#atozchallenge -C for Conspiracy Theories

Confession time.  I am really into Conspiracy Theories. I mean, seriously, is there anything more delicious than a fabulous conspiracy to capture the imagination?

Given the choice between a fantastic yet plausible conspiracy and a dry yet logical cover story, I will always be drawn to the conspiracy.  Always. #truestory

One of my favorites is the enigma of Area 51. Then there are the messy cow mutilations, mysterious crop circles, the staging of the moon landing, and the persistent debunking of the JFK single bullet theory, to name a few.

There are lots of Conspiracy Theories surrounding celebrities that are interesting and rather dark.  There is the “Paul is Dead” Beatles hoax, and a theory that Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in the late 1960s and was replaced by a lookalike. The Elvis sightings since his death in 1977 to suggest he is actually still alive. Other faked death rumors follow Tupac Shakur, Andy Kaufman, Jim Morrison, and even Michael Jackson.

I’ve read about theories suggesting that Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, and Bob Marley were killed by the US Government.

There are creepy ones about man-made diseases, the lucrative business of medical research how it is too much of money maker to ever actually produce cures. Ah, there are so many conspiracy theories and I LOVE THEM ALL!

I’d love to share more details on each of these theories, but I’ve got to be careful… Big Brother is Watching. *puts on foil hat and snuggles in with my boy Joaquin*
