Darren Daulton draws a crowd at Ephrata Lions’ card show.

“Just because you can’t see something,” Daulton said Saturday, before an autograph session at the Ephrata Lions’ Club’s annual card and memorabilia show, “doesn’t mean it’s not there.”

Daulton perceives lots of things that aren’t conventionally “there.” His beliefs are an eclectic hodgepodge of metaphysics, numerology, time travel and even occasional references to the Christian God and Jesus.

Specifically, he believes people with transcendent understanding of all this will ascend to earth at the conslusion of the Mayan calendar (11:11 a.m. Dec. 21, 2012) and then move to a new plane of existence.

“I’ve never been a real religious person,” he said. “I do strive for spirituality. “I learn something new every day, but by no means is it easy.

“Think of all the movies you’ve seen in your life, even horror movies, whatever. You get to experience all of them.”

And here I thought only Michael “Psychotronic” Weldon had done this…

I think me means all those people who are living in their mom's basements will ascend to ground level.

Why? Is the new Star Trek movie coming out that day?

It's a testament to how fried my brain is that I read this sentence as saying that the references to "the Christian God and Jesus" were the nuttiest of Daulton's beliefs.

Let's say, hypothetically, that Daulton is wrong.

Hypothetically.

What does he do on December 22, 2012?

The Daulton thing has gone way past the point of being funny, and is now just sad.

This reminds me that Pete Maravich, when he had a house custom-built, made sure it had a lot of steep, pointy roofs so UFOs couldn't land on it.
