Alien lizards rule world . . . and other conspiracy theories
Queen Elizabeth and former president George Bush are actually shape-shifting alien reptiles who rule the world. Parts of the world not ruled by reptile aliens are run by a secret organization known asplease pick onethe Illuminati, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, the Trilateral Commission, the New World Order or Yale's Skull and Bones society. Conspiracy theorists also argue that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were orchestrated by the United States government, the Apollo 11 moon landing was actually filmed in a sound stage on earth, and even more aliens creatures are alive and well in Roswell. And the list goes on . . .
"Conspiracy theories" have been around for most of history: the idea that some group is engaging in secret activitiesusually world dominationthat the rest of the world knows nothing about. Except, of course, a small group of people who know the truth but are viewed as delusional.
Charles Pigden, in Conspiracy Theories and the Conventional Wisdom, argues that "the reality of such conspiracies should caution against any casual dismissal of conspiracy theory." He notes that the plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, the existence of the Mafia, the Watergate burglaries and the Iran-Contra affair were once written off as conspiracy theories.
So, some of today's top conspiracies include:
President Bush, Royal Family actually alien lizards
Christine Fitzgerald claims Princess Di confided in her that the Royal Family were "reptilian aliens, and that they could shape shift." Another source alleges that former president George Bush is also one of them. David Icke, a former BBC reporter, is sold thousands of books claiming, "that humanity is actually under the control of dinosauroid-like alien reptiles who must consume human blood to maintain their human appearance."
Area 51 secretly houses aliens and their spacecraft
And where did these lizard people come from? TV's The X Files claimed, "The truth is out there," and the "truth" is that the secret Air Force base exists for, and I quote, "the storage, examination, and reverse engineering of crashed alien spacecraft (including material supposedly recovered at Roswell), the study of their occupants (living and dead), and the manufacture of aircraft based on alien technology."
The Illuminati rules the world
Rather than alien lizards, others claim the world is ruled by members of an ancient cabal know as, again take your pick: Illuminati, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Trilateral Commission, the New World Order or Yale's Skull and Bones society. Believers point out that each of these secret organizations actually exist and that President George Washington was a Mason.
Scientologists rule Hollywood
In Tinseltown, Scientologyitself a conspiracy theory weilds the power. Scientologists believe Xenu, an alien ruler of the "Galactic Confederacy," brought billions of aliens to Earth, stacked them around volcanoes, and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. Their souls then stuck to the bodies of the living. Only by spending thousands of dollars on Scientology "auditing" can you get these aliens off your back.
Apollo 11 moon landing faked by NASA
Conspiracists claim the 1969 moon landing was faked with the cooperation from the CIA. Supporters argue that "photographic anomalies" prove it was all shot on a sound stage.
September 11 terrorist attacks orchestrated by U. S. government
Believers claim the World Trade Towers were taken down by a controlled demolition and that no steel building before or since the 9-11 attack has collapsed as the result of fire. Others claim a cruise missile, not an aircraft, crashed into the Pentagon.
AIDS is a man-made bio-weapon
Theorists claim HIV/AIDS was developed by mad scientists either as [take your pick] a bio-weapon or a genocidal plot to wipe out gays and/or minorities. And which mad scientists are responsible. Again, take your pick of the CIA, the US Army or Russian scientists.
My pointand I do have oneis not to prove or disprove these theories. Here it is from the biblical prophet Isaiah:
The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said,
I can spend my time fearing lizard people, secret societies, and UFOs bent on conquering earth. Or I can spend my time trusting the God who created it all and rules over it all. I'll choose the latterand steer clear of Buckingham Palace.
