That sure as hell beats out the namby-pamby 10 Weirdest Fundamentalist Christian Conspiracy Theories an Alternet writer came up with, eh?
In any case, please watch both the above videos: I trust you will then realize that the world is in far worse shape than you thought it was before reading this post.
