THE WEIRD SCULPTURE OUTSIDE THE OLYMPIC STADIUM
Our story begins with a bizarre, enormous sculpture erected directly next to the Olympic Stadium — the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
Even to the untrained eye, it looks suspicious — even disturbing. Fashioned out of blood-red steel bars, it obviously resembles a snake coiled around a pillar — possibly constricting and squeezing the life out of it:
This bizarre, towering sculpture was first announced, with computer-generated mockups of what it would look like, on March 31, 2010.
As you can see by reading the comments section in the following link, the announcement triggered a massive public backlash.
Almost everyone described it as a hideous, repulsive, ominous, even threatening eyesore:
ArcelorMittal Orbit Announcement
AN OBVIOUS BIBLICAL CONNECTION
We have a huge sculpture that could easily be interpreted as a stylized serpent coiled around a pillar — much like the Biblical idea of Satan, the serpent, coiled around the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
There are plenty of archaic pieces of art that depict this key Biblical scene in a very similar fashion as what we see in the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
The second illustration from the coin below may or may not be Biblical, but it nonetheless emphasizes that the coil winding around the pillar is clearly meant to be a serpent.
WHERE IS THE QUALITY CONTROL?
In order to fabricate the tallest sculpture in the history of the UK, millions of dollars could be spent just on advertising and marketing research alone.
Obviously, someone in a quality control committee would have immediately raised a red flag about how easily this sculpture could be misinterpreted — even if they were a first-year college student in marketing.
In fact, all anyone would have to do is show the design to their kid. Or anyone, for that matter! Two or three honest opinions would be enough to understand what the inevitable reaction would be.
The massive public outrage was totally predictable — even inevitable. Whoever voted on this final design obviously did not care about the repercussions.
THE UNVEILING ON MAY 14TH, 2012
The ArcelorMittal Orbit was announced to be a “standing and completed work of art” as of May 14th, 2012:
May 14th: Bizarre Sculpture Outside Olympic Stadium Unveiled
For the first time, attendees to the unveiling will be able to travel up to the viewing platform and enjoy a panoramic view of up to 20 miles, encompassing the entire Olympic Park and London’s skyline beyond.
At 114.5m, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is the UK’s tallest sculpture and stands 22 metres taller than New York City’s Statue of Liberty.
“It gives me great pride to see the ArcelorMittal Orbit standing not only as a completed work of public art but as aphysical symbol of the Olympic spirit,” comments Lakshmi N. Mittal, Chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal….
Notice the wording — a “physical symbol of the Olympic spirit.” Say what?!
Clearly this was not a random design. It was chosen for a very specific purpose — to physically symbolize the “spirit” behind the Olympic Games!
This sculpture has an uncanny resemblance to a classic Biblical depiction of Satan, the serpent — coiled around the Tree of Knowledge.
So yes — this is weird stuff, and you may think it is all ridiculous and meaningless — but there is overwhelming evidence that this cult exists, and they take these ritual symbols very seriously.
Staying in denial will not help you. Not anymore. We need to get to the bottom of this — and do something about it.
THE WORDING GETS EVEN MORE INTERESTING…
As our excerpt continues, the wording gets even more interesting — particularly if you consider that it may have been built to convey a symbolic message that was never overtly revealed.
May 14th: Bizarre Sculpture Outside Olympic Stadium Unveiled
ArcelorMittal Orbit unveiled to the world
Main construction of the London 2012 landmark is declared complete….
Boris Johnson: “This 114.5 metre-high attraction to trump rivals the world over is a calling card for investment in east London.
It is a symbol of prosperity and growth, backed by one of the world’s most astute business leaders, which delivers the strongest message that this part of London is open for business after decades of neglect.
“In addition to the £11billion plus investment that has taken place around the Olympics over the last four years, the ArcelorMittal Orbit will draw visitors to newly regenerated swathes of east London in perpetuity and haschanged our skyline and aspirations forever….
Andrew Altman, Chief Executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation, said:
“The ArcelorMittal Orbit will become one of London’s most spectacular visitor attractions and a stunning backdrop to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
“Not only will it offer differing views by day and night, but it will light up the East London skyline to become a beacon of the incredible transformation of this part of East London.”
