    yes,and also the Nasa having "misplaced" the video was fuel to the fire.

    But it seems a lot of people believe this,so it isn't so ridiculous!(otherwise we could include religions as well. :p )

    There is a difference in conspiracy theories of the whacky kind and those which have ulterior motives, like religious fundamentalism or social anarchy. The latter kind is a conspiracy, but not in the theory, but in the ultimate motives.

    you dont have to be smart to be a student and somehow i doubt that little bunch will be the pride of society some day
    also, Icke may be just pretending to believe in all that crap like L. Ron Hubbard and wants to get a little bit more money


    the first time i got to now more about conspiracy theories was in high school in 3rd grade when my "brilliant" sociology teacher on the 2nd class recommended to everyone her favorite book Committee of 300 by John Coleman
    after reading just a few pages of it i thought to myself "You have got to be ****ing kidding me!"

    if you want to get a good laugh, just read this masterpiece, you wont be disappointing
    me and my two friends were so inspired by the book that we (out of a yoke) sprayed on a wall in front of her flat "The Aquarius Conspiracy" (except not in English) which is a name Dr. Coleman (he isnt actually a doctor,he just calls himself like that in his book) gave to one of his minor parts in the book, i dont exactly remember what anymore

    In a country called India, in a place called Mumbai some terrorists shot a bunch of people and took over a couple hotels. Killed a number of Jews too.
    Happened on 26th of November ( i guess).

    I suppose no one in the USA really believes there is a world outside of it :-D (Being sarcastic, don't be offended).

    The most ridiculous conspiracy theory I've ever heard is that 19 Arab hijackers managed to penetrate the most guarded air space on the planet 3 separate times on the same day, flying air craft they didn't know how to fly in an incredible manner into the Pentagon and WTC towers 1 and 2, making them collapse at free fall speeds shortly thereafter.

    I'm not saying any of the aformentioned conspiracies are real, but sometimes some conspiracies are real.

    Conspiracies can be real. Lets look at why:

    Lets look at the definition of a conspiracy:

    conspiracies
    - Is an agreement to carry out together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.
    - An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.



    If this is the case, then the 9/11 hijackers were part of a conspiracy to take down the twin towers.

    Germany's surprise invasion of Russia in WWII was as well.
    Germany's extermination of the jews was as well, since the death camps were kept hidden from most of german populance and the international community.

    Bernie Madoff was involved in a conspiracy to create a financial empire, and scammed people of +65 billion dollars.

    Things in the legal framework of a governments laws will define what is illegal, thus laws define what is technically a conspiracy. Large corporations and industries have a long history put yes men in key locations in government to further their agendas and pass favorable bills, and spend large sums of money on lobby groups. This is all real. And while its not illegal and thus not legally a conspiracy by law, is still something kept out of the limelight and something that has negative reprecussions for the general public.

    i guess the general understanding here on conspiracy was "implausible alternative explanation".

    with news being industrialised and fed in 10 sec titbits, anything that hits the "mainstream" news first and has a governmental source behind it becomes a defacto legitimate explanation regardless of the quality of explanation. most other altervative explanations are pigeon holed into "conspiracies".

    The most ridiculous conspiracy is by some TW members (and respectable ones at that) to prove that DrFedace is not a doctor from StandFord MeD SCHool.

    The Philadelphia Experiment

    They've actually made a movie out of it (don't recall what's the name... probably... "The Philadelphia Experiment ").

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philadelphia_Experiment

    The ship dissapeared into "another dimension" and came back. Only with its crew embedded in the metal of the ship.

    yes hehe :mrgreen: and if you read bellow it says how so called "belgian" inventions as the Smurfs are actually promoting communism.
    Papa Smurf is a Communist and S.M.U.R.F=Socialist Men Under a Red Father
    Karl Marx and Papa Smurf=Separated at Birth??
    Brainy Smurf bears a striking resemblance to one of Lenin's high ranking officials, Trotsky.
    The Smurfs biggest enemy was Gargamel, the representation of Capitalism in Smurf Land.

    Actually, there is 0/10000000000000 possibility that the towers could collapse like that. They were designed to withstand multiple airline crashes. When there is a structural failure, mass finds the pass of least resistance. The path of least resistance will never been dozens and dozens of floors of intact industrial steel and concrete.

    Let us also not forget that molten steel was reported at the bases of all three collapsed structures. Pools of it. It was reported "flowing like lava" by firefighters. "Like a foundry," they said. From what? The kerosene in the airliners, most of which we saw explode on impact?

    9/11 was a sociological study just to see how stupid the average American really is. The conclusions of the study are a bit disturbing to say the least.
