This gives Poe's Law a run for its money...

The above link is to an expose at claims that the Moon is a hoax.

Not the Moon landings, mind you, but the Moon itself.

What this is I don't even

This can't be real. It just can't. It's gotta be someone making a (stupid) point or something.

You need just check the main page of the website. The whole thing is a satire of unqualified historical revisionists.

Poe's law?
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Poe's law, named after its author Nathan Poe, is an Internet adage reflecting the idea that without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between an expression of sincere extremism and a parody of extremism.[1]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe's_law
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

It's a joke.

It has to be.

No one can be so stupid as to think that some moon conspiracy doctored primary sources all the way back into antiquity in order to match their hologram.

Edit -- Went digging around in the site some more -- one of their articles is entitled "Fuhrerpants."  I'm pretty sure that qualifies as clear indication of parody.

Second Edit -- Their expose of the Committee for Open Debate on Pants In Eastern and Central Europe seems legit, however.   :tongue:

Corollary to Second Edit -- I just turned this into a pants thread.   :-X 

Second Corollary to Second Edit -- This post is so meta.
