One classical definition of a conspiracy is – “a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful. ” The idea of something being thought of as a conspiracy is familiar to most people as generally not benevolent.
When it comes to conspiracies, there are things you know, things you don’t know, and things you don’t know you don’t know. Becoming cognizant of this truth can lead to greater awareness, but only if you acknowledge this truth.
To make a conspiracy into a something unbelievable, or at the least a questionable truth, just tag the word conspiracy to the word theory and you have the doubt desired on the part of those who perhaps want to deceive you, or have you question your own suspicions.
If you’ve been around for a while and have been paying attention, you may know for yourself of things that were branded by others as conspiracy theories, only later to find out that it was indeed more than theories, but true conspiracies.
For years there were true conspiracies that have been neutralized for a period of time, but the truth eventually comes to light. To highlight just some of the stories that were neutered as theories are as follows:
- Extraterrestrials – originating, existing, or occurring outside the earth or its atmosphere.
- Inner earth cities – The InnerEarth therefore consists of all the area that is below the Earth’s surface throughout the Globe, and includes the caverns within Earth’s Crust along with a vast tunnel system. Earth’s Crust is 800 miles thick from the Earth’s Surface to the inner hollow Surface within the the interior.
- UFOs – Unidentified flying object is the popular term for any aerial phenomenon that cannot immediately be identified.
- Secret Space Program – Each of these breakaway civilizations, according to GoodETxSG/Corey has their own secretspaceprogram. He says that there are currently three major secretspaceprograms belonging to various national and international entities on Earth. One of these is a large corporate entity similar to what was described in the movie Avatar.
- Settlements on the moon – A settlementontheMoon is no longer a pipe dream. Moon Express, a private US company has raised over $45 million to start a mining operation on the moon, and is sending a lander to the Moon before the end of the year. China is actively working to establish a manned research station on the Moon.
- Settlements on Mars
- 911 – 9/11 was a hoax. This is no longer a wild conspiracy assertion; it is a fact, supported by thousands of other verifiable facts, foremost of which are: The attacks of 9/11 COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED without the willful failure of the American defense system. In Washington, Air Force pilots demanded to fly but were ordered to stand down.
- Junk DNA – In genetics, the term junkDNA refers to regions of DNA that are noncoding. DNA contains instructions (coding) that are used to create proteins in the cell. However, the amount of DNA contained inside each cell is vast and not all of the genetic sequences present within a DNA molecule actually code for a protein.
- Mind Control – Brainwashing (also known as mindcontrol, menticide, coercive persuasion, thought control, thought reform, and re-education) is the concept that the human mind can be altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques. For me the scariest thing is that some people fail to think critically or independently enough to evaluate situations they face. In other words, they are vulnerable to mind manipulation without knowing it.
As you can see from the list above, at some point each example is or was labeled a conspiracy theory. That’s why research and an open mind is so important. What was true yesterday may no longer prove to be true today.
The theory part of a conspiracy theory serves to disarm, cloud and nullify any further thought on a subject. Many are led down the proverbial yellow brick road on very important matters. It can easily confuse and question the considered judgement of individuals wanting to learn and promote the truth.
Why would someone use the conspiracy theory? There are those who honestly believe, (probably because they were told) the same story that there really is a conspiracy theory. On the other hand, there are those who really don’t want you to know something of significance, and that’s a convenient way obfuscate, distract, and create doubt to send you off track and repel your assertion.
In government, politics in particular, we hear conspiracy theories used frequently to cast shade on a subject rather than confirm or deny a question. The attempt here is to make the question or assertion sound too ridiculous to be considered as true, or made to seem too complicated for a yes no answer.
Science is an area that constantly changes, but those not wanting to accept the truth are frequently labeled by those who do, as conspiracy theorists. That is why advances in medicine lag behind new discoveries by up to 20 or 30 years.
Pseudoscience, the antithesis of science is largely theoretical and easy to cast the conspiracy label on by making the assertion it’s not real science at all, but rather anecdotal conclusions presented in lieu of real science.
I believe the widest use of conspiracies is the world of politics where denial and spin is the main argument killer. It would be impossible to speak to any politician and not be met with spin. Washington is littered with professionals whose main talent is word craft (spin), and all politicians have all become quite proficient in the use of spin.
A conspiracy theory could rightly be considered any idea opposed by someone or some group who disagrees with you.
