Lorks! conspiracy theories seem to be everywhere at the moment, we can’t move for them.  And they seem to be growing daily.   I’ve long had an interest in them as a strange, fascinating phenomenon of our times.  Anyway, quite by chance I came across this short video – it runs at approx 30 minutes in length – on YouTube, and it sounded interesting.  For those that don’t know, Erik Medhus was a young American guy who took his own life in 2009, at the tender age of 20.  Since then his mother, Elisa, a qualified physician, claims to have been in constant contact with him, and Erik has given a huge amount of information about the Other Side.

Elisa’s YouTube channel, named Channeling Erik, contains some fascinating interviews.   It is entirely up to you what you make of it all.  I mention it with no judgement, other than that I find it very interesting.  When it comes to the After-Life – and conspiracies themselves for that matter – I am wholly open-minded.  I’ve lost enough loved ones myself to want to believe it’s all real, but at the same time I am always uncomfortably aware of the fact that it could all just be wishful thinking.    Sometimes it’s a right pain having a foot in both camps.

On 6 January 2016 a video was posted in which Elisa, via a medium, quizzed Erik about the truth behind some of the world’s most famous conspiracy theories.  The answers were well-balanced, and thought-provoking.  Of course you could just go and watch the video for yourself, and I recommend you do so, as some of the answers were a lot more complex than I’ve presented here, but I thought I’d just present a brief summary of the results.

The Conspiracies:

9/11   Erik asserts there was no secret government involvement, but that the government did have information which could have prevented it from happening.

Moon Landings    The Moon Landings actually happened, but some of the live footage was adjusted at a later date, as it was not of good enough quality.

Is There Life On Mars?   Yes there is, molecular life.  There may well have been more advanced life there a long time ago.

Is CERN a portal / a stargate?   No.

Is HAARP responsible for mind-control?   HAARP has had some involvement in odd things that have been happening world-wide, including (curiously) Gulf War Syndrome.  No overt mind-control agenda though.

Chemtrails   Yes they are a thing, but again it’s not about mind-control of the populace, it’s more a form of weather-control.  It’s mainly to protect the atmosphere against global warming.

FEMA death-camps   There has long been some grisly speculation about FEMA stockpiling coffins and building concentration camps.  Erik asserts that some of this has been a “risk management” process by the United States government, as a contingency plan in case WW3 were to break out.  He makes the intriguing comment that WW3 “has been trying to be born” (you can say that again!), but that it won’t actually happen.  The powers-that-be believe that if it were to happen, it would not be about guns and the military, but far more likely to be a chemical/biological war.

JFK   The United States government hired some dubious elements to carry out the hit.  Erik refuses to elaborate any further on this, but in another video on the same channel – the Marilyn Monroe one – there are mentions of a combined CIA/Mafia operation.

Was AIDS invented by the US government to curb gays and the black population?   There is no conspiracy about AIDS.

Is the Shroud of Turin genuine?   It is not the real shroud of Jesus.  The real one is “underground”, possibly in a catacomb, possibly in Italy.

Is Fluoride being put into public water to cause a dumbing-down of the populace?  No, it was put in to make money, pure and simple, and to put dentistry on the map.

Global Warming    Is real, it is not a hoax.  60-70% of it is man-made.  Erik asserts that the generation who are currently toddlers will be the ones who “lick it”, kick it into touch.  I do hope so.

Did Shakespeare write all his own plays?   Some of them, and others were a joint collaboration with an aristocrat who couldn’t be open about it at the time.  Shakespeare was in control of “the longer ones”, but the sonnets in particular were a collaboration (I once saw a plausible argument about Christopher Marlowe being the real author of the sonnets).  About 45% of the output was written solely by good old Will of Stratford*.

Is the United States government doing anything they don’t want people to know about?  Yes, mainly involving the movement of money, billions of dollars-worth of gold hidden in other countries.  This has been going on now for several decades, starting about 7 presidents back (presumably counting as of the beginning of 2016 when this video was made).

There’s enough there to start several heated arguments already!!   I was quite pleasantly surprised at how balanced it was, with no hysterical assertions about the Queen being a shapeshifting lizard, or Hitler living at the South Pole, or the Earth being flat (and no doubt resting on a giant turtle).   The FEMA one I found particularly interesting, as it ties in with some of the Emergency / Worst Case Scenario stuff I’ve encountered here in Britain.   There are panels of experts who have to meet to draw up plans as to what the government needs to do if such-and-such happens, and I can’t believe it’s any different in other countries.    My other-half has acted as a government adviser concerning what would happen if a giant CME hit the Earth and knocked out the National Grid, for instance.

With the 9/11 one I can’t help remembering seeing the footage of George W Bush reacting to the news.  Since then I’ve read arch-conspiracists have cited this as proof that He Knew.  I always saw it more as a sort of sad resignation, along the lines of “so it’s happened then”.

Anyway, if you violently disagree with any of Erik’s findings, don’t come and have a go at me.  I know how frighteningly emphatic some conspiracists/truthers can be, and I have no wish to get into a vicious argument about it.   All I will do is reiterate that I found it very interesting, and I wouldn’t mind seeing more videos along this line (and no, I am not a shill either).

*I can’t help feeling that some of the anti-Will Shakespeare stuff is down to class snobbery, pure and simple.   Some lofty academics cling hard to the idea that it was really Francis Bacon who was the real Shakespeare.  The best argument I’ve read against that one (and sadly I can’t remember who wrote it) was that Bacon was a right miserable old sod, with a stick up his backside, and for that reason he couldn’t have possibly written Shakespeare’s comedies!
