There has been a few of these debated of recent in the News section of the forum. So I though I’d make a general thread for everyone to post and discuss their favourite Conspiracies or what ever used to be considered a Conspiracy but now proven to be fact.  I hope this thread will be used for healthy debate and not for people just to rip the piss out of people who post.

Mods: I'd class this as a 'Hot Topic' but I'd understand if it was moved to 'Off Topics'

..................................................................................

I’ll kick us off with a current one, S.O.P.A.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act

Passed by the American Government recently this bill seems to be aimed at censoring the internet in the States. It’ll have a knock on effect on say copyright within Youtube (try posting a link from Youtube to Facebook  and it’ll block it as an example) even though its main target is online Piracy.

This is classed as a Conspiracy now because it’s believed it will be used to sensor the internet meaning that organisations like Occupy for example using the internet to organise mass protests against Governments. We’ve seen this to a certain extent with Twitter banning #Occupy hashtags.

The thing is the 'News' part - and this isn't a particular news story and it wouldn't pre-empt future relevant News thread on individual items.

It's a bit like the general religion threads would go in here

I know it's been debated to death, but I can still see there being more revelations down the line over the Iraq dossier/David Kelly affair... just something about that whole case still doesn't fit together, well to me anyway!

Gotta love a good conspiracy theory, just brilliant things. My new personal favourite:


quote:

Circumcision is the result of a conspiracy by the plutarchical rulers of the United States to reduce male sexual pleasure. As the otherwise lunatic conservative website, henrymakow.com, put it, thanks to circumcision: “The minds of men would be free to study the law or learn war.” America’s ruling class is attempting to protect itself because it knows just how many politicos got into trouble because they were thinking with their cocks.

Apparently all you need to do is type in the word Con5p1racy on the internet and you're flagged up to the CIA, Mossad, MI5, MI6, and the Balamory PD.

And I don't trust that PC Plum.

Here's a good one shamelessly stolen from 'Saltire' over on the News section. Regarding Jackie Gleason and some dead Aliens... also Nixon.
 
http://www.rense.com/general70/gleason.htm
 
"It was a chance conversation one afternoon, back in 1974 in Florida, while Jackie was playing golf with one of his regular partners, President Richard Nixon. Jackie had mentioned his interest in UFOs and his large collection of books, and the president admitted that he also shared Jackie's interest and had a sizeable collection of UFO-oriented materials of his own. At the time, the president said little about what he actually knew, but things were to change drastically later on that same night”
 
Basically it goes on to say old Tricky Dicky picked up his golfing buddy and went to show him some dead aliens… as you do.

I would definitely pay to have David Icke rant at me with his nutty conspiracy theories.

Fuck, this guy makes Spaldron look normal.

Check this out.  It's a guy's write up of his time spent trailing David Ike and how he was accused of being an Anti-Semite because they couldn't believe when he said Lizards he actually meant Lizards and not a secret code for Jews.

Chuck Palanuick wishes he could come up stuff like this!

Interestingly, I have it on reasonably good authority (from a freelance journo mate) that under "normal" circumstances (i.e. when he's just being normal and you don't get him onto the subject of lizards and such), Mr Icke is a REALLY nice, friendly and funny guy.

Out of all the nut ball conspiracies I’ve read (and there is a lot) I still reckon this one is the most believable.

I've heard similar. In fact, I think if memory serves he's mates with Russell Brand (not that that makes you normal!) and he had him on his radio show a few times.
I seem to recall I was suprised at how "normal" he was and a lot of what he said was fairly logical. It's just a shame he ruins it with all the other bonkers stuff. Which I think is a point Russell Brand made to him at the time!

I don't think that counts as a conspiracy.
