                                                CONSPIRACY THEORY (Wiki)

Clare Birchall at King's College London describes conspiracy theory as a "form of popular knowledge or interpretation".[b] By acquiring the title 'knowledge', conspiracy theory is considered alongside more 'legitimate' modes of knowing.[c] The relationship between legitimate and illegitimate knowledge, Birchall claims, is far closer than common dismissals of conspiracy theory would have us believe.[25] Other popular knowledge might include alien abduction narratives, gossip, some new age philosophies, religious beliefs, and astrology.

MY  QUESTION: Might it be possible to place subjective probabilities on the possible truth of particular conspiracy theories? These can be regarded as imaginative hypotheses.
