People Who Believe in Conspiracy Theories See Patterns That Aren't There
Many people embrace beliefs not backed by science. But there’s a difference between following your horoscope and believing in conspiracy theories, like 2Pac being alive and well. It turns out that conspiracy theorists who can’t let go of their favorite rapper also are likely to see “signs” in random events and detect nonexistent messages in art.

Building on research that conspiracy theories are tied to how people detect patterns, scientists at the Free University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands studied the relationship between our perception of patterns and these not-so-logical beliefs. Learning how this works could help us understand the extent to which our beliefs influence what we see.
