Why You So Liddat #7 - Who Run The World? Lizards!

Professor Christopher French, Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit, Goldsmiths, University of London

Why You So Liddat #7 - Who Run The World? Lizards!

Why You So Liddat is a show that explores the mind, our behaviour, and why we are the way we are. There are people out there that believe that elite lizards rule the world, that we faked the moon landings, and that the Earth is actually flat. Those conspiracy theories are harmless but there are conspiracy theories that can cause actual harm. Believing that vaccines cause autism can create a health epidemic. Believing that global warming is a myth stops us from trying to save the planet. So, why do some people believe in conspiracy theories and how can we deal with them? Chris French enlightens us and talks to us about the psychology of conspiracy theories.
