Do they really put a corpse in the Wickerman before burning?

This might seem like a a goofy question. And I don't believe it but someone told me that they put a corpse in the Wickerman before burning it? That can't be true is it?? That would be really weird. Stranger things have happened I guess.

Since Burning Man is held on federal land one of the hidden BLM stipulations allows the Air Force to use the burn to dispose of Greys and other Area 51 experiments.

I've never heard of them putting more than one corpse in it, so I guess you must be correct. I think the person must stipulate this in his/her will, and then once a corpse, win a lottery for the privilege.

Corpses aren't a good sacrifice. The sacrifice must be alive.

The gods are hungry this year. Without an official sacrificial victim, IT may reach its claws out and claim any spectator. Maybe you?

Don't be ridiculous... Every veteran burner knows that Burning Man itself is an Area 51 experiment...


Oops.. Wait is that still classified?

That's how it works with the old gods in south america.
Events are held.
People put themselves at risk, usually on a mountain, and somebody usually goes.
No ritual to it, choosing or anything, I suppose because of religious repression.

From reading this thread I'm not sure if everyone knows that "Wicker Man" and "Burning Man" are completely separate things.

They are both different, but neither is the same.

Not really necessary. Each year I see people jumping into the fire all by themselves. However this is discourage as then somebody else much take all their shit off the playa.

You are aware that the religion in the film was fake, even in the film?

In the plot, a scientist created the religion for social control.
