I thought that it was a sort of inside joke for a LONG time, but it appears that the "Hollow Earth" theory is alive and well smile.gif Just like the "FLAT EARTH" theory, it has found a home on youtube where folks make all kinds of claims about it's "truth". The comments sections are always a hoot smile.gif One of them said something like, "If it's hollow, then it's on a flat Earth!" which I though was great smile.gif But I"m still looking for a vid to combine Bigfoot, Flat Earth and Hollow Earth. Please share if you find one smile.gif

I think what makes me laugh is that they don't seem to comprehend the sheer magnitude of effort that it would take to fake a spherical earth.

I mean, footage from the ISS, anyone?

But I'm sure some evil CIA funded whizz kids are sat in some bunker somewhere editing the footage in Sony Vegas, right?

Yea - but the Flat Earther's are still out there - and they are a fun bunch to argue with. Actually, I've never got involved in a debate of any sort with them, my only question was "how did the earth turn out flat when all the other stars and planets are spheres". I never went back to read any sort of reply.

I've been shocked and amazed at the lengths they will go to in these videos to "prove" that nasa is faking everything, that it's al one big conspiracy/hoax, and that the moon landings never happened, also that we live on a flat earth smile.gif It just gets more out there as you go. There is no limit to what some folks will accept as "truth" smile.gif Facts and science be damned. smile.gif

This is just the tip of the conspiracy iceberg as it were. It's fertile ground for music and movies to be sure smile.gif But to think folks are actually buying in to all this is sort of depressing. The fact that we have enough folks to make thousands of youtube vids on the subject is a really poor indicator on our current system of educating folks imho. But they do have every right to be as wacky as they wanna be smile.gif

No shortage of those guys either smile.gif And they are convinced of their "truth" entirely. They simply close their minds to any other information that doesn't support their view. This guy even goes as far as dissing Niel Degrasse Tyson (http://www.haydenplanetarium.org/tyson/as being basically full of crap. As they say, "There are some folks you just can't reach..."

Here is the youtube "proof" hehehehe smile.gif

I've seen those. Unfortunately one of my friends fell into that because he believed that Stanley Kubric was giving us hidden clues about it in the movie The Shining.

Anyway - the most compelling "evidence" I have ever seen for that argument is that astronaut being pulled up which does look like he is being pulled up from behind with a harness.

Wow. Hidden clues in the Shining eh? Well it takes all kinds to fill up a bus smile.gif I've seen wads of "Evidence" from the wads of youtube vids about this. It's really a bit shocking to me how much of this type of thing exists on youtube. Then again I was taken aback by how much "Flat Earth" stuff there is as well. I expected the wads of Bigfoot of course smile.gif

Everyone has every right to believe in the tooth fairy/etc. if they feel so led. Still, in the modern age, that these ideas are being legitimized and twisted in to political frameworks and historical revisionism even, honestly does disturb me a bit.

It's almost as if we are regressing a bit, intellectually, and starting to accept things that we had rejected as ludicrous, as far back as the MIDDLE AGES. E.G. The idea that the Earth is Flat.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myth_of_the_flat_EarthAnd yet, these ideas seem to be making a big comeback. It wrecks my hope in the perpetual advancement of the human species. sad.gif We still need a LOT of work and wads of us keep taking steps backwards it seems sad.gif

and of course, the HOAXERS!

The "Hoaxers" (folks that say the moon landing never happened)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_landing_...piracy_theories
( A documentary supporting this view aired on the FOX, "the Fox television network documentary Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?[6] claimed NASA faked the first landing in 1969 to win the Space Race."

are part of this "movement of disbelief" it seems. Still, hope springs eternal smile.gif I have faith that people will eventually embrace basic scientific understanding as a way to connect to other humans on a basic level and to build a basic level of understanding on which we can all build wink.gif

*Here is the documentary in question from Fox TV about the "Fake" moon landing smile.gif

This has to be my fave yet!! smile.gif They keep claiming SNOWDEN as their source but don't show any actual documents to help support their claims. Mostly, they just keep rolling towards aliens smile.gif hehehehe.

Seriously ????? laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif
Human species ! laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

As long as they exist, they have the unstoppable need to BELIEVE IN SOMETHING, no matter what that is! And don't forget that we have burned people who were smarter than the rest, in the name of religion.

Maybe we do come out of a giant legume and "The body Snatchers " is an hystorical document laugh.gif

I would suggest to build a new "Santa Maria" and start sailing again, we need to FIND THAT BORDER, WHERE OUR WORLD ENDS cool.gif

Yes! It's all clear to me now. I always thought that Donald Sutherland, besides being a great actor, had some kind of alien aura smile.gif
