On the days when academics imply that I'm as thick as pig shit, I look at the letters after my name that their system awarded me.
And it comforts me in my distress.

Lie, damned lies, and statistics.

Okay..And WHO are these scientists sponsored by? From my personal experience, conspiracy theorists seem MORE intelligent then the average man. They're usually more perceptive and have a better imagination to, which usually means higher intelligence.

It's just sarcasm.

The sad thing is it's the people who understand what's going on, are more open-minded and spiritually aware that are being mocked. That's just the way it's going to be. Uphill battle, only the strong come along for the ride. You didn't swallow the red pill for nothing. :)

perception, akin to finding God in a tree.
it doesn't mean you lack intelligence, it means you have a higher degree of perception.

silly t***s

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. -- George Orwell English essayist, novelist, & satirist (1903 - 1950)

You know who invented the term "Conspiracy Theorist?" F**k**g CONSPIRATORS man, that's who! Oh, and BTW you do know that the banksters got caught rigging the LIBOR rate, right? Well, that's a f**k**g conspiracy man...The diehard skeptics who don't believe in any malfeasance or coverups in this corrupt hellhole of what's left of a world already have a term associated with them: sheeple.
BTW, you lost me when you said the study was from Canada. Canadiens ain't Americans man. Did you see Michael Moore's movie? He interviewed actual Canadiens. They think we are a bunch of violent, gun-loving, paranoid drugheads who thrive on ultra-violence. And they're probably right to see us that way. So it's almost impossible to share views with them, we live in two different worlds. I'd be willing to bet on who funded their "study": f**k**g CONSPIRATORS man, that's who! LMAO! Here's some info that refutes their whole "study":

Any source from a reputed website such as The New York Times, The Guardian or CNN?
I'm thinking you said it all with the use of the word "reputed"...You mean the ones the president calls "Fake News"? One thing we can agree on..these ARE "reputed" news sources but whether they are "reputable" is truly open to interpretation :) (<>..<>)

paranormal and alternative medicine.

PhD candidate Gordon Pennycook and a team of researchers from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, tested hundreds of participants to make the link, detailing their findings in a paper entitled 'On the reception and detection of pseudo-profound bulls***', which mentions the word 'bulls***' exactly 200 times (surely some sort of record)

I couldn't help but smile at this one.

The point is that some conspiracies are utter rubbish, others are real. Is a person who can sense a genuine psyop or connect the dots between particular events which may be used for social or societal change less intelligent than someone who always believes what the BBC or others say without critical thinking?

I remember watching JFK by Oliver Stone. Arguably a bright guy...
