I have finally figured it out and you might not want to read further if you ever want to sleep again. Here is my new favorite conspiracy theory with my own reasons why it could be true. Not all conspiracy beliefs have to be false. Just our luck that this one will turn out to be dead on.
A few months ago there was much talk among conspiracy bloggers that a 'revelation' was imminent by the governments of the world regarding something extraterrestrial. Something they couldn't cover up. Something that would impact the whole civilization and couldn't be hidden any longer. I got a bad feeling that it's an asteroid that is going to hit us some time in 2012.
The world's economy has been so bad as of late because resources are being re-directed by governments to save some part of our planet like say the 'arks' depicted in the movie '2012'. Such massive redistribution cannot avoid having ripple effect on the global economy. (how nice for me that this theory involves 'arks' because you all know how much I enjoy my Noah's Ark).
The Iraq and Afghanistan wars are necessary to control territory and horde resources that will be needed after the 'Event'. Afghanistan is a part of the world that is isolated (so few real witnesses to massive building projects) mountainous and contains vast, geological stable cave systems large enough for safe protection of people and the storage of materials.
On Sunday, discover has a special called 'The Last Day of the Dinosaurs' that depicts the day 65 million years ago, during which the comet that wiped out the dinosaurs hit the planet. More preparation for the planet to accept the news they are about to be given?
We know that there has been such an extinction event at intervals of 65 million years several times in this planet's history. How crappy that our ascendancy, like that of the dinosaurs, comes at the end of this waiting period.
Events and code words have been inserted into the Internet and media as a way to mentally prepare us for the news when, at some point, the truth comes out (and it will come out) before the asteroid strikes.
Again all of this is familiar to anyone who seen '2012' - another 'prep device'. Everything I am talking about was incorporated into that movie and in 'Armageddon' and 'Deep Impact'. Maybe these movies were part of a plan started 20 years ago to save a part of our civilization from the extinction event that is coming.
It's not just a good story idea for a movie that some filmmaker made. Those movies were made with a purpose in mind greater than just entertaining the audiences.
Of course I hope this doesn't happen. I have found the Earth quite an agreeable planet (as opposed to my other home planet choices) and I am grown quite fond on the ways that it sustains me. Would be shame to see anything bad happen to the old girl.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
