Alien conspiracies have no basis in fact. I have read numerous books about the subject. There is no evidence or proof of such a thing. The internet is full of such things from anonymous sources and people should believe none of it. Various people have been writing about secret/hidden/forbidden knowledge for a very long time. It would take several pages for me to describe the various books and other inventions of men. Some claim the internet contains a lot of knowledge, but it also contains a lot of unsubstantiated nonsense. Youtube videos, unless associated with real people with real credentials, are just a waste of time. I’ve seen a few, and it’s the same old formula.
The claim that we are smarter and know more than those living just a decade or so before us is not true regarding conspiracies involving aliens. Only a few people with the credentials to study some things, like alien abductions, have found nothing conclusive. One professional described such people as “experiencers,” meaning they believed something happened to them but there is no evidence that it actually did.
And I could provide a list of people who have been heralded as the new Christ in the world, or others who claim to know things that really don’t make sense. In our modern times, there are those who accept that crystals, stones and “real” magic spells can affect their lives and the lives of others. Some of it is quite elaborate. “Real” astrology is very elaborate. After seeing one of these books, all I can say is that the stars have no proven effect on anybody, but there are people who will go to “psychic readers” and pay $50 for a lot of well-crafted nonsense.
Conspiracy theorist is a negative term that should never be used in a “they’re all like that” capacity. There are conspiracies. Some have been revealed to be true. Some were denied but when enough documents and other evidence were produced, the truth came out. There are those who are entranced by well told but fictional stories. As a person who does actual investigative work, I need some facts, even a handful. I need some evidence, even if it’s only a little. To throw everyone into the category of conspiracy theorist is not separating investigators from those who read a book, and/or saw a few videos and decided, “Yep. It’s gotta be true.” Multiple sources need to be checked out. There’s a process to weed out fiction from fact. But, if you meet or know a person who is obsessed with some “conspiracy,” just ask a few questions. “How do you know this is true? Is there any evidence? How did you find out about this?” Those questions might lead to a pleasant conversation or an angry one. The angry ones usually mean that the other person has not done his homework and is upset because you don’t find his reasons or reasoning credible.
