Brad Matthies Among The Truthers

    Mythicism per se?  Probably not. However, I suspect that you’ll see many of their same characteristics in that which Kay discusses. This quote in particular made me think of the mythicist discussions on this blog.

    “The conspiracy community insists, as…the late lawyer Louis Nizer once observed, that the failure to explain everything perfectly negates all that is explained.”
