Conspiracy Theory Club Takes Off, or Did It?


Seniors Anna Clair Day and Peyton Perry hold up a textbook to conserve gravity at a meeting of Central’s Conspiracy Theory Society.

Did America really land on the moon? Who is really behind John F. Kennedy’s assassination? What is our government hiding from us? These questions are being asked by one of the newest clubs on campus, the Conspiracy Theory Society (CTS).

“We are not only focused on creating conspiracy theories, but also analysis and education about conspiracy theories,” President Anna Claire Day said.

This new club is here to educate students about conspiracy theories. Some of the popular theories within the club include the ideas about two shooters in the JFK assassination, the attacks on the Twin Towers  being an inside job, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) withholding the cure for cancer.

Though they discuss some popular conspiracy theories, club members have also created their own. Junior Jonah Houston theorised that the human race is misreading gravity as a resource, and that one day we are going to run out.

“I think that gravity is a non-renewable resource that we have been abusing for thousands of years, and one day we are going to run out of it,” Jonah said.

Houston believes that the nickel and iron will form a new compound if over used and earth will no longer have a gravitational pull.

Though some members of this club are just part of the CTS for fun, some members are working to uphold their family’s history of believing in certain conspiracy theories. One member even has a relative who was a leader in one society that has evidence that the Earth is flat and documents to prove it.

While some of the theories discussed in the CTS may seem outrageous, other theories seem very believable. Whether you’re an avid conspiracy theorist or just an open-minded person, the CTS may be the club for you.
