Why do people believe in conspiracy theories?
First of all, it’s not just a few loners on the internet - prior research indicates that half the American public believes in at least one conspiracy theory in any given year.
Political scientists Eric Oliver and Thomas Wood, who studied the subject, defined a conspiracy theory as “an explanation that makes reference to hidden, malevolent forces seeking to advance some nefarious aim.” A conspiracy theory does not have to be untrue, but it is sure to contradict the usual, popularly-accepted version of the same event or phenomena.
Once a conspiracy theory becomes the accepted explanation, it stops being a conspiracy theory and becomes a fact of history. This certainly is one reason people continue to believe - they hope their views will eventually be proven right.
I, myself, happen to believe in a conspiracy theory or two (see my Chemtrail page). In fact, I've dedicated more than one episode of ParaReality Radio on the subject of conspiracy theories. Since it seems that our President is, at least, somewhat a believer in them, I thought this would be the perfect time to do a countdown of my own person top 20 conspiracy theories of all-time.
