Why is there a bunch of morons who believe in crazy conspiracy theories?

Every time I go on TikTok, there’s always a video about shape shifting reptilians, etc.... Not only that, but they have like tens of thousands of likes. Is the average person in this world an idiot? There’s no proof, they’re just theorizing too. And the videos they show is unreal, or entertainment videos made for people who believe in this stuff.

    'Cos so-called "conspiracy theories" have to start somewhere, have ya never thought about it from that angle? While these conspiracy theories might not be entirely true, has it never occurred to ya that there could be at least some bent or exaggerated truth in them, somewhere along the line? 'Cos there bloody well could be!

    That is so true. It's amazing how many people believe in Flat Earth, Ghosts, Demons, Manned moon mission was a hoax, Face on Mars, Buildings on Mars, Shape shifting beings, Time travel, Alien abductions, and a million other silly things. 

    It might help if schools would teach more science and logical thinking.

    Lies that tell you that YOU are doing great and it's everyone ELSE that are wrong are easier and more comfortable than the painful truths that await us here in reality.

    Humans are imperfect creatures, and some have a lot of anger and need to blame someone, because they cannot accept that the fault is on them.  This is the main problem with a social creature like humans: we hate the other because the other takes what we want and need.  If we don't have what we want and need, then the easiest explanation is that someone ("they") took it.  Well, sadly, lots of people want and need and thus there is always some unknown "they" who they need to find and blame.  And of course, once they have someone to blame, it is a short step to trying to wipe them out so we can have what we claim "they" took.

    It is a major fault with the human species.  It takes a lot of work for a person to stand against that internal drive to blame others.  Lots of people fail, if they even try.

    These people own guns, and that scares the hell out of me. The fact that the people sworn to serve and protect will turn their backs on us in a crisis scares me more.
