people who discount all conspiracy theorists as lunatics with tin-foil hats on are as bad as conspiracy theorists who believe lizardmen secretly control the world using technology from hell that allows them to control minds

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?


Ha! You're not gonna fool me! I know you work for the government and are trying to dupe people into divulging information about themselves so that you can create dossiers about them, and follow them everywhere!

You Homeland Security Communist Dictator!

Well not all Conspiracies are bs. Some turn out to be true. There usually not that far fetched though...

I used to laugh at conspiracy theorists too, but as soon as Edward Snowden leaked all of those documents, they were proven right. So, I'm not sure about who to believe.

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?

i find your post to be troubling and disturbing as hell.so, you dont care if the gov is spying on because is for your own good(lol)? the same thing thought the east germans, the soviets,the north koreans,the cubans and all the crackpot dictatorships that have ever existed.by that same reasoning why dont you allow me to live in your house and watch you to see if you dont do anything wrong.a free society or one that touts itself has one has NO business in spying on its own citizens.so your cool if we live in a benign dicatotorship as long as you have comforts,i wonder if the founding fathers would have found that acceptable as well...

btw, the term tin foiled hat or conspiracy theorist was term made up by the abc's agencies to discredit those people that disagreed with the loneman assassination theory of JFK and yes conspiracy theorists do the thinking that you must be doing as a citizen.granted there are really wild conspiracies theories out there but some have been proven true over time.questioning your government is a right that Americans enjoy granted by natural law and the constitution of the u.s.a

A few conspiracy theories are somewhat viable but can still be put down with some thought. Most conspiracy theories are just stupid.

Some are just bonkers.

'The moon landings were fake!'

'The 11+ is fake, they only let the children they want into Grammar Schools - they don't look at the test scores!'
(I actually know someone who believes this lol, just because their child didn't pass XD)

'The Illuminati still exists!!!'

Maybe the accuracy of his other predictions
will reassure you?

some of his predictions aren't very correct. The Olympics are still going on after all, plus I dont think the wiki is a good source since most of these predictions sound like opinions..

Steins;Gate totally disproved this. We're all safe now.

Best theory that I've heard?

AIDS was part of an eoffort to suppress anti-vietnam sentiments.

First outbreaks appeared in the 70's, approximately the same number of years after the "summer of love (1969) as its incubation period.


I like conspiracy theories and occultist theories as plot lines in stories (also check out Occult Academy for some of that if you like it), but as for real life theorists... They're generally paranoid and stupid people spouting them.

also watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hug0rfFC_L8


what? Isnt Steins;Gate some anime? How does it disprove this when the year 2015 hasn't even finished yet...

Conspiracies make us feel, "at least somebody has control." Instead of it all being random.

Some are dumb, like there are people out there that believe the moon is a hologram, lol wtf.
Then others have more interesting facts to them, like 9/11 being a false flag just to start a war.

False flag right so which is more plausible terrorist trained to fly and than flying planes into builds that they think will bring down the American system, because they truly fail to understand how America works. This happening because the administration at the time refused to acknowledge the warnings that had been given about this possibility.

Or

The American government killing it own citizens and covering it up. Let me point out someone else has already mentioned Edward Snowden I will also point out Chelsae Manning as well as the older whistle blower Mark Felt. The US government holds a secret about as well as a sieve holds water, all it takes is one person willing to talk. If you believe it can put together a cover up for such an action and believe that it can't keep secrets you are suffering from doublethink. Something that earth shattering would not stay secret, which is the big problem with conspiracies someone will always talk in the end.

Most of the folks pushing a conspiracy are selling something be it a book or a TV show look at what is really motivating them. The more they push it the worse their books are selling.

I hate to point this out to you but you don't need to melt steel to have it fail. All you need to do is reach a temperature of 800 degrees C or above for structural steel to fail. Jet fuel combined with the other burnable materials are more than enough to get you there. Than you just let gravity and weight take it's course and you get the pancaking that happened.


You must be fun at parties. (cough, you probably didn't get the joke)
