  1. No, the people who claim the photographic record of the lunar landings have been fabricated have been conclusively proven wrong. No doubt at all. ALL the claims have been proven false - but that won't stop those same people making the claims and fooling the laymen.
  2. Welcome, Tyler!
  3. WTF is going on with trump and his administration? Okay, making major changes will take time but Trump is acting as far from presidental as you can get. Sure, he's different, not a mainstream politician but a bit of a radical.... however he seems to be deliberately trying to screw things up. He's alienated former allied nations, alienated US departments, even caused great concern within his own party! What's going on? He seems to be trying to destroy himself.
  4. Seriously - this guy is not only a clown, he's a dangerous lying clown. I wonder how many people who voted for him are now thinking "Gee... I wish I hadn't of done that...".
  5. One of the worst websites for quackery and woo - Natural News - has been dumped from the Google search engine. Yay! http://www.skeptics.com.au/2017/02/23/google-wont-list-natural-news/
  6. And this is probably a contributing reason for them doing so: http://www.skeptics.com.au/2017/03/15/belle-gibson-guilty-but-delusional-and-now-for-the-next-fad/
  7. Wow! Brief intro but interesting... especially the last part. Underwater treasure or sticking to the shore?
  8. Never knew about that. Thanks!
  9. Doug, would it be possible for you to give a brief precis of your links and perhaps your own comment? When I see a link without anything else, I don't follow it. This may be to my disadvantage but..... Many thanks.
  10. Many thanks, Bob. Hope you enjoy the Forum.
  11. Anything more? A bit sparse on details there, Bob....
  12. You are forgetting that Eisenhower proposed the "Open Skies" policy, which the Soviet government of the time rejected.
  13. Hi Micah! Welcome to the Forum. Hope you benefit from it. Cheers!
  14. Robert - have you sorted this out? Need any further help?
  15. Hi Toby - welcome to the Forum!
  16. Hi Geno - welcome to the Forum. Any relatives in Australia? I know a Kate Munari...
  17. I do hate how many on the CT side of the shop insist on blaming every tragedy on "deep politics". A maniac shoots up a mall - it is MK Ultra. A madman commits 'suicide by cop' - it's a CIA plot. Overseas radical groups commit mass murder - it's a link to finacial dealings. These people make me sick... and I think they, themselves, need to seriously look at their own mental health because IMO it is pretty poor.
  18. David, you may be right. I lose patience with 'Moon Hoaxers' and such-like.
  19. I saw a good post that relates to this: "I'll never understand the mentality of people that hate the US government so much that they will believe they are capable of such evil whilst simultaneously denying that there are people out there are people that hate the US government so much that [they] will attack the US because they believe the US government is evil."
  20. An excellent little podcast which in this episode talks about a new group of "flat Earthers" and what they really believe. https://skeptoid.com/episodes/4521 If you don't want to listen to the podcast, you can read the transcript on that same page.
  21. I'm sorry but I always have to laugh about this. Fuel at USD$2.00 per US gallon. USD$2.00 = AUD$2.66 (Australian dollar) US GAL = 3.7854 Litres That means you are paying about AUD$0.70 per litre. In NSW we are paying about AUD$1.24 per litre and that is relatively cheap. We were down to AUD$0.94 per litre a few months ago and everyone was saying how cheap fuel was... The difference between countries, I guess.
  22. As you know, I don't get involved in the JFK debate but very sorry to hear of the passing of one of our Forum members.
  23. From the website: The first part of Moon Hoax: Debunked! begins with Race for the Moon, a quick primer on the historical background of the Moon race, followed by How We Went to the Moon, a description of the hardware and the events of a typical Apollo Moon mission. Then there's a chapter that provides a detailed explanation of the best evidence of the Moon landings and a chapter covering the origins and popularity of the various hoax theories. The rest of the book is dedicated to a point-by-point debunking of the main “moon hoax” claims and common misconceptions regarding the Moon landings, divided by category: alleged anomalies in photographs and in video and film footage, technological and physical anomalies, and other miscellaneous claims. There’s also a chapter on how to argue with a Moon hoax believer, one covering the various UFO claims and one with a list of questions that will befuddle any hoax believer by pointing out the contradictions of his or her claims. Finally, you will find a chapter that shows how the Apollo missions don't need conspiracy theories to be a fascinating story. For example, did you know how close to failure each flight actually came? Did you know that pictures of Playmates were smuggled to the Moon to prank the astronauts? Or that there was a secret Soviet plan to land a Russian on the Moon before the US? The book is also an opportunity to explore the technology of the space race: not only the rocketry but also the analog photography, film and television technology used to provide the visual record of the Moon missions.

  24. I believe there was to be a second season? Might be wrong but that is what I thought.
