Business Insider spoke to Dr. Jan-Willem van Prooijen, associate professor of psychology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Dr. van Prooijen said people are often drawn to conspiracy theories after major diasters as a way of coping with their fear. He added he finds the flat earth and hollow earth theories the most baffling due to the wealth of scientific research on the subject.

It can be easy, in certain moods, to suspect that we can trust no one and to feel the temptation of conspiracy theories. But we’d be wiser learning the art of an intelligent form of scepticism.

Deeply sinister motives appear to be at work everywhere beneath the surface. No one, however high their reputation, is entirely beyond suspicion. Every institution, even the most venerable, may be at it. Whatever may publically be said, something a whole lot ghastlier is probably going on in private. Taking anything on good faith seems a sure route to naivety and disillusion.

But in reality, believing in conspiracy theories is pretty mainstream. Studies suggest that 50% of Americans believe in at least one conspiracy theory. So what makes conspiracy theories so popular?

Human beings are skeptical of coincidence, and think in terms of cause-and-effect, which is why many people are attracted to conspiracy theories to explain seemingly inexplicable events, like the assassination of a U.S. President. Susan Spencer talks with spy novelist Gayle Lynds and psychologist Rob Brotherton about humans' propensity to seek out clandestine, nefarious plots, and with professor Joseph Uscinski, who has studied hundreds of bizarre theories, and who thinks a little dose of conspiracy-thinking actually may be good for democracy.

YouTube promoted a video claiming to show evidence that one of the survivors of last week's school shooting in Parkland, Florida, is a paid actor. Similar videos and articles are showing up on YouTube and other social media sites like Facebook. The issue is an example of a potentially troubling problem for social media sites and how news is delivered to the world. Following is a transcript of the video. The fake news problem on social media is not going away. We learned that firsthand in the wake of the Florida shooting that took 17 lives. After the shooting, a lot of student activists from the school, started speaking out for more gun control. One of those students was David Hogg. Hogg has appeared on many news outlets, and eventually conservatives started to take notice. And some conservatives started to promote a new conspiracy theory that Hogg was a paid actor to promote liberal agendas, like gun control. At first those conspiracy theories kind of bubbled under the surface, until it broke through on YouTube. YouTube promoted a video saying Hogg was a paid actor, as the top video on its trending section. Within hours, YouTube caught the mistake and said it was their fault. YouTube said its algorithm detected that the video was an authoritative news source, and therefore was able to make it through to the top of the trending section. But that's not where the problem ended. If you searched for David Hogg's name on YouTube, dozens of videos came up propagating the same conspiracy theory. It happened on Facebook too. In the trending section on Facebook, if you clicked on David Hogg's name, you saw some legitimate news articles about him, but you also saw a lot more of the same conspiracy theories we were seeing on YouTube and a lot of fringe conservative websites. Facebook called that content abhorrent and a product manager told me they were taking it down. But this gets to a larger issue. Every time a major news event happens, especially tragedies like mass shootings, the social networks are perverted and abused to promote conspiracy theories like the one we saw about David Hogg. And it goes to an even deeper problem. Big tech companies like to say that their platforms can't be, quote, arbiters of the truth. And that really means, they view the truth as subjective instead of objective. And if they're starting from a point where the truth is subjective, there's no way the fake news problem can actually be fixed. Facebook is trying to play the role where users decide what are trusted and authoritative news sources. For example, Facebook is issuing surveys to users, asking if they believe certain outlets are trusted and authoritative sources. However, they haven't said how they're going to prevent these surveys from being gamed. It could easily lead to more fake news in your newsfeed. One of the best ways to combat this problem, will take an entire rethinking of the ways these tech platforms operate. They need to realize they have the same responsibility that traditional news organizations have. That means editors, that means fact checkers, that means people monitoring the content to make sure what gets out there is as close to the truth as possible. And when they mess up, there need to be consequences, just like there are consequences for normal media organizations. When a journalist screws up, he has to issue a correction. He gets fired. We don't see those kind of repercussions with social media. Both Facebook and YouTube have said they're going to hire thousands of human content monitors to address this issue. But so far, we haven't seen any indication that that is working. We don't know who these content monitors are, what rules they're operating under, and even if they're full time employees of these companies. Facebook, Google, Twitter, they're all operating from a standpoint that the truth is subjective. And until they change that mindset, the fake news problem can't be fixed. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Why do some people believe in conspiracy theories? Can you change their minds? TEACHERS: Get your students in the discussion on KQED Learn, a safe place for middle and high school students to investigate controversial topics and share their voices. https://learn.kqed.org/topics/8 The Earth is flat. We never landed on the moon. Tupac is alive and well, living in Cuba and still releasing music to this day. Conspiracy theories are all over the internet. Why do some people believe in conspiracy theories, and can you change the mind of someone who believes in one? ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and investigates the research behind controversial and trending topics in the news.

