CAVALCADE OF WHACKJOB CONSPIRACY THEORIES: "The Jews Cause Cold Winters To Kill You."

Rick Gawonisgi

Yesterday, my 1.5 year old transmission died. So I got to take an entertaining 45 minute ride with a tow truck driver. On the trip, he told me about HAARP, and how the government and others are controlling the weather to cause world disasters. The conversation started as a genial chat about the weather. I mentioned what I had read about the recent cold wave being described as a typhoon in the Artic that reached 100+ mph winds, then explodes, which send cold air south (like it has any other direction to send it). These waves of cold air are what set some new records in cold and snow this past week. He proceeds to tell me that this was most definitely intentional. Then he goes on about HAARP and how some recent disasters have been engineered.

He predicts that NYC will be hit with one of these engineered typhoons. When the typhoon gets close (yes I know, this would usually be referred to as a hurricane, but technically they are the same thing with the exception of geography), a special bomb will be dropped in the eye of the storm, which will result in the power of the storm being directed at the city and destroy it. This prediction, he says, comes from two sources.

1) If you fold the new $100 bill a certain way, one side shows waves hitting a city, and the flip side shows a bomb dropping into the storm. He likens this to how you can fold a $20 bill and see the burning twin towers (I have not found either of these; if you find a link, please forward).

2) A movie produced last year supposedly detailed how this weather-based Armageddon will occur (Armageddon being used in the metaphorical sense and not the geographical sense like it is in Revelation). He believes this will be how Revelation is supposed to play out (someone had to be smoking something when they came up with that interpretation).

"Of course you can blame the Jews for all of this," ultimately he reasoned. First, he thinks they control all of the world governments. Second, I think he was referring to the banking house monopolies in the usual conspiracy theory tripe.

His theory for “why” was new to me: He believes that since they (the Jews) are still waiting for their messiah, that they must prepare the world for His arrival. Somehow, this requires a drastic reduction in world population, so the chosen method for reducing the population (or at least one of them) is engineered environmental disaster. My guess here is that he may have been referring to the 144,000. Originally I was wondering if he was a Jehovah’s Witness with that comment, but since he was saying the Jews were whittling the population down to 144K, maybe not.

So anyway, in case you haven’t come across this one, I thought I would pass it along. The following link is about the extent of my research on the theory. I read a couple of the links within, but tired of it quickly. I was disappointed that the links for Russia claiming to cause the Japanese Nuclear disaster did not work for me (it didn’t even show; the world government must have already censored them ;-) ).

Don't Talk About The Weather

Republibot 4.0's picture

I'll tell you about an environmental conspiracy: when there are 2259 peer-review papers all agreeing on human-caused global warming, to only one paper disputing it. And this guy's made out to be a nutter.

Has anything, anywhere, EVER been a 100% consensus?

http://io9.com/scientific-consensus-on-anthropogenic-global-warming-a-14...

Global warming is a "done deal," so nobody wants to waste his time trying to get the funding to do a study that might dispute it. That's all it is. Nobody's even looking for other possibilities, like it's a natural occurrance.

If you voice any sort of doubts about this, you get your throat jumped down and your spleen stomped on. Trust me, I've had it happen on a regular basis. The eye-rolling sarcasm of articles should prove the point that the Left has decided that this is their means of controlling the world by forcing us to live according to the dictates of the Stop Global Warming movement (which not so long ago used to be the Stop the Coming Ice Age Movement.) If you try to say that warming trends and cooling trends have been going on for far longer than humans have been burning coal, you get derided as an ignorant fool.

Personally, after that Arctic Frozone Hole last week--if that's how cold it usually is in the Arctic, I'd think they'd WELCOME a little "global warming!"

Climate Change

Well, I don't have any argument that the climate can change. There was an ice age - actually a whole bunch of 'em - and there was a hot age - actually, a whole bunch of those, too. Paleogeologists have told us that for most of our history, the world was considerably warmer than it is now. There used to be a huge equatorial current that ran from the east coast of Asia all the way to west Africa. About three million yeas ago, North and South America bumped into each other, and blocked that current.

Thus, for the last three million years, our environment has ranged from hot to cold to hot to cold, with nice teperate periods like the one we're now in. Now, whether or not humans can affect the weather remains an open question, but the fact is that our climate in INHERENTLY unstable. It has never stopped fluxing in the time our species has existed.

Being that our entire recorded civilization takes place in one of these nice interglacial periods, we assume that's normal and they way things are supposed to be, and we assume if it gets hotter or colder that's sick and wrong somehow.

Nope. It's just the way our world works.