THINK ABOUT THE WORDING
Apparently a stylized depiction of Satan and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is a “symbol of prosperity and growth” that “changes our aspirations forever.”
Lucifer is considered to be the “light-bearer” — and as we reported in Financial Tyranny,
this worldwide cult definitely appears to have a Luciferian belief system.
They do draw a clear distinction between Lucifer, who they think is the misunderstood good guy, and Satan — who they believe is only a myth.
The sculpture was designed and commissioned by “one of the world’s most astute business leaders.” This may not have attracted suspicion in the past, but after the LIBOR scandal and so many other data points, it definitely must be considered.
This stylized depiction of Satan and the Tree of Knowledge is said to “light up the East London skyline” and become a “beacon of the incredible transformation” of a “newly regenerated” London.
And of course, this undeniably serpent-like sculpture is also said to “trump rivals the world over.” To “trump” means to defeat — as in pulling out the “trump card” in a game, thereby allowing you to destroy your opponents.
LOOK AT THE COMPARISON PHOTOS
So who are the “rivals” that this “physical symbol of the Olympic spirit” can “trump” — i.e. defeat?
We are directly shown who they are — in the diagram featured within this very same article.
This first image is just the right half of what we see in the article. There are lots of tall buildings they could have chosen — but by calling it a “sculpture,” they could tie in these monuments — each with key ritual significance:
The Statue of Liberty is thought by many scholars to be a thinly-veiled symbol of Isis — the female aspect of Lucifer in this hidden religion.
This is illustrated by the beams of light coming off of her head, the torch that symbolizes the “sacred fire of antiquity,” i.e. the knowledge of the “Mysteries” — and the book, symbolizing the hidden teachings of the organization.
Notice that the next in line is Nelson’s Column — a pillar with clear similarities to a stylized Egyptian obelisk. Isis is the female symbol of Lucifer and the obelisk — a stylized phallus — is Lucifer’s male aspect, in the form of Osiris.
This male and female pairing of Luciferian symbols is then immediately followed by none other than Christ the Redeemer — who is below them, thereby implying that he has been “trumped”!
Given the wording that we just saw in the same article — a “physical symbol of the Olympic spirit” that can “trump rivalsthe world over” — it is interesting that they would have stuck in a picture of Jesus as a “rival,” being dwarfed by this serpent-like monument.
ABOUT THE “ANGEL OF THE NORTH”
The next sculpture beside Jesus in this lineup, the Angel of the North, has absolute ritual connotations as well. This steel sculpture was erected in 1998, in Newcastle, and is considered one of England’s 12 official icons.
First of all, notice the interesting choice of wording on the official Visit Newcastle website:
As you approach Tyneside either via car or train, you are greeted by the welcoming wide-open arms of The Angel of the North as it comes into view.
Visited by over 150,000 visitors a year, people come from all over the globe to witness the huge structure in all of its flesh and glory.
The Angel of the North emits a strength and power
that so many people enjoy on their first visit — and many come back and visit again….
The Angel of the North is one of England’s 12 official icons. It is reported that every second the structure is seen by more than one person travelling by. That’s over 90,000 people everyday, or nearing 34 million each year.
Being in this position makes it one of the most viewed artworks in the entire world.
A VERY EARTHBOUND “ANGEL”
The interesting thing here is that this “angel” is clearly built to look like a synthesis of man and machine. It is a towering, faceless human figure with airplane wings — all made out of steel.
Lucifer is considered to have “dominion” over the Earth in Biblical terms — and this “angel” is very earthly. Its wings are not typically angelic or birdlike — they are clearly mechanical, like a flying machine.
WHO IS THE “ANGEL OF THE NORTH” IN THE BIBLE?
In order to decipher the mystery of who the “Angel of the North” really is, let’s look in the Bible.
The answer is right here in the book of Isaiah:
, “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth. You who have weakened the nations!
13 But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north.
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’
Lucifer is the “Angel of the North.”
According to this website,
which we will discuss later, this is the only
passage in the Bible where Lucifer is directly mentioned. In the King James Version, “morning star” or “son of the dawn” translates as the word Lucifer.
Therefore, the idea that Lucifer’s throne is in “the recesses of the north” becomes a very important symbol for any practicing Luciferian — as they really don’t have much scripture to work with in the Bible.
