What is the strangest conspiracy theory you've heard of?

Was it even stranger that it seemed like it could be true to you or was it just plain wacky?

Here's one of my faves-

7.Kentucky Fried Chicken Is Owned by the KKK! Fast food chains seem to get a lot of bizzarre theories attached to them. For instance, it’s long been claimed that Domino’s Pizza supports an anti-abortion group, and that Fanta was invented by the Nazis. But the story about KFC takes this brand of urban legend to a new level, probably because of the sleek Southern gentility of its spokesperson, the ‘Colonel’ Sanders. Legend has it that Colonel Sanders wrote a will that went into effect after his death in 1980, and that one of the clauses in this document was a demand that 10% of KFC’s profits be turned over to the Ku Klux Klan. Others go right to the source, and claim that the current owners of KFC are a secret front for the Klan itself, and so that (largely defunct) racist organization gets a majority share of the profits. The truth is that KFC is owned by the Yum! Corporation, which also owns such brands as Pizza Hut, Long John Silvers, and A&W. If they are a front group for the KKK, then they have a lot of people fooled!

For me

People who believe that females should be priests.

I think thats the weirdest one, and people who do not understand the church.

My wackiest is that some people actually think humans can cause climate change. How self-righteous, sanctimonious and self-promoting do you have to be to believe that something so insignificant can damage the climate of a planet.

As far as KFC, Kentucky came up with a great idea to raise more money....trademark the states name and charge royalties for its use. Just like any government revenue raising plan....it failed, because now no company will use Kentucky as part of its name and Kentucky Fried Chicken is now called KFC. Even Neil Diamond's song "Kentucky Woman" will never be played on the radio again because he refuses to pay royalties to Kentucky for it.

Any H1N1 conspiracy that claims it was anything more than a cash grab for the who and it's cronies.
That's a conspiracy I believe to be true. you can even tie the media into it. Not seeing much mass death going on.
My dad got the h1n1 shot. He's had three ehart attacks, drinks, and has been smoking for45 years. If it didn't do him in, then meh.
Not a big fan of 2012 either.

Mine is more of a gripe about Power Elite comments.
People always write it off to TPTB, the Elite, the Globalists, the NWO. That's not necessarily wrong but I dislike when they allude to a ultra-powerful group nobody ever knows about. Sure some ultra-wealthy like privacy but most have to show their face sometimes. They do exist, Bill Gates, Bernanke, Rothschild's, Walton family- they do exist.

The craziest theory I ever heard, and many people believe this.
Humans on Earth, are the only intelligent form of life that exists in the entire Universe, that there is nothing and nobody beyond this Planet.

Also I could never grasp the Creationist view that the World is only 3,000 years old? or something very close to that, I am not trying to knock any faith, I just find that hard to grasp, that they actually believe that to be true.

And the thought some have that when the Governments put up a camera, or invent a way of spying, that it is intended for them, because they have some obscure point of view that has TPTB worried they can bring them down.

And those who base their entire logic of Physics on a theory, IE: Einsteins THEORY of relativity, for some his theory is Gospel, and have a hard time grasping the meaning of the word theory.

Call me picky, but I do find those I mentioned as extremely weird, based on the debates they produce anyhow.

The KFC and the KKK link reminds me very much of the Macdonald's and the donation of 1 penny from every sale donated to the IRA, there are a ton of stories the same, U2 (the band) rumored to do the same, and the 70's irish group the Nolan Sisters doing the same had me spitting coke all over my monitor, gave my chuckle muscles a good run for their money.

Actually the view is more like 6 -7 thousand years .
That's my understanding of it anyhow

OH! OH! OH! - I got one or two.......

Giant humanoid changing tires on his space ship on the surface of the moon. The other would be the skulls and extensive(?) biological artifacts still on the surface of Mars. (skulls, aliens pointing to the sunset in the distance...)

My favourite one - The toys you get in cereal boxes are actually secret Government listening devices used to spy on the population.

I like the Iran is a misunderstood country that has peaceful nuclear ambitions. The average people there yes, the government no. Running close second is the whole Obama b.c. craziness. I've made it known I don't care for him and his agenda, but the b.c. thing is way off in my mind. [I do think he is hiding something from his past but I am inclined to think he is a citizen]

Here's another favorite-

The early Middle Ages […] never occurred. Everything that supposedly happened during those years was either a misunderstanding, an event from a different era, or an outright lie […]. And we are actually living in the 1700s.

My views are my own and are in no way meant to upset those who believe in what I think is the biggest, wackiest, longest running and most war causing conspiracy.......namely religion.

The craziest one is when people tell me that the government is there for the people and our votes got them elected to serve us.

Another good one that gets me splitting my sides with laughter is the story where money grubbing pseudo scientists with a bag of degrees and no common sense allow loads of industrial by-products to go into pastes and then sell it to us to swill around in our mouths on the understanding that it is actually good for our teeth and our brains. What’s a little poison to cross the blood brain barrier and wreck the pineal gland oh my. Fluoride with your baby food little one, can I kill you softly my dear?

It’s not as if we need to think clearly for ourselves because our government even fights terrorist and brings about a new age of fear and apprehension and they do this because they care – Ha-ha I’m dying here.

The two dumbest were right here on ATS.
First, the one that prompted me to register: That WW2 never happened and was faked.
Second, that nuclear weapons don't exist.
Both are stupid beyond belief!
