Burning Man: A soaked Saturday in Black Rock City (www.rgj.com)

73,000 people trapped in mud, burns cancelled at Burning Man. Maybe God had enough of the paganism?

Gluey mud makes travel in Black Rock City near impossible…

What do you think?

I remember reading somewhere that the final ceremony of the festival is supposedly inspired by the Druidic Wicker man rite. Surprisingly dark stuff for an event that seems so lighthearted and innocent.

Innocent?! It is dayslong debauchery culminated by a a fire sacrifice. The depraved ancient world could hardly do worse.

When I first heard of Burning man, it was in a video I saw a few years ago. I didn’t watch the whole thing because it was so long and the parts I saw were only showcasing art installations and some pretty creative vehicles. At the time it seemed innocent enough to me, not much worse than a large concert.

Now, when I know many more things about the occult and ancient religions and rites, it looks like a modernised and debatably more subtle Wicker man rite. And the name Black Rock City probably refers to the company that owns practically everything and the black cube of Saturn. It’s not so innocent now when I know about these things.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, truly.

I always thought that looked like the stupidest, most unpleasant place to be.

God gives the poor man’s Bohemian Grove a foretaste of the coming great chastisement.

You know they arrested/restrained a guy a couple of Mans ago who was trying to get to the fire “because there was people in there” he could hear them “screaming”
