Area 51 is my favorite. It's interesting to look at the place with Google Earth.

My favorite is always the old "there was no moon landing, it was all staged by the government on a soundstage" one. (see the film Capricorn One, which to my knowledge is the only major film spawned by this theory)

It's not a new theory - look up Martin Bryant (Australia) and Thomas Hamilton (Scotland.) Same theory was put forth regarding them, especially Bryant. (Neither of these is regarding the United States, either)

Wow, the Denver airport is just plain weird! Who in their right mind would include such murals in a normal design?

All I can say is wow. The artwork is such a strange choice for an airport. There has to be more to this...
Conspiracy Theory w Jesse Ventura did a show about this. Was a little melodramatic, but had some good points.

Simple, juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust enough of them have proven to have substance (even when that substance is nowhere near as big as suspected) that it stirs curiousity going forward.

Personally, I think a lot of it begins with shoddy reporting. Once the intial story is debunked, people start wondering how many lies are being told - even if it's not lies, just bad intel.

Oh, and I find the theories surrounding the Fast & Furious scandal interesting.

All you have to do is look at all the hoaxes people post and re post, and never fact check, to understand why people buy into these conspiracies.

I think people also like the idea of a major entity like a government being involved in terrible occurrences. How could Kennedy possibly be killed by a loser with a rifle shooting out a window, or Princess Diana die in a mere car accident. It's attractive to many to believe there is something larger and more sinister at work.

Conspiracy? Heck, I'm pretty sure that's Monsanto's mission statement!

Personally I don't believe in many conspiracy theories, as they are generally very easy to debunk and almost always very obviously put forward to advance an agenda that is equally obvious. I do, however, think that the assassinations of JFK, RFK and MLK were linked and likely orchestrated by the mafia in partnership with elements from the military industrial complex. That doesn't mean that I don't think they were shot by the accused shooters, but just that I think they were linked and were, more or less, murders for hire.

I think people can't believe that something awful is a random event and thus could happen to anyone going about their daily lives (JFK, 9/11 or Sandy Hook) so it is more comforting to think there was an evil master plan in place.

The Denver Airport one is weird. If you were really building a Secret bunker under the building, why install art pieces and floor tiles giving clues to it's existence.


Here's another reason the people from the website think the bunker is there:

From the webpage -
UPDATE BY LEO: President Obama was in Denver Sept 27th last year when Comet Elenin passed by the earth, “barely missing” us by 22 miles. Some say, that if the comet would have struck earth, it’s back to the stone-age for us. Nonetheless, their was a chance that it could have hit and President Obama was conveniently ushered to Denver… which, in my opinion, adds more to the existence of not only a military bunker, but also the largest, most advanced bunker in the US -because the President wouldn’t go to some half-*** bunker if there was a threat of complete world destruction. Just sayin..

22 miles? I think they meant 22 million miles. Can't say that is barely missing us.
