And so it begins...
China has arrested nearly 1,000 people in a crackdown on a Christian sect that spread doomsday rumours and targeted communist rule, state media
said on Thursday ahead of the supposedly Mayan-foretold apocalypse.
The Christian-inspired group "Almighty God" has been accused of spreading doomsday rumours apparently linked to the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar
and urging followers to slay the "red dragon" of communism, state media reports said.
Close to 1,000 followers of the sect, which state-run media labels an "evil cult" -- the same description it applies to the banned Falun Gong group --
have been held in a nationwide crackdown that began last week, state-run CCTV reported.
Police detained more than 350 Almighty God members in the southwestern province of Guizhou, while in the northwestern province of Qinghai more than
400 were held for "gathering unlawfully", the Beijing Times reported.
Smaller numbers have been held in other areas across the country.
Almighty God predicts that three days of darkness will begin on Friday, and has called on its members to overthrow China's ruling Communist Party,
which it refers to as "the big red dragon", the state-run Global Times reported.
It has also told believers that a new era presided over by a "female Jesus" has arrived and that tsunamis and earthquakes will rock the world, the
Global Times said.
I shouldn't be laughing because the reality is that there are a ton of people who are genuinely wanting/waiting for the world to end and these various
groups across the world are kind or worrying me as mentioned in other threads they might make something happen if nothing actually happens. My guess
is that mass suicides will occur, very sad I might add.
We will probably hear a lot of crazy reports over the next few days of groups/individuals going bat # crazy due to all the hype that has surrounded
this date. I am off for the holidays and have no plans on going anywhere starting today until the 22nd. I have a large stockpile of beer and other
"necessities" and I am going to enjoy the "Mayan Apocalypse" from the comfort of my own home and stay tuned to all the news reports and join my fellow
ATS members in the madness that is sure to follow.
I should order a "I survived the Mayan Apocalypse and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" shirt.
Maybe I am getting too ahead of myself
Stay locked and loaded my friends!
