Top 20 Most Bizarre of Popular Conspiracies

Not the Same-Old, Same-Old Everyday Conspiracies; but Real Humdingers! 

I like to keep my eyes, ears and especially my mind wide open so as to not be biased or prejudicial towards any potential well conceived conspiracy. Because, by God, they are out there! 

Although I wrote, The 10 Most Popular Conspiracies, back in December of 2010,  I have come across some conspiracies that I not only had not covered in my previous article so strange as to warrant their own article.

There are a lot of unusual, real life conspiracies that have been proven to be true. Then there are some strange, thought-provoking, mysterious conspiracies that have at least some truth to them. Finally, there are the bizarre, off-the-wall conspiracies that are completely false, to the point even a child could spot the lies.  

Bellow you will find a selection of conspiracies that are so bizarre, that they should either be classified as the greatest conspiracies ever conceived or as the greatest BS ever told. Read about them and be amazed.

1. Fukushima was a False Flag
Japan not hit by 9.0 quake. A False Flag nuclear weaponstest actually destroyed Fukushima

2. State Lotteries is Rigged
Jackpots go up and up, but hardly anybody wins. Millions are made off of those who are willing to wait for the pipe dream of striking it rich.

3. AIDS was Invented in a Laboratory
Many believe that AIDS was invented by either governments or the New World Order to ill off homosexuals and/or drug addicts. We also have the cure for the disease, but it is only available for those worthy to receive it.

4. We already have the Cures for Cancer 
Many believe We already have cures for cancer, but that the government "runs people out of the country" once they know the cure. There could actually be something to this conspiracy, since there is substantial evidence that cancer can be cured and prevented.

5. The North American Union of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico 
Many believe that there is a conspiracy between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico to become one country. This one has enough truth to it to compel me to write the article, Wikileaks Cable Confirms Secret North American Union Agenda, so check it out and be... amazed, confused, maybe even pissed.

6. Killing of Bin Laden really Staged by US Government
There are those who believe that US Navy SEALS did not kill Osama bin Laden, but that the hit was staged by the US government and that bin Laden had already been dead for years. Check out my article, Was the Killing of Bin Laden really Staged by US Government? and decide for yourself.

7. Hoover created a Hit Squad of Homosexuals to Assassinate JFK
There are those who believe that J. Edgar Hoover created a hit squad made up entirely of homosexuals "to assassinate JFK." After the 'hit,' their street clothes were to be changed to "flamboyant/gayish" attire, since back then these types of people would have ignored as "homosexuals" that couldn't possibly have committed such a horrendous act.

8. Redheads are the offspring of aliens
There is little I can ad to the above title, other than there are more people believe this than you might think.

9. There is a concentration camp under the Denver International Airport
It is believed by many that there is a concentration camp under the Denver International Airport which has an 8 level underground military base, a gas chamber and is rumored to be conducting genetic experiments. 

10. Dulce, New Mexico, has a Secret Underground Base
Many believe that there is a secret underground base located in Dulce, New Mexico that the American Government has been working on for over 70 years. It is said to house not only alien spacecraft, but actual live aliens who are conducting genetic expirements on humans and animals. There is a ton of info on this on the internet. Check it out.

11. Fox News Broadcasts Invisible Signals of Mind Control
Some believe that Fox News Channel is broadcasting some parallel, inaudible and invisible signals with the audiovisual that is consciously perceived by the viewers." If Fox News is using mind control, what specifically would its purpose be?

12. Obama was Groomed to be the first Muslim President
Obama is said to do things for the Muslim Brotherhood and since they do not like the Jews, Obama wants to make sure Israel falls.

13. The Number on the Back of your Social Security Card is a World Bank Account Number
There are those who believe that the number on the back of your social security card is a World Bank account number. At the bank, “there is a form that you can fill out to get that money back from the government, but the story goes if you do that you become marked as a target for death.”

14. Dentists are putting Small Microwave-Type things in your Teeth
Some believe that dentist are putting small mircowave type things in your teeth! This help's to give you heart burn and indigestion which in turn puts doctor's in business and drug companies selling anti-acid medications.

15. Strange Rain
Reports of clear goo rain. Tests were done on the goo and it was determend that it had human white blood cells and some kind of animal nucleus in the cells, and almost everyone in the town got 'Flue like symtoms', and several pets that came in comtact with it died.

