this discussion will either flop on it's face empty, or take off flying. either way, I'm sure I'm going to incur the wrath of a few people. I spent the last three days at prison planets website and reading a lot of alex jones' work, watching videos of him on youtube and other places among other things. Now, I know there is always a little mystery to some things and sometimes a grain of truth to a few things. But this guy is honetly under the belief that EVERYTHING that happens in this world is all part of one big conspiricy against the free word. According to his philosphy and if I follow this correctly, cell phones were invented to kill off the honey bee population as part of a greater scheme at population reduction, this of course all part of the comming martial state in this country to welcome the new world order. There is nothing that happens that is not part of this grand conspiricy. I thought is was at first a few specific concerns but after spending days on this website, apparently, it's EVERYTHING that goes on. the tsunami and katrina, weather warfare.....9/11...govt pretext for martial law....vaccinations.....a way to slowly poison the population levels down...fema is building camps everywhere...I'm going to lake francis to check out ours next week , i have to see this one for myself, According to Mr, jones' authoritative knowlage (basicly taking everything that happens and lumping it in) there is nothing that just happens, it's all part of the plot. Strorms, wars, natural disasters, national policy changes, attacks, tourist site renovations, lights in the sky, protester arrests, all part of the plot. I looked at this man objectively at first because I believe everyone has legitimate reasons to believe what they do. but after a while whith this man I slowly came to several devided conclusions. Either, A.) This is a man who has a lot of time on his hands and REALLY REALLY needs help or medication or just a long vacation on an island all by himself where he is not a danger to himself (we'll give him a boat, don't want him to feel trapped or exiled) B.) This is a man with a briliant imagination who is trying to sell DVD's and gain national fame and crewate a personal media empire C.) I'm just a blind sheeple who can't see the truth because I'm spoon-fed false information by the mainstream media and I'm going to wind up in a fema camp under marttial law before I ever realize it. D.) I'm part of the plot In any case, I guess this man is living proof the first ammendmant is alive and well. Ok folks, you can start hurling the bricks at me.

He doesn't seem any different from the homeless guy standing on teh corner shouting about the end of days. Yeah, he's crazy. Someone should send him a link to this site. That could be interesting.

Well, Cyntrow, this will not be the first or last time a great mind and/or a perceptive individual has been labeled insane: Did you know that Descartes - one of the most revered philosophers, Einstein - the intellectual pride of the USA, Tesla - the genuis behind nuclear power and electrical power distribution, Chrysler - the founder of Chrysler Corporation, Asimov - the great scientist and informal foresight technologist, Noah of the Bible - as he constructed an ark at a time no one has ever seen that much water to sail such a thing, were all called insane by their peers? Oh, about Percy Chrysler: Did you know that after Chrysler failed in his attempts to overtake auto companies and lead them into advance auto engineering technology and managed to build his first Chrysler pilot, the autoshow barred him from coming anywhere near the autoshow with his so-called high-torque/high-powered engine vehicle, because they believed that he, Percy Chrysler, was completely insane? The ingenious Chrysler, however, managed to showcase his model Chrysler (which he only succeeded in building by sacrificing all he had and with support from very close family members and friends - seeing no bank would loan him money) by erecting his platform just outside the forbidden zone and on the way to the autoshow! Attention is said to have been drawn from the official autoshow to Chrysler's autoshow! Well, now you, too, know the rest of the story! And ... you, tell me who was indeed insane or too shallow-minded to see beyond the immediate surrounding! Just do not forget that you, too, were alerted when things begin to happen as forewarned! When it was warned that ID implants on domesticated animals was simply a pilot towards Human ID implants for human manipulations and much more, who listened? Most people simply dismissed the idea by alleging that the FDA would have to approve such a thing and would never approve such a thing in the USA, until it happened (although I believe it had actually happened long before the open approval)! Please see: Human ID implant approved by FDA - http://future.iftf.org/2004/08/human_id_implan.html

On the 2 or 3 occasions that I looked at the website I am convinced that he is delusional. Anyone can take a few random facts and spin a conspiracy theory out of it. Frankly, I have no use for these theories and find them and the people who believe them to be pathetic. The real danger is that they galvanize people into thinking everything is a conspiracy, and wind up distracting them from looking at the real issues in our country. Everyone is so focused on what Bush may have done or may have caused that they are blinded to the overall picture of how we came to be in the position we are today. We have at least 50 years of history to blame, and 2 political parties to blame it on. We should be looking at ways to correct what's wrong in America instead of thinking that the government is out to get us. We are supposed to be the government, so why are we allowing these things to happen? We can start by cleaning out Congress and stop looking the other way when our favorite party does something questionable. The government is accountable to the people, at least it is supposed to be, so let's start making them accountable .

Destiny007, although some of the things Alex Jones discusses might cause one to wonder, there are several other issues that he talks about that are worth paying attention to. If you live in Texas - the State where almost US every experiment is tested, then you will understand why the man is concerned (although he may be profiting from spreading the alert signals). I do not believe the man is delusional. The US government has become almost everything but what even its hypocritical founding fathers had hoped for or dreamed about. Do you not think that a government that is known to have repeatedly harmed its people and their image worldwide by its greedy and inhumane activities is probably up to something again? Is it not said that "once bitten, twice shy"?

Not only is he delusional, I am convinced that he is just flat nuts. I have looked over his site a time or two, and he has nothing to offer other that wild unsubstantiated theories. I am curious about how you think the founding fathers were hypocritical, especially since most of them where hunted, their families imprisoned and tortured, and they lost everything because of their beliefs. The government has always got something going on that we don't know about, and I am no real fan of it. Having said that, the US has helped more countries and people over the years than were harmed, and we are who peope look to when they want help. Despite all of it's faults, the US is still the best place to live, especially when compared to the way other countries treat the citizens. If you find a place you think you like better, then in the interests of your continued happiness, by all means migrate. Just remember that the protection of the constitution ends at our borders.

