You know our motto at Common Sense Conspiracy. We hate to bring up this nonsense considering the grave circumstances, but we do it in a good faith effort to dispel these theories that are getting major hits on the Internet. Basically, there is a video going around that we feature below (it may not be up for long, so be aware) that claims to show footage of the words AURORA showing up on a building marquee in the movie The Dark Knight Rises. We all know what happened in Aurora and its connection to the Batman movie. Then, we see another clip where the film shows a map that has Sandy Hook on it. Before we go any further, here’s the video:
Now, for the fact-checking. The AURORA reference is not from that movie at all. This footage is actually from Skyfall, the latest film in the James Bond franchise. Still a little eerie, but the author of this video doesn’t volunteer this information. If he is willing to lie about that to advance his cause and get some Internet traffic, why should we trust anything he has to say? As for the Sandy Hook part, it is authentic. The explanation: the map used for the fictional Gotham City is actually New York. Sandy Hook appears on the map because it would appear on any map of this area. Is it stomach-turning? Yes. But is there any reason to believe this is some sort of Illuminati-tinged prediction of future events. Hardly.
Other sites are going much farther, saying there are triangles and circles on the map that indicate clear Illuminati ties. Since we’re not in the Illuminati (yet), we can’t speak for that, but there are plenty of nutjobs on the Internet that would be more than happy to explain it to you in graphic detail.
Common Sense Conspiracy believes this is one of those instances where we all would find it easier to believe in some sort of grand conspiracy rather than the truth. It is somehow easier to swallow than the idea that this was a conspiracy…of one man, one shooter with the evilest of intentions. But it brings us no closer to figuring out how to go from here in stopping this madness once and for all. What do you think?
