Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan crashed and died. Evidently Earhart has been quite enjoying her new role as a Hollow Earth greeter, which is exactly the same as a Wal-Mart greeter only without Apparently people saw it, went "That sounds plausible," and a conspiracy theory was born.

Conspiracy theorists imagine that the Easter Island heads were built by aliens using lasers, that there's a skyscraper built by extraterrestrials at the bottom of the Pacific, and the froglike statues of Marquesa Island depict an ancient alien race. And, although it is not backed by any evidence, some conspiracy theorists say that Amelia Earhart , while flying over the Pacific, made contact with otherworldly life. The baseless claim says aliens took Amelia Earhart to another planet, cryogenically froze her , then later on defrosted her for "biological exams," and then that somehow led to her

Today, July 24, marks the birth date of Amelia Earhart, the American aviation pioneer who broke records for women in flight and helped form the female pilot group the Ninety-Nines.

Earhart was born in Kansas in 1897 and served as a nurse's aid in World War 1. After her time watching pilots, she went on to take flying lessons in 1921 and earned her license that year, according to History.com.

And then she began breaking records.

Earhart became the first woman to fly solo above 14,000 feet; the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic; the first woman to fly solo, non-stop, across the U.S., and much more.

Rhode Island teacher goes public with Critical Race Theory curriculum: ‘I’m refusing to propagate lies’

  Rhode Island teacher goes public with Critical Race Theory curriculum: ‘I’m refusing to propagate lies’ A Rhode Island middle school teacher says critical race theory is finding its way into public school classrooms and creating racial hostility and mistrust among her students. Ramona Bessinger has been a public-school teacher for more than 20 years. For the past seven years, she’s been a middle school teacher in Providence. She currently teaches at Esek Hopkins Middle School. Over the years, Bessinger says her lessons have been diverse, running the gamut from poems by Maya Angelou to speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr. She’s also taught units on slavery and the Harlem Renaissance, she said.

One of the most popular conspiracy theories surrounding the disappearance of Earhart is that she was captured by the Japanese and taken hostage. Relations between the US and Japan had been fractured since Japan attacked China in 1931. However, this theory was discredited, as during One man who has a theory about the death of Amelia Earhart is William Sablan, whose uncle worked at a prison on the island of Saipan in 1937. He alleged that both Earhart and Noonan were held captive at the prison before their execution. Sablan recalled that he had dreams of becoming a pilot, and when

Intrigued by Earhart — and her physical resemblance to Lindbergh — he invited her to be a passenger on a transatlantic flight. In June 1928, she became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic and then to fly back. (The duration of the first flight — 20 Hours, 40 Min — would become the title of her book on But while the formal search-and-rescue mission may have ended, the citizen search was just beginning. Earhart ’s death has given birth to many conspiracy theories about her disappearance that continue to capture the public imagination to this day. Earhart “vanished into legend,” as TIME once put it

On June 1 1937, Earhart set off on a mission to become the first person ever to fly around the world. She set off on her journey from Oakland, California, with navigator Fred Noonan.

By June 29, the two had reached Lae, in New Guinea. Their next stop was due to be Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean, but after taking off from Lae on July 2, the two disappeared.

A massive search for the pair was conducted, but they were never found. Earhart was declared dead on January 5, 1939, according to Britannica.

The Theories

Since Earhart's disappearance a number of theories have been put forward to explain what could have happened. Almost inevitably, conspiracy theories have emerged including that Earhart was captured by the Japanese and either died or was given a new identity and returned to the U.S.

Police open cold case into hitchhiker Joanne Butterfield who vanished 23 years ago

  Police open cold case into hitchhiker Joanne Butterfield who vanished 23 years ago Joanne Butterfield disappeared while hitchhiking in Far North Queensland and police have reopened her missing persons case after a number of new tip-offs from the public.Joanne Butterfield was 37 and living in the small town of Mossman, north of Cairns, when she went missing in June, 1998.

Theory #1: Earhart ran out of fuel, crashed and perished in the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the most generally accepted versions of the famous aviator’s disappearance . Many experts believe Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan got slightly off course en route to a refueling stop at Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean. In 2017, investigators announced the discovery of a photo, buried in the National Archives for nearly 80 years, that may depict Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan days after their disappearance .

