Reread diggerjims post. Over and over.
This thing became a scam, even if it was not a scam to begin with. And PLEASE understand this: When you are confused by what has happened, look for the simplest answer... you been scammed.
PLEASE understand people just what a Con ARTIST is. A dedicated conartist NEVER breaks cover, he is much more committed than any actor in front of a camera. A Con Artist is ALWAYS a NICE guy. He HAS to be, most people will not give money to people and projects they dont like.
The very signiture of a successful Con is that you never are sure that you been conned or not. This guy walked out with perhaps 100,000 to a quarter million profit, leveraged his life out of America and developed an international family who you must assume will help provide him with further exploits.
This website, this "project" was not a failure in any way. This thing is a frigging screaming success story from every angle.
Look. People love cows. Everybody loves cows but the grass. You guys are grass. You are complaining because you DONT KNOW if you have been grazed upon. Isn't that the finest sign of a great rancher?
You know our great God by his works. You believe in Him because you see his work everywhere. Isnt it just as easy or even easier to believe in the Great Con Artist?
You see his evidence everywhere, too.
