While it's true there are people that conspire. The ones listed by the OP were not uncovered by ATS members. Many of them were uncovered by the PTB itself. The ones we aren't supposed to trust. Others were exposed by the MSM, who is supposedly deluding us.

Sitting in an armchair basing conspiracy theories on YouTube videos and websites that are unreliable or out to make money is a lot different than the responsible investigation and subsequent exposure of the conspiracies listed by the OP. Nowadays, we are bombarded by half baked theories and hoaxers. Weeding through this creates a diversion from real concerns and is not healthy. ATS would do well to ban repeated offenders, that is, those who consistently miss the mark of honesty and sound reasoning when posting theories.

More and more this site loses credibility. I read less and believe less than half of what I read.

Just sayin.

Yet some people...Yes even ATSers condemn people for "out of the realm of possibility" conspiracies??

Obama birth certificate
9/11
Osama Bin Laden
HAARP
Bush/Cheney administration
Aliens/UFO's

I mean the list goes on and on and there are WAAAAAY too many people who refuse to even consider the possibilty of something other than the "official story"


I might point out that many of those out poo-pooing the things on your list are shills. Some may be merely unable to accept the implications and therefore deny it regardless of information, but many, as I said, are here with the express purpose of creating the impression that many think the evidence is meaningless and that We are all crazy.

There are many conspiracies throughout history. But for some reason most people seem to think your crazy if you believe any are happening now. I really don't get it.


I had to quote this again! I'm with You. I don't grasp the idea that, sure, there's LOTS of evidence of past conspiracy - history is replete with examples - but there's no conspiracy NOW!

I'm not sure how They rationalize that. Somehow Humans have ended any motive to conspire? I haven't seen that. In fact, I see burgeoning evidence of motive to conspire. So why would anyOne think no One is conspiring now???

I guess it's an inability to face the implications.

I'll bet it was NOT the PTB that did the discovering. Maybe higher in the ranks of the enslaved did the discovering, but TPTB Themselves... Not.

And do You suppose that TPTB might not have people deliberately adding to this confusion? I'm betting They do. Banning will not solve the issues. "New" users will pop up that speak and act much like the "banned" people... The best We can hope for is that Our ability to discern is well honed.

Only by deliberate design, I say. ATS is a target because it hits so close to home. I read much and look for patterns. I'm willing to wade through the tripe They (Their minions) put out here in an effort to marginalize the concept that being Conspiracy Aware is insane either by stating so or by putting totally whackadoodle ideas out to drain energy.

It makes sense to consider the possibility that TPTP may tell on themselves or leak a conspiracy for strategic reasons. Too assume every story we read in the MSM is somehow backed by such conspiracy borders on paranoia.

I choose to consider the input and make a reasonable judgement on the validity of the news, whatever it is. Reading ATS, you would think that every headline is some sort of conspiracy or dis-information. IMO this simply isn't the case and less than 1% of the headlines is part of some agenda to make us think or act in a certain way.

That said, I can tell you from personal experience that the press usually gets the details wrong on the first cut. This isn't dis-info or conspiracy, it's incompetence.

While what you said has some truth to it, the point of this thread was not to say "Hey look what ATS uncovered" It was to give examples of various conspiracies that have happened in the past for the people who think that they are a figment of the imagination. From the msm news of late to people in your personal life who mock you becasue you look into conspiracy theories. They happened in the past and they are happening now.

Yes there are a lot of half baked theroies and hoaxers but it is the job of the truth seeker to weed through the junk and try and get to the bottom of the theories that have overwhelming evidence to support them. There are just as many credible people trying to get to the bottom of things as there are who hoax, maybe even more. I for one do not let them discourage me in my quest for truth and knowledge.
