Saddam Hussein Had A Stargate
An internet theory claims that the only reason President Bush invaded Iraq was because he discovered Saddam Hussein had a “stargate”, which allowed instant travel between different parts of the universe.
It’s claimed that American forces targeted the device, which was hidden in a secret base near Al-Ouja, because Hussein was helping aliens use it to invade earth. The same website that came up with this conspiracy theory also claimed the Iraqi dictator was simultaneously breeding giant mutant scorpions.
Jewish Coffee Infiltration
According to some people, the woman featured on the Starbuck’s logo is biblical Jewish heroine Queen Esther. The figure is actually a siren that was taken from a 16th century Norse woodcut and is most certainly not a Jewish attempt to take over the world through coffee. Safwat Higazi, an Egyptian minister, went on Egyptian TV and adamantly declared: “This queen is Queen of the Jews. Can you believe that in Mecca, Medina, Cairo, Damascus, Kuwait and all over the Islamic world hangs the picture of Queen Esther and we buy her products? It is inconceivable!“
Lizards Rule The World
Former BBC presenter David Icke claims that the entire planet is being controlled by “dinosauroid” aliens that pose as humans and hold leadership positions across the globe.
He also believes that these creatures must eat human blood and flesh to keep up their own human appearance.
Obama Is Intentionally Spreading Ebola
According to the conspiracy theory website “Infowars”, Obama is “perpetrating the conditions” for a major Ebola outbreak by opening the southern borders and allowing infected citizens back into the country. They believe that once the disease spreads beyond control, groups such as FEMA, the CDC, and NORTHCOM will come in and start taking away people’s guns. This plan is only somewhat less absurd than Obama building a giant magnet to collect all of the guns in America.
There Are Irritants In The Ingredients Of Carmex Lip Balm
People continue to claim that lip balm maker Carmex includes bits of fiberglass in the ingredients, tearing up your lips and requiring you to apply more lip balm. This theory has been proven false easily, many times, but fans of the conspiracy claim Carmex is covering up the testing of their product with bribe money.
Chemtrails = Death
In 1996, a conspiracy theory surrounding the trails left behind by aircraft began to circulate. The theories claimed that these chemtrails were actually harmful chemicals planned to make humans less intelligent, weaker or less healthy. The Air Force, however, continues to deny these claims.
The Dark Ages Never Happened
This theory suggests that the period between AD 614 and 911, known as the Dark Ages, is either dated incorrectly or just never happened. Developed in 1991 by German historian Heribert Illig, this theory claimed that there isn’t a lot of evidence that dates back to the Dark Ages.
Monster Energy Drink Is Subliminally Promoting 666
Monster energy drink has become one of the most-purchased energy drinks in North America, with its advertising of a super shot of energy for high adrenaline sports and activities. However, some people believe that this beverage is secretly promoting the Mark of the Beast in its logo.
Some blogs and websites have noticed that the logo is very similar to the Hebrew letter “Vav”. In the Hebrew alphabet, every letter has a corresponding number and Vav’s number is 6. Therefore the three Vavs in a row form 666, which is the Biblical number of the Beast. Religious believers claim 666 will be the official number of the Antichrist in the end times, so clearly, Monster energy drinks are promoting Satan.
