Discussion in 'Conspiracy Theories' started by JimBowie1958, Oct 20, 2011.
Which of the following conspiracy theories are erroneous or fraudulent?
The term 'fraudulent conspiracy theory' is usually an oxymoron.
Some times it is redundent.
By it's very nature a theory can never be fraudulent. It's just a theory.
It could be fraudulent if the person proposing the theory has undisclosed information that the theory is false.
So would you say the ide athat the Mafia conspires is absurd? There was a time mention of the Mafia was dismissed with scorn as many do today regarding the Bilderbergs.
I think conspiracy exists far more than you care to consider.
So conspiracies are not theoretical? Now I am getting all confused.
We could go round and round with this thread. "Undisclosed information" is what is and and the theory is not false until the information is disclosed and proved. A theory by it's nature can never be fraudulent while it is still a theory. If the theory has been proven right it becomes fact. If it has been proven wrong it is no longer a theory.
Bayes' theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
All a conspiracy is is a group of people who network for a common cause, but that cause is illegal or illicit. Jacees, Elks, Boy Scouts, typical college frats, etc are networks for a cause. Columbian drug cartels, foreign intelligence networks, networks of smugglers safehouses/tunnels/forgers, etc are conspiracies.
Our courts prove criminal conspiracies all the time, so no, not all of them are merely theoretical.
That help you much?
