    This thread may sound silly, but what if there is some truth in it.After all, none of us have personally seen space,sure, this sounds like a conspiracy theory, but let's be honest, believing is much easier than not believing.There are so many contradictions in my head that I myself am ready to argue with myself now.In general, I would really like to hear your opinion on all this (space, true or not, your attitude to this).And what is your attitude towards various satellites? And the raptor imager? Like damn it, they were created quite recently, but they have such incredible capabilities, it's incredible.

    Have you never heard of gravity?
    It's another word for the curvature of space.

    But lots of people have been to space, seen it for themselves, spoken of their experiences, sent back pictures, etc etc.

    You might as well say you don't believe in Peru because you have not been there and seen it for yourself. Or the Grand Canyon.

    If you take that mistrustful attitude to the evidence from your fellow men, you will go mad - if you are not mad already.

    It doesn't just sound like a conspiracy theory it is a conspiracy theory, since it would necessitate, that a large number of people have conspired to lie to you.

    There are so many contradictions in my head that I myself am ready to argue with myself now.
    I'm willing to bet that those "contradictions" are the result of misconceptions on your part.

    Excellent notion!

    JackWhite could be a product of some AI program which registered here and posted some strange concepts.

    One has to wonder if he could even pass the ultimate challenge* to his own existence!!