HAARP

Kevin Long's picture

I just looked it up. HAARP has been shut down for renovations since May. It won't be powered up again until April. So clearly neither it nor the Jews had anything to do with the recent cold snap.

And perhaps to save time I should point out that "The Jews" didn't have anything to do with the last ice age, either.

Logical fallacy

>>I'll tell you about an environmental conspiracy: when there are 2259 peer-review papers all agreeing on human-caused global warming, to only one paper disputing it.<<

Because of course the reason this imaginary fellow's peers don't review his papers can't possibly be because his science is wrong?

Ah, he promised it isn't? Alrightie then ;-)

That brings up an interesting need

That brings up an interesting need. There should be some kind of "Lunatic Science Consumer's Reports" kind of thing, where scientists pick one website a day making lunatic claims ("Oil comes from butterflies who create hurricanes!" "The Jews are controlling the weather!" "Global warming is caused by people who aren't vegitarians!" "The world is overpopulated!" "Solar power satellites would become death rays used by the CIA," "The Aliens had marital relations with my hogs" and so on) and explaining why these things are horseshit.

I mean I'm all for peer review, though on occasion it can be a bit like "You blow sunshine up my ass on my paper, and I'll blow sunshine up your ass about your paper," but on the whole it's a good process.

Unfortunately, no one with any smarts and organizational skills is visiting the crazy sites and debunking them in a systematic manner, and maybe putting them on a big site like SNOPES (Though ideally one that's easier to navigate than Snopes).

What? You can't possibly believe that? Of course they'd say it's down for renovations! Hello! Have you been paying attention? It's a CONSPIRACY!

Sometimes you have to spell these things out or people don't get it! 

;-)

I just don't get it

Whups, sorry, you're right: the first rule of conspiracy theories is that all facts are lies if they don't support what you already know to be true. (Which raises the question of whether or not Young Earth Creationism counts as a conspiracy theory)

Did you know that Cheyenne Mountain gets several people every year asking if they can join the Stargate program? Or visit the SGC?

Oh, I should do that Smile

the circle of conspiracy theories

Kevin Long's picture

Ok, see if you can follow this:

1) Stargate is based on the idea of Ancient Astronauts, which is kind of a conspiracy theory if you think about it.

2) The TV Series are all based around the idea of a secret government organization traveling around the universe and fighting wars and stuff with aliens, while CONSPIRING to keep it secret.

3) At one point an alien living on earth starts a low-budget SF show called "Wormhole X-Treme," based on his experiences with the Stargate Program. The USAF decides that a fictional show about people doign exactly what the SGC does in reality is a very good cover story, which will instantly make anyone who knows "The Truth" look like a crazy person. The USAF therefor endorses and supports X-treme.

4) The alien in question is played by Willie Garson in 3 separate episodes, one of which is about the most hillarious thing ever done in SF.

5) Willie Garson now plays "Mozzie" on "White Collar" (Which is a pretty good non-SF show). Mozzie is a conspiracy nutjob.

6) At one point in season 4 Mozzie goes on a rant about how "Our government has endorsed a cornucopia of questionable programs: the Stargate program, MK Ultra, the Space Shuttle..."

God. Even in death, I love the fact that Stargate can still pull this kind of crap.

Not exactly what you're talking about, but an interesting page nonetheless: http://edge.org/responses/what-scientific-idea-is-ready-for-retirement 

Last year's annual question was also quite good: http://edge.org/responses/what-should-we-be-worried-about 

That is sorta' interesting.

Kevin Long's picture

That was sorta' interesting, though it's more than I could take in in one sitting. Thank you, days of reading ahead.

I particularly liked the one about "miniturization of electronics will NOT continue forever." This is something I've considered writing a story about forever: obviously you can't have circuits smaller than the electrons that flow through them, right? So what happens when Society hits the theoretical limit of micro-electronics?

Except For Fuel Injection...

Then we find ways to improve the performance of what we have.  Like we did with cars, planes, and a lot of other things that haven't changed much in the last fifty years or so.

agreed

Kevin Long's picture

Agreed. Thing is: Up until now the answer to every question has been "Make it smaller and pack more crap into it," which was perfectly valid. But eventually we can't make it any smaller nor pack any more stuff into it. So what happens then? Well, we learn to program more efficiently. You look at Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, the first of those games released on the Nintendo DS. You look at Black/White2, the 3rd Pokemon games for the platform, and there's a huge leap forward in graphics, worldbuilding, playability. Same machine, they just got better at using it. And the current game will still play on a DS, you just can't see the 3D, but it's pretty gorgeous, way better than the 3 previous games on the platform.

But artistry only takes you so far. So what comes next? How will we coax more from our limitation? We WILL obviously, it's just a question of how.

Kevin Long
