    soz for a negative nancy thread but i saw this on youtube randomly

    it made me think a little, its alot more than just a bunch of freaks commiting suicide, some of them took 22 years to take their lives in honour of their goal

    its something i cant understand, like its not a knee jerk reaction

    I just watched all 3, I love this sort of stuff but it always makes me feel a little bit uneasy if you know what I mean.

    In a way I can see how it was easy for them after being shut off in a community like that for so long.

    although im sure they were still brickin it lol

    If they wanna take thier own lives for a cause they're gullible to believe in, up to them innit. Don't understand their motives or what they are hoping to achive by doing this. Mind you, at least they are not killing innocence people whilst they carry out their suicide

    thought it was the other Heaven's Gate, the film widley regarded as the biggest flop ever, but these freaks seem to have flopped harder, i can't watch these vids coz the way they talk there's so much conviction it what the say, it's too creepy for me, they honestly believe themselves...

    this

    kind of sad, but whatever they want you know

    I don't get why, in this day and age, people fall into all this. I mean I respect if some one is religious, but don't be a fanatic.

    I kinda feel sorry for people like this sometimes, you don't know what shit they have been dealt in life tbh, this could be a reason for them turning to 'cults' like this, who knows. Some cults obviously brainwash people but sometimes I reckon people turn to cults cause their life is so shit and desperate, quite sad. Sometimes I think people just want to have faith in something and have some hope because sometimes it's hard to have hope in this world when things get shitty.

    It's strange what people believe, but they believe so strongly in it!

    That bald man definitely looks like an alien, but I didn't trust him from the first video, he barely blinks!!

    first one has much bullshit in it.

    Every year people thought the world would change. It won't for a while, and it might change because of technology or war

    Cults always scare me a bit. I couldn't imagine anyone would ever talk me into killing myself thinking that it would be a good idea.

    I just can't really work out how people would think that there is something better out there when there's no real evidence for it. Although I suppose what welsh said about people that have a really shite life find it easier to believe in something far away, being better than trying to better themselves physically and in a more realistic way first.

    Still, you wouldn't find me eating apple sauce with smushed up sleeping tablets and drinking vodka afterwards!

    hmm, intresting.. looks like a 'cult' has sucked in people who are venerable, naive and unsure of how they fit in the world. Similar to how the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Bahai Faith has sucked in millions over the years to belive their crap.

    i feel sorry for the old woman who lost her daughter.. but i feel even more sorry for the fact she even belives! that her daughter has gone to a higher place...

    seems that 'Do' guy is literally, the biggest douche in the universe!
