    Conspiracists - how do you handle them?

    You're trying to have a nice intellectual discussion about current events or whatever, and all of a sudden:
    "So what about World Trade Center 7?"
    "The government owns you, why do you think your name is in all capital letters in your social, license, birth certificate, tombstone?"
    "Why wasn't JP Morgan on the Titanic?"
    "The federal reserve was made for the old money"


    What do you do?

                I speak to them in a calm and rational manner and provide evidence as to why their hypotheses may be incorrect. They in turn accept my logical reasoning and thank me.

                  That's too rational and mature for me

                    I encourage it as much as I can. I tell them I fly airplanes, and that chem-trails are real because I do spray ops on a weekly basis.

                        I'm a fence sitter.

                        You'd have be completely retarded to not realize that pretty much every government agency in the world is blatantly lying through their teeth; but a lot of conspiracies are so far fetched it takes a special kind of idiot to believe them.

                          I usually tell them to have a conversation about sex and travel, but one friend. This one friend. 747-400 pilot. Under 30, known him since he was 6 years old when we played in the same football (soccer) team. He is adamant no plane hit the pentagon. He's middle of the road intelligence, and has no idea about what sort of liberties are being taken with our privacy and what-not, but from a purely piloting perspective, he's totally convinced. Bugs me.

                            idiot is idiot. But can you counter any of that?

                              Turn 360 degrees and walk away, but in a seriousness the federal reserve is real as conspiracists say it is that is an observable fact.
