AddWilson added Religion is kept strong to field armies Religious cries have always been a popular battle cry.  However, countries not driven by religion or military ideology have little means of fielding armies for anything other than self defense.  Thus, much of the world must rely on the religious US and Russia to deal with large international problems.

Phantom Time Hypothesis is listed (or ranked) 88 on the list The Conspiracy Theories You Believe Are True
AddWilson added Phantom Time Hypothesis The dark ages didn't  happen.  The years ~600-900 A.D. were added when switching to the Christian calendar from the Roman calendar.  Tons of rulers during this period were all named "Constantine", there is exceedingly limited historical info from these "dark ages", and the conversions between the Calendars all point to 300 years missing.  It was a conspiracy started by the Church and several rulers.  Charlemagne either didn't exist, or was over-blown as a reuniter of the Holy Roman Empire.  Thus, the Roman empire never totally fell, and Christianity was always a Roman Empire Theocracy and never evolved independently through feudalism.  (Perhaps even Marx's ideas of feudalism exploits this same mythology?)  Also, the Church benefitted because they could claim that Christ's message was 300 years more ancient than it was.  Perhaps they started doing this early on after Christ's death...  The Council of Nicea was supposed to be in 325 A.D., thus putting it in ~25 A.D. for example, opens the possibility that Christ's legacy was planned centrally by Roman power brokers.  The official theory is written by German historian Heribert Illig; it really stirs the imagination.

AddWilson added Woodrow Wilson overthrew the Russian Republic

While US involvement in the Russian Revolution is largely censored, what little gets through implicates the US back the "white" Tzar side.  This is counter intuitive ideologically: Woodrow Wilson was a champion of Democracy over Monarchy. (More-so than any other modern President.)  What is clear is that WWI's allies were involved in a large way since 1914.  The line between WWI and the Russian Revolution is obviously difficult to draw.  However, the "Allies" actions against the Red Army were strong enough to fuel anti-capitalist opposition in spite of aiding Russia as a whole in WWI.

 By 1917 native Russians had largely deserted the white army.  The Tzar's provisional government was FIRST FULLY REPLACE BY THE ALLIED BACKED KORNILOV WHO SET UP A MILITARY DICTATORSHIP!!!  Kornilov was commanding a number of allied troops!  Thus, the allies helped move Russia from a Republic to a Dictatorship.  The allied-backed dictatorship was totally unsupported by native Russians, and was used to fuel the beginnings of Communist Russia's anti-Capitalism ideology which lasted for decades.

It's more history than conspiracy.  However, US involvement in the Russian Revolution is consistently generalized as WWI, which is a genuine cover-up.  The US did fight in the Russian Revolution on the White side.  The historical incident is known as the Kornilov affair, but the questions of the planning behind it to create a revolution makes it a conspiracy worth considering.
