Do they accept that conspiracists themselves are part of the conspiracy? That seems to be the best way to test their deductive thinking: ask them what a fake conspiracist looks like.

I've tried this! They believe EVERYTHING! Just last Thursday, the one co-worker said (and I quote verbatim) "All conspiracy theories are coming true!" I wasn't talking to her, but couldn't help over-hearing a conversation she was having with her fellow believer. There's been no mention of the moon landings, but it would not surprise me to learn she believes they were faked. I'm not about to get into it with her.

What kind of place do you work in?!
