For me, it was in the 60's and Martin Luther Kings assassination. Its the 1st one I remember. Looking further it was the Kennedy brothers, and the lone "gunmans". (Sirhan and Oswald). Im curious to know when folks remember their 1st awareness of conspiracies in this world, and just when amd which one(s) that was for you?

I was born Catholic, and raised Catholic. Went to parochial school. My first conspiracy was the Roman Catholic Church, and organized religion in general. My mother still grieves because I am lapsed lol. I was a teen, and a sexually active one. I asked my mother for the pill, and asked her why it was a sin I would burn in hell for to take birth control? She explained that the pills are an abortificant. I told her until the pope pays for my babies I will take the pill. And I did.

That set me on a path towards religious research, and now almost thirty years later, I am still searching.

Don't know if it counts as conspiracy but my first was Sitchin's Annunaki story and Von Daniken's stuff on aliens and it was in the early 90s.

I was just a kid, probably sometime just before 10 years old, when I learned about the JFK assassination and even then it didn't seem right to me. Probably watching the X-files it was did me in though!

Probably the 'paranormal' and the vast conspiracy of science. It all fell like dominos after that.

1974 I think, i remember there was a president under fire for something....onto the conspiracy.
I get out of bed and what do i see?
A fat man dressed in red putting out presents, nope!
It was my Mom, no santa not even a dern red suit!
Crushed i was, lied to outright!
My Mom helped me write notes to santa in hopes of a sleigh ride and all!
Helped me bake cookies for him and generously use my Mom's favorite cup for his milk for said cookies!
Next morning my Mom explained to me there were alot of babies born this year at her work, she was an ObGyn nurse so i believed when she told me santa was simply in a rush.
I was good with the OS pushed by the PTB.
I then explained to my friends at school that my Mom was one of Santa's kind of helpers.
The older kids laughed at me and said Santa was a myth.
I bravely defended Santa and his honor, dern near got in a fight with a 5th grader.
I think i would have won, but that is neither here nor there, the win would have been for hollow reasons under false pretents.
I came home and explained the days dealings to my Mom.
She then sat me down as I guess she figured she should come clean and save me from an unjust war.
She explained that Santa was a lie but a good lie as we get goodies and presents from said holiday.
Since then, nothing has been the same, i later put 2 and 2 together and realized if Jesus's bday was based on a lie, his death must be also.
The Rabbit died i guess you could say.

1st conspiracy, early 1980's, a man invents a carburator that gives him 90 miles a gallon driving. Ford buys it from him and it dissappears.

Zecharia Sitchin and Area 51, his theories reach wide and far beyond the western world......I remember reading his theory about "pyramid might be built by E.T. in Vietnamese published sometimes in 97......and I became aware of Area 51 in 98.

JFK for me. I recall an HBO special I think called something like On Trial ; Lee Harvey Oswald. Kind of a mini series or a couple of episodes. Wow must have been in the late 80's. But I recall being consumed with the information presented and it help me to look at things with a little skepticism.

** As a side note, I still flip flop on the depth of the conspiracy (if any) and over the years after becoming proficient with rifles and visiting Dealey Plaza last year- not for that reason but had to see it, I am certain of how easy a shot it would have been. ( geez, if didn't really like saying that for some reason)

I remember hearing about Watergate when I was 4 or 5. (Yes I was a freak and loved the evening news) Of course they didnt call that a "conspiracy theory" they called it "news."

But it definitely laid the foundation for me that power corrupts and politicians will abuse their power.

For me, I had an intense interest in the NWO/One world currency/One world government from as young as the age of 5. I remember asking my mother to talk to me about it in lieu of my bedtime stories. lol I was a weird kid. It's one conspiracy I am adamant that exists.

Other than that, it would be the JFK assassination. As a young teen, it was the movie 'JFK' that made me first hear about it (although I understand a lot of the conspiracies mentioned in the movie were just Hollywood spin).

I was about 10 years old, would have been about 1979 or 1980. My aunt gave me a book called, interestingly enough, Above Top Secret, all about the alien coverup conspiracies, told me to make sure I read it, and that "you need to know about this stuff". I read it, and have been interested ever since.

My biggest interest personally is in the massive coverup / conspiracy that appears to be being undertaken by the archaeological community, covering up the fact that there is too much about the accepted version of human history that simply doesn't make sense, according to the historical record and accepted archaeology.

Now, you may ask, why was this aunt so significant to me? She wasn't at the time. However, about 6 or 7 years later, I found out through my mother that my Aunt Lenna (all I really knew about her was that she would answer ANY math homework questions you could come up with) worked at Bletchley Park during World War II.
She knew Alan Turing personally, and "did something" during the war that is under a "forever" publication ban, My mother (who had power of attorney over her affairs) tried to find out what she did and was told that the information would NEVER be released and could not be obtained even through a court order.

Now, many records from World War II are under a 50 or 100 year ban, but very few are under a "forever" ban.

When my aunt passed away, she requested a burial at sea in her will. My mother approached the Royal Navy using Lenna's name with an inquiry as to how much a sea burial would cost. She received an IMMEDIATE reply (within an hour). Three days later, the Royal Navy sent out a frigate with a full honor guard of officers and crew in dress whites, fired a naval gun salute, and buried her with full honors, completely free of charge.

They still won't say what she did, other than it was "something of incredible importance to the Royal Navy".

Now, Bletchley Park was where they decoded Enigma signals and developed the first modern computer systems. I've always found it interesting that someone who was involved in top secret work with the development of the modern computer told me to make sure I knew about the alien coverup.

Ditto, I was five when that was all anybody was talking about- it made it impossible to ever trust authority, the office of the president involved in sleaze, AND it was exposed! I also thought everybody had had it with war, after Viet Nam. The rah rah USA crap was over. What happened?
