One thing is certain - conspiracies do exist. The majority of crimes committed all over the world involve some kind of conspiracy. Additionally, the term 'conspiracy theorist' was coined by the CIA. I have done a lot of research into many conspiracy theories and although many of them are blown out of proportion, there is usually some truth to them. There are many conspiracy theories which have already been proven to be true and there are more being proven true all the time.
The truth is stranger than fiction as the saying goes. I find that many of the conspiracy theories hold much more truth than seen on the surface. In today's media driven world where public opinions can be swayed by a social media post or an opinion piece, we see many instances of "the tail wagging the dog." Stories are "planted" to drive a specific narrative in the hopes public opinion will agree and expand on - anyone who finds contradicting details after the fact is branded as a kook and their theories swept under the rug.
Look at "Operation Mockingbird," "Iran Contra," and "The 1919 Black Sox Scandal" just to list a few which were proven to be mostly true. What's to say that this can't happen now? Someday we'll find that "Sandy Hook" was all staged (after all there were no bodies ever seen, right?)
My response is that conspiracy theories exist because the event had unexplained or unsatisfactory conclusions. Investigations are supposed to resolve all the issues, and make valid and objective conclusions.
The truth appears that investigations are made to hide the truth and protect someone, or some group.
The 911 commission is a perfect event for generating conspiracy theories. Are conspiracy theories always wrong?
No, they are attempts at filling in the holes left by official reports.
The 911 commission and NIST held a lengthy but unprofessional investigation of the 911 WTC 1,2 and 7 buildings all free falling.
The steel from these building was never tested, and that was one of the failures of the report. Instead, the commission relied on fabricated computer graphics to push their points on how and why the building fell at the speed of gravity.
The steel from the WTC buildings was collected and shipped to China. This is hardly the proper method of investigation. Any way the list goes on, as to how the commission did little to no testing, and yet reported a conclusion.
WTC building 7 was not hit by a plane, and the report suggests that it caught fire from debris form WTC 1 and 2.
Forget the conspiracy theory, the commission didn't explain how three different building, and one that was not hit by planes can fall at the speed of gravity. The fires didn't lat that long, and the heat from the first was well below the melting or even the structural failure of the beams.
No high rise structure has ever failed in this manner from fires before, and now we have three. Without testing how could NIST and the Commission make any valid report.
This is the reason why we have conspiracy theories.
many may be correct.the official version of the story is never correct.

Do you think that Conspiracy Theories are worth investigating further?What is your feeling about the term "Conspiracy Theory"? Does this have a bad connotation and meaning to you?

There are so many conspiracy theories out there, from ones that sound spot on to inter-dimensional alien human hybrid shape shifters (I keep expecting to see the pope turn into a lizard man).What conspiracy theories do you believe are true or very likely to be true? Are there some you don't believe...

We have seen time and time again that governments lie. Even so, I know many people who do not believe there could ever be a conspiracy. Why when we know someone lies, do people decide conspiracy could not be possible?Do you believe in any "conspiracy theories"? If so, which one(s) and why?
