    cons + piracy

    add a dash of theory....

    and you have conspiracy theory...or do you?

    if you read the definition of the phrase, you could call christianity a conspiracy theory....or islam....or britney spears...

    i tried to find the history or root of the word and could not, would be interested to find out the root of conspiracy. i find it humorous that you can split the word up into two words than are similar in nature.

    It comes from the Latin meaning to BREATH together

    i almost always ask for a cite, no offense intended

    your own link though details how it is not just "breathe" which you not only highlighted, you capitalized. as if that was the one and only root....meaning

    to agree, unite, plot

    that is from your link....why did you exclude that in your first response? because that is what the word also means now.
