Given that I am one who believes in some rather obvious conspiracies, I cannot overlook this post. An extract:
“Science Orders You: Stop Thinking Rationally.
The author goes on to say that “recent scientific research” tells us that people who believe there’s more to a story may actually accept several competing theories as plausible. And because they are open to competing theories, they’re basically wacky.

The article reinforces this implication.
