Default Re: Science Saturday: Astronomical Edition

These guys talk about creationism and the lunar landings in the same breath. The first is subject to scientific enquiry but the second is not. The fact is that most people are scared to death of being thought of as crackpots and are therefore unwilling to admit to doubts about whether man has ever walked on the moon. It is also true that there would have been a major political motive for faking the landings. There is also no way of proving that the landings did in fact take place. If, using the same technology available in the 1960s, NASA (or anybody) is able to replicate the landings, that would take the wind out of the sails of the lunar-skeptics. Until that is done, there is enough reason to be skeptical. If these guys are real skeptics, they should be willing to explore the evidence that runs contrary to popular opinion. It is simply not enough to debunk unpopular theories by questioning the evidence presented -- true science involves finding your own evidence and subjecting it to rational enquiry.
