    Andrea (the lab manager) is awesome.

    I must confess. Any "wingeing" you hear from Brady Haran about how long this collab took is 100% true. We filmed this 4 years ago (!). He's bugged me to publish it every two months or so, so as a way to express my sincere apology I'd like to humbly request that you go watch his video and consider subscribing on Objectivity. Also, if you do so, please leave a comment about how it was worth the wait and he should quit his wingeing. Here's his video. (I didn't know about the Genesis Rock!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvhLBzsDwSQ

    Also check out Joe Hanson's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr28zMXQ3bU

      @Jacob Corrao Do you have any Friends in real life? You are such an annoying person that I doubt it seriously.

          You do realize that a good chunk of conspiracy theories exist or are popular specifically because they were made up and spread by conmen to make money off of the gullible and mentally infirm?

                        Seriously? Why does it or will it ever matter about the exact location where collected, and how the sample was oriented at that location., Or what piece of rock fits another piece of the same rock. Decades of wasted taxpayer dollars, while people are starving to death on our own rock. This is a shameless sin being committed against humanity.

                          What if the conspiracy theorist Is fake and laughing because of all the money they made off of books/ articles/ youtube you watched and read 🤔🤔 what if the conspiracy is to invent a conspiracy so the conspiracy theorists will buy it and give them money?🤔🤔 when was the last time you had an article or book published by conspiracy theorists that did not contain adds and was fully free to the public unlike the mountains of documents of scientific research you can find online with no revenue going to the credited publishers?

                              My teacher had authentic moon rocks. He got them from his friend who is a scientist at NASA and my teacher had to walk around with a suitcase attached to his wrist with handcuffs.

                                                              A few reasons. The biggest being no atmosphere, which means the rocks are basically the same as they were when the Earth formed, whereas rocks on Earth have reacted with these gases.

                                                              That means we can use them to study the history of the physical materials of the Earth.

This is the reason why I follow the pages of those two "friends" you mentioned of yours at the end of this video but I don't follow you channel.

I think you could show her unlimited amounts of evidence and she still would never believe it. but that goes for about anybody that has been indoctrinated with what they know to be fact their whole life. When beliefs are challenged, it makes the brain glitch.

As far as that Neanderthal goes, he embezzled a lot of money from his patrons. He is an ignorant thief. Anyways, watch Eric Dubay 200 proofs Earth is not a spinning ball.

                                                                Grant Farrell - I did watch a funny thing happened on the way to the moon with an open mind. And what I realized was Bart Sibrel used NASA footage, edited parts out of it, then lied about the parts that he edited out. You can go to NASA‘s website and see the uncut version of their official video, and compare it to the one that Sibrel used in his movie, and see exactly where he lied. The only reason he had to lie was because he knew the astronauts went to the moon.

                                                                If you’re too lazy to go look that up for yourself, go find “a funny thing happened addendum” by YouTuber GreaterSapien. He did the comparison for you.

                                                                I await your reply.
