    Another thing John left out is that believing in a conspiracy creates a feel good sensation that *you know something others don't* or that you're in into *a secret*. It's another reason why it can be so hard for people who believe in one to "get out". But the biggest challenge is that zero out of ten people like to admit they're wrong or believed in a lie, doubly so because they turn the belief into part of their own self, so to speak, so, to them, attacking the theory is a personal attack.

    Corona virus is the new std of the world... Std board meeting: HIV: welcome sexual monsters to 2019 pass along revival...we start this meeting due to a dilemma. Herpes: interjects! It’s not our fault, kids these days spend all their time on their parents couch. Hell they don’t even kiss each other anymore...last week I had more pass alongside to robots from Japan then actual skin to skin contact. Syphilis: I used to be known as the love I get passed along to more panties stuck on a nose of some creep then actually enjoying my time with two fucking adults....TOGETHER! HIV: settle down please. We are needing something new. Something that people think is a hoax but gamers can catch even in the safety of their home! DOOR SLAMS OPEN: I hear you need an infiltrator? HIV: who the hell are you? Mysterious figure: I’m your fucking angel.. a god send as you will. I’ve got the halo to prove it. I’ll ensure everyone who is dumb will get it and everyone else will fear it till their loneliness breaks them mentally where your skin to skin contact will not be so worried about by time people loose their shit. People will care more that they need to put a uncomfortable mask on and expose themselves to others just to get a the sheer exhaustion of that process they’ll just say we will pull out.... 2021: HIV...welcome sexual monsters to 2021....Corona virus your strategy worked so well that herpes and syphilis had a baby.

    D GREETINGS! TO YALL. The Doctors Said Herpes Virus do not have a medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes is not a special virus; your immune system has the power to fight it back but because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body. But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body within just 14days without damaging any of your cells. Natural herbs kills the bad cells carrying the herpes virus totally! within just 14 days. I am not a medical doctor but i get cured from a herbal doctor who name is Dr abumere with his natural herbal medicine within just 14 days and his medicine is% 100 safe and it has no side effects.

    Sometimes I hear people talk about conspiracy theories and then they say how ridiculous they are. What that is not a very critical way of thinking. Conspiracy do exist, as an example say two people are working for a business and they plot to take over to business that is a conspiracy. So the question is not due conspiracies exist but which ones are true and which ones are false. To me that is a much more rational way to look at it together the facts on whatever conspiracy theory that you might be interested in and determine by the facts if it is true or not. One thing not to do is just assume that all conspiracy theories are fault or all conspiracy theories are true. I think the fact is that some maybe are true and some maybe our false. So try to shift defaults from the true. God bless you.

    Watch time that the truth come out the Earth is not round or flat it is a perfect cube, where do you think they got the idea for the Rubik's cube from, from the Earth well now we finally know the truth. Well I don't really believe that but one thing I would say whether the Earth is round or egg shape or flat or whatever one factory remains true and that is at the Lord Jesus Christ loved you and died for you. No matter what you believe about the shape of the earth you can accept Jesus as your savior. But that just let me add a little extra word here that I do believe that the Earth is round and I believe in modern science. I'm just saying at the most important thing is not to shape of the Earth but if you know Jesus as your savior or not scared God bless you and have a wonderful day.

    In my opinion, a big part of the problem is this: People who are putting about conspiracy theories these days, frequently do so without offering proof (of course) and if you ask them to prove their claims, they turn this around and say: "Well, there's no proof it's not true!" or something that amounts to the same thing, if you analyse it. And they don't seem to realize that proving a negative is an impossible standard. How are we supposed to prove that something is not the case, and how did we get to the point where people demand that we do that? Time was when anyone forwarding a theory had also to offer proof. And not "It's true until someone can prove to me (in a way that I choose to find convincing) that it's not." Just imagine the following scenario: You are accosted by a stranger. They come up to you and say "You owe me 5000$. I lent you that money and you never returned it." But you don't know that person and you know for a fact that you never borrowed anything close to that sum from anybody, so of course you tell them: "That's not true!" But they say: "Prove that, or I will keep on saying that you do owe me." Imagine they could go to court, and sue you for that sum, without having to prove that you borrowed it. And you'd be found guilty because you can't prove that this did not happen, which is simply impossible to do. So of course, the person who claims they lent you the money, have to prove this. If they can't, you don't have to pay anything. Because no one can be expected to prove that something did not happen.

    I think a lot of people underestimate how much bigotry such as antisemitism informs conspiracy theories, but many of the most popular non-wacky ones are based heavily on blaming minorities for things or making innocent things seem malicious. Conspiracy theories, especially intentionally spread dangerous information(such as David Icke's lizard people nonsense) are responsible for the motives of a very large portion of hate crimes.

    Not to sound all edgy, but the reason conspiracy theory grabs people sounds like why religion is so appealing: they help people make sense of a world that doesn't give a shit about your life or the life of anyone famous who you like.

    John, We need you to do multiple episodes of how the painfully mishandled “opioid epidemic”. Ya know, how the first thing they thought to do was take prescription medication away from chronic pain patients who are Dependent on their medication for years, decades, without incident. Theres a huge population of chronic pain patients who are being made to suffer by the same machine that is claiming it’s because they simply cannot risk the chance of us becoming “Addicted”, despite the fact that I have lost everything since they took my medication away. My ability to work, or sleep or eat normally. They ruined my life entirely when they needlessly took my medication away. I just had appendectomy surgery too, Im in so much pain and this is it for me. Someone explain to me how I should interpret this any other way than, they want me to suffer and kill my self.

    The part that is really confusing is why, when these theories are proven incorrect over and over and over again, do people then get swept into the next one.
