Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Man did not land on the moon and I can easily prove it.
Fact: the moon is made of cheese.
Fact: Man likes cheese.
Therefore, man did not land on the moon. If he did we would have gone back to mine the cheese.

History professor told me most historians believe in at least one stupid crazy conspiracy theory.

It's like fan-fiction, but for history nerds instead of other-stuff nerds.

If Hitler can burn a building down and blame it on the communist in order to invade. Well 70 years later I am sure there is worse evil.

9/11 was an inside job.
JFK was murdered by the elite.
Russia has asked Obama to tell the truth on aliens.
JayZ isn't even near the middle of the Illuminati - just a pawn.

Now, to curl up in my aluminum lined blanket and sleep.

The Masonic stuff just kills me.

I would like to know how a bunch of men with an average age of about 75, that can barely drive a car and can not agree on what brand of coffee to drink after meetings or if they should have cake or pie, can possibly rule the world. most of these guys need permission from their wives just to go to a meeting.

It's a common misconception. The Masons are not THE group, they are only used as a feeder group for occasional recruitment. Even then, only a tiny fraction of a percent are ever recruited. The rest of them are just regular Masons going about their business with absolutely no knowledge of any extracurricular activities.

That was in order to assume emergency powers, suspend Wiemar Constitutional rights, and basically become a temporary dictator to keep people safe from the Communist terrorists. It was the false flag attack on the radio station (along with a couple other faked things) used to justify the start of the war.

On the night of 31 August 1939, a small group of German operatives, dressed in Polish uniforms and led by Naujocks,[2] seized the Gleiwitz station and broadcast a short anti-German message in Polish (sources vary on the content of the message). The Germans' goal was to make the attack and the broadcast look like the work of anti-German Polish saboteurs.[2][3]

To make the attack seem more convincing, the Germans brought in Franciszek Honiok, a German Silesian known for sympathizing with the Poles, who had been arrested the previous day by the Gestapo. Honiok was dressed to look like a saboteur; then killed by lethal injection, given gunshot wounds, and left dead at the scene, so that he appeared to have been killed while attacking the station. His corpse was subsequently presented as proof of the attack to the police and press.[4]



This provocation was the best-known of several actions in Operation Himmler, a series of unconventional operations undertaken by the SS in order to serve specific propaganda goals of Na zi Germany at the outbreak of the war. It was intended to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany in order to justify the subsequent invasion of Poland.



The truth was admitted during the Nurenberg trials.

Alex Jones is my idol...

I just puked a little typing that out. I get the "luxury" of carpooling with an avid Alex Jones fan and the crap that spews from his mouth amazes me. I believe in me share of conspiracies (some 9/11 stuff really doesn't add up for me), but so many of these ideas out there are soooo far fetched. Like I often see a strong electrical pull blow circuits 15 minutes after its over... *sigh*

I LOVE THEM ALL!!!

I don't believe any of them,... or well, maybe a 10th of a couple of them. (I found the whole Atlantis possibility fascinating.)

I confess I read one of the Kennedy conspiracy books. And c'mon, raise your hands, y'all KNOW you at least read a chapter of "Chariots of the Gods." (or am I dating myself here?) I even tried to struggle through (non-finishing) "Holy Blood, Holy Grail."

I call these traits in myself, my Oliver Stone moments. :-)

Well it's a well know fact that there's a group of the five wealthiest people in the world known as the pentaverate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers. And meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion known as, the Meadows. So who's in this pentaverate?

I don't think you know what a False Flag is. Not that wiki is really a reliable source, but here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_flag

The biggest conspiracy is the "safety" promised to us if we will just continue to neglect our rights. The apathy abounding, thereby condoning the juggernauts who ignore our rights, particularly those guaranteed to be respected by the founding documents of our great republic, is staggering.

Alex Jones does appear to be crazy, but I suspect he was made that way by the crazy world. (The only sane reaction to an insane world very closely resembles insanity.) Listen more to what he says than how he says it. ;-)

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

My favorite conspiracy: The moon landing. The Ruskies were first in every space age milestone: first launch into space, first animal in space, first person, etc. Then with the computer power of a Texas Instrument calculator, they land on the moon. And for some reason, the only views we get are from that lone monitor down in Cape Canaveral. Every picture the astronauts took was immaculate, pre-focused, and centered perfectly, with the same moon hill in the back ground. Great effort, I've got to say... and it brought down the Soviet empire 20 years later.
For me: the moon landing

Ever watch Ancient Aliens on the History/H2 channel? Total BS but really interesting & fun to watch. I didn't even know half that stuff existed until I watched the show.

My favorite is to watch Erich Von Daniken go on a tangent or seeing how bad of a fake tan Giorgio A. Tsoukalos is sporting.

I just bought a set from Woot the $69 one. I used the pie pan oven to counter top. It exploded it was a little scary had my kids been in the kitchen they could have been seriously hurt.
