A blogger created a beautiful list of 27 totally absurd conspiracy theories. Obviously, these theories are pointless, but quite fun to read. 🙂
These are my favorites:
- WWII was staged. It never really happened. The Illuminati employed elaborate special effects, stage magic, and phony journalism to scare the world into pacifism.
- Hitler and some associates escaped to the Arctic in a submarine, to live with super-advanced aliens who reside within the hollow earth.
- The early Middle Ages […] never occurred. Everything that supposedly happened during those years was either a misunderstanding, an event from a different era, or an outright lie […]. And we are actually living in the 1700s.
- Stephen King killed John Lennon.
The original article also contains some information about the origins of the theories.
