The Top 8 “Conspiracy Theories” That Are Turning Out To Be True

Published

on

Conspiracy Theory: It’s a term used by many to brush off something that clashes with what they believe in, or have believed in, for a long period of time. Taking in new information that runs counter to a current belief system is not easy and can result in cognitive dissonance — a term used in modern psychology to describe the feeling of discomfort that arises from being confronted with two or more conflicting ideas, beliefs, or values. It suggests that we have an inner drive to hold on to all of our beliefs and attitudes, avoiding the feelings of discomfort and instability that accompany new ideas, regardless of whether those ideas are backed by evidence and sound logic.

Why do we always believe, without consideration, what is presented to us through mainstream sources? Why do we hold it to be true, without question? Why is it so common for many of us to not even acknowledge, listen, or look at evidence that runs counter to the accepted ideology? To ignore available information that presents an alternative to what is so commonly believed by many, or what we ourselves believe can place the human race in a very vulnerable state? Even if there is an overwhelming amount of evidence, many find alternative ideas easy to dismiss.

Below is a list of events and phenomena that are or have been considered “conspiracy theories” by the general population, all of which can be backed up by an impressive amount of research and testimonies from experts in their respective fields.

It’s unfortunate that our world has been riddled with lies, misinformation, and fraud. It’s no secret that if you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.

“Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.”

These are in no particular order, as they are all significant in their own right.

The Black Budget 

Prior to Edward Snowden (the former NSA employee who leaked classified information), if you told somebody you thought there existed what seems to be a separate civilization — a part of humanity that broke off in secret, and is thousands, if not millions, of years more advanced than the mainstream academic/scientific/technical world — there is absolutely no doubt you would have been brushed off as a crazy conspiracy theorist.

But when Snowden leaked the very first documentation proving the existence of clandestine black budget operations, that all changed. Despite these recent leaks, many are still unaware of the black budget world, and the fact that it had been investigated and talked about before these leaks.

We have published an article that goes in-depth and is well sourced regarding this topic. You can read that article HERE.

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex.  The potential for a disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry, can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defence, with our peaceful message and goals.”

–  Dwight Eisenhower, former Five Star General and President of the United States (source)

9/11

The tragedy that unfolded on September 11th, 2001 was horrific. To this day and despite the fact that many of the victims’ families themselves question the events of that day, many still consider anyone suspicious of 9/11 to be a conspiracy theorist. It’s important to mention that the mainstream media has played a large part in pushing this idea, that anybody who questions what happened on that day is “nuts.”

According to the latest polls, more than 150 million people in America do not believe the official explanation given to them by their government when it comes to 9/11, and the same amount actually suspect a controlled demolition of World Trade Centre building  7. Think about that for a moment. (A simple Google search will show you a number of polls that have taken place over the years.)

There is a tremendous amount of evidence to support all of these claims, and others, like the fact that the supposed “Al-Qaeda” terrorist group was in fact a creation of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). And yet, many people have a hard time hearing about, let alone thinking about, these realities.

We’ve written about this topic in detail, and you can check out some of these articles for more information to see why the questioning of 9/11 is far from a conspiracy theory, by clicking HERE.

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs)

As with 9/11, in the United States alone, at least half of all Americans say that we’re not alone in the universe. Fifty percent of Americans already believe that there is some form of life on other planets, while only 17% think that there is not. A quarter of Americans believe that intelligent extraterrestrial visitors have already come to Earth and have been doing so for a long time. (Source in article linked below.)

Why do people believe this? The answer is simple. As former Princeton professor and NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary remarked, “there is abundant evidence” (source) clearly indicating that there is something going on in our atmosphere and around our planet which, as Director of Operations for Bigelow Aerospace Mike Gold puts it, deserves serious attention. (source)

The evidence comes in the form of statements made by high ranking military and political personnel, academicians, and more. It also comes in the form of official documents released by dozens of countries officially acknowledging and disclosing the existence of UFOs.

We’ve written about this topic in depth, and to view some of this evidence you can click HERE.

