Default religious conspiracy theories

It was said to me in another thread that [it] is not a religion, therefore the subject is off topic. "It" being a particular topic popular with conspiracy theorists.

It just occurred to me that the poster may have been talking specifically about the thread in which this discussion took place. But I don't think so, since that thread was specifically about biblical numerology, not about religion generally. The broader interpretation also fits with other comments about this particular subject not belonging here.

So my question is, can anyone tell me the religious aspects - and not to mention CURRENT aspects (since that has been reinforced elsewhere as another criteria) of the following subjects taken from the heading of this forum?

... the Illuminati/One World Govt, chemtrails or faked moon landings? Find these, and more, here.

And can we get clarification on what constitutes the "and more"?

Religious beliefs are one of the few "true" conspiracy theories. Not that gods or spirits exist, but belief encourages belief in others-proof of the popular fallacy:-

"Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifyable hypotheses to destruction."

Your friends here obviously don't care enough to tell you, so I will.

It is spelled "falsifiable".

Friends here know that Mr Bulldog has some issues with spelling. It hasn't seemed to stop him from a career teaching the sciences at Universities.

That should read, "it doesn't seem to have stopped him..."

Picking up on typos is considered poor form around here, just so you know. We all make them every now and then and sooner or later you will too - please stop it.

People who brag about their own intellectual level and/or that of the group they hang out with, have got it coming.

It's every bit as graceless as a supermodel announcing how beautiful she and her friends are. Not to mention how clueless it is if they are just a bunch of garden variety models.

Sure. As soon the self-proclaimed superior intellects stop trying to convince me they should be kowtowed to.

No need to friggin' swear about it, either.

I, and everyone else here, will swear whensoever they please.

Mod Direction:
No more spell policing - and stop posting off topic.
