"Alienshifter is the one who takes the Oath in order to uphold and defend Humanity and their Rights in any contact with Alien or Extraterrestrial beings in addition to represent the Earth in contact and communication with Star Visitors from all other Planets or in the Council of the Worlds and Federation of Planets." Alienshift is an eclectic conspiracy site, exploring such subjects as islamic ufology, the pole shift of 2012, Edgar Cayce, sufism, Akhenaton as well as the more expected fare, UFO videos, Nostradamus and the bible code. That is only the tip of the iceberg. Lots and lots of youtube videos grace the site of this New Hope for Humanity.

The only conspiracy I see is how Alex Jones got all these morons to pay his salary. Incredible!

Why does it have to be so badly designed?

I liked the first two sentences of the "pole shift" link:
There are many quantifiable scientific indicators proving that the Earth and the Solar System are going through changes which have never previously occurred in recorded human history. Many psychics and channelers say that we have entered the beginning of a dimensional shift which is already deeply affecting all of our lives.
Never have dubious claim (many scientific indicators) and absolute cast-iron certainty (psychics and channelers think we'll meet a tall dark stranger) been such close bedfellows.

can someone non-crazy summarise Islamic UFOlogy for me? I'm intrigued by the concept.

empath: I wouldn't have thought so, no.

Check out the Islamic Anti-Christ though: he's an American who destroys the Koran by introducing universal health care. It's like an Al-Qaeda training manual written by the Cato Institute.

It's like TimeCube, redux.

Sites like this should just redirect here.

Oh webcomics, is there anything you can't teach us?

I really can't wait for New Year's Day 2013. I think I'll go to Terrence McKenna's grave and laugh at it. Mainly because he's the only one of these nuts who would have a sense of humor about it.

It's a pity When Prophesy Fails is out of print.

Was that intentionally written as such, or did just stringing together random words become fashionable recently?

Does anyone have links to any papers exploring why almost all conspiracy sites utilize the same aesthetic cliches? The CAPITALIZATION of CRITICAL WORDS is textbook schizo, but wouldn't the obsessive need to express world shattering truths lead to more dabbling with CSS layouts and less random use of the color tag, erratic justification, and loud backgrounds? I'm sure at least one psych major has explored this in a thesis paper at some point.

Meh. I've been scared shitless of what the future held since I read 1984 in 1976. Every few years holds its new End of the World scenario. At this point, I'm no longer scared, just bored. :\

The site looks like the end result of combining Wikipedia with one of those "Will it Blend?" demos.

I prefer to get my crazy from Above Top Secret. The forums there are a real treat.

For example, did you know that a nuclear attack on the US is scheduled for tomorrow?
posted by Pastabagel at 7:39 PM on August 5, 2007

Thanks, Pastabagel, for the link. It made me laugh when a pop-up ad burst forth. Oh, Internet, is there nothing you can't out-banal?

That thread on the Aug. 6th nuclear attack is priceless. I don't care if they're right and I die in nuclear hellfire tomorrow, that's a damn funny discussion.
