Why are the Religious More Prone to Conspiracy Theories

Chat GPT:

There are a few potential reasons why some religious individuals might be more susceptible to conspiracy theories:

1. Epistemological framework:
Religions often involve accepting beliefs based on faith, without empirical evidence. This acceptance of non-empirical claims may make some religious individuals more receptive to conspiracy theories, which also rely on disregarding mainstream evidence in favour of alternative explanations.

2. Perceived external threats:
Some religious communities may perceive their beliefs and values as being under attack or threatened by external forces. This sense of threat can make individuals more inclined to accept conspiratorial narratives that offer a sense of control or protection against these perceived threats.

3. Group identity and conformity:
Religious communities often prioritize shared beliefs and values, emphasizing group cohesion and conformity. This can create an environment where accepting conspiracy theories becomes more likely, as they can provide a shared narrative that reinforces the group's worldview and fosters a sense of belonging.

4. Information sources and social networks:
Religious communities may have their own specific media sources, such as religious television channels, websites, or publications. These sources may present information with a particular bias or offer conspiracy-related content that aligns with their audience's existing beliefs.

Regarding fact-checking, it is a common human tendency for people to be selective in their fact-checking efforts, regardless of their religious beliefs. Confirmation bias and motivated reasoning can affect people across different religious and non-religious groups, leading them to seek out information that confirms their preexisting beliefs rather than critically evaluating all available evidence.

So let's see what conspiracies have been proven to be conspiracy theories. 

Study after study and now Fauci himself say masks don't work

The CDC now Admits the vaxx neither stop one getting Covid or stop one passing it on.

Evidence now proves the jabs are not safe. Mountains of evidence

We believe God created the Heavens and earth dumb atheists think the universe created itself out of nothing. 

Science has proven man made climate change to be a hoax

We know Globalists exist morons like sharktwit thing Globalism is a conspiracy theory. 

We know who instigated the Ukraine war. Dumbasses like Sharktwit only consider the war beginning when Russian troops marched into Ukraine. The mampara understands nothing more than that.

We understand trans ideology to be wrong. The mutilation of children and their sterilization to be a great evil. Sharktwut thinks it's healtcare

We know that sbutting down farms poses a huge danger to humanity. Sharktwit think it's a great move to save the planet!

Dumbass Sharktwit thought Trump colluded with Russia. We knew it was a Lie and so it has been proven. 

We knew J6 was a stich up and again we are being proven correct. 

The fact is we so called conspiracy theorist have been proven right time and again. 

In fact ou sharktwit representing the Atheists and Satanists has been wrong just about every time. Bwahahahahahahahaha.

Only sharktwit totallack of self awareness allows him to continue posting here. A normal person would be too embarrassed. 

Sharktwit is now the biggest buffoon on the board. Old Blobbie is making a challenge in this regard but can't quite match Sharktwit for driviling lunacy. Doubtless he will keep trying.

The ignorant and sensationalist articles that Baboon-ou laps up on his silly little websites and then regurgitates on here are not really conspiracy theories. That would be an insult to conspiracy theories.

It's just a never-ending stream of utter garbage written by twisted, biased and ignorant idiots driven by their own narrow-minded agendas . . . the kind of stuff that only very stupid and very gullible people could possibly believe.

We all know that Baboon-ou is very stupid and very gullible so let's not dignify the garbage that he spews with the label conspiracy theory . . . rather just call it what it is . . . the rantings of a brainwashed fool.

May 24, 2023, 10:52


You talk about conspiracy theories  and say religious people are more believing in conspiracy theories - while the conspiracy theories over the last decade came from the leftist media that you  ignorant and brainwashed idiots believe in.    All you believe in is conspiracies and your new religion is global warming.     

The Russian Hoax was not even a conspiracy theory since it was based entirely on lies concocted by  the Obama Administration and the DNC with especially Clinton being involved.   You even believe that BS concoction. 

When the propaganda media tells you anything you believe it totally.   You cannot think for yourself at all - so what do you believe is in fact conspiracy theories.

Putin created Covid to weaken the world before starting war in Europe again.

See how easy it is to create conspiracy theories. 

