You will remember maybe:
It happend in US about 25 years ago, I think. Members of a group of sectarians, all people with highest education and something like managers of high level, decided that it will be the end of the world and drunk poison all together in one of the meetings. All except their "Messiah".
You know, I thought now: how felt he when all these alive persons drunk poison in front of him? And how was it to stay in front of them, dead, fallen in all that poses (I saw the photo)...
More or less the same story happens today in Russia. Not far from Penza there is a group of sectarians waiting for the end of the world in a cave. They stay there from November. There are children there too.
I read from time to time about this group. They said, the authorities wanted to convince them to go out and did many things, but they were very hard in their decision. Seems they was without shoes and I don't know what else. Their "Messiah" was not with them. He was in a psychiatric clinic for some time. Later, maybe he came to them because they speak, he went out the first. I'm not sure, I did not follow this story because I thought: why all this noise? Let them stay there if they want.
Why I write about it?
This in some senses tragic story finished as a comic show.
Yesterday "Messiah" with some women went out of the cave. He went home and was very busy to control his stock of home made wine. So, journalists decided that it was the main problem in his life and he went out because he remembered he has to control the wine.
Other notice says: the ceiling of the cave collapsed on the persons that was there. 7 of them (with "Messiah") went out. Inside there are 28 persons, among them 4 children.
"Messiah" on the photo and in video is the happiest person in the world...
By the way, according to Maya calendar the End of the World will come in 2012.
