Heaven's Gate vs. Planet Niburu
    #3608544 - 01/10/05 05:41 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I was recently chastised for comparing the two "cults". Both link spiritual beliefs to the arrival of heavenly bodies and shifts in consciousness. Neither one has supporting evidence for their claims.

Was I in error to note some striking parallels?

There is no error in correct comparison! People in cults generally just dont like to be pointed out, that their cult has very similar ideas in other cults!

Also cults usually aim to recruit or brainwash weak minded individuals and there are very precise techniques for doing so! This could be a reason for such similarities?

No error. They are similar. They are also both outdated.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

They are both based on false beliefs.

Swami, someone of your intellect should realize that the only truthful group is:

only wrong assuming that continuing to live is 'good' and 'right', and to die for seemingly no reason is 'stupid' and 'wrong'

no there isn't anything wrong at all, and it's important to compare because of how heaven's gate turned out  :sad:

that isn't to say planet niburu people will do the same though :wink:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie
