2 + 2 = 5

To commemorate the first moon landing 40 years ago the NY Times ran a story about the 6% of people who believe the moon landings were a hoax.  They share a warped gene with those who believe the World Trade Center fell in a controlled explosion secretly planned and executed by the U.S. government.  The Times quotes “Mythbuster” Adam Savage, whose show debunked these hoax theorists last year:  “They’ll say you have to keep an open mind, but they reject every single piece of evidence that doesn’t adhere to their thesis.”  It is beyond me how one can believe that the thousands of people necessary to accomplish these hoaxes could keep it secret for 40 years.  We occupy different realities.
