1st time poster here. Its my pleasure to happen upon this BBS . Anyhow, I purchased the 3 volume Time/Life books titled 'A Man on the Moon'. I read them in a week flat and went out on the internet to further my knowledge of the Apollo missions. I was freakin' appalled at all the sites dedicated to debunking NASA's accomplishments regarding the manned Moon missions. I was actually getting pissed off when (I) was being described as a 'nutter' for believing the science was legit.
I am no expert in space or gov't. conspiricies but I must admit feeling a bit 'taken for a fool' when visiting these websites.
One of the webites I visited that claimed the Apollo missions were faked had photos overlaying text and basically looked like a 5 year old put the webpage together. I responded via e-mail to the site saying something to the effect, 'if you are trying to dislodge the technical achievements of NASA during the manned Apollo missions puts you in a place of technical authority. So, why can't you get something as 'low-tech' as a website formatted properly?
I admit I got a bit of a chuckle when I hit the 'send' button on that one.
I guess my question is, why are there people out there that do not believe men went to the moon? What more do they need to believe it? What is the crux of their disbelief?
I can understand the occasional fringe-element fruit-cake opinion of a 'staged moon landing' -but there seems to be alot of non-believers out there. As for myself, I believe it all really happened.
Thank you in advance for your comments.
