  1. I’m not a fan of the paleo diet but calling it a “conspiracy theory” is nothing but liberal cliche. This blog peddles more “conspiracy theory” than the paleo diet does.

      • The Paleo Diet sounded interesting, or at least harmless, at first. I’ve read other sources suggesting a “cave man”(they didn’t live in caves!) diet wouldn’t be a bad basis for nutrition, basically what was available to early humans hunting and foraging. So I assumed that’s what Paleo was. Then I found out nuts and potatoes were a no, no and did a double take.
        I’m pretty sure early humans ate whatever they could get their hands on. The no nuts thing was so arbitrary I didn’t bother perusing it.

        • Paleo is basically (like every other diet fad scam) a convoluted way of getting you to cut calories.

          The reason they have to cut out nuts (even though they did exist and WERE eaten in cavemen times) —- is because nuts are calorie dense.

          You can actually get obese on a diet of nuts. Its easy, they have a ton of calories, many of them are tasty, and its easy to eat a lot of them.

  2. Every news station knows that bad news will get you more viewers than good news will.

    Sometimes, people who use information as their primary product will not just highlight the bad news, but they will exaggerate it as well, doing so in varying degrees anywhere from slight embellishment to outright fabrication.

    This makes conspiracies fertile grounds for exploitation and exaggeration for people who just want to gain viewers or sell products.

    However, that does not mean that some or even several of them aren’t legitimate. If governments absolutely never conspired to do anything that would be harmful to their people, then everyone would be able to trust their government 100%, save for blunders…but anybody with eyes and ears knows that this is not the case.

    You present an example of a false conspiracy. However, it’s not hard to find ones that aren’t: just Google conspiracy theories that turned out to be true, and you will find them easily. So ‘conspiracy theory’ itself is not a scam; some of them are, some of them aren’t.

      I have been through these arguments a million times before. The “conspiracy theories that turned out to be true” never actually happened or were never conspiracy THEORIES before being outed.

      Also, you can’t separate conspiracy theories from each other. You conspiracy theorists have spent decades linking conspiracy theories together and defending every conspiracy theory out there regardless of how absurd or evil it is. You don’t get to come here now and say that some conspiracy theories are right and some are wrong. You don’t get to have it both ways.

      • It helps to make the distinction between the people inventing and pushing the conspiracies, and the people who but into them.

        The first group are almost without exception sleazy conmen making a buck.
        The second group can be naive, gullible, or simply misinformed, especially in the case of a well crafted hoax that fools even real scientists, like Andrew Wakefield’s claims vaccines caused autism.
