When conspiracies clash

Neil Armstrong is a real American hero, exemplifying some of what Americans like best in our heroes: modesty about his achievements.  It’s hard to imagine the current culture producing men who would spurn rock star coverage out of deference to team mates who contributed equally but got less spotlight.  But that’s the kind of guy Armstrong was.

The news coverage about Armstrong’s passing got me thinking about the nut cases on the internet trafficking in various conspiracy theories.  There are multitudes of people, for example, who deny men ever landed on the moon.  They confidently affirm the whole moon shot effort was a charade with the landings staged in a studio.

And then there are guys who claim we have secret colonies on the moon where we carry on meetings with aliens and entertain guests from other planets.  It’s all kept secret from the gullible public, either because we aren’t “ready” or lest there be an outcry against their Nefarious Plan.  Now that there’s another gadget on Mars, these same people are seeing aliens and various flying machines in the photos returned from there.

Wouldn’t it be fun to put these two groups of conspiracy theorists in the same room for a bunking party?
