I have an old book somewhere called 'Flying Saucers On The Attack'. It's all about UFO sightings and predates the moon landing (whether alleged or otherwise) by several years.
In it, they predict that there could well be a moon landing within something like 20 years (it took far less time than that) but, more importantly, in all seriousness, they predict that life will be found on the dark side of the moon and they could well be greeted by inhabitants when they arrive.
I have often wondered if any reputable scientists or astronomers actually believed that, or even believed that there was a slim chance it could be the case.
Still, would have been cool, eh? Moon men. Yeah, I'd love that.
There's a lot of crap in this world I don't buy. A lot of stuff fed to the masses that stinks of bullshit and just doesn't add up. And there are too many people with too much to lose and so much to gain to make it worth deceiving the world.
But I can also see just how attractive it is to just want to see more in this world than is actually there.
And I want moon men.
