Not often, but sometimes, paranoid frantic psychosis has its advantages.

Certainly you'll agree if you look at the  HARDCORE evidence.  Your stupid, observable, explainable, repeatable evidence just isn't hardcore enough for the truth.

It's only perfect if the government people are actually lizard people from the middle of the Earth.

//Sure the moon is a hollow alien base as well. Doesn't everyone know that??

It's usually a combination of factors playing together, combined with a few non-catastrophic black swans that speed the decline of erectile function, er, I mean, the decline of empires.
We're becoming more and more flacid all the time.

DubtodaIll: HARDCORE evidence


Is that the one where the blonde is the detective and she has to get the redheaded suspect to confess using "waterboarding" and various other tantalizing torture practices?

No you deviant! The one with the huge cigar-shaped UFO went through that wormhole and came back out in broad daylight!

I know it is easy and funny to just dismiss this out of hand, because it sounds crazy, and sounds highly unlikely, but I don't.

I leave open the possibility that this is all an elaborate hoax, and if it is, they did go to great lengths with both time and money. And then Dr. Steven Greer, disgraced himself and gave up a career in medicine to con people.

On the other hand, this being is supposedly having it's DNA studied by an independent scientist to study it. So it is either time to put up or shut up.

If you don't know who Dr. Greer is, he is the one that organized the original "Disclosure Project" in May of 2001, where he assembled 20-some government, military, and other private individuals that went to the DC Press Corps to all tell their stories at one time, to the press and asked for congressional investigation.

You can watch the conference on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vyVe-6YdUk

So if this is a hoax, it has been going on for at least since then.


Another theme that he talks about besides aliens is the concept of "free energy". He says this is something we could be using and that the powers that be suppress it. Again, Iknow that a lot of people reject this out right because it violates the laws of physics, but I think there is something to this too. The laws of physics can change as we learn more.

A guy named Bruce DePalma, MIT and Harvard educated, invented such a machine, and had it independently tested by a Stanford professor, and was harassed out of the country.

 I'm not saying it's aliens....... But it's mother f-ing aliens.

It always amuses me when this comes up in conspiracy theory discussions.
But when's the last time a technological breakthrough in energy or engines was something "any Joe could reproduce"?

What is your take on the "N Machine", in the links that I posted?

The oil company conspiracy is peak oil and selling the public on the bogus idea that oil is scarce, while using a cartel to limit production. Oil and gas are not "fossil fuels," they are hydrocarbons that were made from the Earth like coal and diamonds. NASA found lakes of oil on Saturn's moon Titan in 2008. That pretty much cinched that it doesn't come from dead dinosaurs.

Except that its not the hydrocarbon we call oil, its liquid methane

"Obvious" tag is standard fare for conspiracy headlines, but this one made me lol.

Could it be any more obvious people?

Steven Greer one of the people featured in the video also has associations with a group called Space Energey Access Systems (SEAS).  This organizations was looking for investors about 5 or 6 years back to fund free engery research.  I think this is all one giant investment video.

Look if free energy was possible we'd be using it.  This crap is all scam.

Gee, wow.  You found blogs that make outrageous, unsupported claims that violate the laws of physics.

Simple rule: Anyone who could produce "free energy" would be the world's richest man.
