Is Burning Man to Blame for the Increase in American Teen STD Cases?

Did you know there is a place in Las Vegas you can go to and burn Bibles while making sex sessions with random women dressed up like the Easter Bunny and little bubble bees? Has anyone told you that you can be apart of a week long journey of hazy drug male sin docking, with married men? Anyone ever tell you about a group of meth laced lollipop lickers, dancing to Satanic drum beats, while semen demons and devil whores dance in sexual gyrations? Have you ever heard of stories about a fiery idol being burned to celebrate deviancy against God? If so, you most likely are hearing the horrid tales of a festival called “Burning Man”, which is a annually held music festival to celebrate everything anti-American and anti-morals.


What is Burning Man?
Burning Man is an annual, week long drug slinger festival sponsored by Hot Topic, that is held in the Blackhole Desert in the northern part of Las Vegas. Burning Man is a week long festival of book burning, anti-God worship and baby eating babble that only Satan himself would be able to fondle himself over.

At each party, the party goers are encouraged to create their own false idols which they will later on burn and dance around as they joyfully sin in hopes to arouse Satan in a erotic fantasy of orgasms.

Who Goes to Burning Man?
Besides the copious amounts of fecal flinging, sex addicted homosexuals, the clown dressed midgets and bath salt sniffing hippies, you can see a wide variety of God hating sinners. Burning man usually consists of around 122,500 to 182,805 people looking to reenact scenes that would make a Roman bath house look like the softest form of downloadable .avi porn on the internet.

The whore women are asked to weird the most outlandish outfits and to make sure that woman have their milk sacks exposed or to at least have moist camel hump noticeable in the tight shorts. It is very common to see women in Old Navy hot pants, Hot Topic fish nets and cut up Dirty Shirty bosom tops with words like “My Dad Says I’m Cute” or “I Always Get Backstage” smeared across them. Men are told to dress up like something you would see out of a nightmarish San Fransisco leather parade and that you can show bare chest only if you have a sculptured solid body.

Pretty much if you asked a gps to look for a group of ugly people who play with necromantic black magic and love to partake in a oily interracial sex orgy, it would point you right to this desert festival of gluttonous fornication.


What Goes on at Burning Man?
What the immature amounts of female nudity and exposed male sin snakes isn’t enough? Or how about the naked tug of war games or the false idol constructions? Or to top it off, how about large amounts of gay men tip toeing in the desert, hammering out male on male mouth sex acts, while hippies cheer them on and take photos to upload to their Twitter accounts.

Have you every heard of a “STD Party”? If not, a STD Party is were groups of disease infested party goers, like our Burning Man friends here and they sign up on a list stating which STD they have. Once on the list, they are able to look at others on the list and see which type of STD they want to swap. Once they pick out their fancy, they met up in a what they call “Caring Tent” and partake in a sandy act of sexual transfusion and Satanic pleasures.

Parties like these are what caused the black plague in England. Unmoral, non-God loving drunks would have multiple sex insertion sessions with unwashed privates parts from multiple people and would spread sickness across the lands. If we don’t stop this, America will be facing the same low t-cell count destiny.


If the STD parties don’t tickle your penile or baby hole fancy, you can always join in on the animal sacrifices or take a demonic journey in the acid trip sweat rooms.

Dancing to “drummed and based” music is also a very popular event. So if you’re a maniac for dancing under the Devil’s desert disco ball, you will have a place to call home.

So if you want to ride first class on hell’s 747 or have your body riddled with illnesses, hop in your car and drink from the devil’s pleasure cup. If you want to be bless with eternal life then band with us and say no to this false paradise of gang banging hussies and phallic exposing maestros.

        AIDS did indeed come from Africa, as we have discovered in our Biblical Science Institute 5 years ago.

        It started with the colored savages performing anal and oral sex with great apes, leading to the cross-combination of human and ape viruses, creating the deadly AIDS virus.

        The infected monkey-raping homosexual Africans then spread AIDS to America at around the same time they spread gay culture to San Francisco. See the connection?

          This article is hilarious. It has no correct facts in there. The language and the way its used in this article is abusive and manipulative. Geared toward making people who are uniformed or vaguely informed, think a certain way. This festival is not for the conservative christian. This festival is for only certain God warriors. I know of a Christian camp here and they are very friendly and understanding. They spread the Gospel in a “dark” place and thats not for every God lover. We are told to stand against but times call for forward progression as well.
          BUT when I read this at first I laughed at its misguided words. I thought for sure it was a burner just being funny but i looked up and no… its on a real website. I feel its too bad its on a Christian website cuz “christians” have a tuff time making it in the first place, no need to make us seem more ignorant. But its ok cuz things work out thanks to God.

          God bless you all

And wow really your trying to scare people from coming by telling them there are STD swapping tents…..go there….i never once saw anything like that. But maybe dont because jesus will see you and send you to hell. Like jesus and hell exist you losers. What a waste of human, lying flesh you are….preach your lies and try and scare people. you will go to “hell” for making up such nonsense.

            I’ve just read this and feel like this writer and the entire staff of this site should be invited to the Burn next year. Maybe it will help with the demons they clearly have regarding self and sexual expression.

            OMG…. This is the most ignorant and yet funny thing I have read about Burning Man, and sooooo misinformed. Only around 50,000 people attend, it is not in Las Vegas, but the Northern part of Nevada close to Reno, plus animals aren’t even allowed on the playa, so how could there be any sacrificing. This is a festival of art, and so much more. This obsessed, misinformed, heretic is just talking out of his ass, and it is people like him that give that are the problem in this world. I send him blessings of enlightenment, and laugh at his sickness….. You should really know what you are talking about before you open your mouth and look so foolish.

            There can be no such thing as a “Biblical Science Institute”.

If that is satan worship then you’d have to say the fourth of july is satanic worship too. You guys are using completely misleading words and making it sound like something different than it is. It doesn’t have anything to do with satan worship, and people dont eat babies. A lot of people there are more spiritual than most of you phony, propaganda spilling, hipocritical, hate spewing ass holes. Why do christians continue to scare so many people into believing. You say god loves everyone, but he will send you to hell if you dont believe, even though he knows everything that’ll happen. That’s not love, and thats not the god that i know. You guys crack me up

          How uneducated are you, do you yourself walk upright, or do your knuckles scrape the ground, you ignorant redneck!

          Biblical science??? …hmmmm.. how do these two words even come into the same sentence? There is nothing scientific or even real about the bible, it is fiction, not to say there not some good morals that we, as a human species, just as the people that wrote the bible, came to our own conclusions, as it is a part of sentience and an evolutionary stepping stone. The Christian religion, like most existing religions today, are based on Pagan astrology, I bet you have never even looked into or considered this. Quick example, look at all of the similarities between Jesus and the Egyptian Horus, Born dec 12th, of a virgin, three kings, star in the sky, had 12 followers, worked as a carpenter, died, resurrected etc…. the list goes on, there are at least 20 other deity’s, gods etc….that existed over 10 thousand years before Jesus, that’s right, look it up! that have very similar or exactly the same details as Jesus, why do you think this is???? Open your eyes!

          Religion is also in collusion with those that control this planet, including, war, famine, death and the monetary slavery we are all endentured to. Religion has always been used by our leaders, and historically, these have been and still are religious leaders, to control the less educated people of this world, which is the majority, through fear of a god that will smite you down for being a ‘sinner’…….But he loves you!!!! What a farce.

          People that are religious have taken the easy way out, they have everything answered for them, they don’t need to think for themselves, how does our species advance and evolve, if we have all the answers, and if we have all the answers, why are we still living in such a corrupt and bloodied world today, where is your god? an innocent child dies every three seconds, infact 10 children have died whilst writing this incredibly insightful piece of enlightenment. Watch Zeitgeist films, don’t dismiss it, it will open your eyes to the ‘real’ world, and how to go about truly solving the earths problems, so that we all might truly explore our humanity, our spirituality, wherever it may take you!

        6. The TRUTH ABOUT AIDS

          Actually Rev, there were no aids raping savage africans. Lets take a quick biology lesson about these green apes you speak of. These green apes are very viscious and tempered apes. Apes generally have (dont quote me on this one BUT) I believe apes have about 2 or 3 times more muscle mass per pound than humans do. Therefore an ape could very, veryyyy easily outpower a man. It could also out run, outclimb and outfight a man. Now you want to talk about groups of men raping one monkey? Ok, lets take a look at that. These monkeys that carry AIDS have RAZOR SHARP claws and teeth. Now i cant speak for the general population of men. However, as a man I can personally say my weiner would never get near razor sharp claws or teeth. I dont care if Paris freaking Hilton had razor sharp teeth, my weiner aint going near there. Youre lies and perversion of the truth is sickening. You Illuminists will do anything to destroy the name of Our Lord and Savior, The Son of God, Jesus the Christ. Everybody knows AIDS was spread through vaccinations tainted with the AIDS virus to cause a depopulation of Africa in order to contribute to you globalistic’s plans for controlling the world and stomping on the HOLY LORD ALMIGHTY!!! God is watching you! Satan has fallen and the Lord God Lives! This world will be Jesus’ in the times soon to come!

            Proof? Have you ever heard the sounds gay men make while indulging in their sinful seed spilling? Those noises — they’s monkey noises, they is.

            Homosexuality is a monkey fetish, but there aren’t enough monkeys to go round in San Francisco, so the monkey lovers make believe (not “make love”! love is between a man and a woman!) with each other.

            You tell me I’m wrong. You just tell me I’m wrong. You know you can’t.

          2. Really?

            Jeb III, Only you would know what sounds gay men make… and they probably echo around in your head and become distorted by all the other words you choose to define your reality with. I’ll bet you are snickering now, as you see yet one more visitor pass through your website where you make money by their click-throughs.

          Two years ago I traveled to Burningman (Evolution)to see what it was all about and I must say the spirit and acceptance displayed by all drove me to going last year also!
          Perhaps you Christians should attend to understand what true acceptance and love is all about. Yes there is sex if you want it but behind many rectory doors theres sex if you want it.

          Wow, Rev. Custer, either you are the most uninformed homophobic bible thumper on the face of the planet… or you are just as dumb as the retarded notion that a man in the clouds dictates, judges then punishes or rewards man for what he perceives to be moral and right.

          First off; AIDS did not necessarily come from Africa, the disease popped up at the exact same time in America as it did in Africa! Specifically speaking in the mid 70’s and even though it was thought to be a “Gay Disease” it infected just as many if not MORE straight men and women in poor communities in New York City then it did people in the gay community at first.

