4 Absurd Conspiracy Theories You Might Not Have Heard About
I like a good conspiracy theory. I don’t believe them, I just like reading about them. But they’ve got to be fresh. Chemtrails, the Illuminati, false flags: I’m over it. Here’s 4 absurd conspiracy theories you might not have heard about.
The Mandela Effect
The Mandela Effect claims that when a large number of people have the same false memory, it might actually be true. How? Parallel universes of course. Is it the Bernstein Bears or Bernstain Bears? Some believe a time traveler might be responsible for our collective false memories. It’s called the Mandela Effect because a large number of people seem to remember Nelson Mandela death taking place in the 80’s. He died in 2013. The extensive website devoted to the theory has all kinds of collective-alternate memories for leaders like Gaddafi, movies like Star Wars, books, and celebrities.
Alex Jones is Bill Hicks
Talk show host Alex Jones is known for his conspiracies. My favorite is that the government is putting chemicals in juice boxes to turn kids transgender. But did you know Alex Jones is a conspiracy himself? According to this theory, comedian Bill Hicks did not die in 1994 and he is actually Alex Jones. Sure, they kind of look alike, and Hicks was famous for his anti-establishment political comedy. But what about Jones’ birth certificate and his life up until 1994? Well it’s all fake apparently.
The Earth is Flat and NASA is a Front to Steal Money
You’ve been lied to, the Earth is flat. Oh those satellite images? Not real. Those are made by NASA as a front to steal money. And they probably aren’t real satellites, they might have just been put there to fool us. I know way more about this theory than I should. But any question you have, they have an answer for. How does night and day work? Airplanes? Go to one of the (too) many Flat Earth Facebook pages and you will see photos “explaining” water patterns, sunrises, and how you will never see the Earth’s curvature even when you drive for a really long time in one direction. This is a real funny theory, until you remember people actually believe this.
Shark Attacks in Egypt? Blame Israel of Course.
Search the internet long enough and you will find out that Israel is actually behind literally everything. ISIS? Mossad Agents. Alex Jones? Zionist plant. MK Ultra or COINTELPRO? Just do a Google Search with the word “Israel” included and let your mind run wild. There’s even an entire Wikipedia page devoted to Israel-related animal conspiracies, but I’m only focusing on one here. In 2010, Egypt unfortunately had a few shark attacks. But according to Egyptian officials, this wasn’t any old shark. This was a shark directly planted by Mossad agents. Why? Shark attacks would hurt the Egyptian tourism industry and economy. Yeah, I’m sure the civil unrest leading up to the 2011 Arab Spring had nothing to do with the drop in tourism.
