1. 9/11

September 11, 2001 was the day the United States of America changed forever. The horrible terrorist attack made Americans unite together to fight outside forces. However, some people are not so sure. There are several conspiracy theories around the 9/11 attack.

One of the most common theories is that insiders new about the attack before it happened. Right before the attack, mysterious business was done with the United Airlines and American Airlines stocks. Coincidentally, those were the same planes hijacked in the attack. Many believe traders were told about the attacks in advance and profited from them.

Another theory states the Pentagon attack scientifically does not add up. Theorist wonder why the impact spots were smaller than the plane, why the plane was not shot down before the crash, or why the plane happened to impact a section that was vacant due to reservations at the time.

Other common theories include Flight 93 was staged, the Bin Laden tapes are fake, and Jewish people took off work and recorded the attack because they knew of the attacks prior to that day.

2. Moon Landings

Landing on the moon was a huge step in technology. But did it really happen? Thousands of people believe the whole moon landing was an elaborate set up staged for the world to see. One reason people believe it is all a hoax is because the American flag in the pictures seems to be waving in the lunar wind. Others look at the multiple-angle shadows and believe there must have been another source of light – a studio light. The temperature on the moon in the sun’s rays is 280 degrees Fahrenheit. Theorist use this to claim the film as well as other material would have melted up there.

Others believe the astronauts would not have even made it up there due to fast micrometeorites that would fly through the ship and kill all on board. Many scientists have debunked these and several other theories around the moon landings; however, many simply do not believe humans could really make it to the moon.

3. Holocaust

The Holocaust is another tragedy everyone knows about. It is taught in history classes to try and prevent another such tragedy. Nevertheless, there are conspiracy theories about the Holocaust. Many people are also in denial or have a distorted image of the event. People believe the Holocaust was exaggerated or even invented by the Jewish people in order to advance Jewish interests or create sympathy for the Jews. The theory tends to be believed by those whose views align with anti semitism. Theorist do not believe six million Jews were killed or that the gas chambers existed. In addition, they assure people the Nazis had no plan to exterminate the Jewish people and that the diary of Anne Frank is a forgery. They conclude the number is a huge exaggeration and that the Jewish people died from starvation or disease, not because of the Nazi policy. Although the Holocaust is one of the largest documented events in history, many people still have their doubts.

4. JFK Assassination

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 while in Dallas. He was shot by two bullets, one in the head and one in the neck. Lee Harvey Oswald alone was charged for his murder. A number of people to this day speculate his assassination was a larger plot. 70% of Americans believe Kennedy’s death was a result of a broader plot according to a ABC News poll conducted in 2003. Some suggest simply that there was a second gunman. Others believe in a much broader conspiracy.

One theory is that CIA agents killed him out of anger over the Bay of Pigs or by orders from Vice President Lyndon Johnson. Another is the KGB operatives assassinated him. A final theory states that mobsters killed Kennedy because they were upset about the prosecution of organized crime rings initiated by Kennedy’s brother. One of the country’s most famous political assassination is still under question by thousand of Americans.

5. Secret Groups

According to many theorists, there are secret groups controlling the world. People hear in talk about groups such as the Illuminati or the Freemasons. The world’s strange occurrences seem to only occur from some greater force that has all control. People believe a select few are controlling the world and every event that occurs. Men in black coats or women in black jackets may be watching everyone. There may be someone lurking in the shadows, controlling everything.

6. AIDS

In 1981, the HIV/AIDS outbreak took storm. The disease is dangerous and can prove deadly. So deadly, that some believe it was created to take out certain groups of people. Rumors have arose saying the CIA created the virus to wipe out homosexuals and Africans Americans. A number of high-profile people believe in the conspiracy as well.

South African President Thabo Mbeki once spoke out saying the virus did not start in African. Rather, it was created in military labs. Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai used her newfound international fame to support the theory. Another theory states that the government deliberately injected gay men with the virus during Hepatitis-B experiments taking place in New York, San Francisco and Las Angeles in 1978. Many theories and questions still surround the HIV/AIDS virus to this day.

7. Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor was another tragedy that took America by surprise and caused an uproar. However, like the 9/11 theorists, people believe this attack could have been prevented. Many Americans believed FDR wanted the United States to be a part of World War II. According to theorists, FDR was informed of the attacks that were soon going to take place on Pearl Harbor. He kept this a secret and kept troops there. Theorist believe this was FDR’s way of getting Americans mad and gaining support to join the great war.

8. Beatles

The Beatles are some of the most famous people alive. However, many people believe their fame doesn’t add up. Some people truly believe the Beatles, as they were presented to us, never existed. Several factors, many believe, prove that the famous four were not exactly who they say they were. Theories say there must have been multiple people performing as the 4 Beatles to have performed in so many different locations so close together. Evidence for this, they say, comes from height discrepancies, different eyebrows, different ear shapes, and the difference in teeth that appear in the four people. Theorists believe these discrepancies in the people from performance to performance and picture to picture prove the group of four talented men never existed.

9. Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder – fantastic musician. But is he telling the truth? When Stevie Wonder was born, doctors did not know that highly oxygenated environments in newborn incubators can damage the human eye. As a result, Stevie Wonder lived out his life blind. Or so he says. People point to his vivid imagery in his songs as something he would not know if he was blind. Wonder also gave Darryl Dawkins his nickname “Chocolate Thunder.” The late NBA star claimed that Wonder could see. Two other pieces of evidence assure theorists the music legend is not blind. A picture was taken of Wonder taking a photo of Michael Jackson’s wax sculpture. A video also surfaced of Wonder catching a music stand as it falls on stage. So, is Stevie Wonder really blind?

10. Elvis Presley

Did the King himself fake his death? According to several conspiracy theorists, yes he did. Near the end of Presley’s life, with his divorce, deteriorating health, addiction to drugs, and the endless number of shows and tours, many believe it sent him over the edge. Gail Brewer Giorgio wrote a book titled Is Elvis Alive in 1988. The book went wild and topped charts for bestsellers.

Many signs seem to point to Presley possibly faking his death. First, several people reported seeing him walking the streets after his death. When Elvis was brought to the hospital in 1977, the nurse looked at him and said “that’s not Elvis.” Another clue that proved he was still alive to theorists was that his father sealed his death certificate, something that is currently not available to the public. These along with several other theories make many wonder if he roamed the streets long after his alleged death, which was reported as a heart attack but then later changed to an accidental overdose.

So, what do you believe?
