Watchwoman: Like I’ve said before and I’m sure I’ll repeat it many times over, I don’t have to make stuff up.  People are so goofy and weird, I get more than enough to keep this blog titillating, edgy and mysterious enough to peruse! ▬ Donna Calvin

 


HEAVEN’S GATE WEB SITE – STILL ACTIVE FOR 15 YEARS

SAN DIEGO (CBS Las Vegas) –  Some websites, once popular, eventually fade into obscurity and become what are known as “ghost sites.” Though left untouched and unedited for extensive amounts of time, these sites continue to exist like time capsules buried deep in the Internet.

Heaven’s Gate has one such website.

The Heaven’s Gate cult gained notoriety in the late 1990s with its belief that Earth was about to be sanitized – or as they phrased it, “recycled” – and all life at the time would be wiped out to make way for a new dawn of human civilization.

The cult was ahead of the curve in the sense that they used the Internet, then in its infancy, to relay its message. However, they committed mass suicide in March 1997 with the arrival of the Hale-Bopp Comet, which they believed was the sign of the apocalypse.

The cult’s website, HeavensGate.com, hasn’t been updated since then.

Its most recent page, entitled “’Away Team’ Returns to Level Above Human in Distant Space,” states that, “[b]y the time you receive this, we’ll be gone – several dozen of us …  we have now exited the bodies that we were wearing for our earthly task … task completed.”

However, long after the suicides, the site is still actively maintained. The domain name and the server have been renewed every year since 1997 by an unknown party acting under a cloak of anonymity.

The WHOIS records show that all contact information is kept private. And when called, the information phone number listed greets callers with an error message.

“Please note this voicemail box is not monitored,” it states.

There is also an email address listed, which serves as an alias for the email address on the site itself.

As for the upcoming date of Dec. 21, 2012, a day believed by many to be the beginning of the end for humanity, the Telah Foundation is not worried.

“Our own opinion is that it is a bunch of nonsense,” the representative said. “The world will still be here on December 22.”
