It may not be the National Day of Reason in Canada, but it’s still reasonable to celebrate the cerebrum and all the excellent things it’s capable of, from telling me when I’m hungry to… well, that’s about it for me. In keeping with Paul’s post that debunked the afterlife (depressing, because I need a place to put my stuff and I’m too cheap for a self-storage unit), here’s my hero SG Collins explaining why 1969 could not possibly have been faked. Note that he’s not claiming that we landed on the moon in 1969 – just that we didn’t have the technology to fake the footage back then. Really! It turns out that we could put a man on the moon, but we couldn’t fake an hour of guys jumping around the lunar surface.
I’ll leave you to ponder that one.
