What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I've been trying to remember what event it was for me...

While I'm trying to remember, I'd be interested in reading your stories. Do you remember what event it was that turned you CT? The more details, the better.

What details did you pick up on that informed you it was a hoax? I haven't looked in to it that much, so I was hoping you would remember what it was that clued you in.

Friends of my mom's were dope growing hippies. Dude (who was actually very smart, had advanced degrees in both law and economics) gave me one of David I.... books and my mom let me read it because she thought it was about Princess Di. I was 15 or so at the time and many books were baned in our house due to religion.

While not totally to my tastes, it gave me a little insight and the interest to go further.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I'd always been interested in the UFO/alien phenomena and other wacky stuff.

I guess if I had to pick an event it would be the JFK assassination. More specifically when I watched the JFK movie by Oliver Stone.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37626560


I have heard about the radiation. I know that some astronauts that got close to it said they were seeing shooting stars, even when they closed their eyes (from the radiation/rays/whatevs), and that the apollo dudes didn't describe experiencing having that kind of experience. However, I have talked to a guy that works at JPL, and he said that the radiation levels were not so extreme that it would kill someone. I don't know if that is true or false -- the guy is a nutjob in so many other ways, I just don't know...

Anyhow...no one wants to get banned...

I grew up in a super religious home as well. Looking back now...religion (truth which opposed temporal, "official" truth) was definitely the beginning of it.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
american revolution, jfk, moon hoax, titanic


when i got to highschool and had teachers that would teach real history i learned everything i learned in grade school was a total f ing lie, that got me started,


and now well hell they just make real life movies for us in real time like shady hook, boston, 9/11, london tube bombings, OK bombs, aurora co


but if one goes back and reads many books from different countries dealing with same subject matter and many differnt subject matter, one finds that history is almost complete BS and a total fabrication of the truth.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
The dream of space was suppressed because of fear.

The _method_ of suppressing the dream was a meme
that first surfaced in my area in the late 70's early 80's
"Space!? We have enough problems here on Earth."

It was useful to the average six-pack or grocery-shopper when they found themselves in a conversation above their education level.

Also, once on the defensive, most space fanatics
were hard pressed to explain the safety issues,
how to effect a rescue, and how unpleasant life in zero G is.

I've been looking into this since the 70's
when I first became a conspiracy theorist
over the shuttle redesign in committee
where they divided it into two parts so it could be
in Florida AND Louisiana.

(the original was twice as big and all the fuel was in the wings, no external tank to shed a piece of ice and cause catastrophic loss of life later (but politicians know best don't they))

So I've been sniffing around for the hidden why of it all for many a year, and here is my theory.




The dream was suppressed because of fear.
In my opinion anyway.
I'm still nervous about speculating openly about this.
It has no context.
It's so far outside the normal perspective on society that it almost seems to lack motivation (to most who hear it.) I think the reason our owners fear the dream of space, is the same fear they have of faith movements.

They fear that A fundamentalist Cult goes to orbit, nukes the world, then returns to repopulate. Because this is what they would do if the roles were reversed.

This is the hidden fear that, I feel, motivates the suppression of the space dream. So much that it shouldn't even be possible for someone to conceive of such a thing.

AND THAT is the pop culture world we live in this day.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
My mother's take on the JFK assassination, and her sister's insistence that the moon landing was a hoax.

It bothered mom that the finding of the Warren Commission would not be revealed for 75 years. No one from the time left alive to dispute. My aunt was adamant that the 'moon' depicted in the media was filmed in the Nevada desert.

In the 90's I started learning about all the nasty things they do / or add to our food without telling us and how the FDA allowed it. I started researching, which led to conspiracies of course! ... And that opened a whole new world to me.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I was really skeptical since I remember myself. Documentaries helped too. You see if you are an only child, have free time and you can choose either playing your toys again or watching a really cool documentary about aliens, then guess what I choose? tounge

And after watching the documentary, I couldn't sleep the same night, I was afraid the aliens are gonna do anal probe to me or something...lol My imagination always goes crazy at night.

I was 8, when 9/11 happened so can't say I wasn't affected by that.
