<--- instant 5 star thread. It has Neil deGrasse Tyson in it now.
" I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?"
You can't really use that comic strip either. They've put two different rovers on Mars, with the second one involving a heinously complex landing.
Ok, ok, 3, but that first one was just digging a nice hole...
Honestly, the whole fake moon landing argument is so stupid. If the shit was faked, the KGB would have been able to blow it wide open. They were able to infiltrate one of America's most top secret programs in history, with the development of the atomic bomb. Do you really think it would have been tough to embed themselves within something as large as the Apollo missions, or even be able to buy out someone that was within the inner workings? Of course they could have, and they never did. Discussion over.
Don't they have any satellites near or passing the moon.
Couldn't they just snap a few pictures of where the space landing happened and provide irrefutable proof of the landing to disprove all these wild theories.

Video is stupid as hell. Like anybody who thinks the moon landing was faked is gonna be convinced otherwise by that video?
Tell Neil Armstrong, Colin, and Aldrin.
Tell them not to boast.
My grandfather says
Neil armstrong was not the first!!
My grandfather knows
Everything in the Universe.
My grandfather says
The man in the moon will cut out thier throats.
What became of the man in the moon
My grandfather used to talk about?
My grandfather say there is a moon man, so!!!
You better watch out!

The black obelisk got him.
Otherwise no, we don't have satellites going "near" the moon because it's about 385,000 km away. Most satellites orbit anywhere from 500km to 40,000 km, so they're still extremely far away.
However, mirrors were left on the moon that are used to this day for various science experiments: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_L...ing_experiment
Whoops, actually, apparently the LROC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_R...ssance_Orbiter) did snap some shots good enough to show equipment, flags, and tracks on the moon.
Didn't they prove it in the Big Bang theory?

Well, it's kinda like refuting flat earthers. It's been done well enough already that only people working for NASA or hipster-looking doucebags are gonna bother to take it on.
There any way to put a satellite orbiting the moon? That would be fucking cool.

make it a military objective and it will be there tommorrow.
WE MUST ATTACK THE MOON >:U!!
I'm all for building a huge space gun.
Wow, I really liked that video. He drives some good points, if not the most important being to devote time to the worthwhile conspiracies that truly affect us.
Also, I think you are allowed to dress and talk like that if you are over 50 and have been working in film your whole life. It isn't hipster if you lived it.
Mostly penises. Just me?
That's what I thought to, but man there's some people on the flat earth society forum with years of participation and thousands of posts all defending flat earth theory. I'm good at detecting trolling because I does it so often, but these guys aren't hitting any trolling jokes.
Honestly I'm not highly studied in Flat Earth Theory. My guess is that it's an elaborate apparatus built up in a sedimentary fashion around a mostly defensible core, that core being a critique of untempered empiricism.
And while there are perfectly valid theoretical/philosophical critiques of empiricism to be made those are very dry and very boring and mostly written in french or latin or math.
Flat Earthing is fun for the whole family. From what little I do know about it they also seem to miss the point that our empiricism is tempered, not untempered.
The best part about the Flat Earthers is the sub-section who believe in bio-luminescent moon shrimp.

Flat earthing is fun and all until you go to the top of a tall building and notice the curvature of the horizon and rralize what an utter fool you are.
On the flat earth society there's an indecipherable pile of shitmath that may or may not explain away that 'phenomena'.
An even better example of what you said is that if you go out on a sailboat you can drop anchor right when you lose sight of land, then climb the mast and see it.
Here's the defense of it:
where the argument rests upon human sight being non-linear, as in:
I'm elated quineloe watches big bang theory
This thread would have been orders of magnitude more fun to read if Lumie was here.
Sniper school > flat earth. Long range shots use the curvature of the earth in their calculations, if the earth was flat, US snipers would be missing every shot.
Not to mention the Coriolis effect.
Like I figgured artillery fire would use it to calculate where they want the shit to actually land, but I didn't even think you could have sniper rifles that would shoot like a fucking mile or two away. (And still have enough force left when they got to the target to be more than 'plink').

Damn. 4/5 of a mile.
I need to start closing my drapes.
BTW, i shot an Accuracy international AW Rifle with a S&B scope 3 years ago (most of you are familiar with it as AWP variant from counter strike). The whole set up was like $14,000 or something, I think it was chambered for the .338 lapua. It felt like i got kicked by a mule in the shoulder. After 3 shots I had to walk away and massage my shoulder out.
Didn't hit crap either. i suck.
This Flat Earth shit is one deep rabbit hole. It's kept me entertained all day.
If the porn isn't high res you can't get horny, but you can hate a guy at 1000 paces without a scope. That's human nature.
