That is why I stick only to evidence and documents that can be verified. I don't like conspiracy theory because most of them are hardly theories.
They are hypotheses at best, and usually have little to no evidence or data supporting the hypothesis. Then there's the paranoia(Which can be
unhealthy) of others which is detrimental to the research project. I understand that people are indeed threatened by the government over many things.
But one must understand that alot of the people that make these claims are not under any undue duress, or direct threat, they are mentally unstable,
and delving into the murky world of conspiracy can exacerbate said instability.
For me, it has been healthier to stick to the facts. FOIA documents, news articles, witness testimony, scientific data(telemetry, radar detections,
weather conditions, astronomical events, scientific journals, space mission data, military exercise data etc... ). This actually sheds more light on
things than one gives credit for. This process is scientific and removes alot of the muck that allows for wild speculations, and paranoid musings. It
is easy to lose perspective when researching conspiratorial topics. That loss of perspective tends to get the better of many people within the field
of Alien and UFO research.
