NASA admits they lost the video of the first lunar landing. And NASA isn't worried that using a Hollywood-based company to recreate the tapes might fuel the fire of conspiracy theorists who believe the entire lunar program that landed people on the moon six times between 1969 and 1972 was staged on a movie set or secret military base. Might? Well, of course it will. Any fact or coincidence that can be stretched to fit into a conspiracy theory will fuel it.
I thought it would be fun to recall some of the great conspiracy theories of my lifetime.
The Kennedy Assassination
The Lunar Landing
Alien Abductions and Encounters of all kinds, including Venusian infiltrators
9/11, particularly the attack on the Pentagon
It seems to me that all of these conspiracy theories have an element in common. Mistrust of government. They are, essentially, anti-government myths, spawned by people who oppose the administration in power or government in general.
