A bloke on the desk opposite me similar age to me, late 20's), wouldn't stop about the pyramids being built by aliens as there is no way h7mans could have done it, with all this stuff about the angles being identical to orions belt or something.

Then he moved on to UFO stuff and how they deactivated a load of US nukes, saying there are too many people high up in the military alluding to It making it impossible to be just a hoax.

Then he had a brief moment on crop circles before the usual 9/11being an inside job stuff.

I couldn't be bothered to carry on with my side so let him just ramble on.

If you've got a couple of hours to spare, watch Zeitgeist - The movie (2007)

I can't do all that linking thingy, but type it into Youtube. All very interesting.

I always find them interesting.
The trouble is, it's impossible to absolutely prove or disprove, anything.
In the end, it just comes down to what you personally, WANT to believe.

I always think conspiracy theories are closely linked to the news and how events are relayed to us.

For example, had 9/11 been reported from day one as a possible inside job, then regardless of evidence,people believe it as such.

Its easy to manipulate the human brain and news outlets are genius at it.

All in my opinion of course. :wink:

I remember there was a stir a couple of years ago when a survey revealed 52% of the Brotish population thought the Moon landings were ****ed:

Ridiculously small sample size though.

Think my favourite moon landing conspiracy theory must be this one:

The passengers deliberately crashed united flight 93 so the terrorists couldn't crash it.

I worked with someone who was a firm believer in the chem-trails one (where airline companies inject certain things into the vapour trails of aircraft as they fly over highly populated areas. When these chemicals fall, they lead to disease which then controls the population - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemtrail ... acy_theory

He'd taken his fair share of drugs over the course of his life, it was fair to say.

Some of the conspiracy theories do seem to produce evidence that is hard to argue with, I must say - I've watched a few 9/11 documentaries and seeing how absolutely convinced some people are, certainly made me think. Eventually, stuff so big would eventually come out.

Regarding 9/11 - there is no way that WTC7 wasn't bought down via a controlled demolition..
