Sure, some are. Conspiracy theorists though tend to hold a monological belief system that an elite group of people control world events for their own selfish purposes. Conspiracy theorists also believe they have some special ability to see what others cannot. This monological story they believe in is why they tend to believe in almost every conspiracy theory. It's a coping mechanism for people who cannot accept that bad things happen and sometimes we have no control over it.

(GENETICALLY-MODIFIED-ORGANISMS)..! You know , some of the so called (FOODS) require (PATENTS)..! ..
Does this not make one .....(THINK)..?

(FLUORIDES)....! OK , Veterans , who remembers the (FLOURIDE) pills they made you chew up and spit (OUT) ..?
Not made for human consumption , not to be (INJESTED)..!
Why....do they put this in out (WATER)...? Hmmm..?

(CHEM-TRAILS)....does any body know these men are suited up,
Head to toe , with (OXOGEN) with-in the very planes that deliver
These wonderful (CHEMICALS)..?

(MONSANTO's)...Why is more than 60% of the worlds other nations (BANNING) the use of anything to do with (MONSANTO's) etc. ...?

(PUTIN) yeap , USSR , MENTIONED A POSSIBLE WW III because
Of these chemicals killing of the natural Balance , harmony , mother natures way of growing things..(FOOD)..?

Do you have children , grand children ..? We are what we (EAT , DRINK , BREATH)...! They are ,(these chemicals ) are killing off the worlds (BEE) populations..! No (POLLINATION) no natural cycle of growing (ANYTHING)..!

I am no MESSIAH , it is not my responsibility to save the planet.!
I can only hope some is is tending and thinking..!

Debunkers consistently refute all conspiracies. They support the party line. Nothing out of the norm. In 1902, these types proclaimed man would never fly.

Then there are the conspiracy theorists who are open to conspiracies and spend a lot of time thinking about them.

No matter what the topic, they never switch sides.

Debunkers love to debunk. Conspiracy theorists love to question everything.

Most are not true but then sometimes not everything is as it appears to be.

Keep a healthy skepticism but do not waste time on what cannot be proven.

For example, some people are still obsessed with the Kennedy assassination. All parties involved are probably dead by now; what difference would it make if a new truth was uncovered?

There certainly have been some very interesting (and humorous) ones put forth here.

It's not paranoia, if they really are after you.

Just the Olympian gods for the modern age, invisible powers acting on humanity; random, sometimes benign, sometimes malignant doing thing that people see but can't make sense of. The feeling that someone is "doing things" and that there are "reasons" but you can never walk up to some dude in a toga and catch him throwing a lightning bolt or visiting your wife at night in the shape of a bull.

And I am not saying that a lot of the economic activity in the world is not non random. Read up on the business side of the Olympics or the UN aid programs. I just don't think that there is a secret group that controls everything. Just a lot of people controlling whaterver piece of anything they can their hooks into.

Just because they're after you, it doesn't mean you aren't paranoid.


OP, It's the same answer to this question.
Is all documented history true?


Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity, but don't rule out malice

This is an idiotic summary.

Despite what your fifth grade teacher told you, there really IS a such thing as a stupid question. Conspiracy theorists always ask stupid questions.

Context is the key. So many conspiracy theorist like to take the little tidbits offered up by Infowars and pretend that they have just as good a grasp on the subject as someone who has read multiple books on the topic. Blaming a specific group (even if they are unseen) is way, way easier than taking the time to understand the subject matter.

This is a big reason why any debate with them keeps getting circled back around to **** they think they know (chem-trails, building 7, Israel....something something....)

Not only that but trying to say that people who didn't believe manned flight was possible in 1902 and people today who don't believe there are Reptilian Overlords, are the same kind of people, was a tad silly.

Conspiracy theories are a normal reaction to earned distrust in the popular explanation of things.

Personally, I'm thankful we have the "tinfoil hat" brigade, because without them, many of us aren't alerted to consider certain things in more depth, or from a different perspective.

The bottom line here, is we seem to be in an age where truth doesn't seem to be held in the highest regard, because attaining an objective is more important than honor. Of course, those who do these things are not going to admit it......to the contrary, they are going to vehemently deny it. One of the standard methods of deflecting attention away from dishonesty, is to accuse those who attempt to expose it, of promoting a conspiracy theory!
