Why conspiracy theories and the Illuminati are not real

Updated on February 20, 2012

Conspiracy theories are not true

Conspiracy theorists are the people who spread fear and rumours that there is some kind of negative or evil force behind an incident or even, in the case of the Illuminati conspiracy theorists, running the world.

But it's vitally important to remember conspiracy theories are just that - theories. There is no evidence to prove that they are true. A theory, according to the dictionary, is ''a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world; an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances''.

So, for example, a theory that all fish will turn green in the future is a theory. You and me could come up with a theory that the sky is purple. We could put together a scientific paper explaining why we believe it is reall. But that doesn't make it true. Any scientist will tell you that nothing can be proved, things can only ever be disproved. Likewise, suggestions by Richard Dawkins that there's no such thing as god is also only a throy - he's not right. He just has an idea about how he thinks the world works.

This realisation is the fundamental problem the masses have when they read a conspiracy theory and get all excited. They shriek, ''the world's going to end in 2012''. No, it's not. ''Agghhh, the Illuminati are controlling what milk I use on my cereal.'' No, they're not, you are.

This brings me on to the characters of conspiracy theorists.

They are control freaks. Why? Because the world is chaotic, random and for the most part, there's there's no justice and reason why something happened. 911 was a tragedy. Nobody will ever know exactly what happened. It just did. The Tsunami killed thousands of people in Haiti. It just did. There's no reason why. That's just the world.

But conspiracy theories fail to accept that sometimes things just happen because that's the nature of the world we live in. They have to have an explanation ands answers to an event when sometimes there is none. No meaning. But conspiracy theorists categorize everything into the conspiracy theory box which makes it easier for them to grasp.

Conspiracy theorists are deeply suspicious people who do not trust life. They're distrustful of the the world and people. ''All politicians are corrupt'', ''all business owners are greedy'', ''people are out to get what they can for themselves'', are the kind of messages they're used to. They don't understand that the world is full of kind-hearted and warm people with good intentions and that even some of these are those earning millions of dollars a year. But a conspiracy theory justifies their beliefs that people in power of bad by holding a conspiracy theory idea.

Conspiracy theorists are the type of people who constantly blame others for what's happened. This means that all the bad things that have happened to them in life they can blame on this shadowy force that they believe is running the world. They can pass over the responsibility for their life to those that they think are controlling the world. Whereas conspiracy theorists will say that they 're empowering themselves with knowledge, this is actually giving somebody else power over their lives.

Conspiracy theorists are arrogant. They think that they're the only ones who have realised ''what's really going on'' and that everybody is just a sheep. But there are some very happy clued up sheep who are enjoying life much more than conspiracy theorists and have more money and friends to boot. Conspiracy theorists, on the other hand, tend to be isolated and poor academic types who spend much of their time online. They are so arrogant in the belief of their own super-intelligence that they don't respect or appreciate the intelligence of the common man, nor, as is about to be explained, do they understand the power of life, and the world.

Conspiracy theorists have a sheltered and small-minded view of the world. They do not comprehend how vast and diverse and distant governments and countries around the world are. They do not know how complicated the day-to-running of a society's courts, hospitals, police and other services are. Often the running of these services can come down to an individual's decision.

How a meeting of a secret society might look
How a meeting of a secret society might look

Yes, maybe their are some secret organisations like the Freemasons, the Illuminati or if you're in The Simpsons, the stone-cutters. But really, who cares about a bunch a rich, bloated, middle aged men in a boy's club with silly secret handshakes talking about their plans for world domination. And undoubtedly, there are corrupt businessman and politicians who collude to help each other out and cover things up. This is nothing new and it certainly isn't a conspiracy. These kind of abuses of power have been ongoing for hundreds if not thousands of years. And they are usually isolated and not interlinked.

The world, nature, the great spirit, god, whoever, is a more powerful place than any of these and their plans would always fail, be exposed, or superseded by some other organisation .

So there you have it. Hopefully people who've read this will treat the next conspiracy theory when it comes along with a bit more scepticism.