          The disease did spread allot faster in the gay community this is true, and yes you could attribute this to the promiscuity prevalent in the gay communities. However, in NO WAY WHATSOEVER is AIDS a disease cause by gay men, let alone gay men with an affinity for bestiality! It saddens me greatly that a Rev. with a possible means of shaping young peoples minds would have such an evil, hate-mongering outlook on such a tragic case of a vaccination causing an epidemic…

          If you want to know the truth, their is a very specific reason WHY chimpanzees and the HIV virus are related, and if you took two seconds to do a bit of research you would learn that it had absolutely nothing to do with men having sex with chimps and everything to do with the development of an experimental Hepatitis B vaccine that was created using chimpanzee antibodies that was tested first (without their knowledge I might add) in clinics in Africa, the poorer black neighborhoods in NYC and gay hep B patience in San Francisco and NYC.

          You sir need to educate your self before you start spewing off such hate filled bullshit, and maybe do the world a favor and go suck on a tail pipe until you meet your imaginary friend in the clouds. Douche.

        You guys crack me up. I hope none of these comments are actually serious. AIDS actually came from America, just like some of the other deadly diseases that we brought to third world countries when we did illegal and unconstitutional testing on sick groups. The AIDS virus was created in a laboratory right here in the US, and distributed to Africa as a crude attempt to begin depopulation. Ask any scientist who studies AIDS and they will tell you that it is impossible for any natural born bacteria or virus to suddenly spring forth and spread in the way that AIDS has.

            Wow, you really didn’t learn anything from your bible did you? God is GOOD, not bad, therefore to say that he created AIDS is dumb on two part, 1) It is HIV, AIDS is a syndrome caused by a virus, that virus is HIV, so it is really incorrect to say that somebody catches AIDS, or even that god created AIDS, he only “created” the virus known as HIV. Secondly, he didn’t create anything negative, that is in the bible, sin comes from man, not from God. So please, learn some more about the religion that you choose to oppress people with before you try to talk about it, because you just sound dumb.

          2. GOD CREATED ALL

            @ Robby
            God can decide to let us suffer or not. God has put famine on the earth and plagues. People are cursed with diseases, others have it who are righteous in his eyes. God can vanquish any evil and God created Satin. Without sin we would not know the difference between good and evil. Both God created. He created everything! And can allow things to come to pass if he wants. Everything is under his control though we may not understand it. It is not up to you to tell others what he created and what he didn’t, because in reality he knows all and created all.
            And how about you, while you’re at it, learn that everyone believes a little differently and stop insulting others.
            Sure makes you look like a great Christian someone wants to follow doesn’t it?

        4. Kevin Schmidt

          Actually…

          ‘According to the ‘Natural transfer’ theory (also called ‘Hunter Theory’ or ‘Bushmeat Theory’), the “simplest and most plausible explanation for the cross-species transmission” of SIV or HIV (post mutation), the virus was transmitted from an ape or monkey to a human when a hunter or bushmeat vendor/handler was bitten or cut while hunting or butchering the animal.

          The resulting exposure to blood or other bodily fluids of the animal can result in SIV infection.

          A recent serological survey showed that human infections by SIV are not rare in Central Africa: the percentage of people showing seroreactivity to antigens – evidence of current or past SIV infection – was 2.3% among the general population of Cameroon, 7.8% in villages where bushmeat is practiced, and 17.1% in the most exposed people of these villages.

          How the SIV virus would have transformed into HIV after infection of the hunter or bushmeat handler from the ape/monkey is still a matter of debate, although natural selection would favor any virions capable of adjusting so that they could infect and reproduce in the T cells of a human host.’

            Hmmm… on a serious note, if SIV isn’t generally fatal in humans, does it have any potential as a basis for innoculations, like how we use specially-bred cow TB in the BCG to protect against TB in humans?

            Kevin,
            All conspiracy theories aside about fucking monkeys and eating tainted monkeys, US gov labs and false inoculations a la the american native yellow fever/measles style, this is the most solid data I have heard on the origin of the HI virus. However I have to condemn you for siting wikipedia. if you go to the bottom of the wiki article the poster will most likely have links to or sources that are legitimate. That’s what you want to site.
            @ jeb III below, Just heard this story on satan’s radio, otherwise known as NPR, there is one confirmed (not magic johnson style) case of a german man that was cured. It has something to do with his mildly rare form of lymphoma cancer and the experimental treatment there of. It’s something like his t-cells when attacked by the virus turn off the attack mechanism in the virus. So it can’t really spread throughout the body. that is an extreme paraphrase and stitched together at that from a memory like a colander. You can probably find the archived story at npr.org search for “aids cure” (i’m not doing the research for you)
            ps: the article was funny, but be careful in your strive at authenticity, and slow down on being pissed at people for not getting it. remember Orson Wells panicked hundreds of thousands of people that tuned in late to a radio broadcast, which was the internet of the time.

          Your kind of an idiot, and by the way, your article is so off base, Burning man doesn’t take place in the Blockhole Desert, it’s the Blackrock desert, and it is actually in Northern Nevada, about 8-9 hours drive from Las Vegas, outside of RENO, well that is the closest thing to a big city anyways. And if HIV (not AIDS by the way) was created by God than why do god fearing women in marriages contract the virus?

          let me pose a question…who is making these “homosexuals”? Um that would be heterosexual couples. So according to you perhaps we should all quit breeding? Personally I believe that you should not judge..I believe the Bible says….”Judge not lest you be judged, for GOD will judge you as harshly as you judge others”. Good luck Mr. Bowers preeching your BS in hell. Let us know how that works for you.

            I hope you do not breed, because you can only quote the one bible verse that everybody quotes to us, while we can quote multiple verses to refute you. Please leave your sad opinions in your mind and take care of your 3 or 4 children you have from 9 different “Baby Daddies”. You will not find those “Baby Daddies” by going back to Burning Man, all you will find is another pregnancy.

          Excuse me, Tyson is it? Your article has to me the most misinterpreted, piece of yellow jounalism I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading. Where did you get your facts? Burning Man is not sponsored by anything or anyone. Did you go incognito one year to really see what Burning man was all about? Hey, you must have been the asshat everyone was talking about.

          Not only are your facts grossly incorrect, but so is saying that “Gays did and God didn’t make gay”. When the last time you had lunch with him and talked to him about homosexuality or Burning Man? Do you have a red phone to God? Was it like, “Hey God, so what do you think about all these homos and the AIDS they brought to us?”

          God made each and everyone of us. We are all His children, no matter what. He loves each and everyone of us. Who are YOU to pass judgment on anyone? YOU are not God. He’s the only one who can pass judgment.

          You have this sick, perverted, mind that insists on spewing filth and lies of something you have no knowledge of. You remind me of Jim Jones. He suckered innocent people to believe he was some kind of prophet or God-like man, and look how that turned out.

          Having an opinion is one thing. But using your poison pen to translate a gathering of people who don’t hate, and only care about their fellow human being, into sick and twisted version of your own soul is blasphemy.

          May you seek forgiveness and receive a penance for the hatred and sickness of your mind and soul.

          May God Bless you

          Tyson, you ignorant twat, it is all so easy to dismiss everything bad in this world as ‘Satan did it’. (not saying at all that being homosexual is bad, I am pro-gay and believe gay people are naturally designed by mother nature)

          I suppose Satan really did posses all those young innocent girls that were burnt at the stake, because they turned down advances from dirty, filthy men like you and accused of being witches for doing so!

          Bet you say ‘Satan made me do it’ when ever you do something you know you are not supposed to, or something bad happening in the world, ‘Satan’s at it again…look at that’! Wake up and open your eyes!

          As the great George Carlin said: ‘I think we’re part of a greater wisdom than we will ever understand. A higher order. Call it what you want. Know what I call it? The Big Electron. The Big Electron…whoooa. Whoooa. Whoooa. It doesn’t punish, it doesn’t reward, it doesn’t judge at all. It just is. And so are we. For a little while’.

          And that is not a religious statement, if you think it is, you don’t get it, and sadly for you, you probably never will. I look forward to a day we actually become an enlightened species and threads like this would never even exist.

          It is as funny as hell though! Hail Satan!

      I respect the right to voice an opinion here, many have died for that right, many in my family.
      I have learned many religions, many cultures and many beliefs. I like to study people, our organic world, our minds and our meta physical world. The views in this statement however reminds me of all of the people who sit up in the stands and point fingers and people on the playing field. It also reminds me of the people who suddenly learn something and think everybody should do the same or not do the same as it were. The narrowness and inability to seamlessly change ones perception in many people like this is disturbing. If you looked at this person hard you will find traits like prejudice, insecurity, paranoia, and the general inability to mindful enough to not believe everything you read, and hear. Sad really that we have so many pea brains alongside of us.

      if anyone had actually been to burning man, they would laugh their asses off at this.

      oh yes, there’s drugs and sex and dancing, but that’s a small group, if not being done in the privacy of ones own tent.

      and what about the great christen services they have on Sunday’s in the desert? or the multi-denominational congregations that dance to celebrate life?

      oh, and btw, AIDs came from Africa, from monkeys. if an EVENT actually could make stds, then we have issues.

      another note: most of the events at burning man you have to be either 18 or 21 to enter. nice ploy of suggesting teenagers end up in the middle of the desert on their own for this.

      it comes down to this, it’s fun, it’s not your moral code, therefore it’s wrong. just be honest and stop making shit up. isn’t lying a sin? and making shit up is lying.

      get out there and experience it. THEN make a judgement.

      Satire or not; some are not smart enough to catch on. Grammatically incorrect, factually incorrect, just a bunch of heathen lies. As a former Nevada native, I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, Burning Man is the tamest thing you’ll find in that state. Gays are not wanted, nor tolerated, and you’ll find at least three or four churches per square mile, because the people who didn’t lose all of it to the house can put it in the collection plate. Churches don’t care your sexuality, only your pocketbook.

      For it truly to be sarcasm, it must have an err of truth involved. The only thing I read truthfully was “drum & bass” music (not “drummed and based”). Speaking of which, how can I base techno music? I think I need some more tin foil.

      FTA: “Burning Man is a week long festival of book burning, anti-God worship and baby eating babble that only Satan himself would be able to fondle himself over.”

