What's the Dumbest Conspiracy Theory You've Heard?

Post by cfldave » Wed Aug 22, 2007 7:37 pm

9/11 has generated all sorts of idiotic conspiracy theories. Surely this has to rank as one of the dumbest:

"Shortly after September 11, 2001, false rumors began to circulate claiming that 4,000 Jews, or 4,000 Israelis, had failed to report for work at the World Trade Center (WTC) on 9/11, supposedly because they had been warned to stay away by Israeli secret services, which were allegedly responsible for the attack."
Wikipedia

Another absurd conspiracy theory tells us that the moon landings never happened. We know they must have happened because were also told the Nazis had a moon base during the second world war. Surely if the Nazis made it in 1944 then the Americans could have in 1969.

What are your favourite conspiracy theories?

I heard that the secret about the moon landing and the loss of video from it was because..........when the U.S went to the moon, there were aliens already there. Thus creating the abduction for technology theory....

but the real conspiracy is.............Troy westwood was told to fake an injury for obvious reasons. :D

Worst conspiracy: Santa isn't real.

He is, cuz I've seen him. The flag he carries doesn't wave because the sun angle is wrong, and the plane he flies was chartered by the government to fly into Superman's Fortress of Solitude so that Supes would attack Iraq.

That Easter Bunny character and his breaking and entering Daniel Ellsburg's psychiatrist's office while he stayed at the Watergate was a bunch of hooey, too.

The Aliens are here, and they own convenience stores. Ever had a convenience store clerk EVER get the thing behind the counter that you asked for, and that you're pointing at?? No. Because they are Tau Cetians, water creatures who communicate by sonar, so they can't understand you and your pitiful clucking of vocal cords. The only way they ever will understand you is to get their Universal Translator that is hidden beneath the "Face" on Mars, taken there by Atlanteans as the lost continent sunk beneath the waves years ago.

It's a conspiracy, I tell ya.

I know Tuck is planning to kill me. Every game I see him on his Blackberry, co-ordinating things with a hit-man. It's a good thing he's dyslexic after a couple of beers and usually sends the hit-man to level 500 to search in vain for the guy wearing the 'Kcusstac' jersey.

If he ever goes on the wagon I'll never be able to attend another game.

I'm loving this stuff but honestly where are the conspiracy theorists, why aren't they defending their honor?

Surely there is at least one conspiracy theory (besides global warming all you environmental reactionaries :wink: ) somewhere out there worth defending.

Migs? Migs? Where are you?

One theory I read recently was that the world trade center didn't fall because of the aircraft hitting them. By timing the actual collapse, they figured that structurally there was no resistance so there must have been bombs planted on each floor that took it down. :juggle:
