The Truth About Conspiracy Theories

by Ian R Thorpe.
Climate change, the World Trade centre, Obama's elegibility saga, GM crops, Enron, The News of the World hacking affair, Toxic debt andthe financial meltdown of 2008, The death of Princess Diana; conspiracy theories are everywhere. Many people claiming to be rationalists rubbish them but are there really no grounds at all for suispicion.

Don't Call Me A Conspiracy Theorist


by Ian R Thorpe.
2011-02-20
"That theory is worthless. It isn't even wrong."

So commented the Austrian physicist and Nobel Laureate Wolfgang Pauli on a student paper that provoked this beautiful and brutal reminder that the value of a scientific theory lies in its capacity to be tested.

Some might say that religion, for example, is another theory that "isn't even wrong". Believers not only reject the necessity of evidence to support their faith in God, but give the impression that such evidence would reduce their ineffable god to something less than they would be willing to worship.

An echo of Pauli's exasperation may resonate in the mind of any agnostic when a believer says something like: "I believe the universe was created by God. How do you explain its creation?"

Faced with such certainty a God-wobbler will usually be thrown off their stride and start waffling about the infinite possibilities of an infinite universe and how the process of scientific enquiry works by questioning everything and ... and ... and ...erm ...

In short the agnostic has no answer and is clutching at straws like some guy who has just been caught by his wife in falgrante delicto with his girlfriend and can only mumble 'this is not what it looks like' by way of an excuse. Another problem is the quasi religious tone support for science has taken on in recent decades. Point out (as someone with a truly sceptical and equiring mind should) that there is no more hard evidence for Big Bang theory than for the creation myth in the Book of Genesis and, if you know your stuff, the science heads will be on the back foot straight away and soon will be mumbling about mathematics being more reliable than mysticism. Well if that's what they believe, fine; that is their right. There are conspiracy theories of course, the doubts about the official version of events surrounding the death of Diana, Princess of Wales was recently given a new lease of like when Keith Allen, an actor and formerly the enfant terrible of the UK film, theatre and television industry launched a documentary he made on the subject at the Cannes film festival.

Keith Allen is not a conspiracy theorist although he may be a professional wind - up merchant and a thorn in the side of the establishment. What Allen does in his film Unlawful Killing is re - examine questions to which no satisfactory answers have been given and to which those who regard themselves as rational and logical habitually shout "conspiracy theory". Why was the white car that went into the Parisian tunnel ahead of Diana's car found burned out in a field several hudred miles away a few weeks later, why did the ambulance taking Diana to hospital pass two hospitals with modern, well equipped Accidentmergency units before delivering to a hospital that was not equipped to deal with such emergencies and so on... By themselves any of these things could be dismissed as remakably convenient coincidences. When so many remarkably convenient coincidences surround one central event it is not irrational to start asking questions.

Asking difficult questions or those officiadom would prefer not to answer does not of itself constitute a conspiracy theory so Keith Allen and other writers and film makers who have investigated the incident and others where the "rational explanation" is just to irrational to be credible are not in any way conspiracy theorists. The conspiracy theory bit comes in when somebody puts all these questions and a lot of spurious details together and presents the whole as 'proof' that the British Royal Family had Diana murdered.

One of the best known and most persistent conspiracy theories is the one about the Illuminati - the ancient, secret cult of shape shifting lizards that has ruled the world for thousands of years. Given what anybody with 'eyes to see and ears to hear' may observe going on in the world right now this one will not go away in a hurry and yet it has the least solid foundations of any.

There may be a modern cabal of financiers and powerful business people who manipulate the global economy and exercise an unhealthy degree of control over supposedly democratically elected governments but these are fairly modern and not in any way related to The Watchers of Enochian legend, The Elders of the Protocols of Zion, the Priory of Sion, the Knights Templar, the Freemasons, the Justified Ancients of Mumu, the Hellfire Club or any other real or fictional group. Nor does the phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum printed on currency bills of the United States of America. Along with other symbols that may or may not reveal a link between the founding fathers of the USA and Masonic ritual and beliefs the phrase does not relate to a New World Order (although I have at times used that mistranslation myself because it is widely recognised) that will be established by The Illuminati.

