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*

  1. Conspiracy theories are fun to read about. I don’t know if I’d believe but I’m with you on loving to hear about them. I’d so visit Area 51 if given the chance as well.

  2. I love conspiracy theories. My husband is a nut for them, too. The film Conspiracy Theory with Julia Roberts and Mel Gibson is really good!

  3. I love conspiracy theories. I listen to a couple of people on the radio from time to time who discuss them. The Paul is dead one is one of my favorites.

  4. I hate conspiracy theories.

    I believe that they generally originate from people who distrust the government(a good thing) but then shoot themselves in the foot by running with a half-baked premise and a staggering lack of evidence.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

    PS: Had typos in my previous comment!

  5. Such an original post. There must be some underlying truth to some of those things, even if it simply came from a germ.
    Now you have me hashing over any others I may be aware of. Great topic for today!

  6. I enjoy reading about conspiracy theories (I was fascinated with the “Paul Is Dead” one for awhile), but I don’t really buy into them. More for entertainment purposes only. :)

  7. Conspiracies are a great way to create tension in your writing! Good post. I’m stopping by from the “A to Z” challenge and I lok forward to reading more from you.
