I was going to start this blog with the question of whether owls are really wise. It seemed like a good conspiracy starter, until I found the differing opinions that some people think that owls are absolute dimwits, while others think they are the Einstein of birds. I’ll let you google that to come to your own conclusion. Clearly, owls have a great public relations department!
Our history books tell us that Adolph Hitler shot himself in the head on April 30, 1945. His body was found beside his wife, Eva Braun; who had committed suicide by taking a cyanide pill. Both of their bodies were found inside the bunker by hundreds of soldiers.
Conspiracy theorists contend that Hitler replaced his “body” with someone else and then escaped through a tunnel that was below the bunker. From there, he went directly to an airport and was helicoptered to Spain. From Spain, he ultimately traveled by submarine to Argentina, where he lived until his death many years later. That theory was written about by Argentina author, Abel Basti, in his book titled “Hitler in Exile.”
Perhaps I should have started the rumor that the alien that supposedly landed in Roswell, New Mexico, was ultimately spotted throwing a football in Argentina, with Hitler. I have attached a compiled listing of “The 30 greatest conspiracy theories“. (Telegraph.co.uk)
I blog on conspiracies today because several at the office have mentioned the film “What The Health”, that I blogged about on Monday. (here). It’s filled with “follow the money” conspiracies. I’m curious whether you believe that non-charitable organizations can be so influenced by huge donations. My guess is that you are saying right now, “Of course I believe!”
I still want to believe that there is not such influence. Of course, I still want to believe that it’s healthy to eat cheesecake. Oh how I want to believe!
And for pic o’ day…
