Prophet Yahweh: performance artist, or ... 

This Prophet Yahweh fellow who seemed to have "summoned" anomalous objects in the sky for a Las Vegas ABC affiliate by praying for a sighting. He has a Yahoo! group to which he sends a whole lot of email, which I read so you don't have to. Notable narratives have included a story of a financial donor whose $750,000 donation ended up being bogus, but the voice that calls himself YAHWEH had told him to "watch out". In my opinion, the story fits the description of a Nigerian scam. Prophet Yahweh has also presented basic knowledge about the New Testament (for instance that the Gospels were not written by eyewitnesses and that Matthew's author is anonymous) as earth-shattering proof that the Gospels are "forgeries".

Yesterday, Prophet Yahweh, born Ramon Watkins, revealed to his list further proof that the Gospels are forgeries: "encrypted" in the Gospels are hints that Jesus was a homosexual pedophile - to Prophet Yahweh, this indicates that the leaders of Christianity are "Satanic" - that if one understands "the Gospels suggest that the Jesus was a child molesting homosexual, then you'll know why his representatives, who are sworn to "follow" his "example" and walk in his "steps" are doing the exact same things today!"

The "encryption" is "spread ... out into different chapters [so] only the enlightened mind, with higher-level analytical abilities, would be able to ... see clearly the sexual perverted views attributed to our Messiah." Among the hints Prophet Yahweh sees "spread out",

I want to bring to your attention what appears to be an innocent statement made concerning the Christian Jesus in the Gospel of John chapter 13, verse 1. It states:

1. "...having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them until the end."

Now, compare this statement with verses 34-35 of the same chapter. It states:

34. "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

35. "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

... In Mark 14:51-52 it states:

51. And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:

52. And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

Now, what kind of love is it that would make a young man or boy not flee like everyone else when the Roman's came? It had to be more powerful than the love Jesus' disciples had for him. That's for sure!

Here's the kicker though, his series of emails on this topic ended with photographic proof,

I think we can conclude with certainty that Prophet Yahweh either has a few screws loose or is a fantastic performance artist.
