      “Oh no, our narrative for control of people is being revealed”

      The virus is made in a lab. I can’t prove it is correct but you can’t prove it’s wrong. So let’s just chill on calling me and my fellow logical operators conspiratorial but because Trump made the idea popular. Because you don’t like the source doesn’t mean the idea is wrong. Just because the idea doesn’t feel nice doesn’t make it or the source wrong. It’s really important we get this right because the source matters if we want to prevent the next one and Anything’s possible until we rule it out. Prosecuting the wrong source is as bad as sentencing the wrong person to death.

    3. Tarik

      Obama commuted more crimes against humanity than trump. Prove me wrong.

      Beach heals.sorry.thats why wé all like beach and Feel better after à dip.

      Good video, but most of the jokes are not that funny. You did get me on that AT&T one, though. lol

    12. Yvette Galan

      I lost brain cells when I heard half of these conspiracy theories. rip

    13. horsemeattball

      Conspiracy theories exist because the explanations that are used to disprove them are just not convincing. There's no way IMO that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide. The man was on suicide watch for chrissake.

    14. Emma B. Weber

      wow they are actually born on the same day, thats surprising! I checked ;)

    15. sandeliz Nungar

      I would like to know your point of view on this big conspiracy theory character A Call For an Uprising 🤔

    16. mark pople

      As a neutral on the above matter... May I ask... Why is it that anything deemed to be a conspiracy and theory... Naturally played down and the people who make claims of these conspiracies...are made to look like whack jobs?...Guy Fawkes conspired to blow up the houses of Parliament...and the people who alerted the authorities and thwarted Guy Fawkes's plan...we're they "conspiracy theorists"?... It makes no difference to me but I have to say to dismiss and undermine conspiracy theorists as whack jobs only reeks of ignorance... In my in future shall we ignore every warning given to us 🤔

    17. ken oh

      The unbiased dinner proximately open because bonsai electrophysiologically punish round a chubby back. helpless, laughable bat

    18. JoJoKiwi

      People during early wake of COVID: Follow the rules, don't touch each other, STAY INDOORS! Same people: Protest for BLM 'during a pandemic' unless you racist. 'people went out in public by the thousands' So of course people are going to believe conspiracies.

    26. L M

      A crucial point rarely made is explaining the source and funding behind the conspiracies. If anything can help gullible people see that they''ve been fooled, that would be it.

        @Caleb Summers someone asked! Okay so Regean died after being shot Bush took over but they used a sophisticated puppet when they needed to show Regean. The health report on the president was after he was shot and recovered he added 2 inches to his chest working out...really? Also note that afterwards he develops the famous Regean ticks. And it isn't until after they have no more need of the puppet master that made this all happen that they killed Jim Henson and said he died of the flu.

    46. Feywildheart

      The quick way to tell if a conspiracy is false: Does it affect the people who are supposedly controlling it? Boris Johnson and Donald Trump going into hospital with coronavirus? Unlikely it was organised by big western governments.

      Officials now say positive cases are 90% false and most that died and were marked as covid deaths didn't actually die of covid. Who's the nut case now?

      1. This channel does not exist.

        Actually officials say the real covid deaths could be twice as high as they are thought to be.

      2. Stitches 76

        Could you give a source please? As much as I'd love for people to not die from COVID - that sounds more than a little far-fetched

      Another thing John left out is that believing in a conspiracy creates a feel good sensation that *you know something others don't* or that you're in into *a secret*. It's another reason why it can be so hard for people who believe in one to "get out". But the biggest challenge is that zero out of ten people like to admit they're wrong or believed in a lie, doubly so because they turn the belief into part of their own self, so to speak, so, to them, attacking the theory is a personal attack.
