Again who gives a shit what shape it is? The astronomers these days say it’s an oblate spheroid. Not a round fucking blue marble. Who cares? It makes no difference to my life what shape the earth is or what it is at all. The reality is that NASA was started by a Nazi. Everything they produce, say, or do should be questioned.

What about political affiliation has any effect on building rocket engines? Obviously Von Braun managed to build them, so being a Nazi must not have much of any corollary to engineer capacity aside from the fact that the Nazis had superior engineering to anyone else throughout most of their war effort.

I would be more worried about Nazi leaders who founded the CIA and the EU, which directly relate to the evils of their political systems.

It’s government, it’s all political. If you think that NASA is a purely scientific agency shielded from the effects of political bureaucracy, corruption, and lies you should spend some time looking into NASA. A smart Nazi is still a Nazi and just as capable of evil as any other Nazi. How does the ability to build rockets prevent you from faking a moon landing? Or prevent you from lying about space missions to get contracts and launder money? Or prevent you from lying about the shape of the earth? This is a conspiracy forum! Nazis in space should make everyone here think twice!

The conspiracy of NASA in those days was that it was political cover to make the public amenable to massive spending on ICBM and other defense research. The moon landing crap also made for good propaganda.

This is a conspiracy forum, "Nazis in space" belongs on a creative writing for idiots brainwashed by pop-culture forum. If you actually think that is in any way real or relevant you are an idiot and need to stop playing video games and reading 4chan.

Also, the "Nazis evil!" propaganda makes no sense whatsoever when actually examined objectively: they were no more or less evil than any of the other countries or political systems in place at that time, and they killed less people than either the Communists (who win by almost a billion person margin) or the USA and Europe (whose genocides of Native Americans had not definite number but is suspected to rest around 10 million and the taking of an entire hemisphere from them.)

Ironically, in the 1930's when the Nazis were rising, their racial superiority beliefs were not controversial and pretty much mainstream thought among Europeans and Americans. What was controversial were their socialist policies and collectivist economic and political theories. Today, this is completely reversed, except, ironically, for Israel which pretty much practices the NSDAP ideology except with Jews as the chosen race.
