I am now running my annual July fund-raising campaign to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the establishment of Behind the Black. For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. These companies practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.


Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

On the air, twice!

Tonight is radio night here at Behind the Black. I will be on two different syndicated radio shows, one in the United Kingdom, The Moore Show, followed by two hours live beginning at 10 pm (Pacific) on Coast to Coast with George Noory.

Both interviews should be a lot of fun. I intend to talk a bit about today’s SpaceShipTwo flight and how that lays the groundwork for the future of space travel. The subject of climate will also be a topic on both shows.

Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    Congraguations, it is good to see that you are on Coast to Coast!

    Great stuff your exposition on the Moore show. The appetite whetted with John Batchelor was satiated (temporarily) with the extended discourse with Kevin Moore. I need a ITunes Podcast feed to all your interviews. “Curiosity wins”.

    Great show with George, and i cannot believe a high school is teaching we didn’t go to the moon, but i seen video of people on the streets of NYC being brainwashed that we did not go and they already attacked our astronauts calling them liars I heard. i have a article from yrs. ago that said they also thanked God for making there and before they put the flag up they did Communion to God and THAT was hidden from the public from the start so it is NO surprise that they would teach that we didn’t go at all. These teachers must be fired. What did the whole country watch that day if we didn’t go?>ask the ones not even born yet that are starting this lie

    re: moon landing real?

    Just heard you on c2c, I think what they are saying is that we did go to the moon, but the video that was shown to the public was actually shot in a studio, as Kubrick was working on “2001- a space odyssey” then…. Possibly they were afraid to show the public live film feed in case something really horrible happened. This is Jay Weidner’s theory based on his study of Kubrick’s life and films.

  • The landing was real, the live television footage shown was real, the film footage released later was real. Nothing was shot in a studio.

    Every claim about anything being faked is a lie. Pure and simple.
