Your article got me thinking. I believe in some stories that are called "conspiracy theories," though not he Wayfare story. I buy stuff from there and have never gotten a child along with my garden decorations. I find most "theories" are either ludicrous (e.g., flat earth) or have an element of fact followed by a big mischaracterization (e.g., vaccines). Many have been proven to be true (e.g., Watergate). I believe most stories that start "government covered up" and "business knew but covered it up." I'll have to think about why I don't have a problem deciding which stories might have an element of truth.
