    Do you believe in the conspiracy theory

    Do you believe in the conspiracy theory that some catastrophes deliberately happen to divert attention away from another worldly event ?

    Conspiracy is best carried out when in an aura of chaos. In that environment, things can happen in an orderly fashion according to plan and schedule while the majority of people are distracted by some other event or some side aspects of the event in which the conspiracy is taking place. I have trouble with conspiracy theory as a "general theory"...I think there are principles and concepts which work but when you get into the aspect of it in which an entire government is involved in a cover up as say in the Kennedy Assassination, I think you have taken the concept too far.  In the the Kennedy Assassination, there was certainly a conspiracy.  That conspiracy was mask in the ineptitude of those who investigated the case and their inability to connect the dots of various circumstance.  The inability to prove the case was a function of the ignorance and naive aspects of the society and law enforcement of the time.  In the end, the football got fumble far too many times to ever put together a solid case.  On the other hand, there is not a better case for one to study than the Kennedy assasination in terms of conspiracy.  One day, it will become a historical fact that a man in high office was behind the plot which played out in day it will come to the surface.

    Just with view to the history there always have been natural catastrophies and wars and so we can assume that there will be catastrophies and wars in the future. Just think about the future San Francisco earthquake, vulcano eruptions, storms etc.

    So if something happens then people automatically see a proof for their conspiration theories wether it is true or not. Well and if scientists predict before that things will happen then its part of their profession.

    Just think of the weather guy, he knows the weather of tomorrow and he knows how the climate will change, is he part of a conspiration?

    In each century there have been conspiration theories. Already long before freemasons, illuminati etc. existed. Just think only a few centuries ago people were burned, because others thought that they are witches and warlocs.

    Probably it is in the human nature to blame people for things that they cannot understand or havenĀ“t learned better.

    The word Illuminati means in English the enlighted ones, so a very spiritual term referred to religion. And we live all now in the Age of Enlightment, just look in google.

    So not a conspiration to harm people, but the path to bring knowledge and science to mankind.

    All the people who visited school are now the enlighted ones, the Illuminati. We all know now the evolution, natural sciences etc.

    And it is upon every individual to use knowledge. So if you live close to an earthquake area or a vulcano of that is known to cause problems in the future, then its your choice to stay or to leave.

    You cannot blame then anyone if something happens.

    So we all know that the poles are melting and so the seal level will increase. As consequence the US coasts will be flooded at the mid or the end of this century as well half of north Europe will drown and all across the world the coastal areas will sink. And there is then your reason for war, because all these areas contain many inhabitants and produce food.

    So people need a place to live and food to eat, and if necessary they will fight for it. Very simple.

    The definition of conspiracy isn't necessarily negative in nature.We conspire all the time.If,the definition is planning to do something.We all conspire with others in order to do something positive as well as negative.We seem to only look at the negative when we use the word conspire.

    One dictionary simply states conspiracy as
    "an agreement among conspirators." Plot
    This is another mis understood word.

    If,by conspiracy - you mean 911.I do believe it was a group.The question is what that group was.If,it was Osama Ben Laden then we should have gone after him ,instead of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

    I'm also sure there are many secrets certain individuals in our Government would not want us to know out of fear of what we would do as a result and if our Government planned 911 they  would welcome a violent reaction from the public to justify the use of the military against the people they deam conspirators or unpatriotic. I recall the Sedition Act  that was push through early in the 19th century to shut certain individuals up when they should speak up instead of cowering If we truely  have freedom of speech we shouldn't be afraid to speak up.

    The original question was a bit off. "The" conspiracy theory? There are many! There is no "one" theory.

    Were some catastrophes used to distract us from other events? Certainly.

    Look up General Lyman L. Lemnitzer and "Operation Northwoods." This is a classic case of "false flag" operation, planned, but never carried out by our top military guys. They wanted to murder American citizens and then blame it on Cubans as a pretense for invading Cuba. Needless to say, Lemnitzer's plan was not approved. In fact, he didn't keep his position as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

    And 9/11 is another classic case of "false flag." We went to war multiple times and trashed the Constitution and its liberties all because of this one event. It was the reason, but it was based on a lie.

    I've written on this, but you can find the experts (scientists, engineers and architects) at

    The highlights?

    The potential energy (PE) of all 3 buildings was insufficient to perform all of the work done on those 3 buildings. The kinetic energy (KE) of collapse at near-perfect free-fall consumed most of that PE. And yet the KE was 50x the original PE available!

    The extra KE involved:
    * Bending or breaking the dozens of floors of cold, undamaged steel beam supports below the impact zones on the towers and above the fires on WTC7.
    * Complete pulverization of all the thousands of tons of concrete
    * Blowing that concrete dust all over lower Manhattan
    * Heating that dust as felt by people near the collapse

    Al Qaeda did not have weeks of unfettered access to the 3 buildings (one of which included CIA, SEC and IRS). But the Bush family ran the WTC security company! And on 9/11, Bush, Sr. was meeting with the Bin Laden family!
