Are Conspiracy Theories Real?

Truth told, we’ll never know. That’s why they’re called theories. But let me give you my take…

A friend once asked me, “Do you believe in those conspiracy theories?”

Dollar BackMy reply was simple, “Are there any bad people in the world? Do any bad people ever engage in bribes or dishonesty behind closed doors? Are there any bad people in government who take and give bribes in secret? Of course bad things like that happen. The question is: What bad things happen? And, the truth is, we’ll never know. But, more importantly… We don’t need to know. God already has things under control. So, don’t worry and live your life.”

A while back, I finally started to X-out the kookery video suggestions I got on YouTube. Triangle this, banking that… Who cares? Alex Jones isn’t someone I want to be like—and neither should you.

My dad was a conspiracy kook. So, he told me all the theories… well, until he got cancer. Then he decided it really didn’t matter. He just wanted to make the best of what time he had left. And kookery wasn’t beneficial to his health. In my mind, most of what he told me seemed to contradict itself anyways. He later agreed, before his passing. Praise God he got it right.

A few years ago I decided to review some of what dad said, just for old time’s sake. That’s when I found a trend. No serious conspiracy theorist can go on for too long without talking about the Rockefeller family having a war with intergalactic lizards. Oh, and don’t forget teleportating. I mean, it starts with banking, then, suddenly, someone shouds, “Beam me up, Scotty!” It’s almost cartoon-like.

Most of the time, Liberal kooks (as opposed to Liberal non-kooks) just want to be angry with Republicans, Right-wing kooks (as opposed to Right-wing non-kooks) just want an excuse to buy guns, Muslim kooks (as opposed to non-Muslim kooks) just want an excuse to hate America—Liberals and Right-wingers alike, and nearly all of the above (kooks, that is) really just want to be anti-Semitic and withdraw support from Israel. Please, leave the Jews alone. Those are God’s people. If you hate America, you’re a statistic, take a number. If you want guns, just buy them—you don’t need any conspiracy theories to justify it. There are enough other good arguments out there.  And, if you hate Republicans, just admit that it’s because of jealousy—we’re all so good looking. <joke, haha, joke, please laugh>

So, is it true? Are the anti-Semitic kooks right in claiming that there a handful of homosexual Jews from Hollywood running America’s secret/not-secret UFO program to wage war against the moon? Honestly, I hope not, but, more importantly, I don’t care—and neither should you. As a Christian, I know God’s on His throne and He wins in the end. As an American who believes in the political process, I know that there are enough whistle-blowers out there. No one needs my help.

As for the bribery and dishonesty in the world—no matter where it is—the only business any Christian has with someone else’s sin is forgiveness. If it’s true, then we must say, “It is also forgiven.”

Live your life and enjoy today. That’s what King Solomon said at the end of his life. That’s what my dad said at the end of his life. As for me, I won’t wait that long to say it. Thanks, but no thanks. The world has deeper problems and I’m just going to go about my business. I suggest you do the same.
