I read the first page, where it was debunked as you rightly say. But then i read the last page, and it looks like people are still trying to justify it as real. I thought a friendly reminder wouldn't go a miss. And there was no need to be rude. Wind yer neck in.

Yeah this was debunked on the first page as being from Weekly World News. It's a joke.
Read what's been posted before you post.
WWN never publicly questioned the accuracy of its own stories until 2004, when the paper began stating that "the reader should suspend disbelief for the sake of enjoyment".
WWN once carried a story about inhabitants of the planet Mercury who had proposed to establish a colony in San Francisco — presumably they sought a more temperate climate, where lead was generally a solid.
Throughout 2003, just prior to the capture of Saddam Hussein, and persisting after his capture, WWN ran a series of articles on an alleged romance between him and Osama bin Laden. The setup of the plot alleged Saddam Hussein once starred in gay porn films. The "couple" apparently had a steamy, sensual affair, before a wedding was performed, with Hussein as the bride and bin Laden as the groom.
In 2002 WWN reported that Saddam Hussein was hiding in his Nuclear Submarine, called the "Saddam-tilus", in Lake Michigan. In this Submarine he had a theme park and half the Iraqi military. It was also reported that he was planning to launch his nuclear missiles at New York and Los Angeles saving Washington D.C. for his new capital, where he would demolish the White House and build a new palace made of the ruins of the White House!
Abraham Lincoln, according to the paper, was mentally insane and his ghost has also been spotted in the White House giving ex President George W. Bush advice on the War in Iraq!
Weekly World News blamed the aliens for holes in the ozone. A Roswell crash survivor, "Altair Bob", made contact with "WWN" via telepathic e-mail. Several factions of extraterrestrials have been using the moon to dump garbage. Martians have been monitoring the Mid-East crisis. Warrior aliens have been resurrecting the dead, fighting Big Foot and training in a mock US town hidden in Antarctica. San Franciscans have opened their hearts to immigrants from Mercury.

I call BOGUS! on this one, and I bring evidence.
Here is a picture of the largest rock brought back from the moon.
Which is smaller than the picture of the waffle iron with the angel in it.

Why is this coming out just now?
For what convenience and agenda?
What the? (whatever)
I hate to reiterate, but the source is well... not that good. Not that I don't discount the idea of some past civilization on the moon and all, but that made me fall of my fencepost. They could at least do it a little more subtle than that.
Carry on. No panic here.

When we look at this link, we can conclude the 2000 year old flood of New York is an hoax too ? Or do these websites post any thing they come across ??

I always wonder if they test this stuff out in the crazy media to gauge the reactions of the populous. Or just release it to the crazy media to act as insurance encase the story ends up in reputable media?
