I would say the ones with the most evidence are the CIA introducing crack to Black neighborhoods and the exploding cigar assassination attempt. I think these two are possibly true. All the others are very far-fetched. Look up Gary Webb and his series of articles for the San Jose Mercury News for more information about the CIA's possible role in the crack epidemic. I know less about the exploding cigar, but a quick Google and Wikipedia search reveals divided opinion among historians and journalists about it.

While I don't believe that the Rothchilds are single-handedly "conspiring to create a new world order", I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find that they are members of the Bilderberg Group, which meets annually to thrash out the world's problems. The idea of the European Union was first promulgated by this Group way back in the 1950's.

The Epstein one is too early and murky to say. The others are all either absolutely or almost certainly false, with the cigar thing maybe being the most plausible but still most likely false. Soros and the Rothschilds do definitely exert influence in various ways around the world, but neither anywhere near to the extent that conspiracy theorists allege.

What reason is there to believe that the one about Mary Magdalene is almost certainly false? It seemed a bit odd on the other quiz that it was considered "stupid" to believe that Jesus got married to someone he is described as at least having met (and had children whose descendents are still alive today; this also doesn't seem too far-fetched since it must be true of a great many people of the time), while believing that he was there at the beginning of the universe (which many more people believe) wasn't even mentioned.

just a lack of any evidence or precedent. I mean you could make up anything and say that it was true because I can't prove it false, and that whatever story you made up is possible; that doesn't make it true or even likely. It's not impossible. It's just not likely. Also many of the arguments that proponents of this theory make are just inaccurate. For instance, they like to say it's inconceivable that a rabbi would not be married, but there were many rabbis around this time that practiced celibacy. Especially among those waiting for the end times.

The Mary Magdelene one is implausible because there's no documentation in any account of his life of Jesus being married, because if he were married there's no reason to believe that it would be to Mary Magdelene, and because there is a precedent of Jewish preachers from Judea being unmarried, like Paul and the Essenes. If Jesus were married, that would be incredibly significant and someone would have written it down at some point. Contrary to what Dan Brown will have you believe, none of the non-canonical gospels that we have contain any reference to any marriage Jesus had, Mary Magdelene or otherwise. Further, there's no reason to believe it would have been covered up to "preserve his divinity", as people like Abraham, Moses, and David were all married and the gentiles would be accustomed to worshiping pagan deities, many of whom were very sexual. Jesus being married can't necessarily be ruled out, but it's not any more likely than, for example, John or Philip being married to her.

Epstein was definitely murdered, or threatened(knowing his time was near). Come on, Folks. The day before he dies, court documents are presented with a list of famous people on them. His clients were not low class johns. We are talking about Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, governors of states, politicians, Hotel owners, financiers, fashion designers, Royalty, etc. LOL Then, this federal detention area with the most high profile prisoner of the year is being run by the Little Rascals? One of the guards was someone who wasn't a regular officer, and no one seems to have any real reason why cameras, procedures, and guards suddenly change and Epstein dies????? Get real....The guy was too well documented and connected to major elites. He could have rolled over on everyone, and the court proceedings would have been quite damning, as if we don't see enough already. He is a major pervert and has a sex island, and all these people are friends of his or riding on his planes. Yeah...ok.

Why is it the most ardent conspiracy kooks always mention Bill Clinton when they talk about this story, but not Donald Trump? You think it's more likely that Clinton, a guy who has been retired from politics for decades, had Epstein killed than the current president of the United States. Between the two Trump had more to lose, more influence to exert, more documented cases of criminal behavior including the sort that Epstein was known for, and closer ties to Epstein. But, whatever.

And I'm not saying that Trump had him killed, either. What's so implausible about the suicide story? The guy had a good run. Had a lot of fun and a pretty crazy lifestyle. Made lots of high-powered friends who got him out of trouble once. But this time he knew he was done and would be trading his sex island paradise for a small jail cell, after sitting through a humiliating trial and then going to prison to be abused, sodomized, and likely murdered by the other inmates. Good time to check out.

