Old Conspiracies, New Beliefs

Reader comment on item: [Michael Barkun on] Old Conspiracies, New Beliefs

Submitted by Bob Milligan (United States), Jan 13, 2004 at 12:03

Great article.

I have a friend who subscribes to most of the theories you mention.

She also refers to the contrails left by airliners as "chemtrails", which "prove" that "they" are conducting experiments on us.

Then there are the "structures" on the Moon and Mars, which NASA has studiously avoided showing in the pictures sent back.

The heck of it is she could be a good friend but for this goofy mindset.

Now, if you want to talk about TWA 800, I'm not so sure. I think the FAA report is a bit hard to swallow. If it was shot down, either by mistake or on purpose, the government has perpetrated a huge cover-up.

Regards,

Bob Milligan
