Brian O’Leary DID have doubts about the moon landings at one time. Nobody disputes that. For the record, his doubts were more around if footage
was staged because of logistical issues, not so much if we went or not.
After I co-discovered Armstrong’s Leap with Jay Windley,
it removed Brian’s residual doubt.
Those new to the lunar controversy may not understand why that evidence was compelling. I provide some background here:
Has anybody else in this forum removed an astronaut’s doubt about the moon landings? If so, I will eagerly read your posts.
I first met Brian in 1991, when I ferried him from the airport for a new science conference, and partly because I was part of the most significant
effort yet made to bring alternative energy to the American marketplace:
Brian invited me to be a founding board member of the New Energy Movement:
They still link to my site:
although I stepped down three years ago. I suggest that if anybody really wants to test their Apollo mission evidence, they submit it to Jay
For the record, once Brian’s residual doubt was removed, I got Jay in touch with Brian, which resulted in this on Jay’s site:
Badge01 dismisses Brian’s testimony today, preferring to promote the Brian O’Leary that once had doubts, not the Brian O’Leary who had his doubt
removed long ago. For those who like to assess real EVIDENCE, just look at Badge01’s date of Brian’s email (February 2001) versus my account
(August 2001) and that correspondence date that Jay puts on his site (August 2001). But Badge01 dismisses all of that because it is
“revisionist.” Of all the irrational responses I have seen in ATS, Badge01’s “logic” here might be the topper. Brian is still alive and
can be asked today what he thinks, instead of presenting something from long ago that does not reflect his views today.
Jay and friends are some real experts on the issue, and Jay is very good at just dealing with the evidence – the best I have seen on the Internet.
Your evidence will receive a fair, professional assessment, but if you merely recycle the tired old hash that people like Badge01 serve up, the
responses may sting a little. When people have approached me over the years with their “evidence” that the moon landings were faked, I send them
Jay’s way. It has proven to be an enlightening experience for those who have done so. For those who prefer clinging to their delusions, submitting
their “evidence” for professional consideration has proved too daunting a task.
Again, the lunar landings are a real time waster, if somebody is looking for evidence that the moon landings never happened. The “evidence” that
Badge01 has presented is all at about the quality of Brian’s “residual doubt” that vanished several years ago. If anybody wants to aspire to
any cred on these issues, they need to do their homework. I spent ten years, on and off, looking at the Apollo evidence. Teenage boys surfing the
net and posting up their “research” is not going to advance the issue. I have tried raising the bar for evidence that the moon landings were
There ARE cover-ups regarding NASA. My father worked in the Mission Control Room with his top-secret security clearance. There was definitely a
quasi-military atmosphere at NASA during the Space Race. However, the moon landings really happened. Or, stated another way, no evidence put forth
of faking the moon landings has ever withstood scrutiny, and I have analyzed ALL the lines of evidence put forth, and nothing of substance has
appeared on the lunar hoax scene (as far as supporting the argument that the lunar landings were faked) since I found what I was looking for in 2001.
While the process of analyzing the Apollo evidence was educational and I am glad I did it, it has been astounding and disheartening to continually see
the same stuff recycled on the Internet ad naseum, and people like Badge01 ignore new evidence coming to light because it invalidates his
“evidence.” There are much better ways to spend your time than looking at continually recycled “evidence” that the moon landings never
happened. Of course, for people who just love dreaming about “conspiracies,” even where none exist, then by all means keep serving up and
“analyzing” this stale stuff. While getting to the bottom of “conspiracies” can be very good work indeed, conspiracism is a disease of the
mind and spirit.