16. Free Cell Phones are Equipped with a Micro Transmitter
Some believe that the free government funded cell phones are equipped with a micro transmitter that not only monitors the location of the phone and communications.but picks up what purchases are made with state food stamp cards.and what is billed to state medical cards.and certain charges and purchases can automatically raise red flags.the person I heard this from works in the micro software ind."

17. Abiotic Acid
Reports of oil that naturally replenishes itself! It has supposedly been around since the 1950's but few people know about it.

18. No More Guns
There are those who claim that Obama is having contractor 'Security Forces' trained for a 2013 confiscation of our guns."

19. Dream Warnings Sent by Aliens
There are many people who say that they have been getting dreams sent to them about things to come and that they are being sent by aliens to try and help us. Some say they have dreamed of disasters that have come true. These people think that there is a race of bad and good aliens. While the good ones are trying to help us through our dreams, the bad ones are here to take control of the world. Sound familiar? Did anybody watch "The Event"?

20. George Bush was flying the reconstructed Roswell Flying Disk
There are those who actually claim that George Bush was flying a reconstructed Roswell flying disk and used the alien death ray to destroy the Twin Towers on 9-11-01 while also using alien brain manipulation technology to make the world "see" planes flying into the towers. He did this to bring about the End of Days.

If you want to read about some more real whacked-out conspiracies, I recommend you check out The Conspiracy Summit Dossier: Whistle Blower's Guide To The Strangest And Most Bizarre Cosmic And Global Conspiracies! This 190 page awesome volume includes an exclusive, first time  interview with Bill Cooper's daughter! Jessica Cooper, daughter of the legendary patroit and former Naval Officer, gives her first ever interview with Tim Beckley, discussing her dad's raging battle with the authorities, what he REALLY believed about UFOs, the Kennedy assassination, and how the Feds tried to use her to lure her father down from the safety of his mountain top retreat.This is a treat for any conspiracy lover!


One way I get introduced to some of these fantastic conspiracies is through your comments and article submissions inquiries. While I encourage you, the public, to submit conspiracy theories you think Conspiracy Watch should investigate, we aren't able to follow up on every tip, particularly when starting with nothing but a theory. I wish Conspiracy Watch could explore them all further, however, the only way to be able to cover more of them is if you provide more submissions to publish.

Keep the suggestions coming, while remembering that the only dumb question is the one that is never asked and the only bad story is the one that is never written.

Obama Haters Turn up the Heat on President via AttackWatch.com Twitter Feed

The high-profile effort by the re-election campaign to counter critics has become an online bulletin board for jokes.

During Obama's 2008 election campaign the media praised the Obama's brilliant use of the Internet and social media... 

Today, the high-profile social media effort by the 2012 re-election campaign staff to counter the President's critics has become an online bulletin of Obama jokes, turning the President of the United States into the laughing stock of America.

The President's official re-election campaign organization, Obama for America, recently launched AttackWatch.com. The website promotes people to file reports when someone criticizes the president and to post a rebuttal of "facts" to counter these "smears." And although AttackWatch.com's Twitter feed is attracting plenty of reports, they are not at all the kind the campaign staff was expecting.

For example, a concerned citizen reported, "I saw 6 ATM's in an alley, killing a job. It looked like a hate crime!" 

AttackWatch.com's Twitter page recently featured so many blatant attacks against the president that it was hard to find real Obama supporters rebutting his critics. 

One tweeter posted, "Hey kids, are mommy and daddy talking bad about Obama? Be sure to report them at #attackwatch."

Another user tweeted: "There's a new Twitter account making President Obama look like a creepy, authoritarian nutjob: @AttackWatch." Another user identifying himself as Matt Cover tweeted, "Someone told me the stimulus didn't keep unemployment below 8%. That's not true, is it?"

Yet another Twitter user referred to the current Obama scandal of a bankrupt solar energy company that received federal loans, when he tweeted: "Solyndra Green is people!"

Although the attacks have become a favorite pastime for Republicans, I will wager that Obama's campaign staff isn't laughing. Personally, I don't think its funny when a nation is making its President into a laughing stock. 

What kind of message does this not only send to our children, friends and allies, but even more importantly, what kind of message does it send to our enemies?

Ten Years after 9/11, the Conspiracy Theories Continue. What do You Believe?

10 Years Later, there are still some who reject the Proof that Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda were behind the 9/11 Attacks as only Theories.

