Why do reasonably intelligent people embrace bizarre beliefs? Why are outlandish conspiracy theories so eagerly championed by otherwise "normal" people? We'll range widely, from the long-held "Flat Earth" belief to the certainty that the govenment lied about Pearl Harbor, the space program, and the 9/11 attacks. We'll finish with one of the most bizarre of all: QAnon, the movement that claims that most Democratic leaders are organized pedophiles and that all too many former presidents have been involved! We'll ask why, who, and how as we try to make sense of what may be the most dangerous epidemic of our time.
