Conspiracy Theories People Still Believe in 2018Lifestyle The List
Even in 2018, people are still clinging to downright-bananas conspiracy theories. Like, "The Illuminati is real!" or "The Government is hiding information about aliens from us", or, "You have to separate your laundry before washing it" (yeah, right). So, in today's Buzzlist, Teresa Strasser is taking a deeper look at some of the craziest conspiracy theories that are still believed in, even now.
3. The Earth is Flat
Look, if you know someone who's actually willing to argue with you that the earth is flat, do yourself a favor and just walk away. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
I will give Flat Earthers this: Yes, sometimes when I trip and fall down, I too wonder why I don't just roll off the sidewalk, since the earth is round. But, at the same time, I also know that globes exist, as does gravity, and, I'm pretty sure my 5th grade science teacher wouldn't have lied to me about it.
2. The Lunar Landing is Fake
This one has been a favorite of weird conspiracy theorists for years, but became popular again this year, thanks to a YouTube video gone viral. But if you really think about it – like, really think about – do you know how much work it would take to, not only stage the moon landing, but then swear everyone to secrecy and make sure that none of them talk to anyone about staging it it? It's hard enough to keep government emails in the right places, let alone keeping a giant government cover-up about our country's history.
1. Bigfoot is…Real?
Even with all the new high-tech conspiracy theories popping up, one theory remains – the one and only, Bigfoot. People are still calling in reports of sighting the creature, even as we approach 2018. And yes, people are still hunting for him as well.
But, guys, maybe the wildman is just hiding because he doesn't want to be found and is tired of being "the monster everyone seeks". I mean, he still gets out to make those Jack Links Beef Jerky commercials right? Maybe he's just chilling in a penthouse in LA or something…
