It’s time to put on your tinfoil hats and question whether your government is up to no good! Everyone has some kind of crackpot conspiracy theory that they either believe in, or at least think is feasible. These days it seems like the only people who don’t believe in at least one conspiracy theory are the ones trying to cover them up, but the wool won’t be pulled over our eyes any longer. There are many conspiracies out there that thousands of people still adamantly believe, from 9/11 being an inside job, to the mysterious “Illuminati” controlling everything from the government, to the music played on the radio (you’d think they’d pick better music).
Over the years there have been quite a few conspiracy theories that have surprisingly been proven true: while some of them have taken decades to be exposed, they have provided some much needed vindication for the people brave enough to speak up.
Some conspiracy theories are quite scary, and will show you just how far the government is willing to go to cover up the truth, but which factual conspiracies have shocked us the most? Here are the top 16 shocking conspiracy theories that were proven to be true, and made us all second guess whether there really are Lizard People in the government.
