Like the liberal who always directs our attention to a future Utopia, a re-entry into Eden as it were, the conspiracy theorist always looks to the future for the great culmination of some multi-generational scheme complete with the starting and ending of wars, economic failures, and now terrorist activities. The internet provides fertile ground for these cockamamie schemes to take root, grow and then flourish.
A meaningful coherent conversation with those who believe these things is almost impossible once the topic "conspiracies" comes up. Just watch the Video, they say. There's only one problem. I have been so subjected to propaganda for so long I have developed somewhat of a resilience to it.
There has been one You Tube video out for some time called "Small Change", or something like that. It supposedly shows how 9/11 was an "inside job". It only shows how most any conspiracy can be made to sound plausible if the right things are focused on or ignored. It leaves the viewer with lots of questions, but they always have an answer... always.
The outing of the hoax of global warming is a wonderful example as to why I don't believe in these elaborate multi-generational conspiracies-someone always spills their guts. But if I were a conspiracy theorist, I would simply respond that the conspirators intended for the outing to happen, for nothing happens that the conspirators don't intend to happen, and nothing doesn't happen that they intend to happen. If this sounds like an attribute of God, then it shouldn't surprise you that "conspiracy" theories appear to function much like religions.
As for me, I do believe in a multi-generational conspiracy in the heavenly realms. I believe that there is an enemy of our souls who is orchestrating the un-renewed minds of men to carry out his elaborate plans. I believe that there is no neutral ground, Everyone serves one side in this demonic conspiracy. And I believe that current events attest so well to the fact that "the prince of the power of the air"1 is controlling things that many are buying into a fleshy shadow of his existence.
Just so all who come by here know where I stand.
Note 1. Eph 2:1-3
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
