I don't really think about them at all, except to have the occasional laugh when I see some loony writing about them.

These are some that could be true, and there are some that if they were true, the world would have(haha! I got it this time!) ended a long time ago.

And I will cut this off at the pass: This thread is not to debate whether certain theories are true or not, it is just what you think about them,(At least that's what I got from it.), so any discussions of material that does not fit this criteria will be removed. You are free to take those discussions to private messages or, if the subject is large enough, a thread of it's own.

Considering the possibility of a conspiracy makes you vigilant.
Considering every possibility makes you paranoid.

I don't really take them to heart. Besides you always get some new theory to back up a wrong one, and so on. Personal if you listened to them all or for that matter believed every one you heard you would go insane. Ah wait maybe that's their purpose? It's to drive the world insane so the evil master minds behind can rule the world eek

There is a lot of conspiracies going around right now about the nuclear situation in Japan.
I can't find the website my friends posted now but the websites he showed seemed fairly reliable and made really good claims. It's concerning but there's nothing we can do so I don't worry too much about it.

Dissidence is right though. It's important to think about it, critically but thinking too deeply can be bad for your health.

Hm, I don't have strong opinions on any particular theories, for true or false. However, I do believe that it is possible or even likely that at least some of them contain a seed of truth. Sure, most of them are probably complete nonsense, but it is too close-minded to say that just because they stretch our comfortable view of reality they must be false. Some of them, though the theories are outlandish, address real gaps in the public version of events--questions that haven't been adequately answered.

i love conspiracy theories! i like to hear all the theory details and i usually come up with a few speculations of my own eyes , whether or not any of them are true is irreverent to me until proven one or another.

Don't fall for it guys!! This thread is just a trap to lure out the people who know the TRUTH about 911!!!! The government is just trying to silence it!!!!!


But seriously, making wild claims, then providing the weakest possible threads of evidence to support them... roll eyes

I don't take them seriously, it really means nothing to me.
But my friend has a friend who is totally into that and she's really obnoxious about it.
When they saw the poster of that new alien movie coming out she was like, "Omg, I believe in aliens, you know aliens are real right?!" And she went on a rant about it. :I So she's pretty noisy about the other stuff too. Kinda want to punch her.

i dont waste my time on them,but it really annoys me when people take them seriously...biggest example is 9/11...noone knows what really happened ,senselessly making up evidences or giving biased explanations is just wrong

you definitely should read "The Illuminatus!" trilogy by RAW and Robert Shea smile
btw the latest conspiracy theory that i heard was about earthquakes in japan. they say it was because of american superweapon. some kind of wunderwaffe that causes earthquakes. why? good question. mb it was an intergalactic order from alpha centauri or i don't know.
oh, and my friend once told me an obscure and hilarious conspiracy theory about the soap. you know why people get old and die? well, people get old and die because of the soap. soap kills! unfortunately, i don't remember why exactly. well, i do remember something, but my english refuses to help me with expanation. sorry.

ok. now about what i think about conspiracy theories. to me conspiracy theories looks like ancient gods. ancient people didn't knew nothing about rains and winds and sun power, - so they made gods. it's easy to believe in god(s) then try to understand what's going on. and this leads to mythical rationalisation: "oh, i see lightning... Zeus is angry". the same with conspiracy theories.
well, just my thoughts smile

I like when they talk about the Moon. How it's hollow and full of aliens...
