Next week on A&E, series on 'True Believers' : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

As we race towards rollover it seems that there is a major effort to focus on the potential problems surrounding the activities of Christian Zealots and Doomsday Cults. This forum has spent a great deal of bandwidth discussing many aspects of this subject and it should be of interest to many that A&E will be airing these shows next week. It appears that some of our favorite incidents of the past (Jonestown, Heavens Gate, Waco) will be featured in this series and the response on this forum should make for fervent reading. Personally, I have a great deal of respect for the offerings from the folks at A&E but cant you already hear the ravings of government spin from our resident fanatics. Let the games begin.

You are about the biggest fanatic on this forum, you pathetic piece of crap.

I humbly remind you that we have a date to mud wrestle. That said, I wonder why this thread is 'crap'? I hear 'religious zealot' and y2k mentioned in the same breath fairly often. Just this morning ABC news ran a story about some fellow (con artist?) who claims to have invented a free electricity machine. The reporter referred to the people at this man's seminar as "anti-media, anti-government, and a little y2k". I thought this was an interesting combination of characteristics attributed to what we were led to believe were marks for a con game.

Why attack before you've even seen the show? You may learn something interesting about human nature. We have ample evidence that some people are willing to believe an anything, however outrageous. Maybe the show will attempt to explain why this is.

I see no reason to fear this topic strikes too close to home. Why do you?

Obviously your definition of Truth is "anything the Government says".Unfortunately this definition is not found in Webster's Dictionary and exists only in the minds of blind socialists like yourself.No wonder the docter slapped your mamma when you were born.

Helen: Looking forward to it!

Well, I see that the idiot savant KOS has come out of his stupor long enough to exhale. Wait for the programming you moron then make a fool of yourself. You have to view to have a viewpoint.

I agree with your statement in general but I have no respect for A&E anyway. Puppets of the new age and the politically correct views. like A&E (THE PRIMO OCCULT NETWORK--ALONG WITH TLC, HISTORY, DISCOVERY) knows a thing about "real" christians just like they know something about the bible? what they know is the subtle lies of the master of the occult. the master of the occult, the devil himself, is just pouring out, in ways i have never seen before, his lies, his deceptions, his subtle poison into the populus thru this medium. you respect A&E??? just look objectively at the weekend line up sometime and take your pick of occult, murder, tragedy, pornography and mistruths (oh, i forgot that is the history channel).

tt, you are so correct. Look closely and you will see the horns on Harry Smith. BE AFRAID!

Sping of Kain = mud-wrestling religious zealot

Amused Regards,