It's not clearly explained indeed, but most of the alternative explanations are fake and stupid, and that's the point of the quiz, I think. So much has been said... I would say there was probably another shooter, the way JFK's cranium and brain exploded does not match the normal bullets of Oswald's sniper rifle. Apart from that, I don't know. The theory of the tired CIA bodyguard is interesting but nothing can be taken for granted.
+3
level 77
Sep 26, 2019
numerous different people have replicated the event with a single shooter, resulting in the same or very similar results, with live rounds and lifesize recreations, miniatures, and computer models. Remember the whole JFK (ridiculous conspiracy theory film by Oliver Stone) denouement was the protagonist in court repeating over and over and over "back and to the left".... as if that was slam dunk proof that the fatal shot must have come from the front and to the right? Well... try it. It doesn't work that way. If a bullet goes clear through something like a human head, with a hard outer layer but full of goo inside, not that much energy is going to be transferred to the head via the initial impact. The huge exit wound on the other side belching forth ejecta? That's going to send it flying back in the same general direction that the bullet came from, dependent on whether the bullet's collision with brains diverted its path or not. Physics proves the conspiracy theories wrong.
+1
level 78
Sep 26, 2019
Of course the exit wound is nastier than the entry, but I was not talking of the trajectory but the size of the wound. A well-aimed sniper bullet can of course kill somebody, but make his head explode like that, well I don't know... Anyway, that doesn't really matter, the only important fact is that JFK was indeed killed that day.

okay, first of all, it's an absolutely 100 percent proven fact that the CIA, at the direction of the executive branch, introduced crack cocaine to black communities. Freeway Ricky Ross did 14 years in prison after the feds set him up, before Gary Webb exposed the operation and its connection to Iran Contra in a series of damning articles. Webb later died of two gunshots to the head, which was stunningly labeled a "suicide." as for the rest, i don't know a single person from any corner of the entire political spectrum who buys the official Epstein narrative. myself included. 9/11 was absolutely, 100 percent, dead nuts an inside job. if you don't think so, you either haven't been paying attention or you're being willfully ignorant. the Rothschilds have absolutely dominated a large portion of global events literally since the 17th century. there's extensive reporting on this, with mountains of irrefutable evidence.

The towers fell down because of the planes. Some say a building can not collapse so vertically without being controlled, but it's dumb. Because of inertia and gravity, when a floor breaks, it falls on the next, which breaks, etc, it goes on like dominoes, with increasing intensity until it becomes chaotic. That's what happened with the WTC : clean at first, chaotic near the ground. Ask the people who were fleeing in the streets if it was a clean collapse... there was debris everywhere in Manhattan and many near buildings have been damaged. As for the attack itself, it is as real as it could have been prevented... maybe Bush was stupid and/or Cheney machiavellian, but several agencies, including the CIA and the French secret service, knew something big was being prepared. The risk was just minimized and the terrorists could do their thing... a big waste first of all.

level 77
Sep 26, 2019
yeah that whole "it fell into its own footprint" meme is such complete bunk. And so easily refuted. Just look up some aerial photographs. But there was debris from the WTC recovered over a huge area. (the kooks will say that this is proof that the tower was rigged with explosives, it's not, try slamming a plane traveling at hundreds of miles per hour into something as tall as the WTC and see how far it travels before it hits the ground) There was so much debris from the WTC in fact that did NOT fall in to its own footprint, tons upon tons of steel and concrete and glass, that the all of this material did serious structural damage to nearby WT7 which is probably part of the reason that building collapsed. Just get on Google you can see photos of the roofs of other buildings all over New York with debris from the towers on top. And yeah Bush did not take the threat from AlQaeda and bin Laden seriously enough and he bears a lot of blame, but saying he planned it is just dumb.

