    Conspiracy theory vs socialist logic

    The index of the Socialist Party has a lot of articles about conspiracy theories

    Conspiraloons and the word ‘theory’ don’t go together. Don’t dignify their nonsense with the term ‘theory.’

    That is the title of the article, therefore the socialist standard should have used the word nonsense. The question is: What is a theory ? Some theories are nonsense

    In science, a theory is a system which incorporates proven facts and evidence and is therefore adopted as a valid way of thinking and explanation.

    For instance, tracing the roots of the Etruscan language to one or another equally possible alternatives; one has one theory, the other another theory. But both have got to have reasons behind them which are valid in terms of analysis, linguistics, etc.

    Creationism and flat earthism are not theories, because both have long since been disproven. Hence they have no validity.