Geo-Engineering and Solar Radiation Management Via Stratospheric Spraying

Also known as “chemtrails,” the idea of injecting stratospheric particles into the atmosphere to combat the effects of climate change is very real.

Dr. Matthew Watson, PhD, a researcher in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol, is one of many scientists who are warning against this practice.

“If we ever deploy these technologies it will be the closest indication yet that we’ve failed as planetary stewards. While it is clear that temperatures could be reduced during deployment, the misstep is considerable. Personally, this stuff terrifies me.”

– Dr. Watson

(You can read more about that HERE.)

This idea is far from a conspiracy theory,

Some of the candidate particles to spray in the air are:

  • Sulphate/Sulphuric Acid/Sulphur Dioxide
  • Titanium dioxide
  • Silicon Carbide
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Alumina
  • Silica
  • Zinc Oxide

But are these programs operational? Well, the weather was modified using these techniques for the Olympic games in China, and if you are an observer of skies and a researcher of geo-engineering, you’ll know that there is a sufficent amount of evidence to suggest that spraying is already occuring.

“In recent years there has been a decline in the support for weather modification research, and a tendency to move directly into operational projects.”

–  World Meteorological Association (source)

With all of the information available in the public domain, it’s clear that this topic deservers our utmost attention. Yet there is still a harsh resistance by the mainstream, who often ridicule this topic, despite all of the information that is out there.

For more detailed information regarding this topic, you can read some of our articles about it HERE.

A Small Group of Elite People and the Corporations They Run Own Everything

Not that long ago, if you were to tell anyone that a small group of people and the corporations they run controlled all the world’s resources, you would have received some decidedly ‘weird’ looks. Fortunately, thanks to recent global protests like the Occupy Wall Street Movement, more people have become aware of what is known as the “one percent.” That percentage represents the people who have access to the most wealth on the planet.

The same group of elite are in control of our health, finances, education, food, politics, media, and financial industries, and they contribute to the military industrial complex. It’s clear that there are many problems within these industries that affect us on a daily basis.

This was also demonstrated by three systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. They published a study titled “The Network Of Global Corporate Control” about a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy. (source)

Here is a great clip that relates to this topic by Foster Gamble, taken from the Thrive documentary.

Water Fluoridation

There is a reason why so many countries and communities around the world have recently stopped the practice of putting fluoride into their drinking water.

We are not talking about naturally occurring fluoride that is already found in water; we are talking about hydrofluorosilicic acid, a toxic industrial waste by-product that governments have been adding to our drinking water for over sixty years.

“If this stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.” (source) 

– Former VP and Senior Chemist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters

In fact, one of the most credible medical journals in the world recently classified it as a neurotoxin. You can read more about that here.

“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.” (source) 

– Dr. Dean Burk, biochemist, Founder of Biotin, and former Chief Chemist at the National Cancer Institute of Health

We have written about this topic extensively. You can read more articles regarding water fluoridation HERE

Here is a documentary we made about the subject:

Over-Unity Energy

Despite many people opposing this idea, constantly citing the law of conservation of energy, multiple papers have been published in various peer reviewed journals showing that yes, extracting energy from the vacuum is possible. You can find these in the articles linked below.

“The concept that efficiencies cannot be greater than 100% is due to an incomplete understanding of the properties of space. The second law of thermodynamics must be modified to account for the fact that space is not empty, as has been taught for the last 150 years.”

– Toby Grotz, engineer and researcher of new energy technologies since 1973

Collective Evolution has been lucky enough to have been covering a story, and working with Toby Grotz and Paramahamsa Tewari, to help create more awareness about this. Tewari has invented an over-unity machine. We have assisted them in building the website and we are extrememly honoured to help spread the word: tewari.org 

We encourage all those who are reading this to check it out.

Do you really think that these brilliant scientists and engineers would devote their entire lives to something that did not show potential, or something that is not real? This concept is, again, still faced with fierce resistance, but this will all change, and for the sake of the planet it has to, so stay tuned!

You can view pictures of the machine at the site above. It won’t be long until we are showing you a video of it ourselves.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

Few things exemplify more absolutely the fact that we are living in a world of deception, manipulation, and fraudulent science than GMOs. Over the past few years, a number of studies (both independent and peer-reviewed) have emerged that clearly outline why GMOs should not be approved as completely safe for human consumption. Despite this fact, their status has not changed.

