Conspiracy theories were made up by the CIA so that they could hide behind their own covert activities. Conspiracy theories are red herrings, falsehoods, lies.........

... or you could look for the question where @Stingray takes a dif perspective on the flat-earthers. That may answer your question.

At the end of the day, a conspiracy theory is just that. A theory whereby a group of people claim or prove to themselves that others, usually those in positions of power, have conspired or are conspiring against the masses, for their own gain and their own agendas.

The problem in getting to the root and truth of any conspiracy -so-called- theory is in knowing which ones are real conspiracies and which ones are theories not based on facts. By the Law of Attraction, you must see evidence of that which you assume, so any direction your inquiries take will net you answers that either prove or disprove said theory.

That’s why it amazes me when people get emotional, angry or frustrated over these things. Conspiracy theorists and debunker's alike, both find what they are looking for. Who knows what the truth is.

The funniest thing I saw on this subject was George Bush saying to a group of journalists: “And let us not tolerate any outrageous conspiracy theories.” Considering that he’s allegedly one of the main culprits it’s a perfect defense/cover up maneuver, so must have fueled the conspiracy theorists fire plenty.

I think the best approach is to remain open minded regarding all theories, conspiracy or otherwise. Until such a time that you know intuitively, rationally and sanely what makes sense and ties in with your own common sense.

Conspiracy theories exist because some people have too much time on their hands.

Most conspiracies are the product of post-hoc reasoning and confirmation bias. Post-hoc analysis basically means looking at data, after an event has concluded, for patterns that were not specified in advance. It is sometimes called data dredging by critics, to evoke the sense that the more one looks the more likely something will be found.

Confirmation bias is a tendency for people to confirm their preconceptions or hypotheses, independently of whether or not they are true. People can reinforce their existing attitudes by selectively collecting new evidence, by interpreting evidence in a biased way or by selectively recalling information from memory.

The conspiracy theorist looks at some data (like the fire patterns in the twin towers of 9/11), and reverse-engineers a theory that seems to fit the facts. He then preys on the suspicions of people to help bolster his theory.

9/11 was an inside job because the government does a much worse job on their post-hoc reasonings than the so-called conspiracy theorists. ;-)

(16 Dec '09, 06:48) herzmeister

The video BEHIND THE SMOKE CURTAIN: THE 9/11 PENTAGON ATTACKS says that the evil/diabolical nazis working in the white house did 9/11. The conspiracy theories say that people from other lands did that catastrophe when they did not have the skills. The book WHERE DID THE TOWERS GO? EVIDENCE OF DIRECT ENERGY WEAPONS ON 9/11 by Judy Wood says there was way too much evidence of laser beams on that day to call it the crashes of planes.

(14 Dec '21, 18:47) MagicallyEternal

The man Lear himself said there were no planes used on that day 2 crash into those towers. Those were holographic images up there. There were/are videos that said there were no signals from those planes saying that they were up in the air on that day. That book is highly detailed. It compares the bombing/crashing of other large buildings 2 those towers. Buildings have never crashed from airplane hits. What should have been the crashing of large amounts of steel into the ground never happened.

It's interesting that the words conspiracy theory tend to have a negative connotation. I would like to suggest an alternative viewpoint.

Think about the Law of Attraction.

With this theory, we are saying that as soon as we think a thought to the point where it is habitual for us, our entire Universe conspires to bring about the circumstances and events to manifest it into our physical reality.

Yes, we are saying that our entire Universe conspires...isn't that the ultimate conspiracy theory? :)

I like this. Are you suggesting that the Law of Attraction is not a so-called immutable law? And therefore, it is just another theory that only works if you believe in it?

Well, it's what those who call the Law of Attraction a theory would say. I was just representing their point of view, rather than my own. But that does bring up another issue...who is to say the Law of Attraction is not just our limited, physical interpretation of a much broader Universal Law that we cannot yet comprehend?