Follow us on Instagram @kqedabovethenoise Conspiracy theories are nothing new, but with the internet and the rise of social media, conspiracy theories are getting in front of a lot of eyeballs. After the Sandy Hook school shooting in late 2012, a term that started on underground blogs went mainstream -- CRISIS ACTORS. Conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones started pushing a narrative that the school shooting never happened, and that that the victims weren’t students but instead were paid actors. Sometimes, conspiracy theories can spill out into the real world and do actual damage -- like when a man armed with a rifle entered a Washington DC-area pizzeria, convinced that the restaurant was involved in a sex trafficking operation masterminded by Hillary Clinton. He didn’t find anything but a bunch of now-freaked-out people eating pizza. But have you ever sat down and tried to argue with someone who believes in a conspiracy theory? Can you change a conspiracy theorist’s mind? What is a conspiracy theory? A conspiracy theory is a belief that an organization is working in secret to achieve some sinister goal. Are conspiracy theories always false? Not always. They usually are false, but they can be true. For example, back in the 1950’s and 60’s, there was a conspiracy theory claiming that the CIA was using U.S. citizens to conduct secret mind control experiments. Surprisingly, that theory turned out to be true. The project was called MK Ultra, and it was indeed an experiment run by the CIA. Congressional testimony in the late 1970’s showed that it was real and did, in fact, happen. What is illusory pattern perception? Illusory pattern perception is when your brain perceives a pattern when one doesn’t actually exist. Humans are primed to see patterns, so this actually happens more often than you probably realize.

Liberal college students have taken to shouting down certain right-leaning speakers on campus that they don't agree with. Michael Shermer, the publisher of Skeptic Magazine, thinks that is the worst thing you can do. He posits that all you do when you prevent someone from speaking is make certain people want to hear them more. This has led to the rise of the conspiracy theorists and why fringe ideas—from something as silly as flat-earth believers to something as morally reprehensible as Nazism and Holocaust deniers—have been pushed back into the mainstream. Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michael-shermer-how-skepticism-can-fight-radicalism-conspiracy-theorists-and-holocaust-deniers Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink There’s a market for what we do; that is, skepticism. What is skepticism? It’s just a scientific way of thinking. So why aren’t scientists doing this? Because they’re busy doing their own thing in their particular fields. What the skeptical movement has developed is a set of tools like the Baloney Detection Kit, a set of tools to deal with particular claims that are on the margins of science like creationism, intelligent design theory, the anti-vaccinations, the holocaust revisionists, you know, all these conspiracy theories and so on and all these alternative medicines, there’s hundreds and hundreds of these claims that are all connected to different sciences, but the scientists in those particular fields are too busy working in their research to bother with what these claims are because they claims really aren’t about those fields, they’re just hooked to them. They’re about something else, because back in the ‘80s when I first saw some professional scientists debate Duane Gish, the “Young Earth” creationist, they did not fare well. And I saw some holocaust historians debating or confronting Holocaust so-called revisionists or deniers, they did not fare well because they didn’t know the special arguments that are being made by these fringe people that have nothing to do with the science really, they have an agenda, and they’re using these little tweaked questions to get at the mainstream and try to debunk it for their own idea logical reasons. So for example, like Holocaust revisionists, they make this the big deal about why the door on the gas chamber at Mauthausen doesn’t lock. “I mean if it doesn’t lock how are you gassing people if you can’t lock the door? So they must not have gassed people in there, so if they didn’t gas people at Mauthausen they probably didn’t gas people at any of the death camps. And if they didn’t gas people at any of the death camps then there must not have been a Holocaust.” What?! Wait a minute. All from this door that doesn’t lock? Well I eventually went and found out that that wasn’t the original door; that took me a couple of years, but that’s the kind of specialty thing that skeptics do that mainstream scientists, scholars, historians don’t have time to do. So over the 25 years, not just us there’s other skeptic magazines and conferences and groups of people that meet at meet ups and so on all over the world, and it’s because of the Internet, especially this whole idea of what we now call fake news, alternative facts, has gotten bigger and bigger and it just gets unfolded in real time online within minutes and hours and we have to jump on it fast. That’s really in part what we do so that’s what we’ve been doing for 25 years is kind of putting out brushfires here and there, but also developing a set of tools that can apply to any future ideas, because I don’t know what’s going to be popular five years from now. Heck I don’t know what’s going to be trending tomorrow, who knows? So you’ve got to have these tools at the ready and that’s what we’ve been doing at Skeptic magazine, but let's address a college campus issue these days. Ok, I really think this goes back to the 1980s. I noticed it first when I was in graduate school, the second time when I got a PhD in the history of science. My first round was in the ‘70s in experimental psychology graduate school, and I didn’t notice any of this campus stuff. In the late ‘80s when I was in my doctoral program—because history deals a lot with literature, the kind of post-modernist deconstruction of what texts means, it was really taking off. So I initially thought “What is this? But okay I’ll give it a shot I’ll keep an open mind here and just try to follow the reasoning.” And I kind of see where they were going. So what is the true meaning of Jane Austen’s novel here, or Shakespeare’s play there, or this novelist or that author? And I can see that there may not be one meaning. Maybe the author meant it as kind of provoking you to think about certain deep issues and you have to find your own meaning in the text. Okay, I can understand that.

