I really believed that this project was possible when I last posted about it in February and I still believe it is possible. I am glad to see it
I would love to make an extremely well researched list of conspiracies that are proven or nearly proven to have happened. However, we would have to
be extremely objective if we were to make a valid list. It wouldn't be good for us or for ATS if we throw out a list of wild stories that lack some
really solid supporting evidence.
My goal would be not to merely list popular hypotheses, but to devise a list of solid theories that would currently be impossible to
So let me play devil's advocate for just a moment.
(I don't mean to shoot you down junkheap, I just really would love to make a valid list and so I'm using you as an example.)

1. The government(s) are covering up something regarding UFO's and aliens. (Area 51 and Roswell I guess can fit in as sub-categories
There may be some evidence of this, but in order to include it on a valid list we would have to either
1) prove that alien life existed and that alien craft regularly visited our planet in order to imply that the government is covering something up,
2) we would have to force the government to disclose information, thus showing that there was information that hadn't been disclosed in the past.
We can't do either of these at the moment.
I want a real list. Anybody want to give this a go with me?
And to anyone who believes that the list would fill an entire library, please give me a dozen or so ideas (or even one) with which to start off.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step they say.
The first item I propose is data mining. Nearly all of us are victims. Everyone on the inter-net has access to free software that can uncover the
data mining programs on your computer, so it's easy to prove that data mining exists. Data mining programs do not ask your permision before they
download and run on your computer. These programs take from our computers information that we have not volunteered or consented to give them.
While there are other forms of data mining out there, the kind on your computer is the easiest form to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt.
Data mining is:
1) a subversive act
2) involving corporate action against the public
3) in the US
4) that we can prove is happening.
Now that's the kind of thing I am looking for.
Anyone else got an idea?