      Just a quick post. In Latin the word Govern means to control or drive and ment means mind. Government=Mind Control. I agree with the realist vs. conspiracy theorist. I consider myself to be well informed and a critical thinker. I love people and believe that most people are good at heart. I also know that there are tons of concepts to understand to really start to get the picture. Everything from factual history to central banking to medicine are all deceptions upon the mind. We are lied to and facts covered up or made overly complex intentionally so that we will not persue the reality of these things. Why would we not be taught about the tribe of Dan, FIAT currency, Doctor Royal Raymond Rife, etc... in our schools at any level? The powers that be do not want us to know. This is the nature of conspiracies but many are not theories but are fact. Please if you question what I am saying lookup any of the specifics I mention here and it is just the tip of the iceberg of things to know. What we need to do is awaken and unite and stop letting ourselves be divided and manipulated into believing that we are separate. We are one consciousness meaning that to harm another is to harm oneself. Let us be tolerant of different ideas and at least listen to them entirely before dismissal.

      I have put in almost 15 years and countless hours of research to form my own opinions about the content found all over the web, history, books, documentaries, lectures and do believe there is a seriousness about the information which we can choose to ignore or we can try to unite and form the inclusive fair and honest world most of us desire and deserve.

      Always do what you've always done and you will always be where have always been.

      GOOD WILL TO ALL!!!

      Bathhouse Barry Soetoro(BHO) was born a 100% British Subject in Kenya before his adoption in Indonesia. The Hawaiian Birth Certificate is an obvious forgery and the Connecticut Social Security number was stolen from a dead man who had vacationed in Hawaii. Worst of all this usurper is the man of lawlessness predicted in the Bible. Jesuit Pope Francis is the False Prophet. Get saved before The Rapture! The ONLY written truth is found in the Bible as all newspapers, magazines, book publishers and the entire mainstream-media(including FoxNews & npr) are owned and operated by an evil-cabal of global-elite commonly referred to as "The Illuminati". They have been using the Freemasons, Skull&Bones, Oxford University, the Jesuits, Bilderbergs, Bohemian Grove, etc for MANY decades to establish their Luciferian NWO. Everything you think you know is a lie. I am sorry I have to break it to you but Oswald was a patsy, the Titanic was really the RMS Olympic and Jack-the-Ripper was a collection of Freemasons working on behalf of Queen Victoria covering up the adventures of her flamboyant grandson " Prince Eddy". What you see on TV is nothing but fairy tales and pablum lulling us asleep until the next false-flag event which I expect soon. The Protocols of the Learned Elders of the Priory of Sion and General Albert Pike's letter advocating three world wars are also the truth. Seriously consider the words of Jesus "You must be born again"! He provides our one and only means of escape from the coming wrath and judgment of God while Antichrist Obama rules the whole world. Legally Obama couldn't run for Dogcatcher. He violated OUR Constitution simply by running illegally for President. Howard Dean & Nancy Pelosi enabled him. Even the Republican congressmen have helped keep this usurper illegally in our Whitehouse. Jesus is our ONLY hope for salvation. Soon this Antichrist BHO will be inhabited by the devil(Allah) himself. Pope Francis is a wolf in sheep's clothing. He was born 100% Italian to 100% Italian parents in Argentina. It is widely believed he was a child-trafficker who over saw hundreds of orphaned children sent to Canada where they were abused, killed and buried in mass-graves or used to make pink-slime processed through Cargill in Minnesota. This man is not only a Jesuit he is a Luciferian member of the Ninth Circle. Francis is clearly the False Prophet for Antichrist Obama. Only a natural-born citizen can legally run for President. That means someone born on U.S. soil after 1787 to parents who were BOTH Americans at the time. Hence Cruz, Rubio, Santorum, Jindahl, McCain & Bathhouse Barry are or were illegal candidates. Bernie Sanders had dual-citizenship with Israel so he is an illegal candidate as well. Our last best hope to restore America and undo what this usurper has done is birther Trump with Ben Carson as VP. It is just a crying shame the Bush-family and the Clintons will find a way to prevent Trump's election.

      governments are defiantly corrupt but I don't think the "world powers" could get along in a secret society and actually control the world!! I think they are just corrupt on their own and get caught up in scandals and schemes to get rich.

      Author starts with the wrong definition of "theory". He used the scientific definition which he wrote himself in his essay — "a well-substantiated explanation ..." which of course is completely contrary to the point of his essay. This guy is so set in his obsessive thinking and unable to be objective that he doesn't even care about understanding the definition of "theory" — a true sign that he is what he is accusing "conspiracy theorists" of being. It's basicaly cognitive dissonance. Further his "proofs" are all of broad generalizations which are self-evidently illogical. One cannot rationally say "all theories are blah" or "all conspiracy theorists are blah". He can't handle the possibilities and thus he can't handle the truth.

