a thought:

conservatives believe in conspiracy because they accept that there MUST be smart people somewhere

liberals reject conspiracy because they reject the idea that anyone is smarter than they are

I KNOW There are people who are Smarter than me with Access to goverment officials and i KNOW they are out to make money. If that means "Conspiracy' then So be it.

They dont have to be smarter than me to have the ear of a Senators Aid, they just have to have access. Dumb but beautiful women have brought more than one good man down.

My definition, proven so far, is that a conspiracy theorist is somebody who believes something MUST be true even if it is only theoretically within the realm of possibility of being true.

I think of that as confounding possibility with probability

just because something mignt be possible does not make it probable

like an ad hom argument, the conspiracy nut comment is meant to degrade someone's argument indirectly... the CN argument is rarely founded in truth
