This was originally posted on a horrible site called Myspace. When Myspace underwent a redesign in Fall 2010, hundreds of insightful reader comments that had been left over the years were lost. I have since deleted my account there.
I watched a Fox News clip with Geraldo Rivera, and learned that 25% of young people currently believe that the moon landing was faked.
Isn't that good news?
But consider some of the arguments that are being put forth by conspiracy theorists: It's possible to exactly replicate the grainy, black-and-white look of the 1969 event. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin refused to swear to God on the Bible that he had walked on the moon. (Now that's powerful evidence!) There were no stars visible in the background -- just a big black sheet, apparently, as you can't see anything in the crude video image. Neil Armstrong refuses to talk to anyone...what about that? And those reflectors that anyone can shine a laser at, they were put there by the Russians, not Apollo 11 as claimed, you see.
All of this is in a video on YouTube. You can watch it yourself!
If you want to believe, I'm sure it's highly compelling evidence. It tends to work that way, you know?
