So I was flipping through channels this early morning because I couldn't sleep. Came across this televangelist Peter Popoff that claims he has miracle spring water. This infomercial shows individuals claiming they were given money, health, new vehicles and even had their cancer cured while using this 'miracle water'.
Now after a few more minutes have passed, he's telling ME I'll get a 'baraaaand new shiiiiny car my child" if I call the hotline. A quick Google search showed me he was in trouble back in the 80s for similar crap.
My jaw literally has been hanging open since I started watching... How could anyone believe this for a second?? I'm hoping at the end of this crap a giant troll hobbles across the screen saying "gotcha!". But I fear that isn't what will happen..
I'm not religious I suppose, but I do believe there is a special corner of " hell" in the collective consciousness for those that use the word of holy texts to trick people for their own profit.... And honestly, this has nothing to do with religion at its most basic level. This man is preying on people with little hope, sick people and weak minded people for his own profit.
I've never seen a bigger falsehood in my life. If sin is a real thing, this must be it.

It's amazing but that's stuffs been around for a little hole so there's got to be a fair amount of bites.
At the end of the day is that any crazier than believing a guy lived inside a whales belly for a weekend or worshipping a spray painted black rock?
It's mind boggling.
