    The 2012 scenario was quite a conspiracy theory.  Many unsuspecting people becoming quite hyped regarding December 21, 2012 being the end of the world.  There were some people who were quite apprehensive regarding 2012 approaching. Well we survive 2012, thank you ever so kindly.

    I find the Illuminati talk most ridiculous! It seems that whenever someone succeeds at what he does, he is illuminati!

    The greatest conspiracy theory of all times is trying to convince people around the world that Satan is the cause of all of man's troubles. 
    When we can get a grip on reality and realize that man is his own worst enemy, and stop blaming our problems on everything else, especially the abstract, maybe we can finally see some positive changes in this troubled world.

    The notion that Jesus didn't exist, and that all the apostles save John the revelator were executed horribly for some crack pot story they made up.

    Most conspiracies have a germ of truth at the center. but they are taken way out of context. But this is the most outrageous one I've heard:

    According to the English Writer and speaker David Icke, the world is run by the Babylonian Brotherhood, a group of shape shifting, reptilian humanoids. He claims that Queen Elizabeth II, Boxcar Willie and the entire Bush Family are members!

    The idea that there are no conspiracies!

    It's a much misunderstood word taken to have only one meaning and only one meaning which is understood to have by definition a negative meaning although people can and do conspire to do good things as well as bad things.
