For those who do not already know, I am going to enlighten you to the tactics used in the vast majority of Moon and Mars anomaly pictures, with the
intention of promoting knowledge and hopefully quelling disinformation. Richard C. Hoagland is the most notorious, in my opinion, for these fake
anomaly videos, but there are a plethora of other, less popular individual peddling their ignorance on the internet.
Your first clue should be that the image requires "special software" and "enhancements" to become visible. I am not an expert on the software used
by forensic investigators for image processing, but I am relatively well-versed in image enhancement in general, and from the personal knowledge I
have, I state with 100% certainty that these "enhancements" are introducing artifacts into the image that usually appear to blend within the image
itself. This is normal, and the data was not originally present in the image.
These people who peddle this disinfo need to realize, if they actually believe what they saying, that they are NOT "uncovering" something buried in
an image, but they are ADDING something that was not originally present. As I said, this is the biggest sham used in these types of videos, but there
are other methods they will utilize to get you to buy their positions. I honestly do not think these people are lying to us on purpose, but rather
they actually believe what they are doing is spreading truth. This is because attention has been paid to the subject by fringe subject "experts" who
really do not know what they are talking about. You must remember that the vast majority of conspiracy theories are actually nothing of the sort. A
true government conspiracy of magnitude, with far-reaching effect, does not come around very often. But if you believe everything you read on this
site and others, you would think they happen everyday.
I really am concerned with only the truth, because I want my fellow citizens to be educated. The more you know, the better off I will be, because I
can only influence a few people. But when others know the truth and spread it, many more people will open their eyes. The majority of people are
"asleep" or are sheep, as we like to say, but many, many conspiracy theorists are just as deluded, but in the opposite direction. So please, listen
to what I am saying.
Back on topic, another method that is utilized is finding "square structures" upon zooming into an image. Ya, these are called pixels. When you zoom
into any image, especially a black and white one, you are going to see the same thing. Another misunderstanding comes when those who are trying to
find things on the Moon or Mars don't take the time to learn how the images are stitched together. They don't just take one big picture of the
planet or moon and voila. Not hardly. So anyone who is planning on trying to convince other people of something, do your homework. If you don't, and
only continue to SAY you do, you are part of the problem and you are simply lying to yourself and others.
I should also note that there are some enhancements that can be done to these types of photos, but they are enhancements, and nothing more. They do
not make something that was invisible suddenly visible, with the exception of extremely specialized software that analyzes an image pixel by pixel
with the intention of locating something such as tampering. The majority of the public does not have access to this type of expensive, expert,
specialized software, because they have no need for it. It isn't like Photoshop or anything, lol. So all I am saying to you guys is to actually pay
attention to these types of things, and never blindly believe what anyone says, especially when it involves something out of the ordinary. And if
believing fake Mars pictures is actually ordinary for you, and you are easily convinced of things, you should probably take a break from the
conspiracy websites. Just a friendly suggestion.
I do apologize if my tone has been demeaning in any way. I have learned that these types of websites can turn a person cynical extremely quickly,
which I suppose anyone who has been around these places long enough could attest to.