Over the past 10 years, a growing online community of conspiracy theorists and hoaxers known as “truthers” has come to question the official narratives behind every mass shooting that is heavily covered by the media. A common thread in these theories is the government’s role in staging the tragedy with the help of mainstream news, in order to manipulate the general population. In this continuously recycled narrative, the death and destruction of the tragic event is faked, and victims and their families are “crisis actors,” who are performing a role in order to elicit sympathy that can then be used to advocate for new gun laws, or anti-terror surveillance that restricts Americans’ freedom. The commitment to these narratives has escalated to the point where victims are frequently harassed, mocked, and even threatened in retaliation for their supposed deception. We meet some of the proponents of false flag theories, including Side Thorn, a conspiracy theorist in Texas who has been confronting survivors of the Sutherland Springs mass shooting, as well as Tony Mead, administrator of the largest Facebook community dedicated to False Flag narratives, and Wolfgang Halbig, a former school administrator who made a name for himself with the claim that no one died at the Sandy Hook shooting. We also talk to people targeted by hoax theories, like Lenny Pozner whose son Noah was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, David Hogg, who was accused of being a “crisis actor” for his calls for gun control after the mass shooting at his high school in Parkland, Florida, and Frank Pomeroy, whose daughter was killed in the Sutherland Springs shooting.

Not only are they at the heart of recent far-right terrorist attacks, they spread like wildfire on social media, and they are gaining ground among the young and educated. What is their appeal? And what can we do to stop them? Elise Wang has been teaching at Duke since January 2018, after receiving her PhD at Princeton and master's degree at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. She believes that teaching is a transformative act. In settings from prisons to university lecture halls to ESL classrooms, Dr. Wang strives to bring all students - but especially those who feel themselves at the margins of the classroom - to the center of scholarly debate. She feels strongly that such attention helps students connect deeply to their education, because it allows them to see it not as a measure of their value, but as a supporting character in the story of their lives.

Why do people believe conspiracy theories? What’s the harm if they do? And just what is a conspiracy theory, anyway? Conspiracy theories captured the attention of philosophers and historians decades ago, but it is only within the last few years that psychologists have begun gathering data on these kinds of questions. In this talk, Rob Brotherton provides a psychological perspective on conspiracism, drawing on his own research as well as other insights explored in his book Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories. In particular, research into cognitive biases and heuristics – quirks in the way our brains are wired – suggests that we’re all intuitive conspiracy theorists; some of us just hide it better than others. Rob Brotherton is an academic psychologist. He completed a PhD on the psychology of conspiracy theories with the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London. He now lives in New York City and teaches classes on conspiracy theories, social psychology, and science communication at Barnard College. This talk was recorded live at CSICon Las Vegas on Saturday, October 28th 2017. Check out more talks: https://reasonabletalk.tv/ Learn more about CFI: http://www.centerforinquiry.net/

