"Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Einstein
Conspiracy theories are no different than scientific theories. They both are used to explain observed phenomena, and are created to attract attention to the phenomena so that the phenomena will be studied.
Hate towards conspiracy theories is no different than hate towards heretics. Early religions often slaughtered, killed, and maimed to contrary theories of how the world functioned. Human nature doesn't change, so while conspiracy theory culture is meant to raise awareness of problems, be careful who's awareness you bring it to.