The Angel of the North sculpture was clearly given airplane wings. Like the Bible quote about Lucifer, airplanes alsoascend above the heights of the clouds — in the course of a routine flight.
It is very interesting to reconsider the wording of the official Newcastle website — in how they wanted to reveal the Angel of the North in “all its flesh and glory” so that it “emits a strength and power.”
ANOTHER STRANGE THING…
On January 24, 2011, the Angel of the North was “vandalized” by a very advanced team — said to be “possibly ex-military” — and was literally transformed into a gigantic bat-winged creature.
It could, of course, just be Batman — but it also could be seen as a demonic figure with two horns and batlike wings.
Angel of the North Turned Into Bat-Winged Figure
Whoever is responsible, Gateshead woke up this morning to find that its iconic landmark, Angel of the North, had become Batman of the North – thanks to some new metal sheeting riveted to to the original statue.
“There must have been a team of them,” says Detective Inspector Roy Card.
“Highly organised, highly skilled. Possibly ex-military. Well-versed in the arts of stealth – vandals, in other words. Supervandals.
“They did the whole thing at night. No reports of lights on the hill. No reports of suspicious activity of any kind.
“They performed a complex industrial operation — then faded into the night like smoke. Like ninjas made out of smoke.”
The statue, which looks over the A1 and A167, is drawing record crowds as visitors rush to see the ‘Gateshead Batman’ before he is returned to his former self.
THINK ABOUT IT…
Notice the almost lustful wording about how these vandals “faded into the night like ninjas made of smoke.” These do not sound like the words of someone who is very upset about the “supervandals” did.
Who would have the time and energy to pay for something like this — a highly sophisticated, difficult and stealthy operation?
It would take a great deal of material, equipment, planning and cunning to rivet this much steel onto a structure this tall — in one night — and remain completely undetected in the process.
This obviously was designed to look homemade, due to the low quality of the steel — and it could indeed be nothing more than the work of wealthy and bored pranksters.
It may also have been the work of the Cabal — sending out a symbolic message about the greater nature of what this sculpture represents.
Yes, it’s definitely Batman — but it also could be a greater revealing about the true identity of this “Angel of the North.”
Another valuable point to consider is the outrageous amount of Illuminati symbolism we’ve seen in all three of the latest Batman films, as many others have documented — not to mention the highly suspicious mass shooting.
A RITUAL DATE MAY HAVE BEEN DELIBERATELY CHOSEN
It is also interesting that the Angel of the North was transformed into this bat-winged figure on the ancient Roman ritual holiday of Sementivae — January 24th.
There are only a handful of these “ritual dates” per year — and this happens to be one of the most important ones.
Sementivae is a ritual event that blends pagan and Christian themes together. It was intended to promote healthy crops and fertility, before the seeds were planted — hence the word “semen” in the name:
Sementivae — Roman Fertility Rite Beginning on January 24th
, also known as Feriae Sementivae
or Sementina dies
(in the country called Paganalia
), was aRoman
festival of sowing….
It was held in honor of Ceres
(the goddess of agriculture) and Tellus
The initial half of the event was a festival in honor of Tellus
which ran [beginning] from January 24
through January 26.
The festival honoring Ceres occurred one week later, starting February 2. The Sementina dies
were kept in seed-time at Rome for the purpose of praying for a good crop; it lasted only for one day, which was fixed by the pontiffs.
At the same time the Paganalia were observed
in the country.
Last but not least in our initial lineup of “rivals”, we have Michelangelo’s sculpture of David. This is intended to be a depiction of the Biblical King David — directly before he went into battle againt the giant Goliath:
Michelangelo’s Sculpture of the Biblical King David
Michelango sculpted the young David just prior to this face-off with the giant Goliath, sling over his shoulder, watching his enemy’s approach.
This story has influenced kings, politicians, slaves, citizens, artists and musicians for over 3000 years.
As was revealed in The Da Vinci Code, the Illuminati families trace their bloodlines back to King David — so comparing this classic, towering sculpture to the ArcelorMittal Orbit is ripe with ritual significance.
And that’s not all.
WHO DO THEY THINK MICHELANGELO’S DAVID REALLY SYMBOLIZES?
Another quote from the same page reveals an even deeper level of the mystery around David — from the Illuminist’s perspective.