The New Order (Novus Ordo) part of the translation is correct but seclorum? Obviously that does not come from the secular, worldl. Seculorum is the Latin word for ever which appears in latin versions of The Lord's Prayer, "secula seculorum" - for ever and ever. The phrase actually first appears in Virgil's Eclogue 4 and refers to a yearning for an era of peace and harmony.

This being the case, a better translation of Novus Ordo Seclorum is New Order of Ages which in fact makes more sense in the context of the founding fathers giving the new nation a sense of identity. They are in effect saying; This is a new beginning, this is where the new order of ages starts and the old world ends. Had they wanted to convey a new order for the political world they would have surely used Mundus.

Once aware of this we can see that the whole Illuminati conspiracy theory might have been cooked up by those people who find themselves in a position to manipulate world commodity markets and influence political activity to their own advantage, in order to divert attention from their very secular and self interested activities secula seculorum.

So where does that leave the theory of the Illuminati? It requires a separate web page to relate the story their rise and fall but anyone interested can find it here The Illuminati">The Illuminati A comment made by the late Douglas Adams, author of Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy and many other very funny books could apply to conspiracy theories. Adam's said of his time as a script writer on the science fiction series Doctor Who, "the more preposterous the idea the more fans will like it." Conspiracy theories are fun, especially if they involve MI5 or CIA spooks in Parisian sewers, politicians with their pants down, a bald man with a dodgy mid European accent gliding around the magma chamber of an extinct volcano in an electric wheelchair while stroking a white, fluffy cat or an omniscient and omnipotent priestly order who serve an ancient God. I'd like to think my own conspiracy theory that childrens' writer Beatrix Poter founded the Ku Klux Klan would be up there among the contenders but unfortunately I never go round to publishing it widely enough.

Obviously all the main conspiracy theories could be right (except the one about Beatrix Potter, I know I made that up), but the burden of rational evidence is that we do not really have a clue how the universe began and some of us just die as a result of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

As historical events go, the creation of the universe and the death of Diana, Princess of Wales (sic) are a universe apart but it is a very human weakness to attach more importance to events which occur close to us in time and space than to far bigger events that are so remote as to be beyond comprehesion.

The faith that both scientists of the fanatical or scienceologist tendency and non-scientist militant atheists put on 'scientific method' is pathetic and naive. If those who cite "science" when they cry Conspiracy Theory were true scientists they would know how messy and worm-holey, conjecture-filled and speculative scientific investigation is. And that's not because real scientists don't aim for objective rigour, it's just that they are human. And part of being human often involves arrogantly denying our limitations of understanding jumping to conclusions and interpreting evidence in ways that give us the answer we expected (Bayesean inference). The thing about God and almost all branches of science is we truly know very little about either. The best scientists know this which is why they steer as far away from scientific certainties as they do from religious certainties.

This being the case we can understand that most of what is dismissed as 'another conspiracy theory' is nothing of the kind, rather it is somebody asking intelligent questions to which nobody has any intelligent answers. An event happens which is shocking (the first requirement for a conspiracy theory) and the consequences of this event trigger close scrutiny of all the institutions having any association with it. Suddenly we find that e-mails that should have been sent were not, that e-mails actually sent have mysteriously been deleted, a phone call somebody swears was made was made was not documented, a person who should have been thoroughly checked was waved through etc. etc. etc. These occurrences do not represent a conspiracy of collusion they are simply the way these authorities always work (or don't work) but with the major difference being that someone is now actually examining their workings. The FBI, CIA, MI5 and all the rest only have their fingers on the pulse in the movies and television. In reality, their ability to detect and/or prevent shocking man-made events is almost solely reliant on their adversaries being more stupid than they are, or making more mistakes than they do. The most common kind of conspiracy that is vehemently denied but is almost always real is the official or organisational cover up. That is how conspiracies work

An example of a conspiracy theory that turned out to be true is the Lynmouth flood of 1952. A gobsmackingly heavy and prolonged deluge fell on the moors above the small town of Lynmouth in the South West corner of England. This caused the River Lyn, normally hardly worth calling a river, to burst its banks sending an irresistible torrent through the sleepy little town. Houses and cars were washed away and people died.

