I will slightly disagree with that. While I don't find it amusing when person y suffers because of person x believing in a CT, I think the most hilarious CT is so because its adherents keep harming themselves (legally) because of their asinine CT.

In other words, I vote for FOTL.

HAARP causes earthquakes halfway around the world. That one has so much wrong in it.

I also get the most enjoyment out of the FOTL type stuff. The extent that these people go to try to sound smart or to use legal terminology is comical. I remember some cartoon character from when I was a kid who was an owl who kind of acted smart and tried to look smart and all the other characters looked up to him, but he was just kind of making things up as he went along. That's the scene that comes to mind when I watch videos from people such as Robert Menard where they are addressing a crowd of people, taking questions and so on. He's just making up nonsense but everyone thinks he's the smartest person in the room.

While that is all true, for me, I have to admit, it is pure schadenfreude watching the idiots put FOTL in action

As far as conspiracy theories go, I'm convinced that the Weather Channel and Home Depot are in league together. Every time a tiny cloud shows up in the Atlantic, the Weather Channel claims the most devastating hurricane of our time is headed directly for us (paraphrased). The green and yellow pixels get bigger and bigger, and the projected path is always a straight line to the city I live in. Next thing you know, the Home Depot is sold out of bottled water, duct tape, generators, and plywood. Then suddenly, the storm shifts directions and goes out to sea and it barely rains.

That happens at least 4 times a year in Florida. [/conspiracy]

A giant hologram of a project called project blue beam where the U.S government is using HAARP to transmit the return of Jesus christ the virgin mary or a devastating attack by UFO's so they would bring the people of the world to its knees in a secret effort of world domination.

One such group who promote this idea is a group called True Forced Loneliness group who basically stays on Youtube. They also believe in the NWO and they believe that some women are conspiring with the conspirators to keep the men out of line as the name true forced loneliness. They have a general background of misogyny in their view including anti-semitism.

The one who has a prime example of their own group is a guy named RavenGaigeSmith on youtube. He is also a TFL he is off of youtube,but you can find his videos on youtube some a topic other is hate speech. there is a link on the bottom.

Some CTer's don't understand the motivations of skeptics to debunk their far out fantasies. Belief that the CIA killed Kennedy or we didn't land on the moon is pretty harmless...HOWEVER belief in FOTL can get you in a lot of trouble if you exercise these beliefs. Fines, loss of cars or homes. I personally don't think that's funny at all...and why I think we should be diligent to show how wrong these beliefs are.

This is such a hard question, since so many conspiracies are so hilariously entertaining. As it hasn't yet been mentioned, I must put in a vote for the hollow earth, as its startling idiocy fills me with glee.

Maybe it's easier to approach the question by excluding conspiracies which are unremittingly dreadful however clownish their proponents try to act: Holocaust denial and antivaxxers, for example.

Truthers and chemtrailers are so incredibly angry they are no fun to talk to. The latter also has the problem of being completely insane. There is no logical debate with them.

I know a lot of people have fun with JFK theories, UFOs, ghost sightings, ESP, cryptozoology, and the like, but my preferences are towards things that have at least a little bit of technical "meat" to them.

Climate Change Deniers are only mildly interesting to talk to, as they are major goal-post shifters and are always trying to pull the "but that was last month's argument" on you. Creationists are great fun; their knowledge of science ranges from unbelievably bad to almost-good-enough to fool a college student. If you shop around on them, you can almost always find one that is a good contest.

And, yes, the Creationists do manage to come up with some of the most knee-slappingly funny ideas ever. T. Rex gnawing into a coconut. The first elephant to evolve searching in vain for the first FEMALE elephant. And let's not even get started on the Ark. The main problem with Creationists is they have no shame. They will lie, outright lie. Even when you catch one at it and make him admit it, he'll just move to another forum and repeat the same lie to a fresh batch of suckers.

So, for the best value of your entertainment dollar, I nominate the Apollo Hoax. Sure, the silly situations aren't quite as belly-laugh stupid (Polar orbits, say. Or rockets that melt because there is no conduction in space). But there is plenty of fun science to get your teeth into. Plus, out of all the wild conspiracy theories out there, only the Apollo Hoax crowd has consistently staged themselves into trying to argue their case from a scientific and technical basis (instead of delving into the murk of motivations and politics and meaningful stares, where entire nations could be hidden).

I have to say I have a special love for any theory or claim or argument that goes so far wrong it begins to approach right from the other side. The sort of thing where you actually stop and say, "You know, it might actually be possible.....no, that's stupid!"

