    Default Apocalypse Now (Actually, it will take place in May.)

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/16/wo...rssnyt&emc=rss
    About 30 members of an eccentric Christian sect have retreated to a cave on a snowy hillside outside Nikolskoye in central Russia, where they have been in a standoff with the police. They took to the cave about a week ago and say they will stay underground until the apocalypse they expect in May. Attempts by the police to coax them out or at least get them to release the children with them have been met with threats to blow themselves up. The sect’s 43-year-old leader preaches apocalyptic doom and reportedly sleeps in a coffin.

    The sect, which calls itself "The True Russian Orthodox Church," was formed by one Father Pyotr, a 43-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic. He is believed to have ordered his followers underground last week, declining, however, to join them in the snow-covered cave. Father Pyotr is currently in police custody.

    The cave in Penza was discovered after the daughter of one of the missing cult members complained to the local prosecutor, Russian media said. Police then arrested Kuznetsov - who led investigators to the entrance. When they tried to approach together with another priest gunshots were fired in the air, NTV reported.
    They said they'll await for the apocalypse in that cave; I wonder why they do not wait for it normally. In the end, if something like that happens, the result would be the same regardless you are in a cave, or not, wouldn't it? It's a bit sad when things like these happen.

    I cannot belive that something that outrageous is taking place...

    If it's the end of the WORLD you will die cave or no cave...

    What do they hope to accomplish by spending the next *Checks calender* SIX MONTHS in a cave...

    And the priest sleeps in a coffin! WTF!

    I can't even convey a proper thought right now...

    I hope the world does come to an end and that failed priest dies first...

    I'm mad!

    I hope they are able to resolve this before the date in question because once the leader realizes it isn't going to happen he'll just sacrifice everyone else.

    It will just end like that gilligan's Island episode, except they will all still be in the cave when the meteor hits.

    Except I somehow doubt they'd be enlightened even if they did manage to leave the cave.

    Let's just hope it doesn't turn into something like Waco.

    Hell, this is Russia. We're talking the country where pumping poison gas into an crowded theater is considered a valid tactic to deal with a hostage situation. I would be surprised if this didn't end with somebody dead.

    And why will they kill themselves if any tries to pull em out of the cave? I mean..Arent they dead no matter what happens..."lets go inside this cave to survive Apocalypse, and if any tries to get us...lets blow ourselves up" "yeah thats a good idea great leader who suffers from schizophrenia..."

    And also the country that thought that a shot-out between the "negotiators" and the kidnappers in Beslan would solve the hostage´s situation. I will be surprised too, Saizou, if this situation doesn´t end with the whole hostages dead.
