    Not really. In CTLandia, there is only one government, the US government. No other nations exists, the US government controls America and the other 95% of the world simply is a myth. No other "gubmints" exist and even if they did, they would simply obey orders. Because.

    It's a strange view of the world, but it exists.

    Plenty of apocalyptics believe in conspiracy theories regarding the hushing up of the coming Antichrist and Tribulation. The difference is that in this narrative, the conspiracy theory is secondary to the religious narrative. Fundamentally, the PX craze is a religious narrative. A wild seer (Nancy Lieder), informed by the teachings of a dead prophet (Zecharaia Sitchin), and the voices of star gods, foretells a time of coming doom. That's why it's been so easy to tie it to the Book of Revelation.
    "Occam" is the name of the alien race that will enslave us all eventually. And they've got razors for hands. I don't know if that's true but it seems like the simplest answer."

    I simply have not been convinced by recent arguments that this is true.


    Or to put it another way... Is belief in ancient alien visitors now classified as a religion on this board?

    Your being convinced or not now determines how this board classifies things? I think not.

    Anyway, drop this side discussion on religion/sitchin and whatnot, and stay on topic. Or we could simply close the thread since we're well past the prediction date by now.