Ten years after 9/11, there are still plenty of skeptics calling themselves "Truthers" who doubt the government's theory that the attacks were organized by Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda operatives. 

There are those who believe that 9/11 was an "inside job" orchestrated by the Bush administration to gather public support for a New World Order and global domination. Others believe the CIA orchestrated the whole thing, while still others believe it was a Jewish conspiracy, executed by the Mossad.

Personally, I believe 9/11 was indeed a conspiracy: 19 members of al-Qaeda plotting to fly planes into buildings is a conspiracy by definition. However, conspiracy theorists like myself are skeptical until a claim is proven, requiring a concerted effort that many people do not make.

Truther's tend to believe that everything is interconnected and everything happens for a reason. They connected the dots of random events into meaningful patterns, adding hidden forces behind the scenes pulling the strings. They looked for and found confirming evidence for what they already believe and ignore the dis-confirming evidence, tailoring after-the-fact explanations to fit the facts, until they had the foundation of a conspiracy.

If you would like to learn more about the Truthers, their theories, evidence and logic, I strongly recommend, 9/11 conspiracy theories: the 9/11 truth movement in perspective.(World Trade Center and Pentagon Attacks, 2001): An article from: Skeptic.

I wanted to find a relevant video for this article, showing the extent of the Truther's influence, but when I did a search on YouTube for, "9/11 conspiracy theories" I was overwhelmed with no less than 18,600 results. So, I have decided to present you the most popular one, with the most views. Here is a 9/11 conspiracy video receiving over 23 million views! That's right, the 9/11: Total Proof That Bombs Were Planted In The Buildings! video received 23,395,814 views at the time of this article! Judge it for yourself:

As someone who believes in existence of several different conspiracies, including the existence of New World Order, I still tend to believe in the US government's version on this one. I am a rationalist. I believe in logic.

Concerning 9/11, I have read all the articles and watched all the videos explaining the Truther's theory, yet based on evidence and rationality, I tend to believe our government's theory on this one. At least the bigger part of it. There are still questions that need answers, but for the most part, I am convinced Osama bi Laden and al Qaeda planned and orchestrated the attacks of 9/11. Here's why:
  • The well-established evidence of Osama bin Laden as a major financier and leader of al Qaeda.
  • The 1993 attack on the World Trade Center.
  • The 1995 attempt to blow up 12 planes heading from the Philippines to the U.S.
  • The 1995 bombings of U.S. Embassy buildings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 12 Americans and 200 local civilians.
  • The 1996 official declaration of jihad against the United States by bin Laden.
  • The 1996 attack in Saudi Arabia on the Khobar Towers that killed 19 U.S. soldiers.
  • The 1998 calling on followers of Islam, "to kill the Americans and their allies (civilian and military) is an individual duty for any Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it."
  • The 1999 attempt by Ahmed Ressam to attack Los Angeles International Airport.
  • The 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 U.S. sailors.
  • The 2004 al-Qaeda Madrid train bombings.
  • The 2005 al-Qaeda London bombings.

If that doesn't convince you, consider the statement issued by al-Qaeda following the 2009 underwear bombing on Christmas Day:
"Be prepared to suffer because the killing is coming and we prepared you men who love death just as you love life and by God's permission, we will come to you with more things that you have never seen before. Because, as you kill, you will be killed and tomorrow is coming soon. The martyrdom brother was able to reach his objective with the grace of God but due to a technical fault, the full explosion did not take place."
Reading this, how could you question al-Qaeda's motive, resolve and follow-through on everything terror? Even if they hadn't orchestrated the 9/11 attacks, they would have if they could have.

Since conspiracies do happen, however, we cannot just automatically dismiss all conspiracy theorists as false. There have been a lot of conspiracy theories that have turned out to be true, or believed to be true, that we must look at conspiracy theories with our eyes and minds wide open.

A decade has gone by since the most horrendous attack on America soil sine Pearl Harbor, so it is time to put aside irrational Truther's conspiracy mongering. We could and should spend our time more wisely, investigating real political issues, such as the relative costs vs. benefits of the wars we are currently engaged in and their effects on our failing economy.

Enough Americans have died because of al Qaeda! Let us mourn those who have fallen and pray for those who survived. Let us count our losses. Let's get the hell out of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, and not even think about attacking anybody else but our debt.