The truth of their danger was also demonstrated by the March Against Monsanto, a worldwide protest where millions of people around the world gather every year to peacefully protest the biotech giants.

There is a reason why so many countries around the world have now completely banned GMOs and the pesticides that go with them.

“As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe.”

Corey Feldman To Release Documentary On The ‘Biggest Problem In Hollywood’ – Pedophilia

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Child actor Corey Feldman recently released a trailer for his upcoming documentary "(My) Truth: The Rape of Two Corey's" that is set to expose his experience with pedophilia as a child actor in Hollywood.

  • Reflect On:

    For years this problem has continued, and does today. How does it continue to happen with so much awareness? How much power do these people have? Who are they connected to?

The topic of pedophilia and the trafficking of children has gained a lot of attention within the past year alone, more than we’ve ever seen from the mainstream. This is due in large part to revelations like the entire Jeffrey Epstein/Prince Andrew Saga, which brought even more attention to this issue. Another example is the rampant child porn haring that’s been happening within the Pentagon.

And so there is a growing awareness to the fact that this type of activity is going on in places of high power amongst many people who seem to be above the law. Fortunately we have seen some prosecutions, like the recent conviction of the Vatican’s Cardinal George Pell for sexually abusing children. The list is long. In fact, more details have emerged suggesting that one of Epstein’s main jobs was to entrap high profile people into committing these very types of crimes. You can read more about that specifically here.

Hollywood

When it comes to Hollywood specifically, Harvey Weinstein and recent Kevin Spacey allegations have been responsible for bringing even more awareness to the problem of sexual abuse, and it’s not surprising that Weinstein roamed within the same circles as Epstein, as you can see here.

Smallville actress Allison Mack’s role as a lead member of the NXIVM sex cult also brought attention to the issue. She worked for owner Keith Raniere helping to recruit people into what appeared on the surface to be executive success programs designed to empower people, but within the inner circle was something much different. Raniere was arrested, along with Mack, in March 2018 in Mexico on charges of sex trafficking. This group also has strange connections to the powerful elite, as Billionaire heiress Clare Bronfman was involved, and was indicted on racketeering charges. Rolling Stone reported:

“There are strange political connections as well. Mark Vicente, a documentary filmmaker and former high-ranking member of the group, testified at the trial of NXIVM head Keith Raniere that Clare Bronfman, the billionaire Seagram’s heiress and alleged benefactor of the organization, approached him and a few other members of the group to help her make a contribution to a Clinton campaign.” (source)

So, as you can see, all this is connected in some very strange ways.

Corey Feldman

A few years ago, one of the biggest child actors of all time, Corey Feldman, gave an interview stating that pedophilia is actually the biggest problem in Hollywood. He’s obviously not the only one from Hollywood who has raised these types of concerns, and he comes from a place of direct experience being one of the biggest child actors of all time.

For a number of years now, he’s been on a mission to expose what’s happening in Hollywood, and what has happened in Hollywood and he’s gone about it very carefully. Now, it’s all culminates in a documentary that’s set to be released on March 9th. During the process, Feldman has been quite outspoken about how hard the process has been, which includes numerous death threats against him and his family and constant requests for him to stop what he’s doing. Obviously there are some very powerful people out there who are afraid of being exposed.

“I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was, and is, and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem, for children in this industry. . . . It’s all done under the radar . . . it’s the big secret. I was surrounded by them when I was 14 years old . . . they were everywhere, like vultures.” (source)

– Corey Feldman

Since Feldman’s allegations, more victims seem to have come forward. A couple of years ago, the LAPD announced were investigating  28 big name Hollywood moguls for multiple sex crimes. You can read more about that here.

 “Never before has the department received so many sexual assault allegations involving high-profile figures at one time, including many complex cases that are years old with multiple alleged victims.”–LA Times

The trailer for his documentary is below. The title of the documentary is “(My) Truth: The Rape of Two Corey’s,” in memory of his best friend, fellow child star Corey Haim, who has since passed. You can watch a recent interview with Corey and his wife regarding the film, here. And you can follow Corey on twitter for updates, here.

