The Pantheon of Conspiracy Theories

Robert Sapolsky opines on conspiracy theories in the pages of the Wall Street Journal in light of the upcoming anniversary of the JFK assassination. He makes a point that will come to no surprise to our regular readers, but it is nice to see it proven out in a study, that if you believe in one conspiracy theory that you are more likely to believe in many, even if they are mutually contradictory.


Recent research by Michael Wood and Karen Douglas of the University of Kent in the U.K. points to the distinguishing characteristics of this frame of mind. In a systematic analysis of online discussions of 9/11 conspiracy theories, they showed that critics of these theories (that is, supporters of the conventional account of 9/11) tend to cite evidence in support of their stance. Conspiracists, by contrast, devote more space to arguing against the conventional view and are far less interested in supporting the validity of their alternative explanations.
 Other recent work by Dr. Wood and his colleagues shows how this mode of thinking goes a step further: Conspiracy theorists can be so focused on rejecting all official versions of things that they come to embrace alternative explanations that are mutually contradictory.
 The study concerned conspiracy theories surrounding the 1997 death of Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed. The alternative "real" stories listed as options by the researchers included: Queen Elizabeth having Diana killed to prevent the mother of the future king from marrying an Arab, Diana's being killed by business enemies of the Fayed family, and the princess and Fayed faking their own deaths.
 Volunteers were asked to rate the likelihood of each story. Conspiracists in the group often endorsed scenarios that were mutually contradictory. Those who believed, for example, that Princess Diana was assassinated were significantly more likely than chance to believe that she is still alive. In other words, when contemplating any given scenario, the fervent conviction that we are constantly being deceived trumped their ability to assess the internal consistency of their own thinking.

Hmm, that sounds familiar.

"Lyin Ian, your crippled epistemology makes you think it's contradictory to believe that there were explosions recorded as the towers collapses, but that the explosives were also silent, which is why no explosions were heard. You girls live in a fantasy world."

Or....

"Skidmark, it's not contradictory to think that one should criticize the Bush administration for ignoring hundreds of warnings that bin Laden was about to attack the US, but that none of this matters because bin Laden didn't do it. The Bush administration planted the sometimes thermite/sometimes explosives in the towers. You girls live in a fantasy world."

With history it's all-too easy to make broad generalizations, until one digs into the facts. With the JFK assassination, this is so true. Learn all the facts in concentrated form with hyperlinks free with my JFKScope, and then see what generalizations you can make:

Yup.

9/11 Troof has been a constant evolution in stupid.

"There were no planes, oh wait, there were? Well in NYC, but a missile hit the Pentagon. Where'd AA77 go? It didn't exist. United 93's crash site was staged. The WTC was brought down by controlled demo. No explosions? It was thermite? No thermite? It was Nanothemite. No? Well what about WTC7? That was weird, right? Yah huh."

Or...

"9/11 was needed to justify a war in Iraq"

But no Iraqis took place in the attacks.

"That's the genius of this false flag attack. With no Iraqis it pretty much means anyone was behind it. So Bush/Hitler was able to link Saddam Hussein to the attacks even though he never said Iraq had anything to do with the attack. Open your eyes!"

The WSJ article does not cite any papers by name when it makes claims about "recent research", nor does it present any direct quotes from the named experts. We are thus forced to rely on the author's characterizations of what the experts said, with no clear verification path.

The author defeats James B.'s point (that indulgence of apparent contradictions is necessarily pathological) in the concluding paragraph, the one that James B omitted, when the author invokes the scenario "Suppose the powers that be announce that X is the case. If someone says, 'I'm skeptical. It could be X+1, or it could be X–1 instead,' they may be on to something."

The discussion on these issues might be much improved if terms and distinctions were defined rigorously, such as the difference between a rational skeptic as described by Dr. Sapolsky above and a kneejerk conspiracy theorist. Screwloosechange's raison d'être seems to be to try to obscure the difference between those two things.

A rational skeptic has facts and data on his side, and uses reason.

A knee-jerk conspiracy theorist has no data or reason, just innuendo and paranoia.

So, for example, I'm a rational skeptic when it comes to the Bible because I have (for example) facts about the age of the earth on my side.

You're a knee-jerk conspiracy theorist because you just babble endlessly about magic spray-on thermite and innuendo about widows. You're also mentally ill, have no job, live with your parents, and have a hideous haircut.

It becomes pathological when that person continues "...but it's definitely not X. It cannot possibly be X. It's obviously not X because they're telling us it is X." Even Resposible Truthers make this error.

