May be because a lot of them are not at all "theories"...

people like answers, they hate it when they cannot explain something. Similar to religion, they assume things and hope they are right.

People like mysterious stories. Personally, I, somehow these theories are not very interesting. I'd rather read a book.  Grin

People are all different, so the reasons for them believing in conspiracies cover a broad range of factors. In general, though, people tend to believe in conspiracies because of helplessness.I found that belief in conspiracy theories is strongly linked to insecurity about employment, alienation, lack of interpersonal trust, and minority status ...
The formula is simple. There is no such thing as a one sided argument or a one sided story. There is always a cobtradoctory side to everything. And i think that it is part and our nature to be inquisitive.

I think people believe in conspiracy theories because of the thrill and excitement involve in finding out the what ifs of this world.  It also has something to do with the fact that as humans, we are very inquisitive people and such ideas make you think in loops and so this gives you that jolt of energy you need everyday to keep on going.

Because it's always fun to believe in something new that is clearly logical. People have so many beliefs which eventually come out as false, so why should we believe anything we do believe in now?

With conspiracy theories do you mean the silly stories which are published by mainstream media?

I think people choose to believe in some of these theories because it makes them feel like they have a one up over others. They know stuff other sheep don't and this empowers them. Anyway, that's what I have observed.

maybe because some conspiracy theories seems believable for them, and they rather choose to believe it instead... either they are deceived or they just playing ignorant about it..because there some powerful enough that conspires to make them believe and make the theories seem believable.. now a days very hard to distinguish between true and fake... and what is genuine...

I think it's so much more interesting to live believing that footage from the film is happening around) when a person doesn't have a saturated life of his own - he starts looking for colors around

Some people probably prefer to think for themselves instead of simply believing what's in the media.

Some individuals may have a tendency to find such theories attractive. The crux of the matter is that conspiracists are not really sure what the true explanation of an event is—they are simply certain that the “official story” is a cover-up.

It makes them feel good, as though they know more than the rest of the world.

Maybe it is because some conspiracy theories has some point and is also possible. It's interesting to know about conspiracy theories because some are imaginable but possible. Some conspiracy theories might be true or might be not. That's why some cases are still mystery to people, and some people even make up more conspiracy theories out of other theories.

Yes, because there are so many gaps that are easy to fill with similar theories. Although I'm not saying that there was no conspiracy)

I can understand believing a conspiracy like 911, because there's so much data on how things went down. But the worse is when so many below average people start filling up the gap for things with their bias bad logic. It messes up legit conspiracies.

I guess its because some people just lack knowledge about those theories. They don't confirm or base it on a scientifical theory, but since those conspiracies have sense, people just take it.
