    I guess this is Lewis and Fry’s tribute to Q.

    I had an aunt like that back in the ’60s. I doubt she ever really accepted that we made it to the moon.

    Sputnik went up in October 1957 when I was in the 8th grade and our Science class got real excited about everything space. Then I stumbled on to my first science-fiction book in 1960 (10th grade) (Arthur C. Clark’s “Islands in the Sky”) and got hooked, reading every SF book I could get my hands on, joining the Science Fiction Book club, and wishing I could go into space (not possible for a girl in the 60s). In English, I wrote a paper on how we were preparing astronauts for space. I was thrilled by Kennedy’s pledge to go to the moon, and followed the developments avidly, and finally sat glued to the TV for the moon walk. As an aside, if it was supposed to be fake, then why didn’t they re-shoot Armstrong’s flub of what he meant to say—“That’s one small step for a man”? You can almost hear his thoughts in the pause after that sentence—“Oh God, I screwed up. That won’t make any sense. Now what … ah well, just go on with the rest of it”

    Have you ever noticed that when some pundit pronounces that something that occurred didn’t happen it’s because they can’t figure out how to do it so it must be fake.

    How did they even record the moon landing?

    I used to think that the “Flat Earth Society” was kind of a quaint fraternal organization that got together for sh*ts and giggles and didn’t really take themselves too seriously. I was very obviously wrong about that. I’ve never talked to a Flat Earther myself, but I know people who have, and Flat Earthers get very passionate not only about how the spherical Earth is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on humankind, but they have all kinds of “proof” to back it up. The thing I hate most about the internet is that it is the greatest tool conspiracy theorists everywhere could ever ask for.

    The you tube channel “Today I Found Out” has covered both of these issues, really well too.

    I actually visited the Flat Earth Society website once (I was really bored.) Most of the documents (a.k.a. blog posts) “in support of the FE theory” amounted to:

    - I believe the earth is flat- because of the evidence- which does not exist- because people who are deeply invested in the “spherical theory” have worked reallyreally hard to suppress the evidence that the earth is flat- and they would not work so hard to suppress it if it weren’t real- therefore the proof that it is flat is the fact that no evidence exists, plus also look how hard “they” have worked to manufacture all that fake evidence that it is spherical! Ha! I told you!

    It works, because then any evidence you can show them supports their theory that all evidence is faked.

    It’s funny, except for the part where it is creepy and a little terrifying.

    Nah. I was at the launch as a member of the press. Got some really good photos of the 3 astronauts getting in the capsule on the Saturn 5 and watching the thing take off. Really impressive. Actually, I have photos of all things Apollo and most of the launches.

    Obviously the earth can’t be totally flat. If it is, how do they explain the mountain ranges – they are certainly NOT flat.

    The conspiracy theorists overlook the fact that nobody can keep a secert. If so many people worked on it, why hasn’t some yokel janitor attempted it or something?

    In 1969 it was easier and cheaper to go to the moon than to fake a moon landing. They would have had to spend billions developing the camera technology and lighting equipment.

    One doesn’t have to be part of Qanon or AntiFa or whatever to be skeptical of what is on the internet or what passes for the news these days …

    Some say we only went to The Moon to meet up with other entities and people already stationed there way before Neil Armstrong. ;)
