Crazy Conspiracies – Some Americans Believe the Moon Landing is Fake, Bigfoot Exists and Paul McCartney is Dead
What do you believe in? What do you accept as truth? Some things in history have conspiracy theories. These are the questions that were posed. According to the poll of 1,247 registered American voters, here are some of the results:
In a poll done by Public Policy Polling and published by Yahoo!, Seven percent of American voters believe the moon landing was faked, 6 percent say Osama bin Laden is still alive, and 13 percent think President Barack Obama is the Antichrist.
Al Gore is going to cry when he reads this, 37 percent believe global warming is a hoax
Nearly a third (29 percent) of those polled believe aliens exist; 21 percent of American voters says a UFO crashed in Roswell, N.M., in 1947 and that the U.S. government covered it up.
Fourteen percent believe in Bigfoot.
Voters are split (44 percent say yes, 45 percent no) on whether President George W. Bush intentionally misled the American people about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Meanwhile, 51 percent of voters say a larger conspiracy was at work in the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of President John F. Kennedy—just 25 percent say Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
Think the Big Brother thoughts are dead? Listen to some of these results:
• 9% of voters think the government adds fluoride to our water supply for sinister reasons (not just dental health).
• 15% of voters say the government or the media adds mind-controlling technology to TV broadcast signals, I knew there was a reason I would get up and make a sandwich.
• 15% of voters think the medical industry and the pharmaceutical industry “invent” new diseases to make money.
• 11% of voters believe the US government allowed 9/11 to happen (78% do not agree).
AND…. 5 percent of those polled believe Paul McCartney actually died in 1966 and was secretly replaced in the Beatles, by who? A Paul McCartney fake that can write and sing as good as Paul himself?