      I’m anti-Burning for other reasons, mostly because I fondle myself to death metal, while spanking off with pig’s blood, and even though Burning Man offers a lot, they don’t have a tent for me. :(

      I’ll see y’all at the rapture; I’ll be the one roasting weenies off your burning corpses. That will be all.

      I’ve also heard Burning Man is just a big soup cook off where men and women wear full body corned beef suits and talk only in pig-latin. They collect their own feces and store it for seven days in Rubbermaid tubs, but only after a dark ritual involving typhoid disease and yogurt. On the final day, they season the fecal matter with Emeril’s steak rub, call upon the fiery demons of hell to consolidate their car payments for the coming year, and finally fertilize the desert floor with the spiciest of fecal matter ever known to our Lord above. This act is done in the hopes that a healthy yielding crop of demonic Danish potatoes and Satanic celery root may finally consume us all.

      I love Christian people. Oh, how boring life would be without them.

      The best part about this is that since Christian research doesn’t have any access to facts or anything that could even come close to indisputably winning an argument, they have to resort to name calling. As a result, every time they refer to the people in this article, they’re called “whore-people” or “sinner-people” instead of just people. And what’s the deal with the “fecal flinging homosexuals”? That doesn’t even make sense! Are gays known to fling poo? Or is that just a completely unrelated attempt at an insult, which happens to not even be insulting because it literally came out of nowhere. It’s like the author was lost for words to describe gay people, and so he just thought of something he probably wouldn’t like (being covered in poo) and then called them that.

      It’s pathetic, really, to see people devoting their lives to the guaranteed misery that is religion. The dudes are going to be so sad when they’re dead, and they realize there is no heaven, and that they’ve wasted their entire lives trying to please someone that doesn’t exist.

      Haven’t you guys noticed that bible research isn’t research yet? I mean, you would think that after all the failed end of the world predictions people would start to wonder whether all the other “facts” in the Christian religion might be made up bullshit as well? But perhaps not… I guess you have to be pretty dumb to join the faith in the first place, so you can’t really expect much of them.

      Also, if you’re trying to prove a point, you might want to proofread your article. Otherwise you just look dumb…er.

        It truly astounds me that the establishment has successfully wielded organized religion as the mass mind control device that it is for so long on so many unsuspecting souls with such impunity!

        Those of you who claim to be open-minded (especially in this particular Swiss-cheese religion) should probably challenge yourselves by stepping outside of the prescribed dosage of history taught in modern schools and and broadcast on television channels and start tracing your own ideological roots with sources OTHER than the bible…the results might just surprise you, and if you’re really lucky, open your eyes to the fallacy that has been orchestrated upon your kind over centuries.

      Is Burning-Man to Blame for the Increase in American Teen STD Cases (Edited by DBell for ACCURACY!)

      Did you know there is a place in Las Vegas (80 miles North of Reno is a long way from Vegas!)
      …you can go to and burn Bibles (I searched Bible burning” and found nothing to show anyone had ever done so)
      …while making sex sessions with random women dressed up like the Easter Bunny (The Bunny parade is mostly guys and just for “fun”!)
      …and little bubble bees? (Costumes offend this open minded individual! I wanna read his Halloween rant!)
      …Has anyone told you that you can be apart of a week long journey of hazy drug male sin docking, with married men? (Married men in homosexual relationships? Sounds like most fundamentalist Christians!)
      …Anyone ever tell you about a group of meth laced lollipop lickers, dancing to Satanic drum beats (Never heard of such! I guess the implication is that they would be given to children! Drums = Satinanic?)

      …while semen demons (It is BAD to ejaculate!)
      …and devil whores dance in sexual gyrations? (Dancing IS sexual – or at least CAN be! Sex = Bad!)
      …Have you ever heard of stories about a fiery idol being burned to celebrate deviancy against God? (Yea, I saw so many people celebrating deviency against God! There must be 200+ Yoga sessions on La Playa! Oh, Yoga is most likely also a crime against God!)

      If so, you most likely are hearing the horrid tales of a festival called “Burning Man”, which is a annually held music festival to celebrate everything anti-American and anti-morals. (Freedom of expression is Anti-American and against God? Art is against God!).

      What is Burning Man?
      …Burning Man is an annual, week long drug slinger festival sponsored by Hot Topic (Who is Hot Topic? Burning Man is NOT SPONSORED BY ANYONE! It is against the basic principle to commercialize B-Man! (98%. or so, of the B-Man budget is from the (large) admission fee!)

      …that is held in the Blackhole Desert (Blackrock Desert! great, accurate research!)
      …in the northern part of Las Vegas. (Again, 80 miles Nort of Reno is NOT near Vegas!)
      …Burning Man is a week long festival of book burning, anti-God worship and baby eating babble that only Satan himself would be able to fondle himself over. (Baby eating? Infantcide in BRC? Call the cops! And Kidscamp, a group of extremely caring parents would be SHOCKED to hear this!)
      ….At each party, the party goers are encouraged to create their own false idols (Er, make art = false idols?)
      …which they will later on burn and dance around as they joyfully sin in hopes to arouse Satan in a erotic fantasy of orgasms. yes the goal is to arouse satin! (Not to burn your art to make it truely “tempoary” or so ya don’t have to lug it home! And, again, orgasms are BAD!).
      Who Goes to Burning Man?
      …Besides the copious amounts of fecal flinging, sex addicted homosexuals (Fecal flinging? Yea, people do THAT all day. every day! I’ll just have to find “Camp Fecal Flinging” as I bet it would be oh so popular!)
      …the clown dressed midgets and bath salt sniffing hippies, (Midget just LOVE those clown suits! And why would anyone sniff bath salts? Midgets = Devil!)
      …you can see a wide variety of God hating sinners (Damn! ust look at all the anti-od camps! 2011s theme camp list is on burningman.com, check it out!)
      …Burning man usually consists of around 122,500 to 182,805 (50,000 or so)
      …people looking to reenact scenes that would make a Roman bath house look like the softest form of downloadable .avi porn on the internet. (I am sure the author know ALL about net porn!)
      The whore women (Tho shalt NOT judge!)
      …are asked to weird the most outlandish outfits (“Asked” by whom?)
      and to make sure that woman have their milk sacks exposed (“milk sacks”?)
      …or to at least have moist camel hump noticeable (An official dress code requirement!)
      in the tight shorts. It is very common to see women in Old Navy hot pants, Hot Topic (A clothing company this individual must have something against)
      fish nets and cut up Dirty Shirty bosom tops with words like “My Dad Says I’m Cute” (Remind me to go to Camp pedophilia/Incest!)
      or “I Always Get Backstage” smeared across them. Men are told to dress up like something you would see out of a nightmarish San Fransisco leather parade and that you can show bare chest only if you have a sculptured solid body. (Oh, ya cannot take yer shirt of unless you have a sculptured body! A good body is NOT a gift of God, rather the Devil!).
      Pretty much if you asked a gps to look for a group of ugly people who play with necromantic black magic and love to partake in a oily interracial sex orgy (Interracial sex is against the will of God! what a fuckin’ RACIST!)
      …it would point you right to this desert festival of gluttonous fornication.

      What Goes on at Burning Man?
      …What the immature amounts of female nudity and exposed male sin snakes (immature nudity? Huh?)
      …isn’t enough? Or how about the naked tug of war games or the false idol constructions? Or to top it off, how about large amounts of gay men tip toeing in the desert, hammering out male on male mouth sex acts, while hippies cheer them on and take photos (Obviously he NEVER read the policy on taking movies and photos! You are NOT to do so w/o permission!)
      …to upload to their Twitter accounts.
      Have you every heard of a “STD Party”? If not, a STD Party is were groups of disease infested party goers, like our Burning Man friends here and they sign up on a list stating which STD they have. (So, people who have herpes should just stay celebate)
      …Once on the list, they are able to look at others on the list and see which type of STD they want to swap. Once they pick out their fancy, they met up in a what they call “Caring Tent” and partake in a sandy act of sexual transfusion and Satanic pleasures.
      Parties like these are what caused the black plague in England. Unmoral, non-God loving drunks would have multiple sex insertion sessions with unwashed privates parts from multiple people and would spread sickness across the lands (Actually the homos will wash your private parts! Honestly!)
      If we don’t stop (Fuck off! Stop this for America! What a fuck head!)
      …this, America will be facing the same low t-cell count destiny.

      …If the STD parties don’t tickle your penile or baby hole fancy (This guy is most likely a pedophile)
      …you can always join in on the animal sacrifices or take a demonic journey in the acid trip sweat rooms (Call PETA!).
      …Dancing to “drummed and based” music is also a very popular event. So if you’re a maniac for dancing under the Devil’s desert disco ball (He is RIGHT here! Disco is demonic!)
      …you will have a place to call home.
      So if you want to ride first class on hell’s 747 or have your body riddled with illnesses, hop in your car and drink from the devil’s pleasure cup. If you want to be bless with eternal life then band with us and say no to this false paradise of gang banging hussies and phallic exposing maestros.

      (I wish this guy had taken credit for writing this! Then when we read of his having infants enslaved in his back yard and raping them while reading a pornographic version of the Bible we can all just laugh! You know he is one sick mouther fucker!)

      There is more God out at Burning Man than this man has in his soul. I don’t drink or do drugs on the playa. I hang with some of the worlds brightest, most amazing, spiritual beings in that place. There are lot’s of angels at BM. Yes, there are those types that want to party (as if it’s wrong to experience your humanness )??? All that repression this author subconsciously preaches is what’s wrong with the world and why Priest’s molest little boys all over the world in ‘Gods Home”. Us party folks and us spirit seekers cohabitate with one another, remember “love thy Neighbor”???? You obviously have never gone and when I go the spirit goes with me! Please go live a little before passing on so much judgement to others. It would do you a WORLD of Good and GOD.

How can you write about something you have not researched and choose just to make up on the fly to create your own creepy story.

            Your relationship with “man pigs” as you call them is one that you should pray about. Have you been reading JRR Tolkien? Are you attracted to hobbits? You might be talking about orcs; perhaps you enjoy cosplay at Burning Man wherein you get to magically invade Gandalf’s sinhole?

            Perhaps the “man pig” is a common hallucination given the huge amount of mind-melting LSD and snorted Oxycontin that is generously indulged in at these Burning, in Hell, Man Festivals.

            Remember that the homogay man is delirious from the spinning satanic influence that is common in demonic possession. That is why he’ll fornicate with anything, including animals or the knothole in the fence.
            It’s the fecal sphincter that attracts the homogay man. When a brown star is presented to the possessed homo-gay, he cannot help himself and will immediately engage in sinstick plunging.

