One of the first things I will argue about is that even though many people believed that the landings on the moon was a hoax because technology back then, in the 70s, were not as advanced as today where we can have clear cut image easily. That being said, this is why there are still some who wants to make accusations because not enough proof were provided. This is where comes in the article called ’’Bad Astronomy’’ by Philip Plait who is an astronomer where he makes an analysis on many of the conspiracy theorists claims and provides them with descriptions that proves them wrong. For example, the conspiracy theorists claims that one should be able to see brighter stars when you are in outer space. In the one of the pictures provided by the NASA which stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration who were also the ones that assigned the mission Apollo 11, no stars could be seen.
The generic term has been used by astronomers over the past century for a possible or suspected object. Once the object is found, it is given a real name, as was done with Pluto and Eris, both of which were once referred to as Planet X. If a new object turns out to be not real, or not a planet, then you won't hear about it again. If it is real, it is no longer called Planet X.” This proves that the supposed dangers of Planet X, Nibiru, or other such astronomical object being in the path of Earth’s orbit as well as any claims of governments knowledge of the existence of any such earthbound objects by conspiracy theorists (e.g. Nancy Lieder’s claims (www.ZetaTalk.com)) are based on nonsense and public misconception about a commonly used astronomical phrase.
Many cultures and ancient civilizations have their own theories as to how life began on earth. Some cultures say gods and goddesses created life, in modern times however some suggest that we came through outer space. Biologists do not have a great knowledge as to how life has come about but they are slowly unraveling this mystery thanks to advances in technology. Before examining modern ideas about the origins of life, it is important to see the traditional views on how life began. Many cultures believed that gods or goddesses created life.
Eric Cooke American History Professor Blakenship October 30, 2011 Prospectus Conspiracies of all kinds have intrigued me such as the JFK conspiracy and the 9/11 conspiracy, but this Nazi UFO conspiracy seems very pertinent to Hitler’s war diplomacy during and after World War 2. Many conspiracies have a lot of speculation, but I believe that this particular conspiracy has an extremely good amount of compelling evidence to connect Nazis to UFO technologies. When I say UFO technologies, I am not talking about alien technology, rather unknown objects that were made here on Earth in secret. To learn more about this topic, I consulted a variety of sources. This list of sources includes documentaries, books, recorded interviews, and articles.
“The Egg” and “Bored World” After reading Andy Weirs short stories you would be shocked to learn that he defines himself as a “Science Fiction Author and general science geek”. After reading the story “The Egg” one might think that Weir is some sort of eastern philosopher or theoretical physicist. The story “Bored World” also treads on some pretty deep ideas of what the truth of reality is and mans journey through it. In both of those stories the author is hinting to ideas of long-term character growth, purpose, acceptance, and our inherit oneness with the universe. “The Egg” opens with a man who has just been hit by a car; he has passed away and is now meeting his maker.
Throughout time conspiracy theories have captivated the human mind. There is a certain type of sparked curiosity when we hear a conspiracy theory, and for every historic life changing event, one isn’t too far behind. According to Webster’s dictionary a conspiracy theory is defined as a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators. Whether you believe these theories or not, they exist and in no other time were they more prevalent than in the 1960s. But what was it about the 1960s that made for some of the biggest conspiracy theories of our time that to this day we still talk about and what was it about that era that made these theories so popular?
There seems to be a theme of occult and spiritual forces behind the scenes in the Arizona desert. Are these references offered symbolically, or are these presences an actual reality? 6. Luis Alberto Urrea writes that some of the Yuma 14/Wellton 26 were "aliens before they ever crossed the line." What does this statement mean?
It might appear that the Bermuda Triangle has long been forgotten. The truth is that science research and experiments, professional studies of wreckages along with expedition crews, have continued their ongoing activities seeking extensively to find the truth of what lies at the base of this invisible all consuming vortex. Recent information, based on a video produced by the History Channel, unveils many different approaches of what makes this very large triangular area a baffling mystery. The debates, the disappearances, the data, even a victim survivor, will reveal information that cannot be denied for discounting alien activity. In 1964, a Paranormal Researcher name Vincent Gaddis coined the phrase, The Bermuda Triangle, when he wrote an article for Argosy Magazine.
That all changed when I saw My Teacher is an Alien. I think it was the bright orange and green cover to the book, or that there was an alien on the cover pulling off a mask from his face. I had not been into science fiction before this but something about the cover spoke to me. The only science fiction that I had been exposed to was Star Wars. I would say that I flipped over the book to read the blurb on the back, but I did not.
Audience-writer relationship would have to be that we are all classmates. I don’t know these people personally, but we are all working on this assignment. The writer’s role I’m going for would be to express my feelings on the article after reading the biography of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. I feel that Vonnegut’s war experiences greatly influenced his science fiction writing. This feeling had me digging deep to find things that would relate to the war and the things that Vonnegut might be going through in that time period.
