Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNotes — Satanic sacrifice

You know the problem with these massive conspiracy theories are that there are never enough conspirators and never enough victims.

Let's assume one group in one city that requires six sacrifices a year.

Do you really think that no one else is going to notice six babies disappearing annually? We're talking new grandparents, nosey neighbors, employers, maintenance men. Do you have any idea how hard it is to hide a pregnancy? And that's if the mother is a willing part of the conspiracy. If she's not, well, she's going to have to be disposed of as well. Now you're talking about an adult who is even more likely to be missed, especially if she is an expectant mother.

Leaving aside the mother (and possibly the father), let's see who your conspiracy would have to include. You've mentioned a doctor and nurse. I'm pretty sure that any medical people involved in such a conspiracy would be lousy at their day jobs. I mean, regular sacrifice of innocents is going to mess with someone's empathy and ability to care for others. You're going to have to have someone with the press, probably at least an editor or publisher to squash any stories. And that is only at one publication. You'll need someone high up in the command structure of the police to divert any investigation. You'll need someone to pay for all this. And you'll need a mastermind dedicated to operating from the shadows and totally committed to a sinister agenda.

Now I may not be a Satanist, but I do know a thing or two about magick. I know that the surest way to undo a secret ritual is tell other people about it, especially in a way bound to catch their attention.

Or alternatively, this King person you quote is a fabulist taking advantage of an unquestioning and very credulous audience, relishing in the attention alone.

Which do you think is more likely?

Oh for pity's sake! I just had this conversation this morning.
What satanic sacrifice cults? Where? Do you really think babies and children can disappear and no one will notice? Do you think that no one will DARE to ask questions?

Can you produce proof? Unless you are claiming that abortion equals Satanism, you've got no possible basis for your claim. Stars above, this is straight out of the Satanic panic of the 1980s. And not one of those claims then could be proven.

This is one of the most persistent and downright foolish theories on the internet. I've dealt with it time and time and time again. The claims are exactly the same and they can never be proven. In this day where cops arrest parents for leaving kids in the car for five minutes or letting the kids play in the park by themselves, the very last thing we need is another false story about the "danger to kids." I had dealt with this that morning on another board. It's a silly topic meant to provoke an unthinking emotional attack. And if someone dares question, why, how could you? After all, IT'S FOR THE CHILDREN!!!

You didn't answer the questions. Here they are again.

“What satanic sacrifice cults? Where? Do you really think babies and children can disappear and no one will notice? Do you think that no one will DARE to ask questions?”

What you did was skirt the question and make vague allusions to "resources." The funny thing is, people do have resources. They can get the word out. Their stories can be verified. Their stories can be told. There are facts and figures and evidence that can be shown. After all, that is what happened with the IRS targeting selected groups, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi. There was evidence.

So, "can you produce proof?" Where's the evidence? You're the one making the claims now.

So your proof of this grand conspiracy is that children disappear?

That's your unquestionable evidence of Satanic blood sacrifice?

Sounds like blood libel to me, except you've swapped out Jews for Satanists.
