    That's a stereotypical viewpoint at best. I'm not searching for reasons or conspiracies to blame any failures I've had on. I like seeing and hearing facts that I didn't know before and the videos I have posted so far seem to be very accurate. Real footage and documents from the CIA, the military, Google, DARPA and numerous other extremely powerful entities that otherwise wouldn't be seen by me. I know you don't watch videos but just pick a short one on page one and suffer through it for me. I'd do it for you.

    Well, it's a typical one among rationalists. Among conspiracy theorists and similarly situated people lacking in serious analytical skill sets it's the old hoo-hah.

    Then you're either an exception from the rule or...no, that's about it.

    Anyone can cherry pick facts to make what appears to be a compelling case for nearly anything. That's why so many books manage to be sold, videos watched, etc.

    I went through the world is flat and everyone is keeping it from us thread a while back. Dabbled with the we didn't land on the moon crowd narrative. I've read the 911 was an inside job nonsense...it's a bit like most sports these days for me, just not that entertaining any longer and I'm pickier with how I waste time, largely.

    I'm not posting fantastical conspiracies like flat earth or 9-11, which I touched on in the OP and to lump me in with loons "lacking analytical skills" is asinine. But hey thanks for wasting your time in this thread.

    Yet you find football entertaining.

    Yeah, but I didn't do that. You're free to, if you like. I've spoken generally about the problem. Some conspiracies are and have been real. Experiments on soldiers by our own government, by way of example...but most of what falls under the umbrella is and always has been sensational and speculative nonsense.

    9/11 is one where I draw the line. If even half of what is speculated were true, lots of people (lots MORE people) would have been offed for exposing "truth." Sorry, not buying it.

    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    That's your single opinion against the hundreds of opinions taken in that survey which matches most other surveys: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinio...iracy_theories

    In your world your opinion is all that counts I see.

    It's only a conspiracy if it is not the majority belief. The 'official' 911 story is now the conspiracy:
