John Frum
#1
John Frum
John Frum cult(s) is based on a American soldier(s) who brought crates of goodies in WW2 to the people living on remote Pacific islands. People there still await for him to return, but what kind of puzzles me is what he supposedly taught the people there, and that is to throw away their money and get rid of the cattle, so they are basically just lying around all day not doing anything.

Now, if John Frum really is based on a actual G.I. it is hardly likely that he would tell people to throw their money and live in poverty, so the logical conclusion is that they made up those teachings.

But why would they make this hoax? How did they come to being convinced that Frum told them to be without money and cattle?
Perhaps because they genuinely don't like money, since it is a very recent concept for them, introduced by missionaries, as they probably don't like cattle, so they just put in things they like.

Here's the video



teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"