Conspiracy theorists are on the national stage like never before, says Atlantic writer Rosie Gray. Alex Jones of Infowars fame is at the forefront. He’s responsible for propagating the widespread conspiracy theories that 9/11 was an inside job and that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, among others. Jones beliefs have moved from the fringes into the spotlight as his symbiotic relationship with Donald Trump has progressed. InfoWars isn’t the only media outlet that has Trump’s ear—former Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon is the current White House chief strategist. “In the era of Trump, Breitbart has essentially become mainstream media.” Gray explains in this video.

A former YouTube engineer is speaking out against the company’s recommendation algorithm, saying that it is programmed in a way that could lead to the promotion of conspiracy theories. Guillaume Chaslot, who has a Ph.D, in computer science and worked on the YouTube recommendation algorithm in 2010, says that when he worked at the company, YouTube was programming its algorithm to optimize for one key metric: keeping viewers on YouTube for as long as possible, or “watch time.” Chaslot says that conspiracy videos, like those about flat earth or autism and vaccines, were more likely to be recommended in YouTube’s recommendation algorithm because of the focus on watch time. In a statement to VICE News, a YouTube spokesperson says the company still considers watch time in its algorithm, but it now also focuses on another metric: user satisfaction. Chaslot has since created a tool, dubbed AlgoTransparency, that he says shows conspiracy videos on YouTube are some of the most likely to be recommended. VICE News meet with Chaslot to discuss how YouTube's algorithm works and how he plans to create another similar tool for the Facebook and Twitter algorithms.

Denial comes in all flavors. Some think the moon landing was staged, some think Tupac is alive, and others reject vaccines. If the United States learnt anything in the 2016 election, it's that social bubbles need to be broken down — so how do you reason with someone who ignores evidence or bends it to fit their worldview? This has been on Bill Nye's mind more and more since climate change denial has become a political issue rather than a scientific one. People can't change their minds instantly when their beliefs are ingrained, so it's not a matter of convincing them on the spot. Nye suggests working together towards scientific understanding by tactfully pointing out that perhaps this person is rejecting evidence because the alternative makes them uncomfortable. Understanding is a process, not a flip switch. Bill Nye's most recent book is Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World.

My name is Daniel from Texas. My question is how do you reach someone who is maybe a conspiracy theorist or someone who is anti-vaccines, someone who is staunchly scientifically illiterate and agree with them on what a good source of facts is? Thank you. Bill Nye: So Daniel. How do I recommend reasoning with a conspiracy theorist. Right now, the last couple of months I’ve been messing around with this idea of cognitive dissonance. This is to say you have a world view; You’re presented with evidence that conflicts with the world view; So you either have to change your world view, which is hard because you’ve lived your whole life with it, or you just dismiss the evidence and dismiss the authorities that may have provided the evidence. The authority could be a person or it could be a book. Or, excuse me, an article on the electric-internet-computer-machine. So you dismiss the evidence, so that you don’t have this discomfort or conflict in your mind—this dissonance. That’s what I’m working with right now, and apparently the way to overcome that is to say, “We’re all in this together, let’s learn about this together.” Present the conspiracy theorist with the idea that he or she may be rejecting evidence because it’s just so uncomfortable. And you’re in it together. We’re in it together. I’m uncomfortable too. But when it comes to moon landings, just ask the person how you would generate all that paperwork! The warehouses full of documentation that NASA created to make landings on the moon would overwhelm anybody trying to do it on the side. It would just be very difficult to print all that. And just understand it’s a process. Somebody who has a world view that’s inconsistent with evidence—and I may have some—it takes a while for you to turn around. Like the example of palm reading it’s not something that people reverse their ideas on immediately. It takes, in my experience it takes about two years for somebody to sort of look at palm reading, look at cold-reading or a tarot card reading for a while and then realize that these tarot card readers/palm readers are just taking information that you’ve given them, the client has given them, and feeding it back to you. It takes a long time and in the same way people who are anti-vaccine I think have just lost sight of the history. Vaccines—you know, part of the reason I’m able to be here talking with you is my grandparents did not die in 1918 during the Spanish flu when it is estimated 50 million people died—Twice as many people as were killed in combat in World War I died of this disease. If you go to old cemeteries you can see these tombstones of very young people who died of the flu. So people just lost sight of history, and we all tend to go, “Well look at the facts. Change your mind!” But it takes people a couple of years to change their mind. So my recommendation, Daniel, is: stick with it! You’ll get frustrated, the person will get frustrated, but present the idea of cognitive dissonance. This is my latest idea about a way to work together to a scientific understanding.

