What the heck do you people think ATS is? Some kind of samizdat publication? It is one of the most popular forums on the internet. What does that tell you about the prevalence of conspiracy believers?
What most ATS members call conspiracies – alien visitors and UFOs, secret cabals that run or plan to take over the world, crop circles, chemtrails, faked Moon landings, HAARP and all the rest – are nothing but scraps from the trash-heap of popular culture. The people who believe in them delude themselves that they are a small, select insider group with special knowledge and understanding; in fact, they are data points in a vast, world-spanning demographic, that is fed and perpetuated by the media.
Katy Perry is laughing at them. And they deserve it.
Well I remember listening to some guy named Rik Clay who said something about there being a planned alien invasion happening at the 2012 Olympics... if you flip the logo a certain way it will spell out 'zion'.
I think all these artists are being told to include any type of references in their music of E.T's. Possibly to get us somewhat prepared.
However, the seventies stuff doesn't feature... a spiffy new human resurrected from a magical robot.
I'm pretty sure all that content directly pertaining to conspiracy theories was sourced from conspiracy theorists.
