    I did this in my political science recitation a few years back, but its basically a list of the top conspiracy theories of the last 50 years and everyone write
    YES = you think a conspiracy was involved
    or
    NO = you think it went down just as it is described in the history books.

    List

    1. Roswell Alien Landing in Roswell, NM
    2. John F. Kennedy Assassination, Mob and/or CIA and/or a Military - Industrial Combine
    3. Martin L. King Assassination, Mob and/or CIA and/or a Military - Industrial Combine
    4. Robert Kennedy Assassination by Mob and/or CIA and/or a Military - Industrial Combine
    5. Illuminati / Trilateral Commission is the shadow government
    6. NSA intercepts/ screens all domestic telecommunications transmissions with the Echelon Project (currently the government needs reasonable doubt).
    7. Project HAARP by the USAF is a weather control weapon
    8. Israel has nuclear weapons given by the United States
    9. 9-11 was perpetuated with a helping hand from the U.S. government
    10. Steven Jobs was sent to earth by God

    Also list your reasons.

    I'd have a hard time calling 8 a conspiracy...it's gotta be one of the worst kept "secrets" on earth

    For number 8, do you know what the word "perpetuated" actually means?

    I think that I mainly agree with carbonmotion's answers, except for #10.

    Clearly, God was sent into heaven by Steve Jobs.

    It is number 8. The Black Hand Gang, working in conjunction with Eric Clapton and the Underground Railroad, just want you to BELIEVE it is number 9.
