Another casualty of the will to believe.

"Damn those rascal Aliens for making a fool of me! AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

I keep thinking what incredible theater this is.

Pathetic.

She really has no idea that she channels her inner mental illness.

This whole episode really depressed me, for a number of reasons. Mostly the will to believe from so many people - and the fact that it literally dropped ufology down a few more notches in the eyes of the masses.

I actually feel a little sorry for her. I get the feeling from this video that she might have actually believed her prediction.

Welcome to reality, Blossom.

The desire to worship super-human beings is still with us in the 21st Century.

A modern religion and Blossom is its Prophet.

*Sigh*

Hsve no fear! The Believers have adjusted! Not the Gregorian Calander, the Julian Calander! The date of Contact is now October 24th.

@ Mac

Oh, she absolutely believed that she was channelling alien. No doubt about that.

Bsti--

Seriously? And what, pray tell, will be the excuse when the 24th passes uneventfully?

intense said...

Well, there's always the Romulan galactic calendar.

I believe the aliens will make themselves known on the 12th of Never, personally.

Mac, I'm keeping an eye on this. If it doesn't happen on 10/24, then it will be pushed up to 11/11.
But there are already back-up excuses for these dates that have already been used.
1. It was the fault of the non-believers.
2. It happened in a different dimensional timeline. Had we all believed enough, it would have happened in THIS timeline.

Bsti--

Ah -- the old "When Prophecy Fails" schtick.

"Ah -- the old "When Prophecy Fails" schtick."

Exactly. I can just picture Leon Festinger slowly shaking his head in bemusement and mourning, muttering about "cognitive dissonance redux." Or something like that.
