Keeley deﬁnes a conspiracy theory as “a proposed explanation of some historical event (or events) in terms of the signiﬁcant causal agency of a relatively small group of persons-the conspirators-acting in secret (Keeley 1999, pg. 116).” Keeley seeks to answer the question of why conspiracy theories are unwarranted. His interest in the warrant of conspiracy theories focuses on ¬the unfalsifiability of conspiracy theories and how conspiracy theories are founded upon an extraordinarily large amount of skepticism.

Our government has been known to keep secrets - whether it is the current scandal going on between the Trump Administration and its ties to Russia or when Edward Snowden revealed that the government had been collecting the data of millions of Americans through their electronic devices. Many famous conspiracy theories that have been talked about for years have turned out to be more than true - with some pretty terrifying proof. These theories weren’t just theories.
