It's not that they're "idiots". It's just that many of them are unable to understand the basic concepts of math, science, and the scientific method itself; so they reject it (while still using the Internet and microwaves, of course).
That is why I, as a soon-to-retire engineer and former schoolteacher, am so annoyed with my country's public school system: it has failed these people, replacing chemistry with "chem-trails" and physics with fol-de-rol.

... and people wonder why I'm so disgusted with the public school system.
~ WHAT?? Wait... aren't you -more- disgusted, though, that our 'golden dawn' of space-agery didn't give us all the rocket-pack commuting fathers and jet-cars for happy nuclear families as seen on the covers of 'Popular Mechanics', or the Syd Mead-esque cars and buildings as promoted in the old 'U.S. Steel' brochures??
~ I know I am. ;)
You didn't get your rocket pack!?! You had to send 340,000 General Mills cereal boxtops to the pentagon and then spread goat blood in a circle on your lawn and it would land.
It ran off of childrens tears
I believe we could've easily had that society. I believe mankind can do anything we put our mind to. Just we're steered into war and hoarding instead of peace and sharing.
I like being here in this dreamworld.

“Moon Rocks” could not be rocks or meteorites found on the moon, period.
If “Moon Rocks” were meteorites found on the moon and brought back to Earth by Apollo astronauts, at least some of the “moon rocks” should contain chondrites, as 86% of meteorites found on Earth do (ref. 1). However, none of the “moon rocks” contains chondrites (ref. 1). It’s impossible that Apollo astronauts found only achondrite meteorites on the moon.
Quotes from Ref. 1: “About 86% of the meteorites that fall on Earth are chondrites,…”
“Two small groups of achondrites are special, as they are younger and do not appear to come from the asteroid belt. One of these groups comes from the Moon, and includes rocks similar to those brought back to Earth by Apollo and Lunaprograms. The other group is almost certainly from Mars and are the only materials from other planets ever recovered by man.”
Budget cuts, Poor management, and a waining public cry for continued missions to the moon..
When popularity wained enough in the public eye, then reasons for going to the moon, became somewhat "difficult" to maintain, hence the new mission parameters were being developed and already being launched into space for an old project that many here are too young to know about called "Skylab" (1973-1979)...
There was not enough "support" for continued public missions to the moon, because it was damn "expensive" to setup, because the Saturn rockets that are needed to launch the vehicles, were complex, difficult to build, very expensive, and took years to make, and the "proof--of-concept" was already done for being able to reach the moon, so the political support dried up...
NASA could not maintain the costs of doing business, and turned further from private funding (public funding) to DOD funding for continued operations, hence it became the unofficial branch of the Government, before even the paint dried on the last Saturn rocket used to launch Apollo 17...
Wither or not we still go there via "black projects", is a moot point, fun to play with, but verifiable proof to support any claims, are nothing more then a theory...
But we did go to the moon, placed more instruments then publicly known about (ever wonder one of the real reasons for so many array mirrors placed there? (think "megajoule LASER/Particle Beams )...
America was not only the first to land on the moon, but the first to have proof of concept of the idea of weaponizing the moon... tracking launch capabilities of another country via relay through the Skylab for "line--of--sight" problems, and a host of other TS classified projects that the last few Apollo missions were tasked with..
We have been to the moon... Many are just too young and too ignorant to learn how to think on their own without this damn computational machine in front of them...
