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!

Epstein definitely didn’t off himself and neither did Marilyn Monroe, also there’s definitely something to Roswell

Totally de-railing the thread but does anyone investing in cryptocurrency have any useful links or books to recommend?

Oh and I fully believe Epstein didn't kill himself.

@AdoptedBumpkin

Not sure if it's classed as a conspiracy theory, but I do believe some/most of the rumours about Cliff Richard are true. (I don't just mean being gay)

Me too Bumpkin, but I don’t think it counts as a conspiracy theory 🤔

@User13490358923

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.

Got to buy the dip! Grin

Sadly I don't have that much money but I have invested a little bit and it's tripled in a few months.

I did try to buy some land on a beta version of a big multi-player game a few months ago when it was going for under a hundred pounds but my bank wouldn't work on the crypto exchange trading that alt coin and my credit cards wouldn't either. By the time I'd set up a starling account, the land was gone. It's now selling for 14,000 per plot. Annoying!

@LookslovelyinSpringtime many people believe that "Shakespeare" was a pseudonym and that a glove-makers son from Stratford on Avon couldn't possibly have written all those plays, as intelligently as he did.

A surprising number of Shakespeare actors believe this.

However, actors aren't historians or literature experts...

There's a lot of ignorance about literacy and education of middle class boys in the c16th which leads to a lot of misunderstandings about society at that time.

What is true is that many of Shakespeares plays didn't originate with him - they'd either existed in other forms, or as stories, beforehand. This was quite common for the period! But Shakespeare was the writer who turned them into plays as intelligently written as they are. A few of his plays were also probably written in collaboration with other playwrights who's names are no longer associated with those plays because they lacked the fame of Shakespeare.

Neither of these facts mean that Shakespeares works were really written by the Earl of Southampton or whoever.

That Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t act alone.

I think Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare (probably with help) but believe the first folio was put together in a certain way to conceal Rosicrucian/magical concepts.

What do you mean Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare?

Dr David Kelly was definitely murdered. The stand out point being the ambulance crews description of how the body was found differing a lot from how the body was described to be have been found in the enquiry. And then the two ambulance crew's recollections being challenged as mistaken or confused.

I mean why would both members of an ambulance crew chose to lie about how a body was found when they have probably never heard of Dr David Kelly before.

Okbye
Totally agree with you my DH has made quite a lot on crypto , another 10/20 years it will be one of the main currencies. I have invested some money not really for myself but for my grandchildren , if I lose it all haho if it does what I think it might will help my family a lot. Remember the governments and thoses who run the world want us all in debt and to be poor. That way they can control us .

The UK deliberately released viruses out in the open amongst the general population - from Porton Down - to observe and record the various effects that they might have. Not theory - documented fact and reported on the mainstream (ITV) news when it came to light.

@Igotstoknow the items were ridiculously priced, nobody would have really wanted to buy a normal set of drawers for like 500k. But the whole conspiracy theory fell apart when one of the missing people was found and was pissed off everyone kept saying she was being trafficked by wayfair 🤣 It's probably some really boring reason that the items were so overpriced, programming glitch, money laundering etc.

@Worldgonecrazy what was the reality of Lockerbie?

The think the chap found in a padlocked duffle bag in the bath when the heating was turned right up was undeniably murdered so I don't think that's a conspiracy. The conspiracy theory surely is the cover up.

Epstein I think as probably murdered. Although I really don't see the point of rich and powerful people bumping off those who might involve them in scandal- they have enough money and influence to ensure they're not found guilty etc. Seems like a pointless exercise to me.

Curious as to why JFKs death is thought to be a cia hit? Never heard that before.

I still believe that Area 51 in the United States has something to do with alien spacecraft. And I know how mad that sounds, but I do.

I don't believe Diana's death was just an accident caused by a driver going too fast because they were being pursued by photographers. There are just so many unanswered questions and weird things that happened that night. Not sure who was behind it but it wasn't an accident

To be honest we could all say we’re scientists from Wuhan on here. I don’t think the Chinese government would take the above very well..

I know for a fact that covid started in a lab in wuhan, I recently met a virologist from Wuhan who trained at Oxford that confirmed this, Her parents still live in Wuhan and it appears to be a known fact in the area that it was created in a lab, whether or nothing it was accidentally or deliberately released is unknown.

Well I know for a fact it isn’t.

Not really but you can say anything with conviction on an anonymous forum.

@AlbertBridge

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.
