060280 01: Astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin poses next to the U.S. flag July 20, 1969 on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission.

July 20th marks the anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing in 1969. But there are many people who question if it really happen? While it’s widely discussed, is it one of the most popular conspiracy theories in North Carolina?

Well, BetKansas.com revealed America’s most popular conspiracy theories across each state. They did this through the utilization of Google Search Trends over the last decade to see the most searched and talked about theories.

When major events happen that change the world and people’s lives it can be difficult to come to terms with so people often start to ask why, and how and look for explanations that maybe make sense than the official narratives. Conspiracy theories often gain traction and anyone in power denying them just adds fuel to the fire. Do I believe every theory is true? No, some of them are just too out there. But I do think that odds are some are true. Will we ever know the truth? Probably not. The movie buff in me hopes that National Treasure’s theory of the President’s Book of Secrets is true and maybe one day someone would release it. But I don’t expect that to happen. How interesting it would be though!

I know the stories that intrigue me but are they the same conspiracy theories the rest of North Carolina is interested in? Let’s find out!

  • Most Popular Conspiracy Theories In North Carolina

  • 5. Coronavirus

    Coming in at number 5 on this list is the most recent theory- what has controlled so much of our lives for the past few years- Coronavirus. The documentary Plandemic certainly helped fuel the fire on this one. Many people believe there is evidence that the Covid-19 virus was created in a laboratory not in an animal market as was first reported.

    Some believe that 5G is somehow responsible for the virus. Many have questions about the vaccine and how heavily it was pushed. Also adding to the suspicion of many was the silencing of any alternate views on social media platforms.

  • 4. The Illuminati

    I have to say this is one I want to do a deep dive into. I don’t quite understand the background but I know that many many things are blamed on this group. But here is what I do know.

    The illuminati is the name given to a secret group of individuals who are believed to control significant world events while manipulating other aspects of society. The first reports of such an organization date back to around 1776. Which would be the same time as the birth of America. It’s said that at that time some Bavarians decided to oppose state and religious influence and instead implement their own ideologies into society.

    The group quickly was While the original Illuminati was quickly stamped out but many Americans still believe they are present today. They also believe that they are behind many of the most influential events in history. Many prominent leaders are theorized to be members including Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and George W. Bush.

  • 3. JFK’s Assassination

    This is probably the first conspiracy theory I ever remember hearing. And North Carolina seems to believe it as it ranks 3rd.

    We all know the story. President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed by Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22, 1963. Just two days later Lee Harvey Oswald was also shot and killed, leaving the public with no answers on why he did it, and why he was also shot.

    Consequently, many people do not believe the official narrative of what happened, leading to a vast number of conspiracy theories throughout the years. Some of the ones with the most traction are that the CIA was behind it. Or the Mafia, Fidel Castro, or even Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson.

  • 2. Denver Airport

    This one is wild. Though I have to saw with a different choice in art at the airport much of this could have been avoided. If you’ve seen it, it’s creepy and you’ll never forget it. The gist of the theory is that it houses the New World Order possibly in a secret underground compound.

    Many cite the airport’s enormous size as evidence it must be used for something other than just an airport. It’s 53 square miles which is twice the size of Manhattan, and bigger than Fort Worth International and Orlando International airports combined. Those are the next two largest U.S. airports. Some say the shape of the runways resembles a swastika and that construction went significantly over budget. All of those factors, combined with the art showing burning trees, children in coffins, and even a gas-masked soldier, has led to these sinister theories.

  • 1. 9/11 Was Planned

    It is widely considered to be the darkest day in American history. September 11, 2001. If you were alive that day you remember exactly where you were and much of the hours to follow. Approximately 3,000 individuals lost their lives that day and our world was forever changed. But many in North Carolina don’t believe that all of this destruction was caused by a few terrorists in planes.

    Many conspiracies allege our own government involvement. Some believe there is no way the planes and jet fuel could have caused the collapse of the towers. They believe there were actually controlled demolitions of the buildings. Why? Some say the stock market or a reason to invade Afghanistan.
