I also think the circumstances of the funeral arrangements were pretty suspicious. The variety of deaths Edward II was rumored to die don’t exactly convince me he died at Berkeley Castle.

Pants pooping

Most artwork is faux

“I don’t necessarily “believe” this, however I’ve at all times speculated that numerous priceless art work and historic paperwork are literally replicas or copies.

Firstly, warfare. Paintings and statues are low on the checklist of issues that warfare endangers and ruined, however regardless the mix of intense combating, strategic bombing, and basic chaos would trigger various cultural and scientific injury. Artwork looted or destroyed by invading troopers, archives misplaced to bombs, and so forth.

Numerous nations disguise their nationwide treasures away in occasions of disaster, however who’s to say that what got here again was the true deal?

Obviously a portray by a world-famous artist utilizing a really particular approach can be very onerous to faux, and I don’t suppose that each artwork scholar on the planet is paid off in some grand conspiracy. Rather, I simply suppose that both A. the nationwide treasures by no means left their vaults. or B. that some nationwide treasures really have been misplaced to historical past however in denial or delight they have been replicated.

I do suppose museums are principally professional, and reproduction or not the historical past surrounding any given artifact is one thing I don’t doubt, however I do suppose a number of issues are warning flags:

Things which might be so insanely beneficial it’d be idiotic to reveal them to the general public with something lower than army ranges of safety (i.e. the US Constitution or Declaration of Independence).

It can’t be carefully examined or touched.

The merchandise in query wouldn’t be onerous to duplicate (i.e. a chunk of pottery or {a photograph} or a chunk of paper is simpler to make than a portray by one of many best artists ever)

Again, I don’t precisely imagine this, however it’s one thing I’ve at all times thought of. The concept of maintaining a nationwide treasure out within the open with only a pane of bulletproof glass has at all times appeared silly to me, so both the US Constitution as displayed within the National Archives is faux or individuals are silly.” — JackMorin

Weapons testing

“The US army has examined organic weapons within the Korean warfare. Not as a large-scale deployment, however a small-scale subject take a look at that acquired blown out of proportion by communist propaganda.

The US Joint Chiefs of Staff issued orders to start out “large scale field tests … to determine the effectiveness of specific BW [bacteriological warfare] agents under operational conditions” in 1951. Moreover, the US has captured researchers and property from Japan after World War 2. They had the desire and capability to conduct such an operation in Korea.

Also, think about the truth that the Americans critically thought of using nuclear weapons in opposition to China throughout the Korean warfare. The use of chemical weapons after Korea (Vietnam warfare and Agent Orange) additionally recommended that the US is greater than keen to make use of WMDs in opposition to its adversaries.

As for China/North Korea supposedly fabricating proof in worldwide investigations, I imagine that the communists have been attempting to blow it out of proportion and safe the ethical excessive floor. Keep in thoughts that China purchased a considerable amount of medical provides from the USSR and despatched them to the frontlines although the Chinese forces have been operating out of meals and ammunition. If it was all a communist hoax, why would the communists, underneath horrible logistical stress, nonetheless insist on transporting disinfectants to the frontlines as an alternative of truly helpful gear?” (*17*)
