I get email

I’m not going to post this email I received, simply because it is insanely long, 15,000 words of random caps and peculiar color changes. Just to give you a taste, this is the subject line:

Subject: SCIENCE, AND THEOLOGY {{ Cogent Word for the 100′s of new ears in Science and theology we contacted/called last week around earth }} CHIMERISM, deaths/Wolbachias/satans attack upon Adams Society, ULtra Microbic Life Force/death Force — How does the Harlot called death ride Adams children and cause death and aging??? Listing below — {{ A Brief Word on obamas Buffet taxes, and Word that all most pay their share, Very well stated }} The Holyone has been Shaking Greece trying to tell Germany and all do not feed them any more — Eleanor Mondale and Kara Kennedy Esq; Die at Fifty one, but hours from each other — His Quakes now become stronger to Oklahoma and Canada —- SCIENCE allowed Gamers to finish their Research — “i” gather those of increased knowledge and wisdom…Death and aging now end…..It has begun…Bring home your Missions…Dubai city is soon no longer…..

What I did want to share, though, is that this one is illustrated. Along with the author’s claim that he’s the prophet specifically sent to gather the 144,000 people who get to go to heaven, he included a lovely illustration of his lord and master, Jesus, who just happens to look rather European.

Green eyes, really? And not even a hint of a tan? Is it cloudy all the time in heaven or something?

But the other interesting thing about it is that the author has apparently been looking for science images to bolster his credibility, somehow. The amusing part is that he replaces the scientific caption with his own…it sorta changes the impact of the picture. This one, for instance, looks to me like some photomicrographs of developing Arabidopsis — it becomes something more nefarious when filtered through the twisted mind of my correspondent.


{{ One of the many biological machines, developed by the unclean spirit called death/aging/satan!!! It is not the machine you look upon, it being so small and microbic, it is the ultra microbic spirit that is navigating the machine, hidden within!!! The image is of Leaven/yeast/decomposer society/death }}

His other obsession is with chimeras, which he seems to think are truly evil. I think he seized upon the image below because it says “merge”, when all it really is is a digital merge of confocal images viewed at a couple of different wavelengths.


When both man and woman are conceived they are female, then the Fathers genome sent through time through each child born since Adam, makes the change of Female to Male, both being first given female organs, then the testosterone levels, with but a few more changes, and done, Man is born from God and Woman!!! But as shown in the first book of the Bible, and the Last, Woman the Daughter of Eve/ADAM is under greater attack!!!

I like this one best, though. It ought to be titled “SCIENCE OFFENDING GOD!”

{{ Stem Cells of Life, as much as we tried, we could not locate an image of a Chimera, but the image below, is of Science trying hard to offend God by making a chimera of Human and animal embryos!!! And is how “i” believe Wolbachia/myco-controlled phages and viruses are able to breech the segregated world of the Givers of Life, the Stem Cells of Gods Sons Spirit }}

Chimeras, “i” myself have been searching for the way Wolbachia/myco-bacterial phage spirits have altered Gods Children of Adams genomes!!! Interestingly, when “i” settled on Chimeras, and went into the internet, and merely typed in Chimeras, very little arose truly, yet some very interesting theories were exposed, they being Wrong, yet showed they were trying to awake too deaths/aging attack upon mankind/Adamskind!!!

It goes downhill from there. The rest is ranting about Obama, sodomites, droughts and hurricanes, larded with lots of bible quotes…the usual pedestrian stuff I find in my mailbox.

    I kid, Bill.

    It is not the machine you look upon, it being so small and microbic, it is the ultra microbic spirit that is navigating the machine, hidden within!!!

    That’s why microscopes were invented, to find the Satan working within life.

    Seriously, though, this person is not evidencing a rational mind at all. I hope someone’s looking after this individual.

    It’s a tribute to the original designers of the email specification that subject lines that long are even allowed. I’m curious as to his non-capitalisation of ‘Satan’ though.

    As to the picture of Jebus, He’s a ginger, which explains why the Romans nailed him up – obviously an early case of gingerphobia.

