This is a quick post that tackles the issue of conspiracy theories and the problems with them. Earlier I saw a good video that explained the problems with conspiracy theories and the differences between them an conspiracy which this blog writes about.
“Incompetence is a better explanation than conspiracy in most human activity.“
Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.

I am in the middle of working on a post about Liberty University’s Board of Trustees and its taking a lot longer to work on than I planned. There are a couple of other posts I am working to get up in the meantime while I chip away at the issue with Liberty.
Earlier I watched a video that looked and at explained the problem with conspiracy theories. It explains well the differences between conspiracy and conspiracy theories. This blog has dealt with conspiracy as that is criminal activity by a group of people. This video explains the problem with conspiracy theories and why people buy into them, why they can’t let them go and how they never seem to have an end. In my view conspiracy theories have gotten much worse and that fact that evangelicals consume them is not a surprise for me given the scandal of the evangelical mind. This is a good video to watch and I hope that people who believe or are inclined to look at conspiracy theories will watch this video. Its about 45 minutes long but it compares and contrasts. In writing about evangelicalism this blog also plans to push back hard against conspiracy theories as they are poison on the internet.
