Whether you're religious or not, it's intriguing to consider the numerous proven and rumored creepy Vatican items. No one outside of the pope's inner circle is likely to ever see many of these artifacts, although you can see a few strange things in the Vatican during your next trip to Rome. The pope could choose to clear up dozens of conspiracy theories, but in most situations, the Vatican appears to prefer ignoring many of the oddest rumors and merely denying others. Of course, this doesn't mean that none of the theories would hold up to closer scrutiny. Perhaps that's exactly why the existence of most of the reputed weird Vatican objects has never been officially denied.
Are the rumored items real or merely imaginative conspiracy theories? Either way, they're entertaining, and they just might provide a glimpse into the secret life of the Vatican. Read on to discover which ones you think are the most likely to actually exist.
Evidence That Jesus Christ Never Existed
If you were the pope, what's the one secret you'd need to guard above all others? One conspiracy theory posits that the biggest secret in history is that the Vatican contains proof Jesus never existed. There's also a rumor that the exact opposite is true, although it doesn't make much sense that the Catholic Church would go out of their way to hide evidence of Jesus.
After all, if they could conclusively prove his existence, their churches would probably experience a huge increase in membership.
Skulls Of Extraterrestrial Beings
A conspiracy theory that's gained a lot of traction involves the Vatican covering up the existence of aliens. Supposedly, one of the Vatican's numerous renovation projects uncovered the buried remains of extraterrestrial life. An excavation crew discovered these skulls in 1998.
Some claim that Pope John Paul II knew all about the aliens and agreed to participate in a massive conspiracy to hide the truth. Where's Mulder and Scully when you need them?
The Illuminati's Records Of World History... From The Future
The Illuminati and conspiracy theorists go together like macaroni and cheese. Therefore, it's only natural that the Illuminati supposedly controls who holds most official Vatican positions. After all, this would enable them to exert an even greater level of control over the world, and it would provide them with access to the Vatican's secret objects.
One particularly interesting theory states that the Illuminati has stashed records in the Vatican that pertain to future events. If the Illuminati actually had this power, they'd be able to see what's going to happen without human intervention, meaning they allowed Hitler's rise, countless human deaths during natural disasters, and even the crazy things that have happened since the election of President Donald Trump.
A Chronovisor That Enables People To See The Past
What would you do if you could see the past and even take pictures of it? For the pope, apparently, the answer is "not much." At least that's what's suggested by the rumor of the chronovisor. Some believe this device actually exists and that one of them resides hidden in the Vatican.
The Catholic Church could easily use a chronovisor to prove the existence of Jesus. Therefore, this rumor is either nothing more than a myth or the Vatican has a reason to sit on one of the greatest inventions of all time.
