Wow - I totally spaced out and thought I was replying to ATF.
And yet you still gave a good response, as always. I take it your original post (the one I replied to) was facetious.
Not a fan of theism? Interesting. But at the same time one of the faithful. Hmmmmmmm
I'm glad I made that error. More food for thought.
Yes, it was sarcastic, or at least baiting to ATF

Faithful to what? That is the question. Can you be faithful to a verb? You can, but only if you objectify it.

Well...let's put it this way.
I think that most conspiracy folks would fit into the groups above to which you refer, but I don't that most folks above are conspiracy types.
Like....if one were a racist he likely voted with the GOP in the last two elections. But I wouldn't necessarily say most GOP voters are racist.
If that makes sense.
IT makes perfect sense. Not all science deniers are conspiracy buffs. But how many science deniers, that arent consciously benefiting from the conventional energy sectors (arent workers or lobbyiests or investors), arent conspiracy buffs? What percentage? It has to be small. Or maybe not. Thats what I would like to know.

Do you anyone well who denies climate change? Why do they?

Ok, but what about the part where it isn't applicable (or reasonable) to judge these thoughtless folks (and their thought process) by modern standards?
Doesn't their internal logic/personal experiences make it ok for them to think and believe in the way they do?
Absolutely! Which I am fine with as long as they dont make the error of assuming I buy into their logic. I am fine with cultural relativism (as long as it is NOT in my backyard).

HUGH,
One more observation, those gays with strong convictions about the normalcy of their homosexuality usually keep supporting gay causes in a very explicit manner and form a tight group among themselves wherever they go with the members of this gay clique rushing to defend each other or targetting/ridiculing anyone they see as a threat to them.
These trends are clearly visible on this thread.

I don't go by opinions nor do I seek support from the majority.

Even if the majority says that so and so thing is true or false as the case may be, well, the truth might be just the opposite.

To be fair and just, I typed that bit about Hugh being gay since his vibes, style of writing, stresses, guilt, denials and camouflage make it pretty clear to me that he's more gay than straight.

Besides, Hugh also gave me a further hint by revealing many months ago that Jamaican men have huge penises as seen in public toilets. This clearly reveals that he visits public loos to watch penises and to pick up guys.

Finally, many months ago, I'd made it clear to you one day that on that particular day Hugh's posts were radiating strong vibes, the odor being so offensive and pulls that it made me quite ill. That foul odor radiating from dear Hugh's vibes was the unmistakable smell of sexual perversion. The odor was sickening.

There's a strong Force of the supramental kind descending into me with its characteristic golden hue and the typical experiences it confers as it descends. The pressure generated is powerful and my body is radiating the golden light. I'm swaying. Need to rest. These spontaneous yogic experiences are still continuing even after leaving my master. There's a reason concerning the yogic experiences...a shocking reason to this.

I've wondered this before and researched it too. And I know my share of climate deniers.

Mostly they are concerned over how it would affect their wallets in the short-term. Much like the tea baggers worry about gov't spending (that is, other than DoD and their Medicare/Soc sec checks).

I still don't think the correlation between deniers and conspiracy types is nearly as high as you suggest.

The GOP is full of deniers. Buffs are a relatively exclusive club.

If you can START to fill in those questions, then you are on the entrance way to logically sound scientific thinking.
There is no theory here, the idea is that the "official story" is bs, easily refutable.

Guns are merely an object. Your interpretation of what they mean - their symbolic meaning is a cognitive act.
Independence implies freedom from something (one could just as easy interpret guns as a symbol of dependance)- its all in your head according to ones world view.
If your world view is that the world is an unsafe place, then obviously you would interpret gun ownership as a way to make that place safer by giving yourself a degree of independence from existing conditions. If your world view is that the world is a safe place, then one could equally interpret gun ownership as an unnecessary complication into your life, and therefore a burden and a dependence upon a crutch to make you feel better.
Its all about creating predictability of one's "world" around them. And that "world" is more in one's head than anywhere else, IMO.
They are a symbol of autonomy for many people, the idea if taking care of ones own security not relying on others for safety.

Republicans embrace conspiracy theory that DHS is buying up ammo
James Inhofe and Jim Jordan believe the Obama Administration is trying to curb access to bullets
http://www.salon.com/2013/04/30/republicans_e...
A conspiracy theory is getting renewed life among Republicans who claim that the Obama administration, specifically the Department of Homeland Security, is buying up ammunition in order to thwart gun owners by taking over the market.
Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., and Rep. Frank Lucas, both Republicans from Oklahoma, introduced a bill last week to crack down on the alleged practice......
....Even the NRA debunked these kinds of conspiracy theories in a press release last summer, saying that the DHS buying ammo is perfectly normal:“Much of the concern stems from a lack of understanding of the law enforcement functions carried about by officers in small federal agencies. These agents have the power to make arrests and execute warrants, just like their better-known counterparts at agencies like the FBI.”.....
It is not a conspiracy theory.

The dhs is putting in purchase orders for a large volume of ammo, more than usual.

They are also requesting woman and baby targets.

There is an ammo shortage, that is a fact.

It isnt denying a changing climate it is denying the cause of it.
And when i post some facts you attack the messenger, as if Tucker Carlson could ever be a libertarian.
