The world we are in, currently is in an info war. I am not saying I believe in every crack pot conspiracy theory. I am saying, that all theories need to be thoroughly checked by all the data available. This is true for the far fetched, and the very likely.
The current problem in this country is not that conspiracy theorists are all crazy, but, that the same scrutiny that they take, is not applied to the official media created story. Both sides over look massive points of data. Often you see the internet find something the media missed. That data often hurts the media theory, and all the media does is brush it off as outlandish, and, crazy or faulty. This is common place and accepted. Why in the world would we not want to beat every theory to death, to see if it can stand? Why would we not want to make it so only the strongest theories, backed by solid evidence remain? I watch the show Sherlock, and I must say it really tells you something interesting about how slow we are. To love a show like that, without applying Sherlock’s brand of thinking. He will believe anything, given the correct amount of data. We will only believe the easiest story that is reasonable or obvious, with small amounts of data. This is a problem both for the mainstream and the internet conspiracy nuts. The internet nuts want to always believe it is something not obvious, even if the data doesn’t support that idea. So in the end they have the same problem. Neither side act like journalists.
My point? Well it is a question. Why? Why not apply real journalistic principles to our mysteries? Knowledge of the truth should be our highest want, in the execution of justice. So again WHY?
