I don't know why they're being so hard on them... Isn't "There’s a Zombie in Guangzhou" a famous song?

I'd just like to address the Chinese Christians that sneek in here: The Americans, Brits, Swiss, Norwegians, etc ALL have Zombies without any State punishment at all. Christians have demons too. Hell, the French are Zombies. I'm pretty sure they have werewolves too.
Psst: It's time to send all the Zombies and other creatures to Tiananmen Square to demonstrate for freedom! FREEDOM!

Bob, do you think this is a news thread? Maybe you need yet another Misc news thread?

I find conspiracy theories fascinating, in general, but this reptilian/humanoid belief is engrossing. How did it start? Why does it persist? It is one of the older conspiracies out there. I have no idea how a rational person could believe it but there is evidence for this belief spanning over 200 years. Amazing.

It is fascinating, and baffling. How does one come to a point where these things seem plausible? I know someone who, within 24 hours and with absolutely no direct evidence, was convinced beyond doubt that justice Scalia was murdered, in response to which I can only manage to stammer soundlessly. I can't get "WTF" out. Can't even manage the "W".

Wow. There is so little out there trying to understand this thinking and most of what is out there either describes the phenomenon or tries to come up with what to do with them from various positions. This article is fairly recent and interesting: Conspiracy Theories.

There seems to be a theme, though, about "crippled epistemology". That does seem to explain the "how" but not the "why".

I'd say that it is less about a crippled epistemology and more about a crisis of metanarrative unfolding within a postmodern matrix.

Heh.

I know "why". People want answers. Not the actual answers which are complex, difficult to understand, and unsatisfyingly fail to harmonise with preconceived simplistic assumptions about the world. But answers which instantly put them into the special group of those who really know, and satisfyingly blame someone.