For some reason my favorite showed up once at Godlike Productions, at about the time it was discovered Iran was trying to get their hands on gas-separation centrifuges for their nuclear weapons program. According to the GLP poster, these centrifuges would be used to create uranium 238 by spinning lighter elements really fast.

And you stop for a moment and say "Well, yeah, if you could operate them at .99999 C, and if there was any way to USE the massive product without slowing it down again..." But then you realize you haven't changed the atomic number -- all you've got are some really, really (relativistically) heavy lithium atoms, and not a nice heavy element with an unstable nuclei.

Of course, given the near-light-speed centrifuge capable of handling KILOGRAMS of material, I'm sure you could come up with some dandy weapons applications for the thing!

Leaving aside the fact that it is not a conspiracy theory because no one believes it, in what way do you find it funny or entertaining?

The Big Pharma ones are dangerous, and not particularly funny, but most CTs are very funny.

If I had to pick the funniest ones, it would be Judy Wood's 9/11 space beams second, and this one first:

Especially when the population of the world is growing exponentially.
Not to mention the eeevil vaccines!!11

No, that one was just in poor taste. I'm not amused by people who turn real tragedies into meaningless hobbies. Now Illuminati/Mason/Jews Rule the World CT'ers those exist to be pointed and laughed at.

I'm not sure if I am missing the point of that or what? I certainly agree that you have to be careful when dealing with cops because you never know who the incompetant psychos are. Best to always try to be courteous.

The videos I was talking about though are the ones where it is from a seminar or something where someone (could be anyone really but Menard is a good example) is addressing a crowd or doing a Q&A with a crowd. I've watched loads of them and find them to be higly entertaining.

The thing that always amazes me about the freeman stuff is that the legal system is entirely of human construction (unlike Aliens, bigfoot, ghosts, etc.) and is entirely based on publicly available information (unlike 9/11, JFK, illuminati, etc.) yet people still manage to convince others that there is some conspiracy there. I mean in a way the system has evolved and been designed to prevent the possibility of secret conspiracies. The only thing that gives it enough obfuscation to allow conspiracies is that it is too complicated for some people to understand.

For me it's the pop culture ones.

Like this Simpsons episode in 1997 that predicted the 9/11 attacks.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pwhFKRhrHM


Or going further

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CZD34t9RQQ

I'm not sure whats funnier that people search through the Matrix to find out Neo's driving licence expired on 09 Sept 01, but they then come with some rational as to why the illuminate do this, which is usually "they're laughing at us".

^^ well it's sad NOW. Thanks for that.

Remember that satanic cult scare back in the 80s or so? Everyone thought there was some covert satanic Illuminati-type thing that was abducting kids and making them sacrifice rabbits or whatever.

So weird what people are willing to accept.

I have to go with FOTL. FOTLers keep getting proved wrong yet they keep declaring victory. They can't even admit that even if they are right, that the PTB is just going to get a lot of guns against them making anything they could be right about incredibly moot.

Just ask them what they would do with someone who withdrew consent in their freeman community.
They always end up saying that the individual has a choice to toe the line or leave.
However they fail to accept the same argument when its flipped back at them.

Yup..its FMOTL for me too......daftest ever conspiracy theory (and dangerous as well)

Recently ran into a couple of CT who "questioned" (CT code for doubting something without needing actual facts) the recent Japanese Tsunami/Earthquake. Apparently it was a cover up for the Mossad's pocket nuke strike on the power plant, in retaliation for Japan's intent to sell nuclear power technology to Iran.

Personally, I find nothing humorous about shape-shifting reptoids because I am one (at least that's what my title line tells me), and I know I'm not funny. I do, however, get lots of LOLs any time I read something David Icke has to say!

It may not be the funniest, but the bar-codes-on-the-backs-of-U.S.-road-signs-are-part-of-the-U.N.-invasion-plans is worth an honorable mention.

Zoinks. ^^That's a new one to me! Bar codes, huh? So I'm guessing Google Streetview will be unavailable during the invasion?

IIRC, the militia nuts' claim was when the NWO armies invaded they would of course drive on the wrong side of the road (like all foreigners) and would need the magic bar code info to keep from getting lost!

While a total scam, I particularly enjoyed the RFID Tags for US Armed Forces personnel that got it's brief moment in the sun from Alex Jones.

I'm with the vote for Icke's Jewish Shape Shifting Lizard Overlords.

Oh yes. I forgot about this. Our old buddy Unsecured Coins hoaxing Alex Jones was hilarious.

So am I the only one who picked a government sponsored CT?
What other government sponsored/diseminated CTs have you all come across?
