There's generally very little activity there anymore. Remember those huge threads that would happen with people like cosmicdave? I couldn't even rustle up enough Apollo enthusiasm with the Apollo quiz. It appears people are no longer interested in such things. They'd rather play the Word Association Game.

Hmm, probably means another Fox "documentary" will be in the works soon.

The ground for Apollo Hoax has been so well trodden I don't think there's a lot new to be said. Some folk will always believe the missions were a hoax regardless of any proof or reasoning to the contrary. For anyone ancient like me who sat glued to a TV watching the dramas unfold before our eyes it was pure excitement, much more exciting than any hoax could possibly have been and I still get goosebumps thinking about the Apollo 13 recovery from near disaster.

There don't seem to be many of the ATM type posters on other forums any more either. Martian Chronicle used to have lots of folks seeing things that weren't there. We don't hear from them much any more.

I don't read Martian Chronicles much, because I always feel so out of my depth. but even I have something to say about the occasional Apollo hoax person who appears.

admittedly, Glom, I don't know enough about Apollo to be much help in your quiz. then again, I don't play Word Association, either. I'd be really sad if Lunar Conspiracies went away, because when there is something there, it's worth it to me.

The place does seem to be slowing down a bit. I'm itching for a good debate/debunking.

Hey, all it would take would be one visit by the real "Dr." Neville Jones (http://www.geocentric-universe.com/index.htm) and the joint would be jumping again! :D

Actually, N C More's post (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=469832#469832) in Lunar Conspiracies has generated a respectable thread.

Then I find it highly probable that the reason they don't visit here that much is they've read the BA's web page and book, plus some of the critiques by the various posters here (Jay, etc.), and realize they don't, even in Neville's case, have a prayer.

To paraphrase Tennessee Ernie,

"If the BABBers don't get ya,
then then BA will!"

:D

I'd pretty much agree.

The CT / HB'ers really fear open discussion and debate about their claims. Ultimately, they know there will be overwhelming evidence to prove them wrong - and that's the last thing they want.

What they want to is either to:

1. Make bold statements and have them go unchallenged; or
2. Make statements in an environment where they know they will be supported without question.

It only takes a look at the three flavours of sites to prove this statement.

At the HB sites, any dissent is quashed.

At neutral sites, HBs post but run away from any rebuke.

At debunking sites, both sides are encouraged to state their view - but bring evidence with you!
