    Of course, you know it never really happened...

    I wonder how a "professor" like this manages to keep his job of teaching impressionable minds...


    Florida professor who denied Sandy Hook shooting claims Boston bombings a drill
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    These theories are actually really common in some circles, sadly. What gets me is that while I could believe that any one individual disaster had ulterior motives behind it (and if you can't, take a look at some of the declassified CIA documents from the 40's/50's/60's), the idea that every single disaster is part of some genius master plan is a bit too much for me.

    Re: Of course, you know it never really happened...

    I read a bunch of these news stories, and have a supervisor who gives me these things to read, trying to prove his point, (No, I have no idea, I still don't know what point he is trying to make eigther...) I also have a friend who likes conspiracy theories, and still believes that the US government was involved in the 9/11 attacks. I have developed a fairly good filter for ignoring these things now...

    No, like most people who surf the net, I'm actually paid to do something completely different, but this is more fun.


    And yup, there is a never ending supply of foolishness that fuels my passion...




    I could almost buy that kind of thinking - or at least I would consider it in more depth - if the event took place in some isolated area. But it didn't. Anybody can go there and see for themselves that it happened. Perhaps he thinks the amputees were volunteers who agreed to have their legs cut off in pursuit of some evil goal.

    I agree with this. Sure I get this kind of thinking and in some cases I might even wonder my self at times if it's more isolated. But come on, Something like sandy hook and the boston bombings?