The Issue Goes Much Deeper Based on Our Research

The term “ritual” hasn’t been mentioned in the mainstream. On November 12, 2012 the former Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, set into motion a Royal Commission to inquire into institutional responses to child abuse. Five years later, in December 2017, the Royal Commission presented its final report to the government, an absolutely damning indictment against institutions that dealt with children, including the Catholic Church. As a result, the current Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, delivered a public apology on October 22, 2018.  You can read more about that story here.

“The crimes of ritual sexual abuse happened in schools, churches, youth groups, scout troops, orphanages, foster homes, sporting clubs, group homes, charities, and in family homes as well.” Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison

A paper published in European Psychiatry titled The cremation of care ritual: Burning of effigies or human sacrifice murder? The importance of differentiating complex trauma from schizophrenia in extreme abuse settings” by Dr. Rainer Kurz, explains, a chartered occupational psychologist (Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) at The University of Manchester. Master of Science (MSc) Industrial Psychology at The University of Hull)

In the wake of institutional abuse enquiries and the ‘unbelievable’ child abuse perpetrated by celebrities like Jimmy Saville and Ian Watkins, a ‘new reality’ is setting in that child abuse is pervasive and knows no limits. Reports of elaborate rituals with ‘mock’ human sacrifices at the highly secretive annual ‘Bohemian Grove’ summer festival point towards a pervasive interest in the occult in high society. Mental health professionals have a ‘duty of care’ towards their service users. Unless clear and irrefutable counter-evidence is available it is inappropriate to claim that disclosures of extreme abuse and/or human sacrifice rituals are ‘delusions’ and indicative of Schizophrenia.

When it comes to these pedophile rings and what goes on within them,  the paper linked above cites multiple papers and explains multiple cases:

Epstein, Schwartz & Schwartz (2011) described cases of ‘Forced Impregnation’ by cult members which were followed by Human Sacrifice rituals. They also described UK based abuse groups forced ‘child-on child’ sex abuse salient to the case. Scott (2001) described the casual ease with which some abuse perpetrations torture and kill. 36 survivors completed her survey of whom 34 claimed abuse by members of their immediate family, and 21 by one or both parents. For 34 ritual abuse in childhood involved murder and for 16 involved forced childbirth/abortion. Bekker, Karriker, Overkamp and Rutz (2008) found in their extreme abuse survey that ‘forced impregnation’ by 40 % of 1041 of adult survivors and 33 % of  82 child survivors, and disclosed to 70 percent of 221 professionals bearing witness. Murder of a ‘breeder baby’ by the perpetrators was reported by 26%, 18% and 55% respectively. Witnessing murder by perpetrators was reported 56%, 43% and 77% respectively.

Research eventually led to the Franklin scandal that broke in 1989 when hundreds of children were apparently flown around the US to be abused by high ranking ‘Establishment’ members. Former state senator John W DeCamp, cited as one of the most effective legislators in Nebraska history, is today attorney for two of the abuse victims. A 15 year old girl disclosed that she had been abused since the age of 9 and was exposed since the age of 9 and was exposed to ‘ritual murder’ of a new born girl, a small boy (who was subsequently fried and eaten) and three others.

The Nurse Cat From Poland Who Looks After Sick & Injured Animals In A Shelter

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Rademenes is a little black cat that has miraculously escaped death after a very close call caused by an upper-respiratory infection. A few years ago he made headlines when his story got out about how he comforts other sick animals.

  • Reflect On:

    We have so much to learn from animals, and we have no right to abuse them in any way.

This is just a simple heartwarming story to hopefully make your day! Rademenes is a little black cat that has miraculously escaped death after a very close call caused by an upper-respiratory infection. He was originally brought to an animal shelter in Bydgoszcz, a city in Poland, to be euthanized, but against all odds, this little black kitty survived. Now with a second chance at life, Rademenes has decided to give back, and spends his days taking care of other animals in the shelter that he was originally admitted to. Workers at this shelter jokingly call this friendly kitty one of their “full-time nurses,” as he provides love and comfort to sick and injured animals. Read on for more of this heartwarming story!

