Are there any conspiracy theories you actually believe?

Inspired by another thread. Come on even if they're mad ones... fess up.

I cant remember the details but I remember doing a bit of online research years ago and thinking it's not 100% impossible that Tupac faked his death!

I could believe there is one with 9/11 tbh. One of the terrorist's passports being found in the street always makes me hmm...

I know a couple that are true but can't tell you😁

Probably.
Hit me with some and I'll decide!

Not sure if it counts a conspiracy theory, but the truth about the Lockerbie bombing is very different from the US government narrative.

Have you seen the one about Amy Winehouse being lady gaga?

I'm tempted to believe the Tupac one.

I'm also guilty of falling down the rabbit hole that is online 9/11 conspiracy theories!

And JFK's death was a CIA hit I reckon.

The only one I’m hmm about is the moon landings. The footage just looks totally fake.

@Peanutmnm don't leave us hanging! grin

When I was a kid we learned about JFK conspiracies in school so I always have a soft spot for those!

David Kelly and Jeffery Epstein ( more the first) have more than a whiff of dodginess

I can't believe it's a coincidence that COVID started in Wuhan, a town with a virus research centre.

Diana's death was weird.

9/11 was weird.

DP's childhood friends Dad was one of the Marcony employees who apparently died by suicide. I won't go into details but for those that knew him the general consensus was it was murder. A quick google lists what happened to all the victims if anyone is interested.

I don't tend to delve into the details of conspiracy theories but there are events where I question the story we are expected to believe.

I'm quite sure Kelly and Epstein were murdered and like a PP the intact passport of one on the 9/11 terrorists which was supposed to have been blown out of one of the planes always made me wonder. Not sure if it was planted to lend credibility to the truth or to mislead. I never checked if there were any other intact passports found in addition to the terrorists.

9/11 for me too.

SpudleyLass Tue 07-Dec-21 10:54:58

Nope.

I posted on the other thread that I do tend to believe that the CIA wrote the Scorpions song "Wind of Change" as part of their propaganda campaing to accelerate the collapose of the USSR.

I don’t believe Kurt Cobain killed himself

Aimee1987 Tue 07-Dec-21 12:14:39

Diana's death was a royal family hit

Covid was released from a research lab. For this one I would say either accidentally or on purpose by a sole or small group of scientist. I dont think the Chinese goverment were stupid enough to do it.

David Kelly, that guy who was locked in a hold all in his bath, dodgy.

9/11 too, building 7.

There seemed to be dodginess about the Las Vegas shooting.

Niffler92 Tue 07-Dec-21 12:19:54

Now I want to know which thread inspired this one!

traka Tue 07-Dec-21 12:20:33

Roswell and JFK

ANameChangeAgain Tue 07-Dec-21 12:21:14

Not really. I still laugh at the conspiracy theorists organising a storm of Area 51, with the catch phrase of they can't shoot us all. (Yes they could, they are the US airforce.) My children (against my dh's better judgement) were watching the supposed storming live over the Internet and were devastated that nothing cool happened hmm grin

There's a brilliant podcast about this.

I find it easy to believe Diana's death was just an accident, she thought she would be safe with the Al - Fayed's.

Unfortunately, they may have had bodyguards and money etc. what they lacked was the experience, knowledge and expertise needed to deal with security for someone like Diana.

Sadly she got rid of her own guards, she needed someone not on the Al-frayed payroll so that they could say no when needed.

Also they should have worn the seatbelts, the only person to survive was wearing his. Plenty of crash experts concluded she could have survived had she been wearing hers.
