ABC: In a rambling manifesto on Lee’s website, believed to have been written by Lee, the writer rails against “disgusting human babies,” “parasitic infants,” and says people should “disassemble civilization.” The manifesto also calls on Discovery to “broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet.”

“I can’t seem to stop myself from this venture. I can’t think about anything else except this and this alone. Thanks for ruining my life Shannon.

I am ready to go all the way with this one. All the way guys!”

“I finished reading Al Gore’s book, and inconvenient truth a few days ago. It was very enlightening. However, at the end he didn’t offer any real solutions, as if changing a lightbulb would even put a scratch in the global warming epidemic. The book was half good, which means the part about science was good. The rest seemed like a commercial for sainthood.

I re-read Genesis the first chapter. It was obviously written by a totalitarian farmer.

Today I am at SDSU doing research. I am also going to go get my old apartment back so I am closer to Borders. I watched video clips of the icecaps melting from global warming as well as scientific exploration of the problem.”

– His religion: Atheist.
