    I think it is a conspiracy theory to think that the “age of conspiracy theories” began with the JFK assassination.

    They have been around forever – the only thing that has changed is the speed in which they can travel and the number of people that can participate.

    The one thing that has not changed is we along with all of our predecessors think that history revolves around us and our generation / time in history. This is part of how selfish, self centered or as Luther used to call it – how “curved in on ourselves”, we can get.

    Oh, I forgot – one of those Bible passages to make my comment legitimate (isn’t that what we do – quote the Bible to support ourselves?)

    “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.”

    Actually, I think the modern age of conspiracy started with McCarthy and then fully flowered after the assassination.

    It could be worse. In the 50 years after Lincoln’s assassination, two more presidents were killed ( Garfield and McKinley). At least all the assassination attempts since Kennedy have failed.

    “The strings snapped briskly then went slack the marionette lay dead
    While Hoover played with the motorcade the body slumped and bled
    The man who held the camera disappeared into the crowd
    I said the hope of youth, fictitious truth, lays covered in a shroud
    Then up walked Elmo Lincoln and he said I beg you pardon
    But we left it oh so long ago, the garden”

    The granddaddy of all western conspiracy theories was launched by the hoax The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This fake anti-Semitic document added fuel to the fires of WW2 and who knows how many pogroms in eastern Europe.

    There have always been conspiracy theories, but now people make major bank of them, which of course is always good no matter who they hurt. The Warren commission did a mediocre job in the aggregate, though some agencies performed exemplary in their particular parts of the report. I have read most of the Warren Report, not all of it, and some of the supporting documentation.

    My own opinion, when JFK was executed in Dealey Plaza the United States and the western allies lost WW2 in a political sense. Corporate fascism took a hold of many of our institutions to some degree. But that is just me.

    Speaking of worldwide conspiracies I find some groups in the Christian community think there is an international Romans 1 conspiracy consisting of many disciplines. I find that rather interesting.

    I am reminded of the one that lives on to the present day, that the disciples came and stole His body while the soldiers were asleep.

    @ #7.

    it’s possible it was one single creep with a rifle who got a chance to take a “lucky” sniper shot… it is just as equally possible that he was a useful fool who was groomed to do the job and take the fall…
    truth be told, if Kennedy hadn’t been removed, we wouldn’t have had this “Great Society” of Lyndon Johnson design and some other “events” …
    but all history does move according to God’s will, His design… permissive or otherwise directed, we do know where it is leading … Father, God, Thy kingdom come (soon?)
