I'm not going to get into a debate on the specifics of such things here, but lets remember that every major event sprouts conspiracy theories. Absolutely people should be free to investigate this stuff, but if you do so please make sure you are researching it from multiple angles and viewpoints.

Definition of conspire

verb: make secret plans jointly to commit an unlawful or harmful act.

Origin: from Latin conspirare 'agree, plot', from con- 'together with' + spirare 'breathe'

source: http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/conspire


in other words... to conspire is to "breathe together" in secret to plan something harmful.
the event in boston was harmful and it was definitely planned in secret.

the question is "who planned it?"

Let me clarify that just because something is a conspiracy theory doesn't mean it isn't true and it doesn't mean it is. All I was promoting was healthy skepticism. The term was not meant in ridicule.

I too am promoting healthy skepticism.



smile Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain frown



frown Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories smile



smile Seeing is believing... Believing is seeing frown



frown Weapons of Mass Distraction smile



smile The rabbit hole is a bottomless pit with nothing but dirt down there frown



frown Help. I've fallen and I can't get up smile



smile Don't beLIEve a word I say... Do your own research frown



Even the bible approves and applauds doubt, double-checking, skeptics and study.

ACTS 17:11

"Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica,
for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true."
