I got started in conspiracy theories and fringe science with a book called None Dare Call it Conspiracy in high school and about the same time the Von Däniken books (Chariots of the Gods?, Gold of The Gods, et al.) came out. I read some John Birch Society literature from that period too. I have a couple of prized editions from Charles Berlitz of Bermuda Triangle fame. It’s always been fascinating to me how seeming rational people can hold such different views of not only “reality” but also of history.
This web site is about one particular conspiracy theory genre, that surrounding Barack Obama. Obama stories intersect my own sphere of interest in the area of birth certificates. I wrote my first electronic birth certificate system in 1977-78 while working for a state government and I’ve kept my hand in it off and on ever since.
