Men on the Moon: The Fake Lunar Landing and Other Hoaxes the Masses Fall For

Updated on June 26, 2012

40 Years of Pulling Our Legs

Well, as you probably know it is the 40th anniversary of man supposedly walking on the moon. I have seen the statistics showing fewer and fewer people believe this actually happened and I just have to say -- IT'S ABOUT TIME YOU WISED UP, AMERICA!

Since people are coming to their senses on this one -- I believe the percentages are 14% today who question the authenticity of the moon landing compared to 11% in 1999 but I am not going to bother to look it up -- let's take a look at some of the other whoppers the mainstream media and the powers that be have had us swallow over the years...

Clear evidence of the faked moon landing.

There Were Once Creatures Called Dinosaurs

I am pretty sure this was made up by Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera in order to have background for The Flintstones. How do we know that dinosaurs supposedly existed? By the fossils, of course! But if you bury a dead animal, I don't care how hard you pack the dirt down, when you dig it up later all you have is a gooey mess of decaying goop. No fossilized bones. Nothing to carbon date. So if there were dinosaurs, where is the goop? Hadn't thought of that, had you? You are probably beginning to see how clearly you have been hornswaggled...

We Are Running Out of Fossil Fuels

Were you not listening? There are no fossils. My personal theory for where oil comes from is that the insides of the Earth is hairy. If you go a few days without washing your hair, it gets oily. This is what happens inside the earth as well. True, I have no actual evidence to support this, but you must admit it makes more sense than giant lizards (or giant wingless birds depending on which "theory" you want to believe) that turned to stone when buried then went all mushy and became oil. They must really think we are fools!

Flat Earth Vs. Round Globe

I think it is safe to assume that all intelligent people know the Earth is flat. Otherwise we would all be constantly walking uphill or downhill. I think we would notice something like that. And wouldn't your picture frames and candlesticks all slowly slide off the mantlepiece if the Earth were round? Especially with the supposed spinning the Earth does everyday! Is that ridiculous or what? I don't feel dizzy. Do you feel dizzy? And anytime you run into one of those "global" nutjobs, the first thing they do is bring up pictures taken from the Moon. Well, duh, Einstein, I think we already went over that!

Global Warming

Okay, it should be getting easier and easier for you to see through the veil of deception. Since we now have determined beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Earth is flat and not a globe... well, that pretty much does in the whole "global warming" issue. So what about the melting polar ice caps, you ask? Well, haven't you been paying attention? No globe = no poles. No poles = no ice caps to melt. Simple mathematics! Of course, I haven't quite figured out how to explain Santa Claus if there is no North Pole though...

Totally Unbiased Poll

Do you believe man has actually landed on the moon?

      After reading this I went to the website for the flat earth society. Their comment was that we feel gravity because all the discs (the sun, moonand stars are also discs, by the way) are being pulled upward by the gravity at the center of the universe. I wonder then who keeps all the dics perfectly aligned to that we see them at just the right times?

      Oh, and I am not kidding about those doughnuts. Actually the earth is just a big, fat disc-like jelly doughnut, by the way.

      The chocolate coating $ sprinkles are on the other side, so go get them before this becomes general knowledge! LOL!!!

      Great hub!

      I already disappeared, when I absent-mindedly walked off the edge of the Earth. Do you know that's where they hide all the doughnuts? I guess the people on the other side of the disc don't have cholesterol yet, which is probably another falsehood, since I read a science textbook from 1929 and there was no mention at all about cholesterol in it!

      Cheers!

      And keep your feet planted firmed in your tongue in cheek!

      Also, there are no stars once you get over the edge! Just moons!

      Hahaha! Hope you don't disappear in the middle of the night, my friend! I need more stories from you before you do! Way to stray from the herd!
