Conspiracy Theory: Because Stupid People Need a Hobby, Too...

"The main thing I learned about Conspiracy Theory is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is often chaotic. The Truth is that it is not the Illuminati, The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Conspiracy. The Truth is far more frightening -- no one is in control. The World is rudderless." -- Philip Moore

"...if you assume a big enough conspiracy, you can explain everything. Including the cosmos, itself." -- Fritz Leiber
