Turns out the "moon rock" given to the Dutch Prime Minister by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin is in fact just petrified wood.
The Fake Moon Rock, housed at Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, and which has been observed under false pretenses by "tens of thousands" of visitors every day, according to Telegraph.uk, is in fact a "Fugazi!"
According to ABC.com, "The discovery of a fake moon rock in the Netherlands' national museum should be a wake-up call for more than 130 countries that received gifts of lunar rubble from both the Apollo 11 flight in 1969 and Apollo 17 three years later."
There is a deep irony in my being able to reference Donny Brasco, a film where Johnny Depp plays Don the Jeweler, who becomes a "fake mobster" saying, "Why don't you go home and give it to your wife or something. What I'm saying is, give it to someone who doesn't know any better because that's a fugazi."
Meanwhile Mr. Aldrin and Mr. Armstrong remain "fake astronauts", and as more and more proof floods in, will be seen as the pawns they are, in a larger scheme. Of course it hurts to hear something is a fake. That's don't make it real, so why don't you take your moon rocks NASA and go home and give it to your wives or something?
"It's a nondescript, pretty-much-worthless stone," said Frank Beunk, a geologist involved in the investigation.
“But the point is you tried to express your views and were prevented by a violent mob. So if you were an anarchist or a scientologist, or a Flat Earth activist, it wouldn’t matter, you weren’t allowed to exercise your first amendment rights and that’s shocking.”
This is the kind of thing that happens when you upload great FE content.
New fences in Flat Earth Fencing, atleast a "team of highly trained monnkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation." I'd prefer "highly trained humans" as we don't come from monkeys, and Monkeys cannot write War and Peace.
A thoughtful article on the Scientific Regression published in May of 2016, deliberately calls out Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye as "the worst enemies of Science's actual practice."
William A. Wilson published this article on FirstThings.com, in which he lays out the inherent flaws to confirmation bias, the desire to publish science which correlates with results, and the inherent fraudulent characteristics this engenders.
"Older scientists contribute to the propagation of scientific fields in ways that go beyond educating and mentoring a new generation. In many fields, it’s common for an established and respected researcher to serve as “senior author” on a bright young star’s first few publications, lending his prestige and credibility to the result, and signaling to reviewers that he stands behind it. In the natural sciences and medicine, senior scientists are frequently the controllers of laboratory resources—which these days include not just scientific instruments, but dedicated staffs of grant proposal writers and regulatory compliance experts—without which a young scientist has no hope of accomplishing significant research. Older scientists control access to scientific prestige by serving on the editorial boards of major journals and on university tenure-review committees. Finally, the government bodies that award the vast majority of scientific funding are either staffed or advised by distinguished practitioners in the field."
"The hagiographies of science are full of paeans to the self-correcting, self-healing nature of the enterprise. But if raw results are so often false, the filtering mechanisms so ineffective, and the self-correcting mechanisms so compromised and slow, then science’s approach to truth may not even be monotonic. That is, past theories, now “refuted” by evidence and replaced with new approaches, may be closer to the truth than what we think now."
Wilson points out that the two most prominent findings in recent years with respect to hard scientific studies, ,have both been recanted.
"Two of the most vaunted physics results of the past few years—the announced discovery of both cosmic inflation and gravitational waves at the BICEP2 experiment in Antarctica, and the supposed discovery of superluminal neutrinos at the Swiss-Italian border--have now been retracted, with far less fanfare than when they were first published."
Finally, Williams aims his critique at the Cult of Science, likens it to a religion, and pinpoints both Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye as popularizers whom have conducted little to no research on their own.
"If science was unprepared for the influx of careerists, it was even less prepared for the blossoming of the Cult of Science. The Cult is related to the phenomenon described as “scientism”; both have a tendency to treat the body of scientific knowledge as a holy book or an a-religious revelation that offers simple and decisive resolutions to deep questions. But it adds to this a pinch of glib frivolity and a dash of unembarrassed ignorance. Its rhetorical tics include a forced enthusiasm (a search on Twitter for the hashtag “#sciencedancing” speaks volumes) and a penchant for profanity. Here in Silicon Valley, one can scarcely go a day without seeing a t-shirt reading “Science: It works, b—es!” The hero of the recent popular movie The Martian boasts that he will “science the sh— out of” a situation. One of the largest groups on Facebook is titled “I f—ing love Science!” (a name which, combined with the group’s penchant for posting scarcely any actual scientific material but a lot of pictures of natural phenomena, has prompted more than one actual scientist of my acquaintance to mutter under her breath, “What you truly love is pictures”). Some of the Cult’s leaders like to play dress-up as scientists—Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson are two particularly prominent examples— but hardly any of them have contributed any research results of note. Rather, Cult leadership trends heavily in the direction of educators, popularizers, and journalists."
"When cultural trends attempt to render science a sort of religion-less clericalism, scientists are apt to forget that they are made of the same crooked timber as the rest of humanity and will necessarily imperil the work that they do. The greatest friends of the Cult of Science are the worst enemies of science’s actual practice."

Spiritual North sent an email to the journalist whom covered the 'Research Flat Earth' Billboard, and PhillyVoice.com opted to Publish it.
The article covers pro and con opinion about Flat Earth, and points out that, "open discussion is a good thing!" Thank you Brian Hickey, and BTW, the earth could be round and flat, I think what you mean to say is you believe it is a sphere... or do you?
