Please let me know if this has been covered on ATS before, even supermods aren't always that super when it comes to searching.

I have never heard of these people before, but they remind me of that Heaven's Gate cult. This is a little alarming that they are all planning to meet, what if the world doesn't end on July 5th like they think it will, will they commit suicide or do something worse?

SubGenius UFO Cult Prepares For July Apocalypse


CLEVELAND, Ohio, April 3, 2006: The Church of the SubGenius has announced that the end of the world will take place on Wednesday, July 5, 2006. In preparation for the fulfillment of this doomsday prophecy, the Church is requesting that all of its members participate in a bizarre religious ceremony taking place in upstate New York, during the final weekend before the arrival of the apocalypse.

Since its inception in 1953, Church founder J.R. "Bob" Dobbs has predicted that a fleet of flying saucers will arrive at the beginning of July to destroy the worldwide Conspiracy against the Church of the SubGenius, while all ordained SubGenius ministers will be rescued by escape vessels piloted by the Alien Sex Goddesses, also known as the Xists.

The Church is inviting all of its members worldwide to gather together for the final hours in Sherman, New York from Thursday, June 29 to July 5, at a clothing-optional outdoor campground called Brushwood Folklore Center.

these are indeed some scary times we live in, but these people are not helping, they are actually making it worse for themselves and their relatives. I hope for their sakes they are right and we are wrong and the apocalpyse comes as a surprise to the rest of us. Btw I'll make sure to party hard this 4th of July, since it could be my last.

****I had no idea that this "cult" was a parody of a cult, but now that we know it's a joke, could the people reading this thread please remember's not real. well it's real in that a bunch of nutty people will get together however they don't believe the world will really end.*****

I happen to know that the world will end on July 7, 2006. It's an exact
extrapolation gleaned from Revelation, astrological charts, channeled entities,
Hopi Elder teachings, and my Magic 8 Ball, which is never, ever wrong.

Come on, people. These are the SubGeniuses! If they're not right, who is?

link sorry. i tried to give this some sort of credibility, i really did. but i don't buy it.
cults say a lot of things, yet they can never seem to predict anything until after it happens.

a fleet of flying saucers will arrive at the beginning of July to destroy the worldwide Conspiracy against the Church of the SubGenius, while all ordained SubGenius ministers will be rescued by escape vessels piloted by the Alien Sex Goddesses, also known as the Xists.

flying saucers huh?...riiiiight..

Don't drink the Kool-Aid and we'll send help if we don't hear anything... have a nice time at summer camp!
Guess we'll know in July - if we still have a planet by then...

Yeah been covered before, it's all a farce.
It's a joke they made up.

None of them actually beleive it.

There more of a group that's just for fun,
not actually a religious group.

Not surprised you were'nt sure if there
was a thread about it already WorldWatcher,
only one was made, and it did'nt get alot of attention.

To add to iori_komei's comment, you might want to read this from the *official* Subgenius website, as well as what's on wikipedia about them.

So these nuts are just joking? or are they really going to meet?

thanks for the links guys, I really never heard of them before today.

iori find me the link to the original thread and I'll close this one.

That was easier to find than I thought it would be.

Most clothing optional events involve people who have no bussiness walking around with no clothes on, ewwwwww

I visited their website.. and left absolutly humored beyond belief..

Here are some commericals they link on their website..

Here's some more info:

Pity the poor human Earth Pink who comes looking for a SIMPLE, SHORT EXPLANATION of The Church of the SubGenius™, one that he or she can UNDERSTAND QUICKLY. If the Church could provide THAT, it would be bigger than Islam or Christianity by now -- and probably much, much worse.

A True SubGenius, however, understands EVERYTHING, INSTANTLY upon exposure to the Word or even just the Face of Dobbs.

The next step after reading the Sacred Pamphlets (links above) would be to procure THE BOOK OF THE SUBGENIUS and its companion volume, REVELATION X, from our shops, EBay, or better bookstores anywhere. (The feature-length video, ARISE!, will do in a pinch for illiterates.) There are samples of these masterpieces and other primal SubGenius liturgy in our CLASSICS section.

We also offer several SLAQs and FAQs from various SubGeniuses who, over the years, did their very best to explain the unexplainable.

The Church is seeking performers and producers from the adult entertainment industry in particular, because sexual freedom has been an important part of Church doctrine from the start. X-Day will be a celebration of pornography and adult entertainment, and certain parts of the event will be restricted to adults only. Only ordained ministers of the Church of the SubGenius are allowed at the event, but the Church is accepting memberships at its standard rate of $30 up until the final hours of July 4.

I'm just wondering how long it would take me to hitchhike from Seattle to upstate New York....Sounds like a PAARTAY is in the works. What I don't understand is why the $30.00 hookup fee if the world is gonna end the very next day.... Hmmm unless, being the future seers that they proclaim to be, they know they're gonna need it to bail themselves out of jail once they come down and realize they're still on planet Earth.

I read abit of that site and it's pure crap!! I've seen alot of that stuff, but that really takes the cake.
As a moderator I think you should try and keep that stuff out of these forums.

Very, very funny.

But the name - SubGenius kinda gave it away.

posted on Apr, 6 2006 @ 11:13 AM
Maybe this is their way of thinning of the herd so to speak,no big suprise how many times has the world been comming to an end from the Jehovah's Witnesses?

posted on Apr, 6 2006 @ 11:27 AM
Can it wait until after July 17th ?? my vacation is over then...then its ok to destroy the world.

posted on Apr, 6 2006 @ 11:46 AM
End of July is more convenient for me.

I suppose they will find them all poisoned covered with purple sheets?
Its a darn shame.

I've lived thru a few of these scares.

ADDED: on the other hand, the noose is tightning around our necks. They may have something here after all.

OMFG you people have never heard of the Great Bob Dobbs (may he bring us Salvation) and the GURANTEED SALVATION or TRIPLE YOUR MONEY BACK promise of our Church of the Subgenius?!


I have been to Devivals in Austin and Amsterdam and have been a follower of the great Bob for MANY YEARS


As an aside - this thread singlehandedly ruined my concept that ATS members have ANY significant critical thinking skills to discern fact from fantasy. Solely the most depressing moment here at ATS for me. SHAME ON ANY OF YOU THAT BELIEVE THINGS LIKE THIS *COULD* BE TRUE.

Jesus J.R. ChristnDobbs

[ed] OH YEAH! I have drank the red KoolAid we serve, and it tastes great! Served by Satan's Cheerleaders (rawr!) at the last Devival I attended in Austin. Hell, I was at the Cannibus Cup in 2004 on accident (just wanted to go to Amsterdam, had no idea the cup was taking place that week) and that Devival was pretty good too.

Slack above all,
Deacon of the Subgenius Violent

Light snaks and iced tea will be provided but if you need something to take the edge off for the END we suggest that you BYOB.
