The World’s Weirdest/Stupidest Conspiracy Theories

(in no particular order, with each theory’s author or main proponent in parentheses, if known)

  • The driver shot JFK. (the late William Cooper)
  • The Beatles were designed and sent to the U.S. by the British Psychological Warfare Division, to undermine the morals of American teenagers. (Lyndon LaRouche)
  • Christ’s Crucifixion was staged. (Hugh Schonfield) Christ eloped with Mary Magdalene, and one or both of them fled to France to raise their family. (Baigent/Leigh/Lincoln)
  • Christ and his disciples were a magic-mushroom cult. (Dead Sea Scrolls scholar John Allegro)
  • HIV/AIDS was created in a lab.
  • HIV does not cause AIDS.
  • Man never landed on the moon. It’s not even possible. But there is an alien base there. (see Wikipedia; for an artful and very funny parody of how these theories can be patched together from unrelated material, watch the mockumentary Dark Side of the Moon)
  • The Zapruder film is entirely fake, even though it contradicts the findings of the Warren Commission. (Jim Fetzer)
  • Stephen King killed John Lennon. (Steve Lightfoot)
  • WWII was staged. It never really happened. The Illuminati employed elaborate special effects, stage magic, and phony journalism to scare the world into pacifism. (Donald Holmes)
  • Queen Elizabeth I was a man. The real Elizabeth died as a child.
  • George H.W. Bush was really George Scherff Sr., a Nazi sent to destroy America as a teenager and adopted by Prescott Bush (Scherff was also an assistant to Nikola Tesla, and stole all Tesla’s inventions after he was murdered by Otto Skorzeny and Reinhard Gehlen). Hitler was still alive in Montana in 1997, and Josef Mengele is keeping himself alive and youthful with a regimen of hormones and cannibalism. Oh, and Curious George was inspired by a young George Scherff Jr.; that’s probably why Alan J. Shalleck was murdered by two men he met through a gay sex network one day before the movie premiered. (this information comes from a man named Eric Berman, who claims he heard it straight from his girlfriend’s dad, Otto Skorzeny, in Florida during the late ’90s. Skorzeny died in Madrid in 1975.)
  • One promoter of the Scherff-Bush story adds that Josef Mengele was the real Zodiac, the Boston Strangler(s), and the anthrax letter mailer. (http://www.thebushconnection.com/)
  • The 1939 War of the Worlds radio broadcoast was a psychological warfare study funded by C.D. Jackson on behalf of the Rockefeller Foundation, designed to find out how Americans would react to an enemy invasion. Funny… in a trailer for his mockumentary F is for Fake, Orson Welles did say the WoW broadcast had “secret sponsors”. (Daniel Hopsicker)
  • A really old one that just won’t die: Jews drink the blood and eat the flesh of Gentile children during Passover. Some Catholics still revere the relics of Medieval child saints supposedly slaughtered and devoured by Jews.
  • The doomed Franklin Expedition was sent to the Arctic not only to find the Northwest Passage, but to secretly investigate UFO sightings that had been reported since the 1700s. The men were captured, experimented upon, and eaten by giant aliens. (Jeffrey Blair Latta)
  • Hitler and some associates escaped to the Arctic in a submarine, to live with super-advanced aliens who reside within the hollow earth. (This story originated with Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s novel The Coming Race, was treated as fact by the pre-Nazi Vril Society, was bolstered by the forged “secret diary” of Admiral Byrd, and was adopted by the likes of Ernst Zundel)
  • Denver International Airport was built expressly to conceal a vast underground complex, headquarters of the New World Order elite. Clues are hidden in the airport’s peace-themed mural.
  • Scientology: Billions of years ago the intergalactic overlord Xenu used a film to brainwash our souls (“Thetans”) into believing in the world’s major religions, which he invented.
  • Gnosticism: The entire material world is an evil trap created by the imposter God of the Bible.
  • Nation of Islam: White people were created in a lab.
  • Jesuits sank the Titanic to kill some of the world’s richest, most powerful Jews.
  • The early Middle Ages (614-911 A.D.) never occurred. Everything that supposedly happened during those years was either a misunderstanding, an event from a different era, or an outright lie – Charlemagne, for instance, is a fictional figure. And we are actually living in the 1700s. (Herbert Illig’s phantom time hypothesis)
  • Shortly before he left office, Bill Clinton secretly signed into law the National Economic Security and Reformation Act (NESARA). This act would have completely restructured the U.S. government by – among other things – forgiving all personal credit card debt and mortgages, abolishing the IRS, restoring constitutional law, and somehow ensuring world peace – but the Supreme Court placed a gag order on it, and threatened death to any government official who breathed word of its existence. NESARA activists around the world are agitating to get the act announced and instituted.
  • Aspartame, flouride, genetically modified foods, and vaccines are used specifically to keep us sick and open to suggestion, and/or as part of a secret depopulation plan designed by the world’s elite.
  • Atlanta child murder theories: Victims were used for CDC research into Interferon; KKK Klansmen posed as cops to wipe out young black men (Dick Gregory); white scientists needed the boys’ foreskins to produce a cure for cancer and/or a youth serum. (Dick Gregory again)
  • Jeffrey Dahmer was an actor hired by the Ambrosia Chocolate company to pose as a cannibal killer so no one would object to the factory being torn down and another one built with illegal tax breaks (posted by “manoftruth” on online forums devoted to Rush and Bon Jovi, along with rants on Wicca and Jews; his name might be Mark Zahn, but who knows?).

