    Some “conspiracy misinformation” is more wacko than other. But that’s only my opinion, as it is yours as to what is conspiracy.

    My bucket of “could be true” conspiracies include Jeffery Epstein killed and John F. Kennedy killed by multiple people.

    My view of “those are crazy wacko ideas” include we never went to the moon, George Bush caused the twin towers to fall, HIV is a lab created virus to wipe out African Americans by making them sterile.

    I'm with you; that whole Jeffrey Epstein thing was just full of "coincidences."

    What about the whole flat earth thing?











    You know the earth is somewhere around 70-80% water, correct?
    You realize it is uncarbonated?

    As a follow up, NPR had a feature about the growing alliance between anti-vaxx activists and pro-Trump Republics. I'm starting to think the relationship between GOP and Covid vaccination rates and Covid deaths is not coincidence.

    i would like to point out that “anti-vaccine activist” doesn’t necessarily mean “anti-vax” in the whole. The NPR article talks about mandating vaccines.

    I would advocate against vaccine mandates since I find that idea horrifying, but I think the Covid-vaccine is fine to take freely, and I would encourage all to get it.

    I agree with you on your lists of possible vs wacko conspiracy theories.

    Another "could be true" conspiracy theory is that TWA800 was really downed by an accidental missile strike by the Coast Guard.
