From my perspective, I could say that I’ve just written a piano concerto that took years to write, be really happy with the achievement and then destroy the entire score! Steven.

Paul, I could simply be wrong, that's true. Now, will you admit and agree that you could simply be wrong?These were my words yesterday, but they have solicited no response from you. It is consideration of the fact that you seem incapable of comprehending a reality other than what you are taught that explains why I am not going to continue a pointless dialogue with you any further. To do so would be a waste of my time,and I have more important things to do.The only point I will pick up on, just because it is so glaringly obvious, is your very poor example regarding my remembering what I was doing on 22 Jan 1969. Can you not see that the very reason that plans, reports, technical documents and details ought to be kept is precisely the fact that people do not remember such things over time? What you should have asked is whether I had kept things that I had produced which were of some importance and value, at least to me. For example, had I kept my Ph.D. Thesis? Had I kept Masters Theses? Had I kept the source code to GU1? GU2? GU2.1? GU2.2? GU3.0? This is the real analogy and the answer to all of those questions would have been 'yes'. Real achievements by the American government agency, NASA, would likewise have been preserved I assure you. It's really a lot less difficult and expensive than producing virtualreality images. :-) Neville. -----Original Message----- From: paul_deema@xxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Mon, 3 Sep 2007 15:10:43 +0000 (GMT) To: geocentrism@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [geocentrism] Re: Earth and science From Neville Jones Sun Sep 2 20:01:40 2007 Paul,If it is the second time that I have had to ask you, then why do you not [desist] persist in maintaining arguments like military-style extreme rehearsal and precautions? It is common knowledge that Armstrong made one and only one attempt at flying the thing, no matter how many were shipped to NASA. ["It's not what folks know -- it's what folks know that ain't so". Mark Twain] There simply were not any extensive rehearsals, as you suggested. As for the crash being a "failure in the attitude control motor," that may or may not be the case, but the fact is that Neil (not Neal) Armstrong could not control it on his one and only attempt to do so in a far less hostile and unforgiving environment than being a quarter of a million miles away with no atmosphere. A USAF pilot being willing to take such a risk without the military precaution that you yourself alluded to? Very stupid. Very stupid indeed. Almost totally unbelievable and incredulous, wouldn't you say? Of course it's unbelievable and incredulous -- that's why so very veryvery few people believe your stories.If your house is silent, then perhaps you ought to get out a little. Speak to people. Get to appreciate that the real world is strangely different from the utopia of everyone being nice and truthful that you might imagine, though youclearly only "learn" that which you want to "learn" and which you already believe to be true. Neville I do get out. If did not mix with normal folkregularly, there is a very faint possibility that I might begin to doubt and distrust everyone. That I might begin to believe that there are vast ethnically and/or financially well defined groups of people enslaving us. That the Devil is waiting in every shadow to ensnare me. There is almost no end to the evils whichI might begin to imagine if I didn't get out.You have to open your eyes, Paul. As Jack did. As I did. Yes, I spent yearsbelieving the Apollo claims and teaching them to others.As for the monitor men, you say, "More particularly, even if they had been so instructed, you give no hint of why this is suspicious or menacing." Actually I do. I am trying to get you to question something. It was you who were making out that so many people could not be misled or dishonest. I was trying to get you to appreciate how easy it is to mislead people, that's all. So then, your are saying that you manufactured this little assertion just to influence me rethinkmy position?"Or it might just be that the operator was required to make a judgement along with the observation. Computers are still not good at that. Are they not? It's a simple IF-THEN DO statement. Neville if this is so, then GU 3.0 should not have been released with only one of the planets (other than Earth) actually working. As they were all engineers how do you know this? , Clearly I am demonstrating my trust in my fellow man. my guess is that their most important function was to report problems to their section supervisor so that rapid action might be taken when required. No one got up and rushed around, though. Pretty standard stuff really. We could have another look at the "real" footage, but oh I forgot, NASA destroyed it. Along with the plans for the Saturn V. Along with the plans for the lunar lander. Oh well, that's probably standard procedure as well, isn't it? I suppose I must address this or you'll accuse me of avoiding some damning 'truth'. Do you preserve every financial, legal and social document pertaining to your life? Can you show me documents which would prove to me that on the night of 1969 Jan 22 between the hours of seven and eleven thirty in the evening, you were not loitering in the vicinity of the home of an aquaintenance with whom it is known that you had recently had an altercation? I thought not. Then thatindicates that almost certainly you were so loitering and with maliceaforethought. See how easy it is? Oh and if that date is covered, I've got lotsmore.Finally, you say, "bearing in mind the state of computer technology in the 1960s," yet you will not accept that this technology is also to be believed as getting acraft to the Moon and back, looking after the life support systems,telecommunications systems, navigation, temperature, ... By your own standards and admission, is this not a trifle hard to accept? Of course it's not hard toaccept. At the same time as Apollo was going on, nuclear submarines were successfully navigating the world not getting lost, controlling their environment, communicating (sometimes), maintaining life support. So were intercontinental aircraft with very small crews. So were a thousand otherendeavours being successfully executed and all with the same or lower level of technology. A good example of what can be achieved with little technology is the wartime bombing of the USA direct from one of the Japanese main islands using little more than paper, string, little bags of sand and a barometer. Oh, ofcourse there were also several bombs. I worked the last 17 years of my career in an environment saturated with microprocessor based systems which did quite complex tasks. I also wroteapplications in assembly language for processors of the era. I have a reasonably good appreciation for what can be done with little if you try hard. It is easy to believe that other much smarter folk could achieve much more. Are you aware that even today, the Mars rovers run on 80C85 microprocessors? This processor archiecture dates from the middle 1970s. It still works. One reference = http://www.xnumber.com/xnumber/Microcomputer_invention.htmand yes I know Apollo considerably predates 1975. All that shows is that microprocessors were not used, thus other means were employed. (The first microprocessor was released in 1971).

You don't actually have to be there to determine what you will see. Agreed:I suspect that your model is in error.
