While some people are quick to dismiss conspiracy theories, others like to delve deeper into them. Though we have discovered a lot about the world, there is still so much mystery surrounding us that is yet to be unravelled.

Truck driver that delivered my flooring gave me this gem: The push for green lawns in the US is by Big Pharma.

The cliff notes version is that to get green grass, you need pesticides, pesticides cause cancer, cancer is good business for drug companies. It was like a 20 minute long rant to get to that conclusion and it was an adventure.

My friend and his dad are big Conspiracy theorists. They listened to Alex Jones every day and believed him too. A couple of years ago it was on the news that some Navy Seals and the PD Swat were going to do a joint training exercise. Those 2 were convinced that it was all a ruse and that they were going to try and take over the city. So that day they didn’t open their business and stayed home and armed themselves with every weapon they had and waited for an “attack”

#11 My mother believes that it’s so difficult to get appointments with doctors is because illegal immigrants are taking all the appointments. I laughed until I realized she was serious.

#12 I have to say the one about politicians drinking infant blood in the basements of pizza parlors in order to get adrenochrome is a pretty crazy one. Because the only way to get adrenochrome is through vampiric acts since chemistry isn’t a thing

#15 Met a dude at the gym that believed that the CIA had built tunnels throughout the Earth’s core, connecting all the major cities. Was some kind of global takeover scheme.

#16 That Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen, and they made the movie Frozen so that when people googled “Walt Disney Frozen” the movie would come up first.

Some nutjobs have convinced themselves that every celebrity is trans. They point out all kinds of physical attributes that “prove it” like “masculine jawline” and “male eyes”, or “too small hips that a woman wouldn’t be able to birth through, must be a man”. One bikini pic of Taylor Swift shows a bit pronounced pubic mound, and the conspiracy nutters never having seen a natural naked woman went “Yup must be a penis” It’s called Transvestigation if you’re interested.

#18 Mountains are all the stumps of ancient fossilized enormous trees. I’m absolutely *obsessed* with this theory. It’s connected to flat earth, but flat earth isn’t a requirement for this theory nor do most flat earthers believe it.

#19 That Finland doesn’t exist

#20 Conspiracy 58. Basically, a conspiracy that the World Cup from 1958 never happened in Sweden as it was broadcast and it was a CIA psy-op. The conspiracy is documented in a movie *Conspiracy 58,* which makes a very compelling case – until at the every end of the credits, were it claims to be a work of fiction (but the text only in Swedish). People legitimately believe this theory now.

Covid was not a virus, it was actually the result of the Catholic church lacing the world’s water supply with King Cobra venom in order to genetically transform the world’s populace into snake-human-demon hybrids, thus preventing them from going to heaven. This was all because the scientific name of the King Cobra and a piece of a bishop’s miter contain the word “corona”. The person who presented this theory apparently had no idea that corona just means crown in latin, he was presumably too busy being contacted by God through fortune cookies he got from a chinese restaurant.

#23 The “5g waves emitted by the Emergency Broadcast test activate the Covid vaccine microchips and turn people into zombies/give them Marburg” one is definitely one of the weirdest I’ve ever heard

A very strange conspiracy theory I’ve heard about is the story of the “Lizardpeople” or “reptilians”. According to this theory, high-ranking political leaders and celebrities are actually hidden humanoid reptilians who control the world. They are supposed to be able to change their form and aim to manipulate humanity. It sounds like the script of a science fiction movie, but there are people who really believe it. Well, sometimes people’s imagination knows no bounds!

#25 That owning chickens are the gateway drug to believing conspiracy theories

#26 We’re all infected by parasites that feed on our stress hormones reseased by negative emotions like guilt, sadness, anger, fear, and so on. They control our minds and, thereby, us to an extent. The only way to combat them is by being aware and questioning if your thoughts and actions are truly your own thoughts and actions.

Cyber Returns: I always question my thoughts. Most of the time they don’t make the slightest bit of sense

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
