Is crazy conspiracy theories allowed here?

Link above is an Evangelist group that claims nearly everything is the work of Satan. Claims some illuminati/zionist/masonry theories too.

Why do some people buy into this? Are people just that desperate to blame some evil entity? Benign harmless stuff like this just confuses the hell out of me.

>A religious group believes all the stuff they don't like is the work of the adversarial force from their religion

Shocking.

>Why do some people buy into this? Are people just that desperate to blame some evil entity?


Well, when you look at the concept of a religion… which is really a group of people who believe certain things and share certain views and advocate certain actions, if you strip out the metaphysical component… then you don't require a God, but you always require a Devil. Humans by our nature are more driven to unite against something than for something… not because we're mean or violent or some shit, it's just survival behavior. It's more important to work together because some big predator is nosing around where you live than it is to get together because some guy wants to build a really big fire. ("Why do that? I can make fire, and have it to myself!") So any group that functions like a religion requires a Devil to blame all their woes on and define yourself through the struggle against them, even if the struggle consists of nothing but the occasional angry rant.

>Why do some people buy into this?

‘The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory, is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory.

The truth is far more frightening - Nobody is in control.

The world is rudderless.’

This is a wonderful summary of religion and why it is such a big component of humanity. Well done!

Indeed, people tend to believe that there's an enemy out there, and will search for a name to put on it. If that enemy is disproven - satan is the grand example because, just as there's no solid proof for his existence, there's no solid proof against, so he can be a perennial enemy - people are more fearful than ever. The enemy isn't vanquished, or no longer a threat. Just, "If they're not my enemy, who is?"

In the USA at various times, the common enemy - with varying degrees of any real threat - has been, among others: Catholics, Protestants, Irish, Chinese, Japanese, blacks, Arabs, and "Islamic terrorists" (the latter, a blanket term so vague that, shortly after 9/11, some folks were attacking Seikh taxi drivers, neither knowing nor likely caring that Seikhs aren't Muslims.)

There are, incidentally, a handful of scattered Christians out there who don't believe in satan– or in original sin at all. It's an odd belief system, to be sure, and one most Christians would denounce, but it exists. I haven't seen much of it online, but I've spoken with a few of them.

Even funnier are some of the comments on the linked vid, like this one: "There is a very great deal of work being done to expose MK Ultra mind control on pop stars, including satanic ritual abuse, in order to shatter the core personality into multiples. The victim (in this case Katy Perry) would then have a handler (much being posted that Russel Brand was for a time Katy Perry's handler, while Jay-Z continues to be Beyonce's)."

I'll refrain from making a tongue-in-cheek crack about how the "controlled" are female and their "handlers" are male.

Take a look at this douchefuck.

Now why am I posting this (now-deleted) journal? Because of what this asshole did to Kadath. Quoting Kad’s Twitter:

>Apparently this guy has done this before. Shouts on his FA page show stalking behaviour. His DA is deactivated. His older FA suspended. Dude asked for a commission, went through 20+ emails, worked out a price and details - and then he's like 'oh I'm broke. Commission me?' He tried to get me to commission him, so he could use the money to commission me (WTF). Then he started comparing my prices to others'. Then he started talking smack about other artists that charge more than I do. At this point I told him I would not work with him. He started prodding me on my galleries. Then emailed me asking me to give him my digital signature for a get well card for a friend of his. I don't even know this person. They're not following me. Sure I feel bad for their situation, but the guy acts shady and wants my signature? He also asks Kaylii for her signature, and she doesn't even know this guy at all. Never talked to him. So finally he pokes me again, and this happens. Notice I directly quote him and his response is to reverse it on me. [https://twitter.com/UnknownKadath/status/560226205560233984] Artists, beware of Wyldfire. His DA account is deactivated. His Wyldfire7 FA page is suspended. His Wyldfire page has similar drama on it. I normally don't publicly call out stuff like this, but this guy pushed my patience to its limits. Considering his FA page has similar stalking/shady bullshit mentions on it from other ppl (plus age warnings?) I would avoid at all costs. So yeah, sorry for the rant and screencap drama. I normally try to keep things professional, but this guy is trouble & ppl deserve to know.


I like Kadath. I like his art. Neither he nor any other artist deserves what this Wyldfire dickface did to him.

…ouch, I, uh, I didn't even SEE that! Geez, not what I meant.

Addlesee did actually ditch FA, quite a while before his death. He threatened to do so many times, but he finally actually quit coming back. I was really shocked, I'd never seen any drama-whore who threatened to leave actually…go somewhere else…

No, I didn't suddenly turn into a jerk. I don't like it when even the biggest assholes die. Besides, I wish he'd kept living and providing us with funny shit. I wanted to see more of him in his "Mid-Pro Water-Weight Champeenship Warehouse Wrestling Federation of Georgia" roles.

I think Wyldfire's idea of leaving FA is just not posting any more of his own artwork. Looking at his favorites - which update frequently - shows he's still very much active.

I guess by Adiago's logic Las Lindas and UberQuest are uncanny valley and thus nobody likes them.

That's the beauty of art - there is no 'right' way to do it because art can be anything.

That being said, sure there is some anatomical logic that peeps should learn as far as basic structure goes. However, for something like 'furries' being a fantasy thing - they can honestly look however your imagination wants.

I like to think with furries it just depends on ratio - some draw humanoids with animal features and vice versa.

If she would have just said 'this is my preference' rather then 'this is wrong, this way is right!' it wouldn't have been an issue.

I feel like this is less of a tutorial to help people and more "See! I know what I'm talking about with art!" bit.

The most important tip that an artist should give if someone asks for help with art is; "Do more figure drawings, forget style because if you can't draw a proportional and anatomically correct human body your "style" isn't taking you anywhere."

What's the design on yours? Might pitch in if it isn't too out there. I give leeway to stuff like digimon but still. Some things just look better on fabric instead of fur.

Not sure where else to post this, might as well put it here.

According to Karno (who was close associate of our favorite Jack Kirby wannabe), Steven died from diabetes complications.

I'm….I'm not sure what to say really. I was on the old Freehaven website when drama around this guy was going down, he seemed like a genuinely mentally challenged fellow with delusions of grandeur and persecution complex, but now that he's apparently gone, I'm actually speechless.

If it's true, God-speed you crazy bastard. God-speed.

Resolved and I didn't even have to bring the artillery. It was actually pretty amusing seeing the look on the guy's face when he looked at my deposit slip then my account and couldn't put two and two together(why I was being charged that is).
