Some, supposedly liberal anti-gun types. are calling for Alex Jones to be shot.  Please explain to me how this makes them better than he, or the logic of listening to those crazies over Jones.  I disregard both as lunatic fringe.

Within every subset of people, there are extreme types of all kinds.

Alex Jones is probably the KG of his subgroup. One could equate Jones's "crazy" as passion.

People are different and there are some people who only respond to aggressive, passionate personalities. Some people actually gravitate towards those kinds of personalities.

The short video clip only portrays Alex Jones's passion and craziness for a short time frame. Alex isn't like that all the time. He only gets that way when he is really "in to it".

An example: when Tommy Heinshon gets riled up from the NBA refs, he can sound rather "passionate" as well....sometimes....but that is not 100% of the time.

There are also many sports fans who say "crazy" things and demonstrate "crazy" personalities towards opposing players. I think a few Knicks fans wished Paul Pierce ceased to exist, but they used coarse language and vile intent.

I, for one, was never into believing conspiracies....but things have changed for me, over these last 10+ years.

Is it foolish to place any credence into conspiracies?

Is it naive not to?

If people can fly airplanes into buildings killing thousands, or shoot up schools, movie theaters, killing all kinds of people including 6 year olds.....why not conspiracies?

Jones believes 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing were inside jobs by the U.S. government, thinks the government intentionally blew up the space shuttle Columbia, and believes that the government is intentionally causing people to turn gay through chemicals inserted into our food.  Those are his more mild conspiracies, too.

CRAZY.

If you do not trust, there is ample evidence to question.

The search for truth is not crazy.

That's true, but you can't just play fast and loose with the rules of evidence if you're actually searching for truth, rather than espousing contrarian thoughts for ratings.

The problem is with most conspiracy theorists is that they are not searching for truth, they are searching for conspiracy.  When they come across evidence that can clearly debunk their conspiracy, they completely disregard it in search for different evidence that can further support their theories.

One searching for truth enters the search with an open mind, examines all evidence and then makes a decision based on all evidence.

Roy H. Paul doesn't even acknowledge it. and that link you posted below below the youtube video is quite possibly the most bizzare thing I've ever seen you post on here.

I agree with you, Jones's has his eyes on other things, ratings most likely being one of them...other than solely just the truth.

I agree with you. Within the subset of conspiracy theorists there are fanatical ones. There are still legit truth seekers out there who want all the evidence available regarding a specific situation/topic, yet all the evidence is not forthcoming or made available.

Sometimes the evidence already made available is just merely the evidence they want you to see. The rest of the other stuff is left in a file cabinet somewhere to collect dust.

I am not afraid to say it. I fall more in the camps of Alex Jones, Joe Rogan, and Jesse Ventura.

If you had asked me 5-10 years ago, I would have said the same thing Roy was saying that these kinds of people were "crazy".

Maybe they are not "normal", but that ain't bad in my opinion. To me, in today's society, if you are normal...that ain't necessarily a good thing.

If we are going to lift this country back to the standards that our previous generations have all been used to...we need to be above normal. We need our children to be above normal.

Each and every day, I grow weary of the future generations...standards are lowered...everyone "gets a trophy". I do not believe we are grooming our future the best that we can.

We can only change if we know to change and we cannot know if we do not have all the necessary information....the truth.

If I have to experience the "crazy" conspiracy theorists in order to turn over every rock to find the truth....or at least the opportunity to LOOK for the truth...I feel it is absolutely worth it.

Do you mean I believe 100% of the story that has been put out there?  No.

Do you mean I 100% believe that 9-11 was the operation of a terrorist organization and the United States government was no way involved in the planning of it?  I am about as close to 100% sure of this as I am of most other things I believe in.

I don't believe in scare quotes, if that's relevant.
