    Yeah, “randomly”. That’s what they want you to think.

    Oh, no! Aliens, bio-duplication, nude conspiracies… Oh my God! Lyndon LaRouche was right!

  3. rocketpjs says:

    I knew it!

  4. The fact that anyone needs a computer to generate conspiracy theories is just more proof of the war on creativity that the nation’s morning DJs have been waging for years.

  5. snagglepuss says:

    Yeah, right. Like I’ll click on some web link just because YOU suggest it. Me and my fellow ‘Mericans are wise to your tricks, pally.

  6. edgore says:

    It makes me sad, because someone will probably get killed over something very similar to what this thing spits out.

  7. These are just the facts They want you to know. They’re trying to distract you from the REAL truth.

    I was disappointed that I had to read several articles there before one of them mentioned us Red-Sea pedestrians. One of the perks of being a Jew is that it’s such a great way to convince lunatics that I’m somebody powerful and influential. If the nuts are starting to ignore us, I might go over to the Freemasons.

    ‘The reliability of these findings has been verified’

    Love it.

    The search function is especially helpful.  One search and you can learn the awful truth about BoingBoing.  Of course this comment will be removed by THEM, so act now!  WAKE UP SHEEPLE!

    “The Chinese character for sickle cell anemia looks a lot like the character for Pope Benedict XVI’s name– and it’s not a coincidence.”

  12. When I read that site, I hear it in Rush Limbaugh’s voice. How are they doing that? Is it something in the stylesheet?

    The problem with the war on conspiracy theorists is that it insinuates one is a fool to believe there may be conspiracies happening in this world.

    • wysinwyg says:

       Not really.  It’s not at all controversial that conspiracies have happened and still happen.  I think if you point out a few famous historic examples pretty much anyone would concede to that.

      The problem with conspiracy theorists is that they are very, very certain about the truth of highly implausible theses on the basis of absolutely no evidence for and often a great deal of evidence against.  The problem is compounded further by the fact that the less evidence there is for and the more evidence there is against their “theory” the more certain and vociferous they become.  In a world where it’s incredibly difficult to establish reliable facts about any kind of occurrence conspiracy theorists make it even harder.

      And they undermine their own causes.  The most convincing answer to a lot of the 9/11 Pentagon attack “there was no 757″ I’ve seen was a site put together by a 9/11 truther explaining that he wanted to debunk the “no 757″ theories because he thought they distracted from and discredited the more significant and plausible 9/11 conspiracy theories.

      Conspiracies do happen but conspiracy theories are almost always wrong, and more importantly they’re usually structured so that they cannot be falsified.  And again, this only makes it harder to discover real conspiracies.  Perhaps it would be ideal to have a different term for “conspiracy theories” to emphasize the irrational nature of many of these beliefs.

      • How about “conspiracy hypothesis”?

        • wysinwyg says:

          Hypotheses aren’t necessarily irrational and “conspiracy” is still part of the phrase, but I like the “not to be taken as seriously as a conspiracy theory” element to it.

          “Mirror fishing” just popped into my head.  Trying to explore a world of shadowy entities beneath what is in reality a thin, flat surface reflecting back at you.

          “Alex Jones isn’t telling anyone the truth about anything.  He’s just mirror fishing.”  I like it but it’s probably not catchy or evocative enough.

    Looked up the domain name the other day in WHOIS. It’s registered to a man with a PO Box in Langley, Va….

    Oh good, now I don’t have to make my own from scratch any more.

  16. Nash Rambler says:

    Man, do I miss Bat Boy and the Weekly World News.  As fun as this thing is, it seems a mere pale imitation.

  17. ToMajorTom says:

    Now it all makes sense. Someone auto-generates a conspiracy that gets passed around, eventually shows up in the in-box of one of my nutbar relatives, and is subsequently posted as truth on my Facebook wall.

  18. I used to read Conspiracy Magazine for fun, and I used to love stuff like this right up until the Oklahoma City bombing. Then I realized people believe the craziest shot for real and it lost its fun.

    I remember the card game Ulluminati had a ‘conspiracy theorist’ card that looked a lot like Noam Chomsky, the purpose of the card was to mask actual conspiracies.

    Taking bets as to how long it takes for one of these randomly generated pages to show up on beforeitsnews.com (and from thence to ATS of course).

    I gotta say…. I smell the mad-lib roots, here.
