Comment: I truly believe that

In post: I'm a Skeptic

I truly believe that

just as there are those that are overly paranoid, and compulsively latch onto way more conspiracies than might actually exist, there are also those that are overly slow to except and or embrace that there are way too many conspiracies within our nation's recent history. I would even go so far as to consider the non-believers having a sort of disorder. Something is going on in their heads that prevents them from accepting or "getting it". It's as if they believe that evil does not exist ...despite evidence of evil spanning from the dawn of time to present day. If there is evil, how could there not be conspiracies (a word that still remains in the dictionary for good reason)?

Have judges ever been bought off?
Have police officers ever been convicted of abusing their authority?
Have politicians ever violated the constitution?
Did the media generate propaganda leading up to both world wars?
Does the media limit what the tell you?
Have corporate/military/media interests ever lobbied our leaders for business or policy directions?
Have citizens been demonized/censored/ridiculed for asking questions?

Because the obvious answers to the above questions are clearly "duh!" ...and since conspiracies haven't magically ceased to exist, to be incapable of acknowledging their presence really is sad. And to discount or ignore evidence, witness testimony, facts, and motives (and even published policy positions) is very unscientific.