      You are almost as arrogant in your opinion as conspiracy theorists are in theirs. Even the head of the FBI for twenty years can confirm there were covert military operations to take children out of orphanages and put them on privates jets and send them to the white house for sex parties. Is that a conspiracy? The media has been forming the ideas and beliefs of nations for years based on the ideas of Sigmond Frued and his nephew Charles Bernaise. That 'man is an unpredictable violent creature that must be controlled.' There is evil in the world and organised crime is highly organised. By looking at all the information that is available and also where it comes from and asking questions undoubtedly uncovers flaws and holes in the information that mainstream is fed. Something that you obviously haven't done.

      Some people make me laugh how stupid they are. Well done, you can put in an opinion with no research. Rickrideshorses is correct. Obviously there are powerful people who will abuse power. But I bet people in high places during the Tudor, Victorian or medieval era abused there power aswell. For example a prince may kill the king for the throne, I can't think of a real example off of my head. There are always was and will be people like that. It's human nature, or atleast a human characteristic... Greed.

      The reason they were known as secret societies was because the civil authorities and mainstream faiths of those times feared competition hence persecutions and witch hunts. Now since western society or most of it has freedom of speech, such groups can meet openly now.

      Hattori Hanzo 3 years ago

      Using names like "Illuminati" is just a way to get people to reject the very easy-to-see and logical conclusion that a small group of extremely wealthy individuals is seeking to obtain and own all material wealth in the world. There is nothing different about this from the empires and monarchies of old. The desire to own and control all resources is the oldest story in the book. The most wealthy (and nearly completely interrelated) have simply banded together to achieve this goal by using corporations, banks, mass media, and marrying their power with governments to use their militaries,

      What is fascinating and frighteningly outstanding is that the masses have, as they have done throughout the ages, decided to relegate this obvious and logical occurrence to "conspiracy". Yet, they believe 19 cave-dwellers and their CIA-connected leader could override a trillion dollar air defense system with box-cutters and their Islamic anger. Get real. If you are uncomfortable with these obvious truths, keep watching Disney and CNN and stop being a shill.

      Greetings my little Darklings!

      Utterly preposterous that H.M. The Queen of England has a link with the Illuminati. Her Majesty is far too busy with affairs of state to entertain such 'Tom foolery'. The Palace promulgates court circulars daily with every member of the Royal Family engaged in one appointment or another. The only secret Queen Elizabeth II keeps is what happens at the frequent audience with Her Majesty's (elected) Prime Minister.

      Just occurred to me that all of those 1950's T.V. action heroes, to wit; Captain Video, Batman, Zorro etc, even the Man from UNCLE. They all had a secret hide out, cave or some kind of headquarters in a remote location known only to a trusted servant. Why the need for such deception? Maybe just to add mystery to the plotline perhaps!

      Reading through the comments, it appears that you are totally outvoted. Yes there are nutters out there who pose to us some unimaginable theories, however to to say that is the world, or similar statements. Being part of the media is not the best forum, as we all know, there is a control of certain media. Even Einstein, and other learned men have for years, made statements about mass media propaganda or brainwashing. I say to you, don't discount all theories, because some of them can be backed up and secondly, refer to the good book and it will appear to you in black & white. why would those who act deceptively, make what they are carrying out, public for all to witness. You need to rethink on some of your points and make an effort as an individual & not as a journalist to determine fact from fable.

      There's no point in arguing. We all have eyes to see. There is truth behind lies. Has the world become too crowded for all of us? It's time to change and make it better. There's is a God. The One who gave us life. Let's live life. Love enough to accept that we are all different. When we perish, we will all find the truth. For now, let's make our lives worth looking back. Put smiles on people's faces and move on. Think about how we can make others feel loved because every life is precious; it's a gift. It is too short to worry about things that can't be proven. "Don't seek for answers that cannot be given." There's a time for everything.

I happened to get 'honeytrapped' by a plain clothes military police woman offering me privledges for informing on my fellow troopies. I declined and she told me she knew more about me than i knew my self and that she could easily arrange for things to happen to me. So that was the end of my short lived military career.

      An officer could lie and be believed where as our word wouldn't be accepted in a dispute. The number of times i saw my fellow troopies get scapegoated and thrown to the wolves was startling and we were supposed to be on the same side. In that era two types were not wanted in the armed forces namely 'gays' and Jehovah's Witnesses.