And here’s a fun one: By combining two separate conspiracy theories, you can turn Hitler into Jack the Ripper!
Theory #1: Prince Eddy, Duke of Clarence, faked his death to move to Germany and become Adolph Hitler.
Theory #2: Prince Eddy, Duke of Clarence (and/or Freemasons acting on his behalf) was Jack the Ripper.
Hence, Prince Eddy might have killed several prostitues, faked his own death, then resurfaced in Austria as Hitler.

  1. I got to this blog by googling ‘Worlds Stupidest Conspiracy Theories’. How did all you believers end up here? Googling for material to use on drunk girls in bars to make yourself seem “intellectual”?I have a questions – how many big world-wide conspiracies have been exposed and the truth admitted by the conspirators before? Of these probably non-existant exposes, how many do you think were uncovered by a conspiracy theorist with wads of websites to back him up? Or how many world-killing conspiracies have you secretly thwarted? Do we owe out lives to you truthers? Please, I really do wish to know what you achieve exactly.In science, sometimes they do these things called experiments. Lots of times scientists theorise something will happen as a result of the experiment but something different actually happens. Usually they say ‘Wow! How did that happen!’ and then they discover there was a factor they hadnt thought of before and couldnt have known about because it was the first time this experiment had ever happened. Like big planes crashing deliberately into skyscrapers to make them fall down. MADNESS!

  2. i think the problem with all of these ‘conspiracy theories’ is the fact that we all have free will, we all have the choice between right and wrong, true or false.i doubt we will ever know whats true and whats not to be quite honest i think we’re all plotting against eachother with the amount of free will and opinions in the world today – surely freewill and opinion is the foot of all evil?i believe this is all a part of fate and we are going to come to some sort of tragic end because of how evil we are. this wont make sense to the naive people out there but just think about this one guys. – oh and before i go; we dont even know who these people are posting these things on this forum/blog..it could be ANYONe and by that i hope you all know what i mean.GEORGE BUSH IF YOUR READING I THINK YOUR A CUNT, MY SISTER COULD RUN THE COUNTRY BETTER AND SHES 4 AND A HALF. YOU HAVE THE BRAIN SPAN OF A FISH.OH AND ANY OTHER SECRET AGENTS READING, YOU ARE ALSO CUNTS.good day.

  3. Heh heh, I like anon’s “freewill and opinion is the foot of all evil”. I think I’ll put that in a “strangest comment quotes” post someday.Personally, I believe that selfishness and deep-fried vegetables are the root of all evil.

  4. That fellow is not actually an architect in any accepted sense of the word, and as an alleged short-term underling to one of the principal designers, I question if he would actually have been privy to sensitive information of any kind. Even my Truther spouse found the interview highly suspect and of no value to his cause.

