20 Bizarre Conspiracy Theories And Their Origins
Everyone has heard one or two conspiracy theories – and every single one has been fairly strange, but people always wonder if it could be true. The fact of the matter is that anything is possible, but the list below contains 20 of the absolute most insane conspiracy theories. This list includes holes that lead to other worlds, a coffee company that plans to take over the world, and a time period that was apparently completely fabricated.
Saddam Hussein Had A Stargate
An internet theory claims that the only reason President Bush invaded Iraq was because he discovered Saddam Hussein had a “stargate”, which allowed instant travel between different parts of the universe.
It’s claimed that American forces targeted the device, which was hidden in a secret base near Al-Ouja, because Hussein was helping aliens use it to invade earth. The same website that came up with this conspiracy theory also claimed the Iraqi dictator was simultaneously breeding giant mutant scorpions.
Jewish Coffee Infiltration
According to some people, the woman featured on the Starbuck’s logo is biblical Jewish heroine Queen Esther. The figure is actually a siren that was taken from a 16th century Norse woodcut and is most certainly not a Jewish attempt to take over the world through coffee. Safwat Higazi, an Egyptian minister, went on Egyptian TV and adamantly declared: “This queen is Queen of the Jews. Can you believe that in Mecca, Medina, Cairo, Damascus, Kuwait and all over the Islamic world hangs the picture of Queen Esther and we buy her products? It is inconceivable!“
Lizards Rule The World
Former BBC presenter David Icke claims that the entire planet is being controlled by “dinosauroid” aliens that pose as humans and hold leadership positions across the globe.
He also believes that these creatures must eat human blood and flesh to keep up their own human appearance.
Obama Is Intentionally Spreading Ebola
According to the conspiracy theory website “Infowars”, Obama is “perpetrating the conditions” for a major Ebola outbreak by opening the southern borders and allowing infected citizens back into the country. They believe that once the disease spreads beyond control, groups such as FEMA, the CDC, and NORTHCOM will come in and start taking away people’s guns. This plan is only somewhat less absurd than Obama building a giant magnet to collect all of the guns in America.
