Bart Sibrel--Bio

Bart Sibrel is probably the coolest moon-hoaxer ever!!

Well, not because of his accomplishments. He calls himself a "filmmaker," and I suppose we can give him that--but 2001's "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon," which he wrote, directed, produced, and edited, is the only one that shows at IMDb. Obviously, those IMDb people are part of a CONSPIRACY against Bart, for he also did 2004's "Astronauts Gone Wild."

Funny quote from that last link: "On July 20, 1969, according to NASA, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon."

Oh, and he appeared as "Himself" in 2001's "Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?". This is the show that keeps popping up on Fox.

Nah. That's not why he's cool.

Remember the guy who got himself punched after harrassing astronaut Buzz Aldrin?

That was Bart.

See, he was following Apollo astronauts around, trying to get them to swear on a holy book that they hadn't faked the moon landings. In September 2002, he cornered Aldrin, finally calling him "a coward and a liar and a thief..."


Bart has since apologized for provoking Aldrin.

Here's Phil Plait's take on Bart, over at Bad Astronomy.

Other than the entertainment value, Bart's a cipher.