May 24, 2023, 11:23


"A self-proclaimed “saint” was arrested in a coastal Florida town Sunday after screaming obscenities and threatening to unleash an army of turtles, an arrest affidavit reportedly said."

May 24, 2023, 11:30

"The Russian Hoax was not even a conspiracy theory"

Ou Maaik, you're going to have to be a bit more specific here because there are two potential Russian hoaxes.

1. The Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election which is now accepted as fact following the Mueller investigation and is only disputed by people who are either very stupid or never bothered to actually read the findings of the Mueller Report.

2. That Russia were the good guys when they invaded Ukraine.

Which one are you referring to?

May 24, 2023, 13:43

It's no surprise that anyone that swallows Christianity i( or any other religion) s out of touch with reality so no surprise those that swallow that will swallow any other piece of insanity.

Since I joined this forum I have lost all hope for humanity, we are fighting a losing cause and unfortunately  it is going to my kids and grandkids that will pay the price for humanities ignorance.

I can only hope I am not around to see it.

May 24, 2023, 14:39

There's nothing wrong with "Crazies" if their beliefs and actions don't impact other peoples beliefs and freedoms negatively. Anyone forcing Christianity or any other religion or religious practices on anyone else should not be tolerated, but we should be afforded the same courtesies...

May 24, 2023, 15:07


 Mueller found fokol proof of any Russian Collusion in the 2016 election.   His report said he could find no proof of that  and then made an allegation that there was some interference favoring Trump to please his Democratic Party Masters - no proof of that anyway.

It was after a Special Council was appointed to investigate the origins of the allegations of Russian Collusion in 2016 that it was found the allegations originated from lies concocted by the Democrats.    That part was clearly illustrated and the role of the FBI to assist in spreading lies was found to play a major role in spreading lies by the media on the score.    And you believed every word of the lies spread through the media - one would call that idiocy and non-thinking  by an idiot.

As to the Russian Invasion it could have been prevented through implementation of the Misnsk agreement and nobody believe it was justified.  What was wrong was that the USA sabotaged all efforts to solve the issue peacefully and the corruption associated with  politicians of both parties in the USA is sickening.    I still support a negotiated settlement through negotiations.   That is not a conspiracy theory - it is the truth, but brainwashed idiots like you believe the media  conspiracy theories all out.



May 24, 2023, 15:12


Not to worry - you are a person that support destruction of Democracy as a system.   I believe that what you support at present has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with absolute control of human beings by despotic governance - just go and read the WEF website and their objectives and you may get some idea about what is happening.       

May 24, 2023, 15:42

I presume you mean CF.

You are completely  wrong I support democracy 100%.

People are free to believe what they want. If tomorrow Christians were persecuted for their belief I would stand arm and arm with with you, even wack jobs like beenshit and his ilk.

The problem I have is when the religious start enforcing their beliefs on me or followers of other religions.

The likes of Dradd is of a similar belief and I have no issue with him.

It's the jihadists like beenshit who rant and rave against people and trying to enforce their beliefs into law that I will fight with my last breath.

Believe me if they made being gay mandatory I would fight them as hard as the religious zealots..

Yes I admit I go overboard at pointing out the contradictions and outright insane claims in the Bible and I know I should be a better man as I am not really helping believers see these things, just the way I am wired I guess.

Why can't  we just let people get on with how they want to live their lives as long as they let everyone else have the same freedom of choice.

Instead we get so many people trying to enforce their beliefs whether they are of a religious nature or some woke leftist moron.

I will never bow to beenshits insanity just as I will never bow down to this madness of differnt gender/no gender/madness that is overwhelming the world.

If everyone just left alone and didn't get butt hurt at any differnt belief the world would be a better place.

As Gervais said, your offend by that statement so what thats not an argument. You offence means nothing to me fuck off (I added that bit)

I have lost count of the people I have offended with an opinion and still don't  give a shit. Just like people have offended me but water off a ducks back everyone is entitled to their opinion even beenshit.

Unlike what you may believe I am not a religious fanatic - I pleaded a number of times to keep religion off this Board.   I think it is a topic that cause division and lead to fanatism - which I condemn in all forms.   I know there are people that blame everything  wrong in the world on religion and that includes brainwashed idiots like SB. 

