Not Solving Conspiracy Theories



Given all that I’ve written about conspiracy science, you might think I know all there is about every conspiracy in recorded history. In fact, I feel confident in my analysis of the JFK assassination, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and a number of other conspiracies. However, I’ll never know all the details, and the great majority of conspiracies are Greek to me.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of. There’s a staggering number of unsolved crimes in the U.S., and law enforcement officials generally have a lot more evidence to work with than I do when perusing an attempted coup in Africa or ancient Egypt.

I’m pretty adept at weeding out bogus and fringe conspiracy theories. I can also make some intelligent guesses regarding credible theories. The bigger, more sensational conspiracies are much more likely be linked to the U.S. or the Jews than to Muslims, Eskimoes, or developing countries. However, my powers of observation and reasoning have their limits.

In summary, don’t feel bad if you don’t know it all. The important thing is that you hone your rational thinking skills and give conspiracy your best shot.
