    I feel much the same. I used to dismiss them all, until I started learning about some that have been proven true. Now I have a fondness for digging through crazy ideas.

    Most conspiracy theories start because of some doubt.

    I started looking into them for exactly the reason you mentioned. It's a great way to open your mind to asking questions. As long as you don't close it for them.

    That's a good way to look at it. A lot of interesting things have been labeled like that to discredit them, only to turn out to be true.

    Taking any story and running with it before finding out what's true is typically bad.
