September 11 – Conspiracy Theories

I was going to write about September 11 today, but The River Walk has done it better.   –LD

THE RIVER WALK

Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. He will keep you safe. (Isaiah 8:12-14)

Read: Isaiah 8:1-9:21, 2 Corinthians 12:1-10, Psalm 55:1-23, Proverbs 23:4-5

Relate: One of my favorite movies during my college years was Enemy of the State. In this movie, a high profile murder was caught on tape. The person taping it is running for his life and plants the tape unawares on a lawyer named Will Smith, er… I mean Robert Dean. Suddenly, this average guy finds himself running for his life while deep operatives with all the power, technology, and budget of the USA on his tail. By an accident of chance, he has become an Enemy of the State…

‘I Stand Corrected’ (2013)

I’m still amazed, always, when I encounter conspiracy theories that say dinosaurs never existed, they’re just a massive hoax cooked up by “the corporations” or whoever. How did so many people come to think this way–if you can even call it thinking?

‘Conspiracy Baloney Aimed at Our Lord’ (2016)

I wonder if we’d be so vulnerable to conspiracy-think these days if our news media were not torpid, incompetent, and  biased.

Anyway, here’s a particularly objectionable wacko conspiracy theory…

Loopy Thinking Gets Around

I just couldn’t make up my mind which dreary news story to cover for you today. Meanwhile, someone sent me an email alleging that last month’s solar eclipse was a gigantic hoax perpetrated by The Government for some sinister purpose–possibly to set us up for an invasion by hostile space aliens.

Are there that many people running around loose who ought to be in psychiatric wards, or has this kind of radically loopy thinking become, dare I say, mainstream?

How do people wind up believing things like this? Well, heck, they believe “Hands up, don’t shoot,” and that never happened. But people who believe that probably want to believe it: it gives them an excuse to do things they otherwise would find it hard to excuse.

But what’s the payoff for believing a truly out-to-lunch conspiracy theory? All right, all right–I know there are people out there who believe that socialism really works, the Democrat Party is for the little guy, Global Warming’s caused by toilet paper, and you can be a boy one day and a girl the next, depending on how you feel. I am not sure why they believe those things.

Any way you slice it, there’s a lot of screwy thinking going on out there. Is it because our culture is so screwed up? Because it is that, big-time. Is it because the sages of the West have cut themselves off from God, preached idiocy to their disciples, and more and more aspire to be gods themselves?

I don’t think these funny theories are really all that funny anymore.


Official and Bona Fide Video of Honest-to-Pete Japanese Nephilim

“This is not fake!” an organization called “Conspiratruth” assures us. Well, you coulda fooled me.

That “giants in the earth” verse in the Bible (Genesis 6:4) has inspired an awful lot of twaddle. The Hebrew word doesn’t mean “genuine 15-foot tall giants who require special exemption to the laws of gravity so that their otherwise human skeletons don’t collapse,” but never mind. You don’t have to call them “nephilim.” You can call them “Annunaki.” They’re from Orion. There is not really any such place as Orion, but never mind.

The folks in this footage, otherwise occupied by some kind of military parade, seem to take the giant in their stride.

How many people, educated at great cost to the public and to their families, believe in conspiracy theories? In Annunaki from Orion? In “You can keep your doctor”?

*Sigh*…


Jesus Said, ‘It Is Not for You to Know’

I shy away from conspiracy theories, and from self-anointed prophets who come up with flashy interpretations of Biblical prophecies.

So when I read yesterday that the New World Order, NWO to fans, is fixing to nuke New York to stop tonight’s presidential debate ( http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2016/09/nwo-to-nuke-new-york-before-debate-3416801.html ), it sort of made my head come to a point. This prophecy, we are told, comes from “a Kenyan lady” who got it directly from God.

Just before Our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, after His resurrection from the dead, some of the disciples asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” As if this were all about setting up Israel with a king again: maybe they weren’t paying much attention to the Gospel.

And Jesus answered, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father hath put in His own power” (Acts 1:7).

What part of “It is not for you to know” don’t some people understand?

So tonight will come and go without New York City being blown off the map, and tomorrow it’ll be another conspiracy, another prophecy, etc., etc.

How many times did the Lord have to say that His return would take the whole world by surprise, and that we must “watch”–“What I say unto you, I say unto all: Watch” ( Mark 13:37)–and that we are to be found at our posts, performing our duties like good servants, when He finally does return–“like a thief in the night” ( I Thessalonians 5:2).

