1. Area 51

For years, the government wouldn't even admit that Area 51 existed. As this official highway sign shows, they did a terrible job of keeping that secret. Just off of Nevada State Route 375, the military compound is famed for supposedly being the place where the U.S. government reverse-engineered a captured extraterrestrial spacecraft.

2. The Philadelphia Experiment

In 1943, the Navy allegedly conducted strange experiments on the USS Eldridge. First, in July of '43, they used electrical field manipulation to make the ship invisible. Later, in October, they teleported the ship from the Philadelphia to Virginia. The October event includes stories of mangled sailors stuck in the metal of the teleported ship.

5. The Flat Earth Society

According to the Flat Earth Society, those that say they have been to space and witnessed a round world are faking space travel for financial gain. Thus, the images of a round Earth are likely faked as well. The society has plenty of maps to show how they feel the Earth is actually laid out.

6. Chemtrails

Those emissions from jets are harmless, right? Some don't think so. Some believe that the contrails (or chemtrails) that emit from airplanes may be a way for the government to drop chemicals that "weed out the old and the sick."

9. The Bilderberg Meetings

According to their website, the Bilderberg Meetings simply allow world leaders to "foster dialogue." However, the meetings' secretive nature has led some to believe that Bilderberg is the semi-public face of the Illuminati. For instance, the photographer of the above picture notes that the venue looks like the pyramid of power, upside-down.

10. The Lizard People

Forget the Illuminati, our real overlords are scalier. British writer David Icke claims that the British royal family is actually a bunch of reptilian humanoid shape-shifters. These reptilians count George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Bob Hope as part of their shape-shifting brotherhood. The lizard people also received a write-in vote in Minnesota's 2008 senatorial election.

Things aren't always what they seem. Such is the case onboard Ascension. A 3-night event. Premieres Monday, December 15 at 9/8c. Only on Syfy.
