We humans love drama. We love it so much that whenever we find it our initial reaction is to immediately tell someone, and if we don’t find any we make it up and tell someone anyway. Besides, what would the world be without UFO’s falling from the sky, shadow governments watching our ever move, and big brother trying to keep you down. These are the top 25 most popular conspiracy theories out there. (list included below video)
20. Elvis and Tupac
Although not directly related, the concept is similar. Elvis died in 1977 and Tupac in 1996, which not surprisingly doesn’t keep some people from passionately believing they are still with us.
When the exhaust from a plane’s engine hits the cold air and begins to condense it leaves a vapor trail also known as a contrail. Some people, however, exercising their paranoia are convinced that the government is spraying chemical agents at its citizens from 30,000 feet hence the name, chemtrail.
10. Peak Oil
There are some who believe that peak oil is a fraud put forth by the oil industry as a method of keeping prices high. Supposedly the companies are holding massive reserves under wraps to maintain the illusion that oil is scarce.
5. The Moon Landing
In one of the most popular conspiracy theories of our time proponents argue that the moon landing was actually an elaborate hoax and all the pictures supposedly taken hundreds of thousands of miles away were actually taken in studios right here on Earth.