What do you believe really happened? Do you believe the widely accepted governments version of what happened on 9/11? Do you believe there is more to 9/11 than meets the eye? Do you believe the Truthers? Conspiracy Watch readers would love to read your take on 9/11! Why not make us all happy with a comment, bellow?

What Obama didn’t tell the American People during his Presidential Address

As I sit watching Obama’s Presidential Address, I can’t help but picture him as a puppet king hailing his minions, while he tells us what the puppet masters think we want to hear.

Reading from teleprompters and cue cards, we aren’t hearing what our President has to say, but what his speechwriters have been told by big business.

While delivering his speech, it all sounds promising, but I think the President knows, that we Americans have figured out that it’s all nothing but BS, and that nothing he is saying will ever get done.

Obama knows that the gears are in motion, where nothing that anybody says or does will change the fact, that the world is in a downward spiral and can no longer be saved.

It is possibly too late for even the power elite calling the shots to manipulate an economy this broken beyond repair. It appears the New World Order will fail again, just as they did when they were still called the Third Reich.

And so our government, the Federal Reserve, the World Bank and Rothschilds, Rockefellas and Morgans of the world scramble, trying desperately to salvage what’s left of a sinking ship, otherwise known as our economy.

Although, no matter what world governments or rich secret societies do now, the damage has already been done long ago. Ever since money was no longer backed up by gold. In fact, world economies returning to a gold standard is possibly the only thing that could save us from a financial chaos.

There is no question, the world is head towards a depression never before seen. The bigger question is now, how far will China go to collect the money it’s owed. There are many that believe this it is this tension that will eventually lead to war.

The Wall Street Journal writes, Inflation Is China's Top Concern, World Bank Chief Says.

China is America's largest creditor. Depending on how it's measured, we owe China anywhere from $739 billion to $1 trillion - and that sum is likely to rise given how much we're going to need to borrow to stimulate the economy. What is China going to do once they realize that the US and various European countries will never be able to repay them what they are owed? How far will China go to collect?

Once bitter foes during the Cold War, Moscow and Beijing have over the past years ramped up political cooperation as both are driven by a desire to counterbalance US global dominance.

Together they want to replace the dollar with an alternative currency!

Russia and China have joint plans to expand their "strategic cooperation" including within multilateral structures like the UN and the Group of Twenty developed and developing economies.

Joint work is also to be ramped up within regional groupings like the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in order to… "support peace, security and stability on the planet and facilitate the formation of a multilateral world and the democratization of international relations," a Chinese diplomat said.

The language coming from these two Superpowers suggests eastern alienation towards the west.

Could it come down to the unthinkable. A world war between America and Europe against China and Russia?

Oblivious to the average American, China has been developing modified Dong Feng 21 missiles capable of extremely long flight. Although the potential of threat didn’t go unnoticed by our government, nobody seemingly bothered to tell the American public.

China has also made itself known to be a cybersecurity threat to both the industrial and military communities. And as we sleep, China has conducted numerous penetration tests against srategic U.S. computer systems.

We also know that China has a relatively active, organized cybercriminal community, with large groups of people conducting phishing attacks against Americans.

China has 1.3 billion people, more than four times America’s population. China gives birth to more babies each year than Canada has people — and that’s after China’s incredible policy which only allows the Chinese one child per family.

China has become an economic powerhouse, growing its GDP by about 10% per year. This year, China blew past Japan to become the world’s second largest individual economy, after the U.S.

China’s cows, alone, will be consuming more than one seventh of the world’s oil supplies within 10 years. Just their cows. That’s not counting what their 1.3 billion people need.

China consumes slightly more than we do, at about 2.6 billion tons of go-juice. What makes China particularly interesting is that they’re consuming more and more each year. While our demand increases only 0.34% annually, China’s demand is increasing at 8.68%. Even the rate of increase is increasing. Back in 2000, China’s demand only increased by 2.46%.

I did a lot more math in How To Save Jobs, but one calculation stood out. China has made it a national priority to push more and more of its citizens into a middle class. But if China manages to “middle class” most of its citizens, China alone would then consume 10.1 billion tons of oil equivalent per year, or 78% of the world’s total output.

If India were to grow at the same rate (and India is growing fast, as well), China and India combined would consume 1.5 times the world’s total energy supply. In other words, those two countries, alone, will need more oil that the world actually has. This could be a problem.

