Top 10 Stupidest Conspiracy Theories


The Top Ten

1 Adolf Hitler is Still Alive Adolf Hitler is Still Alive Adolf Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and F├╝hrer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of more.

He's dead since 1945 - ElSherlock

I don't believe this conspiracy theory, but in my view it is not stupid idea. The Flat Earth is the stupidest conspiracy theory.

Ah yes Adolf Hitler who would be around 126 years old. Big age.

People like seeing things they don't normally see. This often leads to people seeing exactly what they want to see, even though what they want to see is not what's actually there. Thus, for instance, a study saying that the theory is true gets so much popularity, whereas seven studies that disprove it are never spoken of. Humanity needs to learn how to give up their dreams of making this world into something from an action movie, and simply wake up, do the research, do the math, and face the facts. But oh well - the Internet's obsessed with the man anyway, which thoroughly sickens me.

2 Fake Moon Landing

I'm a celeb a contestant thinks it was a lie. When will people learn.

To be fair, I'm not 100% about this one. - IcetailofWishClan

Its odd about the fact that many Americans still believed that the moon landings were staged. Even though the Soviet Union not only knew that we landed, but even congratulated us on the first landing. - thatonememedealer

People are strange - in one instance of time they can both detest change and still obsess with seeing and romanticizing things that are out of the ordinary. People believe this theory because they refuse to accept that it's possible, and yet they believe the theory above this one (which I shall not speak of by name) because they refuse to accept that it's IMpossible. They begin jumping to conclusions simply because they won't listen to the science explaining how it works, what made it happen. I can't believe how people can be so accepting, and yet so closed-minded.

Disgrace to humanity

Wait, was this a real theory? What the hell? - Mcgillacuddy

6 World War 2 Never Happened

Don't be an idiot my Grandma was eleven.

To ModernSpongeBobSucks: I had a friend once who was paranoid about "the government" and believed they had tried to get rid of her when she was 5 (I won't share the exact story, just in case she reads this) - a lot of conspiracy theorists are like that. She refused to listen to my voice of reason saying that anything like that would definitely make the headlines or at least find its way to a lawsuit. I'm telling you: it doesn't have to make sense, it just has to agree with what the conspiracy theorist believes. It's like how we all have a favorite genre of music - we only listen to what we want to hear.

How can anyone defend that conspiracy theory?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

There are people who were alive during world war 2 and can tell you it was real

7 The Middle Ages Never Happened

Look at the Tower of London idiot.

That doesn't even make any sense, what do people mean by that? - Songsta41

It's not that they slept for many years or anything, it's just that everything we currently know about the middle ages is wrong - EpicHorrorMaster

If that were true, then all my love of medieval stuff would be pointless. - Merilille

How would this even be possible? - Mcgillacuddy

8 George Bush Did 9/11 George Bush Did 9/11


It were crazy angry terrorists that did this. But it could have been stopped but George Bush did nothing. My dad was in the military when 9/11 happened. George Bush pushed back the military and only send a missile somewhere way off. I'm not saying George Bush caused 9/11 cause obviously he didn't I'm saying he could of prevent 9/11 but he didn't. - tacoperson

To the person below: What facts? You didn't present anything but opinions.

What's stupid about it? Obviously, not him personally, just another pawn in the "game", but a stupid conspiracy theory would be, Bin Laden (Al Qaeda) had something to do with it. Just look at the facts!

9 Life is Someone's Dream

Something out there is dreaming about everything on this planet.
Things in the dream...Religion, Justin Bieber, Teletubbies, North Korea.
All of your movements everything you do is a dream of something.
Of course this hasn't been proven but I remember talking about it years ago.

Maybe Gods life.

This is not a "conspiracy theory," but a theory of existence, generally taken as a thought exercise.

I... I... Excuse, me, I'll just be in my room lying on the floor like a piece of trash contemplating existence for a couple of days.

10 Chemtrails Control the Population

The Contenders

11 Obama Can Control the Weather Using a Magical Machine

This sounds similar to North Korea who made the crap saying Kim Jong Um is a God who can control the weather.

I know a lot of people hate Obama, but a conspiracy theory like this is one in particular that seems to be the most ridiculous one ever thought up that is cringe worthy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is so stupid it hurts. It physically hurts.

12 Black Sabbath Sold Their Souls for Rock 'N Roll

Lol. I laughed so hard when I past this - 12cc

I do believe those are song lyrics? *actually laughing*

13 Osama Bin Laden is Obama

Other than the fact that Osama and Obama sound similar, please tell me how this conspiracy theory was thought up. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

These two look nothing alike - Mcgillacuddy

Osama is alive and living in the carribean cause Obama faked his death to make himself look good. Proof is they never showed his body like they did Saddam and Gaddafi. Besides, all those ragheads look the same anyway - bobbythebrony

So heres how this theory is true (joke) Osama bin ladin secretly adopted an african child by the name of obama he trained him in the ways of the gohldi, a karate form. Osama then sent obama into the usa with a fake birth certificate and he slowly became more powerful. It is said obama would attack the usa on his last day of the presidentcy - Yatagarasu

14 Elvis Presley is Still Alive

People still believe in this, seriously! - Luckys

He's dead - ElSherlock

Not as horribly sickening as the "Adolf Hitler is still alive" one, but both can be proven utterly invalid using research and math. Let's take a look at a biography of Presley: Presley was born in 1935. Subtract that from the current year (2016), and the result is 81. The average age of death in the US is 78.7 years, and despite the fact that there are people who have lived to 81 (my grandfather was one), Presley died during (and probably because of) a drug addiction. So, even though he might still be alive if he wasn't addicted, he was, and most people could tell. If that's not enough for you, the life expectancy for white males of 1935 was 61 years. Elvis is most definitely dead, however, I (sympathize? Empathize? ) with Elvis fans who miss him.

