In a recent study entitled What About Building 7? -- A Social Psychological Study Of Online Discussion Of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, Dr Michael Wood and Dr Karen Douglas of the University of Kent (UK) explore these questions, and more.

Belief systems also have a profound effect on the acceptance or rejection of conspiracy theories
