October 14, 2010 10 Comments
Crackpot Nation: An ongoing series which will feature in each post a (totally non cynical) PSA on a local crackpot/wacko that peddles religious/new age/pseudo scientific/irrational concepts and “teachings” to the irrational and gullible masses of this great nation!
Our first post will focus on the life and teachings of “The Maitreya Buddha” (TMB)
This is what his Facebook page has to say:
The Maitreya Buddha is already among us since 09th May 1971 and will gone away from sight of humans in 21st December of 2012. On that moment, the Earth will react by making earthquakes, blowing high winds etc. After that moment, a new era will start on this earth where humans will see the hidden truth within themselves and they will defeat their birth and death forever.
The truth that the Maitreya Buddha says is so precious. “Come and See” is the way he utter. We are his followers. Are you……
“high winds etcetera?” oh you know the “usual” Armageddon stuff…high winds, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, plagues death and war…you know
You can meet and talk with Maitreya Buddha at;
Every Saturday & Sunday at 9.00am-12.00noon at the above address.
Hmm earthquakes you say? when is the Mayan calendar supposed to end? I keep forgetting! perhaps a wager is in order. Who do you think has figured out the correct date for the Armageddon/rapture of 2012? TMB or the Mayans? scroll down to the comments section and tell us!
Keep an eye out for local wackos and if you think they are crazy enough to be featured here, drop us a line!
