Conspiracy theories

(can be true or false or a mix of both. So we need good common sence to discern them)

Theory
True or False ?

God told Noah that a big flood will come and asked him to build the ark on the top of a mountain.

  Noah needed 120 years to build the ark. In this time he also warned the people. But nobody believed him.
  Only Noah and his family were saved.

God ask the prophet Jonah to go to the city of Nineveh and tell the people there, that the city will be destroyed.

  Jonah finally goes to Nineveh and tells the people, that God will destroy their city.
  But the king and the people   of   Nineveh repent and God doesn’t destroy them.
  God scolds Jonah, because Jonah didn’t feel mercy for the people.

Armageddon – Final battle between God’s forces and evil forces at end of history according „Book of Revelation“

  Spiritual and physical battles in 20th and 21st century still going on, on a worldwide level between religious,              democratic nations and communistic, dictaturship nations.

Antisemitism


Since the Middle Ages, antisemitism has featured elements of conspiracy theory. The 19th century saw the           emergence of notions that Jews and/or Freemasons were plotting to establish control over the world. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (1903), outlines a supposed plot by Jews to control the world. Such conspiracy theories became central to the worldview of Adolf Hitler. Antisemitic theories persist today in notions concerning for example a purported Zionist Occupation Government.

Illuminati

Theories concerning the Illuminati, a short-lived 18th-century Enlightenment-era secret society, appear to have originated in the late 19th century, when some conservatives in Europe came to believe that the group had been responsible for the French Revolution of 1789–1799. Hoaxes about the Illuminati were later spread in the 1960s by a group of American practical jokers known as the Discordians, who wrote a series of fake letters about the Illuminati to Playboy.

COVID-19 pandemic

Several theories have been promoted about the origin and purported motive behind the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its spread. Some claimed that the virus was engineered, that it may have been a Chinese or United States bioweapon, a population control scheme or related to 5G mobile phone networks. The origins of SARS-CoV-2 are still uncertain. In 2020, there was consensus that it reached humans through zoonotic transmission from bats. However, in 2021, the possibility that the virus spread to humans via a lab leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology began to be seriously investigated.
