I came to think that there might be something to some of their claims, and this effect scared me.
First I just want to point out that your writing skills are superb, you have a way of putting words together in a way that flows nicely. I enjoyed the read simply due to your elegant writing style.
Now... looking through your thread history it seems like you've made your fair share of threads containing wild speculation. You even made a thread titled Reptilian Shapeshifters in the Media where you theorized that popular media figures were in fact reptilians. You have also made threads about JFK and how people are being programmed by television and how kids are being indoctrinated by schools, along with many other threads which are just as much out of the box.
So what exactly makes you so much better than the rest of us here, what gives you the right to act like you're up on a pedestal and everyone else who participates in these conspiracy forums are just delusional morons. You act all high and mighty, like you're so much more rational than everyone else here, but when you get right down to it you believe just as many conspiracy theories as the rest of us. You just see your theories as being more sane because you're the one who believes in them.
What would make you more delusional is if you believed there was no such thing as a real conspiracy and that we lived in a lollipop filled world of sunshine and rainbows. Your problem is that you see things in black and white and you overgeneralize far too much. You cannot perfectly fit all conspiracy theorists into a neat little box and say that we are all the same. You yourself are indeed a conspiracy theorist whether you admit to it or not, so you are a prime example of why you cannot fit all conspiracy theorists into a generalized box. We are all very different and we are all researching these theories for more than one reason, it goes far beyond just seeking validation or looking for a community in which we fit.edit on 27/1/2014 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)
Methodology to Madness
In fact, the whole notion of studying conspiracy theory seemed initially problematic. It was a constantly shifting community. There was no core to the group, no identical sets of values. But eventually, I often resulted to questioning them and observing from afar .
Grifter42 So, I wrote an analys of the community Had to do it for a college course, but I've done my best to write a decent study on the subject on conspiracy and the people who believe some. We're not all crazy.
So here it is:
What is a conspiracy theorist? A study in the subject