  5. “* The twin towers were SPECIFICALLY designed to withstand air crashes”- No, the design was checked with the abilities they had in the 1960’s to see if it would and they believed that the buildings were able too. They were right, the buildings DID withstand the crash; it was continuing damage from the fires that took them down.”* WTC7 fell into its exact footprint due to a small fire “- Not True, the collapse of WTC 7 damaged several nearby buildings, several bad enough that they have had to be, or are scheduled to be demolished. The fires according to the FDNY were not small but the largest office fire they had ever seen. It was described as multiple 6-alarm fires and the building being fully involved. Were the FDNY Firemen lying?”* Never in the history of the world has a pancake collapse sped up, a 100floor+ building such as the twin towers would have a calculated pancake collapse time of over 1 min 30. The twin towers fell in 9 and 11 seconds, which is easier/quicker walking through a closed door, or one that is open, ie the floor below must have completely disintigrated before the one above even touched it”- Incorrect. The collapses took 16-18 and 18-20 sec. Don’t believe me, get a stop watch and time a video of them. NIST put the first panels hitting the ground at 10 sec for WTC 2 and 11 for WTC 1, and the rest of the collapse is still far above them at that time. Also ALL pancake collapses speed up as they happen, this is called physics. If the momentum is high enough for the energy to destroy the floor the building top impacts, then it is still moving after impact. The acceleration from gravity will then mean when it connects the next floor it will be moving faster than the previous. Thus the collapse MUST accelerate.”* The hole in the pentagon did not have any marks where the wings would have hit, only a hole 16m in diameter.”Incorrect, the damage from the wings is quite obvious in the images and the entire hole in the ground floor was much wider.”* The FBI have a tap showing something hit the pentagon, yet they only release 3 frames of it, none of which clearly show a plane, why dont they show the world the tape…if they have nothing to hide”The Plane was moving around 400-500mph, it was only on 3 frames. Also the FBI didn’t release it (the first leak was from the lawyers of the Victims’ Families, and the second release was through the DoJ.) One of the Frames shows the plane itself, but due to resolution, focus, and the planes colour scheme it is admittedly hard to see.”* You can see squibs (explosions used to demolish buildings) coming out of the side of WTC 1 and 2″Incorrect. Firstly squibs are small firecrackers, not demolition charges. Secondly, the puffs of smoke and dust are flows, they speed up as the collapse gets closer. Explosions seen in CD result in fast ejections of smoke and debris that then slows. What is seen in the WTC collapse is totally the opposite of what would be see in an explosion.”* The sniffer dogs used to detect bombs were removed a week before 9/11″- Incorrect. The WTC was on heightened alert against a possible attack until the Friday before the attacks. As a result they had EXTRA security. The threat level was lowered and the extra security ended, but sniffer dogs and normal levels of security remained. One such dog is known to have died in the attacks.”* The entire security system in WTC 1 and 2 were occasionally down in the weeks leading up to 9/11, meaning in those times there would be no CCTV”- There has never been any evidence provided to substantiate that this claim is true. Claims of power downs have been conclusively shown to be untrue by the production of tickets to the skydecks and photos of the lit up towers during the supposed power down time.”* WTC 7 was the first steel frame buildings in the history of the world to collapse due to fire alone, a building in madrid burned for 24 hours at 1000 degrees c, and yet did not collapse”Incorrect. The Kader Toy factory was a steel framed building that collapsed due to fire alone. The Windsor Tower in Madrid was far smaller than the WTC, about the size of the core alone, and it had a concrete core. The outer steel shell of the Windsor Tower DID collapse!”* The empire state building was hit by a bomber in ww2 that was lost in the fog, it still stands today”The Empire State building is a classic column and beam structure, not open plan truss and tube like the WTC was, and it was hit by a slow moving B-27, a far smaller plane. It still suffered extensive fires and damage though.”* Demolishion experts cut vertical columnes at 45 degrees, some pictures of the site after 9/11 show steel columns cut to exactly 45 degrees.”- And other pictures show the clean up crews cutting those steel columns at 45 degree angles with torches and thermic lances. The steel on the cut beams bear the striation marks of being cut by the clean up crews.”Now thats quite a lot of evidence if you ask me”- No, it’s a lot of hockey and garbage dredged up by someone that only reads the conspiracy sites and has no idea what they are talking about.

