Conspiracy Theories

In this article, I would like to discuss conspiracy theories, but before we start - what exactly are the conspiracy theories? Referring to the definition, a conspiracy theory can be described as the attempts to explain “important events that involve secret plots by powerful and malevolent groups(Douglas, Sutton & Cichocka, 2017). The list of the important events as well as the conspiracy theories is endless, and therefore, I bet you have heard about some of them, including: 

  • Apollo moon landing in 1969 was staged by NASA to win the Space Race (competition between USSR and US on who becomes the first in spaceflight).

  • John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated by the CIA. 

  • The cure for cancer exists but remains unavailable for masses to decrease the Earth population.
