View Full Version : Conspiracy Theories

A week ago I established a thread on conspiracy theories the purposes of which was to demonstrate how if someone says something that people tend to believe that is the person's view, especially coming from myself a controversial figure, or if it falls on fertile ground it will take root. I was already expecting a similar thoery to my example re the tsunami victims to do the rounds just as one did after 9/11.

My purpose was to stimulate people not to accept stated views at face value and when they showed they had swallowed the bait to expose the fallacy of my theory so that they will establish critical thinking especially concerning the context of statements.

I now realise that my intentions could be misinterpreted and cause extra hurt to a people who have already suffered greatly throughout history and to whom I have sometimes went to great lengths and exposed myself to protect from further prejudice.

Accordingly I sincerely apologise if I have caused suffering to such people whom overall I greatly respect.

That is exactly what I was getting at and exposing, just as they were blamed for 9/11, I used the same terminology.

I admit I am answering this thread purely to have five threads in Non Chess with last posts as my own, looks neat.

The weakest theory is that Jesus rose from the dead just because his cave/grave may have happened to be empty. So many possibilities???

They want to ban Spongebob yet they show HTF... that is a conspiracy alright. :rolleyes:

The silly thing is I've seen better computer Flash animation than HTF with the talents of just one person rather than the team of people that work on HTF.

mmm... you could walk around it. Wait I thought some more on it and for my conspiracy theroy #2... you dont even have to walk south (ignoring hills and mountains). Think of the earth as a circle and no mater where you stand you are upright and no-one wants to stand on a slope right so you so you always stand where you are uprigthest (ignoring when your laying down but no one likes sleeping on a slope so that doesnt even count)..... sooooo the best place to stand is on the top of the circle. So the first step and every step you take... is downhill... and in fact the top of the circle follows you, so after you take a step it follows you around and you are back on the top again... you cant get away from it. Hence every step you take is downhill.

There I just made walking easier :P.

But what about if you have a shovel with you and with each step you shovel an increasing number of loads of dirt in front of you.

That would be true but for one thing. Walking down hill is only easier if you are walking from a position of higher to lower potential energy.

Assuming slices of the earth were perfect circles the problem is this. Imagine field lines of equipotential energy. These too would be concentric circles. When you are walking parallel to the equipotential lines (even if those lines are not straight) it is not an easier walk as you are not cashing in any potential energy.

I know you're not being serious, but sometimes it is fun to think about why silly ideas are silly. Or maybe it's just the time.

This is why you will never be a God. Even the sillyist person knows that a slice is a wedge and not a circle..... :shhh:

I was talking about the slice made a plane passing though the centre the of the earth. Take an orange, slice it in two and look at the shape of the slice. I think you will get my drift.

I stand by my orginal stmentpost thats why I put da :shhh: at the end
...... i know you ment slicing along them round lines that dont join rather then the ones that meet at the poles.. but tell me who doesnt think of cake as soon as they hear slice :ko:

http://www.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,4057,11866914%255E13762,00.htmlMany years ago the Scientific American published a story titled There is Nothing New Under the Sun in which they explained that the world's first wrist watch was owned by Alexander the Great.

It didn't have a face, numbers or hands -- it was a piece of cloth his alchemists had soaked in photo-sensitive chemicals. He tied it around his wrist for convenience and the colours changed with the intensity of the sun, allowing him to estimate the approximate time of day.

It was known as Alexander's rag time band.

My apologies to anybody too young to know the song (except Belthasar who seems to know lots of unlikely things) but the point of repeating it here is that one of the French magazines (the French language apparently doesn't contain words for humour or leg-pulling) re-printed the story, quoting the original spoof in Scientific American as source material.

:wall: :wall: :wall:

I had a similar experience a few years ago when the editor of the St. Marys Star rang and explained that the debate over the Australian Defence Industries Site at St Marys was getting overheated. She said, "Can you lighten it off a bit?"

So I invented an environmentalist named Kit Astrophe who discovered oil on the site (a la Jed Clampett) and gave St. Mary's full OPEC membership . . . and all this in a column called Off the Air.

You can read it here if you want to: http://www.users.tpg.com.au/adslpu7j/offtheair/goodoil.html"

She (the editor, not Kit) telephoned a week later and said, "I don't know what kind of fools read my paper but you wouldn't believe how many people have rung asking if it's true.

And these are the same people who get a vote at election time!

This is what I miss about Dozy! Anyhow, Axiom there seems to be some material here for you.

In SMH 21/12 article titled "conspiracy fears at fever pitch, about psychological background of such theorists, that seems to fit the bill for such people that I am familiar with.

so the mystery is solved as to what motivates them
