you ddint answer his question

you want to try again or nah?
I did answer his question, you just didn't understand my answer.

Politics is just pro wrestling.
Actors playing roles to make the public believe one thing or another.

"The Soviets" play the role of bad guy to the USs good guy role.
They are all in on in.

Some of the public can see through the pro wrestling act.
Some of the public, mostly small children and daft adults, believe it all to be real.

It's still real to you, dammit...

What do you mean?

Do you believe that the UK government overstated the threat of wmd's in Iraq to gain support for a war?

Yes, that's probable. Government misleads public to get support for a war is a pretty common activity. It's also a reasonable conspiracy to believe in because its possible and there is real evidence.

It also wasn't unreasonable for the public to believe they did have wmds until we found out more. Evil dictator builds weapon is also pretty probable and makes sense.

They are not comparable to the earth being flat or the world being run by lizard people. Those are less likely and have much less credible evidence.

To believe something like that you would want more evidence, and evidence of higher quality than you would for a more mundane and realistic belief.

um

wat?

therefore everything is true?

BTW.........Pars Today...........thats the official Iranian State Network :lol:


Your story leads with 'according to a CIA document' that is never produced or identified in any way................

So we have an iranian conspiracy theory explaining that the cia is running some sort of media op to keep people from discussing the flat earth?

Seems legit

How the actual fuck did you even FIND that 'source'?


Got to say though,their 'Call to Islam' heading is great..................exactly the sort of fact based stuff I expect from legit news sources
:rofl

Also, if they didn't go to the moon, how did they fake radio transmissions coming from the capsule.

Considering that every radio enthusiast on the planet was listening in and triangulating their position in space.

The US faked it, but the Russians never figured it out and never even made the accusation. For......... reasons? :conf

But these are questions that no conspiracy moron will ever answer, of course. You will NEVER see one of them walk you through his certain of events as though it really happened. Because as soon as you ask them to spell out how it worked in reality, the whole thing falls apart because they started on a foundation of "I WANT to believe it was all faked, so I'll just blindly go with that and never really examine whether what I'm saying actually makes any sense at all."

:hat

They never even posted this as a response.

Some of it is, some of it is just goofy shit that's not worth getting heated about... like Flat Earthers. Literally couldn't care about those people or the David Ike Lizard People types.

I have more of a problem with people who think school shootings are false flags or 9/11 was carried out by the US government, or all vaccines cause weapons grade autism or that the west is an irredeemable oppressive patriarchy.

Those seem more dangerous in general to me as people can be genuinely hurt and the spread of them is pervasive.

But there's a throwing the baby out of with the bathwater element here. We should be wary of casting out the nay-sayers and dissenters... sometimes, the truth isn't always as straightforward as it first seems.

You just linked to ANOTHER conspiracy site...............


Michel Chossudovsky (born 1946) is a Canadian economist, author and conspiracy theorist.[1][2] He is professor emeritus of economics at the University of Ottawa[3][4] and the president and director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), which runs the website globalresearch.ca, which multiple sources say is a publisher of conspiracy theories.[5][6][7][8] Chossudovsky has promoted such theories about 9/11.[9][10][13][14]

In 2017, the Centre for Research on Globalization was accused by information warfare specialists at NATO’s Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence (STRATCOM) of playing a key role in the spread of pro-Russian propaganda.[6] A report by the U.S. State Department in August 2020 accused the website of being a proxy for the Russian disinformation campaign

No.

None of them do.

Their review process is "Is this telling me exactly what I want to hear? Yes? Okay great, that's all I need or want."

That's the fucking problem. :patsch

That's why they are continually being caught out posting straight out lying garbage, while simultaneously crying about the "fake news" "lamestream media". :patsch

Look at wesshaw. He is convinced that the moon landings were faked.

What's his evidence?

He WANTS to believe it.

So he believes it.

Does he have any knowledge of the subject at all to justify going against mainstream consensus, or can he explain how it is even possible to fake a space voyage and moon landing?

Of course not! He can't even attempt to walk us through his version of "reality". Doesn't matter. He wants to believe that it was faked, so it was faked. :patsch
