I Do Not Concent !!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

It is spelled CONSENT  lol ... Dear Hammer, the one who honestly believes the moon landing was staged and not real.   Now he apparently believes that whatever vaccines will be made for and widely distributed to the world will not work, etc.  Question everything, that is my motto, but use real data and facts.  Being informed takes time and effort, don't believe or disbelieve willy nilly. 

Polls show that most people believe in at least one conspiracy theory. Considering the number of conspiracy theories there are, perhaps this isn’t surprising. But research shows that people who believe in one conspiracy theory are more likely to believe in others.

Part two of the Expert guide to conspiracy theories, a series from The Conversation’s Anthill podcast, discovers who these people are. We find out what psychological factors influence whether you believe in conspiracy theories or not. And how things like the time and place in which you live, who your friends are and who holds political power makes you more open to certain conspiracy theories.

Jan-Willem van Prooijen, associate professor of psychology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands, explains his theory that humans are hardwired to believe in conspiracy theories. He says the circumstances of hunter gatherer life meant that our ancestors adapted to be overly suspicious:

We think that there is an evolved basis for the human tendency to easily distrust other groups, which I think is at the heart of conspiracy thinking.

Times have changed but humans are stuck with this hangover from hunter gatherer times that we sometimes struggle to shake. We speak to psychologists Karen Douglas and Aleksandra Cichocka at the University of Kent in the UK to find out why certain people today are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories than others.
