I believe this was an actual theory.  It was only proven after the demise of the Empire.

Some things never change...

Yeah, what happened to all the 1964 and before quarters and dimes?

I have many.  They are in a plastic 1 gallon freezer bag.  In my safe.  I'm sure many people have a lot more of these.

I ended up selling all mine when I was getting 4 bucks a piece for them. Hard times forced my hand. damn it. Chuckle

If I was to need cash, I would do the same thing. Heartflowers

That might be the oldest that turned out to be proven true...

When Cain killed Able and Satan told him "you can rule the world".
Cain's descendents built Babel (Ur) and the tower that would "reach unto the place of God".
God decided they were getting too uppity and scattered them to the four corners of the earth and "confused their language" .

Is that a conspiracy? If so, then wouldn't Satan comspiring with a third of the angels to overthrow God come first?

Naa, God created man and Satan was jealous because he was #3 so he (Satan) decided to throw a wrench in the works.
The war in heaven happens in the early days of man, that is where the Nephilem came from - "there were giants in those days, men of old, men of renown" ....
