One instance where the belief in conspiracy theories can be hazardous to your health:
Bolstering years of reports that many black Americans believe AIDS is a plot against them, the most extensive survey of its kind suggests that the men most likely to believe such a conspiracy theory are the least likely to use condoms.
What is interesting about this, is that it is totally illogical. Even if you believe that AIDS is a plot, you would still want to protect yourself from it anyway.

We read and understand your theories yet some of us reject them! That's not ignorance but a careful review of facts on both sides and making an informed decision on what to believe. I think people are taking the noble goal of this site to deny ignorance and twisting it to attack anyone who doesn't believe in their far-out theories.