We can’t help wondering exactly when that time will be, and trying to figure it out by studying the Bible’s many prophecies.

But I think we have to find more productive ways to “occupy until I come” ( Luke 19:13).


A Clumsy Attempt to Explain Away the Jackalope

Don’t you love it? They show you all these pictures of the jackalope, and then they say there’s no such thing!

Everybody knows there’s a conspiracy to cover up the existence of the jackalope.

Next thing you know, they’ll be telling us there are no centaurs, either.

When everybody knows that centaurism is caused by Global Warming.


Conspiracy Baloney Aimed at Our Lord

We watched the new X-Files last night. Patty is crazy about The X-Files. I’m not. All that conspiracy stuff gets to me.

When the show was over–complete with liberal TV wallah’s definition of “a conservative,” Heaven help us–I checked my blog… only to find still more conspiracy theorizing, this time by a reader.

It is not possible that anyone could be so dense as to spend a minute or two here and not realize it’s a Christian blog. But anti-Christians have this enormous sense of entitlement that empowers them to bad-mouth Christians’ most sacred beliefs, and no manners, either–they’re like someone who barges into your living room and pees on your couch.

So this guy comes on to tell me there was never any such person as Jesus Christ. Nope, you don’t have a Savior. Jesus, you see, never existed. He and the whole New Testament were “written in secret, by the Roman aristocracy–” what? all of them?–“as an antidote to Judaism.” It was all a conspiracy, you dig? A Roman conspiracy against the Jews!

But, Mr. Conspiracy Monger, the Romans had no need to conspire against the Jews. They had this thing called the Roman Army, and when some little nation like Judea bugged them, they sent the Roman Army over to kill them. End of problem.

There is evil at large in this world; and although its face is human, it serves spiritual wickedness in high places.

And in the end, God wins.


Did the Queen Really Say It?

Here she is–what does she know that we don’t?

Supposedly Queen Elizabeth’s annual Christmas message that the world heard this past Christmas was most certainly not her original version of it.

According to various “sources,” the Queen, in her first version of the speech, darkly hinted that the royal family had Princess Diana murdered because “she knew too much,” and then delivered this gem: “I hope you enjoy your final Christmas” ( http://bible-storytelling.beforeitsnews.com/terrorism/2015/12/queens-2015-christmas-message-enjoy-your-final-christmas-2456776.html ).

Yowch! What did she mean by that?

Of course, the video of this version of the speech has been “pulled,” so there’s no proof she ever said a word of it. But meanwhile she’s got a lot of people bug-eyed. “What does she know that we don’t know? What does she mean?”

Will they outlaw Christmas? Will Moslems take over and ban Christian holidays? Is the world due to come to an end? Will Britain be vaporized in a nuclear war?

Or was it all just a nice gift to the conspiracy theory community?

Unless someone comes up with the video, we’ll never know. Even then, videos can be doctored and faked. But if you are able to imagine the Queen of England sitting in front of the cameras and microphones and fessing up that she and her family had Princess Diana bumped off, then you have a pretty lively–if unglued–imagination.


Welcome to Caitlin Middle School

Good morning, persons of assorted gender, and welcome to Caitlin Middle School. I am your principal. You may call me Glimmering Star. Always bear in mine that this school is gender-free for all genders!

In the spirit of Caitlin Jenner, who is now a woman, this is the school that believes that you and your feelings are more important than any so-called facts. I realize this makes it difficult for us to give out grades, but we’ve addressed that problem by giving everyone straight A’s.

In fact, this is the school where you decide yourself what are facts and what aren’t!

Here are some of my facts, which I’ll share with you, just to show you how it’s done.

The Lone Ranger was originally Japanese, and “Hi-yo, Silver!” was originally “Ohayo Gozeamasu,” which means Happy New Year.

America was originally settled by Muslims,  but there has been a big conspiracy to conceal that fact.

Global Warming on Mars is caused by SUVs on Earth.

President Obama is a Star Child from another galaxy–for all intents and purposes, a god.

The Bible was written by Jewish White Supremacist bankers sometime during the 1950s, to keep America from understanding the benefits of socialism.

Obesity is caused by prayer.

Those are just a few of my facts. Your facts may well be different. Just be careful they’re not too different, or you may be in for some rigorous sensitivity-training! On the whole, though, all facts are true facts as long as they’re Progressive facts.

And if that’s the only thing you learn here, it’ll still be enough to equip you to vote and hold public office.
