    A conspiracy theory is just a theory that a conspiracy took, or is taking place. I don't see why that has such a negative connotation. It is as though most people thought there has never been a conspiracy ever in any government.

    Oh, except for some reason we just call that, "History," now and deny it's relevance to this conversation.



    Yes, I believe in the existence of conspiracies. You'd have to have your head stuck in the dirt not to understand that they are a part of world history, and even American history to an extent. Now whether i think the government is spying on me through my toaster with the help of alien mind control technology stolen from Switzerland bank CEOs? Ehhhhh not so much.

    Exactly. I don't know what the point of slapping the "conspiracy theory" label on anything is. An idea either makes sense or it doesn't.

    This is a part of my reply from the thread "The Mystic Side of the ISTP:"

    "I used to be into this Peak-Oil theory stuff that often involved conspiracies and other things. There was this one guy, Mike Ruppert, who was a former LAPD cop that I thought was pretty interesting regarding Peak Oil and various "conspiracies." He would say that the three biggest business sectors/industries on Earth are: 1) Oil and Gas, 2) Weapons, Explosives and Firearms and 3) Drugs/Narcotics. He said that these three industries often intersect with one another and are heavily involved in what goes on in the world today. One of his famous sayings was, "Until You Change the Way Money Works, You Change Nothing." He wrote a book in 2004 called Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil. He also had a couple of pretty good videos on YouTube. One was "The Truth and Lies of 9/11" and another one was on the CIA and their involvement with the drugs/narcotics industry in terms of funneling cocaine into the streets of south central Los Angeles. This second video is called, I think, "Mike Ruppert CIA Drugs" or something like that."

    Nowadays, I just simply get information overload from trying to read about all these kinds of things. It's just too complicated. I just tune out and don't really trust any particular viewpoint or whatever. But if there was one thing I learned about this conspiracy theory stuff, it's that you should not just blindly trust and accept what the mainstream media, the government or so-called "leaders" tell you. They lie to your face in order for you to have trust, confidence, faith, belief and hope in everything (like the economy, the system, society and such).

    Maybe one of the reasons why there are conspiracy theories is because of how there are things that are deemed classified, secret and forbidden from you knowing about, especially by the defense and intelligence industries. Cold War shit. It's like how some people think they reverse engineer alien technology at Area 51 when instead what goes on there are humans/people making military defense and intelligence projects. This all leads to cover stories, hidden agendas and then an escalating upward spiral into out-of-control paranoia about everything. Not for me, that's for sure.

    Exactly. An ISTP should be looking at any theory for the facts, evidence, and logic supporting it (or not) rather than the label people are prone to slapping on them. That should be a strength of ours. I'm somewhat disappointed by the responses in these threads. It's okay to say, "i haven't seen a conspiracy theory that has made sense to me," but bashing all theories within a labeled trouble is very non-Ti.

    I don't care about them, but they can be fun to read sometimes.

    Here is a funny video that I found on Youtube:



    This is a parody of the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, whom ABC News called, "The Most Paranoid Man in America."

    conspiracy that aliens are real, yes. the universe is to big to not have other life forms
    conspiracy that Sasquatch is real, maybe. the majority of America is unclaimed wilderness
    conspiracy that US citizens have been conditioned over time to become mindless sheep, well yes i do. because youd have to be plain stupid to think your government needs to protect you from your self

    there only conspiracy theories because the majority of people refuse to beleave it.
    im not saying i beleave in all conspiracies but sometimes you gotta think with logic over whats expected.
    in fact saying that all conspiracies are fake and for crazy people is just plain ignorant.
