    Here at BA Central I see a lot of truly ridiculous conspiracy theories. Over the years thereís been the Moon Hoax, various asteroids NASA was covering up that would hit the Earth (or wipe us out somehow via electricity), and of course the end of the Earth over and over and over again.


    Yet happily, weíre still here. Yet sadly, so are these silly theories.


    A new one is making the rounds, and itís so forehead-slappingly silly that at first I ignored it. Sometimes these things die on their own, and I need not waste precious brain cells debunking them. But this one, unfortunately, is making the rounds on YouTube and Facebook, so itís time to melt it away.


    Literally. The claim is that the snow that fell on Atlanta last week wasnít actually snow. Itís unclear what these folks think the powdery white stuff was, but some of the claims involve chemtrails (of course!), mind-altering chemicals, and nanobots.
    Snow won't melt


    Here is where it gets weird. Some people went outside and made snowballs. Thenóand I have no clue who would think to do this in the first place, but there you goóthey held a lighter to the snowball. What they claimed then is that the snow didnít melt and drip away as youíd expect. Thatís odd enough, but then they saw scorch marks on the snowball! Ice canít burn, so why were there black streaks on the snowballs?


    Can you guess whatís going on here? I had my suspicions, so I decided to test this myself; over the weekend we had a lovely snowfall in Boulder, Colo., so what nature provided I utilized. Hereís the video:
