  • The Internet is like a breeding ground for conspiracy theories.

  • well some are juste stupid and funny, others

  • promote ignorance and an unhealthy distrust.

  • So we went to the Kurzgesagt lab and developed a foolproof system

  • to destroy not all but a lot of

  • conspiracy theories. It's really simple, just ask yourself:

  • Does the theory affect really rich and powerful people?

  • Is the answer yes, OK, then it's most likely... Not true

  • Let's test it on three examples

  • Number one: There is an easy cure for cancer but it's withheld because

  • it would destroy the profits of pharmaceutical companies.

  • Do really rich people die of cancer, like might enough say

  • the former CEO of Apple? Yes?

  • There is no suppressed cure for cancer.

  • Number two: Chemtrails, the theory that airplanes spray chimicals in the air for

  • population control or some of the crazy reason.

  • Do really powerful people breathe air? Do Obama or Putin breathe air? Yes

  • Chemtrails are not a thing

  • Number three: Apocalyptic conspiracy theories

  • The world will end soon because of the Antichrist, Mayas

  • Aliens, someone say that. Do really rich and powerful people ignore the

  • soon to be upon us and a very evident apocalypse? Yes?

  • The world will not end soon.

  • This obviously doesn't works for every conspiracy theories out there

  • But it does works for some of the most stupids one's. So the next time someone tries to

  • convince you that Illuminati puts stuff in you water, just show him this video

  • and maybe be a more selective about your friends on Facebook.

The Internet is like a breeding ground for conspiracy theories.
