16. The Moscow apartment Bombings - Former GRU officer Aleksey Galkin and the late former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko (who was killed with Polonium-210 in London in November 2006) and other whistle-blowers from the Russian government and security services have asserted that the 1999 Russian Apartment Bombings operations were perpetrated by the FSB, the successor to the KGB, to justify the second Russian war against Chechnya.

17. Black or unmarked helicopters - The concept became popular in the American militia movement, and in associated political circles, in the 1990s as an Alleged symbol and warning sign of a military takeover of part or all of the United States. Rumors would circulate that, for instance, the United Nations patrolled the U.S. with black helicopters, or that federal agents used black helicopters to enforce wildlife laws. In Britain, a similar conspiracy theory known as "phantom helicopters" has been reported since the mid 1970s. This concept relates phantom helicopters to UFOs and alien invasion rather than to martial law.

18. Harold Wilson was a Soviet agent - Soviet Defector Anatoliy Golitsyn is thought to have claimed that Wilson was a KGB spy. He further claimed that Hugh Gaitskell was assassinated by the KGB so that he could be replaced as Labor leader by Harold Wilson. Furthermore, former MI5 officer Peter Wright claimed in his memoirs - Spycatcher - that he had been told that Wilson was a Soviet agent. MI5 Wilson repeatedly investigated over the course of several years before conclusively decide that he had no relationship with the KGB. On the BBC TV program, The Plot Against Harold Wilson, broadcast in 2006, it was claimed that the military was on the point of launching a coup d'etat against Wilson in 1974. Wilson himself told the BBC that he feared he was being undermined by MI5 in the late 1960s after Devaluations or sterling and again in 1974 after he narrowly won an election against Edward Heath.

9. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion - Despite being utterly discredited for at least 100 years, belief in this document has proved remarkably resilient on the Internet. The text takes the form of an instruction manual to a new member of the "other," describe how they will run the world through control of the media and finance, and replace the traditional social order with one based on mass manipulation. Scholars generally agree that the Okhrana, the secret police of the Russian Empire, fabricated the text in the late 1890s or early 1900s but still persiste belief in it - particularly in the Middle East.

20. The peak oil conspiracy - Peak oil (a theory in itself) is the supposed peak of oil production during and after which demand for oil supply breaks outs sending prices through the roof. The peak oil conspiracy theorists believe that peak oil is a fraud concocted by the oil industries to increase prices amid concerns about future supplies. The oil industry is aware or untapped oil reserves or down, but does not utilisé them in order to maintain the illusion of scarcity, they claim.

21. Pearl Harbor was allowed to happen - theorists believe that President Franklin Roosevelt provoked the Japanese attack on the U.S. naval base in Hawaii in December 1941, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn his fleet commanders. He apparently needed the attack to provoke Hitler into declare war on the U.S. because the American public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. Theorists believe that the U.S. was warned by the governments of Britain, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, Korea and the Soviet Union that a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor was coming and that, furthermore, the Americans had intercepted and broken all the important Japanese codes in the run up to the attack.

22. The Philadelphia Experiment - Charles Berlitz Popularised by the novel of the same name, conspiracy theorists believe that during an experiment at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in October 1943, the U.S. Navy destroyer Eldridge was rendered invisible. According to some accounts, the scientists on the experiment found a way to bend light around an object but that the experiment went wrong and Eldridge was transported through space and time, reappearing at sea. Several sailors, it is said, were badly hurt when the experiment went wrong and some were melded into the ship's superstructure. The U.S. Navy has denied that the experiment ever took place.

23. Pan Am Flight 103 - Pan Am Flight 103 was Pan American's third daily scheduled transatlantic flight from Heathrow to New York John F. Kennedy International Airport. On December 21, 1988, the aircraft flying this route - a Boeing 747 - was destroyed by a bomb, killing all 259 people on board and 11 people on the ground. The remains landed around Lockerbie in southern Scotland. A popular theory for which no evidence has been produced that suggests the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had set up a protected drug route from Europe to the United States - allegedly called Operation Corea - which allowed Syrian drug dealers to ship heroin to the U.S. using Pan Am flights. The CIA allegedly protected the suitcases containing the drugs and made sure they were not searched. On the day of the bombing, terrorists exchanged suitcases: one with drugs for one with a bomb. Another version of this theory is that the CIA knew in advance this exchange would take place, but let it happen anyway, because the protected drug route was a rogue operation, and the American intelligence officers on the flight had found out about it, and were on their way to Washington to tell their superiors.

24. Fluoridation - Fluoride is commonly added to drinking water as a way to reduce tooth decay. However, there has been some evidence that there could be some harmful side effects from fluoride and conspiracy theorists believe that this information is known and recognized by those responsible for adding the fluoride, but that they continue the practice regardless. Drug companies have been targeted as possible beneficiaries, as they will profit from a population with ill-health. Another motive is that fluoride Lowers mental abilities thereby "dumbing down" the entire population.

25. The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami - A popular theory in the Muslim world is that the tsunami could have been caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which Israeli and American nuclear experts participated. Several newspapers in Egypt and the Middle East Alleged that India, in its heated nuclear race with Pakistan, has acquired sophisticated nuclear technology from the U.S. and Israel, both of which "showed readiness to co-operate with India in experiments to exterminate human child," beginning with the heavily populated Muslim regions of Southeast Asia, where the bulk of casual ties took place.

26. Plastic Coffin and concentration camps - Just outside Atlanta, Georgia, beside a major road are approximately 500,000 plastic Coffin. Stacked neatly and in full view, the Coffin åre allegedly owned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema). Conspiracy theorists believe that Fema has also set up several concentration camps in the U.S. in preparation for the imposition of a state of martial law and the killing of millions of Americans. They suggest that the financial crisis will be used to justify the imposition of a police state.

27. HAARP - More than 200 miles east of Anchorage, Alaska, is the Pentagon's High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, officially an enormous experiment to heat the ionosphere with radio waves. But conspiracy theorists believe the project is a weapon to bring down aircraft and missiles by lifting sections of the atmosphere, cause earthquakes or even a huge weather modification machine.

28. The AIDS virus was created in a laboratory - Based on the theories of Dr. William Campbell Douglass, many believe that that HIV was genetically engineered in 1974 by the World Health Organization. Dr Douglass believed that it was a cold-blooded attempt to create a killer virus which was then used in a successful experiment in Africa. Others have claimed that it was created by the CIA or the KGB as a means to reduce world population.

9. Global warming is a hoax - Some climate change doubters believe that man-made global warming is a conspiracy designed to soften up the world's population to higher taxation, controls on lifestyle and more authoritarian government. These sceptics cite a fall in global temperatures since last year and a leveling off in the rise in temperature since 1998 as evidence.

30. Chem Trails - Trail Chem conspiracy theorists believe that some container rails, which consist of ice crystals or water vapor condensed behind aircraft, actually result from chemicals or biological agents being deliberately sprayed at high altitude for some undisclosed purpose. The staple of right-wing radio shows in the U.S., there has been fevered speculation that the chemicals being sprayed are part of a wider plot that involves the so-called New World Order and is being directed by shadowy forces within the government. The existence of chemtrails has been repeatedly denied by federal agencies and scientists.