  6. If you think about it really carefully, there are no conspiracy theories… And all you people are disccusing and arguing over (@Matthew), is a matter of opinion and influenced views.Think about it. How do you believe a conspiracy theory started? It was either the “Goverenment” telling the truth to someone who would spread that truth to the world. Or, more likely, It was someone who saw what happened, and thought “but what if that never happened.” And then he would spread THAT OPINION to the world. Conspiracies are views. Views and Opinions. Nothing more, Nothing Less. This is my opinion, and I believe it is a fairly good one at that.But Once again, To all of you. I don’t mean to cause another Internet Argument or anything, at the end of the day, you believe what you want to. Infact…There is only one conspiracy/opinion that i am interested into at the moment. That is the Mary Magdelin and Jesus Christ Conspiracy. This I am looking into alot more than anything else because this is not something that, (lets put 9/11 into context) can just shake the foundation of america if it really is a hoax. But if it is a hoax, This Christ Conspiracy could break down the entire world, and can cause either choatic confusion, or greater good to all the known religions in the world.People believe what they want to. And all i ask, Is that every post after this.. what you believe about different conspiracies. Not why… Don’t explain why you think what you do. Just say What the event ion history is and what you think of it. I’ll start..9/11 = HoaxChrist = Definate Hoax, worth looking into.I can name a few others but you get my drift. So please, don’t dispute on what i have said today, this is just my opinion, and if someone thinks “We don’t want to hear someones opinion” then… if you think hard about it.. you have done.. by listening to the “Conspiracies” over the internet. :DThank you for listening and please, put down what you think of the conspiracies.. not why you think that.Thanks again :)Steven W.

  7. I like how the 9/11 truthers have responded to matthew getting fed up with holding a debate on the comments thread with half a dozen anonymous posters under the same name – gets declared as “defeated” when offering to hold a consistent email discussion.Claim: Kerosine doesn’t burn hot enough to melt steel.Fact: Correctomondo.Assumption: The steel needed to melt to be structurally weakened.Fact: Wrong.———Claim: the WTC collapsed by thermite, straight down into itself as like a controlled demolition.The obvious:http://media.popularmechanics.com/images/911-south-tower-collapse.jpgThe thermite would have to be placed exactly where the collapse is seen here starting, exactly where the plane is going to crash.But what about all the eye-witnesses that saw/heard/felt thermite on the ground floor? Buy one get one free? Bargain.Here comes the deluge of insults. Get the popcorn ready.

  8. I used to believe in conspiracy theories, I bought into the David icke, William cooper bullshit. I realized that most of these conspiracies are just too far fetched to be believed. It all comes down to selling books, dvd’s, and tickets to presentations by these people claiming to have uncovered some kind of hidden truth.David icke charges about 45 euros a pop to hear him speak about reptillian humanoids that run earth, and how the elite want to implant RFID chips to control humans. Yeah if he cared about our well being he would give it away for free.I got tired of waiting for certain events to take place, the end of the world, the new world order, the amero, the RFID chips, and blah blah blah. Conspiracy theorist deeply believe all this nonsense and when someone comes along and clarifies this they get mad and want you to believe the “special knowledge” they have. Then they say that you’re a dissinformation agent or that you work for the government.I ask all conspiracy theorist one thing, if the knowledge you posses is so secret, then how is it that you know it? Seriously let’s be real!

  9. The Pfizer manufactured anti-smoking drug chantix is nevertheless effective in helping you to get rid of nicotine addiction, but for chantix to yield effective results, you should follow a definite amount of chantix precautions. The chantix website http://www.chantixmagic.com lists a whole array of chantix precautions that you should follow to ensure success in your chantix regimen. For sure success with chantix, get hold of chantix informative details from the website and then administer the medicine in accordance with the instructions of the doctor.

  10. Whoa crap Mark Zahn’s been immortalized on the ‘Net! His name really is Mark D. Zahn and he’s a 39 year old originally from Wisconsin that is homeless and frequents Boulder, Littleton and the surrounding cities in Colorado. Been like that for approximately 12years it seems. His idols are Adolf Hitler, Jon Bon Jovi, and Thomas Jefferson. He’s a paranoid schizo who believes himself to be the reincarnated Bruce Lee, Hitler, and Jefferson, amongst others. He believes there’s a conspiracy out to get him since he left Wisconsin in 1996(?) led by the Canadian rock band Rush, Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas and his ex-girlfriend Virginia Newbon. Depending on what day it is other conspirators including the the Cho’s Taekwondo instructional dojo in Wisconwin, Clint Eastwood, Wisconsin businessman Dick Strong (an ex-employer), Elvis Presley, and another ex-girlfriend Stephanie Freiboth. Hobbies include mountain biking, filming amateur home videos of his homeless adventures in and around Colorado and posting them on the Internet, watching movies to spot the conspiracy against him, and posting long rants on the public Usenet newsgroups of bands like Rush/Dream Theater/Bon Jovi and making them his own personal “blog” about his various conspiracy theories and thinking he’s communicating directly with these people through psychic thoughts. Essentially he thinks he’s the center of the universe.

