OK, the consensus seems to be gelling:
1. Everything an astronaut says should be accepted at face value and never doubted.
We were to believe them when they were reporting back to Mission Control whilst on the Moon so, "yes!" We are to believe them until proven
otherwise. Their WHOLE mission and purpose was to be the eyes for the people and go where no (modern) man has gone before and report back to us. They
were explorers! So their word is and was EVERYTHING Mr Oberg!
You've got it [and so much else] entirely backwards. I do believe what they reported from the moon. The diference between us is that YOU believe what
a lot of charlatans and loonies CLAIM [falsely] the astronauts 'reported', when they didn't really.
. It's almost disrespectful which I realize.... is your profession after all. You are paid to debunk everything paranormal. Who thinks like
that? You set out to write for a magazine; Skeptical Inquirer, and challenge everyone who claims something, unusual and paranormal (mostly
UFO-related). Pardon me but now I have to challenge YOUR motives!!
You seem to be a typical fantasy-driven fool who thinks something MUST be true, so as to explain away inconvenient evidence, and then decide it MUST
be true, because YOU are right and any contrary view is wrong. But given the chance on this thread, you haven't addressed a single item of evidence
or other original research results.
Why didn't you interview Cooper while he was alive? In fact, why don't you conduct an interview with one of the remaining UFO-seeing
Perfect example where you make up some lie -- well, no doubt you believe it's true, so it's better to call it a self-delusion -- and proclaim it as
a fact to prove you've been right all along.
If you had even LOOKED at the links Arby posted earlier, you would have seen that indeed I was in contact with Colonel Cooper while he was still
alive, and with dozens of his colleagues, friends, and family members -- and with many astronauts who have been to the moon and the Mission Control
Center experts who guided them there and back, and the scientists who actually studied their photographs and other results. But you can't be bothered
with facts, you cling instead to your self-made fantasies as the evidentiary basis for your beliefs.
You're right -- you are invulnerbale to my work or any other rational argument, so we don't need to waste each other's time on this.
Seems you're picking on the only one who can't defend himself. That's not only being a bully that's also being an opportunist!
Your delusional state is both amusing and pathetic -- but within your rights in a free country.
