For people who follow conspiracy theories, Linda Moulton Howe might be a familiar name. A graduate from Stanford University, Howe typically focuses on scientific, medicinal, and environmentally-based issues. Her films, such as A Strange Harvest, Poison in the Wind, and A Sun Kissed Poison, have earned her numerous awards including regional Emmys.
In February, Howe spoke at the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles.
A video from her speech recently went viral after it was posted at the beginning of this week.

“At a top robotics company in Japan this week, four robots being developed for military applications killed 29 humans in the lab.”
“And they did it by shooting what he called metal bullets. I didn’t know there was any other kind.”
Indy100 provided the transcript for the remainder of the speech:
“The scariest part is that lab workers deactivated two of the robots and took apart the third.”
“But the fourth robot began restoring itself, and somehow connected to an orbiting satellite to download information about how it could rebuild itself even more strongly than before.”
“This is serious s*** Linda, but you’re not going to hear about this in the news.”
“The robotics company has too much to lose, and the government wants AI robot soldiers.”
The Tweet has ignited the internet.
Many people feel as though her claims are simply another example of her “sensationalism”.
Not exactly what I would consider a credible source, next. pic.twitter.com/jG0gdRBvgj— AJ Brook (@DangDoods) December 19, 2018
This video has gone viral smh. Linda Moulton Howe, ufologist and a conspiracy theorist claims that 29 humans were killed by in a Japanese laboratory producing militarized autonomous robots.— HoaxEye (@hoaxeye) December 19, 2018
Of course there is zero evidence. Moulton Howe is not a reliable source. 1/2 https://t.co/SEbo2dy4Wi
Linda Moulton Howe's claims are to be taken with a grain of salt. All of her reports are anecdotes from people that may or may not exist. She's a big name in the ufo community, but nowhere else. I'm not too terribly concerned.— Izzy Fawkes Ⓥ (@Izzys_On_One) December 19, 2018
Linda Moulton Howe (the lady in the video) is a alien conspiracy theorist. A lot of the things she talks about are crazy and obviously insane. There have been no credible sources able to say this actually happened.— Skylar (@6kylar) December 19, 2018
Her claim is completely unverified and most likely nothing more than fear mongering. She is a popular conspiracy theorist with a main focus on UFOs. Here is a fact check https://t.co/bQFurvEo5F— Chris Trent (@Chrisinatent) December 19, 2018
But others feel as though Howe might be on to something.
People who created their Movies be trying to warn us you never know the unexpected may happen in real life pic.twitter.com/4x85dDzHUO— Angelbaby💋 (@angelbabyll) December 19, 2018

They showed us what would happen in IRobot and all the other robot movies 🤦🏽♀️ art depicts reality. Someone had to think of them before they were on film. All those apocalypse movies are probably true too.— Brittany Daniel- YouTuber (@BrittanyTheHost) December 20, 2018
It’s happening... https://t.co/3SruFbhlWQ— Martina Markota (@MartinaMarkota) December 19, 2018
Perhaps all of the films were a warning and not just fiction?
