Do you believe in any conspiracy theories?
I was always very sceptical, but it seems a lot of the things that conspiracy theorists have said are true.
Corruption within the government, paedophilia amongst celebrities, and so on.
I have a a friend who believes that the transgender issues of late are also part of a drive by 'the elite' to confuse people, and keep them in a state of not knowing what is natural.
What are your thoughts?

Interesting theory, who would be ‘the elite ‘ in this case & what would they have to gain.?

MissAdventure Mon 12-Feb-18 21:35:00

That's always my question to her. The very top people in society, she says. Psychopaths, she says, and that is the reason they do all these things. 'Hiding in plain sight' she says.
Much like Jimmy Saville, she says.

It depends on the theory and the evidence supporting it.

I love a good conspiracy theory but that one sounds a bit dodgy even to me.

They are talking about conspiracy theory in loose women at the moment. I am happy to say my tv has been repaired by my clever dh so as a special treat am watching daytime tv.

MissAdventure Tue 13-Feb-18 13:26:08

Ah well, tvs are set to vibrate at a frequency which unsettles us, so be careful! We can't hear it, but its part of the reason why people spend hours in front of the 'box'. grin

silverlining48 Tue 13-Feb-18 13:26:09

Not totally convinced by conspiracy theory though...

carol58 Tue 13-Feb-18 13:35:00

I'll think twice about turning the box on in future MissAdventure 😂. My OH is convinced man has never been to the moon, in space, Mars etc. Tells me it is all just filmed in a studio and the billions it is said to cost is syphoned off by those in power! Who knows, really? He's also wary of using anything online which needs personal information as he believes the government watch our every move. Might have a point there though...

MissAdventure Tue 13-Feb-18 13:37:16

I know a good few people who agree with your other half, Carol. If you look at pictures, they do seem rather strange..

vampirequeen Tue 13-Feb-18 13:50:41

I've seen the pictures too.....they do look suspicious. I like the theory that aliens have already been in touch and are among us. That one wouldn't surprise me.

MissAdventure Tue 13-Feb-18 14:00:26

Chem trails? Weather manipulation, anybody?

Jalima1108 Tue 13-Feb-18 14:16:29

There was a theory that aliens live at the bottom of the ocean vq

Ley lines?

Actually, my theory is that we are all aliens.

We could soon find out ....

China already manipulate the weather by sending silver iodide rockets into the atmosphere.

vampirequeen Tue 13-Feb-18 14:47:36

I think aliens have at least visited on many occasions. I think the ancient gods were aliens and possibly even JC, Mohamed, Guru Nanak and Buddha.

I think the CIA organised the assassination of JFK and that Lee Harvey Oswald was a patsy. Someone else fired the killer shot.

Climate change/weather control is a way of taking control of the water supply. Up to now 'they' (whoever they are) have controlled people through religion, land ownership when we were mainly rural, industry and oil. Now the oil is running out they need something else. Water is the obvious choice.

Is Michelle Obama really a man? youtu.be/d7M4gSnJw1Q

Nonnie Tue 13-Feb-18 15:27:16

I think its the aliens who keep hiding DH's glasses!

MissAdventure Tue 13-Feb-18 15:28:59

I can believe that because they hide mine too. Often they're 'Hiding in plain sight' as well!

Nonnie Tue 13-Feb-18 16:03:19

And another thing, they get inside my food and make it extra fattening as well as making the goodies fly off the shelves into my shopping so I didn't know they were there and then have to eat them because it is wrong to waste food.

Jalima1108 Tue 13-Feb-18 18:40:34

I believe in The Borrowers

Chewbacca Tue 13-Feb-18 19:08:10

Me too Jalima. I'm 100% convinced a whole family of 'em live under the floorboards of my house and all my missing keys, earrings, mobile phone chargers and knee high socks are down there. No idea what they're doing with so many, they must have loads by now. hmm

Jalima1108 Tue 13-Feb-18 19:19:07

Sometimes they know I'm looking for something and they sneak it back to a drawer/box etc where I never put things.

Eloethan Tue 13-Feb-18 22:49:28

cavewoman Not just China.

Jalima1108 Tue 13-Feb-18 22:59:26

They do say that is what caused the terrible Lynton and Lynmouth floods of 1952.