          You know, there is a difference between sensual and sexual, bigot. So men can take their shirts off without it being sexual, but women can’t enjoy the sun on your skin because you can’t keep your dick down? Sounds like male domination to me. Doesn’t your god believe all people are equal? Then why does he allow women to be oppressed and called whores when they want to enjoy the sun on your skin. A woman is trying to entice someone when they come up and stark kissing and REALLY flirting with them, not when they are wearing a halter top and shorts. I am sure that if the god from the bible that you believe in is out there, he is pretty disgusted with your words and actions.

Why is that such a hard teaching to accept by those claiming to love God and want to save other people’s souls? Its one of the most basic teaching of Jesus. And thanks for the update. I wonder what the church had to gain by making up that the women Jesus chose as his disciple was a whore. How nice of them to finally clear that up.

      And if anyone needs any better example of God-lovin’ (cause God-fearin’ is for those that forget that God made us in his image and loves each and everyone of us) in a situation like this. Well, after the man burned and a night of celebrating life commenced, the next morning I found me a massive statue of the virgin Mary (very traditional, exactly what I needed) and prayed for hours thanking the lord for the world he has made for us and the people he has chosen to fill it and all our quirks.

      A quick internet search about Burning Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_man) will quickly show you that this author did about 30 seconds of research before writing this article.

      Not to mention he got the place, number of participants, funding, and a myriad of other important facts incorrect. It leads me to believe that maybe everything in this article is true……but that the author is just incorrect about the name of the event. Maybe this weird satanic fecal-flinging orgy really does happen near vegas!

      Another important note is that THIS FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE ON GOVERNMENT LAND! There are local, state and federal police here to see that any deviant activity that goes on here is condoned by our government!

    Is this article for real? I’m laughing because i think it is fake… This is the most spiritual event i have ever been to, and yes although there might be some r-rated events going on here, It doesn’t mean you people can crap on our beautiful event. We burn this “fiery idol” because it means something different to each of us. For some of us, it is letting go of lost loved ones. If you people truly understood the REAL reasons behind this “anti-american and anti-moral” festival, then you wouldn’t be taking sh!! about it. Don’t say ANYTHING till you go and truly experience it yourself…

    So many assumptions and false truths… wasn’t there something in the bible about bearing false witness? Oh yeah, its one of the BIG 10! False Info Rundown:

    1. Its held in the Black Rock Desert outside of Reno… Not Blackhole Desert (is there such a desert?) outside of Las Vegas

    2. Its not sponsored by ANYONE! Thats would go against the principles of Burning Man, radical self-reliance and decommodification to be exact. Not to mention Hot Topic is owned by Gap… ugh…

    3. Fecal flinging? Really… who the hell wants to go to hot ass desert for a week to have literal shit thrown on them… that’s a level of messed up NO ONE at Burning Man would want!

    4. Burning Man has 122,500 to 182,805 visitors… really so specific down to the 805th person… In reality their last year was their record year with just over 60,000 people. So you’re off my a factor or 2-3!

    5. STD swap party? Once again… Really? Seriously? Are you kidding me? I mean who really is walking around on a daily basis thinking to themselves… ‘You know what I need to my day more perfect… another STD!’

    6.”Parties like these are what caused the black plague in England.” So a liar and now a fake historian. History Lesson: The Black Plague or medically known as the Bubonic Plague was transmitted by flees from infected rats due to unsanitary conditions in medieval cities… And the plague was historically traced back to Mongolia not a 12th century historic rave/satanic worship party.

    Now you’ll obviously notice that I didn’t mention all of your falsehoods concerning the devil worship and satanic orgy stuff because If I can’t convince you of actual historic FACT and TRUTH, how the hell am I going to change you opinion on those topics?

        Don’t forget to check the event’s principles on decommodification, and you’ll see how this was clearly a prank.

    This article is 1000% accurate. In the 7 times I have gone to the “Burning Man” with other christian evangelicals to rescue as many of God’s children from the Satanic “Caring Tents” and acid trip sweat lodges, I have witnessed the most abhorrent examples of abomination before God imaginable.

    Sodom and Gamorha had nothing on these hedonistic devil worshiping hippies. Sex, sex, sex, drugs, sex and drugs 24/7. No condoms allowed. The article leaves out the common practice of bestiality as everywhere you look someone is mounting or orally servicing a great dane, horse, donkey, sheep or monkey. I have hours of video I took to prove this, which also captures every imaginable perverted sex act. Men bugger men right in front of refreshment stands, while women are bent over trash cans while lines form at their rear.

    Drugs flow like milk and honey and are dirt cheap….purposely of the highest quality and potency. It is very easy to find yourself drugged by spiked lemonade and waking up face down in the Caring Tent with your meant only for outgoing expulsion hole filled with ingoing tent poles.

    We cannot let Satan win, so myself and a number of our crusaders will return again this year, despite the dangers.

And about that NO CONDOMS ALLOWED thing…I remember hearing that that the Christian church was completely against all forms of birth control so for you to add that in sounds a bit out of place. I wonder how you KNOW the drugs are highly potent? You seem to speak from experience in regards to that “finding your self drugged and face down” business.

There is no STD parties that you speak of. This article seems like a complete fabrication to try to paint Burning man as to being something that it is not.

    I know… yeah this is some kinda troll website thing just to stir up fake rage or whatever… but I love debating, so I’m going to continue… just for the hell of it. Uh oh… I mentioned hell…

    Now on to the body of this post, I have noticed with the exception of Mr. Bowers misguided attempt to connect Burning Man to Hot Topic (thank you for that bit of info rayvn!), not a single dissenter has actually tried in earnest to refute a single one of my FACTS. Well I guess that’s why they’re called facts, but none the less I feel a need to address some of the responses to my post.

    This is for Leviticus 3:18, what does enlightened burner mean… good question. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary Enlightened is defined as 1. Having or showing a rational, modern, and well-informed outlook or 2. Spiritually aware. Now I don’t claim to be spiritually aware because there are many things in this world i’m not aware of (anyone else here just notice they’re heart beat?) let alone my entire spirituality. But on the other hand I do considered myself rational, modern, and well-informed (you get that from reading… stuff other than the bible). That is why I used facts and logical thinking that follows a series of causalities and events. As for the second part well a Burner is the colloquial reference to those who attend “Burns” as there are several Burning Man styled events all over the world. Actually I think I just missed the one in Spain this weekend (Dammit!).

    I would respond to Larry Harvey but considering he had nothing to say except for deriding me… I’ll chose to be the better man (or woman) and not slander my fellow human being… Oops, Im being Christ-like again…

    Next onto Doug Diddle, how can you be 1000% correct? Is that like a 200% rise in the stock market. Last I checked you couldn’t logically be more that 100% correct. Actually, I figured it out… Its like multiplying negative numbers, so 200% correct would actually be incorrect and so on… As for the Sodom and Gamorha reference, well last time I went to a burn the holiest amongst us never offered up his daughters to be raped by a crowd… In fact IF that happened, we’d kick that asshole out of the party! To PROVE you have never been to a Burning Man let me pull a quote from you, “while women are bent over trash cans while lines form at their rear.” Now this CAN’T possible happen because there ARE NO TRASH CANS at Burning Man, hence another of the principles: Leave No Trace. In essence we are all responsible for all the trash and garbage we create so we all have to pick up after ourselves (what kind of hippy BS is that?). Basically NO TRASHCANS… no women to bend over them! As for the drugs flow like milk and honey reference (nice Rosh Hashanah reference… dammit this guy (or gal) knows religion… FUCK!), have you ever seen honey flow? Its really, really slow and once again no one wants to bring milk out to the desert (Anchorman anyone… Milk was a bad idea!)

    Now to any logical debater, you’ll realized I didn’t really respond to that comment, cause I just wanted to use some of their tactics on them, but there is a sizable majority of Burners who choose to abstain from drugs, as for the rest… its their damn bodies and what they want to do with them is fine by me. Oh there I go being Christ-like again and respecting the ideas and choices of others… Dammit!

Yes, there are scantily clad people (the photos appear to be real), and there is sex, and there are people in altered states, but really, it’s not nearly as exciting and depraved as you would, for some reason, like to believe. Dream on, my friends. But keep it to yourselves — when you start trying to make policy based on your bizarre imaginings, that’s when you make people really mad.

    @Leviticus 3:18, First off when you quote me… don’t edit my quote… then its no longer a quote. I said I don’t claim to be SPIRITUALLY aware, which I’m not. I feel spiritual on a sort of random basis, it comes and goes depending on this situation because its impossible to always be cognizant of your spiritual self, otherwise it wouldn’t be something special. Now as for knowing what a man knows, I prefer to defer to a higher wisdom than myself… Socrates, “True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.” You see that’s my whole deal… I preach the gospel of I don’t know, because I know that you don’t know either, and you aren’t imbued with some special power that I am not. And if you really do think that god IS talking to you… you don’t need a church, you need a psychiatric clinic.

    And as a quick footnote… I graduated from college several years ago, and I didn’t need moral ambiguity (or in your case, presumed righteousness) to get laid, charm, intelligence, and being damn cute was all I needed.

    You apparently are unaware of the Christian presence at the festival.

    Real Christians are bastions of Peace and Harbingers of the Good Word.

    Get your facts straight and stop spreading dirty words and smut all over the internet where anyone, including children can read it.

