Talk me through some conspiracy theories. Do you believe any? Or do you know of any really interesting ones?

I like me the Illuminati conspiracies. They can actually be almost convincing sometimes, particularly when it comes to the concept of A-grade celebs being victims of mind control and the way it explains bizarre behaviour, film clips and so on. I don't buy into it, but I find that particular alternate way of looking at the world really fascinating. I will sometimes check out the site Vigilant Citizen for what I consider to be an interesting, entertaining read. Something like this http://vigilantcitizen.com/vigilantreport/...nment-industry/

Anyone else? Or am I just weird...

I find the whole Pearl Harbour conspiracy theory quite intriguing - that Roosevelt and Churchill knew of the Japanese intention and did nothing to prevent it because they knew it would lead the US into the war - which Churchill definitely wanted - and - according to the theory - so did Roosevelt, but Congress wouldnt approve it.

It's interesting but on the whole I dont believe it.

A bit less heavy but I was recently telling someone about the Paul McCartney conspiracy where he supposedly died in a car accident and was replaced by a lookalike.

Oh what a good read! That's the sort of stuff I love. Completely mad, but you find yourself thinking, hmmm...

Meryl you say, BMJ? You know, I prefer the sort of conspiracies that don't increase the odds of serious illness spreading. I'm funny like that biggrin.gif

I have just had several posts deleted from their FB page, apparently Meryl has a problem with answering the tough questions.
I needed it anyway, my head was about to explode but I did learn that you can take a Homeopathic Tetanus Vaccine to treat tetanus.   Who knew ?  wink.gif

You guys are amateurs - don't you know that vaccines cause autism ON PURPOSE as part of a government conspiracy to control the population.  wacko.gif

My BIL is the biggest concspiracy theorist.  But still believe that homeopathic vaccs cover his child.  I love him to bits but sometimes I feel like stabbing him.

Come now, STBG, you're being a little harsh. Everyone knows magic water can cure diseases/vaccinate/whatever else you what it to.

Apparently governments put fluoride in water to brainwash the population and mind control us all.

Look at how sh*t our population is, the fluoride is obviously not working!

Conspiracy theories are fun until people take them seriously.
Then I just despair for the human race.

Amazing how good governments are at conspiracies given their track record in every other area.


Elvis is alive and works flipping burgers. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett say so.

Public schools are a hotbed of communism and produce only dole bludging layabouts who vote Labour, that's why Labour keeps bleating about public school funding, because the system is set up to keep them in power. BIL enlightened me on that score.

Only one of many gems, Pooks. I listen and learn.


Do you know that you shouldn't buy steroids in Australia because the government doctors them so they will reduce your testosterone - because they want the populace to be weak so the army can easily defeat us? You should go to Thailand and get your 'roids there.

Yes, indeed.

Them is a fantastic book.  I love all his books.

I used to work as a receptionist for a German classically-trained homeopath and she used to get so mad about 'homeopathic vaccinations'.  Hahnemann would have rolled in his grave over that nonsense  according to her.

Hitler escaped to Argentina after the war...

It's actually plausible IMO.

I'm interested in the conspiracy theories that comedian/actor Andy Kaufman is still alive.

Some interesting reading, not sure if I believe though.

lol. I think my likes of what must have been your posts were deleted at the same time.
Have you been banned ?

Don't forget just washing the wound thoroughly to prevent Tetanus and don't worry unless the wound has been in contact with poo.

They are becoming frankly more dangerous and crazy each day.
I hope there is something that the legal system and the Government can do to shut them down providing medical advice.

The link to Black Salve still on their page infuriates me.

They also subscribe to most of the conspiracy theories out there.

She's deleted a number of mine today, too. It must drive her nuts to have to appear in court, have evidence taken and for the transcript to provide an enduring record that she cannot censor.
