Meet the Author

The author, M.E. Brines, spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. Designer of more than twenty sci-fi wargames and The Struggle of Nations play-by-e-mail game (all available at www.fantasynations.com) he also organized a dozen fantasy gaming conventions (the EconomyCons) and spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires!
A long-time student of the occult and committed Christian (like Professor Van Helsing,) he is the author of two dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as Alien Abduction, Alien Hybrids, UFOs, Conspiracies, Mind Control the Falun Gong, esoteric Nazism, the Knights Templar, astrology, magick, the Bible, the spear of Longinius and Christian discipleship. His work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, The Traveller Chronicle, Midnight Times, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and The Willows magazine.

I couldn't even get through this after skimming it. Not everything that has 'conspiracy theory' attached to it is from The Devil!

Reviewed by Jean Hall for Readers' Favorite It is a confusing world out there and conspiracy theories may uncover the truth. M.E. Brines, in The Truth About Conspiracy Theories, adds his voice to a range of facts and events that have been questioned over time. Some people believe that the U.S. Air Force covers up an extra-terrestrial presence at Area 51 in the Arizona desert. The aircraft test site has been shrouded in mystery for many years. In the world of politics, some people believe that there was a group behind President Kennedy's shooting. It is hard to accept that one man could change world events in such a drastic way. Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger, but who influenced him to do it? Perhaps the mob, Cuba's Castro regime or even the CIA had an interest in assassinating the President? The author even goes into biblical text and ancient Roman history for examples of conspiracy theories. Individuals, institutions, and governments do have their own motives for suppressing awkward, sinister, or embarrassing truths. This opinion piece explains that conventional wisdom should be taken with a grain of salt. It is easy to just accept conventional thought and go on with our daily lives. But M.E. Brines in The Truth About Conspiracy Theories challenges the reader to question their beliefs. He presents a good argument for the validity of conspiracy theories. "People dismiss evidence for conspiracy theories because it contradicts their worldview." Much of what the author writes is controversial and that is exciting to the imagination. The pamphlet is brief but it shows how the source of information on the news and in history books can be compromised by corruption or personal interest. Take a bit of time to read this author's opinion and look at world events from a different point of view.
