Yeh, it is the same thing. Certainly the Conspiratorian I know is definitely searching for meaning in his life (for reasons it wouldn't be fair to discuss on the Internet).
In my experience the conspiracy big picture (which I reckon they all have) puts the earth right back at the centre of the universe and means there could easily be a real meaning to life/God. I mean, if the Earth is flat AND the man can hide that from us? Known science is worthless and the possibilities are boundless.
