White, male, 21 here. It seems whoever said that wasn't too far off.

I guess we have to take language barriers into consideration as well, I would be interested to know how many Asian CTers there are using other boards.

White Male here, 49.

I might not count.

I don't really subscribe much to conspiracy theories.

I’m a strong believer in the “Principle of Parsimony.”

I am male, 27, Hispanic (Spanish-Italian descent) and below middle class (I'd say about $28,000/yr).

But as for all of my like-minded friends, they trend to be white and sort of poor, slacker types.

Male, caucasian, born in the 50's. I remember I had a copy of Life magazine when I was a kid that was a special on UFOs. Seems most of my life has been uneventful as for as seeing something really unexplained but I've always kept an eye open. I always been a science and outdoors type. Technology has changed the game.

Well im 17 and black(well brown). I guess the reason there arent that many minorties into the whole conspiracy thing is because the majority of us live in pretty harsh,real realities.Basically what i mean is a young black guy living in the ghetto has more important down-to-earth things to worry about than a middle class suburban white teenager does.

So there are no middle class suburban minority teenagers in the U.S.? No white people in the ghetto?

I'm sure you meant well, but there has to be a better way for you to express these feelings. No offense- But it sounds kinda racist the way you have brushed your thoughts with such broad strokes sorry.

i KNEW someone would find a way to make an issue out of this simple question! it was a simple poll, but thre isn't a function for those on these forums, so i thought i would ask. there are a lot of people, of all colours and ages that have reasons not to write on the ATS, and people that do write on them, i was just wondering who does, not why other don't.

Don't worry. There are issues inherent and some people have less tact than you and I. All good insights! Only partly devolved to a singles site. I've got nothing much to add. what a splendidly succesful thread.

We're not all white teenagers. Most of the white teenagers that I know (and black teenagers, too, for that matter) can't even find their own country on a map of the world, never mind discuss current events.

I don't know if being white and young has anything to do with the predominace of conspiracy theories per se. I think that at this particular meeting point there happen to be a lot of the aforementioned due to the fact that said persons have a higher ratio per-capita of internet access and leisure time. Go into a lower income area and you'll find lots of conspiracy theories- they're just transmitted orally and not posted on the internet. You are looking at an effect, not a cause.

As for conspiracy theories in general, I think that in a large part they have filled a psychological void in our modern culture. That is, they have supplanted the ancient mythologies of Gods and Devils, in an attempt to explain our often irrational world.

Well it started out about 9/11 theorists, being us. It's expanded a bit to ATSers in general. I think its relevant. Not DIRECTLY, of course, but indicrectly, understanding us, who we are and wondering what that means.
Thanks all of you for weighing in. A bit more diversity than I expected. Perhaps a few other white guys deciding "No way, we're diverse..." but then see all the others and go "hmmm, I'm gonna back outa here."
