Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 12 Num. 21 ======================================= ("Quid coniuratio est?")
Associated Press (AP) reports (7/15/98) on current ceremonies in Russia involving the formal burial of supposed remains of Tsar Nicholas II and members of the Russian royal family. But several hundred demonstrators in St. Petersburg marched in protest: "The marchers don't believe the bones are those of the royal family..." 
"The Russian Orthodox Church has refused to accept [DNA test results which] scientists believe has conclusively proven the authenticity of the remains." 
Some other experts are claiming that "the discovery of the [supposedly royal] remains in 1991 was a KGB-inspired fraud." 
The controversy raging in Russia over whether or not the bones are those of certain Romanovs, supposedly murdered by Bolsheviks at Ekaterinburg in 1918, has caused Russian president Boris Yeltsin to abruptly cancel his plans to attend the burial ceremony.
Remains of two of the Romanov children, Alexei and Maria, have never officially been found.
Yet strong evidence throughout the years consistently points to at least two of the Romanov children, Alexei and Anastasia, as having survived the supposed 1918 "mass execution" and having lived for decades thereafter. (See, for example, the book "The File on the Tsar" by Anthony Summers and Tom Mangold. ISBN: 0-06-012807-0.)
So why is this important? Because (1) there =is= such a thing as "the truth," and (2) because the truth matters. We know that, contrary to pronouncements by academic eggheads, that the truth is not always "subjective." For example, 2 + 2 = 4; there's nothing "subjective" about it. See also the little book, "Meditations," by Rene Descartes to convince yourself that, yes, there is such a thing as "the truth." As to whether or not the truth matters, that is harder to prove. But consider that for centuries the pursuit of truth has been regarded as =the= most important occupation. "There is no religion higher than truth." Or, as inscribed on the door of the Bishop Payne Library, Virginia Theological Seminary:
Seek the truth
Come whence it may
Cost what it will.
So Conspiracy Nation (CN) keeps plugging away, offering counterpoint to a universe of lies constantly propagated by supposed "intellectuals." CN is just silly enough to believe that the truth might actually matter. And the truth is that not all of the Romanovs, and even none of the Romanovs, were murdered in 1918 at Ekaterinburg.
The motive for this massive, ongoing cover-up of the actual fate of the Romanovs seems to be based on greed. Tsar "Nicholas was in theory the richest man in the world with eight magnificent palaces, a staff of 15,000 and crown property estimated at between eight and ten billion pounds."  Surviving Romanovs would have laid claim to that property, much of it consisting of billions of dollars worth of gold and precious gems. But if the false claim that the Tsar and his family had all died at Ekaterinburg came to be accepted, then "someone else" could claim the vast treasure. Likely suspects for the "someone else" would be the British royals, the German royals, and the Rockefellers. Maybe they "divied up the loot" between themselves. We are talking here about perhaps the greatest robbery ever to have occurred in the history of the world.
See CN 4.26 for a reproduction of a United Press International (UPI) story carried initially in -- then pulled from -- the Chicago Tribune, 12/14/70: "U.S. Aided Rescue Of Czar Nicholas, British Hint." It appears that a "Sir William Wiseman, a partner in the New York banking house of Kuhn, Loeb & Co." received $75,000 from the U.S. government as part of a "scheme" for a secret mission to rescue the Tsar and his family. "There is also mounting evidence that the unpublished complete text of the treaty of Brest-Litovsk... contained a guarantee from the Lenin government that no harm would come to the Romanovs..." 
Commander of "White Russian" forces, Prince Kuli-Mirza, believed that the Romanovs survived Ekaterinburg, and showed Gleb Botkin, son of the Tsar's doctor, several secret reports "according to which the imperial family had first been taken to a monastery in the province of Perm, and later sent to Denmark." 
According to the official story, 23 people were supposed to have all crammed together into the cellar of the Ipatiev House at Ekaterinburg for the "mass execution" -- 23 people -- shooters and shot -- in a room measuring 17 feet by 14 feet. 
A Captain Malinovsky of the Officer's Commission, one of the first investigators on the scene subsequent to the "mass execution," wrote this, in an official dossier: "As a result of my work on this case I became convinced that the imperial family was =alive=. It appeared to me that the Bolsheviks had shot someone in the room in order to =simulate= the murder of the imperial family..." 
There's a lot more. These (above) have been just a few examples of why so many do not believe supposed DNA evidence that the remains of the Tsar and members of his family have truly been found. "Science" is only as good as the scientist, and even scientists can be hoodwinked -- for example, by faked data and evidence.
