Why
The purpose of this community is to discredit false claims of conspiracy, prove truthful claims of conspiracy, or just come closer to the truth, where possible. Other than the stated general purpose, this community and its rules are currently mutable. Member input and suggestions are welcome.

How
Members who have found or hatched a conspiracy theory or claim that they would like to have assistance in analyzing post the claim, along with their analysis. Please don't post wild or well-known theories that can be neither proven nor disproven. If a claim is not backed up with verifiable facts and/or sound logic, it will be deleted at the discretion of the moderators. For claims posted, any other members interested in doing so provide either support or negation of a posted claim through use of either credible factual sources (cite all sources), logic or both.

Before You Post
Before posting any conspiracy claims or theories, please check snopes dot com (or any other generally reliable debunking source) to make sure that they have not already satisfactorily investigated the claim. This is to help prevent the posting of ridiculous claims and/or claims that may be common knowledge to seasoned debunkers.

Though the analyzation of political conspiracy claims is encouraged, this community is not above the investigation of the existance of aliens, sasquatch or even Nessie at this point, simply because the community is so small, and because variety is nice. But if you are going to float a wild claim, please make sure you've done your research, and stick to facts.