As a liberal I do believe in freedom of people to think for themselves and that being  the case nobody should try and force people to think differently.      For instance I think this thread was BS - problems in the world are caused by people and not by anybody or anything else. 

If I offended you I apologize.



May 24, 2023, 19:44

Man I keep thinking I have heard it all on this board then along comes ou Rooitwit. This complete buffoon still believes the Russia Hoax. 

Hahahahahahahaha. What an utter and complete mampara!

Old crust is as confused as ever. He live in an upside down world down under. A complete mong. 

He says he will never bow down to Beeno's insanity but like me is against trans BS. Bwahahahahaha. 

He thinks my calling out the perversions of the left is being jihadist. Man what a confused plonker. 

But he is only a kiwi so we cut him some slack. 

May 24, 2023, 19:56

Ou Maaik, you are a very stupid and very brainwashed person.

My response to you is to put up some quotes from the Mueller report . . . . something you've quite obviously never read but just satisfied yourself with Sean Hannity's version of what it said.

"The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion. Evidence of Russian government operations began to surface in mid-2016. In June, the Democratic National Committee and its cyber response team publicly announced that Russian hackers had compromised its computer network. Releases of hacked materials—hacks that public reporting soon attributed to the Russian government—began that same month. Additional releases followed in July through the organization WikiLeaks, with further releases in October and November."

"At the same time that the IRA operation began to focus on supporting candidate Trump in early 2016, the Russian government employed a second form of interference: cyber intrusions (hacking) and releases of hacked materials damaging to the Clinton Campaign. The Russian intelligence service known as the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Army (GRU) carried out these operations."

"The presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump (“Trump Campaign” or “Campaign”) showed interest in WikiLeaks’s releases of documents and welcomed their potential to damage candidate Clinton."

"Immediately after the November 8 election, Russian government officials and prominent Russian businessmen began trying to make inroads into the new administration. The most senior levels of the Russian government encouraged these efforts. The Russian Embassy made contact hours after the election to congratulate the President-Elect and to arrange a call with President Putin. Several Russian businessmen picked up the effort from there."

"The investigation did not always yield admissible information or testimony, or a complete picture of the activities undertaken by subjects of the investigation. Some individuals invoked their Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination and were not, in the Office’s judgment, appropriate candidates for grants of immunity. The Office limited its pursuit of other witnesses and information—such as information known to attorneys or individuals claiming to be members of the media—in light of internal Department of Justice policies. See, e.g., Justice Manual §§ 9-13.400, 13.410. Some of the information obtained via court process, moreover, was presumptively covered by legal privilege and was screened from investigators by a filter (or “taint”) team. Even when individuals testified or agreed to be interviewed, they sometimes provided information that was false or incomplete, leading to some of the false-statements charges described above. And the Office faced practical limits on its ability to access relevant evidence as well—numerous witnesses and subjects lived abroad, and documents were held outside the United States."

"Further, the Office learned that some of the individuals we interviewed or whose conduct we investigated—including some associated with the Trump Campaign—deleted relevant communications or communicated during the relevant period using applications that feature encryption or that do not provide for long-term retention of data or communications records. In such cases, the Office was not able to corroborate witness statements through comparison to contemporaneous communications or fully question witnesses about statements that appeared inconsistent with other known facts."

There is nothing I have posted above which isn't a direct quote from the actual Mueller report. Bear in mind that what that report divulges is what Trumps's hand-picked Attorney General Bill Barr deemed fit to release - after heavy White House redaction - and the full and unredacted report is yet to be released to the public.

If you disagree or dispute any of the above then state exactly what you disagree with and what you think I'm making up.

Russian interference does not equates to the Trump campaign colluding with Russia to illegally interfere with the US election process...and none of the crap you posted is an actual crime or election tampering or in any way justification for spying on the Trump campaign...they impeded a duly elected president for almost his whole term, based on snot they cooked up themselves...it's a disgrace that the FBI and the Justice department was weaponised in this way, but fools like you can't see it and justify it just because you hate the man...8 years of this sh!t and no actual proof...biggest media character assassination attempt in modern history...and actuality the real election meddling...he attracts this much flack,  he must be doing something right...but you lot prefer the sniffer...go figure.

