Aum Shinrikyo now known as Aleph was a religion cult that started in Japan in 1984 by Shoko Asahara. The cult reached worldwide infamy in 1995 when it
carried out the sarin gas attack in the Tokyo subways.
On May 28, 1993, a large seismic disturbance near the Banjawarn sheep station in West Victoria, Australia tripped earthquake sensors across the globe
and registered 3.9 on the Richter scale. Witnesses saw a bright flash of light "like a far off explosion". It was later discovered that Aum owned a
large plot of land near the epicenter. Some scientists and authorities believed this could have been a bomb test or even possibly an A-Bomb
Researchers in 1997 investigated and claimed it was a meteorite, but no crater was ever found. Although there is no mention of radioactive testing
having been done either.
My question is, if a cult of what may have had as many as 40,000 members worldwide, had the ability to possibly build and test an A-Bomb in the
Outback of Australia, then why is it out of the realm of possibility terrorist groups such as al-Qaida would not, especially given the financial
backing and higher membership numbers?
