John Frum
RE: John Frum
(December 28, 2020 at 2:51 pm)Fake Messiah Wrote: 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

Could've been worse, they could have decided on Phil the Greek as their god.
As a species, we are fucked. To the next generation, I offer my inadequate apologies.
