Look, I don't want to see anyone to go Heaven's Gate on us. I really don't. There are few things more upsetting than people screwing up their lives for the sake of crazy bunk theories. Remember Harold Camping and the May 21st, 2011 thing? Holy shit, these people sold their houses in anticipation of the Rapture. Yeah, whoops.

predicting the end of the world...hmmm, I wonder why that is...

So I had a thought, maybe we should take a page from the crazy book and try dressing up real life predictions as pseudo-science. Maybe have someone at NASA 'uncover' some lost Bible passage about carbon footprints or solar energy. Sure it's lying, but it's lying for science. That's ok, right?
