Jennifer Hudson Speaks Out Against the Illuminati

Not only does Hudson deny any Illuminati involvement in her career, but she takes offense to the insinuation as well.

Especially in the wake of Whitney Houston’s death and Jennifer Hudson’s touching performance on the Grammy’s as tribute to her, more and more people are pointing fingers that Jennifer is in the Illuminati.  Some even say that she was handpicked by the Illuminati to be Whitney Houston’s replacement.  However, Jennifer herself was more than happy to address these rumors and spoke out against the Illuminati conspiracy theories.

““I’m so glad someone brought this Illuminati mess up because only a child of God would address it. That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard in my life. And it’s offensive because basically what? The people that are here today don’t deserve to be where they are? What, we didn’t work for it? So I find-and I hate to go there-but I find it’s those that can’t make it that would probably join Illuminati, or whoever that is, to get somewhere.  Don’t listen to that type of stuff, don’t follow that stuff because those people are only luring you in to become a part of some mess like that, so know that you’re only falling victim. That’s their way of gaining [followers]. I’d advise you to stay away from it. Those who are reading it are falling into it. It could not be more untrue.”

So, Miss Hudson not only denies the Illuminati rumors, but encourages people to not fall into the trap of believing in the nonsense, citing it as a self-fulfilling prophecy as the paranoia creates itself.

Maybe the world needs a few more people like Jennifer Hudson to speak out.

Yosemite Waterfall Turns to Lavafall

Don’t let any apocalyptic theories fool you.  The spectacle in Yosemite National Park where the waterfall appears to be spouting lava is only an illusion.  Only in February does the right situation occur for the sun to perfectly illuminate the waterfall as it sets so that it actually looks as if molten lava is flowing over the granite rock instead of water.  The phenomenon is so intriguing that professional photographers often flock to Yosemite at this time of year to try to catch that perfect moment.  In reality, it is nothing but an illusion, but it sure looks cool.

Have a Heart? What Does Craig Lewis’ Story Mean to the Rest of Us?

Amazing, but at the end of the day a muscle...

If you haven’t heard, Craig Lewis is the man who was doomed to die in mere hours.  Scientists were eager to use him as a guinea pig to debut a new device that is able to simulate the doings of the human heart to the point that Craig was able to live on.  Sounds like a great story at first glance?  Well, you know what?  It is a great story.  However, the reason it is generating so much buzz is a misconception that human beings have that is thrust into our consciousness from a very young age.  See, humans are misled as to what the heart is and what it does.

The human heart is a powerful muscle that is the primary vehicle for sustaining life.  It’s powerful contractions pump blood throughout our bodies, delivering a precious lifeline that is normally irreplaceable.  However, humans, as is their wont, attach a lot of extra qualities to the heart, which affect our definition of what the heart is and what it does to great degrees.

From early in our lives, we are impregnated with the idea that the heart takes on much more of a social responsibility than it really does.  Think of all the sayings you know… Matter of the heart.  His heart wasn’t in it.  Follow your heart.  You have my heart.  The true heart of the matter, so to speak, is that the heart is not what we are predisposed to think it is.

The true human heart is a muscle that helps pump blood throughout our bodies.  No matter how romantic the possibility that the heart takes on some kind of soul-ish reverence is, the fact remains.  The heart pumps blood.  The heart dies, you die.  But Craig Lewis is challenging this belief, because scientists were able to implant a machine that was able to provide all of the duties of a human heart artificially.  While this is a medical marvel that should be recognized, the reason it is creating such a buzz is because of all the extra attachments people put on the heart.  They hear that Craig Lewis has a machine that is successfully pumping blood throughout his body, just as a healthy human heart would, and they wonder.  What about his soul?  What about love?  What about…

The attachments that humans make to the heart are not ill-founded.  They are just simply misplaced.  It is the human brain where the soul lies.  Our personalities, our choices, our ability to reason, and our ability to ascertain

They print them on little heart-shaped sugar things, but in reality, they should be dumpling noodle-looking brain things.

the real world for what it is is what makes the “soul.”  The heart pumps blood to the brain, and therefore, without the heart, the brain, or “soul” if you will, could not exist.  So, you see, the story of Craig Lewis is amazing in its own right, not because his heart was replaced, but because it’s possible.  Sure, Craig doesn’t have a pulse.  Why would he?  He doesn’t have a heart.  However, his brain is still intact.  He still knows what his favorite color is and what kind of ice cream he likes best.  That is because Craig Lewis was a person, an entity, a soul if you will, and like an electronic device you plug in a wall, Craig can do any number of things as long as he has power.  And in this case, power comes from blood, which comes from the heart.

Craig Lewis is just as capable of loving another human being as ever, despite not having a heart.  Why?  Because he has a soul.  However, the scientific implications are very exciting.

Does Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby Blue Ivy’s Name Mean Lucifer’s Daughter?

There are better reasons for choosing the name Blue Ivy than a Satanic lovefest.

As our readers know, Common Sense Conspiracy is a conspiracy-driven site, but we also do our part to dispel rogue theories that get propagated around the internet at a lightning-fast clip.  One such story revolves around the much-awaited arrival of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s first child, whom they rather unconventionally named Blue Ivy.  Now, unconventional baby names are nothing new in celebrity circles, and honestly, Blue Ivy is rather tame compared to some others.  After all, Jermaine Jackson did have the audacity to name his son Jermajesty.  Gwyneth Paltrow made waves by naming her child Apple, keeping it organic.  The list goes on and on.  In any case, the name quickly raised eyebrows on the net, with a certain faction spreading the rumor that the name was chosen to represent “Lucifer’s Daughter.”

Now, that may seem like a really outlandish theory at first glance, but Jay-Z and Beyonce are famous (or infamous) for theories that they are either Illuminati members, devil-worshipers, or possibly both.  There are countless stories about backward messages and symbolism in music videos relating to this pop culture power couple.  So, it was only a matter of time before some enterprising conspiracy theorist sought to go after this latest development.  The concept revolves around taking Blue Ivy and spelling it backward, which comes out to “Eulb Yvi.”  According to the theory and the mass internet campaign of Tweets and Facebook statuses, this phrase in Latin returns us with “Lucifer’s Daughter.”

Here’s the reality, folks.  Eulb Yvi, fed into one of the many Latin translators on the web, comes out to, well, nothing at all.  It is not Latin.  It has no Latin translation.  In fact, it is gibberish where Latin, or English for that matter, is concerned.  Sometimes it is what it is, as we like to say, and in this case, this rumor spreading like wildfire is nothing more than a hoax.  While no one but the beaming parents know the real reason behind the name selection, a little Beyonce and Jay-Z history might clear things up.  First of all, many Beyonce fans think that Ivy comes from “IV,” or the Roman numeral for 4.  Both Jay-Z and Beyonce were born on the fourth day of the month, and Beyonce recently released an album simply title “Four.”  And what about the Blue?  Jay-Z has publicly admitted his affection for the color, and he used the term Blueprint in more than one album title.

Additionally, there is a new rumor going around that Oprah Winfrey is the godmother of Blue Ivy.  Oprah Winfrey’s people have already responding saying that they know nothing of this.  In fact, Oprah Winfrey was winging away to South Africa when baby Blue was born and was not involved in the affair at all.

Sometimes it is what it is.  Everyone’s looking for a scoop and a big story, even if they have to make up the details.  Fortunately, Common Sense Conspiracy is looking out for you.
