Conspiracy theories reach the surface after every turn taking event that takes place on both personal and social levels. As people perceive, analyze and react to the world differently, such conspiracy theories are a rather natural reaction. In the Modern World and with the rise of technology, conspiracy theories have marked their power and development as well, sparking a series of criticism on one side and support on the other. Such conspiracy theories came to suggest that they foreshadow an event before they take place. Events like the falling of the Twin Towers in New York sparked an outrageous amount of theories that remain in the field of criticism till this day. This paper will shed light on the conspiracy theories that were made in association to this turn taking event, where such theories depended on the media, literary narratives and overall technology as a source to mark the justification of such theories.
