But have been a SM fits, but debunking911.com features the use
of at least 277 instances where the word "conspiracy" is used,
coupled with the same words: conspiracy theorists, conspiracy
theories, conspiracy sites, conspiracy stories...

This is quite funny.

http://debunking911.com/links.htm

features a piece title "911 Case Study: Pentagon Flight 77"
where a 3D animation allegedly explains all the holes in the
"conspiracy theorists" ' theories about the Pentagon.

Hilarious to say the least: half a dozen electric poles are
knocked down and torn apart by the plane's wings, the latter
remaining pristine all the way to the Pentagon wall where the
plane simply vaporizes and disappears.

Hmm...

Nevermind that the hole the plane is supposed to produce in the
wall does not match the in situ documented observations.

But the best on this site tells it all:

http://debunking911.com/conspiracy.htm

Titled "The Real Conspiracy", it starts with:

"What a real conspiracy looks like. Real conspiracies have very
few players and even then, they are usually exposed. Enron,
Watergate, Iran/Contra and the rest have few people involved and
someone always comes out to blow the whistle."

Two sentences, one contradiction:

"usually exposed" means, in plain English, "not always" and,
thus, there are conspiracies that are never, or not yet,
exposed.

It is clearly in conflict with the next idea "someone _always_
comes to blow the whistle."

The authors of this website, obviously have not visited:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_syphilis_experiment

"The Tuskegee syphilis experiment was an infamous clinical study
conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the U.S. Public Health
Service to study the natural progression of untreated syphilis
in rural African American men who thought they were receiving
free health care from the U.S. government."

Fourty years for crying out loud.

"The Tuskegee Syphilis Study, cited as arguably the most
infamous biomedical research study in U.S. history (...)'"'

This just proves that conspiracies can last a long time before
they get discovered.

If you think that this was then, and that now this wouldn't be
possible, think again.

The UFO paradigm has been going on for, what?, 66 years now, if
we count from 1947?

"Conspiracy theory" has no place in any serious discussion.
