This happens all the time. It's due to the fact that reporters no longer engage in any fact-checking and report rumors and hearsay as actual news. Perhaps a commoner with the same name as a celebrity cashes in his chips and there's an obituary printed, some moron reporter thinks it's the famous "Billy Graham" rather than the retired truck driver from Selma "Billy Graham" and doesn't do one second of research to back up their false assumption.
Sometimes it's also a hoax, I suppose. Doesn't matter the source, reporters believe anything as fact since they are pawns these days anyway.
Threads like this make me doubt, almost entirely, that there's ANY THRUTH in ANY CONSPIRACY.
In logic and rhetoric, a fallacy is a misconception resulting from incorrect reasoning in argumentation. By accident or design, fallacies may exploit emotional triggers in the listener or interlocutor (e.g. appeal to emotion), or take advantage of social relationships between people (e.g. argument from authority).
Then I would have to say that your reasoning contains a major fallacy. Because you think this thread is bull, then there is no truth to any conspiracy? I am reminded of those pious souls who insist that the entire Bible must be true, because if just one part is found to be in error then the whole book must be false.
And really, has anyone put forth a serious statement that these glitches in our personal record of reality are the result of some conspiracy? Maybe in your timeline they did, but in mine, they did not.
You stated your opinion of this thread several times, yet people continue to post, unhindered by your authoritative convictions. Must be very hard on you.
I have heard of several celebrities dying over the years and am quite shocked to discover through this thread that they are indeed alive, at least at Wikipedia. My list includes Bobcat Goldthwaite, Abe Vigoda, Tony Curtis, Ernest Borgnine, Gary Coleman, and Mickey Roonie. All of these could be simply mistakes in journalism, perhaps even with a retraction that we somehow missed. As someone stated, these actors are all past their sell date, so maybe when the report was found to be in error they never bothered to retract it. Now if Walter Cronkite or Michael Jackson or Timothy Leary or John Lennon or Martin Luther King, Jr., or even Richard Nixon was shown to be still alive I would have to reconsider that explanation as less plausible.
I am intrigued by some of the other types of "time slip" mentioned here, as I have experienced a few of them. Especially familiar was the story about the woman who knew where she placed the prescription, found that it wasn't there, even had another person confirm that it wasn't there, and then found it a few days later exactly where it should be. I have often told my friends that this is evidence of multidimensional bleed-through and been more serious than not. But it is also possible that sometimes the brain just edits out certain details around us, even common everyday items like slips of paper, car keys, bottles of nail polish remover (this one happened to my wife and me), etc. It's a disturbing thought that we could be so fallible as to not recognize the very thing we are desperately searching for right where we expect to find it, but it is possible. Even if some other person also can't see it, or remembers it the same as me.
I even remember remembering in my college days that a certain shop was on the west side of the street, only to find out when I went back to it that it was now on the east side. All of the other shops on that street were just as I remembered them, though. When I told my friends about it back then, I got a lot of weird looks.
Anyway, interesting topic! S&F!

It seems like every thread I have read, including this one, is always interrupted by someone invoking FOX News as solid proof of someone's inability to perceive reality.
Now that is crazy. Somehow FOX News is making people think that dead celebrities are coming back to life. FOX even goes so far as to broadcast days of coverage regarding Billy Grahams death. The federal government is helping FOX News by providing Presidents, Vice Presidents, and other dignitaries to participate in the hoax.
People experience events in an odd fashion and suddenly the specter of FOX News is trotted out as if it somehow explains everything. Just stop watching FOX News and the whole darn universe will get back to normal.
That does not explain what is happening. But it sure muddies the water and may prevent a critical bit of hearsay from being brought forward.
