The Skeptic's Guide to Conspiracies: From the Knights Templar to the JFK Assassination: Uncovering the (Real) Truth Behind the World's Most (Covered-U Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Did the noble order of the Knights Templar guard a secret about Jesus' birth?

Was the moon landing faked in a Hollywood movie studio?

Is the government keeping the remains of an alien spacecraft in the top-secret Area 51?

Monte Cook takes a look at conspiracy theories--ranging from the historically complex to the seriously whacked out. With a disbelieving eye, he traces the history of some of the world's weirdest ideas and even includes a chart showing readers how to make up conspiracy theories for themselves.

Scattered through the book are the paranoid notes of an anonymous reader who claims to know what's really going on. You can make up your own mind as to who's telling the truth

Synopsis:

Monte Cook (Milwaukee, WI) has written and edited extensively in the realm of role-playing games and fantasy fiction. He was a creator of the third edition of the most famous role-playing game ever, Dungeons & Dragons. He was also the author and designer of the role-playing game Dark Matter, a game in which players take on the roles of investigators of conspiracies and the paranormal. He researched conspiracy theories and integrated some of them into his novel Of Aged Angels, which dealt with the Knights Templar, the secret bloodline of Jesus, aliens, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, the Holy Grail, and Jim Morrison (who is alive and well and living in France).
