Why does the world always have to end at midnight, why not Monday at 8:59am? If someone wants to get a cult with tons of followers, tell them the world will end before work on Monday. If I were the cameraman at the cults countdown, I don't think I could help from turning the camera on them and yelling out "BANG!" at zero hour.

But no, seriously, we're all doomed.

I see God through the forests, mountains, lakes, oceans, and the animals that habitat in them.

I know that was kinda random to throw in there, but I hate those extremest people that make propaganda and tell lies upon lies to manipulate people. I feel that way about that fucktarded CBN channel where they try to pry money off of people. I have gone to "sermons" where a lady claimed that if you gave 5 bucks to the church, God would return with you 500. If only people could step away from all that bullshit and realize that the best things in life are things that were here long before we ever existed.

It was Nat Geo and the leader went to jail for statutory/child molestation type stuff.

Funny thing about those cults is that when the leaders are inevitably proven wrong in their predictions, it only strengthens the blind resolve of their followers.
