My Rankings of Absurd Wacko Conspiracy Theories

Exclusive of religious mythology such as Muhammad riding off into the sky on a flying horse Al-Burāq with the angel Gabriel, Jesus virgin birth and resurrection, Methuselah living for 969 years (Genesis 5:27) and others I decided to make a list of the most ridiculous implausible conspiracy theories I hear in order of their absurdity.

  1. The Earth Is Flat
  2. Holocaust denial
  3. David Icke’s idea that the world is run by dinosaur-like reptiles. The Royal Family of the UK, along with the Bushes, the Clintons, and many other rich, prestigious families, are actually man-eating shapeshifting lizard-people from the fourth dimension
  4. Bill and Hillary Clinton had 50 people murdered, and got off Scot-free.
  5. Apollo landing was a hoax
  6. The vaporous contrails left by commercial jets flying through cold air pockets are actually chemtrails which disperse some form of harmful chemical/biological agent/energy.
  7. The assorted 9/11 Theories such as:
    9/11 was staged by the US Government.
    9/11 was staged by the Israeli government.
    9/11 was staged by the Illuminati.
    9/11 was staged by the Rothschilds.
    …and there are many more
  8. Barack Obama is a secret closet Muslim from Hawaii who was synthesized in Kenya for the purpose of ______ (fill in the blank).
  9. Princess Diana and Dodi were murdered
  10. The Illuminati secret society and masons are trying to take over the world
  11. Area 51 exists to investigate aliens
  12. The US let Pearl Harbor happen

The truth is I could put each conspiracy theory on a 3×5 card and shuffle them and probably be happy with any order they came up in as a ranking.
