Deep in Siberia‘s Taiga forest is Vissarion, a cult leader who looks like Jesus and claims to be the voice of God. He’s known as “the Teacher” to his 4,000 followers, who initially seem surprisingly normal. Over time, however, their unflinching belief in UFOs and the Earth’s imminent demise made this group start to look more and more like some sort of strange cult.

No, this man is not Jesus. However, it seems these people are living peacefully and in harmony with their surroundings. I find it difficult to find fault with what they are doing, even though their leader is not the Messiah.
And for the record from me, belief in aliens or UFO’s does not necessarily mean these people believe in something that is false. Also, every widely accepted religion teaches that the Earth will not continue on indefinitely.
