People who do not blindly believe everything they are told are not crazy. It is the ones who believe things that they are told are real that seem to be nuts. But of course, some people who have gone nuts also start believing in conspiracies. Here we try to test if a conspiracy is real, but often people here do use evidence that is not pertinent to the investigation, I guess that is normal in our society though, more people do that than don't.

There has been many generations of social conditioning, we do not always know what is real, we cannot comprehend reality. Some deceptions were started many centuries ago to make us get along better together, some deceptions were created to make us believe that the people of some other country is evil, but that is not the case. Their leaders are corrupt and have brainwashed many of the people, many do know the crap they are fed is not real though. Our country's leadership also feeds us crap, war is very profitable for some people and it stirs fear in the citizens so they are easier to control.

Our economy is not real, it is based on belief, our medical system is a profit based system, this keeps it from being a system which truly helps the patients and society. Greed spurns deceit, so does desire to be the most powerful. Sure, there are good parts to our society, I am a poor conspiracy theorist, I do not get worked up over this deceptive practice. I also know there are good people mixed in....maybe in twenty years there won't be anymore.

I haven't really found a good conspiracy yet, most things are just people discovering some truth and then improperly interpretting the whole thing as truth. Or of course, finding a falsity in something then saying the whole thing is corrupt because of that. Yes, there is deception everywhere, yes, most of us cannot comprehend how it would be if it was not there. Just because something is a lie does not mean there was not a reason for that lie being put there in government, maybe they wanted to avoid the slip slide effect something would have on society. Right now we are on a slip slide to disaster if we cannot pull our citizens together. Russia would love it if there was a revolution here, they would laugh all the way to the bank, China and Russia would be the two major powers in the world.

Is what I say a conspiracy? no, facts of society and economics and possibly a little prediction of the future. There will always be someone trying to seize power in this world. The EU is actually bringing on their own destruction, I feel following that small group of people running the EU is unwise myself.

Every theory starts as a hypothesis once some facts have been found it advances to a theory. A hypothesis is a suggested solution for an unexplained occurrence that doesn't fit into a currently accepted theory. What you have proposed is B.S. that you read somewhere.a reply to: TheBluePill

Just a massive SnF for a amazing thread, I found it very interesting.

Thanks.


How unsurprising.

You two are both experiencing a "psychotic episode" if you think this will influence anyone in the intended direction.

Just the opposite.

This looks like someone's grad project from CIA school.

A crude blunt instrument of social engineering at best.

Totally transparent to the point of satire.

Yes, we should all quickly turn on CNN and just accept what they say as undisputed facts.

If we don't we will wind up eating someone's face.

I really hate when people take bad acts of a few people (whether it's Muslims, transgenders ect) and hold up that small sample as "proof" the entire group is bad.

I could hold up a few studies and examples from virtually ANY group over 100 people.

This goes from conservative to liberal....

It's no mystery that the conspiracy crowd has a higher incidence of mental illness than the general population. It's blatantly obvious from reading the posts on this forum.

Most people who look up conspiracies to find hidden truth or meaning in life often end up depressed and paranoid.



You DO realize that a few examples of a large populations isn't "proof" of what most people end up doing?

What you go take an introductory stat class and then come back and apologize.

But if you are still into specific examples your handful of examples are NOTHING compared to the MILLIONS of people who died in wars or religious persecution just because the masses did NOT question authority.

If a person holds an irrational view which is a conspiracy, then the problem has nothing to do with conspiracy, the person is just irrational. If he does more crazy sh*, then he just has problems. Nothing to do with conspiracies - of which many are real. Especially the BIG, really BIG international one.

I just want to clear out I'm not trying to attack anybody who believe in conspiracies , My personal opinion is that people who believe in conspiracies are out of touch with reality , I'm not saying that in a mean way it's just my opinion.

Disturbing topic, I think it is possible that people with mental issues, paranoia, delusions etc seek validation within online "conspiracy" venues and often find it driving them further into the abyss of insanity.

A conspiracy theorist explores alternative theories seeking evidence or proof to support a theory, the insane will accept unproven theories as fact and reject any evidence that conflicts with their accepted theory. Fine lines between reality and delusional reality in conspiracy theories.

People are often insane before getting involved in conspiracy theories, not driven insane by getting involved in conspiracy theories.

Your opinion is totally unsupported by real evidence.

You can say that about any group of people who you don't agree with. The left and the right both accuse each side of not being based in reality.

If you want dangerous "opinions", actually yours is pretty dangerous.

By labeling a group of people as "out of touch with reality" and "dangerous", you hold the door open to abuse of power.
Horrible, horrible things were down under the guise of "helping" deluded people.

If you don't agree with someone, why don't you argue facts instead of labeling them as crazy.

What about the ones that actually happened?

I don't mean the ones that people simply claim are real, but the ones that come to light decades after the fact.

Not believing what we are "told" is a generally universal trait alongside lack of trust. That same behavior is very common in those that "lose it," so to speak, but is clearly not indicative of a cause and effect relationship. If someone trusts everything they are told blindly, or conversely, decides to question things a bit more in depth, it is difficult to extrapolate out into fringe cases.

That said, its certainly no surprise which members love threads like this. I'd say there is a significantly higher degree of predictability and consistency there, than any attempts to make links in the OP.

It depends millions of sane religious people for example still believe in the "biblical end times" and that the world could end tomorrow.

Were they insane before they had those irrational beliefs or could they perhaps have been indoctrinated to think that way?

Sometimes it is amazing how people's conception of life is completely backwards from reality. You try and link conspiracy theorists with some type of mental deficiency. Does that make you feel better? I have a sneaking suspicion that the 'blue pills' are probably closer to some type of mental disorder compared to conspiracy theorist.

What is a blue pill person? Someone who takes our government at face value? Someone who doesn't believe in hidden motives for atrocities but instead believes in the official narrative? Someone who is unable to embrace an open mind and will just believe whatever the MSM is telling them because that is comforting?

It must be unsettling to your institution of belief, and a belief is all it is, when facts start popping up that contradicts the lies. Do you remember when you closed your mind completely to bask in the comfort of authority? It must be a very cozy world to believe the lies.

If there is one cause above all others holding back the maturation of the human race, it is the blue pills. The people that buy the official story line hook, line and sinker.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

What is a blue pill to you? Why do you use that as your handle?

I agree with you I think conmen like Alex Jones , David Icke and Steven Greer are horrible people although anybody that associate themselves with any group/ideology regardless are lost and probably don't have any real goals in life.

Are there any conspiracies that are positive? or is it all just based on fear & negativity?

So this thread is all about comfort and ease of mind. You have no desire to find out if the story occurred the way they said it did? You have absolutely no desire to look behind the curtain. Wrap yourself up in that left brain thinking that doesn't require original effort. Just memorize and regurgitate what they want you to. Believe what they want you to. Well, at least you're being honest now.

Well, lets take a hypothetical conspiracy situation. A group is doing something that they wish to keep hidden.

For the most part, why would they hide something that is positive? Even in a hypothetical situation, a conspiracy is undertaken to hide the true nature of events, or what really happened, etc. Why would it be obfuscated if there would be widespread support? Beyond that, why would most people even care if groups were doing good things in secret? But, they most certainly would if those groups were doing "bad" things.

Kind of silly, right?

That said, there undoubtedly are "positive" conspiracies and conspirators. There's just not much to talk about there. If someone(s), say, conspired to bring a new type of energy generator to the market.. the discussion would revolve more around the generator than the conspiracy that made it happen.
