    How hard can landing on the moon be???

    Actually, the Russians have indeed said the moon landing was fake. But they also said the CIA killed Kennedy. So what do they know, those ol' vodka-swilling Commies..?

    Once you get down to the moon's atmosphere, it should be quite like landing on Earth. A little different, but they were prepared for those differences, as they had made plenty enough research and practice. For an experienced pilot, I don't think it's extremely difficult. The hard part is creating space shuttles that can travel safely in space. Which has been proven many times, with all the exploding shuttles.

    I'm also very curious about the purpose of a fake moonlanding. How would they profit from it?
    Merchandise?

    Oh, yeah. Moon landings. No prob.

    Moon rocks. It's funny how many years it took me to realize that the "moon rocks" that were being officially sold by the government and purchased by my parents and given to me as a child were in fact not from the moon.

    Also, it was a multi-billion dollar program. That money goes somewhere. And if you're not actually paying for what you're claiming to be paying for, it's even more obscene profit all around.

    The "missile gap" myth was spread throughout the '50s to mobilize huge spending increases on additional and unneeded warheads.

    Vietnam was a completely unnecessary war, but it became the single biggest business in America in the late-'60s. LBJ and Nixon kept promising to pull out, and no one really made an effort to destroy Nixon until he'd won reelection in '72 and then proceeded to finally scale down the war and withdraw. (Not that I'm particularly sympathetic to Tricky Dick).

    And the war on terror today is the same thing. We don't really know what ISis really is.

    These are all ways to raid the Treasury again and again of middle class tax revenues in order to re-route those revenues into the coffers of the super-rich who already have everything anyway. While slicing away more and more at the expectations of the middle class as to what they can anticipate getting back for their taxes.

    Was the moon landing one of these deceptive Treasury-raiding programs? I, for one, don't know for sure. But I now think the "it was a hoax!" crowd deserve to not have their arguments dismissed out of hand. And, over time, I've found the debunkers and their smug tactics in attempting to portray anyone who doesn't believe the official version to be "crackpots" less and less credible than I once did.

    I'm more likely to believe it when I see Victoria on the lunar surface burning the birth certificate she buried in a crater on Tranquility Bay.

    Ah, but that's the thing with being rich. The only way to keep all that money is to have more, otherwise it'll disappear.

    Are you sure it wasn't faked?

    Here's a much more important question: What does the moon do when it's not visible in the night sky?

    Coffee break? Vacationing to Jupiter? Napping in dark pajamas?

    Perhaps it has something to do with this generation growing up with the Internet where no absurd conspiracy theory goes un-aired at length, juxtaposed with a mainstream media where no conspiracy scenario is given attention at all.

    The result? An age of kids who believe everything and yet believe nothing.

    Not that I'm being serious. Or am I?

    Anyway, those of us old enough to recall how, say, the JFK assassination was the only major conspiracy theory out there for eons have now seen outrageous theory on top of theory on top of theory about other issues effectively obscure and swallow up the ones that have a basis. It's all gotten lost in the shuffle.

    But is that a conspiracy theory in itself?
