Russian Muslim Sect Kept Children Underground

The warning signs of psychosis were evident in the sect's leader 50 years ago, but that was in the 60s. However whether this was a bad acid trip or frank psychosis mis-identified as "divine inspiration" is a moot point. This is what can happen when religious ideals are left unchallenged.

"Mr Sattarov, 83, declared himself an Islamic prophet in the mid-1960s after interpreting sparks from a trolleybus cable as a divine light from God."

Invisibility and nothingness look an awful lot alike.

Indeed. How many times have you multiple facepalmed at the "oh, you must respect my beliefs" horseshit? - and how the idiots can't seem to grasp that their crackpot beliefs in no way entitle them to anything other than derision and/or mockery.

Stop the Holy See men!

Wow, some of those kids had gone more than a decade without going out in the sun. I bet they were healthy.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
