Shit omelettes are on special offer at M&S in Burnley at the moment.


The crap roast dinners used to be good from there before they started using hedgehog crap instead of beaver crap.

If there was something in the Tamiflu vaccine that would alter a person's state of mind or cause death then someone would notice. As far as I can see the means, motive and opportunity for mass murder don't exist in this instance.

You can believe what you want, it isn't my place to object to your beliefs, just the same as I won't stop anyone from believing in God, Allah, Santa Clause or any other mythical beings. I might have an opinion on those beliefs, but I'm only going to point out what I perceive to be flaws in the tapestry, as it were.

If you simply choose to believe someone's ideas privately then clearly you have no agenda. If you seek to convert others to your way of thinking then you either have your own agenda or you have become the instrument of someone else's agenda.

Personally, I have no idea what I believe, which is why some of my ideas are contradictory and incoherent. The day I come up with a personal manifesto I'll have to stop picking at other people's ideas and adopt the defence of my own, which is infinitely more difficult.

Fair enough. Good post, that.

You know, I only think this deeply when I've had beer. There is a morbid sense of satisfaction from it. I think I'll go and crack one off and lighten up my day.

I'm struggling with this thread as the link on the first post just appears as a load of jumbled letters and symbols for me.

I remember David Icke when he was a TV presenter and started wearing purple gear all the time. I admit I've never properly analysed what he's been saying latterly but I certainly thought he was a total fruit bat when he first started pontificating.

As for Rumsfeld, he's a very bad man and is clearly guilty of everything he's accused of and a lot that he's not.

A few people I know, mainly my mother and father, remember Icke as the laughing stock on Wogan in the crap shellsuit. I asked them a while back, "you heard of David Icke? What do you think of him?" and they both replied "he's a fucking nutjob".

They've since changed their minds without any help from me. Icke makes a lot of sense, I reckon you'd like his stuff, arover. You seem to like a lot of the "life as we know it is a big con" kinda thing, much like I do (lawd, it sounds awfully depressing), but I reckon you'd dig a lot of what he says. His views on religion, global warming and American and English politics are particularly refreshing.

To pose the antithesis to the original direction of this thread: Why do so many people choose to believe conspiracy theories when there is a simple explanation that is usually more plausible than the concoctions of nutjobs?

Anything that causes severe trauma to the general population has an 'alternative explanation' offered by someone, but they always rely on isolated facts or using information out of context. How many of these theories are more credible than the official line?

Do these theories come from a need to make sense of events that people don't completely comprehend? Do people find solace in the idea that the world is out to get them? Or are people looking for a story that is more interesting than the truth?

An example; for a lot of people it is easier to believe that America inflicted 9/11 upon itself rather than accept that 19 hijackers could cause such devastation, and for others it is preferable to believe that this was an act of betrayal rather than an expression of how much the world at large hates 'Americanised' society.

Those on this board who regard the facts given to us by governmental organisations with suspicion, why do you accept so much bullshit rather than accepting what is more obvious?
