Re: anti-conspiracy ppl who can rationalize anything: what's the craziest you've heard?

The phrase "I can't believe.." comes up a lot.
"If ______ was the case, that would mean ____, and I CAN'T BELIEVE that's really going on"
As if a person's belief projects forward a reality that allows their world to survive. Is this like a child who closes his eyes so nobody can see him?
Many of us are operating on general assumptions of goodwill among society. For many, they need to think positively in order to maintain their sanity.
