Biggest Conspiracy Theories of all Times

There are so many conspiracy theories out there, and obviously, many of them are ridiculous. However, it seems equally ridiculous to presume that all conspiracy theories are false. Therefore, I’m sure almost everyone here would agree that at least some conspiracy theories are true. So what I’m wondering is, what are some of the biggest ones?
Here I have compiled some of the biggest conspiracy theories of all times. I may have missed some so feel free to comment and correct me.
Apollo Moon Landing
The Apollo 11 Moon landing in 1969 is said to be an elaborate hoax by the US accordingto  some space conspiracy theorists. NASA footage of Moon’s surface is bogus according to some theorists, who claim glaring anomalies such as shadows going in different directions and the US flag blowing in the wind show it was faked.
9/11 Pentagon Conspiracy Theory
There’s a theory that no plane actually hit the Pentagon on September 11 and that the explosion was actually caused by a missile fired from inside it by the Americans.
The Bermuda Triangle
A number of aircraft and ships are alleged to have gone missing in mysterious circumstances in the Bermuda Triangle. Strange goings on and supernatural activity has been reported since the 1950s.
Paul Is Dead
There is an urban legend alleging that Paul McCartney of The Beatles died in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike and sound-alike. He was supposedly replaced by William Campbell- the winner of a look-alike contest.
Princess Diana’s Death

Some believe that the death of Prince Charles’ ex-wife in a Paris car crash 12 years ago was a murder plot by the Royal family to prevent her from marrying again
The Roswell cover up

Many believe that the US military covered up the crash of an alien spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico. It has been claimed that various parts of an alien spacecraft and even bodies of extra-terrestrials were retrieved from the scene.
The Illuminati Run the World

The illuminate conspiracy theory holds that the world’s corporate and political leaders are all members of an ancient cabal: Illuminati, Rosicrucian’s, or Freemason.
The Assassination of John F. Kennedy
The JFK assassination is perhaps the most discussed and most widely-accepted conspiracy theory. 
Global Warming is a Fraud

William Gray made a list of 15 reasons for the global warming hysteria. The list includes the need to come up with an enemy after the end of the Cold War. According to him, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stopped giving him research grants, and so did NASA.
Pearl Harbor Was Allowed to Happen

This theory states that President Roosevelt provoked the attack to make Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.
