Asking for evidence to back up a claim makes one a disinfo agent?
So what does that make someone who just blindly believes everything he or she is told?
Also chapter how do i know you are not a disinfo saying im a disinfo to make people not reply to my thread because they think i want to know their ideas about it?

Now the skeptics can be seperated into several categories:
1. Those who deny even when faced with irrefutable proof because that belief would mean admitting to something that goes against what they want to believe.
2. Those who deny because they have never had an "in your face" belief changing experience.
3. Those who deny because it is more "mainstream" and are trying to hang with the "in" crowd.
4. Those who deny due to a mental safety response that would keep them insulated from stressful possible truth.
5. Those who enjoy taking the opposite side.
6. Those who are turned on or excited by calling others beliefs crazy.
7. Those who find that having nothing to prove is a much easier position to take than proving something.
Did I miss any?

Just get some actual objective evidence. That's it. If you have that, no-one can call you a nut. The problem is most conspiracy theorists don't have any other than vague feelings and paranoid delusions.
You'll notice that one common factor of all conspiracy theories that have turned out to be conspiracy facts is they have actual evidence.
If you don't have evidence, it's irrational to claim it exists.
