    Conspiracy Theories

    After a conversation with a fellow EPer on the subject of David Icke, I began thinking about the nature of conspiracy theory... First of all, I don't despise Icke. I like Icke. I don't believe he's a con artist because his story is not a product... he does not sell Snake Oil, he...
