I was wondering the same thing. Here's what I quickly dug up.
The Outer Dimensional Forces (O.D.F.), also known as the Armageddon Time Ark Base Operation, is a UFO-believing religious group, anticipating a millennial apocalypse, based in Weslaco, Texas.
The group was founded by Orville T.Nodrog on September 3, 1966.[1] During the last decade the group have fallen back into obscurity. It is not even clear whether Nodrog, last seen in his nineties, is yet living or whether he has since perished.
The group's beliefs are outlined in a rather enigmatic document entitled The State of Time Station Earth. The group claims that, having "returned" in 1966, the Outer Dimensional Forces found that humans had destroyed the pristine Earth. The document discusses such topics as the humans' inefficient use of the Circle as the friction-generating wheel and the endangerment of mankind by the Armageddon Disease (that is, AIDS). They believe that great advances were possible for humans, by means of a "Universal Time Bank" of energy, but that the wicked governments of man had ruined this potential. For this reason, they believed that the purgation of the Earth in order to facilitate future, responsible habitation was inevitable and necessary.[1]

i've never known about any of these "CULTS" but i've always wondered why that place is always so closed off. i never knew that after my grandfather tried to buy off their property for walmart that they were so into having that "ark" that they tried to kill him, twice as a matter of fact. the man who tried to kill him was Mark Alan Lingenfelters, and they have a large history of anti government affiliations, as shown by Merlon Jr. Lingenfelters. apparently Orville T. Nodrog was actually gordon, weird why he would change his name to nodrog. and many elderly people do remember his name being such, and that he did sell space for his UFO. strongly potrayed as a looney in our town, he would later go on to establish a large UFO cult. i barely have been researching alot of this information and the only conclusion is to visit the place myself to get answers.

I also have a close connection to this event. I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather. Did they try to do something else besides the car? I just want you to know how sad I was when I found out about this. I thought it was funny that people could actually believe this crap but the more I researched the more serious it became to me. I hope he is okay, I too think I may have to visit that place to try to gain some understanding.

I am really sorry to hear that. Can you tell me if this was Mark Alan that did this? Was it AFTER he got out of prison? I cannot really find out much about him since the car bomb incident. I don't actually know if he got out of prison. I was hoping to find out that maybe he would have changed since it was his father that raised him to be that way, but I found many things on his family on the FBI website into 1997 and his brother seems to still be very anti-government. Once again, I am so sorry, I cannot imagine the pain and stress your grandfather must have gone through. It is terrible.

You are right I should get off of this topic. Iam sure you have a personal worry about this topic, good luck with your personal problem. I still think what i wrote is still a big mess. but then what do I KNOW, YOU ARE MORE IMPORTANT, AND i AM just a jerk. I am sure the family`s of the 39,000 dead think their loss is important to.

I am 36 years old and until know I am knowing what they are all about! All I knew was that growing up my parents would always tell us not to get near that place.
Also @ Jason I think we all realize all the killings that are going on in Mexico but this not the page to comment on about that!!!!

so hey guys i lived in weslaco as a kid and me and my sister would always hear rumors about that place. we would always pass by and stare at the house and at the gate because we always thought it was so bizarre because we have never seen anyone go in or go out. we always thought that aliens lived there or it was some type of government secret,maybe that they were hiding aliens in there or maybe even smuggling aliens i wonder if those people who live there have any groceries or if the eat. anyway me and my sister passed by there today with our nieces and nephews and we decided to google it on the phone and we read about the story. its super awesome that that place is there. so if they ever come to rescue the human race i know where to go.

That place is not interesting. It has screwed up a lot of people. It is sad not some quirky little harmless place. I can tell you one thing if a person needs to buy a seat on a spaceship to get to heaven how brainwashed would one have to be to believe that? Someone should save the people still there especially if there are children. Do you not understand the effects of these types of groups? Sheesh!
