This is not a "take down". It's a very clear and well explained analysis of what's happening, sprinkled with extremely dry jibes at Elon's propensity to meme everything, delivered in an absolutely deadpan fashion.

Are You Eating a Credit Card Every Week? - Hank Green

Quote:
No. But how we ended up here is very weird and I really wanted to talk about it. Here are the things that had to go wrong for this headline to spread across the internet:

1. An organization funded science because they wanted a talking point.
2. The organization amplified a misleading version of what the study found.
3. The authors of another paper were mislead, though it would have been easy not to be mislead because they're scientists.
4. Peer review did not catch the stat because it was a background stat, not part of the papers methods or results which peer review doesn't spend much (if any) time on.
5. News outlets did not investigate the source of the background stat and published it as if it were fact.
6. Humans with varying levels of reach and power online took mainstream headlines at face value and did not check before sharing.

Well, I guess he hooked up with Linda in 1967, and subsequently went vegetarian in 1975 so that may have helped.

After careful consideration, they should open up the Akl Harbour bridge for cyclists, obviously some modifications will need to be made.

Do you believe the moon landing was fake?

I think it is highly likely that it was faked. There are a lot of anomalies and things which don't seem right, and a lot was at stake. If I was to quantify my certainty, I'd probably go with 10% chance it actually happened how we were told, with 90% likelihood the US practiced their art of deception.

As I think I've said before, I find it incredible, in a literal sense. Very hard to believe. In that 10% chance that I consider it may have actually happened, it was an absolutely fantastic achievement. But considering what was at stake, I would apply Occam's Razor and say the simpler solution of faking the moon landing to get the accolades is easier than to actually send men to the moon in such a short time frame without a hitch.

I would find it much easier to believe if the US had a reputation of honesty and integrity, but unfortunately that is not the case. As the video states, it has become a religion for many people, and /if it were the case/ that the moon landing was faked, it would be an uncomfortable feeling for many people to accept that governments are corrupt and do dishonest things for money and power. While I think we all know it's the case, most of us just shuffle it away in the back of our minds.

For the record, I also don't believe:
- that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction (this is accepted now)
- that Building 7 fell of its own accord (explosives)
- that a plane hit the Pentagon (missile)
- that "Oswald" killed JFK (CIA assassination)
- that Epstein killed himself (murdered?)
- that McAfee killed himself (murdered?)
- that Biden won the election fairly (too many anomalies, too corrupt to lose)
- that governments value your privacy (this is accepted now)
- that COVID vaccines work (they clearly don't)
- that Prince Andrew doesn't sweat (he's just a man with a good lawyer)
- that Diana's "accident" was accidental
- that governments/powerful people are honest in general

On a side note, I watched "House of Hammer" last night - a documentary about Armie Hammer and how his wealthy family have been powerful for generations and have gotten away with things because of money. Although the story is more about Armie's dark side of abusing women. There's an interesting connection to then Prince Charles that features in it, although there is no "smoking gun" implicating him in anything specific. It's more to suggest how having fuck you money leads to having powerful connections and a bizarre sense of entitlement/invincibility.

That's a function of your ignorance. If you knew more about the moon landing you would recognise how exceptional the claim that the moon landing was faked is.

The options are grand pervasive conspiracy, like They Live level of conspiracy, that's ongoing. Or the moon landing happened. The moon landing would be easier.

There's a huge volume of public knowledge, more than any one person can truly digest, available about the moon landing. Technology in use today can be traced back to its development during the Apollo program. There any many people with their careers and all the documents, artefacts, memories and most importantly competency that came with working on the project. Things that would take exceptional effort and expertise to fake and an ever growing volume of people willing to keep a secret.

To fake the moon landing, yet have it produce all this genuine technical value? To spawn a genuine space industry? And have it all kept secret?

Maybe. Perhaps the CIA's LSD experiments bore more fruit than they let on, something we're all under the sway of now. They must have found something to make them super-smart too, unless I'm delusional about this functional computer and the hyper-complex system it connects to, the infrastructure it depends on.

I'm hoping you actually watched the interview, otherwise there's really no point discussing the video.

I'm not saying everything to do with space/NASA is fake - that's a misinterpretation. Rockets? Sure, I believe in them. Probes sent out? Yup. Scientific unmanned missions? I've no reason to doubt them. But you can be running late on a project, and do a contrived smoke and mirrors demo of your product - without people realizing it was incomplete - then get back to work after the demo. Not everyone involved would have to know it's fake. Being an unwitting operator sitting in the control room on Earth being fed bogus data would appear the same as the real thing. The timing was the critical factor - it was, after all, a space RACE. That would be the motivation for faking it - not to produce fake competency and fake data about space. Of course NASA exists, and they developed technology for space missions. I do believe in the International Space Station.

As I say, I'm not 100% certain, but there are a lot of things which seem off and makes me dubious about it all happening in 1969 as we're told. Not just the anomalies in the footage, but even the head of the program quitting just before the launch, and all 3 astronauts resigning shortly after the mission with their glum looks at the debriefing and Neil Armstrong refused to do interviews: "First man on the moon, what can you tell us about your experience?" "No comment" wtf?

The documentary "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Moon" is Bart Sibrel's work and you can watch that (torrent) if you're interested. Or you can refuse to watch it because it's not Government authorized material and may contain untruths and break the spell.

It's fairly inconsequential whether you or I believe it or not, or whether we agree. I just have a healthy skepticism of things which appear to be bullshit that have loads of money and "national security" involved, while you have a passion for believing that everything about science is great and amazing. Pessimism vs optimism. And that's OK.

Anyway, this isn't a thread to debate the moon landing, I just thought the video was interesting, and how boring would life be if we accepted that everything we're told is the truth, and thought that no one ever tells lies. But that's what a lot of people seem to think.
