I think the point people miss with a tin foil hat meme like this one above is that the very people being made fun of are the very ones who tried to wake others up and actually ended up saving the day. There is another point being made with these characters that goes over the head because the laughter is the main reaction.
In the image above from the movie “Signs” you have Morgan, Merrill and Bo. Morgan kept trying to tell his family that “aliens” were coming and he soaked up all the information he could on the subject via books etc. Merrill, appearing to not have any prospects actually has skills that go unnoticed until needed. Bo, won’t drink water because she knows there is something about it and leaves glasses of it sitting around the house while the family just thinks she is quirky and has “issues”.
Que “aliens” arriving and the family has barricaded themselves until the invaders are gone but one alien remains behind. What gets this family through it? Well, first of all Morgan was proved right when what he was saying was going to happen actually did and they have some knowledge from what he has learned. When this leftover enters their home it is Merrill who swings away at the alien knocking him down and every time he falls into the furniture water that Bo left sitting around the house falls on it and the combination of it all ends up killing it. These three are actually the ones who saved the day for the family. Of course there is more to the story line but this is simply about the three who are viewed as the wacky “conspiracy minded”.
I think the point being made here by Shyamalan is that the very ones being laughed at and not being taken seriously are in fact the ones who hold the know how and knowledge and had it BEFORE the situation happened.
Not only in this film, but in shows like the X Files, Millennium, and how about good ole Charlie Frost in 2012? Charlie was right all along and no one listened until it all went down. On the face of it, these writers show how those who hold the truth are viewed as the crazies and no one listens to them until it is too late. In some cases however, the writers do this on purpose because of ulterior motives to groups they may be affiliated with and those groups know that the best way to hide something is out in the open and if you make those who see the truth into nut jobs you can keep on hiding it but, that would be a post for another day.

Of course this is all tongue in cheek but people should think about it the next time they come at someone for being what they deem to be a “conspiracy theorist”. Maybe those “conspiracy theorists” are the ones who are actually using their brains and do the thinking!
On the more serious side, the ONLY truth and, the ONLY way to salvation and, the ONLY way to avoid the wrath getting ready to fall on this whole Earth is salvation in JESUS! God’s word and his foretelling prophecy is the ONLY truth. Read his word if you want to know what is really going on in this world.
This late in the game, you need to take the warnings that believers are shouting at you from the rooftops as truth and, call out to Jesus to save you NOW! Time is fleeting away from you. TODAY is the day for salvation!
Don’t be left on top of a mountain with water rushing at you as the earth cracks open and meteors are falling or trapped in your house while a demon tramps all about your home thinking that he is an “alien” or in the middle of world war 3. Don’t be left behind!
Allow Jesus to take you out of the wrath BEFOREHAND because all those “crazy Christian conspiracy theorists” won’t be here to help you after it begins! You will be on your own living in the darkest time this Earth has ever seen. You can still turn to Jesus but it won’t be an easy life trying to endure and living out your salvation with fear and trembling for those 7 years.
1 Corinthians 1:25-29
For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.
You are running out of time to make the ONLY wise choice of your lifetime…
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. ~ Proverbs 14:12 (spiritual eternity and otherwise)
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice. ~ Proverbs 12:15
Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved…. ~ Acts 16:30-32
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ~ John 14:6
