Study Probes Why People Believe Conspiracy Theories

Study Probes Why People Believe Conspiracy Theories:  A new study found that people who frequently endorsed conspiracy theories were more likely to believe they possessed scarce and secret information which most others do not.  Of course, I’m not necessarily sure it’s a positive thing when the only others in possession of that “secret information” you possess - are people who’ve been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.

3D-Printed Rocket Engine Succeeds in First Test Fire:  An innovative new “aerospike” rocket engine constructed entirely by 3D printing has been fired by engineers in Melbourne, Australia.  A 3D-Printed Rocket Engine?  It’d be just my luck I’m taking off to the moon and it suddenly runs out of ink.

Man With Cancer Takes Herbal Pills With Cyanide for 5 Years:  When a 67-year-old Australian man went in for surgery, doctors were unable to operate because his blood oxygen levels were well below safe levels - after which doctors determined the reason was the man had been taking potent apricot supplements for his prostate cancer the past 5 years - which are full of cyanide.  While I don’t know the man and I’m certainly no doctor, but I can only assume his reasoning was something like apricots never get cancer?  Personally, I’d have gone with pumpkin seeds - they taste better and are a hell of a lot cheaper if you get them at Trader Joe’s.

True-Believers whose main source of information is Alex Jones and Facebook have clearly demonstrated they lack critical thinking skills. Unfortunately, those are the very people most likely to spread such nonsense and infect friends, family members and the body politic.
