"Last week, BBC2's Conspiracy Files  series "exposed" a man already known to conspiracy theorists as Muad Dib (the name taken from Frank Herbert's Dune novels) to be Sheffield-born John Hill (60) who lives near the Hill of Tara in County Meath and believes he is the Messiah."

By the way- I've been trying to find out what happened next- how did his appeal and (if that was unsuccessful) trial in England go?  Even your website, by the 'friends of Muad'dib', stopped updating well over a year ago without this crucial information... so it seems a bit weird to call out the media for not paying attention.  Even this 'messiah's' friends aren't interested enough to contribute...

OK ..........................

I have Googled the exact idea and found nothing to match ...............

I did find an article on the BBC website dated 30th June 2009 ............

With a tenuous claim:  "A document on Muad Dib's website reveals he believes he is the Messiah and that George Lucas wrote Star Wars after being told telepathically what to write, by the very "Force" to which the films refer.

No citation or reference .....................

And the main point as a throw away ..............

John Hill has now been arrested and is facing extradition to the UK on a charge of perverting the course of justice for sending DVDs of 7/7 Ripple Effect to the judge and jury foreman in a trial linked to the attacks.


The main issue here is why you can be arrested for sending a DVD to a judge who never looked at it but passed it to the police ....

And why can you be arrested and extradited for free speech or opinion in the UK and Ireland .............

And why THIS act brings no mainline media response ............

NOT whether Mr. Hill has been discussed briefly for making a video ..............

"John Hill... Yes, and you thought he was a M.uslim"

Why can't he be a M.uslim?  No reason a M.uslim can't be called John- although apparently thinking he's God might be a problem (most religious people look down on that kind of behaviour)
