    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...

    Morality Free Zone

    Morality is the distinction of rights and wrongs in choices, with the aim of a more enlightened outcome of any situation. The inherit problem with morality is that every noun can be assigned the value of "Evil" or "Good". Now this alone is a contradiction that leaves grey areas...
