Conspirasea was a sort of conspiracy-theory convention on board a cruise ship. This set of articles is from a skeptic who attended. He was sympathetic to the people, though not the ideas. As a lawyer by trade, he was much harder on the pseudo-law speakers than the pseudo-science types.

I breezed through it. My span of attention for conspiracy geeks has become very short.

I was not selling my THE JFK ASSASSINATION IN BRIEF at all. I judged the title was too much "cold dead raw fish", so I changed it to THE RISE & FALL OF JFK TRUTH. I have now sold ... one.

I sympathize with the rancor towards legal crackpots over science crackpots. Creationists are really nothing but a nuisance, the science community pays them little or no attention ... but people selling what amounts to criminal legal theories (odd concept, that) are dangerous.

Creationist Kent Hovind thought himself quite clever in all his "rebuttals" of evolutionary science. Well, he could do that indefinitely, for all it mattered -- but when thought he could similarly rebut tax laws, he ended up with ten years in the Federal slammer. It's somewhat ironic that, while the laws of nature admit to no real violation, the laws of the state have a lot more teeth. I think that's because, even when people claim defiance of the laws of nature, they know perfectly well there's really nothing they can do to challenge them.