The Chinese government is aware of all of this. The more they build, the more they consume. This is why China has become frenemies with the United States.

We provide a market for their goods and a source of money for all that energy they consume.

But there’s one more important fact about China you should know. China absolutely hates that Taiwan isn’t part of the PRC. They absolutely, viscerally hate that the United States has been defending Taiwan and has been standing in their way to repatriate Taiwan, to bring Taiwanese citizens under mainland control.

In fact, to many PRC government minds, Taiwan is now part of mainland China. It’s just that America is blocking their rightful governance.

So, put it all together. China has four times our population. They have an economy going gangbusters, but will likely need more oil than exists on the planet, and they have an irrational anger at us for our role in keeping Taiwan out of their clutches. Plus, we owe them trillions of dollars.

It makes for a potent and volatile cocktail, doesn’t it?

I’ve written several articles on state of the world economy within the last year myself, trying desperately to warn people of the coming chaos. Thank God I’m not the only one who sees the approaching doom.

In his book, The Next Great Clash: China and Russia vs. the United States, Michael Levin makes the case that China and the United States will go to war with each other within the next 5 to 25 years.

Though this may sound like something from a Tom Clancy novel, The Next Great Clash is no wild theory. Levin looks at the impending causes for a major global confrontation through economic, political, cultural, and historical lenses.

Levin also explains how Russia, America’s Cold War enemy, has deftly positioned itself as the “swing player” in this real world game of Risk. Though the USSR has fallen, Russia has a lot to gain by promoting a conflict between East and West. Levin carefully examines the fragile 400-year relationship between these neighbors and the strategic partnership that has developed between them.

Levin and I have the same agenda in mind, as we both try to raise awareness before a clash becomes inevitable. By understanding the issues from all sides, we hope that we as people will find a way to avoid World War III.

Written By: Tom Retterbush

The Next Great Clash: China and Russia vs. the United States
These are uncertain times. The balance of power is continually shifting worldwide. In The Next Great Clash, Michael Levin presents evidence of a global political order on the verge of a historic power shift from West to East. A reemerging China is the only nation with the latent capacity to challenge American hegemony, and Levin demonstrates that such challenges to the status quo usually lead to war.

Christianity; Fact of Fiction? Was Jesus Real, or was His the Greatest Story Ever Told?

Scholars, Archaeologists, Skeptics and Believers alike have been asking this same question since the birth of Christianity.

Albert Schweitzer, and New Testament scholar Nicholas Perrin both, argued that since most biblical scholars are Christians, religious bias is inevitable and thus cannot be trusted.

Traditionally, howevr, Western scholars considered the Gospel accounts of Jesus to be authoritative and inspired by God, but starting in the late 18th century, scholars began to submit the Gospels to historical scrutiny. From 1744 to 1767, Hermann Samuel Reimarus composed a treatise rejecting miracles and accusing Bible authors of fraud.

In The Story of Civilization, Will Durant, a secular historian, posed this same question:
“Did Christ exist? Is the life story of the founder of Christianity the product of human sorrow, imagination, and hope—a myth comparable to the legends of Krishna, Osiris, Attis, Adonis, Dionysus, and Mithras?”
Durant pointed out how the story of Christianity has “many suspicious resemblances to the legends of pagan gods.”4 Later in this article we will see how this great historian answered his own question about the existence of Jesus.

So, how can we know for sure that this man, whom many worship and others curse, was real?

The quest for the historical Jesus has always been closely related to the Christian search for God. This is both good and necessary, provided that one properly understands the relationship between history and theology ("the Jesus of history" and "the Christ of faith") and does not confuse the two.

Though the historical evidence of Jesus illustrates that earliest Christianity was very much a “Jewish phenomenon,” the historical evidence of Jesus also shows, Jesus’ message cannot be easily identified with the teachings of other Jewish groups.

Now, we may want to ask another question; which first-century historians who wrote about Jesus did not have a Christian agenda?

First of all, let’s take a look at Jesus’ enemies.

Jesus’ many Jewish opponents who had the most to gain by denying Jesus’ existence, though denying his status as a Christ and Savior, they never went as far as denying his existence.

In fact, several Jewish writings tell of Jesus’ existence. Although these consist of only a few brief, bitter passages intended to discount Jesus’ deity, these very early Jewish writings don’t begin to hint that he was not a historical person.”

