Scientific study reveals conspiracy theorists the most sane of all

Post  Guest on Fri 10 Oct 2014, 2:12 pm

If you're a conspiracy theorist, then you're crazy, right? That's been the common belief for years, but recent studies prove that just the opposite is true.

Researchers -- psychologists and social scientists, mostly -- in the U.S. and United Kingdom say data indicate that, contrary to those mainstream media stereotypes, "conspiracy theorists" appear to be more sane than people who accept official versions of controversial and contested events.

The most recent study was published in July 2013 by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent in the UK. Entitled "'What about Building 7?' A Social Psychological Study of Online Discussion of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories," the study compared "conspiracist," or pro-conspiracy theory, and "conventionalist," or anti-conspiracy, comments on news websites.

Where there's conspiracy, there's also a flaw.
A conspiracy theory starts from an untruth, there has to be doubt.
Otherwise, there would be no questions, or questions would be answered satisfactory.
IMO, this is why people start to question facts.
They are not loons, they are well switched on.
IMO only.

Well, I have a theory that all those bunches of flowers at an alleged accident site are part of a Florist or perhaps even Interflora conspiracy.

They simply lay down a few bunches at a suitable place and set up a stall nearby.
Overnight they even retrieve some bunches for re-sale...

I am entirely sane. Very Happy


Will read the article, expecially since they choose building 7. That was what brought up a big red flag for me. i'd only heard about building seven years later, despite reading all about 9/11 in the press.

Building 7 - 9/11
The murder of officer Tippett - Kennedy
The silence about Smith - McCann

All three events that don't fit in with the alleged main event.

Marilyn Monroe

Post  Freedom on Tue 28 Oct 2014, 11:50 am

A new programme about the still debated death of Marilyn Monroe.

http://www.channel5.com/shows/conspiracy-the-missing-evidence/episodes/episode-1-679

A clanger in the first part refers to her attending JFK's 50th birthday celebrations - he died when he was 46!

Have you noticed, that she was announced as the "late" Marilyn Monroe?
If memory serves me she died shortly afterwards.

That was a joke because of her unfortunate reputation of being late for everything.

The president's birthday was in May; she died in August.

So she was late and then she was the late ... and a year later he was late too.
Puzzling affair, I must say.

Thoughts on Conspiracy Theories

Post  Guest on Fri 26 Dec 2014, 6:12 pm

It seems to me (if you read the internet anyway) that the new religion of the day is conspiracy theories. Seriously why don't you believe that things happen as you are told? Every man is a paedofile. Every policeman is corrupt. Every government official makes everything up to hide their dodgy dealings from the stupid people. All these things happen and none of its real. All to control us? Really!

What a way to live.

I worked for the government for many many years. None of this stuff goes on. Do u really think that every civil servant is gonna just turn a blind eye and say nothing.  I'm a normal person with normal morals. I don't think so!!

Back in the day conspiracy theorists were loons. David Icke their god, and derided. What has changed for it to be normal?! The internet has opened my eyes to how many nut jobs around.

So if I understand you correctly. you are saying we should just accept that everything we are told by officialdom is the way it happened. OK let`s begin with Hillsborough. Did that happen the way we were told?
If we are to accept that what TPTB tell us happens is gospel then we may as all well go home and read the MSM, listen to the BBC and behave like good little citizens.
And I object most strongly to being called a nut job because you believe everything you are told by the government that pays your wages.
I did not intend to finish the Christmas good spirits on here by having to defend my right to question anything I don`t accept. If you chose that path that is up to you but please respect others who prefer to look deeper.
Tell me why Dunblane is under 100 year lock down. Explain Sandy Hook.

......the laws of physics suspended on 9/11 when buildings came down at freefall speed. Iirc 9m per second squared. 

It's more difficult to hide contrived events now, but Operation  Gladius is a fact and started soon after WWII. 
The bombing of the Bologna station in the eighties was done by the then government, 80 + people died. It's on record. False flag ops are old as the hills. 

However, in the McCann case I used to believe there was a concerted effort to cover up full stop. I no longer believe this - it all started to unravel in September 07 which became clear by going through the day by day events after they were arguidos. 
The 'conspiracy' (pretty ham-fisted one) to go along with the McCann story -yes absolutely. 
After Sept. 07  the MSM really took over the goose that laid the golden eggs - why give it up that early? Lots of mileage in the story still as we have seen. 

First some mediocre people with a cunning plan - then: meddling vain and ambitious Blair... Then: something in it for pretty well everyone -  the McCann case is much more than a missing child, it's a modern parable about greed imo.

I'll reply tomorrow if I can be bothered.

And as for Sandy hook! One of the sickest conspiracy sever started.

I don't work for the government now they do not pay my wages. I said I used to. So you accuse civil servants of all being corrupt?

Oh and no you didn't understand my post correctly.

TPTB = the powers that be.

It's just that what you said is a bit surprising. If we all believed the official stories about everything (no matter how ridiculous they are) we wouldn't be here now on this forum!

Post  Guest on Fri 26 Dec 2014, 10:26 pm

Not everybody is out to get you. Not everything you hear is a lie. Not every incident has a hidden agenda. some things are just as they seem. Sometimes you are not told everything for a reason. Because there is no need for you to know. So you make things up to make sense of it. Too many wild imaginations. It's not always sinister you know.

I've decided tonight I can't be arsed. Freedom can u delete my whole profile and comments please. Thanks very much. Please people don't take life so seriously. It doesn't mean u are stupid just because you don't want to live your life questioning every bloody thing you are told. Life is too short to be stuck on this shit. Go and enjoy it before you are gone! And remember from someone who worked at the government in a job that knows everything that goes on. Yes the bloody secretary's know everything trust me. I never once saw a conspiracy in all my days there.

Tony Blair (c you next tuesday) and back scratching yes. He got found out tho and it came out. As normal people ain't corrupt. And don't sit back and keep quiet.

I can delete your comments but not your whole account; only Candyfloss can do that.

Please will you take time out and see if that's still what you want to do.

There's no reason for you to leave as far as I'm concerned.

We can't agree on everything.
