Crew members of the 1986 Challenger...well, just read this if you want to

First, if even the slightest tint of a conspiracy theory isn't your thing...you may want to just close out of this.

Me personally, I love them, they're very entertaining and some even get the wheels turning (but most just turn out to be extermemly dissapointing, it's like an addiction for me, I mean I know for the most part the topic I'm reading on is bullshit but I keep going and going and then I'm hugely let down so to get high again, I move onto the next theroy )

Anyway, some of these pics are creepy with how dead on they are (and it's the reason I'm posting this - that and the macthing names).

The names being spot on are what killed it for me but it would be interesting to email the one dude to see if you get a response.

Also, I can't give any insight or credibility into any of this so just enjoy the show.

I'm also locked down at work so I can only post the link:

I look at the ears. The ears are different. Can't be the same guy.

The asian guy has the same ears, but then it says the older picture is of the astronaut's brother, so it makes sense that they'd have the same ears.

I admit I got a kick out of reading that. I always enjoy a good conspiracy theory and the more random and unnecessary, the more entertaining.

Come on, deniers. I'm supposed to believe there are two different people named Michael Smith? Come on, I wasn't born yesterday.

Yes, crew members of the 1986 Challenger. Read this if you want to. Because you're totally alive so you can read it!

If I was faking my own death with a space shuttle explosion (i assume that's what the site says, I'm not clicking the link) I would definitely keep using my own name.

I just researched Richard Scobee and they are two different people. Ancestry.com is not the most reliable way to track people. Unless you want to believe that the US concocted an entire family history in 1962 for Richard on the off chance they'll need to replace the life of another Richard Scobee 25 years later, the theory is BS.

I haven't looked at the site, but the similarities in the pics posted by RoyalTea are pretty uncanny.

While I only skimmed the entire story, the one problem with it is there seems to be no motive for them being alive. What's the conspiracy?

Same here. Ears don't lie. The ones who are supposed to be the same have different ears. The others are pictures of siblings. Wow, how convincing.

And echoing VHS? remark, what is the conspiracy? If OP is interested in the entertainment value of conspiracy theories, where is the entertainment here? That there are a couple of people alive who look like older versions of dead people with the same name? If they are the astronauts, how are they still alive, and why? Why fake a shuttle disaster? And if you're going to fake one, why do it with the one you've created the most press coverage for by having a civilian aboard? And then why send them back into the world with their real names?

Most conspiracy theories can be easily shot down. This one doesn't even get off the ground.

Cool. But since you are not Christa McAuliffe, that's not really germane to the discussion.

Christa McAuliffe did not have enormous genitals.

Bandoman does not have enormous genitals.

Coincidence?
