    OK so how does that relate to the theory that the stuff coming out the back of modern aeroplanes is a chemical spraying experiment.
    Ok well we don't seem to be getting anywhere here. Would it please you if i changed my 2nd choice?

    How about False flags? Government recording of webcams? CIA control of media?

    Hey Drewski, you must have a favourite?
    I just have pity for those that do believe them.

    I understand where the beliefs come from, I get why they cling to them, why they place their faith in them. The theories are just another form of religion: people using ever stranger theories based on one or two fragments of knowledge from long ago in an attempt to shake off the feeling that the world is actually a chaotic place.

    Conspiracy theorists are people who want to believe there's more to it than pure chance so they can rationalise their own place in the world and i completely get that.


    It's all bolleaux, however.

    No, they're not. They're wikipedia publicised dross perpetuated by the clickbaiters who don't seem to be able to distinguish Science from some kind of chemtrail and homepathic induced fantasy world controlled by the rothchild-illuminati reptillian overlords.

    To laugh at those that believe in the ones that turned out to be true? Bit odd, no?

    Except as has already been pointed out to you, the examples you're using haven't been proven true at all.

    Now you're starting to sound like a conspiracy theorist. Mkultra never happened, Optic nerve never happened, Porton Down never sprayed zinc cadmium sulphide? You best get the tinfoil out, next you'll be telling us the moon landings never happened.

    Actually, spraying one's own citizens with various chemicals is not at all some fantastically unlikely conspiracy theory, it's happened in a number of countries. In the US, various government agencies tested toxic chemicals and even nerve gases on (guess where) black neighbourhoods. The US army dumped the same zinc cadmium sulphide on St Louis and were doing it as late as 1965.

    The CIA and the FBI conspired to mass-release crack cocaine into black communities in the US during the 80s as part of the programme to fund the Contras in Nicaragua using the proceeds of the drug revenues.