The story is quite relevant now because a few years ago a similar flood happened in nearby Boscastle a few years ago. This was described as an unprecedented climate catastrophe and cited as 'proof' of global warming. Warmageddon sceptics were quick off the mark in reminding the climate science lobby that if something that happens now is similar to an event that happened in 1951, then the most recent event is not unprecedented. Once again the scientists were left with egg on their faces.

Now that recent flood down in Cornwall may have been due to any number of things, but if it was due to carbon driven climate change what was happening in 1951 to cause such a similar thing? There was a conspiracy theory attached to the 1951 flood. In the weeks following the disaster a rumour developed suggesting the Ministry of Defence had been experimenting with the use of silver idodine to seed clouds and cause torrential rainstorms as a means of disrupting enemy attacks.

The government, academics and Ministry of Defence officials denied doing any such thing of course and in time the Lynmouth disaster faded into history. Had the event occurred in 2001 rather than 1951 the rumours would have been quickly dismissed as another crazy conspiracy theory. In 1976 however, official papers released by the government revealed that yes, the Ministry had been involved in experimentally seeding clouds with silver idodine in 1951 around the time the Lynmouth flood occurred. And surprise, surprise, some of the experiments had been carried out in South West England, in the immedeiate vicinity of Lynmouth.

Self styled rationalists will chant their mantra 'correlation does not prove causation which only proves the 'science' community do not understand the difference between correlation and coincidence. In this case it is true however that no direct link between the cloud seeding experiments and the Lynmouth flood disaster can ever be proved. But then no direct link between OJ Simpson and his wife's death was ever proved.

Who though is gullible and naive? The geek who says, "Well if no link can be proved that proves there was no link," or the more rational and worldly person who says, "Well OK, we never expected definite proof of a link, even if proof were possible it would amount to an admission by a British government department that it caused the death of British citizens, but we can say on the balance of probabilities that it seems likely there was a link.

Perhaps now readers will understand the difference between honest but sceptical questioning and conspiracy theory and why the more the questioning pisses off the establishment, the more it proves we sceptics have a duty to keep asking the inconvenient questions.

Even in this age of universal information most human activity involving groups of people depends on a degree of trust. We are given tasks to carry out and as much information as we need to perform the task. This way of working is referred to as "need to know" basis and there is nothing sinister about it. If I or any other manager had been required to explain every detail of a multi million pound project to everybody involved nothing would have been done. Need To Know is very common in business and politics. We are all conditioned to work on a need to know basis. I have always had a knack for asking the questions people at the top would rather not answer. It took me a years to learn that it was usually better not to ask those questions but instead accept the information I was given as correct no matter how illogical it seemed and simply get on with the job. Thus we can dismiss the usual Conspiracy deniers cop out that a conspiracy would be impossible because too great a number of people would be required to keep the secret. In reality very few would need to know the whole story, most would just be working with what they needed to know and the knowledge that asking too many questions can derail careers. Even those of us who do not have mortgages or rent to pay and families to support have to eat. As long as politicians, business leaders, academics and public servants remain so absolutely inept at explaining what they are doing or trying and failing to do, they must be challenged. "You are not permitted to question authority" is an attitude that has no place in a democratic state. The flummery about the Illuminati was never really a conspiracy theory, it was an urban myth. The notion that television coverage of the moon landings was staged in a Hollywood film studio was a classic conspiracy therory. There was a motive; America did not want to lose face by being seen to be lagging behind Russia in the race to conquer space; there were many individuals and organisations who stood to gain either politically or materially and there were lots of details, snippets of speech taken out of context, extracts from leaked documents, apparently anomalous happenings during the moon landing, which were assembled and offered as truth. And there were (and still are) fantically patriotic Americans and proto-scienceheads always prepared to over react to any suggestion, not matter how tongue in cheek, that the moon landings were not genuine.

