Hey guys! As you all know, I love researching and writing about conspiracy theories, I think they are super interesting but there's quite a few I have came across that even I (the most gullible human being on the planet) don't believe! Today, I thought I'd do a post on the craziest conspiracy theories that I have heard!

1. Redheads are part-alien.

- We all know that there have been a lot of red-headed rulers. Elizabeth I was a redhead, Alexander II of Scotland and Catherine of Aragon are just a few examples of redheads who made history. If you're like me and are interested in this sort of stuff, here is a list of redheads. So, the theory goes that the amount of redheads that have done remarkable things is very high (reheads only make 2% of the population), so they must be aliens. There's a supposed alien race called Lyrans (I found this page that I have used for the quote) and this says [about the Lyrans] "Their hair was red to strawberry blonde in color. The skin tone very, very fair; these entities had a difficulty exposing their skin to certain frequencies of natural light, due to the planet they sprang from. Some of these were also giant in stature, though there were some who were average human size. Eye color was generally light to what you would now consider green, though it is a different quality of green than you see upon your world. These entities were some of the first Lyran pioneers. (Pioneers is a very kind word, for there are many worlds that consider the red-haired ones to be the invaders, marauders and the basic havoc-wreakers of the Lyran genotype)." Of course there's no proof that I can find to support this theory, but people believe this which baffles me. 

2. The moon doesn't exist.

- Some people believe it is just a hologram, and David Icke has came forward to say that the dimensions of the moon are deceiving, and that it's a spacecraft. This theory is somehow harder to believe than the theory that redheads are descended from aliens, and here is the video "explaining" this.

Another conspiracy theorist claimed that the sun and the moon are just "reflector simulators" to hide the existence of a planet called Niburu. Here is an article about the existence of this planet which is very in-depth.

3. Space Nazis.

* This theory inspired "Iron Sky" which is a comic sci-fi film which tells the story about Nazis who fled to space and they built a fleet to return to Earth in 2018.

There is a theory that states that the Nazis wanted to gain control of space and wanted to travel there, and they were also investigating the possibility of this during the war. Apparently the Nazis were so invested in researching space, that they fled to New Swabia (in the south pole) to research this further and this site states that "Many of the so-called UFO cases in the 1950s and 1960s—including the famous flyovers above Washington, D.C. during July of 1952—were actually warnings by the Nazi S. S. They flaunted their superiority over the Allies aeronautical prowess."

These theories made me stupidly angry and I don't know why, I think it's just because people believe stupid things. I'm always a bit cynical about things, and I don't believe everything I read, but I also do not form beliefs unless there is definitive proof or enough to sway me into thinking otherwise. For example, I believe in Atlantis, because a continent was literally discovered in 1995. So, Atlantis could exist, but there is no proof whatsoever about any of these theories, there is no way that any of these theories could be true and I just find them so hard to believe. However, you may believe one of these, you may watch the David Icke video and thought that he made really good points, I'm not telling you what to believe but personally I don't believe any of these.

I hope you're all having a good day!