      Ever since the beginning of history, man has been trying to conquer the world. Ever since king james the third, to napoleon bonepart, to hitler. If your trying to say that this time in history is different, let me ask you something, whos really crazy... me or you? If all these so called "inclosed" or "insane" conspiracy theorists are false, imagine how crazy about how dillusionall these people are, but if there not false, why have they been kicked out of society... imagine this... all these conspiracy theorists are warning the public, but the public says "if the illuminati is soo... secret why is all theyre info on the internet" the illuminati is making us look crazy... yes the internet is a great source of information, but its the illuminatis greatest weapon. Everyones tracked on the internet. The illuminati is proved... george washing ton made a statement written on document with his own hand writing. Do your research... look up"fema the illuminati" 911 was an inside job, or chem trails. You cant say that conspiracy theorists are inclosed, at least we know the truth... were prepared... e pluribus unam

      I've read a lot of articles written by believers in the Illuminati. Most of these people are clearly mentally ill. Everything they say is completely illogical but if you don't believe in it you're the sheep. They have zero proof, go on and on about well if it wasn't for the Illuminati how could this happen or how could that happen. They can't comprehend that shit happens. It does.

      But another thing is these people are so damn lazy. They use the Illuminati or flouride or whatever other silly things the evil cabal is supposedly doing to control us all as an excuse to not do anything to make their world a better place. After all, why be socially active if the world is run by a few Satan-controlled evildoers. If everyone from teachers to cops to entertainers is involved. These people are lazy keyboard warriors attacking singers for supposedly selling their soul to a being who doesn't exist instead of going out in their world and making it better.

      So, yeah, these people are a combination of mentally ill and lazy. And it sucks for the smart people in the world that we have to constantly listen to their insane crap. Oh well!

      Do you love Jesus?

      You do not love Jesus. You love Satan. You just gave me the 'ol Satan rope-a-dope. I'm not believing a word. If you had said I'm honest and truthful in all my day-to-day affairs, I would believe your love of Jesus to be credible. But, you say this is Satan's world and so you act appropriately, (as Satan would), and just ask forgiveness? and so you only need to act righteous when it becomes God's world? Who told you this? Answer straight. No mincing words. If you said you do your best but, like all people, you're not perfect, I'd believe you. You said something entirely different that didn't even answer my question indirectly. That is the work of Satan. You accept authority as the truth rather than truth as the authority. All humans are imperfect. That's where your argument doesn't fit. You want us to trust and believe the official story. Then you say it's Satan's world. If it is, you're asking us to trust Satan.

      First, I'd like to congratulate you on this WELL-hated post. You pulled a very sore thumb out of the pudding. Famous or infamous, this post did the job.

      However, this conspiracy that's going on that says 'we are all separate' and 'just worry about yourself and your family' has done well to mislead you from the truth. The truth is we are all connected. I've known a lot of people with your philosophy that have un-done and harmed a lot of people in the name of 'just worrying about themselves.' They are conniving, backstabbing liars. It is the furthest thing from love. When you go before St. Peter and tell him how well you just looked after yourself and your family, watch how fast he pulls the drop lever. It's selfish, distrustful and breeds the very things you dislike. We are all connected, bro. Whatsoever you do to the least of your brothers, that you do unto God. If you see a stranger who needs help, extend yourself. That's what creates trust. What you preach creates distrust. Carry on that way if you must but, you shouldn't be preaching it to others, St. Peter does like that either. If you give twenty dollars to charity, that doesn't do it. You have to be honest in all your day-to-day affairs. You don't really have to, but I'll never trust you either.

      well tbh people the illuminati is a CONSPIRACY, the definition of a conspiracy is when someone plans to do something, if somebodys been planning to do something that has to do with the illuminati, they have been planing for a long ass and has not done anything to us american people, so wouldnt u think that if nothings being done thats allegedly being planed they are either too scared to do it and aint about that life or its something that was made up that stupid people began to believe it and nobody set it strait.

      Has anyone considered that these conspiracies are the primary tool of the "illuminati" and that the conspiracy theorists are the "illumaniti" distracting you from what is actually going on by creating a maze of bullshit to keep you on the edge of your seat while the information misleads you from looking after your own life, at the same time as crediting themselves for doing just that!

      What is on the screen is just "entertainment" do not believe it as it is. Real life is outside (says the guy stuck to his computer screen :P ), working, providing for those you love, making sure that your life is in order and enjoying it while you do it. As for the suffering, yes it is real, but the more we are misled the more real it's going to get (chaos, violence, distrust, fear, etc..).

      let love prevail.. not fear and hate.

      This is an aweful post. No facts. I used to think conspiracies weren't true, I saw documentaries and automatically dismissed them. And as I have grown up, decided to have my own opinion on matters, and after seeing the way the world is changing, I have come to the conclusion several years ago that there are higher powers who have plans for the world and they are not good for 95% of the Earths population.

