The Most Widely Believed Conspiracy Theories in US History

Conspiracy theorists: Call them birthers, deathers or just plain conspiracists, but don't call the people who believe the most widely believed conspiracy theories in US history gullible. These people will argue up and down that NASA never landed on the moon, the 9/11 and Pearl Harbor attacks were allowed to happen by the US Government and that President Barack Obama is actually from Kenya. Ther are a number conspiracy theories thrown out there, but these are the ones people seriously think exist.

If these theories sound crazy, they are only the tip of the iceberg (or another frozen object if you're a global warming conspiracist) of the craziest conspiracy theories presented in modern times. Hours of time and numerous thousands of dollars have been spent to publicize, prove and debunk these conspiracy theories that deal with everything from alien autopsies at Area 51 to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

What's next? Is someone going to claim that Santa Claus is not real?

    9/11 Terrorist Attacks

    f t g r p @
    Some people (occasionally known as "Truthers") believe that the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2011, were actually orchestrated by the United States government or a group other than al Qaeda. Believers of the conspiracy theory argue that the World Trade Center's Twin Towers fell and continued to burn in the aftermath in a way that suggests it was a controlled demolition.

    Others argue that the United States government was aware of the attacks prior to the event and allowed them to happen by declining to intervene. This theory was mentioned in the Michael Moore documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, especially the idea that then-President George W. Bush was briefed on the plans of the attack and chose to look the other way.
