Everybody's entitled to their own opinion. Obviously there's some of us in here do not believe in conspiracy theory and others believe in it. So I think you know, everybody's entitled to I believe in aliens. Do you really believe in aliens? Are you serious? Like my Yes. 100% they built the goddamn pyramids? Do you think people actually built the damn pyramids? Do you think human beings picked up like 40,000 pound stones and stack them in a perfect trial? It's insane. Oh, my mom's talking and Maddie Maddie on the pyramids, they have pictures right? helicopters, submarines, everything UFOs that and that's, that's legit. Like that is legit. You go there, and you can see it. And you can see the sun god and all these things. And when you look at this stuff, it's like, I don't believe with the universe as big as it is that we are here alone. No way. I agree. It is too big. We are literally like a grain of salt smaller than a grain of salt in the universe. And me and hey, I sometimes will put on you know, shows that talk about the universe. And you know, Neil deGrasse Tyson goes through it all. I get scared. I'm like, I want to shut the shut off. I don't want to think about this. You know, like, I don't want to know that I might get probed in 10 years like I'm good. You know, even the History Channel, ancient aliens. Yep. Ancient Aliens is a great one. And even like, well, it's funny, like Bob lazaar. And that whole thing, right? He was considered a conspiracy theorist for many, many years. And then finally this year, the government came out and they were like, Yeah, it's true. Like we have a lot of the technology that he's talking about and totally, like, vindicated him and all that and like for years, they made his life, absolute hell and pin him as a conspiracy theorist, but 100% as big as the universe is, there's no way we're the only ones. So I have a question for Dr. D, though, from a psychological perspective. Why do some of us believe in conspiracy theories? Is it something that we kind of try to latch on to for a moment of truth or is it
