Forget the future! We still have a lot to learn about the history of humanity. For all that we know, many historical events have a lot of controversies surrounding them. Even today, such events are being debated on a global level. Yet, the people are still unsure about the truth behind them; the reason being that the official outcomes of such incidents are laden with conspiracy theories.
Were those conspiracies true? If yes, why did the government issue contrasting statements?. None knows the answers to these questions. We can only assume the reasons behind them.
“Dude, you need to stop smoking weird shit!”, might be your immediate thought.
Well, there is a reason why I began speaking about conspiracies of the past. The legendary video game series, Assassin’s Creed, has a habit of roping in historical events to its story line. Each installment of the series showed historical connections of the highest order. We’ve all seen and played through those events. But, not many of us know that those connections relate to some of the biggest conspiracies.
Don’t worry! This history lesson isn’t going to be boring like school. So, grab your popcorn and get ready!
The “Philly” Experiment Of 1943 Did Happen
The Conspiracy: In October 28 1943, the U.S government conducted an experiment on the naval ship USS Eldridge, in Philadelphia. Their objective was to turn the ship invisible and to do a time travel to the past. That experiment went horribly wrong and resulted with the crew on board embedded to the ship’s metal structure. Besides, there were other claims that before these consequences happened, the ship did disappear from Philadelphia and reappear in Norfolk, Virginia.
Official statement: Such experiments were never conducted.
Assassin’s Creed: The game says the experiment did happen under the order of the Templars. But, the ship didn’t travel back in time. Instead, it traveled forward in time and stayed there for a solid 18 minutes; thanks to a Piece of Eden. However, a mail from Abstergo industries shows that the company decided not to carry out the experiment any further, owing to avert time paradoxes.
Houdini’s Disappearance Act Became Real
Official statement: Going by the records, Houdini’s death was straightforward. He succumbed to inflammation of the abdominal lining and a ruptured appendix in October 1926.
The Conspiracy: Houdini was murdered! The causes of death were too eccentric to think the death happened otherwise. One of the good things about the people of the past is that, they were too skeptical about such proceedings. They weren’t ready to jump to conclusions as we do now. The modern day people readily accept things telecasted by the media.
Assassin’s Creed: Houdini carried a piece of Eden. It allowed him to do all amazing magic tricks, which people thought he did on his own. However, the Templars murdered him to get a hold of the piece of Eden, and had many resources to cover up the incident.
The Curious Case Of JFK
Official Statement: JFK was killed by a lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22, 1963.
The Conspiracy: Many believe otherwise. They didn’t incline to the narrow thought process of a single man’s revenge on Kennedy. Considering the political situation of the world in that period of time, they had their doubts laid upon various entities like a mafia group, or the soviets or some black sheep under his presidency.
Assassin’s Creed: The game suggested a rather crazier theory. It seems Kenny had something really important that the Templars wanted. An extraction team was sent to kill him and retrieve the prize. The extraction group included Oswald himself, a videographer Abraham Zapruder, and Kennedy’s own driver. They killed him, and after the assassination, a piece of Eden was used to project a distraction.
The Tunguska Event Was Orchestrated
Official Statements: Back in 1908, a mysterious object exploded right in the middle of Russia. The explosion is said to have floored about 800 miles of forest. It was supposedly caused by a meteor and the entire event was called the Tunguska Event.
The Conspiracy: A sudden explosion in the middle of nowhere? A meteor you say? Well, we didn’t hear any news of a meteor onset nor did we find any evidence of it. These were the thoughts of many theorists. Some of the theories were pointed out at ‘aliens’, ‘a secret bomb testing’ and even a ‘black hole effect’. As if those weren’t the worst theories, a few people claimed it was the work of Nikola Tesla.
Assassin’s Creed: The game backs up the conspiracy that Nikola Tesla did it! Well, he should have probably been pissed off about that thief, Thomas Edison. Actually, it seems the Templars got hold of yet another piece of Eden back in 1908. They took it to a research facility near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River. Assassins received this information and approached Tesla to destroy the facility. Responding to their call for help, Tesla used his wireless power transmitting tower to destroy the facility.
Hitler’s Death Wasn’t A Suicide
Official Statement: Hitler committed a suicide in his military bunker.
The Conspiracy: The people didn’t completely believe the statement and were thoroughly skeptical. Knowing Hitler, he wasn’t the kind of man who would commit a suicide. Hence, this thought was followed by many conspiracies. The most popular claim is that the bodies found in the bunker were doubles and that he and Eva Braun fled for Argentina.
Assassin’s Creed: Hitler did try to escape under the noses of the allied forces. But, he didn’t get too far. The assassin’s tracked him down and killed him while he was on his way out. Schade!
Human Evolution Happened Because Of Aliens
Official Statement: Humans evolved from Apes.
The Conspiracy: Some theories state that aliens came to earth and altered the genome of the homo sapiens. This led way to the belief that the human intelligence was a result of one of those alterations made by the aliens. It even suggests that who we call today as gods, were once aliens who visited this planet.
Assassin’s Creed: Ever wondered how some of the ancient structures were so finely built within a less span of time, with absolutely no advanced technology? Well, as per the game, aliens were the first beings on this planet. They were a telepathic humanoid species known as the First Civilization. But, those aliens needed a bigger workforce to support their society. Hence, they modified the genome of the unsuspecting apes which led to the birth of mankind. The aliens used their technology and the human resources to build those amazing ancient structures. Later, mankind grew tired of being slaves and rebelled against those aliens, chasing them away in the process. The bad part of this is, the advanced technology the aliens brought, was also gone along with them.
That being said, doesn’t this analysis suggest us something? The answer is this.
Considering that the writers of Assassin’s Creed did enough research to back up their claims about history, whatever they have written might indeed be true. Replacing the pieces of Eden with some real-time powerful artifact and replacing the Templars with the so called ‘Illuminati’, all their conclusions on the events look to make some sense. If they are indeed true, we might have been looking at history the wrong way all this time.
But on the flip side, what the writers penned might also be conspiracy theories of their own.
You be the judge!
I really need to stop smoking weird shit! *Grabs a beer, instead* 😛
