      Re the greatest hoax of all time, surely it has to be the nonsense that surrounds Homeopathy.

      Not only is it a crude lie, it is a lie that endures.
      And the NHS gives them some of our money for this idiotic fallacy!

        Not forgetting Marlowe's near-contemporary, the hell-raising painter Caravaggio.

                I think the 'November Criminals' beats the Protocols.
                You're probably right, although those who made the most capital out of the "November Criminals" were likely to have been previously conditioned by such hoaxes as the Protocols and similar groundless myths.

                  In similar vein, Joseph Smith's Book of Mormon has to have been one of the most influential hoaxes in comparatively recent history.

                    True Sam. We’ve all been fooled by stuff in our lives at various times but we usually find out and admit it. But some things are so embedded in people’s minds that they just can’t see how ludicrous they are. I sometimes wonder if people actually still believe them or are they just too embarrassed to admit they’ve been hoodwinked? Wish-thinking plays a huge part in these things of course.

                      I don’t know if it can be classed as a hoax but it’s utterly staggering that there are still human beings on this planet that believe that the earth is flat!

                      This is surely an illness?

                        then again, Homeopathy leverages the placebo-effect.... So maybe not such a Hoax at all...

                              Greatest hoax: The Bible

                              I'm surprised to see that even if Scientology and Mormon stuff has been mentioned, nobody has said anything about THE GREATEST HOAX : The Bible. So I'll do it and it's still going on strong.

                              The most ridiculous thing with this hoax is that three main religions resulted from the Bible hoax each one fighting against the other under the name of God. Who's God is the real one: the Jewish God, the Muslim God or the Christian God?

                                It amazes me that people fall for that ****. From a second rate sci if writer no less. I lost what little respect for tome cruise and travolta to and the other actors that follow it.

                                What a fricken joke.
