    I’ve done some research on Project Pegasus for a story I’m writing. Andrew claims children were sent back in time and a photo taken of a young boy in oversized clothes on the day of Lincoln’s assassination is of him.
    My question’s always been: WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS

        Project: Pegasus is what SHIELD called the Tesseract program in The Avengers and Captain Marvel. I wonder if that was an intentional reference, since they also made reference to Operation Paperclip and MKUltra in the movies and shows.

            They need to do a show like this where they quiz them on if they can spot Conspiracy theories vs actual proven conspiracies.

                              Ian: If you give me enough evidence that is circumstantial I can probably be convinced

                              Also Ian: We are absolutely no doubt living in a simulation

                                    The worst argument about moon landing conspiracies is "to beat the Russians".... Even the Russians believe we landed on the moon. I will never understand why people even remotely believe its fake... we brought back rocks and left a mirror on the moon that we bounce lasers off.... not to mention the insane money spent to do so and all the people/companies/organizations involved.

                                                        Have none of them watched the Matrix? One of the "conspiracy theories" about them living in a computer simulation is basically the whole plot of the Matrix.

                                                          Snapchat: It doesn't have to be uploading anything to a government database, it's just straight-up training AIs to recognise faces. Every girl who's done a puppy selfie, thanks a lot, you just made the facial scanners at casinos that much more sophisticated. Rated 5, but there's no reason to bring in government databases.

                                                          Moon Landing Fakery: Not a chance. Someone would've talked by now. Going to the Moon is by an order of magnitude the easier option. Rated 0.

                                                          Pegasus: Actual time travel? 0. Attempted time-travel? Maybe a 1, there were some weird programmes back in the day, but I'd need to see the evidence.

                                                          We Live In A Simulation: Impossible to test, and irrelevant even if we could. Reality is the one we live in. 0.

                                                            Snapchat Theory: 4/5 totally believable, small chance it hasn't happened.
                                                            Moon Landing Theory: 0/5 Y'all on your bulls***** thinking it's easier to fake then to send someone to space, anti gravity is much harder to simulate, and they brought back proof. Don't comment if you don't agree with that.
                                                            Time Travel: 1/5 They may have thought about it, but I don't think they have the means for time travel yet.
                                                            Simulation: 0/5 Highly unlikely, but a nice idea for a show. My beleif as a Christain interferes with this one.
