  • I enjoy the conspiracy theories, especially I think that @Erfisflati is doing a great job! I don't personally believe in these theories, but find many of them entertaining and I like how he challenges conventional views (with attempts of presenting evidence).

    The fact that alternative views have been labeled conspiracy theory, and over time, the media has given this term a derogatory meaning is conspiracy fact. The idea that two or more people can meet in secret to devise a nefarious plot shouldn't be dismissed, especially without examining the evidence.

  • Conspiracy theories have been promoted and demoted by the news media.

    Promoted, because they be having guests come on who seem to have their own conspiracy theories and share it throughout the network.

    Demoted, because consiracies seem to be counted as fraud.
  • @Erfisflat So you create conspiracy theories? Are they based on your beliefs, or do you write them for fun?

    I don't create, I research. No claim should be dismissed without first examining the evidence.

    Debating would be much less fun without you.

    Agreed, but it's not as fun when people are dismissive and ignore arguments.

  • I don't believe that conspiracy theories, or most of them are true. 

    They are created with little evidence to back the claims.

  • I think that many of the theories could be real, I mean they straight up admitted to MK Ultra.

    I think part of the problem of conspiracy theories debunkers or the act of debunking conspiracy theories is - 1. The association of crazy people to conspiracies. 2 - The ridicule. 3 - The complete disregard that any conspiracy theory could be true. These tactics of "debunking" are just ad-hominems and in my opinion 1 - We shouldn't insult people who are taking the time out of their day to think about the issues. 2 - Let's say that I create something truly unreasonable if someone were to insult me without hearing me out, I would develop an obligation to sticking to my argument. So insulting "conspiracy" theorists will just damage the situation.

  • I believe that conspiracy theories are not true. @fredsnephew , conspiracy theories are not backed with true evidence or a large if any amount of it.
