bizarre Bible hoaxes 2002 Jul 26
     ... religion . hoaxes ...
"This site is not yet complete, and probably never will be. There are countless forgeries and hoaxes claiming to be The Real Bible (instead of the one we normally use, which -- according to the hoaxers -- has been altered and censored by the nasty Popes or the priests). ... Several groups of people have a vested interest in lies and forgeries. Cult weirdos who seek support for their ideas. Publishers who are out to make money. Exhibitionists who want to become famous by creating a sensation. ... This site is intended as a reference for those who have found mysterious or sensational claims concerning 'the Real bible' or manuscript finds with amazing new information. I'm sure you will find most of the answers here. If not, please drop me a line and I'll expand the material."

     ... hoaxes . resources ...
"A hoax is a deceptive act or scheme that plays upon the credulity of others. Great hoaxes, like the moon hoax of 1835 and the Cardiff Giant, manage to create a sense of mystery and astonishment. They force people to question their assumptions, to wonder what is real and what is not. Not so great hoaxes usually manage to be, at the very least, amusing. The worst kind of hoaxes can actually cause serious damage to people's lives and finances. In terms of deciding what to include in this site, I have relied upon a narrower, 1808 definition, taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, that describes hoaxing as 'Contriving wonderful stories for the publick.' The phrase 'for the publick' is the key part of this definition. Hoaxes, unlike mere practical jokes, are deceptive acts that are played out before a public audience. The larger the audience, the better."

"When the new millennium begins, a great NEW KINGDOM also comes. It marks the END of SCIENCE. No matter whether you believe or not, no matter if you want or not, this is already a fact, and will definitely become the reality in the very near future. Actually, my first article 'Yun-Qi Kingdom -- Fundamental One' obviously has very well put today's PHYSICS into the DEAD END. Students, teachers and professors who have a solid background of mathematics and/or physics can easily examine what I say by yourselves. If you think my first article does not sufficiently shake down today's MATHEMATICS, my second incoming article 'Yun-Qi Kingdom -- Fundamental Two' will clearly show you that the MATHEMATICS we have used for centuries is also considerably and lawlessly WRONG. Please do not use today's knowledge as your prejudices to cut immediately what I have said down. Try to investigate it first. I hope one can beat Yun-Qi Kingdom down by using today's science and knowledge, but I'll be afraid to say that NOBODY CAN."

     ... conspiracy . End Times . paranoia . politics . hoaxes ...
"We are a righteous knee in the groin of disinformation, fingers of Truth gouging deeply into the bloodshot eyes of deception. We delve into the deepest, darkest corners of the media; skulk through hideous movie sequels; probe paranoid publications and saucer-nut screeds. More often than not, we find hideous secrets Man Was Not Meant To Know. And we bring them to you, in the comfort of your own home. Because even in these, the End Times, it's all about comfort."

     ... extraterrestrials . hoaxes ...
"The bottom line: whether you believe something weird happened at Roswell, New Mexico or not, the 'alien' in this film sure as heck looks like a competently-made (but far from perfect) dummy. Want to know how to make your own? You got it. Just don't tell anyone else about this stuff. These are trade secrets!"

"The project was to create a spoof website of a company peddling the mark of the beast, and then to compile and tabulate e-mails and log data that trickled in over the next few months from people and companies who wanted to know more. The site was to be loaded with enough clues so that anyone who scrutinized it would know it wasn't for real and would therefor not panic. It was never intended to fool, but rather to make curious."

anti Internet Hoaxes 2000 Jul 13
     ... skepticism . hoaxes ...
"The Internet is constantly being flooded with information about computer viruses and Trojans. However, interspersed among real virus notices are computer virus hoaxes. While these hoaxes do not infect systems, they are still time consuming and costly to handle. At CIAC, we find that we are spending much more time debunking hoaxes than handling real virus incidents. This page describes only a small number of the hoax warnings that are found on the Internet today."

     ... Apollo program . conspiracy . hoaxes ...
"At the dawn of the new millennium we should recognise the major technical achievements of the Apollo era or should we consider the view that the Apollo missions were the largest hoax in history? During the last few years I've read a great deal of literature about the lunar landing and the theories that they may have been faked. I have found that much of the evidence against the landings if full of holes the size of the moon itself. However it's not just up to me! Look at the evidence for and against and come to you own conclusions."

cranky Faked Moon Landings 2000 Jan 22
     ... Apollo program . conspiracy . hoaxes ...
"I am now convinced that we never landed on the Moon, and it is my hope, that I can make you question it yourself. One thing that I would like to call to attention, is that I am not an expert on anything that is written in this report. I don't know much about cameras, or non-atmospheric conditions, or physics or anything. I am just a senior in high school, and about the only thing that I know professionally is how to run movie projectors. I challenge all that read this page to find something wrong with it, and tell me about it, so I can more accurately disprove one of the most historical events of the century ... the landing on the Moon."

"... looks at the 'evidence' that the conspiracy theorists present to prove their notion that NASA faked the whole thing, while at the same time not actually being very good at it. Much of this 'evidence' is so transparently moronic you'll wonder just how anyone believes it."
