…because some serious weirdness has invaded Respectful Insolence.
If you want to know where, just look at these comments that popped up overnight about an old post of mine about the moon landing in 1969.
Wow — looks like someone needs to have their meds adjusted…
A quick google search yielded a wikipedia article that sheds some light on these loons
Oh. Oh, my. A genuine, honest-to-goodness “Moon landing was a hoax” conspiracy theorist? I’ve wanted to take pot-shots at one of these for YEARS.
It’s soooooo tempting, I tell you. So very, very, very tempting. And I’ve got an angle they’ve probably never considered before, too.
Perhaps when I get home tonite….
Are you kidding? I get *thousands* of emails like that. I stopped replying to them years ago, and stopped saving them not too long after. It was (to coin a word) insane.
I still deal with these folks often enough. Matter of fact, I just recorded a “Brains on Vacation” segment of the SETI podcast “Are We Alone” about this, and it’ll air on Discovery Sirius radio on Wednesday. I’ll have links to it from my blog when it’s available for download.
If Osama Bin Laden claimed to put a moslim on the moon I would not belive him either.

Your blog rocks Orac! Action, adventure, conspiracy (theories) and no one saying nasty things about each other. Totaly made my day.
Just before the guy you cited posted, there is a long post by “aredo” with links to the evidence that NASA is also hiding information about life elsewhere in space. Who can we trust anymore?
Here’s a great comback against the moonlanding conspirists:
