Moon Landing ...?

The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. It was the fifth human spaceflight of the Apollo programs, and the third human voyage to the moon. Launched on July 16, 1969, it carried Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the Moon, while Collins orbited above.

The mission fulfilled President John F. Kennedy's goal of reaching the moon by the end of the 1960s. In a 1961 speech he had proposed - "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the earth".

The radio broadcaster on this YouTube (really addictive) thinks/believes Apollo 11 did land on the moon but obviously, those who did that video don't think so nor believe it. Read their arguments!Listen to the debate. What do YOU think?

"Mother Teresa an atheist" or a saint?

A few years ago, "Le monde Diplomatique" had a headline on its last sociological page reading:" Mother Teresa, a media saint"
Il y a quelques années, le Monde Diplomatique avait titré en dernière page, page sociologique:
"Mère Theresa, sainte médiatique"

This week,in the Guardian:
And also this video posted on YouTube last december which shows a very interesting interview from a former nun, "an ex-nun on the run" who used to be in one of Mother teresa's the nuneries / facilities.
Et aussi cette video postée sur YouTube en décembre dernier et qui montre avec une interview d'une ancienne soeur "une ex-nonne en fuite" qui était dans l'un des couvents / établissements de Mère Teresa très intéressante.
