  • Canada is a real country and there is no evidence or not a lot of evidence which shows that it is not a real country.

    This is almost as asinine as people believing they are monkeys on a spinning ball.

    Agreed @Erfisflat, Whether this or the idea that we're monkeys (that came from dissolving acid) on a spinning ball is more asinine will remain a mystery.

  • @Erfisflat, just to be clear, do you believe that Canada doesn't exist as a country, it doesn't exist in general, etc?
    What is rationale for your disbelief? Certainly many people have visited Canada and it's easy to validate it's existance.

    Yes, Canada exists. Please reread my post. The original poster argued that Canada didn't exist as it's own country, that it was merely part of the US. It went a bit overboard from there, and people exaggerated the claim.

  • For those who believe there's no such thing as Canada, then answer these questions:

    Do you think the land of Canada doesn't exist, or do you think the name's just made up?
    If there's no land in 'Canada', then what's north of the United States?
    If it's not called Canada, then what is it? Does this really disprove its existence?
    What leads you to believe the area of Canada doesn't exist?

    I've heard my fair share of conspiracies, though this is the most intriguing.
  • @PowerPikachu21, To your point, I also wonder if Conspiracy theorists out there claim that Canada doesn’t exist then what did I actually visit when I went there a few times. A hologram?

  • This isn't a conspiracy theory, this is a joke. At least conspiracy theories have evidence.

  • @Erfisflat, you had me worried there. Glad you agree it was a joke about Canada being fake,

    Ya, if I'm going to back a conspiracy theory, there should be some pretty convincing, verifiable evidence.

  • I'm pretty sure the US government (or whoever is behind the myth of Canada) couldn't have been able to take all historical records which say Canada doesn't exist and change them without any notice.
