I've always been fascinated with conspiracy theories. Sometimes more for their sheer creativity than their possible validity. I was listening to the Simon West's commentary on the Tomb Raider DVD (sorry, I actually like that movie). He mentioned how the "Illuminati" was chosen because they were a real conspiracy theory. So, I decided to do an internet search and found that there was actually a "secret society" called the Illuminati formed in Bavaria in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt. That's where the conspiracies begin: They infiltrated the Freemasons for recruits, and their symbol, the all-seeing eye in a pyramid, can be found on the back of the $1... They control international banks.. they "arranged" the French Revolution... Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were members. Their symbol can be seen in many places like the AOL and CBS logo for example. Although I don't really believe these things, I find them interesting just the same. Anyone else have any input on this or their favorite conspiracy theories? PS: These topics may skirt political and religious subjects... please be mindful of the HTF rulebook.
