Destiny or Illuminati?
I swear I should start Rio de Janeiro taxi cab confessions, only from the other way around. I just keep running into interesting or creepy cab drivers.
Lucky for me, my taxi man yesterday was interesting instead of creepy. I was running late, a very unusual thing in my life, and it was raining. Not to mention that I still had to drop off my oldest at his uncle´s place before I could head to my destination. I jumped into a cab to solve the rain/time/effort issue.
The conversation started out normal enough. Where are you from? Then it took a little turn. Should I be surprised.
Have you heard of the Illuminati? Of course I have! I´ve read that Dan Brown book.
No no, more than a book. I was schooled by my Evangelical conspiracy theory believing driver. Apparently the world is controlled by 33 families. They control all the governments. That´s why that nice man Obama can´t seem to produce the change he promised.
He also informed me that he and his family are church going people but that´s with the understanding that the Illuminati do control it. The importance is that he believes in God and you have to play the game. riiigghht
As he continued, I realized that this guy was incredibly up to date with international and local news and has an amazing understanding of history... well, expect for the whole Illuminati thing.
Then again, who am I judge. He could very well be right. If my blog should disappear and you are randomly directed to a page full of symbols, we will all know who to blame!
