We are definitely open-minded and we like to dabble into the mysterious but there comes a point were you just gotta tell yourself: “It’s time to stop.”. As fun as it is to speculate about speculations, there comes a point when these speculations become downright ridiculous.
The majority of the conspiracy theorists among us believe they have all the answers. That they have attained some sort of awareness that other’s are blind to see. Sure, there are definitely political, historical and societal issues that too many people are ignorant about. Too many issues that are deemed good or bad when they’re quite the opposite. There are conspiracy theories that, to a certain extent, have some credibility.
That being said, even though there is no definitive proof for some things, I believe that a lot of the time reality is a lot less exciting as conspiracy theories make it out to be. In some cases, conspiracy theories are downright ridiculous and can even be offensive.
Most conspiracy theories preach peace, equality and not blindly believing what you’re told. Ironically, a lot of conspiracy theorists do the exact opposite. They usually have a one track mind as well, in the sense that they do and think whatever society “doesn’t want them to think” (society doesn’t give a shit). When an idea like chem trails becomes popular among those who rock the tinfoil hat, it spreads like wildfire in the community. Anybody that disproves the theory is wrong and indoctrinated and only the “enlightened” they are right. They blindly believe the conspiracy theory, not looking at the alternatives.
On top of that, they hate modern-day, commercial media outlets but they spend an unhealthy amount of time on social media.
I’m not bashing conspiracy theories or theorists, I’m trying to address and issue that sometimes arises surrounding this concept. I believe that you should always think for yourself but you should also be reasonable and respectful.
Just to give an idea of what I’m talking about…
I saw a post on Facebook the other day trying to prove the holocaust never happened. That it was all a big lie by the Zionists. I’m not even going to get into it too much because of its sheer ridiculousness. It’s “theories” like this that are extremely disrespectful, almost justifying anti-Semitism and therefore supporting racist claims. There is definitive proof of the holocaust and there is definitive proof of the atrocities that happened.
The smokey-looking, white trails left behind by planes are called vapor trails or contrails. It only takes a little bit of research to find out that the theory behind chem trails is false. They aren’t mind-control agents, it’s crystilized water. I am not an indoctrinated sheep for saying this, this is science. Human beings have been to the moon. Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley are dead. THE EARTH IS NOT FLAT.
Sometimes it feels that conspiracy theories deliberately theorize the exact opposite of everything we hear or are being thought and that they cover the most controversial subjects to attract attention.
Again, I believe we should always think for ourselves but there are some facts that we simply cannot deny. What we should do is take those facts into account when forming opinions and from there on out we can have healthy, reasonable and respectful discussions. Not nearly everything you’re being told should be believed, no matter by whom you’re being told, but not everything is a lie made up by lizard people.
Next time you read a conspiracy theory, think for yourself and don’t blindly follow its reasoning. Just like you do with all the other media you consume.
Sometimes it’s time to take off that tin foil hat.