    To be fair, I think the second set of images may well be a chimera. The labels are for early embryonic inner cell mass or trophectoderm. The GFP tag says that they are human embyronic stem (hES) cells. So my quick interpretation would be that someone stuck hES cells into some other embryo and thus did actually create a chimera. I’m not sure what the bottom panels that appear to make a human ICM and a native ICM are showing though…. Maybe it’s the creation of mouse and human monozygotic twins!

    And still Jesus has long hair like a Frankish king, in stark contrast to what Paul wrote about what long hair is to be for a man.

    I have twin uncles who were the right age to become hippies during the 60s, and they both grew their hair long. My grandmother, exasperated by their refusal to cut their hair, wondered aloud: “I hate this long hair in men—I’d like to meet the man who started this fad and give him a piece of my mind.”

    My uncle pointed to a picture of white, long-haired Jesus on the wall (they were all Catholic Croats): “I think he started it, Ma.”

    “Is your real name, Captain Obvious?”

    I mention the possibility of psychosis, because people seem to be taking him seriously. I also can’t really diagnose him from afar. Addressing what he says is pointless. Of course, people can do whatever they wish or have fun with this guy’s ramblings. I just think it is more important to address ideas from “sane” people that are espousing antiscience ideas in the name of religion. This anti-science culture is too prevalent in the US and it is bringing the country down

    And another mail that screams of mental illness. You sure now how to attract the crazies, PZ. This particular piece looks like unstructured thought that is associated with Schizophrenia – complete lack of logic consistency, odd capitalization, absurd punctuation (lots of brackets, almost no full stops), obsession with people lacking any actual connection to the subject matter… tragic, really.

    Schizophrenia in particular is unusually consistent in how it affects writing. So much, in fact, that there has been research done on how to write programs capable of identifying schizophrenics from their writing alone.

    In the BBC video series “Human Planet”, there is a segment on men in New Guinea who go into the forests to hunt birds of paradise so they can decorate themselves with the colorful feathers. These are collected in order to attract mates in an annual Goroko dance festival. Merely possessing and artistically displaying the collected feathers elevates a man’s status.

    You know what I like most about the internet? The fact that there are people like the person who sent this email on it. Some of them go so far as to author entire huge websites of this strangeness.

    I recall watching various movies and television series (inevitably some kind of “sci-fi x-files like” fantasy stuff), where a character will stumble upon the “strange guy’s” temple, with writing on every wall and surface (including the floor), along with bookshelves filled with similar strangeness. I’ve known that such individuals did exist, and I’ve often wondered what – if anything – ever happened to these rambling bits of prose?

    Were they destroyed? Were they cataloged? Could they be researched? Was there anything to learn from them?

    These people eventually found the internet, and some have built websites far larger than any physical medium could contain for their “temples of prose”; we can all see them (crank.net, anyone?) – but sadly, most all of them are just as opaque as if they never existed, and not much can be gleaned from them, except that their authors have a skewed outlook on the world.

    Still – I am glad they have another outlet, and that we can finally see their musings, and still hope – in some manner – to be able to understand what it is that they experience…

    I knew a man who thought Satan resided inside the body in microscopic form. This man would spit all the time. He’d try to control himself while indoors but outside it was spit, spit, spit, as he tried to keep the devil outside his body. If he was standing still, it would take only a few minutes before there was a big pool of frothy white saliva beside him.

    People like this are mad – they should be in hospital and given the drugs they need to act normally again.

    That’s would should happen but during the 1980′s (the decade of greed is good) Governments around the world said fuck the crazies, give’em nothing, and let’s put the money we save into the politician’s pension fund.

    This reminds me of a SF story I read once about a world in which the microscope was invented earlier and used to examine blood. And how religious superstition interpreted something in the blood (I don’t recall what it was, but it was some common inheritable thing observable by microscope) as the presence of an evil spirit.

    The story then tracked through time observing how mechanically observable ‘evil possession’ affected society and people.

    I wish I could recall the author and stories name. I recall it as being very good.