      I decided to Google about proof that the Illuminati don't exist, because I am open minded and also accept the possibility I could be wrong in what I believe. But I never find any compelling arguments, just trash talk from arrogant people. You say in the post that "conspiracy theorists" are arrogant and stupid, but that's rediculous. Many of the post from people who dont believe are very hateful and arrogantly written themselves, against people who try to share the idea that the world is not what it seems.

      There are stacks of evidence that do seem to point towards a NWO. Why don't they remove the videos from YouTube? Well, leaving them on there just fits their stories of, "if it was real we wouldn't let it be on there", and if they took it down, everyone would go, "wait, why are they taking the videos down if they have nothing to hide?". People need to start thinking for themselves. Make your own mindup and dont be afraid of what others will think if your opinion isn't the same as theirs.

      The same people you're slamming are the same people who said the government spy on us, and funnily enough, they have been! People got slammed for believing it back then, and now it's proven to be true, a lot of people just say oh yeah but it's fine they stop the terrorists. Well a) they don't and b)maybe you should listen to "conspiracy theories", cos they've been proven true before and they may well turn out to be true in future.

You have the worst version of democracy imaginable, with little personal freedoms, and a system of government which is corruptable. Politicians in better countries have to declare all donations.

      Do they really want to foment fear and hatred? I think 9/11 resulted in our own government fomenting more fear than all the conspiracies put together. I won't give or take away from conspiracies. I will say it is important to question things. Don't go blindly into that goodbye. Also, while we were told that the Roswell crash was a weather balloon, the very guy shown in the photo came back years later to say that was not true, but that they had good reasons for wanting to hide that truth. I think we should always question what doesn't make sense to us because, if the reasons stop being good reasons, we'll all be to blame. I don't say that to instill fear. I say that to keep things in balance. I say that to make it a better world for everyone.

      This is funny and sadly naive.

      This gives the impression that conspiracies never happen. The world would be a far nicer place if that were true. Hitler might have been a good leader if he had never conspired to take over the world.

      The writer starts off being a little sloppy saying that conspiracy theories are not real. If they were not real, then we never would've heard of them. But the theories are indeed real. The subjects of those theories may not be real. There's a big difference, here. Such sloppiness runs throughout the article.

      This writer doesn't realize that many so-called "conspiracy theories" are actually only facts or questions. The media has played so many people with labels that people look only at the labels and knee-jerk reaction to dismiss the topics because they have been labeled as "conspiracy theory." How quaint. How utterly dumb.

      http://AE911Truth.org is one website that has pretty well proved with Facts that the 3 WTC towers on 9/11 collapsed because of controlled demolition. Here's just a taste of the FACTS:

      * WTC7 fell at perfect free fall for the first 8 floors of collapse.

      * Free fall means Zero resistance to collapse.

      * Solid steel Never offers Zero resistance.

      Simple physics shows that the solid steel structure of WTC7 could not have achieved free fall unless Controlled Demolition was used. Because it takes months to prepare a building of this size, and because many of the tenants were highly secure government agencies (including the CIA), 9/11 was an inside job. Yes, you can say it out loud: "conspiracy!" Elements (not all) of our government conspired to commit murder.

      Just like the WMDs, our government lied.

      It looks as though the author of this article believed the "conspiracy theory" fed to him by the government, but he doesn't realize that it was a conspiracy theory. I think any terrorist would want to take credit for all of their hits. Osama bin Laden denied having anything to do with 9/11.

      On the evening of 9/11, Mayor Giuliani had clean up crews start clearing the crime scene of its evidence. This is a felony!

      The top military officers responsible for the massive security failures of 9/11 were each given promotions instead of courts martial. Accident? Incompetence? Or payoff for complicity?

      NIST scientists started their investigation of WTC7 by establishing an artificially early start time on the video of the building's collapse. That's scientific fraud. Fraud by accident? Fraud by incompetence? Or fraud as part of the cover-up?

      The Illuminati was started on May 1, 1776. Do they exist today? I don't know. But the author of this article seems to claim a special omniscience in saying that the Illuminati are not real. They may not be, but a lack of evidence does not prove this. To claim that a lack of evidence proves the non-existence of something is an "argument-to-ignorance" type logical fallacy. One piece of evidence could blow such a "theory" out of the water. Without such evidence, we have to say "unknown." Anything else is entirely unscientific and a misuse of skepticism.

