C'mon Mike - get a grip on reality already. You've got to tone down the sensationalizing headlines and misleading posts. There is barely a
controversy here, much less anything resembling "irrefutable proof".
There may be something happening on the lunar surface that we don't know about - there may not be. If you have a belief one or the other, that's
fine - we'll accept that - just say so and keep things in context.
I personally believe that NASA is not telling us everything that has gone on with the Apollo missions. But I don't know exactly what is being kept
from us - and I certainly enjoy reading about the various theories and conjecture presented in forums like ATS.
But to keep throwing things like this in front of us with overblown, over-dramatized headlines and commentary is, in the very least, hurting your
credibility. It also is giving the whole ATS ‘prime directive’ a black eye. By behaving in such an aggrandizing way you impugn the legitimate
debate and intelligent discussion your original topic would otherwise attract.
My advice would be to think a little more carefully before posting a new thread. Are you seriously proposing that this anomaly on the lunar surface
is, “irrefutably”, a UFO and can be absolutely nothing else whatsoever? Perhaps, you are rather just hoping to generate some ‘faux’
excitement – gain a few extra response points in the process, and figured that with an over-the-top headline and claim you can draw a few more
responders than you would have with a more honest and sensible one.
If it’s the first scenario then your reputation will be shot to hell in a heartbeat. Just take a look at the responses to this thread. The
majority, by far, thinks you’re all wet and that we’re looking at nothing more than a hill in the background (and I completely agree with them).
If your motives lie in the second scenario, then you’re in trouble, and rather than attracting thoughtful posters and encouraging meaningful
discussion you will be inviting the wrath of both ATS mods and infuriated members and rightfully so. In either case the downward spiral will be not
be pretty. Nor is it necessary.
I mean no disrespect – in fact, I think you’ve had some interesting observations and worthwhile points to make, in other threads, Mike. Let your
conscience be your guide. Be logical, sensible – considerate of others.
The photo you are showing us is NOT irrefutable proof. It is an image that contains an anomaly in the background, probably just a hill and shading,
which coincidentally, perhaps even amusingly, happens to also be in the popularized shape of a traditional UFO. You can not, and should not,
“irrefutably” claim it to be anything else.
Good luck – and keep looking up!
