Fake Moon Rock Given to Holland Museum by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin

It's not green cheese, but it might as well be.  A moon rock given to the Dutch Prime Minister by Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969 has turned out to be a fake. The Dutch national museum said Thursday that one of its prized possessions, a rock supposedly brought back from the moon by U.S. astronauts, is just a piece of petrified wood.  Curators at Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, where the rock has attracted tens of thousands of visitors each year, discovered that the "lunar rock", valued at £308,000, was in fact petrified wood. Xandra van Gelder, who oversaw the investigation, said the museum would continue to keep the stone as a curiosity.

It is as if they now know it is impossible to keep this ruse going.. So they're just slowly admitting it one step at a time.

The moon's surface is black with a reflectivity similar to coal.

That means that if you stand on an asphalt road or car park or a similar place and brought in enough light as to make the asphalt appear white, then you'd have a similar lighting scheme to the moon.

In these conditions where something as black and (non)reflective as coal is made white by such a bright light source, can you imagine what coloured or reflective things, like cars for example, would look like?

How would shadows appear in such conditions? The area beneath a large object such as a car would be dead black and a shadow cast by a small object, say a man, would be near insignificant.

The whole spectrum of colour you'd operate within would be very bright indeed.

- Do we see such conditions in the moon landing tapes?

What happen is ....

Look, it's obvious, everyone know that ....

Okay, here's the three most likely explanations:

1. You see, there's this forest on the moon, trees and everything, mushrooms, butterflies, frogs—moon frogs. Everyone know that, just they kept it secret to protect the birdies.

2. When Oswald shot JFK, that magic bullet hit the trees in front of the library and a branch flew up into the air so high it landed on the moon, and Neil Armstrong pick it up.

3. A tree growing on top of one of the twin towers, was propelled by the pancake collapse up to the moon where Neil found it and pit it in his pocket.

It's one of them, and if you says different you is conspiracy theorist who hate America. Traitors.

Dunno, NASA says they lost the originals! :P No bullshit, this is their reason (excuse) that researchers cannot scrutinize their authenticity... because oops, NASA accidentally erased the original tapes of man's first steps walking on the freakin' moon! Yeah right.

There is a site that is loaded with this stuff. You would like it.

Those guys have put together a great database proving the Moon Landing was a hoax, and they show a lot of stuff from Mars too that NASA has covered up.
