I had similar observations and concerns some time ago: www.abovetopsecret.com... "The extreme theist created from this kind of conspiracy of spirit, is intolerant to anything not of their brand of theism. They have been deeply conditioned to believe their interpretation of Christianity (or Islam, or what-have-you) is the one and only true version of the dogma. The extremist may go as far as bombing abortion clinics, or strapping TNT to their bodies and running into crowded areas." www.abovetopsecret.com... "Herein lies the danger to humanity. Consider for a moment (please) you and your teachers may be mistaken. Will the overwhelming mass of humanity with the same root God, but conflicting beliefs (Judaism, Islam, Christianity), bring about end-times? Not as a result of prophecy coming true, but from a subconscious desire to see that prophecy happen, and hence, influence their actions." (I was "William" back then.)

These people take the bible as literal truth, and believe that they are doing God's Will. The conspiracy comes in because I feel that the powers in government today are trying to bring about the end times as their little book tells them. Is the war in Iraq just another version of the crusades, so Dubya can have some control of the 'Holy Land'?
