A Christian cold case detective, J. Warner Wallace, posted an excellent podcast detailing how he evaluates conspiracies, something he does consistently in his line of work. I highly encourage you to listen to it. I will also point you toward a video (with notes) that I recorded this past year on Christians and conspiracies.
In a world awash in lies, innuendo and rumor, people of truth are in short supply. Let's work hard to build that number. If you see that a news source on which you relied promoted or defended these conspiracies, I encourage you to find a new source of news.
#1. COVID-19 will go away when the election is over.
It’s actually gotten far worse. I’ve been compiling info for a while. While I have no doubt politicians on both sides of the aisle were trying to turn this pandemic to their advantage, COVID-19 was never merely a political game. It’s always been very, very real, as experienced by the entire world.
While I appreciate the renewed concern over the horror that is human trafficking, COVID-19 was never a ploy to disrupt a pedophile cabal. It was a real pandemic that has swept the globe and has so far killed over 1.8 million people. The ships left with no rescued kids on them because that is not why they were sent. Same with the Samaritan's Purse field hospital set up in Central Park. It was not there to rescue children being held in underground tunnels.
#3. Hillary will be arrested for running a cannibal pedophile ring.
Q has been wrong about this since 2017, as well as so many other things. If Hillary deserves to be arrested, it's not because she is involved in a cannibal pedophile ring. The 100,000 sealed indictments for all the other pedophiles didn't exist either.
#4. COVID-19 is being used to turn us into a cashless society.
There were legitimate reasons cash flow was short (cash-oriented businesses were shut down), and we are pretty much back to normal. Cash has been a huge part of not just our day-to-day life but in economies around the globe, and we have every reason to believe it will continue to be.
To give you an idea of to what degree cash remains vital, in 2019 “consumers used cash in 26 percent of transactions… Cash continues to be used extensively for small-value purchases, representing nearly half of all payments under $10 and 42 percent of payments less than $25.”
#5. There will be microchips in the new vaccines.
So, there are no microchips in the vaccines. If there were, you would know it. You could see them with your naked eye. The needles being used to deliver vaccines aren't big enough for a chip to pass through. If they brought out and used a needle of sufficient size, you would know something had gone terribly wrong. According to Dr. Wilbur Chen, an infectious-disease scientist at the University of Maryland’s Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health, "Even the smallest version of RFID chips are rather large, such that none would ever fit into a vaccine needle."
#6. Vaccines are the Mark Of The Beast. Be at peace, fellow Christians. The writer of Revelation was giving a carefully worded commentary on the state-mandated worship of Nero required to enter into trade guilds. A vaccine is not the means by which you sell your soul. Writing at the Logos Academic blog, Matthew L. Halsted, notes,
"I know of no reputable biblical scholar or theologian who would endorse that the COVID-19 quarantine or a vaccine is related to the “mark of the beast”. For starters, in Revelation, the “mark of the beast” is by no means a medical procedure. Most likely, it’s not even a physical or visible mark at all. Contrary to some of the more fear-inducing theories that have in the past gained steam in some evangelical circles, the “mark” is not at all something that could be accidentally taken either... the mark of the beast is a mark of loyalty and devotion to the beast."
#7. 5G is causing the coronavirus. It’s not. It’s just…not. Seriously.
#8. Bill Gates wants to kill people with vaccines. He doesn’t. Read this and click on the links it provides. You may have valid reasons not to like Bill Gates, but he is not trying to kill people with vaccines.
