* Many theories about the terrorist attack on the US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi, Libya in September 2012 lean towards conspiracy theory. Reasonable critics suggest that President Barack Obama (and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton) failed to provide sufficient protection against attack, whether through [[HanlonsRazor simple oversight or underestimating the danger posed by Libyan extremists]]. Not satisfied with this mundane explanation, many conservatives imply (in fact, some outright state) that Clinton and Obama ordered a deliberate stand down of Mission security, then refused to authorize a rescue as the attack took place. Why Obama and Clinton would invite such an attack or allow terrorists to murder their Ambassador and his staff goes unsaid, except by the most fringe theorists who postulate they did it ForTheEvulz.

This issue dogged Clinton in particular throughout her 2016 presidential campaign.

The theory goes like this: somehow, the magical divinatory powers of numerology can be used to take random passages from Literature/TheBible, add them up, maybe multiply or divide, and get the name of the TheAntichrist, his most secret intentions, his right-hand man, the country he'll be born in, his shoe-size, and the exact date of when the world will end. It's such a persistent idea that even the most brilliant people have bought into it -- IsaacNewton was particularly obsessed with it, going so far as to translate the Book of Daniel from Hebrew himself in order to be absolutely ''certain'' of his predictions. As for how accurate those predictions were, we'll just have to wait and see.

* ''TimeCube''. Gene Ray believes that any rejection of his theories by academic institutions is the result of this, and not because the only research shown on his site is crudely drawn squares, apparently representing Earth.

***It kind of does, in a weird racist way. If humans originated in Africa, then spread to other continents and "evolved some more" then black people are the prototype, and other races are "more advanced."

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vela_Incident The Vela Incident]]. In 1979 a satellite detected a double-flash of light which some speculated was an unauthorised nuclear test near Bouvet Island, inspiring a couple of novels, and perhaps the choice of location for ''Franchise/AlienVsPredator''.

** ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebb'' look had a rather similar ending in a sketch wherein three people plotted to fake the moon landing. They concluded that, since it would actually be cheaper to send people to the moon (given that they'd need to build the largest cost, the massive rocket, anyway to make it look authentic and catering for three astronauts would be less expensive than catering for a film crew), they should fake the moon landing footage on the moon.
