Watching the new science series "Mysteries of Apollo".  Last night they were debunking the conspiracy theories NASA didn't land on the moon.  Biggest argument is NO WAY the Apollo crew could not had survived the Van Allen Radiation Belt without thick lead shielding.  A piece of Plexiglass stopped about 90% of the radiation in an experiment.

LMREO!! :lol:

The materials that made up the spacecraft were MORE than enough.

Those doubters really need to get a life! 

Oh the people above in the photo were not allowed to TOUCH the command module. Re-entering Earth's atmosphere  - survived, touching it - OMG might damage it! :o:wacko:

The recent episode of "Mysteries of Apollo" debunked / again proved WRONG the conspiracy theories man didn't land on the moon...the rocks themselves.

There are major differences in the composition of moon and Earth rocks.  Every scientist whom studied the rocks verified they did came from the moon.

The next episode will discussed the 'lost' moon tapes.  They are not lost but accidentally erase for the purpose of reusing them WITHOUT thinking ahead.. Just a stupid avoidable mistake...no conspiracy.

 

Related: How many times have I warned against the discarding of VHS tapes / recorders.  How many without thinking tossing out the tape media that could had contained someone's birthday, wedding, baby first steps, special events, etc. because people wants to be so trendy - newer technology, must have.  Later  a scream lets out OMG!!!

Abraham Lincoln Bible surfaces, offers clues to his religious beliefs

President Abraham Lincoln's 150-year-old Bible was gifted to his neighbor, Rev. Noyes W. Miner, by his widowed wife, Mary. Miner's family has passed it down and recently donated it so the public can now view it.

A Bible that once belonged to President Abraham Lincoln resurfaced 150 years after his death, pointing to the faith he clung to at a pivotal moment in American history and when he was growing more overtly religious.

Lincoln's faith has long been debated over the years. He was known as the "village atheist" as a young man but he gave one of the most explicitly religious speeches ever by a president during his second inaugural address. Scholars say the new discovery helps solidify his faith in his later years.

Was Abraham Lincoln an Atheist?

Many owns Bibles, some handed down from their parents.  Just because people has them doesn't prove they're church going born again Christians.

Lincoln never went into the subject itself so his religious views will be mostly a mystery.  Speculation serves no purpose.  The Bible shown would had been expensive for the average person back then.