Rademenes is often seen cuddling up and caring for the sick animals that come into the shelter…

Apple Fined £21,000,000 For Deliberately Slowing Down Older iPhone Models

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Apple was caught deliberately slowing down and degrading the battery life of older iPhone models.

  • Reflect On:

    What causes us to create products that are useless after just a year or two? Are we greedy? Or is our economy forcing constant growth and the need to keep raising profits just to stay alive and keep shareholders happy?

An investigation launched in January 2018 determined that Apple had used a software update in order to deliberately slow down older iPhone models. Even though Apple admitted to this accusation, they claim it was done in an effort to try and help preserve the battery life of the phone.

The investigation was undertaken by a consumer watchdog from France, and now Apple will face the wrath of France’s Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and the Suppression of Fraud (DGCCRF), who recently announced this on their website.

The DGCCRF has indeed shown that iPhone owners had not been informed that the updates of the iOS operating system (10.2.1 and 11.2) they installed were likely to slow down the operation of their device.

These updates, released during 2017, included a dynamic power management device which, under certain conditions and especially when the batteries were old, could slow down the functioning of the iPhone 6, SE models and 7.

Unable to revert to the previous version of the operating system, many consumers would have been forced to change their batteries or even buy a new phone.

Apple has not yet commented on this conclusion. However according to the DGCCRF, they have accepted the fine.

advertisement - learn more

Apple’s Apology

In 2017, when the investigation began, Apple attempted to save face with their consumers by posting the following apology:

We have never — and would never — do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades.

We’ve been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize. There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about the issue so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.

Along with this apology, Apple announced that the company would reduce the cost of the replacement batteries for iPhone 6s and later editions that are out of warranty. They reduced the price from $79 to $29 and this was available anywhere Apple products were sold until December 2018.

Planned Obsolescence?

If you are unfamiliar with this term, it is used to describe a practice companies often use when designing their products, designing them with the intention of having them break down so that consumers will have to repeatedly purchase the product more often. From a business standpoint, it makes sense, if the consumer only had to buy each product once in their life, that wouldn’t be very good for business. But having it deliberately break down every couple of years ensures that the consumer will keep buying it over and over again.

The term ‘perceived obsolescence’ refers to products that are seemingly out of date, and thus the consumer makes the decision to replace the item, even if it’s still in perfect working condition. We all know Apple is famous for this. We see images of people waiting in line overnight, in the cold, just to get the latest model, even though their current model is just fine. Considering Apple comes out with a new model at least every year, all the company would have to do is market it correctly, adding just the right features to persuade the consumer that they must have it. In this day and age, that’s pretty easy to do as we often want the latest and greatest thing to satisfy our constant yearning for more.

Irresponsible or A Factor of Our Economy?

It is great to know that organizations such as the DGCCRF exist, so that these massive corporations can be held accountable for their actions. Not only are these types of business practices deceptive and unfair to the consumer, but from an environmental standpoint, they are destructive. When you consider the amount of resources, manpower, time, and money that are put into these products just to have them deliberately break down, there is very little upside to this tactic other than to keep making more money. This is a clear example of how our species is disconnected from themselves and the world.

We must then ask: what really creates these decisions? Is it greed? The need to stay alive? The need for companies to always post profits? Which then leads us to ask, if we built an economic system where everything gets more expensive every year, and where companies always are forced to do better, doesn’t this mean that we will always have to find ways to cut corners and get people to buy? The thinking of scarcity, which creates and economy based on scarcity is not going to be solved by policy, but a rejection and change in our economic system as a whole. This is course will only come from us changing our thinking first though.

The fact of the matter is that there is technology that exists now that can last much longer than what we currently have available to us. We choose as a whole to use lower quality products just so we can keep our scarcity-based and destructive economic system alive.

This is why we made our latest film called Regenerate: Beyond The CO2 Narrative. It’s a look at our environmental issues from a whole new perspective, one that truly aims to solve the issues we face instead of simply blaming CO2 and working to maintain a scarcity-based economy.