Michelangelo’s Sculpture of the Biblical King David
In The World of Art,
Robert Payne wrote: “The David expressed a pagan
reliance on strength, cunning, and intelligence.
A muscular youth, with thick curling hair falling over the nape of his neck, with an expression of great power and refinement, he stands there like a god who has descended to earth in order to chastise the mighty and to tear kings from their thrones.
His brows are knit, his eyes are watchful, the youthful body stands in absolute composure, conscious of its own strength, its own power to accomplish whatever the intelligence demands. . . .
He is more Apollo than David,
and belongs more to Greece
than to the Renaissance
. Here Michelangelo stated once and for all, in a manner he would never surpass, the ideal inhabitant of the visionary earth.”
APOLLO = LUCIFER
Within this worldwide mystery cult, Apollo is commonly considered to be one of the forms that Lucifer took in Greek mythology.
This next quote is from a small “Angelfire” website that is trying to recruit people into the Luciferian faith — and it explains this Apollo connection clearly:
Just who Lucifer truly is is a question to be discussed in the chat room.
Many people see Lucifer in many ways; as a bringer of enlightenment, as a god of the air (or of the powers of the air), as a bringer of truth and knowledge, as a rebel, or as all of the above….
[Question:] Is this a Satanist room?
If you had read the questions above thoroughly, you would see that it clearly is not. The room’s founders do not see Lucifer and Satan as the same being.
However, Satanists of all persuasions are free to come in and chat. Personally we don’t care what anyone thinks of Lucifer or what other names he goes by; that’s the point of the room, anyway.
[Question:] What gods is Lucifer comparable to?
Lucifer, in the form most accepted now and apart from any comparison with Satan, has parallels in various world religions. He is generally considered both a god of light and a bringer of knowledge….
In Greek mythology, Lucifer is comparable to both Hermes and Apollo; Hermes because he was a messenger and a healer, and Apollo as a solar deity.
LET’S GET BACK TO OUR ORIGINAL COMPARISON DIAGRAM…
When we look at the full lineup of “rivals” that this “symbol of the Olympic spirit” is meant to “trump,” you almost can’t help but laugh.
They put the Great Pyramid of Giza — the ultimate object of worship and devotion for the Cabal — directly to left of the ArcelorMittal Orbit… as another “sculpture”!
Then on the left, you have the Eiffel Tower — yet another classic example of a stylized Egyptian obelisk. In this case it needed a wider base in order to maintain stability, but the obelisk comparison still holds.
The Cabal had a firm grip on the French government by the time the Eiffel Tower was constructed in 1889.
In short, with the sole exception of Christ the Redeemer — i.e. the opponent — every monument in the above lineup is a Luciferian symbol.
The obelisk — as seen in Nelson’s Column and the Eiffel Tower — is an Egyptian fertility symbol. It represents the severed phallus of Osiris, and a gateway to the spirit world.
THESE ARE NOT THE WORLD’S TALLEST STRUCTURES…
The ArcelorMittal Orbit may be the tallest sculpture in the UK, but the above comparison shot is misleading — as even the Eiffel Tower is no longer in the top ten of the tallest buildings.
The shortest of these is still well over 400 meters tall — besting the Eiffel Tower at 324 meters.
All the structures chosen in the ArcelorMittal Orbit lineup appear to have had a deeper purpose. They were not merely chosen as random examples of tall sculptures.
THE ARCELOR-MITTAL ORBIT IS ALSO A MITHRAIC MONUMENT
Before we even tackle the Olympic Stadium and the opening and closing ceremonies themselves, there is one more critical aspect of the ArcelorMittal Orbit that must be explored.
The Cabal has its roots in Freemasonry — which provided an effective cover of secrecy, and allowed the highest-ranking members to be potentially recruited into yet another, far more secretive group.
As we will see, a Masonic online group openly revealed that Freemasonry is largely based on the surviving remnants of a highly secretive Roman mystery cult — known as Mithraism.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit very strongly resembles the key Mitrhaic figurine known as Leontecephalus — the Lion [Leo] Headed [ceph.]
Both of these sculptures feature seven coils in the central serpent. Their position, slope angle and spacing on the pillar itself is also nearly identical.
