UFO Summoning Story Gets Weirder 

To no-one's surprise, Prophet Yahweh is now backing out of his promised UFO summoning events (making up a bunch of mumbo-jumbo to "explain" the reasons). It's entertaining to read his various excuses as the days go by. Among his excuses is one regarding a conspiracy by the "Luciferians". On the other side, here is an article where Luciferians are saying Yahweh is a pawn of a christian conspiracy. Bizarre and almost comedic!

Judging by Yahweh's writing style, he's not a very intelligent or educated man, but I must give him credit for coming up with a very unique way of building a "cult". ;-) I'm sure he will have at least a small group of followers eventually (just don't drink the Kool-Aid people!)

Real-Life Zombie Video Game 

OK, this one's hard to believe, but fascinating to watch none-the-less. A guy is hypnotized while playing a Zombie video game. He's then placed into an identical, but real environment, given a gun, and then woken up to find real-life zombies coming at him. He starts out confused... then quickly loses his mind.

Assuming the guy could be hypnotized such that the game's light flashes are his "trigger" to put him under again, would he still suffer psychological damage from an experience like this? Are the people staging this not guilty of torture?