    This is some of the worst writing I have ever read! Besides the holier-than-though, prude, Old Testamant jivea ss dogma spewing, the “writer” makes many grammatical errors, did not do any fact-checking and clearly assumes that his god has elected him to pass judgement on others. LOL
    The “writer” makes it obvious in the first few words that he has not ever been to Burning Man and his editor just fluffed up(a fluffer?) the piece with BM stock photos borrowed or stolen(a sin) from Burner blog pages or Squid List…
    It would take me 2,000 more words to pint out the many mistakes, but I’ll just list a few instead.
    1. Burning Man is not in Las Vegas or north Las Vegas, I think the “writer” got Las Vegas confused with the state’s name: Nevada.
    2. The festival takes place in the Black Rock Desert, not the “Blackhole Desert”
    3. The event is not sponsored by Hot Topic. The fest is mostly financed by advance ticket sales, you tool!
    4. The sex & drugs element of Burning Man festival is the stereotype. Sure, there’s nudity there, but it’s only about 9% of the population of the festival, you freakin’ dork!
    5. The festival has less than 65,000 people at it, not the “writer’s” huge numbers was clearly inflated and a lie. he did that to exaggerate and win some followers(sin on, brother!).
    6. When I got to the 19th or 20th time the “writer” mentioned graphic sex things, and phrases like “sin snake” and “milk sacks” I realized that this is one of those perverted people who hide behind their vocabulary, stating that it’s real journalism, , blah, blah. Kinda like the winos who hang out at wine bars and tasting room to pretend they are into the wine as an aesthetic, when they are really there to keep their world spinning.
    7. The music heard in some of the camps is called drum and bass, not “drum and based”.
    I can just imagine the writer and his ediotr wanking madly as they proof-read this story. Kinda like the TV preachers that preach against adultery, homosexuality and drugs, but then we see them in the news: cheating on their wives, having a boy toy on the side and snorting blow while they blow…
    I can;t believe a jesus-faith based website would actually publish this jackoff’s porn-like story, loosely based on a festival he has niether attended nor knows much about. This is evident in his failure to mention the impressive art at BM, and that it is one of the premiere festivals in the world for site-specific sculptures.
    I’ll end with a note to the “writer”: Hey man-boy, Pease let me buy you a ticket to BM 2011. I’ll take you to Jiffy Lube, Body Wash and Spank You Very Much camps so you can finally own up to your latent persona and start to have more fun in life.
    Until then, bugger off you false profit wanker!

      You also need to learn how to edit your article. It’s called proof reading. You lose all credibility when you say things like “The whore women are asked to weird the most outlandish outfits and to make sure that woman have their milk sacks exposed or to at least have moist camel hump noticeable in the tight shorts.” That doesn’t make sense. Learn how to write, then come back to me with a compelling argument, not an obviously overly biased string of bull shit.

    Leave it to some ignorant, closed minded, judgmental Christian moron to slap a completely unrealistic stigma on Burning Man. I’ve been 3 years and not once have I taken drugs or had sex while on the Playa. Obviously this idiot has never been there or he’d know that there are Christian based camps that establish out in Black Rock City Nevada, 3 hours North East of Reno NOT in Las Vegas. The festival is about unity and consciousness, some ideals that Christians and other organized religions hypocritically pretend that they uphold. Judgements aren’t meant to be held by some idiot who has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. This article is NOT factual, poorly written, and provides no evidence to support any of his points other than a bunch of ignorant bible thumping mumbo jumbo. Burning Man is a collective of some of the best art in the world and those whores and devil men this idiot speaks of, are more welcoming, helpful, less judgemental, care more about people, the planet, and EVERYTHING in it a thousandfold the times any give Christian cares about anything. Jesus was an understanding and utterly righteous man, he would be absolutely offended, and sorely disappointed in modern day Christianity. They do NOT uphold ANY of the same beliefs as Christ. I’m not saying there isn’t sex and plenty of drugs in Black Rock, but you wont find what you aren’t looking for, and I don’t think you have room to say fu<k all if you've never been there before. Get facts before you spout off a bunch of stupid babble bible man. God Bless :)

    Wow… I didn’t know that God wanted his children to be uneducated folks, incapable of doing proper research and using correct terminology (and spelling) in order to spread his words.

    Let’s see, an ART FESTIVAL in the desert (look it up folks, more art and creativity at the Burn than any 5 other ‘festivals’ religious or not you can name.

    Drummed and Based Music (I love this) it’s actually Drum and Bass referring to the style of music being played predominantly comprised of Drum tracks and low Bass ambiance to make a more complex dance rhythm. And if singing and dancing is such a sin… Why do you do it in Churches across the world? Oh yes, it’s because of this:

    Chronicles 29:28
    The whole assembly bowed in worship, while the singers sang and the trumpeters played. All this continued until the sacrifice of the burnt offering was completed.

    Hmmm, a burnt offering? Singing, dancing, has to be the work of the Devil in modern religion.

    And of course let’s not forget man’s mortal sin of NUDITY! Oh wait, that isn’t a sin (no where in the bible is it labelled as such) in fact the “evil of nudity” only came about do to man eating from the Tree of Knowledge and understanding what nudity is. Animals are nude from beginning to end of life (sorry kids, clothing is an externally applied covering to your natural exterior) guess that blows that away.

    And for all of the ‘devil dust’ lines, phrases and attacks. Its Alkaline dust, so if you think its evil on the Playa, better stop using batteries now before God Smites you down for hypocrisy.

    If you wish to ever be taken seriously, drop the fear and hate tactics, learn to spell, and acquire some basic skills in good grammar.

    ps – What if the third youngest religion on the planet is wrong? Yes folks, Christianity as a whole is the 3rd youngest kid on the block… Must be ‘little man’ syndrome.

    As an Episcopalian who has attended Burning Man, I can tell everyone here that almost everything in the article is a distortion or an outright lie. Perhaps the most egregious is the characterization of the burning man as an “idol.” The legend told at the festival is that the custom began with a bitter man who burned his ex-wife in effigy. Not nice, but hardly an idol.

    The Burning of the Man was actually brought into effect cause some friends got together years ago to help a sad friend. They built a wooden man on a beach to burn away the last years problems. Wether it be money, past loves, or lost friends, they took this time to burn it away and move on to the next year and stage of their lives. It became something that 50,000 people now do every year. It is not in satanic ritual. It has become as big as it is because people all over the world understand and have the same reason to attend… they want to forget about life and it’s trials, if only for a week, to keep themselves sane. They can let go of pain, let go of turmoil and move on with their lives. I went there last year to let my family go. I lost them years ago, and have tried EVERY religion to find faith in something. I found Buddhism. I also found Burning Man. I took my entire family’s ashes there to put into the temple, I sat and watched it burn in silence and cried. Letting go of things that have hindered me and my spirit for years. The energy I felt when this was happening was renewal. I love my family and I will live on for them knowing I WILL see them again. I WILL connect with them again. Never once did I fuck someone with AIDS or fornicate with anyone for that matter. Sex was the LAST thing on my mind. I was there, and will go for the rest of my life, for self renewal and spiritual awakening. I, as well, do all this during the year, but it’s nice to have a place to go and feel like you are not the only one who feels this way. Wether you have a religion or not, you can feel at Home at Burning Man. I have seen every type of person there from the sober to the drunk. From the sad to the happy. Ones with demons and ones who are angels. No matter what you believe or who you are you are Home. No one judges out there. No one points out flaws. No one pushes religion. No one makes you do anything you don’t want to do. I never walked around naked, that’s not my thing… but if that guy wants to do it… let him. He is FREE. I never once thought of it as a satanic party, all I saw was beautiful spirits walking around enjoying the simplicity of the wind on their back the dust in their tent and music from everywhere, never caring for one second about life outside today….. when does that ever get to happen? Never. Our lives are so consumed with religion, the 9-5, bills, kids, payments, endless stresses that are now life, make people depressed which make doctors make medicine to make you better which in turn makes you sick in another way….. there is no enjoyment to life anymore. No time to breath, no time to say thanks…. it’s always go go go go go…… Burning Man is a time to not have a clock. Not have someone telling you your late or your fired, be here, do that….. no rules, no government. Everyone works together to make the city go. We all put in an effort to give while we take the one thing religion, humans and government have taken away…. and that is the feeling of complete control over yourself and what you want to do. I have never eaten a baby, in fact I am a nanny and VERY good at it. Kids love me. I think that is because I have my third eye open, I see what people don’t want adults to see. I can sit and talk with a child and see there imagination rome…. I think they are lucky. That is until people like you close this vision and make them grow up to be slave for a government who is doing nothing for their people. And will never do anything for their people. It is a sad lie of a world we live in and you are the perfect example as to why it has gotten out of hand. Go read your bible and believe go will save you…. my god has already saved me.

    After reading this I feel completely justified in leaving this “religion”. For a group of people who continuously shout out how they are God fearing and God worshiping – they sure do forget one of the MAIN things God stated. Christianity is based on Love – at least that’s what they try and teach all the little children. But as soon as something different comes along – it’s evil and devil worship.

    This writer of this article has zero credibility when they can’t get the most basic of facts straight. Like the event is held just outside of Las Vegas. The fact is that is a closer drive to Salt Lake City and they could’ve easily wrote that it was held outside of Salt Lake City and run by Polygamist Mormoms and both statements would be just as false.

I tried to read Leviticus through megaphone to the blood lactating whores and elementry school rapeists at the “Feast a L’Ucifer’ as they called one party near the center of the city. but I was so disgusted when three old men took a nigger baby out of a swealtering car and filled it with needles untill is vomited- signiling all the menbers of the cult to begin vomiting and taking off their clothed.

    Hilarious! Thank you Tyson for this comical account. You had myself and the rest of my Burner friend in hysterics. Obviously this must be satire. Any well rounded, educated member of the community could never believe such nonsense. As a five year veteran to the Burn I will tell you that one of the main reasons I go it to reconnect with God. A place where true beauty and spirit lives, free from the every day constrains that rat race can place on us all. Whilst there are sex and drugs out there to a lesser extent, it is not the norm and the above account (obviously written by some one who has never been) is so far removed from the truth that I could not restrain from laughing out loud when reading it (again, thank you Tyson, I needed a good chuckle…)
    Burning man is a gifting community where money and commerce go out the window. For one week in the desert near Reno (not Vegas) you can come and share, laugh, dance and be reminded of what is it to be human.
    We could all use a little bit of Burning Man in our lives…..

    I have read most of these comments, skipping the “LOL”, mimicking and mocking of what some are sharing, justifying and sharing. I love how it takes one person to make a statement, another to comment, and the process repeat itself until you have a topic a bunch of people are arguing, bickering and going on and on about what is right and what is wrong.
    People, all of you………What many choose to engage in that you do not, does not affect you should not matter to you. Those of you who engage in something that you agree to engage in and is of your own choosing should not affect someone who chooses not to and that is why I do not understand why so many have something to say about something that doesn’t pertain to them.

    I like to know why so many people think what others do that only affect those doing it, feel so strongly that “they” the bystanders have the “god-given right” to judge someone who self expresses? As small children when we learned about god were told “he” or for some “she” does not judge? So why do you think you have this “god-give” right to judge people who so something you would not?

    I think if it feels good, it self medicates, self heels and makes someone or many feel better, and it hurts no one, then those who choose to not engage in whatever it is none of your business and does not affect you and you need to be quiet.

