"Conspiracy" Is....

The fear of incoherence; and ambiguity.  Christianity calls that "mystery," and puts it at the beating heart of its doctrine, its teachings, its beliefs.

And frankly, it's when we don't, that what we teach as "Christian" stops being precisely that.

But there's no question we fear incoherence and ambiguity; and it's why we seek patterns and meaning and understanding in everything around us.  Conspiracy also hinges on one other essential:  the "secret knowledge" that not everyone has; or even acknowledges.
At extremes, it's just plain nuts.
