I've stumbled across many a website similar in tone to this parody. In the days when I taught 'science' as a whole, rather than just my own speciality, I often spent time debunking such conspiracy theories. 'The moon landings were fake' was a commonly held belief and no doubt it still is. Some memes die harder than others ;)

The odd thing about that meme is that it confers no real advantage (except possibly that of being seen to be stupid, which is a debateable advantage at best).
