    Anyway. Yeah, conspiracy theories I generally pan imediately.

    The world isn't dark and sinister and secretive. Well... it is, but no more so than is normal. People need an enemy, whether real or manufactured by their own diseased imaginations.

    I was pretty mind-blown when I first saw Loose Change. Like, to the best of my knowledge, most of the stuff in that movie seemed to check out pretty-well at the time. About a day or two later my friend tony helped me work through the stuff and realize that most of it is made-up or misrepresented and I felt a lot better.

    I'm kind of embarrassed now.

    Ejaculating furiously onto a film reel while you are vigorously pummeled about the head and shoulders with a solid oaken staff would produce more intelligent results than Zeitgeist.


    It is a catchy name though.

    I got to spend half of my Christmas break listening to how religion was invented by the man to keep people down (I'm not even making this shit up). I might not believe in a religion but I also don't feel compelled to talk to people about that for 45 minutes on a daily basis.

    It's ok. Remember when I called you because I was reflecting on Watchmen and I didn't think any large scale massive disaster like that could happen without people questioning it and finding out the truth, besides nothing like that has ever happohmygod 9/11! And I freaked myself out because I realized I was getting dangerously close to Loose Change territory.

    Robert Anton Wilson had a neat book with descriptions of a lot of conspiracy theories called Everything Is Under Control: Conspiracies, Cults, and Cover-ups. It doesn't take itself seriously but is a pretty cool catalogue of nutty things.

    On another note, one actual conspiracy that was discovered was P2, or Propaganda Due, and it involved Masons, the Vatican, shadow governments, etc. Godfather III used it as inspiration.

    Propaganda Due [propaˈganda ˈduːe] or P2 was a Masonic lodge operating under the jurisdiction of the Grand Orient of Italy from 1945 to 1976 (when its charter was withdrawn), and a pseudo-Masonic or "black" or "covert" lodge operating illegally (in contravention of Italian laws banning secret lodges, and membership of government officials in secret membership organizations) from 1976 to 1981. During the years that the lodge was headed by Licio Gelli, P2 was implicated in numerous Italian crimes and mysteries, including the nationwide bribe scandal Tangentopoli, the collapse of the Vatican-affiliated Banco Ambrosiano, and the murders of journalist Mino Pecorelli and banker Roberto Calvi. P2 came to light through the investigations into the collapse of Michele Sindona's financial empire.

    Pretty much all conspiracy theories are logistically impossible.

    Of course 9/11 was not an inside job. Whoever believes that is retarded.

    Yet, there is no doubt in my mind that the Bush administration, given the means, would have happily sacrificed the lives of 3000 Americans if it had furthered them in any way.

    Well... ORGANIZED religion was used to rule-over people for a long time. I'm pretty sure the people who ran everything truly believed in most of what they were preaching, though.

    What I really like about most theorists is that in their heart they believe that people like the President or the Pope or whoever is some kind of serial villain who is conscious of their own evil deeds and does things on purpose to control the masses like some kind of evil overlord.

    Like, if you busted into the Pope's chambers and outed him he would explain everything about how the church is a sham to control the sheep of humanity and how nobody would ever stand in their way before putting you to death in an elaborate fashion.

    It IS great; I think it must have been your recommendation here that made me look it up, so thanks for that.

    Mike Collins and Gene Cernan were especially great, but talk about a group of people it would be hard to follow. "Oh, yes, we're just a band of dashing USAF officers who also happen to have multiple degrees in the sciences. We risk our lives, are in general fairly handsome, and oh yes, we've been to the moon."

    The lizard men are real, though.
