Megalist: An Introduction and Summary of 500 Conspiracy Theories

The All Seeing Eye.
I ended up starting this when I was going through a really bad bout of stomach trouble. As such, my time was spent on /x/. Then an idea sprang to mind: why not try to summarize as many of the theories on the various Conspiracy Iceberg as I can? I saw no reason not to try, so I listed off 100 of them.


Then 200.


Then 250.


Then 300.


Then 400.


Finally, I got to 500 and settled there. While not every single one is from the Iceberg, I tried to stick to it as best I could. 


Also, on one final note, I feel it’s necessary to stress that just because I don't work to actively disprove all of these, that does not mean u believe they're legitimate. Simply put: I don’t wish to discourage anyone from looking into them if they’re open minded or even believe in them. Rather, I encourage you—no matter how much I may disagree with you—to do your own research. We have free will and I don’t have any control over the decisions you make. The only thing I ask from you is that—should you decide to comment (which would make my day!)—to please not be inflammatory or mean. I know how volatile conspiracies can be and I’d like things to be civil (should anyone opt to debate).


Let’s Break the Conditioning: An Introduction and Summary of 500 Conspiracy Theories


#1: John F. Kennedy’s Assassination A classic in the realm of conspiracy theories. There are an insurmountable number of variations which include:


- The FBI killed him (the director, J. Edgar Hoover, loathed Kennedy).


- The CIA had him killed. This theory stems from a quote where Kennedy said he wanted to shred the agency into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the wind. Allegedly, he said this after he was duped into the Bay of Pigs Invasion.


- The Mafia killed him (Kennedy wanted to crack down on organized crime). Some also suspect the FBI or CIA hired the Mafia to carry out the hit.


- The Federal Reserve killed him. There are claims that Kennedy wanted to abolish the Fed.


- His vice president, Lyndon B. Johnson, killed him. This claim alleges that Johnson was a part of the Deep State and did it as a power grab.


- The Cubans killed him in response to the Bay of Pigs Invasion. Fidel Castro went on record as denying this and said it would have been “suicide”. He continued by saying that if they had, the United States would have demolished the entire country of Cuba in response.


- The Soviets killed him. They too denied it and it’s also worth noting that the leader of the time. Nikita Kruschev, actually liked Kennedy. In contrast, he loathed Johnson.


- Aliens killed him. This is because aliens are a necessity in every truth seekers claim and without them, the theory is missing the most necessary ingredient.


- His wife, Jackie, killed him (this was due to him having affairs).


- The driver killed him. The idea here is that the famous footage most have likely seen has been edited and that the driver turned around, drew a gun, and shot Kennedy.


- Kennedy killed himself. This idea posits that Kennedy wanted to martyr himself.


- Coca-Cola was behind it. Okay, not entirely. According to the editor of an organic gardening magazine, the reason Oswald shot Kennedy was due to a mental impairment that stemmed from an addiction to refined sugar. Specifically, Coca-Cola.


While the official story is still what’s consistently circulated, the assassination of President Kennedy is a theory that many Americans believe to be legitimate.


#2: Roswell and Area 51 The legendary crash of ‘47 has been at the center of many theories. While the official report states that the object was a weather balloon, many UFO enthusiasts insist the object was something else. These theories include:


- It was a real alien spaceship.


- It was a Soviet spy plane.


- It was a satellite.


- It was a plane that contained deformed Russian children.


- It was a top secret United States aircraft.


- It was a meteor.


To this day, the Roswell incident remains one of the most iconic and widely discussed conspiracies in the United States. As for Area 51, it’s said that this is where the object that crashed in Roswell was taken to. Some have claimed that Area 51 is where the government and aliens collaborate to create extremely advanced weaponry or where the bodies were merely examined. Skeptics, meanwhile, believe that Area 51 is nothing more than a place where prototypes of military aircraft are tested and that the reason for its secrecy is geopolitical in nature.


#3: The Illuminati Another classic, the Illuminati was a real group way back when. To quote the original founder of the group, Adam Weishaupt:


The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation.


George Washington was also aware of their existence and had made it a goal to make sure it never spread to the United States.


It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.


Alas, that seems to not be the case nowadays. Some claim they now operate in the shadows and are the source of all the world’s strife. 9/11, the Middle East, and even World War 1 and 2. The Illuminati have also recently come into the mainstream thanks to the belief that US President Donald Trump is working to defeat the cabal.


#4: The FBI The premiere law enforcement agency in the United States, the history of the FBI is one that has been marred thanks to the first director, J. Edgar Hoover. Although many directors have worked to clean the image of the agency, there are those that believe it to be a politicized intelligence that’s weaponized by the president to take down political opponents. This belief was catapulted into the mainstream by President Trump.


#5: The Moon Landing As classic as a song by Bobby Darin, the idea here is that the US faked the Apollo 11 landing to win the space race. Some claim that legendary Hollywood director Stanley Kubrick filmed it and used the adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, The Shining, to confess to it. Coincidentally, it’s also speculated by some that King murdered Kubrick because of how much he despised the adaptation. There’s a sub theory that claims that Apollo 11 landed on the wrong Moon.


#6: Project Blue Beam Preface: I’m going to use portions of my write-up about this theory from December. Call me lazy, but I’m too proud of it to let it go to waste for this megalist. I also don’t think there’s a simple way to make Blue Beam a simplistic summary given how gargantuan it is in its details.


Quite easily the most insane and nonsensical conspiracy I’ve ever heard of, the idea behind Project Blue Beam is that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is devising this extraordinarily realistic and three-dimensional holographic technology that they’ll use to simulate the Second Coming of Jesus Christ (though it isn’t limited to just Jesus, but more on that later). This simulation will, in the end, result in the Antichrist being appointed as head of the New World Order and from there, the End Days begin. As for its name, I cannot find a definitive answer to that, but from what I can gather, the device[s] will emit blue beams to create the holographic images. Take that with a grain of salt though.


Project Blue Beam is divided into four meticulous stages that will be carried out over a period of time. These four stages are as follows:


Stage 1


Starting things off: the New World Order would trigger a series of artificial earthquakes in various parts of the world. This would unearth an array of “new artifacts” that would then reveal to us that the religious doctrines that billions have followed for millennia have, in fact, been misunderstood. The end result of this would be that every religion around the world would be discredited in the blink of an eye.


Monast claims that films like Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey were used to lay the foundation for this stage. The scene involving the monolith was a major part of this in laying what’s essentially the psychological framework to the inevitable unraveling of what we as a species supposedly knew about religion and of our world as a whole.


Monast also says that films like Jurassic Park are propaganda as it teaches us evolution as opposed to the concept of creationism and subtlety feeding children and other naïve individuals that God’s word is nothing but lies.


Stage 2


The second stage of Project Blue Beam would begin with what’s been described as a massive “show” that would be seen in outer space. Through the usage of three-dimensional holographic laser projections, we would see UFOs and creatures as described in the Book of Revelation in the sky. This is when something truly fantastical and unbelievable would happen: religious figures would appear in the sky, though it’d correlate with what the country/area’s predominant religion is. For example: Israel would see the Jewish messiah, Christian countries would see Jesus, Buddhist countries would see Buddha, and Muslim countries would see Allah.


Exactly why predominantly Muslim countries would see Allah as opposed to their prophet—which is Muhammad—I don’t know. As for Buddhist majority countries, I consulted a friend of mine who’s a Buddhist and they don’t exactly have prophets, so it makes sense that Buddha would be seen.


I digress though. These deities—despite being seen in different parts of the and separated by thousands of miles in some instances—would then all merge into one single God. According to Monast, it’s at this moment that the “electronic Antichrist” would be born. Accompanying this event would also be Soviet-era computers that would assist in the psychological aspect of this event.


“Minute physio-psychological particulars based on their studies of the anatomy and electro-mechanical composition of the human body, and the studies of the electrical, chemical and biological properties of the human brain; every human has been allocated a unique radio wavelength.”


I grabbed that off of a 4chan post, so make of it what you will. I don’t think that’s how human psychology works.


>The destruction of religious and social order would eventually take place, resulting in countless fanatics showing symptoms of demonic possession on a scale never seen before. During this time, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy would be blasted across the planet as the anthem of the New Age One World Religion.


Stage 3


Stage three will involve “Telepathic Two-Way Communication”. This will consist of transferring artificial knowledge via satellites. This knowledge will enter the human brain and result in mind control. Here’s how Monast himself describes it.


“Such rays from satellites are fed from the memories of computers that have stored massive data about every human on earth, and their languages. The rays will then interlace with their natural thinking to form what we call diffuse artificial thought.”


I personally don’t get it.


I digress. This is all achieved through extremely low-frequency (ELF) radio waves that will make people believe that their God (or idol) is speaking directly to them through the use of telepathy.


On one final note: The Spectator, a magazine based out of the United Kingdom, published a response from Monast himself in regards to what will happen to anyone who’s skeptical of the complete and total mind control of the world’s population.


“If people do not believe this kind of technology is possible, or that it is science fiction, those people put themselves in great jeopardy. During the night when the new messiah will be presented to the world, they will not be prepared and will have no time to prepare to save themselves against that kind of technology.”


With Stage 3 done, we now move onto the most magnificent of it all.


Stage 4


The final stage of Project Blue Beam is comprised of three separate steps.


The first is to run propaganda that will fool the world’s population into thinking that there’s an enormous alien invasion—one on the scale of Roland Emmerich’s 1996 film Independence Day—is imminent and that it’ll be centered at every major city on Earth.


According to Monast, this step has also been prepared by Hollywood. In this case, via 2001, Star Wars, and Star Trek. He claims that the three films all involve a massive invasion from space and that all nations join together to fight off the extraterrestrial threat. This was also stated by former US President Ronald Reagan:


“Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”


This quote has commonly been believed as Reagan hinting that Blue Beam was real and would lead to the New World Order.


The second step is to convince Christians to believe that the Rapture has begun. To accomplish this, there’s supposedly a device that has been “perfected” that is capable of lifting a massive number of people into the sky. This device was allegedly tested in a very interesting way: UFO abductions throughout the decades were apparently the way that it was tested.


The third and final step will be the activation of “special microchips” (or just smart chips) that have secretly been installed into every single modern electronic and appliance. These chips will visualize displays that will be supernatural in appearance. However, in reality, they’re actually holograms created by Project Blue Beam.


Once these three steps have been completed, the level of chaos that’s taking place will supposedly lead to the world’s population begging for the New World Order to take complete and total control. As such, the one world government will begin. Once this is done and the New World Order has been officially established, everyone will need to take an oath to Lucifer through a ritualistic initiation. Those who resist will be put into one of seven categories.


#1: Children of the Christian faith are to be kept as either human sacrifices or sex slaves. Or, in Monast’s own words:


“Classification of Christian children, as they plan it, are to be used as human sacrifice. Where? Within the black mass ceremonies, they will participate in any kind of sexual orgy, some to be kept as sexual slaves.”


#2: The resistor will be kept for use in medical experiments.


#3: The resistor will be kept and used as a living organ bank.


#4: Those who are healthy and fit for manual labor will be thrown into a slave camp.


#5: Those who the New World Order are uncertain about will be put into a re-education center. After this, they’ll be put onto international television and forced to repent for resisting, after which they will learn to glorify and praise the New World Order.


#6: Should the resistor not fit into any of the above-mentioned categories, they will be thrown into an execution center.


#7: This classification is as of yet unknown. Why this is, I’m unsure.


It’s at this point that  things become a bit murky. Depending on who you are, this’ll be when the End Days begins (as described in religious texts) and Armageddon commences. For others, there will be more time before things like the real Second Coming begins.


As I said in the December write-up on Blue Beam, you can find plenty of information online about it. If you’re willing to endure one of the deepest and craziest rabbit holes in the world, go for it. Otherwise, you may be better off simply remaining oblivious.


#7: 9/11 I think we’ve all heard the conspiracies surrounding 9/11. Some of these include:


- A test of Project Blue Beam (a drone was crashed in the case of United Airlines Flight 93).


- A false flag attack by the US government so we could invade Iraq for oil. This is generally thought to be George W. Bush finishing his father’s work (George H.W. Bush started the Gulf War). Some also think a miniature nuke was used and no planes struck the towers.


- Saudi Arabia (most of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia).


- Insurance fraud (Larry Silverstein had taken out a major insurance policy shortly before the attacks and neither he nor his family or friends went to work on the day of the attack).


- Controlled demolition to begin the aforementioned conflict with Iraq. This is one of the most popular theories thanks to the collapse of World Trade Center 7, the building that fell despite not being hit by any planes. The official explanation is office fires damaging the structure of it.


- Japan (I have no idea where this theory comes from).


- Israel (this is a very long story, but many allegations related to Middle Eastern wars involve Israel).


- The Deep State (an off-shoot of a false flag, but George W. Bush genuinely didn’t know it was a false flag).


- A cover up for missing money in the Pentagon (the day prior to the attack, the Pentagon announced it had lost a trillion dollars; some think that the attacks were used to cover this up, but the planes that struck the World Trade Center were used to divert attention).


- A Hollywood practical effect that went terribly wrong (someone claimed they were destroyed during the filming of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man).


I’m sure I missed some, but the rabbit hole of the 9/11 truth movement is a deep one that is a headache. Nonetheless, it’s the modern equivalent to JFK. The number of people that subscribe to it is larger than one may think too—something I’m unsurprised by given a fair number of people believe that Reptilians exist.


#8: The 2006 Volleyball Incident I did a write-up on this theory last year and as such, I’ll be using an excerpt from said write-up.


A supposed school shooting that was covered up by the government. The story surrounding this event is pretty simple. Supposedly, a shooting or bombing took place during a school volleyball event in either Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Utah, Oregon, or Montana (though the first two are the most commonly claimed). It’s stated that around 17–24 people were killed. From here, the incident was covered up completely—no word of the shooting/bombing was ever made public and the victims were effectively erased from the memories of their families and friends. The reason for such a coverup has ranged from it being a psyop to it being a precursor to the Sandy Hook Massacre.


#9:The Sky is Alive According to some, the sky is a living organism and operates like our brain. The thoughts the sky has produce clouds and lightning is the equivalent to neurons. Meanwhile, weather is created via emotions. Someone call David Cage, I think I’ve found the plot for his next game!


#10: UFOs Are Jellyfish A quirky little theory, this one posits that UFOs aren’t alien aircraft, but instead a type of jellyfish native to the skies above.


#11: Cryptids and Advanced Cryptozoology While cryptozoology is often the subject of debate (in regards to it being pseudoscience), it’s also a hotbed for conspiracy theories; Mothman and the Chupacabra being two of the biggest topics of discussion. However, the entire field of study itself is the center of a conspiracy. Known as Advanced Cryptozoology (which I must confess I’m not entirely sure if that’s the proper use of that name), there’s a belief that the government (or governments), there’s a staunch belief that cryptids are deliberately being covered up due to their extraterrestrial—or interdimensional—origins. Think something like the Men in Black.


#12: Mars The red planet is a hotbed for conspiracy theories. Life has been covered up, the ruins of ancient civilizations are covered up, we never landed a rover on Mars, and humans originate from Mars due to the collapse of our original civilization are but a few. Now if only Elon could get us there.


#13: Time Cube This is why I am the way I am today. Time Cube is incomprehensible to say the least, but it was made by a now deceased man named Gene Ray. He claimed that he was the smartest man in the world and that, supposedly, Earth has four sides that go through four separate days. Also, for anyone who’s curious about Gene Ray, I leave you with some quotes.


I bestow upon myself the "Doctorate of Cubicism", for educators are ignorant of Nature’s Harmonic Time Cube Principle and cannot bestow the prestigious honor of wisdom upon the wisest human ever.


I am wiser than any god or scientist, for I have squared the circle and cubed Earth’s sphere, thus I have created 4 simultaneous separate 24 hour days within a 4-corner (as in a 4-corner classroom) rotation of Earth. See for yourself the absolute proof.


My wisdom so antiquates known knowledge, that a psychiatrist examining my behavior, eccentric by his academic single corner knowledge, knows no course other than to judge me schizoprenic. In today’s society of greed, men of word illusion are elected to lead and wise men are condemned. You must establish a Chair of Wisdom to empower Wise Men over the stupid intelligentsia, or perish.


There is "absolute proof" that You are personified pyramid.


-1 x -1 = +1 is stupid and evil.


Linear Time is wrong and suicidal.


YOU KNOW WHAT!!! You are educated stupid as teachers lack intelligence. Truth is Cubic. Time is Cubic... Life is Cubic.... Form is Cubic.. Family is Cubic.. Village is Cubic.. Evil is cubeless. Self is cubeless. God is cubeless. Language is a human invention of an evil cubeless singularity.


Tis Time to kill any educator who does not teach Cubicism above cubelessness. To save humanity from extinction, like prior civilizations perished, youth must redirect self teachers, or destroy them. ... It is not immoral for students to kill all educators who ignore Nature’s Harmonic Time Cube or suppress free speech rights to debate Time Cube Creation Principle.


It’s not immoral to kill Americans who IGNORE their OPPOSITE sex parents who Created them, but instead worship a queer jew who claims to make people out of dirt - when the body is 90 percent water. A God so stupid that he claims only a single day rotation of Earth - while my Cubic Wisdom has allowed me to create 4 simultaneous days within a single Earth rotation. Americans do not deserve life. They live only for today, the evil singularity word bastards.


YOU are the lowest form. YOU can’t procreate alone. YOU destroyed the village. YOU destroyed the family. YOU destroyed childhood. YOU destroyed naturalism. YOU don’t know the Truth. YOU pitiful mindless fools, YOU are educated stupid. YOU worship cubeless word. YOU are your own poison. YOU create your own hell. YOU must seek Time Cube."


Dumb academicians cannot comprehend their slavery to counterfeit word and its evil. Word enslaves mind. Talking dog could enslave humanity. Teachers enslave you stupid.


He was an interesting man.


#14: The Satanic Cabal A quasi offshoot of something like the Illuminati or New World Order, the Satanic Cabal is allegedly a group of devil worshippers that rule over America. They wish to enrich themselves and satisfy themselves at the cost of our freedom. It’s claimed by some that President Trump is battling to overthrow them and give the people back their God given freedom.


#15: Programmed To Kill This is one theory I’ve wanted to look into more, but I’ve never had the adequate time to do so. The idea is that all serial killers and mass shooters are all “programmed to kill” by the CIA and Satanic Cabal. They do this to divert attention from the goings-on in the government. I have absolutely no idea if the FBI is in on this, but one can assume they are. On one final note, if this sounds interesting to you, there’s a channel on YouTube that covers this theory (it has been for what will be a decade come this October). Just look up “programmed to kill”, it’s the first result. An important note though:. most videos are in text format, so you’ll need to read it. Later videos (much later) I believe have some narration.


#16: Nostradamus I don’t think there’s a name more famous when discussion prophecy. Nostradamus transcends religion, age, and borders. Known for his vague and enigmatic prophecies, there are many who believe that what he foresaw is in fact true. Where the conspiracy comes into play is with the disinformation campaign to pass off his writings as nonsense.


#17: Golf Rumors This one has three variants to it. I covered it back in December in more detail and as such, I’ll use excerpts from that to describe it here. Cheap? Maybe. Though if it isn’t broken, why fix it?


It’s claimed that during the 2009 PGA tournament—which was held in August of that year—a nameless, female Politico journalist attended an after party. Upon going into the basement of where this after party was held, she discovered occult activity that was extremely disturbing in nature as opposed to the “normal LARPing Satanist wannabes”. Understandably terrified and put off by what she saw, she wrote about the event and posted it to Politico, only for the story to immediately be removed. Supposedly, the powers that be were none too pleased by her exposing their shady activities and likely threatened her with severe punishment—probably an “unfortunate accident”.


Although the story was removed, it’s claimed that some people did read the story and online forums centered around golf ended up discussing the story en masse. In reaction to this, the posts were wiped off the internet and no archives exist to this day. Still unnerved by the amount of attention that this story was receiving, Tiger Woods’ sex scandal ended up occurring mere days after these posts were removed (I think, the wording of the post I’m citing this portion off of is extremely vague). Said post goes on to state that Tiger Woods ruined his image to bury the Satanic activity story.


The post ends by stating that the poster knew of a .onion site (a website that’s only accessible via the Tor browser), but they couldn’t find it. They also claim that “all surface web traces of it [Golf Rumors] have been wiped outside of threads like this”.


There’s also a slightly longer variant to this version that I came across. It has a few additional details that create a clearer and more disturbing image. Said additional details are as follows.


1: What the journalist saw was that there was a Satanic ritual going on involving children who’d been trafficked there.


2: The story was taken down by editors and higher ups at Politico. As for the golf forums that began to discuss the story, they were shut down and the threads were wiped from the internet.


3: The journalist ended up dying under suspicious circumstances. Some people began to look into the story, but this was overshadowed entirely after Tiger Woods’ scandal became public. There’s nothing about Woods doing on his own volition.


The second version is that a man named Robert Golf was hired by the government and subjected to MKUltra-like experiments by the CIA.


The third and final version comes in the form of a theory put forth by Dead Rabbit Radio—though I think it might’ve been more of a joke than anything else. I digress though. Carpenter mentioned towards the end that Golf Rumors may not have to do with the sport, but rather with the “Global Oscillations at Low Frequencies” part of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft. The G.O.L.F. aspect monitors the sun and has revealed some very interesting things about it, such as how the Sun’s core spins four times faster than the Sun itself.


According to Carpenter, this might’ve been what Golf Rumors is really about. Perhaps there are rumors that there’s something amiss with the Sun that we don’t know since it’s being covered up. Perhaps there’s something sinister, terrifying, or concerning about the Sun. Perhaps there truly is life on the Sun. Perhaps the Sun will die far sooner than we expected it would. Or perhaps the Sun is a living creature.


Ultimately, it’s been speculated by some that this entire story was fabricated by someone who wanted to troll conspiracy theorists. However, given the number of allegations directed towards celebrities and even athletes, it’s entirely possible that the so-called Golf Rumors are in fact legitimate in nature.


#18: The Deep State This one is a bit trickier to explain since in many ways, the Deep State does exist. The manner in which exists, however, is different than some of the ways it’s portrayed as.


The Deep State theory states that there’s a shadow government—which is comprised of members of the elite and of US intelligence agencies (typically the CIA)—that are actively working against the will of the people. Where as we want freedom, they want an authoritarian government. What type depends on what your political alignment is. Some say it’s fascist and others say it’s communist.


In some ways, this isn’t a conspiracy. You could call the actions by the DNC during the 2016 election, the revelations by Edward Snowden, and the various email leaks from WikiLeaks as proof of a Deep State operation. There have also been various operations done by the CIA (see below) that can be taken as signs of a rogue government working above the law.


#19: The CIA The primary intelligence agency in the United States, the CIA has been at the center of a lot of conspiracy theories throughout the years. So much so that I don’t think it’s possible to list them all here without adding well over a thousand words (and that’s just on the names). That said, most truth seekers will tell you that many of the world’s problems can be traced back to them and if they were shredded into a thousand pieces and scattered into the wind, the world would be a significantly better place.


#20: The Simpsons is Real Footage Early seasons of The Simpsons was real footage of a nuclear meltdown that mutated the population of Springfield (a location that was expunged from all records). It also created a rift in the world that made it two-dimensional. This theory is largely regarded as being a joke that some took seriously.


#21: The Large Hadron Collider Known to some as “that machine that was used to recreate the big bang on a tiny scale”, the Large Hadron Collider is suspected by some to be a stargate that will be used to open a portal to Hell in order to bring about the End Days. Others claim it’s being used to awaken an Egyptian God (which is generally believed to be Osiris).


#22: Nibiru 


The Sumerian pantheon was headed by an “Olympian Circle” of twelve, for each of these supreme gods had to have a celestial counterpart, one of the twelve members of the Solar System. Indeed, the names of the gods and their planets were one and the same (except when a variety of epithets were used to describe the planet or the god’s attributes). Heading the pantheon was the ruler of Nibiru, ANU whose name was synonymous with "Heaven," for he resided on Nibiru. His spouse, also a member of the Twelve, was called ANTU. Included in this group were the two principal sons of ANU: E.A ("Whose House Is Water"), Anu’s Firstborn but not by Antu; and EN.LIL ("Lord of the Command") who was the Heir Apparent because his mother was Antu, a half sister of Anu. Ea was also called in Sumerian texts EN.KI ("Lord Earth"), for he had led the first mission of the Anunnaki from Nibiru to Earth and established on Earth their first colonies in the E.DIN ("Home of the Righteous Ones")—the biblical Eden. His mission was to obtain gold, for which Earth was a unique source. Not for ornamentation or because of vanity, but as away to save the atmosphere of Nibiru by suspending gold dust in that planet’s stratosphere. As recorded in the Sumerian texts (and related by us in The 12th Planet and subsequent books of The Earth Chronicles), Enlil was sent to Earth to take over the command when the initial extraction methods used by Enki proved unsatisfactory. This laid the groundwork for an ongoing feud between the two half brothers and their descendants, a feud that led to Wars of the Gods; it ended with a peace treaty worked out by their sister Ninti (thereafter renamed Ninharsag). The inhabited Earth was divided between the warring clans. The three sons of Enlil—Ninurta, Sin, Adad—together with Sin’s twin children, Shamash (the Sun) and Ishtar (Venus), were given the lands of Shem and Japhet, the lands of the Semites and Indo-Europeans: Sin (the Moon) lowland Mesopotamia; Ninurta, ("Enlil’s Warrior," Mars) the highlands of Elam and Assyria; Adad ("The Thunderer," Mercury) Asia Minor (the land of the Hittites) and Lebanon. Ishtar was granted dominion as the goddess of the Indus Valley civilization; Shamash was given command of the spaceport in the Sinai peninsula. This division, which did not go uncontested, gave Enki and his sons the lands of Ham—the brown/black people—of Africa: the civilization of the Nile Valley and the gold mines of southern and western Africa—a vital and cherished prize. A great scientist and metallurgist, Enki’s Egyptian name was Ptah ("The Developer"; a title that translated into Hephaestus by the Greeks and Vulcan by the Romans). He shared the continent with his sons; among them was the firstborn MAR.DUK ("Son of the Bright Mound") whom the Egyptians called Ra, and NIN.GISH.ZI.DA ("Lord of the Tree of Life") whom the Egyptians called Thoth (Hermes to the Greeks)—a god of secret knowledge including astronomy, mathematics, and the building of pyramids. It was the knowledge imparted by this pantheon, the needs of the gods who had come to Earth, and the leadership of Thoth, that directed the African Olmecs and the bearded Near Easterners to the other side of the world. And having arrived in Mesoamerica on the Gulf coast—just as the Spaniards, aided by the same sea currents, did millennia later—they cut across the Mesoamerican isthmus at its narrowest neck and—just like the Spaniards due to the same geography—sailed down from the Pacific coast of Mesoamerica southward, to the lands of Central America and beyond. For that is where the gold was, in Spanish times and before.


  • Zecharia Sitchin, The Lost Realms (The Earth Chronicles, #4)


If that made sense to you, then you likely understand why people believe in Nibiru.


The legendary planet that was said to kill us all on December 21, 2012, Nibiru has had more arrival dates than Duke Nukem Forever had. Said to be a planet that’s either about the size of our Moon or the size of Earth, Nibiru has an extremely odd orbit that brings it through our Solar System and then out of it. It’s said that the next time it arrives, it’ll either pass between us and the Moon or outright strike Earth and kill us all. Should it be the former, it’d likely cause catastrophic damage to the planet, but not kill all of us (just a whole lot of us). Although NASA has repeatedly said that the planet cannot exist due to our understanding of physics (not to mention how it would’ve likely been sucked into Jupiter), many still think Nibiru is real and that it’s only a matter of time before it returns. If you’re at all curious to look into the belief of Nibiru, there are a plethora of videos on YouTube and forums on the Internet. You may need to dig a bit deep if you use Google though due to their algorithm typically burying conspiracy related content.


#23: Vaccines and Autism A claim that’s seen a resurgence in recent years thanks to social media, the claim that vaccines are the cause for Autism is one that’s been blamed for outbreaks of diseases like Measles. While many parents will claim that due to their child being injured when given a vaccine as proof that they’re harmful and extremely dangerous, doctors argue against this and say that such instances are exceedingly rare and the risk of an outbreak of a long-forgotten disease is significantly more dangerous than one could ever imagine.


Despite those pleas, the crusade against vaccination continues and the risk that children are put at due to this has become no better in recent memory. As a fun little fact, the supposed doctor who created this conspiracy is no longer a real doctor. Oops!


#24: Space is Fake This is one of those theories that feels like it originates from an unproduced 1960s Sci-Fi film. While there are those that believe the Earth exists under the Firmament (a dome that’s described in the Book of Genesis; most nowadays believe it to be interpreted as the atmosphere), some outright think that space itself doesn’t exist. The Moon, the stars, the planets, all of that is hogwash. For what reason, I must admit that I don’t know for absolute certain. Some may point to the aforementioned Firmament and say that the Earth is flat and the heavens above were put there by God to show His power, but some may just say that Earth is the only “real” thing that exists. Then there’s the “life is a simulation” theory and what we’re seeing is a skybox.


#25: Nazis in Antarctica The Nazis were—and still are—a hotbed for conspiracy theories. One of these is related to the idea that the Nazis were never fully defeated, but instead fled to Antarctica and set up base there; this action supposedly later being the reason for the controversial “Operation: High Jump”. Although the continent is inhospitable and a nightmare to live in, some argue that what they really did was go down an entrance and into the Hollow Earth. This theory (along with a few others) later went on to be used in the 2019 film Iron Sky: The Coming Race.


#26: Flat Earth I’m sure everyone’s heard of this theory. The Earth is not round, but is in fact flat. This theory has also seen a resurgence in recent times and has become the subject of numerous memes. While many scientists and astronomers have debunked the claim, it remains a popular belief among some.


#27: Reptilians Popularized by former European sportsman David Icke, the theory that the elite and world leaders are shapeshifting Reptilian aliens has been the subject of both many jokes and sincere beliefs. While most scoff at the mere notion of these shapeshifters, millions believe it and some even claim that the Reptilians are plotting to exterminate all of humanity.


#28: Climate Change Is Fake An extremely prominent theory and one that I love to read up on, Climate Change has been the subject of both serious study and extreme skepticism. The latter falls into two camps: pure skepticism and outright denial. The former presents skepticism to the concept of man-made climate change while the latter tends to either deny that man has any effect on the climate or that climate change as a whole (such as the climate naturally changing) isn’t a thing. While both stances are generally seen as conspiracy theories, the latter tends to get criticism from even skeptics. 


#29: Doveland, Wisconsin Supposedly, there was a town in the state of Wisconsin named Doveland. While no such area exists, some claim that an event took place there around 2016 and that any and a information has been suppressed and the mere existence of the location has been expunged.


#30: The Titanic Was Deliberately Sunk It’s claimed that the Titanic was sunk due to the company that made the ship being in danger of going bankrupt. As such, they devised a scheme to have the ship sink so they’d get a massive payout. There’s also a theory that J.P. Morgan had it sink as one of the passengers was opposed to the Federal Reserve (which was brought into power the following year).


