I’ve been considering the general point of conspiracy theories lately and figured I’d get the topic out of my head and into other people’s.
Is there really any conspiracy theory that is accurate?
If there is truly a well done and organized conspiracy, then by definition, none of us know about it. Only once the conspiracy starts to collapse and
information leaks to those not involved does it make its way to ATS or the general public.
Even if there is evidence or president for a conspiracy, it must only be vague or superficial evidence, or again, its not a conspiracy.
So how does one claim a conspiracy? Is it just the fact that official stories on events don’t match facts? I’ve come to notice that often times, a
conspiracy is more of a lack of knowledge. Rather than uncover things, which can not be uncovered, conspiracies turn into stories that just fill in
Take UFOs. Phoenix and DC (1952 events) both involve mass witnessing of astounding aircraft. But that where the facts end. None of them landed and
aliens came out. None of them are known military craft. No one claimed to own them. That’s it, lack of knowledge. At this point the stories start…It
was military, it was alien, it was God, it was a magic poodle…
So is this where a conspiracy starts? Many people think the US government has intimate knowledge of these craft. How does one come to that conclusion?
Sure it would make sense if it was the government covering up aliens, or if it was experimental craft, but how does one know that? If there is a
conspiracy, how did you breach that conspiracy?
I don’t know. Sounds simple yes? Well not for most. For ages people have been looking for understanding of the world even when the facts to grasp it
are not available. For the longest time we had Gods and Tribal Leaders to answer our questions, then came science, but given experiences and event
that do not stay around for scientific experiments or fit into a religion, then what? Conspiracy theories.
I for one prefer to simple say, I don’t know. What was that silver disk in the sky? I don’t know…a silver disk is all I can say. Where is it from?
Does the Government know about it? Is it Aliens? I don’t know…all I saw was a silver disk in the sky. Was it angels? Was it extra dimensional, was it
a trick of the eye? I don’t know.
The same goes for many things. How does one make claims of a conspiracy with partial information?
And for those that think they are aware of a conspiracy…well, if you are aware of it, its not a good conspiracy. If you are just assuming there is
one, then you’ll spend to much time trying to find proof, and over look and you do stumble across.
I welcome comments.
