Ten facts that I find interesting about my topic, conspiracy theories:
1. that 15% of people (globally) believed that the 9/11 attacks were the US Government's responsibility which just goes to show how feasible and probable the theory really is
2. that some people are actually convinced that 'unknown chemicals' are being sprayed into the air for 'reasons undisclosed to the public', showing how conspiracy theories can spring from anywhere and popularise without any valid evidence
3. due to the olympic logo being able to be rearranged into the word 'zion' and thus proving a theory that zionists will use the london 2012 olympic games are going to facilitate the 'new jerusalem' - people can be way too gullible and analyse minor details which can then lead to multiple conspiracy theories
4. the triangular structures used at the top circumference of the olympic athletics stadium actually represents the 'all-seeing' eye, according to some- showing how symbolism can be read into quite extensivley
5. the olympic mascots Wenlock and Mandeville supposedly signify an oncoming 'alien invasion' during the London Olympics (which never happened...) and were described as 'sinister and menacing'
6. Michael Meacher, former British environment minister and member of Tony Blair's Cabinet has stated that the United States knowingly failed to prevent the attacks- interesting how not just anonymous members of the public but an MP also believes in the conspiracy theory
7. it was revealed that one month before 9/11, President Bush had received a memo entitled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” - further evidence in favour of the 'foreknowledge' conspiracy theory
8. supporters of this conspiracy theory regarding chemtrails speculate that the purpose of the chemical release may be for solar radiation management,population control, weather control, or biological warfare/chemical warfare and that these trails are causing respiratory illnesses and other health problems
9. the material collecting on the ground and in water sitting in bowls. KSLA News 12 sampled the water (that had been collected in a bowl on the ground that had come from trails fallen to the ground as a haze) at a lab and initially reported a high level of barium, 6.8 parts per million, more than three times the toxic level set by the EPA- although there is minimal evidence to back up the chemtrails theory, there is some scientific evidence that something might be going on in the skies
10. The United States Air Force states that the theory is a hoax which "has been investigated and refuted by many established and accredited universities, scientific organizations, and major media publications"