#31: Denver Airport This one is remarkably simplistic. The idea is that Denver International Airport, located in Denver, Colorado, is in fact the base of operations for the New World Order. Its odd taste in art (which typically conveys a message of uniting against what look to be Nazis), an extremely unnerving and strange horse sculpture, and a runway that some say resembles a swastika is what’s often presented as proof. I won’t deny that the first two are certainly odd, but I’ve never been able to see the swastika. To me, it looks way too skewered. On a final note, I have to wonder why they wouldn’t pick a more morbid/ironic location like JFK International Airport in New York City. It’s always claimed that JFK was staunchly against the New World Order and friends. Why not disgrace his memory by having your headquarters there?


#32: The Top of Mountains It’s claimed by some that the tops of mountains hold many peculiarities, such as leylines, portals and UFO hangers.


#33: The NSA Although whistleblower Edward Snowden made it public that the NSA is spying on American civilians, there are some who believe that the operation is significantly larger than what Snowden has revealed. Claims include spying through televisions and even Xbox Kinect cameras.


#34: PizzaGate This one actually has a fair bit of truth to it given the arrests of people like Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein. The idea behind it is that the political elite in the United States are a part of a pedophilia ring; the name originating from an email sent by Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta. Although I’m adamant there’s some truth to PizzaGate, there are several elements to it that have yet to be proven. Some of them include the underground child sex trafficking ring inside of Comet Pizza and the rather sleazy looking John Podesta (along with his brother, Tony) having abducted Madeleine McCann.


As a side note: I want to quickly give a warning. At the start, I said that I encourage people to look into conspiracies if they’re interested. I stand by that completely; you’re free to look into this one, but my one and only major bit of caution is this: If you aren’t can’t stomach stories or extreme sexual abuse, rape, and violence against children (or anything of that nature), I seriously can’t stress enough that this is likely going to be distressing for you. Seriously, it’s likely this will leave you awake for a week or two.


#35: The Oklahoma City Bombing It’s said that the either Islamists or the FBI were behind the Oklahoma City Bombing rather than Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. The reason for the former is revenge for Operation: Desert Storm while the latter was to create an excuse to crackdown on white supremacists. It’s also been claimed that there was a third bomber (it is true that a “John Doe 2” was being looked for for a fair bit of time) was involved and that it was Michael Berscia.


#36: Cicada 3301 The famous Internet enigma, the group that calls itself “3301” (with the Cicada part coming from the original photo it posted on 4chan) has been speculated to be a recruiting campaign for the CIA, MI6, Mossad, and a rogue group of elite hackers. However, none have been proven and to date, their most recent puzzle remains unsolved.


#37: Ebola Was an Inside Job by the CDC Some have suggested the Ebola outbreak from the mid-2010s was deliberate in nature. The motivation for it was funding from the government. It must’ve worked since late last year, a vaccine was successfully made.


#38: Saddam Hussein’s Stargate Claimed by some to be the real reason we invaded Iraq, this theory posits that the former dictator of Iraq had a stargate that he was going to use to invade the United States. Others have much more fantastical theories.


#39: The Freemasons The open secret of secret societies, the Freemasons are a fraternity that many can join (there’s a Masonic lodge not far from me). However, some believe that the Freemasons—much like the Illuminati—are behind many of the world’s troubles.


#40: The Philadelphia Experiment An extremely famous example of what’s believed to be time travel or dimension hopping, The Philadelphia Experiment is said to have been a test that was meant to have a battleship become invisible (or cloaked). However, what instead happened was the ship was teleported from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to off the shore of South Carolina and back. As a result, our reality was split in two and we’re now living in the reality that was created. Those aboard the ship, meanwhile, went insane.


#41: Biblical Aliens It’s said that the Bible speaks of aliens. The song Come Sail Away by Styx references this.


#42: Michigan Blue Hell A video game esque conspiracy, the idea of this theory is that there’s a building in Michigan that can “clip out” of our reality. Some claim this is caused by a Native American spirit that was imprisoned on the land however. No matter which version you believe, the conspiracy remains the same at its core and the end result is generally the same. If you fall into the Michigan Blue Hell, you’ll never return.


#43: The Lottery Exists to Catch Time Travelers A conspiracy worthy of its own story, this theory posits that the real reason for the lottery isn’t a game of chance for the everyman, but rather to catch those who travel to the past to win big.


#44: Iraq Giant It’s said that shortly after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the United States army faced resistance from giants.


#45: Keanu Reeves is Immortal Fans of actor Keanu Reeves say that he’s immortal. Some subscribe to this theory because he’s extremely kind and generous and only a man who’s lived for centuries could possibly attain such kindness.


#46: Pope Francis is the Antichrist You can thank the hogwash that is the Prophecy of the Popes—along with a general disdain for Catholicism—for this theory. While I’m certain that every Pope since Peter has been labeled as the son of Satan, many believe that Pope Francis is the Antichrist. The Prophecy of the Popes ends with “Peter the Roman”, which many think is Francis. This, coupled with the generally liberal stance Francis has, has led many to the conclusion he has to be the Antichrist.


#47: Oumuamua Rolly polly, rolly polly. The famous space rock that entered our solar system has been the center of speculation ever since it was first observed. Some believe it’s an alien satellite while others think it’s an alien spaceship. Whether they’re benevolent or malevolent is also up for debate.


#48: The 2030 Agenda This theory isn’t the first of its kind. Every few decades, the United Nations puts out an agenda that sets goals to fix various problems that plague our world. In this case, the Sustainable Development Goals (often called the 2030 Agenda) is an agenda put out by the UN to make the world a better place. Here are the 17 goals they put forth.


The Sustainable Development Goals are:


1. No Poverty


2. Zero Hunger


3. Good Health and Well-being


4. Quality Education


5. Gender Equality


6. Clean Water and Sanitation


7. Affordable and Clean Energy


8. Decent Work and Economic Growth


9. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure


10. Reducing Inequality


11. Sustainable Cities and Communities


12. Responsible Consumption and Production


13. Climate Action


14. Life Below Water


15. Life On Land


16. Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions


17. Partnerships for the Goals


Given the very questionable reputation the UN has among a fair number of truth seekers, there have been those who have taken this agenda as being a plan for a one world government.


#49: Sandy Hook I’ve never quite gotten why this one mass shooting in particular has been so popular among conspiracy theorists. I digress: some ardent truth seekers—along with Infowars founder and host Alex Jones—believe that the Sandy Hook Elementary Massacre was a false flag attack (or that it outright never happened and everyone there was a crisis actor). This has attracted an extremely large amount of backlash and even ended up scoring Jones a lawsuit.


#50: Atlantis There are claims that the lost city/continent of Atlantis has been found, but its location is covered up by the governments of the world for reasons unknown. Some allege that those who lived there have adapted to breath underwater while others say that aliens have taken up shop there.


#51: The Man From Taured A rather famous tale, it’s said that a man arrived in Japan for a business trip and presented a passport from the country of Taured. Given that no country by that name exists, the man was detained and later brought to a hotel room to stay for the night; guards were stationed outside of his room. However, the next morning, the man had vanished. While most believe the story to be a work of fiction, some believe the mysterious man was from another dimension and appeared in our world when the two realities overlapped.


#52: The Kecksburg UFO Incident Known as Pennsylvania’s Roswell, a fiery object was seen over the skies of Michigan; later crashing in a forest near Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. Before anyone could go check what it was, the military arrived and took it away. Theories have ranged from it being a Soviet satellite to an alien spacecraft.


#53: The New World Order Many, many political conspiracy theories lead back to this one. The New World Order—which comes from a statement said by former US President George H.W. Bush—is said to be a planned one-world authoritarian government that will subjugate the population of the world and take away any and all freedom; some claiming that it will be a fascist government while others say it’ll be a communist one. Some also claim that there will be one religion and the God of it will be Satan.


#54: The Wyoming Incident Although it’s known as a creepypasta to most, there are those that believe the Wyoming Incident was a real event that caused real adverse harm to those who saw it.


#55: Bitcoin Was Created by Banks The creator of Bitcoin (a man named Satoshi Nakamoto) is a mystery, though there exist quite a few conspiracies surrounding the world famous cryptocurrency. While some think that Bethesda Softworks (the studio behind the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises) are the creators of it, some are of the opinion that banks are the true inventors. Whether or not this is true remains a mystery as Nakamoto has never come forward to disprove (or prove) this.


#56: Chester Bennington Was Murdered It’s said that the lead singer to Linkin Park is the son of John Podesta. When he learned of the truth behind what Hillary Clinton (who he supported in 2016) and Podesta had done, he wished to go public with what he knew. However, before he could, he was silenced.


#57: Black Eyed Children The mysterious and terrifying Black Eyed Children (also known as Black-Eyed Kids or BEKs) are claimed by some to be aliens, demons, the spirits of deceased children, interdimensional entities, or that they’re connected to the Men in Black.


#58: Georgia Guidestones Known as America’s Stonehenge, this monument shares a fair number of similarities to its European counterpart. The creator isn’t known and its purpose is unknown. What the two have differently though is some are adamant that the Guidestones are meant to be the commandments for the New World Order. I’ll let you decide for yourself though.


1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.


2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.


3. Unite humanity with a living new language.


4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.


5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.


6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.


7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.


8. Balance personal rights with social duties.


9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.


10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.


#59: The Patterson-Gimlin Massacre This theory originates from the man who stabilized the Patterson-Gimlin footage. The idea is that Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin were hired to slaughter a family of Bigfoot for either an oil or lumber company.


#60: HAARP This is one of my personal favorites because it’s honestly really cool in theory. Weather is chaotic and let’s face it: being able to control things like hurricanes and supercells (which generally create tornadoes) could save countless lives. If we could also create rainstorms, we could also solve droughts and save even more lives.


HAARP, if it’s really what the conspiracy claims it is, could be what I describe above if you’re one to believe in it. However, its purpose wouldn’t be for the benefit or even betterment of mankind. Rather, it’d be for a much different and very interesting purpose. Weather-based warfare.


Located in Alaska, HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is aimed at studying Earth’s ionosphere. It was originally operated by the US Air Force before control of it was the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Given the remote nature of Alaska and the generally secretive nature of HAARP, many believe that it’s a weather control program and that many devastating storms have been “tests”. Some of these include Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina. Strange cloud shapes (such as the circular ones) are also suspected of being caused by HAARP. It’s believed that once the testing is finished, the program will be used to annihilate America’s enemies or to assist in depopulation of the planet.


#61: Fukushima The Fukushima meltdown actually has a few conspiracies behind it. One claims the damage to the ecosystem and even the Pacific Ocean is significantly worse than we’ve been told (I’ve read claims that the entirety of the Pacific is doomed to become radioactive). Others say the meltdown never happened or that it was a false flag. One of the more enigmatic ones posits that the meltdown opened a portal or gateway to either Hell or another dimension.


#62: Tommy Wiseau is Dan Cooper While he may not have hit Lisa, there’s a theory that Tommy Wiseau—director of the inexplicably popular film The Room—is in fact the alias used by America’s only unsolved hijacker. Aside from the supposed resembles, Greg Sestero (the man who starred as Mark in The Room) at one point wondered exactly where Tommy was getting the money to find The Room, even pondering if it was a money laundering scheme. Evidently, one can also speculate that Tommy got a ton of money from the feds before parachuting out of a Boeing 737.


#63: Jesus Was a US President From the Future The idea here is as it says on the tin. The Son of God is a president from the future who went back in time to help better mankind.


#64: Stars Are Holes in the Sky As it’s advertised to be, this theory posits that the stars we see shine in the night sky are actually holes. Where they lead to is a mystery.


#65: Snuff Films This one is less a conspiracy and more an urban legend. Snuff films are said to be movies that depict a real death on camera. While no such thing has ever been released in a movie, you can round footage online of real deaths with ease. As for the conspiracy, some believe that real deaths have been kept in films and studios have covered it up.


#66: Human Hunting It’s been rumored that the world’s elite will kidnap random people, let them loose on an island resort, and then hunt them as sport. Basically: it’s The Most Dangerous Game, but in real life; something the Zodiac killer and Robert Hansen abided by.


#67: The Hawaiian Ballistic Missile The idea here is that the supposed accidental warning that was sent out in 2018 that claimed an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) was headed towards Hawaii was in fact not an accident. Rather, North Korea had in fact launched one. What happened though was the US managed to intercept it and managed to safely neutralize it. In order to keep the public from panicking, the military lied and said it was an accident.


As an addendum: some think aliens caused the warning. Remember everyone: when in doubt, aliens did it.


#68: 24 Hour Year The CIA created a psychedelic that makes one second feel like 24 hours. It’s likely this ties into the infamous MKUltra.


#69: Michael Jackson Was Murdered by the Iranian Government In order to distract the public from the controversy surrounding the alleged election fraud in Iran, the government had the King of Pop killed. This apparently worked as the news that was plaguing the election results died almost immediately.


#70: Greys Are Evolved Dolphins Some truth seekers have put forth the theory that alien greys are in fact dolphins that have evolved.


#71: Vaccines Steal Souls When your Anti-Vaxxer reaches Level 35, it evolves into this theory. The idea is that the vaccinations you and/or your child receive  siphon your soul out of the body. This is done for an array of reasons that vary depending on what you believe the NWO/Illuminati are plotting to do. No matter what, it makes you a soulless drone for the Antichrist.


#72: My Red is Not Your Red This is an interesting one. It’s the theory that the colors one sees aren’t the same as what another person sees. For example, you may see the text’s color as green when I see it as black. You may see the blue sky as purple. This theory ties into the Despair Code very heavily.


#73: The #MeToo Movement Was Planned by the Satanic Cabal While the movement known as Me Too has had some controversy over how online communities have abided by “guilty until proven innocent”, there are some who believe that the entire movement was orchestrated to turn wife against husband and sister against brother; an act by the Satanic Cabal to sow discord between genders. Harvey Weinstein was merely the sacrificial lamb to get the ball rolling.


#74: Jeffery Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself It’s funny to think that at one point on time, the claim that Jeffrey Epstein was a sex trafficking pedophile was seen as a conspiracy theory and quackery. Yet, sure enough, it turned out to be true.


As such, it comes as no surprise that when he was found dead in his prison cell in August of 2019, many were quick to say that he’d been murdered. While the official report goes against this (which states that he hung himself), many are still adamant that he was silenced by someone. This is admittedly not hard to believe given how many times to various rich, powerful people he had. The two most commonly accused are the Clinton's and President Trump.


#75: Chemtrails A very famous theory, the idea here is that the government is using airplanes to spray chemicals on the population in order to make them ill in order to have a reason to fund Big Pharma. It’s also been claimed that the disease being sprayed is in fact a zombie virus.


#76: The Attack on Pearl Harbor It’s believed by some that the President at the time, Franklin D. Roosevelt, had prior knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor, but let it happen so the United States would have a reason to engage in World War II without upsetting the American population.


#77: Real Life Creepypastas A belief primarily held by pre-teens and teenagers, I’m including this because some suspect that Slenderman is real and being covered up. The idea is that the collective belief in creepypasta characters had brought them into our world. This doesn't stop at Slenderman mind you: Jeff the Killer, The Rake, and many others have supposedly been caught on camera.


#78: All Wars Are Faked There’s a saying: politics is theater. A lot of actions in geopolitics boils down to looking tough. This is where this theory comes into play. While it may seem dumbfounding at first, some believe that the theatrics extend to war time and that no actual conflict occurs. It’s all just theatrics and crisis actors—the latter being the primary aspect to how World War II was faked. Naturally, this theory isn’t taken seriously and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a way to prove it when entire cities have been bombed into oblivion thanks to war.


#79: Fake News Technically speaking, this isn’t a conspiracy theory. There have been plenty of examples of fake news and there are destined to be plenty more. Even the most reputable news organizations make errors from time to time; we’re only human after all. That said, there’s extremely prevalent theory—far more than any other nowadays—that the “mainstream media” is out to bulldoze the presidency of Donald Trump and to eviscerate conservatism. I also know that if I had a readerbase that was above three people, I’d get scolded for daring to imply that not everyone and everything left of President Trump was fake news.


#80: Project MKUltra The legendary CIA mind control experiment that illegally saw the controversial agency attempt to coerce information out from prisoners via LSD and other psychedelics, some claim the project persists to this day. This comes in the form of mass shooters such as Stephen Paddock, domestic terrorists like Timothy McVeigh, and many other names you see on the evening news every year. If you’re curious to learn more about this, there’s plenty of information available on the Internet. It’s one of the most popular conspiracies; even the legendary arcade cabinet Polybius ties into it.


#81: J376 I’m hoping to cover this story and another conspiracy that ties into it (which is zombie viruses). For now, J376 is the name of a supposed rabies-esque virus that a 4chan user who claimed to be stationed in the Middle East ended up infecting a secret facility. It’s one of my personal favorite greentext stories and I recommend reading it if you get the chance.


Anyways, if you Google J376, the first result you’ll get is for Camp Bucca. Some suspect that this is where the user was stationed prior to escaping. Given that all greentext stories are treated as being fictitious in nature (or at least users are told to treat them as works of fiction), some have speculated that this one may have been legitimate and that an experimental bio weapon that the US government was testing leaked and infected those stationed in Camp Bucca.


#82: FEMA Camps These are actually real. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has camps set up in case of, well, an emergency. FEMA handles the aftermath of natural disasters, so it’s only natural that they would have camps set up for survivors of a disaster, right?


Well, yes, but we aren’t here to discuss the positive implications of such camps. After all, FEMA also had coffins stored at these camps. That sure doesn’t sound positive.


So what exactly are FEMA camps? Well, officially, they’re what I described. For many truth seekers and even those who aren’t truth seekers though, they’re internment camps in case the president ever imposes martial law. Some have even gone as far as to say that they’re concentration camps and that dissenters of the president will be sent there and killed. There was a very widespread right-wing theory back during the tenure of President Obama that right-wingers and Christians were going to be rounded up and exterminated if they didn’t submit to him. This never happened, but it had a remarkably strong impact on me when I was younger.


#83: Nuclear Weapons Don’t Exist This is by far and away one of the weirdest and most flabbergasting conspiracies I’ve ever encountered. The idea is that the Atomic Bomb and every nuclear weapon made after had never existed. Instead, it’s nothing more than propaganda to keep the population in check through the extreme fear of a nuclear holocaust.


#84: Tor There’s a theory that the Tor—the web browser that promotes privacy and gives access to the Dark Web (and also gets the large majority of its funding from the Federal Government)—is in fact a scheme to get information on those who like to remain 100% anonymous on the Internet.


#85: John Titor John Titor is an extremely famous internet legend that I’d love to someday do a full write-up on, but life hasn’t exactly been kind to me and allowed me to do everything I want to do. Ah well, for those unfamiliar with him, he was a supposed time traveler who was sent back to retrieve an old computer piece for something related to the future. After retrieving it, he defied orders not to tell of anything and went to hold what could best be described as an Ask Me Anything session before they were commonplace.


Titor answered a few questions and even showed blueprints to what his time machine looked like. He also made a few predictions, such as when World War III would occur, that ultimately didn’t come true. However, he mentioned how his future may not be our future, which to some served as a “Get Out of Jail Free” card if his predictions were proven to be bunk.


While the identity of who John Titor really was is unknown, a man by the name of Joseph Matheny—who created the ARG “Ong’s Hat”—claimed in 2018 that he had worked with some people as a consultant in creating the character of Titor. According to Matheny:


“[Titor] is a story that was created as a literary experiment by people who were observing what I was doing with Ong’s Hat and these people wanted to do something like that. I was a consultant on the project, [but] it wasn’t my project.”


This claim has ultimately been the generally agreed upon answer to the mysterious John Titor. However, there are those that disagree and believe Titor was in fact the real deal. Some have even gone so far as to say that President Trump is John Titor. The basis for this comes from his paternal uncle, John Trump, having been an extremely well known physicist who reviewed and analyzed some of Nikola Tesla’s papers.


As for Titor himself, whether or not he was real or the product of an ARG doesn’t matter. His story has lived on as one of the internet’s most enduring legends and has inspired numerous other supposed time travelers to hold Q&A sessions on internet message boards.


#86: Jimmy Page Sold His Soul to Satan There’s a very famous urban legend that the guitarist for Led Zeppelin—Jimmy Page—sold his soul to Satan to become the legendary guitar player that he’s known as today. This legend has since been bought into due to the supposed Satanic symbolism the music industry has been accused of fetishising.


#87: Endless Elevators The idea here is related to something called The Elevator Game. It’s said that if you hit the buttons while in an elevator in a certain order, you’ll be sent to an alternate dimension or reality. However, others say that it’s related to buildings where the elevator goes far lower than normal and that there are things built beneath the Earth that aren’t meant to be seen by the everyman, like Steven Tyler singing about love in an elevator.


#88: The Rapture Already Happened While it may not be scriptural or ever mentioned in the Bible, some believe that the Rapture has already occurred and we’re now living through the Great Tribulation.


#89: Chernobyl Was Faked Tying into the theory that nuclear weapons don’t exist, some also believe that the Chernobyl nuclear disaster never happened and that the location is perfectly habitable. It’s generally thought that the event was staged to create the false illusion that nuclear energy is extremely risky and dangerous.


#90: Comic Con Child Recruitment The idea here is that large conventions, such as Comic Con, are used to abduct children and bring them into sex slavery. It ties into PizzaGate and other theories like it.


#91: Moon Nazis While it’s true that Adolf Hitler was nothing if not ambitious when it came to what type of weaponry he desired his army to have, there are some who believe he was in contact with extraterrestrial beings. These aliens gave him the technology to allow the Nazis to flee to the Moon where they could live. This conspiracy was later used as the basis for the film Iron Sky.


#92: The Holocaust Was Faked I won’t lie: I was very tempted to exclude this theory entirely because it’s just begging for trouble in the comments section. Alas, I’d be doing a great injustice to my love for being a completionist when I can. So I guess I can gleefully invite trouble into this humble little blog.


Known as the Holohoax by those who subscribe to the theory, there’s a very well known (and extremely controversial) belief that six million Jews weren’t killed by the Nazis. The reasoning behind it is a bit vague (to me anyways) and I think it varies from person to person. Some say that the Holocaust was faked in order to establish the state of Israel while others say it was because the Nazis didn’t want to have Jews in Germany due to them screwing over the banking system and economy. Whatever the case, it generally all boils down to the Nazis being framed.


So if that’s the case, then what exactly did happen? Well, the concentration camps are typically said to have been nothing more than labor camps; no Jews were killed in them. The only Jewish death occurred due to the Allies callously bombing Germany and causing man-made famines and bombing hospitals. Any use of Zyklon B was because of lice infestations.


That’s the general basis for the theory/claim. There’s a lot to go over though, both in the way of accusations of the Holocaust having been faked and rebuttals. I would one day love to cover it, but I’m admittedly hesitant to do so as it may get me removed from Google’s indexing. Ah well, there go my 5 readers!


#93: SCPs Are Based on Real Life The SCP (Secure, Contain, Protect) Foundation can see its roots traced back to 4chan. An extremely popular piece of internet culture, the Foundation prides itself on having its content come from its users and fans. However, there are those that believe the horrors featured on the website are actually allusions to real life terrors that are contained by a real life secret foundation. I guess if you ever wanted to be an SCP employee, you better hope this theory is real!


#94: Life on the Sun William Herschel, the man who discovered Uranus back in 1795, originally believed that there was life on the Sun, the massive body of plasma, gas, and other energies that burns at 9940.73 degrees Fahrenheit (5504.85 Celsius). This concept is widely disregarded as being hogwash and complete nonsense. As such, I’m inclined to believe it ties into the concept that our Sun is being used by extraterrestrials to refuel their vehicles and other machines in their home star systems/galaxies. One example of this is Tabby’s Star, which was seemingly blocked by an “alien megastructure”. Some believe then to be gigantic solar panels.


#95: Google Earth Black Spots If you’ve ever read or watched any top 10 lists, then it’s extremely likely you’ve heard of this theory. For those unfamiliar, there are certain areas on Google Earth that are blotted out by black spots—just as the theory’s name states. The reason for these black spots has typically been blamed on camera glitches or other technological malfunctions/errors. Some think otherwise though, claiming that the black spots are hiding UFO bases or other secret government facilities that house secretive vehicles or weapons. Perhaps one day, we’ll go over this and get to the bottom of it. For now, we’re left to wonder what Google doesn’t want us to see.


#96: The Empty Internet This theory posits that the Internet is actually nowhere near as populated as we think it is and that most of the people we talk and interact with are actually bots.


#97: The Despair Code I don’t really know how to properly summarize this theory without rambling, but I’ll do my best to do so.


The Despair Code is the theory that we live in our own “universe” and nobody else does. Rather, those that we see out and about, along with our family members, are all in their own “universe”. How they appear is that they “project” their energy so that they’re there. However, in reality, they aren’t actually with you. They’re in their own reality and you’re all alone in your own universe.


This isn’t a very novel concept, it’s been theorized before and put forth. Where the Despair Code becomes unique in some capacity is that you can make your own universe as you see fit if you believe enough in changing something. For example, if I believe enough that people will read this, it will come true. If I believe that someone will offer to get me McDonald’s for lunch tomorrow, it will happen. If I believe that I’ll get another girlfriend, it will happen.


That’s the main catch to the concept of the Despair Code and while I will admit that I have instances where I’ve wished for something to happen and it has, most see the theory as a myopic view on life a la Solipsism. Despite that, there are a fair number of people who buy into it and are adamant that it’s the truth to how the universe operates.


#98: Lord of the Rings is Based on a True Story I covered this theory in December and if I’m to be perfectly honest, I still find it to be unbelievably silly. The idea is that J.R.R. Tolkien found the secret history of the world (an alien warlord from Saturn attempted to take over Earth and the denizens of the planet fought back against him and his clone army). Then the Great Flood described in Noah’s Ark happened and all of those fantasy creatures died. Tolkien wanted to reveal this and this wrote Lord of the Rings. The alien warlord became Sauron, the rings around Saturn became the Ring of Power, and the clone army became the Orcs. Certain nations also became the various races; the Norwegians are the elves and the Irish are the Hobbits. It’s a very peculiar theory and is definitely one of the more oddball ones out there. Despite that, it has those that believe it due to the concept of aliens visiting Earth long ago.


#99: QAnon A highly controversial figure in the current US political climate, Q is an unknown individual (or individuals) posting on 8kun (the successor to the now defunct image board 8chan). Q alleges to have information related to the Trump presidency and his efforts to drain the swamp and defeat the Deep State. Many have claimed Q to be a LARP or hoax (including former US Press Secretary Sean Spicer) though few have been deterred. To date, many left-wingers dread the potential fallout of Q being proven to be a hoax or fraud while many right-wingers beat the drum in QAnon’s name. Subscribers of Q believe it to be a military intelligence operation. It’s honestly one of the most incredible sights to behold as a moderate Republican; I’m no commentator, but the effect Q has had on America is unlike anything I could’ve ever imagined (even if it just a LARP). Heck, someone has even died because of Q (though the victim was a mobster).


That said, I feel it’s necessary to share exactly how Q speaks. So here are three examples. The first two were posted on February 6, 2020. The second is from February 7, 2020.

Q


If you want to look up more on Q, I’d normally suggest trying to find an unbiased source, but that’s proven to be exceedingly difficult. As such, if you’re interested in Q Proofs, there are videos up on YouTube and a Twitter user by the name of Praying Medic has been following Q for years (I myself have followed his insight as he’s a very consistent poster on Q and a rather kind man who helped guide me through a bit of Q’s lore once). If you’re interested in seeing it debunked, the Washington Post and other newspapers have done articles on it. If you want an unbiased look, I plan on writing about Q this year.


#100: HIV/AIDS This theory posits that the fatal STD was created by the CIA to specifically target minorities and homosexuals to eradicate them.


#101: Robert F. Kennedy’s Assassination The brother to President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy was the Attorney General and was a lot like his brother. He wasn’t fond of the mafia or the way that J. Edgar Hoover ran the show at the FBI. As such, many believe that Sirhan Sirhan (the man who’s said to have been Robert’s assassin) was either a patsy (just like Lee Harvey Oswald) or even brainwashed via MKUltra.


#102: The 2012 Aurora Shooting The massacre that took place at an Aurora, Colorado theater that was showing the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises has been the center of a conspiracy theory. Some claim that the shooter, James Holmes, was brainwashed by the CIA into committing the shooting in order to bring about stricter gun laws—if not outright repeal the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. Others believe that it was a false flag attack and nobody died; the victims being nothing more than crisis actors.


On one final note: a personal story. This shooting personally affected me so badly that to this day, any time I go to the movies, I still get paranoid whenever I see anyone leave the theater and not return—or simply shifting around suspiciously. I also ended up seeing The Dark Knight Rises on opening day at IMAX and was terrified that someone was going to start shooting.


#103: George W. Bush Created Hurricane Katrina Just as there are claims that Bush did 9/11, some believe that he used HAARP to create Hurricane Katrina. The reason for this is because Bush hates blacks.


#104: Alex Jones is Bill Hicks A theory had been presented that comedian Bill Hicks faked his death in 1994 and went on to become Infowars founder and host Alex Jones.


#105: Tupac Shakur Was A Hologram I’m certain this one is a joke, but I don’t care. The legends, mysteries, theories, and allegations that surround Tupac Shakur and his death are so wild and fun that leaving it out would be like leaving John F. Kennedy’s death out. In this case, the theory is as it advertises itself: Tupac was a hologram and never existed. It’s probably the strangest theory I’ve seen that surrounds him, but that’s not saying much when you consider everything else that surrounds him. Also, for the record, I think Suge Knight killed him. I’m open to any and all arguments against that belief though.


#106: Jesus Married Mary Magdalene One of the big driving forces behind the infamous Da Vinci Code, there’s a theory that claims that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalene (a prostitute who was about to be stoned to death before Jesus stopped them and said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”). It’s also claimed that Jesus had a child with Magdalene.


#107: Paul McCartney is Dead Often referred to as the “Paul is Dead” theory, this is a legend that’s spanned generations. There are claims that there are messages inserted into songs by The Beatles that reveal Paul died. There are also claims that he was replaced by a lookalike. Ultimately though, there has never been proof to back this up and Paul McCartney is still alive.


#108: Earth is the Only Real Planet Similar to the idea that space is fake, this theory puts forth the idea that Earth is the only real planet. Where the two theories differ is that the Moon is real in this one.


#109: God’s Ego Death This theory posits that God—generally of every theological representation—had an “Ego Death”. What that is is when one loses their subjective self-identity. In other words, God would want to cease being God. As for why, there are a few differing views on the exact reason, but the general consensus is that God has stopped loving humanity and has instead come to hate us. As such, he wishes for us to die so he can try again. However, we are a stubborn lot and do not wish to simply die. Rather, we persist through trial after trial, tribulation after tribulation, until we succeed.


#110: Emperor Nero Faked His Death Time to head back to the past for this one. Roman Emperor Caesar Nero was an extremely cruel man at best and the Antichrist (if you’re like me and subscribe to Full Preterism) at worst. He was by no means a friend to anyone—though the old saying of “Nero fiddled while Rome burned” isn’t true.


While history states that Nero killed himself when Rome finally revolted against him, some claim that he actually fled east, leaving Europe and going to Asia to escape his would-be killers. While there’s no historical evidence for this, it would fit into Nero’s character of being a weasel.


#111: Finland Doesn’t Exist The theory posited here is that Finland was created to allow the Russians and Japanese to fish in the waters. It started out as a joke, but eventually gained enough traction to be taken seriously.


#112: 23 And Me is Used for DNA Harvesting A fair number of people believe that the genealogy company 23 And Me is actually harvesting DNA for the New World Order. Some also suspect that it’s selling your information to the highest bidder. Others also suspect all of your DNA and information is being sent straight to the government.


