Where did AIDS come from? The generally accepted origins makes a lot of sense. It's believed that the chimpanzee version of the immunodeficiency virus (SIV) was transmitted to humans when people hunted chimps for meat and came in contact with their infected blood. Once in the human blood stream, the disease morphed into HIV.While that makes perfect sense, there are still those who believe in crazy (and not always so crazy) conspiracy theories and urban legends about HIV and AIDS. The list below contains some of the craziest AIDS conspiracies, including various ideas about where HIV originated. Some of them are completely logical, but others are so out of line you have to wonder how anybody believes in them.
