Sounds like a lot of closed minds.
The truth is I am a sceptic. The problem is, I HAVE examined some of the claims in the attack piece against NASA/Apollo, and the plain truth is there
seems to be lots of merit to their allegations/observations.
How can you say my mind is closed? I consider myself to have an open mind. I also have examined the claims and havn't found a single one to have any
merit at all.
'You know, if you learnt about how light exposes on film, you wouldn't even consider this as a flaw or goof up. The crosshairs are etched
onto a glass plate, so when a bright amount of light shines though it and exposes onto the film, it 'bleeds' over the thin lines. It's simply how
light and film works. For example, the US flag and it's red and white stripes. The white being brighter then the red will reflect more light back and
overexpose a bit on the film, causing the light to 'bleed' over the hairs.'
I've only got one answer... Baaaahhhnnn! Wrong answer, get real.
Get real? Care to explain why that's the wrong answer? Don't tell me to 'get real' buddy. Give me an explination. If these photo were forged,
things like the crosshairs would have been perfect and flawless. Please give me your explination as to how these photos were edited and how parts of
an object get placed overtop of a crosshair then. Please explain the photo editing technique as to how one places an object, say a flag, into a photo
and how that would cause a crosshair to be partly covered by it.
Don't say 'wrong answer' without giving one yourself.
'Come on this is NASA!!!'...
Are you saying NASA doesn't keep anything from the public? You do realize NASAs primary role is military, right? How about their close working
relationship with the Air Force? No secrets, there right? No offense to any of you NASA supporters (of which I am one), but institutions do make
mistakes, do make bad decisions, do make questionable judgements, some of them fueled by an almost obsessive compulsion not to 'lose face' in the
eyes of the public.
Yes NASA has made mistakes and bad decisions. What company or organization hasn't? NASA has made some big ones though for sure. But what does this
have to do with the Moon landings being fake? NASA doesn't seem to hide from it's mistakes, they admit them and try to fix it.
'If it was all staged'...
That's quite the leap in logic. Pay attention (cuz this is subtle ). Hey we could have gone to the moon... Totally possible. A guy with a more
interdisciplanary background (even photography JRA ), might say possible by an alternate transportation. What I am saying is that the official
'visual record' is totally bogus and hack amateurish at best.
hahaha... Amateurish at best? Yeah again, please explain how and why it's amateurish. I have yet to see any holywood movie come close to looking as
real as the moon landings. Please try to give more reasons why you thinks it's bogus.
'visit badastronomy.com or even nasa.gov'
Once again, get real. Or is the Age of Reason totally dead?
Yes it does seem like the age of reason is dead, as well as common sense and logic, it's pretty sad.
Just because there is some text on a web page somewhere (its on Google, it HAS to be true!), has absolutely NOTHING to do with reason,
validity or advancing the point of view so many seem to be so dogmatically putting forth.
I'm sure you'll find more people here would agree that a lot of things on the web are not true. There's a lot of stupid # on the web that's for
Wake up people, science has become the Religion of Science. Look at some of the incredible BAD things it brings to us... SETI, the Big Bang,
Dark Matter, we are ALONE in the Universe, etc, etc.
Please! Are we THINKING people or just orange leather clad parroting hairless monkeys?
And look at all the great things it's brought us. You wouldn't be sitting there typing on your computer if it wasn't for science, nor driving a
car, hell or even riding a bike. We'd all be living in caves or really primitive huts if it wasn't for science.
How is SETI bad? I don't think it's really going to find anything, but i don't get your reasoning.
How is the Big Bang theory bad? It's not the official explination of how the universe started, it's just a theory. That's how science works, you
come up with theories and then try to disprove them. A lot of theories turn out to be wrong, but slowly we begin to figure things out.
What scientist has claimed we're alone in the universe? Not all scientists would agree with that. I would think you'd find that most scientists
would agree that there should be other forms of life out there. I believe there has to be.
We're all defiantely thinking people. We just don't all agree. Just because I don't agree with you, it doesn't make me a close minded, orange
leather claded monkey.
