Everytime I tune into one of the "We never went to the moon!" debates, I laugh my socks off. However, no matter how many times it has been proven that we did indeed go there, and land and walk about, a hundred new 'doubters' are somehow spewed out of the more stagnant depths of the gene pool. Time to speak up I guess. My proof is astoundingly simple. Anyone who understands 'basic radio' can understand it too. What amazes me is that virtually no one bothers to mention it anymore.
During the launch phases and the landing phases, literally thousands of HAM radio operators all over the world not only received, but copied transmissions from the Eagle and Trinity Base. Not only were high gain directional arrays pinpointing the source of the signals as the moon, they had also signal-tracked the spacecraft all the way from earth, tracking it accurately and with the interest and zeal typical of the radio amateurs across the globe. Further, no secondary signal sources were detected during that entire decade of moon landings - therefore no signal repeating ('bouncing' from earth to moon and back) could have been taking place. The reason that secondary, earth-originated sources were even monitored for is that the amateurs closely listed to all NASA transmissions as part of the enjoyment and the requirements of the hobby. Add these several thousand amateurs, who I might add were absolutely rapt over such an historic event, to the several thousand professional scientific research facilities and University Astronomy departments who were also monitoring these wonderful events, and you have what's known as 'reality'.
Additionally, if you think that the above persons could be so easily fooled, just go and try to pass an Advanced Class Radio Operator license test - or better yet grab a PHD in Astrophysics or Radio Astronomy.
I guess that the only people that might want to butt up against this little piece of golden proof are those bean-brains that couldn't grasp a weeny little clue as to how a simple radio works if their reputations depended upon it (er...Doh!).
What astounds me the most is that there appears to be one hell of a lot of these bean-brains, and it appears that no matter what sort of evidence you slap them in the kisser with, they will cling to such idiotic assumptions as if their very lives (or egos) - (or bank accounts) - really DID depend on it.
Well, lets say that if there are so many of these fools floating around, and there is nothing you can do or say to convince them all of the simple truth, then why shouldn't anyone with the time and desire write a book of 'Space Conspiracies' and charge them all each a few dollars for a copy and get rich? Is there anything inherently wrong with making a fortune off the stupidity of a hysterical mass of absurd, little-minded, genetically deficient morons? Apparently, this has indeed been done - successfully too!
I have seriously thought about it, - I could use a million bucks for sure - but the reason I have not - so far - is that to do so would merely perpetuate all this embarrassingly stupid tripe and, as well, I don't want all the 'Flying Saucer People' (you know - the ones who live under the giant face on Mars) to know how blatantly stupid some of our fellow humans can be.
Determining that human life is too dumb to be of any real worth, the Aliens might just wipe us out like so many bothersome fungi spores and raid the earth for something inherently more valuable - like an essentially perfect place to live that also has a lot of valuable water and a wealth of natural resources. OR - they might figure that by removing whatever miniscule amount of useful gray matter we have they could turn us into slaves to carve more ugly faces on airless planets to tease all those other dumb races with. Who can say? This is my main worry...
I bet the old geezer who started all of this 'Fake Moon Mission Stuff' is kicking back on his yacht in the Bahamas and giggling up a storm while sipping pina colodas and frolicking with a couple of island cuties as his publication royalties exponentially multiply. I mean - this guy, shameless as he is - has no worries about anything for the rest of his life! Can you really blame him?
And for all those fans of mine out there - Don't forget to pick up my latest book "The Pope is a Zombie", wherein I describe in minute detail how colonies of collectively intelligent flatworms took over Pope John Paul's body several years ago and, though still somewhat clumsy at it (as can be noticed if you look at him), are about to declare war on Rhodesia. I then launch into detailed speculation on the reasons why they even bother..
All The Very Best! (yawn)
