PROVE TO ME IT'S THE MOON
If you debunkers can prove it's not a UFO in the picture, then you can prove to me that this IS the moon in these pictures.
Oh fer pete's sake! That's not how proof works. To prove that "X is not Y" one need only find a counterexample. To prove a video is a fake, one needs
to show just one instance of the hoaxery breaking down. To prove something _is_ the case, though, is a radically different proposition and, frankly, a
nonsensical one at that. Science talks about evidence, not absolute proof. No one can absolutely 'prove' that it's the moon. All we can say is "It is
consistent with what you'd expect such a photo to look like." No, you say you "have reason" to think it's a fake. Fine, what's your evidence? Show us
an obviously airbrushed section. Find a gross inconsistency between this photo and other, accepted-as-the-moon photos. Find a repeated tile. But make
no mistake: the burden of proof lies with the skeptic here.
