Don't go too hard on the poor guy until after a proper grieving period ........say.........tomorrow?
Of course, there are conspiracy laws, sending people away to prison for decades. So there must in fact be actual conspiracies afoot somewhere.
But the problem I have with "government conspiracies" (secret UFO bases in the desert, reverse-engineered alien technology, covered-up lunar alien artifacts, massive prison camps being built for future incarceration of the populace, etc., etc.) is that this is the very same government that can't seem to manage to keep anything very secret for very long, can't seem to manage any long-term program without severely botching it up, can't fund any secret program without going 1000% over budget, etc. In short the government can't manage to conspire to do anything efficiently that we know of, so how can we trust them to orchestrate these mind-bogglingly complex conspiracies in secret?
Of course, to the true Conspiracy Theorist, lack of evidence of a conspiracy is proof positive that it exists, proof that the cover-up has succeeded.
Tin-foil hats, that's for amateurs. Steel wool inside a cap of metal screen door material, with a hem of copper foil - that's the ticket.
Don't forget to tighten the chin strap!
I personally know Niel Amrstrong and Gene Cernan... I won't speak for Neil he is a man of Huge integrity, so if he was told to keep a secret I think he would. As for Gene, who has been to the moon and back twice, and walked there once... I think if there was something to hide he would have spilled the beans by now. He is a true space cowboy.
That being said I have NO doubt both these men walked on the moon.
My dad worked on the lunar rover, built parts for it. He had no knowledge what the parts went to at the time. We were watching a moon landing, when my dad jumped from his chair and ran up to the tv set and yelled "I made that part right there!" and pointed to a piece on the rover. I shouls add, we lived in Los Alamos, N.M. at the time, and the management never told the employees what they were doing, just gave them instructions or a drawing and told them to make it. Oh ya, there were armed guards at the entrance to town when we first moved there, but were gone when we moved away in the late 60's, and machine gun towers were being torn down.
Never mind aluminum foil! Grab yourself some chicken wire.. better results for bargain prices!!
Hey, the economic downturn hit us all, us conspiracy theorist got hit the hardest actually.. There's not a lot of money in crazy talk!! :D
Where's The Donald when you really need him? :p
