Top Five Conspiracy Theories

An oldie but a goldie...for new readers!

September 11 was orchestrated by the U. S. government

• A number of urban myths, alternative hypotheses and conspiracy theories have been formulated to explain the events of September 11th:
• The U.S., Israel or Iraq government orchestrated the attacks themselves.
• The Twin Towers fell straight down, at close to free-fall speed. This is a similar characteristic of a controlled demolition. The dust cloud and its make up are considered un-characteristic of a gravity-driven collapse.
• It is often pointed out that no steel building before or since the 9-11 attack has collapsed as the result of fire.
• The rubble of the Twin Towers smoldered for weeks after the collapse. This claim is meant to point out that steel could only have smoldered as a result of pre-placed explosives.
• Some consider photographic evidence of the plane lying on the grounds of the Pentagon to be ambiguous and unconvincing, citing a visual lack of burnt metal, human remains, passenger's luggage or seats.
• The Pentagon was struck in a newly renovated, reinforced section. Some speculate this location, the west side of the complex, to be indicative of government involvement, noting it as an attempt to reduce casualties.
• Flight 77 was able to fly in the direction of the DC and Pentagon area for approximately 40 minutes without interception. This is thought to be unusual given the Pentagon's close proximity to Andrews Air Force Base.
• There are claims that anti-missile batteries at the Pentagon should have intercepted Flight 77.
• The FBI confiscated a video, which may have captured the impact, from a nearby gas station attended by Jose Velasquez. This video has not yet been released.

Barcodes are really intended to Control people

Some conspiracy theorists have proposed that barcodes are really intended to serve as means of control by a putative world government, or that they are Satanic in intent.

Mary Stewart Relfe claims in "The New Money System 666" that barcodes secretly encode the number 666 - the Biblical "Number of the Beast".

This theory has been adopted by other fringe figures such as the "oracle" Sollog, who refuses to label any of his books with barcodes on the grounds that "any type of computer numbering systems MANDATED by any government or business is part of the PROPHECY of the BEAST controlling you."

The Truth is out there, on Area 51

• The secretive nature of Area 51 and undoubted connection to classified aircraft research, together with reports of unusual phenomena, have led Area 51 to become a centerpiece of modern UFO and conspiracy theory folklore. Some of the unconventional activities claimed to be underway at Area 51 include:
• The storage, examination, and reverse engineering of crashed alien spacecraft (including material supposedly recovered at Roswell), the study of their occupants (living and dead), and the manufacture of aircraft based on alien technology.
• Meetings or joint undertakings with extraterrestrials.
• The development of exotic energy weapons (for SDI applications or otherwise) or means of weather control.
• Activities related to a supposed shadowy world government.

Apollo 11 Moon Landings were faked by NASA

Proponents of the Apollo moon landing hoax accusations allege that the Apollo Moon Landings never took place, and were faked by NASA with possible CIA support. Enthusiasts of this theory claim that:
• The astronauts could not have survived the trip because of exposure to radiation
• The photos were altered: the Crosshairs on some photos appear to be behind objects, rather than in front of them where they should be
• The quality of the photographs is implausibly high.
• There are no stars in any of the photos, and astronauts never report seeing any stars from the capsule windows.
• Identical backgrounds in photos that are listed as taken miles apart.
• The moon's surface during the daytime is so hot that camera film would have melted.
• No blast crater appeared from the landing
• The launch rocket produced no visible flame.
• The flag placed on the surface by the astronauts flapped despite there being no wind on the Moon.

Kentucky Fried Chicken makes black men impotent

It is sometimes claimed that the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise is owned by the Ku Klux Klan, and the chicken is laced with a drug that makes only black men impotent.

Sadly this is the wackiest of them all.

Some conspiracies are fact not theory. It always hepls to associate these conspiracies with other ones that are fiction, exactly like you just did.

You cannot after watching this video claim to still belief the official version, unless you have a dog in the fight.

While you are contemplating this crap, the real enemy is sitting laughing at you, the sheeple. They already have won the next world war while they are sitting comfortably in their lairs waiting to become rulers of the conquered world.

Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September 11th, Malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists themselves.

Correction New World Order scams:
Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories by the USA government concerning the attacks of September 11th, Malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from President George Walker Bush, the Zionist Chabad Jews, The Round Table, United Nations and New World Order themselves.

I don't know why I let that one through, but there you go.

"The One World Government is all planned for 2012_12_21"

And yet, somehow, you are privy to this information?

I'm not personally dubious about some New World Order, I just don't happen to think it's one thing, like a secretive group of people. Like "Zionists" who, simultaneously, want to establish the state of Israel AND take over the world.

It's a bit like how I feel about Satan: I believe in evil, and evil forces, but not necessarily that it's one guy with a pointy tail.

A conspiracy theorist is someone who MIGHT be right - but their rightness is not based on any actual information, just coincidence.

Move the United Nations together with the Round Table Occult to ISRAEL.
This very same United Nations, Round Table Occult DESTROYED SOUTH AFRICA.
The UN is a communist organization.

I agree with Alex Jones.
The UN should be kicked out of the US and its funding cut off IMMEDIATELY.
Send the United Nations to Israel.
Do we really need the UN or other international organizations? A growing number of Americans are increasingly frustrated with international groups like the UN, IMF and World Bank. Many people are calling for the dismantling of all three organizations, including Alex Jones. He says that the United Nations is purely an evil, corrupt and wicked organization.
We also totally reject their latest SCAM Carbon Tax, Man Made Global Warming rip off.

We all must very actively push for this Communist organization the United Nations to be moved out of the United States of America.
Move the UN together with the Round Table Occult to ISRAEL.

We do NOT want their NEW WORLD ORDER

Well well well, seems President Ahmadinejad of Iran also smells a rat concerning 9/11. LOL.
What I loved about his UN disclosure was the way that bastion of democracy and fee speech, the USA, walked out of the hall when he made his pronouncement.
I truly love that guy. Never afraid to call a spade a shovel.

Exzanian said...

Ahmadinejad is a twat and a deluded one at that...

Whatever you call the Iranian President, Exzanian, doesn't change the fact that he (and Piet) are both intelligent enough to see how things work!