The extremistic religious verbosity's really old hat ............. what continues to baffle me though

is the fact that they're ALL avid supporters of the evil autocratic Putin, a war criminal, now on the ten most wanted list. What an ungodly pursuit.

Sies to 'em all.

The question is cyber attacks - there was none.   People from Russia spent $41 000  on pro-Trump adverts in the internet platforms in 2016.   That is a meaningless amount when it came to normal election expenditure which between the normal election advertising of election is concerned,    That does not mean that there was evidence of COLLUSION between Trump and Putin.   

The outcome in the Mueller Report meant nothing - if it does it would have led to IMPEACHMENT procedures against Trump by the Demcorats - there was FOKOL proof of such collusion at all.   The fact is that their was proof exposed by the Durham Special Council that indicates that the Collusion stories was a concoction started by the Clinton Campaign and Obama knew it was based on lies concocted by the DEMOCRATS and he and his Administration knew it was lies and they went along with it.   The crooks involved were in the CIA, the FBI and especially the Justice Department.

By the way that hero of yours are going to have a hard time and may be botted out of the House as a liar.   But the  Democrats will support him all out since they are liars as well.

One can only wonder what the media hysteria abut Russian Collusion had on relationship between the USA and Russia - hate stirring was largely the reason why the relationship broke down totally when the corrupt Biden took over the Presidency in 2019.    Biden was part of the Russian Hate campaign in the USA media and the effect of which give Putin reason not to TRUST the Corrupt Criminal in the WH.      

 You refer to alleged hacking of the DP Computer system.   That was a lie as well.   The DNC as part of the lie campaign asked Crowdstrike owned by a Ukrainian national to investigate the alleged hacking of the DNC computer.    The lie was advertised by the DNC - but the owner of Crowdstrike denied in writing in 2017 that there was proof of hacking.    The matter was never reported to the FBI and the fact is it was another part of the lies used by the DNC to tie Russia to involvement in the USA election.    Your quote is not an finding it was conjecture to justify an investigation that was based on lies.          

The poisonous relationship between the USA and Russia stemmed from years of lies in the USA and the fact that when Biden - who changed into shit everything he touched - has blamed his failures on Russia.

Was the question asked to an AI. And what question.

The whole thing relies on the acception that religious people are more inclined to conspiracy theory when the theory was crafted to address problems in liberal societies.

It may be hard to distinguish the inclination from being caused by liberalism or religion.

Christian liberals are liberal, and liberals are quite open to conspiracy theories.

The number of liberals who believe in conspiration as depicted by the theory is greater than the number of liberal religious people who believe in conspiracy.

May 25, 2023, 06:10

We know Globalists exist morons like sharktwit thing Globalism is a conspiracy theory.

Christians are globalist.

Globalists fighting globalists over the benefit of globalization.

Same thing as criminal gangs fighting over drug trafficking.

Liberals and the criminal world have a lot in common.

Study after study and now Fauci himself say masks don't work

Those days are strange.

The covid period is two years ago or somewhat and yet liberals ensure it must be erased, forgotten.

Chronology of events:

Covid happened.

Liberal societies discovered themselves weak, vulnerable. An existential threat for people who trade docility for security, their way of life was compromized.

In order to mitigate the effects of the pandemia, people were handed down easy instructions they failed to apply.

The tale over the mask entered the stage at this moment: in order to reensure liberals, scientists tossed away their knowledge about the mask efficiency and introduced them as a means of protection.

Liberal societies were in panic, they were vulnerable and the thought of being unable to protect themselves were a slower but steady killer.

So masks were painted as efficient beyong their range.

A psychological effect.

Mob's rule: the mob went to see theirs priests, theirs priests provided them with instructions the mob could not follow. The priests had to do something, science was compromized.


Now if one notes that liberal societies are largely dominated by white people, that white people have spoken a lot about their presumed virtues and other people's defects, it may be understood how liberals prefered to rely on the perception of a conspiracy theory.

Way more flattering than following the chronology of events and its conclusion.
