you need to compile major ones and make a poll.
for me it was probably Kennedy assassination, but more recently about 9 or 10 years ago, chemtrails.

My initial fascination with cars and Tesla Motors lead me to a story about a real man named Nikola Tesla... and JP Morgan, Westinghouse, Edison, Niagra Falls, Wardenclyffe, WW2.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
My head was up my ass through most of my youth....I did not see past my day to day....

...then I saw Wag the Dog (the movie) and it started to make me look at things differently for some reason...
started questioning stuff....

Then 9/11 - it just did not make any sense - I embraced the conspiracy fold!

Actually, I guess I always questioned religion. I thought it was a way to control people by scaring them with nonsense... Then I learned it really was created for that purpose.

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.

It was the OKC bombing that put it over the top for me.

I had some doubts and questions before that but being close to the OKC bombing committee (not by my own choice) is what really started me down the rabbit hole.

I was born this way. I always questioned the official story. But I would say JFK was the first one I researched.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I'd have to say it was when I noticed so many doing data mining on conspiracy sites.

Gotta wonder what that's all about, right?
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
I'm young enough that the official JFK story is the actual conspiracy theory to me. Other than that, I think 9/11, non-existant WMDs, and Gulf War Syndrome really got me to thinking that something else is afoot.

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.

Re: What event turned you into a Conspiracy Theorist?
Conspiracy theorizing is itself the biggest conspiracy of all. Think about it.

bonghit
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1426055


Yes but it is a conspiracy. However, perhaps it is to cover up for the real one. As I see it, films like "Matrix" and the TV series "X-Files" are the cover-up. The truth is not out there, but it is rather in here.

In the 90's the alternative litterature were compartmentalized. And films and TV series were for specially interested. Later and going on, it has flooded all over and become main stream. It is not so strange anymore to believe in UFO's and having alternative lifestyles. It must be a sign that it is a coverup.

I was researching UFO's and that pretty much led me to every other conspiracy concept.