People who still believe this are annoying. - Swellow

15 Cats are Aliens Who Came to Earth to Invade Us

You been watching that movie Cats and Dogs, the Cats are evil and the Dogs are good.
I liked it when I was younger but Cats being evil and Dogs good is completely the silliest thing for story.
I would never ever watch the sequel the first was a silly idea even if it was a childhood fave that I wouldn't watch again.

This what a cartoon episode would look like - ElSherlock

If so they kind of succeeded if you think about it.

Humans are aliens who came to Earth to invade animals? By the way, why is everything in capitals in the titles? - Alkadikce

16 God is Real

The only thing Atheists achieved by putting this on the list will be an angry religious person putting "God isn't real" on the list. I can't really imagine what are Atheists like, but I guess it is about logic reasoning against God, and not plain silly insulting and provocation like this. So the ones who put this here might not be Atheists but trolls. - Alkadikce

Um not everyone believes in God - ElSherlock

That's just a belief. - Luckys

17 Cthulu is Real

He is real. Only in Mythology and fiction - ElSherlock

Yeah, he's real all right. Wait, am I correct in making that joke based upon the fact that he's a fictitious character in a real book, a real tabletop RPG, and a real video game (if your personal Terraria headcanon is that Cthulhu is the Moon Lord)? Does that count as "real"? Crud, I just ruined my own joke.

About my lower comment: Scratch that about the Terraria there. I just learned that the developers said that ML is Cthulhu's brother. But that still makes the "fictitious character in a real game" thing I was doing work for Terraria.

Cthulhu shall be the ultimate endgame boss

18 The Earth is a Flat Line

It was proven years and years before our life, that the world is not flat. If earth is flat then why are the other planets not flat? It was just something people believed in ancient times that earth was flat but finally discovered it wasn't.

I've heard of the Earth being flat. But a single line? Look around you! Everywhere you go, you can go more than one direction in three-dimensional space! This is crazy!

Just take a look around the town andd u can viewww the world around youhho. Therefore I disagree with this conspiracy

19 Kurt Cobain's Still Alive as a Peruvian Singer

So because of a Peruvian singer that mocks his voice he's automatically alive?

I wish this was true, he could at least not be dead!

20 The Gender Wage Gap

Reacting to the comments here : nobody ever listened to real people talking about the gender wage gap :
Of course it's not just that people pay women less for the same job. It's that they have way, way more unstable carrers due to childcare and traditional roles, which make them often have to work less or stop working. SO many are complaining that while women have to put their careers at stake to care for their children, men can continue working full-time, which is arguably unfair.

Men just want to rule the world. In history they didn't want girls going to school, they didn't want women to vote, so now they just want more money than women and if women say they want equal pay they will say "Stupid feminazi! " or "Troll". You don't like equality. If you could you would want less women working.

Its not a conspiracy theory in no country do women get equal pay to men. How about votes for women? When girls couldn't even go to school?

21 Princess Diana Was Murdered by the Royal Family

This is the only one on this list that has truth and evidence to it though...

To the one below: What's the evidence? I'm not familiar with this theory.

22 Michael Jackson is Still Alive

Can someone with at least 1 braincell make a documentary about "Stop Making documentaries saying that Michael Jackson is a paedophile."

He is in the year 3000 under water, just watch the Busted video.

He is a zombie DUH!

Mcgillacuddy - if he is alive then he is on an uninhabited island.

24 Hollow Earth

If the earth was hollow, then how to volcanoes erupt?

YOU'VE never been in Earth's core, you can't DISPROVE this.

Man, I should be a theorist, this would be a great imagination exercise. - keycha1n

Here's proof from Sebastian Riese of stackexchange:

There is pretty strong evidence falling into groups

As transversal waves do not propagate through liquid. By monitoring the travel times and types of seismic waves globally after earth quakes, one can reconstruct the velocity profile for the different kinds of waves in inner of the earth. Then one can see that the transversal waves are reflected (by something that is pretty surely the molten core).

This way, one can even conclude that there is a hard inner core under the molten core (which is in the ongoing process of crystallizing out of the liquid outer core, the released energy is one important source for the convection of the outer core and thus continental drift, the other energy source being radioactive decay of primordial radioactive isotopes).
The Earth Magnetic Field

To my knowledge there is no sensible explanation for the magnetic field of the earth, other than it is created ...more

25 The Moon is Made of Cheese

Thanks to believing that when watching A Grand Day Out when I was little, I believed it then but I was very young.

32 The 9/11 "No Planes" Theory

33 Jewish people are human-lizard hybrids

"The JEWS are reptilians" - Pink Guy - xandermartin98

34 Feminists Work for Hitler

Third wave feminists work for Hitler.

35 The Illuminati is Real

It was real at one time, actually, however, they had nothing to do with the eye triangle, the number 3, or the obnoxious yet famous combination of air horns, sunglasses, junk food, and *AHEM SUBSTANCES*, thus I don't see them becoming over time what they are supposed to be today. I know that proof is a little off (I've had a long morning of theory debunking, so now all I have is just my common sense), so you want more proof, go find more proof. I'm sure you can look it up.

This is scary and very, very wrong.

Don't know if it is actually real, but some may agree it is - Neonco31

This is real

39 Reptilian People

Donald Trump is secretly a reptilian alien assuming the form of a human. The Queen of England is apparently a man-like lizard, according to Vladimir Putin. The World's Royal Families and the Ruling Elite are reptile-like aliens who have been conspiring to take over the Earth from Day One!

There's a reason why I hate this theory so much. IT MAKES NO SENSE! I like conspiracy theories, no denying that, but to assume that we have reptilian people is just an overstretch of stupidity. Then again... - CrimsonShark
