The Flat Earth Society, a group dedicated to the idea that the Earth is flat, was among the first to propose that the Moon landing was a
hoax. Over the years, when polled, a
whopping 6-28% of the people believe in this hoax. Many, if not all the arguments against the
moon landing have been refuted.
James Longuski, a professor of Aeronautics at Purdue University stated, “the size and complexity of the alleged conspiracy theory
scenarios make their veracity an impossibility. More than 400,000 people worked
on the Apollo project for nearly ten years, and a dozen men who walked on the
Moon returned to Earth to recount their experiences. Hundreds of thousands of
people, including astronauts, scientists, engineers, technicians, and skilled
laborers, would have had to keep the secret. Longuski also contends that it would have been
significantly easier to actually land on the Moon than to generate such a
massive conspiracy to fake such a landing.”
I was curious if currently, any atheists here believe in the hoax? Or any one that you might know
of? Do they give any new and exciting arguments,
or do they just stick to the ones already proven wrong? While differences of religious beliefs tend
to get my blood boiling, nothing angers me more than someone who stands behind
the Moon hoax.
One thing I’ve noticed is people who can be definitively proven wrong, will still stick by their claims and suggest the information is
wrong or a fallacy. Even if God is
definitively proven wrong someday, people will still believe. It’s really a battle that can never be won.