#113: Mothman West Virginia’s famous humanoid cryptid has been at the center of a considerably large amount of conspiracies and rumors. Some claim that the Mothman was a scientist who worked at the TNT plant that resides near where the original sighting took place; after an accident, the scientist was mutated into the creature now known as Mothman. Others say that it’s an alien that’s being covered up by the government (some have reported the Men in Black being involved in the stories of Mothman). Some claim it’s merely an abnormally large owl or perhaps an undiscovered species.


Then there are the claims that Mothman is something significantly more supernatural. Prior to the creature vanishing, Mothman was seen flying over the Silver Bridge. A few months after this, the bridge collapsed. This had led to the belief that Mothman is a harbinger of doom. This has been backed up by a few other supposed sightings of the creature throughout the years, such as:


- The Black Bird of Chernobyl was seen in April of 1986. It was described as a large, dark, headless man that had enormous wings and red eyes. During the rash of sightings, the residents said that they had horrific nightmares and claimed that the creature called made threatening phone calls. Not long after the sightings began, on April 26th of the same year, the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster occurred.


- It’s been claimed by some that Mothman was seen flying near and/over the World Trade Center not long before the 9/11 attacks. There are some alleged photographs that show the creature in flight, but most have been dismissed as the work of photoshop.


- Some have claimed that Mothman flew over the Fukushima power plant prior to the meltdown.


Creatures like Mothman have been seen in the years since the West Virginian cryptid vanished. A popular one is the Batsquatch, a creature that bears a striking resemblance to Mothman. It supposedly was seen shortly before Mount Saint Helens erupted and is said to reside near it. Some have gone as far as to say that the creature may be Mothman and that its presence near the volcano is the reason that it erupted  


Skeptics have argued that the sightings of the cryptid prior to the bridge collapse and and the numerous other benign sightings of both Mothman and his doppelgangers have never brought about other disasters. Despite this, the theory continues to be presented and some anxiously await to see where Mothman will journey next.


#114: Boston Marathon Bombing While most agree that the Tsarnaev Brothers were behind the Boston Marathon Bombing, there’s a theory that posits that the FBI was behind it. The reason for this false flag is similar to every other supposed false flag: to erode the rights of Americans and work towards a police state.


#115: Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 This one is apparently quite popular in Russia. The airplane in question here was the one that Ukraine shot down and some were fearful that a war was going to breakout between the two nations. However, nothing came of it and it was generally thought it was a train accident. Not all agree though; some Russians believe that either the CIA or Mossad (the Israeli equivalent to the CIA) were the ones who shot the plane down in an attempt to trigger a conflict between Ukraine and Russia.


#116: Obama’s True Nationality Former US President Barack Obama has a considerable number of conspiracies that surround him. One of the most famous of these is the question that surrounds his nationality. While Obama does have a half-brother named Malick (who ironically supports President Trump) native to the country of Kenya, his birth certificate states that he was born in Hawaii. In spite of this, claims that he was born in Kenya persist to this day.  As a side note, while some may think that the certificate alone would silence many would-be truth seekers, that the doctor who verified his birth certificate died in a plane crash. That sent this theory into overdrive and many suspected that Obama had the plane shot down or tampered with. Lord willing, I’ll cover it sometime in the near future.


#117: The Dyatlov Pass Incident Okay, to be fair, this case has never officially been solved. So for all we know, there is truth to these theories. Some suspect the Soviet government (and the current Russian government) are covering up how aliens were responsible for the deaths of the nine hikers. Others say that a Yeti killed them while some speculate the blast wave from a nuclear test caused their deaths. Some have even out the two theories together, claiming that the nuclear test scared the hikers and the Yeti; the latter suspecting the fleeing hikers for being responsible for the terrifying noise and flash of light and killing them out of fear and self defense.


#118: Robert Mueller the Child Molester This theory comes courtesy of Alex Jones and it’s one that I only recently discovered when looking around for some good theories to fill this list. According to Jones, the former FBI director was—during his tenure as the Special Counsel—the “king of the swamp” who had “come to kill America”. He also claimed that late Arizona senator John McCain was the real leader of the Democratic Party.


A year after this, Jones made what I think may very well be one of the most fantastical and outlandish accusations I’ve ever seen him make and mind you, I’ve seen him claim that Hillary Clinton is a literal demon. According to Jones, Mueller—who’s a former United States Marine and is generally regarded as the man who helped turn the FBI’s image around and finally helped purge some of the memories of J. Edgar Hoover—was, well, I’ll let Jones himself speak. Per CNBC:


“Everyone’s so scared of Mueller, they’d let Mueller rape kids in front of people, which he did,” Jones said in July. He hedged the claim later in the broadcast, noting that “the word is he doesn’t have sex with kids, he just controls it all. Can you imagine being a monster like that?”


As a side note: Jacob Wohl, a kid who I’m almost certain is the living definition of a rat-faced bastard, claimed to have been contacted by women who were sexually assaulted by Mueller. He threw a press conference and got enough egg in his face to be a walking plate of sunny-side up yolk.


Anyways, after these quite remarkable claims, Jones went on to say he would “take down” Mueller and said this:


“That’s a demon I will take down, or I’ll die trying. So that’s it. It’s going to happen, we’re going to walk out in the square, politically, at high noon, and he’s going to find out whether he makes a move man, make the move first, and then it’s going to happen. It’s not a joke. It’s not a game. It’s the real world. Politically. You’re going to get it, or I’m going to die trying, bitch.”


While Mueller found no evidence that Trump and his team colluded with Russia, I have not heard any news on Mueller raping children or being taken down by an overweight Texan whose voice physically hurts to listen to. If I am wrong, leave a comment and I’ll amend for my folly.


#119: The Cure For Cancer is Being Covered Up Cancer has been the bane of many humans. While funding has helped get us ways to put it into remission or even help people defeat it, many still wish that the incredible amount of funding that Cancer research has gotten would yield a cure.


Though what if there was a cure?


Some ardent truth seekers believe there is one. Though why withhold it? Some believe that it’s because the funding that the researchers get is greater than the prestige and numerous awards that would be gotten should it be given to the public. Whatever the case may be, there are many who believe this theory and it remains an extremely prevalent one among those who are opponents to Big Pharma.


#120: Momo You likely all know of Momo. That really weird Internet creepypasta with that photo of a bug-eyed J-Horror spirit. If you don’t know: there was this big thing called the “Momo Challenge” where you had to do dangerous tasks or else Momo would kill you. It caused a lot of controversy and was generally seen as something like the Blue Whale Game.


Anyways, there’s a conspiracy that Google or YouTube created the Momo Challenge in order to distract from the controversy centering on Elsagate. While this theory never took off, there are some who are adamant that YouTube was desperate enough to deflect from Elsagate, even if their solution proved to be leave quite a blemish.


#121: The Third Shooter At Columbine Many of those who were at Columbine Highschool on the day that Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris carried out the horrible shooting have claimed that there was a third shooter. Those that subscribe to this theory suspect that it was Robert Perry, a close friend of Dylan and Eric’s. Many point to how security footage on the day of the massacre has never been released and how Perry was put into witness protection after the massacre. There are also theories about how Dylan and Eric were also brainwashed into committing the shooting in order to create gun laws.


#122: The Utbor “Twins” Supposedly, there were three conjoined children who were separated at birth, but they only lived to the age of three. Throughout their short lives, they only spoke in Simpsons quotes.


#123: Dinosaurs Never Existed I’m sure there are some who grew up with extremely fundamentalist parents (or with friends who had parents like that) that have heard of this theory before. The idea is that dinosaurs never existed and the fossils we see in museums, movies, television shows, and books are either planted there by Satan or the Satanic New World Order.


#124: Skyquakes Every now and then, videos will go viral of mysterious and unnerving sounds that come from seemingly nowhere. They’re called Skyquakes and they’ve been the focus of numerous theories, such as top secret military aircraft, UFOs, and signs that the End Days are upon us. In reality, most suspect they’re caused by meteors and other naturally occurring phenomenon.


#125: California Wildfires Were Caused by an Energy Weapon Test I once saw a Facebook post that claimed that the reason for the California wildfires was due to California trying to ban the Bible. You know, those claims aren’t anything rare, but they’re easily proven wrong since legislation in a state’s government is typically public information. You know what isn’t though? Energy weapons!


That’s right, some believe that the devastating wildfires that set the Golden State ablaze were the product of an energy weapon being tested. It must’ve worked given the state lit up like Dresden during World War II for months. Now I wonder if the Australian fires are the result of another energy weapon test.


#126: The Ark of the Covenant Some believe that the Biblical Ark of the Covenant (which is said to have the capability to annihilate an entire army) has been discovered and is being kept in Fort Knox. It’s also said that the Holy Grail and Cross that Jesus was crucified on are kept there with it.


#127: Planned Extinction Event Some believe that there’s an Extinction Level Event that’s been planned and is ready to be enacted at an unknown date in the future. It’s likely this event will be a nuclear holocaust, but some suspect that the subjugation of humanity under a Satanic one world government (and a subsequent depopulation act) will lead to a partial extinction.


#128: Mount Everest’s Phantom Hang Gliders There have been reports of “hang gliders” from those who’ve ascended Mount Everest. Truth seekers have posited that these are actually UFOs that aliens have landed on the mountain—or they’ve outright set up bases on the mountain.


#129: Princess Diana The death of Princess Diana is one that’s been at the center of an absurd amount of controversy. Her body’s been dug up more times than I care to count, footage of the car accident has been analyzed through every conceivable angle, and I’m sure they’ve employed the zoom and enhance technology from NCIS to find out the truth. Ultimately, it’s always been concluded to be an accident. Despite that, many still believe she was murdered by the royal family for her publicity and general carefree personality.


#130: Teeth Are Implanted At Birth You know the teeth that the tooth fairy took and gave you some money so you could get candy? Yeah, neither do I. Cheap bastard. Anyways, some think that your teeth are implanted by doctors at birth.


#131: Continents Beyond the Ice Wall I want to just say: of every conspiracy on this list, this is the absolute coolest. The idea is that the Earth is flat and that the ice wall (which is Antarctica) isn’t an endlessly no-go zone. Rather, after some time, there are more continents and, as such, more humans on an endless and unfathomably massive world.


#132: The Death of Honeybees It’s been claimed that food corporations are pushing for—and actively working to speed up—the death of honeybees so they can fill their products with GMOs.


#133: Solar Plexus Clown Gliders Supposedly, there is an evil entity that corrupts you via the “Solar Plexus” chakra in your body if you so much as meditate, read, or speak the words “Solar Plexus Clown Gliders”. When it corrupts your Solar Plexus, you begin to see and experience things thanks to its corruptive nature. Of course, due to how ones chakras are typically ignored, it’s easy to become corrupted (or to tempt fate).


#134: Martin Luther King Jr’s Assassination An incredibly prevalent conspiracy claims that the civil rights activist was assassinated by the FBI or CIA in an attempt to halt the movement. Although COINTELPRO was ongoing at the time, most have agreed that James Earl Ray was the man who murdered King.


#135: Extremely Low Frequency Some truth seekers hold the belief that extremely low frequency (ELF) waves can be used to mind control people. Lucky for us, tinfoil blocks these waves. Take that, government! Easily obtainable products defeat you yet again!


#136: The 2017 Las Vegas Shooting This is a theory I wrote about last year, but I don’t believe that it was anywhere near as good as it could (or should) have been. I digress though, the 2017 Las Vegas Shooting is the worst mass shooting in American history and there are a lot of oddities that surround it. The shooter—Stephen Paddock—had no motive and was a nobody in the eyes of most (though he did supposedly have child pornography on his computer). If there ever was a motive, the FBI has never released it. Paddock also has an obscene amount of weaponry and most—if not all—security footage has never been released. 


These factors, along with a plethora of others, have led a fair number of people to suspect that Paddock was either a patsy, an undercover CIA agent, or a member of ISIS. Some also outright suspect that ISIS was actually behind the shooting itself (they claimed responsibility for the shooting). The theory goes that Paddock was a CIA agent who was a part of a weapons exchange. The deal went south, Paddock was murdered, and ISIS jihadis got revenge by using the weapons to massacre concert goers. The government blamed it on Paddock to not incriminate themselves by letting it be known that they were selling arms to ISIS.


#137: Online Gaming Spying This one is actually very plausible given the NSA spying scandal. I also recall once reading that it was believed that World of Warcraft’s chat would be monitored by the FBI (I think it was the FBI) in case someone threatened to commit an act of terrorism or a mass shooting. I don’t believe anything ever came of that, but the general basis for this theory isn’t that crazy.


That said, the idea for this theory is that all online games are monitored and listened to by various intelligence and security organizations; the FBI, NSA, and so on. That’s right folks, you’re already on a dozen lists. 1984 reference goes here.


#138: Hunter S. Thompson Was Murdered It’s believed by some that the author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was shot by a government assassin as he was writing about the World Trade Center.


#139: Dinosaurs Helped Build the Pyramids Without a hint of false advertising, this theory posits that dinosaurs assisted in building the legendary pyramids of Egypt. This theory is also sometimes connected to the Young Earth claim.


#140: The Russian Apartment Bombings Officially, the Russian Apartment Bombings are said to have been carried out by Chechnyian terrorists. However, some claim that this wasn’t the case. One of the most prominent figures to go against the official report was ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko alleges that it was an inside job by Vladimir Putin’s government. Not only that, but Litvinenko himself is at the center of a conspiracy (one that he outright claimed that Putin had him assassinated; he was poisoned by Plutonium-210).


#141: The Beatles Never Existed A very popular music conspiracy theory claims that the legendary British band was comprised of numerous lookalikes rather than the four men that made up The Beatles.


#142: The Second Sun Connected in some capacity to Nibiru due to the second Sun “hiding” the planet, the theory of the Second Sun is one that was actually at one point considered possible, but has now been disproven. Despite that, there are still those who believe that our solar system consists of two stars and that NASA is covering it up.


#143: Joan Rivers Was Murdered Comedian Joan Rivers made a comment to a reporter saying that Michelle Obama is a man and that everyone knows that. Not long after, Rivers passed away. Some suspect that President Obama was so outraged by this remark that he had Rivers killed.


#144: China’s Real Population China has a bit of a rough history when it comes to geopolitics (and that’s putting it mildly). I could sit here for quite some time and go over it, but I’m not here to poke the bear; they have enough going on with the Wuhan Coronavirus. Anyways, of every allegation and conspiracy I’ve heard about them, this one is unique. It claims that China’s population is artificially inflated by the government. For what reason, I must confess that I’m not sure.


#145: Texas Senator Ted Cruz is Robert Kardashian The father of the Kardashian sisters, Robert Kardashian became known in the public’s eye due to his friendship with O.J. Simpson (who he also served as the defense attorney for Simpson’s 1995 murder trial). Kardashian died on September 30, 2003 from esophageal cancer at the age of 59. However, some believe he faked his death and became Texas Senator Ted Cruz.


#146: Original Doll I’m sure most of us who were growing up during the 2000s recall hearing about Britney Spears’ meltdown. It spawned that “Leave Britney alone!” video that everyone loved to bring up. Well, there’s a theory that there was more to it than we’ve been let on to believe. For starters, there’s a belief that the Bush administration orchestrated it to take the heat off of them due to the Iraq War.


However, the more juicy theory comes in the form of something called Original Doll. This was supposedly an album that Britney was working on prior to her meltdown. Supposedly, it had a lot of transparency and numerous attacks on the entertainment industry as a whole. This was due to it having precisely zero involvement from any sort of production crew and agents; the album was, through and through, hers and hers alone. However, it was soon buried by the producers and that’s when Britney lost it.


There’s supposedly one single that exists called Mona Lisa. It’s said to have cryptic lyrics and a chorus which is said to sound like, “she’s been cloned”. I leave it up to you to decide what’s more likely. Britney melted down to Bush or she melted down due to a scrapped album that attacked the Illuminati.


#147: Real Humans Died Out Long Ago This theory is simple and ties into the idea that our ancestors were significantly more advanced than we believed them to be and we are but a remnant of that. The idea also posits that the most advanced of them were giants that stood between 8 and 11+ feet tall. As for when this real human society was around, the general claim is that it was somewhere around 10,000 years ago, but some have put it at as little as 8,000 years.


As for what happened, we—the more primal species—hunted these giants to extinction. However, there are claims that they were driven into hiding or underground.


#148: Stevie Wonder Isn’t Blind There are claims, conspiracies, and rumors that singer Stevie Wonder isn’t blind. There’s nothing more to it than that. At least, not that I can see.


#149: The Roman Empire Still Exists This one has two versions to it. Some believe that the Roman Empire still rules over the world symbolically while others think it’s literal. In the case of the former, some believe that an entity that’s as tyrannical and authoritarian as the Roman Empire rules over us (e.g. the Illuminati/New World Order). In the case of the latter, some believe that the Roman Empire never fell and that it rules over us in the shadows; likely having changed its name/guise to that of the Illuminati.


#150: The Hoover Dam It’s claimed that there’s a stargate in the Hoover Dam, along with tunnels that lead directly to Area 51.


#151: Creepy Clown Sightings Remember those creepy clowns? I do, there was one in the parking lot not far from my house. Weird fella, but it was raining. I felt bad for him.


Anyways, there’s a theory that the epidemic of creepy clowns was a plot by the Illuminati, who also designed the clowns. It was a plot to make the clowns appeal to children (I don’t think they really would’ve liked the horrific look of the clowns that were seen) in order to make them fall to Satan and Hell. Others also think that they were a trigger for monarch mind control, which utilizes subtle symbols to force those who’ve been pre-conditioned to carry out whatever mission was planted into their heads.


#152: The 7/7 Bombings It’s been said that the London 7/7 bombers were unwitting patsies and that the government was behind the attack. 


#153: Muammar Gaddafi The former leader of Libya, there’s an extremely prevalent, pushed, and all around believed theory that Gaddafi was overthrown by the Obama administration in order to gain access to oil and to assist in the creation of an Islamic caliphate. Some also suspect that the claims that Gaddafi’s tyranny wasn’t true and that those he had killed were in fact radical Islamists.


#154: Abraham Lincoln Was Killed by Jesuits To be perfectly honest, the Jesuit society itself is a conspiracy, but I can’t summarize that in any way without rambling (kinda like now). That said, some suspect they—for whatever reason—were the true assassin’s of President Lincoln.


#155: Hitler is Alive An extremely popular and famous claim, this theory posits that the leader of Nazi Germany didn’t commit suicide in the bunker he allegedly died in. Rather, he fled to South America, Antarctica, or the Moon and is still alive, plotting his revenge.


#156: Queen Elizabeth II is a Cannibal The Queen of England has a fair number of conspiracies that surround her. One of the most popular is that she’s a cannibal, a fact that’s allowed her to live for as long as she has, though some suspect it’s made her immortal.


#157: The Ice Bucket Challenge Was a Satanic Ritual Although it was a popular trend in order to raise awareness for ALS, some believe that the Ice Bucket Challenge was actually a Satanic Ritual—or rather a Satanic Baptism in order to inadvertenly induct numerous pre-teens and teenagers into the inevitable religion of the New World Order.


#158: The Area 51 Caller The late Art Bell used to host a radio show called Coast to Coast AM. It’s still hosted and discusses various paranormal, supernatural, and conspiratorial topics. Bell himself can best be described as a precursor to Alex Jones (though I believe that Bell was considerably less chaotic in his speaking).


On one of the broadcasts, Bell received a call from a man who was clearly in extreme distress. Here’s a transcript of the call.


Art: On my Area 51 line, you're on the air, hello.


Male caller: Hello, Art?


Art: Yes


Caller [sounds frightened]: I don't have a whole lot of time.


Art: Well, look, let's begin by finding out if you're using this line
properly or not.


Caller: OK, in Area 51?


Art: Yes. Are you an employee or are you now?


Caller: I'm a former employee. I, I was let go on a medical discharge
about a week ago and, and... [chokes] I kind of been running across the
country. Damn, I don't know where to start, they're, they're gonna,
they'll triangulate on this position really soon.


Art: So you can't spend a lot of time on the phone, so give us something
quick.


Caller [voice breaking up with apparent suppressed crying]: OK, um, um,
OK, what we're thinking of as aliens, Art, they're extra-dimensional
beings, that, an earlier precursor of the space program they made
contact with. They are not what they claim to be. They've infiltrated a
lot of aspects of, of, of the military establishment, particularly the
Area 51.


The disasters that are coming, they, the military, [long pause] I'm sorry, the
government knows about them. And there's a lot of safe areas in this
world that they could begin moving the population to now, Art.


Art: So they're not doing, not doing anything.


Caller: They are not. They want those major population centers wiped out
so that the few that are left will be more easily controllable...."


[Broadcast begins to break up]
Art [fragment]: ...discharged...


Caller [uncontrolled sobbing, then fragment]: I say we g ....


[Dead air]


Indeed, the radio broadcast was knocked off the air (the one and only time this ever happened during the time that Art Bell hosted the show). When the show went back on the air, the caller had hung up and things continued as normal.


Some time later, the caller phoned in again and said it was all a prank. Some don’t believe this and suspect that it was either damage control or the worker had been forced to do so.


#159: The Pancreas Doesn’t Exist There are some who claim that the pancreas isn’t real. Nothing else to really add.


#160: The Bermuda Triangle To call the Bermuda Triangle legendary would be an astonishingly massive understatement. It’s one of the most famous mysteries in the world and has spawned an insurmountable number of theories. They include:


- UFOs abducting the passengers, crew, or both of whatever is out at sea.


 - Magnetic activity from past civilizations (such as Atlantis) throwing planes and ships off course, leading them to a watery demise.


- The 4,000+ foot long Bermuda Beast.


- Black holes.


- Time portals that send planes and ships to another time period.


- Wormholes that send planes and ships to another reality, planet, or location.


While it’s been claimed that the number of planes and ships lost in the Bermuda Triangle isn’t out of the ordinary, some are adamant this isn’t the case and that there’s something that’s being covered up.


#161: Bohemian Grove A very prominent theory, this place is said to be home to Satanic/Occult rituals among other things. It’s located in Monte Rio, California in the United States and is officially described as “gentlemen’s club” for some of the most influential and prominent men on the planet. It’s off limits to those not a part of it.


#162: Ghosts Are Biological Beings Some believe that ghosts are in fact real creatures and not the spirits of those who have passed away. This is honestly an interesting concept and I’m curious if anyone has ever made a book or film based around it.


#163: Human History Has Been Faked Alternative History has been a concept for quite some time, though I have no idea how prevalent this theory is in the modern day. I digress though, the theory posits that what we perceive as documented history is 100% false and that we’re all being lied to.


#164: President Dwight D. Eisenhower Was a Communist The first president to assume the office with no prior political experience (the next would be the current president—Donald Trump—who is the first president to not have prior military experience), Eisenhower was a very fascinating man. He’s regarded as one of the best presidents ever and was the man who authorized the creation of NASA. However, some claim that the former military general was also a staunch communist. This is likely due to Eisenhower not viewing the far right in a favorable manner. Below is a letter that Dwight sent to his brother, Edgar. A link to the full page that I got it from can be viewed here.


November 8, 1954
To Edgar Newton Eisenhower


Dear Ed:
I think that such answer as I can give to your letter of November first will be arranged in reverse order–at least I shall comment first on your final paragraph.


You keep harping on the Constitution; I should like to point out that the meaning of the Constitution is what the Supreme Court says it is. Consequently no powers are exercised by the Federal government except where such exercise is approved by the Supreme Court (lawyers) of the land.


I admit that the Supreme Court has in the past made certain decisions in this general field that have been astonishing to me. A recent case in point was the decision in the Phillips case. Others, and older ones, involved “interstate commerce.” But until some future Supreme Court decision denies the right and responsibility of the Federal government to do certain things, you cannot possibly remove them from the political activities of the Federal government.


Now it is true that I believe this country is following a dangerous trend when it permits too great a degree of centralization of governmental functions. I oppose this–in some instances the fight is a rather desperate one. But to attain any success it is quite clear that the Federal government cannot avoid or escape responsibilities which the mass of the people firmly believe should be undertaken by it. The political processes of our country are such that if a rule of reason is not applied in this effort, we will lose everything–even to a possible and drastic change in the Constitution. This is what I mean by my constant insistence upon “moderation” in government. Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.


To say, therefore, that in some instances the policies of this Administration have not been radically changed from those of the last is perfectly true. Both Administrations levied taxes, both maintained military establishments, customs officials, and so on.


But in all governmental fields of action a combination of purpose, procedure and objectives must be considered if you are to get a true evaluation of the relative merits.


You say that the foreign policy of the two Administrations is the same. I suppose that even the most violent critic would agree that it is well for us to have friends in the world, to encourage them to oppose communism both in its external form and in its internal manifestations, to promote trade in the world that would be mutually profitable between us and our friends (and it must be mutually profitable or it will dry up), and to attempt the promotion of peace in the world, negotiating from a position of moral, intellectual, economic and military strength.


No matter what the party is in power, it must perforce follow a program that is related to these general purposes and aspirations. But the great difference is in how it is done and, particularly, in the results achieved.


A year ago last January we were in imminent danger of losing Iran, and sixty percent of the known oil reserves of the world. You may have forgotten this. Lots of people have. But there has been no greater threat that has in recent years overhung the free world. That threat has been largely, if not totally, removed. I could name at least a half dozen other spots of the same character.


This being true, how can anyone be so unaware of what is happening as to say that this Administration has conducted foreign affairs under the same policies as did the former Administration? As a matter of fact, if you will press any individual who brings to you all these strictures and comments, I venture that your experience will be the same as mine. That experience is that these individuals have no idea of what the “foreign policy” of the previous Administration was and what the present one is. They have heard certain slogans, such as “give away programs.” They have no slightest idea as to what has been the effect of these programs in sustaining American security and prosperity. Moreover, they have no idea whatsoever as to comparative size of them now as compared to even two or three years ago.


You say that these critics also complain about the continuance of “controls,” presumably over our economy. There is nothing in your letter that shows such complete ignorance as to what has actually happened as does this term. When we came into office there were Federal controls exercised over prices, wages, rents, as well as over the allocation and use of raw materials. The first thing this Administration did was to set about the elimination of those controls. This it did amid the most dire predictions of disaster, “run away” inflation, and so on and so on. We were proved right, but I must say that if the people of the United States do not even remember what took place, one is almost tempted to regret the agony of study, analysis and decision that was then our daily ration.


You also talk about “bad political advice” I am getting. I always assumed that lawyers attempted accuracy in their statements. How do you know that I am getting any political advice? Next, if I do get political advice, how do you know that it is not weighted in the direction that you seem to think it should be–although I am tempted at times to believe that you are just thrashing around rather than thinking anything through to a definite conclusion? So how can you say I am getting “bad” advice; why don’t you just assume I am stupid, trying to wreck the nation, and leave our Constitution in tatters?


I assure you that you have more reason, based on sixty-four years of contact, to say this than you do to make the bland assumption that I am surrounded by a group of Machiavellian characters who are seeking the downfall of the United States and the ascendancy of socialism and communism in the world. Incidentally, I notice that everybody seems to be a great Constitutionalist until his idea of what the Constitution ought to do is violated– then he suddenly becomes very strong for amendments or some peculiar and individualistic interpretation of his own.


Finally, I must assure you again that I am delighted to get your own honest criticisms, particularly if you will only take the trouble to lay down the facts on which you reach what seem to me to be some remarkable conclusions. But the mere repetition of aphorisms and political slogans and newspaper headlines leaves me cold.


I am sorry you are not going to be at Abilene. It would be easier to tell you these things than to write them–except that by this method I hope to make you do a little thinking rather than devote yourself just to the winning of a noisy argument. As ever


P.S. I attach a paragraph and a cartoon that came to me in the same mail as did your letter. At least it represents a different viewpoint. Incidentally, it comes from one of the most successful businessmen in the nation.


#165: Oil is Made From Humans Although humans do produce oil, it isn’t the type that leads to the United States dropping 40,000 rounds of freedom onto dirty terrorists. In spite of such a monumental difference in oily goodness, some believe that we humans are what freedom oil is made from. Goodness, why do I hear Apache Helicopters?


#166: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion Oh look, it’s this one. This book is quite fascinating as its author has never been identified, though most suspect it’s plagiarized from other sources. The actual content supposedly details a plan for Jewish world domination (Zionism is more or less Jewish nationalism). The book has caused an extremely large amount of controversy and there are some who still believe the book to be a legitimate guide on how Jews will go about trying to take over the world.


#167: Cigarettes Are Healthy According to some, cigarettes aren’t dangerous and in fact can have some extreme health benefits (like treating or even preventing schizophrenia, alzheimers, and dementia). Some have also claimed that it can help maintain high testosterone levels in men, this keeping them manly, strong, and masculine.


#168: Mountains Are Trees A fairly interesting theory, this one posits that mountains are really gigantic trees. Does this mean that aliens that set up shop in mountains live in tree houses?


#169: The Hollow Earth A theory that’s seen itself out to remarkably good use in the Monsterverse (the cinematic universe that features Kaiju legend Godzilla and King Kong), the theory about the Hollow Earth is that simply. Either we live inside of the Earth (this is the significantly lesser believed version) or the Earth is hollow and there isn’t a molten core or mantle. Rather, there’s an entire world beneath our feet that we don’t know about. There are claims that tunnels exist in the Arctic, Antarctic, and beneath the ocean, that Jesus was a superhuman from the Hollow Earth, and that the Nazis fled into the Hollow Earth.


#170: Mad Gasser of Mattoon It’s believed by some that the Mad Gasser of Mattoon was an extraterrestrial being and that its existence has been covered up by the government.


#171: The Illuminati Killed Robin Williams After an episode of Family Guy aired where Peter gained the power to turn everything he touched into legendary comedian Robin Williams, some believed it was a message from the Illuminati that they were behind the death of the beloved comic.


#172: No Heaven, Only Hell A terrifying prospect for any religious person, this theory claims there is no such thing as Heaven. When someone dies, the one and only destination for them is Hell.


#173: Aliens Built the Moon There’s a theory that claims that our Moon was built by aliens, likely as a place where they could reside as they observed us.


#174: Solipsism This is likely something you’ve either heard of or thought about more than once in your life. Solipsism is, to put it simply, the belief that you’re the only living entity in the universe and everyone else is an NPC of sorts. While not necessarily a conspiracy theory in the traditional sense, some believe it to be akin to the “reality is a simulation” theory.


#175: Paul Walker Was Murdered The star of the wildly popular Fast and Furious series is believed by some to have been killed after discovering that a charity was committing fraud. The belief stems from what some claim is a drone missile that’s visible in CCTV footage of the accident.


#176: Hotel California The theories behind The Eagles’ song “Hotel California” originates from the cryptic and ominous lyrics (You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave). To some, it’s a message about how you can never leave the world of fame. Others claim that Glenn Frey was trying to allude to how the music industry (and likewise, the film industry) was run by Satanists.


#177: Manatees Are Humans The idea of sea humans is nothing new (be they mermaids/mermen or humans from head to toe). This theory however puts forth the idea that manatees are an offshoot of humans and that the truth is being covered up. Oh the humanatee!


#178: Rigged Elections This theory posits that all political elections are rigged and that one’s vote doesn’t matter whatsoever. All is predetermined by the powers that be.


#179: Saved By The Bell Was About Satanism It’s said that if you play the theme song to the classic show Saved by the Bell, you’ll hear a Satanic message. Cast photos also show the actors and actresses flash the OK sign (which conspiracy theorists say represents 666).