Reader's Digest. Conspiracy Theories About Amelia Earhart 's Disappearance . Read full article. Oops! In some versions of this theory , President Roosevelt disavowed all knowledge of Earhart and Noonan and let the Japanese execute them. In other versions, Earhart remained a prisoner in Japan throughout World War II, after which she returned to the U.S. and lived the rest of her life in witness protection.

And some seem outright strange.

In 2015, the New Dimensions blog, whilst publicizing the Hollow Earth Magazine, posited that Earhart was saved by beings called Agarthans who live in a civilization inside the Earth.

The blog states the Agarthans used teleportation technology to help the aviator before she hit the ocean which is why her plane was never found—though it's unclear if this is a genuinely held belief.

Newsweek has contacted the blog for comment.

For Richard Gillespie, executive director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), argues theories such as this do not hold water.

He told Newsweek: "I have come to believe the public and the media are so fascinated with Earhart, and the internet is so hungry for content, that anyone who has a theory, no matter how crazy, can get it out there."

TIGHAR is a non-profit foundation based in Pennsylvania that aims to promote responsible aviation archaeology and preservation.

Mollie Tibbetts murder: Police find no link between Iowa student and 11-year-old's disappearance

  Mollie Tibbetts murder: Police find no link between Iowa student and 11-year-old's disappearance Iowa investigators see no link between the recent disappearance of 11-year-old Xavior Harrelson and the 2018 death of Mollie Tibbetts, for which Cristhian Bahena Rivera was convicted of murder in May, according to local media reports. Harrelson disappeared from a trailer park in Montezuma on May 27, one day before Bahena Rivera was found guilty by a jury.

Earhart radioed that she was headed north, the message was intercepted, and the Japanese took her hostage, he claims. In recent years, high school science teacher and Earhart enthusiast Dick Spink has picked up Reineck’s torch, collecting oral histories from the Marshall Islands he says are proof that He contends that the islanders’ stories will be borne out by scientific proof.

Results showed that belief in conspiracy theories was associated with the endorsement of less plausible explanations for the disappearance of Earhart and Noonan. In addition, belief in less plausible explanations was also significantly associated with lower self-assessed intelligence, greater political cynicism, lower self-esteem, and higher Agreeableness scores. a number of best-selling books about her flying experiences, Earhart attempted. The authors wish to thank Dunja Bauer and Susann Beeg for their assistance with data.

Nikumaroro Landing

The group works with the mainstream belief that Earhart and Noonan ended up on an uninhabited patch of land formerly known as Gardner Island and now called Nikumaroro, part of the Phoenix Islands of Kiribati, and has launched twelve expeditions to the South Pacific. One mission set off as recently as 2017.

Gillespie told Newsweek the U.S. government's official explanation was that Earhart and Noonan ran out of fuel, crashed, and sank. He added: "It is the intuitive answer to the riddle, but there is no evidence to support it.

"Earhart never said she was going down; the massive 1937 Navy and Coast Guard search found no floating debris or oil slick; and six multi-million dollar hi-tech searches of the ocean bottom around Howland over the past 22 years have found nothing."

According to Gillespie, the Nikumaroro island landing theory is instead "more than likely" based on data and artifacts the group has collected.

"She sent radio distress calls, widely received and accepted as genuine at the time, for at least five nights," he said, but added that by the time search planes arrived the plane had been washed into the ocean by tides and surf.

US Virgin Islands missing Sarm Heslop: Parents ‘want, need and demand’ answers 5 months after disappearance

  US Virgin Islands missing Sarm Heslop: Parents ‘want, need and demand’ answers 5 months after disappearance The parents of a United Kingdom woman who vanished from the U.S. Virgin Islands in March demanded answers Friday in a case that has gone virtually nowhere and called on her boyfriend to allow police to perform a forensic search on his yacht, where she was living. "There are no words for our suffering," Brenda Street and Peter Heslop said in a joint statement Friday. "We want, need and demand answers" Their daughter Sarm Heslop, 41, was last seen leaving the 420 to Center bar on St. John at around 10 p.m. on March 7 with her boyfriend, Ryan Bane, 44.

He also pointed to bones found on the island which were recorded but subsequently lost. In 2018 Richard Jantz, professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, studied the remains data and found indications they were Earhart's.

In any case, while there may still be contrasting theories on Earhart's disappearance, her legacy as a female aviation pioneer is steadfast today.
