Shifty Eyes Origami butterflies with ominous message appear in Seattle parks

People are finding origami butterflies with ominous messages, scattered on the ground throughout Seattle. The folded papers have a puzzling warning about safety, but no one seems to know who is behind the campaign or what itís about.

The whois.com data for the website "allgodsmustdie.com" shows that it was established through DomainsByProxy, obscuring the actual ownership data. The creation/last modification date was July 31, which means that this has been in the works for a little while. There are a bunch of movies and video games slated for release on the 29th (none of prominence on the 28th that I could see); I don't know whether this could be viral marketing for a sneak preview to something tied in to Seattle.
