Hah. I honestly thought that would be the first one to be brought up!

It's another one of those that I don't necesarily disbeleive in, but the adamancy that the supporters display in linking Planet X to any number of unrelated things that puts me off.

Hm, though not exactly a conspiracy, I think I'll go ahead and mention the monthly "I-feel-different-today-ZOMG!-time-has-slipped!" threads.

I think that the greatest conspiracies are unfolded onto us by our parents..
ie; the easter bunny, santa clause, and the tooth fairy.. not to mention the boogy man, the monster under the bed, and all the other lies we grow up with.. somehow we always forgive our parents for this and then we do it to our own children.. don't really know how this relates to conspiracies.. except that all the adults were in on it.. and when you got old enough you became "in on it" too..
kinda sick if you think about it..
I used to have to find all the easter eggs 3 or 4 times because every time I left the eggs in a pile and left the room to find more, my Mom would say that the bunny came and got them again.. kept me busy and them laughing.. sucks..

Once again, we find our common ground. I like the way you think.

I think it's often the case that the people who beleive in any conspiracy feel that it's so important that they get other people to beleive, that they end up giving the general public more reason not to beleive.

I went through that. Friends looked at me like I'm nuts. Maybe I am. At least I still have a pair, I'd tell myself.

The "wake up sheeple" crowd irritates me sometimes. Like they always knew this hidden info about our f'ed up world.

Suffice it to say, I've given up trying to enlighten people. After all, what do I know? I've got opinions on this stuff. And feelings, of course. And it doesn't take Woodward and Bernstein to intuit that something's amiss.

But people have lives. Families. Jobs. Faiths. And so on.

And we, we have ATS.

The whole reptilian/shapeshifter thing. George Bush and his parents and Cheney are these special creatures that are older than time and rule the world. I mean seriously...if Bush/Cheney are the best these advanced and intelligent creatures can accomplish then I think the evolution skipped them by a long shot.

It's more complicated than just getting people to 'wake up,' that is an important thing to realize.

A revolution is 10% waking people up, and 90% waiting for the right time.

Anyways. There are two kinds of "sheeple." Those who beleive everything, and those who must disbeleive everything.

I can't find the link anymore but I read a very enlightening blog once, arguing that conspiracy theories were just another form of viewing the world in black and white. Some people cling to them, just like some cling to the religious theologies which separate everything into black and white, because they can't handle the shades of gray.

Yes. We all have our own "world-view". With varying degrees of influence from sources outside of our own insides.

I carried a lot of unnecessary resentments, to my own detriment, because of some of the more incendiary conspiracy theories out there. But I don't believe in fighting
with
, so I've learned to let some of that unhealthy stuff go. Ironically, I'll live longer.

Back when I first started getting inot conspiracies, there was a period in which I almost went insane, because I took everything to heart.

It was all, "HAARP and Chemtrails and Martial Law, Oh My!" It was a rough ride, until I learned to find more peace for myself.

Yes, friend, the chemtrail thing had me all fired up as well. Fortunately[...], my state'll soon be covered in the gray of winter for about six months. So I won't be seeing my daily dose, at least.

Wow. I've never found silver lining in one of our winters 'til now.

Maybe it's colloidal silver!

COlloidial silver is great stuff.

Once I had an abcess under one of myfingernails that got pretty bad. I wasn't able to go to the doctor at the time but colloidial silver and some other herbs cleared that up in days!

That's a new one on me. I'm not quite sure what to think of that.

Nice. I bit and put some of my hard-earned down for some. Then got home, did some more research, and found pictures of people whose skin went a ghastly bluish gray.

It's safe to say you haven't had such an experience?

Whenever I hear about colloidal silver, I picture this guy,



www.dailycognition.com...

But I hear he's otherwise fit-as-a-fiddle (albeit a rather blue fiddle).

( dang dial-up)
