Conspiracy theories have been talked about for the longest time, and have become even more popular with the information sources we have at our disposal. If you think about it, it’s actually pretty fun, to talk about things and to question the validity of information that is available to us.
While some people, may find talking about it uncomfortable, there are some that will happily indulge and jump to all kinds of conclusions when it comes to different theories from around the world.
Some may go far, and there are some that are difficult to disprove, and there are some that sound so ridiculous, that it actually weirdly in a way, makes sense. And wait ‘til you see what number one on our list is.

Hello, Youtubers! Today, we will be talking about TOP 7 CONSPIRACY THEORIES AND WHY THEY MAKE SENSE (to some)
7 PRINCESS DIANA’S MURDER
Starting off our list at number 7 is the infamous accident of Princess Diana, on August 31, 1997.
It is definitely one of the most shocking events in human history. It is similar to the death of U.S President John F. Kennedy, that such a beloved figure who was immensely popular around the world could just go in the blink of an eye. Most especially for a royal figure such as Princess Diana. People of royalty pass away due to old age, or a recurring sickness, or eating too much food. Royalty do not often get into car accidents.
It remains one of history’s most devastating accidents. But was it really an accident? Conspiracy theorists love to argue that it wasn’t, that Princess Diana’s death is the result of the political climate of that time.
There are many popular theories in relation to her death.
One of those involves Mohamed Al-Fayed. Mohamed Al-Fayed is the father of Dodi Al-Fayed, who died alongside Princess Diana inside the car.
Al-Fayed has claimed that it was not an accident, but rather an assassination. An assassination that was orchestrated by British Intelligence agencies, with the backing of the royal family.
Why would the royal family want her assassinated? Mohamed Al-Fayed said that Diana was pregnant with his son’s child, and that the idea was incredibly obscene for the British State and measures had to be taken.
Fayed claimed that there was no way that the monarchy would accept an Egyptian Muslim to be the stepfather of the future King, so they had her killed. A potential pregnancy was speculated in the British Media, especially when Princess Diana herself said made mysterious comments about a “big surprise”.
During post-mortem however, it was revealed that there was no sign of pregnancy in Princess Diana’s body. Debunking the theory, however hardcore theorists suggest that the information that was released has been censored and that only the royal family know of the truth.
Which leaves us wondering, on whether or not she was really assassinated.
6 THE ASSASSINATION OF JOHN F. KENNEDY
Next at number six, we have the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
John F. Kennedy, JFK for short, was one of the most well-respected and known figures in the entire world.
He is arguably one of the most popular Presidents in the history of the U.S and the world. The whole world felt a shockwave on November 22, 1963, when JFK was fatally shot in the head, on a car in Dallas, accompanied by his wife, Jackie Kennedy.
It is one of the most heartbreaking and surreal moments in history, as people could not fathom how such a heinous act could befall on the beloved JFK. You can imagine, that conspiracy theories were flying everywhere with all sorts of speculation on to why JFK was murdered.
We all know that it was Lee Harvey Oswald who committed the crime and he acted alone, but some conspiracy theorists beg to differ and would have us believe that there is more to the story than that.
One of the infamous theories is that it was inside job, handled by the U.S Government. Sounds like a horror show doesn’t it? A bone-chilling theory that the Government that JFK was leading, was responsible for his dramatic end. Bobby Kennedy believed that there was a rogue element in the CIA, that eventually led to his brother’s assassination. After meeting with CIA Director John McCone, Bobby Kennedy quickly dismissed these assumptions.
But the public was harder to convince, of course. Much less, conspiracy theorists who are hell-bent on proving to the world that they are right.
Given the mysterious and secretive nature of the CIA, it is understandable that one can question their involvement in the whole situation.
It is suggested that due to Presidents stance on Communism and the Bay of Pigs invasion, the CIA held resentment for JFK and there was a lot of animosity present between the former U.S President and the higher figures of the CIA.
The CIA of course, denies this entirely and they claim while it makes for an interesting plot for movies, it just doesn’t correspond with what happened in real life.
Still, given the political nature of the events, can anyone be absolutely sure of what happened?
5 9/11 COVER UP
At number five, we have something that is arguably the biggest national tragedy to hit the U.S, since JFK was murdered. Which makes it very fitting that it succeeds the JKF assassination on this list. On September 11, 2001, two planes hijacked by terrorists, crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center.
The U.S, seen as the invincible powerhouse of the world, was attacked. At least, that’s how the government wants it to be seen.
Given the confusing evidence in relation to the event, numerous theories have popped up regarding the nature of the so called “terrorist strike”.
The video evidence leaves a lot to speculation, as the way the two towers fell down and crumbled was near perfect and synchronized, which leads conspiracy theorists to believe that the two towers did not fall due to the plane crash.
But rather that it was an inside demolition job. It isn’t the first time we’ve heard of the U.S Government hiding their potential involvement from the public.
Theorists believe that no plane crash could cause the buildings to fall and collapse so perfectly to their own footprint.
Speculation got even wilder as some witnesses claimed that they heard explosions in the building even before the towers collapsed.
Even if the official report claims, that the buildings fell down due to the severe structural damage caused by the planes and resulting fires, theorists suggest that the fire was not long enough (56 minutes) to cause that much damage.
Why would the U.S sabotage their own building, and cover it up to blame another country?
Maybe it has something to do with them waging a war, to exhaust a certain country of its certain natural resources.
