I posted a new blog entry today... but for some reason Blogger decided to stick it under yesterday's post. Odd.

I thought it was high time that I wrote about the impossible man that is my father.

Anyway, here it is:


My dad is extremely intelligent. But sometimes he gets a little carried away and ends up being one of these people who is ready to believe any piece of pseudo-scientific, crackpot, conspiracy theory news. For example:

Giant Worms on Mars.
Face on Mars.
King Tut's Knives.
Apollo Landing Hoax.
And one of my favorites:
Barack Obama is the Antichrist.... and he LOVES Obama... but that doesn't keep him from believing that he's going to take over the world.


He just wants so much for there to be something bigger out there, something more elaborate. It's not so much that he wants a master plan as he wants a screenplay. He wants everything to be Sci-Fi and can't settle for the prefix alone.

Lol, he thinks Obama is the anti-christ, but he loves him?! That's hilarious.

Well, my dad went from being an atheist to born-again, so you are not alone in the parents who believe in crazy things category. My sympathies. Yours sounds more interesting however, and a lot less prone to heated arguments. What can you really say to a guy who believes in giant worms on Mars?! (Actually, do we know for sure there aren't giant worms on Mars?)

Oh, there is a proof for the moon landing, other than the "faked" videos; it has to do with being able to see some stuff that they left there from the earth...let's see...hmm, I can't find it...wait...well, maybe he's right about that one. Of course they had to fake it nine times, which seems excessive.
