I love conspiracy theories, they're both amusing and unsettling. Amusing in how insane they can be, and unsettling to realize people believe this crap.
These ones are okay, if a bit short. But I find fault with the "Cardiff Giant" being a scientific hoax. The statue was not accepted by most archeological experts, geologists, and paleontologists of the day but was embraced by several christian scholars and ministers as real. That whole bit about "giants roamed the earth..." part of the bible.
Since the giant wasn't made by a scientist (it was a tobacco dealer) and was not accepted by scientists, how then can it be called a scientific hoax?
how many crank calls did they get?
The thing about the lost cosmonauts actually has more weight than this makes it sound. While the whole thing about audio recordings of dying astronauts has been proven as garbage (as were those same Italian's claims they had video footage of the moon), there actually is evidence that Russia may very well have been sending people into space up to three years before the Gagarin flight, and that most of them died due to the capsules having been poorly made.
I had never heard the calender theory before. As far as I know the years 2005/6 didn't exist either.
THANK YOU CAP'N THEY ALMOST HAD ME FOOLED
-2 for lack of depth or context for some of the stories.
+3 for my brand new catchphrase: "I DECLARE IT... A FAKE!!"
Of course it is the German's denying his history.
5 stars for an amazingly crazy theory I'd never heard of, the phantom time one.
