The Fake Moon Landing

  • Perhaps one of the most famous conspiracy theories of all time, this emerged after the Apollo 11 spacecraft landed on the moon on July 26, 1969, making Neil Armstrong the first man to walk on the moon. But even after the video evidence, there are still many skeptics. Why? Well many people, assume that the U.S fabricated the landing to win the “Space Race” an unofficial contest with the Soviet Union.
  • “Proof”: In the footage of the moon landing, the American Flag was seen rippling, even this would be impossible since there is no wind in space. Theorists also argued that the astronauts wouldn’t be able to pass the Van Allen belts due to deadly amounts of radiation. With widespread internet usage more people are skeptical of this achievement.

Predictive programming

  • What is it? According to Dutch Phil predictive programming is “a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by the powers that be.” This basically means the media (TV shows, songs, movies, books, etc) prefaces an event for the people to digest it, with the goal of later enacting the event. Sounds crazy?
  • “Proof”:
    • 1898 Futility closely mirrored the titanic crashing since there were only a few lifeboats, it was called an “unsinkable ship”, and it crashed into an iceberg
    • Donald Trump’s presidency was predicted by the the Simpsons, Season 11 Episode 17 (2000)
    • Greece’s Debt Default Season 23, Episode 10: Politically Inept, with Homer Simpson


  • Theory:
    • The supposed overlords controlling the world’s affairs, operating secretly as they seek to establish a New World Order. A secret society that operated from 1776-1785, founded by a German law professor who had Enlightenment (logical) ideals. He planned to teach these ideas to others, so that they could assume powerful positions. The goal was to have the Illuminati eventually take over the world. They had strange rituals, and were paranoid of non Illuminati members.
    • “Prominent figures”: Beyoncé, Jay Z, Queen Elizabeth, Kim Kardashian
