They say that Russia is the motherland of conspiracy theories, and public reaction to the sudden meteor strike a week ago that stunned people in the Ural mountains, and injured more than 1,200, seems to be proving that true.

A survey published today by the fairly staid Moscow daily Noviye Izvestia found that barely half its readers believe the official report that the blast was caused by a meteor.

do they really? have they ever looked at Web sites on the internet? The Russians often seem to be the most level headed and rational.

Doesn't surprise me. That was one heck of an air explosion. Of course it was just the meteor, but I assume(without knowledge) many in that region do not have ready access to world-wide information regarding the natural, cosmic event.

According to the newspaper, the other half prefer to believe in an assortment of bizarre explanations, including that the blast was a secret US weapon test, an off-course ballistic missile, a message from God, a crashing alien spaceship, or even an extraterrestrial trojan horse carrying a deadly space virus to wipe out the Earth.

=========================================================================

One half were posting the meteorite on the web while other  half were figuring out what  to make up to put on the web.
Whats the next pop up advert going to be:

I believe it is a message from god telling them a spaceship is on its way to send a trojan horse to test  its ballistic missile out on the Russians by order of the US.... but it crashed!

well, that's what we've been asked to believe ourselves, about those Spirals that have been popping up here & there, haven't we, so that needn't be all that far-fetched.

Although I'm sure there's lots of noisy speculation and conspiracy nonsense and what-have-you, my experience is that most Russians are as level headed as any other group.  It's the ones with the craziest ideas that get the attention.

This is out of control and I don't blame the Russian people.

I fully blame the Russian government.  When you have an idiot Russian polititian say the ridiculous things he said, of course some people are going to believe him.  There's absolutely no reason to say those types of things.  They're baseless.

What reason in the world would we have to bomb the Russians.....NOW?  Over 20 years since the cold war ended and it's crap like this that just creates mistrust.

The Russian government needs to get off their collective asses and start informing their public.

I say....if marriage is hard work, you're doing it wrong.  Love is not work.  Love is eternal.

yes, the U.S. Government never tries to scare its People by insisting that there's a perpetual threat from people who want to attack them, do they?

I sincerely hope you're not basing that on some ridiculous 911 conspiracy theory, because there's no comparison.

And is it the U.S. government posting all the terror sites online that say death to America?

Is it the U.S. government burning the flag in foreign countries?

Go ahead.  Now spew out your conspiracy theory...............
