Course Description

Throughout history there have been an inordinate number of monumental events, both good and bad, such as catastrophes, government coups, assassinations, great advances in science, economic depressions, and inventions that have changed our lives.  In virtually all of these events, peoples of the world have asked themselves if these events occurred naturally, as part of the natural cycle of the world's development, or if they have been planned in secret by a small group of people intent on hiding the truth. 

 

In this course, we will examine some of the most influential conspiracy theories in history, dealing with some of the world's most historic events, such as the NASA Moon Landing, the assassination of John K. Kennedy, the horrific Tuskegee Experiments, top secret government programs, and even the conspiracy behind the Loch Ness Monster. 

 

By its very definition, conspiracy means to form an "agreement" among people.  In this case, it is an agreement, usually, to deceive.  There are two views of history:  an accidental view and a conspiratorial view.  In the first view, people do not conspire to affect history.  In this view, catastrophes and other monumental events happen as a result of natural forces.  In the conspiratorial view, a small group of people exert their power to directly affect an outcome that will increase their power or benefit themselves in other ways.
