There are allegations that people with ASD are more prone to following conspiracy theories than the average Joe. How do you define a conspiracy theory?
There is a comprehensive definition here:
This succinct definition is from Oxford Dictionaries:a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for an unexplained event.
Perhaps one of the major ones of recent years is one that I can't help myself but subscribe to. 9/11. Too much that happened that day simply doesn't add up. I'm not sure who was responsible... but when I read testimony from architects, structural engineers, demolition experts, munitions experts, air crash investigation engineers, scientists, police patrol men, firemen and countless others who've either investigated the disaster or were present on the day, I can't help but believe that the world was sold a lot of half-truths at best, and a huge bunch of lies at worst.
In the simplest terms, WTC 1 and 2 should never have collapsed in the way they did. And WTC 7 should never have collapsed at all, considering the minimal amount of damage it suffered. Come to that, 1 and 2 shouldn't have collapsed at all, either. Even a fully-laden passenger airliner striking structures of their size and strength would be the equivalent of a high-velocity rifle bullet being fired into a fence post. It might do considerable damage to the post... put it would remain standing!
But that's just my tuppence-worth on the subject....
Maybe one man's conspiracy theorist is another man's truth-seer!
I’ve got an inquisive/observant mind but I think conspiracy theories are misleading. I see it more as truth-seeing, but if it’s thought of as a conspiracy theory, people treat it like it’s a piece of gossip or something, it’s alomst like they accept it while speaking outrage about it. People have been pulling strategies like 9/11 for hundreds of years. It’s all a big crazy game.
Wikipedia is not always a reliable source of information. It's usually first rate for STEM articles but non-STEM articles can be biased or even misleading.
Remember that there are people who are paid £££ by organisations with vested interests to write an edit Wikipedia pages to reflect the vested interests of these organisations.
