Australian conspiracy theorists are in overdrive per this report in the Sydney Morning Herald:

”I am definitely not a CIA spy.” So said one of the country’s leading CSIRO scientists last night as politics in Canberra took a definite turn to barmy.

Research into legumes might not seem an obvious front to conceal a spy ring, but then again, the spooks are trained to hide in plain sight.

Why else would the Rockefeller Foundation – the American philanthropic fund accused by mining magnate Clive Palmer of plotting with CIA backing to silence Australia’s mining boom – have invested $142,118 in scientist TJ Higgins?…

Alan Miller is an affable young Aussie who claims to be Jesus Christ returned to Earth. (And his girlfriend says she’s Mary Magdalene to boot.) Miller has amassed several dozen worshipers, “television soap stars” among them, who have moved onto his sixteen-acre woodland compound in Queensland to be closer to their prophet.

Truth Is Out ThereVia Reuters:

Australia’s military has lost its X-Files, detailing sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs, across the country, a newspaper report said on Tuesday.

After a two-month search in response to a newspaper Freedom of Information (FOI) request, which forces government officials to release documents of public interest, Australia’s Department of Defence had been unable to locate the files, the Sydney Morning Herald said.

“The files could not be located and Headquarters Air Command formally advised that this file is deemed lost,” the department’s FOI assistant director, Natalie Carpenter, told the paper. Defence officials could not be contacted by Reuters.

The only file Defence had been able to locate was a folder called: “Report on UFOs/Strange Occurrences and Phenomena in Woomera,” a military weapons testing range in the center of Australia’s vast outback, Carpenter said.

What can I say, true believers, it is science. Daniel Fraser reports on ABC News:
