What do you have against conspiracy theories? Is it your theory that there is no such thing as a conspiracy?

Essentially conspiracy simply means people talking together to accomplish some purpose. Do you imagine that people never talk to each other?

golem: I don't have anything against conspiracy theories. Where did you get that? I explained them but didn't make a judgment.

Quoting:So, what qualifies as a conspiracy theory?

If someone claims that people work in secret to obtain some negative goal but cannot supply empirical evidence, then you have a conspiracy theory. You can easily identify one because they have a "they or them" in the treatise. As they say, that's what makes a good conspiracy theory.
