9 most surprising conspiracy theories about AntarcticaVika
The unexplored world is getting smaller as air travel and media allow us to visit every corner of the planet. Antarctica, however, is one part of our Earth that hardly anyone will be able to visit or see. For most of us, this is the only place that is a real mystery. Of course, we all know that it is full of ice and a difficult place for people to live, but other than that, no one knows much about it. This sense of mystery naturally led to many conspiracy theories over time.
1. The Nazis live there in secret hiding places.
The German Nazi Party, led by Adolf Hitler, is the source of many, many conspiracy theories. However, they are also associated with Antarctica. It is believed that the Nazis sent an extensive expedition to this continent in 1938 to see what was there. Hitler and many high-ranking Nazis were deeply involved in the occult and considered Antarctica a special place. The theory is that this expedition discovered several large underground caves, which were then turned into cities for high-ranking Nazis.
2. The pyramids were built by ancient societies.
One of the latest theories to surface on the Internet concerns three pyramidal structures found in Antarctica. In 2016, three pyramids were discovered, and when measured, they reached about 1219 meters each. This is almost 10 times higher than the great pyramids of Giza in Egypt. This naturally caused a commotion as no ancient civilization with the knowledge to build such great pyramids was ever recorded as living in the area. Conspiracy theorists argue that the pyramids were supposed to have been built by an ancient society about which our current government is hiding details.
3. Did the aliens build rectangular icebergs?
The next theory on the list when it comes to Antarctica revolves around perfectly shaped rectangular icebergs that people spotted there. These icebergs are so huge they can be seen from space, but their ideal shape is suspicious. The main problem is that ideal forms do not arise by themselves in nature. Their sheer size has also made conspiracy theorists wonder if they were built by aliens or even one of the largest governments in the world. At this point, no one can say for sure, and the debate will rage on.
4. Atlantis is under Antarctica.
One of the most famous mysteries in history is associated with the lost city of Atlantis. Many believe that Atlantis can be found in Antarctica. This is a 1950s theory that revolved around the theory that Antarctica was not covered in ice many years ago. Interestingly, it is also claimed that the inhabitants of Atlantis migrated to create the Inca and Mayan civilization when it sank.
5. UFO crashed in Antarctica.
Many conspiracy theories on this continent involve aliens and UFOs. One of the most widely known has been a theory recently put forward by a group of alien hunters. While looking at Google Earth, they noticed a suspicious path going down from the top of the mountain. They argue that this is similar to the path of a ship that hit the top of a mountain and then crashed and landed on the ice of Antarctica. Since no human flying objects fly over this continent, they say the only rational explanation is that it was an alien ship that crashed.
6. Does Google have any secrets?
Google Earth and Google Maps is a great resource for many people. It has also been the source of some theories around Antarctica, such as this one. In 2018, one well-known You Tuber stated that when he turned on the weather feature in Google Earth, a red cross appeared on the screen as he looked at a specific location in Antarctica. His theory is that Google, as a company, has top-tier secrets that we shouldn't know about, but one employee is trying to secretly disclose information. It is unknown what was found at the intersection, but many think it could be a secret base, hidden technology, or alien life.
7. Antarctica is not real.
There is a theory around this ice-laden continent that it does not exist at all. To understand this, you must believe that the Earth is really flat, and therefore the South Pole simply surrounds the Earth with the north at its center. The flat earthlings say that Antarctica is a huge wall 60 meters high that surrounds the Earth to keep us from falling off the edge. Since much of Antarctica is a closed area to the public, it may have kept this secret from the public for years. Interestingly, the Flat Earthlings say that Captain Cook is one of the few who has ever seen the real Antarctica on his travels.
8. Secret UFO bases are located here.
As noted above, aliens and UFOs are at the heart of many conspiracy theories here. One of the most popular is that Antarctica has several secret UFO bases where alien technology has been discovered. The basis of this theory is two entrance craters found on the surface of Antarctica, which seem to go deep underground. Many conspiracy theorists believe these tunnels ultimately lead to secret UFO bases, where governments around the world develop and test alien technology.
9. Nazi UFO also hid there.
We couldn't leave this list without introducing yet another Nazi conspiracy theory. It also includes secret UFOs that conspiracy theorists believe they have hidden there. This theory explains that the Nazis operated from this secret base throughout World War II, and the Allies embarked on many unsuccessful missions to destroy it. This never happened during the war but was achieved years later, in 1958, when the Allies dropped an atomic bomb on her. This theory is usually rejected by scholars and historians but remains popular in many conspiracy theories.
