1. We never made it to the moon?!
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon.
Since then, the United States has put men on the moon six more times.
Yet conspiracy theorists insist none of this ever happened, believing instead that the lunar landings were nothing more than an expensive plot involving elaborate film sets executed under the creative direction of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.
A full 11 percent of Americans either have their doubts the lunar landings actually happened, according to a 1999 Gallup poll, as reported by Time.
Forget the moon, if you believe the news, a human mission to Mars is no longer a sci-fi fantasy. But what problems would we need to overcome? And should we even try?
2. Princess Diana was murdered?!
On August 31, 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales was killed in a high-speed car chase in a Paris tunnel.
Her driver, who was drunk, was reportedly trying to elude the paparazzi – the makings of a tragedy.
That hasn’t stopped the conspiracy theorists.
Since even Diana herself believed she was being targeted for murder, it’s easy to understand why people continue to doubt the accident was actually an accident.
Certain “Princess Diana facts” when examined more closely simply are not “facts” at all – take a look at 12 of them!.
3. JonBenet Ramsey is still alive…and making pop music?!
The horrible death of JonBenet Ramsey – strangled to death at the age of six in her own basement – is a murder that will likely never be solved.
Perhaps it helps some people deal with this sad news by choosing to believe that she was never killed.
Conspiracy theorists believe not only is JonBenet alive, but that she’s living as the pop star Katy Perry.
If you’re on the fence about this one, consider that Katy Perry herself has denied it.
They say the truth is stranger than fiction. Take a look at these 12 crazy conspiracy theories that actually turned out to be true.
