Why do people get wrapped up in conspiracies?

“Do not call conspiracy
    everything this people calls a conspiracy;
do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it.
The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear,
he is the one you are to dread. Isaiah 8:12-13
People love conspiracies because it justifies their lack of faith in anything.  If nothing can be trusted, then they have just cause not to trust anything.
Conspiracies create fear and suspicion.  Depending on who is speaking that conspiracy, it could give the speaker credence and insider power.
Conspiracies also reveal the fear in people for everything unseen around them.  God says to trust him and not worry about conspiracies.
