Now....sorry, now I am just a little insulted....was amused for a while, but that is quickly fading.
B-B just called us 'his darlings (sic) readers'
First, I am not your 'darling'. (Nor, am I, or anyone else, your 'dear' or 'dearest'....)
Second, we who are able to read, can see that, so far, what has been brought to this thread, by B-B, is complete nonsense. No valid refutations, by
B-B, of points raised by other posters. Nothing directly disputed, as should happen in a real debate.
Instead, valid arguments, by others.....simply ignored. A new post, by B-B, simply includes fallacious 'arguments', usually just repeats of
something from a day or two earlier, with no direct bearing on the discussion offered by anyone else.
It has been said that patience is a virtue. I think that is a good philosophy to adhere to, if possible; certainly fits in well with the foundation
of ATS... But, as I may have pointed out here (or was it somewhere else?) even a host of teachers....even twenty teachers...may not be able to teach
(Or, to be charitable, those who wish not to be taught)
Rather than adopting an accusatory additude, towards an ATS member, I wish to say that, in my opinion, B-B can simply not be shown how wrong he/she
is....at least, not on this Board. Meaning, it is impossible, via the Internet, to properly explain the misconceptions that seem to lie at the heart
of why B-B just doesn't get it.
Heaven knows, many of us have tried, very hard, to explain. All commendable efforts.....
I started, as I began to write this post, with a little harshness, but instead of deleting it, I left it in. I think the adults in the 'thread' can
read it, and judge for themselves.
This 'Moon Consipiracy' idea has legs......but not in the way this particular thread has been taken....'diverted', if you will, by B-B.
I think the OP wanted to promote the premise that Apollo was not 'faked'....not in the way some CTers wish to promote. Apollo landed 12 men on the
The 'conspiracy' begins to develop around what those 12 (well, 15...actually, 18, if you count Apollo 13[even though they were busy trying to stay
alive]....well, 9 more, once you think about Apollos 8, 9 and 10).
edit to add....that was poorly written. 12 landed, in the LMs. I refer, in the paragraph above, to other Astronauts who travelled to the Moon, in
addition to the 12 who landed, in the Apollo Program.
Point I am trying to make....Apollo sent men to the Moon. END of that 'conspiracy'. Where some of the confusion starts, and what probably
contributes to this alleged CT theory in the first place, is.....what they saw, and could not talk about.
So, the OP calls it 'An End To The Moon Conspiracy'....but there are more than one 'conspiracies' to ponder....
Just food for thought.....either I am full of it, or someone will come along and add to what I just spent ten minutes typing!!
Like to hear from you! Comments are welcomed...
actually saw, while there on or in orbit around the Moon, but were told not to speak about.
