When I was twelve I used to be taken it by this sort of stuff.  Since then I have learn to consider each piece of evidence independently, and avoid being taken-in by narrative, dramatic music or charismatic/concerned-looking participants.

Since then you have learn to take each piece of evidence independently? It appears that nether your English or reasoning skills have improved since those twelve year old days.

You avoid being "taken" in by narrative, what the hell does that mean? Does that mean that you're plugging your ears no matter how convincing the narrative might be? What kind of lame reasoning is that?

The video demonstrates that Project Apollo was based directly on a fiction movie. Every element of Apollo is based directly on Science Fiction. NASA even changed the designs of its space suits after A Space Odyssey came out to match the designs in the movie.

I mean really, who had the bright idea of transporting a 360 foot rocket vertically on a custom platform and not horizontally on trucks and trains like the Russians and Nazi's did with their rockets? It's clear beyond all doubt that NASA was going for shock and awe - to reflect the spectacular events in Frau im Mond.

With NASA it's not a matter of what's necessary or functional. It's "what looks good". NASA is a movie studio through and through.

Tom, why do you claim that NASA take their instruction from movie studios? Isn't it more likely that there is some other higher force at play?

It appears the point FErs are making is that if it exists in Hollywood, it must be fake. Patently absurd.

It's a fact that NASA takes its direction from Hollywood. Why else would they change the design of their space suits right after A Space Odyssey came out? Because a low budget movie studio could build a better space suit than millions of dollars of NASA R&D? Give me a break.

It is more likely that NASA gives the instructions to Hollywood, telling them what new technologies they've "discovered" and telling the directors to put them into their films. When NASA finally produces the alien technology they claim to have found (by magic) we're not surprised because we've seen it in the movies.

NASA's space suits have evolved over the years.  Why would you consider that odd?

Yeah, right. Outward design is always most important. Did you know that gray colored spacesuits are 50% better than yellow colored spacesuits? And orange color makes it 20% more efficient as gray. And if you change the some other minor aspect so that suit looks cooler then it automatically gets also better.

How about: "If it is physically impossible, but exists in Hollywood, it's pretty damn likely to be fake."

ah but who decides what is physically impossible? we are arguing from opposing viewpoints. what i believe completely reasonable you see as fantastic. we can't argue plausibility from opinion.
