Is that grass on the ground at the back of the flag?
Friends, today is the 40th anniversary of the moon landing or so they say.
There are many people around the world who think the whole moon landing thing was part of a giant hoax set up by NASA and the White House to try to show that America was more advanced than Russia in space exploration. Of course, this had important military implications during the cold war.
Some say that the films that showed Armstrong and others wandering about the moon surface was made on a Hollywood movie set. If you have an interest in such things, Wiki has an interesting section concerning the hoax theory (check: Apollo moon landing – hoax conspiracies theories) and it explores at length the various theories which are many and varied.
My current position leans towards considering that the whole thing was a hoax because firstly visits to the moon stopped abruptly after the so-called moon ‘landings’. If the whole exercise had been such a success surely the victorious Americans would have continued with this activity.
As well, we have a space station which floats around with men living in it for months at a time so if we can do that why can’t we set up a habitable outpost on the moon?
Another interesting fact is that many of those involved with the moon landing have suffered premature deaths and these include astronauts. Did they die to stop them revealing the truth?
Another factor is that America has been exposed many times carrying out false-flag operations and telling whoppers (like they want the Palestinians to have a sovereign state) while many of its Presidents have been known to stretch the truth when it suits them.
So are we again celebrating one of the great hoaxes of all time, one that competes with religion or claims of human intelligence?
Over to you!