Did you know that Jesus wasn't crucified? It was his brother Isukiri, who 'casually' snuck onto the cross in his place. As it turns out, Jesus slipped away through Siberia and spent the rest of his life in Shingo, Japan. He stopped spreading the gospel and set up shop as a rice farmer. At least, that's what a man named Wado would have you believe. A proto-cult, failed in the incubator. Or perhaps just the excitement of an easily fooled mind.

Conspiracy theories involving powerful forces orchestrating global events have a long history. Ideas that Jews, Freemasons, the Illuminati, lizard people or aliens are secretly running world affairs have been around for centuries. But in the past year conspiracy theories have been taking centre stage in mainstream politics both in Europe and the United States and have also been linked to deadly crimes. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban made fears of a migrant invasion orchestrated by George Soros a central part of his election campaign last March. Then, in late October, prior to the midterm congressional and senate elections, US President Donald Trump alluded to a conspiracy theory that Soros was funding a migrant caravan travelling towards the US from Honduras. That was after the theory had been propagated by a host on Fox News and tweeted by a Republican senator. "George Soros is a useful character because he taps into this pre-existing far-right narrative about Jewish control," says Kelly Weill, who covers conspiracy theories and the far-right for The Daily Beast. "And throughout the years we've seen this anti-Semitism turn into a documented conspiracy theories." People feel very destabilised, I think, in our current news environment ... And when you offer conspiracy theory often that's a way of sort of simplifying the world. It gives people an easy answer in a world that feels scary and confusing. Kelly Weill, reporter, The Daily Beast Also in the US, both Cesar Sayoc, the man alleged to have sent a series of pipe bombs to figures on the mainstream left - including Soros, and Robert Bowers, who allegedly shot dead 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh last November, were animated by, according to their social media posts, conspiracy theories linked to the migrant caravan. Conspiracy theories about the migrant caravan had been seeded on anonymous chat forums that are well-known for white supremacist rhetoric well before they emerged into the mainstream. "Key to the growth of these series is them not just living on places like 4chan or Reddit but them making the leap to these more widely used social media platforms where they can garner a much wider audience," according to Shannon McGregor, assistant professor of Communications at the University of Utah. Social media has been key to the success of the breakout hit of conspiracy theorising in Donald Trump's America. The QAnon conspiracy theory was born over a year ago on the anonymous chat forum, 4chan when a mysterious poster identifying as 'Q' began to allude to current events relating to the Trump administration in cryptic comments referred to as 'crumbs'. YouTube hosts countless videos created by QAnon believers explaining the tenuous logic behind "proofs" of Q's prognostications, and dozens of private Facebook groups are dedicated to reinforcing the beliefs of those who subscribe to the theory. "What's interesting about QAnon is that it's not a passive experience for people who believe it." Travis View, cohost of the QAnon Anonymous Podcast says, "It's very gamified, it's very fun but the problem is that they don't actually really think it's a game, they think that they're actually genuinely uncovering some sort of secret from deep inside the government." In recent months, QAnon believers have been emerging into the open, appearing at Trump rallies. Celebrities such as Roseanne Barr have tweeted about the theory and in December, a California city council member became the first legislator to reference Q in a speech. The dangers of conspiracy theories leaking into the world of politics are obvious, especially when they exaggerate fears, prejudices and harmful divisions in society. However, it would be simplistic to blame the social media platforms and also wrong to stigmatise believers who, perhaps with some justification, have little trust in the mainstream media. "People feel very destabilised I think in our current news environment," says Weill. "They don't know what's real. And when you offer conspiracy theory often that's a way of sort of simplifying the world. It gives people an easy answer in a world that feels scary and confusing."
