These Pluto Truthers Insist NASA Images Are Fake

It wouldn’t be a monumental achievement in human history without some truthers on the internet calling it fake. And NASA’s historic Pluto flyby is no different. The conspiracy theory crowd has descended on the event as their too-good-to-be-true choice this week. Wake up sheeple! Pluto is just a dog at Disneyland!

As just one example, look at this video put together by YouTube user Crrow77.

“Now this is just an insult to your intelligence,” the narrator says, ostensibly referring to NASA’s Pluto flyby conspiracy. The creator of the video claims that the images we’ve seen of scientists loading a camera onto the New Horizons probe is, “probably sitting in a Burbank soundstage somewhere.”

His evidence? Well, he took his own telescope out in his backyard and pointed it at Jupiter. And since he can supposedly get a clearer image of Jupiter in his backyard at 400 million miles than NASA can get of Pluto at 9 million miles (which he can’t) then this means it’s all a hoax.

He may as well be screaming “enhance” at his computer monitor like he’s in some fake-ass 90s techno-thriller. Wake up America! Stop being so hashtag gullible! DON’T BELIEVE THE HOLOGRAMS!

As TruthIsNeverTooHorrible helpfully explains, Pluto doesn’t even exist. It was invented by the Illuminati. That’s just science:

BASICS

ASTRONOMY FOR DUMMIES - The ONE BASIC FACT - read and weep about yourself

Any celestial body that can not be observed with a telescope located ON Earth, is fake.

This one basic fact implies that for instance Pluto (the first example among millions) is an invention created by the illuminati.

Decades later the illuminati used NASA and the soviet space agency to serially produce Pluto type of hoaxes.

There are still others who believe that NASA has indeed captured real images of Pluto but that there’s a possible coverup involving aliens and buildings on the surface.

We here at Gizmodo accept the fact that we’re sheeple and believe that NASA really did fly past Pluto in an astounding display of human ingenuity. Despite repeated demands from the internet, we refuse to wake up.

If you take the time to look into the reasoning behind the arguments saying Nasa is delivering fake photos, evidence, etc, it’s not crazy at all. No need to hate/fear/mock/twist the words and intentions of those who say it’s not real. —— Unless of course you are afraid they do have a good point and you don’t want to have to incorporate that good point into your world view because it messes with the foundation of everything. I’ve researched the theories saying Nasa is doing pretty much nothing but hoaxes and they make great points. I’m inclined to say they are more than likely right. And it’s not because it’s “too good to be true” or I don’t believe in science itself. To the contrary - I had always assumed Nasa was “true” until I got curious and gave a respectful listen to those who say it’s not. Those who say Nasa is lying are also using science and the scientific method to arrive at their conclusions. Methodically disproving false evidence is as valid as any proof. The more you mock an opposing body of research rather than hear them out - the more you demonstrate insecurity surrounding your own preconceived notions. —— But I don’t mean to disrespect that insecurity - actually when I first realized Nasa was almost surely lying about almost everything it was a shock to my system, and incredibly - sad and uncomfortable. But I’ve adjusted just fine. A few days of disorientation in regards to my world view and I’ve regained my equilibrium. It’s ok - on both sides - to believe or to question - life will continue for you. When kids realize Santa isn’t real it can be a shock - but in time they adjust just fine too. It’s ok to stop mocking and hear out the theories - no matter what conclusions you personally make from it - it’s ok to respect and to even consider new ideas that challenge your own. If you really hear them out (read , watch - whatever) you may not “switch sides” but I guarantee you will realize they make a strong case. And you may let go of your defensive need to mock and ridicule - conflicting ideas are the stuff of life - and of the progress of scientific knowledge.