    As far as STD’s WEAR CONDOMS people……….and you will stop a good portion of them from happening and you will stop a good porting of them infecting others………

    CONDOMS!

    Sponsored by Hot Topic? False. There are no ‘sponsors’ at Burning Man. It goes against everything that beautiful place stands for.

    Burn bibles? The only bibles I have seen at Burning Man were the ones at a Sunday church service. And the ones being held by a group of Chrisian Gospel Singers. Both were incredible experiences.

    Blackhole Desert? The amazing area where the festival is held, is called the Black ROCK Desert.

    122,500 to 182,805?? Last year Burning Man saw the highest attendace in its history of 51,454 people

    STD Party? Come on, really? This one is just sad…

    I am a ‘Christian’ and I am also a ‘Burner’. I work at a Christian outdoor adventure camp in the summers. The people I work with there I only get to see 1 time every year. Last year when I arrived I was so excited to see my ‘Christian Family’. Every single person except for two treated me like I had the plague when I went to hug them. If I were to meet Jesus I highly doubt he would give me that akward chrisian side hug. However, going back to Burning Man every year is a completely different story. My ‘Burner Family’ will embrace me and hold on for dear life, that is one of the best feelings in the world. Not only do they show love the way it should be done, but almost every single person in this ‘Satanic sin filled place’ will treat you like you are one of their own.

    This is the funniest thing I’ve ever read. I don’t know what a “bubble bee” is, but I’m sure I want to fuck it. I will also heretofore refer to all sexual acts as ‘Sin Docking’.

    This is by far the best description of Burning Man I have ever read. I have gone for 15 years and always struggle with the words to describe it to those who have never gone. Thank you for such an accurate synopsis that I can now use to describe what a great time we have in the desert.

    The sad truth is that you believe what you believe because the idiots before you told you to do so. There is absolutely NOTHING factual about christianity…at all…get over it and realize that you’re just another organism on the earth…just a little, and I emphasize little, bit smarter.

    The person who wrote this has obviously never attended Burning Man or talked to anyone who has actually been there. For example, there are not more than about 50,000 people attending. No one tells anyone what to wear. People express themselves artistically with their dress with whatever they want to wear. The effigy that is burned does not represent anything at all, only what you want it to. Sure, there are probably pagans present but there are also people of every other religion attending. Religion has nothing to do with it. Also, it is on federal land and federal drug enforcement officers are known to be on the site, so you won’t see any more drugs or sex than you do at any other public event. Quit making stuff up. You are projecting your own sick fantasies onto what is a public party that has no more or less bad things occurring at it than at any other large, public event where the general public can camp. It’s okay to speak badly of it, but at least use facts instead of your personal sexual fantasies.

Regardless of what you “people” (and I use that word VERY lightly) think, pagans do NOT espouse sex around or with children.

    Burning man also promotes safe sex while out on the playa, and yes we have dust every were because IT IS EVERYWERE AND DOES GET INTO EVERYTHING.

    And the reason there is such a high teenage pregnancy and STD rate, is because parents are not doing there jobs. It is from narrow mindedness, just like what you write about that your daughters go behind your back and have promiscuous behavior. The rate of STD and pregnancy if you look at the #’s a good majority is the so called “good little Christian” girl.

The act of burning a wooden idol of a man goes back to Wiccan beliefs if anything, different gods different customs. And really the bottom line is where do you bible thumping, ignorant, dishonorable hicks get off telling anyone who’s not christian that they’re going to hell and that everything they do is wrong? Take you’re god and you’re jesus and heaven and hell and go f*** your selves with it because you have no right to chastise anyone else when most of ya’ll dont even abide by you’re own religions rules.

You are all judgmental evil people and using God and the bible as a way to bash things you are in fear of or don’t understand is horrible. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. If teens are getting STD’s it has nothing to do with Burning Man. It has to do with uptight bible thumping religious parents who don’t educate their children on protection. You preach about abortion but yet you have no problem murdering or killing people that don’t do what you think they should based on “the bible”. Grow up.

    Have you ever *been* to Burning Man?

    (1) There are not 122,000 to 185,000. The attendance is more like 35-40 thousand.

    (2) Burning Man was founded in 1986, years after AIDS was already killing Hollywood Actors and British Musicians.

    (3) The average attendee is 30-40 and up. It was founded by hippies, not teens.

    (4) While there are orgies, they tend to use condoms, so they’re hardly passing STDs.

    (5) The only way teens can get there is with their parents. You have to be an adult to buy a ticket to burning man and you have to drive 100 miles through the desert with a week’s worth of water and supplies to go.

    (6) The week that I was there, not one of the 35 thousand people threw fecal material. Not one. Unlike the shit you’re slinging here.

      I’m sorry Amber, but if this article is all you know about Burning Man, please do your own research. I can assure you, this author has never attended a Burning Man and therefor has made all of that text in an attempt to control your opinion. Just because 1 or two people call it a “pagan festival” doesn’t mean it’s so.

      The “Man” that is burned at the end of the festival signifies a lot of things to a lot of people, such as renewal of spirit, personal cleansing, or even just consider it living artwork of sorts; but is not some “call to Satan” or “false idol”

      Many churches attend to set up camps at Burning Man, hold services, even marry couples right on site. There are many Burning Man sponsored AA and Sobriety Camps as well, and many more unofficial sober camps: http://www.burningman.com/preparation/event_survival/sober.html?

      It is primarily an art festival. Some groups wish express different views than yours, and they have that right as much as you do.

    First off, you write like a horny 16 year old angry virgin with no English skills. Between the lack of appropriate grammar and the long list of carefully studied and compiled euphemisms, its obvious you’ve spent a lot of time combing the internet for scandalously written articles about the things you wish you could do.

    Your lack of facts about the actual event speaks to your ignorance as well.
    I’ve also noticed, other than your blatant sexism (milksacks, really?) you don’t seem to mention any lesbian sex, focusing on so many vivid euphemisms for male on male that I have to surmise that your rabid homophobia more than likely stems from your own repressed feelings for men. Don’t worry, we all go through phases of hating ourselves and when you do come out you will find your new community much more understanding than the realm of intolerance and hate that you’re now so caught up in.

    Lastly, if a so called ‘STD party’ exists, I’m sure you have your facts wrong as well. A place where those who have STDs can go and enjoy sexual encounters with others so afflicted so that they can honorably keep others free of the disease is rather noble. I highly doubt it’s the ‘gotta catch em all’ Pokemon style swap meet you so fantasize.

    I’m sorry you find yourself in such a mindset against people expressing their free will and eccentric style. If only you could stop judging them for who they are and be yourself, maybe you too would find the freedom and love that comes from a community built on the idea of loving one another, not hating one another as your own community encourages. I wish you luck in your path of enlighten, and pray to all the gods that you find your way out of the dark.

    This all really simply makes me sigh sadly. As I can take this in only really one of two ways:

    Option 1: This is supposed to be a parody. Though, if it is, then Tyson, you are a very rather evil person. I cannot stress how wrong hate mongering to this level of deprivation is. Largely because there are religious extremists out there that will believe the hype, and may be moved to cause very real harm to many innocent people, simply for the words of a few. Many of you “followers” are just as much to blame as well, and I see no reason for such blatant hate against others that you have spouted on this site, other than to cause the death and/or serious harm to others, without getting your own hands stained with their blood.

    Option 2: You do seriously believe in what you say, that you believe that an event such as burning man is nothing but a way for the very incarnation of evil to infect the hearts of man, and for those that go to such events to supplement “the light of god” with the devil’s work. If that is the case, then you first need to actually go to such an event, and see that it is nothing of what you describe.

    As a side note, if you people are legitimate in what you say you believe, than you seriously need to go back to bible study. I come from a family of theologians, I probably know the christian faith better than most. Of how you speak, and the way you portray yourselves, you clearly know little of your own religion, and less of the spiritual beliefs of others. For one, christians do not preach hate, of the faiths that believe in christ as their saviour, the catholics are the ones that have historically been xenophobic of other religions. Christianity is supposed to be about the passive teaching of the word of god, and not the militant attacks on other religions that is atypical of Catholicism. Point in case, some of the spiritual beliefs you cast ill omen upon, are those that in all actuality propagate your own faith. As anyone that believes in the devil as a being of worship, admits the presence of god. So the attacks on devil worshippers is meaningless.

    Now, before any of you people that prefer to attack others spiritualism try to denounce what I say. I have this for you:

    I have a very specific set of beliefs, They may loosely be defined as any religion, as I have studied quite a few, and most of my core spiritualism can be defined by any of them. For those of you that would denounce me for this, and force me to let jesus in my life, simply put…

    … I would rather bare my own cross, my life is my own, and for a anyone, human, god, or devil, to say that I am wrong for doing what I believe morally to be in the right, is no deity that I would ever follow.

    Go read a book, better yet, a few, and truly become ‘enlightened’.

    This isn’t an opinion, it is backed up by evidence. Teen STD rates are higher in areas with abstinence only education and they become higher in areas that adopt abstinence only ed. while becoming lower in areas that get rid of it.

    So what actually increases STD rates in teens? Religion mandating its ignorance by law.

    There’s a strange hush around San Francisco and the Bay Area. There’s fewer people around, there’s a little less traffic, and there are parking spots where there are normally none.

    This week is the week of the Burning Man festival — a celebration of abundance, creativity, the arts — set within one of the most inhospitable places on earth, a place where NASA might test its Mars Rover because of the extremes of temperature, wind, solar radiation and dust storms.

    About two hours drive outside of Reno, Nevada, a city of about 50,000 rises up from the bed of an ancient alkali lake where nothing grows. For about a week it is one of the largest cities in Nevada, and then it disappears, leaving no trace.

    Residents of what is known as Black Rock City build incredible buildings and art installations. The creativity and ambition of many of the projects is breathtaking. Yet there is no commercial involvement or commerce allowed at the event beyond being able to purchase ice and coffee from a central location.

    There are several daily newspapers, several dozen radio stations, and hundreds of theme camps that offer experiences of many kinds, or simply a shady place to escape the sun or the dust storms.

    Despite the grandeur of so many installations there is nothing labelled “Sponsored by Google” or “Intel” or “Oracle” yet there are many people from those companies and more, attending every year.

    Burning Man’s culture of openness, creativity, self-organization, sharing, and innovation plays a key influence in SIlicon Valley’s culture, and one has influenced the other, countless times. The idea for the open source movement could very easily have come from the open collaboration that Burning Man started. There is a lot of common culture between the geek engineer community and Burning Man.

