“Followers believed that Earth would be “recycled” by the year 2027, and that their salvation was an alien spacecraft travelling closely behind the Hale-Bopp comet”
Nowhere in any of the information that the class left behind was it stated that the earth “would be recycled by the year 2027” and in fact no date of any kind was given for the recycling. And of course the class never stated that their “salvation was an alien spacecraft travelling closely behind the Hale-Bopp comet”. Once again, what they actually said was,
“Whether or not Hale-Bopp has a companion is IRRELEVANT (emphasis mine) from our perspective”.
The article also quoted those who run the heavensgate website as stating the following,
“We joined at the beginning, in 1975, and have been with them for 45 years. There are us two here in Arizona and a couple more around the country.’’
According to the author of the article,
“It turns out these four Americans were instructed to tend to the website in the mid-1990s and have been doing so ever since, replying to emails and taking care of daily legal and archiving issues in the downtime from their regular jobs”.
Since it is a fact that Marc King was kicked out of the class in 1987 and Sarah King left the class shortly thereafter how could these two “have been with them for 45 years”? The class has been gone for over twenty-three years and they were both out of the class for ten years prior to that. As I’ve exhaustively documented they were described as “former classmembers” in the document that the class left behind in March of 1997.
“these four Americans were instructed to tend to the website in the mid-1990s”
This is an outright fabrication. It is most likely that the “four Americans” are the Kings as well as Rio Diangelo and JHN who actually is not an American (politically) but the last that I knew he did live in South America. Once again, as I’ve documented only RKK was specifically asked to “tend to” the website as he was given the discs to upload the last statements of the group and was told the following in his letter from the class,
“We are hoping that with your computer skills, you might choose to assist us for whatever length of time feels right to you”
RKK was also given a separate letter with the specific instructions for uploading the discs. NO OTHER former members were given that task or any instructions on how to “tend ” to the website.
Not to mention the letter to the ISP that spoke about RKK being the “all around computer person” who would be uploading the discs to the site. The Kings are not mentioned in this letter and Rio is mentioned but not in the context of “tending” to the site. JHN is not mentioned.
The Kings and OSC were given the Internet Account information in addition to RKK but the letter to the Kings did not contain the above statement about “assist(ing)” with the site and I highly suspect that OSC’s letter also had no such statement in it. Rio and JHN were not given the Internet acct. info. I’ve already documented (and was there to witness) how RKK had the HG website until he left in February of 1998 and since he was the only one who was specifically asked to “assist us” with the website the above statement in the Vice article about the “four Americans” is a complete and total fabrication.
As far as taking credit for “archiving” I’ve already told the story of how the Kings are still suppressing hundreds of the audio tapes that the class produced. As far as the “legal” issues go the Kings were slapped with filing a “frivolous” lawsuit by San Diego County when they tried to get the items that had been left in the Rancho Santa Fe house, items that they were specifically asked to leave to the landlord. They were ordered to pay all the court costs for filing this suit.
Once again the Kings could have told the truth about what happened after the class left but instead chose to lie about their role and once again they completely dishonored RKK by refusing to acknowledge that it was RKK and RKK alone who was asked to “assist” with heavensgate.com. They will be held accountable by the Next Level for their twenty-three years of fabrications.
