    There are essentially two camps or schools in the issue of moon
    landings of the 1960s and 1970s:

    * Proponents that believe that moon landings took place.
    * Proponents that reject that the moon landings happened.

    The facts that there is the concept of the Apollo moon landing hoax
    accusations at all is remarkable with lots of information available on
    either sides to decide and weigh.

    Issues of religion with 'moon landings took place' school

    The proponents that believe that moon landings took place base their
    support on scientific theories with help of NASA, and due to religion
    be considered stereo-typically an arts based subject, the factor that
    this could possibly be a factor is not taken seriously. Another basis
    of rejection is due to the plausibility that if this factor is focused
    in the discussions then religion that is an over-arching subject, on
    which western civilzation was founded, could realistically allow the
    proponents that reject moon landings happened, with a chance.

    Issues of religion with 'moon landings did not take place' school

    The proponents that reject moon landings happened, consider that it
    was a fraud, hoax and conspiracy, have not focused on religion being a
    factor since the inception of this school. Religion nowadays is given
    a low priority by the secular state and has been put in the fringe
    with the help of commercial media, and this is possibly why religion
    has not been considered a factor in the moon landings conspiracy.

    Religion Conversion & Religious Wars

    Amongst the contemporary reported global themes in the Western media
    of Globalization, Global Empire, World Citizen, Global Civilization,
    Superpower, and Global Village, there are sensitive less reported
    global themes in the Western media of Religious Conversion, Religious
    Wars, with evidence of developing common agendas and operations
    between CIA, Pentagon, Vatican and Opus Dei as published in Mother
    Jones and Rick Ross. This raises the question and suspicion of
    religion being a possible motive for the moon hoax. It also puts the
    concept of Securalism and the separation of Church and State in the
    United States and Western countries elsewhere into question suggesting
    underground links and agendas. This paradoxical relationship is
    evident in the interesting Wikipedia quote about the Christian Science
    Monitor, "The Monitor (or "CSM" as it is known in the intelligence
    community) is widely read by CIA and other intelligence agency
    analysts because of the newspaper's attention to accuracy and global


    Western civilization historically has a religious basis. This past or
    present religious background of the people and countries that have led
    in space exploration has some similarity. Religion provides support
    for people personally but also binds people in other sectors for
    example in politics, entertainment, and media. There is historical
    evidence of links, alliances, and common agendas between Western
    government secret service agencies and Western religious bodies.

    The moon hoax was possibly caused by the Vatican and Opus Dei as part
    of broad agenda with the CIA and The Pentagon, to help in the
    competition of Religious Conversion and Global Empire.

    There has been mention on Usenet of the linkages between the moon
    landings conspiracy and the John F. Kennedy assassination and also the
    move of NASA to it's location in the Bible Belt area of Houston,

    When you feel the need to wear it. Or, just to be on the safe side, you
    can wear one all the time.

  7. This is a good example of what I fear can happen with SOME (not all)
    of the people who believe in really far-fetched conspiracy theories
    about JFK. This belief that the moon landings never took place
    is what can happen when people really take leave of their senses
    in order to indulge their fantasies. Similarly, some of those
    who start pushing Garrison/Stone-type conspiracies theories about JFK
    such as "the government did it" , "the CIA did it", "big business did
    etc. The belief that huge, faceless masses of people are involved in
    gigantic conspiries is very harmful and these types of things have
    caused major tragedies in human history, with the 20th century
    being the biggest example. That is why it is important we all
    use our heads and common sense to sift through the claims
    and evidence.

  8. A surprising number of JFK conspiracists also believe in other, just as
    undocumentable, conspiracies. It these cases it reveals a broader mindset.
    It's more about their minds than about JFK.

    Ettu brut!

    Unfortunately numerous leaders in history have fallen fate to prey to
    lesser illusions of grandeur that they had previously thought their
    office possessed.

    Also it interests me in the lump-the-kook-conspiracy theorists seem to
    have not much of an opinion on conspiracy in general, like has there
    ever been a conspiracy that they have believed in? Of course not, they
    can't exist. It's like the tooth fairy. Could it be their pompous
    pride that would prevent them from 'crossing over' into the 'unknown'?

  11. CJ,

    Radical thought: Consider turning this into an intelligible sentence.

    Radical thought 2: Consider addressing the actual point that I made.

    Does Ken believe all those in alt.conspiracy.jfk are out to get him?
    Oh it's a question. Hmmm. Conspiracy CONdescenders have problems
    coming up with any history of conspiratorial acts.
    Should I CONdescend that low, or is that too close to being an

    I think it is easier to prove that Jesus Christ was a fake and never
    existed, than to prove that the Moon Landing never occurred
