Space travel is impossible and all space programs are a conspiracy to free up money for space based weapons. I'm pretty sure that's the gist of this:

In reality space travel is technologically impossible. Man has never been to space.

The motivation of the Conspiracy is a militaristic one. This is why all astronauts are members of the military. Once you create an illusion of the ability to reach space no other nation will touch you. There is no real research going on at NASA. It's a highly funded propaganda studio designed to create the illusion of America's grasp on space travel. A Saturn Rocket is 95% identical to an ICBM, after all.

Plus you get ignorance of astronauts, and a cold war era comparison of space programs (EU, Japan, China?)


ETA: Oh, Holy Crap: Here's a supporter who says the conspiracy is bigger than the US and Soviet governments and are hiding the fake space programs from those governments:

When it was discovered that sustained spaceflight was impossible, it was hidden from the Soviet government so the conspiracy could profit on the perception that spaceflight is possible, and the perceived need to "win" the space race to prove global superiority. The same paradigm occurred when the Americans discovered the same thing; those involved with the initial attempts at spaceflight joined with the conspirators on the Russian side, both governments being completely oblivious to the intrigue that was developing around them. Since the 60s, the perception that being able to make it into space was important blinded the governments to the truth about the impossibility of spaceflight, and both were willing to pour massive budgets into making it a reality, budgets that they didn't know actually went towards sophisticated technology that allowed the conspirators to fake spaceflight and pictures of space, while having plenty left over to pay those few who knew the truth, and make a tidy profit themselves.

I'm willing to bet that these clowns also believe that the USG is covering up the existence of Aliens that crashed at Roswell in the 1940s.

The only Apollo Hoax believer that I ever met in RL told me all about how the USG had been reverse engineering advanced Alien tech since the Fifties and yet lacked the ability to send three blokes in a tin can to the Moon in 1969.

How do they (Hoax Believers) do it?

I seen several woos devolve into arguing with themselves on various forums since I became addicted to following the rantings of CT's.

nope, those flat-earth forums are quite serious, populated by flat-earth believers who are also quite real

you may be confused with another flat-earth site, which is in fact a joke

Quote:
Doctors do not cure they treat and often do more harm then good
We don't need doctors
watch this video and learn to cure yourself
Its free
Don't pay doctors to kill you because they will put poison in your body using unnatural method.
Our body is able to defend itself from any kind of disease

The trick is to avoid meat
and go vegetarian
not convince? watch this documenatry and you will be able to grasp it.

Whenever a 9/11-related article is posted to reddit, you can count on it devolving into conspiracy woo, especially when it's related to building 7. If you're looking for Stundie nominations, it's a goldmine. reddit user Giuliani posted this gem in this thread linking to a story blaming Giuliani's placement of diesel tanks for causing the collapse of 7, showing the usual tr00ther ignorance.

Originally Posted by Giuliani

I know of nothing else that burns like that, and you see it burst out of the side of the floors near the top around 30-40 seconds before the building collapses.

No no! Keep it nominated! He's created a new twist on why the buildings were built with explosives:


Quote:

The idea that the best way we'd have to oppose a Soviet invasion of NYC would be to drop buildings on their heads is Stundie-worthy all on it's own!

my initial thought was not that it would be intended as a weapon against the soviets, but rather a scortched-earth tactic to prevent them from utilizing a 1300-foot vantage point, or all that radio and television broadcast equipment


of course that doesnt mean fan klub put that much logical thought into it, lol

Yeah, but then why refer to it as a "secret weapon"? It's not really a weapon, and scorched earth tactics have a long tradition in war (particularly when you consider the Russians' history), so it really wouldn't be secret.

Besides which, I don't expect many of the buildings would still be around, after the pre-invasion bombing and the post-invasion street-to-street fighting. How many tall buildings were left in Stalingrad or Berlin after the fighting there?

If we didn't count stuff that had previously been debunked, we wouldn't have so many nominations. Of course, many of the best candidates are of the self-debunking variety.

In the "General Skepticism and the Paranormal" forum thread Are the real psychics hidden from us?, maatorc contributed this on Sunday:
Yes, I will give you a clue -
The personality behind the 'Shake-Speare' canon was in his day known to be the secret head of all the esoteric and occult organizations in the Western world.
He had direct contact with and authority from the highest levels of the English Crown who secretly supported him.
'Shake-Speare' means 'Shaker of the spear', 'Pallas Athena', protector of truth and justice.
William Shakspur did not write the plays.
The personality 'Shake-Speare' IS such a person.
He most recently lived in California and controlled the most active and successful esoteric operation in the Western world since the original English renaissance of the 16th. and 17th. centuries.
His authentically authorized successor presently preserves and transmits his work and teachings from a USA southern state.
I've included his entire post to preserve the context. If I had to chose one sentence for the award, it would be "The personality behind the 'Shake-Speare' canon was in his day known to be the secret head of all the esoteric and occult organizations in the Western world."

Just checked the link and it takes me to the nominated quote. Might want to screenshot it just in case - I don't know if that site does regular cleansing like LC used to.

I notice non-english speakers always spell "of course" as "off course" (it even happens in some video games), which is confusing.

So it was an inside/outside job. Or an outside/inside job. I'm so confused.
