Do you believe everything you are told? Ever thought it just wasn’t right or didn’t add up, and then you started something called a conspiracy theory. This brings me to my topic which is conspiracy theories; I’m going to talk about why they happen, what starts them, and just a general understanding of them. I’ve explored three different countries in search of conspiracy theories all around the world. I explored Russia, Germany, and The U.S.
When I started my topic I knew a couple of things already, that these theories get started by a simple thought of curiosity. They usually happen with big events, and mainly they revolve around or in the end come back to the government. I feel that people should be more aware about these things that are happening and being brought up. Now this might sound bad but I feel that you should not always believe the things your told right away, always go back to them and think.
Throughout my research of these different theories in these countries I’ve learned that there are always two sides to every story. I also learned that you should always think more about these things not just stop on one theory. When doing this it helps to keep an open mind because it helps you take in information easier. Talk to people about what you have come up with and why you think what you think, maybe you will even convince them that what you’re saying makes sense. Now in Russia I learned that they had a meteor strike and cause massive damage and even injure about 1200 people. You may not think anything of it but what I learned is that people in Russia don’t think it was just a meteor they think it might have been some extra-terrestrial activity, a U.S. weapons test and some even say it was assign from god. This might sound crazy but if you keep an open mind and just look more into it like I did, you could maybe find some more information. I found out from an article from the mail online, that supposedly the meteor was hit by a UFO in midair, which caused it to explode in the atmosphere above the Ural Mountains. I also learned about a secret city in Germany called Bielefeld is believed to be a fake and home to some impossible sounding things. According to the DW a group of students they believe that Bielefeld doesn’t even exist, because they don’t know anybody from there and they don’t know anybody that visited there. Soon after casually voicing concerns an increase of people started claiming to have come from Bielefeld. Bielefeld started appearing in the local and national press almost every day; they even have a homepage now that shows it. They had a soccer team but that soccer team had disappeared and been forgotten, when they started having success in the top Germany league. According to those that have escaped Bielefeld are lucky, most people that find themselves just off of A2 motorway getting abducted and manipulated at a top secret ultramodern manipulation institution known as Bielefeld center. There other wild things supposedly happening in Bielefeld like dragons in underground cave systems being watched my ancient knight and being sedated by a mind altering substance, of course all these orders are coming from the extra-terrestrials. My last city is the U.S. we are home to many conspiracy theories but the moon landing in 1969, strike me the most interesting. According to CNN and scientific American, the moon landing was an all a big hoax, to try and beat the soviet to the moon. It was believed that whoever won the space race won the cold war. They give man inconsistency’s that show how the landing is being faked, like shadows, footprints, no blast craters, and pictures that look photo shopped. These discoveries made me think more about the events I looked up. I also started to question them after a while of thinking. They changed me, to where I am more aware of things happening around me and they make me want to know more.
I value this topic because it’s important to take away new knowledge of things I researched and looked at, and then if you are asked and you want to share your knowledge, you can. For my real world application I interviewed my grandparents about the Apollo moon landing and asked them a series of questions about what they think. This changed me because I want to let more people know about what’s going on. People need to know the other side of the story and not just go off of what the government says. I hope that people just listen with an open mind and maybe think more about it.
I hope that people just listen to what I have to say and think about it. I’m worried that some people might take offense to it. We can all just think about it and don’t always believe what you’re told just because a higher power says so.
