Legal documents are filled with crimes that are the result of conspiracies, with "conspiracy" explicitly mentioned.  This is quite frequent.

The secret societies, such as Freemasonry, are recognized as a conspiracy against the Catholic Church.

Pius XI in his encyclical about Atheistic Communism mentioned that the silence on the part of the non-Catholic press of the world was a "conspiracy".

As well, evidence is evidence, and we should NOT shun the idea of conspiracy when faced with evidence. For instance, it is on film that just seconds before JFK was shot, someone called off the security agent that was standing on the specially designed back bumper of the car. He is shown walking, looking behind him with puzzled looks and gestures about what is going on, and that's when the assassination occurred, and had the man not been called off the car, he would have likely taken the bullet instead of the President, because the agents were designed for physical protection.

Conspiracy theories come with the territory.  By definition, all traditional Catholics apprehend an insidious Marxist-Masonic conspiracy where the Church was infiltrated, over the course of about fifty to seventy-five years, by actual, proper agents of the enemy, who pulled their levers at Vatican II.  Probably the most significant conspiracy in the history of mankind after the deicidal conspiracy of the Sanhedrin.
Thank you. I've thought this for a long time, but never could express it clearly.

Yes, I agree that to a certain extent all traditional Catholics believe in one huge conspiracy theory, but I would bet that if someone was a Flat Earther, they are probably also a 9/11 conspiracist, etc or will become one.

Perhaps they will. Nuts can also go for things that are reasonable.  It's a fallacy to think otherwise. Go with the evidence.

Look up "WTC7" on YouTube. No building can collapse in 5 seconds in its own footprint merely because of a few fires burned here and there on a few floors without a plane colliding with it.

For sure.  I am not putting all of these on equal footing with respect to whether they are believable.  Just that they are all conspiracy theories.

Basically what the principle comes down to is....if one accepts one conspiracy theory, one is well open to the possibility, and even probability, of others.

I still want to know why every government in the world has, for centuries, spent all those resources to make sure no one ever went to Antarctica.

I don't object to flat earth except when people try to shovel it as a doctrine

Imho that is too soft, flat-earth promotion of any kind should be prohibited, flat-earthers should be ridiculed, then suspended, then banned.