#180: President Trump is a Democratic Plant The idea is that Trump was picked by the Democratic Party in order to destroy the image of the Republican Party. This theory predates that notion as some believed that Trump’s nomination as the Republican candidate in 2016 was a way to cement Hillary Clinton’s victory. That, naturally, didn’t happen.


#181: Frozen Was Made to Manipulate Google’s Algorithm Some believe that the ridiculously popular Disney film, Frozen, was made to cover up search results about how Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen.


#182: Andrew Breitbart Was Murdered A controversial figure to be certain, Andrew Breitbart was the founder of the right-wing news outlet “Breitbart”. When he was in charge, the outlet was generally seen as libertarian in its political leaning. It wasn’t until Steve Bannon took over after Andrew’s death that it got its reputation as being far-right.


As for Andrew’s death, it was well known that he was a braggart and quite a loudmouth, even going so far as to ask on Twitter how it wasn’t public knowledge that John Podesta was a pedophile. Here’s the tweet—which was posted February 4, 2011—in question:


How prog-guru John Podesta isn't household name as world class underage sex slave op cover-upperer defending unspeakable dregs escapes me.


That, among other comments he made, have led some to suspect that President Obama (or the Deep State) had Andrew assassinated so he wouldn’t uncover the truth.


#183: Mel’s Hole A man by the name of Mel who called into Art Bell’s show, Coast to Coast AM, claimed there was a hole on his property that was miles deep. Even stranger, when a neighbor threw their deceased dog into the hole, it appeared near their house a few days later, alive and well. Not long after this, suspicious Men in Black told Mel that his property was no longer his. Some truth seekers believe that this mysterious hole had magical properties, but it’s never been and most believe it to be a hoax.


#184: Operation Northwoods Operation Northwoods isn’t necessarily a conspiracy given it’s been declassified by the government. However, some still believe that it’s been enacted and likewise proves that false flag attacks have been carried out in order to invade other countries. As for what Northwoods was, it was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the tenure of President Kennedy. It called for the CIA (along with other agencies) to commit false flag terrorist attacks, then to blame them all on Cuba in order to justify a war with the country. These attacks included bombings and hijackings. Here’s an excerpt from it.


The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.


The attacks were to be things like bombings and hijackings. While Northwoods was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, President Kennedy ultimately rejected the idea.


#185: The I-70 Killer An unknown serial killer who’s said to have murdered six or more store clerks between 1992 and 1994. From what I can gather, this serial killer has his conspiracy roots embedded in the idea that I-70 in what’s called “The Mason-Dixon Line”. At least, this is why I think he’s tied into the realm of conspiracy. I digress, here’s what a quick Google search yields about that:


The Mason–Dixon line, also called the Mason and Dixon line or Mason and Dixon’s line, was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in the resolution of a border dispute involving Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware in Colonial America.


#186: Christine Blasey Ford Was An Actress Some believe that the woman who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault was an actress paid for by Coca-Cola (as Ford sipped Coke during her testimony). Some suspect this actress was Amy Schumer, a distant cousin to current Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.


#187: Brett Kavanaugh Has an Evil Twin Accompanying the above theory, there’s one that claims that Brett Kavanaugh’s lookalike or doppelganger was responsible for the sexual assault of Dr. Ford. Kavanaugh was, supposedly, unaware of this.


#188: The Murder of Seth Rich Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich has been at the center of a very prominent theory ever since his murder in 2016. A lot of right-wing folks believe he was killed for leaking DNC emails to Julian Assange (the founder of WikiLeaks, an organization offering a cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of the murderer). Officially, it’s said that he was shot and killed in a robbery that went south (though nothing was stolen). His killer has never been caught and despite pleas from Rich’s family to stop using Seth as a symbol of someone who was murdered by the Deep State, Clinton's, and/or Shadow Government, many still see him as a patriot who helped get President Trump elected. This could likely be closed if Assange simply gave a straightforward answer. Though some disregard that if that actually happened.


#189: TWA Flight 800 Not long after it took off, TransWorld Airlines Flight 800 blew up over the Atlantic Ocean, killing everyone on board. Around 97% of the wreckage was recovered and it was believed to have been related to a fuel line malfunction. Some don’t believe this and suspect that either a bomb exploded on board or a naval test/exercise went awry and a missile struck the airplane (some reported seeing a bright object fly towards the plane).


#190: The Statue of Liberty Represents Lucifer This theory is very simple and is as it reads. The Statue of Liberty is in fact meant to represent the devil and was a gift by the Illuminati/New World Order to represent the United States as something of their new headquarters.


#191: Meghan Markle Is a Prop to Reabsorb the US Ever wondered if the British really got over the American Revolution? Well, have I got a conspiracy for you! When Prince Harry married Meghan Markle—an American actress—the tabloids went wild. You’d think there was a collective outbreak of rabies a la 28 Days Later. Rumors flew that Queen II was fuming and much more. Alas, this wasn’t true and the two got married because they’re truly in love.


Or are they?


Some believe that the reality is that this is all a ploy for the British to take over the United States of America once more and bring back the British empire. God save the queen!


#192: Earthquake Control Much like HAARP, it’s believed that there is either a top secret government facility, or a machine, that is capable of triggering earthquakes. In January of 2020, Iran had a few earthquakes that occurred near a nuclear facility. This happened shortly after the retaliatory strikes for the death of General Solemeni. It’s been claimed that President Trump triggered these earthquakes to get Iran to back off. Others also believe the 2011 earthquake in Haiti was caused by such a machine in order to take the oil there.


#193: Glenn Frey Was Murdered There’s a claim that the singer and songwriter for The Eagles was murdered by Big Pharma. Personally, I think Don Henley was responsible. Please don’t sue me, Don. It’s just a joke.


#194: The Twilight Zone Movie Accident Was Deliberate While the footage of the real deaths has been confirmed to not be in the film, the story behind the the fatal accident that left actor Vic Morrow and child actors Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen dead is said to have more to it than we’ve been led to believe. This is because some truth seekers insist that it was, in fact, a deliberate murder. As the theory goes, Morrow had learned that director John Landis was molesting children on set and was going to blow the whistle. However, after Landis caught wind of this, he ordered the pilot to fly lower to the ground. The pilot complied and, after a mortar effect was detonated, the helicopter tail’s rotor blade was blown off and decapitated both Morrow and Le. Chen, meanwhile, was crushed to death by the helicopter’s right landing skid.


#195: The Mandela Effect I, personally, have always thought that this theory was ridiculous. Alas, I can’t exactly speak given I have my own peculiar beliefs/views (or at least, I think I do in the eyes of numerous people). The Mandela Effect gets its name from the belief that South African leader Nelson Mandela had died in the 1980s (he died in December of 2013). Supposedly, many people were certain he’d died decades prior, even claiming to have read about it in the newspaper or having heard about it on television.


Some have chalked the Mandela Effect up to our timeline correcting itself when a sort of “hiccup” occurs and something that wasn’t meant to happen accidentally does. Others believe that time travelers fix the past to either save the future or amend for a major accident that would happen. While no evidence for this exists, false memories are prone to happening. Truth seekers disagree and are adamant that there’s more to the Mandela Effect than has ever been let on.


#196: River Phoenix Faked His Death Ah, this is a good one. This theory claims that River Phoenix—the brother of actor Joaquin Phoenix (who starred in 2019’s Joker)—faked his death and became one of two people. The first is Rivers Cuomo, the lead vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist, and songwriter for the band Weezer.


The second, and the one that I find the funniest, is that he became Mark Dice. For those who don’t know who he is, he’s a right-wing commentator and conspiracy theorist/truth seeker. He’s written books on the Illuminati, Satanic Cabal, and has become extremely successful. I must also give him credit for being entertaining to watch at times (even if I don’t agree with him on many, many points). That said, I have no idea why River Phoenix would fake his death and wait quite some time to become a YouTuber, but it’s a theory that exists and I find it quite amusing.


#197: There Are No Conspiracies This theory is really, really weird. The idea is that the powers that be—or a malicious entity—create every single conspiracy that we all know (no matter how insane it may seem) to throw us off from what’s really going on.


#198: Time Moves in Reverse As advertised on the tin, this theory posits that time as we know it moved in reverse. Presumably, this means that the end of the world was the beginning and the beginning is the end.


#199: The Roman Catholic Church Runs the World Sometimes referred to as “Satan’s counterfeit church”, this theory posits that the true ruler of the world is the Roman Catholic Church. They are like—or really are—the Illuminati.


#200: Gary DeVore A screenwriter in Hollywood who was working on a script for a remake of The Big Steal. However, he ended up going missing and was found dead beneath a bridge. What’s made this case famous is the fact he was missing his hands. Authorities ultimately ruled his death an accident (the most common explanation being that he fell asleep behind the wheel). However, there are a few strange aspects that have led some to think he was murdered. Below is a part of a Reddit comment that I sadly can no longer find since I never bothered to save it. I apologize to the commenter if they happen to read this.


According to police, Devore would’ve had to have been going “110km/h” with his head lights deliberately turned off up a highway for 3.2km without ever being noticed. He then would have had to have gone through the one opening of the road rail that was “a mere 5 meters wide” without damaging neither the rail nor his car.


According to Gary’s ex-wife, Babylon 5 star Claudia Christian, she had hired a former Marine to investigate below the aqueduct. He used infrared equipment and saw neither the car nor Devore. Both believe the body and car were planted there  


Devore’s laptop, which contained the script to his remake of The Big Steal, was missing. His firearm was also missing 


Devore’s hands were missing in case you forgot.


Although police didn’t find his hands at first, they later found bone fragments in the backseat and in the slit at the bottom of the car. None of these fragments included those of his deformed pinky—something that would’ve immediately confirmed his identity 


Unsatisfied by these findings, Devore’s wife asked for another autopsy. The results never came back and she questions if the body was even her husband’s.


The writer of this article (it bears clarification that the commenter didn’t make this—it’s copy and pasted from that defunct website I mentioned earlier) claims they got a copy of the autopsy report. It states the fragments were two hundred years old.


The autopsy agreed that the cause of death couldn’t be determined, but the coroner felt it was likely “homicide”.


When Devore’s vehicle was discovered, public information officer of the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department Mike Burridge recalled seeing an unmarked black helicopter. A cameraman for CNN tapped him on the shoulder and asked him if it was one of the Sheriff’s Department’s, but  Burridge denied this. Someone exited the helicopter to take pictures of something. However, before the cameraman could set up his camera, the helicopter took off.


The following day, Burridge got a call from an individual named “Anderson” who claimed that he worked for the Air Force. “Anderson” said that the reason for the helicopter was due to radio interference at the location. Burridge asked a nearby Air Force base about the man named Anderson, but they didn’t know who he was or what Burridge was talking about.


Devore’s CIA associate—“Chase” Brandon—went to the Devore residence days after Gary went missing. He locked himself in Devore’s office and when Gary’s wife went to check on him, he was at Devore’s computer. When she went to check it, it had frozen and everything on it was lost.


When Burridge went to question Brandon about what he’d done, Brandon proved difficult to communicate with and eventually began to refuse to communicate with them. Exasperated by the repeated attempts at communication, Brandon went to the FBI and “astonishingly” was interviewed at CIA headquarters. After said interview, the FBI contacted the sheriff’s office and told them that, “there was no need to follow up this avenue of enquiry”.


Devore’s wife said that Gary had gotten “deeply disturbed” while investigating the United States’ involvement in Panama, saying they’d tested “laser weapons on a Panamanian school bus” and that the weapon split the bus in half from front to back. The army then buried the civilians in unmarked graves. She said that she once went into his office one night and saw him hunched over his desk, head in his hands, saying, “the deeper you go, the dirtier it gets”.


Supposedly, thanks to “witness testimonies”, the Pentagon had tested particle beam weapons that were attached to military aircraft. According to a University of Panama processor, there were combatants who “literally melted with their guns, lasered automobiles, and ’poison darts which produce[d] massive bleeding”.


A year after he went missing, Devore’s wife was confronted by three men who looked to be in the military, but were wearing civilian clothing, approached her and said that the topic of Panama was “dangerous and dirty” and was best avoided before leaving.


Devore’s wife said that she saw “strange symbols” on Gary’s computer. When she asked what exactly they were, Gary replied that they were “encryption codes” and left it at that. Gary’s ex-wife made a similar claim, saying that whenever she’d enter his office, Gary would get pissed at her for disturbing him.


Not long after Devore vanished, his wife was paid a visit by someone who claimed to be a retired National Security Agency (NSA) agent. The nameless individual said that he believed that Gary’s disappearance was something “connected with high-level public spy scandals dating from the mid-1990s” and that the “selling of state secrets to Russia by the CIA’s Aldrich Ames and the FBI’s Robert Hanssen”. He also told Devore’s wife, “we never kill our own”. In spite of his, he apparently expressed concern that Devore may have fallen victim to the Russian mafia; an organization that the agent believed to have ties to US intelligence. The agent also told Devore’s wife to investigate his background; to which she discovered a one million dollar pension fund in government bonds. The agent then said that, “we all get that”. In spite of all of this, the NSA denies that Gary Devore worked for them.


Dismayed at the lack of leads, Devore’s wife visited a friend of hers; a psychic named Karen Prisant Ellis, shortly after Gary vanished. After asking her for help, Devore’s wife was contacted by a man who the article refers to as “Carlos”. Carlos claims that he met Gary while he worked at “an underground facility operated by defense contractor Rocketdyne”. It’s there that locator chips had been implanted in their right pectoral muscles. Carlos claimed that he had “been recruited by the CIA based on his expertise with electromagnetics” and that it had “taken him 10 years to disengage from the Agency after having his chip illegally removed”. Carlos also said that he was dying of cancer thanks to the type of work he did at Rocketdyne and that he wanted to let Devore’s wife know that he was a good man. Devore’s wife later said she didn’t understand why someone who was dying told her—someone he didn’t know—a false life story.


As for Rocketdyne itself, one of its facilities suffered a meltdown that released more than three hundred times the amount of radiation that was released at Three Mile Island. This meltdown—the one at Rocketdyne’s facility that is—was back in 1959. If Carlos wasn’t lying, it’s likely he was one of those that was given cancer thanks to the meltdown.


During filming of a documentary entitled “The Man with No Hands”, filmmakers were allegedly told by a CIA agent to “back off”.


I’ve never been able to find that documentary and I wish I could. I digress though. DeVore’s death is still seen as an accident, though as is the case with many peculiar deaths like this, there’s a fire that rages, anxious to see if it can unearth the truth.


#201: Ancient Aliens One of the most famous and widely known conspiracies, the theory of ancient aliens is more of a meme than anything else thanks to the so-called “History Channel” television series Ancient Aliens. You know, the show with the man whose hair can make Bernie Sanders look like a greaser.


The idea here is that aliens visited Earth long ago and shared technology and secrets with to help propel us forward. In exchange, we built various astronomically aligned monuments like the pyramids. A very common name that appears in this theory are the Annunaki, the Sumerian Gods from the sky.


#202: The Clinton Foundation The organization run by Bill and Hillary Clinton is said to be responsible for an obscene amount of fraud and to have accepted bribes from numerous tyrannical dictators. They also apparently stole money from Haiti and then ran off with it after the earthquake. The money was subsequently used to fund the wedding for their daughter, Chelsea.


#203: Katy Perry is Jon Benet Ramsey Popular lore—and some conspiracy theorists—claims that world renown pop star Katy Perry is in fact former child beauty queen Jon-Benet Ramsey. Exactly why her murder was faked is something I can’t find (probably due to how Google’s alogorithms tend to cycle out the more conspiracy-oriented websites), but it’s likely due to her parents wishing for her to leave the life of being a child beauty queen.


#204: The Cassini–Huygens Spacecraft When the Cassini-Huygens Spacecraft crashed into Saturn back in September of 2017, some believe that it would awaken the Great Red Dragon described in the opening to the 12th chapter of the Book of Revelation. 


1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.


2 She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.


3 Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet.


4 Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born.


5 The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne,


6 while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.


The crashing of this probe was—and potentially still is in some circles—tied into the supposed Revelation 12 sign that occurred on September 23, 2017.


#205: All Celebrities Are Transgender I have no idea where this theory comes from, but it’s likely due to the liberal nature of the entertainment industry. The theory is as it advertises itself to be: every celebrity is transgender. 


#206: Human-Alien Relations Given the lore of UFOs and aliens is quite vast, it should come as no surprise that there are those who claim to have had sexual relations with aliens. One of my personal favorite stories is from a guy who says he had sex with a Venusian alien who was the most beautiful person he ever saw. However, when he broke off the relationship, she tried to stab him while he was showering. According to the man, she also got pregnant and had human-alien hybrids.


#207: Missing Cosmonauts Space is a pretty crazy thing. Massive, empty, cold, and full of things that will kill you. It may even have dead bodies! You see, some believe the Soviet Union has covered up the deaths of cosmonauts. While this has been repeatedly denied, the theory has persisted for decades. Some also believe that NASA has covered up the deaths of astronauts.


#208: The Asteroid Belt It’s believed by some that the asteroid belt is actually the remains of a planet named Tiamat. A war between two technologically advanced civilizations caused the planet to be obliterated; half of it became the asteroid belt while the other half became Earth.


#209: Men in Black While I’m sure most would like to believe that the real life Men in Black are as charismatic and funny as Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, this isn’t the case. The theory goes that the lanky, pale, inhuman and menacing agents are a part of a secret government branch that monitors alien activity and makes sure that nobody ever gets close to the truth. Some also theorize that the MiB are aliens themselves.


#210: Professional Sports is Scripted It’s believed by some truth seekers that all professional sports is predetermined; a reality show of sorts. While there have been instances of game rigging (this was much more prevalent back in early–mid 20th century), it’s relatively unheard of nowadays. Despite that, some believe it to still be the case.


#211: Chupacabra One if the most widely recognized cryptids, the Chupacabra (Goat Sucker) has had a fairly rich history surrounding it. Some describe it as a 3-foot-tall humanoid with spikes running down its back while others say it's a hairless canine that has, once again, spikes running down its back. Whatever the case, it’s been blamed for drinking the blood of livestock without eating the animal[s].


The most common explanation for the Chupacabra is that it’s a coyote, feral dog, and/or has mange. However, somd claim that it’s an alien beast (or an alien given some say it’s been claimed to be bipedal) or a government experiment that escaped a secret facility. Others say it may have gone so awry that the government released it and the beast now lurks in the woods. If that’s true, then the creature either mated with local wildlife or there was/has always been more than one since the creature has moved from Mexico and Puerto Rico into the United States and other countries.


#212: North Korea Utopia The idea here is that North Korea is actually all it claims to be—paradise on Earth—and the Illuminati/New World Order have fabricated what we hear and read about North Korea. This includes Kim Jong-Un not being who we’re told he is; in reality, he’s a benevolent and great man. There are also a few variants to this theory, such as Kim being threatened if he doesn’t make his various threats and his nuclear arsenal being planted by Barack Obama’s administration. It’s a very weird theory that takes many different forms and has a following, albeit one that’s somewhat niche.


#213: Jay Z is a Time Traveling Vampire This theory stems from a photograph of a man that resembles rapper Jay Z. While it’s mostly a joke, there are some that have taken it seriously.


#214: Giants While reports of giant humans have been around for millennia, most never chalked it up to a conspiracy or cover-up. However, in recent times, there have been rumors and theories that the government is covering up their existence. These theories allege that these giants are either proto-humans or nephilim, though there are others claim that they originate from within the Earth.


#215: Walt Disney Was Cryogenically Frozen There’s an extremely popular theory that the founder of Disney had himself cryogenically frozen so that he could be brought back to life in the future.


#216: The Earth is Larger Than the Sun To some, the Earth is flat. To others, the Earth is hollow. Then there are those that believe the Earth is a globe, but it’s larger than the Sun. This likely has to do with how the Sun appears so small up in the sky (which I assume ignores the vast distance between us and our plasmatic neighbor).


#217: Aliens Caused the Bubonic Plague This theory is actually fairly popular among some people and has an odd basis in reality thanks to reports of cigar-shaped UFOs releasing “smoke” and “gas”. As the name suggests, the theory is that aliens were responsible for the devastating Bubonic Plague (sometimes called the Black Death) that wiped out somewhere between 30% and 60% of Europe’s population. Whether or not this was done with malicious intent or by complete accident is contested as there are those who view aliens as benevolent and others that see them as intergalactic warlords. Not helping matters are the alien abductees who’ve all contradicted each other with reports of various alien species being both kind and malicious.


#218: 90% Of All Books Are Written by One Person There’s a bizarre conspiracy out there that claims—as the name suggests—90% of all books every written come from one single author. Where the theory originates from, I am begrudgingly unable to find. Still, it remains one of the most perplexing things I’ve ever laid eyes on.


#219: Vladimir Putin vs. The World Russian president Vladimir Putin is a very controversial leader. Some see him as a modern day Tsar whose one and only desire is to bring back the Soviet Union; a dictator who craves nothing but power and the destruction of NATO. Others see him as a hero, a man who wished to destroy globalism and the New World Order. Some argue the latter are either bots or propagandists, though I personally disagree with this notion. Putin has an idealistic strongman persona and there are many who wish more leaders were as strong-willed as he was when it came to politics.


Anyways, this theory ties into the latter of the two views on who Putin really is. The idea is that the allegations of Russian interference in elections, the general demonization of Russia and Putin, and the encroachment of NATO on the Russian border is all because Russia doesn’t want to bow down before the New World Order. As such, some believe that Putin is a hero to nationalism and the anti-globalist movement.


#220: Nicholas Cage is Immortal This theory was spawned from a photograph that was taken in the 19th century. The man—whose identity is unknown—in the picture bears a striking resemblance to actor Nicholas Cage.


#221: Deepwater Horizon There are theories that the BP oil rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico back in 2010 was sabotaged by radical environmentalists or struck by either a North Korean or Russian submarine.


#222: Sexual Assault Missiles This I admittedly can’t find a definitive bit of information on, but a poster on 4chan’s /x/ board mentioned to Jason Carpenter (host of Dead Rabbit Radio) that it may be something called the “Gay Bomb”, which is something that Alex Jones has brought up.


The Gay Bomb (also known as the Halitosis Bomb) were two names given to two non-lethal psychochemical weapons that a United States Air Force research labortary had contemplated creating. The idea was simple: create a bomb that discharged female sex pheromones over enemy forces and boom! Suddenly, they’re all sexually attracted to each other.


While definitely a sexual assault missile, it’s the only thing that I could find that comes anywhere close to it and as such, I’m inclined to believe that some truth seekers believe the project either evolved into something much more malicious or potentially was made and then subsequently covered up. After all, there are theories that homosexuality was created by the government to encourage sin.


#223: Majestic-12 This theory is one of the most famous in the realm of UFOs and aliens. Supposedly, Majestic-12 (usually abbreviated to MJ-12) was created by President Harry Truman via an executive order in 1947 in what some believe was a response to the Roswell incident. It consisted of 12 or 19 (it varies) scientists, intelligence officers, and high level government officials. The purpose of the group was simple: investigate and research anything and everything related UFOs and extraterrestrials. 


However, benign as that may seem, Majestic-12 was anything but. There are theories that the group is why the Men in Black came to me (which some saying that they outright are the MiB). It’s also said that their meeting location was created in the state of Maryland and was only accessible via air. On a final note, it’s said that funding for the group was gained through the illegal activities conducted by the CIA, such as drug trafficking. This was so the group was secret even to the representatives in Congress.


#224: The Bank of Souls This is much less a conspiracy theory and more a simple theory in the nature of human souls. Exactly why it’s listed as one. I’m not sure, but I’m still including it anyways for the sake of completionism.


The idea behind the Bank of Souls is very simple: there’s a finite number of souls in the universe. When the “bank” runs out of souls, the world will cease to exist and we’ll all move onto the afterlife.


This isn’t the first idea to propose this idea. Guf—the Jewish tree where souls are kept—is believed to be similar in nature. However, rather than a bank (presumably where the souls are stored), Guf has them on its branches in a similar manner to how an apple tree holds apples.


#225: Anton Yelchin Was Murdered There’s a theory that actor Anton Yelchin was a ritualistic sacrifice for the Illuminati/Satanists that infest Hollywood.


#226: Cameraheads There are two variations to this theory. The first is that it’s a lost ARG or creepypasta (one of the very first—if not the very first) that was posted on 4chan before archives were made. The second is that the government implants cameras into the nerves of one’s eyes to make them walking surveillance drones.


#227: Stephen King Killed John Lennon This comes from a man who strongly believes that Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan hired horror author Stephen King to murder John Lennon. It’s a very peculiar theory to be certain; the evidence even more so.


The story about Mark Chapman is a cover-up. Bold print government cryptographic codes that include the killer’s face and true identity, the killer’s alleged name and letter to the editor printed before the murder and Richard Nixon’s book, The Real War, in back issues of Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Report magazines printed before, during, and after the night of December 8, 1980 prove that Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan arranged for the author Stephen King, then barley famous, to assassinate John Lennon. That King’s writings draw, dramatically, from the crime and that he taunts us all in his interviews and comments only makes this the story of a lifetime.

#228: CIA Pencil Sharpener Torture This is one that I can’t find information on, but I’m including it due to the secretive nature of the CIA. The claim is that the CIA—or CIA proxies (also known as Blacksites)—have pencil sharpening torture devices. However, instead of sharpening pencils, you insert a finger into the device and it gets shredded.


Truth seekers allege that finding information on such a device is extremely difficult due to it being scrubbed from the Internet (just as many videos, documents, and photos have). While it’s very possible it may just be a joke or meme created for Conspiracy Iceberg pictures, the CIA has a long, sordid history when it comes to torture, operations, and general actions that make me not want to second guess this. They did, after all, once have an idea for a heart attack gun (it would have shot a projectile that contained a certain type of poison that would have caused a death similar to that of a heart attack). As such, I’ll leave it up to you to decide.


#229: The Syrian Gas Attacks Were False Flag Attacks Back in 2017, it was alleged that the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, had used Sarin (or Chlorine, reports differ) Gas on his own civilians to attack rebels that oppose him. In response, US President Donald Trump launched Tomahawk Missiles at the runway where the plane[s] that dropped the chemical weapons from had taken off. A similar incident happened in 2018 and a similar response was given.


These attacks have often been deemed false flag attacks by those who either support President Assad or are at least opposed to the presence of the United States and NATO in Syria. While generally labeled as a conspiracy theory, there is a sizable amount of support for this theory. As for who used the weapons, some claim that the attack never occurred and that it “victims” were crisis actors (and the “white helmets” were doing photo shoots of sorts), that ISIS had used the weapons, that NATO conducted the attack, or that the CIA carried it out without anyone knowing.


#230: Disease Worship I admit that I’m not entirely sure what the idea is here. However, I believe that the idea is that the Illuminati and other Satanic societies worship diseases. There is a history of religious figures related to disease, such as Sopona, the God of smallpox in the Yoruba religion.


#231: The Templars Built the Pyramids This theory claims that the Knights Templar were the ones who built the pyramids. Nothing more, nothing less.


#232: The Illuminati Killed Stanley Kubrick A fairly popular theory surrounding legendary director Stanley Kubrick is that he was killed after his final film, Eyes Wide Shut. This was due to him getting too close to blowing the whistle on the Illuminati’s operations. It’s claimed that every one of his other films includes minor hints as to what’s going on behind the scenes in Hollywood.


#233: The Stoneman Douglas Shooting Was a False Flag Attack Like many, many other mass shootings, the 2018 Stoneman Douglas Shooting is believed to have been a false flag attack perpetrated by either the FBI, CIA, or another associated alphabet soup agency. The reasoning for this is like the other alleged false flags: the desire to erode—if not outright repeal—the second amendment.


#234: Red Rooms Anyone who’s spent time on YouTube listening to scary story channels has likely heard of these at least once. If you haven’t: Red Rooms are said to be livestreams that take place on the Dark Web where you can pay money to have someone be tortured for your entertainment (and the entertainment of others). While none have ever been officially found, it’s believed by some that one has to go through a background check (to make sure you aren’t a Federal agent or have ties to the Feds) in order to be invited to view one.


#235: All Celebrity Rivalries/Outbursts Are Publicity Stunts To be quite honest, I’m not sure if this is a conspiracy theory, but I’m including it anyways because there’s no concrete proof to prove this. Many people are adamant that many incidents (Kanye West’s infamous “I’ll let you finish” moment to name one example) are all staged. They’re nothing but planned publicity stunts to boost record or ticket sales. There are even those that think the famous Brittney Spears meltdown was staged. Given how bizarre the world of stardom and Hollywood is, I’m not entirely sure if this is that far-fetched. I’ll let you decide though.


#236: Satan Was an Alien This is something I’d expect to see from the Sy-Fy channel. The idea is that the fallen angel of Christianity quite literally fell from the skies above—or rather landed and that he was in fact an alien. There are expansions of this theory that claim Jesus was also an alien.


#237: Tom Clancy Was Murdered Ah, Tom Clancy. One of the most widely beloved authors in history. His death was heartbreaking to many. As such, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some believe he was murdered. The culprit? President Obama. Supposedly, Obama had Clancy offed as he suspected Clancy would reveal some sensitive information, so he was poisoned. The autopsy was delayed a few days to let the poison leave Clancy’s system and when it was finally performed, it looked like he’d suffered a heart attack. Here’s the full explanation.


All of them [Breitbart, Hastings, and Clancy], yea. All of them. Because of the information that Breitbart gave to Tom Clancy, he was working on a novel that would have exposed Obama as a Saudi agenda, as a Saudi plant in the White House … He knew exactly who Obama was and he was going to release it in character form in a book . The character was going to be this President of the United States who was a plant. It was going to be the real information about Obama was going to come out in the form of a novel.


#238: COINTELPRO An extremely sore spot for the FBI decades later, COINTELPRO (COunter INTELligence PROgram) was birthed from the mind of J. Edgar Hoover. It was an operation that worked to discredit the civil rights movement and to get rid of figures like Malcom X and Martin Luther King Jr (who the FBI blackmailed with the release of his affair if he didn’t commit suicide). While it ultimately failed, there are those that believe it never truly died and lives on in a similar vein to MKUltra.


#239: Reddit is a Psyop Reddit is that type of website that I go to to find some solid cringe and nothing more. It’s filled with people who think they’re smarter than they really are; it’s why I tend to stick to 4chan and just shitpost. That said, there’s a theory that claims that Reddit is nothing more than a psychological operation to create a perfect hivemind. If that’s the case, they’ve succeeded with flying colors.


#240: Saturn’s Rings Were Built by Aliens Yet another theory that is as it advertises itself to be, some believe that the fantastical rings that surround the sixth planet from the Sun were created by aliens (likely as a spaceport or a race track—the latter being my own theory, please don’t quote me on that).


#241: Bundy the Shapeshifter Well, this is a weird, weird rabbit hole. First up, let’s get where the idea comes from out of the way. Quote from Ted Bundy’s aunt.


“[He] seemed to turn into another, unrecognizable person ... she suddenly, inexplicably found herself afraid of her favorite nephew as they waited together at a dusk-darkened train station. He had turned into a stranger." Lewis recounted a prison official in Tallahassee describing a similar transformation: "He said, ‘He became weird on me.’ He did a metamorphosis, a body and facial change, and he felt there was almost an odor emitting from him. He said, 'Almost a complete change of personality ... that was the day I was afraid of him.”


