My, the things people smoke! Good for a chuckle, though.

Hippy guy with vacant/stoned expression...

Handrwitten "book"...

Parody.

Eh, you're probably right -- a little early for April Fool gags, though.

If it is, I like it. It's simple, easy to grasp, and the easily misled would fall for it like ninepins.

Rock on, Hallettestone, if indeed that's your name! Just time next year's a little better.

Yea, the site looks too good.

The nuttery is on the same level as Ed Condrad and his site is a good reflection of his sanity.

The commenters at Pharyngula seem to think the guy is serious. Let me just say that if he is... he should seek medical attention!

But c'mon! Pics of rocks and a handwritten book? That just screams PARODY! to me. Or HOAX!

Have to stay tuned and see how it pans out...