MANY DIFFERENT VERSIONS SHOW THE SAME THING
This is not just a random coincidence. Many different depictions of the Leontocephalus have a serpent wrapped around the body in a very similar fashion — though perhaps with fewer total coils:
Anish Kapoor, a famous sculptor, was one of two artists credited with designing the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
May 14th: Bizarre Sculpture Outside Olympic Stadium Unveiled
It is very likely that the Mithraic coiled staircase and pillar was presented to Kapoor from the beginning as a design motif, perhaps by his co-designer Cecil Balmond — and he then was asked to incorporate that idea into his overall concept.
THE “CARNAVAL” WEBSITE REVEALS ITS MASONIC ORIGINS
Carnaval is one key website we will be looking at for quotes on Mithraism. Carnaval is a classic term for a decadent festival celebration of drinking, dancing and sexual (Carnal) promiscuity.
The website reveals that many cultures have a form of the Carnaval celebration — much like Mardi Gras. All these Carnavals apparently can be traced back to ancient Pagan fertility rituals.
On the Carnaval page dedicated most directly to Freemasonry, they openly reveal that their website is written by the San Francisco Mission Masonic Lodge — and they ask you to join them:
Carnaval Admits It is Masonic
Dig deep in the site and you will find it is published from the San Francisco Mission District in California USA, where the Mission Masonic Lodge is enjoying growth not seen for many decades.
THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MASONRY AND MITHRAISM
Now that we know that Carnaval is a Masonic website, we can see that they are certainly capable of speaking about the historic roots of Freemasonry from an informed, insider perspective.
Here is what they said:
Masonry / Mithraism Connection
Freemasonry came out of Scotland as revamped Mithraism, spurred by the influx of the outlawed Knights Templar.
It has been suggested that Mithraism could have survived indefinitely in independent Scotland, where there was an affinity for Roman practices as well as a fierce independence.
Masonry is a complex fraternal organization with many similarities to Mithraism, which came out of Scotland in the late 17th century.
It is possible that surviving cults of Mithraism in Scotland became associated with the craft of masonry, as well as liberated members of the Knights Templar to create the modern form of Masonry, which has changed little over the centuries.
Masonry shares stories with the Knights Templar, who are said to have successfully sought refuge when persecuted by King Philip of France and Pope Clement early in the 14th century.
LET’S LEARN MORE ABOUT MITHRAISM
Now that Masonic insiders have revealed that their religion is deeply rooted in Mithraism, it is obviously very important to find out as much as we can about this ancient mystery cult.
In this next quote from the Mithras page on Carnaval, we learn much more:
Carnaval on Mithraism
At a time when Christianity was only one of several foreign Eastern cults struggling for recognition in Rome, the hierarchal organization, religious dualism, and dogmatic moral teaching of Mithraism set it apart from other sects — creating a stability previously unknown in Roman paganism.
The cult’s emphasis on truth, honor, courage, and personal discipline had a special appeal to the spiritually ambitious among soldiers, merchants and noblemen.
The Roman emperors early on formally announced their alliance with the sun and emphasized their likeness to Mithras, god of its divine light.
Mithras was also unified with the sun-god Helios, and became known as ‘The Great God Helios-Mithras’….
Animal sacrifices, mostly of birds, were also conducted in the Mithraeums….
Uh-oh. Animal sacrifices certainly don’t fit in with most people’s ideas of an acceptable religious practice — at least in modern times.
The idea that they “mostly” do birds isn’t very comforting either — considering it leaves room for everything else.
If “ambitious” members can become comfortable with animal sacrifices, that could serve as a “gateway drug” to see that human sacrifices may have “spiritual value” as well.
ARCHEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE USED TO REBUILD THE STORYLINE
Now we will read from another website that does not openly profess to have any insider information — but nonetheless appears to have at least been tipped off about secret knowledge.
In this case, we find out that much of what we know about Mithraism in the open world comes from archeological evidence that must be deciphered and interpreted.
When we try to understand what Mithraism was about, we are faced right at the beginning with a problem: Mithraism was a mystery religion.
Mystery religions by definition keep secrets. Because of this we aren’t going to find an ancient text that explains it all for us.
We will have to look other places for our information.
One of the good things about Mithraism, from our point of view, is that Mithraic temples, called mithraea (singular mithraeum), were almost all underground.
