Conspiracy Theory

As already presented in "Are You Prepared?", September is National Preparedness Month.

That's why I suspect there's a conspiracy. First, the government designates the month. Second, as if to reinforce the designation, Hurricane Gustav motivates the evacuation of New Orleans. Next, Hurricane Ike confirms the necessity of our being prepared, not only by blowing about and flooding the mostly evacuated Galveston Island and Houston areas, but by flooding, adding to existing floods, and by putting out the lights as far north as the state of New York.

To add insult to injury, two disaster movies, "Daylight" and "Apocalypse 10.5" were shown on Monday on the USA network with the terrorist movie, "Live Free or Die Hard," playing on HBO last week and this.

Do you see what I mean? The government, nature, and TV are in cahoots.

There's also the issue of the bad guy in "Live Free or Die Hard." Am I the only one who's noticed his resemblance to Ryan Seacrest?

Do you think the film makers did that on purpose?

No, I don't really believe there's a conspiracy. The best I can do to link them together is say that they're coincidences. However, I've long held the belief that there's no such thing as a mere coincidence. Coincidences are God's way of allowing us to see Him at work.

Job 37: 6. For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. 7. He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. 8. Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places. 9. Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. 10. By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: 12. And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. 13. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. Proverbs 6: 6. Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 7. Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 8. Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. 9. How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? 10. Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 11. So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
