Crazy People

Since I was arguing with the crazy man on Salon (who has so many wacky ideas about things people are covering up I couldn't begin to list them all without starting a Wiki about them) I was reading the Bad Astronomy site to gather some of the debunking information. This worked especially well since much of crazy man's ideas are apparently also those of Hoagland and the Bad Astronomy site specifically refutes those.

Before this I'd never heard of Hoagland or his insane theories. I'd also never heard of Planet X or that guy who things comets gain mass as they approach the sun and then they become planets. I'd heard the UFO nuts and the Moon-Landing-Were-Faked nuts, but I was surprised by some of these other ones.

What other big conspiracy theories am I missing? I'm sure there are a TON, but I'm just asking for your favorites or some of the biggest ones. I'm especially asking about the science based ones as every historical event surely has one
