- 19% (yes, 19 percent!) of Americans believe that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job, with another 22% remaining neutral, i.e. unwilling to either endorse or refute the theory.
- 24 percent agreed that President Obama was not born in the United States, with 24% neutral – hmm, this one seems to fit some political partisanship!
- The fake conspiracies were recognized by 17% and believed by 10% of respondents!
Overall, the researchers found that “almost the entire sample said they had heard of at least one of the conspiratorial narratives they were asked about, and over 55 percent agreed with at least one of them.”
The researchers explain the results by two behavioral psychology predispositions. First, the need to feel in control pushes us to draw conclusions in spite of weak evidence. I wonder if our new awareness of this shortcoming can reduce our gullibility – hmm, probably not! Second, the conspiracies feed our natural attraction towards the universal struggles between good and evil. May the Force be with you!