Sep 26, 2019
It doesn't even make logical sense. The kooks say that it was part of a fabricated reason to invade Iraq. But look up the news from the week before September 11th. Republicans were already planning to invade Iraq and already trying to cook up a rationale. 9/11 had nothing to do with it. If anything it DELAYED the invasion of Iraq, because they had to go to Afghanistan first. And there was no reason for them to want to invade Afghanistan. If 9/11 was an inside job trying to give us a rationale to invade Iraq, then why were none of the hijackers Iraqi? They were mostly Saudi. Not a single Iraqi or Afghan. Why blame it on the Taleban and AlQaeda who have no ties to Iraq? Why not just blame it on Hussein? These theories are so stupid they just make no sense whatsoever.

I saw an interview with one of the designers of the buildings who said that the impact of the planes was not what brought down the towers. They had designed the buildings to withstand an impact of that magnitude. What they failed to factor in was the temperature of a lot of burning jet fuel from planes that had just been refueled before they crashed into the buildings. That intense heat is what caused the supports to twist and fail. He said it was one of those things they just didn't think about when trying to consider any and all potential problems. (I have no idea if this is true, but it made sense to me.)
+1
level 77
Oct 24, 2019
The impact of the planes alone definitely would not have caused the towers to fall. What it did do was severely damage some of the support structure inside the towers, including knocking off much of the fireproofing that the internal steel skeleton was coated with as well as damaging fire suppression systems inside the building. The jet fuel exploded into a giant inferno, but the fuel itself burned out quickly. However, the massive fireball created by the crash of each plane ignited all of the paper, furniture, carpeting and office equipment inside the buildings which continued burning at very high temperatures for hours. Conspiracy theorists point out that such a fire would not be hot enough to melt steel. That's true. However, it would be hot enough to significantly reduce the strength of that steel, minus fireproofing, and once the steel became too weak to support the enormous weight of the towers, they collapsed.

They actually came close with the milkshake but the waiter who had been brought on board to put the poisoned pill in his drink messed up.

+1
level 61
Oct 24, 2019
They're similar but not the same. Crack is diluted with chemicals to make it cheaper and smokable. Cocaine has been around a long time, but I think crack first showed up around the 70's and 80's, and the theory is that the CIA pretty immediately start distributing it into black neighborhoods. Because crack is so much cheaper, it's much more common in low-income communities than cocaine, which is more commonly associated with wealthy people who just can't think of anything to do.

I think it’s possible that he killed himself. He was a billionaire who always got what he wanted. His previous stint in prison was a walk in the park due to his corrupt dealings on the inside.

Doesn't the 9/11 theory go that it was BOTH planes and demolition explosives?

There are many different mutually contradictory but often simultaneously believed 9/11 conspiracy theories. In general, though, they attribute the destruction of the WTC to demolition charges planted inside the buildings. Some of these crazy people believe that planes were flown into the buildings (they differ on whether these were the actual commercial aircraft lost that day or not), some believe that these were just holograms, some believe that it was military planes firing missiles at the towers before crashing in to them (I swear I'm not making this up), but in any case I believe the planes/holograms/drones/missiles these idiots believe in were allegedly just a distraction and not the real reason the towers fell.

I am so glad that Al Gore and others have decided to "promote" the theory that the climate changes since it has been doing so for the past 4-and-a-half billion years.

He’s specifically drawing attention to the anthropogenic contributions to climate change, which humans have the power to adjust through our choices. Humans have only been able to seriously impact global climates on a short time scale since the Industrial Revolution, so the past 150 years or so.

I've never heard of anyone arguing that "climate change" is a hoax, since part of the definition of climate is that it changes. The alleged hoax is man-made global warming, which has been switched to "climate change" to distract from the fact that global temperatures didn't increase dramatically, as predicted by global warming "experts" like Al Gore who said NYC would be fully underwater by 2016.

Climate change is the preferred term because it broadens the scope to other human-induced impacts that aren’t limited to rising temperatures. For example, increased drought in plains regions due to humans pumping water from groundwater aquifers at a faster rate than it can be replenished falls under the category of climate change, but not global warming. The term global warming is still accurate, but it is more limited in scope and thus has fallen out of favor (especially because environmentalists like to talk about climate change in terms of broad interdisciplinary impacts).

