Student Shares Thoughts On Conspiracy Theories
May 22, 2018
The definition of a conspiracy theory is “a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for a circumstance or event or an explanation of an event or situation that evokes an unwarranted conspiracy, generally, one involving an illegal or harmful act carried out by the government or other powerful actors.” Conspiracy theories range from TV shows to celebrities, aliens, the government, explanations for catastrophic/unexplained events, and much more.
Of course, the most popular conspiracy is the Illuminati, a secret government organization that controls the modern world and will establish a “New World Order.” The Illuminati factors into many other conspiracies, including The Denver Airport, where it’s 2 billion dollar purpose is to serve as the Illuminati’s underground headquarters. What adds to this theory is that if you type Illuminati backward in google, the National Security Agency’s official website will come up.
There are several conspiracy theories that very well can be true, and among them is the first moon landing being staged. It is believed that the landing was a stunt to raise United States pride during the Cold War in the space race.
The cure for cancer is a long sought-after drug. We are addicted to finding this cure, and theorists believe that it has been found. People who believe this theory predicts that the cure is being withheld so that institutions will continue to receive money and funding for the cure.
Alien theories contribute to many unexplained events. The universe is so massive that it can not be true that life does not exist beyond Earth. The belief is that the government is hiding UFO sighting, crashes and alien life already located on earth and that we are already communicating with other life forms beyond Earth.
There are hundreds of conspiracy theories ranging from the government controlling us from chemtrails released from airplanes to crazy theories like reptiles and Artificial Intelligence running the world while we are completely unaware.
Real or not, theories poke at the government’s secrets, they are fun and entertaining and also make you think of the world in a different perspective. They challenge the facts and create a new meaning to an event. Conspiracy theories may never be true, but if some even have the possibility to be real then we will all be affected in one way or another.
