I met Kirby and his wife at a pastors conference in South Africa. He is absolutely genuine. He looked about 35 years old when we met, but I was astounded when I saw the program - he looks about 20 yrs old.

The theme of the conference was immortality. I have also started cutting out food and get a lot of my energy by sungazing. I eat about 4 meals per week, and I have noticed age reversal -

Immortality is possible - only believe.

This was a very interesting story, thank you NAT GEO for documenting. It not only show the story of one man's journey but also show him imparting it to people and there reactions on how they felt after, clearly he has power that they received. I find myself enlightened to what true sources of power and energy there are around us. The whole show really shows that its possible to tap into it especially for people living in westernised world where foods and health issues have major collerations, where the solution is iin fact reachable and don't have to go into the wildness and solitude and leave home comforts to atain these energy sources.

Science today proves that by reducing food intake, people can live healthier and longer. But before all that, it's awesome how Kirby revealed a similar theory through a universal source where people can just walk into and experience. Kirby is real and the programme he has designed is amazing.

NG is really sinking into complete BS, isn't it? A while ago they had an article about deer antler velvet  where the marketing manager for the company that sells it was drumming up business in the comments. The article did have a few warnings about its effects being "unproven", but a large part of the article was directly copied from the company's promotional material. Furthermore, the link on the NG home page to the article used a the thumbnail picture of a deer also copied from the company's spiel. SHAME!

What is this doing on National Geographic? This is right up there with seances and Bigfoot. This practice is simply anorexia framed by religious delusion.

All of the gurus of Breatharianism have been debunked and are charging their followers small fortunes for their instruction. This practice has serious health risks, including death. 

It is unconscionable to post something which strongly implies that it is possible for humans to live on light and air. You should take this down or publish much stronger words of caution. How about this: Caution: FAKE.

I'm disappointed NG is putting this scam on their channel.