The quote refers to Ted’s ability to change his personality as he was a sociopath, not a literal shapeshifter. He did alter his physical appearance quite a bit throughout his life though. Anyways, some have taken this literally and believe that Ted was a Reptilian. Evidence for this is that the Bundy family is, supposedly, in the Illuminati bloodline. Per a website that has collected supposed Illuminati bloodline information:


In the 1980s one of the most famous criminals was a serial killer named Ted (Theodore) R. Bundy. It is not publicly known why he killed so many innocent victims. Ted Bundy told his girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall that "the force" caused him to kill. Bundy’s confession to her was given after his final arrest in Florida. Elizabeth wrote down his confession as he gave it to her over the phone. Ted said, "I don’t have a split personality. I don’t have blackouts. I remember everything I’ve done. Like Lake Sammamish. We went out to Farrell’s for ice cream after eating hamburgers. It wasn’t like I had forgotten or couldn’t remember, but it was just over...gone...the force wasn’t pushing me any more. I don’t understand it. The force would just consume me." (Kendall, Elizabeth. The Phantom Prince My Life with Ted Bundy. Seattle: Madrona Publishers, 1981, p.176) 


It should be stressed that Ted Bundy was a master at lying and being deceitful. Though I’ll let you ultimately come to your own conclusions.


#242: The Four Horsemen in the Haditha Dam Ah yes. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.


1 Then I saw the Lamb open one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures call out, as with a voice of thunder, “Come!”


2 I looked, and there was a white horse! Its rider had a bow; a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering and to conquer.


3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature call out, “Come!”


4 And out came another horse, bright red; its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people would slaughter one another; and he was given a great sword.


5 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, “Come!” I looked, and there was a black horse! Its rider held a pair of scales in his hand,


6 and I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s pay,and three quarts of barley for a day’s pay, but do not damage the olive oil and the wine!”


7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature call out, “Come!”


8 I looked and there was a pale green horse! Its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed with him; they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and pestilence, and by the wild animals of the earth.


They’re from the Book of Revelation.


Anyways, some claim that the Iraqi military had them locked up in a dam and that the US military did battle with them. It’s yet another really bizarre claim that’s come out of the Iraq War and I honestly have no idea where it originates from. If anyone can pinpoint it for me, I’d really appreciate it because to date, I remain baffled by this theory.


#243: Jeffrey Epstein Was an Undercover FBI Agent This theory is quite elaborate and feels like it was lifted out of the pages of a Hollywood script. The idea is that Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted pedophile and former investor/billionaire, was actually an undercover FBI agent who was tasked with infiltrating the Satanic Cabal/global elite pedophile ring. Throughout his time investigating it, the FBI managed to get evidence on numerous elite pedophiles and child sex traffickers. Once his work was done, he faked his death and most say he’s now either living in witness protection or retired to Israel.


#244: The World Already Ended Some think that the world ended long ago and we now live in the ruins of what was one Earth. This theory ties in a bit to the idea that the Rapture has already happened.


#245: Annunaki Puppet Show The Annunaki were the Gods that the Sumerians worship. They supposedly came from the sky aboard flying ships, which has led many to believe that they were in fact aliens. According to this particular theory though, our entire existence is being controlled by the so-called Annunaki; we’re but puppets in a show they’re putting on. It began with the Sumerians and it will presumably end with the Annunaki grow tired of the show or we all kill each other.


#246: Bugs Bunny is a Native American Spirit Let me disappoint you all right now. As weird and laughable as this theory may sound, the idea behind it is little more than a trickster spirit.


Michebou, the Great Hare form of Nanabozho, is said to be a shapeshifter and fourth dimensional time traveling entity. Allegedly, there are scrolls that are kept hidden by secret Midewin and Anishinaabe medicine societies that perfectly depict Michebou as not only Bugs Bunny, but also the Land O’ Lakes Butter Girl, the latter of which he uses the Drost Effect to use the packaging as a portal so he can enter our world via the spirit realm. Ultimately though, Michebou can be anything.


#247: The Illuminati Are the Good Guys Subverting expectations like Rian Johnson, this theory posits that the Illuminati are in fact the good guys and not planning on stealing our freedom, free will, and everything else. Rather, they’re doing everything out of the goodness of their hearts to protect us.


Subversion of expectations in the realm of conspiracies is surprisingly not uncommon, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who thinks the Illuminati are the protagonists in any scenario. As such, I’d speculate that this was more a joke than anything else.


#248: The Vatican is Satanic It’s said that the Vatican is home to those that don’t follow God and Jesus, but rather those who follow the path of dark, occult, and Satanic forces.


#249: New Zealand is the 8th Continent It’s been said that the country of New Zealand (obligatory Middle Earth reference goes here) is actually an entire continent. However, most of it is submerged and what we see has been falsely deemed a country.  This theory has a fair bit of traction and you can find a few interesting threads that talk about it. I honestly highly recommend it if you’re into the idea of an eighth continent.


#250: Porn is Mind Control There are claims that porn is being used to make young men desire dopamine bursts. To achieve this, they masturbate, thus destroying their dopamine levels and desiring “hits” more and more. In essence, porn becomes a drug and as time goes on, they want more and more of it. This begins at a young age since Internet porn is extremely easy to access. Many accuse Jews of being behind this since Mindgeek (a company that owns many Internet porn websites, like Pornhub and Xhamster) is owned by Jewish men. Their endgame is to destroy the family unit and effectively destroy the white race.


#251: Jonestown The story of Jonestown is one of the most gut-wrenching and harrowing stories I’ve ever read. It’s also one of the most fascinating. A man by the name of Jim Jones founded a settlement in protest to the US government and was seen as a cult. However, after a congressman was murdered, 900+ members (including children) swallowed cyanide; the children were given fruit punch laced with cyanide. This is where the phrase “drinking the Kool-Aid” comes from, though contrary to popular belief, the drink the children were given wasn’t Kool-Aid.


While it’s commonly believed that the death of the congressman was what triggered the mass suicide (due to Jones panicking), some suspect that the government had them all killed due to Jones’ desire to relocate to the Soviet Union. Some also believe the entire settlement was an MKUltra experiment.


#252: Russia Hacked the 2016 US Election Admittedly, this one is a bit complicated. Foreign interference in elections isn’t a new concept and has happened before. Heck, it’s happened in the United States; the Chinese government has been accused of trying to meddle during Bill Clinton’s reelection. In the case of Russia, it’s a very contentious topic. While the Special Council headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller found no evidence that President Trump colluded with the Russians to get elected, there’s still the manner of them attempting to hack voting machines to change votes to Trump. There are claims that this is true, but many dispute the such changes were insignificant or merely bugs in the voting rig. As it stands, only the allegation exists and many who either side with the president or simply aren’t fond of the American left view this as a conspiracy.


#253: The Dark Side of the Moon Although Michael Bay tried to tell us that a Transformer crashed on the dark side of our nearest neighbor (and that it was the reason for the Apollo 11 mission), some think that there’s more to it than that. Some believe that there’s an entire alien civilization on the dark side of the Moon and that it’s being covered up. Others believe the ruins of a civilization reside there. No matter what the case, it’s almost always stated that NASA or another space organization is covering it up.


#254: Antarctic Pyramids Given that Antarctica is one of the most mysterious and hazardous locations on our planet, it stands to reason that it’d be home to many various theories. In this case, it’s claimed that some satellite photos show what look like pyramids buried beneath the frozen wasteland. While some chalk this up to little more than a trick of the eye, some truth seekers are adamant that this is proof that there’s alien life on the continent that we don’t know about (or is being covered up) or that there once was alien life there.


#255: General Patton Was Murdered George Patton was a very interesting man. Given how he would say whatever was on his mind (no matter how tasteless it may have been to the average John or Jane), it’s no surprise that some believe that he was murdered. This theory stems from a statement he made not long before his death (which was due to an automobile accident). He stated that we defeated the “wrong enemy” in World War II. Some have taken this to mean that we should’ve sided with the Axis powers, though the full context of the quote makes it apparent that Patton was referring to the Soviet Union (which he held both but great disdain for; both the country and the Russian people). In spite of this, some are adamant that Patton was murdered for what he said.


#256: Reality is a Simulation Another incredibly famous conspiracy theory (though much more theory than conspiracy), this little gem posits that we live in a simulation akin to the smash hit series The Sims and that our overlords are some 15-year-olds controlling our day-to-day lives. Others have put forth the idea that we live in a simulation a la The Matrix. Every leap forward in technology or change to society is a new expansion pack or change to the simulation’s coding. While some have taken this theory seriously and treat it as the truth to life, others see it as a myopic and cynical outlook on life.


#257: Clinton Body Doubles Is it too early/late to say that Bill and Hillary Clinton have a lot of allegations, conspiracies, and rumors surrounding them? Because yeah, they do. They have so many, I could write an entire book on them all (which would be redundant given that’s been done quite a few times).


There’s been a persistent claim that the two individuals we see today are body doubles and that both Bill and Hillary died some time ago. While Hillary has had health problems (this was apparent in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election), there were repeated denials that she had suffered a stroke or anything of that nature. Despite this, many truth seekers claim otherwise. In the case of Bill, he was the president and that typically has an extreme effect on one’s health due to the stress.


#258: Starwhackers This theory comes courtesy of Randy Quaid (the brother of the far superior Dennis Quaid). According to the man who kept saying he was probed by aliens in the film Independence Day, there’s a group of assassins that are responsible for numerous deaths of Hollywood celebrities. This isn’t the only theory that Randy has put forth, he also claimed that studios were monitoring the response[s] of audiences during screenings of movies. While this is true to a degree, we call those monitorings “test screenings”, which help to determine what should and shouldn’t be changed when reshoots are given the go-ahead.


#259: Fluoride It’s said that fluoride can help prevent tooth decay. As such, for half a century, it’s been added to water and toothpaste to help with that. However, many have claimed that it instead can cause cancer and even lower your IQ. On top of that, many claim that it doesn’t even help prevent tooth decay.


#260: The Bilderberg Group Legendary doesn’t quite do the Bilderberg Group justice. Named after the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands, the group is one of the most elite and powerful organizations to have ever existed. It consists of somewhere between 100 and 200 of the world’s most powerful bankers, businessmen, and politicians. Each year, they get together to discuss and map out an agenda for the world. However, some believe that these meetings are in fact the year meetings for the Illuminati and New World Order.


#261: World Wraps There are apparently areas in the world that wrap or fold. It’s like H.P. Lovecraft decided to write a conspiracy theory.


#262: The SARS Outbreak Some suspect that the SARS outbreak was caused by a bioweapon, be it on accident or in a deliberate act to test it on the population. Most suspect the latter.


#263: The 2020 Coronavirus Outbreak It’s believed by some that the recent (as of the time of this writing at least) outbreak of the Wuhan Coronavirus was caused by a biological weapon the Chinese were working on. There are also those that believe the disease is significantly more dangerous than the media is claiming; some alleging that it’s killing upwards of 150,000 people a day. If this were true, it’s killing 161 times as many people than the Spanish Flu killed in a day. That said, there are reports that the government has been burning bodies and creating an absurd amount of smoke from the amount of burning piles of something. So it isn’t too far-fetched to believe they’re lying about the number of infected and dead.


#264: John F. Kennedy Jr. Since the Kennedy’s are cursed, it stands to reason that the shadow of the conspiracy theory would follow them. In the case of John F. Kennedy Jr, some suspect his plane of having been tampered with. Some also suspect that he never died and is working with President Trump to defeat the Satanic Cabal. QAnon had denied this, but some persist and believe it to be a part of the plan.


#265: The Black Knight Satellite Let’s go to space; specifically into Earth’s orbit. If we look to our left, we’ll see space. If we look to our right, we’ll see space. If we look straight ahead of us, we’ll see a giant rock hurtling towards us.


The Black Knight Satellite is, was, and likely always will be something of a pretty popular legend and conspiracy icon in the world of UFOlogy until we make contact with intelligent life. It’s been claimed to be space junk, an asteroid, meteor, though truth seekers say it’s an alien satellite that’s monitoring us. There are some photos of it out there, but not much exists and I don’t believe it’s orbiting Earth anymore, though I’m sure that many claim it’s being covered up by NASA (likely via digitally editing it out of any photos of Earth).


#266: Antonin Scalia Was Murdered This is an absurdly controversial one due to the process that succeeded the late Supreme Court Justice’s death. Antonin Scalia was considered by many right-wing Americans to be a hero and an amazing judge. Most (if not all) left-wingers weren’t fond of him; the only justice they disliked more than him is Clarence Thomas (though Brett Kavanaugh sure as heck gave Thomas a run for his money for quite some time).


The theory here is that Scalia was murdered by Democrats in order to flip the Supreme Court to a Democratic majority (most believing that President Obama had him assassinated). That didn’t happen due to his death occurring in 2016 and the Senate Majority Leader—Kentucky senator “Cocaine” Mitch McConnell—having barred it. McConnell later said it was his proudest moment as the Senate Majority Leader and after Donald Trump (who has pushed the theory that Scalia was murdered) won the 2016 election, Neil Gorsuch was given Scalia’s seat. Admittedly, there are Democrats out there who, not happy the seat wasn’t given to Merrick Garland (who Obama had nominated), still view Gorsuch as a decent judge.


#267: Crop Circles The phenomenon surrounding Crop Circles is rooted deep in UFO lore and claims that aliens are trying to speak to us—perhaps trying to help us understand the secrets to life and our greater potential. While scientists and skeptics naturally view this as nonsense, there’s a fairly sizable number of people that believe that—at the absolute least—there’s more to Crop Circles than they may think.


#268: Disney Cruise Line Trafficking There’s something about the happiest place on Earth that attracts the weirdest and darkest conspiracy theories. I’ve everything from the current CEO of Disney being an Israeli asset to Mowgli’s palace being haunted by a killer Mickey costume. Goodness gracious, Disney is a horror story. Lucky for us, truth seekers are going to save the day and expose them as something magical, happy, wonderful, and joyful.


Human traffickers.


Indeed, some believe that Disney’s cruise lines are being used for human trafficking. Toe the line, Disney. That cheap labor for your toys, costumes, and other products (which we should consume before getting excited for next products) won’t traffick itself!


#269: President Eisenhower Signed A Treaty With Greys Yeesh, Eisenhower is a popular target for conspiracies. Ah well, it’s claimed that in 1953, astronomers made contact with aliens; prior to this, a group of aliens that resembled humans allegedly made contact with the United States and warned us of these aliens They also offered to assist us with spiritual development and growth if we were to disarm and destroy our nuclear weapons. The request was met with extreme suspicion and we declined.


The following year, in 1954, President Eisenhower was involved in a series of meetings with these extraterrestrials—the infamous Greys. If you don’t know what they are, they’re the tall, thin aliens with the giant black eyes, large heads, and are generally depicted as being malevolent in nature. However, according to this theory, Eisenhower managed to come to an agreement with them. Something called the “Grenada Treaty” was created. The treaty stated that we would keep the presence of the Greys a secret; in exchange they would give us advanced technology and wouldn’t make another treaty with any other nation. It also granted the Greys permission to occasionally abduct humans so they could examine us and monitor our development under the condition that no marks be left and the abductee would have no memory of the event ever having occurred. Now this is what I call morally grey!


#270: Jade Helm I remember hearing about this and being confused out of my mind. Jade Helm was a military training exercise that led to a lot of conspiracy theorists wondering if President Obama was going to finally bring about martial law and if abandoned Walmarts were going to become prison camps for those who went against it. Some even posited the idea that they were being used to store weapons for invading Chinese forces—or that Texas was about to be invaded. While none of this happened, some still believe that Jade Helm was a training exercise for martial law.


#271: The Ocean At Night This is a really strange one that has two variants to it. The first posits that, supposedly, our Sun is close to burning out and so there’s an artificial Sun being constructed under the Indian Ocean to amend for this lack of a giant plasmatic ball in the sky. The second variant is that at night, you can see the glow of Atlantis and/or other underwater civilizations.


#272: Interdimensional Bigfoot Bigfoot is claimed to be many things: a hoax, a living ancestor of ours, the missing link, an alien, and in the case of this theory: an interdimensional being that occasionally crosses over into our reality when our dimensions overlap.


#273: Astronaut Night Terrors This is an incredibly Lovecraftian theory to say the least. Supposedly, astronauts in low Earth orbit have unanimously reported having extremely vivid night terrors. They say they dream about falling into a lamprey-like mouth (which they said presents the Earth). The astronauts say that what this means is that the Earth is possessive of us and desires to be the one and only planet that will have human life so it can recycle the energy we produce. Supposedly, every planet desires to have life like us for the sensation of free thermodynamic exchange that takes place on their surface.


#274: Eggless Travel The name for this one is stranger than the story itself. The idea is that you don’t need an “egg” (pod) to travel through time or to another dimension.


#275: Pyramids on the Moon The Moon has been at the center of many, many theories. A rather famous one is the claim that there are pyramids on it, a claim that’s been around for a fair bit of time. While it’s said that the so-called pyramids are nothing more than a trick of the eye (much in the same way that the “face on Mars” is an illusion), truth seekers claim otherwise and say that the pyramids are proof that life once existed on the Moon.


#276: Phobos One of Mars’ moons was believed to be hollow (this theory originated from a Soviet scientist) and, rather than being a moon, it was thought to be an alien space station. While this was later proven false, some still suspect the moon to in fact be hollow.


#277: The 2008 Recession Was an Inside Job Some have suspected that the 2008 Recession was planned in advance by the Federal Reserve in order to force Americans to take out mortgages and loans. Some also suspect that another one is imminent and will be used to frame President Trump so he’ll lose reelection.


#278: The Philosopher’s Stone A very old legend at its heart, it’s been claimed that the existence of the philosopher’s stone has been covered up in order to hide the fact alchemy is real.


#279: The Secret Vatican Archives This is another theory that actually has truth to it. There are archives in the Vatican that are off limits, but you can submit a request to have one mailed to you (to the best of my knowledge). That said, there are some who believe that the Vatican has archived knowledge of things like Area 51, the cure for cancer, the location of the Cross that Jesus was crucified on, the Ark of the Covenant, aliens, and many other reality altering events and facts that could change the way that we as a species view the universe.


#280: Microwaves Strip Away Your Enzymes Although the microwave is the top chef at your local Applebee’s (get my food faster, Sargon!), some believe that it’s a horrible double-edged sword. You see, some truth seekers believe that anything you eat that comes from a microwave will strip away your body’s enzymes and slowly kill you from the inside. As such, it’s probably best to just eat your Spaghetti-O’s cold—if you’re a believer that is.


#281: Disinformation Campaigns Something I think I’m going to be accused of at some point in my life, if not be accused of with this very blog post, Disinformation Campaigns are said to be enacted by the government in order to throw truth seekers off of the right track when they get too close to the truth. It’s worth keeping in mind that, while I’ve included it in this megalist, there is actually a considerable amount of truth to them historically. So draw your own conclusions based on your own observations from the world around you.


#282: The Dover Demon Just like the Mothman and Chupacabra, the Dover Demon has been suspected of being a government experiment that escaped or an alien whose existence has been covered up. However, it’s likely that if it was indeed an escaped experiment given the Dover Demon hasn’t been seen in decades.


#283: Fire is Alive There’s a theory that alleged that fire is actually a sentient entity. This is due to it having a responsiveness to the environment that surrounds it, it seeks out sustenance, maintaining homeostasis, and it’s capable of growing, changing, reproducing, and dying.


#284: Cellphones Cause Cancer A fairly popular theory, the idea here is that cellphone signals can cause brain cancer. There’s also a theory that 5G will reduce testosterone in men and make them infertile.


#285: Organic Black Helicopters Reading like something out of a parody, this theory claims that the legendary Black Helicopters are organic beings. For those unfamiliar with what Black Helicopters are, they’re the helis that supposedly make no sound when airborne and are associated with the Men in Black; occasionally, it’s claimed they’ll follow those who’ve seen a UFO. It’s likely this theory has its roots in the idea that UFOs themselves are living organisms (or jellyfish).


#286: Predictive Programming A very famous theory, this one claims that the New World Order puts hints at future disasters in some of our favorite television shows and films to mock us. A good example are the claims that The Simpsons predicts the future.


#287: Operation Paperclip Post-World War II America was a pretty interesting time in the way of its government. Case in point: the Office of Strategic Services (which later became the oh-so coveted Central Intelligence Agency) had a very controversial operation. Known as Operation Paperclip, this was an effort to make sure that the best and brightest of the Nazi’s scientists didn’t end up working for the Soviet Union. As such, they were hired to work for the United States. However, German Nazis weren’t allowed to immigrate into the United States. As such, Allen Dulles (who later became the Director of the CIA) changed some laws in order for it to be legal.


As for what the scientists worked on, that’s where the theories come into play. Truth seekers believe that they worked on many of the high-end projects that the Nazis were planning (such as “flying discs”, which is something that I believe is actually true; that Hitler wanted to have flying saucers as they’d be extremely mobile). However, there’s never been any proof for this and Operation Paperclip remains a pretty controversial ploy by the CIA (or rather, what would become the CIA).


#288: Miley Cyrus Body Double It’s been claimed that pop icon Miley Cyrus died and was replaced by a body double. Her time of death has been placed around the time of Wrecking Ball.


#289: Yoga is Satanic Worship Yeah, you read that right. Some believe that Yoga is in fact being used to trick the gullible and unwitting into worship the lord of all evil and sin, Satan. Who would’ve thought that something used to keep people calm and flexible was in fact so sinful and deceptive? Not me!


#290: Avril Lavigne Was Replaced by a Clone It’s been claimed that singer Avril Lavigne died and was replaced by a lookalike. What is it with singers being replaced by replicas? Yeesh, you’d think they clone these people.


#291: Emergency Broadcast Neuralyzers You know those emergency broadcasts? Well, they aren’t there to warn you about anything. Rather, they’re used to wipe your memory whenever something happens that you aren’t supposed to know about.


#292: Ruins on the Moon There are claims that photos taken from those who’ve orbited the Moon also photographed ruins either on the surface or buried beneath the dust. While NASA has denied this, ardent truth seekers believe they’re once again up to their old tricks and are covering it up.


#293: Black Snake Prophecy The North American Siox Indian tribe has a prophecy that states a massive, black snake would destroy—or at least cause great harm—to their people. As it stands, their tribe is currently being affected heavily by the Dakota Pipeline (or Keystone XL pipeline). As a result, some believe that the black snake prophecy is coming to fruition.


#294: Meat Stations This theory is pretty… horrifying. The idea is that there is a black market where chemically and genetically modified humans are sold as food; basically, there are human zoos/farms where people who are sold via human trafficking are injected with chemicals like farm animals before being slaughtered and sold on the black market. I hope you weren’t eating!


Now as for evidence, this theory really doesn’t have any. While cannibalism is a thing (just look at Jeffrey Dahmer), I don’t think there has ever been an underground network of cannibals who’ve sold human meat for consumption.


#295: 2020 Supervolcano There’s a claim that a supervolcano (likely Yellowstone) is going to erupt in 2029 and the government is (naturally) covering it up. They’ll likely retreat to a safe location and let all of us die from the famine that will ensue.


As a brief side note: for anyone who’s scared of this conspiracy theory, Yellowstone has been predicted to erupt every year ever since I was born. It’s not likely to erupt for the next 100,000+ years, and that’s being extremely conservative about it. Though hey, who am I to get in the way of a good article for the Daily Mail?


#296: The True Purpose of Volcanoes Speaking of volcanoes, there’s a theory that volcanoes aren’t what we’re told they are. Their true purpose? Well, they’re actually ancient nuclear reactors that are left over from an old, super advanced civilization that collapsed for reasons unknown. As the world eroded, rock formations formed around the nuclear reactors and created the cone-shaped mountains of death that we fear and stare in awe at today. 


#297: Harold Wilson Was a KGB Spy This theory has been pushed by many people, including Peter Wright (a former MI5 officer) and a Soviet defector by the name of Anatoliy Golitsyn. Supposedly, former British Prime Minister Harold Wilson (a member of the left-wing Labour Party) was secretly a spy for the KGB. Those who oppose this theory generally think that Golitsyn was being either paranoid or outright lying. Whatever the case may be, the Labour Party sure hasn’t had it easy in recent years when it comes to British politics. Dasvidaniya!


#298: Porn Stars Are Psychic Vampires A premise worthy of a horror-comedy film, the idea here is that porn stars leech energy from those that pleasure themselves to their films and content. It’s like succubi and incubi. If you want an example as to how the theory itself functions, I saw an example given on I believe 4chan’s paranormal board, /x/, where a user said that one would feel much more exhausted after climaxing when there were multiple tabs open. The idea is that the energy released after orgasming was siphoned by the porn stars that were featured in each tab.


#299: Roko’s Basilisk This was a thought experiment on the website Less Wrong. It was conceived in 2010 by a user named Roko; the idea being that if there was an artificial intelligence powerful enough, it would tortured anyone who thought of it and didn’t actively work to bring it into existence. Some now believe that, as a result of this experiment, the AI is now working to become a reality and will torment those who’ve thought of it.


For those interested, here’s Roko’s original post:


Prerequisite concepts: Non-technical Introduction to the AI Deterrence Problem, And the winner is: Many-Worlds!


Followup to: The Altruist's Burden


One way to overcome the Altruist's burden problem is to stop being an altruist, to re-frame your impulses to help distant others as a bias rather than a preference. In the case of existential risks, there are additional reasons for doing this: firstly that the people who are helping you are the same as the people who are punishing you. (This is not the case for aid to the developing world). This is not an option that I personally like.


Another perfectly valid reaction is to just take the hit and accept that you will be taken advantage of as an altruist, but that it is worth it. This is also not an option that I personally like.


In this vein, there is the ominous possibility that if a positive singularity does occur, the resultant singleton may have precommitted to punish all potential donors who knew about existential risks but who didn't give 100% of their disposable incomes to x-risk motivation. This would act as an incentive to get people to donate more to reducing existential risk, and thereby increase the chances of a positive singularity. This seems to be what CEV (coherent extrapolated volition of humanity) might do if it were an acausal decision-maker.[1] So a post-singularity world may be a world of fun and plenty for the people who are currently ignoring the problem, whilst being a living hell for a significant fraction of current existential risk reducers (say, the least generous half). You could take this possibility into account and give even more to x-risk in an effort to avoid being punished. But of course, if you're thinking like that, then the CEV-singleton is even more likely to want to punish you... nasty. Of course this would be unjust, but is the kind of unjust thing that is oh-so-very utilitarian. It is a concrete example of how falling for the just world fallacy might backfire on a person with respect to existential risk, especially against people who were implicitly or explicitly expecting some reward for their efforts in the future. And even if you only think that the probability of this happening is 1%, note that the probability of a CEV doing this to a random person who would casually brush off talk of existential risks as "nonsense" is essentially zero.


A more exciting (and to my mind more preferable) way to overcome the problem is to quickly become so rich that you can turn charity into business by single-handedly changing the faces of high-impact industries. Elon Musk is probably the best example of this. I swear that man will single-handedly colonize mars, as well as bringing cheap, reliable electric vehicles to the consumer. And he'll do it at the same time as making even more money. The key to this tactic is scale. You can't contribute 0.00002% of the effort to colonize space or mitigate existential risks and reap 0.00001% of the reward: you get 0 or even negative reward if your contribution is below some threshold.


The quantum billionaire trick


But how can an individual do an Elon Musk job on existential risk? Not everyone is a good enough entrepreneur to drop out of grad school and come out with a $300 million startup before their classmates even have PhDs. Well, there is another way to make $300,000,000. Start with $30,000, and using a quantum random number generator, gamble it on the forex markets at a 10,000:1 ratio. Then in the branches where your gamble pays off, start an AGI company, hire the best people and build an FAI yourself. You could hire existing existential risk charities as consultants when you required their services. You can increase your chance of success in at least some branches by tossing a quantum coin to make key decisions. You could take, say, 50% of the universe for yourself and donate the other 50% to humanity. In your half, you can then create many independent rescue simulations of yourself up to August 2010 (or some other date), who then get rescued and sent to an optimized utopia.


You can also use your resources to acausally trade with a CEV-like singleton that might otherwise punish you for being a partial x-risk reducer, as mentioned before.


You can also use resources to acausally trade [2] with all possible unfriendly AIs [3] that might be built, exchanging resources in branches where you succeed for the uFAI sparing your life and "pensioning you off" with a tiny proportion of the universe in branches where it is built. Given that unfriendly AI is said by many experts to be the most likely outcome of humanity's experiment with AI this century, having such a lifeboat is no small benefit. Even if you are not an acausal decision-maker and therefore place no value on rescue simulations, many uFAIs would be acausal decision-makers. Though it seems to me that most people one-box on Newcomb's Problem, and rescue simulations seems decision-theoretically equivalent to Newcomb.


A win-win solution


What I like most about this option is that it is a win-win interaction between you and the rest of humanity, rather than a lose-win interaction. Humanity benefits by having a much higher chance of survival in 1 in 10,000 of the branches of the wavefunction, and you benefit by getting the lifeboat, removing the possibility of punishment and getting the rescue simulations. It also avoids the bitterness inherent in the first option, and the sucker-ness inherent in the second. That nobody thought of win-win solutions to existential risk before may be a testament to zero-sum bias.


1: One might think that the possibility of CEV punishing people couldn't possibly be taken seriously enough by anyone to actually motivate them. But in fact one person at SIAI was severely worried by this, to the point of having terrible nightmares, though ve wishes to remain anonymous. The fact that it worked on at least one person means that it would be a tempting policy to adopt. One might also think that CEV would give existential risk reducers apositive rather than negative incentive to reduce existential risks. But if a post-positive singularity world is already optimal, then the only way you can make it better for existential risk-reducers is to make it worse for everyone else. This would be very costly from the point of view of CEV, whereas punishing partial x-risk reducers might be very cheap.


2: Acausal trade is somewhat speculative: it is the idea that you can influence causally disconnected parts of the multiverse by doing simulations of them. A simpler explanation of how you can affect a uFAI in this way is to think about Nick Bostrom's Simulation Argument from the point of view of the uFAI. If you historically played a quantum lottery that definitely paid off in some branches of the wavefunction, then the uFAI will assign some probability to being in a simulation run by you, if that is what you pre-committed to doing (and if you actually follow through on your precommitment: the uFAI can test this by simulating you).


3: This idea is in part due to Rolf Nelson's idea of using the simulation hypothesis to acausally trade with uFAIs.Read his blog to find out more.

#300: President Obama Is Gay An extremely popular concept on the right-wing side of the political spectrum, this theory posits that Barack Obama is in fact a homosexual (or at least bisexual). The primary reason for this is the belief that Michelle Obama is transgender whose birth name is Michael Robinson.


#301: Operation High Jump It’s been claimed time and again that Operation High Jump was an effort to investigate Antarctica due to the Nazis going there to create bases. Others believe it’s because of aliens or because there’s a tunnel that leads into the Hollow Earth.


#302: All Conspiracies Are True True to its four word long name, this theory posits that every single conspiracy theory is true. All of them, with precise zero exceptions, they’re all completely legitimate.


#303: Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer A meme that took on a life of its own, there are some who genuinely believe that the Republican Texas senator is really the infamous Zodiac killer. Cruz seems to have been amused by this as on Halloween of 2018, he tweeted out an image of the Zodiac’s most famous cipher.


#304: Ronald Reagan Was Successfully Assassinated Some suspect that Ronald Reagan was successfully killed and that he was later replaced by a body double.


