Contradictions and Conspiracy Theorists
« on: June 03, 2014, 10:06:50 AM »

I found this rather interesting, a study by a University of Kent (UK) professor, who discovered that conspiracy theorists aren't put off by contradictory theories; heck, they even embrace them as part of their conspiracy worldview: http://www.livescience.com/18171-contradicting-conspiracy-theories-mistrust.html

"Believing that Osama bin Laden is still alive is apparently no obstacle to believing that he has been dead for years," the study authors wrote. As one example.

Now ... where did I put that banjo case? Maybe I left it in Saipan? And stop reading this, I know you're all out to get me.

LTM, who tries not to let them get him,

Yes, it is self-evident that whoever opposes them is part of the conspiracy to silence them!   ::)
