Conspiracy Theories

Postby stomperrob » Thu Jun 24, 2004 11:54 pm

I get a kick out of listening to some of the wild conspiracy theories out there. Tonight on the Discovery Channel they did a show on those who claim the U.S. never landed a man on the moon, that it was faked. They interviewed all these guys and then showed how all their theories were pure fantasy.

Another one I get a kick out of is UFO's. I'm undecided, but open minded on the issue. There were some very credible witnesses to the Roswell incident that tend to indicate that at least some of the story was true. What I really have trouble with is alien abduction. Why is it that aliens coming here to study our race never abduct astrophysicists or any other kind of scientist, or any of our leaders, or people of prominence in any field of endeavor for that matter - why do they always abduct Ethel and Clarence, who don't have a dozen teeth between them, their combined IQ's don't reach triple digits, they haven't been employed since LBJ created the Great Society of social welfare, and they live in a trailer park in South Carolina?

Could it be that we just don't hear about the intelligent people that are abducted? ;-7

I don't know if Aliens exist, and if there are such things as UFO's, but the thought just sends chills down my spine. Stuff like that just freaks me out. I was probably the only one who thought "Signs" was the freakiest movie ever.

I have no idea if aliens exist, but I think it would be a little foolish to believe that we are the only intelligent life in the entire universe.

Your not the only one who that movie freaked out! It was very scary!

The main reason its scary is what Madison said. We most likely are not the only ones in the universe meaning that could really happen !!!!!!! :-o :-o :-o :-? :-? :-? :~( :~( :~(

You guys blame me for everything ;-7

And I saw this show a while ago and mentioned it in another thread with some fool that insisted the lunar landing was a fraud. They showed step-by-step how everything the conspiracy theorists used as evidence was nothing more than garbage.

Anyone see that Bryant Gumbel 2 hour special on Roswell a week or so ago? Quite interesting. Certainly the most intriquing and plausible of the UFO cases - there definitely were some witnesses who seem to be credible, believable and knowledgeable - something lacking in most UFO witnesses.
