      @Michał Balcerzak I dont this video was to break down conspiracy theories, just the idiotic ones. I think they made it to cut down on the ill informed from spreading these 'theories'. But after reading some of the 'serious' comments I see they failed.

    This is superb! Love it! I've just started a conspiracy theory debunking channel (one vid down lol!). Unfortunately, you can't reason with a conspiracy theorist as they don't understand reason and critical thinking. My approach is to provide evidence and a light dusting of ridicule.

    Islamic invasion would definitely effect the rich, as a new empire brings it's own elites.
    Rich people likely wouldn't like to pay an extra fee to their local mosque to placate the jihadis, so there's also a fiscal threat, not just a physical one.
    Given the shift in political discourse recently, the right wing rich saber rattling, it seems more and more likely.
    Either America is a nazi state, or nazi islamists are invading; one half of the country is retarded.

    Relating the scientific method to the rich is retarded, the rich are not exceptionally intelligent; just rich, mild correlation at best.

      @Paragon Sentinel Ocean clean up groups are not barely enough. Tons of petrolleum is still burnt every day. Common if rich people invested their money on saving the world there would not be rich people and why tf d they want that.

  • thenowchurch

    Then I guess Climate Change is fake since really rich people, who have companies that pollute, would never let themselves and the world be under threat of increasingly dangerous and fatal weather conditions.
    Nice try guys, but you have not factored in the moral degeneracy of most of the super rich and powerful.

    • You, Person
      You, Person 12 days ago

      For any well educated person, researching a bit of grade 6 geography would allow them to understand how climate change is measured, thus making it clear that business empires obviously aren't sustainable from the start.
      I would hope that this would be obvious to most, anyways.

    The U.S. Army sprayed cadmium over poor areas of St. Louis in the 1950's. This was reported by the well known conspiracy mag the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Just like that this video has been debunked.

    Chemtrails are definitely a thing, it is a known fact now that as humans we would like to have influence over things like the weather for example. There is a russian test case where the reaction of the chem trails turned to a stone like solid and it rained stone. Its hilarious you dis-cause it with absolutely nothing but arrogance.

    To put it considerably more broadly:
    Does the nature of the conspiracy theory logically contradict the motivations or goals of the accused cause? If yes, then the theory is invalid.