When Mithraism was no longer practiced in a given mithraeum, it was generally just walled off and built over.
This means that in some cases we have virtually completely intact mithraea, with statues and inscriptions right where the Mithraic initiates left them.
Even in places where we aren’t so fortunate, we nonetheless have large amounts of material preserved for us….
MITHRAEUMS HAD SMALL, TIGHTLY-KNIT CONGREGATIONS
As our quote goes on, we find out that only a small number of people would meet in the Mithraea:
The first thing about the mithraea is their architecture. This tells us a lot right away. Mithraea are quite small,the largest found so far being 23 meters long (Clauss, p. 43).
On average, they would have fit about thirty worshippers. This is surely a significant fact. Mithraists in each “congregation” would have known each other personally….
THE “TAUROCTONY” — OR RITUAL ANIMAL SACRIFICE OF THE BULL
The ritual killing of the bull plays a key role in the Mithraic mysteries, as we read here:
The invariant element in mithraea was a statue or relief of Mithras killing a bull, called the “tauroctony.”
This was placed at the end of the mithraeum opposite the door, and was clearly meant to be the focus of the temple.
From both its everpresence and the centrality of its location, the tauroctony is obviously an expression of themost important mystery of the cult….
Scholars such as Graham Hancock assert that the killing of the bull symbolically represents the end of the Age of Taurus and the transition into the Age of Aries.
Both of the websites we are exploring on Mithraism present this connection as well — indicating it was first made by David Ulasney.
A KEY SYMBOL OF THE EXPECTED TRANSITION IN 2012
Both websites also say this Mithraic symbol can refer to any time that one Age of the Zodiac transitions into another. Based on several interconnecting data points, we are now about to shift from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius.
Here is the key line that reveals this insider Mithraic belief on the Carnaval site:
Ironically, the religion of Mithras historically has performed the role of hand-maiden to the birth of the age of Pisces and the monotheism of Christianity and Islamic religions, which distinguish the first two millenniums after Jesus Christ.
It might yet perform this role again as we move tenuously into the next great age of Aquarius….
As I documented in The Source Field Investigations, several pieces of compelling evidence set this transition at the end of this year, 2012.
This makes it all the more interesting that the Olympics were held in London this same year. Were they hoping to be the “hand-maidens to the birth… of the great Age of Aquarius”?
What might they hope to achieve as this New Age begins?
THE LEONTOCEPHALUS — AND “AHRIMAN”
Finally, we get back around to the Mithraic sculpture that has an uncanny resemblance to the ArcelorMittal Orbit — namely the Leontocephalus.
The third most important image in the mithraea goes by the delightful name of the “leontocephalous,” or the “leontocephalic deity.”
This just means “the lion-headed one,” and that’s exactly what he is — a man with the head of a lion. There is usually a snake wrapped around him.
The other elements of this image vary, but two sets of wings (that is, four wings) and a set of keys are common.
In only one case do we have a name for him, Arimanius. This is found on the base of a statue of him from York in England.
There are, however, also a number of inscriptions to “the god Arimanius” without images….
AHRIMAN IS SATAN — IN THE ZOROASTRIAN TRADITION
This jumped out at me right away, due to how much I’ve studied the Zoroastrian traditions. In Zoroastrianism, the equivalent of Satan is named Ahriman.
This same website reveals the connection a few pages later on:
If one were to devise a Gnostic religion based in part on Zoroastrianism, the obvious choice would beAhriman, the evil spirit/god of that religion.
It is exactly Ahriman whom we see in the mithraea, under the name “Ariomanus,” the lion-headed god.
AN UNDENIABLY SATANIC MONUMENT
The ArcelorMittal Orbit just got even more sinister. The connection to Satan grows stronger and stronger the more we explore it.
Some of the surviving images of the Leontocephalus are even sculpted with cloven hooves for feet:
THIS IS NOT A JOKE
We already have a compelling set of symbols to make a case — but so far we haven’t begun to survey the evidence most people have been using to conclude that the London Olympics ceremonies were “a Satanic Illuminati ritual.”
So many people came to believe this that it actually reached the front page of Digg — a site tracking the most popular stories and trends on the Internet — as of August 6th:
Nonetheless, many of the symbols were extremely blatant. Humor is often used as a way for people to cope with disturbing information.
