People should apply a little logic in their life. I mean, hey, we all have our irrational beliefs, of course we do, but some people accept any new information said to them in a knowing matter.

For example, did you know the average person swallows 8 spiders during their sleep? Of course you do, because you have heard it somewhere. It could well be true, of course, but ask yourself, how exactly would someone measure this? To get a true average one would have to conduct a survey of at least a thousand people, for a year, and moniter them while they sleep to see if they swallow any spiders! Insane.

Intelligent design is like that, it says that life is so complex that it would, in fact, have to have been designed by intelligent life. Wait, but who designed THAT life? Honestly people and their ways.

And the moon landings? For god sake! I mean ignoring the fact that to pretend a project like that actually never happened you'd have to silence literally thousands of people, including people not even in the US, the brilliance of this conspiracy theory is thus: The entire reason for this conspiracy, was, apparently, to make the Russians think we had won the space race. And so all these Russian scientists looked at the photos, and watched the videos, and were completely fooled. But now, a couple of idiots in America have seen through the deception? I don't buy it.

Theres even a theory that the plane that crashed into the pentagon wasn't, in fact a plane, but a missile. Again, it does not seem to need to explain what actually happened to the plane then. Or, indeed, why on earth someone would be firing a missile into the pentagon on the same day as the world trade centres were attacked by planes (although there are a handful of crazies who think THAT didn't happen).

There are people who believe in a flat earth, a heliocentric universe, that the earth is only 6,000 years old, that aliens built the pyramids, that if you get a map and draw a line joining up sacred places you can find places of ancient power.... It beggars belief, it really does.

Thing is, there is normally barrels of evidence to actually contradict all these arguments- actual science showing that these theories are totally silly, but you can contradict them all with applying a bit of logic to it.
