Conspiracy Theorists Need to Get a Life

Conspiracy Theorists: Get a Life


Conspiracy theories are merely illogical rot
That says most events are due to some plot
But they never explain just how or why
The conspirators are so powerful and sly

Scholars generally don’t believe such a thing
Because conclusive evidence they don’t bring
Contradictory evidence is explained away
It was planted by the conspirators they say

Outlandishly false such beliefs are seen to be
Cranks or the lunatic fringe only can them see
“But our views are being coved up,” they claim
They’ve convinced others to believe the same

As true theories, these claims don’t go very far
Actually, it is only wild speculation that they are
The mainstream report always works just as well
And these “theories,” nothing useful do they tell

How many people to the conspiracy must adhere
And a whistleblower they never seem to fear
But someone’s conscience would be in fright
And he or she would bring the conspiracy to light

If they should read this, I know what they’ll do
“Look at that. He is in on the conspiracy too.”
Conspiracy theorists are people we should avoid
They are mixed up and likely some are paranoid

Here is the Best of the File Preview for my file on Conspiracy followed by related files at the top of my file...

…Best of the File Preview…
Conspiracy is a Crime...Not a Theory
• Conspiracy: an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot. (dictionary.com)
• Until recently, the controllers have been quite successful at insulting the idea that there might actually be conspiracies going on. “Conspiracy theorists... wackos...paranoid nut cases.” It has been made socially unacceptable to challenge big lies that we are told, because someone might make fun of us. But “conspiracy THEORY” has been turning into “conspiracy ANALYSIS” and finally into conspiracy FACT. When President George Bush Sr. got busted for covertly selling arms to the Contras, his administration was convicted of ...Conspiracy. When the AMA tried to shut down the emergence of Chiropractic, they were found guilty of...Conspiracy. Here are a few more of countless examples of proven conspiracies:
“33 CONSPIRACIES THAT TURNED OUT TO BE TRUE”
• Both of these findings are amplified in the new book Conspiracy Theory in America by political scientist Lance deHaven-Smith, published earlier this year by the University of Texas Press. Professor deHaven-Smith explains why people don’t like being called “conspiracy theorists”: The term was invented and put into wide circulation by the CIA to smear and defame people questioning the JFK assassination! “The CIA’s campaign to popularize the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and make conspiracy belief a target of ridicule and hostility must be credited, unfortunately, with being one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”
• In other words, people who use the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” as an insult are doing so as the result of a well-documented, undisputed, historically-real conspiracy by the CIA to cover up the JFK assassination. That campaign, by the way, was completely illegal, and the CIA officers involved were criminals; the CIA is barred from all domestic activities, yet routinely breaks the law to conduct domestic operations ranging from propaganda to assassinations.
John F Kennedy described it like this. “We are opposed, around the world, by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit and highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed not published, its mistakes are buried not headlined, its’ dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no secret is revealed.”
• Later when trying to conduct an investigation into the Kennedy Assassination, the Director of the FBI, J Edgar Hoover echoed Kennedy’s sentiments when he said. “The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.”
• When searching for the truth about what is happening to this world, there are many red herrings to be found along the way, and a myriad of conspiracy theories to choose from. Many of them seem quite possible, because many of them are partially true, but all are designed to lead nowhere and to keep you distracted. If one steps back a little further however, it becomes apparent that underlying them all, is one very real conspiracy that is both brilliant and frightening in its simplicity and by far the cleverest thing the perpetrators ever did to conceal it was to build a conspiracy culture. A fringe section of society that perpetuated years of rumors and countless other non existent or partially informative conspiracy theories to cloud the truth and breed an air of endless ridicule around the topic. Talk of Aliens, Secret Technologies, Star gates, UFO cover-ups, government conspiracies. All topics that may or may not be true, and always designed to fire the imagination and distract the curious and to provide some sort of sustenance to those who know that something is going on, but simply don’t quite know what it is. And lately we have seen the most perfect, the most plausible possibility of them all.
• “The medical profession (is) a conspiracy to hide its own shortcomings. No doubt the same may be said of all professions. They are all conspiracies against the laity... Until there is a practicable alternative to blind trust in the doctor, the truth about the doctor is so terrible that we dare not face it.” -George Bernard Shaw, "The Doctor's Dilemma," 1906

There have been lots of real and historical conspiracies. Establishments will do anything to keep the control of power, especially on matters like religions and beliefs.

The main thing I learned About conspiracy theory, is that conspiracy theorist believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The Truth of the world is that it is not the Iluminati, or Jewis Banking conspiracy, or Gray Alien theory. The thruth is far more frightening -NOBODY IS IN CONTROL THE WORLD IS RUDDERLESS

In my view, some conspiracies do exist for sure. But I personally like to see real evidence for each and every one before I believe anything/everything I read or hear.

A few conspiracies that never manifested:

-There will be mandatory irradiation of all food by the end of year 2009.

-Ebola is a hoax generated for the purpose of a mandatory vaccination that will selectively kill off (fill in the blank).

-Home gardens will be banned by law if the Food Safety Bill is passed, and the feds will come to our homes and rip our food out of the ground, forcing us to buy GMO.

-Obama will take away our guns (Hasn't happened yet anyway. It seems like some people even gave up on that one by now and are already transferring it to the next potential target).

