2. What bugs me... Jul 20, 2011, 11:17 kanniballl
What bugs me about the whole moon landing "hoax" nonsense is how stubborn the hoax-believers are.

I try to keep an open mind and consider "alternative explanations" to things, I might not believe them but a the least I consider them. Is it "possible" it was a hoax, I guess so but I don't find it likely.

But the stubborn people I've seen on TV (and even had a few classes with in college) refuse to hear anything contrary to their proof.

-This rock has the letter C on it
-Are you sure? it could just be a shadow from some arc'ed crack
-NO, it's definitely a "C" put there by the stage crew.
-NO, it's so obvious why don't you see!?!?!?

The guy in college was relatively mellow in comparison, but still stubborn. I was willing to listen to his bit but god forbid he have to listen to counter-points.

But the guys on TV, like on the Penn & Tellar episode or the occasional news story... forget about it. I think there was a special on primetime network TV a few years back about it too.
"Space. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you."
