The Ultimate Conspiracy Debunker

Recommended Posts

Probably not, but for those "on the fence", it might help provide them with a "toolkit" to see if they really want to buy into the nonsense.

Well, perhaps this may helps folks out a little more then...

 I recently came across a checklist on RationalWiki that I thought might be helpful concerning CT's:

CT CHECKLIST:

Logistics

  1. How large is the supposed conspiracy?
  2. How many people are part of this conspiracy?
  3. Are there enough of them to carry out the plan?
  4. What infrastructure and resources does it need?
  5. How much time and money did it take and where did this money come from?
  6. If there are many thousands of conspirators, how are they organized?
  7. Where are the secret conferences held?
  8. How do they keep track of membership?
  9. If they are organized through known channels or entities, how do they keep non-members who work there from uncovering the conspiracy?

Benefits

  1. Who gains what from the conspiracy and for what price?
  2. Is this the easiest way of gaining it? If not, why was it chosen over the easiest way?
  3. If it is an old conspiracy—who gains what from maintaining it?

Exposure

  1. How likely is it to remain covered up if it has gone on for a long time?
  2. If there are thousands of conspirators, and the conspiracy has gone on for decades, why have none of them defected?
  3. Why have none of them leaked the story?
  4. If many conspirators are dead, why have none of them told the truth on their deathbeds, or in their wills?
  5. There are many intelligence agencies associated with rival nations, with the ability to expose secrets. If, say, the United States government is running a global conspiracy, why have the French, Russian or Chinese intelligence agencies never revealed it, to cause a major scandal in the United States (if all intelligence agencies are involved, see #2)? If they have, when and where did they do so?

Plausibility

Does belief in this theory require accepting inherently contradictive premises that the conspiring entities are incredibly competent, bone stupid, organized, clever, and hopelessly incompetent—all at the same time?

Why would anyone take that video serious?  Even if there is a suppressed cancer cure, the very rich wouldn't necessarily know anymore about it than the very poor.  The government would be the ones experimenting on people with chemtrails if they are for real, and it isn't about who has the most money.  A large part of the evangelical church believes we are nearing the time of the great tribulation period, and that the anti-Christ  is a real person.  Now, in order to attack conspiracy theories, you are going so far as to join the world in mocking the church and the book of Revelation?  Why would any Bible believing Christian lift this video up, based on their attack of Revelation alone?

It doesn't attack Revelation; it just says the world won't end because of the Antichrist. And if you read Scripture, that's correct; The Lord is the one who brings human history to an end.

Face it: you're just upset because it kicks down CT's, and that's your thing Butero.

It doesn't do any such thing.  It is stupid, and it attacks Biblical prophecy.  It is doing more than saying the anti-Christ isn't the end of the world.  It is coming against the whole idea that there will be an anti-Christ and is attacking the Bible.  Face it, you are willing to sell out God and the Bible to try to win this argument.
