BABlogee William Blakeslee recently sent me a link to a site that is still debating the veracity of the Moon landings. Read it if you can stomach it; the claims being made by the Hoax Believers are ones that even Joe Rogan would leave alone. One guy is claiming we couldn't have made it through the radiation belts! I mean, c'mon. How many times does this stuff have to be debunked?
I guess it's an infinite number of times, equal to the human capacity to be totally fooled by zero evidence. As I've been quoted so often as saying, eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.
