    My definition...any explanation for an event that is reached through supposition or deduction but without concrete evidence or proof.

    Not really. The conspiracy theories that are the MOST prevalent are folks simply CREATING alternate explanations for events that have been THOROUGHLY investigated. And in most instances have INCONTROVERTABLE proof that the conspiracy theorist merely ignore or overlook.. It's more often a Parallel universe of innuendo, guestimation, and weakly related correlations that USUALLY LEAD BACK to the same notorious villains. Like the CIA or Jews or Bilderburgers, CFR, Illuminati.

    In FACT -- if you see those last 3 mentioned, you're on thin ice.

    That SAID --- the govt itself CREATES conspiracies, by hiding or classifying evidence that doesn't apparently NEED hiding or classification. And it FEEDS conspiracy theories by not COUNTERING them and smashing them to bits when they start. So I ADMIT -- sometimes it appears that details are hidden for no good reason. But there probably IS a good reason..

    Depends on how much faith you have in the people paid to hide stuff and classify it.

    I've heard that believing there's really any mods around is a bunch of Oscar Meyer.
