Some of the more famous conspiracy theories you may have heard about over the years include:
Those behind the JFK assassination
The government's involvement in 9/11
The Illuminati and the New World Order
Roswell and other alien coverups
NASA's moon landing hoax
AIDS as a man-made disease
Global warming as a political ploy
Elvis, Bruce Lee, and Bin Laden are still alive
Fluoride and vaccinations are dangerous
Bar coding technology is the mark of the beast
Big brother is constantly spying on us
Some of these ideas are more easily entertained than others. In an attempt to maintain what little credibility I may have, I won't tell you which theories I believe are legitimate. Many people who believe in these theories are immediately dismissed as being paranoid wackos. I'm sure there are plenty of people in that category, but I have become more open-minded over time. Maybe it's from watching so many episodes of the X Files.
My biggest concern is with powerful people who influence politics. I think another less mysterious word for that is corruption. I used to think that there was a big difference in ideologies between political parties and candidates, but I am starting to think they are all just puppets who do the will of the man behind the curtain. By the way, that's not the same person as the man upstairs.
Anyway, even if there are government coverups or secret societies doing things behind our backs, I'm not going to let that ruin my day, at least not until March Madness is over. (By the way I've heard that the Rothschilds and Rockefellers determine the winning team before the tournament even starts).
