    They drank tea made from the volcanic mountain water near by that had certain levels of ARSENIC in it. This poisoned the flesh so no maggots would dare break it down!

    One day Ancient Aliens is going to have an episode called "Welcome to the Ranch Planet", where they talk about the main details of this case and what it means for current events.

    Operation: Crucified Serpent

    Even Jesus tried to tell us.
    "The Lord is our Sheppard."

    We have to remember, they didn't have a word for 'livestock' in his day. Those who cultured and helped humans develop our civilization, still do from behind a shroud of secrecy. They never left and maintain complete control while fooling us into thinking we are in control. They don't tell us about themselves because our role is to 'serve' them in horrific ways beyond labor. The truth comes with the fact that we are not on top of the food chain.

    Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction...
