(Newser) – A filmmaker who persistently claims the moon landings were a hoax is beginning to look like a hoaxer himself, the Examiner reports. Bart Sibrel has produced documentaries labeling the Apollo landing a fake, but a new video has surfaced proving he deliberately mismatched NASA's audio and video footage to mislead viewers. Sibrel is notorious for stalking astronauts, and once got punched in the jaw by a furious Buzz Aldrin for blocking his path and calling him "a coward, a liar, and a thief."

acerbus80 - It's called "Deductive Reasoning" and has proved lethal on more than one occasion. It's the sort of logic that can take Darwin, Nietzsche and a 3000 year old symbol for living a good life, and 'logically' come up with the Nazi doctrine. It is the worst kind of delusional.

I'm not sure about an actual disorder that can be reliably diagnosed, but the common thread among conspiracy theorists is to first come to a conclusion, find circumstantial pieces of evidence to support it, decry any contradictory evidence as fake, any overwhelming proof against said theory as part of the conspiracy, and proclaim all who do not believe or criticize the theory as blind, ignorant, brainwashed sheep.
