But what makes the Bible, Quran and other holy books any different? They all prescribe a certain way of living in order to receive a 'reward'.
Ewok adviced people to become more spiritual, more in touched with themselve and inner knowledge, to meditate more, to trust yourself more, and even it what he is predicting for the 21st of December is not true, it is still good advice.

Steve, have you met his mother? Do you have proof that she was manipulated into making this movie? Were you there when it was recorded? Since you demanded evidence on all that was being said by Ewok, do you have evidence of anything that you disagreed upon?
Or are you, like Ewok, and so many others, just speculating?
What you fail to consider is that the OP is simply lying.
Tag on all the mystic bells and whistles, throw in some hysteria, a dash of unbelievably poor storytelling, and you have 70% of the ATS crowd champing at the bit to agree with you.
Of course, that brings the lier in question all the stars and flags that go along with scamming the easily scammed, the inherent problem with the ATS system, and the reason why 90% of threads on this board can easily and logically be dismissed as utter BS.
Which is why I praise those who can see through the mess, and likewise make my bemusement entirely clear when I know that people are being played.
As in this situation.

The way I see it is as follows: (not trying to tell you something you already know) Just net-out at this point.
1.) OP posts very interesting headline. Interesting for those of us who are serious about the subject, or those who love a good sh$$s and giggles.
2.) OP writes a story of HIS experiences and that of his MOM about some big thing that will happen on Dec. 22?
-- This pulls people in a little more, some really want to know more, others are already skeptical
3.) Questions, statements, opinions, some debated comes by the readers. (some real nasty comments and even threats between the posters)
4.) OP again posts some answers and comes through on his promise to post pictures.
5.) Again, -- This pulls people in a little more, some really want to know more, others are already skeptical
6.) #3 happens again,
7.) OP replies to most questions, in some cases, he is probably a little frustrated, and some of his responses are a little defensive and derogatory.
8.) More questions, Beleivers getting dug in, Skeptics asking for more proof, some attacking OP as a fraud, others just some personal comments, thread just keeps growing.
9.) OP again comes through and posts video that was requested by posters. He really comes through
10.) #3 happens again, more debate, more posts, Believers believe, Skeptics continue to be skeptic.
11.) #7 Again
12.) You get the picture. Either you believe or you don't. But you agree...interesting thread, some fun reads and overall OP has provided and interesting story.
Thats how I see it. Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy, Healthy New Year too!!!!
