Conspiracy theories that have come true.
Are there any? If there are, how bad did the nut jobs twist the story in order to make it fit their reptilians taking over the world bullshit?

RE: Conspiracy theories that have come true.
The CIA was once thought to be "not real" by the larger public. Same with the NSA.

At one point the people investigating the Iran-Contra scandal were conspiracy nuts.

There were people who claimed that government was spying on our emails and phone calls before the wiki leaks and snowden business.

For a long time the political espionage the CIA was caring out in Latin america (assassinating world leaders and staging military coups, ect) was thought to be unfounded conspiracy theory.

Essentially right before someone blows the lid off a big scandal, the moment before that happens, they are a nut job conspiracy theorist. Then they are a whistle blower, a Pulitzer prize journalist, a modern day hero. Its just like the "terrorist or freedom fighter's" conundrum.

RE: Conspiracy theories that have come true.
The thing is, no matter how close a conspiracy nut gets to guessing a real conspiracy.
It is still just a out of the arse guess if they can provide no valid evidence for their belief in the first place.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Um...Starting in the 1930s the government performed painful and unnecessary experiments on african american men who had syphilis but were purposefully not told. This lasted a few decades. Does that count?

Yes, but you need a source.

This is pretty much how I feel about it. If I make the claim on a hunch that we are going to be invaded by Martians in three months and it actually happens, it was still a baseless and irrational claim when it was proposed.
