Conspiracy theorists are either shunned by others or embraced. Which side are you? Do you find Conspiracy Theorists to be "tin foil heads/hats" or they bring up theories that could be viable?

I think that alot of people like to exaggerate speculation and confusing it for fact,not to mention alot of theories are in my opinion are based on fear and insecurity which then is blamed on someone or something in a scapegoat fashion. So It depends on the theory and the person and how he/she presents it. Some people are actually grounded in reality and are probable others are just for lack of better words dumb.

I think the majority of them are off their rockers or simply just don't know what they are talking about.


Some actually use logical reasoning and make some sense, but 90% of them are just a pain to talk to. No matter what you say, they aren't going to believe you and when they ask you questions, they aren't looking for answers.

They're annoying. Nearly all of their "theories" crumble as soon as logic is applied. The 9/11 theorists are the absolute worst.

On the other hand, some CT's can be entertaining simply because they're so fun to mock. This is especially true with sports conspiracy theorists.

some conspiracy theories are viable.

especially ones concerning Asian histories. a lot of asian countries fabricate history and paint themselves as the victims, when they are also the criminal. won't mention which countries.

i don't know, I will listen to the conspiracies and keep them into my mind but i dont know whether i believe them or not. Theres this one conspiracy story keeps me thinking: a famous time traveler named John Titor has said that there might be a nuclear war in 2015 and half of the population will die. I don't know whether this is true or not but I am keeping track with the news and everything but, the ways things are going on the news...It might happen and I am really scared of that.

I agree with this very much. Some, though, use reason and try to approach things logically, but do end up falling flat on their faces - Flat Earth Theorists, for example. These groups are a little dangerous, in my opinion, because they make sense to some people who would otherwise avoid conspiracies.

My dad is actually a bit of a conspiracy theorist. He isn't totally crazy, though - he actually manages to make some sense. He buys into the 9/11-inside-job and Kennedy conspiracies, but not really anything else. I just try to avoid those topics with him or others, honestly.

Just because you don't know what you're talking about and can't prove any of it doesn't necessarily make it wrong. Otherwise how would politics work?

I find them annoying. Even if there is a conspiracy going on behind the scenes, it doesn't really matter. So what if the moon landing was faked? So what if the government is spying on us? So what if there are aliens at area 51? Makes no difference to me.

I think the only conspiracies I would believe are the really far-fetched ones, such as people claiming to be time travelers ( looking at you Steins;Gate). Still wouldn't care though, as it doesn't concern me.

what does concern you?


@OP hmm conspiracy theories have been "proven" before, there certainly does exist real conspiracies in the classical sense, none of that is related to moon landing hoaxes, flat earthers, hollow earth theorists or any other pseudo-scientific BS for that matter.
critical point here is that these things arent BS because they are conspiracies but because of the inherent lack of meaning many of them have, just like any other pseudoscience.

Hm, things that would directly affect the lives or lifestyle of others. For example, I wouldn't care if our government became a dictatorship, as long as people could live simply and happily. But if our government was going out of their way to make our lives miserable, then I would certainly care.

Things like spying, moon landing faking, and hiding aliens, if true, are done for our own good. So, whether or not it is happening should not make me worried, right?

Depends on what theory, some are so abnotioas that it's just fun the read the pure stupidity in them. Like for instance the Illuminati theories have gone so far off track to the point where theories goes strait against what they originally stood for, originally they were a organisation that wanted to bring people more freedoms by stopping government spying and stop religious influence by embracing science. Their logo was also the owl of minerva not the pyramid thing we see today... But I guess the foiltards doesn't want you to know the truth...
