Now, this should be very interesting. In Manchester tonight, GMSS, We Are Change Manchester, and New Internationalist Magazine are holding a debate on conspiracy theories. Judging from their Facebook event page, 9/11 and the moon landings are up for discussion, but hopefully much more will be covered.
I’ve always been interested in conspiracy theories (not that I’ve been persuaded by them), and I can highly recommend David Aaronovitch’s book “Voodoo Histories” for a good overview of some of the more popular ones. I’m always keen to find out what other people think, particular those with opposing views to my own, so I’m currently trying to watch this movie recommended on the event’ Facebook group.
I’ll be there, hopefully carrying out iPadio interviews, so watch this blog for updates on the event.
