I thought I'd heard some pretty oulandish ones but I just read one in the forums that I think might take the cake!
Someone claims they are the reincarnated Jesus (second coming). That in and of itslef is not too outlandish but it gets better... this same person believes that Jesus (himself) was reincarnted into Einstein!! And so by the transitive property this person is not only Jesus but also Einstein! Ha hA! Love it!
Writer's are such silly people sometimes!
Did you read about the scientist who claims to be twice as smart as Einstein? His name is Albert Zweistein.
I am going to jump both of you here.
There is a limit when someone is obviously delusional. I don't mean socially delusional, I actually mean medically delusional. This is not a personality problem, it is an illness. The poster you refer to is quite obviously intelligent, but none the less ill. In that light, your posts are cruelty. They can serve only two purposes 1. To further cement those delusions or 2. The very very very unlikely event that you somehow shatter those delusions-when there is no professional around to deal with the backlash.
This is another human being. Stop having fun at the expense of another's illness.
i am sure the other people he shared his theories with have told him that he is wacko, and to no ill effect. I doesnt hurt him to tell him he needs to get help fast (although probably wont help either)
Actually Your quite wrong about my intentions Melissa. I thought I was clear in my OP.. I'm interetsed in hearing what is the craziest conspiracy theory anyone has ever heard.
To me, that one (OP) is so far the craiziest I've heard. No where did I suggest that we all gang up on one person and make fun of them. (what would be the point of that anyways?)
Will respect, Melissa, I have had schizophrenic relatives and friends, so I am aware of the mental illness/paranoia issue.
However, if someone puts something into the public arena, I think it's reasonable to respond, either with a factual rebuffal or with humour. Although, strangely enough, the nature of conspiracy theorists is such that if someone ridicules or argues against their theory, they usually see that as a back up for their beliefs.
Anybody else read "Foucault's pendulum" by Umberto Eco? It's a novel about the psychology of conspiracy theories. Fascinating.

I am by no means asserting that our government orchestrated 9/11, but I would like to know how these terrorists living in caves on the other side of the world were able to pull off such a precise chain of events?Your thoughts.

Do you think that Conspiracy Theories are worth investigating further?What is your feeling about the term "Conspiracy Theory"? Does this have a bad connotation and meaning to you?

I read last night that some on the far right are blaming the White House for Isaac. Yep, the Dems seeded the clouds to make the storm attack the GOP convention.

There is a conspiracy theory blaming a certain group of peope for the ills of the world. One of the latest "theories" is that the Jewish people "control" Hollywood, the banks, and are the "elite" of American society. Another "theory"...