The CIA may not have spread crack to black communities in the 80s, but they did (somewhat inadvertently) spread LSD to the hippy communities in the 60s through the MKUltra mind control program.

MKUltra was pretty messed up and not a conspiracy theory.

Yep, not a conspiracy theory, but is instead a conspiracy fact. Sad knowing that the American intelligence agencies are likely to never get in trouble for their crimes against humanity.

Good ethics seemed to be a foreign concept to most researchers from the 1930s on through the 70s. It's shocking the stuff they got away with not just in the United States but all over the world.

Many of these are quite true, or may very well be possible. The official 9/11 story is full of holes, and even many respected people close to the events have never had their questions answered fully. The Saudi involvement was hidden and redacted, and we invade Iraq/Afghanistan, when the vast majority of key players were Saudis. JFK was definitely killed by an organized group(he had many enemies). The Clintons are always surrounded by death and corruption(but somehow come up innocent). Cocaine and LSD certainly had govt. involvement, and the elites run the drug trade(Opium Wars, if you don't believe me). FDR should have known about Pearl Harbor. The Climate Change hoax is a cult, with the purpose of more taxes and global control of industry. Rothschilds and Soros are very real, with obvious influence, and the NWO is on our money and talked about openly by elites. The news media is mostly a joke, and corporately controlled, and the academia is an echo chamber. Do your own thinking...

Good name choice, btw.

The 9/11 story is not full of any holes. Every question asked has been adequately if not fully answered, but every conspiracy theorist ignores those answers. The government of Saudi Arabia was not in any way involved in the attack, though bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia, his father was a wealthy Saudi businessman, and most of the hijackers were Saudi nationals. None of this information was hidden or redacted or you and I wouldn't both know about it. Why do conspiracy kooks always believe that whatever anonymously authored schizophrenic's blog they found on 4chan is privy to such secret information that nobody else has access to?
JFK was definitely killed by Lee Harvey Oswald and there were no other shooters.
The Clintons haven't killed anybody and the Clinton Foundation has repeatedly been found to be quite good by charity standards. Meanwhile Trump's family is legally banned from doing charity work in New York due to fraud. Biased much?

Indigenous Bolivians have known about the coca plant for over a thousand years, and the stimulant in the plant was first isolated by scientists in Gottingen. What did "the government" have to do with that? Do you mean the government of the Austro-Hungarian Empire which brought the leaves back to Europe?
The Opium Wars were a pretty sad chapter in British history. What does that have to do with the CIA, crack, or LSD? Other than I'm sure they're all connected in your head as "the elites."
Should have?
Climate science is well established. You've been brainwashed by corporate elites (gasp, how ironic) into believing otherwise, because it's good for their pocketbooks.
alright I'm done this is getting progressively more and more ridiculous.

Calling climate change a hoax doesn't make it so. Climate scientists overwhelmingly agree that it's real. I really do not understand this notion that a bunch of brilliant people spend years getting advanced degrees in science, then undertake (or allegedly fabricate) painstaking research, publish it for peer review, and undertake a public information campaign all in the name of serving some anonymous globalist corporate masters who want to raise taxes. Even if you ignore the overwhelming and demonstrated evidence of changes to climates around the globe, how can anyone seriously believe that all the nerdy kids who tinkered around the chemistry lab in high school put their considerable talents to use in service of higher taxes. And that whoever masterminded this conspiracy managed to get to pretty much every climate scientist all over the globe to participate. That is one hell of an accomplishment.

don't forget they've also convinced themselves that, between the fossil fuel industry and Big Solar Panel, somehow the former has less money to throw around and less influence to exert on politics, the media, and the entire planet's various universities and research organizations. They're just the little guy underdogs bravely trying to get the truth out in the face of the irresistible combo of Al Gore's boundless charisma and his Power Point savvy. Makes perfect sense if you don't think about it.