    Burning Man is part of the mythology of Silicon Valley, for example, it is how Eric Schmidt got his job at Google, by showing up one year and impressing founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, both avid “Burners.”

    Beach party…

    Burning Man grew from humble origins. It started as a beach party in San Francisco in 1986 and then moved to the remote and desolate high desert of Nevada.

    The early days were wilder than today, there were no rules. People would set up crazy things such as a drive-by shooting gallery. These days each ticket to the event warns in large letters that participants face possible death but there are lots of rules to prevent death and injury.

    But despite some rules, it is still an open event where much of anything goes. And people do die in unfortunate accidents.

    A blank canvas…

    The vast expanse of the playa — the empty space at the heart of Burning Man, acts as a canvas for spectacular art projects. My favorite part of the Burning Man experience is cycling across the playa and discovering new art seemingly coming out of nowhere overnight.

    The huge playa is like the Internet, a massive blank canvas, a platform for people’s creativity. And like the Internet, you often don’t know who is behind the projects, or even like some of the projects…

    The event is not a weekend getaway. Don’t think you can throw a bag in the back of the car and head off to party for a few days because you will likely run into serious problems. Even a little alcohol starts to dehydrate your body very quickly. And many people are hospitalized for thinking Burning Man is just another party town.

    If you plan and pace yourself then the experience can be transforming. You spend the day sheltering from the sun and the heat and the dust, and then Black Rock City comes to life as the afternoon sun wanes. The temperature cools and its night becomes as glittering and bright as Reno or Las Vegas.

    It has been about 5 years since I last visited Black Rock City and each time it feels very fragile as if it might not be there again next year.

    One of the most striking aspects is the lack of commercial messages for an entire week. You only notice it once you leave: the ads in magazines; the advertising on the radio; even the brand advertising on the side of trucks becomes very noticeable and oppressive after a week away…

    If you ever get the chance to go, you should take it. The event’s temporary nature and spectacle are a good metaphor for our times. And “leave no trace” is a great lesson we can learn from Burning Man.

    Dear God, I pray every day and night that you will protect me from your followers. How can a religion spread so much hatred of others. Religion is the No.1 cause of death in this world. Be-leave in my God or dye! That’s really a good massage considering your religion is determined by what religion your born into 99.9% of the time.

    Is this article for real? Because you really have absolutely no idea at all what you are talking about.

    The harshness of the desert brings people closer to a scene of community and love almost forgotten in today’s world. Yes there are naked people… Its really HOT!

    Radical self reliance, self expression along with acceptance and love of your fellow man or woman doesn’t sound bad to me.

    I challenge you to ACTUALLY go to the event. Stay the entire 7 days and see up close and personal the reality. Find people you bond with. Burningman has communities of every faith background. You can even find missionaries. The energy you are looking for will find you and bring you closer to your god and yourself then you could ever think imaginable.

    If you feel more comfortable bringing your bible and holding it with you all week with you, no one will judge you at all?(or even think its weird). But I warn you.. if your just going for sex or to gawk at naked girls, just watch how quickly you get shunned by the community.

      Son,

      The threat is very real. You must repent before the destruction of the world and God’s final judgment.

      I have forecast this date several times. I suspect my recent stroke was what was actually foretold by the Bible for the end of May (OK – June 9th) – but I have since prayed for guidance and a new calculator, and have determined that we have until October 21st.

      You mention “Radical self reliance,” by that you can only mean radical self pleasuring which, along with fornication with animals (that I have personally seen at Burning Man), is the surest path to damnation!

        Harold Camping, you should be ashamed of yourself for taking money from people and trying to convince them you have any clue of what God wants and says.

        You are not a true christian to take peoples money and leave them to have nothing so you can gain your agenda.

        God will judge you for your actions and he would not see you as a true Christian.

        You should give that money back to those people and suck it up and realize you were wrong.

        Only God knows when the end will come.

        Every generation all through out history, people believed they knew when the end would come and it never does.

        Leonardo Da Vinci had a way better bible calculation that predicted the world to end decades from now. I far would rather read his predictions than a money grabbing hate monger.

        Burning Man is nothing like this mans descriptions.

        Spreading, fear hate and trying to divide humans as black in white is not what God wrote about.

        When God said to not use his name in vein this is what he meant. Not to twist his words and throw around what you think he is as no human can grasp the divine.

        God just is…

        Please give back that money to the people who trusted in you and your vision and then I could call you a good Christian.

          God does not want anyone to use anything in their veins.

          That’s why Burning Man must be exposed for what it is – a drug-needle fueled Babylon and Gomorrah where sodomy happens.

          Leonardo Da Vinci was an instrument of Satan, he was a known sodo-man as well – and his helicopter never flew. Even though he took the King’s gold and never repented his earthly gains.

          I took no earthly gain from contributions. All went to fund God’s work on earth and towards a newer calculator. As for the dates given me in the Bible – the dates are now accurate.

    OMG are you serious? in my eyes to Burn the man is nearly, literally to Burn the essence of the being you call Satan. In his electric glowing face! people can come to the most desolate areas in the world and be who ever you want to be, to follow your spirit. Weather light or dark you are welcome and we love each other.

    Christian activists seem to have a serious problem with thinking that because their are dark beings that it is bad. Not so DOMINANCE is bad no FREE WILL is bad, with all your TV and structure and lack of free will, I think your missing something.

    Before you condemn something that you have no idea what it is to be Satan. I think you better figure out who Satan is, or would be. Might just find a mirror

    I cannot believe what I am reading!! I am outraged and almost speechless! I AM a Christian and I DO know the Bible. What you are portraying is outlandish. I have also been to Burning Man with my husband and son. NEVER did I once, see anyone doing drugs, eating babies, having STD sex tents or any of the crap written here. From reading what is here, i get the feeling that the author should start writing sex books instead, as it seems to be his calling. The manner in which he describes the events of BM are more sexually explicit than anything I have seen at Black Rock City! A true Christian would “never” be so judgmental. They know judging is God’s job, not mans! And shouldn’t Christian’s be the ones to “Love thy neighbor as you would would thyself?” What’s wrong with you man? Go to Burning Man and see for yourself what is really there and what is not. You will find yourself loved by every person there. No one judges… Everything is free or traded for, no one is out to burn anyone (LOL!) except “the man”, which is just wood and everyone knows there is no Devil worshipping or Bible burning. How stupid do you think these people are? BTW- Many people of “all” walks of life and ages attend BM. There are doctors, lawyers, scientists, etc. Religions of all kinds too. Jewish, Christians, what have you. Amazing how they can all get along, treating others as they would like to be treated. Judge not lest the be judged thine own self. Some say ignorance is bliss, I say in this case, it’s just being stupid! Maybe you could actually learn something from all those “STD Ridden Teens!”

    Dude… I’ve totally seen Jesus every time I’ve been to Burning Man. I even chatted merrily with him over watermelon and bacon one morning as he insisted that Bicycle Camp should be able to fix the flat tire he had aquired in his daily battle with sin. He was, afterall, Jesus. Bicycle Camp, however, totally reminded him that he was Jesus and should be able to fix his own damned tire through all that water to wine mumbo jumbo that he’s supposed to be able to do. Last I saw of Jesus, that day, he was lugging his bike through a mini-sand dune, cursing those guys at bike camp under his breath as his rear tire, unmoving in its great flatness, drug deep trails through the playa. Something about hell and strippers, I believe.

    If Satan is responsible for so much and apparently God fails to stop this how do you really sort out what God does and what Satan does? Isn’t it just as possible that the group of people partying in the desert is the result of some unknown initiative of God and angered conservative reaction the culmination of Satan’s own plans? You might say you know better because you’re a righteous God fearing man, but what if Satan is the one who wanted you to be that way? I posted this a few times to reiterate.

        There’s tons of christians that step foot into BRC. And not a damned one of them walks away thinking this crazy bullshit. In fact… They all seem to be quite enjoying themselves and communing with their god in their own way. Or is that a sin too?

        Crazy Christians destroyed our scientific and social advancements for almost 2 thousand years in the Western World. They’ve driven millions from their homelands, gang raped thousands in front of their non-believing husbands and fathers, burned the only books containing the language and history of an ENTIRE thriving civilization, and preach for the spread of STD’s and ignorance by keeping sex ed and evolution out of the classrooms of our children.

        Ignorance is the human condition. So is superstition, obv. However, the above mentioned atrocities (which are only a small pinhead amount in the grand sceme of religious based atrocities) committed in the name of God and Jesus Christ will far outshine Burning Man in terms of sins and foul deeds committed. From what I can tell the good citizens of BRC did not torch the mayans, did not burn innocent folks at the stake for seeming a little weird, nor do they sulk around cursing their fellow man under their breath for having some common fucking sense.

        REally… People with this kind of religious biggotry need to be shut down. Its just as bad as racisim and all those other things that we so hate… But because its God and most dumb Americans fear God (But don’t believe in unicorns for some reason) no one does shit. So I guess we will continue to breed hate and stupidity for generations to come.

    This article is brazenly fabricating these ‘facts’ based on an event that, while not christian-minded, does not promote or facilitate most of what is being pandered here.

    Add to this the usage of terminology like ‘male sin snakes,’ the author has no foothold in real Christian concepts of God’s view on sex. For a religion built on foundations of removing the plank from your own eye before removing the speck in that of your brother, I find it quite ironic the slanderous defamation of character that the Christian environment carries with it.

    This article is not Christianity, spreading God’s word, love, or commandments. This is an elitism not far off from the diarrhea spewed by the Westboro Baptist Church.

    It amazes me how Christians think that by slandering other people they’re doing good. Don’t they realize that they’re doing what the bible tells them exactly not to do.
    This article did not speak to me at all. Mostly because it was full of ‘Christian swear words.’ Like by putting it in the most dirty of sinful ways you can put it that means your still writing a clean and informational article. Informational, maybe… but impressive, no. Does it make me want to follow your way of life (the authors), probably not if that’s how you talk and treat everyone out of you circle of thought.
    You know that the majority of people we call good Christians have faults as well and God forbid you find out because you may curse them out like you just did these people. The people at Burning Man know the actions of their choices and God does too, so it is not your job to curse and slander them, but to give people the clean strait cold hard facts. Yes people get STD’s there, yes married people go to have sex and make art pieces of their own to show off. But you know what, some of the best people I know go to Burning Man and the reason why they are is because they have a general healthy interest in peoples well being. Vs. many Christians I know who really just care about their own salvation and only care about converting other to have them on their side or so they feel better about their walk.
    What you’re doing is not for God, it is for your own satisfaction.
    This article is very bias and I am saying that as a conservative Christian myself.

