History's Greatest Conspiracy Theories

By Phil Plait | November 20, 2008 8:44 am

The UK newspaper The Telegraph has an interesting slide show of their pick for the top 30 conspiracy theories. Before you ask, the Moon Hoax rated number 4.

I have not heard of many of them, and some shouldn’t even be on the list. Roswell is there, but not UFOs in general. And please, chemtrails? This is one of the lamest CTs of all time, along with crop circles. Feh. But it’s rather fun to read them all in a row. People believe funny things.

Tip o’ the tin foil beanie to James Oberg.
