Well a conspiracy theory is hard to define by the nature of conspiracy itself.
But I do know that it is not making up any old thing and throwing it into the ring and claiming with indignant arrogance that everyone must accept it.
It seems that a lot of people think that making up any old claim, without any reasoning or cause for it to be so, and then finding evidence for it -
despite the evidence not being there or being proven wrong - is a conspiracy. And if you don't agree with them then you're an agent or a shill.
Usually accompanied with "Well why are you on ATS then?" if you don't swallow it hook, line and sinker.
These people I consider paranoid. Deluded people, but sadly, there seem to be a lot of them and they seem to add to each others paranoia. Kind of like
if there are so many people falling for a hoax youtube video, it somehow makes the hoax not a hoax any more. As if in numbers, they make up reality.
A lack of intelligence seems to be a common trait...
