    Skeptics still doubt moon landing 40 years later - Science - Canoe.ca

    I wonder if our local conspiracy theorists also believe the moon landings were a hoax.

    My grandmother, up until her death, strongly believed that the moon landings were not real and were just filmed in Hollywood. She thought the whole space program was just plain silly.

    the term conspiracy theorist is a straw man...what is the opposite ?..a non-conspiracy theorist ?....what kind of deluded individual would believe there are no conspiracy's in this world ?..anyone who suspects the truth is not told on any given subject could be deemed a conspiracy theorist...it appears their are astronauts involved in the moon landing and NASA that would indeed be considered conspiracy theorist by people such as toto

    Endorser of and proposed Commissioner of a New Investigation into 9/11 as described in the New York City Ballot Initiative 11/08: "Petition to Create a NYC Independent Commission with Subpoena Power to Conduct a Comprehensive and Fact-Driven Investigation of All Relevant Aspects of the Tragic Events of September 11, 2001 and Issue a Report.

    WHEREAS, many New York City voters believe that there remain many unanswered questions critical to establishing the truth about all relevant events leading up to, during and subsequent to the tragic attacks occurring on September 11, 2001 (“9/11”), and

    WHEREAS, no prior investigation by any New York City agency or any other governmental entity has resulted in the citizens being provided with those critical answers or information necessary to establish the truth about those tragic events, ...

    An independent, temporary New York City commission (the “Commission”) is hereby created to conduct a comprehensive, factdriven investigation into the events that took place on 9/11, as well as to thoroughly examine related events before and after the attacks, including any activities attempting to hide, cover up, impede or obstruct any investigation into these 9/11 events, following wherever the facts may lead. The Commission shall publish one or more reports of their findings."

    Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:


    "The many visual images (massive structural members being hurled horizontally, huge pyroclastic clouds, etc.) leave no doubt in my mind explosives were involved [in the destruction of the World Trade Center]." AE911Truth


    Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11, signed by more than 700 Architects and Engineers:

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7. We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7." Sign the Petition


    Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories. It would have been the tallest building in 33 states. Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers. However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks." Watch the collapse video here. And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

    Those astronauts are lying because the moon landing never happened.

    A conspiracy theorist is someone who is prone to believing in conspiracy theories, no matter how outlandish and outrageous the theories are. They rely primarily on conjecture and circumstantial evidence. They are not skeptics. In fact, quite the opposite. A skeptic is not one who is just skeptical of the government. A skeptic is one who is skeptical of all explanations. The conspiracy theorists are not skeptical of all explanations. They readily believe pretty much anything, no matter how bizarre, to support their preconceived conclusion, no matter how improbable. They are the opposite of the scientist or the empiricist. They lack context, perspective and understanding of randomness and probabilities, and are willing to make enormous leaps in logic to explain events that are often messy or unexplainable.

    The problem with you are your ilk, eots, is not that you believe the 9/11 conspiracy theories. The problem is that most 9/11 conspiracy theorists believe a wide range of conspiracies, no matter how ridiculous, and you do not apply the same level of skepticism towards your own theories that you claim to apply to official explanations.