      The author makes all manner of claims about "conspiracy theorists," but does not present evidence to prove any of it. All conspiracy theorists are arrogant? He would have to interview all such theorists to prove this. Even one such theorist who is humble would destroy his claim. That's the kind of sloppiness which destroys this article and its credibility.

      Could there be kooks who are conspiracy theorists? Yes, of course. Could there be some humble, smart and hard working conspiracy theorists? Yes, very much so.

      Don't get your panties in a twist over the label. Otherwise your mind might swallow anything and that would be a tragedy.

      I disagree with so much of this article. Conspiracy theory isn't a bunch of uneducated hippys believing in a new world order. It's people thinking outside the box that has been designed for us. Looking for alternitive news sources than what is provided to the general public. If you think 911 "just happened" I'm sorry to hear that. You call those who believe something may be wrong as ignorent, but I don't think I've seen more ignorance in such a post as yours. To disclose or disprove a theory because you feel it doesn't match up is nonsense. God is a theory, science is a theory, gravity is a theory, you can't prove gravity but we believe it's there.

      I like contrasting views, sir. I ate at a nice Irish place with my brother and ma. My mother,

      (coerced), was negative about her Irish roots. I said there were differences between the Irish here

      and the Irish in Ireland if my mother believed she came from selfish, fighting, ingrates as she seemed

      to suggest. I've been there 3X. Experience is a key factor. Experience is not a day trip or vacation.

      It takes time. Then I stated that Laissez-Faire politics was said to be a major cause of the Famine

      that gave this country all their Irish, and jokingly, so we should thank the "free market capitalists,"

      or we never would have made it to America. He said, "that's right." He agrees with "laissez-faire."

      I proceeded no further. The winners win and the losers die. It's not always nice but it's always the

      way it should be. Right? And, in fact, these same "laissez-faire" politicians blamed the Irish themselves

      painting them as ape-like who didn't plan for any such types of crises. That from people who invbaded a

      country that wasn't theirs and enslaving people on their own land. Did a country do that? Or a free

      market? You see, the landowners were British. How did they own the land? Oh yes! They just took it!

      Is that the free market? So, if I want something, I'll just take it. I like that. If that had been

      brought to light in the day, it would've caused worldwide outrage. Also, relief came into that country

      from other countries, but the relief was withheld so as not to embarrass the queen. A few centuries later,

      who cares? The British created the situation and then blamed the victims. A great deal of the people

      who question things do not blame. I think they're just tired of seeing history repeat itself. I believe

      a wise person should question everything. More importantly, hold open the possibility that what they

      believe might also be wrong. There is no other way to the truth. I believe if contradictions can be

      found in your arguments, we can't get to the truth. I, honestly, would love to hold tight with your

      argument. But, let's take the Bildeberg Group for instance; why do they need such security? They take

      over complete hotels and close it off to the public? They place numerous gunmen around and even have curious

      onlookers followed. Why? If there's nothing really sinister going on, why such secrecy? One thing I

      think you can even agree with is these people have great influence. Can't you? Anyway, I like your

      post.

Before you just believe in something because it confirms that you are somehow superior to everyone else in the universe do a fact check and look up unbiased information, I'm SICK of people believing in things because they need to. (Humans have a instinct to believe in things even if they are wrong) just please before you believe in something listen to everything not just one small biased view on the subject.

      Dear Rickrideshorses,

      Even though i hate the title "conspiracy theorist", let's call it that for the moment. Let's put you in the box "sceptic" for now to make it easier to understand. You've tried to discredit the conspiracies by saying "that's all they are, theories" but in your attempt to discredit them, you mainly discredit yourself because most of the things you say in your article are nothing more then "theories" themselves. The fact you speak about "they" like we all think exactly alike tells me you know so little about it. Conspiracy theorists are arrogant? They do not trust life? They are control freaks? Did we meet in person, or is that based on facts? Have you ever read a conspiracy item open minded? Without thinking "this is bullshit" before you even started reading? Most of the people that i know that do have interest for these topics are very peaceful people who care a lot about other people, so what gives you the idea that "we" want to spread fear? I believe fear is an emotion that holds us back from asking questions, so I do not promote fear at all.

      I am convinced that we are being dominated by a few. I mean, did they ever come to your house to ask if you are okay with it if they invaded another country? And if they did, do you think it would have any influence if you said no? While you are (maybe) living a perfectly normal life, most of the people on this planet haven't got that privilege.

