The anti-GMO conspiracy theory.

A great exposition of the harm done by anti-GMO environmentalists.

Environmentalism doesn’t mean reacting violently against any modification of the environment!

Luddites have never been successful in regressing the march of technology. Intelligent use of technology is the only way forward.


I’ve noticed that conspiracy theorists have some common vernacular. Has anyone noticed this? If you stumble upon a web site that seems suspicious, just search the page for: wake up, sheeple, take/get your head out of the sand, open you eyes, don’t believe the MSM (mainstream media), and lamestream media. If you find any of these expressions, it might just be a conspiracy theory web site.

By the way, yes, I am familiar with the etymology of the word “conspire”, and yes I do know that technically the official story is a conspiracy theory as well. Clearly, if you have half a brain, I am referring to the modern usage of conspiracy theory which would be an idea about how some situation came about which differs from the commonly held belief. Further, I also don’t think that all official stories are true (eg. Bay of Tonkin incident), but some theories are of course wackier than others. The number of aforementioned expressions generally determines the level of wackiness. Man, this whole paragraph would be unnecessary if conspiracy theorists wouldn’t nitpick everything.

I’ve seen Alex Jones in action from time to time, and didn’t really realise just how crazy he is — just pegged him as a bit of an over-the-top conspiracy theorist. Man, was I wrong: this guy is an outright nut. Clearly, from the video I’ve posted here, the guy believes in every conspiracy theory in existence!

Unfortunately, I don’t live in a place where I can call into his show, but I’d love it if someone took up the following challenge:Call into his show with some conspiracy theory you’ve just made up, something somewhat believable, and see how he reacts. My guess is he’d jump on your side immediately.

Possibly the stupidest and most disgraceful conspiracy theory yet: The Sandy Hook Truth Movement.

Yeah…. so, I can understand people being mistrustful of their government and government power, but this is ridiculous. Is this something that is really possible?

The government somehow used a psychotic person to shoot little children and not mention the conspiracy to anyone. Where do you find such a person? Craigslist? This is as close to literally impossible as a conspiracy can get.

Any normal person could not carry out such a heinous crime. Any crazed maniac who would carry out such a crime could not be trusted to keep it secret. It makes no sense.

And I thought 9/11 Truthers were being foolish…

Here’s a more in depth article.

It amazes me that I can never overestimate the audacity of stupid people.
