Everyone loves conspiracy. It's a simple fact of human nature that we must assume that there is some greater plot or meaning behind pretty much every event in human history. Hell, I love conspiracy theories and, let's face facts, so do you!
However there are some conspiracy theories, and when I say some I mean most, which are a little too wild. Clear signs of insanity with access to the internet.... which is also a conspiracy if you didn't know (world wide web, WWW. W is the 23rd letter, 2x3 = 6. 666. Ergo the internet is actually a demonically possessed creation of Lucifer himself).
In my travels across the net, I have happened upon may outlandish theories. Here are a few of my favs...
Back to the Future... A fun action packed adventure through Time or something a little more Sinister?
People look for conspiracy in everything, movies being no exception.
Back to the Future is one of my all time favourite films. The formula was simple, young kid with a crazy scientist for a friend ends up 30 years in the past, meets up with his parents and nearly prevents his own birth. The effects were fab and the script was awesome. It's an automatic BluRay purchase.
However, the Conspiracy community seems to believe that BTTF contained so many hidden messages that it would have been simpler for Steven Spielberg and Bob Zemeckis to have simply called the firm "Conspiracy Central". Everything from Grey Aliens, Illuminati messages and even a warning about 9/11 seems to have been embedded in the film series.
Here are two of those videos.... the extent to which they draw their conclusions is impressive.
Pretty Much Every Denomination of the US Currency Contains Hidden Messages
Money is generally at the root of most conspiracies (either that or some ruthless New World Order plan to enslave humanity). However, did you know that money itself (the actual physical note) has been the focus of many conspiracy theories. The US dollar is usually targeted by conspiracy theorists, and to be fair some of the theories are quite entertaining. I wonder if those responsible for the general design of the dollar actually have a competition to include as many hidden references as possible (now there's a job I'd love... I'd stick "Where's Wally" on the $1 bill).
I've linked two videos on this one. The first is rather outlandish with multiple references to 9/11 predictions (basically fold your notes like a copy of Mad Magazine and whoooo scary references). The second is one of my favourites, these are actually images hidden away on a standard $1.
2012 London Olympics... and the Illuminati?
At the expense of billions and exposure to the entire world (live), it seems that those wacky Illuminati lot have been at it again by hiding messages within the Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies. At least that's what the hardcore Conspiracy community believe.
Everything from the floodlighting to the Olympic mascots have been linked to some strange Illuminati symbolism. It really is an entertaining watch. I wonder if the organisers hadn't have included so many hidden messages if the opening ceremony would have been over in 5 minutes.
The Simpsons... and the Bloody Illuminati Again?
They've been at it again?? The Illuminati have apparently infiltrated Matt Groening's prized TV show and splattered the world for decades with subliminal messages. The all seeing eye is a frequent visitor to the show, as are mysterious hand gestures.
I seriously doubt we have much to worry about from the Illuminati camp, I mean they spend so much time putting hidden messages in TV shows and movies that they can't have much time to plan the New World Order.
The sad fact for many is that these Conspiracy theories will stay just that, theories with no real foundation. We'd like to believe that there is some greater mechanism working away in the background and that there are secrets around us just waiting to be discovered.
The sadder fact is that it is usually terrible world events which seem to attract the majority of these nonsensical theories. 9/11, the deaths of Diana and JFK, even the loss of MH370 have been the source of so many crazy theories, each one designed to be more fantastic and unbelievable than the last.
