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 Führer 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.

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.

It's 2016 now. Even if Adolf Hitler didn't commit suicide, he would already be dead of old age by this year. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Most people believe he took a submarine to Argentina and he lived there until his death, he would have assumed another identity though for that - Neonco31

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

2 Fake Moon Landing

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.

It sad how people always will ignore something if it makes them feel better. Those of you who cling to NASA's hems are sad examples of this. NASA even states that their goals nowadays is too simply leave earths orbit, let alone land somewhere. They call us, who actually see truth ignorant. The moon footage looks like a cheesy star wars movie, and don't tell me it was the camera quality, because if our Camera's sucked, then our spacecrafts were centuries beyond them.

No doubt it was faked in the Arizona desert. If you watch the footage closely, you can see three Mexicans running the border in the background.

That's not racism, do you really think someone saying someone's ethnicity is racist? - Songsta41

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

6 World War 2 Never Happened

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

Don't be an idiot my Grandma was eleven.

7 The Middle Ages Never Happened

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

Look at the Tower of London idiot.

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

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.

Then its me because I think figures in a dream do not think

Maybe Gods life.

The Newcomers

? Most of the World Leaders are Space Lizards
? The Moon Isn't Real

The Contenders

11 Obama Can Control the Weather Using a Magical Machine

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

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

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

They don't seem like very *smart* aliens... *watches my cat completely freak out over the loud sound the coffee maker makes even though the coffee maker has never actually presented a danger to her*...I mean, cats are smart as in they can figure out humans, but they aren't smart enough to be able to lead an organized invasion of Earth. *shakes head smiling* They're just too derpy.

What a great imagination some people have. This theory sounds like a cartoon movie for kids.

I have a cat and this might be true he is definitely the weirdest animal I've ever seen. Plus what is with the kneading? Maybe they are sending secret codes.

Oh so that's why Manx Cats don't have tails (they are probably aliens that caused a disaster in the isle of man in the 70s). Cats are not aliens they are cute animals, but annoying if they attack you I suppose.

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

Should be number 1! I'm not saying he doesn't, but it's certainly very debatable and nobody can prove it so far.

That's literally just a belief how is that a conspiracy theory? - Sync

17 Cthulu is Real

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

Oh boy, there is no wage gap for these reasons. 1) we live in a capitalist society, and a company's goal is profits, so paying women apparently less would lead to men being jobless due to it. 2) there is a wage gap, but it's completely different from what feminazis claim. A man typically works for nearly 50-60 years, while leaving the work force for sometime I.e. Vacation time or doctor appointments o for But a woman gets to leave for, marriage, having kids, doctor appointments, vacation etc. So in the long run, women get less in total because they can get longer free days then men. And 3) Many high paying jobs requires a good degree, many men go for classes related to these jobs. Most women? Gender Studies, a useless unnecessary class most women go to, and as a consequence, get lower paying jobs - Zombieguy2006

There is no gender wage gap it's just feminists spreading rumors cause they think they should get payed just because they go to work. These feminists don't understand they have to work but feminists are lazy. There is no gender wage gap. - tacoperson

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.

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 Hollow Earth

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

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

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

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

If he was still alive, we wouldn't be having the bullcrap music coming out today. - Mcgillacuddy

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

34 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.

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

This is scary and very, very wrong.

I'm in it

38 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
