Fads come and go, but human fascination with conspiracy theories is forever.

From the assassination of John F. Kennedy to the moon landing, TikTok and the rest of the internet are bursting with countless conspiracy theories too interesting to ignore.

Why are people so fascinated with conspiracy theories?

Maybe because they offer an "explanation" for unexplainable, disturbing, or sensational events. When something too hard to make sense of happens, it's natural for people to look for a reason behind it.

In a way, conspiracy theories are to us what Greek mythology was to the Romans. Real or imagined, these stories provide a sense of structure and order in times of chaos, confusion, and uncertainty. 

Conspiracy theories are exciting and entertaining. 

The idea that there's a hidden truth or nefarious secret plot being uncovered is like something out of a movie. It's frivolous fun, and it's no wonder why conspiracy theories make for such exciting books, movies, and TV shows.

Remember when the DaVinci Code had everyone thinking the Catholic Church was concealing the truth behind Christ's bloodline in 2006? We say "had," but let's be real, a lot of people still think it's true.

Conspiracy theories provide a sense of belonging.

Crazy or not, when two people believe in the same conspiracy theory, it can create a sense of camaraderie and shared purpose. This is especially true in the internet age, where people are constantly connecting with like-minded folks **and tin hats** around the world.  

Careful now...some conspiracy theories are dangerous. 

Not all conspiracy theories are fun and games. Some are capable of spreading misinformation and distrust worldwide in a matter of hours. The worst ones can even lead people to make stupid, irreversible choices or act on harmful thoughts.

That's why we try to take every conspiracy theory out there with a grain of salt. But that's easier said than done when it comes to the wild ones about Idaho's A-listers in the gallery below. See for yourself.
