    Another thing John left out is that believing in a conspiracy creates a feel good sensation that *you know something others don't* or that you're in into *a secret*. It's another reason why it can be so hard for people who believe in one to "get out". But the biggest challenge is that zero out of ten people like to admit they're wrong or believed in a lie, doubly so because they turn the belief into part of their own self, so to speak, so, to them, attacking the theory is a personal attack.

It’s not our fault, kids these days spend all their time on their parents couch. Hell they don’t even kiss each other anymore...last week I had more pass alongside to robots from Japan then actual skin to skin contact. Syphilis: I used to be known as the love I get passed along to more panties stuck on a nose of some creep then actually enjoying my time with two fucking adults....TOGETHER! HIV: settle down please. We are needing something new. Something that people think is a hoax but gamers can catch even in the safety of their home! DOOR SLAMS OPEN: I hear you need an infiltrator? HIV: who the hell are you? Mysterious figure: I’m your fucking angel.. a god send as you will. I’ve got the halo to prove it. I’ll ensure everyone who is dumb will get it and everyone else will fear it till their loneliness breaks them mentally where your skin to skin contact will not be so worried about by time people loose their shit. People will care more that they need to put a uncomfortable mask on and expose themselves to others just to get a the sheer exhaustion of that process they’ll just say we will pull out.... 2021: HIV...welcome sexual monsters to 2021....Corona virus your strategy worked so well that herpes and syphilis had a baby. So thank you again. Hip hip hurray for corona!

    D GREETINGS! TO YALL. The Doctors Said Herpes Virus do not have a medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes is not a special virus; your immune system has the power to fight it back but because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body. But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body within just 14days without damaging any of your cells. Natural herbs kills the bad cells carrying the herpes virus totally! within just 14 days. I am not a medical doctor but i get cured from a herbal doctor who name is Dr abumere with his natural herbal medicine within just 14 days and his medicine is% 100 safe and it has no side effects.

    Sometimes I hear people talk about conspiracy theories and then they say how ridiculous they are. What that is not a very critical way of thinking. Conspiracy do exist, as an example say two people are working for a business and they plot to take over to business that is a conspiracy. So the question is not due conspiracies exist but which ones are true and which ones are false. To me that is a much more rational way to look at it together the facts on whatever conspiracy theory that you might be interested in and determine by the facts if it is true or not. One thing not to do is just assume that all conspiracy theories are fault or all conspiracy theories are true. I think the fact is that some maybe are true and some maybe our false. So try to shift defaults from the true. God bless you.

  108. Pete laRosa

    Pete laRosa8 kun oldin

    Watch time that the truth come out the Earth is not round or flat it is a perfect cube, where do you think they got the idea for the Rubik's cube from, from the Earth well now we finally know the truth. Well I don't really believe that but one thing I would say whether the Earth is round or egg shape or flat or whatever one factory remains true and that is at the Lord Jesus Christ loved you and died for you. No matter what you believe about the shape of the earth you can accept Jesus as your savior. But that just let me add a little extra word here that I do believe that the Earth is round and I believe in modern science. I'm just saying at the most important thing is not to shape of the Earth but if you know Jesus as your savior or not scared God bless you and have a wonderful day.
