I often wonder if those who believe in conspiracy theories act in a cult like fashion in which anyone who questions the group as a whole is often shunned.  One definition of a cult is a small group of devotees.  In challenging the conspiracies that surround 9/11 even though I said I would not address this issue again, I felt the need to.  It was in challenging these beliefs I was told by someone that I was in the minority and as stated previously, I asked; who was this person polling. 

 

I will state again that while in the beginning I too believed in these theories, I had to open my mind to other possibilities which brought about the devastation of that day.  In speaking to so many people outside the Internet community, I did not find one who did believe that it was a grand conspiracy perpetrated by our government.  When I relayed to most of the people I spoke with that certain articles were being circulated around the Internet that Virginia Tech was a perpetrated by the government, it was met with complete outrage and disgust.  I stated to those I conversed with, do not shoot the messenger, meaning me.  But, they were dumbfounded.

 

I often wonder if there is a real and credible terrorist threat that we should pay attention to; will it be confronted by conspiracy theorists not to pay attention to it via alerts circulated around the Internet?  If they do; aren’t they in fact doing more harm than good?