  11. Well here are couuple of really wild ones.The US won the Korean War by nuking the British at the Alamo.And—The disappearance of the Mother Theresa cinnamon bun(AKA “The Nun Bun”)…it was born in Nashville,and disappeared on christmas eve…in a burglary from a business and was the only thing stolen.—but that’s not the weird part.What’s really weird is that the Elvis Bun disappeared in Memphis on a Xmas eve 4500 years ago in a similar coffee-shop robbery.

  12. I wrote the last one too.This Elvis bun is fascinating stuff.It’s really hard to track down anything remotely related to it except for the Nun Bun and the Lincoln Squirrel(RIP).—an obvious wacko* once told me that the Elvis Bun had been seen at The Mall of America selling Amway,but this was later disputed as it may have been an Orange Julius from a stand and not home products from the trunk of his car. *dude was wearing an Izod polo shirt with a Polo oxford.Strange indeed. Call me MC Diss in Formation.

  13. 😦 I would dare say there could be a grain of truth to each one of these. Not to believe the entire stories (like urban myths) but a grain of truth.

  14. if you don’t believe that the united states government had something to do with 9/11, swallow your pride and watch the movie “Loose Change: 911” (its on youtube for free) just because you don’t want to believe it dosen’t make everyone else wrong. the movie is jam packed with actual documented evidence suggesting to an extreme measure that our own government played a huge roll in planning and executing the attacks on the WTC in 2001. if you are 100% sure that you are right and our government is innocent, watch it anyway so you know what to argue against, don’t just go by what other people tell you, that’s a lazy ignorant way to live, learn for yourself and develop your own opinions. think for yourself for gods sake, were not children anymore so wake up and smell the governmental bullshit.

  15. Thanks for that timely wakeup call, Anon. I’ve only seen Loose Change half a dozen times, so I’m hoping that I’ll glean something factual and informative from it on the seventh or eighth viewing.Remember, Elvis didn’t do drugs.

  16. I like the conspiracy theory that insects are an old form of espionage with hidden cameras tied within their skulls for the FBI and CIA to know what you are doing. House Flies are the most common form and if you fail to kill the fly, it's really a "tool fly" or something like that. They are being used to spy on the business of other people rather than using them to solve other mysteries and crimes. Yeah, makes perfect sense. -_-

  17. the crazy one is the world is being controlled by shape shifting reptoids and they drink human blood to keep their human appearance. Another one 9/11 was brought down by a lazer from outer space.

  18. The Center for Media Research has released a study by Vertical Response that shows just where many of these ‘Main Street’ players are going with their online dollars. The big winners: e-mail and social media. With only 3.8% of small business folks NOT planning on using e-mail marketing and with social media carrying the perception of being free (which they so rudely discover it is far from free) this should make some in the banner and search crowd a little wary. http://www.onlineuniversalwork.com

  19. . According to the study, the most important tool for small businesses to succeed in 2010 is search engine marketing, while email marketing, public relations and social media cited as crucial for success.23.8% of all small businesses reported that search engine marketing was the tool most needed for their business to succeed in 2010.www.onlineuniversalwork.com

  20. is it barrak hussain obama & biden? or sadaam hussain & osama bin laden? coincidence? i think not. obama IS osama. what better way to hide the worlds most wanted man by turning him into the president. also some clouds are just huge swarms of microscopic cameras watching your every move.

  21. ''Jesus staged his crucifixion''How is this a stupid conspiracy theory? It would be entirelly possible save for one thing; Jesus wasn't real. The existence of Jesus is the biggest, stupidest consoiracy theory.

  22. As a Christian, I strongly believe the Jesus did not "stage his death." It is pretty obvious he was killed, even to Atheists it should be pretty obvious. Only some people are lucky enough to know that he was resurrected.

  23. A 300 meter tower with jet fuel burning in it acts as a giant furnace, sucking in oxygen like a giant blast furnace – steel melts very easily. Simple science, but thats not very interesting is it :):):)
