I guess a few things have changed since the first moon missions, such as the ability to question facts rather than blindly accept them?
And as we all know, we do tend to cling to the 'official' story dont we?
Had no one ever gone against the grain, then NASA would have never gotten off the ground, that ol' flat earth story took some killing, so much in
fact that it actually did the rounds again after we 'forgot' the earth was round!
I dont think any conspiracy was involved there, people just had other things on their mind at the time, not as if intercontinental travel was the main
leisure pursuit it is these days.
The advent of mass unrestricted spread of varying views through the internet, apart from cultivating outrageous theories, also encourages more lucid
ideas to geminate and grow. Im not sure that ridiculing all ideas that are at odds with mainstream views is a good thing in that respect.
We're like kids...."What if" & "why" are two of the most powerful tools the brain has to make sense of things it doesnt understand, so what the
best reply to these questions? "Because A=B +C means Xmas" or " Cos daddy says so now shut up!"
Plausible.......thats all a thing has to be, nothing more and theres no need to do anything other than log it for future reference and move on. Most
of the pros & cons in this saga are exactly that, until a proveable fact dictates otherwise. And it must prove it, not just by regurgitating their own
'evidence', but by solid incontrovertible facts available to anyone.
What someone couldnt get about my previous post in which I was speaking figuratively, was that if a new theory becomes 'plausible' then it doesnt
instantly negate your first view, it merely compliments it with a different one, a debating point, something to perhaps pull some common elements from
and possibly arrive at the truth?
Constant calls of "BS" etc add nothing to the debate, some guys seem to get it, some get off on it and truth be told, thats where their real
entertainment lies and not in the discussion of the subject.
