Jamie Smith and Param Sura: Conspiracy Theories

Some months ago these two members of the UV asked if they could run a WP meeting on conspiracy theories: this was it. It was a slick presentation, clearly and powerfully delivered, and with deft handling of questions. They covered a series of conspiracy chestnuts: the Illuminati, JFK, Michael Jackson’s death, Osama bin Laden’s “death”, the Boston bombings, and of course 9/11. Carefully steering the line between scepticism and gullibility, they explained and illustrated the reasons why some suspect that the orthodox version of these events is not the truth. An exciting and thought-provoking way to end the year.
