Elves make com­pro­mise with Road Ad­min­is­tra­tion

Posted by doctore0 on March 19, 2015

My crazy country :)

A large and un­usual rock will be moved to­day to make way for a new road in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Álf­tanes, close to Reyk­javík. An an­nounce­ment from the Ice­landic Road Ad­min­is­tra­tion states that the rock will be placed by the side of the road close to sim­i­lar rock for­ma­tions.

“A pact be­tween elves and men,” ex­plains clair­voy­ant Ragn­hildur Jóns­dót­tir who wrote to the Mayor of Garðabær on be­half of the elves in 2012.
A con­tro­ver­sial road pro­ject

Mov­ing the rock has been some­what con­tro­ver­sial and the new place­ment of the rock is no co­in­ci­dence. In 2013 the story of this rock, be­lieved to be the leg­endary Ófeigskirkja- an elf church- made in­ter­na­tional news.
Galadriel, the Lady of Lórien as she appears in Peter Jackson’s film version of Tolkien’s …

“Elf ad­vo­cates have joined forces with en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists to urge the Ice­landic Road and Coastal Com­mis­sion and lo­cal au­thor­i­ties to aban­don a high­way pro­ject build­ing a di­rect route from the Alf­tanes penin­sula, where the pres­i­dent has a home, to the Reyk­javik sub­urb of Gard­abær. They fear dis­turb­ing elf habi­tat and claim the area is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant be­cause it con­tains an elf church,” wrote the As­so­ci­ated Press at the time.

400 Men Cut Off Their Testicles to ‘Get Closer to God’

Posted by doctore0 on March 4, 2015

More on this madness/religion…

Indian religious “guru” Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been accused of persuading 400 of his estimated 50 million followers worldwide to cut off their own testicles to “bring them closer to God.” The incident took place in 2000 at a hospital run by the 47-year-old multi-millionaire spiritual leader in India, but has only recently come to light due to the victims’ fear of retribution from Ram Rahim’s followers, or fear of being made social outcasts if they came forward with their stories. We take a look at the investigation into the alleged manipulation, in this Lip News clip with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel.

Astrology could help take pressure off NHS doctors claims Conservative MP

Posted by doctore0 on February 25, 2015

Wow some serious stupid in progress..

fail2David Tredinnick says that astrology and complementary medicine could help healthcare and opponents are ‘racially prejudiced’

A Conservative MP has claimed that astrology could have “a role to play in healthcare”.

David Tredinnick said astrology, along with complementary medicine, could take pressure off NHS doctors, but acknowledged that any attempt to spend taxpayers’ money on consulting the stars would cause “a huge row”.

He criticised the BBC and TV scientist Professor Brian Cox for taking a “dismissive” approach to astrology, and accused opponents of being “racially prejudiced”.

The MP for Bosworth, in Leicestershire, who is a Capricorn and in 2010 paid back £755 he had claimed in expenses for software that used astrology to diagnose medical conditions, told Astrological Journal: “I do believe that astrology and complementary medicine would help take the huge pressure off doctors.

“Ninety per cent of pregnant French women use homeopathy. Astrology is a useful diagnostic tool enabling us to see strengths and weaknesses via the birth chart.

“And, yes, I have helped fellow MPs. I do foresee that one day astrology will have a role to play in healthcare.”

Police to lift lid on murky world of bogus faith healers who promise cures for huge sums of money

Posted by doctore0 on September 15, 2014

… all faith healers are bogus!

godscamPolice hope to lift the lid on the murky world of ‘faith healers’ who promise cures for everything from cancer to marriage breakdown – for huge sums of money.

A team of officers has been put together to investigate the scale of the fraud in the city for the first time.

The Leicester Mercury is aware of a number of cases of people handing over tens of thousands of pounds to criminals who then say meaningless prayers or perform rituals for them.

An unknown number of tricksters are operating in the city, advertising in foreign language newspapers or by putting business cards through letterboxes or leaving the on car windscreens.

Many claim to be able to use prayer to lift curses, heal broken marriages and solve financial problems.

Others say they can cure illnesses including cancer and HIV.

Inspector Ben Gillard, commander of Leicester’s Spinney Hill Park police station, said the team needed the community’s help to trace the perpetrators.

Insp Gillard said: “People are being exploited and handing over large sums of money to these people.

“We want to work with the faith community leaders and other people in the community because this is not solely a police issue.
