Do you believe in conspiracy theories? & Survey

At the end of this article is a test which you can partake of. The link is included at the bottom of this page if you like to go directly to it.
Personality and Conspiracy Theories: What Your Beliefs Say About You

Imagine that everything we think we understand about how the world works is, in fact, an elaborate hoax. Democracy is a sham designed to fool us into believing we are in control. That a small group of unknown, unaccountable elites is actually pulling the strings and pretty much deciding the course of history; everything from the world economy and the conduct of nations to the media and pop culture is under their complete control. Anyone who says otherwise has either been fooled by the conspiracy or is an agent of disinformation.

Does this seem plausible to you? Our latest test is designed to assess your belief in conspiracy theories.

Conspiracy theories are now a firm feature of popular culture - the recent furore around Wiki-leaks provided compelling evidence for this. But the popularity of conspiracy theorising dates back to the shocking assassination of American President J.F.K. in broad daylight and in front of dozens of onlookers on November 22nd, 1963. Immediately, many people claimed that there was more than one gunman, and conspiracy theories arose implicating everyone from the CIA to the communists. More recently, films like Oliver Stone's JFK and T.V. shows like The X-Files brought conspiratorial themes further into the mainstream. The terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001 have become perhaps the most widely debated events of the current generation. Many people doubt the ‘official' story, believing instead that the events were the result of a conspiracy.

FWIW that thing ain't easy. They ask the same questions in both the positive and negative as well as in the middle. :shock:

Here's my results if anyone is keeping score-

Vaccines - Overall, you believe theories about vaccines to be somewhat true.
AIDS - Overall, you believe theories about AIDS to be somewhat untrue.
UFOs - Overall, you believe theories about UFOs to be not particulary true nor untrue.
And DAYUM if I didn't zap out the rest of my results in the process of trying to post them. It's a conspiracy I tell ya!

Mostly I seemed to be "not particularly true nor untrue" or "untrue" for the bulk of the results.

9/11; JFK; Diana; 7/7; UFOs; Vaccines – Overall believes conspiracy theories to be somewhat untrue.

AIDS – stand with one foot on either side of the issue

Climate Change -- Lean towards belief of the phenomena/non-belief of a conspiracy


SOME CLARIFICATIONS:
I think my views on 9/11 are well established -- THERE WAS NO CONSPIRACY OR COVER-UP ON OUR END, that's not to say that certain folks weren't warned about the threat and chose to ignore said warnings.

JFK -- I believe there was more than one shooter but I can likewise see how it is plausible for one shooter to pull off. . . just not with that particular weapon.

UFOs -- I've had sighting encounters and theoretically "more" but I don't believe ET is involved with some kind of secret society or conspiracy to take over the planet, etc. I have to question the whole Lizard People Tv Series drama some have stitched into the drama tied to such things. While some technology may have been shared, I'm betting more on the policy of non-interference.

VACCINES -- There is NO CONSPIRACY when it comes to the more traditional childhood vaccines and I do not believe there is a direct link between certain developmental disorders and said vaccines. I am however, referring to those that were typical in the 50s & 60s. I do question some of the more recent promotion of things like Flu & Pneumonia shots alongside the growing trend towards other prophylactic treatments. I question it due to the expressed corruption in big pharma & general corporate greed coupled with political agendas.

AIDS -- is part of an experiment that got out of hand. While it was deliberately started in rural regions in which the indigenous population were black, it was not intended as some population control agenda. The early experiments, as explained to me by a medical professional from the region in Africa where said tests were being done, was intended to help with species based diseases i.e. the famed Green Monkey association. By way of some "unexpected" interaction between humans and said primates, blood or other bodily fluids were exchanged, mutation happened and HIV was born. So things were incidental but not deliberate, nor has the spread of the disease been manipulated by the CIA or any other such organization, it's just people being people and ignorance being what it is.

CLIMATE CHANGE/EARTH CHANGES -- I believe wholeheartedly these things are legit, based on legit science. BUT, I do believe that certain elements within the social-political side of the problem have been woefully exploitative and profiteeringly inspired when it comes to using celebrity and position and "raising awareness" a.k.a. generating global panic. I KNOW this has resulted in a kick-back reaction by way of the Oil & Chemical industries alongside Coal and other earth rape industries who've hired their own scientific teams to prove the contrasty, which is the point; the "science" is "right" based on who is paying for the research with very little of it being based on a financial & politically neutral set of findings. While such may exist, it has been buried by all the hype spewed by either side.

EARTH CHANGES such as the Mayan prophecies, I likewise believe to be fact and I do believe we are about to witness some drastic and amazing demonstration of such. I'm not saying that the whole Pole Shift B.S. so many people are making an issue is going to bring about cataclysm with the Winter Solstice or that the interpretations of the Mayan warnings are even remotely correct -- they probably aren't. But I do believe we're about to see the beginning of a major seismic change and that it is a cyclic manifestation; something dear old mom goes through about once every 50,000 years or so. . . maybe even more frequently, I cannot say with any certainty when it comes to the time belts, only that the best way to foretell such things, is to look at your past and find the patterns.

The Survey was a very interesting project but like all survey's it didn't leave ample room for refining a person's views with any specificity. It would be interesting to see something along these lines that goes to a much deeper level of qualification and multiple tiers when it comes to niche levels of "definition".

I haven't taken the time yet to do this survey as I've been reading up on some 50 year old murder, but can I just answer the topic's question?

I believe in all conspiracy theories that have plausable and substantial evidence to support it... :o

This is exactly why I am so "in the middle" on several of the questions asked; there are elements behind the CT that I do support in some cases but that's one or two little nuggets in a much larger box of chocolates that I might find far more dissatisfying when it comes to quality & content (Forest Gump wisdom deliberately implied)

I wanna see the results when Winston takes the survey. It very hard to imagine what they'd be.

Not really . . . I just hope they don't send some kind of intervention in the middle of the night to help him recover from said addiction. :twisted:
