it’s really sad how the word „theory“ gets abused by calling them theorist.
I know ‚hypothesesist’ is a bit ugly, but it’s closer to the mark.
The phrase conspiracy theory fits fine in my opinion. Most people don't think of it in the sense of scientific theories and hypotheses. Theory in it's everyday use isn't constricted to science.
