how come a lot of people think that every time a national or international disaster happens, that it's faked.
I think it's a bit silly myself.

Lies fill the voids in their lives?

Or they could be cynical.

You got some specifics for us to argue about?

Almost everything today is easier to fake, like UFO pics, or BF pics.

It's just a thang

Most of people today are fake and make one think that their 'work' is fake too. At least that's how i see it.

I think that Sir Smoke aLot brings up a valid point.
Everytime something major happens in the World, people are quick to find a way to spin it as a staged event, even before any real information is available.
Why is it that some people automatically switches into conspiracy mode ?

It gives them power? If something major happened just as it's portrayed, people don't feel in control. If that major event is portrayed as a secret conspiracy that no one is suppose to know about, those that do know about it will then feel more in control and more powerful as a result.

Because the truth is sometimes inconvenient for them. We live in a culture these days that automatically has to assign blame for things and people will put the blame on people and institutions that they do not trust themselves or feel that have an nefarious motive for certain events. It's why 9/11 has so many "truthers" and other things. Some people cannot comprehend that a bunch of organized and determined individuals with an extremist view about what is considered to be an affront to their God exploited lax security measures aboard aircraft and used them as weapons against thousands of innocent people. To me, they cannot comprehend that mass murder can be committed by lone individuals but by those who have (apparent) agendas and reasons for doing so.

You look at the conspiracies that have popped up around MH17 for example. A number of people do not believe that it was an accidental shootdown by some inexperienced soldiers. Russia is busy absolving itself of any blame (perceived or otherwise) because no one wants blood on their hands. Russia has already pretty much turned the world against itself for what happened in Crimea and it doesn't want the deaths of nearly 300 innocent people on their hands. And to do this, they produce "alternate" theories for Russian nationalists and people who believe that "the West" is somehow evil and it's "mass media" are lying to us all.

You must obey the law, always, not only when they grab you by your special place.

I think a better word for some of the things you're talking about is "staged".  The events are real, but not really spontaneous or as described.

MH17 is an example.  The facts do not match the narrative, they contradict the narrative.

We all know what you believe, Babes, but the question here is why?  You keep claiming that facts back you up, but I can't remember you ever producing a fact here, just your opinions.

Mostly cause the powers that be lie. Constantly. Whatever the situation, it usually ends up with them having more power. Then you look at things like how they intentionally gave black people syphilis, or how they intentionally gave thousands in Europe AIDS tainted blood, with no one getting in any trouble in either case.

Everyone knows how our elected constantly lie. No one has a problem believeing that. Right up till their world view is questioned over it. Then somehow known liars become honest, and those who question become "silly".

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

Hi Swanny

If you have not been paying attention to the photos of the wreckage of MH 17, I'm really sorry, but that's a personal problem.  If you are not aware that Ukraine confiscated the ATC tapes quickly, I'm really sorry.

I understand that western media has gone silent on the matter, even after the days of passionate feelings and claims of Russian involvement, and if your only source of information is NBC, CBS or other western media, I really do understand your being in the dark.  You are probably not aware that even the BBC published a story/video early on, and then quickly retracted it, most likely because the story actually revealed facts that did not fit in with the official narrative.

You may enjoy living in the relative dark places created by the mainstream media, but I prefer to read a lot.  You may prefer to reach conclusions before a complete investigation as the mainstream media and US government do, but I prefer the reverse order.  Investigate thoroughly, propose possible scenarios, and then finally reach a conclusion.

Have a good weekend. :tu:

I've seen plenty of photos, but you seem to be the only one claiming these photos are evidence of anything other than a SAM attack.  I've seen no evidence as to whether the accident investigators have been denied the ATC tapes, either.

I think it is because people want to believe that everything happens for a reason and that things are controlled. Chaos and disorder scare people. People want to think that things are not chaotic, random, and beyond human control.

Been Googling and found this statement from the Dutch Safety Board which suggests that they have the ATC data:
The report will contain the first factual findings arising from the investigation based on various sources, such as the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder (the black boxes), air traffic control data, radar and satellite images. This data is currently being compared and will subsequently be analysed.
