Conspiracy theories

After a comment on the Caledon group chat the other evening mentioned the September 11th conspiracy I thought it was appropriate to post this little cartoon.

Conspiracy Theories

Ah, but sometimes the art of it is vastly appreciable.

My uncle, may he rest peacefully, was a great adherent to conspiracy theories. Believer? No. But endlessly amused by the human capacity to pattern and rationalize, even with the most irrational of subjects. We communicated through Art Bell-isms, I would collect military secrets, he would pass me glass tubes on Mars. I would show him "proof" that the Egyptians were based in a culture high in alien technology, he would show me evidence of Mayan pyramids under New York.

Until he died, we had grand fun, while the rest of the family shook their heads at us. We were playing. They never understood. :)

Surely this isn't a rehash of that "we shot a cruise missile into the pentagon" idea, is it?

Edward - Thank you for the cartoon! I think I may develop a strong affinity for that site if all the offerings are as ironically true as the sample you have given us.

Rationally yours,
