I found the entire list and the lead up to it,giving our top 3 then voting for a top three from the most popular a fantastic idea. I really enjoyed being involved and its very pleasing to no that we were all involved with this. I to will join DIGG to help pass the message on and urge the rest of you to do so as the subjects we are interested in are gradually starting to seep through into the mainstream and public conciousness and anything we can do to further that can only be positive! Also ,with subject matter like this getting into the press and mentions on T.V more and more, as time goes on we are looking less and less crazy to others and dont have to supress our opinions for fear of getting carried off to the loony bin or ridiculed. Brilliant idea ATS,keep up the good work.S and F.

No.7 is not a conspiracy but a fact of near future

Good list good read

Great list with well-written summaries!

The 2012 bit at number 7 is baffling - isn't that just
in the realm of fantasy? Believing that future events
are 'known' by some is pretty naive, but feeling that
we are not told the truth about current and past events
is plain common sense.

Lots of reasons to be suspicious of the Moon Landings,
but as it's a matter of national pride you can see why
it doesn't rate highly. Not too much real proof there,
of course, just a feeling that the technology of the
time wasn't even close to being up to the task. Fry
me to the moon.

But! Why isn't the 911 fiasco at the very top? The
most important conspiracy of them all; find out the
real truth behind that and let the revolution begin.

More polls please!

A bit puzzled in the No. 10 conspiracy — I'm not saying there isn't a "shadow government," because there certainly is. But I'm surprised that so many theorists erroneously believe this is a new development, attributing it to the Bush administration. I mean, if the Bush administration proved anything, it was that they couldn't organize the traditional government, nevermind a shadow government.

The shadow government of the USA dates back to the founding of this nation, and many of our most esteemed presidents have acknowledged it — Jefferson, Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and even Franklin Roosevelt publicly spoke of the existence of sinister and subversive entities actually controlling the fate of our nation. Which is rather ironic, inasmuch as FDR's administration undermined the Constitution, planted the seeds of American socialism, and contributed more power to the shadow government than any other administration in the 20th Century.

Also, I'm not really sure that the shadow government even qualifies as a "conspiracy theory" anymore, for it's not even operating in the shadows these days — over the last 20 years, it has gradually emerged into broad daylight and is now in the process of demolishing and redistributing America's wealth in full view of the world.

I have to admit I was unhappy with the site for a host of reasons (that seem minor now) but I’m in love with it again and this list. I don’t personally believe in 2012 but I find it really interesting that so many on ATS do so I’ll have to look into it more. Otherwise the list is spot on and many other conspiracies people believe in can be linked to one of the following conspiracies on the list even if it does not directly mention them.

Sometimes I question myself and feel a little insane for being so obsessed with NWO, the Bilderberg Group, and the events that gave us the Patriotic Act, so I’m glad to see so many others also believe something fishy is going on.

If the media at large does not discuss the shadow government and the people generally do not know about it then I think it should still be considered a conspiracy theory. Many people think it started with Bush because the corruption in his administration gained a lot of media attention.

The fact of the matter is that this stuff is still left out of history books. If the history books you grow up with leave this stuff out and the media that surrounds you pretends like it didn't happen then it seems to me that those are things in history the government wants to re-write and forget about, or cover-up- giving us a conspiracy.

wow - i really thought the fluoride conspiracy would have made the list... i consider it almost #1 because it would change the behavior of those who intake fluoride, for the better...

maybe it'd be easier to "wake up" to other conspiracies, and help us to take more action against those that rule us, if fluoride was taken out of our water supply...

maybe next time...

I totally disagree with this list, it is dumb. How can you separate shadow government from NWO, and how do you separate area 51 from the UFO cover up? All those things should be merged. Also, every time I saw a post, it mentioned the moon 'landing', yet not even a hint of it, on here.

i slightly agree, because many things on the list to choose from could have been merged into other categories... like, the international bankers, shadow government, Bilderberg group, and NWO should have all been in the same group...

and again, FLUORIDE DIDN'T EVEN MAKE THE TOP 10!!!

HOW CAN YOU SEPARATE SHADOW GOVERNMENT FROM NWO

For the most part, the "US Shadow Government" and the "New World Order" have been relatively distinct concepts only until recently (10-20 years).

The bits-and-pieces discovered about the behind-the-scenes national security maneuverings and influence represented by the US Shadow Government have been mostly directed toward the selfish imperialist goals of the US of the previous century. It hasn't been until the Bush administration (and to some extent the previous Clinton administration) that the speculated activities of the US Shadow Government took on globalist tendencies.



AND HOW DO YOU SEPARATE AREA 51 FROM THE UFO COVER UP?

Given the role of Skunk Works and other advanced technology research at Area 51, it's clear that extraterrestrial technologies are a sub-set of what is believed to happen at Area 51. There is indeed some crossover, I believe there is more that is different than there is in common.




ALSO, EVERY TIME I SAW A POST, IT MENTIONED THE MOON 'LANDING'

It was in the final list of 35 conspiracies offered up for voting, but did not make it into the top-10.

I agree that shadow government should have been merged with 'new world order', but that hardly makes this "DUMB".

As for Area 51, it is a military base. It has nothing to do with the UFO cover up. The only link the two have is the link people have created. Personally, I think there is nothing special at Area 51. If there was we wouldn't know the base even exists.

The moon landing isn't very interesting, and I think the votes reflected that. If the landing was faked, technically it is a conspiracy. But there just isn't much that is interesting about it. So they faked a landing on the moon and the wrong country got credit for being the first. That's as deep as the rabbit hole goes with this one, I'm afraid.

This is not some site conspiracy to push the topics we find most interesting or relevant my friend.

These items were voted on by the membership of this site as a whole.

If that many people felt that certain topics should have been merged, or shouldn't have been listed separately, then they shouldn't have voted for them separately.

Just my 2 cents, nothing more.

The collective "Spidee Sense" is something to pay attention to. This might put things into a planetary order of importance where the whole of the human organism is concerned.

In the future we will dissolve nationalism and be a species in contact with itself. The NWO will not work if we stay collectively connected in our group mind-heart-spirit.

Then some day, hopefully within our lifetimes we can have a NHO (New Human Order) where the devisive powers are squelched by the collective mind of heart-connected globally aware and compassionate intelligence we where meant to be.

There will be no reason to trick or force people into the path of the greater collective we are by birthright. It will be everyone's personal decision to be with everyone else. Not with the flesh-chipped, managed, consumerist herds the NWO want us to be.

Now do we see the power of collective mind? ATS might be a perfect example of what we need as a neuron-net for the natural compassionate creative explorers we truly are.

My focus is on #2, but that is me, one cell in the human organism.

Great experiment! Now, how can we use this in our best interest?

Is this the next question to put to the group?

Everybody should Digg this thread. There's 109 flags and 96 stars. We should have more than 28 Diggs. We're on page 29 of the 'Most Diggs'. If we want people to see a real conspiracy theory top-10 list we have to flag it more.

The top Digg right now has 206. We can easily pass that.

DIGG!!!

Interesting poll ATS, with a really interesting outcome, my compliments for all the work.


Personally I was a bit surprised about the tenth place conspiracy theory.

10 The United States Shadow Government.


Only 2.60% of all votes.
