I predict that, if either Hoagland or Bara ever respond at all, they'll claim to have an earlier version of AS11-38-5564, and that NASA has since airbrushed out the ziggy. To which the swift answer would be Why then is there more noise on your version?
Esteban Navarro Galán posted the link to Hoagland's FooBoo page (thanks, Esteban, we're blocked) with the comment "¿What´s up with this?" (love those spanish upside down ?s), getting, so far, not much reaction. I'll update as appropriate.
On Sunday Mike Bara facebooked "Anybody have a recording of Coast to Coast AM from 7/20/2012 when Richard C Hoagland was on in the news segment talking about the Ziggurat on the Moon?" --explaining in a follow-up "just wanted to see if Richard mention "his" pyramid came from me lol." Somebody called Dil Smith posted the Astroguy video (thanks, Dil, whoever you are) with the comment "why would you want credit for an obviously photoshopped and fraudulent image? Dont you guys ever get tired of deceiving the public with your hoaxes?" Nothing yet in response. Stand by for the innuendo that Dil must be homosexual.
CigaretteMan started a thread on Above Top Secret which is at three pages as I write. Hoagland gets no support there.
Lincoln started a thread on Keith Laney's Hidden Mission Forum titled "Mike Bara: copyvio perp turned victim" (this refers to the probability that Mike will use some of Keith's copyrighted work in his next book.) That thread has not so far stretched beyond one page.
Phil Plait tweeted "Heh. More from
Wildcard (a reformed former Branch Hoaglandian) started a blog called The Tinfoil Hat Brigade and gave us some more exposure. I don't mind at all, Wildcard.
Astroguy and I both had a bit of fun in the Coastgab forum, which exists to mock the hosts, guests and topics of Coast to Coast AM.
.....and speaking of which, here's the text of my protest to George Noory and Lisa Lyon (Exec. Prod.):
Hoagland's appearance July 20th was a disgraceful exercise in self-aggrandizing mendacity. That "ziggurat" has been around the anomalist web sites at least since February last year and probably since 2003. It was not his discovery, and it has now been shown to be fraudulent.No response so far. They really don't care. All readers are encouraged to send similar messages.
He also said that his "studies" during the eclipse of May 20th proved that pyramids, and the core of the Moon, amplify torsion wave energy "enormously." The problem with that is that his so-called "studies" were actually done in a restaurant at Sandia Peak, NM, thousands of miles from the nearest pyramid and 240,000 miles from the core of the Moon. The expression "junk science" is hardly adequate as a description.
You see, he had begged his faithful fans on Facebook to send him cash to finance a trip to Egypt with Robin. Plenty did, but not enough, so he canceled the trip. So far he has not offered refunds.
DO YOU FIND HIS BEHAVIOR ACCEPTABLE? PLEASE RESPOND.
