Keeping Up With Conspiracies in Space
I just read the book Omon Ra by Victor Pelevin. This tragic and very funny book says Russia also faked a moon landing. Before reading this book I did not know there is a documentary that accuses Stanley Kubrik of faking the moon landings for the use government.
The documentary says Kubrik felt guilty about deceiving the world and confessed in the movie "The Shining."
Both times I was in Army, the 1970s and now, I have heard earnest young soldiers tell me how President Obama is going to take away their guns, the FBI introduced AIDS and crack into inner city America, 9-11 was an inside job, fluoride is a Commie plot, and many others.
So how did I miss this one? I knew from several sources that the moon landings were faked, but the confession, Wow!!
