Rebunking Conspiracy Theories

Keaton Patti knows that the only thing that can be truly known is that nothing can be known, and he knows that he can’t know that. Rebunking Conspiracy Theories examines the claims of conspiracy theorists and debunkers, and then delivers new rebunked alternatives to possibly explain these puzzles of uncertainty. For to say with complete assurance that something wasn’t a part of a conspiracy is just as extreme as saying it certainly was. Ruling out nothing automatically leaves the truth still in play.
