My fav conspiracy is one that's everywhere I look.

It's the one where an unsuspecting public is, by way of government legislation, religious institutions or corporate means, led to believe they 'need' something that they really don't or, inversely, don't need something they do.

We're daily sold pigs in pokes.

We are controlled by our masters and sleepwalking into confusion and debt.

Whether it's an expensive car programmed to break down, clothing to 'make a statement' or whatever... the only way out of this is to buck the trends and run the risk of being sidelined.

That's not a conspiracy though. It's human nature. No overarching plan behind it, just people taking advantage of it.

I disagree.

When oil companies/automobile manufacturers, etc., conspire to set prices, I believe it is a conspiracy.

And that's just 2 examples of it.

My favourite conspiracy theory is how many conspiracy theories are set up by the conspirators. I wonder how much true research effort has been wasted on red herrings.

The Ufo/alien conspiracy is by far my favorite. There is so many insane views and theories on ET that its just mind blowing.

And in the end I can promise you that half of this crap that people have built up about aliens is gonna turn out to be complete bull#.

My favorite? hmmmm.... How about the one I am dealing with right now.

The commodification/privatization of our water. I wouldn't say this is my favorite but it is the most relevant to me right now.

As for a true favorite; any real conspiracy that can be backed up with some, even if circumstantial, evidence.

Playing connect the dots with different conspiracies is also an interesting past time. Seeing how far things are interconnected can be scary.

Ooohh, this is a tough one.

If I have to pick one, it would be the John & Robert Kennedy assassinations. They are the ones that really got me started on the whole "conspiracy theory" trip (it's one that never ends).

I've actually been to Dallas twice and still haven't gotten to Dealey plaza because of business duties......GRRRRRRR

Reptilians are my favorite. I love those videos on youtube! Hours of entertainment. Who knows, could be real! I still can't believe people put so much time into the video editing..

I have to say that currently, I am all about reptilian government leaders, the Queen's master plan, and what chemtrails will drop in diff parts of the nation.

My first post in ATS ive been a long time reader tho. In a thread like this ill post in others there's simply to much stupid comments around

Anyway my favourite theories are hollow earth. My friend has visited the place on an astral voyage (no drugs no nuthin). I'm also into the reptilian theorie although u get allot of crap with that.

But by far the greatest conspiricy is what you can achieve in a spiritual way...

Mind control of American citizens, to me is fascinating.

yup, me too. Most fascinating topic IMO. If you are interested in mind control, look into NLP as well (if you haven't already).

The Grand Conspiracy.

Personally, my favourite is the fact that gas, car, and tire companies conspired to build Los Angeles so as to maximize the amount of cars/gas/tires that would need to be purchased just to live here.

Most entertaining conspiracy theory has to be the crazy world of David Icke. Shape shifting reptillian royalty takes the cake. I also don't know whether to laugh or enraged about the way he willfully misinterprets historical writings, is frighteningly credulous of ancient writers (Herodotous in regards to the Saka, Herodotous also states that the scythians have skulls no thicker than eggshells that you can easily crush with one hand!) patently untrue assertions, and disregards the believable aspects.

I am also curious about why he is able to basically print the same thing over and over again under different titles.

Sorry, went into a slight rant there. He really does wind me up.

My Favorite one is the 911 conspiracy, because you can see lot of clues that it was something planned...

Conspiracy I hate the most or I do not believe at all is the Hollow earth one...

I'm not sure if "favorite" is the right word, but I've got more than one that have cost me way too much time without any resolution.

JFK might be #1, just because it was the first one for me. Followed closely by the UFO/Alien topic. My dad and I used to get into some real heated debate on that one. He was from the "It's all delusion and natural phenomena" school. I'm from the "No, there's something else going on there," opinion.

Also the Jonestown Massacre, with a local connection for me given Jim Jones was a local guy. So was Dan Mitrione (Google him up) and there's something else going on there, as well. Although at this point, it looks like not many people even care about that one any more.

The other one that fascinates me is the Knights Templar. What did they uncover in Jerusalem that got them so much power? Stretching from the 11th Century up through the Cathars, Rosslyn Chapel, Rennes-le-Chateau, Freemasonry, there's a whole lot to try to comprehend.

And at the risk of being repetitive, if you haven't read Jim Marrs' Rule by Secrecy, you should. It's a veritable Encyclopedia of conspiracy, with a huge bibliography for further investigation.

My favourite has gotta be the Oak Island conspiracy...

just what is at the bottom of that shaft?

YES! That's one of my favorites as well. I wonder if anyone will ever get to the bottom of the shaft? Who put it there? (assuming there is indeed something at the bottom of the shaft). I doubt we'll ever know.

I'm also intrigued by the hollow earth theory. I don't believe it, but I'm fascinated by the idea of another civilization living under our feet.

Must be the Moon conspiracys, hollow earth and the 2012

So interesting reading what people think.

i wouldn't call this my favourite conspiracy theory-------i'm afraid that it might be true that the web artical i saw about bushes family being of nazi origin and being germans might be true and that the position they hold right now is being used to deplete our finances and ruin our economy and get us weakend to the point that when the nazis do it again with ww3 we wont be able to get in their way to stop them-----------------i hope i'm wrong but how else do you explain some of the irrational ? steps the bush administration is taking? 1.talking about tightening the border to mexico yet persecuting those that get in illegals way-----doing nothing about mexicos armies incursions into the southern states as their army escorts drug runners-----preparing a super highway for mexican truckers.2saying they support israel but forcing her to give land to murdering terrorists3saying they battle terrorist states like syria yet supplying them with our technology--------------pres. bush appears more to be concerned about a german led eu taking over as the next world power than he does about sustaining the usa dominance.i personally am convinced he is the present day king of the north found in daniel 11:40-45 and think either he or his german successor will complete these last verses of daniel 11

First, I find it interesting to note the breadth of topics that interest ATSers. It would seem that conspiracies abound.

I have some interests in the Vatican Bank Scandal --Ambrosiano conspiracy. This conspiracy or, rather, collusion between the Vatican, the Italian Mafia and the P2 Lodge clearly demonstrate that there is a lot of "grey" areas in the Catholic Church. I have an added interest in that Bishop Paul Marcinkus, the head of the Vatican Bank at that time, was a family friend.

I am interested in Secret Societies such as the Nazi links to a rather esoteric background involving the Thule Society and other metaphysical -- "magic" -- groups. I have some strong beliefs that Nazism was far more than some political party. In my mind, it was (and is) a religion.

Additionally, I am very interested in the political conspiracies of the Vatican. When the Vatican II altered the very character and nature of the Church, I recognized that some "strong forces" were at work to destroy the very fabric of this religious organization. It's an area that never ceases to interest me.

Finally, I am interested in finding the historical roots behind the people and organizations that, for all intents and purposes, control the people and social structures on this planet. Some might take this to mean the Illuminati, the NWO and the New Age Movement. Yes is my answer. But I am also interested in various aspects of global control ; the global system of royalty and the control that monarchs still exert, religions (Catholic and otherwise) and those who control the financial structures. My own personal take is that there is far more than meets the eye in these areas.

Finally, but certainly not the least, I have become increasingly intrigued by the possibilities that aliens (intergalactic or inter dimensional) have communicated with governments and, in the process, have been shaping the social structures of global societies. While not a "UFO buff", per se, I am intrigued by the increasing body of evidence that such "other-worldly" beings not only exist but have influenced our planet over the span of our history.

Of course, I am interested in a lot of different areas and that interest can be easily piqued in a variety of topics and areas.
