Conspiracy theorists are setting up their own dating sites

Conspiracy theorists are setting up their own dating sites

If you have ever been upset after scrolling through Tinder and seeing pro-vaccine, pro-globe earth, and pro-moon landing messages, then we have some good news for you.

Conspiracy theorists are getting their own dating site so they'll never have to worry about accidentally making the beast with two backs with someone who believes in reality.

One dating site set up especially for conspiracy theorists is SchwurbelTreff.

The site launched in Germany last month and they told Vice they already saw 1,500 tin-foil hat wearing users sign up in just three weeks.

They also have to reveal which conspiracy theories they believe in, including coronavirus, QAnon, and the New World Order.

Users are also required to disclose what news sources they consume, the number of jabs they've had for Covid-19, and how they think the future of the world will unfold in future decades.

The site was set up by a dude who calls himself Captain Future (yes, really).

Captain Future, real name Michael Bründel, is a well known German conspiracy theorist who advocated against lockdowns to stem the spread of Coronavirus.

He explained to Vice what possessed him to set up a dating site for conspiracy theorists.

"You wouldn't understand each other [when] you look at the world so differently," Bründel said.

"The different opinions on Corona have broken many old friendships and relationships, but often also created new ones."

He then brought up 'shedding', which is a load of utter poppycock that claims vaccinated people posed a threat to the unvaccinated by harmfully 'shedding' the vaccine.

Because it's not like vaccines eradicated things like Smallpox, which has virtually died out thanks to inoculations.

Beats us how that would happen if vaccines 'shed' like dogs.

He believes 'lateral thinkers will soon be mainstream' because 'no one wants to admit they were wrong'.

"The division will be over when the truth is mainstream and those responsible have been brought to justice," he said.

Oof, okay then.

On the flip side, conspiracy theorist dating sites have caused concern over at the Amadeu Antonio Siftung, an anti-extremism group in Berlin.

Researcher for the group Nicholas Potter told Vice the conspiracy ideologies touted by people like Bründel pose a risk to both themselves and society.

He said they could 'alienate people from their social environments, as friends and family refuse to accept their increasingly wild claims about chemtrails, 5G and chips in vaccinations'.

He added: "They then seek comfort among like-minded people. This can lead to a spiral of radicalisation."

In the words of Brooklyn 99's Jake Peralta: "Cool, cool, cool, cool, cool. No doubt, no doubt."
