It turns out that my professor for an english class [specifically Print News Article Writing], is Dick J. Reavis, the guy who wrote The Ashes of Waco.
I did not know he was into conspiracy type things at all, and I was meeting him about the term paper assignment that was due at the end of the
semester. He asked me why I was taking the class, and I explained that I researched and wrote on conspiracy things, and I wanted to get better at
He wanted me to show him some of my writing so I showed him Abovetopsecret.com, and he was intrigued and revealed to me that he had written Ashes of
Waco, which is apparently pretty much the primer on the Waco incident. We talked about other things such as the economic crash, world government, JFK,
bilderberg group, etc.. and he was pretty knowledgeable about the conspiracy subjects.
As we talked he saw a thread about Alex Jones and asked me if I knew of the guy. I said yes, but I also stated that I was not sure about whether or
not I trusted him for information. So then he gave me the following anecdote:
Apparently while doing his research on Waco, Alex Jones was the last person that he interviewed. He described Alex as a very powerful speaker. Alex
showed him a charred piece of metallic remains with some sort of serial number looking thing on it and claimed that it was an incendiary device. Dr.
Reavis described it as resembling a D-Cell battery. So Dr. Reavis on his own time took apart a D-cell battery and found that within there are some
similar numbers, so he called up the company that produced it, I forgot what it was called, but it wasn't duracell or energizer, and asked them about
the batteries and the numbers. They told him that it just marked production information. All in the mean time Alex Jones was telling everyone that the
government had used incendiary devices..
So to trust Alex Jones or not?.. that is the question.
I'm not saying don't listen to him at all, I'm just saying don't blindly believe everything he says.