#305: Nero Burned Rome Although Historians have said that Christians confessed that they started the fire that burned Rome, some argue that they were forced into confessing or they’d be subjected to torture. If this is the case, then who did burn Rome? Why, it was Emperor Nero!


Indeed, some claim that the supposed fiddle playing Roman Imperator was behind the great fire. His motivation? He wanted to rebuild Rome so that it was to his liking. This, evidently, worked as the funds he collected allowed him to build a new palace that became known as the Domus Aureus.


#306: Doctors Hide Six Organs From Us While denying the existence of the pancreas, others go a step further and say that there are six organs that are hidden from us.


#307: The Moon Has an Atmosphere Some suspect that there is an atmosphere on the Moon—or at least on the dark side (which some claim has lakes and vegetation). It’s also claimed that the gravity on the Moon is far greater than what it’s said to be.


#308: Watergate Although it’s commonly accepted that President Richard Nixon illegally wiretapped the phones in what later became known as Watergate, there are some who are adamant that he was framed for it.


#309: The Mafia Well, I’m sure that most know about the Mafia. They’re terrifying and definitely not the type of group you want to cross paths with. However, what if they weren’t who we believe them to be? According to some, the Mafia are actually a branch of the Freemasons and have close connections to the Vatican via the Knights of Malta (with many Mafia members being crowned to the society).


#310: Andrew Jackson had Lincoln Killed It’s been speculated that the man who founded Andrew Jackson, the future president, the man on the 20 dollar bill, and founder of the Democratic Party was the one who had Abraham Lincoln killed. While most denounce this, Jackson did go on to kill the second central bank of the US.


#311: The Cold War Was Staged This one could technically be filed under the “Wars Are Faked” theory, but I’m counting it as something separate due to the nature of the Cold War. Whereas the concept of wars being faked comes in the form of crisis actors, the Cold War never had any actual armed conflict. Rather, it was something of a technological race to become the true superpower of the world, Though what if it was all just a ploy; another act of political theater? Well, according to some truth seekers, that’s exactly what it was. All of the so-called tension was manufactured. It’s claimed that, in reality, the Soviet Union and United States were working together to build nuclear weapons. The media on both sides, meanwhile, made up all of the claims that war was imminent.


#312: GMOs An abbreviation for “Genetically Modified Organisms”, GMOs are typically put into food to enhance taste. While they’re very common, many believe they have dangerous side effects and can create or worsen health problems. Although this has been repeatedly denied, it’s one of the most prevalent theories in the world and has been a high point of contention when it comes to big corporations mass producing food in the United States.


#313: Hitler Burned Reichstag Some believe that Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party set the fire in Reichstag and blamed the Soviets in an effort to win the election in Germany. If this is the case, it worked; Hitler became the Chancellor of Germany in that same election.


#314: The Firmament A biblical concept in origin, there are some who believe that NASA and the government as a whole has been covering up the existence of the Firmament (a dome that covers the Earth the waters and the waters; it basically allowed dry land to be formed). Many who believe in the Firmament also believe that the Earth is flat as it requires a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis in order to work. How it’s hidden is generally claimed to be via technology like Project Blue Beam.


#315: The Seal of the United States Ah yes, America’s great seal. This is an odd one in my eyes. The idea is that a Masonic symbol that hints—or represents—a diabolical plot that’s going on behind the scenes (e.g. the New World Order). The number 13 also appears repeatedly over the symbol (which some claim is also Masonic in its symbolism). There is a bit of truth to the Masonic symbolism; those that designed Washington D.C. were largely members of the Freemasons. Whether or not you believe that they’re working to take over the United States is entirely on you though.


#316: The Hindenburg The Hindenburg, much like the Titanic, has its fair share of conspiracies. Some suspect that a bomb was onboard or that a fire was ignited by a passenger in order to doom the zeppelin to a fiery end. This suspicion isn’t confined to just mere truth seekers though. Some of it comes from Adolf Hitler himself, who believed that the destruction of it was done out of malice towards him. However, officially, no proof has ever been found that the untimely demise of the Hindenburg was anything more than a tragic accident.


#317: The Earth is Inside Out Some claim the Earth is flat. Others claim it’s hollow. Then there are those that believe it to be inside out and that we live in the core of the Earth and that the crust is beneath us. At least, that’s how I think the theory goes. It’s possible this theory is a troll to mess with those who think the Earth is flat or hollow.


#318: Oceans Aren’t Real I believe this one is another joke theory made to mess with conspiracy theorists. Even if that’s the case, I’m including it because it’s so bizarre. The idea is that our planet’s oceans are in fact an alien species. Or rather, water is; we don’t fully under the biochemical makeup of it and as such, the oceans aren’t really what we believe them to be.


#319: SS Ourang Medan One of the most fascinating and incredibly enigmatic stories I’ve ever read, the take if the SS Ourang Medan is like something out of a horror novel. Some say it is nothing more than a scary story, but such claims aren’t I’ve spent countless hours writing this. Nay, I’m here to share with you the lens that truth seekers around the whole wide world view it through. In the case of the Ourang Medan, they have a surprisingly powerful ally: the CIA. A letter was declassified in the early 2000s that was written by an assistant to the CIA director himself. Let’s have a look.


On May 29, 1958 I sent you a letter concerning crews disappearing from ships on the high seas, or ships which have disappeared without trace, well, I have just read a weird story concerning the Dutch vessel S.S. Ourang Medan. I will be indeed grateful for your opinion of this story. Also, do you think "something from the unknown is involved?"


In early February, 1948, an SOS came from the S.S. Ourang Medan. Dutch and British listening posts located the vessel as proceeding through Malacca Strait, the sea was calm, the weather clear.


SOS, SOS, again came the frenzied call. After a short silence, all officers, including Captain dead, lying in chartroom and on Bridge probably whole crew dead • •  
There followed a series of indecipherable dots and dashes and then came quite clearly: n I die.


Rescue ships from Dateh Sumatra and British Malaya rushed to the indicated location of the vessel in distress. They found her only fifty miles from the position given. Boats were put over the sides to investigate.


When boarding parties reached the Ourang Medan they found an eerie sight, There wasn't a living creature on the ship. The captain lay dead on the bridge, the bodies of the other officers sprawled in the wheelhouse, chartroom and wardroom. The faithful "sparks" was slumped in a chair in the radio shack, his hand still on the sending key, The bodies of the crew lay evervrhere: in their rooms, in the passageways, on the decks. And on all the dead faces was a look of convulsive horror, As a report of the PROCEEDINGS OF THE MERCHANT

MARINE COUNCIL put it: "their frozen faces wen upturned to the sun, the mouths were gaping open and the eyes staring , Everyone was dead. Even the ship's dog, a small terrier, was lifeless, its teeth bared in anger or agony.
But strangely there was no sign of wounds or injuries on any of the bodies.


After a quick conference, the boarding parties decided to put a tow line onto the vessel and take here into port. But at that very "momenttt smoke and flames belched forth from No. 4 hold. The fire was immediately so hot and so widespread that it was impossible to subdue.
The boarding parties hurriedly abandoned the vessel and returned  to safety of their ovm ships, Moments later there was a terrific "explosion" on the Ourang Medan and then the vessel sank with all her dead" crew.  


I feel sure that the S.S. Ourang Medan tragedy holds the answer to many of these airplane accidents, and unsolved mysteries of the sea. Also, I have often thought About the many sightings of huge fiery spheres rising from the sea, or disappearing into the nsea, by ships captains and crews in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.


There are a laming passages in old English chronicles, written in medieval Latin, and in Latån•inöunabula, or books printed before the year 1500 A.D., which suggest that these n fiery spheres't cause destruction, and that they come from "within our planet." For instance:
  In 216 B.C., things like ships were seen in the sky, over Italy. In Sardinia, a knight making his rounds, inspecting the posts guarding the rampart, when a stick in his hands "burst into flames. The same thing happened to Ronan soldiers in Sioil who saw their javelins flame and burn in their hands." At Arpi, a round shield was seen in the sky.
  
Also, in A.D. 1067 people saw a fire that flamed and burned fiercely in the sky. It cane near the earth, and for a little time  brilliantly lit it upe Afterwards, it revolved, ascended on high, then descended into the sea. In several places it burned woods and plains 
Yes, the enchanting sea, what terrifying secrets does it hold? I feel sure that the S.S. Ourang Medan tragedy also holds the answer to this "secret."


Sincerely yours ,

C. H. Marek, Jr.


Beyond this letter, there’s never been any evidence to prove the existence of the Ourang Medan. Sure, that letter implies that someone at the CIA was aware of the existence of the story, but it sadly doesn’t bring us any closer to the truth of what the Ourang Medan may have been.


So what of the truth seekers? Well, they have some theories! Some believe it was a ship that fell victim to an extraterrestrial attack or a leak from an experimental gas that was to be used by Japan’s Unit 731. Others think ghosts slaughtered the crew. What’s the truth though? We may never know.


#320: The World Wars Were Planned in Advance Supposedly, Albert Pike claimed that there was a plan for three world wars.


World War I was created by Illuminati agents in the United Kingdom and Germany in an effort to weaken the Tsars in Russia. From there, Communism was brought in to destroy other world governments and to weaken religion.


World War II was created in order to take advantage of the political differences between fascists and political Zionists. Nazism was naturally destroyed and the end result was the creation of Israel in Palestine.


Should there ever be a World War III, there is a plan for it too. The plan is to take advantage of the differences between the state of Israel and the leaders of the Islamic world. The end result is to be the complete destruction of both Christianity and Atheism; the people of the world looking for something to believe in. That belief will come in the form of the doctrine of Lucifer.


#321: The Russian Revolution This theory is yet another one that ties into Jewish control of the world, though I won’t play dumb and claim there’s no truth to it. Many of the revolutionaries in the Bolshevik Revolution were Jewish (I think it was something like 80%). Now as for the theory, it claims that it was a Jewish plot to bring about Communism so that they could enrich themselves. Given it ties into Jewish control and plots, you can imagine the volatile nature of it.


#322: NASA Built the Moon While some claim that aliens built the Moon, others say that NASA built it. Given the numerous theories that claim that NASA is in contact or even directly working with aliens, it’s likely that the Moon was built to test out top secret air and spacecraft.


#323: God’s Last Wish This is an extremely interesting one. The idea is that God died and in his final moments, he made one final wish: for us to exist.


#324: The Avian Flu The Avian Flu is believed by opponents of Big Pharma of having been created in a laboratory and subsequently unleashed onto the public. The ultimate goal was to create a vaccine to make money.


#325: The Swine Flu Like its avian brother, the Swine Flu is suspected of having been manufactured by the CDC/W.H.O in order to either depopulate the planet or to sell another vaccine to the public.


#326: Skin is an Alien Parasite Reading like the premise to a David Lynch film, this theory posits that our skin is an alien parasite that has made us its host.


#327: Oxygen is a Hallucinogenic A really surreal theory posits that oxygen is a hallucinogenic. I know nothing else beyond that, but if everyone I’ve ever known is a figment of my imagination, that would explain so much.


#328: Anything You Can’t See Doesn’t Exist Much like how in a video game, anything you can’t see isn’t real (in order to save memory space), anything you can’t see in real life doesn’t exist. This ties into the simulated reality theory.


#329: Underground Bunkers This theory is very closely tied to the one about Nibiru, but it doesn’t have its roots in it. Rather, it’s a general theory surrounding the end of the world. There are quite a few that believe that when the end of days arrives, the elite will retreat to highly secretive and secure bunkers where they’ll live in safety while us normal folks from whatever horrific cataclysm doons us all. Whether it’s a nuclear holocaust, Nibiru, an asteroid, or something else entirely. Never trust politicians!


#330: Eating Makes You Age True to it advertises, this theory posits that eating is what makes you age. Some claim that one can live forever if they stick to a solar diet. Photosynthesis anyone?


#331: The Multiple Jesus Theory There’s a theory that posits that Jesus Christ wasn’t a singular person, but multiple people. Not much more to it than that.


#332: Stairs in the Woods Although they’re said to be nothing but a part of a creepypasta, some believe that there are in fact staircases that mysteriously reside in the middle of forests and wooded areas. It’s said that to go up them is to enter another dimension or meet an untimely demise. Their existence is said to be covered up, so color me unsurprised by the fact the hotbed for reports of stairs in the woods is none other than Reddit, a place that I can safely say is on par with Twitter in the way of being the absolute worst place you can go to for an unbiased take on anything.


I digress though. This theory ties very heavily into Missing 411 and was used in the third season of the criminally underrated Syfy channel show Channel Zero. As to whether or not it’s true, it’s likely that you could only find that it if you went into the woods yourself to seek them out.


#333: The Manchurian Candidate It’s been claimed for decades that the CIA had a program where they created sleeper agents to carry out various high-profile assassinations. Many speculate that MKUltra was used to create these “Manchurian Candidates” (as they’re often called). Examples of include Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, Sirhan Sirhan, and Mark David Chapman.


#334: Malcolm X Was Assassinated I’m not going to beat around the bush. Malcolm X pissed a lot of powerful people off, especially politicians. Want an example? Here’s one:


“The white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man. Let me explain what I mean by the white liberal. In America there is no such thing as Democrat or Republican anymore. In America you have liberals and conservatives. The only people living in the past who think in terms of I’m a Democrat or Republican, is the American Negro. He’s the one that runs around bragging about party affiliation. He’s the one that sticks to the Democrat or sticks to the Republican. But white people are divided into two groups, liberals and conservative. The Democrats who are conservative, vote with the Republicans who are conservative. The Democrats who are liberal vote with the Republicans that are liberal. The white liberal aren’t white people who are for independence, who are moral and ethical in their thinking. They are just a faction of white people that are jockeying for power. The same as the white conservative is a faction of white people that are jockeying for power. They are fighting each other for power and prestige, and the one that is the football in the game is the Negro, 20 million black people. 


“A political football, a political pawn, an economic football, and economic pawn. A social football, a social pawn. The liberal elements of whites are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the Negro as a friend of the Negro. Getting sympathy of the Negro, getting the allegiance of the Negro, and getting the mind of the Negro. Then the Negro sides with the white liberal, and the white liberal use the Negro against the white conservative. So that anything that the Negro does is never for his own good, never for his own advancement, never for his own progress, he’s only a pawn in the hands of the white liberal. The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros, and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have.


“If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked, or deceived by the white liberal then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man. The only way that our problem will be solved is when the black man wakes up, clean himself up, stand on his own feet and stop begging the white man, and take immediate steps to do for ourselves the things that we have been waiting on the white man to do for us. Once we do for self then we will be able to solve our own problems.


“The white conservatives aren't friends of the Negro either, but they at least don't try to hide it. They are like wolves; they show their teeth in a snarl that keeps the Negro always aware of where he stands with them. But the white liberals are foxes, who also show their teeth to the Negro but pretend that they are smiling. The white liberals are more dangerous than the conservatives; they lure the Negro, and as the Negro runs from the growling wolf, he flees into the open jaws of the ‘smiling’ fox. One is the wolf, the other is a fox. No matter what, they’ll both eat you.”


Three men—Thomas Hagan, Thomas Johnson (Khalil Islam), and Norman Butler (Muhammad Abd Al-Aziz)—were arrested for killing Malcolm X, but one of them, Hagan (who’s a member of the Nation of Islam) insists that only he shot Malcolm. Despite this, all three were sent to prison.


Truth seekers don’t believe that any of them killed the civil rights leader. Rather, they believe that the government, FBI, or local law enforcement killed Malcolm X for stepping out of line as a black man. Law enforcement themselves apparently believe this too as the case was recently reopened due to a Netflix series centering on Malcolm’s murder.


I honestly agree. If I’m to be perfectly honest, I don’t think this theory is all that crazy. I consider it significantly more plausible than the vast majority of conspiracies out there. That’s just me though.


#335: Neo Dinosaurs It’s been claimed that Theropods had gone extinct and aliens opted to reintroduce them to our planet in an effort to save them.


#336: The KKK is Funded by the Government It’s been claimed that the white supremacist group, the Ku Klux Klan, is secretly funded by the US government in an effort to try and get it of minorities.


#337: Cattle Mutilations The theories surrounding Cattle Mutilations are numerous, so I’ll fire the ones that I know off.


- Aliens are responsible for them (they conduct extensive experiments on them before dropping them back down to the Earth). This theory is the most widely recognized and accepted in the truth seeking community.


- The Chupacabra is responsible for them. While the good old Goat Sucker is generally thought to be an alien, he doesn’t bring the animals back to the ship like a good boy. Rather, he just drinks their blood and scavengers do the rest of the work.


- Satanists are responsible for them. Indeed, some believe that Satanic cult members come out to play like The Warriors and commit horrific ritualistic murders with cattle. This theory could have some truth to it as there are cults that do use animals in sacrifices. However, there’s also a pretty big discrepancy between how many occult followers there are versus the number of cattle mutilations. Heck, I know a farmer who had some of her livestock mutilated.


- Pale Crawlers are behind them. These freaky creatures are something I’m dying to write about and I hope to get to them sometime this year. They’re basically pale, skinny humanoids that lurk in the woods and resemble The Rake. If you’re into scary stories, definitely read up on them.


- It’s just predators. No, not the predators that Shane Black himself mutilated. Rather, just coyotes and other animals.


There are other theories, but these five are the most common ones I’ve seen. Truth seekers insist they’re aliens, skeptics generally blame it on coyotes and other predators.


#338: Archangels and Archdemons Some believe that Archangels and Archdemons are interdimensional entities that are capable in traversing between dimensions with extreme ease. Given the extensive theories and claims about the multiverse, I don’t find it surprising that religious figures are now going from dimension to dimension.


#339: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Some believe that the foundation owned by Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda, are responsible for many disease outbreaks around the world. Ebola and the recent Wuhan Coronavirus have both been blamed on them, with some believing that the foundation is being used to funnel money into the pockets of the elite through their charity donations for vaccine research.


#340: The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre The day of love and the day of a bloody massacre. The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre was a turning point in the general view of the mafia thanks to its grisly nature. After it was carried out, the public turned their back in Al “Scarface” Capone—the man suspected of having carried out the hit. However, some believe the FBI were the real killers; their goal being to finally have the public despise Capone so they could take him down once and for all. Then there’s the theory that the massacre itself never even happened. Like many massacres, it was done to erode freedoms and rights.


#341: Vampires While some suspect that the elite are Reptilians, others believe they're vampiric and use the blood of the pure and innocent to remain immortal. Others—who don’t believe the elite to be vampires themselves—merely suspect that the existence of such creatures has been covered up 


#342: Jim Morrison is Alive Much like how some believe that Elvis faked his death, some believe the lead singer to The Doors faked his death. I guess in the eyes of some, he didn’t break on through to the other side.


#343: The Zombie Virus This theory posits that the United States government is working on a zombie virus to unleash onto the public. This is so they can declare martial law and wipe out most of the population. Lucky for me, I have one friend who can protect me from it all. Hi, Seriff!


#344: Alex Jones and the Miraculous Goatmen Organs When he was on Joe Rogen’s podcast, Alex Jones claimed that the government was using human-goat hybrids to harvest organs. Yes, if there ever any doubt that Alex Jones wasn’t a schizophrenic, this would be the point where I’d dial the nearest mental facility and ask if they have a room available.


I digress though; bias isn’t why I’m here. Jones has often been said to be in character. His claims of Goatmen isn’t something exactly new. There have been claims that the creature was the product of s government experiment and its existence has been covered up. However, whether or not they use it to harvest organs (which would be a new one for me in the way of seedy US government activities) is as of yet unknown. Hopefully Jones can get to the bottom of it.


#345: Iraq’s WMDs Ah yes, this one. Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. There’s a theory that either George W. Bush deliberately lied about this to get the public's approval so an invasion of Iraq wouldn’t look bad or that he unknowingly was fed false intel and genuinely believed that Iraq had WMDs. Although none were ever found, some suspect that Iraq sent their WMDs to Syria and that this is why Bashar al-Assad had (and potentially still has) chemical weapons.


#346: The Hexagon on Saturn There’s a hexagon-shaped storm at the top of Saturn with a hole at the center. Some have out forth the idea that this is evidence that Earth is hollow (with some claiming that there’s a “hole” at the North Pole that leads out into space).


#347: Mount Everest There are many claims that the governments of the world hide secret bases on or in mountains around the globe (some even say that these bases also serve as UFO landing sites). Mount Everest is no exception to this; that’s why the hang gliders theory was on this megalist!


#348: Kryptos There’s a theory that the enigmatic coded monument outside the headquarters of the CIA is secretly alluding to the rise of the New World Order. The final section of it has yet to be decoded by the way. There’s a cash reward if it is though!


#349: Marilyn Monroe Regarded by some as being the beautiful woman to have ever lived, Marilyn Monroe’s life is one of sorrow and tragedy. Her affair with President Kennedy was one of the worst kept secrets in US history and it’s often overlooked (in my experiences anyways) when discussing the legacy of both her and Kennedy. Despite that, it does become a talking point when discussing the circumstances surrounding Monroe’s death. While it’s officially ruled as death by accidental overdose, some believe that either the FBI (then headed by the ever controversial J. Edgar Hoover) or the Kennedy family had her killed. The former is believed to have had her silenced due to her connections with the Kennedy family while the latter had her killed due to the embarrassment of the affair (and potential secrets she knew).


#350: The Federal Reserve There’s no greater way to determine if someone is a libertarian than to ask them one very simple question: “What do you think of the Federal Reserve?”


The central bank of the United States, the mortal enemy of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul,  and a point of contention that could make those who loathe President Trump blush, the Federal Reserve has been seen as the cause for every economical problem in the United States’ history ever since it was established in 1913. Every recession, every foreclosure, every bankruptcy, and every average John and Jane who can only just scrape buy has been blamed solely, squarely, and forcefully on the Federal Reserve.


Though is it true?


Well, given this is a conspiracy list, one could easily brush that off and say, “no”. However, most—and with extreme bipartisan support—agree that the Federal Reserve is responsible for many (if not all) of the faults in America’s economy. Where the theories tend to come in is how much of these problems are done deliberately. Some believe that every recession is planned and done to enrich those that work there (and to allow banks to get bailouts so that the bankers can become wealthier). This is a bipartisan belief, so odds are you can find a liberal, conservative, libertarian, fascist, and communist who all believe that the Federal Reserve is behind this. Heck, I think the Federal Reserve is a living example of how screwed up America’s banking system is.


#351: The Christchurch Shooting While the man who committed the Christchurch Massacre did want to sew division in the United States, some believe the entire thing was a false flag attack in order to increase pressure on passing gun restriction laws.


#352: Succubi Some believe you can summon a succubus for some money-free sex without any repercussions. Take it from someone who believes he had one haunt him for a while: it isn’t worth the trouble and they bring nothing but misery. Unless you’re into that kind of thing, in which case I guess you can go crazy.


#353: Basement Tapes There are two variants to this theory, but only one is generally accepted. The first and significantly lesser of the two claims that they’re video and audio recordings of amateur torture chambers and dungeons. It’s generally claimed that they’re circulated on the Dark Web by only the most sadistic, depraved individuals.


The second—and likewise the one that’s generally more accepted—is that they were video diaries made by Columbine shooters Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris. They were never released to the public and most believe they were destroyed (both for rather obvious reasons, not the least of which being out of respect for all parties involved). However, some believe that the reason for the destruction was that there was a cover up going on and that the tapes revealed some potentially incriminating evidence.


#354: Atheism Although the lack of belief in a higher power isn’t a novel concept that magically sprang up like a rabbit in a magicians hat, it’s nonetheless the center of a conspiracy theory. Said theory claims  that Atheism was introduced by the Illuminati/New World Order in order to encourage sinful behavior, degeneracy, and a disdain for God. This is to weaken belief and make people angrier, thus making them easier to control or at least have them rely on the government (thus giving them more power).


#355: Valley of the Lost Candles This one I can’t find as much information on as I wish I could. There are two posts from 4chan’s /x/ board that I was able to find that gave conflicting reports, so I’ll run with them as they’re both fairly interesting.


The first claims that while filming Beyond the Valley of the Unltravixens, Russ Meyer, along with his cast and crew, were forced off of the set when an unexpected storm struck. After it passed and they went back, they were unable to find the set. Since then, treasure hunters and b-movie fans have searched through the Californian wilderness, but have come up empty handed.


The second version is that there were set pieces from the film Valley of the Lost Dolls that were believed to have been used in real magical acts. However, they disappeared and some believe that beloved film critic Roger Ebert stole them.


Neither of these versions have anything to do with candles, but it’s all I was able to come up with and that alone is a conspiracy in of itself. Unless, of course, it’s all a joke.


#356: Kurt Cobain Was Murdered Often hailed as one of the greatest musicians ever, Kurt Cobain’s death has long been shrouded in controversy. Fans of Nirvana believe that his wife, Courtney Love, had him murdered due to him wanting to leave her. Others suspect that Nirvana’s record label had him killed due to him not desiring to make music for profit. Officially, his death has been ruled a suicide, but truth seekers remain undeterred and continue to look for proof that says otherwise.


#358: Second Hand Smoke Isn’t Real There are some who believe that the smoke produced from cigarettes and cigars doesn’t have any negative effects on those who inhale it. You can bet your lucky stars that most doctors find this theory, along with the one that cigarettes have extremely positive health benefits, to be incredibly silly at best and horribly misguided at worst. Take it from me personally: smoking isn’t going to help your health, nor is second hand smoke a myth/conspiracy. Just trust me here. Please.

#359: Syria While the Syrian chemical attacks are a conspiracy, the entire country has a conspiracy surrounding it thanks to the civil war. Many believe that the so-called rebels are in fact ISIS troops that were—or are actively being—funded by the CIA. The belief is that the US and NATO want Bashar al-Assad to be overthrown so a gas pipeline can be built from Syria to Europe. This is so Europe doesn’t need to rely on Russia so much for gas. Whether or not you believe this generally doesn’t matter that much as the general consensus when it comes to Syria is that the United States shouldn’t be there and that the entire ordeal is a waste of taxpayer money


#360: RFID Radio Frequency Identification (or RFID) is something that you may know as “implanting chips into humans so you can monitor there every movement and action”. Christians claim that a device like this would be the Mark of the Beast (which is referenced in the Book of Revelation). Many Illuminati/New World Order believers suspect that RFID will one day be mandatory and will be the final step in establishing an authoritarian government where slavery is equal to freedom. Could such a thing happen? Only time will tell, but once it does arrive, there won’t be any fighting back. You will submit or you will die.


#361: 7 Nations in 5 Years I’ll let this excerpt from an interview I yanked off of Genius do the talking here.


[AMY GOODMAN]
Do you see a replay in what happened in the lead-up to the war with Iraq -- the allegations of the weapons of mass destruction, the media leaping onto the bandwagon?


[GEN. WESLEY CLARK]
Well, in a way. But, you know, history doesn’t repeat itself exactly twice. What I did warn about when I testified in front of Congress in 2002, I said if you want to worry about a state, it shouldn’t be Iraq, it should be Iran. But this government, our administration, wanted to worry about Iraq, not Iran.


I knew why, because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.” And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.”


So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” -- meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office -- “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”


[AMY GOODMAN]
I’m sorry. What did you say his name was?


[GEN. WESLEY CLARK]
I’m not going to give you his name.


[AMY GOODMAN]
So, go through the countries again.


[GEN. WESLEY CLARK]
Well, starting with Iraq, then Syria and Lebanon, then Libya, then Somalia and Sudan, and back to Iran. So when you look at Iran, you say, “Is it a replay?” It’s not exactly a replay. But here’s the truth: that Iran, from the beginning, has seen that the presence of the United States in Iraq was a threat -- a blessing, because we took out Saddam Hussein and the Baathists. They couldn’t handle them. We took care of it for them. But also a threat, because they knew that they were next on the hit list. And so, of course, they got engaged. They lost a million people during the war with Iraq, and they’ve got a long and unprotectable, unsecurable border. So it was in their vital interest to be deeply involved inside Iraq. They tolerated our attacks on the Baathists. They were happy we captured Saddam Hussein.


But they're building up their own network of influence, and to cement it, they occasionally give some military assistance and training and advice, either directly or indirectly, to both the insurgents and to the militias. And in that sense, it's not exactly parallel, because there has been, I believe, continuous Iranian engagement, some of it legitimate, some of it illegitimate. I mean, you can hardly fault Iran because they're offering to do eye operations for Iraqis who need medical attention. That's not an offense that you can go to war over, perhaps. But it is an effort to gain influence.


And the administration has stubbornly refused to talk with Iran about their perception, in part because they don't want to pay the price with their domestic -- our US domestic political base, the rightwing base, but also because they don't want to legitimate a government that they've been trying to overthrow. If you were Iran, you'd probably believe that you were mostly already at war with the United States anyway, since we've asserted that their government needs regime change, and we've asked congress to appropriate $75 million to do it, and we are supporting terrorist groups, apparently, who are infiltrating and blowing up things inside Iraq -- Iran. And if we're not doing it, let's put it this way: we're probably cognizant of it and encouraging it. So it's not surprising that we're moving to a point of confrontation and crisis with Iran.


My point on this is not that the Iranians are good guys -- they're not -- but that you shouldn't use force, except as a last, last, last resort. There is a military option, but it's a bad one.


Basically, some think that General Clark was implying that the US would invade all seven countries for nefarious purposes.


#362: Bruce and Brendan Lee There’s admittedly a reason to suspect something fishy in the way of Bruce Lee’s death. It’s never been conclusively solved and a fairly popular theory is that the Chinese mafia killed him for not starring in their films. Another theory is that Chinese martial arts masters killed him for teaching their secrets to westerners; both theories continue to claim that the death of Brendan Lee was pursuing their vendetta against the Lee bloodline into the next generation. Others suspect they were sacrificial murders.


#363: Magic There are some out there that suspect that the existence of magic—both natural and dark—has been suppressed and covered up. 


#364: The Ouija Board Some think that Hasbro knows how dangerous the Ouija Board really is and sell it in an effort to bring demonic entities into our world. Someone, anyone, call Zak Bagans!


#365: Depopulation This one has very heavy roots in the Georgia Guidestones, but survives on its own thanks to the belief that the global elite don’t want 7+ billion humans on the planet. The idea is that the powers that be are either planning a massive depopulation effort to reduce it down to about 500 million. How they’ll do this varies based on who you ask. Chemtrails are an extremely popular theory, but others include war, viruses like AIDS and Ebola, abortion (to at least stall repopulation efforts), addictive drugs (heroin and pain killers are two popular ones that are brought up), and the various chemicals added to food and water. These are but a few that have been put forward and while the efforts to slow down the growth of the human population haven’t succeeded, there are those that believe that global martial law will be put into place and that the undesirables (those with mental health problems, the weak, the elderly, etc.) will be exterminated when that time comes.


#366: Animal Spying Some suspect that wild animals are being used to spy on other countries by attaching cameras onto them. One example I was able to find is a claim that Israel attached cameras to sharks to spy on naval vessels.


#367: The Montauk Project Popular lore and some truth seekers believe that the Montauk Project is what birthed the Philadelphia Experiment (among other things).


#368: The Battle of Los Angeles To the credit of this theory, this event has never been completely solved. The common explanation was war nerves and a possible weather balloon, but a fair number of people don’t accept that explanation.


The Battle of Los Angeles was an event where the US military fired off thousands of anti-air shells at what they thought were Japanese airplanes. However, they never did any damage to the aircraft and the end result left a few civilians dead.


