Take 9/11 for example, I do not believe the official story however none of the conspiracies have me convinced so I have faith that the official story is wrong, but i cannot prove it, if i could i would be one of the most famous faces on earth.

HAHA that’s funny as a word I am not allowed to say on ATS, i think this thread would be much more interesting if we has some of the more hardcore conspiracy theorists in the discussion.

Do you think if i told the ATS people on the 9/11 forum that i had received just such a pay off they might believe it?
No-one designed these great faiths with all their clever tricks. rather, they evolved gradually by memetic selection. But nowadays, people deliberately use memetic tricks to spread religions and make money. Their techniques of memetic engineering are derived from long experience and research, and are similar to those used in propaganda, and marketing; with radio, television, and the Internet, their memes can spread far further and faster than ever before. Billy Graham's style of tele- evangelism is a good example. he starts by evoking fear, reminding people of all the terrible things happening in the world and of their own impotence and mortality. He presents science as having no answers and as a cause of the world's ills, and then persuades people to surrender to the all-powerful God who is their only hope of salvation. the experience of surrender raises powerful emotions and people turn to god in huge numbers.
Tribal marketing n. A marketing strategy that attempts to create social groups or communities that are centered around a product or service. The credo of tribal marketing is that postmodern people are looking for products and services that not only enable them to be freer, but can also link them to others, to a community, to a tribe.