I have not been to the website and really have no idea about this man. The conclusions that this man has come to, from what I am reading, is just a bunch of fabrications to me. Yes, the world is plotted out..by God, especially, the hurricane, tsunami, disasters, because it is all stated in the Bible, as a sign of the world comming to an end. As far as the cell phone/bee thing and all of the other BS, I do not believe it. It just seems nonrealistic and abnormal to me. I vote option A and B. He does have a lot of time on his hands, needs help - most def-, has a great immagination of compiling all of this crap, and wants fame and fortune by being completely unrational.

They say that most mentally ill people are also geniuses. I studied mental illness for a year...not making me an expert on the subject of course....but I also did an internship on a psych ward. I have a daughter who has psych problems and her IQ is at the top of the charts. She COULD have been almost anything she wanted to be. She's very talented in a number of ways....she writes poetry and short stories that have sold, as well as play guitar, piano and sing. All self taught by the way. She's raised a son who has no psych problems but is also close to genius at 13 years old. I think this man probably does have some issues but is also a very intelligent man.

Theres no doubt, Mr. jones is a very intelligent and shrewed man. His sanity is debatable, though it may well be that he's just an amazing marketer and actor. *shrug*

Q: What's the difference between Al Sharpton and Alex Jones? A: Al hustles the gullible about race. Alex hustles the gullible about conspiracy. Both are smarter than average and very good at doing analysis of complex human events. Both know that basically overall what they alledge is not correct. Both feel the deceit in which they engage is justified because of the greater good accomplished because of what they do. Al combats racism, which does still exist. Alex combats government conspiracy, which still does exist. What's a few lies in order to battle such evil? In both cases, there is a small amount of truth in some of what they say. Both just blow everything out of proportion to make money out of the situation. Anyway, this is how I understand these 2 characters. I would not shut either of them up. Both sometimes expose things or make points no else would. Of course, you really have to sort through the BS to find the gems of truth.

" would not shut either of them up. Both sometimes expose things or make points no else would. Of course, you really have to sort through the BS to find the gems of truth." I'm sure this is true. My concern is some day one of these guys is gonna stumble on to something real and something signifigant and no one is going to take them seriously. The cry wolf syndrome. And guys like this have made it almost impossibly difficult to take seriously. There is quite a bit of legitimacy in many pieces he's done, when you pull each piece out one at a time. the problem is he takes all these random pieces and throws them together in creative ways that any hollywood movie writer could do, and expounds it as one gospel theory. Or even goes as far as taking something benign and subtly directing you on what to think of it, turning it in to something to be afraid of when put in with other such things, it's a classic technique in social engineering.

*laughs* I haven't been to the website, so I'm not really up on this whole topic. However, the ways you have described this person remind me of a guy my husband and I met in a bus station once. We were stuck there for many hours because of some weird scheduling, and I remember thinking I was going to go nuts after so much conversation with this guy, who didn't seem threatening but also didn't seem to take a hint that we really didn't want to talk to him. Everything with him was a conspiracy theme too, and it just made me wonder where he was going and what he was going to do when he got there, and if it included killing someone he saw as part of the conspiracy. Those all sound like really good hypotheses. My vote would be B) just from the information you've mentioned here, and the fact that I've heard this guy mentioned by several other people, so he must be popular!

Yeh, the guy is huge, has a very dedicated following. You should check the site out, read some of the articles and watch some of the vids. It's amazing how he takes all these individual pieces and weaves them in to an almost plausible theory, even with in individual pieces he does the same. They come apart easily but their pretty entertaining.

Xfahctor, like Alex Jones, I live in Texas (and in the heartbeat of Texas), where almost everything in the USA happens - from Walmart's national annual conferences to the Oil and Gas industry's OTC (Offshore Technology Conference). So much has happened and happens here in Texas that affects the world (and unfortunately, most have been very negative). These considered, it does not take very long before anyone with some commonsense begin to become very suspicious of any activity by the US government (real or imaginary). Is it not said that, "once bitten, twice shy"? For example: 1). We have people unnecessarily dying in an unnecessary war in Iraq based on lies upon lies by the US government, after the deaths of thousands in the mysterious collapses of the World Trade Towers and other buildings affected on 911/2001! 2). All over the US, especially in Texas, people who used to be strong-willed and/or opinionated are all going about like zombies! 3). All of a sudden, we have these mysterious diseases popping up amongst us, and some eradicated as soon as they appeared, and yet no disease has ever been known to be eradicated as soon as it appeared! Therefore, implying that an antidote must have been handy to stop process by the perpetrators! Etc. Folks, I do not believe that Alex Jones simply has an overactive mind. There several others (myself included), who, like Alex Jones, find it necessary to alert people. My advice is that you pay heed! If the theory is too far-fetched for you, then simply move on!

You are totally right, the dude is a nut. its a joke that people can believe the things he says and then think they are being smart about it and uncovering something. Things that are reliable only on the internet are so for a reason. Its absurd that so many people, especially the nuts here at mylot actually believe this stuff because one crazy guy says it on the freakin' internet!

My Stepfather gets like this sometimes. I started a discussion a while back on one of his conspiracy theories. It upset me alot at the time but I've come to the conclusion that ppl can find things to support any theory they come up with...if they look hard enough. I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong but what will happen, will happen. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I think the guy's a total nutjob. Actually, I think a lot of conspiracy theorists are incredibly delusional. I think they have too much time on their hands, and very active imaginations.