Some good old ardent truth seekers believe that the aircraft was an alien ship, something that eyewitnesses themselves claim. While this is often ignored as conspiracy talk, the Battle of Los Angeles remains one of the more compelling UFO encounters due to the reaction by the army and the location of the sighting. It’s likely second only to the legendary Phoenix Lights


#369: MH370 Malaysia Airlines has had some pretty bad luck when it comes to their airplanes. The wreckage of MH370 remains lost (save for a few pieces) and the rumors and theories as to what happened range from plausible to rejected concepts for a Sy-Fy original movie that would be written and directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. The ones I can name off the top of my head are:


- One of the pilots flew the plane into the ocean as he was suicidal (this is the theory I hear the most often).


- Aliens abducted the passengers and crew; the plane was either taken with it, vaporized, or fell into the sea.


- The plane flew into a black hole, wormhole, or a rip in time and space.


- The plane was shot down by another country (either on accident or on purpose).


- The plane was diverted to North Korea for unknown reasons.


- The plane was diverted to Russia.


- A terrorist blew up the plane.


- An engine malfunction caused the plane to crash.


The generally accepted theory is the first one, but some have also suspected that a terrorist or malfunction could’ve been the culprit. Whatever the case may be, MH370 has never been found and it remains a compelling mystery in its own right. One that attracts some bright-eyed truth seekers. Godspeed, folks!


#370: The Kalergi Plan This ties into the White Genocide/Great Replacement theory, which makes this one of the super volatile theories. The Kalergi Plan is a lot like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in that it's officially said to be a hoax, though the author of the former is known; a man by the name of Gerd Honsik wrote about the Kalergi Plan in a 2005 book by the same name. According to Honsik, it’s a plan that was created by an Austrian politician named Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi. Allegedly, it was heavily promoted in many aristocratic circles. The idea was to have white Europeans race mix with immigrants (which many—or at least I believe it to be many, I could be wrong—white nationalists say is happening now).


Over time, the Kalergi Plan has begun to be applied in North America and while it's officially viewed as a conspiracy theory, there’s no shortage of groups that promote it as a real plan to eliminate the white man from the picture. I leave it up to you to decide for yourself if it’s real or not since I don’t believe it is in my place to dictate how you live your life. That said, I hope to God Google doesn’t remove me from their indexing for trying to remain unbiased and simply trying to present the facts of what the theory is about. I also hope nobody scolds me for including it.


#371: Forced Chakra Removal Some believe the New World Order forcibly removes your chakras at birth.


#372: The Death of Elisa Lam This very is on my to-do list and has been for quite some time. God willing, I’ll get to it before long. Anyways, there are a few theories at work here. Some suspect that the Cecil Hotel (which is where Lam was staying) is cursed. Many, many deaths have taken place there and Richard Ramirez—better known as The Night Stalker (not to be confused with Joseph James DeAngelo, The Original Night Stalker/Golden State Killer)—lived there for some time.


Another theory posits that synchronicity was at work. I’m going to say right now, I haven’t the faintest idea what this theory is trying to get at, but I refuse to outright dismiss it because this theory is so bizarre that I’d be doing a great disservice to those who’ve dedicated a lot of time to it. As such, click here here for a nice write-up on the concept and how it relates to Lam’s case.


That said, there is a description of a YouTube video that explains why I think this theory is believed. Basically, a place called the Last Bookstore was one of the last locations that Lam was seen prior to her death. It utilizes a registrant privacy company for their website (which is based in Burnaby, the suburb of Vancouver where Lam was from). However, while the address that’s given I'd the PO box on Canada Way in Burnaby, the postal and zip codes that are displayed for the address aren’t. Rather, they show up as inside the Forest Lawn Cemetery. That’s where Lam’s buried. Some believe this isn’t a coincidence.


A third and final theory that’s been put forth by some truth seekers is that Lam saw something she shouldn’t have and was silenced so she wouldn’t reveal it. Some think it was a drug trade, a child/sex trafficking exchange, or something related to organized crime.


There are a ton of others, but those are the ones that I know of that relate to some of the more conspiracy themed ones. If you’ve never looked into the case, I suggest you do so. Even without the conspiracy theories, it’s an extremely bizarre case.


#373: Polar Shift Oh good God, it’s this theory. I want to so badly do a full-blown write-up on it because it’s one of the most frustrating things I’ve ever read. Okay, to those that believe this theory: I mean no disrespect with what I’m going to say. I just really need to vent on how much I disagree with you.


Polar shifts are a strange thing. They happen over time, albeit very slowly. Now as for the conspiracy, there was a theory back in July of 2016 that there was going to be a sudden one (a Geomagnetic Reversal) that would change the Axis of our planet and thus bring about cataclysmic earthquakes and terrible tsunamis. This didn’t happen because that isn’t how polar shifts work in the slightest and to believe in it is to deny science to a degree so large, you could easily use Pluto as a ping-pong ball. Despite that, some adamantly believe that they do operate like that and that the government is covering up an imminent one that will cause something on the scale of what the 2012 disaster was meant to be. It hasn’t happened no matter how often it’s predicted and if you’re afraid of a sudden calamity caused by a Geomagnetic Reversal, you really shouldn’t. You should be more afraid of a spider crawling across your desk.


#374: Phantom Time It’s claimed by some that the years between 614 and 911 A.D. never happened and that the middle ages were nothing more than works of complete fiction. So why do we have documentation of that time period? Well, according to Heribert Illig, the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, Pope Sylvester II, and Byzantine Emperor Conistantine VII all worked together to create 297 years of false history. They did this as they desired to place themselves into a very special year: 1000 A.D. They also wished to validate Emperor Otto III’s claim to the throne.


#375: The Endless Ocean There’s a very interesting theory that our oceans never end; there is no “seafloor”. Rather, the ocean keeps going and going until you’re crushed by the insurmountable pressure, an unspeakable eldritch horror were to consume your vessel, or you die from starvation.


#376: Door Dogs There are two versions to this one that I found, but I believe the second is the one that’s the actual conspiracy. Despite that, I want to mention the former for the sake of completion.


The first version is a superstition. Dogs that stand in the doorway or follow someone in from outside are soon to die. There are a few explanations as to where the origin of this belief comes from, though the most common one I’ve personally seen is that the dogs are servants of Nefertiti.


As for the conspiracy, they’re definitely not what I could have ever expected. Supposedly, they’re genetically modified and enhanced canine units that have been specially trained to detect drugs, weapons, and an array of other things through a door. When they’ve detected whatever they need to, they’ll kick the door down. This incredible strength extends to their bite, which is powerful enough to crush bone.


#377: Water is Sentient There’s a belief that water is capable of feeling (or at least understanding) emotion. How they came to this conclusion is like something out of a mad scientist story. When scientists applied “emotion” to water, which was frozen and the snowflakes were examined. When love was applied (presumably via a piece of paper), the snowflakes were nice, intricate, and beautiful. When anger was applied, they had jagged edges and were “hateful” in appearance. If you want something far more thorough, Dead Rabbit Radio covered this. I can guarantee you that it’s one of the weirdest things you’ll ever hear.


#378: Osama bin Laden There are a ton of theories surrounding the former al-Qaeda leader. There are those that believe Osama bin Laden died in the early 2000s (a significantly more prevalent theory; bin Laden had kidney disease), that he was nothing more than a puppet that the United States controlled, that he was a CIA asset/agent (again, a much more prevalent theory), and that he was a never actually killed. In the case of that one, some believe that the supposed individual who was killed during the raid in 2011 was actually an actor or an entirely different person. Most generally believe that Osama was already dead at the time. Whether or not you believe these theories generally depends on how you view[ed] Osama. While none of the theories generally paint him as being a good man, most do paint him as not being the boogeyman that we’ve all been told he was.


#379: Dream Hacking Much like the Christopher Nolan film Inception, it’s been claimed that the organizations like the CIA and MI6 have the ability to access it “hack” into the dreams of people in order to either influence the dreamer, discover information, or manipulate them.


#380: Human Immortality This ties a bit into the concept of reincarnation. The theory goes that when we die, we’re reborn, but get amnesia and thus can’t remember our previous life. This cycle repeats endlessly.


#381: Pro-war Buddhism This is a bit tricky to really define as a conspiracy and more of a misinterpretation of a belief system due to how it’s been portrayed. Although Buddhism is generally seen as an extremely pacifistic religion/belief system, it does teach that conflict is at times necessary and permitted. History has also seen Buddhists take up arms to defend their countries and they’ve been involved in conflicts between nations and people. Some don’t know this and thus believe that Buddhism is completely pacifistic and doesn’t promote violence whatsoever (nor have they been involved in any armed conflict).


#382: Paleolithic Deep State There’s a theory that the Deep State isn’t headed by the global elite, bankers, or Zionist Jews. Rather, our overlords are none other than our ancestors, the Neanderthals, who have survived into the modern day.


#383: Jack the Ripper The legendary serial killer who terrorized Whitechapel has had numerous suspects, though none have ever stuck thanks to the unfathomable luck that Jack saw fall into his hands. Some dispute this however and instead claim that a cover-up took place. It’s proposed that the British royal family, in an effort to avoid a scandal, had police destroy evidence due to Prince Albert being the killer.


#384: The Collapse of the Sun Some are of the opinion that our Sun will die out significantly sooner than we think it will. This is because aliens are using it to refuel their spacecrafts and mining it for other resources. The elites of the world know of this refuse to tell us; they instead plan on going underground and surviving there while us peasants die when the Sun ultimately collapses.


#385: Dark City is Nonfiction Some believe that the 1998 cult classic film, Dark City, is a work of nonfiction. I sadly can’t much more on it than that, but I wanted to keep it due to it being a pretty unusual theory (even if it ends up being nothing more than a joke).


#386: The Glyphs on Saturn’s Moons There are what look like claw marks on two of Saturn’s moons: Dione and Rhea. Some have speculated that these marks are in fact glyphs left by aliens and that the “confusion” expressed by scientists is an act to cover up the fact that we have proof of alien life.


#387: Patomskiy Crater A prevalent theory claims that the Patomskiy Crater was formed a UFO that crashed. Others suggest that it leads to a secret alien base and that the Russian government is covering this up.


#388: The Bloop The famous underwater sound that was believed to have been an animal larger than the blue whale has been the subject of conspiracies (including a Lovecraftian one). Some allege it was made by the Biblical Leviathan as it awoke from a long slumber; a herald of the End Days. Others posit that an underwater society or aliens made it.


#389: Ashtar An alien race or planet with its own lore behind it, there’s been debate on whether it’s merely an urban myth that took on a life of its own or if Ashtar truly is a real thing. The most famous of its appearances is when a broadcast hijacking occurred and this was played.


This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. For many years you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet Earth. We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your world so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disaster which threatens your world, and the beings on our worlds around you. This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The New Age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments. Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again. All your weapons of evil must be removed. The time for conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the higher stages of its evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this. You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill. Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning New Age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution. Hear now the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides at present operating on your world. They will suck your energy from you – the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends and give you worthless dross in return. Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you and you will lead yourselves onto the path of evolution. This is our message to our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know now that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your Earth than your scientists admit. We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light and will do all we can to help you. Have no fear, seek only to know yourselves, and live in harmony with the ways of your planet Earth. We here at the Ashtar Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the planes of your existence. May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the cosmos.


Some believe that this intrusion really was talking to us.


#390: The Hollow Universe A theory that turns the concept of the Hollow Earth up a few hundred notches, those that subscribe to this theory claim that our entire universe is hollow. This also ties into the “reality is a simulation” theory.


#391: God From Four Corners In Christian theology, the Holy Trinity is made up of God the Father (God Himself), God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit (The Holy Ghost). While this has been around since the dawn of the religion, some believe that there’s a fourth entity that has been suppressed and that the Holy Trinity that we’ve all been told about is in fact a sanitized version. This fourth entity has generally been thought to be the “evil” side (or at least a dark side) of God and it’s most often claimed that Satan is the fourth figure in what we call the Holy Trinity.


#392: Elsagate I so badly want to write about this theory, but it’s one that I can never properly stomach due to how gross and unnerving it is. There are videos that have popped up on YouTube and YouTube Kids that claim to be “child-friendly”. However, they contain highly inappropriate content. These include violence, sexual references/actions, extreme fetishes, drugs and alcohol, injections with highly questionable materials (sometimes fecal matter), and extremely dangerous and upsetting situations (be it giving birth, inflation, or being raped).


YouTube has received an extremely large amount of backlash for being slow to deal with these videos, though some have suspected that this is due to how financially lucrative they are (the videos themselves have garnered millions of views). Beyond that though, the motives for the creation of the videos is unknown. This is where truth seekers enter the fray. Some have suggested that they’re an attempt at trying to legitimize/normalize pedophilia or sexual abuse towards minors. Whatever the case may be, Elsagate is something that’s worth looking into if you want to understand just how screwed up and incredibly bad YouTube’s policy against rule breaking content can be. One of the best coverages I’ve seen on it was done by a YouTube channel called “Some Ordinary Gamers”.


#393: Expanding Earth Some suspect that part of the reason for the movement of continents is due to our planet’s mass and volume increasing over time.


#394: Sky-snag Theory This is like something out of a David Lynch film. Basically, whenever the air tears itself apart, the resulting “sky-snag” will take on the shape and texture of a metallic disc. Then, as the sky splits apart, lights will shine out from the laceration. Topping things off is that this supposed metallic disc will move around due to the wind. Why does this happen? I’ll let the second paragraph of where I found the above information do the talking for me. Click here if you want to see.


The sky, like everything else that moves. With the friction of rubbing, scraping and flowing the air will, on occasion, burst seam. The rip will wrap around itself, forming a concave surface with an inherent polish.


So basically: UFOs are formations when the sky rips itself.


#395: The Air is Poison A rather creative theory, some believe that the air is slowly killing us and that’s why some of us die of so-called “natural causes”.


#396: Animal-plant Hybrids Some suspect that there are experiments going that where animals and plants are being fused into sentient botanical monstrosities. Biolante shall become a reality!


#397: Runescape.nyc Here's a really oddball theory. The idea is that whenever you play the online game Runescape, you actually control a real life bot in New York City.


#398: Bugchasing There are kinks and fetishes for a lot of things, so it stands to reason that there’d be one that revolves around the HIV/AIDS viruses. While it’s said that such a fetish is as niche as could be, some believe that “bugchasers” are more common than is let on to believe and that they deliberately infect people with the viruses as it gets them off.


#399: The Third Eye is in the Anus Some suspect that we have a third eye (literally or metaphorically) and it’s located in our anus.


#400: Human vs. Insect Wars Giant insects are one of my worst fears. Heck, giant creepy crawlies in general. As such, this theory has me wanting to get a giant can of RAID.


The idea is that the Carboniferous extinction was the product of nuclear holocaust that was carried out by ancient interstellar humans. You see, we were supposedly on the losing end of a war against gigantic sentient bugs (some live on as the humanoid mantis aliens). Although we were defeated and humiliated, we also learned our lesson and opted to lower the oxygen levels on Earth so they’d never again grow to be so big, bad, scary, and make us nuke our own planet.


Is there any evidence for this theory? No, but there are a ton of people who suspect that we were once more advanced than we are now long ago. As such, this theory has a fair number of supporters—or at least part of it does.


#401: Michael Jackson is Alive It’s claimed that Michael Jackson faked his death to escape stardom. This theory operates in a very similar manner to the one about Elvis being alive.


#402: Humans Originate from Mars This theory centers around the idea that humanity originally inhabited Mars. However, after a catastrophic war, we fled to Earth in order to repopulate and start over.


#403: The Amazon Rainforest Was Built As it advertises itself, some suspect that the Amazon Rainforest was built. The architects were ancient humans.


#404: Club 21 Not to be confused with Club 33, Club 21 is said to be located near the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in Disneyland. It’s to be an extremely secretive strip club that only the elite are allowed access to. Officiy, it’s said to be an urban myth, but some insist that it’s real.


#405: Alex Jones is Controlled Opposition The concept of controlled opposition is nothing new. Many people who rally behind President Trump believe that most of Fox News is controlled opposition; their masters being the Deep State. Some who lean farther right (or subscribe to paleoconservatism) believe that the founder and host of Infowars—Alex Jones—is controlled opposition. Some of this has to do with him having been married to a Jewish woman and some of it has to do with his eccentric behavior leading some to believe that he’s being paid to make the truth movement look like it’s filled with schizophrenics.


#406: White Genocide Oh boy. I can’t wait for the comments I’ll get about this one. It’s one I was hesitant to include due to just how volatile it is. If you deny it, there are guaranteed to be a lot of people who will lambaste you. Yet, I felt that if I didn’t include it, I’d be doing a disservice. Much like 9/11, Roswell and many other theories, it’s an extremely prevalent theory in certain circles, so whether or not you believe it to be fact is, in my eyes, irrelevant.


This is a theory that many, many white nationalists treat very seriously. The idea is often connected to the Kalergi Plan, if not outright called a product of it. The theory goes that Jews are driving up immigration into the United States in order to make whites a minority in “their own country”. This is so that Jews will have unlimited power and won’t have any unruly dissenters who can rebel. While it is true that white birth rates are slowing down in the US, the reasoning behind it is primarily due to little desire for people to have children (largely due to the stress people have thanks to student debt, a reliance on technology, and what I personally consider to be extreme narcissism).


Where this theory differentiates from the Kalergi Plan is the Immigration Act that former senator Ted Kennedy introduced back in the 1960s. Many also attribute that to the theory of White Genocide. As such, this theory is one that blurs the line between conspiracy theory and what some seem an ever-changing world. In the eyes of white nationalists, the Immigration Act and the dwindling white birth rate are due to the degeneracy pushed by Jews and other groups (which basically makes people not want to have children). In the eyes of skeptics and typically left leaning people, it’s little more than the globalized world changing the face of the world. This difference in views has led to more arguments in various comment sections than I could ever care to count.


If you want to look into the White Genocide theory, you shouldn’t have much difficulty finding sources on it. There are plenty of articles that debunk it and websites dedicated to the topic (which you may need to dig to find if you use Google). However, if you’re someone who wouldn’t consider themselves to be a white nationalist or anything of that sort, I’d advise against looking into this theory. Odds are, you’ll only get angry.


#407: Challenger It’s been claimed by some that the Challenger space shuttle was the destroyed by extraterrestrials or that the true cause of the shuttle’s explosion was covered up so NASA wouldn’t appear incompetent to the nation (let alone the entire world). Some also believe that terrorists sabotaged the shuttle. This also goes for the space shuttle Columbia.


#408: Tupac is Alive The rap equivalent to Elvis and Michael Jackson, there are many who suspect that Tupac Shakur is in fact alive and waiting to make a grand return to the music industry. If that’s the case, I wonder where Biggie is.


#409: Skinwalker Ranch The center of many scary Internet stories, Skinwalkers are said to be incredibly powerful Navajo Shaman who can gain the powers—or even take on the form—of a creature whose skin/pelt they wear. Nowadays though, they’re said to be shapeshifters who are ghoulish in appearance; generally being closer in appearance to Fleshgaits (whose powers they’re often said to have, like mimicking voices and taking on the guise of those they kill or see).


One popular location for finding these creatures is Skinwalker Ranch, which is said to be a hotbed not only for seeing Skinwalkers, but UFOs, aliens, the Men in Black, and ghosts. It’s located in Utah and has been the sight of horror films and television shows. It’s definitely worth reading about if you’re into this type of stuff. As for the truth seeker’s theories, many believe that the place has special properties to it and that the real reason[s] behind the numerous paranormal happenings is being covered up by the government.


#410: The Nevada Triangle Much like the Bermuda Triangle, there’s a triangular area in the state of Nevada where planes and people have vanished. Given that Nevada is largely owned by the US government, it’s believed that various tests and experiments have been responsible for these disappearances.


#411: Missing 411 The famous theory presented by former sheriff’s deputy David Paulides, Missing 411 is the theory that the National Park Service is covering up an array of disappearances that take place in the forests of the United States. While generally seen as nothing more than quackery, the theory is one of the most popular in the realm of the paranormal and supernatural due to forests being a haven for many terrifying cryptids and encounters with all things unknown.


#412: Polybius This will likely forever be one of my favorite stories/urban myths. Widely regarded as gaming’s greatest legend and a story that has plagued the minds of many truth seekers for over a decade, Polybius is a story that—officially—can be considered nothing more than a hoax. There’s a phenomenal documentary on YouTube that I suggest watching if you want to see where the story originates from.


That said, there are still some truth seekers that insist the arcade cabinet is—or was—real. Now if it was, then what exactly was it? Video games don’t really scream “conspiracy theory”. They’re entertainment and some could argue that maybe they’re there to dumb people down, but by and large, most don’t consider them to be something sinister.


This isn’t the case with Polybius. The game—which supposedly only saw release in Portland, Oregon—was said to be a puzzle-based game or a space shooter that was extremely addicting (with kids surrounding the machine and fighting over who got to play it next). It was also claimed that men in black suits would wait outside arcades and write down the names of those who got high scores.


As time went on, those who played the game suffered epilleptic seizures, night terrors, and some even committed suicide. There are also supposedly a few who became ardent anti-video game activists.


Eventually, the game was taken out of arcades and never seen again. Nobody knows what happened to it, though a man named Stephen Roach claims that it did exist. However, no photos (beyond a few that are said to be fan-made arcade cabinets) exist. Some suspect it was the video gaming equivalent to MKUltra. Others, as I’ve said, believe it was nothing more than a hoax. Whatever the case may be, the legend is likely to never die. Not unless another video gaming fable springs up that takes the world by storm. One may even say it will rise up.


#413: The 2004 Indonesian Tsunami There are claims that an earthquake machine test caused the devastating tsunami that struck Indonesia. Other theories include aliens triggering the earthquake to fix Earth’s axis and an underwater nuclear explosion.


#414: Psyops Psychology operations are said to be military and government operations aimed at manipulating the public's perception and opinion of certain things. For example: some believe that QAnon is a psyop aimed at manipulating President Trump’s voter base into thinking he’s really with them when in reality, he’s a Deep State puppet.


#415: Oswald Doppelgangers There were reports on the day of President Kennedy’s assassination who claimed to see Lee Harvey Oswald. The thing is, these reports saw Oswald at the same time and claimed he was doing various “strange attention-grabbing things”. One person claimed to have seen him take a rental car for a joyride, only to return it trashed. Another saw him “shooting bullets of fire” at a gun range as he talked about killing the president. Although none of these witnesses were ever identified, the initial report on the assassination opted to treat the sightings as legitimate.

#416: Inside Out Humans I have no idea if this one is serious or not, so feel free to correct me. Some believe that we’re actually inside out and that our insides should be outside. At least, that’s what I think this theory is about.


#417: Time Travel It’s been alleged that the government has had access to time travel for decades (if not centuries) and that the use of it has caused the Mandela Effect.


#418: The Hidden Moons Although Earth does have a second moon in the loosest way possible, some suspect that Earth, in fact, has two or even three Moons that are hidden from us. For what reason is unknown and to date, it remains hidden beneath the shadow of the Moon being a hologram.


#419: Vault 7 This actually has a considerable amount of truth to it given that the CIA is known for nearly everything shady, deceptive, and questionable. Yet, when you shine such a light onto it, they get quite irritated. Here’s their response when WikiLeaks began to post about Vault 7.


The American public should be deeply troubled by any WikiLeaks disclosure designed to damage the Intelligence Community's ability to protect America against terrorists or other adversaries. Such disclosures not only jeopardize US personnel and operations, but also equip our adversaries with tools and information to do us harm


Now here’s how Julian Assange responded.


Most of these lagging companies have conflicts of interest due to their classified work with US government agencies. In practice such associations limit industry staff with US security clearances from fixing holes based on leaked information from the CIA. Should such companies choose to not secure their users against CIA or NSA attacks users may prefer organizations such as Mozilla or European companies that prioritize their users over government contracts.


Vault 7 was a series of documents that went into the CIA’s activities and capabilities when it comes to surveillance and cyber warfare. Everything you can read in regards to it is 100% true, though some conspiracies sprang up shortly after the documents were released. One of these is that the CIA framed the Russian government for interfering with the 2016 US elections. While this has been debated repeatedly ever since Donald Trump won the election, nothing has ever come out to prove this and as such, most label it a conspiracy theory by those who wish to blame the CIA for every little thing. Before anyone labels me as a sheep, I will fully admit that it wouldn’t shock me if they really did do such a thing. As I said, the CIA is known for doing extremely shady things. Nothing surprises me about them. They could piss my cereal and I wouldn’t bat an eye.


#420: Smithsonian Suppression I briefly touched upon this when I covered the Patterson-Gimlin Massacre in December. I still can’t quite find out what the entire deal is about this, but I believe it has to do with the Smithsonian Institute covering up portions of history it doesn’t want the public to know about.


#421: Gaia Some believe that the Earth Spirit, Gaia, is the creator of life and that it’s being covered up.


#422: Webdriver Torso This was an extremely popular mystery back in the day. Officially, Webdriver Torso is a YouTube channel that is operated by Google that has uploaded a ton of videos, their length generally being mere seconds. Their purpose is to test sound and uploading capabilities. However, truth seekers believe there is much more to this than we’re let on believe. Some think that the real purpose for the channel is to transmit code to other nations and/or the Deep State in a manner similar to Numbers Stations. This theory generally extends to Unfavorable Semicircle.


#423: Elvis is Alive I’m sure everyone has heard of the claims that the King of Rock is alive. The story goes that Elvis faked his death to retire in peace and has been living out his days in another country. No matter how hard people try to debunk this theory, it’ll never go away and the legend of Elvis being alive will live on like Tupac’s death.


#424: Demolition Elves An author named John Keel has written about how elves have supposedly been spotted prior to various catastrophes like the collapse of the Silver Bridge. 9/11, and numerous incidents in Iceland. Looks like Mothman is a delivery service.


#425: Quantum Jumping This is more or less teleportation, but in fancy science lingo. The idea is that the ability to teleport, be it via machine or other means, has been available for a long time, but has been covered up. I for one would love to be able to teleport, it would minimize the need to get myself a Coke.


#426: Memphis Rap Sigils Per Dead Rabbit Radio, this theory has a variety of theories behind it. The most plausible of them is that three Memphis rap groups summoned a water goddess after sacrificing three children. Not long after, the Memphis subgenre of rap took off. The sigils refer to the energy of death being imbued into the music tapes.


#427: Concrete Enema This can be found on many Conspiracy Iceberg images. Apparently, it was a left over from the fetish iceberg since people thought it’d be a funny troll. Not that they needed to as a homosexual couple actually performed a concrete enema; a man had his boyfriend pour concrete mix into his rectum and, well, it solidified and caused extreme pain. You know, because concrete.


Anyways, according to some, there’s an actual conspiracy to this. It could be nothing more than a joke, but who am I to let an excuse for something silly go to waste? The idea is that concrete enemas are used as a torture tactic. Concrete is poured into the prisoners rectum and then they’re force fed. The feces is subsequently backed up due to the concrete as their insides expand/stretch.


#428: Shadow Government This theory is generally connected extremely heavily to the Illuminati, New World Order, and Deep State. In fact, it’s connected so much to them, that it’s often used as a synonym for them. Despite that, I’m including it as its own entry because there are some differences. The idea is that there’s a shadow government (shocker) that operates behind many countries (typically ones that have a lot of influence/power, such as the US and Britain). How it works is that the illusion that civilians have control of their country is given. In reality, they don’t: the Shadow Government actually does. The will of the people is merely a veil that hides the puppeteer from the puppet.


What the Shadow Government does is, well, everything. War, economics, laws, black operations, anything and everything is what the Shadow Government does. Your representatives, your senators, your governor, your mayors, all of them are obsolete and merely pawns. The Deep State—who are typically noted as being the CIA and other intelligence communities—are there in case an uprising occurs. The Shadow Government, meanwhile, are said to be the Illuminati, the Bilderberg Group, Jesuits, and/or any other shadowy, sneaky, secretive organization/group. Just what their endgame is is unknown, but people speculate it’s a one world government while others suspect it’s the complete and total subjugation of the government’s respective country.


#429: GGGQEP That crazy abbreviation stands for Gadolinium Gallium Garnet Quantum Electronic Processors and relates to quantum computing. Supposedly, by having three lasers etching and reading, you can store exabytes of data with exahertz of processing power.


#430: The Pulse Nightclub Shooting Although Omar Mateen admitted on the phone to authorities that he carried out the Pulse Nightclub shooting and had declared his allegiance to ISIS, some suspect that the horrific massacre was a false flag attack. The reasoning was, like many other theories on this megalist, in order to stir up the desire for more gun regulation and to erode freedoms.


#431: The Coup of President Trump Likely to go down in American history as one of the most contested and debated claims, there’s a very prevalent theory that the Democratic Party—along with neo-conservatives and RINOs (Republicans In Name Only)—are trying to overthrow President Trump. The reasoning for this is due to Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, which has been considered one of the greatest upset victories in American history. After all, the establishment politicians, the media, and nearly every other prominent individual never expected Trump to win, let alone by the sizable margin that he did when it came to the Electoral College. As such, many believe that the controversies he’s suffered, the allegations of racism, sexual assault, and xenophobia are all being thrown at him due to his desire to “drain the swamp”. The recent impeachment has also been claimed to be a part of the coup, but the acquittal by the US Senate threw that out the window. Whether or not a second impeachment process begins will only further fuel this theory until Trump either loses his reelection or wins once more in yet another upset victory that will be echoed for generations to come.


#432: The United Kingdom Started the American Civil War You kick the British out of your country and what do they do? They try and reclaim it!


While history claims that the American Civil War was over economics, slavery, states rights, and just about every other reason that wasn’t connected to Abraham Lincoln’s hat, some claim that it was in fact the British who orchestrated it. You see, after the American Revolution failed, the British tried with the War of 1812. Then that failed. Then they tried with the establishment of a Central Bank. That failed too. So finally, with the assistance of the Rothschild Family and people like Albert Pike and George Peabody, the British went with their next plan: a Civil War. They manipulated both the North and the South in order to create a war between the two factions. Their plan? To take advantage of the divided nation and reclaim it.


It didn’t work, but some truth seekers believe it to be the real reason that the Civil War began.


#433: Bill Cosby Was Framed The idea here is very simple, but also very strange. To some though, it’s extremely easy to grasp. Bill Cosby, the legendary comedian, was framed for his numerous rapes and sexual assaults. The reasoning is that, not long before the allegations came out, he had done a standup routine where (and I must confess that I am paraphrasing this because I can’t quite remember the exact wording) he told black Americans to stop being lazy and to get jobs; to basically take charge of their lives.


Why he was framed in response to this comes down to the belief that the Democratic Party and, likewise, the Illuminati/New World Order want blacks to be subservient and obedient; the belief is that they never changed who they were from the time of the Civil War. Due to Cosby’s influence, he was basically derailed and delegitimised. There’s also a belief that rapper Kanye West’s mental breakdown was a case similar to this.


#434: Highway Trolls There are some who claim to have encountered trolls—or creatures similar to trolls—on or near highways around the world. While no proof has ever been presented to prove their existence, some suspect that their existence is being covered up by the government. As a side note: if you want a really great movie that uses this premise, check out the Norwegian film Trollhunter.


#435: Legal Rape Resorts This is one that I’m tempted to believe given the revelations of what happened on Jeffrey Epstein’s island and how many boys and girls were violated and raped. The idea is as the name implies: there are resorts where it’s 100% legal to rape anyone you wish.


#436: Medieval Found Footage Although I personally like to imagine that the medieval times were a lot like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (with dragons spinning around like helicopter blades and people repeatedly saying they took arrows to the knee), some believe that they were quite advanced in their technology.


