(Rolling Stone) It wasn’t long ago that Lara Logan was a correspondent for CBS News, which is a little hard to believe considering the types of conspiracy theories she’s been pushing since she left the network. The latest came during an appearance on the right-wing podcast “And We Know,” during which Logan suggested that the theory of evolution is the result of a wealthy Jewish family paying Charles Darwin to devise an explanation for what gave rise to humanity.

K: so, Lara Logan is suggesting that the Rothchilds "hired" Darwin to create
the theory of evolution... that ignores certain facts about Darwin...
Darwin never worked a day in his very long life because his family was uber
wealthy... just about the only job Darwin had, was being the ship's
scientist on the journey of the Beagle.. and that had no pay....

the theory of evolution had been around for decades before Darwin which includes debates
that Darwin's own grandfather engaged with...

Darwin himself actually wasn't going to publish his results as early as he did,
he was a perfectionist, but he was forced to by Afred Wallace who came up with
a very identical theory......but here comes my point... the radical right wing
can and will create an insane conspiracy theory out of everything, including
science... the conservatives do not offer up any type of meaningful
or constructive idea's how to solve the issues of the day, global warming,
or income inequality, overpopulation, pollution issues, the political gridlock,
nope, no solutions there.. just insane conspiracy theories that has no value
of any kind...that don't move our understanding of an issue or helps solve
those issues or help us clearly know what the issues are... just brain damaged
conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality or truth...

let us try this, let us say, for the sake of argument, that I agree that the
democrats stole the 2020 election... but what do the radical right offer us
as solutions then to this pretend problem? nothing.. nothing at all...
when the radical right comes up with insane conspiracy theories like
Soros built lasers in outer space to cause forest fires in California,
ok, so where is the solution to this issue? they don't tell us...
the point isn't finding solutions, but an engagement with the
conspiracy theory is the point..... and the crazier the theory,
the more "important" it becomes...

so, instead of giving us insane conspiracy theories, how about you offer
us some solutions to the vexing problems of the day, like global warming...
(which of course is just another conspiracy theory to the radical right)
and how does an insane conspiracy theory help us? it doesn't.....

so in reading a post, ask yourself, is this just another insane conspiracy theory
that offers us no solutions, or is this post about real problems and real solutions?

if there is no engagement with problems or solutions offered to a problem,
that post has no value, it is empty of, void of content...
which pretty much is all that UR posts, gloom posts, Observe posts,
and apparently Alf the post/thread and ask yourself, is this just
another insane conspiracy theory, or is there a problem/problems listed
and/or solutions offered?

Now if only I could get the other "members of the collection of truth"
to put me on ignore, life would be good..
