I don't know what to think of this video, supposedly they landed on Mars may 2nd 1962 and it was a joint USA-USSR venture to the red?blue?planet.
The footage is of well.. probably what 1962 footage looked like.
Personally i believe it to be believable, then again it could have been a test video filmed in death valley california, who knows right?

Forgive me for not stickin' around i gotta go, but i'll check back in later with the replies.

alternative 3 was a very clever april fools day 'mockumentary'.

it fooled a lot of people and still does apparantly. watch it if you can find it, as its tv spoofing at its finest but thats all it is
i think the cast list is even on imdb

...thread w/ link to interview here on ATS..... I've watched/seen this "Mars Landing" footage, think about Mr J Lear's thoughts on the matter. 600 million, living within the planet, totalitarian gov't and about 50 years more advanced then we are. I can see all that to be true, check THIS called "Martians" if you haven't yet. It's about a year old. . . .

Um, have you even read this thread? It was a TV spoof, a joke, a ruse. You can see the ACTORS on IMDB for crying out loud. Look before you leap, or you make yourself look like someone who is so desperate to believe, for some unusual personal reason, that you will fall for anything.

How about being nice to someone for once IgnoretheFacts, I've 'seen' you on thread after thread being rude to people volunteerily -- yeah, I've been going through back catalogs of threads, reading some of the threads in their entirety and others, just posting on since I know the topic, fine, you disagree w/ the topic, I didn't look at this particular link but the thread I included about Martians and what J Lear thinks is far from a hoax. I think you're bound for the ignore list, or should I ask you what "facts to ignore" first?

edit: just saw a thread of yours about calling J Lear a "disinfo agent" -- sure, whatever, you got some really interesting threads going there. Insert sarcasm and see you. . ..

I'm sorry your skin is so thin that you can' take the slightest bit of common sense pointed in your direction. I sure hope you grow up a little bit in the future, lol.

Seriously though, this is not a police state, and nothing I posted towards you wash harsh whatsoever. Do you even read this board?!? I mean, you say you checked all my posts (I would think that would have made you smarter by now, lol, if you really read through all pages of them) but do you really even bother ro read this board? Your post alone in this thread indicates you didn't even bother to read a FEW POST THREAD before throwing you misguided 2 cents in. AND, if you really bother to read, and understand ATS, you will see an absolute TON of posts that are way more offending than you you misconstrued as offensive towards you. Have you read those and cried about those posts as well? Your making yourself look like a fool in mosts of your posts, there I said it. You can officially start your crying to the mods now, lol.

I missed that when I accused you of not reading and understanding something before posting. Thank you for confirming it. For crying out loud, you don't bother to check a link that a thread IS ABOUT and feel the need to comment in it? Like I said in my previous post...........

Anhinga, please add me to your ignore list, so I do not need to suffer through your ignorant comments regarding my posts, lol. Plus, it's funny how most of us "skeptics" really don't ignore anybody, but most of the blind believers love to ignore people that call them out or dare show them the light of common sense, reason and logic. It's like a three year old covering his eyes and proclaiming "you can't see me", lol.

Reality is the only thing that doesn't go away when you stop believing in it.

Ugh nevermind.

Waste of time and I don't feel like arguing with anyone and wasting more ATS bandwidth.
