These are just some examples of things about which conspiracy theories abound, yet none of them have ever really been proven to exist in nature.
It's fascinating, isn't it, how something becomes part of our working knowledge of a situation, at first danced around speculatively before enough has been said so that by some sort of osmosis it takes root in our brains as fact?
