Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
For me, it was a more personal event. Being the target of a 'satanic' cult in the 80's, opened my mind/eyes to how orchestrated and high up it can go, and how many can be involved. They all seemed so normal.

If I'd have had the internet back then, I'd have found the GLP. :)

Re: 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.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
Growing up reading my father's book collection, and being familiar with the various subjects and terminology. I don't believe all of the theories have a plausible basis, but it's comfortable and familiar to me, and has allowed me to entertain different possibilities throughout the years. peace

9/11...I always distrusted the government but this was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.

Also, I was raised Roman Catholic and had a hard time with the doctrine among other things. If I even questioned anything I'd be in big trouble.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
This is a good question.

For me is actually when I was about 21 years old I watched Fahrenheit 9/11.

I had never even thought that something that was described in that movie could have actually happened.

Now I am NOT saying I am a Michael Moore follower by any means, but just happened across that movie by chance. From there I began to research into other things that I always found odd and to my surprise I seemed to just uncover what was just one coverup after another and eventually everything I seen I started to question.

Thus I became a conspiracy theorist.

I took a long trip down the rabbit hole and as you've mentioned one thing led to another, that's how I found GLP, kept coming up in search results so I decided to stick around.

Pearl Harbor I, then reading most of the articles on the site below pretty much confirmed that they do exist to one degree or another. To say they don't is to say lying doesn't exist.

I was always skeptical, of 9/11 in particular. But what really drove me over the edge was the absolute blatant lie of Sandy Hook. Unbelievable.

It wasn't an event that woke me up but a video game, Assassins Creed. The series is filled with symbolism. After completing the game in 2009 I been researching about the templars, the symbols shown then shortly after I found the TPTB. Ive been researching about this stuff frequently

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
Ever since I was a child, I always knew that what we actually see is only a peek at full reality.

My Grandmother never trusted the govt, so I guess it is a bit of family tradition as well.

Also, I was a day trader during dot-com days. Found it fascinating that as soon as the DOW hit 10,000 for the first time, it plunged -- there was clearly a plan for this to happen.

Followed by the hanging chad crap that finished off the tech markets at that time. Obvious, heavy manipulation games.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I knew since I was a kid.

I remember thinking our priest was so retarded. I used to debate the star of Bethlehem with him when I was 11. I was like stars don't just float through the sky.

But in the military is when I was fully slapped out of my slumber. I was involved in some nightmare shit that was totally covered up and lied about. Its all lies. They even coached us on how to lie to the media.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I would say it started in the sixth grade for me. Wrote report talking about the Vatican supporting the Nazi during WW2....I got in trouble for writing a paper i spent a month researching and argued that fact with everyone from my parents to the teachers and principal of the school.

Not one person wanted to hear the truth. i was blown away how every person I came into contact with either thought it was a very bad joke or didn't want to even think about it.

I would have to say that got me thinking......the rest as they say is history....OR IS IT????hf

Simple really, Tv news stations showing entertainment and claiming it as news got me thinking about what were they hiding or not telling the people. And the 2008 election was the event that did it for me.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I was raised to think for myself and not to follow "the crowd."

I've always felt like an outsider looking in...

The election of our President in 2008 was the catalyst that drew me into a more conspiratorial mind frame. I could not understand why the majority would vote for someone they knew nothing about. It was clear his image and history was created by mainstream media.

I am a staunch individualist, and my assumption was that all Americans were of a similar mind frame. Why would we want a representative that places the collective above the individual? It is counter-intuitive to self preservation. "Something must be up" was my general thought at that time.

Then:

I came across a book called The Unseen Hand.

Down the rabbit hole I went.

Born into it

Genetic? Upbringing?

I kind of think I may have been born into it as well, actually. Some people informed me at a very early age that things aren't what they seem.
 Quoting: MagTog


I feel the same way...I really was turned onto some of the theories because of how sick I was and conventional medicine couldn't do a damn thing....had to take matters into my own hands and after I started my own research it lead me to conspiracies and beliefs I only thought I would see in movies.
