If there’s one thing that we love as a species, it’s a conspiracy theory… does that exist? Are they alive? Was it them? For whatever reason, we just love to keep on guessing. There are many conspiracy theories out there… from theories that have most of us pondering the truth to the crazy, wacky things that have the large majority just shrugging our shoulders.
When I looked into browsing activity, I found that on a monthly average in the UK, this subject gets a lot of hits. ‘Crop circles’ gets almost ten thousand hits a month! Searches for ‘UFO’ and ‘Area 51’ are much higher though, reaching a combined total of over 120,000 hits per month. A huge population of people, globally, hold a belief that governments are suppressing evidence of knowledge regarding ‘Aliens.’ Do you believe them? Are the government lying? Or, Is it all just one big lie?
This was a traumatic event that took the world by surprise. It caused devastation, heartbreak and left many people with questions. A theory was drafted up within hours of the attack, questioning the parties involved with Al-Quaeda and whether high-level government officials had inside knowledge. Throughout the years, many different ideas have surfaced and been shut down but all have the same motive. Was it an inside job? Were bombs in the building? Or, was it just as it appeared, an awful terror attack on the USA.
I looked again at browsing activity for ‘Tupac Alive.’ This search still gets around 2,900 UK monthly hits… not crazy numbers but to say he is an American rapper that died over 20 years ago, the numbers are still pretty crazy. Tupac Shakur was struck by 40 caliber rounds fired from a Glock in a drive-by shooting. He was only 25 years old. The did-he, didn’t-he mysteries around his murder has left people second-guessing information. It’s one of the biggest myths in modern-music history. Is he still alive? Where is he? Or, did he actually die that fateful night.
Many people share thoughts that 5G was implemented to control people and that it also contributed in the spread of Covid-19. The rumours and paranoia of such matters circulated at such a fast rate that people began taking matters into their own hands. 5G towers started getting torched around the globe and the theories were spreading like wildfire. This would have been largely due to the lockdowns encouraging us to spend more time on our phones. What is your opinion on this? Do you think this is the route of control, of the pandemic? Or, is it just an implementation of telephone masts.
The Earth is flat
Now, this is a strange one. According to statistics, 33,100 UK monthly searches fall under ‘Flat Earth.’ Many people that this is a genuine truth and that we are all living under a massive conspiracy. Aristotle was the first to first disprove the theory but in the 6th century, the Pythagorus idea also suggested of the earth being round. However, there are plenty of people that disagree. There are conventions and societies for people who have this shared belief, often referring to themselves as ‘open-minded’ and ‘flat-earthers’. Do you believe this theory? How do you think this theory will be proved? Or, is the earth in fact round, as said by physicians.
