Do people really believe that?? I've never heard that before


My dad, among many others I know, believe this.


Interesting...nebraska sounds like an interesting place have you ever met 311?


It's not that small. :-b

I've gotten very close to meeting them. I didn't recognize the guy standing behind this bus after a show we had been to. Turns out it was SA.


I met them one time it was pretty cool


I liked them before they decided they were from California, not Omaha. :-t :,-(

The mother of my best childhood friend was always worried about everything being satanic. The Smurfs were satanic, some video games were satanic, lots of music was satanic, etc...anyway, the peace sign was satanic...that was the first I had heard of it, but I've heard others express similar sentiments. I've always thought that was a ridiculous reading of the symbol.

It's my understanding that the sign was first designed in 1958 (as someone else mentioned previously) specifically as an anti nuclear proliferation or pro-nuclear disarment symbol.

Really? I thought it was first designed in 1958?


unfortunately my citation is an old Strategy and Tactics magazine from 1981 or so, I was busy at work and am heading out for a while tonight but I'm sure that crap like that is probably on the internet somewhere? I think that it was the graphic that was used w/o any 'peace' connotations owing to their unpopularity at the time/location....

i always thought the satanic sign was the pentagon, and then having reading/seeing the da vinci code found that too also meant something else..semantics shamantics, eh?
