Again, I don't quite put 'the world will end in 1999' as a 'conspiracy theory'. That is a prediction. A stupid one. But a prediction
Now, the Y2K fiasco could be deemed as a conspiracy theory. One where the software manufacturers stated that if you wanted your computers to work
beyond 2000 you needed a pricey update. I would count that as a CT.
So when you ask for dates in history where something was supposed to happen and didn't I think you are looking more for false predictions and
CTs are supposed plots to have JFK assassinated by members of our own government or the mob and to pin it on one man like Oswald. Or the government
coverup of alien encounters and technology gleened from those encounters.
You will find it very hard to disprove things like that (not saying this is what you are looking for, just a blanket statement in general).
I'm sure there are some out there (some on the tip of my brain but I can't recall them right now probably because once something has been disproven
I usually let it go). We have a lot of true CTers on here that I'm sure can help out.
I'm hoping they can provide a list. But there is a thread, within the last couple months, that shows a LOT of real conspiracies that did take place
throughout history. Ones that our 'history books' try to change up in order to put a better light on the powers that be.
