Many wonder if conspiracy theories are far-fetched or a reality? Conspiracy theories have managed to change the way many people think.

Although conspiracy beliefs can occasionally be based on a rational analysis of evidence, most of the time they are not. As a species, one of our greatest strengths is our ability to find meaningful patterns in the world around us and to make causal inferences.

  • The JFK Assassination: John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963 at 12:30 p.m in Dallas, Texas while riding in a presidential motorcade in Dealey Plaza. Lee Harvey Oswald, a former U.S Marine was charged for the murder. However, many believe that the trajectory of the bullets didn’t square with Oswald’s perch on the sixth floor of the Texas school book depository. Others suggest a second gunman participated in the shooting. Which leaves many to question, if Kennedy was killed by CIA agents, acting of either anger over the Bay of Pigs or at the orders of Vice President Lyndon Johnson.
  • Paul is Dead: Paul McCartney never wrote “Maybe I’m Amazed.” He never formed the band Wings. He never clashed with Yoko, became a vegetarian, or fathered any of his children. When Queen Elizabeth knighted him in 1997, she was actually knighting someone else. This is because, conspiracy-minded Beatlemaniacs say, Paul McCartney secretly died in 1966. Theorists claim the other Beatles covered up his death, hiring someone who looked like him, sang like him, and had the same jovial personality, but the guilt eventually got to them and they began hiding clues in their music.
  • The Moon landings are fake!: As far-fetched as this hoax may seem, many believe that Neil Armstrong never took his, “giant leap for mankind”. Doubters say the U.S. government was desperate to beat the Russians in the space race, faked the lunar landings, with Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin acting out their mission on a secret film set, located either high in the Hollywood Hills or deep within Area 51. With the photos and videos of the Apollo missions only available through NASA, there’s no independent verification that the lunar landings were anything but a hoax.
  • Secret societies control the world: The world is ruled by a powerful, secretive few. Many of the us have heard that in 2004 both candidates for the White House were members of Yale University’s secretive Skull and Bones society, many of whose members have risen to powerful positions, but Skull and Bones is compact compared to the mysterious cabals that occupy virtually every seat of power, from the corridors of government to the boardrooms of Wall Street. Like the illuminati, they intend to foment world wars to strengthen the argument for the creation of a worldwide government and boast alumni like George Washington. Some think that despite donating heaps of cash to charity, they’re secretly plotting undoing at Masonic temples across the world or maybe, some theorize, the guys pulling the strings aren’t concealed in a shadow at all. They might be the intelligentsia on the Council on Foreign Relations, a cadre of policy wonks who allegedly count their aims as publishing an erudite bimonthly journal and establishing a unified world government.
  • 9/11 cover-up: The most prominent conspiracy theory about the September 11 2001 attacks is that the collapse of the twins towers and world trade center were the result of a controlled demolition rather than structural failure due to impact and fire. Another prominent belief is that the Pentagon was hit by a missile launched by elements from inside the U.S government or that a commercial airliner was allowed to do so via an effective stand down of the American military.
  • Area 51: Many wonder if government officials could be hiding proof of extraterrestrial life deep beyond the gates of area 51. The public’s uproar for this has come from various of UFO sightings throughout the area and testimony from a retired army colonel, who says he was given access to extraterrestrial materials gathered from an alien spacecraft that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico Some believe that the government studies time travel at Area 51, also known as Groom Lake or Dreamland. Being one of the most heavily guarded places on earth, suspicion builds up, leaving the public to question, what could the military possibly be hiding?
  • Holocaust Hoax: Despite overwhelming evidence, an admission, and apology from Germany decades ago, revisionists continue to claim that nearly 6 million Jews were not killed by Nazis during the Holocaust. The Holocaust’s denial and distortion were found to be high when 60% of survey takers in the Middle East and North Africa who were aware of the Holocaust told resources they thought it had been hyperbolized or completely made up. Theorists and non-believers may argue that the number of deaths were also greatly exaggerated. An example would be, gas chambers. Holocaust deniers say they were purely a rumor or, if they did exist, were not powerful enough to kill.
  • Hitler faked his own death: This theory contradicts Hitler committing suicide in order to avoid being captured. Theorists believe that Hitler and his wife faked their own death and fled to Argentina. While subject to some exposure in popular culture, examples being such as, Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler. Declassified FBI documents that contain a number of alleged sightings of Hitler along with theories of his escape from Germany. The FBI states that the information within those documents pertaining to the escape and sightings of Hitler cannot be verified.
  • The Reptilian Elite: Blood-drinking, flesh-eating, shape-shifting extraterrestrial reptilian humanoids with only one objective in their cold-blooded little heads: To enslave the human race. They are our leaders, corporate executives, beloved Oscar-winning actors and Grammy-winning singers and it is said that they’re responsible for The Holocaust, The Oklahoma city bombings, and the 9/11 attacks. Conspiracy Theorist insist that Reptilians have controlled humankind since ancient times, counting among the most powerful leaders in history.
  • FDA is withholding the cure for cancer: Believers insist that the FDA has been withholding the cure for cancer from the general public, in order to make profit off of patient’s treatments. While big pharmacies have not made itself many friends among the public, there is no evidence that such a vast conspiracy is possible as it would require the participation of thousands, if not millions of people in both for-profit and nonprofit sectors. It makes more sense that selling the cure would actually make more money. It’s also hard to believe that these evil medical professionals would not use the cure on themselves and their families, a fact that would eventually come to light.
