Nothing like a good ole conspiracy theory

Today when I was with the Girl at our town's harvest festival, a man approached me from one of the many booths, and handed me a paper inviting me to come and see a free movie his organization is showing this week. The topic? That the US actually created and performed the entire 9/11 disaster. Okay..... I think I'll be skipping that particular free film. But it got me to thinking about some of the conspiracy theories flying back and forth over the internet and in our nation's history.

But look. The US Government has taken care of all that research you used to have to do to find a particularly juicy conspiracy theory. Aren't they just so helpful?

Honestly, check it out. It's got some doozy's there, including, of course, the plane didn't really fly into the Pentagon theory. And don't forget to check out the 4000 Jews story. That's a particular favorite of mine. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is also explained.

Do you have a favorite conspiracy theory? The Girl told me about an interesting one she heard about from Kyrgyzstan where a forest has grown in the shape of a swastika. Nobody really knows how the forest came about, but it does exist. Snopes talks about it here.


This seems to be the only known photo of the forest, as seen from this woman's window.

Oh girl...thank you for speaking out about those stupid conspiracy things that circlate through e-mail.

One woman who's the WORST about this? My future mother-in-law. I need to get her a daily feed for Snopes, but she won't read it, I'm sure.

Anyway...we're both on Blogger Chicks, and I wanted to come visit and say howdy.

Have a good 'un!