Two recent controversies about which concerns were raised only for them to be dismissed as conspiracy theories were the Enron and World Com accounting frauds. I don't know much about Enron other than what people involved in finance and accountancy have told me but I was involved in World Com at the level of trying to dissuade my clients from getting involved with a company that claimed it could buy in a product, sell on that product more cheaply and yet make a profit. These two companies had similar business models and traded in products it is hard to see, energy and communications capacity so nobody could see the empty shelves in the warehouse. Both were operating variations on Ponzi schemes that relied on, to put it in the simplest terms, signing up more new customers each month than had been signed up the month before. Not only were the Enron and World Com frauds conspiracies, they relied on other conspiracies. The most common type of conspiracy and a type I have been involved in many times is the organisational cover up, the whitewash. These conspiracies do not serve people with grandiose ambitions to rule the world or hijack take over a nation. They are solely to save the careers and reputations of people involved in cock ups within corporations or government departments. Anybody who is now shaking their head and saying, "No that just would not happen in the real world," is a gullible fool. Not all gullible fools are beyond redemption however so here is a link to Naked Finance, a breakdown of how conspiracies work in the financial markets. There will of course be people who demand from me links to web pages that 'prove' such things happen. Some people are not just beyond redemption they are FUBAR.

Think about the World Trade Centre. No matter how many times it is pointed out that the rational explanations offered as to why the towers collapsed in such a controlled way or why Tower Seven fell are more irrational and far fetched than the whackiest theories. Forget any suggestion that the Bush administration colluded in the hijackings (they didn't, UK Intelligence warned the American authorities that a terrorist attack on the US mainland was being planned but had no details of what, where ot when and the USA is a very big place.) but do ask yourself how several swathy, shifty looking guys could walk into an airport in the world's most powerful and thechnlogically advanced nation carrying weapons and board planes. The conspiracy kicked in after the event. Whenever a cock up is too big and embarrassing to be quickly forgotten the cover up conspiracy always starts right after the event. The moment a drop of blood is shed the bureaucrats first thought is about covering their arses.

In these cases the truth will only come out if a whistleblower is supported by business and political interests, if enough people stand to gain by exposing the conspiracy.

Now is anybody going to tell me there are no conspiracies and it's all the ravings of paranoid fantasists?

Scientist who convinced Boris lockdown was the only way to beat coronavirus criticised many times for flawed research

The scientist whose mathematical models of how the coronavirus would spread in the UK and the wildly exaggerated estimates of how many deaths might result from the epidemic reportedly led to the decision to implement a countrywide lockdown and trash the economy has been criticised in the past for flawed research.

Has The World Health Organisation Been Helping Chinese Coronavirus Cover Up
Many people suspected as far back as January, when stories about an epidemic of a new virus began to leak out of China that we were not and would not be told the whole story. The virus infecting thousands of Chinese in the large inland city of Wuhan was, we learned, a strain of corona virus, the genre that infects us with the common cold, influenza and a host of other infections of varying seriousness.

Coronavirus deaths: Are The Authorities Deceiving Us?Yesterday we reported that a Canadian outfit had carried out an analysis of China’s response to Coronavirus and concluded that while politicians and academics (aka “scientists” or “experts”) are heaping praise on the way the regime in Beijing has contained and controlled its epidemic, the Chinese have actually been lying, the epidemc is still raging and numbers of infections and deaths from COVID – 19 are far higher than reported,

As We Predicted The Coronavirus bill Is The Biggest Assault On Freedom Since World War 2
Things have gone so far beyond what can be considered a rational response to an outbreak of a highly contagious but for most people relatively minor illness that I am starting to believe even the conspiracy theories I know I made up myself. Along with my fellow Boggart Bloggers I predicted weeks ago the current outbreak of the so - called coronavirus would see a massive hyping of the threat level leading up to an assault on our freedoms. And that is exactly what we have seen happening over the past week.
