Dennizm--you should try Icewind Dale, much better than Baldur's Gate. Haven't tried BG2 yet, though.
Another conspiracy theory is that Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind are the same writer, Stephen King's wife actually wrote some of his books.
Also that Doctor's DO have a cure for cancer, they just have not realesed it yet because TOO MANY doctors, hospitals and health clinics would be out of business.

I can certainly agree with the Stephen/Tabatha King theory, have you ever read Wolves at the Door, by Mrs King? This lady has one sick mind, her book is more chilling than any of her husbands, so maybe his more chilling books are by her...hmmm.
Jordan/Goodkind... nah Jordan could never write as good as Goodkind (whoops!) http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif
I have played Icwind Dale, and completed it! Brilliant! Can't wait for the expansion... Heart of Winter... err maybe theres a conspriracy... If I have the Heart of Winter in my hand, I am thus holding Winter's Heart http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

Here we go
JORDAN RULES! GOODKIND DROOLS!
With SK, rumors were to that effect when Gerald's Game was published. (Great book, btw)
Have you read the Icewind Dale trilogy?

Yea... Dritz rocks! (ohh for chrisake, shut up Den!). http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
And the Dark Elf Trilogy, I have only read Legacy of the other Dritz Books.
Intresting about Gerald's Game, this book freeked me in the manner she gets out of the handcuffs, it took me a day to read that chapter, I kept having to go out for fresh air. So maybe she did write it, I also felt a little green around the gills reading Wolves at the Door, like I say... she is a twisted lady!

Ooh conspiracy theories! How Mulderesque http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/wink.gif Von Danichen's theory that human life was 'seeded' by alien life forms tickles my neurons *g* Not that I entirely subscribe to his theory - but its food for thought.
Another of my favorite conspiracy theories is that every word typed to the internet whether it be through email, webforums, webpagers is being filtered through a u.s. government agency. Let's give it a try! *mischievous grin* : BOMB, U.S. EXPLODE jihad http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/wink.gif

Maybe that's not a conspiracy theory, but still nice:
One of my friends strongly believes that Jim Morrison is still alife.
Morrison was fed up with his way of living and faked his death to get away from his publicity.
There's also a rumour that inside earth is a hollow space with a different world.
Jules Verne picked that up with "Traveling to the center of earth"

Heh, the Baldur's Gate games are good alright, but hardly as good as Gabriel Knight.
I'd say the Icewind Dale is the normal Forgotten Realm stuff.. not that good. But Drizzt is such a cool hero, he makes the series.
And yeah, Goodkind? hah

Another couple of people i think could have faked their own death:
Dodi Al fied
JFK Juniour and his wife(i don't know her name)
Jon Denver (exactly ten years after he was supposed to die on the Challenger, c'mon, if not an amazing coincidence)
That's all for now.

what, you mean the king didn't have an anuerism on the toilet? heh hehe. As for the moon landing, the camera was on the eagle itself, on the landing leg. it was there the whole time. Ask NASA for the specifics, they'll be happy to tell you. they've got all sorts of documents set up to show you.
I don't really care if it's stephen or his wife writing those books, as long as the next Dark Tower book comes out soon. http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif
Finally, Baldur's Gate 2 rules. it's a great friggin game.

It's not just the video camera evidence, there's a helluva lot of defects on the pictures they actually took on the moon. Examples are crosshairs(little crosses on military photograph) look to have been added into the pictures(very badly) and are behind the imagery when they should be in front of them. Light where physicist say they're shouldn't be and shadows where physicists say they're shouldn't be. Also in the photos there is no stars in the sky, they should be incredible bright and vivid because the moon has no atmosphere to block them out.
There's another rumor going around that Stanley Kubrik actually directed the "faked Lunar landing". NASA approached him after seeing the incredible realism in Kubriks movie 2001: A Space Odyssee (in 1968).
I don't think that rumor has any substance though, because if Kubrik had directed it there would have been no mistakes.
