devinator534

One reason that we can prove that we really did land on the moon is the proof in the dust. In the video of Apollo 16 the astronauts are riding a moon rover and the dust that comes up from the tire is floating something that could not happen if it was being videoed on earth.

I'd like to challenge that belief and I would invite any such person to come forward and defend their opinion that dinosaurs are indeed extinct.This will be a short debate (2000 characters max for each argument) on a pretty simple top...