Obviously, there are just theories and speculation. Do you think it’s true or too far-fetched? You be the judge.
4 THE DISAPPEARANCE OF JIMMY HOFFA
Halfway on our list with number four, we have the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.
Jimmy Hoffa was a union labor leader, who was widely-known for devoting his life to worker’s rights.
Starting his career in Detroit, he made his way up to through the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the most powerful union at the time. He found success at the Teamsters Union, as he was eventually elected as their president.
What people didn’t know at the time, was that he had ties to the Mafia. He was making deals with the local mob, and he eventually got caught.
After being released from prison, he disappeared at a restaurant in Detroit.
Naturally, people assumed that he was taken out by the Mafia, but Jimmy Hoffa’s body was never found.
Conspiracy theorists think that it was the Teamsters responsible for his disappearance. His scandal and illegal dealings left a bitter taste in their mouths, as they were left to deal with public outrage as well as a black stain on their reputation.
Therefore, they did not want him as their president again and made sure he was out of the picture.
After seven long years of speculation, he was declared dead, and to this day, his body has not been found and nobody knows what happened to him.
There are numerous theories around, suggesting he’s been buried in places like the Giants Stadium in New Jersey.
That however, like his disappearance, remains a mystery.
3 THE MOON LANDING HOAX
At number three, we have one of the most popular conspiracy theories of all time, which is the Apollo 11 Moon Landing Hoax.
The Moon Landing was a historical event, not just for the U.S but for the whole world. For the first time in recorded human history, a man set foot on the moon.
It is considered one of the greatest achievements in human history. And of course, to no one’s surprise, it has been allegedly deemed a hoax by conspiracy theorists out there
How did it all start?
Well, in 1978, a film called Capricorn One was released. The plot of the film involves NASA and its Astronauts faking a Mars landing. The film is considered mediocre, but it gave birth to some interesting ideas.
There was also a television program released by Fox called, Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on The Moon?
Which explained in detail the many discrepancies regarding the famous moon landing. It showed pictures of the moon landing contrasting with the story of the official moon landing.
Why would the U.S fake the moon landing? If you guys can remember your history, there was a massive space race going on between The United States of America and the Soviet Union of Russia.
Throughout the years, the two countries with their prominent space programs had been going head-to-head and were desperate to prove who had the superior program.
Some theorists would have you believe, that the actual moon landing was staged and shot on video, for it to mimic people landing on the moon.
They say that the legendary Stanley Kubrick is the one who directed the apparent “hoax”. Due to the fact that a year prior, he directed “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
People think this theory isn’t likely because it’s a well-known fact that several space explorations involving landing on the moon have launched successfully, since the Apollo 11 space mission.
Or is that what they want you to believe?
2 THE SIMPSONS PREDICTING THE FUTURE
At number two, we have the ever popular tv show, The Simpsons.
The Simpsons is the longest running tv-show in history. It’s hard to imagine a time when there will be no more new Simpsons episodes making their way to our televisions.
The show also has gathered a certain reputation, which has got conspiracy theorists losing their minds.
They claim that the Simpsons have accurately foreshadowed and predicted real events would eventually.
To name a few, the Simpsons have successfully predicted the following:
Donald Trump being elected President, the use of smartwatches, the Ebola virus, Disney purchasing 20th Century Fox, Lady Gaga performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, they even predicted what Daenerys Targaryen does to King’s Landing on the final season of Game of Thrones.
Those are just a handful of predictions that have been foreshadowed on the popular animated TV series.
The creators of the show have debunked this theory, as they have stated that the show has been running for over thirty years.
It is inevitable that some themes present in the show, eventually happen in real life. But it just pure coincidence, nothing more than that.
Maybe they are right, and it’s all indeed a coincidence. Or, maybe they know something they’re not telling us.
1 THE DEATH OF PAUL MCCARTNEY
And capping off our list at number one is what we feel is the most popular conspiracy theory there is.
The Beatles are without a shadow of a doubt, the greatest music group in the history of humanity. It’s not an opinion, it’s a fact.
They were absolutely untouchable in the 60’s and to this very day, you’ll have a hard time finding someone who hasn’t heard of the Beatles.
Apparently, fame and fortune come at a very steep price.
Back in the day, there was a rumor that Paul McCartney died in 1966. The Band in fear of losing their momentum, decided to cover it up, and hire a Paul McCartney lookalike so they could continue with their musical endeavors.
The remaining members of The Beatles felt they owed it to their fans to tell them the truths. So, on their subsequent albums, they placed clues all over hinting at what happened to the real Macca.
To give you a good picture, on the cover of their studio album called Abbey Road, which holds the famous picture of the four of them walking in a straight-line side by side, you can notice some strange details.
You can notice that Paul McCartney is the only one barefoot, and he seems to be out of step with the group.
Or on their album, Magical Mystery Tour, the band seems to be holding roses, all of which are red, except for one member, holding a black rose, and you guessed it, was Paul McCartney.
Fans have even gone as far as playing their songs backwards for hints of any black masking that contain subliminal messages, and in the song “Strawberry Fields Forever”, John Lennon can be heard saying “I buried Paul”.
Of course, the band and Paul McCartney himself, have denied this.
And the theory can’t possibly be true, as nobody is as talented as the great Paul McCartney… or the band just happened to have gotten a very good replacement. This so called “fake Paul”, did end up writing “Hey Jude”.