A noted Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, who was born just a few years after Jesus died, who began writing under Roman authority in a.d. 67 and who would have been keenly aware of Jesus’ status among both Romans and Jews, wrote about Jesus as a real person.

There is current confirmation of at least 19 early secular writers who lived in ancient times, but who are said not to have been religiously motivated, who made references to Jesus as a real person.

Cornelius Tacitus, one of history’s greatest scholars, who was born around 25 years after Jesus died, affirmed that Jesus had suffered under Pilate.

All of these independent accounts, both religious and secular, speak of Jesus as a real man who matches up pretty good with the Jesus of the Gospels.

Encyclopedia Britannica even went as far as to cite these various secular accounts of Jesus’ life as convincing proof of his existence. It states:
“These independent accounts prove that in ancient times even the opponents of Christianity never doubted the historicity of Jesus.”
Some German higher-critical scholars in the 18th and 19th centuries had questioned Jesus’ existence, pointing out that such key figures as Pontius Pilate and the chief priest Joseph Caiaphas in the Gospel accounts had never been confirmed as real. No rebuttal was possible until the mid-20th century.

Archaeologists in 1962 confirmed Pilate’s existence when they discovered his name included in an inscription on an excavated stone. Likewise, the existence of Caiaphas was uncertain until 1990, when an ossuary (bone box) was discovered bearing his inscription. Archaeologists have also discovered what they believe to be Simon Peter’s house and a cave where John the Baptist did his baptizing. 

Still, many scholars, archaeologists, writers and general skeptics, two of the most prominent being Earl DohertyG. A. Wells and Robert M. Price, question with works such as the 2005 documentary The God Who Wasn't There, whether Jesus ever existed, and whether attempts to use the Gospels to reconstruct his life give the Gospels too much credit.

Richard Dawkins, wrote that while Jesus probably existed, it is "possible to mount a serious, though not widely supported, historical case that Jesus never lived at all."

The philosopher Bertrand Russell doubted the existence of Jesus: and Peter Gandy argues that Jesus was derived from pagan gods like Dionysus.

Luigi Cascioli went as far as filing a lawsuit against the Vatican, accusing the Church of inventing the story of Jesus' existence. And tough the case was thrown out of court in February, 2006, the plaintiff got the attention and publicity he was looking for. 

When first getting caught up in the controversy, deciding to investigate the age old question, I of course did extensive online searches. When doing the Google search for "Christianity Fact of Fiction" I got 33,000,000 results, when Googling "Was Jesus Real" I got a whopping 413,000,000 results. Apparently a lot of people are obsessed with these questions!

Also apparently, there have been many books written on the subject, considering Amazon alone shows 148,485 results for Jesus, 73,853 results for Jesus Christ, 14,797 results for Jesus of history and no less than 282,283 results for Christianity. More books have been written about Jesus than about any other person in history.

Of these many books, I did my best to find some written by reputable authors and with good reviews, but only a couple really stood out: The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ, The Historical Jesus: An Essential Guide (Essential Guides), and Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography. However there is a DVD available by the acclaimed director Peter Sykes, called JESUS - Fact Or Fiction, gives the truth about Jesus a freshness that is often missing in most other presentations. Despite the quite mundane cover, I think it's 5 stars material (see description of DVD at the bottom of this article).

And so the argument against Jesus' existence continued, being made public on CNN TV when Ellen Johnson, president of American Atheists, stated:

“The reality is there is not one shred of secular evidence there ever was a Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ and Christianity is a modern religion. And Jesus Christ is a compilation from other gods: Osiris, Mithras, who had the same origins, the same death as the mythological Jesus Christ.” - Ellen Johnson, atheist

When Johnson and a panel of religious leaders were discussing the question, “What happens after we die?” on a Larry King Live CNN broadcast, the usually composed King paused thoughtfully, replying, “So you don’t believe there was a Jesus Christ?”

Johnson responded with conviction, “There was not. It is not what I believe; there is no secular evidence that JC, Jesus Christ, ever existed.”

King had no follow-up and went to a commercial break. No discussion of any evidence for or against Jesus’ existence was forthcoming. The international television audience was left wondering then, just as we are today.

The question, “was Jesus real?” may well be the greatest mystery in history.

What do you believe? Was Jesus a real, historical person? Do you believe he was really the Son of God? Please, my Conspiracy Watch readers want to know what you believe, so leave your comment, bellow.