      Most "conspiracy theories" are based on facts, off course there are a lot of people that can turn anything into conspiracies. So just like with every information you'll receive you've got to use your brains and don't just follow everything blindly, but that goes for mainstream media as well. And funny thing, you said "conspiracy theorists" are arrogant, but you are the one ending your article with "So there you have it" like you've just single handedly proved the fact that "conspiracy theorists" were wrong after all. No hard feelings….hahaha

      There is much evidence that the modern Iluminati exist. It is not theories, I do think conspiracy theorists are incorrect but these are not theories, people know these things because we have documents, photo's, videos, witnesses. There is no need to say how we think, there are millions who believe the Illuminati exist and we all do think differently. It is actually mainly the mass that believe 2012 is the end or new beginning because the mass have been influenced by Hollywood. So I conclude there is evidence, it is not a theory because we are not creating theories and millions believe they exist and we aren't all ignorant etc.

      But it's vitally important to remember conspiracy theories are just that - theories. There is no evidence to prove that they are true. A theory, according to the dictionary, is ''a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world; an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances''.

      ------------------------------------

      You do realise that by giving the first definition, you're negating the point you're trying to make? Your dictionary's definition: a) corroborates that theories ARE substantiated, thus evidenced, so they do need to be true in order to be theories in the first place and b) refers to scientific theories that are so because of processes of tried, tested and proved methods? Even the second definition you gave implies that there has to be a consensual acceptance of some information for it to be applicable. At most, the conspiracy noises such as Illuminati are hypotheses and even that attribution comes with a lot of slackness. I prefer to call them fables myself.

      U R WRONG, THIS IS FAKE, UR 1 OF THEM

      ..... Usually says the person who's entire knowledge of the Illuminati comes from:

      1- Documentaries on History Channel/Hollywood movies

      B- Books by conspiracy theorists

      III- Internet articles by like theorists

      +- Seeing things you think make a pattern.

      Haven't you ever stopped to think that, by buying into the fearmongering to the point of being a hypocritical "Everyone else is wrong and are blind sheep" jerkass/potential post-apocalypse-warmonger, you yourself become a part of the Illuminati plot? Not saying nothing goes on, but we have to step back and realize that we are all nothing more than glorified monkeys. The Illuminati's glorified monkeys who think they actually serve some importance just because they have oodles of dough that could, in the blink of an eye, be wiped out.

      This is whats funny: If they really control the world, why havent they taken it over yet? They supposevly have all the power to do so so why havent they? Because they can't. If they really control the world, why do they just put it in music videos? a government would do that kind of bullshit. AND nobody gives a fuck anyways. We listen to the music, not the symbols, and if they really controlled the world, why the fuck would they kill other soldiers of other goverments, for pleasure? A government wouldnt do that. Those theorist are nothing by belivers of complete and utter BS.

      Illuminati wants to get total power by dominating the world. Thus, they are motivated by greed and selfishness. Considering this fact, the members are greedy and selfish. Considering this fact, the members will probably end up splintering the group apart in order to gain total power for themselves.

      Thus, a group such as the Illuminati would probably self-destruct simply because its ideals require self-destructive beliefs. Corruption spreads like wild fire, and it will destroy everything in its path, even those who started it. Only in fiction is human nature somehow perfectly balanced that evil can last so long without being harmful to itself.

      It's kind of like starting a fire then realizing that the fire is coming in your direction because the wind had a sudden shift.

      Nature will always destroy humanities best plans.

      Good works together, Evil works alone.

      My stepdad's brother became obsessed with the illuminati and aliens after he had to divorce his alcoholic and crazy wife. He has so much free time on his hands that this is all he does. It's sad.

      I'm just like, who cares if it's real or not? Does it really affect you? As long as they aren't taking food from my mouth it's all gravy. YEAH I SEE what people are talking about in music videos, but who cares? Yeah they throwing up a sign that looks like devil horns or three sixes. Yeah everyone's rocking the stupid triangles throwing up the roc sign. They look stupid. Let em be. Life is too short to be thinking about what other people are doing.

      god, open ur eyes kid, ever heard of the bilderberg group, our world leaders go there and we dont have a clue what their talking about. just this is enough to worry about. our skys are filled with barium and aluminum. ofcourse we dont have evidence to back this all up, the govt sure wont do a legal investigation on it since they are then ones behind it. underground bunkers are being build all around the us costing billions of dollars , u dont have to be smart to figure this out. thousands of whistleblowers who worked with the government are coming clean and telling us the truth , mainstream media tells lies and twist the truth all the time, and ur telling me the world is fine and there is nothing to worry about, i pray for my children and their children because if ppl like you keep spending time on writing stupid blogs like this instead of finding out the truth and fighting for freedom, were goddamn screwed

      I just want to say that, the nature of man has not changed since the beginning of man. Men are both evil and good all at different degrees. There is no modern mystery about how men lived back in the day. They made sure their basic needs were taken care of and some aspired for more. Like making sure their grand children's needs would be taken care of.

