Well, here we are with the second book of Weird & Wonderful On The Web. As I’ve said before, there are many weird and wonderful things on the Internet. Which is which depends on how you look at them. One person’s weird is another person’s wonderful. Some things are both wierd and wonderful. Or wonderful but weird.
Do you want to know more about Hollow Earthers, The Jedi Church, Leprechauns, The Wicker Man, and some of the other weird and wonderful things to be found on the Internet? If so, then this is the book for you.
In this second book I introduce a few more. As previously, I have given an introduction to the particular topic and one or two (or more if they look interesting) sites where you can find out more. They are only a start. there are lots more, so the best thing to do is to Google the topic and see what you get. I have to point out that many of the sites are written by people who fanatically believe in what they are saying or people who fanatically disbelieve, so take them all with the proverbial grain of salt.
Just because I give you a link to a site does not mean that I endorse or agree with what it says. Remember that the people running the site want to convince you that they are right, and in some cases sell you something, so they are likely to be biased.
Nevertheless, they are interesting, if only to show you some of the weird things that people believe in or do. I don’t pass judgement. I’m all for individual beliefs. It would be a terrible, dull world if we all believed the same things.
This book, the second in the series, by no means includes all the websites that refer to the particular topic that you might find. For one thing, there are too many of them. For another, they, like much else on the Internet, are constantly changing. Always, new sites are appearing and old ones disappearing into the lost lands of cyberspace. As information and ideas change the websites are changed to reflect what the owner considers to be the most up-to-date information which supports his/her view. Rarely do they add information which might count against their point-of-view. Just like the rest of the Internet, really.
In presenting the sites in this book I have not argued one way nor the other, neither for nor against any of the topics. This book is not a presentation of my opinion, nor the arguments for or against there existence. It is just a source book from which you might start if you wish to know more about them. It’s up to you to make up your own mind.
As they used to say on the Twilight Zone (remember that?) it’s “a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are those of the imagination.”
Download the book and read on, for an enlightening journey into the Weird & Wonderful world of the Internet where imagination runs riot.
