The Sunita Williams Hoax

14 Feb

Hola.

as is the trend these days .. there is a new hoax in town and it does not only concern EARTH .. it concerns Outer Space and the Moon.

well as i was browsing the World Wide Web, something curious drew my attention ..

It was a purported claim that NASA Astronaut Sunita Williams converted to Islam on her return to earth !!

This felt a bit weird to me so i dug in a little deep..

                                                                                                          here is the HOAX picture

Well let’s go about Disclaiming this now shall we !!

1: It claims Sunita Williams went to the MOON on 09/07/2011

Williams went to the International Space Station, not to the moon. The last moon landing (Apollo 17) was on December 7, 1972, and Eugene Cernan is, to date, the last person to have walked on the Moon.

The claims state that she decided, upon returning to earth, she would accept Islam. However, when setting off toward the International Space Station, Williams had taken with her a copy of the Bhagavad Gita and a small statue of Lord Ganesha, and following her return to earth on June 22, 2007, she showed no signs of having converted to Islam. In fact, she claimed Lord Ganesha, notAllah, was looking after her.

  Up in space, the Gita and Ganesha were what kept me grounded. They put life in perspective,” says Sunita Williams in her India Today interview

2: Miracle Images

The various claims also state that Williams witnessed a “miracle” whilst on the moon, where the entire earth looked dark, except for Mecca and Medina, which were lit up like “sparks”.

The images that accompany many of these claims is a top-down picture of the most holiest sites of Islam, the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and the Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina, both buildings looking like bright lights surrounded by darkness.

These specific images have been circulating among Muslims over the internet from as early as May 2006.  Williams launched with her crew on December 9, 2006, and docked with the International Space Station on December 11, 2006,  more than six months after the “miracle” images surfaced.

The actual source for the original, undoctored, images is spaceimaging.com, and are dated December 1999. Although the Masjid al-Haram and the Masjid al-Nabawi appear quite striking in these images, there is nothing supernatural about their reflective white marble construction, and they are not surrounded by darkness.

Watermark-free versions of these images are offered for sale by spaceimaging.com as large 4MB downloads, but whoever was behind this hoax did not purchase them. If you look closely at the doctored images, you can clearly see the watermark.

3: Last but not the least : The Hoax claims to be able to hear SOUND on the moon emanating from Earth ..

As any self respecting physics student will tell you, sound is Vibrations and Vibrations require a medium to travel through.

Space has Vacuum, there is no medium for sound to travel via.

I rest my case.

Plz don’t be fooled by such Hoaxes and start spreading it around.

To someone with even an IQ of 10 you will appear like a GULLIBLE fool .

    Reblogged this on The Mindset and commented:
    Earlier I wrote about how Muslims started spreading lies through SMS and emails that Japan was the first country to ban burqa and tore quran pages and that Muslims were enjoying Japanese deaths. Here is one more lie – exposed – spread by Muslims :

      its not lies spread by muslims, its ignorant people living in pakistan india and all those areas who see or hear sumthin and dont validate it before spreading it. This is one of the duties of a muslim that when he/she hears sumthin, they should first validate it before passing it on, its a hadith in sahih muslim as well as sahih bukhari. the reason such thing was said was so that it does not seem as tho muslims are spreading lies or rumours. agn its not about muslims spreading lies, its about being ignorant n not knowing wat is true and what is false. Rumours are spread by many people all the time regarding many different things, does not mean they doing it on purpose, they are jus converying to or sharing with sumone of what they heard. The fault there is that the person whether muslim or not should validate that info before passing it on, n the problem is if its a muslim talkin about islam then fingers are raised, but if its a blonde girl talkin about sumthin a girl said to her boyfriend, obviously no1 will care

        you are either a liar or an idiot. may be both.
        non-Muslims do this before posting or reposting anything. it has nothing to do with being Muslim, it’s about common sense which you muzzies don’t have and neither have humanity.
