Conspiracy Theories 'Ridiculous,' Says Al Qaeda

I love conspiracy theories... and by love I mean hate. Conspiracy theories are attempts to desperately twist logical and reasonable thinking and support it with improbable and circumstantial evidence... well, when there is actual support provided. Usually, the form of their arguments goes like this: "we don't know who/what/how, but we have a suspicion of sinister forces at work, therefore we do know who/what/how, and it's okay that we don't have much evidence to back up our claims, we make up for our lack of data with plenty of wild conjectures and irrelevant distractions that are sure to send you on wild goose chases."

Their claims are unfalsifiable because no matter how much evidence one may use to refute them, conspiracy theorists have incorporated such evidence against them as part of the conspiracy itself, and any witness whose testimony contradicts their nutty accusations is also seen as an 'insider' who would 'obviously' say such things in order to keep the secrecy of the conspiracy going. In other words, they've poisoned the well, and then expect us to drink from it...

And as The Onion shows in the following hilarious video clip, NOTHING will ever convince them and change their stubborn minds...


Incidentally, what they've never understood is that LOLCats are behind everything!

And if you're curious why terrorists hate us... this is why :)
