    Mick West replied to the thread Debunked: Wernher von Braun confirmed that rockets can't leave earth.

    The V-2 was single stage, and something von Braun was largely responsible for. The V-2 was used by the US after the war as a sounding rocket, and took the first photo from space (65 miles up). So he would have been thinking of that type of thing....

    6000 feet. And N111NY was at 9,000 - I though it was still climbing, but no. But not too different if spotted at at long distance. I don't think that's it though. Too far away. However it's the closest plane on FR24

    Mick West replied to the thread Why are people called conspiracy theorists?.

    It's easy to point at people at one extreme or another and say if they meet a definition. It's a bit harder when people are in the middle, the grey area. Now we know that specific individual theories meet the definition of conspiracy theories....

    Would you then say someone is not a conspiracy theorist if they only believe in one or two conspiracy theories? I'd say the term "conspiracy theorist" can apply to people who do not have a habit of seeing conspiracies everywhere.

    This thread is about the usage of the term "conspiracy theorist", not the word "conspiracy". Off topic discussion on wars and the meaning of "conspiracy" moved to: https://www.metabunk.org/are-all-wars-conspiracies.t9794/
