5 Non-Famous Conspiracy Theories
A few days ago, I mentioned in one of my hubs that some of my interests include occult and mysteries. This interest also involves conspiracy theories. When we say conspiracy theories, most times the theories that come to mind are the Roswell alien spacecraft case or the Illuminati. These are the same regular conspiracy theories which are in the process of getting debunked every day. However, there are certain conspiracy theories that are not so famous and don’t often make it to the headlines.
Here is a list of 5 such non-famous conspiracy theories. This list includes some whacky theories as well as theories that have been proven right.
1) Reptilians are ruling the world
I am a person who is fairly open to multiple possibilities in the universe. However, it is a bit uncomfortable for me to believe in this theory. I bet people are aware of the Illuminati who are trying to control the world. But who are these reptilians? There are multiple theories about the reptilians. According to one theory, reptilians are the original inhabitants of earth (remember the dinosaurs??). They have been here before humans were created on earth. However, they went underground as more humans started populating the earth. They have evolved just like humans and have been plotting for thousands of years to enslave the human intruders and get back earth for themselves.

2) The President’s Book of Secrets
Anyone who has seen the movie National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets knows what I am talking about. In fact the movie was based on this theory. The movie talks about a book handed down by one former President of the United States to the other. Only the present President knows where the book is. A President documents events such as the Roswell incident, Area 51, some UFO incidents, JFK assassination, and location of Holy Grail etc. that are earth-shattering in nature in this book. Some say that the true identity of the antichrist too is documented in this book. How true is the existence of this book? Only the President of the United States knows that.
3) Project MKULTRA
This is definitely one conspiracy that should be in this list of non-famous conspiracy theories. And this theory was indeed proven true. You may have heard rumors about the CIA conducting secret experiments to see how it can control your mind. The experiment was conducted in reality and it was called Project MKULTRA. This experiment (including over a hundred sub-projects) was started on April 13, 1953 by the CIA. The project apparently was started as response to rumors of Communist mind control being used on American prisoners from Korean War. Afraid of a possibly impending danger, the CIA jumped on the bandwagon of mind control experiments. However, these experiments never succeeded. In fact, the project was found out and the CIA was given a stern warning about such a project.
4) Moon is an alien base
A list of conspiracy theories won’t be complete if it doesn’t talk about aliens. Why is one side of the moon always dark? One reason is that because it is not an earth’s satellite, but actually an alien base. Naturally the aliens don’t want to be found. This is not my theory, but many conspiracy theorists would like to claim this theory to be true. Have you ever wondered why no manned mission has been ever sent to moon again after Apollo 17 (December 1972). This was because the astronauts were strictly warned by the resident aliens (or the natives) to stay off the moon. At least, that is what astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin claimed. You can read more about that theory here.

Are there really aliens on moon? What did the astronauts of Apollo 11 see there? Why did manned missions to moon halt all of a sudden?
5) Hollow Earth theory
During the ages when the church had a strong hold in the west, it was proclaimed that the earth was flat and it was the center of the universe. Then science proved that earth is not flat, but spherical and it is not the center of the universe. There also exists another group of people that is trying to prove that the earth does not have a solid core, but is hollow inside with another world similar to the outer earth’s surface. Yes, you heard it right. This theory is called the “Hollow earth theory”. This theory gained momentum when Admiral Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957), inadvertently found an inner earth world during one of his expeditions.
According to Byrd’s diary and hollow earth theorists, Atlantis did exist and the Atlanteans went underground when the great flood destroyed Atlantis. Not only this, but the diary also claims bizarre and giant flora and fauna in this world. Some theorists also claim that most of the aliens are not extraterrestrial but are from the inner earth and occasionally come out. It is claimed that the humans were given strict warning by these natives after the detonation of the atomic bomb during World War II.