It's funny that a JFK spammer would show up because it is a great example of how quickly a conspiracy theory can fall apart yet go unnoticed by those who wallow in them.

The first mistake was running with a second gunman before proving that there was a second gunman. The theory raced out of control from that point obscuring the basic - and proven fact that all three shots came from the 6th Floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository. Oswald was the lone shooter, and his gun did the shooting.

The glaring red flag that the JFK CTs are crap is that they are inconsistent. In a real conspiracy or plot ALL OF THE EVIDENCE LEADS BACK TO A SINGLE GROUP OF PEOPLE. Every line goes to the guilty at some point, and no further. The true culprits depend on who's book you bought (and I bought a lot): The Mob, the CIA, the Mob & the CIA, Hunt Oil & the CIA, Cuba, Anti-Castro Cubans, accidental Secret Service weapons discharge, Claire Luce Booth, and they've even managed to work in the Bush family in the last few years.

Contrast this with Watergate, a classic conspiracy with many moving parts. None of the players have changed, no new bad guys have emerged, no alternate stories have come to light, and almost everyone involved - including Deep Throat - have written books about their part in the story. It has not changed.

In 12 years the fact surrounding the attacks of 9/11 have not changed. 19 Al Qaeda hijackers took over four commercial jets and crashed them into three of their four targets. These fact have never been in dispute by any intellectually honest person. There are a few details we have yet to learn, but they are trivial things that will only fill in the back stories and not change the big picture.

That's just the way it is, and it drives Troofers crazy (er).

Creationism is fantastically, idiotically wrong in every way, just like 9/11 truth. The fact that there are many creationists out there, unlike 9/11 truth (which has about 10 people who still believe in it), doesn't change the fact they're completely wrong.

The fact that creationism is still very much a force in society is why scientists spend a lot of time refuting it. 9/11 truth is dead, so nobody wastes their time refuting it. We don't even refute in these comments anymore. We just make fun of you for the fact that you're unemployed and have a hideous haircut.

Well, given your limited command of the English language, it's not surprising that you're dumb enough to think WTC 7 is some kind of smoking gun.

So what you're saying is that the perpetrators of 9/11 (presumably the Bush administration) didn't have the mandate for war from killing 3000 people, destroying two iconic skyscrapers, and crashing 4 airplanes. No, what was needed was to demolish a nondescript building that nobody had ever heard of hours after the fact with no additional deaths or injuries. Only then would Americans be clamoring for war.

Don't think too hard about this, it's probably more than your feeble mind can bear. Instead, just go make sure your customers don't get served burnt french fries.

And, dammit, wouldn't you know, he set the coordinates for longitude to "East" instead of "West" and create Typhoon Haiyan instead. So he's been fined a billion dollars and there are ten thousand dead in the Philippines. Shit happens, I guess.

No, it didn't. That's not the kind of thing that would occur to a mentally healthy adult.

GMS, a paper shredder needs to be employed by the CIA itself, and its use would be known inside the agency. Demolishing the building can come from outside.

RGT, what is mentally unhealthy about supposing that a government might want to physically destroy a government office to destroy inconvenient files?

Ian, haven't you done enough damage to the credibility of SLC?

The lying liar whines, "...RGT, what is mentally unhealthy about supposing that a government might want to physically destroy a government office to destroy inconvenient files?"

It's called paranoia, Mr. homosexual stalker spam.

By the way, goat fucker, would you like to lose 10 pounds of ugly fat? Cut off your shit-filled head.

Modified attack baboons could be sent into the building at night and use paper shredders when the buildings are empty.

RGT, what is mentally unhealthy about supposing that a government might want to physically destroy a government office to destroy inconvenient files?

Why not just use airstrikes to destroy the building. Stealth bombers could have dropped laser-guided bombs on WTC 7 in the middle of the night.

The fact that you haven't considered this explains why you're so confused about 9/11.

Ian, haven't you done enough damage to the credibility of SLC?

Brian hasn't considered the possibility of HAARP being used to create Typoon Haiyan. That's typical. Since Brian was banned from the truth movement, he wouldn't know what real truthers believe.

Let's also remember that Brian has yet to present any evidence that Laurie Van Auken's husband is dead. When I presented credible evidence that he's living it up in Cabo with a new woman, Brian just squealed and cried.

Squealing and crying is not an argument, Brian.

Yes, Brian, you've been saying this for years now. Maybe you should stop posting here?

Lol sure Brian, using a paper shredder would be suspicious in an office but rigging it for explosives is apparently just a normal day.
