because God's judgment and salvation were completed on Saturday, there's no point in continuing to warn people about it, so his network will now just play Christian music and programs until the final end on Oct. 21.
"We've always said May 21 was the day, but we didn't understand altogether the spiritual meaning," he said. "The fact is there is only one kind of people who will ascend into heaven ... if God has saved them they're going to be caught up."
get ready for some hedonistic orgys, smokestack style...
on a side note, i'm in the wrong, god-damned (no pun intended) business:
"n 2009, the nonprofit reported in IRS filings that it received $18.3 million in donations, and had assets of more than $104 million, including $34 million in stocks or other publicly traded securities."
"Is truth stranger than conspiracy-theory fiction? A new book on Area 51 that's already generating a ton of buzz says there was no alien spacecraft that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Instead, Stalin did it--maybe.
According to Annie Jacobsen, the reporter who authored "Area 51," the spaceship was actually a Soviet spy plane that came down during a storm. Jacobsen claims it was filled with bizarre, genetically engineered child-sized pilots. Then-Soviet leader Joseph Stalin was hoping, Jacobsen alleges, that the new cause widespread panic in the U.S.
The story gets even stranger: The leader of the USSR had apparently been inspired by the 1938 radio adaptation radio broadcast of the HG Wells story "War of the Worlds," produced by Orson Welles. The broadcast triggered panic in some listeners who tuned in and mistook it for a real-life alien invasion. (Though later students of the episode claim that the media of Welles' day vastly exaggerated the scale of public alarm over the broadcast.)
And those ET-looking aviators? They were scientific experiments created by the "Angel of Death," Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, for the USSR after the war. The flight was piloted remotely, according to accounts in the book, and was filled with a crew of "alien-like children."
According to Jacobsen's source, a retired engineer who was put on the project in 1978, the look of the human experiments could explain the alien conspiracy theories: "They were grotesquely deformed, but each in the same manner as the others. They had unusually large heads and abnormally shaped oversize eyes."
An interesting talk on how search engines, news sites, and Facebook are filtering a person's results depending on their past actions on the web. Thus, there is no longer a single Google; depending on what websites you've visited and other factors you might get a completely different set of results than I would for a given 'word' searched. The problem with this is that people are creating bubbles for themselves on the web without really knowing it. So, people get funneled into similar political views, stories, movies, music, etc; and the web then functions as a device that boxes people in instead of connecting them to new ideas.
"Amid the justified celebrations over the killing of Osama bin Laden, an awkward question is starting to rear its head: Did U.S. policymakers err in burying the al Qaeda leader at sea?
Already, the decision has provoked criticism from some Islamic scholars, who say a maritime burial isn't in keeping with Muslim law. And there are signs that the move could help fuel skepticism, especially among President Obama's critics, about whether bin Laden was really killed at all.
The Pentagon has said the body was treated in accordance with traditional Islamic procedures--including washing the corpse--before it was placed in the waters of the northern Arabian Sea.
U.S. officials have said they wanted to avoid the al Qaeda leader's grave site becoming a shrine for his followers. They've also said it would have been difficult to find a foreign country willing to accept bin Laden's remains, especially in so short a time: Islamic tradition and practice call for the body of the deceased to be buried within 24 hours of death."
lots of questions..
was this just a ploy to divert americans away from $5 gas?
did they catch dick cheney skullfucking bin Laden's corpse and were thus forced to throw his remains overboard?
has bin Laden been dead for a longer period of time than we actually knew about?
does the government think that even the most blind, flag waving simpleton believes that bin Laden's body was treated "in accordance with traditional islamic procedures"?
does obama really think that 10 years, billions of dollars and a failed war to find one asshole is really a victory?
but still, we here at partyintellectuals are an openminded bunch and encourage everybody but bj to speak their mind.
so, conspiracy or a true american victory? you make the call!!!!
