In every age and with every generation, in every city and among every group of people, within every corporation and even in every household, there are individuals who seek to manipulate a situation in order to benefit from personal gain.
Kings and noblemen did it to the peasants, company CEO’s do it to their labor force, even older sibling do it to their little brothers and sisters. This shows that from an early age, the human psychological inclination to be able to manipulate circumstances for personal gain already exists within the human psyche. Thus is born, the concept of conspiracies, defined as ‘a secret plan by a group or individual to do something for personal gain.’
The point of it is this, to develop a system in which claims can be objectively and scientifically scrutinized WITHOUT bias, and provide the information to the public so the people as a whole can decide to act upon or do what is most beneficially for everyone.
Over the years, people continue to develop various conspiracy theories, some with a decently adequate amount of information to back specific claims, others based on wild accusations. The problem with conspiracy theories is twofold;
- one, a lack of properly developed systematic organization that is completely open to the public
- two, the lack of official support for any provable system.
- Therefore to adequately address these issue, a new type of system has to be developed;
Every idea should be criticized, as this is a part of human intellect it to challenge the credibility and validity of any piece of information brought to us. However, every controversial event that originates from an intelligent source, splits the people it effects into two different groups:
- Those whom want to know the truth
- Those that are trying to conceal the truth
So how can you know if those that are critical of a conspiracy theory do not have some type of alternative motive, the answer will always come from examination of all the evidence and doing ones best to put aside personal bias. However there comes a time after the facts have been proven that some type of action needs to take place, or complacency takes over.
Another severe blow to any possible credible story are those that take the story, pretend to be supporters of its claims and exaggerate all kind of extreme ideas into it. These additional claims help to quickly discredit a story and put sever doubt into the minds of those that at one time had a serious intrigue in the credibility of a story.
At this point, it is important to discuss the difference between conspiracy theories and controversial investigations. Controversial investigation takes a specific claim, examines the implications of social impact and follows a set of highly systematic organized tactics to create a publicly accessible, information database.
For the LORD spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. But the LORD of hosts, him you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.Isaiah 8.11-13
