I haven't posted here in a while, so I don't know if you have discussed this. I am hearing more and more about conspiracy theories and was curious as to how you view them. To throw a few out there:



Chemical trails

9/11

are we alone?

will there an apocalypse?

global warming truth or fiction?

I guess what bothers me about conspiracy theories is that so many people accuse our government (most governments in the world) of being so disorganized and not trusting them with their lives, yet they think the government could be organized enough to pull off these elaborate schemes that would involves so many people, so much time and so much cost. Doesn't make sense to me.

Obama....Obama didn't vote for him but he scares me a little.

What about trying to depopulate? Anyone heard/ have thoughts on that? There is also a book called, "The world's last dictator" has anyone read that?

Or just read about the Bilderberg Group and who excatly is a member. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama met with them during the campaign. These guys are reported about in the media yet most people never hear about them.

Quoting Sarah:

Yeah that's my problem with most of them (except the moon!) i just genuinely don't think that they could pull it off. Technically these things could be done, but in reality, i don't think it would work!



I agree with you about the moon landing Sarah.



I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist myself.

Ah yes, the 9/11 happenings. The Pennsylvania flight that was deemed an act of heroism that could not have happened the way they said. They say it was shot down....there was no way a cell call could have actually taken place. I love how every aspect of a huge tragedy is dissected so that by the time it becomes public everyone is so damn confused they don't know WHAT to think.

On the cover of a National Geographic was the title, 'Are we alone?' The premise is that it is next to impossible that we are the only intelligent life in the universe. Makes sense.
There are so many theories out there!! AIDS is chemical warfare, along with other 'incurable' diseases.
Masons, Illuminati...it's endless. I find it captivating (even though it hurts my head to think about it sometimes).

I don't think it's necessarily the government, there are other very powerful entities that control things like....banks. If you are interested, like Jenny and I mentioned, Zeitgeist is a great documentary to watch.

Franklin Roosevelt said "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way." I believe there is truth to this. Not EVERYONE is government is incompetent...someone is obviously moving things along...

I loved Zeitgeist and loved Zeitgeist:Addendum even more. The third film will be out by the end of the year. It was all the stuff I'd already been mulling over all pulled together at once and it just rang true. I highly recommend it.



I don't believe the moon landing stuff is fake or chemtrails but I've seen way too much evidence to dismiss UFO's as fiction.



On 9/11 I've been going back and forth. I don't know what actually happened but I do know there are TONS of unanswered questions. Then you get info like this coming out:



Flight 77 Cockpit Door Never Opened During 9/11 “Hijack"

By Sheila Casey / Rock Creek Free Press



'Pilots for 9/11 Truth has reported that the data stream from the flight data recorder (FDR) for American Airlines flight 77, which allegedly struck the Pentagon on 9/11, shows that the cockpit door never opened during the entire 90 minute flight. The data was provided by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which has refused to comment.' ...



... 'This new evidence, showing that the cockpit door never opened during flight, is another nail in the coffin of the official story about flight 77. Clearly, if the cockpit door never opened, then hijackers did not storm the cockpit and herd the pilots to the back of the plane. The data, which originated from the government, does not support the government’s story.



Why would the government release data which contradicts its own version of events? It is possible they were just sloppy, or that they never anticipated that anyone would parse the data as carefully as Pilots for 9/11 Truth have. They may have also felt secure, that regardless of what damning revelations were contained in the FDR data, no mainstream media outlet would give them ink or air time, keeping the official story intact for the vast majority of Americans who receive their news from mainstream sources.



Rob Balsamo, founder of Pilots for 9/11 Truth, stated: “We have not located any independently verified data which confirms the government’s story. The FBI and NTSB refuse to comment.” Founded in August 2006, Pilots For 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals from around the globe who are investigating the government’s claims about the attacks of 9/11.'

Have you ever seen seen the movie Wag the Dog? If you haven't it's basically about the government covering up a scandal by focusing on war. Who knows? Maybe enough money can persuade people.....maybe it was a reason to go into Afghanistan. There is also a movie(documentary) out called Zeitgeist and that's very very interesting. That's about the Federal Reserve controlling much of the population. Theories have always fascinated me because of the 'what if' aspect. Why would someone orchestrate landing on the moon? It's always the why of it that baffles me.

Well, the only thing i am sure of, is that man DID NOT land on the moon!!!!!

Also watched a documentary about how 911 was engineered by the government, which was interesting, and i can see how people could believe, but i just don't think THAT many people could be persuaded to cover the whole thing up!
