Quote# 80970

On top of the dynamical problem of the Moon's orbit, NASA's claim to have had actually "landed" on the Moon six times is mere madness. Avionics are calibrated to the Earth. The Moon has no aviation beacons, no radar systems, no ground control etc., thus the Astronots had to literally fly by the seat of their pants (well, actually standing up while piloting the three-foil-thick Mr. "LEM"). And flying by the seat of your pants a quarter of a million miles from terra firma in the extreme vacuum of space filled with mega radiation attempting to "land" on a massive object orbiting at ~65,000 mph inside a non-tested vehicle, is nothing but suicidal lunacy.

The Holy Bible, God's Word, emphatically denies a lunar landing because the Scriptures proclaim a stationary Earth.

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring nothing the understanding of the prudent. I Corinthians 1:19

The Universe is much smaller than claimed by "science", yet still incredibly massive. The fact remains that scopes do not give distances. No doubt the Sun is much smaller and closer than the alleged 93 'million' miles. The Sun's radiation is immense and we are protected from this radiation by the magnetic field called the Van Allen belts. Most Moon "hoaxters" claim that the belts themselves are radioactive, which is true as they are deflecting the Sun's radiation. The real danger however lies beyond the belts where there is NO protection from the Sun's intense heat in the extreme vacuum of space. These belts extend roughly 15,000 miles beyond the Earth's crust and perhaps a few thousand miles more. Regardless, there is still well over 200,000 miles that the Apollo spacemen had to travel and spend several days "exploring" the lunar surface within this mega radiation. Not to mention all oxygen had to be packed... They did remember to pack a few 'beef sandwiches' and some 'butterscotch pudding'...

Ha ha ha! Good one!

P.S. Sometimes I think the Poes are getting better at this than the fundies.

He's funny.
Not to mention a complete, ignorant pillock.

Er...Vacuum essentially IS a ward against heat. Heat is just a gauge of how rapidly molecules are vibrating. Not much heat where there are so few molecules, like the void of space...

@Skyknight: Mercury has no atmosphere, and yet it's extremely hot. Heat is the vibration of molecules, yes, but it's transferred in the form of radiation, which requires no medium. Notably, humans are made of molecules, which can vibrate quite fast if excited by sufficient radiation.
Not to say that I in any way agree with this Masters idiot. He apparently neglected to read up on the radiation shielding that is downright essential for any spacecraft.

I really wish that people would learn to use 'apostrophes' and "quotation marks."

Hooray for tropes!

"Not fundie, just stupid."

Seriously? Not only is it a scientific failure, it's also explicitly religious in nature. That's pretty fucking fundie.

"The Holy Bible, God's Word, emphatically denies a lunar landing because the Scriptures proclaim a stationary Earth."

It's almost as if the bible is dead wrong about pretty much everything. Nah, couldn't be that. Must be Satan, or the Jews, or something.

Astronots = they didn't go.

heh heh

Moon landings are lunacy.

hyuck hyuck

What does a scientist use to hold his pants up?

A Van Allen belt.

ahyuck *snort*

I'm here all week, folks. Tell your friends.

>> NASA claims to have had actually "landed" on the Moon six times. <<

So who was the first guy to land on the moon?
Yes.

Well, what's the name of the second guy?
Yes.

Are you gonna tell me the name of the third guy to land on the moon?
I don't know.

Heyyyyyyyy, Abbott!

Your first paragraph fails relativity. Your subsequent paragraphs fail the rest. Well done. Get your lollipop at the door.

Doubting Thomas

I admit it's refreshing to see a moon hoaxer using religion to deny the existence of space travel.

If you're really going to use the bible as proof, though, you should explain that there's no way the astronauts could have gotten through the firmament at the top of the sky, and they would likely have bumped into all the tiny stars up there.

This guy is an old school fundie. He believes everything in the Bible is true and if your claim cannot be reconciled with what the Bible says about it, it is false. Therefore, since the Bible says the earth is fixed those who claim to have landed on the moon are liars. Case closed as far as he's concerned.
His knowledge of science is abysmal, as a simple read through of his webpage will reveal.

So, there is not need for me to become an Astronotess? :-( Dang! I so wanted to meet LEM on Planet 51! :-(

Do these idiots not remember the Soviet Union?
Soviet observers were watching specificly for an attempt to pull a fast one.
If the Americans had faked the moon landings, the Soviets would have exposed them in no time.
The Chinese were also watching... as were the VIETNAMESE... (those folks America was waging a war against).
Imagine the triumphant crowing in Hanoi if the Americans had faked a moon landing....

>>No doubt the Sun is much smaller and closer than the alleged 93 'million' miles<<

I have bounced radar beams off of the solar corona.

I have also bounced a laser off of the mirrors that the Apollo crews left behind on the Moon.

Your Argument Is Invalid.

The Holy Bible, God's Word, emphatically denies a lunar landing because the Scriptures proclaim a stationary Earth.

It also emphatically states that demons cause disease, that goats can shag in front of rods to change the patterns on their offspring, and that the Earth stands on pillars. So pardon me if I don't swallow wholesale what the book proclaims.

For it is written

I know this is an odd thing to bother someone but it really is a pet-peeve of mine when people use "it is written" or "it is said" as if quoting some other person automatically makes whatever is quoted valid. It is written in The Night Before Christmas that Santa exists but that doesn't mean I'm hanging my stockings by the chimney with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon will be there.

I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring nothing the understanding of the prudent. I Corinthians 1:19

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.
-Bertrand Russell


Besides, the Bible ALWAYS pulls that pseudo-enlightened sophistic bullshit of simply flipping two opposites i.e. the weak shall be made strong and the strong shall be made weak, the wise will be fools and those who are considered fools will be wise, etc. It's not really as clever as people seem to think it is.

Were they roast beef sandwiches? Did the astronauts forget the pickles and mustard? What about beverage?

Dammit, this is important! Butterscotch pudding is a scandal.

"The Moon has no aviation beacons, no radar systems, no ground control etc., "

The earth didn't have any of them in 1903 either, so I guess that makes the Wright brothers flight a hoax.

"Not to mention all oxygen had to be packed..."

I saw some packed oxygen at a welding suppy place . . .

"Scopes do not give distances"? Yes they do! Ever heard of that little thing called "triangulation"?
Yet another fundie who does not grasp high-school geometry.

Also, he does not get basic newtonian mechanics, much less relativity. Those were used to calculate the flight paths of Apollo. But yes, the Astronauts had to make some corrections by hand.

As for the heat - amazingly, you do not have more heat in the space between the moon and the earth than you have on earth. That's because the intensity of the sun is pretty much the same, since you are in the same orbit. The atmosphere DOES absorb all the heat the suns radiats onto it, after all.

"For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring nothing the understanding of the prudent. I Corinthians 1:19"

In other words, "try to understand my supposed creation and masterpiece, and I will troll you to tears or insanity."

Could you remind me why we should follow such a god, again?
