Aliens are definitely real.
I bounce around on this one. I believe if the universe is infinite then "life" exists out there but I can't quite wrap my head into the idea that aliens are little green men in silver saucers that we have never really seen but kind of have. Then again, are we the aliens?

The #1 conspiracy theory the last 2 months hands down and one of the worst ever: Trump really won the 2020 election because it was rigged against him. There has been absolutely no proof of this and yet tens of million Americans still believe this like it’s real.

Yep, 0 evidence of anything provided to one court in this country, but it's still real to them anyway.

Seeing is believing. Now I havent seen little green men but I have seen an anomaly in the sky that is unexplainable with current knowledge we have about human technology.

Current knowledge is the key phase. They don't tell us everything. I've been trying to tell you this man! ?

Well they cant drop something as significant as that without disrupting the fabric of society on a global scale. That's a bit different than some of these smaller scale theories.
Same could be said abut 9/11, at least domestically, if you happen to believe that one.

It wouldn't surprise me if most of the UFO sightings are some sort of spy vessel whether they are domestic or from other countries.

Thanks for starting this thread. Now, I'd like @Rain Cold to share his thoughts on the Nashville bombing. Why should we not trust the "official" narrative?

I'm not suggesting that should always trust the official narrative. But I want to know specifically why in this case.

From where I sit, it seems to me that we have a serious problem with conspiracy theories in our society. The Nashville bombing is a perfect example. People from every side of the ideological/political divide seem to have some kind of theory that differs from the official narrative. This is becoming the norm for seemingly everything that happens.

When a person lives in a world where everything is a conspiracy, that puts that person in the position of determining that which is true or false. This is a very dangerous place to be.

What is the official narrative?

It is very possible that even the #1 spreader of this, Trump himself, doesn’t really believe it (and he very well may never have fully believed it). This is so bad that numerous Trump/Pence signs are still on lawns as if the election weren’t finalized! I still see quite a few in my neighborhood in contrast to not seeing even the first Biden/Harris sign remaining up since just after the election. Some of the believers include highly intelligent/knowledgeable folks like docs and lawyers! I know some of them.

In case anyone is wondering, I’m not a Democrat and am right of center.

This leads to this question: Is the average intelligence level of believers in conspiracy theories in general any lower than that of nonbelievers?

So I just did a brief search and I guess I am living a sheltered life these days, haha had no idea 5G was connected to the spread of COVID.... wut??!!

And is this thread going to turn into another political thread? Seems to be headed that way

In most of Europe the 5G roll out coincided with the CV lock downs. The installers were putting up 5G antennas while everyone was stuck in their flats watching them do it - really caused a psychosis.
