Natural News is a website put together by someone by the name of Mike Adams who calls himself the Health Ranger. It is very popular.  I see references to Natural News stories, usually implausible and often ridiculous, on Facebook on a regular basis.  It is often used by anti-vaccine crazies to back up their claims.  

According to rationalwiki.org “Adams is a flat-out opponent of modern medicine and opposes any medication or doctor visits. Adams calls himself a holistic nutritionist and is a raw food proponent who opposes food that contains sugar, food that was cooked or made to last, “red” meat, sweeteners, glutamate, homogenized milk, bread and “white” flour, washing powder of some brands, deodorants, shampoos and fluoride toothpaste.”  In recent times he’s been going even further off the deep end and subscribing to every conspiracy he can get his hands on.  

Yesterday he outdid himself in the art of the despicable. He published an article entitled “Colorado Batman shooting shows obvious signs of being staged”. In the face of a tragedy, an event that ended the lives of 12 young people and appalled the entire world, he trivialises the pain and suffering by turning the event into a cheap, tawdry opportunity to trumpet his own delusions.  As the killings seem more and more to be the doing of a hopelessly insane and deluded person, Mike Adams chose to use the suffering as a chance to further his ridiculous sense of his own importance.  I find it hard to put into words how unforgivable his actions are.

Mike Adams claims that “Someone else taught this guy these skills and funded the acquisition of the equipment.” and suggests it was set up by the FBI “just in time for a vote on the UN small arms treaty”.  He’s suggesting that the government killed a dozen people and wounded 60 at a Batman movie in order to take away everyone’s guns.  The stupidity and insensitivity of his assertions is beyond belief.

Most of the people who quote Natural News are less than scientific in their outlook and are often conspiracy theorist themselves, but I don’t think many of them could stomach this recent outrage.  I can’t think of anything to do about this, but I’d like anyone who reads this to know that any reference to Natural News is an automatic fail.  Don’t read it and never ever use anything said by Mike Adams as evidence for anything at all.

Here is Mr Adams displaying his stupid for the world to see.

In other words, this has all the signs of Fast & Furious, Episode II. I wouldn’t be surprised to discover someone in Washington was behind it all. After all, there’s no quicker way to disarm a nation and take total control over the population than to stage violence, blame it on firearms, then call for leaders to “do something!” Such calls inevitably end up resulting in gun confiscation, and it’s never too long after that before government genocide really kicks in like we saw with Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao and other tyrants.

Unbelievable.

    Here’s where you and I disagree. Look at all the comments supporting his twisted theory.

    • I guess I spoke too soon. You’re right. The limits of human stupidity have not yet been reached. I have no doubt that there is a widespread epidemic of the blindingly stupid all around us. When I think about it I realize that I know people personally that are likely to agree with him. That is another tragedy.

      … and you might very well be a lobbyist for the meat industry. Food is unarguably produced for profit. I just cut sugar and most starches out of my diet after having been in the hospital at least monthly and in intensive care twice in one year. My headaches and vomiting stopped and I have stopped taking my heart medicine. No more atrial fib and no more feeling crappy every single day.

  2. That’s why there’s a terrific Reddit forum called http://www.reddit.com/r/Conspiratard – dedicated especially to showing idiotic conspiracy theories for the idiotic pipe dreams they are. If you look at this site, you *must* look at this link: Ten characteristics of conspiracy theorists at http://www.urban75.org/info/conspiraloons.html

    • Thanks for that. I didn’t know about that forum, and I love the link. It helps to remember that anti-vaccine warriors are really just another flavour of conspiracy theorist. It all comes down to our precious natural fluids after all.

    • Your either a spook or you are retarded.

      The urban75 link…. You do realize its final evidence is wikipedia right?
      You do realize anyone can edit wikipedia right?

      You do realize that those of you that criticize conspiracys also lack evidence or any truth to backup your claims? Just like you claim the conspiracy th eorists cant answers basic questions you ask them. Thats it not true, they will and can, it is you who will not be able to answer anything. The rabbit hole goes very deep on this. No I dont wear tin foil hats. I dont really worry abou tthis anymore. All I can tell you is that the ones “speaking the truth” are part of the conspiracy, think some common sense, would you show your face on you tube if you honestly beleived they can target you? No!!!!
      The ones showing there faces might actually be part of the whole disinformation plan.

      As one anonymous poster said and he ccouldnt have said it better and I quote “They will post a million different theorys from both the ultra left and ultra right wing to confuse you and mask the ultimate truth. just live your life and dont worry”

      you get it? All the skeptics will label the conspiracys as right wing nutjob theorys. THAT IS NOT TRUE!!! If you really investigate you will see both theorys from left and right. And from what I gather the left seems more beleivable, what am I talking about? Uhh lets see, JFK….. RFK……. MLK…….. Bob Marley….. John Lennon……
      You think a right winger is gonna worry about them?

      COMMON SENSE FOLKS!!!!

      • Seraph, you seem to be saying that everything you hear about anything is a lie. You might want to limit that to a few preferred topics, but then everything anyone says publicly about those topics is a lie and anyone who talks about them is part of the conspiracy.

        Given that, who do you trust to tell you what’s really going on? Or how do you figure it out?

        Please select a conspiracy you’re sure exists and let me know why you believe it.

    I am an example of someone who read Natural News until that article was published. Adams does a good job when it comes to shining light on how govt is waging war on people who try to grow their own food, distribute raw milk, etc. But that was beyond the pale and I will no longer sanction such behavior with my readership. ‘Despicable’ is exactly the right word for this.

    Yup it had to be the communists…….
