The Saturni and the Value of Lies -Disinformation

Originally published July 6, 2013 via disinfo.com

Trudging through the internet, I came upon one of the wackiest conspiracy theories I’ve ever seen at thesaturni.com:

While we’ve been mindlessly cycling through work and play, a race of Archon-like beings from Saturn has been slowly devouring our world a piece at a time.  The Saturni were originally bodiless astral entities, known to us as gods and devils, who descended into the material world as human beings.  But something went terribly wrong (as it usually should), and they became enamored with their new-found appetites.  You can imagine them as cosmic cannibals, pretending to be humans, who will not be sated until every resource on the earth has been swallowed.  “That guy stealing a parking space from you?  A closet Saturnus.  Intolerant bigots, greedy fat cats, political pundits, politicians?  Yep.  The fact is, the single greatest power the Saturni possess is their ability to appear exactly like every single person you don’t like.”

The website has been created and maintained by the followers of A. P. Bowman, who has “attained quasi-immortal status, conferred on him by one of the primordial Introim, the forebears and absolute enemies of the Saturni.”  There are numerous conflicting accounts of Bowman to be found throughout the site, placing him in the United Kingdom in the 17th century, Paris in 1945, and New Orleans in the 1970s.  I was immediately reminded of the contradictory stories told by members of the Church of the SubGenius regarding their prophet, J. R. “Bob” Dobbs (including numerous incompatible versions of his life as well as his death).