    Burning man is not near Vegas. Its in the Blackrock desert in Gerlach, NV. Tiny little town with nothing but land. Burning man can be a very spiritual experience for anyone who goes. There are so many various types of people that go there, all going for a different reason. Do people have sex? Yea. Do they do drugs? Some, sure. BUT there are people that make their own camp sites for worshiping. There are tents where people go in and “confess” their sins, or troubles and at the end the tent is set on fire, along with all the “confessions”. Burning man is not for everyone, and you are all entitled to your own opinion on the event, but without going and experiencing it for yourself, you have no room to speak so negatively about something you don’t even know about. Its a freeing experience

    This is ridiculous writing and maybe was written as a joke….the burn events are definitely not for you! Too bad you will forever live a shallow life. Should you have ever been to a burn event, you would leave there refreshed and ready to take on this crazy world–only to crave and wait patiently for the next event you could attend.

    As for the STDs, try looking at the shows on TV these days—which is actually a good reason to never turn the TV on.

    Peace and Love!

    There is nothing factual in this article, and the English language writing ability of this writer is very poor. Lines like “making sex sessions” and “you can be apart of” and “bubble bees” make this sound like it was written by a grade school student or someone new to English.

    omg ive never laughed so hard in my life
    i thought the article was hilarious
    then i started reading the comments
    im seriously lost for words…
    i keep coming back to try to finish this because i really dont want to offend anybody
    but this is just wow
    if you religious people have seen the things you say you have then i feel for ya cause you have the worst luck ever to be in the wrong place at the wrong time that many times
    i mean theres bad people in any group and when you get that many people together some weird stuff can happen
    but dont let those very few and very rare incidents make you think were all a bunch of satanic lunatics. most of the people at music festivals are normal working class people just trying to get through life like anyone else and like most people they just need a vacation every once in a while, and i like them choose to go to music festivals instead of the lake or the inlaws(thats for christmas).
    and to the party goers all i say is keep going and keep having a good time what these people think doesnt affect how awesome of time you’re gonna have and may already have had this festival season 😀
    so dont get mad here cause it doesnt make us look any better to these people, they’re set in there ways and we’ll never be able to convince them how good these things can be

    I am a middle aged professional mother of three and have been to burningman. This article has obviously been written by a horny fool with nothing else to do. Burningman is about art and the freedom of expression that it represents. See, Christians don’t WANT freedom, they want to control. It all comes from a place of ego, and assuming one knows everything when the only source of reference for that knowledge is a book written years ago by unknown individuals. It’s a STORY that you have to REPEAT to yourselves in order to remember. I could go on, having been born into a Christian family and still surrounded by such. Thank GOD I have found the truth and it HAS set me free. I see through your stories, and I have found that Christians ARE the evil they preach against. This kind of malarky is evidence of such.
    Burningman ROCKS… you should check it out. It offers freedom to be whatever and whoever you want, without discrimination such as that imposed by supposed Christians.

    You must be an ignorant person with a low sense of self worth to have posted such bs probably trying to get people all riled up to post some rants. In that regard, here are some facts: most people who go to Burning Man are not teens, in fact most years at Burning Man, the average age is probably in the 30s. While I cannot speak for others, I know nobody who worships the man, but instead either see it as an art display or when the man burns, it’s a symbol of setting yourself free..letting go of the old. One of the “idols” people create here is a temple..it’s a temple where people write notes to their loved ones they’ve lost.. a note to someone they need to say goodbye to living or not… a heartfelt note .. they bring things with them that represent the person they are writing to. During the week they put the notes on the temple itself or inside one of the beautifully constructed walls. At the end of the week, the temple is burned. It’s a symbol of letting someone go, connecting with them, saying goodbye. I myself write notes to my mother who I miss dearly and for one day out of the year I feel close to her again. I cannot go to Burning Man this year due to finances and the part I will miss the most is not being able to feel that closeness to her as nobody outside of Burning Man allows the spiritual connection. For one day a year I look forward, not to actually talk to my mother, not to see her ghost or anything like that, but to spiritually feel the connection I had with my mom and this year I will miss it. When is the last time you went through blinding white out conditions walking your bike through miles of desert sand against the wind completely sober to deliver a note to someone you love? I would do it year in and year out. To some like me, it is spiritual. I was lost down some very dark unlit streets and some very nice very sober people helped me. If I were in some dark unlit street in a city.. I would have been more likely to have been raped by some “drug slingers” than I would be at Burning Man. Yes there are drugs there, have you checked your local stores or streets, proms, house parties, alleys, fast food chains, schools, parks or the freaking sidewalk? There are many people doing drugs everywhere, so if you don’t do them, then don’t as it is not a requirement to enjoy Burning Man. Your enjoyment relies on your own freedom to enjoy it and if you do not require drugs or want drugs then be your own person and don’t do them. There are people from all walks of life at Burning Man, people who live paycheck to paycheck who bring nothing more than a backpack to millionaires in million dollar diesel pushers and all are accepted by each other. In addition, the people who create these pieces of art do not all burn them down. They spend a lot of time creating beautiful things to bring to Burning Man, spend a week or so putting them up let people enjoy them for a week and then break it all back down to take it home. Have you ever worked outside in the heat of the desert sun, during white outs, in the alcalai filled sand, in the rain, in the wind putting up a random lit up smile in the desert, putting up a phone booth in the middle of the desert just so people would see the humor in it, building a 40 foot tall steel heavily detailed woman or praying mantis, building a half a million dollar outdoor club, putting together a vividly decorated vehicle or organized something all year long for free, just so that for one week out of each year random people can enjoy it? Have you ever been walking depressed or just kind of blah and someone just does something to make you smile? Well there is more than one person who will do that for you at Burning Man and they will do it out of the kindness of their hearts. If you smile at someone at Burning Man a smile is returned, unlike in the city where if you smile at someone the liklihood of getting one in return is decreased by approximately 50%. Nobody is coming up to you groping you and having sex with each other on the streets. Are there random people that just walk up to you and start to make out with you? Ya, happens in clubs in the city too. Is there sex there? Ya, but guess what – it happens outside of Burning Man too. There are homosexuals there. Guess what, there are outside of Burning Man too. I would personally never burn a bible and I do not turn my back on God. God did not create the evil things in this world, man made choices good or bad and all choices cause consequences. God gave everyone a brain and a choice, and all of us choose to do things, including you choosing to write a bunch of bs to get feel all powerful. If you in fact are a God fearing and loving man, why then do you write so much hate about your fellow brothers and sisters? You must not judge others as you are not God. There are sinners there as there are outside of Burning Man too. Burning Man is probably one of the most racially, sexually, religiously, culturally and humanly diverse places of absolute freedom but expected responsibility and respect to visit during your years on earth and while it does occur in America, people travel there from all over the world. One should be so lucky as to have experienced life the way you can experience it at Burning Man.

    The revealing thing about this article is that it revolves around Christianity VS Burning Man and STDs Cases. Fine. State your case, but the “Christian” argument hardly seems Christian. If Burning Man folks are sinning, is it up to non-Burning Man folks to point the finger, or is it up to God? Correct me if I am wrong, but I venture the Bible would say: Up to God…NOT that the official version of the Bible is the last word on right or wrong, but that is the position of the article.

    Swapping STDS and animal sacrifices does not have my vote. (If it’s even true, and I do not know). However, I do know that the article seems (in my view) homophobic and one-sided. It fails to mention any of the benefits of celebrating togetherness in celebration of creativity and art, not to mention the inclination of Burning Man to inspire non conformity. The article’s gross, one-sided, oversight sounds fallacious if not malicious. Here’s a blurb taken from the article:

    Pretty much if you asked a gps to look for a group of ugly people…Besides the copious amounts of fecal flinging, sex addicted homosexuals, the clown dressed midgets and bath salt sniffing hippies, you can see a wide variety of God hating sinners.

    Irony: Jesus probaly resembles a hippy more than the person who wrote this article!!!

    You guys do a great job of proving church going folk are not only stupid but also bigots. People of the church or the most hateful, ignorant and blind to the truth group of people on the planet. I love how you bible thumping morons claim to know more than scienists about aids. Aids did not come from Africa. Get your heads out of your rectums and educate yourself on the real world. You fantasy made up stories and HATE you spread is a disgrace to man kind. If there was a god he would hate all of you for your incompetence.

    “The origin of AIDS and HIV has puzzled scientists ever since the illness first came to light in the early 1980s. For over twenty years it has been the subject of fierce debate and the cause of countless arguments, with everything from a promiscuous flight attendant to a suspect vaccine programme being blamed. So what is the truth? Just where did AIDS come from?

    The first recognised cases of AIDS occurred in the USA in the early 1980s (more about this period can be found on our History of AIDS page). A number of gay men in New York and California suddenly began to develop rare opportunistic infections and cancers that seemed stubbornly resistant to any treatment. At this time, AIDS did not yet have a name, but it quickly became obvious that all the men were suffering from a common syndrome.

    The discovery of HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, was made soon after. While some were initially resistant to acknowledge the connection (and indeed some remain so today), there is now clear evidence to prove that HIV causes AIDS. So, in order to find the source of AIDS, it is necessary to look for the origin of HIV, and find out how, when and where HIV first began to cause disease in humans.”

    Like any extremist brainwashed group, some of the so-called “Christian” views seen here are absolutely disgusting. Never seen so much racist, homophobic claptrap in all my life.

    When will the day come that we stop believing in magical men in the sky, come out of our caves and recognise that we – human beings – are marvellous in our own right, and it’s nothing to do with a supernatural construct we created thousands of years ago, to explain why the sun sets. Maybe then we can stop all the stupid wars and bigotry and actually begin to better ourselves.

    Meanwhile – you guys are idiots. Fundamental extremism is NEVER justified. You really are just a bunch of bigots – and if you are looking for things that are evil and misguided, I’d suggest you start by taking a good long look into a mirror.

If they’re spreadin’ disease to the teens, they’re doing it by mail, Bruce Edwards Ivins stylee.

It took about a month of church to pray the gay away afterwards, but hay its a choice after all. There were also a lot of colored savages having sex with apes, but crossing over to animals? NO WAY!
