Turd, may I suggest this forum be renamed?

"Conspiracy Theory" has a negative connotation and the majority of the herd hears those words and shuts down.  They close their ears, so to speak and refuse to give credit where credit is due for fear of being labeled a "nut job" or "whacko".  Just because the mainstream media does not properly give full research into certain news events does not mean that their official report is anything more valid than a properly documented and researched one.

Take for example the Commission report on Sept 11, which failed to study MANY MANY MANY aspects of what occurred on September 11 and how they occurred.  Nobody with their head screwed on straight would say the US Govt's official report of that day is even close to being properly researched, footnoted, or even fully studied.  It isn't a conspiracy theory to say this simple fact.  It is a fact that they did not follow industry standard practices in compiling that document.

Silver manipulation is a "conspiracy theory" in the mainstream but you and I both know that the events that have unfolded and how they were unfolded in the metals market are not conspiracy.  Tyler at ZH likes to point out the six sigma events and how these patterns and dramatic deviations are statistically impossible without coordinated action and manipulation.

Please rename the forum or you risk dooming this forum to be obscure and rarely trafficked.

What is a Conspiracy Theory?

A conspiracy theory is a an idea that two or more people have conspired to commit a crime which has not yet been proven with  facts which has been derived from the currently available evidence.  I am not interested in theories, but the facts only please. So, I agree with this poster, we try to present the "Conspiracy Facts" only please. Truths that are proven to be facts by virtue of overwhelming evidence to support those facts.

I agree

the term conspiracy theory is percieved in a negative way by many people. The bilderburg meetings are a good example, even a few years ago anyone who talked about a meeting by the wealthy elite to plan world events would have been laughed at. I get laughed at sometimes just trying to describe the federal reserve to my family. To many the Fed represents a conspiracy of the wealthy to steal the earnings of the middle and lower class, but to many here that would be considered common knowledge.

Its all perspective, I also prefer to focus on facts, but to define something as conspiracy may require that some facts are still unknown. I mean, once it is public information is it still conspiracy? I still like the term speculation but I'm not sure the best way to apply it here.

Maybe this section should just be merged with current events. wtfdik

I'll take the other side

While I agree with Capt Benny, Good or bad, everyone knows what they are getting into with the title Conspiracy theories. Besides I have already been labeled "Conspiracy Nut" by most of my sheeple friends.

lol, very true, but the distinction needs to be made precisely because of the unwarranted negative connotation associated with this concept.  smiley

yes I concur, and it's unfortunate but true, certain words and subjects just shut people down before you can reach them. like 9/11 for example

How did they score in the Sheeple Quiz?  1-5's are "help-able" 6's and above are not.
