I think there are obviously extremes and some people go too far and say and believe things which go into pure fantasy. There are some real
conspiracies out there but some of what I see on ATS I think is ignorant uninformed paranoid ramblings from people who could read a non fiction book
once in a while. And I question if they finished high school or have ever seen a real science book.
Since looking at this site I've never seen so many references to CIA NSA FEMA illuminati freemasons secret government UN world bank TPTB (one of my
favorites which means?) big oil lizard men greys IMF and it goes on and on basically any organisation is part of the global conspiracy to keep the
people in check and guard the secret tech or whatever. No evidence required because it's all a big cover up. Then there are the strange free energy
perpetual motion over unity people who think it's some kind of religion and is exempt from reality.
Sometimes you will read something insightful and then at the end they will say and the lizard men know this and you just start laughing.
My all time favorite conspiracy is probably the super Nazis which can do anything and have a base at the centre of the Earth.
I think some kind of understanding of basic history and science helps people have some kind of basis for reality to judge what is possible and
plausible in the real world. Without a decent level of basic education a whole range of incredible fantastic conspiracy theories are able to spring to