Where was the evidence for any of those? And yet many people absolutely believed them, and passed them along to others as fact. And then, people they told passed them on to others as fact. And on and on. Often, if someone didn't believe, the person was ostracized. Called names. That's scary. Or at least it should be scary for anyone truly concerned about the future of all of us who share our planet.

I like to resist pressure from others (whomever they may be) to believe something I'm being pressured to believe. I'm not afraid of being called some dumb name. BUT if the evidence really does have merit, then I'll believe it.

The human race - either we learn to logically decipher information from our environment, or we die. Those may be our only choices.

Insights into the Personalities of Conspiracy Theorists

Psychologists find that distrust of authority and low agreeableness are among factors underlying the willingness to believe



Conspiracy theories and scientific theories attempt to explain the world around us. Both apply a filter of logic to the complexity of the universe, thereby transforming randomness into reason. Yet these two theoretical breeds differ in important ways. Scientific theories, by definition, must be falsifiable. That is, they must make reliable predictions about the world; and if those predictions turn out to be incorrect, the theory can be declared false. Conspiracy theories, on the other hand, are tough to disprove. Their proponents can make the theories increasingly elaborate to accommodate new observations; and, ultimately, any information contradicting a conspiracy theory can be answered with, “Well sure, that’s what they want you to think.”

Despite their unfalsifiable nature, conspiracy theories attract significant followings. Not all theorists, it seems, hold their “truths” to the standards of conventional science. And scientists are beginning to understand the types of personalities that buy into more extreme and unlikely theories. Research reveals that conspiracy theorists tend to share a core set of traits, regardless of their conspiracy of choice. Low self-esteem, for example, may characterize both those who believe that Paul McCartney died in 1966 and those who think that Britain’s royal family consists of reptilian aliens.

For a more in-depth account, see “What a Hoax” by Sander van der Linden in the September/October issue of Scientific American MIND.

DA VINCI'S DISCIPLES

The theory:
Some or all of the claims made in Dan Brown’s 2003 novel, The Da Vinci Code, are true.

Studies say:
Even theories billed as fiction can attract a following. A survey conducted in 2005 revealed that 64 percent of respondents who read The Da Vinci Code believed to some extent that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene had spawned a secret bloodline. Willingness to believe in this conspiracy may be related to what researchers call “terror management theory,” which holds that subscribing to such grand dogma can assuage fears related to mortality. Indeed, a 2011 study found an association between belief in Da Vinci-esque conspiracies and anxiety about death.

AMELIA EARHART

The theory:
The disappearance of aviators Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan has bred an array of conspiracy theories ranging from the optimistic (Earhart survived and lived in New Jersey until 1982) to the extraterrestrial (the duo was abducted by aliens).

Studies say:
In a study of 914 adults in London, University of Westminster's Viren Swami andAdrian Furnham of University College London found that 4.5 percent of respondents espoused an alien abduction theory, 5.5 percent believed the two were spies taken down by the Japanese, and only 32 percent endorsed a relatively undramatic account that the plane crashed into the Pacific after running out of gas. Further, researchers found that respondents who believed in Earhart conspiracy theories had lower self-esteem, were more likely to be cynical toward politics, were less agreeable and gave themselves lower ratings of intelligence.

SPAWNING A "TRUTH MOVEMENT"

The theory:
Numerous outlandish narratives exist surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. In many of these stories, the U.S. government knew about the attacks ahead of time; in some, they even helped orchestrate the tragedy.

Studies say:
A second study by Viren Swami and colleagues found that belief in a 9/11 conspiracy was associated with political cynicism and a general tendency toward believing in conspiracies. This latter finding supports what psychologists call a “monological belief system,” in which any and all events can be explained by a web of interconnected conspiracies.

INFECTIOUS IDEAS

The theory:
HIV was created by government-funded scientists as a bioweapon to extinguish certain minority populations.

Studies say:
Conspiracy theories can sometimes arise as a means of making sense of an otherwise senseless tragedy. In this way, theories about the HIV epidemic may help people cope with fear of the virus or the passing of loved ones afflicted by disease-related illness. Though assigning blame may be therapeutic to some people, such attribution has been linked with risky sexual behavior, negative attitudes about medication and lower treatment adherence among those infected with the disease.

DIANA and OSAMA (and 2Pac and ELVIS)

The theory:
Osama bin Laden was dead prior to the U.S. raid on his compound. Also, he is still alive.

Studies say:
A study in 2012 by Michael J. Wood and his colleagues at the University of Kent found that those who believed Bin Laden was dead prior to American intervention are more likely to believe he’s currently alive. Similarly, authors found that those who think Princess Diana faked her death are more likely to believe she was murdered. So, which is it? Dead or alive? Research suggests that such contradictory narratives are linked by an underlying distrust of authority. Among conspiracy theorists, it seems, this suspicion is strong enough to overpower traditional life-death logic.

FAKE SCIENCE

The theory:
Scientists are not to be trusted. The 1969 moon landing was produced on a Hollywood movie set. And global warming is a conspiracy between the government and scientists to achieve world domination.

Studies say:
Polls estimate that anywhere from 6 to 25 percent of the general population believes the moon landing was faked, and 37 percent of Americans suspect global warming is a hoax. Although theories of earth and moon seem worlds apart, they are linked by a general rejection of science wherein distrust of one scientific claim predicts distrust of others. Researchers have found, for example, that people who reject climate science are also more likely to reject evidence that smoking causes cancer. But that’s just, y’know, according to science, and who believes that stuff, anyway?
