Air France 447 Conspiracy Theories Have Begun

Air France flight 447 from Brazil disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean this morning with 228 people on board. It’s not sure exactly what happened yet, but it’s thought to be some kind of electrical problem or lightning.

As soon as I heard this story I knew the conspiracy theories would soon follow, and‘s forum did not disappoint:

“This is the area that has the large geo-magnetic hole. I wonder if that could have something to do with it.”

“Aircraft are struck daily, it is extremely rare for one to suffer catastrophic damage as a result. They may be getting an early start on planting a meme. Any geomagnetic or cosmic-ray events of note last night?”

“im guessing it was in the bermuda triangle correct?”

“Have you ever seen that movie or read the book. ‘The langoliers’

I think this is what happened. They hit a portal that opened up and now are in a complete other dimension or on a world where everything is 110% different.”

“There is something strange about this situation. I have never heard of planes disappearing unless they flew into another dimension such as has reportedly happened over the Bermuda triangle.Noone has ever proven it but there are those that believe that there is an Atlantean crystal of huge proportions hidden on the sea floor there that has the capacity to perturb the dimensions in the srea given the correct barometric and electrical conditions!”

“Now I’m thinking about the 50 beached whales in South Africa, could the magnetosphere have affected the instrumentation of the plane and confused the whale’s sense of direction?”

I predict a plausible explanation will come to light in the next weeks or months, but paranoid conspiracy theorists will ignore the evidence.

It’s a terrible tragedy, my thoughts are with the friends and families of the people on board.

    Extraterrestrials hijacked the passengers!!
    *No emergency message from the crew
    *Sudden electrical failure
    *Lost of contact for several hours
    *Missing “time line”
    *Only message is automatic

    I wasn’t aware that people could be hijacked

    The plane could not have come down in a more isolated area, smack dab in the middle of very deep ocean between Africa and South America. The ships sent to scour the waters for remains have not even arrived yet.

    It all seems very convenient……that location gives the secret World Government time to cover up what has obviously been an attack on this plane by extra terrestrials.

    Either that, or God is angry again, Katrina was punishment for gay marriage, this is clearly punishment for electing the anti-christ, Barack Obama, as President.

    I am clearly joking. I find it ridiculous that people are going on about this garbage when we should be doing two things:

    Feeling remorse and sadness for the victims and their families and trying to figure out logical and realistic explanations for the crash so it does not happen again!

    I’m not saying there is a conspiracy, but there are some definite inconsistencies. At first they had reported they found a piece of the plane fuselage, and a seat, plus that oil slick. Now they say they only the thing they found was a pallet. Come on. And what about the oil slick? So there are ships discharging huge amounts of oil into our oceans? If so, this is a serious problem.
