    im sure if any ex detectives or police would be able to confirm you cannot with absolutely confirm its not a terrorist attack within 1 hour of it happening....simply not enough time to rule out all different motives/possibilities.

    Give it a rest.

    It has been clearly identified as not terrorist related. The police have released the driver pending further investigation. Do you really think that would happen if the driver was a terrorist?

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Exactly. Absolute slaver.

    I’m confident the majority of car crashes can be ruled out as non-terrorist related within an hour. Even those that have involved non-whites behind the wheel.

    Read this, I can imagine you tick many of the boxes regarding the type of person described by the researchers: https://psychcentral.com/blog/archiv...-believe-them/


    We argue that people high in need for uniqueness should be more likely than others to endorse conspiracy beliefs because conspiracy theories represent the possession of unconventional and potentially scarce information. […] Moreover, conspiracy theories rely on narratives that refer to secret knowledge (Mason, 2002) or information, which, by definition, is not accessible to everyone, otherwise it would not be a secret and it would be a well-known fact.

    People who believe in conspiracy theories can feel “special,” in a positive sense, because they may feel that they are more informed than others about important social and political events. […]

    Our findings can also be connected to recent research demonstrating that individual narcissism, or a grandiose idea of the self, is positively related to belief in conspiracy theories. Interestingly, Cichocka et al. (2016) found that paranoid thought mediates the relationship between individual narcissism and conspiracy beliefs.

    The current work suggests, however, that need for uniqueness could be an additional mediator of this relationship. Indeed, previous work has shown that narcissism is positively correlated with need for uniqueness (Emmons, 1984) and here we showed that need for uniqueness is related to conspiracy belief.

    I think you do plenty enough "out the box" thinking to cover all of us.

    So the driver gets out of the crashed car and says any of:

    fell asleep at the wheel
    swerved to avoid another car/person
    brakes failed
    was speeding and lost control
    Foot slipped
    skidded on poor surface

    and you STILL wouldn’t believe them? You would know there must be some kind of ulterior, new world order, machavellian scheme to knock down some pedestrians?

    Sometimes the media story is just the actual story.

    Did you get a 'Conspiracy Theorist's Catchphrase' book for your birthday or summat?

    When you've finished it, you should try 'Voodoo Histories' by David Aaronovitch.

    I think you're confusing "out of the box" with "off the planet".

    If your worldview's accurate, how come the all-seeing all-knowing all-powerful Thought Police haven't come to take YOU away, O fearless Revealer of Truth?