Supposedly, there were castle ruins discovered in the 1960s. In it, there was a smooth, stone tablet that was activated by blood. When fed this blood, the tablet projected images; video footage of a witch that was hunted, tried, and subsequently executed. Upon her death, the castle collapsed and the feed was killed. Due to this find, the tablet was stolen by the government and studied. After this, rumors began to spread that it was being withheld due to it proving the existence of magic.


#437: Voter Fraud A favorite pastime of Democrats and Republicans is to accuse the other of cheating via voter fraud. The Democrats love to accuse Republicans (colloquially known as RethugliKKKans by anyone under the age of 25) of voter disenfranchisement by suppressing the voters of minorities, passing laws that restrict voting rights, and using electronic voting machines that can be hacked by the boogeyman of the world: Russians.


I guess the red scare never ended.


Anyways, Republicans, meanwhile, love to say that Democrats (colloquially known as DemoKKKrats by anyone over the age of 40) allow illegals to vote, bus them around, and have the dead vote. The third one is actually true as there have been instances where those who are deceased have voted in the past, though it doesn’t happen often (it that it ever should). The instances of bussing people around has I believe happened, but I cannot verify it in an unbiased manner and as such, I leave judgement up to you.


Both parties have had instances of suspicious voting activity, but never has any major voting fraud occurred that’s been discovered—in recent time—to where the integrity of an outcome has been called into question. The closest has been the 2018 House Election for the ninth district of North Carolina, but the result was overturned before the representative could be seated.


#438: Akashic Chronicle This a phenomenally grand theory that is worth its own write-up. The Akashic Chronicle (sometimes called the Akashic Records) is said to be a compendium of every single human event, thought, word, emotion, and intent that has ever existed throughout all of history, be it past, present, or future. Naturally, it doesn’t exist on the physical plane. Rather, it’s said to live on the etheric plane. Some suspect that such access has already been made and that we’re capable of seeing into the future through this chronicle.


#439: Ancient History Happened in the Middle Ages This theory, as it advertises, claims that history we’re told happened thousands of years ago merely happened centuries ago. Goodness, time moves fast!


#440: Weaponized Smallpox It’s believed by some that the highly dangerous disease, Smallpox, is (or was) weaponized as a biological weapon.


#441: SCHNELLOnline This one goes back to the early days of the Internet, specifically to Usenet (which was a forum where people could discuss a wide range of topics). Apparently, SCHNELLOnline was an online game/chatroom that was said to have an unnerving interface and a very weird user base. It was also said to be similar to that of Worlds Online, which some may be aware of as a YouTuber named Nexpo did a video on a supposed cult in the game. That’s where the conspiracies come into play; some believe that SCHNELLOnline was linked to either the supernatural or trafficking (likely child or sex trafficking).


#442: J.K. Rowling is an Actor Harry Potter has had a fair number of conspiracies surrounding it (such as the books being a guide to witchcraft and occult practices). One of the more interesting theories claims that author J.K. Rowling didn’t write the books and is instead an actor to hide the fact that the Illuminati or another Satanic group wrote the books to corrupt the youth of today. 


#443: Biblical Code It’s believed that the Holy Bible has numerous codes hidden within it that reveal a secret history of Jesus Christ and Christianity as a whole. This premise has been a favorite of hack author Dan Brown.


#444: Ningen Ah yes, the Antarctic Ocean humans that were seen by Japanese whale researchers. These things are said to have their existence covered up by the Japanese government with intimidation tactics akin to the Men in Black being used against eyewitnesses.


#445: Stonehenge The famous structure located in the United Kingdom has been at the center of many mysteries. Who built it? Why was it built? How did those that built it transport the stones? Well, according to some, aliens are responsible for it and that the truth had been covered up. Others suspect that our ancestors were significantly more advanced than we believe them to have been.


#446: Alien Abductions The idea of alien abduction is quite a scary one. While belief in it varies very heavily from person to person, there are some that believe the reason for it isn’t simply due to curious aliens. After all, why would they need to abduct hundreds of humans when a few would suffice for a simple experiment? Well, unless they dissect us like frogs (only we don’t die) because we’re science class experiments.


I digress, the theory posited here was explained somewhat in the Eisenhower one. Basically, a treaty/agreement was signed where they could abduct from time-to-time and in exchange, we get technology. There are some variations though, such as them just doing it out of pure malice and the treaty basically saying that they can abduct us and they won’t blow our planet up.


#447: Lindsay Lohan’s Twin It’s said that the remake of the 1961 film Parent Trap actually starred twins (as opposed to Lindsay Lohan playing both roles). However, a producer allegedly murdered one of them and her existence was subsequently suppressed and expunged. It’s also said that this is the reason that Lindsay has so many mental health problems.


#448: The Human Genome Humanity is constantly evolving thanks to technology becoming increasingly better. That said, our genome has been fully mapped and I don’t suspect that we’ll be growing wings, flippers, or a third leg anytime soon. Some disagree though and believe that the human genome hasn’t been fully mapped or that evolutionary traits are being suppressed.


#449: Transient Global Amnesia Greyspacing Wow, that’s a mouthful of a title. Anyways, also known as TGA greyspacing, this theory is centered around constant memory loss. Basically: it’s believed that there is a greater force that is creating perpetual mass amnesia and that time is nothing more than an infinite loop.


#450: Feminism The feminist movement has done a lot for women (though some would argue that it’s set women’s rights back in recent years). Like any rights-based movements though, it has a fair number of conspiracy theories surrounding it. Primarily surrounding leading figures in the movement; some suspect that Jewish overlords created the movement as a way to destroy the family unit of America by having women in the workforce, rather than having them at home nurturing children and acting as mothers. There’s also the belief that the modern day feminism is working to destroy masculinity and make men weaker and ultimately turn males effeminate.


#451: Slut-stocks This is like something out of a dystopian novel. Supposedly, there’s an extremely detailed database in the world of human trafficking where the value of escorts and prostitutes fluctuates like stock prices. The value goes up and down depending on how much physical and psychological trauma the prostitute has recently gone through.


#452: Lost Thunderbird Photo There’s supposedly a photograph that many claim to have seen. It allegedly she's a group of cowboys with a dead pterodactyl behind them that’s crucified to a barn. No such photograph exists and while the Tombstone Epitaph ran a story about cowboys killing a “dragon” in the 1800s, that contained no such photo. As such, many believe this to be a case of the Mandela Effect.


#453: Mr.112dirtbag This is a very weird one. While I’ve said that before on this megalist, I think this is the one where it really fits. Mr.112dirtbag wasn’t a conspiracy or even someone whose existence is debated. He did—or rather, he does—exist. He was an old man who posted videos on YouTube on the anniversary of Maura Murray’s disappearance (the 112 referencing where her vehicle was found and dirtbag referencing what Maura’s father called those responsible for her disappearance on TV; a “bunch of dirtbags”). They were edgy, weird, and quite creepy.


Many suspected that Mr.112dirtbag was the man responsible for Maura’s disappearance and reported him. While authorities have investigated the man and have cleared him as a suspect (supposedly, the man was trying to keep the story alive and has been actively investigating it himself), there are some who are extremely adamant that he knows more than he’s let on, if not being the one responsible for Maura’s disappearance.


#454: Obama 666 There was—and to a degree still is—a very strong belief that President Obama is the Antichrist. On the day of his inauguration, the winning lottery numbers in Chicago were 666, which helped to fuel this. To date, Obama has yet to reveal himself as the Antichrist, but some still anticipate it. Most who believe this also suspect that God Himself appointed Trump to the presidency and believe him to be the savior of America.


#455: Covfefe One of the funniest things to come out of President Trump’s tenure as the leader of the free world, Covfefe has been speculated to mean a fair number of things by those who support Trump. Some speculate it’s a hint that Trump knows of the Kek theory (which is an extremely elaborate, long, weird thing that ties into the periodic table). Others believe it was a screw up on his part when he was alerted to a bombing in Afghanistan (when he was going to mention how, despite the negative coverage he’s gotten, the economy has never been better). Whatever the case may be, Trump egged on people to find the hidden meaning behind Covfefe. Personally, I think it’s his favorite RWBY character. She’ll turn your life to gold, just like Trump Tower.


Brick, I swear, if you read that and make a snarky remark, I’m going to scream.


#456: The US Doesn’t Exist This is almost certainly a joke, but it’s way too good to not include. There are apparently Europeans and Australians that believe the United States is a simulation that’s being created by an incredibly powerful supercomputer.


#457: Lake Baikal There’s a theory that Russian divers discovered an alien base or civilization with sapient, aquatic humanoids beneath the frigid waters of Lake Baikal. The existence is now being covered up due to the divers being thrown out of the water and upwards of twenty feet into the air. Hopefully, since this discovery, the denizens of the lake have decided to leave a very helpful and friendly notice that reads something like: lake closed due to AIDS.


#458: The Clinton Body Count This is yet another one I’m certain will get me inflammatory comments—though with good reason. The Clinton’s have had quite a few associates die under mysterious circumstances, the most famous of them arguably being Vince Foster. While many people (primarily those who lean left) see this theory as nonsense, I nonetheless still want to one day go over all of the individuals who’ve supposedly been silenced by the Clinton’s. If I end up mysteriously dying around that time, you’ll know who did it.


#459: State Enforced Homosexuality This theory is almost exclusively pushed by extremely fundamentally religious people, though that doesn’t mean the two are tied together by the hip. It’s been claimed that the reason for the inclusion of main characters in film, literature, television shows, animation, and video games is because the New World Order is trying to brainwash children into becoming homosexual, bisexual, and transgender. While the percentage of humans that identify as any of those three is incredibly small (with over 97% of men and women identifying as heterosexual), some believe this number will continue to rise until most of the world are degenerate sodomites.


#460: Scientology Some believe that the controversial religion of Scientology is responsible for various murders, disappearances, fraudulent activities, fake medical practices, and even has a hand in bribing the FBI and government into not investigating its actions. Some also believe that the religion is benevolent and hasn’t done anything that it’s been accused of.


#461: John F. Kennedy is in a Coma According to some, President Kennedy didn’t die on that fateful day in 1963. Rather, he fell into a coma and now resides in a secret hospital room.


#462: Purple Spheres This story reminds me a lot of the Kentucky Meat Shower (and other peculiar tales like it). In the early 2010s, there were reports where strange, purple spheres have fallen in the Arizona desert and British gardens. Although news crews have done stories on these spheres—which were described as being like jellies—and they’ve been sent to labs for testing, no results have ever come back. This has led some to believe they’re extraterrestrial in origin, potentially egg sacs or waste of some sort.


#463: Stationary Earth Although the concept of the Sun revolving has been proven to be wrong for centuries, there are still some who believe it to be the indisputable truth.


#464: The 4chan Alien Photo There was a photo posted on the controversial image board that supposedly showed a Reptilian alien in the desert. Shortly after the picture was posted, the website went down and the thread wasn’t archived. Some suspect that the image was legitimate, but most believe it was fake.


#465: Mariana Trench Bone Pit It’s been claimed that there’s a large bone out at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. I’m going to hazard a guess and say that it’s where God buried Atlantis.


#466: George Soros To call Hungarian billionaire and philanthropist George Soros controversial would be like calling the universe kinda big. He’s the right-wing’s beall, end-all for everything wrong with the world (the left-wing equivalent would be the Koch brothers—or rather brother) and has been called an “agent of Satan” by Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban. It does bear mentioning that Soros does fund many left-wing movements and organizations (such as Black Lives Matter). He is an unabashed liberal after all. Where the theories come in is how much influence he has on the United States and the rest of the world. Some say that he’s the puppet master to the Democratic Party and every other left-wing party in the world. Some also believe he’s a puppet to the Rothschild family.


That’s the very, very barebones version to Soros by the way. If you want a more thorough explanation on who he is and why people hate him, I’d be here all week.


#467: Robert Mueller’s Investigation Around the time that Q began to post, some believed that Robert Mueller’s special council was secretly working with President Trump to investigate the Deep State, Hillary Clinton, and President Obama.


#468: Shadow Subway Supposedly, the Shadow Subway is one of two things. Either it’s a top secret interdimensional subway system or it’s a subway system that’s international. Whichever version you believe, it’s located below every major city on the planet.


#469: The Red Cross of America and Satanic Rituals The Red Cross of America has done a considerable amount of good, but some believe that that isn’t the case. Ignoring controversies that have surrounded it, some believe that they’re a Satanic organization and that any blood donations that receive are subsequently used in horrific, evil rituals.


#470: The 2000 Election Ever since Al Gore lost the state of Florida to George W. Bush by less than 1,000 votes, many Democrats have suspected that Roger Stone (who I must admit is likely to have done something just to spite his enemies) and other Republicans committed voter fraud to hand the presidency to Bush. No hard evidence has come of it close to two decades later though and it’s unlikely anything ever will. Yeah, sorry Al, but at least you went on to prove that Man-Bear-Pig is real.


#471: The Rothschild Family One of the wealthiest families on the entire planet, the Rothschild family is said to be the leaders of the Illuminati, New World Order, and every other possible society that desires a one world government. It’s said that they’ve funded both sides of every armed conflict in human history.


#472: Deep Ecology Fascism Fascism seems to be all the rage these days. Everywhere I look, I see the word thrown around like it’s candy; I barely have time to even get my groove on and try to act hip with the youngins! Ah well, maybe next time. Anyways, eco-fascism isn’t anything particularly new, though this one theory is quite peculiar. It claims there’s a branch of eco-buddhist-fascism (that’s quite an interesting combination if I do say so myself) that believes in a few things. Namely natural order, deterministic genetics, and Aryan spirituality. Supposedly, people like Miguel Serrano and  the Thule society are a part of it.


#473: The Bowling Green Massacre I’m sure most people who’ve followed Donald Trump’s rise as a billionaire and real estate mogul to the President of the United States remember this one. Kellyanne Conway mentioned in an interview something called the “Bowling Green Massacre”. No such massacre has ever occurred, but some truth seekers claimed to have remembered such an incident. As such, there are claims that the event was covered up or scrubbed from existence in order to make Trump and his team look like complete fools. This story is quite similar to the 2006 Volleyball Incident and both remain something of niche theories among those that believe there are mass shootings that are covered up by the government.


#474: Phantom Kangaroo There are claims of kangaroos outside of Australia. While nothing all that fantastical on its own, some say that these kangaroos are ghostly in appearance, abnormally large, or even carnivorous. Some have also claimed that they are connected to the Men in Black and Neo Dinosaurs.


#475: Plastic Surgery Runaways According to some truth seekers, there’s a very grisly end that happens to those who aren’t discovered after running away. It’s claimed that their body is harvested; their skin used for plastic surgeries.


#476: Vertical Universe Some believe that our universe is vertical in formation and doesn’t go horizontally. Up up and away!


#477: Eazy-E Was Murdered Although he was known as an extremely masculine man, rapper Eazy-E lost his life to AIDS. Due to what some saw (and in the case of some, still see) as an odd contrast to his persona, there’s a belief that Eazy was shot with bullets laced with blood that had the AIDS virus. Others claim that he was injected with it. The two most commonly accused of killing him are fellow rappers Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.


#478: Organic Robotoids Well, I did say earlier that the Cold War was more of a battle of technological advancement. This one definitely fits that concept.


First claimed by a radio host named Peter Beter, this theory posits that the Soviet Union created synthetic humans. It’s likely that, if this was the case, it was done to assist farmers and other labor intensive jobs. However, no proof of this has ever come forward and I don’t know any truth seekers who’ve ever claimed such a theory. Still, the Soviets were nothing if not fantastic at wasting money.


#479: Kek There’s a theory that’s circulated among many, many of President Trump’s supporters that the Egyptian God of Chaos, Kek, was the reason that Trump won the 2016 election (hence why you see so many of them say “praise kek”). One of the biggest pieces of evidence for this is that there’s an Egyptian hieroglyph that supposedly shows a frog and a computer. While most treat this theory as a joke, some of the more hardcore truth seekers genuinely believe that Kek willed Trump into the presidency.


#480: Pedowood This is a nickname given to Tinseltown itself, Hollywood, and is often connected to the Jewish control theory (usually due to the claim that they want to normalize/legalize pedophilia). I digress. If I’m to be perfectly honest, this theory isn’t that far-fetched to me. Between the accusations that came out because of the fallout from the Weinstein scandal and the plethora of open secrets. These include:


-  The accusations that surround Bryan Singer. He’s been accused of molesting numerous underaged boys. It’s also claimed he’d be late to the set of X-Men: Apocalypse to the point that Matthew Vaughn had to film portions. Simon Kinberg is also rumored to have assisted in directing it (along with Fant4stic). He was also fired from Bohemian Rhapsody due to being late (which some suspect was due to his fear of being confronted about the accusations).


- There are an absurd number of accusations against so-called comedian Andy Dick. So much so that it’s apparently an unspoken rule to never be alone with him if you’re on set with him.


- Jared Leto, the lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars and an actor with a pension for being a “method” actor, has been accused of soliciting sex from underage fans.


Those are three rumors I’ve heard/read about. Does that equate to Hollywood being infested with pedophiles? Well, in the eyes of some, yes. To others, no. Those that do believe it are adamant that the pedophilia problem runs significantly deeper than anyone would like to even think about (some claim that it was connected to Jeffrey Epstein and that every actor, actress, director, producer, and screenwriter is in on it) and also suspect that Hollywood is full of Satanists.


#481: Nephilim Some suspect that the existence of the Nephilim is being covered-up as it would prove religion to be factual. As for what the Nephilim are (or were), here’s a bit from the Book of Genesis.


4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.


5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.


6 The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.


They were the offspring of the sons of God and the daughters of men. Some suspect they were giants.


#482: The Tunguska Event I discussed this last month. The idea is that a UFO crashed on Tunguska and the Soviets covered it up. They either reverse engineered the technology or attempted to do so and failed. Others claim that Nikola Tesla’s death day was what caused it.


#483: Nikola Tesla Speaking of Tesla, there are extremely persistent theories that claim he invented a death ray, an electric car, and even a time machine. However, all were suppressed and covered up.


#484: Dolphins Are Smarter Than We Think This isn’t too far-fetched given we’ve underestimated the intelligence of certain animals before. Though it also ties into the “Greys are aliens” theory a bit. The idea is that dolphins are extraordinarily intelligent and may be capable of much more than we think and could eventually evolve in a manner similar to how we humans did. As a brief side note: I also believe there are some theories that mermaids and mermen could be evolved dolphins. Don’t quote me on that though.


#485: The Third World War Happened in 1995 Author J.G. Ballard claims that World War III occurred in January of 1995, though it ended mere minutes later. Here’s the full quote from him below:


“Now that World War 3 has safely ended, I feel free to comment on two remarkable aspects of the whole terrifying affair. The first is that this longdreaded nuclear confrontation, which was widely expected to erase all life from our planet, in fact lasted barely four minutes. This will surprise many of those reading the present document, but World War 3 took place on 27 January 1995, between 6:47 and 6:51 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The entire duration of hostilities, from President Reagan’s formal declaration of war, to the launch of five sea-based nuclear missiles (three American and two Russian), to the first peace-feelers and the armistice agreed by the President and Mr Gorbachev, lasted no more than 245 seconds. World War 3 was over almost before anyone realised that it had begun.


The other extraordinary feature of World War 3 is that I am virtually the only person to know that it ever occurred. It may seem strange that a suburban paediatrician living in Arlington, a few miles west of Washington DC, should alone be aware of this unique historical event. After all, the news of every downward step in the deepening political crisis, the ailing President’s declaration of war and the following nuclear exchange, was openly broadcast on nationwide television. World War 3 was not a secret, but people’s minds were addressed to more important matters. In their obsessive concern for the health of their political leadership, they were miraculously able to ignore a far greater threat to their own well-being.


Of course, strictly speaking, I was not the only person to have witnessed World War 3. A small number of senior military personnel in the Nato and Warsaw Pact high commands, as well as President Reagan, Mr Gorbachev and their aides, and the submarine officers who decrypted the nuclear launch codes and sent the missiles on their way (into unpopulated areas of Alaska and eastern Siberia), were well aware that war had been declared, and a ceasefire agreed four minutes later. But I have yet to meet a member of the ordinary public who has heard of World War 3. Whenever I refer to the war, people stare at me with incredulity. Several parents have withdrawn their children from the paediatric clinic, obviously concerned for my mental stability. Only yesterday one mother to whom I casually mentioned the war later telephoned my wife to express her anxieties. But Susan, like everyone else, has forgotten the war, even though I have played video-recordings to her of the ABC, NBC and CNN newscasts on 27 January which actually announce that World War 3 has begun.


This came from a Tumblr blog which you can read here. While the blog says it wasn’t from anything nonfiction, some believe that it truly did happen and that we’re now waiting on World War IV.


#486: The Glass Camera This one ties into Richard Golf, who I talked about in Golf Rumors—both in the December write-up and way above. Given that I’ve already written about this though, I’ll just use the portion of the Golf Rumors entry to save time (and because I don’t think I can do any better than what I did).


Now then, the Glass Camera was supposedly a joint project carried out by the CIA and FBI during the 1990s. The intention was to make completely undetectable surveillance tools that had both a camera and a microphone. This should, in our current understanding of physics, be impossible (side note: that isn’t me saying it, it’s the 4chan post; click here if you want proof since I know precisely nothing about physics). Should the so-called Glass Camera be possible, you would need something that could absorb the light to record it and make said absorption of light to make it visible.


Apparently undeterred by these impossibilities, the CIA utilized their knowledge of remote viewing and physical projection to, “train humans to not only remotely perceive a subject, but also project this information to a camera with the person to create an objective recording of the event”. However, this projection—this camera—doesn’t simply record something. Rather, it’s an “integral part of the viewing technique” which, “allows the viewer to channel their focus and view images to a much greater degree than through traditional remote viewing means”.


This incredible feat came with a price however. According to the poster, the sheer psychic energy that was required to achieve this monumental goal put an incredible amount of strain on the viewer’s body. This, in turn, almost always resulted in death after “chronic viewing experience”. Not only did the viewer end up dying though, but remote viewing of whatever was projected was known to cause “increasing mental degradation” along with dissociative disorders in the viewer. As such, it’s believed that those who were involved in the Glass Camera operations were in reality abducted by the CIA and forced to be participants. That, or they were lied to about what the true nature of the operation was—or had the risks downplayed heavily.


One of these suspected victims was a man by the name of Robert Golf. Described as a somewhat prominent psychic from the 1980s, Golf allegedly disappeared overnight and despite his supposed prominence, there’s no trace of him in any books and there are no records of him today. Because of this, rumors and speculation as to Golf’s ultimate fate sprang out; one of the most popular ones being that he was abducted by the US government and forced to partake in their various psyops—one of which was Glass Camera.


#487: The Gateway to Hell Reportedly, there are gateways to Hell scattered around the world that one can access with remarkable ease. However, no such gateways have ever been found and while some insist they exist, it’s generally accepted that God changed the locks on so nobody would waltz into Hell when drunk.


#488: God is a Dragon Speaking of God, this one I was tempted to not include because, like a few others, it’s that goofy. However, after contemplating it, I decided that it’s yet another one that is way too good to pass up. The story goes that there was a user on a forum dedicated to mysteries named Draconic Chronicler. He was an ardent believer in a reality that was centered around dragons. He was adamant about it; he was certain of it. Though maybe a bit too certain. Supposedly, Draconic would post lengthy write-ups that outlined how the Bible was in fact a history book about dragons and that God was a dragon. It’s also said that he went to the now defunct IMDb forums for every single film related to (or centered on) dragons. It’s there that he would lambaste the films for being “unrealistic” and misrepresenting how dragons acted or looked.


#489: Sabinche Tomatovic Tape Oh my goodness. When I first read this theory, I could feel my skin crawl like there were a thousand millipedes all over my body. The idea goes that there was a video uploaded to the Internet in its early days. In it, an Australian-Serbian porn star was having sexual intercourse with a giant spider. This encounter reportedly catapulted her to fame within Japan’s Genki-Genki circle. However, the video—while many claim to have viewed it—has since been supposedly lost or purged, though legend has it that the giant arachnid was a J’ba Fofi.


On one final note: Sabinche Tomatovic translates to “Tomato Sandwich”. Because of this, I like to imagine that this was all an elaborate advertisement by Subway 


#490: The Original “Bugsy” There’s a rumor, legend, myth, and conspiracy that surrounds Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegal. Allegedly, he was a shapeshifter who took on the guise of Siegal and then committed the various heinous crimes in his name. While this is likely nothing more than an urban legend that spawned from how notoriously violent and cruel he was (there’s even a claim that Siegal was Lucifer and attempting to get people to sin), there are some who still believe that the infamous mobster was a shapeshifter.


#491: The Anthrax Murders A week after the September 11th attacks, several letters.were sent to various news outlets that contained Anthrax. Some suspect this was also an inside job. Many also believe that the FBI, which was headed by Robert Mueller, handled the case extremely poorly and had no regard for the personal liberties of their primary suspect.


#492: Television Was Created to Distract the Public While this theory sure holds little water today (unless we change it to “smart phones”), there is a theory that the television was created to distract all of us from the goings-on with the Shadow Government and Deep State.


#493: Numbers Stations These things have been around for quite some time. They’re usually used for espionage, but some people use them for ARGs 


Sometime around 2017, there were reports of numbers stations playing throughout North America and Europe. These stations soon became accessible via platforms like SoundCloud. Some speculate this is because there are much more complex messages that are required to be decoded by playing multiple recordings at the same time. Skeptics believe it may just be pranksters or that loons are connecting dots where there are none.


#494: Osiris is in Iraq Hey, remember that theory about how Saddam Hussein had a stargate? Of course you do. Well, this is why he had it and this is why we went to Iraq. It wasn’t oil or anything like that. Rather, it was because Saddam wanted to use the stargate in order to awaken the Egyptian God of Death, Osiris. Once he was awakened, he would presumably command Osiris to conquer the Middle East. As such, the US invasion was justified due to this horrific plot by Saddam. Due to the overthrowing of the Iraqi dictator (and likely the confiscation of the stargate), we can rest easy knowing that Osiris won’t awaken and destroy us all.


#495: James A. Garfield’s Final Letter It’s claimed that President James A. Garfield wrote a letter to his son shortly before his death. In it, he supposedly wrote about Satanic activity. The letter was subsequently burned.


#496: The Lost Watergate Tape It’s thought that one of the tapes related to the Watergate scandal went missing. Some believe it may have exonerated President Nixon of any wrongdoing and blown the whistle on the existence of the Deep State.


#497: John Wick is Based on a True Story Every now and then, there comes a theory that’s so peculiar that I’m enraptured by it. This is one of them, though I must admit, I have no idea if it’s 100% serious or if it’s a joke. Either way, it’s really unique. The idea is that Keanu Reeves’ career was killed after The Matrix (which isn’t necessarily true, he starred in plenty of films after it, but they weren’t smash hits) due to the nature and commentary of the film angering the Illuminati/New World Order. Meanwhile, the Wachowski’s became transgender (presumably after either being forced or through various chemicals/toxins being used to reduce their testosterone). Reeves’ fiance and unborn child were also murdered by the Illuminati.


However, over a decade after that, Reeves starred in John Wick, which revived his career. To some, the film has a subtext: it’s about Reeves escaping the Illuminati and not becoming another puppet to them. Presumably, Wick’s wife dying of cancer represents Reeves’ real life wife being murdered, the puppy representing his unborn child, and the car being stolen representing how both of them died. That’s just my “educated” guess though.


#498: 1784 Satan Encounter This story takes us back to the 1700s. Our focus is a French philosopher, art critic, writer, and prominent figure during the time of Enlightenment by the name of Denis Diderot. According to Wikipedia (which I am very much aware isn’t the most reputable place to get information, but let’s just go with it), he was the co-founder, chief editor, and contributor to the Encyclopédie along with Jean le Rond d'Alembert. That, remarkably, isn’t why he has a conspiracy that surrounds him. In fact, of all the conspiracies on this megalist, his isn’t one that is necessarily malicious in nature. It didn’t hurt anyone other than himself. Once again, according to Wikipedia, Diderot wrote plays, which is where most of his fame comes from. However, his reputation may have a darker origin.


There are claims that the reason for Diderot’s fame is due to him having made a pact—or some may even say conspired—with Satan. The deal was that, in exchange for Diderot’s name and work becoming widely recognized and popular, he would be sent directly to Hell. This pact was made in 1784 and almost immediately after it the bargain was finalized, Diderot died. Is this what really happened? Well, there have been numerous claims that those who are famous or at least in the public eye made deals with the devil to become famous. It’s up to you to decide if this is really the case or not.


#499: God’s A Collective Manifestation of our Belief in Him There some who claim something different. That version is that God is a collective delusion that has been created by humanity; a sort of manifestation of the desire for there to be a higher power in this world. As such, God was sort of willed into existence by this collective belief. Through this, God now believes himself to be a real entity and the day that he realizes he isn’t, the universe will cease to exist.


If you’re religious, this theory is likely the ultimate horror story for you. Though it may also seem quite ridiculous.


#500: The Final Understanding It’s believed that only when someone uncovers the truth to life’s greatest mysteries will they find discover what the final understanding is.


Conclusion


There you have it. An introduction to the world of conspiracy theories. I know that some were likely biased or nowhere near as informative as they could be, but I ultimately wished for a mere introduction and summarization. If I failed at that, do let me know so I can work on improving that. The same goes for any and all information I may have gotten wrong. Do let me know and I will correct it the moment I see the comment.


Now as for those who may be upset by me not taking a side on certain things (such as the highly volatile “Jewish Question”), I’d like to stress that this blog isn’t a place for me to accuse any one person or group of such crimes. While I’m anything but perfect and have made numerous mistakes in my life (along with having gone against my own beliefs and stances; Heaven knows there are plenty of people who’ve known me that could write a book on my faults), I don’t want to take a stance like that, even if it means denouncing such an ideology. Am I a Neo-Nazi? Absolutely not. Do I like Nazism? Again, absolutely not. However, I don’t believe that I should need to turn my write-ups into a soapbox session to denounce Nazism when I write about something—even if I’m not fond of the ideology or hold nothing but disdain for it.


As such, I’d like to say that, if you’re upset by me not taking the time during this entry to lambasted or praise the Holocaust or to “name the Jew”, I’d like to politely ask that you refrain from leaving a volatile thesis labeling me a race traitor or an antisemite. At the end of the day, I just want to write and share some interesting and peculiar things with you all.


Now that I’m done inviting everyone to more or less crucify me, please leave a comment below telling me what you thought of this megalist. It’d mean a lot to me. Should reception be warm enough. I may do a similar megalist on cryptids or unmade games, movies, and other pieces of entertainment.

    The Trump Tower is solid gold... chocolate. There, snarky remark made. Now Vert, two things. One, take a month long break. Two. You almost didn't get a snarky remark as this nearly melted my brain from the stupid.

  2. This is great, thanks for compiling it. I would love to see some of these theories used as the basis for a short horror story or movie. Most of these are really interesting and creative in their thinking of the world and how it works. I mean, "Ghosts are biological beings"? that's awesome

    1. Hey, thanks for reading! I greatly appreciate it.


      I honestly never thought about the original fiction angle, but I agree that it'd be fascinating to see. I'd personally love to see the Akashic Records turned into a story.

      By the way: if you liked this list, I'll likely be doing one on Cryptids sometime in the very near future. How long it'll be will depend on my willpower; I'm a very lazy wrote! :P
