Save Lives in May, submitted by The Admiral. Save Lives in May was/is an organization that faced no small task: They had to warn the entire globe about huge tsunamis that were going to strike the Atlantic coasts in May of 2006! Asteroids, nuclear weapons and volcanoes all had something to do with it, if I recall.
You may or may not remember a short Weekend Web segment featuring their forum that ran just after the supposed DEATH DATE OF THE ENTIRE WORLD. Well, since then they finally set the record straight and put out a press release explaining why we're not all dead right this very minute.
Yet on May 25th, 2006, the U.S. government unexpectedly delayed its “Divine Strake” test which was to have played a role in the delivery of pre-emptive strikes against the nuclear installations in Iran. Since May 25th, relations between Iran and the United States have thus miraculously improved. The specter of a third world war has momentarily pulled back, and tens of millions of lives have been spared thanks to this program of information.
The threat of a giant tsunami by reportedly hostile extraterrestrials, relayed by the world media, had thus for effect the appeasement of international tensions. A well-meaning extraterrestrial civilization, according to Julien, intervened to minimize the awaited effects of the alert.
However, the danger has not yet been set aside. Eric Julien declares: “A catastrophe of an unprecedented size, stemming from so-called natural causes, may occur in the coming days if the media of the entire world does not inform the public immediately of the reality of the presence of extraterrestrials on Earth, in a documented and objective fashion, with an open-mindedness worthy of advanced civilizations in order to raise the public consciousness.”
Beats me, but thanks for not killing us, E.T.!
