Are there any conspiracy theories you actually believe?
AnxiousAngelina · 07/12/2021 07:28
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!

That covid nhs passes are a cover for introducing a Chinese style social credit system.

People are being told crypto is a scam and terrible for the environment because it's actually the biggest creator of generational wealth since the industrial revolution. Those who know and have the means to immerse themselves in the market want to reap the benefits themselves with minimal competition. Mainstream media is also part of the conspiracy because they know by reporting every tiny bitcoin drop (aka price correction) with scary headlines, it creates uncertainty and suspicion in those unfamiliar with it.
Women in particular are most disadvantaged by the shift towards defi and web 3.0. They are typically late adopters and generally have less interest and time to learn the technical side of crypto. The market is dominated by men, many of whom were typically on the fringes of mainstream society (geeks, techs, so-called incels etc). Keeping women out makes perfect sense since defi is creating a new heirarchy of wealth that is almost exclusively in the hands of men. Women are already disadvantaged in traditional finance due to childcare, career breaks, SAHM, marriage or not etc. Fewer women own property outright or have the same financial power as their husbands.
Once defi becomes mainstream in 5-10 years, the millionaires and billionaires have already been established. Those are the same people busy squirrelling away wealth this very moment. (Digital wealth = crypto coins, tokens, nfts, metaverse property etc.) The vast majority of people reading this thread may not have even heard of those terms nor be in any position to invest themselves. With the chaos of covid, why would anyone spend their extra money towards virtual assets that could crash to zero?
This is exactly the conspiracy happening now. While the majority of the world is distracted and beaten down by covid, there's a tiny faction orchestrating one of the greatest wealth transfers to happen in generations. Someone compared it to buying land in Manhattan in the 1900s. The amazing thing about crypto is that's technically open to anyone but still nobody chooses to go in there.

Yep I said this on the other thread. I think it was a hit. The handwriting at the bottom of his ‘suicide’ note is completely different, the first bit is just a letter the end but looks tagged on.

Diana death was a hit - too much not right including the entire tunnel being bleached within hours of the accident / doctor on seen being told to go home and not get involved etc the white fiat etc
David Kelly did not kill himself
MM was a hit - she knew too much about people she was having multiple affairs with

• 911 was definitely an inside job. The more you read about it the more obvious it becomes.
•Covid was planted. Either for research or to control the population of the country.
Tempted by the Diana one but I love the RF so I'm conflicted.
I love a conspiracy! Any good conspiracy podcast out there that anyone can recommend?
discoland · 07/12/2021 20:44
I think covid accidentally coming from a lab is entirely plausible, nobody is completely sure the exact root
SallyAnn32 · 07/12/2021 20:39
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.
Thatldo · 07/12/2021 18:02
No.conspiracy theories are for adult crackpots that also believe in fairies at the bottom of the garden.
jollygreenpea · 07/12/2021 17:59
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.
gabsdot45 · 07/12/2021 14:49
There's a brilliant podcast about this.
ANameChangeAgain · 07/12/2021 12:21
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
traka · 07/12/2021 12:20
Roswell and JFK
Niffler92 · 07/12/2021 12:19
Now I want to know which thread inspired this one!
Wokemon · 07/12/2021 12:16
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.
Aimee1987 · 07/12/2021 12:14
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.
EmpressSuiko · 07/12/2021 12:11
I don’t believe Kurt Cobain killed himself
Planesmistakenforstars · 07/12/2021 11:17
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.
SpookyScarySkeletons · 07/12/2021 11:17
Started reading this and then I've remembered I actually have to do some work today!! Bookmarking to read this evening though!

Somethingsnappy · 07/12/2021 10:52
9/11 for me too.
FOJN · 07/12/2021 09:01
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.
IsAnybodyListening · 07/12/2021 08:54
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.
AlbertBridge · 07/12/2021 08:38
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.
raviolo · 07/12/2021 08:37
David Kelly and Jeffery Epstein ( more the first) have more than a whiff of dodginess
