Michael Jackson 'Obsessed With Cloning Himself'

Michael Jackson 'obsessed with cloning himself'

Michael Jackson was obsessed with immortality and the idea of cloning himself, according to his former chauffeur Al Bowman.

07 Jul 2009

The King of Pop reportedly attended a Las Vegas conference on human cloning with longtime friend Uri Geller, according to Mr Bowman.

Mr Bowman, who drove the pair to the event in 2002, said Jackson was particularly impressed with a group called the Raelians, who believe the key to eternal life is cloning.

Jackson's reaction following the conference, Mr Bowman said: "Jackson was very excited.

"He bounced out of that conference like a small child. He was smiling and on a high. I heard him and Uri talking in the back of the limo.

"He was talking about the prospect of being cloned. He grabbed Uri by both arms and told him, 'I really want to do it Uri, and I don't care how much it costs'."

The Raelian sect, who believe the human soul dies when the body dies, believe in recreating individuals from their own genetic make-up.

They have a scientific arm called Clonaid, which regularly holds fund-raisers in order to share its latest research.

Mr Bowman, 50, Jackson's driver for 10 years, told the Daily Mirror he remembers the singer talking about the cloning of Dolly the sheep in Britain in 1996, saying that the singer was "totally fascinated by it".

"Michael said he wanted a mini-version of himself cloned to carry on his legacy. He was hoping that Michael Jackson could live for ever," he said.

The poor, stupid SOB.

God rest him. Anyone who could be that interested, reportedly, in making a version of himself is beyond serious problems. He’s talking to Old Harry.

Well, I feel better now, he was in cahoots with Uri Geller and the Raelians. At least now we know the answer to “is he nuts?”

The guy who gave the ending prayer today was great! One of his sentences was “now the king of Pop must bend his knees to the King of Kings” (as close as I can remember). Couldn’t believe it!!

"Michael Jackson 'Obsessed With Cloning Himself'"

Stupid editors. "Clowning" is spelled with a "w".

I believe Michael Jackson is a case study for those who wish to see what's the worse that could happen, if a child becomes extremely popular.

Something clicked off in the guy in the late 1980s, and he just went psychotic.  By the mid 1990s his physical appearance was in the process of a complete
transformation.  He became a mutant human being.  Certainly his physical appearance has become monsteresque.  His resemblence to the tallented young man
that with others created the Thriller products was complete gone.  He was having problems being an adult.  He seemed to live in some fantasy world of children
and sugar plum fairies.  Beyond the concern for other people's children, my concern for the last decade or so, has been his children.  If they aren't screwed up
beyond belief, I'll never understand how they avoided it.

I'm just glad no children will be around this guy ever again.

13% is good.  100% is better.  You know you're going to do it.  Pull the trigger!  You don't have to pay it all now.  $5 now, $25 next week, $10 later... keep the ball rolling.

Monthly donorship is a good way for us to avoid having to do the Freepathons.  Besides, it's a great way to pony up in style.
If you're on the verge of becoming a monthly donor or you think you would like to up your monthly donation a bit, has Jim got a deal for you. 
Check this out.  There's an added incentive for a limited time only.  (Always wanted to type that...)


Thanks to Freepers who have been frequenting the Freepathon thread to ham it up with folks over there.  It helps to raise the visibility of the Freepathon.

Jump into the Monthly Donorship special thread too.  There are horderves, hot women with short skirts, and beer too.  Alert, the pizza just showed up!  It's a partaaaee...
Ladies, there were 15 lifeguards over there a few minutes ago.  (I'm beginning to feel a bit guilty... heh heh heh...)

Michael could have had eternal life. Sad, he didn’t choose that option.

Before the USA went crazy and agreed to let 13% of the population live outside the rules, suck the life-blood from the country, pervert it’s institutions, rule the country and demand that non-blacks live and toil to serve blacks, people like Michael Jackson made an honest living working in the carnival freak shows that roamed the nation.

After what Joe Jackson did to his son, cloning was probably the only way he could have reproduced himself.

“Sad, he didn’t choose that option.”

How would you possibly know what was in Michael Jackson’s heart when he died? Are you God?

One thing we know for sure...don’t we?

In 1000 years they will still remember Michael Jackson...but they won’t remember me.

....or you.

"He was having problems being an adult. He seemed to live in some fantasy world of children and sugar plum fairies."

I've stated numerous times that because of the physical and emotional abuse in his childhood, and because he had such an abnormal upbringing, being in the spotlight and under pressure from a very young age, his emotional growth/development was stunted... And since apparently he never got the healing he needed, he was basically a child in an adult's body. I could totally see it, and many others can too.

That is why I don't believe he was the evil, sex-crazed monster that many of you have made him out to be, he was someone who prefers climbing trees and water balloon fights to the normal things adults do. I just finished a class that was all about this stuff, I learned a lot about how abuse and traumas impact us later in life, and how important it is to get true healing and be restored to our original selves that God designed us to be.

I know this is not a popular thing to say on this Michael-hating mob mentality site, but the fact is, from a Christian perspective, he needed people's prayers, not our derision and misunderstanding. But with the exception of the few people who actually cared about him, the rest of us turned our back on him, and labeled him a freak. Well, he's dead now, and apparently many of you are happy about that. Apparently, MJ isn't the only person who desperately needs God... but he's the one his haters love to smugly condemn to hell, while not seeing the big log in their own eye.

Look, your take on this is as valid as anyone elses. I don’t see it the way you do, but I’m not totally sure you’re not right. Someone else said the other day, that they think the truth will finally come out about Michael now. If he was actually an abuser, someone will come out and explain what happened to them. If not, perhaps you’re right.

I’m not so angry at the guy for being a victim of his own phsycosis (or whatever), as I was worried about his continued exposure to other people’s children, and even the impact he would have on his own children.

Something really screwed this kid up, and you’re explanation is fine with me. It’s reasonable to think that.

Am I convinced he was abusing children? No. I still don’t think any wise parent or adult would sign off on children being left in his care, to sleep with him in his bedroom.

You have to protect children from the unknown. You can’t take chances.

That’s pretty much the way I see it.
