There are a number of conspiracy theories regarding this event. Some claim they were either an inside job or that there was advance knowledge of them among high-ranking officials. Followers of the theory claim the towers were purposefully brought down rather than succumbed to structural failure from impact and fire. An often-cited argument is that jet fuel from the impacting aircrafts wasn’t strong enough to melt the buildings’ steel beams. While many of the theories regarding the Twin Towers collapse have been disproven there’s still a number of architects and engineers who argue that it was controlled.
The official position on it is that it made the transition from monkey to humans at some point in the 1930s. The idea that it was secretly engineered by the US has found some high-profile support including South African President Thabo Mbeki and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Wangari Maathai.
Number 4 Area 51
One of the most popular conspiracy theories in US history is that UFOs are secretly kept at a base in the Nevada Desert. One retired Army colonel has testified that, while at Area 51, he was exposed to extraterrestrial materials gathered from a 1947 UFO crash site in Roswell, New Mexico. Then, in the 1980s, a man named Bob Lazar claimed that he’d worked on reverse engineering a UFO propulsion system at another base in the Nevada Desert, called S4. Lazar claimed it was built in the side of a mountain and that there were several other UFOs kept in hangars at the base. While such claims have yet to find solid evidence, the area is known for the development of cutting-edge aircraft, such as the U2 or the Nighthawk. The alleged UFO sightings in the regions have been explained as tests conducted on highly-classified man-made technology.
Number 3 Big Pharma
According to a number of surveys, a significant percentage of the American population believes that titans of the pharmaceutical industry are withholding cures. Admitting to the existence of the supposed miracle drugs and then pricing them too steeply would result in crippling backlash. According to a research paper published by researcher David Robert Grimes, in 2016, it would take a little over three years for such a conspiracy to be exposed. This is due to the sheer number of people that would be required to keep it a secret.
Number 2 John F. Kennedy
US President John F Kennedy has triggered numerous conspiracy theories throughout the years. The US Justice Department eventually closed active investigations and found no persuasive evidence to support a conspiracy. Even today, public opinion is generally in favor of a Kennedy conspiracy while the topic remains among the most polarizing in American society.
Number 1 Moon Landing
The United States and the Soviet Union were competing against each other for space-age supremacy. After the Soviets had successfully sent the first man into space, in 1961, US President John F. Kennedy promised a manned moon landing by the end of the decade. The Apollo 11 mission then fulfilled that objective within the promised time frame. Yet, there are a number of conspiracy theories claiming that the moon landing was a hoax. The argument is that the US didn’t have the technical capabilities to take on such an ample project in such little time. Still, they couldn’t appear weak in front of the Soviets, so they filmed the fake landing in a studio. Conspiracy theorists point to the flag which was waving despite the lack of atmosphere, the lack of stars in the video, fake moon rocks and a number of other aspects. Many of these propositions have been scientifically debunked. Some theorists claim that Stanley Kubrick was secretly attached to the project. More than 400,000 people worked on the Apollo missions for over a decade. Some argue that it would’ve been much easier to actually go to the moon than to orchestrate such an elaborate hoax.
