Nothing but conspiracy theories
21 August 2015 | by (Alexandria, VA, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this on the History Channel. What a joke. The title suggests that this would be a show where we might learn a little about the private lives of the Founding Fathers and some of their imperfections. But this is nothing but a show for Masonic conspiracy theorists to present their lunatic beliefs. Little time is given for any "naysayers." The narrator sounds like a firm believer in these crazy ideas rather than a neutral observer.

Ralph Epperson, one of the regular conspiracy theorists on this show, has his own web site. He's been ranting this nonsense for decades. He makes it sound like the U.S. Constitution is part of a "Satanic, Masonic" plot of world domination.

Three tenets of any conspiracy theory are: (1) nothing is what it appears to be; (2) nothing happens by accident; and (3) everything's connected. Also, if you question the theory, theorists will probably say you're part of it.

The History Channel used to have a pretty good record of presenting both sides of an issue. But in shows like the ones on UFOs, Nostradamus and predictions of "armageddon," and this one, there is no balance. Nonbelievers are given hardly any time.
