Quote# 1271

Man never landed on the moon?
In yesterdays newspaper there was a big article about how the Moon landing was staged and has never happened. It said how at this stage it is impossible to get through the layer of whatever above 1700 ks. So the whole thing was a hoax. Scary hey? What else is a lie too? In 1969 when it was supposed to happen - we didn't have computers etc like today - so I guess it was easier to fool people.

Now that is ironic. This extreme gullibility is masquerading as an almost disesteeming skepticism.

I can't link to that thread, so I can't call Poe's law. If not..

They've got you believing you are connected to a global network via a keyboard. Scary, eh, coppertop?

Shouldn't this be in CTSTDT?

Is there a legitimate newspaper that would actually print this? If nothing else it points out the remarkable gullibility of fundies in general -- most people who believe something like this have to be very specifically half-educated in order for stuff like this to be "true", but this person just read it somewhere.

Apollo hoax dweebs are on the same low rung as fundies. I can't get enough of that video clip of Buzz Aldrin decking shithead Bart Sibrel. Shoulda hit him harder Buzz, shoulda hit him harder, then stepped on his face while he's down.

I adore the slo-mo instant replay on that clip. Thanks!

If it was easier to fool people in 1969, just imagine how easy it was in the first century AD!

All you had to do was claim that 500 people saw a man who rose from the dead and they'd believe you. In fact...

What were you reading the Onion?

Thanks Raewyn!

This shit again?

It would be harder and more expensive to fake the moon landing than to actually land on the moon!

Furthermore, there is no such impenetrable layer of "whatever" at "1700 ks", wherever that is. We have the fossi satellites, we win.

Indeed, AgentCDE. All you need is a sufficiently large rocket and an FAA variance.

The moon landing was faked in a soundstage on Mars.

Yeah, footage of humans working in low-gravity, total-vacuum conditions was just so much easier to make before the invention of photoshop or 3D renderers!

If you're not convinced, watch any episode of the original Star Trek alongside any episode of any modern sci-fi program at all (later Trek series would be favourite). Still think realistic space footage was easier to fake in the 60s?
