Well, it's about time.

I was shocked (and kinda dissapointed) to find out that was the private secret that made the Pope faint when he was told. Don't get me wrong here, being told how & when a lunatic was gonna cap you is pretty bad.... but I always imagined the third secret of Fatima was more Apocolyptic.

The REAL third secret of Fatima: "Drink Ovaltine"

It is more apocalyptic, Eric. This is, to put it mildly, not the real goods. Let's just get that out of the way right now. It's BS.

What is the third secret, you ask me, and how do I know it? Well, how I know it is kind of complicated, and you don't really want or need to know. But come on. A Bishop in white? Hardly. The real text of the Third Prophecy of Fatima has to do with the Nephillim, the 'giants in the Earth' who were 'created by the mating of the Sons of God and the Daughters of Man' and when and where they will be returning. Let's just say you shouldn't make any plans for December 23, 2012, okay?

Trust me on this.

Okay, okay, I'm sorry, but I couldn't resist. It was too easy. Sorry. That was inspired by an email I got yesterday basically accusing me of concealing that very fact.

I got a screwy dynamic going with the blog, y'know?

I thought the Third Secret of Fatima was "Wear Sunscreen"...

Isn't that Dec. 23, 2012 thing an Aztec or Inca prophecy? One of those Central/South American civilzations, I thought...

Ezrael, we all know that you are really Robert Shea just trying to drum up paranoia so that people will start buying your book again. Look, it was fun while it lasted. And those pictures and the fake homepage aren't fooling anyone. Don't you think you've taken this a bit too far?
