What do you believe when you don’t believe the truth? You don’t just stop believing, period. That’s impossible. We aren’t made that way.
In Zimbabwe, back in 2012, construction of a reservoir was delayed by complaints that mermaids were harassing the workers. The country’s president ordered “traditional beer” to be dumped in the water to propitiate the mermaids–or at least make them too drunk to bother anyone.
But you don’t have to be president of Zimbabwe to believe in mermaids. Here’s a YouTuber who has assigned himself the mission of “blowing the lid off this whole ‘mermaids aren’t real’ garbage the government has been spouting.” Disbelief in mermaids, he adds, is “a conspiracy made up by the government.”
What if the whole COVID panic, world-wide, and the stolen election caper here at home, are both part of a coordinated effort by globalists and other super-villains to impose their jive utopia on us?
If you know me, you know I hate conspiracy theories. But look at all the tricks the bad guys pulled in this election. Mountains and mountains of evidence–but you’ve still got the nooze media yapping about “President-elect Biden” and Fascist Fauci telling us all to do what we’re told and the government in Wales telling people they can’t buy books… and transgender, and Drag Queen Story Hour–
What if it’s all part of the same thing? Because all of these various abominations seem to have a hellish synergy. They go together very well!
Oh, but just think of how grateful Satan will be to them for carrying out his plans!
Uh-huh. A spider in a jar has better prospects than anyone who counts on Satan’s gratitude.
Well, heck, why not? The Russia Hoax was going on, at the time. And our civilization hasn’t gotten any saner since then. Still, faking a solar eclipse that was seen across North America–that’s really stretching it.
I happened to be leafing through the latest issue of Biblical Archaeology Review last night. With Herschel Shanks retired as editor-in-chief, the new regime has filled the magazine with ads for books to Reputable Bible Scholars Inc. alleging there was no such person as Jesus Christ–or at best, he was just a nice guy who ran afoul of the Romans.
I don’t want to get scooped on this scandal, so I can’t keep mum about it any longer.
This, we are assured by thoroughly unreliable sources, is The Big Scandal That Ties It All Together–Russian collusion, the Coronavirus, Jeffrey Epstein, emoluments, transphobia, dance fever, Roswell, and the 1919 World Series.
All of them orchestrated by Donald Trump–who, incidentally, is not really Donald Trump.
Now don’t ask me for details, because this time House Democrats are determined to keep it all under wraps. This time no one, not even Adam Schiff, knows the identity of The Whistleblower. This time no one will be allowed to know the exact charges laid against the man who calls himself Donald Trump. This time the Guilty verdict will be announced before the trial–if there even is a trial. There’s a Georgetown law professor who says the House can remove the president from office without a trial and without involving the Senate.
This is… The Real Bombshell. Forget the thousand stupid little nothing bombshells that went before it. This time we’re looking at Kaboom City.
It also has something to do with Climate Change, but that’s all I dare to say about it.
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?
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.
