    In the late 90's you were considered a senior level loon for even approaching the topic of the landings being faked. Now it's becoming a pretty conventional "theory" and is not far from being mainstream among the 20-somethings. Sad. But then, I am seeing the very first, very early tendrils of the entirety of WWII being a hoax. It's still in loon territory, but it's early yet.

    Internet take on a life of it's own. Correct or not. There has been denial of the Holocaust for decades. Vaccines are the anti-Christ from the results of one study that was admittedly falsified. You don't hear much of that though, and all the madness stems from that same one "study". Amazing.
    The internet makes it worse, and since every basement dwelling mommas boy an expert in all things they have no clue about, there you have it.

    I agree - the internet makes it easy for people with very fringe views to connect with each other. Before the internet, the one guy who believes in the interstate system of emergency tunnels would have to go through hundreds or thousands of people looking at him with very perplexed faces and more than a few openly mocking him before he connected with the other tunnel guy.

    I am betting some of both.

    I'm sure it'll be both, but I think the WW2 thing will largely be a younger man's game. Too many people currently in their twenties and thirties spent a lot of time hearing first hand accounts from grandma / grandpa for it to really get traction yet. Another twenty years or so and I figure we'll regularly see this paraded about by the younger nut jobs. Another twenty years and we'll start getting "documentaries" on the matter.
