Some people love a new conspiracy theory. From those who believe the earth is flat to others who are denying the holocaust, many inquisitive members of the public enjoy nothing more than to debate universal truths.
Such is the case with the recent revelation that Steve Jobs is apparently living it up in Egypt. Eight years after his reported death by pancreatic cancer, the rumor mill has begun working overtime.
Is it possible that when Steve Jobs exclaimed “Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow…” in his final moments on earth, he was perhaps actually picturing himself in swimmers, by a crystal clear pool, and in close proximity to the Great Pyramids of Giza? Given Jobs’ prior home being located in sunny and affluent Palo Alto, it is difficult to comprehend how that’s possible, but we’ve got the details on why some people are convinced that’s the case.
An Egyptian Doppelganger?
Recently a photograph surfaced online which has caused quite the stir. It shows the famed creator of Apple walking barefoot (which Jobs frequently was) somewhere in Egypt. The photo appeared despite Jobs having been pronounced dead on October 5th, 2011. That’s just odd.
What do conspiracy theorists think that Jobs is doing in Egypt? According to sources, he is said to be ensuring the smooth running of his global operation from the land of the Pharos, with Tim Cook being the public face of Apple. Sure. If Jobs got sick of the limelight, maybe an anonymous lifestyle in North East Africa would have started to look appealing. However, it seems doubtful since that would mean leaving his four children father-less and residing across the water, with little physical contact with their dad.
Fuel For The Fire
The recent admission by Apple, that they do in fact make their smartphones degenerate over time like many suspected, adds some fuel to any conspiracy theories about the company. Conspiracy theorists wonder how, if the company can lie about the integrity of its most famous product, customers can be sure about anything that Apple tells them. They have a good point.. or do they?
The latest in a long line of conspiracy theories
Steve Jobs, alive in the desert land of Egypt? Sure, online fans were absolutely complicit in fuelling this rumor. Once the photograph was released it was followed by a highly active Reddit thread in which many hypothesized the truth of the situation. In reality, while the resemblance is uncanny, the man in the picture also looks decidedly Egyptian in profile and could be an ordinary citizen rather than the deceased tech genius.
The “Steve Jobs is alive and well” conspiracy theory isn’t the only one of its kind. It is the latest in a long list of theories about deceased celebrities who are said to remain among the living. As with the Steve Jobs theory, there’s a supposed list of incredible sightings to prove what theorists believe.
What’s an example? Elvis Presley was reportedly been witnessed purchasing a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires from Memphis International Airport, under the pseudonym of Jon Burrows on the afternoon of his supposed death? There is also a photo of a person who is believed to be Elvis which was taken at Graceland on the singer’s 82nd birthday.
There’s a second example that highlights this trend. The death of Osama Bin Laden has fallen under similar scrutiny that was fuelled by the lack of publicly disclosed DNA evidence and photographs. It didn’t help that there was also a 25-minute blackout period during the film of the raid in which the leader was killed. These details led to rampant concern that Bin Laden never died as the government said, but was, in fact, alive and well.
