Credible Conspiracy Theories
Review your project details
To find interesting and credible conspiracy theories for personal interest reasons.
Preliminary research show there are many conspiracies with a kernel of truth that make them more credible than others. Five interesting conspiracy theories that could be true follow.
GOVERNMENT MIND CONTROL
There is a conspiracy that the government is trying to
control people's minds
While this "may not be true on a large scale, there is
that the government" has at least attempted in the past and may still be attempting to control their citizens' minds.
There was a
top-secret behavior modification
program called MK-ULTRA that was run by the CIA between 1953 and the late 1960s.
It involved LSD, hypnosis, and shock therapy in an attempt to develop a "
" or psychological weapon that would convince people to do the government's bidding without their knowledge.
Operation Midnight Climax
was another such program in which the CIA would have prostitutes give LSD to unsuspecting clients who would then be observed from behind two-way mirrors.
Although the CIA
in the late 1960s, the theory exists that this was just the tip of the iceberg and that the government is
still trying to control minds,
now using genetic engineering and infrared beams.
There is a conspiracy that the government is
and continuing to look for more.
This conspiracy is very
, especially since as recently as 2011, the government has had active programs that were looking for aliens.
Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program
was a five-year initiative that received nearly
in Department of Defense funding to amass "video and audio recordings of potential UFOs."
There appears to be one recording of a "
surrounded by a glowing light." In the audio recording, the pilot says, "there’s a whole fleet of them."
The official word is that the program was
terminated in 2012
after the DoD determined there were other programs that were higher priority.
In addition, some people associated with the program said they didn't find
anything of substance
However, other sources, such as
, one-time head of the program, say the program is still operational despite the lack of funding.
The department continues to "
investigate UFO reports
in tandem with their other departmental duties,"
SHAKESPEARE NEVER LIVED
This conspiracy theory relies on the idea that one man, an "
" could not have produced all the works credited to him.
It has existed for more than
and although Shakespeare experts disagree, it is still possible that Shakespeare is actually many people.
HITLER DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE
This conspiracy refutes the common belief that Hitler
died by suicide
in his underground bunker.
The FBI has declassified documents that the dictator actually lived out his life in
Argentina and then Brazil
In an effort to hide, he "changed his name to
and had a relationship with a black woman whose name was Cutinga."
JIM MORRISON STAGED HIS OWN DEATH
who saw Jim Morrison's dead body was his girlfriend, and because supposedly died from heart failure at such a young age, some people believe he actually faked his death.
The keyboard player for the Doors, Jim Morrison's band, even wrote in his memoir that "Morrison
went to the Seychelles
" to live out a peaceful life away from the rock and roll lifestyle.