(17 Dec '09, 07:18) Stingray

Cool, sounds like the basis of a new question :-)

(17 Dec '09, 08:10) Eddie

Feel free to ask it, Eddie. You inspired it so you must accept full responsibility for it :)

(17 Dec '09, 08:33) Stingray

I'm free Stingray, so know that there's nothing I must do :-) Besides, I already asked a question on immutable laws. Happy to see the LOA working in my life everyday - immutable or not...

(20 Dec '09, 02:44) Eddie

Many of us comprehend constant creation, the law that says evolution cannot be true because energy is constantly spinning/vibrating and pulsating. When energy is constantly creating, as in those quarks, then there cannot be attraction because this word says "THINGS" attract because they are physical when they are not. This existence is being created so fast that even we don't notice how fast, even though we are full of quarks and atoms that are spinning super fast as they create us constantly.

@Stingray

"another issue"

It's been a dozen years since you made that comment. Care to share your thoughts on this "broader Universal law"?

A conspiracy theory is born when a passing caravan attempts to muzzle the barking dog, or when far more energy & resources are devoted to denying the said theory.

Most don't realize that the opinions they have were given to them. Including those which they must reject without examination.

I am commenting on my own post. Still agree with it but have gained much respect towards why an individual becomes interested in conspiracies. I think the most brilliant thing that happened was the joining of the word Conspiracy and the word Theory into one single idea conspiracy theory, implying that all conspiracies are merely theoretical. when in fact, it is the finding of evidence that is contradictory to the narrative that always births a conspiracy theory.

(19 Dec '21, 01:37) The Traveller

Ultimately, the seeker who asks the question needs to seek the answer through the self rather than the reflection (the rest of reality that surrounds the self). In other words, when the answer is given, the only option left is to argue if it is right or wrong. But if the answer is sought through self effort, rather than conversation with others, it is processed at a deeper level, for all questions arise from deep within before being processed and dismissed by the surface intellect.

(19 Dec '21, 01:45) The Traveller

I feel conspiracy theories are permission slips for the layman to make sense of something the normal intellect is unable to process. As you mentioned, conspiracy theories are most of the time "Seeked out" by somebody else

I read that conspiracy theories were created by the CIA to hide themselves and their covert activities.

You mention books often. You didn't mention which book you got your intel from. Do share.

(16 Dec '21, 23:20) ele

Every book I mention I have read, which is over 200 books, none of them fiction. But then that fiction word is an opinion, too. There are so many people that believe that they are physical and then die, that these same people would call these books fiction. Without books all I would have is experience with no words to describe it. When I began to feel energy flow through me in different ways, this is when I dropped the opinion word. This is intel to me. ele: share YOUR intel.

I like you, often vote up answers I don't necessarily agree with for various reasons.

How about birds ?

(01 May, 20:55) ele

ele, in reference to the alfred hitchock thriller, or why so many visit my back yard

(02 May, 08:51) fred

I hope you aren't feeding those CIA drones :))

(02 May, 17:48) ele

As for the movie, there's your proof :)

It would also explain why they were never available for purchase. They would have sold out.

I don't know that much about the birds aren't real theory but I think they said it went back to the 1940's. The movie came out in the 1960's. Further evidence ;)

You said you didn't know the meaning of conspiracy theories. I usually go to a dictionary or other reference book and look the word up.

Have you tried typing your query into a search engine? You'll have a number of dictionaries or other reference books at your fingertips.

Added ~ This question was asked in 2009. If the person who asked this question is anything like me, they probably haven't purchased a new dictionary for many years. Conspiracy Theory is not in my Random House and prob not in any of the other dictionaries I own. This is the digital age :)

I suppose we can also type in "How to manifest" and "what is law of attraction" and other similar questions on IQ into a search engine and we will have a lot of reference books and websites at our fingertips. I guess InwardQuest can be shut down too to save some cost :)
