Speaking of troll and off topic remarks.....
I at least provide information and back up my comments. Did you read up on the cases mentioned in the journal?

Usually I don't feed the trolls, but hey, I'm bored this morn.

Maybe you can show me where the term "conspiracy theorist" is in your link, because I can't find it.

As I suspected, you can't find it either, because it isn't there, but thanks . LOL Hence, my remark about you you making a nonsensical argument about the OP's post.

I said "read my post" - didn't say the link now did I? Now who's laughing.

(edited to add the actual post I responded to before it was changed)

I did read your nonsensical post, do you have a point?

You folks 'splitting hairs' and 'duking it out' about the topic being conspiracy 'theorist' or 'theory' -- that is pretty thin gravy. Like the song says about 'Love and Marriage'; you can't have one without the other. :132:

Thank you - I thought my explanation about it was rather obvious.

We are talking the origin of the term "conspiracy theorist" and that label here, not conspiracy theory.

It's been explained - theorist talking of conspiracy theory is a conspiracy theorist. Not a new concept and certainly not invented in 1960's when conspiracy theory is mentioned in the '50's and 1870's and multiple decades prior to that. Might consider it a reinvention if you wish.

Maybe I can make this easier for you.

When was the actual term "conspiracy theorist" coined?

Hint: check the op's post.

You are missing the point and I have explained myself. Conspiracy theorists existed well before 1960's so the term actually existed. Put two and two together.

No, you are missing the point. this whole thread is about answering that question.

Well, it's a pretty dull topic. I think the slightly off topic comments have improved the thread greatly...! [icon_lol2.gif] :up:

First one must understand the definition of "theorist" and then put it into practice.

One who discusses theories around conspiracies would be a conspiracy theorist. It's actually pretty easy and basic.
