Last night the West Rand Astronomy Club had Vincent Nettman, Maropeng's resident "astronomer", present a talk on the lunar moon landing conspiracy. I heckled but then I quickly had to leave as I was getting angry couldn't remain calm anymore.

I posted a criticism on the club's fb page dissing the presentation. Admin deleted my post. Walk away or troll? >:D

Vincent gives this talk to the public at Maropeng and at the Walter Sisulu Gardens :(

The club's chairman and other members are believers of this nonsense hence why they allowed this.

I'd leave, its pointless attempting to bring your point across and they are incapable or unwilling to listen/understand. If it will make you feel better, troll a bit and insult their intelligence but ultimately its probably better to throw your hands up in the air and give it up as a bad job before you get annoyed enough to throttle someone for being an idiot.

In his book Bad Astronomy Phil Plait used a string of readily verifiable facts to dismantle completely the idea that the moon landing was faked. It is revealing that these guys seem so afraid of the truth that their only response to valid criticism is censorship.

You can try to make the above brief points once or twice. If your comments are again deleted, they’re too far gone and no amount of trolling will help. If you like and have the patience for it, start your own FB page explaining why the moon landing was not a hoax — and allow the loonies’ comments there when they start posting, which is sure to happen.

Nobody has ever gotten anywhere by trolling, the best a person can do is setup a blog post with debunking this and aim to have a top google listing when you search for any of there names. That helps at least get people that are on the fence to see there are people who don't agree.

I never new we had moon landing deniers in this country. What is there take on why it's fake?

I have not bothered to read it and I doubt if any forum members will need to - the link is mainly for guests.
