Conspiracy theorists: Call them birthers, deathers or just plain conspiracists, but don't call them gullible. There are many, many people who buy into these popular conspiracy theories, which is why they are the most believed conspiracy theories in US history. 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. There are a number conspiracy theories thrown out there, but these are the ones people seriously think are true.

If these US conspiracy theories sound crazy, they are only the tip of the iceberg (or another frozen object if you're a global warming conspiracist). When it comes to the craziest conspiracy theories presented in modern times, these ones top the list. Hours of time and thousands of dollars have been spent to publicize, prove and debunk these conspiracy theories in American history 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?
