The World’s Weirdest Conspiracy Theories

Which of The World’s Weirdest/Stupidest Conspiracy Theories do you find most convincing? I must admit, I like the idea that WWII never really happened. “The Illuminati employed elaborate special effects, stage magic, and phoney journalism to scare the world into pacifism.” Via BoingBoing.

    I’ll be receptive to pretty well any theory relating to Christ. Why not. It’s not as if The Big Book wasn’t an anthology of warring agendas right from the beginning.

    The more, the merrier.

    Gnosticism is a “conspiracy” theory? Well I suppose that’s one way to attempt to trivalise a belief system.

    If you haven’t already seen it, the movie Dark Side of the Moon is a wonderful mockumentary on “the moon landing was actually a fake filmed by Stanley Kubrick” theory — with amazing cameo appearances by Kubrick’s wife, Donald Rumsfeld, Dr Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig and Buzz Aldrin. SBS screened it as an April Fool’s joke the other year, but you can see the whole thing on (of course) YouTube.
