What You Believe Is Not Always Right

On 21 December 1954, a group of people gathered in a small house in Chicago. This group was not gathering to celebrate Christmas, despite the fact they were singing Christmas carols. They had gathered for a different purpose.

They were awaiting the arrival of an alien spaceship. The group belonged to a cult led by Dorothy Martin, which believed the Earth was going to be destroyed by a great flood.
