How would the cult members behave, as individuals, if he personally accounted that...

...he was going to murder THEM?

Not in an indirect way, like denying COVID was spreading like wildfire, or vaccinations are deadly, but telling them to their face that they are evil and must be eradicated? Would they resist, “oh no, sir, you’re wrong!” Or would they happily jump into their graves because the orange pistule is god?

There used to be one page. Accessed from a tab at the top of every page,

that led to a page that listed ALL forums. If I didn’t see the one I was looking for among the groups they were filed under, I could do a “find” with my web browser. I haven’t yet located any page on DU4 that lists ALL forums. Such a thing would be very helpful, I think.

Hmmm....I did a search for “forums” and found this page:
Which does list all forums but not in a user-friendly format, especially on a phone. And I still can’t find any link that leads to that page or a pretty version of it.

Gorgeous photo, and beautiful land below! You found a particularly spectacular location.

Thank you for sharing. Whereabouts on the Rim is this? As you very likely know (but for the benefit of those who don't), it's a very long escarpment, running at least a couple hundred miles from west of Sedona, eastward into the Gila Range of western New Mexico.

It could also have something to do with greater human population on the planet,

crowded into places that are more easily habitable, such as river valleys and flood plains.

Could also have to do with increasing fraction of the population living in terrible poverty.

If there's torrential rainfall in a place no one lives, or lives downstream from, we don't care so much.

It doesn't matter.

If people around the world look to the west at sunset, whatever their time zone, they'd see the sun setting, sitting out there in the direction of space that the sun is in relative to Earth on that day.

Similarly, just before dawn, on a given day, people around the world could look to the northeast and they're looking out in the direction of space where there just might happen to be a comet.

Caveat: This may not be true at extremely high latitudes, beyond the Arctic or Antarctic Circles, at particular times of the year and what patch of sky you'd like to see, since the Earth itself might be in the way of that direction.
