SILVER SPRING, Md. — “Enough is enough,” said General Conference Director of Communications Jan Cunningham. “Never in the history of our church have there been as many conspiracy theories being spun about world news and last day events. We have asked the MythBusters TV team to create a series to expose this garbage.”
Cunningham explained that the MythBusters team had been chosen for their track record of explaining away erroneous rumors, myths, movie scenes, Internet videos and news stories.
“I am sick and tired of hearing that we may not know the day or the hour but we can know the year of Jesus Second Coming,” said Cunningham, “Or that the only safe place for Adventists to live is the Appalachian Mountains. Or that 1 in 3 GC officials is a Jesuit.”
The MythBusters Adventist myth busters programming will air on the Hope Channel and will tackle one commonly-shared conspiracy theory per week.
“The Adventist church has got more important things to do than to serve as a breeding ground for a bunch of paranoid crazies,” said Cunningham. “Hopefully these nut jobs spend as much time watching the Hope Channel as they do hassling the rest of us with their tract collections.”
