Conspiracy Theories


I've always been attracted to oddities, the strange and unexplained tickle my senses the way nothing else can, perhaps I am a nerd, living in my own little world where wonders aplenty still exist. As a child I spent many hours exploring the woods and wondering about the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island, Bigfoot, UFOs and I still have the tattered copy of Frank Edwards "Stranger Than Science" that I discovered when I was 10 years old. The world of the unexplained seemed so colorful and vibrant to me and my experience in school of black and white rules, yes and no answers felt as through something was lacking. So as an adult I have found that not much has changed, the unknown still intrigues me and in our society there are still mysteries and wonders to explore.

I turn my attention to the conspiracy theories to be found on the Internet with absolute fascination, who knew such ideas were rapidily galloping through cyber-space, as though we were living in a Stephen King novel. Now, I think the whole conspiracy ideal has gotten a bad rap, the definition of conspiracy is an agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful or subversive act or a joining or acting together, as if by sinister design (American Heritage College Dictionary). We know people conspire, we know people and leaders have always conspired, it only takes a few moments of exploration into history to discover this fact, so to label all conspiracy theorists as lunatics and crazies is in itself, a conspiracy. I recognize that 100% is never true, so all conspiracy theorists can not be right, but all can not be wrong, either and even if 1% is truth, wow, an even bigger puzzle begins to emerge.

I have to say my favorite, thus far, is the former footballer from England, David Icke (www.davidicke.com) . The man can weave a story, his grasp of history is impressive and the tales he tells are mind blowing. He paints an unforgettable portrait of lizards, yes, lizards, ruling the upper class of our society. Mr. Icke claims the royal family, our own adminstration and many others in roles of leadership, are shapeshifting lizards with a taste for our blood. Sounds outlandish and outrageous, but spend some time watching his videos available on YouTube and Google and you will find yourself swept up in his vision of the New World Order.

Jeff Rense, a radio host, is the go-to place for all your conspiracy ideas (www.rense.com). He carries a little bit of everything from UFO sightings, paranormal activity, chemtrails, new diseases and 911 corruption. After spending a few hours exploring his website, you won't just fear the monster under the bed, but the monsters in the government, water poluted with floride, aspartame, diseases of all description and of course, the New World Order.

And then we have the master of all conspiracy theorists, radio host from Austin, Tx, Alex Jones (www.infowars.com) . Mr. Jones sees corruption on almost every level of government, he is best known for sneaking into the ultra rich retreat Bohemian Grove and recording what looks to be a mock human sacrifice carried out by upstanding and powerful members of our banking systems, government and newspaper communities. It's fascinating stuff and Mr. Jones also has a great grasp of history and uses it to impressively to connect his theories of the New World Order in a tight package.

These websites push the envelope on the hard to swallow, but once you get past the initial gag reflex, the ideas go down much easier. So the next time you're interested in a good scare, skip the theater and tune in to these websites, chances are you'll never look at the world in the same way again.

Love and Light
