Whoo boy, I've got quite a list.
-Creationism. Unlike most conspiracy theories, this one has done lasting harm to America's education system. All of the evidence - not just in
biology, but in geology, astronomy, and physics - points to the evolution of species, including humanity, and a very old Earth. Simply put:
creationism is not science. Neither is intelligent design, for that matter. Yet almost half of the United States population believes it. The
"conspiracy" angle comes in when you hear people like Ben Stein saying that the "secularist scientific establishment" is suppressing evidence that
goes against evolutionary theory. It just makes my blood boil whenever I hear people like Sarah Palin and George W. Bush promoting this garbage.
-Anything involving the Jews (Protocols of Zion, Holocaust denial, etc). Don't get me started with how vile this is. If it weren't for creationism,
this would be on top of my "most hated" list. All of the organizations promoting this are racist groups (white supremacists, Black Power) or Muslim
extremist groups, or are connected to said groups. This alone should give you some indication as to the agenda that is behind this disgusting
-Satanism. Yet another one courtesy of the Religious Reich. Like the aforementioned theories, this one has ruined countless lives. From the witch
hunts of Salem and the Inquisition to the "Satanic panic" of the late 20th century, hundreds of thousands of people have died or became outcasts as
a result of getting hit with the tar brush of Satanism. Today, this manifests itself as the belief that an underground network of devil-worshippers is
kidnapping, abusing, and in some cases sacrificing children. In some of the more extreme versions of the story (like Alex Jones' version), the
government and media help to cover this up, as they are controlled by the devil-worshippers. In most cases involving "satanic ritual abuse," the
suspects were found innocent, yet their lives were still ruined by the allegations.