      If you want to know the truth just ask yourself simple questions like what would the average person do in that situation. For instance if I were the king of Egypt what would I want. Would I create a religion that inspired people to become king or keep them as sheep?

      Or go even simpler than that, have you ever been part of a social group that was somewhat exclusive? Now just imagine if your group happened to own 95% of the world. what would you do. Would you have meetings to ensure you kept your 95% of the world?

      As for my personal belief, do i think there are secret societies influencing the world, Yes.

      To what degree I cannot tell you.

      But they are out there.

      Perfect example, Corporations.

      TO THE AUTHOR: You say conspiracy theorists (generally, I assume) only look at one side of evidence. Well, as David did, I set out to disprove the Illuminati theory and found out that the most influential people in the world get together in secret, that is no secret. That is not a theory, the attendees such as certain rothschilds, rockefellers, ben bernanke, and 40+ CEO's of the worlds richest corps. attend. The odd thing, NO MEDIA COVERAGE. That is not a theory my friend, and to ignorantly accept it occurs and pass it off with "who cares" is ridiculous.

      You say conspiracy theorists don't look at both sides, well you aren't even replying to the people posting about intelligent topics that would open your mind. I'm not saying demons control the world, or hurricanes are caused by a bio weapon, I am only looking into topics that have supporting evidence. You want to look at both sides of evidence for a consp. theory? Google "9/11 pentagon plane or missile", it will blow your mind.

      Yes, you contradict yourself. Yes you can say all fish will turn green. But you have no evidence to prove it. 911, illuminati, religion, other conspiracy s. They all have hard factual evidence. Evidence that is easier to prove than to disprove. If it is done right in front of you, it is harder to see. Why do you think that 80 percent of the worlds wealth is had by only a few people? People that happen to meet up regularly.

      Gday mate. I set out to disprove the whole illuminati theory for myself yesterday. Instead I saw proof that the world's most rich and powerful are into occult practices. Search for 'bohemian grove' to see for yourself.

      I could probably create any idea and turn it into a huge theory if I find the right people to believe it. I've read books, web Pages, watched video suggestions, and sorry I still don't believe. I kept an open mind, but nothing won me over... I don't believe the illuminati exists, and if they did.. Oh well I have a good life male good money and I know my loved ones and I are going to heaven when we die.. So I don't live in fear or curiosity or the need to persuade/convince anybody.. I live peacefully and simply happy.. and i did it all on my own with God by my side :) I wish everyone the best and may God bless you

      I choose to not waste my life researching these organizations. The more you have it running through your subconscious, the more real it is to your life. I'll probably die knowing very little about illuminati, freemasons, etc. because I don't care. Our sun will supernova eventually, a tornado may kill me tomorrow, a black hole may enter our solar system and destroy all of us next week.. life is just weird in general. People seem to get more annoyed when it's other people or groups of people ruling/ruining their lives instead of nature.. maybe it'd help to accept that peoples' minds (corruption, greed, etc) are nature as well.

      The fact that you call us theorists lacking in education is really quite rude. So I guess going to college for an astronomy and astrophysics major and minor are just nothing...Because all those theories about space are bull crap, but of course, you know the real answer for it right? You know everything there is to know, that's why we do not need theories.

      Gravity is just a theory, so I guess it can't be real.

      All you did was give reasons why you don't believe in any of these theories. And then you proceed to say that conspiracy theorists are angry with the world probably because their life isn't going as planned and they need to come up with these theories to compensate. You gave no concrete evidence to disprove anything and you act smug throughout your whole article like you know you're right. Basically to sum it up all you said was I don't think conspiracy theories are real. You my friend are just as ignorant and stupid as you make conspiracy theorists out to be. Please refrain from ever typing an article again before you get real evidence. Thank you.

      You Christians are betraying St Paul. Paul actually said to respect your leaders, not hate them. It isn't just Jews, it's Christians, Muslims, and even Alex Jones are part of it. So you theorists need to wwake up to the reality I know that ALL humanity is screwed. You, me, everyone. Why don't you all live in caves if you're all light sensitive, since Satan is everywhere with LIGHT.
